Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week
You can’t turn on your television without seeing ads, but that isn’t a bad thing. If it weren’t for advertising, you might not know about some phenomenal new products. This week, we’re saluting those handy household helpers, clever beauty tricks and bits of kitchen wizardry you see on TV. You don’t have to order from the manufacturer and wait weeks for delivery; you can choose Lakeside favorite items and get the same quick, responsive and courteous service you’ve come to expect from us. Here are our as-seen-on-TV favorites for the week.
Nothing looks as sophisticated as a dramatic up-do for your hair, and with holiday party season almost here, it’s a great time to learn a few new styling tricks. One of our favorites is Hot Buns, a set of cushion-soft bun forms that let you create flawless swept styles with ease. If you can make a ponytail, you can create dazzling new styles with Hot Buns. Each set comes with a pair of bun forms, one large and one small, for bold formal designs and casual everyday looks. Available for dark or light hair, the Hot Buns forms are invisible under your natural hair and need no pins to secure them in place. Experiment with adding braids and ribbons to your bun for interesting new twists on a classic style.
The hottest trend in coffee has been the pre-measured, pre-loaded modular K-cup for brewing single cups. While the machines that use single-serving pods are convenient, they’re limited in selection and create additional household waste. With Cafe Cup, you choose your favorite coffee and place it in the reusable container, then make your coffee as usual. Broaden your coffee horizons and enjoy freshly ground Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee one morning and New Orleans-style cafe au lait with chicory the next when you pick your own coffees for your Cafe Cup. Each set includes four Cafe Cup units to let you take them to the office or on vacation. Although they work great for coffee, they’re also ideal for brewing great tea. Skip the costly disposable packs and reach for a Cafe Cup instead. You’ll save money while enjoying a fuller range of coffee options.
While you’re in the kitchen making coffee, why not assemble a quick, healthful breakfast? With OrGREENiC green ceramic cookware, you don’t need to load your omelet pan with oil to keep cheese, eggs, vegetables or anything else you cook from sticking. The low-friction ceramic coating on OrGREENiC cookware releases food easily and prevents sticking and burning. Because you only add oils or butter for flavor, you use less per serving and cook lighter meals that fit with a healthy lifestyle. These pans are eco-friendly and have a durable ceramic lining that won’t peel or scrape off the way some non-stick coatings can. We also love the look of the attractive bright green; they’re pretty enough to keep on display. You’ve seen the ads, and now you can discover for yourself why these as-seen-on-TV products get so much buzz. Like everything at Lakeside, these tried and tested are just a few of our favorite items.
