Following the huge success of Divino’s Celebrazione line of gelato-filled fruit assortment boxes, Divino, maker of premium Italian desserts, is launching its new Indulgenza line of individually packaged gelato-filled fruits (super yum!)

So, who is this team of expert desert makers I hear you ask….!

Divino specializes in crafting handmade, all-natural, fat free, gluten free, and preservative free fruit gelato.  Fruit is hand-picked from Italy’s Amalfi coast, and the pulp is carved out.  The pulp is used to create the gelato, which is then placed back into the fruit skin and frozen.

Previously, Divino has sold the Celebrazione assortment box of award winning fruits: Vesuvian Apricot, Ciaculli Tangerine, Montella Chestnut, and Roman Kiwi.  This weekend, at the BBC Good Food Show at London Olympia, Divino will be launching Indulgenza, single fruits.  Alongside Vesuvian Apricot and Montella Chestnut, new available fruits are, Apulian Peach, Camarosa Strawberry, Sorrento Walnut, and Irpinia Fig.  The assortment box is perfect for sharing, so you can now treat yourself to any fruit of your choice with Indulgenza.  Screen Shot 2013-11-15 at 12.11.52

Last week the Snoochie Boochies team headed over to the Spirit of Summer exhibition at Olympia to find out what would be on offer to make you and your home fabulous and ready for Summer! 

We found some fantastic British designers covering all different areas from furniture to food and make up to accessories. Its well worth a visit when it comes around again, but first and foremost, we wanted to release a few posts over the coming weeks from some of the exhibitors we felt stood out at the show. 

First up is Nicole Phillips England.

Nicole Phillips England is a new British-­‐based textile design company that is just launching their first range of textiles for the home.

rhubarb-and-custard-tea-towelDesigned and created by artist, Nicole Phillips, the unique, beautiful and slightly quirky range of home furnishings and accessories have been manufactured here in the UK. The result is a distinctive collection that appeals to both town and country.

The range highlights Nicole’s hand-­‐painted watercolour designs printed on quality fabrics, all of which are offset with a trademark twist of humour – very British!

Taking inspiration from the natural world, Nicole’s artwork features quirky coastal characters, culinary delights and classic botanical details that are transferred onto carefully selected fabrics to create a product range that include tea towels, aprons, hob covers, oven gloves, napkins and cushions. The lovely fabric designs will also be available to buy by the metre.

nicole_phillips-7083All products are available in various colours and offers a refreshing new take on the country chic trend, and its something very original that will appeal to a lot of people, so certainly gets the thumbs up from us!

Products start from £12 for tea towels and all pieces are available to buy online here where you can also find more information about the company and the Nicole Phillips England blog.
