Faith's Sexy Heels

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Faith's Sexy HeelsI’ve always been one to wear super high heels so these really tick all the boxes for me! I love the skinny stiletto heel, cute ankle strap and gold trimming – and the chocolate brown colour makes them look delicious! There’s also a gold version with brown trimming that would be really great for a fancy do.

These are available for £50 from Faith – a pretty reasonable price I think. If you want to add a few inches to your height these will definitely do the trick. Be careful after a few drinks though, I can imagine these can look slightly less elegant on a drunken pair of legs!

Garnier Eye Wrinkle Cream

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Garnier Eye Wrinkle CreamOn last night’s episode of How To Look Good Naked, it was eye wrinkle creams that were put to the test. In both the previous episodes I managed to watch, the cheapest products scored the highest points (Palmer’s Cocoa Butter for stretch marks, and Nivea’s Goodbye Cellulite for cellulite) so I thought it was about time a more expensive product won and proved you get what you pay for.

But I was shocked to see that yet again it was the cheapest eye wrinkle cream that scored the highest number of points. Garnier Ultra Lift at £8.99 scored more points than both Clarin’s Super Restorative Eye Concentrate (£42) and Chantecaille Stress Repair Concentrate (£145).

I’m starting to rethink my entire skin care range – just because there’s an expensive name associated with a product clearly doesn’t mean that product’s effective. In fact, from these results it looks as though the more expensive products are actually less effective than the cheaper ones! I just hope next weeks episode can restore my faith in the brands I’ve handed over plenty of money to in the past.

Chalk Mug For The Office

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Chalk Mug For The OfficeI seem to have an obsession with tea at the moment – I must get through about 10 cups every day (I’m sure that can’t be good for me?) so I love these new Chalk Mugs!

If you too need your daily fix to help you through the day then these could liven things up in the office – simply leave any message on the mug for your colleague depending on your mood that day, and erase it when you think of something else you want to say!

OK so the novelty of this will probably wear off after a few days, as it always does, but it could be a great way of cheering someone up or perhaps asking your boss for that pay rise! The chalk board surface is a fab alternative to post-its and it comes with it’s own stick of chalk to get you started … all for just £4.99!

Sleek and Sexy LG Prada Phone

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

LG Prada KE850 The LG KE850 was recently brought to my attention and I must say it does seem rather appealing. LG have teamed up with Prada to create a sleek, sexy design that’s simple yet sophisticated. Although the design is pretty similar to Apple’s iPhone, it somehow seems a little classier – probably the word Prada pasted across the front of the screen!

The greatest selling point about this mobile (like the iPhone) is its latest touch screen technology. Measuring 240×400 pixels the screen is large enough to view photos and video clips but still small enough to keep the phone a neat size, it is also slightly smaller than the iPhone.

The LG Prada consists of a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, FM radio, multimedia player, web browser supporting Macromedia Flash, document viewer (Word, Excel etc.) plus email and messaging features. The only thing it doesn’t have is Wifi or 3G technology.

At £400 make sure you love this phone before you buy it! Check out the LG Press Release for more details.

Olsen Twin Bond Girls?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

007 Casino Royale DVDRumour has it that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are set to be the next Bond girls and the very first Bond girl twins. They have been speaking to producers about an appearance in the next 007 film ‘Bond 22’ again staring British actor Daniel Craig as Mr Bond himself.

Their role in the film will be to assist Bond with his mission but they will not be playing the sexy temptresses, they will be labelled ‘the nice girls’ of the Bond adventure instead.

There are also talks that actresses Carice Van Houten and Abbie Cornish will be casted for the show and Goran Visnjic from ER will be playing the enemy. Of course Dame Judy Dench will be back for her role as M. Look out for the latest Bond gossip, I’m sure there will be rumours flying around everywhere.

Dior Suede Cannage Polochon Bag

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

Dior Suede Cannage Polochon BagI have fallen in love with this chocolate brown suede bag from Dior; it’s so luxurious and is one of those bags you could wear with everything. It has a gorgeous smooth suede exterior with detailed stitching, brown leather handles and antique brass accessories.

At $1390.00, it’s not the sort of bag you will want to take out all the time, after all you need to keep it in tip top condition. Check out the Neiman Marcus for more information about features and delivery.

Foot in the Door

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Stiletto Door StopAdd a bit of glamour to your living room buy using one of these ‘Foot in the Door’ door stops. The toe of the sexy stiletto can be placed under the door and will act as a regular door wedge allowing air into the room and holding it open for guests.

The nifty little gadget is made from rubber and was designed by US company ‘Fred’. The shoe comes in either black or red and both styles cost just £5.99. It is certainly the most stylish door stop I have ever seen.

Available at I Want One of Those.

Summer Swim Suit Collections at Next

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Next Swim WearI love Next clothes, especially their summer range and have just spotted the huge swimwear collection on their website. The choice is fantastic and they have styles to suit everyone. I was also surprised by the prices, I always think Next is expensive but the majority of items are no more expensive than TOPSHOP.

I love this group of turquoise items; it’s such a summery colour and will really make you stand out from the crowd. I particularly like the kaftans shown in this picture; they are easy to wear and save you throwing on shorts and a top.
