Anti-Valentine’s | Ideas for Singletons

With love starting to fill the air and couples making plans and hunting around for the perfect Valentine’s gift idea, it can be easy to feel left out when you have no one to share the day with. However, February the 14th needn’t be a sad day and should be embraced by everyone. With that in mind, we here at IWOOT have thought up some ideas for all those singletons out there on how to make the most of the day.

Drum roll please… new and exclusive to IWOOT, we bring you FOUL FASHION…

You know here at IWOOT towers we love to embrace anything out of the ordinary. We also know that as a fan you love quirky products, talking points and fun fads. So if you want to stand out from the crowd and make a bold statement we’ve got just the thing. It’s sure to sell like it’s going out of fashion!

Foul Fashion Blazer

We have seen some pretty weird and wonderful outfits in our time but we have always held a special place in our hearts for all shirts floral, outrageous and let’s face it, bold but beautiful. I’m sure you could imagine the array of colours, print and styles going on in the IWOOT office the day these bad boys got delivered. It looked like a rainbow had exploded right before our eyes and we couldn’t help but smile when we pulled on a foul and funky frock (OK, granted there are no frocks but we thought that bit of alliteration worked pretty well).

Foul Fashion Trousers

So, ladies and gentlemen drum roll please… new and exclusive to IWOOT, we bring you Foul Fashion. Foul Fashion shares our sentiment for randomness and originality. It’s handsome and it’s damn right #awesome.  Foul Fashion takes an ensemble of materials from the world’s best known fabric producers (Chanel, Gucci…the people who make your Auntie’s curtains) and chucks them into an enormous mixer. This, along with the all-important Foul Fashion formula creates a funky but foul garment for your gratification. No Foul garment is the same but every garment IS gloriously Foul.

We reckon the Foul Fashion range is perfect for birthdays, holidays, festivals, the golf course, fundraising events or stag weekends. You could always use the full range of foulness to avoid the annual awkward family get together and camouflage into your granny’s couch. Don’t be a fashion victim, if you’re brave enough it’s perfect for everyday wear. Flaunt your alpha characteristics and stick your middle finger up to social pressure and the high-street. Foul Fashion is also an awesome conversation initiator, let your attire do the talking (see what we did there?).

If you see anyone on the street wearing Foul Fashion, give them a wink and a wave and think of IWOOT, the fashion faux pas folks.

We always LOVE to hear feedback from you guys!  Let us know how foul you think this range is and leave a comment below. The Foul Fashion range comes in sizes Small to Extra Large. Pop over to the IWOOT website to find full size specification details.  http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/offers/foul-fashion.list

Food envy: Angry Birds cupcakes

Could someone please make the IWOOT team some of these please:

We can’t get enough of these fuming fowls whether it’s on the iPhone or the cuddly, all most real-life versions, but having seen these cupcakes (check out all the other attempts on Google: search ‘Angry Birds cupcakes’) we’re now partially obsessed with eating a cupcake with an Angry Bird on it.

IWOOT Party In The Park

Woop woop, it’s party o’clock at IWOOT Towers! Well, it was yesterday evening anyway. We packed up some of our favourite toys, a whole load of booze and food and made ourselves rather fat and drunk, all in the course of a few hours. Good times. Pics below…

Idyllic.

Aaah...

We really do work very hard.

IWOOT Camping Trip 2010

This time last year, the IWOOT Crowd decamped (well, not quite) to our MD’s Hertfordshire farm for some serious relaxation. Well, as much relaxation as a fully-stocked ice bucket and a couple of shotguns can provide (we’re not joking).

Of course, being IWOOT, we took oodles of toys and gadgets to keep us entertained while we ate, drank and were merry. Some of the pictures below show our favourite summer products in use and working beautifully. Peri Peri burgers, springbok and a whole host of delicious meats were enthusiastically stuffed into faces alongside a small avalanche of beers (though someone accidentally left the MyBreweryTap box in the office, curse them!), and a fine time was had by all.

The weather held out completely, bathing our little haven of a campsite in sunshine and, later, a dusky warmth that stayed all night. As you can see, we had a smashing time.

Croquet. Beer. Result.

Clay pigeon shooting with REAL shotguns. Yikes!

Prepping for the feast...

Happy Camper.

Hello Halloumi!

IWOOT Kitschmas Party 2009

Office Christmas Party season is upon us once again and you’re probably already looking forward to the prospect of Malcolm from accounts photocopying his arse before passing out under his desk. Obviously we’re no different at IWOOT Towers (though we’ve no idea who Malcolm is), and we celebrated the coming of Jesus/Santa/Friday with due mirth, frivolity and costumes. The theme, in case you can’t tell from these pictures, is Kitsch.

That jumper came from eBay, that shirt came from the office. Depressing, eh?

The Kitsch Factor finalists battle it out for a shot at Xmas No. 1...

Team Creative (featuring Carlton from the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air)

Anyone else a little scared of Customer Services?

Not really, CS are lovely, see?

You may remember what happened last time Rob got a microphone in his hands – for those of you who don’t, why not have a little look here. Everyone else can surely imagine what the audio equivalent of this picture would be. Wow.

I preferred his work with Another Level.

IWOOT FC In Nail-Biting Charity Belter

Last night, the cream of IWOOT’s athletic contingent (the least unhealthy, in other words) took on the formidable might of Thumbs Up, one of our lovely suppliers in a charity football match for Children In Need. It goes without saying that it was a sporting encounter comparable with the big leagues, and a jolly old time was had by all at the Norbury Powerleague Centre.

The most important thing to note is that we won, 11-10, after being 4-1 and 7-2 down at certain points, so it really was a valiant effort from our own little Carlos Valderramas.

 

Here’s a convenient list of match facts:

  • IWOOT’s team was made up of Ben (scored 4), Sergio, Simon, Neil (scored 3), Neil and Paul (also scored 3), with lady support from Melissa, Wanessa and Jo.
  • One of our goals was an own goal from Thumbs Up. Whoopsie!
  • Simon grazed his knee quite badly (see below).
  • Ben was awarded a shiny medal for being Man Of The Match.
  • Sergio moaned before, during and after the game, and also brought a dressing gown with him for the shower.
  • Post-match, everyone went for a slap-up Mexican meal courtesy of Thumbs Up – big thanks to them for being such great sports and giving us such a good game!
