Marc Jabobs Crystal Sandals

Friday, May 18th, 2007

Marc Jabobs Crystal SandalsIf you want to really sparkle this summer then I’d suggest getting yourself a pair of these Marc Jabobs Crystal Sandals. At £355 it’s unlikely that anyone (except those with too much money than sense) will wear these casually to the beach, but they’d be fab for a summer wedding or special occasion.

The large silver crystals covering the straps ooze glamour and the small crystal heels make these sandals unique – I don’t think I’ve ever come across sandals with crystal heels before! Let me know if you have!

No More Wardrobe Malfunctions

Friday, May 18th, 2007

Breast Friend Chicken FilletsSay Goodbye to ever having a wardrobe malfunction again thanks to handy little accessories, so loved in Hollywood, such as fashion tape, chicken fillets and nipple covers.

Ever wondered how Paris Hilton went from having a catwalk model size chest to Pamela Anderson style glamour model breasts? There may be rumours of a boob job, but she could be giving herself an extra lift with Liftits, the fab new hypoallergenic adhesive which defy gravity by giving your breasts that extra lift. Even bustier are breast enhancing chicken fillets, which give your assets more than a boost.

Stars like Lindsay Lohan never leave anything to chance. Those slinky designer dresses are prone to exposing more than intended, but with nipple covers and fashion tape that problem is long gone.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter For Stretch Marks

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

Palmer's Cocoa Butter For Stretch MarksIf you caught this week’s episode of How To Look Good Naked, it’s likely you’ll have already been out and bought the winning stretch mark treatment. For those of you who missed this week’s competition, the four products tested were Bio Oil (£8.95), Palmer’s Cocoa Butter (£4.99), Rodial Stretchmark Eraser (£78.00) and Stri-Vectin SD (£135).

Again, it was the cheapest product that came up trumps – Palmer’s Cocoa Butter at just £4.99 was voted the most effective product for stretch marks. I don’t know about you but I’m more than willing to give up £5 to see if this is true and will be purchasing it this weekend.

I’d be pretty annoyed if I’d spent £135 on a cream that scored the least points. Luckily I don’t have enough spare cash to spend that much on a cream in the first place!

An End To Bad Foot Massages!

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Reflexology Socks If you’re constantly disappointed that your boyfriends foot massages aren’t quite as relaxing as you’d hoped (e.g. painful) then perhaps buying these Reflexology Socks will be the gentle hint he needs and point him in the right direction. These award winning socks are clearly labelled with the different parts of the body to make the art of reflexology surprisingly simple.

For only £8.95 these are worth every penny. Maybe buy him a pair too and return the favour, they’re available in red and blue!

Are You Miss Write?

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Are You Miss Write?I’ve always dreamed about writing a book. Imagine the life… getting up whenever you like, wearing your comfy pyjamas, escaping to a fantasy world in your mind, and then getting paid for your thoughts, sounds good to me! Well I’m pretty sure it’s not really that simple but the idea of writing a book really does appeal to me. If you’ve always fancied yourself as the next Jackie Collins then get yourself over to Cosmopolitan’s website and enter their competition (in conjunction with Waterstone’s) to produce the next bestseller.

The competition ends on 31st May so you best get your thinking cap on and dust off your laptop if you’ve any chance of winning, but it can be done. All you need to do is send a synopsis of your story and the first 3,000 words of your novel along with a mini biography of yourself. It’s chick lit they’re after so nothing too factual or dull! The winner will get themselves a publishing deal and their book will feature as Waterstone’s offer of the week! What a fab opportunity to get yourself recognised.

Benefit Bad Gal Mascara

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Bad Gal MascaraI saw this mascara on Phil and Fern this morning and thought it looked really good. The mascara is called Bad Gal Lash by Benefit and enhances the colour of your eyes; if they are blue it makes them bluer, green it makes them greener etc. A test was carried out on the shows models to show the difference and it really did make the eyes much brighter and more colourful.

If you have already tried the Bad Gal Mascara please let us know if you thought it worked as well as it appeared on the TV. The mascara is available at Benefit UK for £14.50 and Amazon.com for $19.00.

Get Smokey Eyes in Just 5 Minutes

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Have you ever wondered how celebrities get their perfect smokey eyes? Well I did but I thought it would take ages to do so I had never tried it until now. I came across a video on YouTube called Sandy’s Basic Smokey Eyes (pasted below), it shows you all the basics and only takes 5 minutes to do. I tested it out this morning before work and although I think it will take me a few attempts to get it perfect, it is pretty easy to do.

After finding this video I checked our Sandy’s blog and found loads more hints and tips for applying makeup, it’s definitely one for the favourites folder.

Eurovision – What Were You Thinking UK?

Monday, May 14th, 2007

I have watched the Eurovision song contest every year since I was about 10 years old and every year it seems to get worse and worse. What happened to the good old days when Catrina and the Waves soared through to the top spot and it wasn’t a totally political event?

Terry Wogan makes me laugh, he knows the show is a complete joke and I love his sarcastic humor when the outcome is predictable. Some of the footage from this year was unbelievably bad, I had to look away because it was too painful to watch – and I don’t mean the singing, I am referring to commentary from the hosts and the pink fairy women.

This year’s entry for UK was particularly bad, I felt embarrassed that our country had had a hand in picking Scooch and their song ‘Flying The Flag’; the worst Eurovision song ever recorded. In case you missed it – I have pasted the performance above; please only press play if you have prepared yourself for some seriously cringe worthy footage.

Oh So Gorgeous Celebrity Gowns

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Celebs set the style once again and show off their beautiful gowns in all different shades. You wouldn’t believe Jennifer Lopez was 37 in this chic metallic silver dress, she looks so stunning and is glowing with radiance. Mischa – the baby of this group at only 21 also knows how to flaunt it as she poses in this beautiful cream silk gown with black crystals, I think this would probably be my choice of dress out of the six.

Gorgeous Celebrity Gowns

This deep amethyst Zac Posen dress is certainly the right colour for Lucy Lui, she looks absolutely stunning and I love the train. Cameron Diaz, also into her 30’s doesn’t look a day of 21, she always looks stunning and here she models a fuchsia pink Christian Dior gown complimented by turquoise jewellery.

I cannot believe this is Renee Zellweger, last time I saw her was in ‘Miss Potter’ and she must have lost a good couple of stone since then – I don’t know how poor Renee does it. Anyway she looks fabulous and is modelling a strapless Carolina Herrera dress – just beautiful. Last up it’s Jessica Simpson in a gold and silver plunging neckline gown, this Roberto Cavalli number isn’t something I’d want to wear myself but Jessica pulls it off well.

Pretty And Pink Nintendo Wii

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

Pink Nintendo WiiI loved my Nintendo Wii until I saw this fabulous Pink Version at Colorware. Now mine seems so boring so I am thinking of sending it off for a lick of paint!

If you don’t already have a Nintendo Wii but want one in a cooler colour than white then see what’s available at Colorware, they have been tinting PS3’s, Nintendo Wii’s and Xbox 360’s in many different colours such as coffee, jade and this luscious pink shade.

A brand spanking new coloured version will cost $375 (approx. £190) or you can send in your existing console plus up to four controllers and they will tint them for you for just $99 (approx. £50).
