Review: The North Face Thermoball Hoodie Jacket

I’ve been testing out some brand new technology from The North Face over the last couple of weeks. This is the Thermoball Hoodie Jacket – a light weight insulated jacket designed to keep you toasty warm whatever you are up to. I won’t lie. When this jacket arrived and I took it out of the

Review: The North Face Durango Hoodie

The North Face Durango Hoodie is a this-season soft shell outerwear jacket that offers some warmth and protection from rain, ideal for those in-between days when it’s not cold enough to need a hugely insulated coat but when you do still want to get moving. I received this particular one from Snow+Rock to try out.

Review: The North Face Vanadium Jacket

If you saw my recent post on the Spires and Steeples challenge and the fact that I failed (go read it here), then you’ll already have had a preview of the latest product I’ve been testing for The North Face. This is the shot of me with Mark at the start of the walk donning

Review: Boursin Spreadable Light Garlic and Herbs

I discovered Boursin a short while ago after receiving some to review.

Land's End Snow Squall Parka

There is nothing like getting out and about in the fresh air in the winter time… a brisk walk on a frosty morning is the perfect way to get the blood pumping and an after-dinner walk is a great way to offset some of that over indulgence! But if you are gonna go out at

It's Started Snowing!

Don’t panic! Not in England yet!  But there is snow in Whistler, and even in Arinsal… the new snow sports season is nearly here. And of course that means that the new ski wear ranges are hitting the shops – there are some really fab designs about, and despite the fact that my ski stuff

Year in Photos (20 Mar 11)

I was sent to the supermarket this afternoon to buy a couple of potatoes for baking – the instruction was to get the biggest one I could for my other half. So I did… mine was a quarter of the size!  We had our baked potatoes with a tuna melt concoction including spring onion and

Year in Photos (14 Jan 2010)

Yesterday I asked Rob Fletcher via Formspring what should be the subject of today’s photo of the day. He answered “Your Lunch.
