Why Do We Give So Much Shit About Brad & Angelina’s Divorce?

Because after everything cools down, Brad will finally come to his senses and marry me. If, of course he actually came to his senses, and I were not married already. Since that ship has sailed let’s talk about this #brangelina phenomenon that makes it impossible for me to go online these days without being bombarded by strangers’ heartbreaks over their split. What. The. Fuck. Divorce or no divorce there has always been a mass obsession with both Angelina & Brad, first separately when each of them existed prior to each other, and Angie was this wild cat who made out with her brother and showed up with Billy Bob on the red carpet in leather pans and a tee, while he was grabbing her boobs, and he – Brad Pitt that is – lead a very pretty and beautiful-couple-next-door kinda life with Jennifer Ansiton -…

This year’s Emmys Red Carpet, like never before looked as if all the celebrities out there were really really excited to wear the clothes, the gowns, the billions of posh jewellery and designers, and patroll in front of us like a crowd of beautiful non-mortals which they are. In all seriousness they looked like they were enjoying it, and decided to look fab. They picked the best dresses, the best hair &…

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…

The BEST RUNWAY LOOKS From New York Fashion Week Spring 2017

Think of all the best bits in fashion for the past years, now toss ’em all in some magical machine, and ta-daaa: take a step back, sip that latte (or wine, why the hell not) and watch the most beautiful looks ever roll out in front of you. It’s gonna be a great spring/summer 2017. After watching some collections straight off the runway at NYFW Spring 2017 I gotta say a few thinks aka trends stand out for next year: a lot of white, trench-coats (or bath robes), bras as tops, athleisure or sports-mania still strong, a lot of blue, some 50s silhouettes, 80s accents, slouchiness, romanticism, garbage-grunge. You might have thought I fell off the face of the earth, but nah-ha, I was just absorbed into the sartorial world of next year, and I can tell you this much. I am obsessed with some…

Hello, my name is Dana Cristina and I have an addiction: sales & deals. The moment a skirt or a dress has a price tag that’s got even the slightest amount of discount, my side of the brain that’s responsible for common sense stops. Not that it usually works brilliantly but… whatever. And I don’t even need the damn skirt or dress or whatever the hell I’m holding in that moment in…

The shoes every blogger and fashion savvy is obsessed with these days are BALLET FLATS. Not just any but the latest fashion frenzy by Miu Miu: mismatched, with a ribbon, resembling ballerina shoes 100%. What can I say about this? How do YOU feel? I guess it’s as close as I’ll ever come to being a ballerina. I totally salute and bow down to Miu Miu’s incredible reinvention of the ballet flat, it…

#OOTD: Suicide Squad Jacket

If you’re a fan of the latest cult film – Suicide Squad – this post is for you. If you’re also constantly torn between 2 jackets (colours) this too is a post you will love, cause like nothing else out there the jacket I’m wearing today caters to two loves. In this case wearing both a red and a blue jacket. Perfection. It was only after this Sunday when I wore my new Suicide Squad jacket from Celebsclothing that I actually realised I kinda love blue. First time ever in my life I’ve had a blue crush. With autumn almost here it’s as clear as a blue blue sky that we’ll be needing some jackets to hang around our shoulders more often than not. 2016 Autumn comes with a few looks and trends that this jacket nails: bomber inspired, statement, pop-culture, reminiscent of 80s-borderline-90s, tells…

When you hit a certain age the special occasion term gets some new meaning, and you tend to cater more to the lazy Sunday in front of the TV, or binge watching on a Saturday rather than having shots on a Friday. Just kidding. Actually yes and no. It tends to fluctuate you know. But since the term special occasion has yet to change its general meaning, we are stuck in a…

Weird name aside, truth is we’re all a bunch of pussies when it comes to fashion’s power over us. Trends, looks, funky-sometimes idiotic fads – we swallow and embrace them, and try on, and live by, and then toss them aside as if we’re all under a fucking spell. Fashion says jump and we ask how high. That’s pretty much how the story goes. Of course somewhere along the way we’re blessed…

The SCRUNCHIE Is Back!

