Review – Chelsea FC Platinum Hospitality At Stamford Bridge

Taking my little man to see the Chelsea Vs West Ham match on Sunday 17th March is probably the highlight of his year. Getting to experience his first ever Chelsea FC match at Stamford Bridge on a Platinum VIP hospitality package has no doubt made that experience one on a whole other level.

20130407-162538.jpg

Having met all the players on the Tuesday before the match, during that of a training session at Cobham, Little man was excited to see how training and match preparation translated into match day performance. Admittedly, I was looking forward to witnessing this too, while also discovering how Chelsea catered for its fans on a platinum hospitality package.

20130407-162619.jpg

Well, we were not to be disappointed. We arrived at Stamford bridge to witness reasonably heavy queues at most of the gates. Luckily our tickets meant that we got to enter the stadium via the ‘East Stand Reception’ for the Executive Club, meaning no queuing and no impatient 12 year old boy moaning in my earhole (impatience and Asperger’s syndrome normally come as a package but thankfully not today).

Our pre match hospitality began at 14.20 PM which was roughly the time we arrived. We were greeted at the doors to the executive dinning area and shown to our fully dressed table by our personal waiter for the afternoon. At this point we were also given the official team sheet listing the players for that days game and that of a complementary match programme. Oh and how could I forget! At this point I was given a lovely glass of bubbly (much appreciated following a ride on the busy & very sweaty London Underground).

Our table was finely dressed for dinning with official boxed Chelsea gifts placed on each persons table setting. A lovely touch and one we didn’t expect.

The service provided was of an excellent standard and I can honestly say that there wasn’t a single point when I needed to call for a waiter! My glass never ran empty and Little man was in his element with free choice of the bar (with Alcohol of limits of course).

By 14.30 PM we were ready to order. The hospitality package comes complete with a 3 course meal, and it was one that was absolutely wonderful, both in presentation and taste. I had a beautiful smoked salmon starter with a main dish of beautifully cooked tender beef followed by what I confess to be my favourite part of the meal the ‘Dessert’

There was plenty of time to let our stomachs settle with the match kicking off at 16.00 PM. During this time we got to meet an old Chelsea legend, Ex Goal keeper ‘Peter Bontti’ who was kind enough to sign our match day programmes.

20130407-162710.jpg

The platinum experience is one that keeps on giving. What with seats directly outside the dinning area, I almost felt like I was popping out onto the balcony of a posh hotel.

Don’t think that the hospitality package removes you from the games atmosphere. We had some of the best seats stamford bridge has to offer. Directly in the middle of the Pitch’s half way mark, right above the players dug out. With seats like this we didn’t miss a thing! Which was great considering ‘Frank Lampard’ scored Chelsea’s first goal of the match and his 200th goal since joining the team.

The game itself was spectacular viewing and I’m sorry if I offend the West Ham fans of the world, but Chelsea ran rings around them with the game finishing with a 2-0 win for Chelsea. Though it should be noted that the fact they only scored the two goals was most annoying. I think I counted at least another 9 near misses.

20130407-162845.jpg

During half term we returned to the platinum dinning area for refreshments of beautiful cream scones and tea (with alcohol and juices still firmly on the menu).

With Chelsea’s win everybody was in high sprites and as to let the crowds outside settle we enjoyed the last part of the package – post match hospitality. This included some hot snacks and more free bar till around 6.45pm, an hour after the final whistle.

This was great as I didn’t really fancy joining the long queues for the tube. Little man gets really panicky using the underground when its too busy, plus I didn’t want him to be smack in the centre of any fan banter… (Some of the West Ham fans seemed full it during the game) and although this is mostly harmless, little man can get a bit upset hearing others shout out rude comments about a team he loves.

We enjoyed our last hour as VIPs before finally embarking on our journey back home to South London. We even caught a glimpse of John Terry with his two beautiful little girls on leaving Stamford Bridge, a great ending to a perfect day.

20130407-163144.jpg

I would highly recommend Stamford Bridge Platinum Hospitality Package, especially for special occasions, business events or for those who just purely enjoy to do things in a luxurious manner.

Its a bit different to what most are used to (including myself) but a great experience all the same.

With great, seats, food, drinks and importantly, great atmosphere … Stamford Bridge, Platinum Hospitality Package does well to impress!

If you fancy watching a Chelsea FC at home game in style, then checkout the official Chelsea FC website for hospitality packages and all other relevant information.

