I think I’ve found my perfect match: good looking, slim, intellectually stimulating, knows all the best restaurants in town and does what I want when I want…yep that’s right ladies, I got myself a BlackBerry!
Now I’m well aware there’s a war waging at the moment (and no, I’m not talking about Tiger Woods’ divorce settlement dispute), with much heated debate between BlackBerry lovers and iPhone devotees, but I’ve picked my team and can happily say I haven’t looked back.
My fave feature would definitely have to be the BB instant messenger – who wouldn’t love the ability to chat with friends no matter where you are in the world, all for free? [Note to beauties: if you’re currently reading this wondering if I’ve quit my job as Editor in favour of a position on the BB marketing team, bear with me because there is actually a beauty-related point to my gushing!]
You see, last night my friend in London sent me a desperate text saying, ‘omg have dare in minutes. Cant do smoly ete – wish you here do for me!!’ Which I roughly translated to, ‘oh my god, am getting picked up by a hot date in minutes and have stuffed up my smoky eye look – I need your help!!’ Luckily, we’re both BB users so we jumped on instant messenger and I tried to type her through a step-by-step guide to reapplying perfect date-worthy make-up. Turns out it worked – once she’d recreated her look she sent me a pic and, if I do say so myself, she looked gorgeous. And her man must have thought so too coz he asked her out again! Now all I need to do is get me one of those…
Are you on team BB or iPhone? Do you use your mobile for on-the-go beauty tricks?
