Beverage of the Week: Bond’s Vesper

admin Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

I’ll warn you now: Supping on this cocktail will not convert you into a suave and sophisticated ladies man or a super-tough action hero. In fact, it’s more likely to turn you into a slobbering, leering wreck of a man, considering the measures of alcohol used in this lethal, but delicious drink. Here’s the recipe from Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale. …

Super cool iPhone cover

admin Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

Having featured a few hum-drum, run of the mill accessories for the iPhone in an article last week (it’s not even out over here yet, so don’t blame me) I have recently come across this rather slick iPhone protective cover ($30). Despite being rubber, Incase have given the cover a distinctly organic look, with the black version reminding me of …

Top 5 Apple iPhone accessories

admin Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

After months of sweating it out and over involving yourself in football practice, Wii and serious relationships to block out the angst, you’ve finally got your grubby mitts on an (imported) iPhone. You’ve had a chat on it, used it to surf for some porn, watched an episode of The Simpsons and even synched it to your calender, so you …

Beverage of the week: Chopin vodka

admin Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

I don’t do Vodka. Not normally anyway. I just don’t see the point in drinking something that feels like drinking pure alcohol without any sort of taste sensation. I may as well get straight onto the meths. Vodka and coke, vodka and orange, vodka and tonic, they just taste like alcoholic versions of the mixer. Utterly pointless. "You haven’t tried …

If you are thinking of getting some new artwork for your walls, then give the tried and tired poster outlets a swerve. You can order an original silkscreen poster of your fave …

Fake iphone

admin Designer Spotlight, Entertainment, Lifestyle & Gadgets, News 6 Comments

It seems that unscrupulous counterfeiters – are there any other kind – are already exploiting the good natured greed of technophiles everywhere by producing fake iphones or, as this video shows, the "tphone". There are even reports of these ersatz devices appearing on eBay. I can’t blame them for trying though, as we all know that the iphone is going …

Beverage of the Week: Whiskey Sour

admin Lifestyle & Gadgets 1 Comment

It’s that time of the week again. The filing can wait until Monday, colleagues are lobbing paper planes across the office and you’re rude to anyone on the phone (when you can be bothered to answer it). You can only just about read this as most of your brain power is being used to devise a scheme to get off …

They also sell this Airfix style wall decoration ($2,500). Unfortunately it’s not actually a …

Giant wee funnel to stop stray splashes

Isabelle Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

When I saw my first boyfriend have a wee after a few pints in the pub I suddenly understood the reason why my bathroom smelt of piss. Forget the eternal seat up-seat down conundrum this giant Gold Man wee funnel clips over your toilet providing a much larger catchment area. It looks quite scary to me and as much as …

Good grooming: Shaving

admin Grooming, Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

"Shaving? I don’t need no shaving lesson! My dad taught me how with the blunt side of a Bic and a load of imperial lather when I was eight years old! It shows. Go and look in the mirror. You probably haven’t shaved in at least a couple of days. If you have shaved within the last 24 hours, I …

Beverage of the week: Innis and Gunn

admin Lifestyle & Gadgets, News Leave a Comment

Since the advent of the "lad" all those years ago, beer has really only meant one thing to men – lager. So there’s always been Guinness on the radar but for a while that was the only alternative we’ve had in a market saturated with over-aerated pints-of-piss. Fortunately, over the past couple of years we’ve started to see an influx …

Ethical fashion

admin Clothing, Entertainment, Lifestyle & Gadgets, News, Top Five Leave a Comment

Global warming, exploitation of foreign workers, huge multinationals muscling out smaller retailers.  The consumer market it fraught with horror stories concerning the destruction of our planet and the abuse  of human resources. So, taking a leaf out of the book of our sister site Hippy Shopper, I have come up with a few ethically sourced items that should ease your …

Monkey magazine

admin Entertainment, Lifestyle & Gadgets, News 2 Comments

FHM? Pah! Maxim? Old hat! Loaded? Used to be funny, not anymore. What the hell happened to lad’s mags? Well it’s the price for one. Up to £4 per month for a subscription to read the poor articulations of a bunch of jaded, old hacks. And don’t get me started on the likes of Zoo or Nuts. Not worth the …
