Am I being too cynical ?

I’m getting a little tired of being told how to shop everyday.  White Monday, Green Tuesday and now Orange Wednesday and Purple Thursday !  What has Black Friday started ? But if they had called it Black Pug day… I might just shop every day ! ( just think, if you had a cute black pug, you wouldn’t wait till someone told you to buy it a treat. ) I digress…


I’m meant to be helping you in the kitchen right ?


I love doing the research for you, so I’ve been checking all the bargains for you this past week.

I love that we have devoted all our time to sharing all that, and the cooking, and eating too.  I love sharing our whole new life with you ( yes Paul is working away on the technical side too).

The part we don’t love , and we’re finding the most difficult to do, is the selling part ! Yet it’s mean’t to sustain our simple living – that’s the point of digital publishing. We also don’t like hype and pressurised sales ourselves. We don’t like being steered into buying a particular product on a particular day. We didn’t want that for you either. So maybe that’s why I have been finding this week so difficult.


I’m going to be straight with you.

I didn’t think I’d actually find great bargains. I put myself on many email lists, and I went through the listings on Amazon. I was finding lots of price cuts,  but not things I wanted to buy. The products being pushed to the front were not appealing to me.

So I dug a little deeper.  I looked into the brands and products we know best, the things we like to use or recommend. 


I like finding the hidden gems…

I’ve found 6 in the UK so far, and I’ll update as I find more in the UK or US. I’m so pleased with what I found so far…I’m no longer cynical ! I hope you like the groundwork I’ve done. They’re at the bottom of the page.

Pug knows my favourite deal.

Best UK & US BRAUN deal


The MQ 9 series is the latest and best of the Braun hand-blenders. Check out which one is on offer !

Best UK Morphy Richards Deal

I want one of these, and I hadn’t realised how cheap they can be ! I’ve cooked with this in October, and have a great recipe to share with you. Just haven’t had a chance to write the post yet.

Best UK KitchenAid deal


In fact, it looks like there may be a discount across the whole range, but we know this machine – we have it ourselves. So we know what an incredible bargain price this is !

Best UK & European KENWOOD deal


Gee, I’ve just updated my in-depth review of the Kenwood HDP406 page last week. It was still our winner for best value mid-range hand blender. If you need one of these this price slash is amazing so now is really the time to get it !

Best UK Nespresso machine deal

This is already one of our top 3 favourites, so I’m chuffed also that it’s got an extra special discount for Black Friday on Amazon !

BEST UK Joseph Joseph essentials deal

I love this brand, for it’s design and functionality. If you just want to get a kitchen essential, or treat someone else to something ever so useful  ( I want one of these too ! ) then this is a brilliant deal.

Best DE ‘LONGHI deal

This bean-to-cup espresso machine is now at a cracking price.  Many suppliers are competing on Amazon so the price has driven right down  !!!
