I would do pretty much anything to be able to play house with a handsome young man. However, my desperation fails me haha, therefore I have to live at home with dearest Mum and Dad. But whilst living at home, I have been storing up a bunch of stuff for when I eventually flee the nest! Is 23 too old to still be living at home?!
Anyway, recently I was offered a product to review from Appliances Direct, and I decided to pick a kettle and toaster set that I would like in my make-believe kitchen. Our toaster actually broke recently, so I thought it was a good opportunity to get a new attractive one! If I left it to Mum, she would have picked a cheap nasty plasticy one, so I picked this stylish toaster and kettle set by Swan. Here’s some snazzy photos of me making myself some breakfast, Scotch pancakes and hot chocolate!
Kitchen appliances may not be the most exciting thing to buy, but I’m a bit sad in the fact that I like everything to be as pretty as possible. Boring black/white things don’t inspire me, and if I’m having to see and use something everyday, I want it to look nice. As far as kettles and toasters go, these are certainly the nicest I’ve seen. I really like the retro styling of this set, and the almond creamy colour with stainless steel makes them stand out from regular kitchen electricals. And when I have my own dreamy kitchen, they will both match wonderfully with my cream country cottage theme 😉 They both look really neat, which I think is kind of important seeing as they have to sit out on the kitchen counter and can’t be hidden away. I find some kitchen gadgets can be a bit of an eyesore, but these are certainly nice enough to sit out on the side.
Since our last toaster broke after only 13 months (which annoyed Mum as the warranty was for 12 months), the British Swan branded appliances come with a two year warranty. The quality of the set is really good, they’re nice and sturdy, and they do what it says on the tin. The set of two come in at just under £52 at Appliances Direct, which is a 50% reduction on the RRP.
