First impressions can be deceiving. Take this stuffed animal available at Books & Books for example. It’s just an adorable penguin, right? Wrong. Zip and flip this cute little guy and in seconds, he transforms into a soft and comfy neck pillow, perfect for travel. Available as elephants and black bears, too. Now, if you could only zip and flip the snoring guy next to you on the plane and turn him into a footrest, travelling would be so much better.
When it comes to healthy drinks, green is definitely “in” and the Green Goddess smoothie at Petit Paris is no exception. The French bakery’s best-selling smoothie contains a healthful blend of banana, avocado, cucumber, spinach, mixed berries and coconut water, so it’s both nutritious and delicious. If drinking something green sounds less than appetising to you, just know you should never judge a smoothie, or a goddess, by its or her colour.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have a tattoo, but don’t want to permanently mark your body as a result of what could be a passing fancy? Temporary tattoos are a way to give body art a less permanent try. Available at Sand Angels, Nüd Ink Metallic Body Accents are a glitzy version of temporary tattoos. They’re perfect for the beach, boating, Batabano, music festivals like KAABOO, outdoor parties and weddings. The tattoos take 30 seconds to apply and last three to 10 days and if that’s too long, then rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball will take them off immediately. Just apply, shine and get Nüd!
Look ma, no oil!
Tender and moist on the inside, golden brown and crispy on the outside. Whether your talking about French fries, chicken wings or schnitzel, that’s how you want your recipes to turn out. Previously, the best way to attain those results was submerging your food in hot oil and frying. While there’s no denying that food prepared that way is delicious, oil is fat and something submerged in fat is going to be fatty. With the extra-large Caso Air Fryer, now available at Bon Vivant, you can have your fries and eat them, too, without the guilt of what all that fat is doing to your body. Use this easy-cleaning small appliance for great results in making steaks, burgers, fish and much more.