How to wear a scrunchie without looking like you’re stuck in the 80s? Now THAT is the Q & the next thing on our to-fix-list. Can we wear scrunchies in 2016 AND look great? Before I embraced a loud and clear YES to the above, I too felt panic. All wrapped up in a simple Good God! exclamation, that triggered more questions such as – ‘Have we come to such a creative loss that we need to bring back the worst? Are we that desperate? Is the world ending?’ Yes, I am sometimes that shallow. Next question please. But you see I am also open to the new. Or the old. So after the scrunchie shock settled in, I did what I do best: I reaserched, and tried to see things from a scruncie perspective and man! was I wrong. This too – how wrong…

At this point – 3 days post VMA’s – not too many actually give a shit about the red carpet best and worst dressed anymore. I mean, it was all pretty much said and done, BUT my thoughts and tongue could not be put to rest so I figured better late than never, hence today’s outta sync report. Needless to say Beyonce was the Queen of the night, Drake and Rihanna are…

For some of us we’ve literally grown up on Disney cartoons and characters!  Be it Donald Duck, Alladin, Mickey Mouse or Adriana from “The Little Mermaid”, every character comes with a certain degree of authenticity to its nature and depicts complete innocence and magic! Most of all look at a Disney character and your heart lights up with joy and laughter. From the toddler to the young executive chilling out at an…

What To Wear This Weekend: From Your Errands To The Gym?

There are weekends when all you wanna do is party and check all the possible getaways on all the bucket lists. And then, there are weekends when all you wanna do is have a regular Saturday. A day with just the right combo of lazy and active, a bit of working out, a bit of shopping, some nesting, coffee in town – you know… late summer kinda weekend that is pretty mandatory if you’ve had quite the hectic schedule over the last few months. Am I growing fucking old here?! Maturing and shit. Or maybe, it’s just this damn flu I’ve still got and I’m still kinda mending to so that I can finally go back to my work-play-gym routine. God, I must be growing wiser if anything to miss my balanced life. Roll those eyes all you want. In fact I’ll roll them with…

For a person who’s cup of tea is not made up of too psychedelic things and closed spaces and weird lights and surreal surroundings in that very claustrophobic way – that day we spent at the Luminarium at Sziget Festival was not too bad. In fact, what had started as a long line of people, followed by a first feeling of claustrophobia (hello maze + coloured lights that can mess with your…

While it lasted it was fun yet incredibly overwhelming, music, fashion, all-around-vibes wise. Now that it’s gone… I kinda miss it. That’s the thing you see about music festivals – they creep and crawl under your skin, until you realise you’re actually a rascal with a penchant for comfort. And if you love the music, the fashion, and the beautiful people, you’re doomed to enjoy the festival, to get slightly overwhelmed by…

Decorate Your Office In Style With Only 3 Objects

Computer and calendar, cold glass or synthetic materials, boring neutral colours: standard decoration of most offices. Indeed, it seems that our ideas and personalities cannot be expressed in the workplace. But that is not true. There are more and more designers and manufacturers to come in this field, with the aim of giving more choices for interior decoration. You might be surprised by how simple it is to change your 9 to 5 days with a real elegant professional style. And all you need is a clock, an accessory on the desk, and a bag for yourself. CLOCKS Comelity arrived in the UK with their Italian design and handmade crafts. Thanks to the online gift store, these artistic items can reach us directly from their boutiques in Venice. As the top of Comelity’s office lines, Callea Design catches our eyes for the first. It is…

You know the bullshit that goes by the saying ‘it’s so wrong it feels right’, or ‘two wrongs make one right’ that we often guide our lives or some moments after, yet we couldn’t be further from the truth? Well… as of fall 2016 Madame Le Fashion comes to save the day, and tells us there is actually a bit of truth behind the beautiful wrongs that feel so right, but only…

As a traveller, at some point you are going to need accommodation to get you through the night. And that too must be kept within the entire travel budget. Whether you are a sightseer or a traveler who is forced to transit to another city, you need to know what to consider before choosing a place to spend the night.  Here’s what to consider before choosing a motel: 1. Your Requirements Regardless…

How To Improve Your Photography?

Many people believe that the secret to good photography is getting the most expensive and hi-tech equipment. While good equipment can certainly aid you in your quest to improve your the look of your photography, it will not directly improve your photography skills. The best way to improve your photography is through dedication, patience and hardwork. Taking the same shot from different angles and distances to compare the results is one of the ways to becoming a professional photographer. Here are a few more tricks from experts like Cindy that can greatly enhance your photography skills and abilities: 1. Know Your Camera Until and unless, you know every minute detail of your camera settings and what kind of results they yield, you cannot hope to improve your photography skills by a long shot. For instance, always focus manually and remember your F-stops; every single option that…

sziget-2016

Were it not for the famous Danube bridge packed to the core with festival beautiful people, the notorious Sziget logo, the Hungarian words spoken more often than other languages, once you landed on the island on day #1 of the Sziget Festival you’d think you landed at Glastonbury. That was my first feeling and I’m sticking to it. Sans the wellies and the parka because 1) I’m an idiot at packing, and…
