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.

One Tree Hill Season 5 Returns To E4

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

one-tree-hill-season-5.jpgJust when I thought TV was about to get boring I was enlightened by the news of One Tree Hill season 5 beginning on E4 this month.

I have already given a brief description on the new series when I found out there would be a season 5 but now I know its starting I feel a recap is in order. Last season left off at graduation, Dan possibly dying, Peyton and Brooke moving to LA, Lucas becomes assistant coach to Whitey in college and both Haley and Nathan and Karen having new born babies to look after. This season is set four years in to the future, after college when they all have jobs and there’s an exciting season ahead including more love triangles between Brooke, Peyton and Lucas and married life for Haley and Nathan is not as good as they thought it would be.

One Tree Hill returns on Monday the 9th of June on E4, visit the website for more information.

P.S I Love You

Monday, May 5th, 2008

ps-i-love-you.jpgYou may have seen this years biggest tear jerker at the cinema but if you missed it and were a little upset you’ll be pleased to know its released on DVD on Monday the 12th of May.

The film sees widower Holly Kennedy (Hilary Swank) discover a number of messages left to her by her husband (Gerard Butler) whose life was taken by an illness. I know it already sounds frightfully depressing but as well as being sad it’s also uplifting as these messages help Holly grow into an independent women. A powerful and moving drama well worth watching.

The Inbetweeners on E4 tomorrow

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

The InbetweenersE4 is branching out with a new British sitcom starting on the channel tomorrow night (10pm). The Inbetweeners is a six-part series that follows the suburban lives of four male teenagers trying to make sense of their lives as they come of age. The action centres on Will, who after the divorce of his parents, moves house and starts at a new school where he befriends Simon, Jay and Neil.

Staying true to previous comedies of teenage boys such as last year’s Superbad and American Pie, The Inbetweeners is characterised by the lads’ desperation to have sex and even comes with the tag-line “basically, they just want to get laid”. And after the recent success of Welsh sitcom Gavin + Stacey at the BAFTAs, maybe sitcoms’ focusing on youngsters is a new trend emerging.

Iron Man in cinemas this Friday

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Comic book films have come to define the box office summer season and kicking things off this weekend is a new kid on the block – Iron Man. The film stars Hollywood maverick Robert Downey Jnr. in the central role as billionaire weapons expert Tony Stark who becomes the title’s crime-fighting superhero. The actor, better known for his off-screen antics and cool, lazy charm, is an unconventional choice to carry such a big-budget, action extravaganza, but with a supporting cast of Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges and Jon Favreau (Swingers, Elf) behind the lens, the film has a strong ensemble.

Iron Man marks a historical move from Marvel Comics as it is their first stab at producing their own work, rather than handing over creative control to a Hollywood studio (as per Spiderman with Sony). It is also the first big film to be released from this summer’s exciting line-up including the likes of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Dark Knight and Wall-E.

To get better acquainted with Iron-Man, check out the trailer below or visit the film’s official website.
