The Very Pink PC

Pink ComputerFinally I have found the perfect addition to my office – a pink computer to go with my pink fluffy pens, pink folders and pink mouse mat! The other girls in the office will be so jealous, I may have to invest in a few to keep everybody happy! I have seen games consoles such as the Nintendo Wii and PS2 in pink but this is the first time I’ve seen a pink PC.

Beneath the pink exterior is a fully functioning computer running Windows XP. A number of varieties are available ranging from £252 – £419, you can even buy the case on its own for £49.99 to jazz up your existing PC. Clearly this product is targeted specifically at the female market and if you want one of these beauties head over to to see what’s available.

Slippers To Keep The Floor Clean!

Monday, August 13th, 2007

SlippersWhat a great idea! While you’re walking around the house these slippers will dust the floor, collecting dog hair, dirt and other unwanted bits! The fluffy microfiber “fingers” on the bottom will pick up the dust and the soles can simply detach to be washed.

They also look comfy and pretty cute – although if you’re a bit on the obsessive side with the cleaning it may be hard to sit and relax wearing these on your feet knowing there’s dog hairs and fluff stuck to the bottom! Probably best for the lazy ones among us who’d rather sit with dirt on our slippers than get the hoover out! Unfortunately these only come in sizes 6 to 9 so the cleaning will have to be left to us women.

iPod Hoodies!

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

iPod HoodieYou know the world has gone mad when gadgets are designed their very own clothes! However, (as much as I hate to admit it) I actually find these iPod Hoodies extremely cute!

I guess the reason for clothes in the first place is to protect and keep warm? Clearly iPods don’t need to be kept warm but they do need protecting. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve dropped mine or scratched it – this hoodie could have kept it looking brand new.

If nothing else, these hoodies are sure to be a great conversation starter at the gym!! You can even choose between different designs, including the ‘All loved up’ Edition! Get yours from

Picnic Valise For 2

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

Picnic Valise For 2This week we’ve finally been having some sunshine to enjoy and I for one am making the most of it. In true British style I’ve been rolling up my trousers and baring my white legs as soon as the sun pops out from behind the clouds. I’m staying optimistic that the suns going to be around for the next few weeks so when I came across this Picnic Valise I just had to get it.

This weekend I plan to pack up a picnic, head off to the coast and enjoy a relaxing day in the warm sun. The best bit… I don’t have to worry about planning everything I’ll need for my picnic – I can just slide this picnic set into my car and head off early to miss the thousands of other motorists with the same idea.

Packed with two dinner plates, two bowls, two tumblers, two mugs, two sets of knives and forks, two teaspoons, two napkins and a dirty plates bag … what else could you need? Apart from a corkscrew perhaps?! Prepare the food the night before and you’ll be good to go. For only £24.95 this has to be an essential summer item.

Personalised Laptop Lids

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

getimage.jpgLong gone are the days when we carried a picture of our loved ones or our favourite pet in our wallet or in a locket around our neck. The mobile phone quickly became the most logical way to carry our photographic mementos around with us. A flick through the pictures folder during a boring lunch hour could brighten up our day; a personal moment – reminding us what it’s like to be at home with the man of our dreams or in Ibiza sipping cocktails till dusk.

But suddenly we wanted everyone to know what our boyfriend/kid/dog/us and our mates at a party looks like!! First came the picture t-shirts, thankfully these didn’t really catch on due to the fact that a printed square photo on a cheap white t-shirt might look highly individual but never stylish. Then the personalised photo hand bags and wallets arrived in droves. Every other woman on the tube had an oversized leather-strapped handbag proudly displaying their adorable gappy toothed three year old. The craze for these “brag-bags” has finally subsided.

But just when you thought you could put down the sick bucket Toshiba launch the Personalised laptop. You can now get the picture of your choice printed on the lid of your laptop. I’m sure Toshiba envisaged us all walking the streets with serene scenes of Windows screen-saver type images of sunsets and Stonehenge on our laptop but something tells me I’m going to spend my train journey staring at a picture of a 45 year old sales manager’s hen-night memento as she does her spreadsheets.
