Pink iPod Shuffle

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

Pink iPod ShuffleFor many weeks I was extremely indecisive about whether the iPod Nano or iPod Shuffle would be best for me. I wanted an iPod so I could listen to up-tempo music at the gym so for this reason I thought a shuffle would be better; it’s cheaper than a Nano and it has a clip to easily attach it to your gym trousers. It doesn’t hold as many songs or have a digital screen but would have been perfect for a workout session.

However, just before Christmas I bought an iPod Nano for the simple reason that it was pink. I have now discovered that Apple have produced the shuffle in four new colours including pink. I am gutted. The shuffle is now also available in green, orange and blue as well as the original white case.

Available at the Apple Store for £55, this price includes a free optional engraving.

Virtual Boyfriend

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Virtual BoyfriendSo Valentines Day is approaching fast – the day dreaded by single girls everywhere! Watching all those smug couples planning their romantic evenings out makes those without someone feel more like Bridget Jones than ever.

So for those of you planning a night in alone why not have your own fun with a virtual boyfriend? At least there’s none of the hassle of a real relationship, and you have a choice of eight men! The V-boy game is the latest Tamagotchi style craze and allows you to practice your relationship skills – the happier the virtual boyfriend is the more points you collect and the longer the relationship lasts.

It’s pretty easy to upset these virtual boyfriends though as each has their own personality. Different things will annoy different men and things about them will probably annoy you – sounds a lot like real life to me! The game does contain language of an adult nature so if you’re buying it as a gift be careful who you give it to! For £19.99 this will at least entertain you and may even remind you that the grass isn’t always greener …!

£9 DVD Player From Asda

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Last year Tesco sold a DVD player for £17.97, which at the time was pretty damn impressive. However, rival supermarket Asda are now selling one for £9. How is that possible? £9 is probably about the same price you’d have to pay for a cinema ticket these days! May as well spend the £9 on the DVD player and watch endless films from the comfort of your own home!

Apparently 80,000 Durabrand 1005’s will be going on sale in the UK, but you might have to rush off to your local store to get one as they’re still not showing on Asda’s website yet. The player can also handle audio CDs and CDs full of MP3s – for £9 I’m pretty sure these will be flying off the shelves.

PlayStation 3 Finally To Arrive In UK!

Friday, January 26th, 2007

PlayStation 3 Sony has just confirmed the date their PlayStation 3 (PS3) will be hitting the UK as March 23rd. This is a year later than originally predicted but at least the date hasn’t been moved back even further. Elsewhere in the world there have been two versions available – 20 gig and 60 gig, however the UK will just be getting the larger model.

At £425 these newbies aren’t cheap, but at least they’re not available in time for Valentines Day or you could get talked into buying one for your other half! This way you can make him splash out on it in March and then act amazed when you actually enjoy playing on it too!

Printed River Island Bag for the Spring

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Flower Printed River Island BagIt was snowing this morning in Farnborough but now the sun is out and I can smell spring in the air. A new season, a new wardrobe – I wish. However, if you are like me and cannot afford everything you want then why not bag a few spring accessories to brighten up your outfits.

I found this lovely printed bag on the River Island website earlier and I think it’s the perfect addition to a pair of jeans, plain top and a cardigan. The printed bag is brown with black, white and yellow printed material; the yellow is what really reminds me of the warmer months.

It is priced at £29.99 which is a little expensive but imagine the use you will get out of it. It’s one of the accessories you can take everywhere and it’s large enough to fit all your daily necessities.

Why do we weigh less in the morning?

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Bathroom ScalesAfter piling on the pounds over Christmas, I decided to get myself a decent pair of scales so I could keep on top of my weight. As I stepped on the scales yesterday morning I thought to myself ‘why do I weight 2 lbs less than I did last night?’. I had not been to the toilet or done anything apart from lay in bed. This baffled me so I decided to look it up on the Internet.

I came across a handy explanation on a website this morning that answered my question very well. It says that when your body changes food into energy, water vapour and carbon dioxide are released into the blood stream that can then leave the body through your lungs by breathing. Water is also lost through the skin then evaporates into the air. The total amount of water lost in this way is usually 2-3 lbs. For a more detailed description visit www.madsci.org.

If any of you know any other reasons or you have your own myth about why this could happen I’d love to know.

Cute MP3 Player Under £20

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Pink MP3 Player Under £20Superdrug may not be the first place you’d usually think of to look for gadgets, but they’ve recently started stocking this really cute MP3 player with speakers – and for just £19.99 – what a bargain! And it’s pink, you can’t get much better than this.

With 128MB internal memory, and a speaker set with 2 watt speakers and a 6 watt subwoofer, this little gadget is not really going to blast out a huge amount of sound, but for under £20 I think it’s definitely worth it – and it would be a great little gift for a young relative.

Earphones and a USB cable are also included, see the online store for more info.

Apple iPhone – A Closer Look

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

A few days ago we wrote a post on the new iPhone – if you want to see a video of it in action click on the clip below … it totally sold it to me! I’m not usually overly impressed with gadgets but this is going to be huge. I love how much detail has gone into the design, everything has been thought through in so much depth, from visual voicemail (to save you having to listen to each in turn) to zooming into photos using your fingers – I now think the price (between $499 and $599) is pretty reasonable!

Spring 2007 – The Printed Dress

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Printed DressApparently Spring 2007 is all about the printed dress. The celebs are showing off their figures in bold prints, which personally I think look great – something fresh for a new season. ASOS are already stocking loads of fab designs, such as this printed kimono style dress, and as usual the prices are pretty reasonable with this particular dress at just £38.

The colours are bright and the print is bold. Team this dress with some stilettos for an evening outfit, or wear it with skinny jeans and flat shoes for a more casual look. If you really want to feel like a celeb why not purchase this dress in the style of Nicole Richie. Again it can be dressed up or down, and is also just £38.

Own A Piece Of Paradise

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Own A Piece Of ParadiseWinter always makes me want to hide away in bed and not face the outside, and with the forecast predicting even colder weather on its way next week I can help wishing for some hot sunshine. While browsing the internet for some holidays I came across this gift of owning your very own piece of paradise. I knew you could name a star or become a lady/lord, but I didn’t realise you could actually own a part of an island.

When you purchase the gift you will be confirmed as the beneficial owner of one square foot of land on Little Exuma (one of the islands that make up the Bahamas). Ok so what can you really do with one square foot of land, but it would make a good Valentines Day pressie if you’re all out of ideas. Plus you could tell people you have your own place in the Caribbean! The gift pack costs £29.99.
