  • A nutty weekend ahead

    A 35 metre high glass swimming pool? This is NUTS!

    London Sky Pool

    London’s latest property development is two apartment blocks situated in Embassy Gardens. The two ten-story buildings will be joined by a glass swimming pool bridge which is suspended 35 metres high in the air. The pool will only be available to residents, so if you have £602,000 spare you can go for a dip!

    Would you take the plunge?

     

    August is being brought to a soggy end by gales, torrential downpours and storms. The UK are on alert for tropical storms this weekend.

    We are being warned that a mix of warm and cool air could produce small tornadoes across the country. Warm temperatures throughout the weekend will be met with mass rainfall creating a humid atmosphere and experts are saying that apart from a glimpse of sunshine over the August bank holiday weekend… summer could be over!

     

    We suggest you stay out of the downpour and get cosy on the couch with a mug of Peanut Hottie whilst watching the TV.

    (P.s ‘Calendar Girls’ is on BBC 2 at 22.10 on Saturday)

  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Unsurprisingly, we’re all about nuts here at Peanut Hottie, so we’re going to show you a few stories that we thought were too nutty to keep to ourselves.

    Did you see this?! 164 skydivers break the word record for the largest vertical formation in Illinois . Whilst creating the flower formation, the skydivers hit speeds of up to 240mph. It took this nutty  team 13 attempts to beat the last world record set by 138 skydivers in 2012.

    A chip shop created a 500-calorie fried milkshake… dubbed ‘chipshakes’. The concoction is made by setting milkshakes in an ice cube tray, coating them in batter, then frying them into a crispy battered ball, which oozes milkshake. You’re able to buy the chipshakes from a Lancashire chippy, Mister Eaters in Preston. Hmmm we think we’ll stick to Peanut Hottie shakes in the future thanks!

    Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed his longest ever tightrope walk at the Wisconsin State Fair. This nutty beast was suspended more than 10 storeys above the Milwaukee Mile Speedway crossing the tightrope spanning 480m long. Nik is no stranger to stunts like this, he previously walked across Niagara Falls in 2012 and the Grand Canyon in 2013. Way to go Nik!

  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Here at Peanut Hottie HQ we love a nutty story. This week, we’ve been on the look-out for some of the nuttiest things you guys have been up to this summer.

    Have you seen Damien ‘Flamien’ Walters? This stunt-nutter gets extra hot by putting on a ‘fire suit’, setting himself alight and going for a run through the forest! We think he could do with a nice Peanut Hottie milkshake to cool himself down…

    In another video that we witnessed (with out eyes shut very tightly), Damien is not on fire this time, but bungee jumping off the top of a crane! Now we know you’re probably thinking, ‘guys, that’s not that nutty!’ Well Damien is one step ahead of us and he’s not doing this all strapped up with harnesses, oh no. He’s just holding on to the end of the bungee cord with his hands, and letting go at the bottom! What a nutter! 

    We recommend that you do not try this at home. Instead, sit down with a glass / mug of Peanut Hottie, as our nutty goodness will give you the same thrilling feeling! #PeanutLove
