The best outdoor pizza ovens

ooni-pizza-oven-sr

There are pizza ovens, and there is Ooni. Founded in 2012, Ooni Pizza Ovens has been developing some of the best outdoor pizza ovens for home use on the market since its launch. Easy to use, portable, and delivering authentic Neapolitan pizza in just 60 seconds, an Ooni pizza oven is an absolute game-changer. Designed to give you that delicious wood-fired-inspired pizza, each oven heats up to a colossal 500°C/932°F in less than 20 minutes. It means you can cook world-class pizza in your garden in an incredible 60 seconds.

Why is high heat important? By cooking pizza at super-high temperatures in a short amount of time, the dough forms a nice crust on the outside while remaining soft and chewy on the inside. So, the hotter the oven, the better the pizza will be.

So if you are looking to make great restaurant-quality pizzas at home, Ooni portable gas and wood-fired outdoor pizza ovens tick all the boxes.

The best historic hotel in Chiang Mai

Old-world charm meets modern luxury at 137 Pillars House. It is a stunning all-suite boutique hotel in Chiang Mai with a rich colonial past; built around the original colonial teak homestead and its beautiful gardens. The home of the Borneo Trading Company, from 1889 to 1958, has been carefully restored to its original beauty, retaining the elegance and ambience of yesteryear. 137 Pillars House contains just 30 expansive suites — each evokes elegant nostalgia with high ceilings, fine furniture, four-poster beds, and large bathrooms. The suites feature large, vintage-tiled verandas with expansive daybeds, rattan rocking chairs and views of the tropical gardens.

The two exquisite restaurants and the elegant salon/parlour reference the property’s rich history and culture blended with a timeless refinement in its decor, furnishings and spirit. It is all about the finer things here and an eye for detail: the classic afternoon tea is served with gourmet tea blends and savoury and sweet treats. The cosy wood-panelled bar with its sophisticated atmosphere offers a thoughtfully curated menu that includes Old World classics, contemporary cocktails and champagne. The 25-metre pool is a gorgeous central feature of the hotel and is perfect for invigorating laps or simple relaxation. The gym and yoga studio invite guests to be active while sublime wellness awaits at the Thai-inspired Spa.

Offering an authentic escape, 137 Pillars House is one of the finest colonial-era hotels in Thailand for a historic stay in Chiang Mai.

Sauna blankets are definitely worth the hype

sauna-blanket-sr

Infrared sauna blankets are the best wellness discovery we have made in a long time. They are a compact and easy-to-use version of a classic infrared sauna. Unlike traditional saunas, which typically warm the air around you to warm your body, these saunas use light to warm your body directly.

An infrared sauna blanket delivers a lot of the same benefits as an infrared sauna session, with the added bonus of being able to indulge in all of the health benefits from the comfort of your own home. An infrared sauna is one of the best aids to rid the body of heavy metals and toxins through the body’s largest detoxification organ: the skin. Examples of other benefits may include anti-ageing for the skin, muscle relaxation, increasing blood circulation, improving skin health, pain relief, promoting a healthy immune system, reducing pain, reducing cellulites, and many more.

Supercharge your wellness and health journey at home with a Koanna sauna blanket that uses far-infrared light energy to heat your body gently. The temperature range on offer is 25°C to 80°C. You can select your preferred heat level and time (up to 60 minutes) using the hand-held controller. Koanna is a practical and cost-friendly sauna solution for home use – well made, super easy to use, and delivers superb results.

Luxury scalp & hair care

Studies have shown that a healthy balanced scalp is critical to healthy hair. A healthy scalp leads to less breakage and hair loss, new growth, and more luscious, shinier hair, not to mention plenty of good hair days. Treat your scalp well, and your hair will show the result — stronger, healthier-looking hair. You have about 100,000 hair follicles that grow hair and produce the oil that keeps the scalp moisturised and helps ward off infections. Keeping the follicles healthy is the best way to ensure optimal hair conditions.

MONPURE is the world’s first dedicated scalp and hair health brand. Effective and dermatologically tested, it is a luxury haircare brand that bridges the gap between skincare and haircare. The company’s multi-award-winning range provides results-driven, plant-based formulas that nourish the scalp and hair follicles to deliver essential benefits to achieve stronger, healthier hair and treat all manners of issues, including scalp irritation, hair loss and brittle, lack-lustre hair. MONPURE has consciously chosen only to use the best natural ingredients and potent actives, sustainably sourced from Europe. With holy grail skincare ingredients such as retinol and lactic acid featuring throughout the haircare range, the results are beyond impressive.

For naturally beautiful, healthier hair, MONPURE’s luxe, high-quality range is nothing less than cutting-edge scalp and hair care.
