Okay, so Holly and I are obsessed with the TOTALLY RANDOM news that TV chef Rachel Allen will be releasing her own range of “signature tiles” for Right Price Tiles, so much so that we’ve imagined just what it would be like if some of our other favourite Irish celebs had their very own household collaboraysh:
Shane Filan’s kitchen stools exclusive to Littlewoods
Former Westlife star Shane Filan spent a large amount of his boyband days sitting on and getting up off stools on stage, so it seems fitting that he would join forces with catalogue giant Littlewoods to release his very own range. The range will be extortionately priced, but value for money is guaranteed as these stools are multi-functional, doubling up as the perfect prop for that classic key change *stand up out of stool* moment. Shane has said that each stool is made from 109% Sligo bog peat and is the ideal gift for session moths who like to take a seat when they have a go on the karaoke machine at 6 a.m.
The Celia Collezioni at Shannonside Building Suppliers Ltd.
Fresh from her Ice Bucket Challenge, which took the internet by storm, top model agent Celia Holman Lee will be releasing her own range of limited edition bespoke buckets available exclusively at Shannonside Building Suppliers. After having to “just use a regular ‘aul bucket from the back shed” for her challenge, Celia felt that there was a niche in the market for a range of chic and sophisticated buckets and thus the Celia Collezioni was born. The collaboration will be launched in stores this summer and customers will be able to buy customised buckets to match any outfit with a further line of First Holy Communion buckets being released in the Fall.
Kathryn Thomas’ range of gas bitch fires in associaysh with Bord Gáis
She lights up your home every Sunday night as the hostess with the mostest on The Voice of Ireland, but now Kathryn Thomas wants to go one step further by literally lighting up every home around Ireland. Commenting on her new range of gas fires in associaysh with Bord Gáis, the TV presenter said with a knowing wink that “No frontier has been left unturned and I’ve been involved in the entire process from the initial design concept right through to the mechanical logistics of the 10-fire range.”
Twink and Linda X Guineys
Panto dames and all-round national treasures Twink and Linda Martin have teamed up with Irish homeware giant Guineys to create a capsule collection of essential household items inspired by their legendary friendship and iconic careers. The centrepiece of the Twink and Linda X Guineys line will be a remote-controlled red curtain, ensuring that everyone can “bring the panto into their own home.”
Lisa Murphy Cement™ available at Woodie’s DIY
“Oh, I loike totally swear by Lisa Murphy Cement™” replied Dublin Housewives star and owner of New Lisa Life beauty salon, Lisa Murphy when asked about her new cement range for Woodie’s, having built her salon with her own bare hands during the recesh. Proving that there are many strings to her bow, Lisa has said that she has always been interested in the construction industry and even posed for a photo-call in a builder’s hat during her modelling days.
Mary Burke’s range of extension leads in collaboraysh with Electric Ireland
Crystal Swing’s answer to Kris Jenner, Mary Burke knows the perils of a short lead all too well. As the matriarch of the all-singing, all-dancing Cork family trio, Mary has said that with the band’s extensive equipment, venues simply don’t have enough extension leads for their instruments. She remarked, “Derek has to be able to take the mic from the stage all the way down to the back of the function room without it loosening from the karaoke machine, so this collaboration seemed like a no-brainer. I’ve always got the electricity from Electric Ireland so it’s a perfect match.”
The Amanda Brunker Wine Rack @ Argos
Former party girl turned author Amanda Brunker is set to release a range of dazzling wine racks available exclusively at Argos. Amanda is also offering one lucky customer the chance to win a night out on the (Rachel Allen signature) tiles with her if they enter the competition at the cashdesk with Amanda arriving to your gaff by limo for prinks from the new wine rack before whisking you away for a night you’ll never forget. Both Holly and I have already pre-ordered seven racks each and will be doing our best to secure the prize, to be honest.