Disclaimer: This is not a paid review and I haven’t been asked to write this. I was lucky to win a pair of tickets to the Chelsea Vs West Ham Game on a VIP Platinum Hospitality Package with Lucozade Sport. I had such a great experience I felt it worth my time to share it with my readers and those thinking about opting for the same experience.

#Win Yourself A Necklace Made From Recycled Skateboards

Yes, that’s right I did just say that you could win yourselves a necklace made from recycled skateboards!

20130322-235436.jpg

The person behind this funky idea is Nat and she own’s this unique brand called Thrashion. Nat takes a skateboard deck that has been ridden, treasured then thrashed and turns it into a totally funky unique one of a kind piece of jewellery.

Nat has been making Jewellery and Homewares from thrashed skateboards since 2007 and from what I can gather she’s a real one of a kind, As it seems that there is no other brand like her’s across the whole of Europe!

Nat’s designs feature the original graphics on the board, no paint is added whatsoever, just a clear coat of varnish to preserve the piece.

Thrashion obtains their skateboard decks from various sources, such as pro skaters, friends, skateparks, shops and various skate companies. Boards are donated in their original state and Thrashion do all they can to keep waste to a minimum while constantly coming up with new ideas and designs along the way.

Thrashion have received Donations from Pro skaters such as the likes of ‘Matt Pritchard’ in the past. He loves the brand so much that the man himself was even spotted wearing on of the brands dog tags in a interview posted on youtube…

I love how every piece is a one of a kind! There’s no chance you’re gonna bump into a friend and spot your necklace around their neck (that is unless they borrowed it and have failed to return it).

For me, this is not only a great environmentally friendly idea, that produces cool quirky fashion pieces, but also an art form in itself. Its my opinion that Nat is a very talented artist.

20130322-235628.jpg

20130322-235644.jpg

I remember back in the 80’s and early 90’s when my little brother used to ride up and down our street on his skateboard. He actually had a few over the years that I can remember! These always displayed some really funky colourful design that never failed to make him look totally cool and impress all his friends. To think that those skate boards could now potentially be made into his big sisters pendent does make me smile. The fact I was never allowed to go near it let alone touch it, because I quote “I don’t understand Skateboards” admittedly makes me chuckle! Why? Because I may not “Understand Skateboards” but I do understand Jewellery!

I’ve actually never seen anything quite like Thrashion before. Its a great idea that takes upcycling to whole another level. I have to hold my hand up and say “Yes, I do rather like it!”

Thrashion has a site full off unique and interesting statement pieces of jewellery! I’m loving the little heart pendents with the skull graphics. These have to be my favourite! With no two pieces the same, and new skateboards being donated all the time, its a must to check back on their website from time to time for new and exciting pieces. Plus, if they don’t have what your looking for the option of a custom made piece is always an option.

20130322-235841.jpg

Orders come delivered packaged in cute little cupboard boxes, padded out with paper shreds. All packaging is again 100% recycled to keep the green element within the brand.

20130322-232013.jpg

The necklace I have to give away here on the blog today has a real funky pendent that is mostly made up of the colours greens, yellows and reds. This doughnut style pendent Has a beautiful shine and is totally smooth finish. Despite its size, it rather lightweight, making it really easy to wear. The pendent measures approximately 6 cms in diameter with a 3 cms opening,
and is supplied on a long length of military issue ball chain which can be cut to size if required.

20130323-000006.jpg

The prize is certain to make a huge fashion statement amongst friends, family and even work colleagues

20130322-231929.jpg

Compulsory Action….

#Win A Pair Of Blingbacks (Valentines Competition)

So… Who fancies winning a beautiful pair of sparkling Blingbacks?

20130214-092517.jpg

I won a pair of these pretty shoe accessories just before Christmas and then was surprised to receive a similar design as a Christmas present. Not wanting to be greedy… that and not wanting to let these pretty accessories go to waste, I’ve decided to offer my readers the chance to win a pair… After all it is Valentines day.

Blingbacks are pretty sparkly Jews that clip onto the backs of any shoe. You can transform a pair of standard heels into a sparkling pair of party heels just by accessorising them with a pair of blingy Blingbacks.

I do love these! Customise your shoes to bling up your outfit, then simply remove for a more subtle look if needed! (You know, the morning after and you haven’t made it home and now have to go straight to work scenario.) Seriously owning Blingbacks is like having earrings for your shoes.

So… I’m giving readers the opportunity to win the stunning set below.

Mini Bakers – Halloween Cupcakes

The kids love baking cakes especially the type that involve lots of decorating. Our Halloween cupcakes certainly did.

20121018-054357.jpg

I actually won a halloween edition packet of Renshaw my bakes modelling icing in a retweet competition last week, So, I had no excuse but to get baking with the kids.

