#Supermum | Mother’s Day Twitter and Facebook Competition

Win a terrific afternoon tea for two at Coombe Abbey for you and your mum!

We are fast approaching that time of the year here in the UK when we show our appreciation to our mothers. As most of us will know, a great mother is there to look after you and embarrass you in equal portions. She will be the one fretting about how much you’re eating, nagging you about any apparent lack of partner, and generally making sure you’re trying to be the best that you can be. That’s why we want to celebrate these familial superheroes – our supermums.

Ohh Deer | Q&A with founder Jamie Mitchel

Last week I caught up with Jamie Mitchel, one of the co-founders of design collective Ohh Deer. Jamie was kind enough to do a quick Q&A with me for the blog to discuss Ohh Deer – as we here at IWOOT get ready for a new selection of their fantastic, super-cool products.

Supermum | Mother’s Day Gift Blogger Competition

Where would we be without our Mum. Besides bringing us into the world, mum can be relied on to: kiss that scrap better; taxi you to and from school; embarrass you in front of your first love; buy you those much needed trolley loads of food at university; give you the courage to apply for that dream job; take the kids of your hands in a moment of desperation; help you through tough times with you own family; and generally be the ultimate Supermum in every situation.

To celebrate our world of Supermums we have teamed up with Buyagift to give you the chance to win one of the most ultimate Mother’s day gift ideas, an irresistible Pamper treat for two!

How To Create The Perfect Office Space

If an Englishman’s home is his castle, then surely his office is his throne – apart from that other throne room. Regardless of whether you’re working from home or have a desk at work, making sure your office space is as ergonomic and enjoyable to be at should be a priority.

Having a good space to work usually leads to having a good space to think in, and from my experience having a cluttered desk usually leads to a cluttered experience and a cluttered mind. That being said, here are some things to answer your office problems.

Popcorn Maker Competition |IWOOT

Now who doesn’t love popcorn? Whether you are out at the pictures or you are enjoying a cosy night in front of the television at home, a movie night wouldn’t be complete without a big tub of delicious warm popcorn. We don’t know about you, but we absolutely adore having a bag of sweet and salty popcorn to snack on in the office over here at IWOOT. At first thought you might think you could only ever be a sweet or salty kind of person, but if you haven’t tried it already, we definitely recommend that you do! It’s unmissable.
