10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS – 9. BeoSound 8 by Bang & Olufsen

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a good boy this year and this is what I want for Christmas. Read below.

Love Adrian”

One gift that I’m hoping to get under the Christmas tree this year is the BeoSound 8 by Bang & Olufsen.

Renowned for breathtaking sound quality and iconic styling, Bang & Olufsen have once again designed a standout electrical piece of art for your home, perfect for the bedroom, kitchen, retreat or dining room. There really isn’t a place you can’t put this piece.

Where ever you want sound, your BeoSound 8 can go. All you need is a power outlet and an iPod, iPhone or iPad which sits securely in the adjustable holder. You’re then ready to go, so be prepared for the awesome sound that is about to grace your ears.

You can also download an app version of the sleek and stylish BeoPlayer for your docked iPadiPhone, or iPod. You can also adjust sound levels and skip tracks quickly and conveniently on BeoSound 8 itself. Music on a docked or USB linked device can be controlled via the dedicated round remote control.

The conical shape of the speakers is designed this way to create an unobtrusive impression, as well as eliminating standing waves, by avoiding parallel surfaces.

BeoSound 8 comes in either black or white with aluminium details and matching power cord. When you feel the need to add a splash of colour to the room, the list of options includes six fabric speaker covers in yellow, orange, red, silver, black and white.

Check out the video below for a little tour of the BeoSound 8.

Available at Bang & Olufsen stores for approx $1,500. Visit online for locations:

10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS – 8. Bugatti Vera Electric Kettle

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

With astonishing looks, the ultimate present for mum’s kitchen this Christmas is the Vera Electric Kettle by Bugatti.

Great design isn’t just about good looks. It’s about creating useful products that make your life simpler and easier… but a sexy sleek exterior certainly does help!

Bugatti is at the forefront of Italian design, and their Vera Kettle is a stunning example of function and style. Made from lacquered die-cast metal, the kettle features a unique cone shape that is stylish and boils water up to 25% quicker than other kettles. The Vera sits on a 360˚ power base, so you can position it where you like in the kitchen, and it is fully cordless and portable.

Plus, half of the great features of the Vera are not in the kettle, but in its cool angular handle. It features integrated electronic controls that allow you to perfectly control the temperature of your water, as well as a timer that uses the in-built clock to let you set when the kettle will boil. Simply press the button, and the kettle will be boiled and ready for your tea break!

If you want a stunning kitchen appliance that is as useful as it is good looking, then don’t look past Bugatti. Italian design, at its very best!

Available at all good department stores, including Peter’s of Kensington for around $330.

Alexander McQueen Ballet Beauties

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

I came across these beautiful Alexander McQueen leather pumps in a stunning skin tone, which I’ve found are becoming the latest trend hitting Australian shores later this year.

These square-toed leather shoes remind me of ballet shoes, not just because of the nude colour, but also because of the square flat toe. They have an iridescent finish with a cute bow and gold finish.

They are feminine, classically styled and would suit a gorgeously tailored outfit for special events or work. You could also dress them down to a more casual look with jeans and a light silk shirt.
