Me and my sister each bought one of them - she had purple while I chose red - due to the cute design which we like. We were looking for a carry on luggage and found this from Marks and Spencer for £55. Subsequently, we had frequently used our bags for weekend or overnight trips.
We both adore our bags, other than the fact that it is a little heavy due to its leather make (the bag itself weighs slightly more than 1 kg). The bag is very roomy (deep and wide - with Dimensions of Height 32.5cm x Weight 49.5 cm x Depth 20 cm), however, its opening is a little small and makes it just a tad hard for assessability. Both of us, being heavy packers, found that it has enough room for a weekend away or overnight trip, fitting in our hairdryers, facial products, hair cream and make up bags.
The leather and zipper quality is excellent and sturdily made. The leather would be a little stiff when new but it does soften after some time. However it is a little heavy to do the short strap. The bag could be wiped clean due to the herringbone lining feature (both interior and exterior), hence when my sister spilled her moisturiser once on the inside, she could easily remove it with a slightly damp cloth. However, the bag would have been better if it is equiped with a detachable shoulder strap as well due to its rather heavy weight after packing in everything.
While red is stylish, I think purple is real classy. The bag comes in very stunning colours, suitable for the trendy, modern ladies, both young and matured. There is a front pocket which is useful and the double zip and padlock on the main opening allows easy access and great for security reasons. Me and my sister adores the cute curvy design of the bag and the padlock and we think that the design should be able remain in fashion for a considerable amount of time.
We would recommend this to be a worthy purchase for a weekend away bag as it could last a long time.
I am an avid Tag Heuer fan. And F1 Maria Sharapova watch is one of my favourite!
The F1 Maria Sharapova watch comes in strap or stainless steel. There are 4 colours of the strap made from "nizza" (fabric woven from robust synthetic fibres) - white, pink, black and brown. The background of the dial matches the colour of strap i.e., should you choose pink strap, the background colour of the dial would be pink and vice versa. I personally prefer the brown one. The clasp could also be chosen between pin buckle or folding clasp.
What attracted me to the watch in the first place was the lovely design which mixes sports and elegance in a feminine way. Also love the stunning diamonds - there are 120 of 0.75 carats bezel set diamonds, all of which are certified for clarity.
Being a frequent swimmer, i also love the fact that the watch is water resistant up to 200 meters or 660 feet and scratch resistant with sapphire crystal. The watch also comes with luminescent hour and hand markers and hand-applied indexes. The hand markers light up in the dark which provides beautiful contrast against the background. The numerals of 3, 6, 9 and 12 comes in lacquer or mother-of-pearl depending on the model.
I'd always trusted the Swiss precision technology i.e, quartz movement to provide accurate timing in the long term. Hence, I am an avid Tag fan. After having it for 3 months now, I would say the watch is made for durability and longevity.
The price tag is quite worth it when compared to other similar watches of its kind. The lower price at £470.00 now is a steal
I'm a newbie at professional photography and after careful consideration, decided to purchase Canon EOS 550D a little over 3 months ago..
The 18-megapixel Canon EOS 550D (marketed as the EOS Rebel T2iin North America) did not disappoint and easy to use. It is small, lightweight and its range of features could be used and mastered by beginners and amateurs. Being high in resolution, it easily delivers high-quality images.
The EOS 550D takes good pictures easily and certainly very fast to power up and very practical. Hence you will get a fast and easy-to-use DSLR. Whether under full automatic mode or creative mode, the pictures that it produces are consistently sharp and well exposed. The autofocus is also very quick and efficient, and copes well even in close up and low light conditions. Noise is also very limited and controlled at very low or very high ISO levels.
For its price, the high 18-megapixel offer is already a steal, which could deliver a maximum image size of 5184x3456 pixels. The inclusion of a fully-featured HD video ability further increases its value significantly.
However, I encountered the problem where the pop-up flash doesnt work anymore after 1 month. However, after fixing, it appears to be working fine now.
Overall, I think u'll get a lot of value for the price of the DLSR.
When I went for my last dental check, he recommended me the award winning Braun Oral-B Triumph 5000.
After using it for 2 months, I have not been disappointed. Prior to using this version, I was using the original model with 4 brushing modes (clean, soft, massage and polish) while the new Triumph 5000 model has 5 (daily, sensitive, deep clean, polish and massage). If you are like me who has been using the original version, I would say the only difference is the deep clean mode. I am quite satisfied with the deep clean mode as the flossing which I always do after brushing shows that my teeth are quite clean and contain less "stuff" stuck in between my teeth after use.
The toothbrush is easy to use as the toothbrush has intelligent chip in it which lets u know when to change positions and monitors time spent.
To me, a good toothbrush is very important. It does help save costs too, as it would mean fewer trips to the dentist. Hence, for the function that it provides, I would say it is a good buy. This brush will be good for those who smokes, as it helps maintain the whiteness of your teeth.
Overall I would recommend this toothbrush to my friends and family (or anyone who is looking for a electric toothbrush)
Vivienne Westwood is one of my favourite designer..
Naughty Alice debut in October 2010 and was inspired the warm and sexy fragrance for modern women by perfumer Bruno Jovanovic. The composition in the bottle include black rose, musk , violet and ylang-ylang. It is available as 75, 50 and 30 ml EDP.
In my humble opinion, Naughty Alice has a vintage and modern aroma, very typical to all Vivienne Westwood's creation.
Naughty Alice starts like a pure powdery smell. After a few minutes, it is quite similar to Tumulte (without its sharp and patchouli tones). In the end there is a tinge of vanilla and floral. To me, being as fresh and soft as it is, this sweet scent is wonderful for autumn and winter. It paints a pretty and quite interesting picture to those who could detect it. It does remind me a lot of the smell of a very very sweet young girl.
And the bottle is so fabulous! I love it!
Overall, I fancy this perfume :) Well done, Vivienne Westwood!
I have been using the fragrance for about 2 weeks now and this is what I sincerely feel about the perfume.
It is definitely for the confident woman. Its fragrance is floral with top notes of passion fruit and pink grapefruit. This fragrance also has heart notes of water lily, and amber for a sweet and woodsy fragrance. The base notes of the Lust perfume are of white sandalwood, patchouli and musk for a rich musky scent. Hence the smell is sharp, sweet and fresh, and yet provocative. Overall, it is a nice light fragrance. I would definitely recommend it for evening wear.
If u ask me, which of the Sex and the City ladies does it represent, I would say it is a combination of all four of them: Fiesty, Sweet, Strong and Provacative.
In view that the holiday season is around the corner, this will make a good gift, especially to self-sufficient, confident women in their 30s. The bottle looks very elegant and the price is very affordable.
