Especially designed to protect delicate and coloured hair, this clever dryer helps to prevent heat damage, giving your hair a vibrant and healthy looking finish for longer.

Got Kids? Have you heard of Justin’s World? It might be the entertainment you need! #children #jigsongs #apps

Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 21.39.25

If you thought it was ridiculous that kids were getting gadget savvy then its about to get a whole lot worse…or is it? Britain’s best-loved children’s entertainer Justin Fletcher – also known as Mr Tumble – has launched Justin’s World this summer, a new range of apps for pre-school children.

And its most recent addition is ‘Jigsongs’ aimed at children aged 2-6yrs, out now for just 69p?

We all know how much children love doing puzzles. We also know how much they love singing their favourite songs. And of course Justin Fletcher is pretty popular with little ones as well. So why not put all three together. Well, that’s exactly what he’s done and its come in the form of Jigsongs!

Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 21.34.40
Kids (and adults) can choose from: Old Macdonald, Twinkle Twinkle, One Two Three Four Five, or Justin’s all time personal favourite, The Grand Old Duke of York.

So, if you’ve got a couple of little ones, its time to give yourself some ‘me’ time, and let them take advantage of this fab new fun for kids.

If you’re already familiar with Justin Fletcher’s work, you can expect all the fun, excitement and entertainment brought to the screen, but with an entirely new interactive, learning through play experience. Justin’s World puts the child in control of activities, allowing them to consume the content in a way and at a speed that suits them.Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 21.40.38

Sounds perfect…where can I get it? 

The first two of four of Justin’s World’s apps are already available at the Apple App store for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and were released from May 2013 onwards with android versions of the apps expected to follow shortly.

The apps are being developed in partnership with the creator of Mr Tumble and series producer of ‘Something Special’, Allan Johnston.

How does it all work? 

Well, Justin’s World uses storybooks, games and puzzles that build on Justin’s well-known character-based performances and features high quality illustrations, video and music combined with curriculum-based teaching games from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Primary National Curriculum. So you may be able to give your kiddies a head start in world domination by speeding up their education…voluntarily! Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 21.41.09

Tell us more…

Ok, the first releases in the series of Justin’s World apps include interactive adaptations of popular children’s play activities such as books, puzzles, songs and games:

  • Justin’s World – Goldilocks – an interactive adaptation of the popular children’s story. Justin guides and helps you through a series of number and language based activities in line with the EYFS. All characters played by Justin Fletcher
  • Justin’s World – Letter Sounds – pick the letter that matches the sound then drag and drop to complete the word! Developed in line with the Primary National Strategy, this phonics  activity features Justin teaching the sound and letting the child join in.
  • Justin’s World – Jigsongs – puzzles but with a special sing along musical twist! Drag the pieces in place to finish the puzzle and watch videos of Justin come to life singing some of his favourite songs. The first release includes Old Macdonald, Twinkle Twinkle, 1,2,3,4,5 and The Grand Old Duke of York.
  • Justin’s World Animal Sounds – A totally free app to say thank you to all or Justin’s World followers. Join in with Justin’s hilarious impersonations of well known animals

Take a bite of the big Apple iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S and the new #juicecube from @johnlewisretail

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 08.46.58

Well phone lovers, its probably the most exciting announcement you’ve heard all year, there is not one but TWO new iPhones coming our way. Yesterday in sunny Cupertino, California,  Apple CEO Tim Cook took to the stage to announce the new technology coming from the ever so exciting giant. What he/they managed to do is bring Summer back into our lives with the colourful iPhone 5c and make us feel a little more futuristic with Apples new flagship phone the iPhone 5S.

So lets take a closer look shall we?

Say bye bye to the iPhone 5 as it will no longer be produced. Instead you’ll have a choice of five colours to start with, for this “bridging phone’s” plastic casing, which everyone has been anticipating and predicting!

Don’t be fooled by its looks, the iPhone 5c will end up being almost identical to the iPhone 5 in terms of its internal features, which for the more tech savvy amongst you will mean an A6 processor, 4-inch retina display and an 8 megapixel camera.

In terms of what is different from the iPhone 5, and better, you’ll find with the iPhone 5c, that it has a much larger battery (which means longer talk time!) and it also has a new HD Face time camera.

This new handset will set you back (out of contract)  16GB £469 and 32GB £549.

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 08.10.39

Next up, the biggy….

The  iPhone 5s is really what everyone was waiting for with baited breath – with all its new features its hard to describe this in anyway other than a ‘mega-phone’ it really feels like Apple have upped its game once again and given the crowds what they want.

