Slanket – (Blanket With Sleeves)

slanket1Well I already know what I’m going to put on my Christmas list this year.  In fact I’ve already had a request to purchase one for the other half.  I came across this while looking on Amazon and it’s called a Slanket.

What is it?

It’s a blanket with sleeves for curling up on the settee on those cold winter nights or even cold summer nights.

The Slanket is basically a gigantic fleece blanket with sleeves. Put it on and curl up inside its cuddly massiveness and be snuggled by its sheer fleeciness. Then simply pop your favourite DVD on, open a big bag of Maltesers and settle down in comfort. Soft to the touch, lightweight and warm, it’s got large, loose sleeves so you don’t actually feel you’re wearing it.

Apparently even teenagers think it’s cool – wow, that’s saying something.

A Customer who bought this on Amazon said:

“I would recommend one of these for everyone they are so comfortable, warm and cosy, with the benifits of a blanket but because of the sleeves your not as restricted as you are with a blanket. With the slanket if the phone rings or you want to make a cuppa then you can keep it on and your still cosy where as if it was a blanket you would have to leave it on the chair and then wrap yourself up again before settling down to what ever you were doing.”

The slanket is the best thing I have come across.  My daughters have these also and they wouldn’t be without them because as they say dressing gowns are not for teenagers but the slanket is “cool and Trendy”

Who Do You Dress Like?

bootsAre you a dedicated follower of fashion or do you throw on the first thing you can find that smells ok without too many creases in it? Do you pore over magazines researching where to buy the latest fashion must have at the lowest price or are you too busy checking out the latest bargains at Primark?

And what about the accessories too? It’s astonishing when you flick through a magazine and see celebrities with the biggest (and often ugliest) bags adorning their arms just because it has a ‘label’ on it. What some of these people spend on a handbag could be spent on a small car these days and is it worth it just to be able to say you own it? I suppose if you have a few thousand spare change then maybe it is.

Quite often the high street has the nearest thing to the high fashion garments that seduce you from the runway so you don’t have to spend your life savings just to look good, but how much is reasonable?

With London Fashion Week approaching in September will you be watching closely to see what you should be wearing this winter or will you just get out your old pac a mac and wellies from last year?
