Most of you will remember Soda Streme from your childhood before fizzydrinks ever came onto the shelves. Before cola was easily accessible from the shelves of Walmart or Tesco.
But with the adaption and acceptance of mass production of the fizzy drinks market the soda stream market also died, but the creators have come back recebntly with a new and exciting campaign to relaunch Soda Stream givng us new uses and reasons to purchase the fizzy making machine.
New funky, sleek, sexy designs are out and look fab in the mordern kitchen against an ultra cool coffee maker or ice cream maker.

There are four main types of soda streme that caught our eye:
The Jet Soda: available in a variety of colours and a beautiful amount of techniology has been invested in making an automatic has release, ability to fit extra large carbonators yet very small compact and beautifully crafted to be easy to clean.

The Penguin Sodastream is the most unique of the range as it comes with a glass carafes, with a body that resembles that of a penguin, the design is still sleek and modern and easy to clean.

So after you have choosen one of the four unique sodastream machines you need a container!

The company has been very good at coming with new funky chic designs and this also includes the carbonating bottles that not only can be reused for two years whislt the penguin (mentioned above) bottle can be used infinate number of times with proper care.

The Number of flavours avaible to you now and back when you were younger and first heard about the sodastream market is huge, over 30 sodamix syrups from diet, caffeine free and regualr mixes. Flavours touch upon everything you could think of cola, lemon, rootbeet, mango and diet grapefruit emmense options for you to try out and never get bored of! Furthermore each sodamix can make 12 litres of fizz which is abou 33 cans which works out at about 25p per drink!

The final requirement for some fizz juice is the sodastream carbonators- made from light aluminum which can make up to 60 or 130 litres of pop for each carbonater cylindar. Sodastream have been very keen to note that they are very aware of corporate responsibility of recycling and the reuse of their products

The coolest brand at the moment have come out with yet another success to their stunning range of products, cannibalising the old and in the new with the New edition of the Macbook Air.

The Thinnest Apple yet is the slogan of this beauty and they are not lying. Apple, renowned for  ingenious marketing strategies and smart branding campaigns have continued with a cross marketing strategy, to that of the Iphone 4 released earlier this year, of which had the slogan the “smartest phone yet” it seems as if they are trying to continue to get better every time.

The thinnest notebook is their best yet, with numbers estimated that out of every 1,000,000 Mac products sold 250,000 are of the new Mac Air, indicating the consumer agrees.

The release date of the new Mac is perfect timing in the run up to Christmas and with there cyclical release of new products.

The new Mac has been praised for its advancements what with the creation and development of the Ipad. Apple have openly informed its loyal following that the Ipad has enabled them to create such a beauty.

Some of the fantastic features include its Flash storage which is said to have reduced the size of the Mac by 90% making it lighter and thinner, giving more space for a larger battery that runs for longer on a single charge.

Multi-touch features accustomed to the Iphone, Ipad, tracker mouse and most apple devices have been refined and used for the Air. Designed to introduce intimacy on all apple products the new tracker pad due to its size can now perform many more tricks.


The Face time camera, a familiar friend to those with the new Iphone 4, claimed to be thinner and encased in the fantastically smooth pure aluminium case.


High resolution display, also improved and reduced to the size of a 13-inch notebook, not to bog you down with the nitty gritty of detail it ultimately attempts to make the smaller screen feel like a 15-inch

Apple boasts stereo speakers that are heard but not seen being space effiecent with rich audio experience whilst chatting online, listening to music and playing games.

Nvidia Geforce graphic card and Intel Core 2 Duo processors ideal  for gaming, video playback, and general everyday tasks. Twice the power than the previous Macbook air, making everything faster and more efficient.

Wireless networking, two usb ports, a microphone and an earphone-jack, ideal for the modern on-the-go notebook users.

Software wise- Apple places the usuals Imovie, garage band MacOs the worshipped greats on all Mac products.

Right, the Royal Wedding has been going mad on the Internet- we have been inundated with stories about clothing, her hair, location, venue, The royal bank holiday, the ring, the DRESS!

The ISSA Dress kate
Kate's famous Blue dress

Yes, yes and yes we cannot forget or overlook that fantastic blue dress.

So much has been said about the dress- and it was picked for so many reasons politacal, social, historical and because we cannot ignore that it looked fab on the new princess!

The dress made by Issa London, immediately went out of stock in London department store Harvey Nichols, the senior buy said they sold out within a few hours of the announcement and since we have been inundated with requests for more Issa products.

Just with everything the quickest on the market gets the customers and this time Tesco got there first with a replica version of the dress for an amazing £16 which in contrast to the original of around £350 is a major discount, and not bad for a dress. Further more the low cost emulated version of the dress also sold out within hours of its release.

Tesco Blue dress
The replica by Tesco for only £16

This just demonstrates the amazing power the princess already has on the population. Only a few royalties/ those in political power have had such an influence over the market. Thus being Michelle Obama and Princess Diana, so its clear to note that the nation is in love with the new royal family member.

I can honestly say I would love to wear a dress such as this, maybe not the Tesco version but I think a new replica from another shop will be out soon and I know I will be in queue to purchase!

We are probably not the first to say this but at the moment this girl is on Fire and in more ways than her hair!

Rihanna and her red hair
Fire Head

Her latest song with Drake had me literally crying – I loved her confidence and her outfits and the chemistry with Drake

Can’t wait to see what else her new album has to offer!

I have never been a big fan of the chick but this video has turned me…slightly!
