Check out the latest collection of handmade Italian leather accessories in deep luxurious shades of Burgundy and Black Toscano.

FEIT’s Hand Moulded Florentine wallets, iPad and iPad mini cases, and Italian vegetable leather belts are available for pre order for men and women.

All items are made out of one piece sturdy Italian vegetable leather.

Although these items may look nondescript to the naked eye, their luxurious construction ensures they are functional and will last for years to come. FEIT’s small leather goods are handcrafted using an ancient Florentine moulding technique, used by only a handful of artisans living today. This technique has been passed down in their family run atelier for three generations.

The vegetable leather belt is also made using only one piece of vegetable leather with only four stitched, applied by hand.

10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS – 9. BeoSound 8 by Bang & Olufsen

December 23rd, 2011

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a good boy this year and this is what I want for Christmas. Read below.

Love Adrian”

One gift that I’m hoping to get under the Christmas tree this year is the BeoSound 8 by Bang & Olufsen.

Renowned for breathtaking sound quality and iconic styling, Bang & Olufsen have once again designed a standout electrical piece of art for your home, perfect for the bedroom, kitchen, retreat or dining room. There really isn’t a place you can’t put this piece.

Where ever you want sound, your BeoSound 8 can go. All you need is a power outlet and an iPod, iPhone or iPad which sits securely in the adjustable holder. You’re then ready to go, so be prepared for the awesome sound that is about to grace your ears.

You can also download an app version of the sleek and stylish BeoPlayer for your docked iPadiPhone, or iPod. You can also adjust sound levels and skip tracks quickly and conveniently on BeoSound 8 itself. Music on a docked or USB linked device can be controlled via the dedicated round remote control.

The conical shape of the speakers is designed this way to create an unobtrusive impression, as well as eliminating standing waves, by avoiding parallel surfaces.

BeoSound 8 comes in either black or white with aluminium details and matching power cord. When you feel the need to add a splash of colour to the room, the list of options includes six fabric speaker covers in yellow, orange, red, silver, black and white.

Check out the video below for a little tour of the BeoSound 8.

Available at Bang & Olufsen stores for approx $1,500. Visit online for locations: www.bang-olufsen.com

The book.

Ian Thorpe – Cook For Your Life

Ian Thorpe is an incredible Australian. He has achieved more then most people on the planet, but still maintains to be a real person underneath that powerful physique. A new addition to his impressive portfolio is the cook book, Cook For Your Life.

I’ve bought this book for my mother (because she doesn’t have an iPhone!) and flicking through the book I have found a heap of recipes I’ve book marked for both mum and me to make. This book is incredible and the photography and food styling is so beautiful and real.

Ian has put together a selection of recipes which require the best and freshest ingredients, which ultimately means you and your family benefit. The meals are nutritionally structured, combining a range of vegetable, proteins and legumes. Reading through each recipe, you will notice there is a similar structure, this is the key to his own health.

As soon as I give the book to my mum on Christmas day (and then steal it back for me to finish reading!), I will put up some posts of the recipes and photos. I can’t wait to cook the way Ian Thorpe cooks in his own kitchen, the way that athletes eat and the way I should eat.

As I write this post, I have had 2 chocolate muffins. Oh dear!

The book is available online and at all good book stores for $39.95.
