Watches aren’t new to Ralph Lauren. the designer giant is known to travel from jewelleries to watches seamlessly. What’s new however is the inspiration. and this season Ralph Lauren’s muse is Bugatti. Ralph Lauren’s latest offering – a Watch –is an ode to the 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic coupe. Called the Ralph Lauren Sporting Watch, this wristy combines the luxurious wood finish of a Bugatti with a matte black dial, reminiscent of the car’s interior, along with the complexities of a good chronograph. Designed by none other than Jaeger-LeCoultre for Ralph Lauren, the Sapphire crystal back, self-winding watch highlight are the Arabic numerals, arrow-shaped hour and minute hands and an elm burl frame. This could be yours for $ 13,200.

It looks like some of the alleged $400 million marketing budget for Windows Phone 7 went into making several ice blocks for a guerilla marketing campaign in Paris, France to coincide with the worldwide launch.
Although my French is limited to “Je ne parle pas français”, it appears the marketers handed out flyers to strangers on a busy street who then had to have a unique barcode scanned to check if they’ve won a phone. However,
they’re not walking away with a free phone without a bit of effort there was a different way to win that involved a bit more effort.
The highlight of the campaign is where and specifically what the prize was wrapped in – ice. A huge block of it, with the phone frozen in the middle. The winners had to figure out a way to break the ice. Some used street furniture to their advantage, others employed tools with fierce force. All in all, lots of fun.

Okay, ladies, let’s go old school here. This very inexpensive Cooling Eye Mask ($5) is kept in the freezer until we’re ready to apply it to our tired eyes.
