Get your Glotion on!

We know there aren’t any real miracle workers on the make-up shelves, no matter how much the TV commercials  promise, but L’Oreal’s LUMI Glotion is a definite winner in our book. Promoted as a ‘glow enhancer highlighting lotion’ it adds a luminous sheen to skin without making the wearer look like the Tin Man.

It can be worn on its own or under make-up and is a godsend for skin with small blemishes. If you buy nothing else for this upcoming holiday season, get a tube of this stuff.

Cayman cigars

There is nothing finer than a good cigar…or so the diehard fans would have us think. Always associated with luxury, cigars have been revered by celebrities and thoughtfully chewed upon by such icons as Winston Churchill.

Cuba, the Dominican Republic and now the Cayman Islands are producing top quality cigars. Yes, indeed – the  Cayman Cigar Company is a reality. Leaves are grown locally and make their way from farm-to-lips through a well-vetted process.

Cigar aficionados have confirmed that these are great cigars and best thing of all, 100% of the net profits are donated to charity.


If you ever wondered what would be the result of an IKEA-meets-bean-bags marriage, the answer is Yogibo. We went into Markson’s Furniture looking for a dresser and walked out with a Yogibo support pillow under our arms. There is just something about the feel of these creations that is absolutely irresistible.

You can get pillows, pods and (of course) bean bags in a bunch of bright colours to jazz up your home.

Whether you are a gamer, a lounger or simply want to appear ultra-hip and cool by transforming your living room into something resembling the Google staff room, Yogibo will make a believer out of you.

Vinyl is back

Remember the days of records? Even if you don’t, your parents should. LPs, EPs, 45s and 33s were the language of yesteryear’s music media before tapes, CDs and MP3s.

It seems that if you wait long enough, history will  repeat itself and that is the case here. In 2017, over 14 million vinyl records were sold – the highest number since 1991. Here’s another surprise: nearly half of the buyers are under the age of 25. What does this mean? It’s time to start digging through the secondhand record stores and buy yourself a hi-fi .
