A little bit of Luxury | Music with Marc Jacobs Ear Buds

If you've got an iPhone (or an iPod) like me you'll know that the earphones that come with them are a little boring, functional but nothing special. These Marc Jacobs ear buds have really been spicing up my music lately, not only because they're so beautiful but also because the quality of sound is actually pretty amazing, the buds tend to go a little further into your ear and therefore sit more comfortably than regular earphones which is nice as the normal iPhone ones have a tendency to fall out of my ears.

Marc Jacobs Ear Buds £35 Net-a-Porter*

I'm sure you'll agree that they're probably the cutest earphones ever and considering they're designer I don't think they're over priced and considering a pair of standard Apple Earphones are around £25 it's only £10 more for some girly heart shaped beauties.  

Anyway, I thought I'd take this opportunity to update you on what I've been listening to lately. I was going to include the actual music videos from YouTube but then realised that as soon as you embed them into a blog post it tells you it's restricted content; how irritating! Anyway, Mirrors by Justin Timberlake has really grown on me lately, I hated him with a passion last time around when Sexy Back was the most overplayed song of 2006 but I think Mirrors is a really nice song and the video is quite touching! I absolutely have to include Alphabeat - Fascination which I had forgotten how much I loved until last nights BGT; probably one of the best songs of 2006. Finally, the jukebox in the pub played High by Lighthouse Family today and I fell in love with it all over again, such a beautiful song.

What have been your favourite songs lately?
