Hayman’s London Dry Gin is steeped in tradition, following a longstanding family recipe of classically balanced botanicals that are slowly distilled as part of a two-day process to impart the balanced, nuanced flavours you expect from a True English Gin. Boasting a bright, fresh flavour with a juniper backbone, subtle notes of exotic spice and crisp citrus, Hayman’s London Dry Gin is the perfect gin for making a True English G&T.

Premium Indian Tonic Water
1. Fill a highball with cubed ice.

For the True Taste: To achieve a bartender’s precision with the garnish, use a potato peeler to take a strip of lemon zest and trim with a sharp knife to create an even shape. Snap the zest’s natural oils over the top of your G&T to enhance the gin’s citrus aromas and flavours.

A gift for every type of dad this Father’s Day
Father’s Day 2018 isn’t too far away and it does fall in the middle of the month which is generally not a great time for bank balances… So we’re here to help you with gifts if you either a Type A planner or you’re a procrastinator who “will get to it sometime” which usually ends up being the last minute.
Whichever one you are, you need to give some thought to who your dad is and what his idea of fun or cool is. Is he a tech boffin, master chef or gaming geek?
So treat your father or father figure to something that quintessentially speaks to who they are.
Here are our ideas:
For the comic-obsessed dad
The last few months have blessed us with some excellent comic book movies (thanks, Marvel) which have been huge hits with moviegoers and critics alike. Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Black Panther all hit the big screen recently and it just so happens that two of the three – Infinity War and Black Panther – feature critical father-based storylines. If your dad is a fanboy who’s already watched the movies several times and whisper-speaks the dialogue with the characters, he’d probably appreciate some cool stuff.
There’s this super cool Deadpool mug, or this awesome 3D deco wall LED light which looks like Iron Man’s hand is smashing through your wall, or this mega cool Black Panther King T’Challa necklace that maybe or maybe doesn’t hold the super suit inside it (spoiler: it doesn’t).
Whether it’s MasterChef, Chopped or the Great British Bake-off, everyone has a favourite cooking show that’s had them going “hmmm, I should try that”. If your dad sees himself as a bit of a Jamie Oliver he needs the kitchen basics as well as a few cool gadgets to whip up that marvellous meal. He definitely needs a decent blender to whiz up smoothies and soups. Check out a few options from Teljoy. Or go all out and get him a super fancy gas stove (don’t worry, the price won’t kill your budget).
On the gadget side, there’s a fancy wine tools box set. If your dad is the type who talks about tannins and French oak barrels and tasting braised chalk or something in his cab sav, he’ll love this. It’s got a wine thermometer. Who knew you’d ever need a wine thermometer?!
There’s also these nifty silicone oven gloves that are perfect for the kitchen or braai.
The gaming and TV dad
He knows what UHD and LED means and isn’t referring to some juvenile joke when talking 55 inches.
He loves binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy (he needs to know if Mere will ever find true happiness OK), Game of Thrones, and rugby replays because he’s a well-rounded sort of guy. He needs a good TV screen. Nay, home theatre system!
Suss out what he’s looking for and check your options. A price comparison service like PriceCheck can do all the leg work for you.
Or if you don’t have R20 000 to drop on a whole new TV and sound system, try Teljoy’s rent-to-own option. It comes with a maintenance plan and you can use their EasyFix Repair service should your dad ever damage it.
If you think he’d fancy a bit of gaming, Teljoy also lets you rent-to-own an Xbox or PlayStation (or get them both!) and they throw in a few games. In celebration of this year’s FIFA World Cup, and to rekindle the joy of South Africa’s hosting, get your dad an EA Sports FIFA 2010 World Cup game.
The outdoors dad
Maybe your dad doesn’t want stuff. Maybe he wants a little nature and family time. We’re lucky to live in a country boasting some of the best natural scenery in the world. Pack a picnic basket and go for a vigorous walk in the mountains. For instance, if you’re down in the Western Cape, Cape Point boasts a few braai and picnic spots as does Sanparks numerous other outdoor spaces all across the country. If he’s a committed braai guy, he needs this braai LED light so he can get his cook on day or night. Perhaps your dad loves making memories and wants to experience fun stuff – then gift him an outdoor Airbnb Experience that will ensure that he has something to remember forever.
The dad who likes to be pampered
Modern day parenting is hard. You have to put up with the tweeting and YOLOs and surely that’s a chocolate ice cream emoji and that’s besides all the really hard stuff like hormones and broken teen hearts.
If he has to deal with this and much more, get him a relaxing spa treatment. African Pride is one of those offering a spa treatment that includes bottomless (!) sparkling wine, lunch and a full body massage.
Put a big smile on Dad’s face this year when you grab him something special from the BoroughBox Father’s Day gift range.
