Perfect mornings start with a relaxing coffee in your favourite cup or mug enjoyed with a leisurely breakfast, maybe a read of the paper or whilst listening to your chosen radio station. Sadly not all mornings can be perfect. There are those mornings when you’re lucky that you manage to comb your hair or put on shoes before leaving the house. Those rushed ‘I’m going to be late’ mornings are not really the way most of us want to begin our days but sometimes they just happen.
Those mornings are the ones where we really need that coffee and breakfast but we rush out of the door unable to spare the time. That’s when Aroma To Go really comes into action. This fun mug has a snug fitting lid so you can take your morning coffee (or tea) with you and because it’s thermal it’ll keep your drink hotter for longer!
When you do have the time to have that leisurely coffee then nothing beats a lovely large Aroma Latte cup. New additions to the colour palette for 2016 is mint green and cool grey, both lovely relaxing colours that will ease you into your day.
The Autum/Winter catalogue dropped onto our doormat earlier this week. I know we haven’t had summer yet, but orders have to be placed so we’re often thinking about Christmas in July & August. As it is still officially July we don’t want to talk too much about the ‘C’ word but we do want to share these guys with you…
More news to follow until then have a purr-fect weekend!
Lets talk eggs! Who doesn’t love a perfectly scrambled egg on toast, a cooked to perfection poached egg perched on asparagus or the humble but you just can’t beat, dippy egg and toast soldiers. In an effort to achive this perfection Koziol have created a few tools to help us out!
Aloha is an egg cooker that you can lower into the pan, pop in your egg and wait 3 minutes (or however long it takes to make your preffered boiled egg) then simply lift out those eggs without fear of burning hands or dropping eggs.
And there’s a fun version for the kids, meet Buggy! Buggy, like Aloha can also be used in the pan to cook the eggs. There’s a handle with a hooked end that fits over the edge of the pan, then once your egg is cooked Buggy can be transported to the table and used as an egg cup. Practical and fun!
Finally there’s Giovanni. A stand alone egg slicer that can also be used to slice Mozzarella cheese. Pop your peeled boiled egg or ball of Mozzarella cheese into Giovann’s oversized open smiling mouth and then close to reveal a prefectly sliced egg or mozzarella for your salad or sandwiches.
So there you have it! Tools to acheive egg perfection time and time again.
Happy New Year everyone! After a hectic Christmas and New Year it’s taken us this past week to get back into our stride. It’s a busy, exciting time for us, all the Trade Shows begin this weekend and we get a chance to preview the new designs for 2015! Just after Christmas the Koziol summer selection catalogue landed on our doormat, full of zingy fruity summer colours, with three new colours to look out for coral, ginger yellow and taupe. The coral and taupe mixed together are very reminiscent of sugary sweets and the ginger yellow mixed with turquoise is a real feast for the eyes!
As we don’t have any new products available yet, we thought we could at least share some images of the colour pallete and a little photography of what’s we can look forward too!

September hails the start of a busy month for retailers and suppliers, it’s the month that many of the trade shows start. Designers and suppliers show their products including new collections for the buyers to snap up ready for Christmas. So it’s all hands on deck to set up the stands and then pack up again at the end, hopefully after a busy and successful show.
For us that means all those lovely Autumn/Winter products we gave you a sneaky peek of earlier in the year are now landing in store and available to buy!
With the last of bank holidays over with before Christmas, it’s time to start thinking Autumn/Winter stock. Difficult I know to think of Christmas festivities and snow when the sun is shining, but the way we look at it is, at least the sun is shining!
This year the colour palette for Koziol’s Autumn/Winter is full of rich, strong colours that break down into four trends. First up is Star Money, a collection that can only be described as stellar, white and black mix with taupe and luxurious copper, like the twinkling stars in the night sky.
Finally is Alice in Wonderland, this is a collection of bright, fiery colours that will be perfectly at home at the Mad Hatters Tea Party! Red and orange rub shoulders with fuschia pink and taupe.
So there you have it, a peek at what to expect, fun products in glorious winter colours coming soon!
This week is National Afternoon Tea week, who knew there was such a thing! I don’t think there is a person alive who would turn down afternoon tea, what’s not to love? Tea, cake, scones with jam & cream I could go for one right now!
Ever since Anna Russell, the Duchess of Bedford was credited with inventing afternoon tea to bridge the gap between breakfast and dinner, people have loved this very English tradition.
Of course now it’s really only enjoyed as a treat, we are after all in the habit of eating lunch these days. But once every so often, say for a celebration it’s a lovely indulgence.
Here’s our favourite Koziol afternoon tea accessories…
