Sony Ericsson W580 – Mobile, Music and Motivator in One

Friday, March 30th, 2007

Sony Ericsson W580Sony Ericsson has just launched their new W580; a mobile phone that consists of a Walkman® and a pedometer in one – the perfect partner if you’re a fitness fanatic. The phone can store up to 470 full-length songs and can count your steps, the calories you’ve burned and monitor your running or walking speed, distance and time. Another great feature of this phone is the colour change in the phone’s light; when you select the Walkman® the lights will glow bright orange.

The W580 is a slim slider phone (only 14mm thick) and is available in grey or white. In addition to the music and exercise functions, it also contains a 2.0-megapixel camera, an FM Radio and other fun entertainment features.

The phone is expected in the US by the end of summer so should be available in the UK shortly after, estimated price of the model has not yet been announced. Read the full press release on Sony Ericsson’s Website.

A Weekend of Glamour at The Dorchester

Friday, March 30th, 2007

junior_suite.jpg
In my opinion the nicest rooms at the Dorchester hotel on Park Lane are not the exclusive signature suites but the lowly junior suites. Not huge but these rooms are nicely laid out and have spacious bedroom and lounge areas. The furniture is true art deco style not the modern reproductions found in many “art deco” hotels and the rooms are very girly with pale pink curtains and upholstery and sexy black and gold glossy wood. The marble bathrooms are pure glamour – getting ready for a night out in the city here makes you feel really special.

Take advantage of the Dorchester’s special weekend rate on suites – a room like this would cost £659 per night on weekdays but is only £450 per night on weekends. This special weekend rate includes champagne and a full English breakfast. If you are booking this room for a gift for someone why not treat them to an afternoon tea gift voucher, to complete the perfect gift. Booking can be made directly via the Dochester Hotel website.

Celebs are Loving Metallic Dresses

Celebs in Metallic Dresses
Shiny and sparkly seems to be the ‘in thing’ in the world of celebrities this season. The above print from Life and Style Weekly shows Carmen Electra, Paris Hilton, Rosario Dawson, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Vanessa Minnillo all look extremely glamorous in their metallic dresses and matching clutch bags.

ASOS Metallic DressSpring is finally here giving us UK girls the chance to get our legs out and maybe try a bit of metallic ourselves. There are some great high street dresses available; I particularly like this gold one that’s just £35 from ASOS.com. It’s in the style of a dress Paris Hilton recently wore and had an extra bit of bling around the waistline.

Evil Eye Jewellery

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

Evil Eye JewelleryCelebs like Madonna and J.Lo may wear their trendy religion’s (Kabbalah) trademark red string bracelet to protect themselves from envious gazes, but we like the Turkish bracelets, handbag charms and pendants for their other-worldly, exotic feel.

With Love….

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

withlove.jpgHilary duff has been very busy recently with the launch of her new film, album and perfume. I love her sultury new brunette look. It makes her look so mature and sexy and is an image to match her new scent “With Love…”. This gorgeous fragrance combines exotic fruits, mangosteen blossom, cocobolo wood and amber milk, making it a sensual and spicy scent. Hilary’s fragrance is now available in the UK and the best thing is it will only cost you £22 for a 30ml vintage style bottle.

Feel Fabulous in Floral

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Floral Dress at WarehouseFloral prints seem to be everywhere at the moment both on the catwalk and on the high street. Flowers are such a girly print and can really brighten up an outfit if mixed well with other garments and accessories. I love this floral dress – £60 from Warehouse; its striking design means you’ll definitely get noticed and its silky texture will make you irresistible.

For an even more fabulous look, try wearing it with a pair of black leggings, some black peep-toe shoes and a black clutch bag; you’ll look both sexy and stylish. Warehouse have a whole range of gorgeous floral items, see their website for more styles and prints.

Dior Summer Play Extreme Shine Lip Gloss

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Dior DiorPlay Extreme Shine Lip GlossThis gorgeous little lip gloss by Dior is a limited edition so I can imagine it flying off the shelves on April 15th when it becomes available. The Dior Summer Play Extreme Shine Lip Gloss comes in both pink and orange shades but it’s not the colour of the make-up that’s drawing so much attention; it’s the packaging.

It comes in a cube shaped case in either silver or pale gold and is decorated with diamantes and the word Dior on the top (also in diamantes). It will cost you £35 and will be available at Selfridges for a limited time only. This is not a product you are likely to use because the packaging is so beautiful you will probably want to keep it in tip top condition for as long as possible.

Available at Amazon.com.
