#CherHair: Is Waist-Length Hair The New Look?

From now on you may call me Rapunzel. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m working on it. For the first time in a long time I feel like I’m a step ahead of a ‘trend’… My hair is growing, life is good. Who knew that my overuse of coconut oil and my unabated hate towards scissors would ever pay off sartorially. Ha. At this point me and Kim Kardashian could be besties. I’m growing my hair past my ego (I really hope it reaches my waist by this summer. #hairprayers), she’s rocking the Cher inspired hair all the time lately. So… if you chose not to acknowledge this relationship, that’s your problem. This post practically hit me in the face on Monday when I realized something. While having my coffee, and still struggling with a damn running nose, planning my week, working (I know.…

How To Increase Product Demand Among Customers?

“Don’t find customers for your products; find products for your customers.” ~ Seth Godin. When this American author, entrepreneur, marketer, and public speaker spoke on TED Talks, on How to Get Ideas to Spread, all the promotional marketers followed his advice carefully. The marketing guru added that to get what you want, or cause the change that you want, you need to find a way to spread your ideas to as many people as possible.

According to one of the leading providers of promotional gifts in Minneapolis MN, Embroidme, promotional marketing products like custom…

Christmas Gift Guide: What To Get Your Loved Ones This Year?

Close your eyes. Picture yourself in a Mad Men inspired set. Ah… that shirt on his back, that slicked back hair, your retro dress, the vinyl sound playing your fave 60s song. This is not a dream.

PARKA: The Winter Coat ALL Men Should Wear

What is sexier than a beautiful man? A beautiful man in a parka. Duh.  If you think I forgot about men, you’re right I did. But thanks to friends and a nagging brother with a penchant for fashion I dedicate today to you: the boys who wanna know what jacket to wear this winter! And if you think the title is misleading with the ‘ALL men’, it’s not. So dad, yes, this one’s for you too. I really think, contrary to its disguising ubiquity – the PARKA coat is the most flattering and warmest coat of them all. And YES, men of all sorts look a bit better in it. Okay, they look hot, and probably feel hot as well. Tall, short, fat, thin, super sexy men, not so super sexy men, winter lovers, summer lovers – any, and all boys wear parkas. Or should…

2017 Hair Color Trends: Balayage

Before y’all hair gurus say the obvious on this one – like how late I am on the balayage being THE hair color trend right now – please know I know. You’re right though. Balayage has been an IT hair gimmick for quite a while. It was the the ombre trend and its death that actually brought balayage as a trend into spotlight for the past few years, and still going strong. So I guess I’m right too. Amen to that! (to all of us being right.) What exactly is BALAYAGE? The word per se is French, and it’s actually a hair dye technique used for quite a while to give your mane that natural sun-kissed look we’re all naturally having in summer. It’s the most beautiful and natural mix of highlights and shades of blonde, caramel, honey, ash, brunette et all. [the hair dye…

Individually. Connected. T-shirts.

#GuideToCool We’ve all got staples we love, and #ootd we obsess about, but I strongly believe that the T-shirt is the sartorial star behind a lot of our fashion daily choices. And when that choice is backed up by a special kinda message we wanna convey to the world, well… it don’t get no better. The title of this style-post is not random. Well, few things about me are. Actually no, not really. Anyway, there is a perfectly tailored meaning to the above. The T-shirts I’m wearing are designed by a Madrid fashion brand – Individually Connected – around the very idea of CONNECTIONS and how we’re all tangled and united in this life and world, or strive to be so, while keeping our individuality and unique razzamatazz as intact as we can. I LOVE this, and I love how beautiful and simple they convey…

10 Trends For Spring 2017 At New York Fashion Week

Some things are better left untouched and undisclosed until the right time comes along. Yeah, not the trends case though. Not when it’s Fashion Week frenzy and my brain seems to only work in terms of sartorial criticism and trend spotting. So there’s that. Yesterday I did a brief report on best runway looks so far from NYFW 2017, and man had I wish I’d waited a day longer so I’d include Anna Sui, Michael Kors, and Ralph Lauren. I am crying right now. I literally just wish to be a runway girl draped in Ralph Lauren SS2017 clothes. That’s not gonna happen anytime soon, so I might as well stick to my guns here and disclose you my Eureka moment of the trends we could keep an eye on for Spring 2017. If we’re into that sort of shit you know. 1.Sports-mania. I’ll…

EYEGLASSES Trends 2017: What To Wear?

You know those perfect Instagram kitchen decors, with those perfect coffees resting on textured wooded tables, at which the most beautiful man we’ve seen is sitting in his effortless persona, disheveled hair, sexy everything, sipping that coffee while reading his morning paper through his eyeglasses? Yeah. What in the name of Lawd is hotter than that? Well, two things actually. Same scenario in a birthday suit, OR a woman doing the same thing. And if you pay close attention both have one thing in common: a perfect pair of eyeglasses.  When it comes to eyeglasses we’re witnessing one of the best fashion and utility combos ever. Most people these days need glasses to function better. Hello short-sighted me and half the people I know. But eyewear has come a long way from being just that – glasses we use to see better. They’re fashion, they’re…
