Dear gods, I don’t know what to say about this. Um, what better way to celebrate Her Royal Majesty’s 60th everything than by sticking some crown-shaped sparkles to your lady garden? Srsly? Your bedazzled mind must be fried, but hey, it’s your call. And it’s nowhere near as worrying a political statement as the Obama-headed dildo I saw a couple of weeks ago. If you really want to get one of these, you’ll find them for sale at Lovehoney for a fiver, along with a huge pile of sexy stuff for women, men and couples. Please, don’t send me your photos. [...]
The Tampax Multi-Pack: 3 different absorbencies in one handy box! Not really. It just has three smaller unprinted boxes inside the bigger branded box. What a waste of tree-corpse. Even if it’s all recycled and recyclable, what a waste of energy. It all has to be manufactured and transported. You know, I’ve got no issue with the colour coded individual wrappers. They’re hygienic and they help me find the absorbency I want. But why box them up like that? I could have coped if they were all loose in the one box. Tampax, you disappoint me. With you I can [...]
This is a guest post by Bee at Bee Loves Beauty. Since the sun is well and truly out and long holiday weekends beckon, I thought it might be a nice idea to share some tips and recommendations for make up survival at festivals. Based on trial and (considerable) error, I’ve come up with some golden hints I swear by. Hopefully these will help us to avoid the third-day-leprous look that can afflict the make up wearing festie-goer.
Just seen that the leaked news last month about a special edition Union Jack Xbox 360 package has been confirmed by Microsoft. It’s the same white hardware and extra stuff as you get in the older Xbox 360 Family Pack: a white 4GB Xbox 360 S console a white Kinect sensor 2 white wireless controllers Kinect Adventures Kinect Sports 3 months’ Xbox Live Gold membership The only extra to what they’re calling the “Celebration Pack” is that it comes with free Union Jack skins for all the hardware, so that you can make it look like this: That means you [...]
The new Graze.com snacks with dried pear are fantastic! And you can get your own box for free if you haven’t tried them yet – use code XF1RCB8. The one in the photo is “Poached Pear”; the main ingredients are pear, sultanas, vanilla pumpkin seeds and lemon infused sultanas. The pumpkin seeds are sweet, sticky to the touch, and taste like they should be a lot less healthy than they actually are. The fruit is tasty and tangy, and I’m surprised I’ve never tried dried pear before until this week. It really is awesome. On Tuesday I tried the new “Pear Tatin”, [...]
I remember as a pre-teen wearing head-to-toe black (the closest I could get to a grown-up look, styling-wise) and two enormous black eyes of eyeshadow to channel Madonna for the summer camp talent show. We danced badly but aerobically to “Like A Virgin“, not having a clue what the lyrics meant. I’d seen Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan and she was the coolest of cool. In the time since then, she’s rocked some deeply dubious looks [including the rarely spotted "squatting-naked-with-a bottle-of-mineral-water"], but the 80s are back [still, FFS] and Vogue just published an online gallery of her styles through the [...]
A big new update to Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360 has just been released. The news they’re making the most of is that you can rent a server to play on via Xbox. Yes, PS3 has been offering this for a while and it is out for Xbox 360 at last. This means you can rent your own server and create your custom Battlefield 3 gaming space. OK, you could already do this by privately renting a slot on a server if you knew how, but now it’ll just be easier for those of us who don’t know. What Can [...]
I’ve come to the conclusion that too many vibrators are designed by people who see them as some sort of penis replacement. Even vibrators meant for external use are often willy-shaped. This seems fairly daft; there are few vibrating penises in the world, so why apply that model to so many sex toys? Here are my top 6 [because top 5s are so over] other shapes of vibrating sexual implement… 1. The Ring Vibrating cock rings are one of my favourite really simple sex toys – they’re easy to use, they add a bit of extra buzz to the sex you’re [...]
Not that we have it yet, you understand. It only came out on the 1st of February, and in America, but I’m looking forward to the day I can edit blogs and sort out spreadsheets just by talking and waving my hands in the air. Check out the basic info on the Microsoft Kinect for Windows website, if you’re curious.
