Thursday, October 25th, 2007

Dirty Dancing DVDDirty Dancing, well what can I say its by far the BEST movie ever. I have watched it countless times for as long as I can remember as well as seeing the hit musical west end show and of course knowing all the lyrics to every song in the film – definitely one of the biggest fans!

So what better way to celebrate its 20th anniversary by releasing the Ultimate Dirty Dancing soundtrack. Hear all your favourite classics for the first time ever on one CD with the added bonus of them being sequenced in the order that they appear in the film. So now just by listening to the soundtrack you can remember each scene – I love it!!

Not only is there this classic Ultimate edition soundtrack but there is also a new DVD available to accompany the collection that has some fab extra features including an exclusive interview with Patrick Swayze to keep the Dirty Dancing fever alive!

Both the soundtrack and DVD can be bought on line at The soundtrack can be found for £6.48 and the DVD for just £12.98 or if you buy both items together then Amazon have a set price of £19.46. So are you ready for the time of your life??

HQ Outlet Store

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Diesel Hipper JeansWe all love a good bargain, so this on line store that provides a huge selection of name brands at an amazing reduced rate is probably a girls idea of heaven!

They have everything from Christmas gift ideas and skincare to jewellery and men’s fashion, there really is a huge range of bargains to search through. Its all surplus stock, end of line ranges and past seasons items that are available with superb deals.

I think the best bargain I managed to find on this site is these Diesel Hipper Jeans. I have never managed to bring myself to part with the hundreds of £’s that Diesel normally demand but £29.99 I’m definitely willing to pay, which is how much you can pick a pair up for – that’s a whopping 73% discount as they normally retail at £115.

YSL Touche EclatI will also now be buying one of my favourite beauty products – YSL Touche Eclat from this site only as they are charging a mere £17.95 compared to the normal £24. I would be be crazy not too!!!

With Christmas getting closer and purse strings pulling tighter, I would recommend everyone visiting this site and with savings like these you never know you might find yourself having some spare cash to hit the new year sales – everyone’s a winner!

Printed Vintage Purses

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Printed Vintage PursesI love clip up coin purses simply because they are nice and easy to carry around and given the right design, can be used as a great bag substitute if you’re travelling light!

So when I found these coin purses from, I instantly fell in love with them. They are made to such a high quality and have fun and quirky but yet classy designs and all for just £15.

They really look like something you would stumble across in an upmarket vintage store, but why hunt around the shops when you can sit back and buy such retro styles on the net. The whole site is full of individual accessories and designer clothes. There is something for everyone’s budget so I highly recommend taking a look!

Girls Love Tiffany & Co For Christmas

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Tiffany Party BraceletEvery year I live in hope that my loved ones will catch on to my ever so obvious hints of a Tiffany gift. Sadly I think the only green box I’ll be receiving is the one I buy myself.

The only issue is as there are so many beautiful pieces of jewellery that happen to be quite expensive I can really only buy one. But which one, I wonder? I adore the Tiffany & Co. charms, especially the Party Charm Bracelet with a champagne bottle, party hat, cupcake, Tiffany box and a flute charm hanging off it, costing £305.

Tiffany 1837 Charm BraceletAlternatively the Tiffany 1837 Charm Bracelet with a selection of Tiffany & Co. charms hanging off it, costing £305.

So girls why not treat yourselves to Tiffany’s this Christmas? Visit to see the collection or visit your nearest store.

Pomegranate Pleasure

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

SabaiAfter one too many glasses of Blossom Hill, White Zinfandel rosé, I have been forever hunting for a new reasonably priced alcoholic beverage that tastes as good as it looks.

Persistently searching through the shelves in the supermarket I found a pack of four small, stylishly packaged bottles of wine spritzers. So perfect, as I love rosé and this is a Thai wine with pomegranate juice mixed together to create a ruby refreshing and exotic flavour. There is another flavour to try as well, however I have yet to sample it. It’s the same Thai wine but mixed with hibiscus, a flower that hosts a red fruit that’s full of mystery. I must admit the Sabai pomegranate wine spritzer is both exotic and refreshing and it’s only £4.99 for four bottles in Tesco stores at the moment.

Visit Sabai Spritzer for more information.
