“Chocolates and lingerie are definately the easiest way to impress me on Valentines day.  My boyfriend is very anti-valentines though, so I’m hoping I will get a ‘treat’ the day after. It doesn’t have to be something super romantic, a dog lamp will do just fine.”

Graze over here please

Why did we not know about this before???

After seeing the Graze.com offer in the Metro a couple of weeks ago, team Push PR ordered our first free box. A fan off all things healthy the idea seemed great and everyone loves free food! Of course we had every intention of cancelling the order as it seemed a bit extravagant getting fruit, nuts and seeds delivered to the office instead of just nipping out to the amazing Exmouth Market like a normal person, but two weeks on an addiction is on the horizon.

Last week’s graze box was devowed before any snaps were taken, but we grabbed this pic off the Graze website.

In our first box we received four punnets of afternoon nibbles:

Olive, rosemary and siciliano pesto focaccia (bread)

Pineapple punch (two of your 5 a-day. Dried pineapple with raisins)

Korean chilli rich crackers (SO TASTY)

Americas nut mix (almonds, brazil nuts, pecan nuts)

These boxes arrive at your desk in the post, on the date you’ve requested. Each punnet gives you information on the contents along with little hints like (eat me first, I’m fresh) and (2 of your 5-a-day). Oh and the details don’t stop there – no no no.

Each box comes with a little personalised booklet (with your name on it!) welcoming you to your box and talking you through all the contents (with facts and figures for all those who want them). You can also go online and rate the food you received and all the other options, that way if you didn’t like something but loved something else they can pack your box accordingly.

It just gets better and better – if you would like to trial a free box then simply head to Graze.com and enter this code – L8K6X1B3

That’s the afternoon’s munchies sorted then.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick blog post to say sorry if we don’t upload as much as usual. We are kicking off 2011 with quite a bang, some changes are happening and in the next few weeks things are going to look rather different.

So please do bare with us and we will do the best we can!

Hopefully this treat will make up for our absence- Enjoy.



Jasper Garvida collaborates UpperStreet.com for SS11

We love it when two fantastic brands come together. Bespoke shoes and womenswear designers = match made in fashionable heaven.

Acclaimed luxury womenswear designer Jasper Garvida turns his very capable hand to shoe designing for SS11 with the help of bespoke shoe company Upper Street.

 Inspired by Paris in 1951; Jasper Garvida’s SS11 collection entitled ‘Belle’ is the epitome of femininity. With elements of the beatnik movement combined with the silhouettete of Degas’ ‘Ballet Dancers’, Jasper incorporates slim-fitting tops and organically interlaced bodices with full pleated knee-skimming skirts and sweeping curves. What better way to match this stunning collection than beautiful bespoke shoes specifically designed to compliment ‘Belle’.  Skyscraper gladiators with natural snakeskin, double ankle straps and studs toughen this feminine collection and add a show stopping hard edge to the outfits; bringing us a look of confident womanhood and power.

The ready to wear collection will be available February 2011 online at www.jaspergarvida.com

Priced at £295 these heels are available in sizes 2-10.
