Too hot for your own backyard? Beat the heat with a refreshing dip in this inflatable oasis. Designed for up to four people, the 10-foot-wide Intex Easy Set Pool is not just any old inflatable, it's got a filter pump to keep the water clear (good thinking!) and it's a No. 1 bestseller on Amazon. But hurry! It's on sale now for over 63% off and we don't expect this deal to last.
The super simple set up is a definite plus, agrees this happy grandparent: "Instant pool. Literally inflate the top ring and fill with water. Was great for my 8–4 yr old grandkids and big enough for me to use a recliner float."
The Intex Easy Set is a true upgrade from your average blow-up pool, shoppers say. It's a "good size and durable" with puncture-resistant, three-ply material and a patented HydroAeration Technology that creates bubbles and keeps the water moving, fresh and clear.
Of the pump, a pleased shopper wrote, "It works wonderfully to keep the pool clean. We just open the pump and spray off the filter daily with our hose (we don’t plug the holes in the pool, just unplug the pump and be sure open the pump above the water line, so water doesn’t come out. Easy).
Intex recommends this 10-footer for up to four people, but this happy shopper disagrees: "It fits our family of five perfectly, We love it!"

Here are our favourite picks of the bunch. Travel is a state of mind, and Hermès is here to prove that with its watches. In the year 2022 when physical travel is still regarded as a thing of privilege, many brands revisit the theme, evoking feelings of nostalgia and wanderlust. And while Hermès is not the fi
Full disclosure, we’re not sure if this classifies as a drink story or fashion news. This bit of confusion comes courtesy of Heineken, which has announced the release of limited-edition sneakers called Heinekicks.

With Louis Vuitton approaching its 20th anniversary in watchmaking, we take a journey through time with Michel Navas and examine the iconic Tambour. It is historical irony that some of the watchmaking industry’s greatest achievements were born in Paris, not Geneva. In 17th century Paris, Place Dauphine was home to the workshops of Ferdinand Berthoud, Jean-Antoine Lépine, and a young Abraham Louis Breguet. Each man shaped watchmaking destiny in their own way. Echoing his respected French peers, L