We used the Renshaw My Bakes Icing to model a number of spooky cupcake toppers. The pack consists of black, white, orange and purple (though green would have been better than the purple, it was an excellent kit all the same)!

My very creative 9 year old daughter Alice-Sara made a fantastic pumpkin with a black and white snake wrapped around it…

20121018-055416.jpg

Fantastic, wouldn’t you agree?

Harley the toddler is the biggest baking fan ever and at 2 years old his already displaying some great skills in the kitchen…

20121018-055743.jpg

What We Used…

We started off with your everyday sponge mix ingredients and just added some spooky green food colouring…

60g caster sugar
60g brown sugar
125g self raising flour
2 eggs
220g butter
10g white chocolate chips
10g mike chocolate chips
5 splashes of green food colouring

Everything was mixed together with the chocolate chips and food colouring going in last.

20121018-062658.jpg

Once complete we spooned the mixture into some cake cases. Note, we doubled these up as to keep them strong. This was because we added an reasonable amount of mixture to each case so they would be big enough for us to cut through the middle.

20121018-062840.jpg

We let these bake in a Pre-heated over gas mark 5 for around 15-20 minutes.

Decoration…

The decorated of our spooky cupcakes were made up from…

Renshaw My Bakes Halloween Modelling Kit
Candy Worms
225g Icing Sugar
Green Food Colouring
Black Food Colouring

20121018-064111.jpg

20121018-121612.jpg

Harley did an awesome job at mixing all the icing where Alice did fantastic with her spooky toppers.

20121018-063625.jpg

Once the cakes were baked and cooled I sliced them in half covering both in green or black icing. I then sandwiched them together before adding our decorations and a sprinkle of icing sugar to finish.

20121018-121438.jpg

20121018-122128.jpg

We covered them and sat them in the fridge for a while.

20121018-122002.jpg

Personally I think they looked better without the sprinkled icing sugar, but this was the children’s project after all and what they say goes!

Checkout the inside… These were some chunky cupcakes that should only be eaten on a full moon (that is unless you are aiming to put your kids on a sugar high everyday).

20121018-122552.jpg

I’m linking this post to the appliance online competition “Cakes Win Prizes” and linky.

I’d also like to thank appliances online for the cake jar that I sadly smashed:( I’m sure it would have made some perfect cakes.

Octobers Top Online Creative Comps

I love a creative comp (see my room in a shoe box entry) that’s why I’ve decided to create this post to share with readers the best online skill-based competitions I’ve found so far for this October 2012.

1) Trunki Design Competition With
Thomas Cook:

20121003-093450.jpg

From Friday 28th September, wannabe-designers can put their colouring skills to the test using either Thomas Cook’s Trunki design toolkit on its Facebook page which works like Microsoft Paint – or on a paper Trunki template which people can pick up from any one of Thomas Cook’s 800 stores.

Alex Emberey, who works for the family holiday giant, Thomas Cook, said: ““Trunkis have proved themselves to be the travelling accessory for children over the past couple of years, and I don’t think I’m alone in wishing there was an adult version! As a family holiday company, we wanted to give parents and kids something to enjoy doing together between the summer holidays and half term which kept the holiday spirit alive. We hope parents will enlist the help of their little ones for a real masterclass in colouring in.”

The deadline for suitcase submissions is Friday 19th October, after which Trunki’s design gurus will pick a winning design in four different categories: Boys, Girls, Animals/Bugs and Cartoon Characters. Each of the winners will win a Trunki of their choice and secure a place in the final prize draw to win a fabulous summer 2013 family. Thomas Cook’s Facebook community will vote for a fifth finalist, who will also get one of the pull-along cases and be entered into the holiday prize draw.

The lucky winning designer and their family will be jetting off – Trunki in tow – to the Parque Cristabel Hotel in Playa Del Ingles, Gran Canaria next summer.

As much as I hate voting competition this one is mainly judged with 4 places in the final going to 4 entries chosen by Trunki and an additional entry going through to the final based on Facebook votes.

To put your family forward to enter this amazing competition, all you have to do is to tell us why you would be a great choice to win the 3 Vallées Easy Rider competition in a short video.

It could be that you are really sporty, but never thought you would be able to afford skiing. Or that you are a real whiz on social media and will tell thousands of friends about about it.

Whatever the reason all you need to do is post your entry to YouTube and share that video on our Facebook page.

Thankfully this is not a voting competition as they state “Our judging panel of mountain professionals will select the winning family”

This one seems worth an entry.
