Olivetti Valentine S typewriter

I am indebted to Daniel for giving me the heads up on this white Olivetti Valentine S typewriter, designed by Ettore Sotsass in 1969 and on sale from City Furniture.

Uniqlo UJ Denim

Uniqlo UJ Denim

I am loving the keen pricing on the UJ Denim range from UNIQLO. Their prices are always pretty good but with jeans going from £14.99 to £24.99 that’s darn good value.

If you are a guy, go here.

If you are a lady, go here.

Nice work on the ad campaign too, by MP Creative.
