As the days of November get steadily more frosty I, as a touchscreen phone user, am finding it hard to keep my hands warm and work my phone.
You all know what I mean. You have your woolly gloves on, you are rushing down the street to work, trying to text your friend on your iPhone/Samsung/HTC creation or maybe a Blackberry phone with those fiddly, teeny-tiny keys.
The next thing you know you have mispelt the whole message or even worse (like I did the other day) you have flung your precious baby onto the floor in your desperation to Swype!
This may seem like a rather small issue to be moaning about, but it it still an issue nonetheless. But I have discovered a solution thanks to a friend of mine. Freehand has a collection of gloves specifically designed to make texting, typing and Swyping a whole lot easier!
The simple design involves PVC palm dots for grip and detachable index finger and thumb tips. These tips are held back and out of the way by small magnets too – how cute!
These gloves are available for men and women in a range of colours and styles; prices start from as little as £10.16! To browse the collection visit the Freehands website!

At this year’s London Fashion, I said there would be some Fashionology surprises and Burberry has been on top of the game.
Special guests to Burberry stores this morning will be enjoyed live streaming coverage of the SS11 LFW show as part of the ‘Retail Theatre’ concept.
Chrispother Bailey, Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer, said in a press release:
“Customers at the exclusive in-store digital events will experience the clothes, the music, the energy and the atmosphere in real time.”
The idea is that shoppers can watch the show on 3×3-meter HD screens in 25 stores, in 16 countries around the world. At the end of the fashion show, employees handed out iPads on which the guests were able note of the products they would like to order in via the special Burberry iPad application.
The bonus – delivery arrives in just 7 weeks which is months before the items will arrive in stores.
It looks like Burberry is one fashion house that is fully embracing the world of high-tech, high-fashion!
