FixYa LogoHave you ever had a problem with an iPod, mobile phone or PC that you wanted to fix the same day? I have, but if like me you can’t be bothered to sit on the phone to a customer service advisor for an hour or contact the manufacturer then you too will be thrilled to discover The website has an endless list of consumer products with help and advice on both common and rare faults or problems that may occur.

The website is basically a social tech support website where millions of people can get free online support by community experts. If the problem you are experiencing has not already been answered, you can post your own questions and await a response, it’s definitely worth a look.

The Friday Update

Friday, June 8th, 2007

This weeks celebrity goss:

  • Paris is released from jail after serving just three of her twenty three day sentence. The official reason? A medical condition … hmm. She’s now wearing a tag but there are talks of her going back in.
  • There are rumours that Nicole Richie is pregnant (I wonder if these rumours have anything to do with all the media attention Paris is currently receiving…)
  • Victoria Beckham has been named Glamour Magazine’s Woman Of The Year.
  • Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson split – I didn’t even realise they were officially together?!
  • Emily is removed from the Big Brother house after using a racially offensive word to a fellow housemate.

London 2012, Can You Do Better?

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

London 2012 Official LogoIs it me or does the London 2012 logo look like it was drawn by a five year old? Apparently £400,000 was spent on the deisign but since it was released it has had nothing but criticism. Today I came across a website that is inviting users to submit their own designs with the question – can you do better?

Already they have had some really great ideas submitted, in my opinion they are far better than the official logo and obviously didn’t take as long to create. If you think you can do better than this then send in your design to the London 2012, can you do better? website.

Pink Credit Card Digital Camera

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Pink Credit Card Digital CameraOK so this new digital camera may have caught my eye because it’s pink, but it’s also really practical.

It’s slightly smaller than a credit card and a tiny 6mm deep, so will fit in any pocket without ruining the shape of your outfit. This means you can carry it on you at all times, prepared for those photo moments!

Despite being small, the camera also has loads of great features, including a built in rechargable battery (it lasts a week and can be recharged when connected to a USB port), two resolutions of pictures, 10 second self timer, automatic exposure and white balance, continuous shooting … and more. It also comes complete with a USB cable and a Windows driver CD.

For just £19.99, it’s a bargain!

Irregular Choice Cortesan Emblem Floral Shoes

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Irregular Flower ShoeI am a big fan of Irregular choice shoes but have never actually been brave enough to buy a pair for myself. The best design I’ve ever seen were the Tape Measure Shoes I wrote about last year, I thought they were fantastic. I have now found another pair that I think are really stylish called Cortesan Emblem Flower shoes. They are made from pinstripe fabric and have a beautiful embroidered floral design and a lace trim. The sole has a fairytale pattern too.

You would need to wear black, pink, white or green to accompany the shoe design and they would really dress up a plain outfit such as a little black dress. They are available at Schuh for £59.99, not the cheapest of shoes but you’re sure to be the only one wearing them.

Big Brother Update

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Big BrotherEvery year when I hear Big Brother is starting I do my best to avoid watching the first few episodes. However, this year I would say I am already completely addicted and I think it is going to be the most entertaining series to date. Last night the girls all had a date with Ziggy and all got to eat a one course meal with him. I thought it was great that he saved Chanelle until last so he could spend the most time with her but I still don’t think she realises how much he likes her.

Did anyone else notice a spot of jealousy in her eyes when Charley came out claiming they had done more than just eaten? I definitely think these two are in for a bit of romance, but what will happen when more lads come in; will Chanelle’s eyes be drawn elsewhere?

I cannot work out whether I like Charley or not, part of me thinks she’s rude, lazy and in love with herself but she’s also really insecure which is why she acts the way she does. I can see some major explosions occurring between her and Emily; I think Emily is the only one that would really stand up to her at the moment.

I’d like to see what would happen if one of the twins was evicted or they got separated in some way, I’m not sure they’d cope on their own but I’m sure big brother will have a twist for us otherwise why else would they have put twins in.

On Channel 4 tonight there will be highlights from yesterday including a heated row between Channelle and Emily about a pair of hair straighteners – looking forward to that one!

Favourite characters: Carole, Laura, Ziggy and Chanelle.

Worst characters: Charley and Shabnam

Stand Up Kitchen Utensils

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Standz UtensilsHow many times have you thrown a kitchen utensil into a drawer, closed it up and then completely forgotten where it is the next time you want to use it? Well I do this on a regular basis which is why I was so thrilled to find these Standz stand-up utensils by Tovolo. You can stand them up on your worktop so they’re always visible when you need to use them. If you don’t like things out on the worktop you could even dedicate a cupboard for all your stand-up tools.

Another great thing about these tools is they stop you from making such a mess on the worktop, instead of sticking it straight onto the surface you can simply stand it up and maintain a tidy surface while you continue to cook.

The variety of utensils is great, they have everything from whisks to cheese graters and spatulas to ice cream scoops. Check out the Tovolo website for further information.

Magic Waist Nipper

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Magic Waist NipperI have just found the perfect solution to my love handles that involves very little effort! No matter how hard I work at the gym they never seem to disappear and it annoys me very much. Now I’m not even going to bother going to the gym, I will just slip on this waist nipper and hopefully achieve the perfect hourglass figure.

I have tried on a few pairs of pants that promise to suck you in but my problem area isn’t my bum or thighs, it is my hips. The previous pants therefore did nothing for me and I lost all hope of purchasing an item of clothing that could save me hours on the treadmill. I suppose the only problem with this waist nipper is the outfit you are wearing – it will be great with dresses but not so great with trousers and a top because it might be on display.

Anyway, if you want to give this waist nipper a go, it is available at ASOS for just £15 – beats a £500 a year gym membership!

Free Paris or Jail Paris Panties?

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Free Paris and Jail Paris PantiesThe debate as to whether poor little rich girl Paris Hilton should be jailed continues, but now you have the chance to decide with a fashion statement. Paris has pleaded for people to buy a pair of her ‘Free Paris’ panties and wear them on 5th June (the day she goes down) in a show of protest against her imprisonment.

I personally prefer the ‘Jail Paris’ knickers, why should she get away with it just because she’s a celebrity. Any other women who had committed the same offences would be sent to prison, there’s no excuse.

Mio Destino have created a limited edition collection of undies for both men and women in a number of styles. These knickers to the left cost £25 each but 50% of the profits go Ovarian Cancer Reseach. Check out the Mio Destino Website for all the designs and prices. Come on, join the debate and let us know which pair of panties you would buy.

Tyra Banks Dress Up Doll

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Tyra Banks Dress-up Doll
I just found a really cool site that I had to share with you, it is a selection of models and celebrity illustartions that you can dress up in different clothes by clicking and placing them on the body yourself. Above is one I created of Tyra Banks, they also have Mariah Carey, Halle Berry, Ashton Kutcher, Angelina Jolie and loads more. They are known as dress up dolls and all the illustrations are extremely realistic.

Give it a go, it’s really fun! The website is called Cartoon Doll Emporium, you can now dress up your favourite celebrities in what you think they should wear!
