Oliver’s Travels offer The Big Vampire Weekender

Posted on 28 October, 2014

It’s been all doom, gloom and gore over at Cow the past few weeks… But for all the right reasons, as luxury rental specialists Oliver’s Travels has launched the very first vampire vacation to thrill the 15,000 vampires of the UK.

So it’s out with the feather beds and spacious, airy living rooms and in with ghastly crypts decaying in the basement – with only one catch! You must prove you’re suitably vampire-like to qualify for booking… The ‘mirror and garlic-free’ holiday has been a real hit online, with the likes of Woman’s Own, The Daily Mail, The Mirror and Yahoo getting on-board… But there’s going to be a lot of work involved in preparing it according to Oliver Bell, co-Founder of Oliver’s Travels!

We’re taking our inspiration from the scariest vampires films and books to transform Fenton Tower into the place to stay this Halloween weekend. ‘We have planned for it to take us a number of days to transform this usually bright and airy property into a dark den of despair”.

We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed until awards night on November 11th.  


HOW TO HOUSEPLANT – The Joy of Plants Way

Posted on 22 September, 2014

We love the fact that one of the things we get to do working with www.thejoyofplants.co.uk is get inspired and inspire people in return!

Last week our trail of curiosity and creativity led us to an incredible loft apartment in NorthWest London, home of Isabelle Palmer – better known to her legion of fans as The Balcony Gardener – where we attended a “How to houseplant” workshop. The day covered everything from how-to create your own terrariums through to some of the newest techniques and trends..

Isabelle’s gorgeous flat was brimming with plants and incredible ideas – and it all proved how the humble houseplant can be a style focus in any room, with a little imagination. Flowers (edible ones, that is) made it into the magnificent spread provided by talented chef-come-culinary artist, Sorrel Ferguson… We even left with a gorgeous goody bag and a signed copy of her latest book. Bloomin’ bliss!

It was a busy old time last week at Cow preparing for the launch of Superdrug’s A/W 14 Press Show, showcasing all that’s new from Superdrug health. From pedicures, to flu jabs, the health room had something to offer for everyone, with over 50 happy journalists welcomed through the doors throughout the day.

Health masterclasses were held by US celebrity chef and brand ambassador for Leaderfoods, Sara la Fountain, who ran a smoothie making demonstration, while presenter and brand ambassador for LighterLife Fast, Denise Welch, also gave a talk about her experience with weight management.

In the build up to London Fashion Week, premium Belgium beer brand, Affligem, has delved into its rich heritage by collaborating with Savile Row tailor, Patrick Grant, to reinterpret the traditional attire worn by the knights who founded Affligem back in 1074.

The bespoke suit aims to combine the elegance and craft of Affligem, while encapsulating the historical background of its 11th century founding fathers into a suit fit for 21st century gentlemen.

It also appears to have gone down smoothly with the fashion press as well, with coverage achieved in Esquire, Dash, Menswear Style and Brash to name a few.
