We group tested Aldi SpecialBuys dupes for the perfect summer garden

Aldi SpecialBuys have become essential for UK shoppers when picking out the most perfect items for the impending summer months.

Now, we spent last summer and new products for this year, reviewing some Spring/Sumer items from across numerous retailers, but sometimes it seems we can get a better bargain at Aldi for similar items.

For instance, egg chairs were the must have piece of spring garden furniture last year and we managed to get our hands on two (one single and one double) but you can absolutely buy them at a bargain price at Aldi.

Here we have tried & tested log burners, BBQ’s, egg chairs and much more.

Kiev mall explosion: Blast partially destroys Kyiv shopping mall, killing at least 8, officials say

The missile that struck the Retroville shopping complex late Sunday night killed at least eight people, officials here said, the latest violent attack on the capital in the past week that have left residents fearing what might come next. The devastation at the mall on Monday was some of the worst seen in Kyiv since the war began, and concern is mounting that Russia’s frustration over its failure to seize key territory could prompt its forces to escalate its attacks.

Civilians milled about outside the next morning to survey the damage, well aware that the unpredictable nature of the assault meant those who died here just hours before could just as easily have been them.

“The whole city is dangerous,” said Vitaliya Dubovetska, who lives on the 16th floor of an apartment building nearby and saw the strike from her window. “Any place could be safe

As glamorous as the fashion trends of the 1950s were, maxi hemlines and closed-toe kitten heels prove that dressing conservatively was still the goal. However, by the time the 1960s rolled around, expressing yourself through exciting, eye-catching, and, yes, skin-baring clothing became all the rage: skirts got shorter and boots got taller, neck scarves became headscarves, and meticulously matching colorways were challenged by animal prints, vibrant metallics, and neons. ’60s fashion gave women an opportunity to play with their looks and establish a sense of identity — so it should come as no surprise that this groovy era of experimentation is seeing a renaissance in 2022.
