All of us have our different preferences in art and style. We hope to achieve a marrying of art and style with function regarding luggage, since so many of us now travel around the U.S and the world! Because 70% of luggage is dark colored and generic, it is so easy for people to mistake luggage on the carousel.

At UGOBAGS, we allow people to design the look of their luggage, so their luggage becomes unique and an extension of themselves.

THE UK’S FIRST & ONLY COMPLETELY NATURAL PROTEIN INFUSED WATERS

www.proteinwater.co

INSTAGRAM | FACEBOOK | TWITTER

NEW RANGE OF DRINKS DESIGNED TO MAXIMISE HEALTH, WELLBEING & PERFORMANCE IN LIFE

Protein Water Co (www.proteinwater.co) is an award winning innovative British brand, which produces the UK’s first and only completely natural protein infused waters. Free from added sugar, artificial additives and preservatives, the whole range is designed to maximise health, wellbeing and performance in life.

Its Muscle Maintenance range delivers a mighty protein hit to support the whole body: 20g of protein in each bottle; over a third of the UK’s suggested daily intake.

But protein is not just for the gym. It boosts energy levels, helps manage weight, works to stabilise blood sugar levels, improves concentration and supports the absorption of important nutrients.

The range is perfect for anyone looking to improve their performance in life, whether they need more energy to juggle work and home or just hit their professional goals in a high-powered job. Unlike protein shakes, Protein Water is light, requires no prep or cleaning and can be put in a gym or work bag and enjoyed on the go.

Protein Water also provides a way to enjoy a high level of protein without the calories. It has an excellent nutritional profile, only using premium whey protein isolate, which provides the highest percentage of protein per gram than any other protein. It delivers 20g of protein at just 100 calories, satisfying hunger and keeping drinkers fuller for longer.

Every 500ml bottle combines the highest quality protein with spring water, delivering a clear, crisp and refreshing taste with absolutely no nasties. It has a clean and GMO-free ingredient profile with no added sugar, zero fat, and absolutely no artificial sweeteners, flavours, colours or preservatives.

The Protein Water Co Muscle Maintenance range has an RRP of £2.35 for a 500ml bottle and is available in three unique varieties:

Grapefruit & Yuzu
Cranberry & Raspberry
Coconut & Mango
The Protein Water Co Muscle Maintenance range is available in Boots, Whole Foods Market, Fenwick, Kettlebell Kitchen, HIIT Kitchen, and independent retailers nationwide, as well as directly from the website www.proteinwater.co

The Founder Story

The idea behind Protein Water Co was born whilst founder Henry Western was travelling the UK as a professional motocross rider. He became frustrated with the lack of functional and naturally low-sugar soft drink options available on-the-go. As a health conscious but time-poor sportsman, he knew the benefits of adding extra protein into the diet and wanted to create a product that would make it easily available to everyone.

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | PINTEREST | INSTAGRAM | YOUTUBE

The TUSHY is a modern bidet attachment that washes your rear end with a precise stream of fresh water after every bowel movement. For only $69, TUSHY easily attaches to any standard toilet in 10 minutes without plumbing or electricity and offers pressure control, a self-cleaning nozzle, and an angle adjuster. Stop the unsanitary and gross act of wiping with toilet paper and wash with TUSHY. The simple bidet will upgrade your toilet to a royal throne and leave you with that just-showered feeling every time you use the bathroom. Say goodbye to dingle berries and skid marks left behind by basic toilet paper. No matter how intense the crap, TUSHY can handle it. They also have a wonderful giveback program in which they’ve partnered with an organization called Samagra that provides clean latrine and bathrooms people affected by the Global Sanitation Crisis in the urban slums and rural India. For each TUSHY purchased, they donate to Samagra to provide a family of 7 access to clean community toilets. Giving back is what the holidays are for!

According to a recent survey, nearly one in five teen athletes reported having a concussion. While we know activity and sports have tremendous physical and mental benefits on kids and teens, repeated head injury during developing years can have long-term impact.

2nd Skull’s protective skull caps fit under helmets–or the headband can be worn alone–to improve safety and mitigate the impact of blows to the head during play. Its extra thin layer of XRD technology, an extreme energy absorbing material, is designed to mitigate blows to the head and improve safety during play. Extensive biomechanical testing of the 2nd Skull caps at independent labs have been conducted in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. — with results showing reduction in linear and rotational impact when worn with a helmet.

The cap retails for $59.99 and you can view where to buy here.

2nd Skull is a recent recipient of a $100,000 grant through the NFL Challenge, to conduct additional impact testing on the cap and research to optimize performance related to specific player positions!

 

 

 

“Fathers and Sons – Sports and Life” by Keith Guernsey, what a wonderful Christmas Stocking filler for a dad and a son! amzn.com/153338763X

sports

“Fathers & Sons – Sports and Life” is a story of an uncommon love and devotion between fathers and sons. It is a story of my recovery from two rounds of life-threatening brain surgeries to play on three championship softball teams in two states. It includes a chapter on the most controversial sports topic of our time; Deflategate. “Fathers…” is also a sequel to “Confessions of a Beantown Sports Junkie.”