You’ll find everything from hampers of intoxicating craft beers, posh snacks, whiskies and gin. BoroughBox.com is jam-packed with the finest food and drink of hundreds of independent food and drink producers, from across the UK. There’s something to delight everyone — vegan snacks and healthy packs to fine wines and rare breed meat pies — and with new producers joining every day, the changing market provides never-ending food discovery fun. A regular must-shop for any serious foodie. Is Dad a foodie? Find specialist seasonings, spices, salts, oils and vinegars. We have spice gift sets, fine charcuteries meat gifts and of course chocolate Father’s Day gifts.
JUST EAT “PUT IT ON A PLATE” FOR THE NATION WITH THE STRANGEST FOOTBALL MEMORABILIA YET
Just Eat launches collectable 2018 Football Plates
Order through the food delivery app between 14th June and 15th July for a chance to receive a plate every day
7th June 2018: What do Putin, John Barnes and Gianfranco Zola all have in common? Well, from this week they will all feature in a new series of commemorative football plates from Just Eat.
To celebrate our quintessentially British love of questionable memorabilia – and mark a summer of sport – Just Eat is offering hungry football fans the chance to get their hands on a limited edition 2018 Football Plate.
The series of quirky commemorative crockery features unusual designs that pay homage to football greats and iconic sporting moments.
While each plate has been designed by hand it’s fair to say they only bear a loose resemblance to the scenes they depict.
The first in the series gives fans the chance to lick a legend’s face by featuring a somewhat simplistic drawing of legendary footballer John Barnes, who earned 70 international caps for England.
Next up is an Italian masterpiece designed by none other than the Italian magician Gianfranco Zola, which shows the nation’s favourite takeaway: pizza. With Italy’s football team set for a quiet few weeks (on the beach), Just Eat put the former Chelsea striker to work to create a tongue-in-cheek tribute to his nation’s staple dish. Echoing the thoughts of many Italians this summer, the plate is captioned with “What football?”
The series then follows by marking Maradona’s infamous 1986 Argentina V England ‘Hand of God’ goal.
As if that wasn’t bizarre enough, the last design in the collection is a reimagination of the popular meme of Russian president, Vladimir Putin riding a bear. Yes, you heard it right.
Speaking about the unforgettable memorabilia, England football icon John Barnes said: “I absolutely love the plate, it certainly made me laugh when I first saw it. I’ve had a few people say it looks a bit more like Viv Anderson but you can tell it’s definitely me. It’s so bad it’s good.”
“It’s weird to think that my face is going to be on the nation’s dinner tables, but if it helps people enjoy their match day takeaway then I’m all for it.”
Anyone who orders a takeaway through the Just Eat app between 14th June and 15th July will be in with a chance to be chosen at random to receive an official 2018 Football Plate. Hundreds of plates will be given away and four designs will be released for fans to collect.
“We fully recognise that our 2018 Football Plates may well be one of the strangest sporting memorabilia that fans have ever had the pleasure of collecting,“ said Graham Corfield, UK Managing Director of Just Eat.
“While we hope the plates will take pride of place in homes across the nation, if the striking design doesn’t make your starting line-up, they thankfully come in handy for enjoying your feast as you enjoy the game.”
The 2018 Football Plate collection in all its glory:
JOHN BARNES 2018 FOOTBALL PLATE
Ever wanted to lick a legend’s face? Now you can with this questionable watercolour portrait of footballing legend John Barnes.
Available 14th – 24th June
ZOLA 2018 FOOTBALL PLATE
Italy might be a little quiet this summer but Gianfranco Zola’s here with his skillful artwork to remind people of the country’s iconic staple.
Available 25th June – 3rd July
THE KNOCKOUT 2018 FOOTBALL PLATE
Contemplate one of the most controversial goals in footballing history while you’re eating your favourite chow mein, pizza or tikka massala.
Available 4th – 11th July
THE FINAL 2018 FOOTBALL PLATE
Forget putting it on a plate, it is all about Putin on a plate. Can you name a more bonkers plate design? Thought not.
Available 12th – 15th July
Just Eat is also launching a playful new augmented reality effect on Facebook. Those lucky enough to have won a John Barnes plate can use the effect to bring the football legend to life. When people hold their camera over the plate, Just Eat will use image recognition to identify John Barnes, letting the magic begin.
Give Dad the Gift of Sleep this Father’s Day
This year, give your dad more than a tie and a pair of socks for Father’s Day. The right mattress and sleep accessories are just the kind of unique gifts to tell him you care about him and his healthy sleep habits. Read on to learn more about giving your dad the gift of sleep.
Think about all the sleepless nights your father endured. Whether it was late night diaper changes, putting the finishing touches on a last minute science project, or anxiously waiting up on baby’s first prom night. This Father’s Day, give Pops something he hasn’t seen since you were just a twinkle in his eye – a good night’s rest.
For the Dad Who’s Stuck in a Suit All Day
There’s nothing more relaxing than taking off that tie at the end of the day. Now imagine trading the entire stiff suit for a pair of luxuriously cozy pajamas? In this soft J. Crew Cotton Poplin Pajama Set, your dad will maintain the swagger of a suit and tie while finding the coziness of a good night’s sleep.
For the Dad Who’s on His Feet All Day

