Princess Beatrice Wedding HatAs frequent readers might have already noticed I have added a new feature to my blog ‘Annette’s websites of the week’, where I list my favourite websites.

Last week the famous online auction site Ebay was on the top of my list, as I was busy watching Princess Beatrice’s designer Royal Wedding hat by Philip Treacy be auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity.

The bidding ended on Sunday evening and sold for a massive (and record breaking) £81,101.00. With so much media attention I’m not surprised by its phenomenal success and I’m really happy that Princess Beatrice has chosen to give the money to her favourite charities Children in Crisis and UICEF.

A great end to the Royal Wedding!

Annette's Website of the Week

Princess Beatrice hat on EbayEbay- Princess Beatrice Royal Wedding Hat by Philip Treacy

The Princess of York has decided to auction the Philip Treacy hat she wore to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding after it received a huge amount of media attention.

Thus far the Phillip Treacy creation has collected £50,400.05 with all funds going to Princess Beatrice’s chosen charities Children in Crisis and UNICEF.

I’ve really enjoyed following the bidding and will be keeping my eye out for the winning bid on Sunday!


Spring Online

Earlier this week I blogged about Spring Online a website which works alongside Digital Unite– the aim of this site is to encourage more people to get online. My favourite part of the site is ‘Event Finder’, closely followed by the huge variety of online guides. Super helpful and really easy to navigate around!

Youtube- The Internet Grandad

I found ‘The Internet Grandad’ after reading about 83 year old Youtube star Peter Oakley in The Telegraph. Peter uses Youtube to upload videos which see him talk about his life. It’s great to see someone like Peter making the most out of the internet and it is really interesting to watch him share his personal stories online.

Net 2 Nana– Gifts for Mums and Grandmothers

A beautiful site which features unique gifts for Mums, Grandmother and Aunts- or anyone you like really. The site features all sorts of gorgeous gifts- I really like the scarf selection. Net 2 Nana is the perfect port of call if you’ve got a special birthday coming up.
