Clueless Technologies.

Everyone, or every girl, can remember that moment when Cher Horowitz first showed the world her very own styling computer app that not only calculated perfect outfits but also swirled them round her dry-cleaners closet to be presented on a silver hanger for her to then prepare for her harrowing days of high school in Beverly Hills.

Well ladies of the modern world, it is your time.  FaceCake Technologies has brought you a virtual wardrobe, Swivel.  It works through the Microsoft Kinect game system.  The motion sensitive wand allows you to pick different items of clothing and accessories to 'try on'.  I'm not sure I'm sold myself, but what do you think?  dd

Foodie Friends

Yesterday I embarked on a culinary adventure through East London curtesy of Scratch Meals and WalkEatTalkEat.

Charli of WalkEatTalkEat  led us around Shoreditch teaching us the history of the borough all the while enlightening us on the yummiest of foodie pitstops.  Of course due to the tube, my party of four were running a tad late, so we missed the first stop.  But when we did meet with the group, Charlie presented us with amazing beef and english mustard bagels.  It was certainly not something I would order myself, but it was incredible.  I will get one next time I'm passing.

We wandered around looking at the street art, the market stalls and we even sampled a few of the local brews from Redchurch Brewery.  I stuck to the Shoreditch Blonde, but did try their Pale Ale as well.  Very tasty!

Another highlight would have been my first taste of a battered sausage.  We were led to Poppies of Spitalfields for a sausage and chip experience like I've never had.  I didn't know that battered sausage even existed.  It was delicious.  It was pure evil.

To end the night off nicely we went to the Adnams boutique to try a few of their brews and wines.  Glasses were smashed, drinks were had, it was a great end to the day.  Mr. Digital and I left with a few bottles of red from my beloved Bay Area and smiles from ear to ear.

A massive thank you to Scratch Meals who gifted us the lovely day with WalkEatTalkEat.  Scratch Meals is the way forward for cooking fresh meals for one person.  It is nearly impossible to cook for one with out spending a fortune, wasting a lot of perfectly good food or eating the same meal for dinner and then lunch consecutively.  Scratch brings you fresh ingredients with no hidden calories or chemicals in way of inspiring dishes.  Their chicken and chorizo jambalaya has to be my favourite.  Oh and did I mention that you get all of this in just 15 minutes?  That's right, no fuss, no prep, just in the pan and on to your plate.  Pure brilliance. dd

California Raisings

Being born and raised in the Bay Area of California is with out a doubt the most special gift I have ever been given.  It has made me a person that I am proud to be.  Every time I have the pleasure of returning home, it is not only going home to see friends and family, but it also a luxury holiday.  With the sun shining, the waves crashing along the beaches and gourmet food all around, you could not ask for more.  I have just returned from spending a month at home and I feel so lucky that I had that time.  The weather was typically warm and sunny, my family gathered and my Mr. joined us as well.

Shortly after the new year Mr. Digital and I went for a walk along the coast of Pacific Grove.  PG is like no other place I know.  You are surrounded by victorian houses along the rocky shores with that amazing sea air.  It's perfect with it's small town coffee shops and markets filled to the brim with local specialties and Napa valley wines.  It's my ideal.

From there we went further down the coast to Carmel and took a walk through Carmel by the sea village.  Lovely, quaint but highly overpriced.  Aside from the Coach outlet store they have.  Which Mr. Digital made sure I did not go into.  Probably best. dd 

Since the sun was shining, I didn't need too many layers.