The Cooling Foam Leg Pillow from the Sharper Image helps stabilizes the pelvis and aligns the back, hips and knees while the cooling technology ensures your night stays as cool as your favorite dad jokes.
For the Dad Who Needs a Total Reset
If the last mattress purchased in your house was when you moved out of your crib, it may be time to give back to dad. The truth is if you have the wrong sleep foundation, you may need more than accessories. Consider getting him a new mattress this Father’s Day. Check out this mattress buying guide as a great starting point.
Your dad has definitely appreciated years of macaroni noodle frames and plaid shirts, but this year consider giving him the gift of healthy sleep. He definitely deserves it.

Taking place on 23-24 June 2018 at Bicester Heritage, Oxfordshire, this spectacular event combines world-class cars and bikes, a dazzling array of vintage aircraft, an impressive collection of military machines and incredible live demonstrations both on the ground and in the air at the historic site.
Automobile lovers will delight at the spectacle from the finest that the classic car world has to offer. Rare and immensely valuable historic racing cars and motorcycles – some over 100 years old – will take to the demo track to show off in glorious tyre-squealing style, classic motor clubs will stage displays and the open-access paddock lets visitors get up close to these magnificent machines. There will also be an impressive collection of historic military vehicles on display, and even passenger rides in the live-action tank arena!
Moving from the ground to the skies, there will be fantastic air displays of historic aircraft, including daily air displays from the Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) Dakota, the Bremont Great War Display Team and the magnificent trio that is the BBMF Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster. The Bremont Great War Display will stage an exhilarating recreation of a WW1 ‘dogfight’, with aircraft such as Sopwith and Fokker Dr1 triplanes showing just how nimble these early warbirds were. Also taking to the skies will be top display pilot and former British Female Aerobatic Champion Lauren Wilson, who will give a thrilling demonstration of the agility of her bright red Pitts Special aerobatic biplane.
Away from the motoring and aviation action, treats in the vintage entertainment area include traditional and nostalgic fair rides from times gone by and live music, featuring the sounds of chart-topping classics from a bygone era, performed by hugely talented musicians. There will be a wide choice of food and drink available (including licensed bars) to keep visitors fed and watered during the action-packed show!

Homey learns new devices by installing Apps — just like a smartphone. With over 40,000 devices supported, your current devices will most likely already work with Homey. For example, link your TV to Homey, or your Sonos, Chromecast, Hue lights or anything else that’s connected to the internet. Make them work together, for example: when you wake up, have your lights turn on automatically and your Sonos play a low-volume tune while you make your morning coffee. Set up flows like this to make your home smart and personal.
Next to make your home more exciting and smart, Homey also lets you save energy. It’s often hard to get insight in what your devices are doing all day long. Homey logs these events, so you can view them afterwards and see what actually happened at home. Make adjustments to save energy (and money).
Homey was successfully launched on Kickstarter with massive support, and is now available online just in time for Father’s Day. Get it here: https://www.athom.com/

