Don't Count On It Wooden Puzzle

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Don't Count On It Wooden PuzzleDon’t you hate those people who are virtually impossible to buy chrimbo presents for? Sticking money in an envelope after spending days out looking for the perfect gift for them will make them think you didn’t bother. Over on I Want One Of Those, they’ve thought about this problem and come up with an imaginative alternative to putting cash in a card.

The ‘Don’t Count On It’ wooden puzzle is a great way to tease the person who made Christmas shopping more difficult this year. You can store money and gift vouchers etc. inside and watch smugly as they attempt to open it. That will teach them!

Cute Gold Jacket

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Topshop Gold JacketI don’t know about all of you, but I’m loving Topshop’s new website, it’s so much easier to use – the last one made my eyes go funny! They’ve got some fab clothes on there at the moment too – this little gold jacket is adorable for winter. The colour, shape and bow tie fastening all work really well together.

It’s pretty reasonable at £45 – with a pair of jeans or a knee length skirt, this jacket will make you glow.

Monday, November 27th, 2006

Orion 50Just imagine the excitement at Christmas when your family sits down to a nice afternoon in front of the tele and they are presented with a 50 inch screen to glance at. Not only will this mean the whole family will be able to see the screen wherever they are in the room but it will make the experience of your favourite Santa Claus film that whole lot better. No need to go to the cinema, get your surround sound in place and enjoy the experience with friends in your own front room.

This plasma TV is currently on sale at LX Direct for £1698.99 and they promise delivery within the week. Check out their website for more information.

Oversize Bags – Bigger is Better

Friday, November 24th, 2006

This season bigger is definitely better when it comes to your handbag. Gather your clutch bags and anything too small to fit your OK magazine and throw them to the back of the wardrobe. Beyonce shows how it should be done with this tan coloured oversize bag and plain white outfit. All the celebs are following the trend and dumping their miniatures.

Not only do these bags look super stylish, they are convenient too; you can carry your whole life around in your bag and not have to prioritise the items you can take out with you – take them all. Check out Glam.com for pictures of celebs and their oversize bags.

Cheeky Chimp Bath Fizzers

Friday, November 24th, 2006

Cherry Bath FizzersI saw these and just thought they were really cute for stocking fillers this year. The cherry-fragranced bath fizzers have shea butter inside to make your skin smooth and silky for Santa.

They come in a cute heart shaped box – just make sure they’re not mistaken as chocolates as that’s what they look like to me! Available for £7 from ASOS.

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Crystal ShoesI found these shoes that can only be described as heavenly on the Well Heeled Society website and just had to share them with you. Are they or are they not the prettiest little things you’ve ever seen? Costing a whopping $1079.00 you will have had to be a very good girl this year for Santa to bring you a pair. They are Loriblu Swarovski Crystal Cut-out Black Satin Evening Sandals, I will let you know if Santa brings me some :).

Shoes, Glorious Shoes …

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Shoe WheelWhen I saw this I knew I wanted it – just because it’s so different to the traditional shoe storage systems. Yes I have a shoe rack in my wardrobe, but compared to this it now looks extremely dull. Plus, this Shoe Wheel can hold up to 30 pairs of shoes and be wheeled into your wardrobe on its side, which will save heaps of room.

The pockets are adjustable to fit a variety of shoes – which are held snugly in place with elastic bands. The best thing about this is rotating it to make a selection – I love it! The Shoe Wheel is available for $65 – however, there’s currently a 15% off winter promotion until December 15th.

Boots For Autumn

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Boots For AutumnThese boots are perfect for autumn – with some tights and a mini skirt or some skinny jeans, these will finish off your outfit nicely. Available in black or grey, they will go well with most of your wardrobe and how comfy do they look!

Personally I’m a fan of high heels and never wear heels this low, but I’m swaying towards them – just for the pure comfort factor. Shopping in high heels is a killer so maybe I’ll try these out? These low boots are everywhere at the moment – at a quick glance I think they look a bit like wellies though!

These are available at ASOS for £35

Want to know what your friends are up to?

Monday, November 20th, 2006

Spy on your friends!The ability to track your friends via their phones is a concept that scares me quite a bit! Loopt are calling this ‘Social Mapping’ – basically, you can access a map with your friends represented as dots on up to 25 miles away, in real time. On one hand this is a fantastic idea – you can only see individuals that you’ve exchanged numbers with and there is an opt-out option should you not want to be tracked. So if you see a friend is close you could arrange to meet, it will save lots of pennies on the ‘where r u?’ texts if nothing else!

On the other hand, I can imagine this creating a world where everyone always knows where you are – I like having time to myself and I’m sure I’m not the only one who tells a few fibs now and then to get out of plans I don’t want to join in on. So there is the opt-out option but then your friends will probably know you don’t want to be spotted! And what is this going to do to the suspicious-minded individuals who will always be watching where their other half is – this brings a whole new meaning to keeping an eye on someone!

Only time will tell whether this concept is embraced (although I can imagine it becoming extremely popular) but I can’t help feeling more and more trapped – I like people not knowing my every move! But then again, it could be fun … I remain undecided!
