Crumb As You Are: GBBO Is Back!

britishbakeoff/Instagram

The perfect series to watch while binge-eating Mr Kipling treats is finally back, the sugared-up show that makes the TV license fee worth paying. It’s everything that makes our nation great: innuendo, cake and doing things in marquees for no discernible reason – it’s The Great British Bake-Off! Take one steely-eyed man who can do wonderful things with his hands (we’re talking pastry), add the …

Wowcher goes Loco for Coconut Oil

Coconut oil on the wooden table

In a world where we’re bombarded with lotions and potions promising to plump our skin, treat our tresses and make us glow, it’s surprising how hard it is to find a product that actually works. Sometimes going back to basics is exactly what we need – after all, mother (Mother Nature that is!) knows best. So with that in mind, we’ve cleared our cluttered cupboards …

Indian Summer Sipping

Summer may still have us in its grip, bathing us in the kind of glorious sunshine that us Brits only ever dream of. For those of you who are already preparing for winter, how about we slowly put down the wine, turn up the thermostat for a night and remember the hazy days? Warm weather means a lot of things: all-day sunbathing sessions, cannonballing into …

Wowcher Reviews Little Shop of Horrors

Lead-image

This week sees the beginning of a nationwide tour of the comedy musical Little Shop of Horrors hit Wimbledon. The show first rose to fame in 1982 before being made into a cult musical movie in 1986.

When it comes to healthy eating, dealing with conflicting advice, expensive food and uninspired meal plans can take our well-intentioned attempts in a sharp downwards spiral, often meaning the few pounds we lose come out of our pocket rather than anywhere else. We’re told to cut carbs, banish beloved bread and part from pasta. Coming home from work to a sorry salad and stick of …

Wowcher Reviews Smooth You Town Spa

As kids, we all learned the rules of the road: stop, look and listen. For the blog this week, I went on a mission to Smooth You Town Spa to find out all about the rules of hair… cut, blow dry and condition! Going for the chop can be risky business and sitting for hours, making awkward small talk then grimacing as your hairdresser completely …

Wowchella: Wowcher’s Guide to Festival Fashion

Ky-and-Ken-Coachella

Summer is finally in sight, and as a nation of festival fanatics we’re all preparing for the weekend of our lives (well, this year) as we search our sheds and lofts for tents and sleeping bags, and hunt for that all-important showstopper outfit. Like our Coachella celebs, we’re looking for that perfect balance between fashionable and practical – a look that says “Oh, this old …

Previously on Game of Thrones…

A lot has happened in Game of Thrones since we very first saw Ned Stark behead that Night’s Watch deserter. In the fifty intervening hours we’ve seen families torn apart, king replace assassinated king and a white-haired dragon queen walk and walk and walk. And then walk some more. In preparation for the season six premiere this Sunday, we’ve put together a handy guide to …
