Monday, April 23rd, 2007

Nescafe Dolce GustoNESCAFÉ and KRUPS have teamed up to bring Starbucks or Costa Coffee into your own home. If like me you have a thing for coffee you too will be placing your order at Amazon to see of it’s as good as it says it is. Whenever I hit the shops or am out for the day I look forward to my frothy cappuccino and a sit down in the local coffee shop, well now I don’t even have to go out.

The Dolce Gusto is a stylish multi-coffee capsule with four different varieties to choose from; espresso, latte macchiato, cappuccino and caffè lungo; friends will be so impressed when they come to your house – it will be just like they’re at a coffee shop!

Choose from a red, white or black and silver design whatever matches the style of your kitchen. If you’re new to making coffee don’t worry because the Dolce Gusto comes with a free starter pack containing a white cappuccino cup and saucer, a latte macchiato glass, recipe cards and instructions. Available at Amazon.co.uk.

Jimmy Choo Marlee Leather and Rope Sandals

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

Jimmy Choo Marlee SandalsWhile reading through my Grazia magazine this morning I spotted these little beauties by Jimmy Choo. If I had a spare £375 I would so go and buy these shoes, however for now they will remain on my wish list. The shoes are called Marlee Leather and Rope Sandals and have a gorgeous metal buckle and decorative rope to secure the toes.

I can imagine they would be a little difficult to walk in as the support of the rope appears limited, but who cares – they look fantastic. They are a light tan colour therefore will go with most outfits; you’ll need to get a lot of wear out of them for £375! More information on the Jimmy Choo Website.

Magnetic Clothes Hangers

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

Magnetic Clothes HangersEveryone knows how frustrating it can be to hang your clothes up on a full rail. Every couple of days the hangers all get tangled and as you’re pulling one peice of clothing off, another hanger will have overlapped on the silver hook and before you know it clothes are falling off the rail and hangers are being snapped with sheer frustration. Well that’s the struggle I have with my wardrobe anyway – perhaps it’s just me?! …

The Magnetic Clothes Hangers were invented by designer Daniel, and provide an innovative update to regular hangers. By replacing the hook with a magnet, the hangers no longer need to be on a rail and can save loads of space (great news for us girls who need that extra bit of room!)

Plus they look great – really stylish! Can’t wait to get my hands on these

The Wonders of Scentology

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

Scentology FragrancesWhile browsing through In Style magazine last week I came across an advert that really caught my attention. The subheading of the ad was “Curb your cravings, boost your energy, improve your outlook: take control”, naturally I was intrigued and read on.

The formulas known as Scentology are produced by Dr. Rachel S. Herz (an expert on psychology of scent). They aim to change the way you feel and can apparently help stop certain cravings and provide quick boosts of energy. The fragrances can be sprayed onto your neck or around your environment and there are three different formulas to choose from:

Crave Control – Curbs cravings for stodgy foods such as carbohydrates, chocolate, cake and desserts (great if it’s that time of the month)!

Bliss Booster – A smile enhancing citrus scent to help lift your mood and make you feel happier.

Endurance Enhancer – Helps to gain a competitive edge in athletics or at work, great if you’re in need of a motivation boost.

Check out Scentology.com for more information.

The Komen Collection at Mobile Edge

Monday, April 16th, 2007

Pink Komen Milano BagI am a big fan of companies who take time out of their busy schedules to do something good for mankind, we recently posted about Birds on Bikes, Hot pink GHD’s and Sephora who have all supported Breast Cancer Awareness in one way or another. I have just come across a collection of women’s notebook bags in the Komen Collection at Mobile Edge that were also produced for a good cause. Mobile Edge is an official sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and donates 10% of all sales from the Komen Collection to this charity.

Each case is uniquely designed and incorporates the Komen pink hue and the Komen ribbon, this Pink Milano notebook case is my personal favourite; its so feminine, classy and pink! This bag costs $129.99 (approx. £65) and includes a padded mobile phone pocket, a wireless security shield pocket and a SafetyCell™ Computer Protection Compartment. Read more about the individual notebook cases on the Mobile Edge Website.

America Goes Crazy for Free Becks T-shirts

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

Free Becks T-ShirtArtist Sheila Cameron is well known for her outrageous slogan designs and has recently added a ‘Free Becks, Keep Posh’ range to her collection insinuating that America would prefer Victoria to stay at home. The line was inspired by her campaign ‘Free Katie’ attempting to save Katie Holmes from scientology obsessed husband Tom Cruise.

Poor Victoria must be so upset of rumours that America cannot wait for David to move to the US but would rather she didn’t. I personally think they are jealous because she is David Beckham’s wife (every girls dream I’m sure). This range of merchandise is just another minor setback for the Beckham’s and I hope Victoria is able to laugh it off.

The ‘Free Becks’ range includes T-shirts, pillows, baby outfits, dog outfits, mugs, bags, notebooks, badges and mouse-mats. Other slogans by Sheila Cameron include ‘Hillary Scares Me’, ‘I’m Available For Celebrity Adoption’ and my personal favourite ‘I Was Bald Way Before Britney’. Check out the Sheila Cameron Website for more slogans and the ‘Free Becks’ collection.

USB Beverage Chiller

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

USB Beverage ChillerI can’t imagine anyone not wanting one of these for the hot sunny days ahead of us. Sitting at your desk hot and exhausted from yet another day in a stuffy office, imagine if your boss bought this little gadget over with a nice chilled beer (or soft drink if your boss isn’t that nice) to keep you cool and refreshed.

It’s pretty unlikely that this is going to happen and your boss is probably going to need some convincing that this Beverage Chiller is in fact a great idea, but if you’re refreshed you’ll stay at your computer longer and work harder – so it’s in everyones interest really.

After just seconds of plugging the chiller into the USB port the coldplate chills to 45 degrees Fahrenheit – perfect to keep your drink cool and chilled.

Trim and Tone with The Speedshaper Program

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

Speedshaper ProgramI saw this gadget in last week’s issue of Star Magazine and thought I must give it a go. It is known as the Speedshaper Program that trims, tones and firms your whole body concentrating on the six problem areas; waist, stomach, hips, bum, thighs and underarms (bingo wings!). You are advised to use the tool for seven minutes a day and manufacturers guarantee results in a very short period of time.

The program was developed by Olympic Gold Medalist Ike Berger and uses Synometrics (combining two methods Isotonic & Isometrics) which gives greater results than the both of them separately.

If you have some flabby areas and feel you need to tone up, you can purchase the Speedshaper for as little as £14.99 from Shop.com. The super deluxe version is also available there for £19.99. Please let me know if you have used this gadget and your opinion on whether it has worked for you.
