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. It could be your Christmas this year, as RETRO is back in 2017 and it’s got a hold of more than just our retro clothing. It’s spread on to our men’s daily fashions, and our home decor. The future sounds great: new trends are fantastic, extravagance is beyond, but there’s just something about RETRO that is time-traveling-irresistible and kinda cool to surround yourself with. Besides, it’s got a special vibe to it, so going all retro with your Christmas gifts this year could turn into an unforgettable holiday. Ladies, let’s get real now… we know how to do retro, whether it’s just splash in our outfit or a…

Shopping For: The Best SWEATSHIRTS & SWEATERS

Whether you’re a sweater or a sweatshirt kinda gal… I got your back. And quite a back you will have after this post. Style wise speaking. Sweaters used to be the only go-to-winter pieces for a long time, which triggered billions of amazing styles to pick from. Thanks for making it harder dear Fashion. Then, outta the big beautiful blue sky came a sweater sibling with a penchant for sports – the sweatshirt. It got so many nips and tucks over the years that it sometimes looks way more sophisticated than knits. Truth is, sweater or sweatshirts is like saying tomato tomato, EXCEPT, as similar as they may look from afar, the style they each translate to is so different it’s insane. Sweatshirts are more sporty luxe, and cool, and sophisticated, and sweaters, are more classic, and warm, and cozy, and sort of French chic…

Is PARKA Still The #1 Winter Coat For Girls?

It certainly is the safest if not the most boring choice. Yeah, I’m aware y’all might consider killing me over this statement, but hear me out. Earlier this week I ranted about the PARKA for men being a ticket to their winter hotness (and not just temperature wise, if you know what I mean), and I single handily picked the hottest men in the coolest parkas so we can drool over them, and convince the male beautiful specimens in our lives to join, if they haven’t, on the parka bandwagon. Okay. Seriously I’d rather see a beautiful man in a parka then a puffer. Cause you know, birthday suits are outta question. Anyway… why the damn double standard on this one? When it comes to us, the Goddesses of our men’s lives I truly think PARKAS look great, feel great (they do keep us warm),…

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…

Girls Blending Fitness With Fashion

Getting in shape is a thing everyone aspires to in some degree or another. There’s always something that could be slightly firmer, tighter or more toned. The downside to this – besides the obligatory dieting and having to go to a gym – is that working out catches us in our most unflattering state – sweaty, disheveled and with our hair in disarray. Not to mention having to wear workout clothes which aren’t the most complimentary in any circumstances. Except that last statement isn’t quite true. In recent years gym wear has taken on a whole new dimension and is now functional as well as being downright sexy. To demonstrate, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ladies who’ve managed to blend fitness and aesthetics to look absolutely gorgeous while rocking workout gear. Adrianne Ho Adrianne Ho’s Instagram makes even the most ordinary activity look…

5 Sleeping Habits that Ruin Your Skin

You know that sleep is good for your health and your beauty routine. Along with keeping your skin from looking tired, sleep also has an effect on the elasticity and firmness of your skin – the cheapest anti-aging formula around! As you sleep, you reduce cortisol levels; high cortisol levels damage the collagen in your skin, resulting in wrinkles, so low cortisol levels are ideal for maintaining a youthful appearance. Knowing that sleep is good for us overall is one thing, but how we sleep is also a factor in the equation. You may be blocking your beauty sleep efforts by engaging in sleeping habits that actually leave your skin worse off after a full night’s sleep. Sleeping Position Optimal beauty sleep is best achieved on your back. Although stomach or side may feel comfortable, these positions are one of the biggest culprits causing…

The Timelessness Of Cashmere

I’m pretty sure all of us have a classic cashmere piece in our wardrobes. Whether a simple patterned scarf, that go-to sweater, a classic coat, or a luxurious pair of socks, we’ve all been grateful at one point or another for the warmth and comfort that cashmere provides. Before we complain about the price of cashmere, let’s learn a bit more about it first. What is cashmere? I hear you all ask. Well, cashmere is in fact rare fibers found in the undercoat of wool from a cashmere goat. This wool keeps the animal warm during extremely low temperatures and, according to this site all about cashmere, it can take up to four years for one goat to grow enough wool for a sweater. This may put the price of cashmere goods in perspective. The History of Cashmere Another factor adding to the value of…

Let’s Talk About The 2016 Victoria Secret Show!

For instance, what did you do last night as the most beautiful women on earth, aka the Victoria Secret Angles rocked the runway? Moi, par example (not that y’all care, which I don’t blame you for) I sat on the couch, pigged out on all the food in the world, and was a potato. Naaah. Actually for the first time in a long time, surprisingly I did good. I was at the gym, heavy workout and shit. But the part about the potato is true. Hey, you can’t have it all, can you. I’ve learned to accept that with time. I’ve also learned, with time, to indulge in the little and not so little pleasures of life (more guilty and fabulous than not, mostly involving food and liquor and what comes with the territory of the latter especially). Believe it or not one of these…

4 Velvet Items To Wear This Season

Can we all take a looooong pause and think about this, the Velvet situation? Now… ya’ll might be fooled into thinking it’s a new fashion gimmick, but it’s not, in fact it’s quite ancient and had a slight comeback last year, but didn’t really stick. Then something happened (celebs endorsements, designers collections, retail chains, velvet affairs) and VELVET outfits suddenlty became the IT thing of 2017, on the back of every posh or just sartorially conscious and hungry girl in town. The choice of words is not by accident. I have a very love-and-hate relationship with trends and those people (including moi) who do them. Like I’ll love the desperation of nailing a trend one day, but then on other occasions I’m rolling my eyes with the speed of light at the lack of imagination we display when choosing to wear a certain trend. I…

Gift Ideas: Fashion & Model RC Boats

The use of radio controlled vehicles has been something that has been around for a long time. You likely had different cars, airplanes or boats as a child and loved the opportunity to take your vehicle outdoors and see what it could do. Now that you have gotten older, that passion is still part of you and it may even be something that you want to share with your own children at some point. While purchasing an RC sailboat or RC yacht can offer you a great opportunity to get your boat out immediately on the water, you might want to consider looking at some of the RC model boats that are available today instead of getting something that is ready-made. Save Money with a Model When you purchase a model RC kit for the boat that you are interested in, you are going to…

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…
