Advice Needed & A Winner.......

I need some advice from you lovely bloggers.
I am going to turn the big 30 in April, Eeeeeeek.........
And to celebrate this momentous occasion I have asked all my friends & family for Money or John Lewis vouchers so I can buy one of these.

Now I know I told you I have wanted a decent mixer for a really long time & although I know Kenwood is a really good brand, I just love the KitchenAid style soooo much I have to have one.
 My dilemma is which one is the best to get?
Artisan ???
What colour to choose?
My heart says get the RED one, cool, statement, fun 

 but my head says White,  safer, neutral, clean!!! 

I have decided to get it from JL as they come with a 5 year warranty and I don't want anything going wrong with such an expensive mixer.
So if you have an opinion on my dilemma, please leave a comment, it would be much appreciated.
Not long now and I will have left my 20's behind and be a real grown up....

Now on a lighter note I need to announce the winner of the Earth Lovers Shower Gel Giveaway.

I asked Gav to pick a number between 1 & 13 and he said 8 which was LissyLou's comment.
LissyLou - A Pear & LemonGrass will be on it's way to you this week.
Thanks to all who entered.

So tomorrow I have the day off and thank goodness the glass man is coming to glaze the new front door so it can be fitted as I can't stand getting locked out again and having to wait for Gav to come home!
Sitting on the door step with my front door key stuck in the lock in the cold is not my idea of fun!
Have a great week.

Oh what a dilema, it's the exact same one I had back in September.

My MIL has the candy apple red one which is gorgeous. I opted for the almondy cream one, which looks fab in my kitchen.

They are brilliant mixer, I am so pleased with it. You can also use it for mashing potatoes - they come out all smooth and fluffy.

I also got mine from John Lewis.

Enjoy choosing.

I say go for the Red. Have you ever seen how much the Old Red Typewriters go for as opposed to the neutral colours which everyone bought.

Be daring, stand out, go for the Red.

Oh gosh there's no question here, it's red!!! White is for people with pristine houses. It's boring and not the colour for a machine so clearly bought for it's looks as well as mixing cakes. You will smile when you see a red mixer, I just don't see that sort of happiness with a white one.

CONGRATULATIONS! To the winner lissy lou ;-D
What a lovely present for your BIG 30 ...hard choice...I am the wrong person to comment, I am a sucker for both WHITE & RED good job they don't do a RED & WHITE POLKA DOT I would be in even more dilemma lol!
Which ever you choose I think will look wonderful, it's such a traditional, stylish statement piece. It's going to look lovley in your Kitche ;-D

I go for colour every time! As long as it doesn't massively clash with your kitchen, it has to be red.

VintageVicki said...

I'd go for red - you want something that lovely to stand out :)

Well done to Lissylou :)

Country Girl said...

I'd choose red too - I was drooling over these in JL just last week!

Justine said...

Red, Red, Red! Our lives need colour Sophie,don't you think? Just imagine how cheery you'd be if you had a red mixer making cupcakes and how mediocre a white one would be in comparison!!

Florence and Mary said...

Oh no if you're getting a kitchen aid you can't get a white one!!!!!

LissyLou said...

Yay, thanks Sophie, and Gav!!!

I say go with your heart and choose red, its gorgeous!!

Pea Green Kitty said...

Ohh I know just waht you mean! I have had the same dilemma with the Kitchen Aid too. I have been wanting one for ages but still havent bought one becasue I simply cant decide on a colour.
I have a red and blue kitchen and cant decide between red, ice blue and white or cream!!!!
My heart says red but my head says white will not date as much!
.....sorry im no help am I!!!
