Boost your fitness regime with the new Salter Body Analyser


Christmas parties, Christmas lunch, Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, mince pies and mulled wine, edible and drinkable Christmas presents… the list goes on and on and results in many of us bearing a closer resemblance to the traditionally rotund Old Saint Nick than we might like. And the result; come 12pm NYE we pledge that in the New Year we will be healthier, fitter or slimmer, but that is easier said than done.

Luckily Salter is at hand to aid on this journey with the convenient and innovative #9106 Glass Body Analyser Scale.

There is also an athlete mode and a ten user memory which will help all members of the household to understand what they are made of, as well as keeping track of weight or slimming goals whilst simultaneously giving a helpful health update.

As well as being easy to use, the Salter 9106 Body Analyser Scale is certainly easy on the eye; it’s contemporary stylish design and functional easy to read 40mm LCD display with illuminated icons makes the Salter 9106 Body Analyser Scale the perfect addition to any bathroom.

Win a case of summer rosé from Threshers


Every year needs a sexy signature cocktail to clutch at all the best parties – for this year’s Indian summer it’s the Reverse Martini. The core ingredient of this delectable tongue tantaliser, is the limited edition Couture rosé wine, exclusive to Threshers. Set to be the drink-on-ice tipple of choice for 2007.

To make the Reverse just pour some Stormhoek Couture over some ice. Add some raspberry vodka. Add some fresh raspberries or strawberries and lemon. Maybe add a sprig of mint. Voila! You now have the Reverse Martini, the perfect drink for summer.

As it is made specifically to be drunk over ice (in order not to dilute – like regular wine would), this new wine offers many new ways to drink rosé. If you like the sound of mixing up a few cocktails with an amazing rosé as the base, then try serving the finished article in a martini glass with a pink sugar frosting – it looks delicious as well as tasting great! For the less adventurous, try the simple but thirst-quenchingly delightful tumbler with big blocks of ice and a slice of lemon! Whether it’s served with pureed fruit, or a hint of mint, make sure that you don’t forget that ice.

Wine purists may balk at the idea of Rosé being drunk in any way other than a normal wine glass and without ice. But for the real world that most of us have to live in, their opinion is increasingly irrelevant. Whatever. This “mash-up” way of enjoying wine has long been the norm in South Africa; we simply thought it would be a good idea to export the idea to the rest of the planet.

To celebrate the launch of the new rosé, we have teamed up with Stormhoek Couture to offer you the perfect pink party set. All you have to do to grab this swag, is answer this simple question.
