Wow little Charlotte has been busy over the years and now you can hear her side of the whole story with her autobiography ‘Keep Smiling’.

Affordable 'It' Bags

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Matt & Nat Radiohead BagI’m sure most girls out there would love to be able to afford the latest designer handbags that are constantly being shown on the arms of celebs. However realistically, like myself we just don’t have the spare cash to splash out on a such delights and lets face it, the money being spent on these bags could probably feed us for the next year!!!

So for us girls that love the designer look but not the price tag that comes with it, I’ve found the perfect solution – www.mattandnat.com. Here you can find a great selection of designer-esque bags that won’t pull on the purse strings.

My clear favourite is this ‘Radiohead’ bag that can be found in six different shades. The design is great and original and looks like it would of cost a fortune, however would actually of only set you back £75.

I think the hardest part of this online shopping experience would be which bag to choose as they are all so original in design and cater for any occasion, but hey with these prices you could probably afford to but more than one!!!

The Ambient Umbrella

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Ambient UmbrellaHow many times have you got in your car, driven to work and then the heavens open and you have no umbrella? Well I can tell you this happens to me a lot which is why I was so intrigued to read about the umbrella that alerts you when rain or snow is in the forecast. It is known as The Ambient Umbrella and its not only a stylish fashion accessory it is a handy gadget that will save you from getting drenched.

Embedded in the umbrella’s handle is a device that receives information from AccuWeather.com. The umbrella knows if heavy rain or even a quick drizzle is predicted and the handle will light up if you need to take it with you. Handy, ay!

Kanye West V's 50 Cent

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

50 Cent CurtisLet the battle commence as 50 Cent and Kanye West both released an album on the same day – yesterday to be precise.

Most artists release albums around the same time as their rivals as a publicity stunt, however this is definatley a bigger battle than most, in fact 50 Cent is supposedley betting his whole entire rap future that he will beat Kanye West’s album sales. He threatens to no longer perform if his sales are beaten – a bit extreme I think you will all agree.

Kanye West GraduationSo who will win – 50 Cent with ‘Curtis’ or Kanye West with ‘Graduation’, who will have the last laugh ay?? I’ve heard a sample from each album and I have to say that Kanye West would get my vote everytime!