Winglights Are Here – Preventing Cycling Accidents With Innovative Bike Lights.
According to ROSPA 75% of the 19,000 bicycle accidents a year in the UK happen at junctions. So what is being done to support cyclists’ safety on the roads?
CYCL, a technology startup company that popped up on Kickstarter in 2015, boasts a multitude of high quality, innovative cycling accessories, has launched new safety innovation – WingLights – now featured in London Evening Standard, Road Safety GB and Road.CC.
So what are Winglights? CYCL developed high quality bicycle turn signals, quoted as “exceptional” by Peter Jones, during the CYCL team’s Dragons’ Den pitch.
Light and waterproof, these turn signals make bikes more visible to motorists, setting a new standard for cycling safety. Just like cars and motorbikes, cyclists may now choose their direction of movement whilst making it much more clear and visible to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. A bright amber light flashes as fast as the neighbouring cars indicators and perseveres through day or night commute. This innovative cycling gadget has already earned the attention of prominent academics in the field after being awarded first runner up at the Santander University Entrepreneurship Award.
All a rider needs to do is to snap the Winglights on the ends of your bike’s handlebars and switch on the lights with a simple tap.
CYCL WingLights come in three versions.
-WingLights Mag are the original high quality turn signals that magnetically attach to your handlebar ends. Easy to install and use, the turn signals flash bright amber and can be seen from all angles and at any time of the day. When removed, the units clip together to form a keyring on a carabiner for safekeeping. WingLights are shockproof made of a high quality light aluminium alloy with strong magnets to hold them in place, making them a tough hero of urban cycling, weighing just 125 grams once mounted.
-WingLights Fixed are a brand new, non-magnetic turn signals, built to the same high specification as the original WingLights. However, unlike WingLights Mag, WingLights Fixed are permanently attached to the mounting units and screw directly into your handlebar ends. Rather than clipping off to form a keyring, they stay on the bike until they are unscrewed.
– WingLights POP are the latest addition to the award-winning CYCL family of direction indicators for bicycles. Perfect for the casual rider, WingLights POP offer a slick waterproof design at a bargain price and stay firmly in place at the end of your handlebars thanks to CYCL’s patented mounting technology. Unlike the previous versions this model is made of plastic making it accessible to cyclists with lower budget.
All products come ready-to-use thanks to the 2x CR2032 batteries included.
CYCL is a London-based cycling safety company founded by Luca Amaduzzi and Agostino Stilli. Keen cyclists themselves, they designed and created WingLights from scratch to address pressing issues within cycling safety – in particular visibility at the junctions.
Passionate about improving cyclists’ safety on the roads, the founder, Luca, quotes: “We have created something with the idea to improve the quality and safety of the cycling experience and we are now aiming to expand this to the wider public by partnering with bike sharing schemes.”
The number of commuters has increased by 144% over the last decade, making cycle safety a key issue now more than ever.

The artwork is an oil painting on marble surface. The theme you see on the stone, is an olive branch – a symbol of Greece and artist’s favorite tree.. It s a tree that symbolizes the knowledge, the wisdom but also the victory, the rewarding and the confirmation for a bright future!
The painted part of the stone is secured with a special varnish. The bottom side is plasticized in order not to scratch the surface
The painter is Barbara Gerodimou, a Polish born Greek artist with a rich art history.
The work of Barbara Gerodimou invites the spectator to a moment of thought, to a review of his beliefs and his prejudices. Time in front of her painting just delays his rhythm. Her exhibition history includes solo shows as well as numerous group shows such as Salon Des Surindependants at Galeri Rose Croix A.M.O.R.C, XXV Salon Rencontres at the Mantes Jolies Museum, Salon d’Automne at Grand Palais in Paris (1992-1993) moreover the Bejing Biennale (2008, 2010, 2015).
Few years ago she decided to make these kind of little artwork on a marble stone, which was also the ancients’ favorite material. She visited the marble processing factories of Attica and chose the finest pieces from around Greece!
It is available on line https://www.etsy.com/listing/207963763/olive-branch-oil-painting-on-a-marble?ref=shop_home_feat_2

Also, continuously shot images can now be played back in group on display instead of individually making it more convenient to review.
The RX100 VI also has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32000 second) that reduces the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects, and can shoot completely silently in all modes, including continuous high speed shooting, when electronic shutter is engaged. A mechanical shutter mode is also available as well if required by the user.