So remember its what’s on the inside that counts. First up you can expect a brand new camera called iSight, which boasts a new lens with an F2.2 aperture, new sensor and bigger pixels. Guess how good your Instagram pics are gonna be now?! And, no more password protecters, with this tech beauty, you’re going to feel like Tom Cruise in Minority Report as you get to grips with its fingerprint sensor! Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 08.42.15

In terms of speed, its new processors mean that with its A7 chip, the iPhone 5S will be twice as fast as the iPhone 5 and 5C. And here’s another bit of cool knowledge, the iPhone 5S has a 64-bit processor, which makes it 5x faster than the iPhone 5 and 56 x faster than the very first iPhone!! (We’ve come a long way baby…)

The battery will also be longer lasting giving you 2 more hours of talk time and 25 more hours of standby time.

And finally, say bye bye to the old colour iPhones, this new version is available in three colours including silver, gold and space grey.

Get some future tech for these prices (outside of contract) 16GB £549, 32GB £629, 64GB £709.

The Apple iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s will be available to buy in the UK from the 20th September.

But I can’t wait that long and neither can my current iPhone!

Don’t despair, we know the new iPhones look appealing, but for most of us, buying these are still a long way off, and we’re still having to struggle with the lesser lasting battery lives on our current iPhones. So fear not, we’ve found a solution …. introducing, the Juice Cube!Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 08.43.29

With prices around £24.95, this is an absolute life-saver for those who can’t do without their gadgets on the go; the Juice Cube has been designed to deliver power when needed. Simply charge the compact Cube and attach it to a phone, games console or MP3 player via a USB cable with the appropriate connector. A three-hour charge will deliver up to six hours of power for a 3G mobile phone, 13.2 hours for a 2G mobile phone, 60 hours for an MP3 player and 20 hours for a games console.

If you need to get your hands on one of these ASAP, then we’d recommend contacting www.johnlewis.com

Bring out your inner hero in Game of Thrones Ascent! #Gameofthrones #videogame #facebook #gaming

GOTA-logo-highres-1

By sword, coin, or whisper, have you ever fancied yourself as the most powerful noble in Westeros? Well, you don’t need to start prepping your acting monologue to impress those casting directors, because Zygna, the makers of the hugely popular Facebook game Farmville, have brought Game of Thrones right into your own hands with Ascent.

This sounds too good to be true… what do I do in it?

Based on the hit HBO series and books, in Game of Thrones Ascent players lead the life of a noble during the time of upheaval as portrayed in the books and the series so the game unites both story and strategy. Players claim their birthright by choosing which of the great houses they swear allegiance to, securing their holdings, developing their lands and personal reputation, and assigning sworn swords to quests, all while forging alliances with new friends. GOTAunsullied

How do I get involved?

Well, its easy… but if you’re one of the very few people who don’t have Facebook, now might be the time to sign up! All you need to do is click on this link to start playing.

There is also a BETA version of the game which is also possible for you to play, but we’d recommend sticking with this one. Now lets just hope that the makers think about bringing it out on more than just Facebook eh?! GOTA.palace_gardens

What’s everyone raving about?

Well, when asked, fans say the allure of the game is that it is very close to the original storyline in the books and that they can fully immerse themselves in the world of Westeros where your decision affects the game going forwards.

Game of Thrones Ascent has experienced more than 500,000 installations since launching — many of those players returning to the virtual world of Westeros many times.

So let us know how you get on, and if you feel that the game is worthy of a bag of dragons then let us know.

Happy gaming Snoochers!

Now where would we be without our iphone? Probably lost somewhere without the help of Google Maps that’s for sure. Well, it wasn’t too long ago that we all had black and white screens on our phones and the idea of an app was in a galaxy far, far away. How far along have we come?! Its quite scary. We here at Snoochie Boochies, love looking to the future, and when it comes to gadgets, wondering what crazy invention the world will be wearing/using next is super exciting.

So, we thought we’d highlight a couple of gadgets which may look bizarre now, but might just be an essential item in a few short years to come! Oh and we have to say a huge thank you to the awesome and cool Firebox.com that provided us with the inspiration for these pieces (and some of the descriptions!) You can find all of these gadgets on the Firebox website!

1) Bluetooth Gloves

Anyone seen the Total Recall remake with Colin Farrell? Well in that film he has an inbuilt phone in his hand. We’re not quite there yet, but withScreen Shot 2013-05-02 at 09.17.40 this “handy” (sorry) gadget you can almost certainly think you look as cool as him.

The name Bluetooth Gloves doesn’t give much away. ‘Sure’ you might be thinking, ‘they’re gloves that work with a touchscreen, that’s cool’. But prepare yourselves, because we’re through the looking glass here, people.

