Introducing the snackflap. Hey, don’t knocker it

Posted at 4:10 pm, November 27, 2014 in Fun London, News
knocker

Ever feel like ordering food for delivery is just too damned inconvenient? That having to put clothes on to answer the door is such an effort? You’re in luck. Online delivery company Just Eat has developed something called the ‘Nosh Knocker’. This catflap for curries is installed in your door to allow the driver to deposit your food. Hey presto: you can eat pizza in your pants. For now, it’s at the prototype stage and will only be mass produced if enough people visit the Just Eat website to register interest. Will it happen? It’s so gross that we’d like to think it won’t. While secretly hoping that it will, obviously.

Posted at 2:15 pm, November 27, 2014 in Fun London

1) Get a friend.
2) Both learn how to make the ‘ping-pong’ noise with your mouths.
3) Rack up 660,000 YouTube views.

That’s your party trick for 2015 sorted, then.

Free skincare products and advice in Soho tomorrow

Posted at 5:15 pm, November 26, 2014 in Shopping & Style
Indeed beauty product

Here’s another thing to add to Londoners’ long list of woes – apparently the big smoke is wrecking our skin, too. Oh great. It’s all thanks to the airborne pollution that we’re faced with every day, which encourages spots and wrinkles.

To help sort out our skincare problems, Indeed Labs is taking over Golden Square tomorrow with a massive Eden Project-esque dome (as you do). Inside, a crack team of make-up artists will be on hand to transform tired city complexions. You’ll also be able to pick up full-sized samples of the brand’s Nanoblur primer – an instant fix that nixes the appearance of lines and airbrushes over dodgy skin, which would usually set you back about 20 quid. Your face will thank you for it.

Nanoblurred Pop-up, Golden Square, W1F, Tube: Oxford Circus, Find out more at indeedlabs.com, Thu Nov 27. 11.30am-3pm.​
