Gucci gives the Fiat 500 a facelift with the 500byGucci

The Fiat 500 is traditionally a girls car. Fiat might argue against this, but the legions of women in love with this baby would protest otherwise.It’s small, it’s zippy, heck it’s so cute it almost looks like it’s smiling, which means I’m quite happy saying this is a car that I’d happily drive around town, decorated with a furry steering wheel (or two).

To celebrate Gucci’s 90th anniversary (wow!) and the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, the brands are joing forces to create a super stylish Fiat500 which has been Gucci’d to the hilt.

The humble Fiat500 has had a couture car makeover, with a glossy pearl glass paint exterior and a choice of shiny or stain chrome interior (depending on the car colour). The traditional Gucci stripes give the car a racing feel, whilst added extras such as contrasting black and ivory panels and two tone leather seats give it a fel of luxury. The signature Gucci print is repeated inside the car, with the Guccissima print on the seatbelt and seats and the interior looks beautiful and strokeable, and would make for a comfortable journey.

 I wasn’t sure about this idea to begin with, as I thought a Porsche/Gucci collab might make more sense, but I like how they’ve given luxurious touches to an affordable car, and the sleek design is attarctive not tacky. Gucci has an image of glamour and attractiveness and they have done a good job of combining this with car elements.

The Fiat 500 by Gucci will be available in the UK with 2 engine sized, 1.2 litres  £14,565 OTR  and 0.9 litres for £15,765 OTR. The low engine size should keep your insurance low which is a bonus! This Italian car is truly divine, and it makes me want to renew my driving licence and invite some of the lovely looking Gucci models to come and party with me!

The Clarisonic gets a Jaguar skin

I’m a massive fan of the Clarisonic skin cleansing brush as I find it more effective than washing with my own two hands. We all know that electric toothbrushes are more through- well the brush cleans deep dopwn and leaves you skin looking fresher and more refined. They’ve just realased a USA ersion of the Clarisonic Mia with a jaguar skin, whioch I think is nice. The plain white version might be more clinicval and ‘professional’ looking, but theses jaguar colours have a wider market appeal and add some colour yto the bathroom.

This set contains:
– Clarisonic Mia One Speed Brush
– International pLink™ charger for worldwide use
– Sensitive Brush Head
– 1.0 oz Gentle Hydro Cleanser

$155 from Sephora Continue reading

Makeup tube speaker

Is this the cutest speaker ever? Designed to look like a neon toothpaste tube/ body lotion, the product you see above is actually a speaker for your MP3 player. It comes in 5 cute shades and is completely wireless, so it’s easy to pop in your bag. It charges via a USB port, and I’d love to tell you the battery life and wattage but I can’t- they’re not supplied. This leads me to believe it might not be a very good speaker, but it still gets thumbs up for the cute factor.

Clinique counters get a Microsoft Surface Makeover

Clinique are known for their scienc-y approach and that they make their counter girls all wear lab coats *again,t o give off that science-y vibe). They’ve just gone one step further and have installed a Microsoft Surface table in their Bloomingdale store. visitors can use the ‘Clinique Smart Bar; to choose their favourite products, foundations and lippies, and can read user reviews and comment on products they like. They can even view How to Videos on the Table, quite a cool addition to the store.

To find out more info about the products, you simply place tagged Clinique products on the Microsoft Surface Table and it reads them (probably via a RFID tag) and tells you info about them and how you might use them, If you decide to buy it, you can then print out a bar code and take it to the Express till- and share their purchase via Facebook if they wish as well!

I’m not sure how this will take off, I like the sound of the How to Videos and that you get info without having to ask the terrifying counter assistants, but honestly, do you want the fact you’ve bought Anti Blemish remover sent to your Facebook page? I’m not so sure…. [via ChipChick]