For Him

Haynes Explains range, Boris Starling, £6.99 (www.haynes.co.uk)

Making for the ideal stocking filler or Secret Santa gift, Haynes has joined forces for a second time with international best-selling author, Boris Starling, to add eight new pocket-sized manuals to its multi-selling ‘Haynes Explains’ series, which launched last year. Making for the perfect gift, Boris Starling wittily spins his take on Haynes’ inimitable style based on a strip-down and rebuild of a particular ‘model’.

The eight new brilliantly observed titles cover a whole raft of important subjects, including a jovial but affectionate look at ‘The French’, ‘Germans’, ‘Americans’ and ‘The British’. Meanwhile for those looking to decipher the mechanics behind daily life, four additional titles include ‘Christmas’, ‘Pets,’ ‘Football’ and ‘The Home’. Adding to the hugely popular existing range of titles which take a highly amusing look at ‘Babies’, ‘Teenagers’, ‘Marriage’ and ‘Pensioners’, these eight new books take the total number to 12 in the series.

Retailing at £6.99, each manual is based on a strip-down and rebuild that readers familiar with Haynes manuals would expect to see, including exploded views, flow charts, fault diagnosis and the occasional wiring diagram.

Robot Wars: Build Your Own Robot Manual, £22.99 (www.haynes.com)

This manual provides a unique behind-the-scenes look at the show – the arena, and both house and competitors’ robots. It offers step-by-step extensively illustrated instructions for building three project robots, from a simple ‘self-navigating’ robot, to a fully controllable Robot Wars challenger. Essential reading for all Robot Wars fans.

This fully-illustrated manual makes a great companion for anyone looking to start a post-Christmas fitness surge, target a spring sportive, or even emulate the elite riders of the Tour de France!

Adopting Haynes’s famous step-by-step approach, the manual takes the reader through all the types of road cycling, from leisure and commuting to touring and sportives. It covers all the options when choosing and buying a bike, along with all the necessary accessories and clothing. It also provides comprehensive instructions on preparing the bike for a long distance ride, everyday maintenance and upgrading various components. The manual also looks at the physical and technical side of cycling. From providing advice on getting into shape and what to eat, to bike handling and cornering techniques, it is the ultimate resource for the improving cyclist.

Home Improvements & DIY

Up the style stakes this Christmas season with the gift of HAIG CLUB, the stunning Single Grain Scotch Whisky from the House of Haig, created in partnership with David Beckham. With its unique and striking square bottle design, HAIG CLUB brings a contemporary twist to Scotch and is a flawlessly stylish Christmas gift for both whisky lovers and newcomers to the Scotch scene.

Crafted using a unique process that combines grain whisky from three cask types, HAIG CLUB offers a fresh, clean flavour with sweet notes of butterscotch and toffee for a deliciously smooth taste. This versatile Scotch works wonderfully over ice, in long drinks, or cocktails – making for the perfect drinkable gift this festive season, whatever your loved one’s style.

HAIG CLUB CLUBMAN is the latest stylish addition to the House of Haig collection. With its vibrant and modern aesthetic, CLUBMAN inherits the same bold and progressive spirit as Haig Club, with the liquid encased in a distinctive elongated square bottle which creates a stand-out silhouette.

HAIG CLUB CLUBMAN has been matured exclusively in American Oak casks that have previously held bourbon, allowing the sweet, gentle Single Grain Scotch Whisky from Cameronbridge to interact with the vanilla, butterscotch and sweet toffee flavours found in the casks. The result is a wonderfully smooth and sweet Scotch which pairs beautifully with cola.

A charmingly chic miniature HAIG CLUB (5cl) is also available, making Haig Club the ultimate luxury stocking filler and party accessory this Christmas.

THE GREEN ROOM REVIEW IN PICTURES: ENGLAND v ARGENTINA

 www.corporatehospitality.com

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | LINKEDIN | GOOGLE+

With the Autumn Internationals back and in full swing, England kicked off the series with their match against Argentina. Of course, Hospitality Finder were back at the home of England Rugby ready to open the doors to The Green Room once again.

It wouldn’t be The Green Room without a Champagne and drinks reception, and that is exactly what Hospitality Finder’s guests were treated to upon arrival, before taking to their seats to enjoy the day’s entertainment.

A sumptuous four-course meal was served including:
– Cured English ham, tomato mousse, olive soil and heritage tomatoes
– Rack of English lamb, potato puree, roasted young leek, tender stem and cherry puree
– Blackberry vanilla torte, red fruit compote, vanilla cream

The highlight of The Green Room is certainly the panel of rugby legends in addition to official compere Mark Durden-Smith. First up was a Q&A with the legendary Rugby World Cup winning coach Sir Clive Woodward, who shared his dismay at Aston Merrygold leaving Strictly Come Dancing before addressing the subject at hand – Rugby!