Not only are these gloves comfy and warm (and totally touch-screen friendly), but they will wirelessly synch with your smartphone, turning your hand into a phone… that’s right. Just pull them on, press the ‘answer’ button and make the classic ‘phone hand’ shape. Now you’re talking.

Utilising an integrated microphone and speaker in the tips of the thumb and little finger, and a control pad on the top, you can communicate without taking your phone out of your pocket.

It’s not quite hands-free, but it still makes answering the phone supremely simple, plus you get to look like you’re having an imaginary conversation.

Talk to the hand.

2) Wine Handbag

Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 09.25.41Yes that box of wine that you remember lugging from one student party to another has come back into fashion…literally. Never be the one who forgot to ‘bring a bottle’ with this handy contraption, and if you’re a fashionista its the (ahem) latest in hi-tech fashion…is it a bag, is it a bottle? No its a wine handbag!

Whether you’re gossiping with the girls during a Sex and the City style night-in, or digging your high-heels out of the mud after a debaucherous delightful day at the races; you’ll always be sipping in style.

With it’s distinctly designer-style, the bag looks like it’s come straight off the catwalk. But rest assured that the wine inside is sourced from the finest French wineries (likely located on some preposterously picturesque estate) and more than matches this high-end Wine Handbag.

Whether Red, White or sparkling Rosé, everyone knows that the finest wine comes in a bag.

 

3) Smartskin iPad Condoms

Well… we did pay a lot of money for our iPad…why not erm, protect it?! Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 09.31.01

You never know when you’ll get lucky… enough to take your iPad to the beach, or on a boat, or cycling in the rain, or driving a rally car, or riding a camel in the desert.

But thanks to the sleek and stretchy Condoms for iPad, you’ll never have to say no to an unexpected bit of iPad excitement again.

Keep them in your wallet for that special situation or emergency occasion, and know that your iPad has protection at a moment’s notice.

NB: iPad and Good Times not included!

 

So there you go, and remember folks this is only the tip of the iceberg. So if you want to be ahead of the game, make sure you head straight to Firefox and get yourself one of the futures must haves 🙂

Happy Shopping!

 

How to look elegant and fabulous when pregnant #pregnancy #fashion #lifestyle

Screen Shot 2013-04-21 at 21.53.36

Well it really does seem that 2013 is going to be a big year for babies… what with the hotly anticipated Royal baby due this Summer in the UK, and the queen of reality TV producing a suitable heir to the Kardashian throne over in the US. With all this going on, it seems that the world is going baby crazy!! Screen Shot 2013-04-21 at 21.54.11

So whilst we all wait with baited breath to see who has the cutest kiddie later this year, we can’t help but spend our time doting on who made the right (or wrong) fashion choices throughout their pregnancy.

So lets start with the not so good shall we? Poor old Kim Kardashian – she is getting it in the ear quite a lot about her  pregnancy clothing choices. But should we really be giving her such a hard time? Shouldn’t you be proud of your beautiful bump? Of course, so why when wearing such tight gear is she getting such a telling off? Well, maybe squeezing into a leather dress when pregnant is a little over board (and may be a little too restrictive for baby bump), but she looks happy and healthy so we’ll let this one slide.

If you want to show off your beautiful bump when out and about, how best should you do this? Well here’s a selection of choices which we think look lovely and elegant:

Screen Shot 2013-04-21 at 22.05.141) Balancing the Bump. 

Here you can look stylish and ready to take on the world as you head out teaming a tight top with a fashionable jacket to balance it up, and then some great skinny jeans to remind yourself that yes, you still can fit into them, and yes, you still look fabulous!

 

 

2) Blooming in boho chic Screen Shot 2013-04-21 at 22.12.26

The queen of mastering a fashionable pregnancy is Nicole Richie. With Summer quickly approaching its going to be all about cute sandals and floaty dresses (the perfect combination to show off your blossoming bump and glowing complexion). You can find inspiration from Nicoles’ A Pea in the Pod collection – a perfect excuse to do some internet shopping!

Screen Shot 2013-04-21 at 22.21.503) Go all out Glam! 

Who says you don’t know how to party when pregnant? On a (relatively relaxed) night out, make sure you still turn heads and dismiss anything dumpy by saying hello to sensational pregnancy wear. Take some inspiration from Peaches Geldof (yes, we never thought we’d say this but…) she looks so fabulous in this vintage looking frock which says ‘I’m pregnant, proud and fabulous’ Who says this look is just for celebrities, get creative and get out there!

So there you go, three simple ways of looking pregnant and perfect at the same time! So Kimmy K may not be our style guru of 2013, but at least she embraces her bumps and curves as every woman should.
