What does Bling water taste like?

Me and my bling bottle ;)

Howstuffworks has an interesting article and video about how Bling water (or blingH2O for you believers out there) really tastes. If you have read my previous article about my Bling bottle of water, you will know that I don’t feel that I can open it 🙂 It turns out that it really does not taste that well, if we are to believe the testing panel. Most of them believed it to be Manhattan tap water!

Anyway, have a look at the video on page two, provided by The Bryantpark project.

A good Samaritan

“You don’t need help because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq,” said Angelina Jolie to the citizens when she visited the country.

angelina in iraq 3The US Magazine wrote that the actor visited Iraq Thursday this week and that she stays one day in the country. She visits four families from the Abu Graib-district, located vest for the capitol of Baghdad.

Angelina Jolie is an FN-Ambassador and has visit conflict arias around the world before. In August 2007 the Hollywood actor visited a refugee camp whit 1200 refugees in Iraq and she has also visited Syria earlier.

Before she left Iraq this time she said to the people;” I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation.  I hope that UNHCR and the government will support you in getting a piece of land. You people need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq”.

For a long time Angelina Jolie has used her fame and position to make the world aware of the problems in various regions of the world. I think she does a very good job at this and that she really cares about the refugee she meets. She is not just an actor but warm and tender person who really cares and who understand that the interest she generates as an actor can be used to make the rest of us aware of problems in poor and conflict ridden areas of the world.  Keep up the good work Angelina!

Megan Fox and me!

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I noticed on justjared.com that Megan Fox and I have invested in the same type of Monica Botkier handbag. This is the most expensive handbag I have ever had, and the original price was very steep. I was lucky to get it at half price on a sale this spring, and I am very happy with the quality. Have a look at the model on the botkier website. Below is a picture of Megan Fox with her handbag and mine too. No picture of me though, as its difficult to look good next to Megan Fox 🙂

In addition to Megan Fox, several other celebrities are also flashing their botkier bags, like here and here.

Different Life in different worlds

In some parts of the world they fight every day to get just a cup of clean water, let me share my latest water experience.. Last week I was in Germany on holiday and one day we went to a big supermarket to shop some groceries. There was a huge amount of various water bottles on sale there, and firs I saw some bottles of Voss water. In my country, were the Voss water comes from, it’s very expensive, so I bought four bottles. Then I saw this big water bottle, and its logo sparkled to me: “BLING!” I had never heard of that brand and it had no price on it, but being in a low cost country – at least according to the cost of living that I am used to – I figured that it would not be too expensive. The logo was made of crystals and I just had to buy it. When I went to the register to pay, I got really shocked! The bottle with the BLING water cost 42 Euro! I mean, 42 Euro for 750 ml of water?! How is that even possible? I was completely numb and there was a big line forming behind me, so I just paid for it. I later found out that this water is THE water to show off you wealth and build you image. I am neither wealthy or in need of some image building, but if you are: more info here.

Now I have a bottle of water that I can’t drink, it would almost be obscene compared to what struggles other people have to go through to get water. If you feel like it, please click the Marc Jacobs ad to the right, they will pay for each click and my charity is for clean water in 3rd world countries.

Let’s say it’s my way of making up for my horrible BLING water extravaganza 🙂

Bling! Bling! :)

Bling! Bling! :)

This is my first post on this blog and I start with some sayings I find to be true:

The only source of knowledge is experience.

Here are two I really like;

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe.

Albert Einstein

Anyway, I will try to write interesting stuff here – and hopefully somebody else will find it interesting too 🙂