Following this was the panel of Rugby experts David Flatman, Austin Healey and Hospitality Finder ambassadors Lawrence Dallaglio and Mike Tindall. But it is not just rugby legends that are seen in The Green Room, it is also a star-studded place to be with guest appearances at this game including Darren Gough, Andrew Ridgley and Simon Le Bon.

Once lunch had been served, guests made their way down to their official category A match ticket to enjoy the game. Eddie Jones’ men were on form and managed to replicate their success the last time these two Rugby giants met in the 2016 Autumns, England came away with a 21- 8 victory.

Back to The Green Room where the experience continued with a post-match Twickenham tea, that consisted of:
– Steak and ale pie
– Spinach, mushroom and ricotta pie
– Roasted beef, caramelised shallot, spinach and Roquefort roasted sandwich
– Bakewell tart

The Green Room panelists were back on stage to give their review of the match and to entertain the audience with more stories from their Rugby days. Following this was special guest and current England player Anthony Watson, fresh from the pitch to give his review of the game. Watson also picked two lucky winners from the prize draw, who won two VIP tickets to the Green Room experience at Cheltenham Festival and England v India at the Kia Oval Green Room.

The Green Room 2018 returns to Twickenham for the Six Nations. Hospitality Finder will also be taking it to the Cheltenham Festival with our Cheltenham ambassador Sir AP McCoy and to the Kia Oval for England v Australia and England v India with newly signed ambassadors Kevin Pieterson and Darren Gough.

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | INSTAGRAM | GOOGLE+ | YOUTUBE

OHMME, which is an eco-friendly athleisure wear brand incorporating Bluesign® fabrics and Green Defence technology to keep the fabrics smelling fresh. With new collections bi-annually OHMME is the anti-thesis to fast throw away fashion. Built conscious
and designed to last.

The Dharma pants are created to allow for restriction free movement, and are perfectly fitted so there will be no sweat patches during your training or yoga practice. This strong polyester jersey is resistant, elastic, and feels great to the touch. And because of the fabric’s low level of absorption, sweat simply evaporates. Fast drying and wrinkle resistant, this sweat wicking garment will keep its shape. Available in dark heather grey, light grey, blue and black, this item is a favourite for style and comfort.

The Denim pants are truly unique to OHMME with an urban look but sportwear fit. Leaving behind the 5-pocket style of jeans using an eco-friendly fabric with a denim look.Its side pockets are large enough for your phone and wallet. Practical, fast-drying, and wrinkle-resistant, these pants will not lose their shape!

The Namoustache pants are acroyoga streetwear, designed in collaboration with Daniel Scott who is an an acroyoga teacher. The 3/4 length covers more than regular shorts, these elegant yet playful pants come with an embroided back pocket perfect for your moustache wax strips, keys or any essential small items!

The Zhú boxers are not just another pair of underwear. Tight fitting, adapted for workouts and yoga, these brief’s horizontal fly is an original, more hygienic and aesthetic alternative to the traditional vertical opening.

Try it, you’ll never go back to the old style! We choose bamboo fibre because it is extremely soft and breathes well. Its moisture wicking and moisture absorption properties are even more efficient than those of regular cotton or microfibre. Because of its sustainable manufacturing, bamboo fibre is a better alternative to conventionally grown cotton. The bamboo keeps you cool, and by choosing this model you are mindful of the environment.
Bamboo also has a unique antimicrobial bio-agent found naturally in the fibre which makes your shorts antibacterial and odour resistant.

It takes less than sixty seconds. Now, you can enjoy music streaming from Spotify, Pandora, Google Play, Youtube Red, iTunes, or whatever else you’re using.

With a battery life of about eight hours, BluJax can go all day before you’ll actually need to charge it. When it does need to charge, you can use the included charger in any USB port. Not only is it great for listening to music in car, but it doubles as a way to stream music from you phone through any stereo system with an AUX input.

Key Features

  • Compatible with any standard 3.5mm AUX input (in your car) and any phone with Bluetooth
  • Wireless music streaming
  • Control your music’s playback wirelessly

Plaice Goujons with a California Walnut Crust

 

Fish fingers like you’ve never seen them before… With a crunchy walnut and panko crumb and a hint of Dijon, these goujons will go down a treat. Serve on a platter to share with a good dollop of tartar sauce.

You’ll need:

90g California walnuts, toasted

Small bunch of parsley

Zest of 1 lemon

40g panko bread crumbs

A pinch of salt and pepper

Half a tbsp water

300g plaice, skinned and cut into fingers

2 tbsp sunflower oil

Tartar sauce, to serve

  1. Dip the plaice fingers into the mayonnaise mix and then roll in the bread crumbs to coat.
