Over the bank holiday weekend I was scouring the net for some interesting posts and of course I found a whole host of good stuff but I was especially drawn to some of the (dubious) and totally bizarre items of bling I came across. So I decided to showcase the stuff and see what you really think…. So lets start off with something simple (well it is compared to some of the other stuff, so brace yaself!)
1 - BLING H20 WATER
"Bling H2O is the inspiration of Kevin G. Boyd, Hollywood writer-producer. While working on various studio lots where image is of the utmost importance he noticed that you could tell a lot about a person by the bottled water they carried. Bling H2O is pop-culture in a bottle. But it's not for everyone, just those that Bling."
PRICE: £20/$40 a bottle
