Review: Odlo Revolution Warm Sports Underwear

This year we purposefully picked a ski resort that was going to be quite a bit warmer than our experiences of the last couple of years. We love Ruka but the thought of skiing in -29 or colder again didn’t make us smile too much, so we opted for Austria instead, where temperatures would be somewhere

The North Face Thermoball gets a Makeover

It is fair to say that the black Thermoball hooded jacket I received from The North Face just about a year ago has become my most worn coat in the cold weather. I love it – it fits well, is warm, looks great, and is useful as both outerwear and a layer. I thought I

Review: Damart Sport Thermal Top

Over the last couple of weeks we have definitely noticed the temperatures start to drop. Actually today is much milder, but earlier in the week especially it was icy on the ground and you could see each breath clearly defined as you exhaled. This product I have been testing is the Damart Thermolactyle Ladies Long

Review: Avalanche Ski Sock by Incredisocks

Heat Holders Slipper Socks

A little while ago I reviewed Heat Holders Socks here on Splodz Blogz. I loved how cosy and comfy they were and said that I enjoyed wearing them around the house as well as out and about, but later commented on twitter that they were a bit slippery on my wooden floors. So Heat Holders

Heat Holders

I’m sat here catching up on Masterchef with these blue socks on my feet. They are cosy and fluffy and definitely warm. Heat Holders sent me a pair of their 2.3 tog socks to try out. I’m not sure I’ve ever worn socks with a tog rating before, but I like the idea of a

Year in Photos (30 Mar 11)

I was playing about with Photo Booth, as you do, and ended up with this self-portrait that I thought I’d use for today’s Year in Photos pic. 30/03/11: Self-portrait using Photo Booth
