Ice-Phone: for retro style!

Remember that Ice-Watch Phone I was telling you guys about? Well I finally got my hands on the Ice-Phone IPF.SR silver Ice Phone! Kelly and I are planning on decorating our living room in the New Year, so I haven’t quite got around to taking it out of its box. The décor we have decided on so far is going to be charcoal grey with mustard – I can’t wait to see how it will look in our newly decorated lounge.

I have had a play around with one of these Ice Phones (the IPF.YW to be precise), which are flying out the office at my day job due to popular demand. I love the choice of colours, as well as the fact that they are bold and create a statement retro look. The Ice Phone is available in red, black, white, yellow, silver (grey), pink, green, pink, orange and purple. The Ice-Watch phone is compatible with most devices. Such devices include Apple iPad, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones, laptops and Blackberry phones, and so on.  Ice-Phone even turns your PC in to a Skype phone, how cool is that? For devices which don’t have a 3.5mm jack, you can purchase the appropriate adaptor separately, ensuring you get the most out of your must have mobile phone accessory.

So let’s have an in depth look at the Ice Phone. First off the Ice Phone looks visually pleasing with its bold matt colour. The Ice Phone is durable and light, and comes complete with matching coloured stand.

The stand accommodates most mobile phones and features a cut out slot at the back of the stand, which can accommodate phone charging whilst the phone is docked on the stand – obviously using your existing phone charger.

The Ice Phone is constructed out of some form of coated plastic, which gives the feel of soft touch silicone. I have to admit, the finish of the Ice Phone is awesome. The handset features a cord which is plugged in to your mobile phone via the headphone jack. The handset itself is of a retro design and features a push button which allows you to answer/ hang up/ mute the phone, without needing to touch the mobile phone – pretty awesome huh?

Although the Ice Phone can be used in the style of a retro traditional phone, it is also portable.  The Ice-Phone handset can be carried around anywhere. Using the Ice Phone handset on the go helps eliminate almost 100% of radiation to your brain.  Check out some celebrities below who are already using their Ice Phone style mobile phone accessories.

The Ice-Phone is manufactured to an extremely high standard, with attention to detail. Designed and manufactured by Ice-Watch, the Ice Phone is becoming a very popular choice amongst Ice-Watch fans, especially those individuals who love to accessorise their trendy style that one step further.  Ice-Phone is available from many stores but I purchased my grey Ice Phone IPF.SR from Tic Watches, official UK stockists of Ice-Phone. The Ice Phone comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty and has a price tag of around £30.

Happy shopping my lovely blogging friends, feel free to share, like and comment!

Top Finds: 1960’s cushion!

Well today we’ve been looking for those must have fabric cushions. I love anything that is different, or none reproduction. When we came across these fabulous 14 inch 1960 fabric cushion covers you could imagine our excitement!

We thought wow, they’d be perfect for any charcoal/ grey themed room. With a fabulous tree design and finished professionally to the highest of standards, these original 1960’s cushion covers are simply luxurious. With only three of these original retro cushions available, we’re certain these will be snapped up soon. The desirable finish, overlocked seams and zip to the bottom, along with the professional seamstress finish make these cushions one of our favourite accessories.

With a wide variety of wallpapers from the likes of Laura Ashley, Arthouse, Prestigious and so on which would compliment these fantastic retro cushions a treat, these beauties are a steal – and so unique. Available at Johnny Moustache now.

Home Accessories … and a hamster!

Other than the new washing machine we purchased on Saturday, Kelly and I purchased a new addition to the family – ‘Rolo’ a Roborovski Hamster (we adopted him from Pets at Home, after we bought the washing machine from Curry’s – as you do!). Unfortunately when we returned home with Rolo with his brand new cage and his home accessories, we discovered that the sucky stick on pads which hold his water bottle on we’re missing. As a result of this we had to go back to the other side of town.

Kelly decided to go and purchase that much needed new wash basket, from Argos. Kelly decided on a Seagrass finish wash basket, as this would match our bedroom decor, and wouldn’t look out of place stood on our carpet. I was impressed with Kelly’s choice of wash basket, with it’s woven design and linen lining.

I think it looks gorgeous and it finishes the bedroom off a treat! What do you think?

And here’s a picture of Rolo – he’s sooo cute!

Beach Day shopping spree review

After Going to the beach on Wednesday, which wasn’t really all that in the end due to overcast weather, Kelly and I returned home with lots of goodies for our home.  We had visited various shops looking for specific items such as light shades, ornaments and a new picture frame for my late dog Kato.

I’ve mentioned in the past just how much I love B&M Stores, so when I noticed there was one in Redcar I just had to go in! Its always the same when I go in this shop – I start off carrying a hand basket and soon end up needing a trolley!  Anyhow, after spending around an hour in this store Kelly and I were not disappointed.  Within our trolley we had managed to get a teal light shade, beige vase, beige throw, cream throw, twig lights and a rattan heart for our spare room – all of which look desirable!

For my office I also managed to get a light shade, back support for my computer chair and that all important white picture frame for Kato!  We also bagged ourselves cream leather coasters for our bedside cabinets (perfect for when I have tea and toast in bed) and for our dining table we purchased a mulberry table runner and leather table mats.  Our table actually arrived on Thursday along with our guest room furniture – so Thursday was a day of flat pack DIY!

Decorating extravaganza relaxation day!

Well guys, after a hard days graft yesterday decorating our guest room Kelly and I are heading to the beach for some well deserved relaxation!

Being in the northeast of England, Darlington to be precise, our local beach is situated at Redcar. It’s not really anything flash, but at the end of the day it’s got sand, sea and fresh air – plus it’s home to the best Lemon Top ice cream!

Kelly doesn’t know it yet, but I plan to be heading around the local ‘home furnishing’ shops with her in search for some home accessories. I’ll update you guys once I’m back in the office.

The ‘aran jumper’ is back!

I absolutely heart Laura Ashley, they’re furnishings are simply LUXURIOUS! My previous post got me thinking about Laura Ashley, and I just couldn’t resist browsing their sale page.

Currently in the living room, not only do we desperately need the ornate mirror hanging – we also need a variety of cushions and throws for our black corner couch. After browsing the Laura Ashley sale page I have some great ideas for the types of cushions to purchase.

With money quite tight recently, due to the recession and decorating, I will either be browsing the aisle of Wilkinson’s, Matalan and TK Maxx – or simply digging out that aran jumper my granny so kindly knitted me last year, along with the Singer sewing machine, and making my very own knitted cushions.
