Missed out on your Italian getaway this year? Well, Soul Bar is bringing Amalfi straight to you. For the month of October head down to the viaduct and join Soul Bar in a getaway as close to the Italian coast as possible this year.

Regal Salmon’s Maple range

The sun is starting to linger around and Regal Salmon thought it was time to add a little kick to your classic salmon bagel or your summer salads. Regal Salmon’s new flavour is slowly roasted over maple wood creating a subtle smokey flavour - YUM. My favourite way to eat the new maple salmon is by incorporating it into a rustic cheese platter, it adds beautiful colour and you get the added benefit of omega 3 fatty acids, essential minerals, vitamins and a plate packed full of flavour. Farmed sustainably in the Malborough sounds, Regal produces some of the most vibrant coloured, flavoured and textured salmon that's out there. You can enjoy this yourself from New World, Pak n Save and Countdown stores nationwide.

Revitanail’s Nail and Hand Cream

I love a good Manicure, but sometimes it's just not in the budget to be popping into the nail salon every couple of weeks! But, we still want beautiful nails right? Revitanail has the perfect solution so you can have those manicured nails at home. I have had a lot of Manicures in my time and I find that the key that makes all the difference is how you take care of your hands in between.
