Tone Up on the Beach with FitFlops

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

FitFlopsGoing to the gym, using weights… boring, get yourself a pair of FitFlops instead and walk your muscles to toned perfection! FitFlops are a genius invention that allow you to work out while you walk, plus they look fab too. The shoes have a special mid-sole that activates and stimulates muscles by challenging your support and balance helping to tone up your legs and bum.

I don’t know about you but I always feel really sluggish on holiday because I eat and drink more than usual and lay on the sunbed for most of the day. I take my gym stuff with me but sadly never quite make it to the hotel fitness room! Now I’m not even going to bother taking my trainers and support bra with me – I’ll tone up by walking on the beach or from club to club!!

FlipFlops are available in a number of styles for both men and women, the ones pictured are my personal favourite and they cost about £36 depending on where you shop. Check out the official FlipFlop Website for all the styles and stockists.

Household Goodies I Can't Live Without

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

During quite a long power cut at home the other day I became increasingly frustrated that I couldn’t get anything done. I realised how lost I would be without daily use of electrical appliances and I can’t imagine living without them now. Here are some of the goodies I simply can’t get by without!

Toshiba LaptopMy Laptop – I spend a large portion of my day on this laptop, without which I wouldn’t be able to blog about my favourite things, or have a job! It’s a Toshiba Satellite and it’s light and easy to carry around. If I’d expected the power cut I would have charged the laptop fully but no, the battery had about 2% left so I nothing to watch or work on!

iPod Docking StationiPod Docking Station – also known as an Intempo Digital RDI iPod Speaker Dock With Built In DAB is one of my absolute must haves. It’s an alarm clock, radio and iPod speakers in one. The best thing about this gadget is that you can select a song for the alarm clock and wake up to your favourite tunes! The station is currently available at Amazon for £95.

Water ImpWater Imp – I live in a particularly hard water area and therefore for me a water softener is a must, we use a Water Imp and it makes such a difference to the quality. Having a shower is much more enjoyable now I don’t have to scrub the door every time I get out!!

Sky LogoSky TV – I’m sure many of you will agree with this one, once you’ve got it, its hard to let it go. It took my boyfriend ages to persuade me to get Sky but now its me that spends more time watching it and series linking all our favourite programs. Life without Britain’s Next Top Model, Scrubs and the old Sex and the City episodes seems unbearable to me now!

ghd IV StylerGHD’s – My best friend and a daily routine. Without these bad boys my hair definitely needs a paper bag! Get your own at www.ghdhair.com.

Hands Off – Wine ID Tags

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Wine TagsThese wine tags are a great idea for parties. When you offer your friends a glass of wine when they arrive simply mark their glass with one of these stickers with an individual design. Then all they need to do is remember what the picture on their glass is and they can identify it easily from all the others left lying around the place.

I have experienced the embarrassment of drinking from someones glass that I’ve never even spoken to many a time, so I think these are a great idea and a good conversation starter too. However sometimes there comes a point in the night were everyone is too drunk to remember their own name let alone their picture but then at that stage who cares whose glass is whose anyway! Get them at Gadget Storm.

Power Plate

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

Power PlateA new and exciting way of losing weight has arrived and has become a very popular craze.

Wondering how it works? Power Plate is a vibrating exercise machine that transmits ‘waves of energy throughout the body activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second’. Overall the results are that after a session as short as 15 minutes you will see immediate results in blood circulation and over a few sessions a decrease in dreaded orange peel (cellulite), better flexible and stronger muscles, to name a few of the desired outcomes. Beats going to the gym for hours on end.

There are a number of facilities across the country that hold power plate classes, visit uk.powerplate.com to find one close to you and call to inquire about prices.

Skullcandy Ti Headphones

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

skullcandy.JPGCheck these out – funky pink headphones that double up as ear muffs ready for those long cold days we have recently been experiencing.

I’m not normally a fan of large headphones, I much prefer the subtle look of my iPod earphones that are thin, white and hide away nicely in your ear, but I have to admit there is something very appealing about Skullcandy. I think it could be the fun pink colour, the use of fur and the fact that they actually look and give the same quality as pro DJ style headsets that I find so irresistible.

Get these over your ears and keep warm whilst bopping. Experience how music should sound and log on to www.catapult.co.uk and get your very own Skullcandy for £52.99.
