chocolategirl1

Ah, Lent! The time of year you see people cry over bars of chocolate in the supermarket, wailing about how much they want a Wispa, caressing Crunchie packets and attempting to smell a Snickers through the plastic (OK, maybe not, but this is probably happening inside their heads as they resolutely walk past the chocolate aisle). Although Lent is traditionally religious – marking the 40 …

Wowcher-Reviews-royal-horse-guards

Fitness Fads: Totally Rad or Barking Mad?

Pyjama-rama!

thermal

Take our word for it – the cat’s pyjamas aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. They’re far too small, incredibly difficult to fit all our limbs into and boast a tuna-odour that makes us feel like we’re sleeping with the fishes. We’d rather leave that to the Sopranos, thanks. Thermalwear pyjamas on the other hand, well we’re big fans of that here at Wowcher. …
