Well, it looks like I’m blogging again today… but it’s just one of hose “this is the stuff I’m ogling at the moment” posts. Don’t worry, it’s not all about clothes (but mostly)
It’s not necessarily because of the fact that one pair of shoes goes straight to a child in need, seeing as if I’m looking for a cause to support I want to research t carefully and know I’ve picked one I fully support and which has worth and significance. Because I’d rather give £40 to a charity which campaigns against genital mutilation in African tribes than provides poor children with shoes… sidetrack! And a judgmental one at that.
What I like about Toms is that they’re simple, and [look] comfortable, and on top of that they’re affordable! Oh, and then there’s the added benefit that some kid gets them for free everytime you buy a pair.
Now wait, I’ve just had a thought… if I bought 1000 pairs of Toms, and 1000 kids got the Toms, and I then returned my 1000 pairs because ‘none of them fit’…would that work?
Zara, being a Spanish fashion store, retails different items to those found identically in Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Warehouse, Oasis and other such British-owned high-street shops. Zara is a little bit pricier, but as well as stocking a wider range of higher quality clothes, they always sell basics which I have great respect for.
I binged. I ‘bought’ several items, of which I plan to return most, from their online store, and I can’t WAIT until they arrive! It wasn’t very daring since I couldn’t quite work up the guts to try out an orange silk shirt or bright green chinos, but it will all come in time…
3. Eee Pad
Is it an iPad copycat? Is it a netbook with a detachable keyboard? No, it’s the Asus Eee Pad Transformer!
I’ve been sort of half-semi-kind of researching getting a netbook recently; something which I can take on travels with, or sit in a coffee shop and browse the web/write essays with. I love my Dell Inspiron but I’m looking for somethign a bit more… elfin. Which is where the Eee Pas comes in.
I love this thing. It’s AMAZING.
What do you think of the Eee Pad? Or have you got an iPad/tablet/netbook you want to tell me about? Please do, if you can.
