Some disagree but I found it quite exciting viewing Burberry’s ‘Tweetwalk’ live Twitpic show and Dolce & Gabbana’s’s Twitpics on my BlackBerry while out shopping yesterday.

Adding to the fun, Wah Nails will be on hand to add some suitably colourful cheer to your nails with a special menu of Ellesse-inspired designs (above).
