Before Simon Pegg delved into films and sold his soul to Hollywood – his next film sees him starring alongside Kirsten Dunst – he was responsible for one of the best British comedy series. It’s hard to believe, but Spaced graced our screens nearly a decade ago now, although it’s hard to find another comedy series that’s topped it since.
Starring and written by Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson, the pair play two strangers who pose as a couple in order to rent a flat, and focuses around them, their friends and their neighbours. It’s laden with pop culture references, but you don’t need to be a complete film or movie swot to get them. Each episode is also based on at least on film, including Star Wars and The Sixth Sense. Despite this surreal angle, the sitcom is surprisingly believable and true to life, featuring characters we’ve all come across at some point.
This Definitive Collectors’ Edition features both series of Spaced, as well as loads of extras. If you’ve never seen Spaced before don’t bother with buying just one season, you can pick up the whole lot for just over £15 and I guarantee you’ll want to watch it all!
Spaced – Definitive Collectors’ Edition is available as part of Amazon’s Autumn Deals for only £15.97.

Whilst we might finally be experiencing a taste of summer this week, it’s inevitably going to come to a soggy end this weekend, and the shorts will be packed away again for who knows how long.
As a result of the definite lack of hot weather this year, most of us stuck in lovely old Blighty will have been reaching for a jumper rather than a halter neck recently. But every cloud, no matter how grey, has a silver lining, and this year’s summer sales are some of the best we’ve had in years, full of top notch summer clothes that we just didn’t want to buy, now available with massive reductions.
If you’re jetting off for some summer sun, or just plain optimistic, get rifling because there are bargains to be had. Topshop in particular have huge reductions across all ranges, including Kate Moss and the vintage ranges available in the flagship store on Oxford Street. I recently spotted a Christopher Kane dress reduced from £120 to £20.

Fashion wise it’s a strange time of year. We might be only days away from May, but in the UK the weather swings unpredictably between cold, dark and wet winter conditions and bright, warm summer sunshine. So, how to dress when you can’t know if you’ll need an umbrella or sunglasses? Not to worry readers, as TopShop is here to help with a mid-season sale. This collection includes over 650 lines and ensures that you can nab a cosy woolly or a flimsy summer top depending on your needs.
So often it seems that stores bring out the naff items that have long clogged up the shop for seasons, but having had a serious snoop, we’re happy to say how impressed we are with the range available. Among the stock is this gem of a bargain – a gorgeous floral, pastel tea dress with frill detail that has been reduced from £45 to £20.
To nab your own sales snip, head on over to the online store or head for your nearest TopShop.

Here at The New Pink, we love a bargain. Nothing beats that feeling of grabbing something for a fraction of its original selling price – not even a bath full of chocolate or Brad Pitt proposing marriage (okay, maybe that last one). And for those interested in pocketing some pennies while kitting out their boudoirs, chain store The Pier has announced it is continuing its spring sale. For house-proud ladies, The Pier has become a brand known for its eclectic multi-cultural range, top-notch quality and steep prices. However, now with reductions up to 30% there are plenty of bargains to grab, with our favourite this wire round butterfly mirror.
Made in China, the mirror, a new addition to the store’s stock is 46 x 46cm. The delicate butterflies provide a feminine touch, ensuring that even something as everyday and functional as a mirror can be beautiful and elegant. The mirror was originally priced at £39, but has had its price slashed to only £19. To nab this and other Pier treats, head on over to the official site.

This season is all about showing off your zips and being part of the Zip Code!!
This latest trend is all about looking tough and hardware is the key. Get your hands on biker jackets with metal zip pockets and zip-up shapeless shifts. Apparently chunky metal and bright zips are the most effective, whether it be boots, jackets or even a hardwear clutch. The usually concealed zip needs to be on show so bold colours and black set it off well.
I’ve managed to find this fab Black Shearling Zip coat from Wallis. It’s a mock sheepskin effect with a funnel neck and zip fastening. Best of all it’s been reduced half price in the good old January sale so you could be zipping up for just £35.00. Buy online or in store.
