PradaI reckon we all know that most women love fashion. Those who love fashion also love designer labels. If you disagree with this surmise feel free to let me know in the comments.  :whistle: So, we’ve established that most women love designer labels. This post is all about one such designer brand, Prada. Actually, Prada Bags to be exact.
Being a bloke and all I don’t know much about Prada. Heck the first time I heard about Prada was when my wife forced me to watch The Devil Wears Prada some years ago.That very wife and daughter swear by Prada saying how exquisite Prada bags are. Not that they have any personal experience mind you. Until recently that is.You see, my daughter has just recently returned from Europe and while in Europe she visited Florence. Yep, you guessed it, while in Florence she went to the Prada store and got herself her very own Prada bag. The very one that I am featuring in this post.

Prada Saffiano Leather Bag Review

When we picked Nadia up from the airport she was proudly carrying her Prada bag, with this huge smile on her face. I didn’t get to examine it until we got home. I have to admit the workmanship was stunningly perfect. I compared against some of the knockoff bags that they own and the quality between the Prada and the knockoff was like chalk and cheese.

The bag is made from Saffiano leather. What is Saffiano leather I asked her. Apparently the saleswoman explained that the leather is stamped in such a way that it renders the bag virtually scratch resistant. This also means the bag is very easy to clean.

It’s the distinctive markings of diagonal lines and cross-hatch designs stamped into the leather that makes the Saffiano leather stand out from the rest. Considering that Saffiano leather was invented by Mario Prada himself one would expect Prada to be experts in the process.

Once the saleswoman explained to Nadia how good the leather was, how the process renders the leather very resistant to stains, scratches and being very easy to clean she just had to have it. Yeah, right? As if she wouldn’t have bought it anyway.  :whistle:

So, is Prada a great gift for a woman? Are you kidding? Prada is the perfect gift for the woman in your life. You give her a Prada and she’ll be yours forever.

Game of Thrones Season 3


In my last post I wrote about how much I loved A Song Of Fire And Ice. I also mentioned thatGame of Thrones season 3 was coming out soon. Well, I got my hands on it as soon as it came out. I absolutely loved it. Even though it didn’t stick as close to the story line as the first DVD,s did it was still a bloody good series.

As I have always said you can usually tell how good a DVD, or any product for that matter, is by the reviews it gets. Well the reviews for the Game of Thrones Season 3 were really astounding. I’m sure The Game of Thrones Season 3 would make a great birthday, Fathers Day or even Christmas gift. Heck, I reckon there are even a lot of mothers out there that would love it.

If they haven’t got the first two seasons yet you could start off with them first and then lead up to season three of The Game of Thrones.

Robb Stark, King in the North, is facing major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters while beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen - reunited with her three fast-maturing dragons - attempts to raise an army to sail with her from Essos, in hopes of eventually claiming the Iron Throne.

I love to read, and I know that I am not the only one. If you’re looking for a great gift for someone who also loves to read then I can highly recommend  A Game Of Thrones. This is especially true if they are a fan of the fantasy genre as A Game Of Thrones is truly an epic fantasy series. I have not read the like since reading the Lord Of The Rings.

A Game Of Thrones Review

I was fortunate enough to be given A Song Of Ice And Fire, a seven volume series of A Game Of Thrones. So far I’ve read four of the seven books and I can honestly say that I love it. A Song Of Ice And Fire includes the following volumes.

1 Game of Thrones
2 A Clash of Kings
3 A Storm of Swords 1: Steel And Snow
4 A Storm Of Sword 2: Blood And Gold
5 A Feast for Crows
6 A Dance with Dragons 1: Dream And Dust
7 A Dance with Dragons 2: After The Feast

Game of thrones

Most people these days love a bit of Sex Drugs and Rock’n Roll but unfortunately A Game Of Thrones takes place before drugs and rock’n roll, although it does have a lot of bards singing and drunkenness.   :tongue: That aside it does have a lot of sex and violence throughout the volumes. It also has a lot of intrigue which has kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen next .

While most books have descriptive chapters George R.R. Martin has decided to use the main character as the chapter’s heading. So when the chapter is about Daenerys Targaryen it’s simply titled Daenerys, and when you’re reading it you are virtually seeing it through her eyes.

The only fault that I could find in A Game Of Thrones is that it the amount of characters in the series. There has been many a time when I’ve had to flick back through the pages in order to find out who exactly is being referred too. Perhaps this would be a lot easier if I had the Kindle Edition of a Game Of Thrones which would be a lot easier than having to carry the 5 book series around. :lol:

What The Song Of Ice And Fire Is About

Like I said at the beginning of the post I’m half way through the series but so far I can tell you it’s set in the contents of Westeros and Essos. You can liken the characters to the knights we used to have all those years ago. There are a lot of tournaments, chivalry, love, betrayals, revelry, wanton lust, brutality and the list goes on.

Once you get into it you realise that many of the characters are not satisfied with their lot and are out to improve it. This leads to a dynastic war where several families fight for the control of Westeros. Whilst reading it I’ve seen the birth of Dragons and the dragon mother herself. I’ve met the Others and the walking dead! I’ve seen the growing of magic which becomes more prevalent once the dragons are born

What I love about A Game Of Thrones is that you never know what is around the corner. With a lot of books I’ve read you can almost guess what the plot is about. Not so with A Game Of Thrones. There have been times when I’m sure I’ve worked out who the hero of A Game of Thrones is only to find he gets killed off.

Once my kids worked out how much I loved my birthday present, they bought the first edition of Game of Thrones Disc Set.