VanMoof launches electric bike that doesn’t need a lock
• Dutch high-tech bike company VanMoof launches new Electrified S2 and X2 worldwide
• Alongside VanMoof’s trademark anti-theft technology, the new electric bikes come with wheel block that automatically immobilise the back wheel without an external lock
• Bikes are available for pre-order online from 7th June
London, 30th May 2018 – Today, bike-meets-tech company VanMoof launches a new range of e-bikes featuring the latest in theft defence technology. The Electrified S2 & X2 include rider recognition, a virtually invisible stealth lock and a multi-phased alarm to take their battle with bike thieves to the next level.
The bikes are equipped with an intelligent motor that is more powerful than previous models, pedal assist, quick-charge mode and can travel 93 miles – London to Brighton and back – in a single charge. Earlybird riders can reserve their new Electrified S2 or X2 for just £100 from 7th June, with deliveries commencing in September.
The Electrified S2 & X2 come with a virtually invisible “stealth lock” that stops the wheel from turning and activates the theft defence system, which kicks in when the bike is tampered with. When the owner is nearby, the bike automatically unlocks and disarms the defence system. Combined with an integrated alarm and a disabling mode that makes it impossible to ride, let alone sell, if stolen, this is a completely new way of thinking about bike security designed to free the rider of any worries.
• If a bike is stolen, the bike’s owner uses the app to alert VanMoof’s Bike Hunters, who spring into action to recover the stolen bike. This opt-in Peace of Mind service guarantees that if the Bike Hunters don’t track it down within two weeks, VanMoof will replace it.
Key features of the VanMoof Electrified range include:
• Intelligent motor – Smarter, more powerful pedal assist up to 20mph/h.
• Turbo boost – Press the button on the handlebar for on-demand acceleration, getting you up hills and away from crowds at the flash of a green traffic light.
• “Light matrix” display – Over 166 responsive LEDs bring the frame to life, displaying speed, battery level, and power-assist level.
• Better battery – Capacity and range increase by over 20% to 504Wh/93 miles respectively. Complete charging takes just four hours, with a ‘turbo charge setting’ of 50% in 80 minutes.
• Connected app – Remembers your parking spot, features adjustable sounds settings, theft defense settings and light control. Free online updates mean the bike gets smarter over time.
• Smart cartridge – The ‘brains’ of the bike are tucked into a removable and replaceable cylinder, removing the maintenance hassle often associated with buying a bike online.
• New frame design – VanMoof’s iconic front and rear lights have evolved to fit seamlessly into the re-engineered frame, which houses more tech and battery power in a sleek new body.
• Rider recognition – Secure Bluetooth technology allows the bike to respond when the owner is near, automatically unlocking the Stealth Lock and disarming the Theft Defense system.
• Stealth lock – A tiny integrated module (patented by VanMoof) that completely immobilises the bike and auto-activates the theft defense at the kick of a button.
• Ultimate theft defence – The bike responds with three phases of alarm sounds and flashing lights when tampered with, telling would-be thieves that it’s too ‘dangerous’ to steal.
• Tokyo-inspired X frame – Originally a Japan exclusive, the unisex X-frame is now available worldwide, suited to all riders between 5’1” (155 cm) and 6’6” (200cm).
“Bike theft is a serious barrier to widespread bike adoption in the UK – over 250,000 bikes have been stolen in in the past three years. VanMoof is committed to solve this problem at its root through continuous innovation. Why build bigger and tougher locks when you can make bikes pointless to steal in the first place?” said Taco Carlier, VanMoof co-founder. “By using smart technology, we’ve created a bike that can take perfect care of itself, leaving the rider free of worries”.
Riders can reserve the VanMoof Electrified S2 & X2 for just £100 from 2pm CET on June 7 on vanmoof.com. The first 2000 buyers will snap up a £1000 early bird discount on the list price of £3198. Deliveries begin in September.
Founded in 2009 by brothers Taco and Ties Carlier, VanMoof is an inventive bike-meets-tech company from in Amsterdam. With the mission of reimagining how a bicycle should work in the cities of tomorrow, VanMoof has time and again disrupted the bike industry by stripping out unnecessary parts, improving the essentials, and integrating smart technology.
VanMoof has received many accolades for its unique solutions, including the “Best Product Design” award from Fast Company’s 2015 Innovation by Design Awards program, and a prestigious Red Dot design award. VanMoof’s bikes are available at vanmoof.com and in their Amsterdam, Berlin, London, New York, San Francisco, Taipei and Tokyo locations.

Their June Gin Box features KWV Cruxland Gin, awarded Best South African London Dry Gin at World Gin Awards in London 2018.

When lightning struck, they would search for the X-shaped cracks in the earth where the lightning would reveal these ‘treasures’, or !N’abbas – the extremely rare Kalahari desert truffles that burst up from the ground when heavy rains and autumn moisture had caused them to swell. There’s a story I’m sure Dad will love!
The June Gin Box comes will a myriad of earthy accompaniments to enjoy your gin, like the gourmet treats of Winston & Julia Almond Roca and Gracious Bakers Beetroot Crackers. There’s Little Wolf Cape Dry Tonic, The Gin Box own dehydrated grapefruit garnish with star anise, and a Cruxland tot measurer to create the perfect serve of KWV Cruxland Gin.
