I'm still to meet someone who actually likes the new energy-saving lightbulbs. I for one, certainly don't, yet have been using them for at the very least, the last seven years. The light from them is bad, slow to warm up and they are very hard to photograph making my job as a stylist that much harder. But these little lovelies from John Lewis are the best of both worlds. This range of Calex lightbulbs come in six different designs so there will be one for even the fussiest of lightbulb connoisseur and for every sort of light requirement. The majority of them come in a beautiful smoked glass finish that gives a beautiful effect when lit and are even good-looking when off. These little eco-friendly bulbs of joy have a guaranteed life of 1000 hours which sounds pretty good to me even if they're not quite in the energy-saver's league. The prices start from £3 up to £12 and are available to buy on-line and in-store.
