HtCC: Williams Sonoma

I’ve admitted before my love of random kitchen gadgets that you don’t really need, but I’ve got a special kind of love for Williams Somoma. I first found their site when Ellie mentioned that she wanted the cookie message cutters. I spent too long on the site staring at everything, then a few days later, I found out I was going to America. Cue excitement. I ended up getting Ellie and Sarah a set each, and didn’t get anything for me!

I was pretty excited a few weeks ago to see that certain items on the Williams Sonoma site were able to be sent internationally, including the cookie cutters, but then I saw this article in the Independent that the company was looking for stores in the UK, and squealed with happyness.

I’ve already started thinking what I want need.

The Brownie Bite Pan – well, I don’t need to explain this do I? Or the Waffled Pancake Pan. The Filled Pancake Turning Tools look like wonky chopsticks, pretty much the perfect example of useless things you never knew you needed. The Pancake Pen is annoyingly satisfying – it keeps the mess contained and makes it easy to make the pancakes. Mmmm pancakes.

I have no idea why you would buy the Chef’n Mini Pie Lifter but I suddenly need one in my life. Along with a Cupcake Corer. The Spider-Man Comic Book Cookie Cutters are so cute though, I’d love to see more in this range.

Mini Tiered Cakelet Pans are the only way I could justify eating a whole three tiered cake to myself, the infamous Message in a Cookie Cutters are seriously awesome, and a Heart Pocket Pie Mould just means you can carry pies in your pocket. Mmm.

(not a sponsored post, I would happily have all of these things in my house. Still not sure exactly what you do with the cupcake corer though.)

Betterware, better, yeah!

A few weeks into my extended stay at the Boys house (which sort of turned into me moving in, oops), a magazine dropped onto the doormat.

When I saw it was a Betterware catelogue, I may have squealed with glee. Who knew that to get quality crap delivered to your door for a low low price, you just needed to move to the suburbs?
I’ve mentioned before about my love of these sort of things, and have even blogged about the JML love over at Sarahs site, EssBeeVee. When the catelogue dropped through my door though, I knew I had to take some pictures of the amazing items available. (This was before I got my amazing scanner, otherwise you would have had beautiful versions of the products. Sigh. Next time.)

Stop looking like a massive slut in the office, and get these odd little bibs to attach to your bustenhalter! Er, no thanks. I’d rather just give everyone a good eyeful. Also, if the lady in the picture didn’t have the modesty panel, then she’s just a skank, that top is cut below the bra line!

Trying to cut down on the portions? Or are you a massive loner and have no friends? Buy this tiny frying pan and accept that you’ll be found half eaten by Alsatians. (Having said that, I just want one of these because its small and cute. Such a girl.)

The more you look through these catelogues though, the more you end up going “God, that is a bloody good idea. Why didn’t I think of that before?” Long handled spoons, to get the last bit out of the jar. Brilliant (although a tiny spatula would work even better and would be small and cute, therefore guarenteeing I would buy it)

Mini funnel. See above. (Although the suggested uses are crap. My uses for it would be to fill up the hipflasks. Yes, plural.)

Hide your keys to the house in a really fake looking rock that you’d probably put near the house. Yeah, not the best idea. (Hint to robbers: look for the plastic looking rock. To test if its real, throw it at a window! If its real, then you wont need the keys to get in.)

It looks like Cath Kidston threw up in this bathroom after a particlary dodgy curry. Ew.

So for some reason, I found myself recently in the Costa in Shepton Mallet reading a magazine that came free with The People. And one of their crap tips (man, I LOVE me a good crap tip) was if shoes were rubbing your toes, then wrap your toes in bubble wrap and it would be super comfy. This is the deluxe version of that tip obviously.

Betterware does have a website but…I don’t know. Its just one of those things to me that need the catalogue. Theres something so satisfying about catalogues that you just can’t get from viewing it on a computer, or reading a catalogue on an iPad or Kindle.
