A white shirt or polo shirt goes well with any bottom, whether it’s pants, skirt, and shorts so it should always be present in any closet. A black blazer is another must-have since it’s feminine and can be paired with just about anything. Flared jeans suit most body types so it definitely should be included in your fashion must-haves.

Bathroom Upgrades For Less

Decorating the rooms of your house is easy if you have a clear image of the overall look that you want your house to have. If you’re artistic and creative enough, doing this will be easy otherwise it will be challenging. Getting tips from magazines and the internet is useful but if you have the resources to pay professionals, then that’s a better option. Among all the rooms in a house, the bathroom is usually neglected. This shouldn’t be the case and therefore should be given equal attention by decorating it in such a way that it will look cozy and warm. An unkempt and cluttered bathroom can be upgraded and turned into a beautiful one through a few, simple things. For one, you can turn an unused nightstand into storage for small towels, toiletries, makeup, and hair tools and also make a vintage inspired towel rack where you can hang towels.

A kitchen and bathroom retile is another easy upgrade. A freshly tiled floor can brighten your bathroom as well as your mood and wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket if you do the job yourself. A stylish vintage dresser vanity complete with modern plumbing will definitely look good in your bathroom. If you have a bathtub that lacks wide ledges, hang a multilevel fruit basket for additional storage and space. If you want to have a peace-inducing bathroom, put a wall paper or paint the walls with a calming color like sky blue or baby pink. There should also be scented candles and flowers around the bathroom.

Men are known for not being fussy when it comes to clothes but that doesn’t mean that they don’t want to look good. Most are practical, however, and would want to shop for clothes without breaking the bank. One way is to buy clothes that’re timeless instead of trendy ones so that you’ll be able to use them for a long time. You should also only buy stuff that you need and find the most favorable items on sale and always go for quality over quantity. Another tip is to wait for your favorite stores’ clearance sale. Get on the mailing list of your favorite stores to get announcements for sales and clearance days. You can also use coupons where you can get as much as 60% discount.

Shopping out of season is another way to save money. Buy sweaters, jackets, scarfs, tracksuits, gloves and other apparel for winter while it’s still summer. Find your nearest outlet store or consignment shop where you can find clothes that’re barely worn. These stores sometimes have designer brands that the owner doesn’t want to wear anymore but would like to get some money for. You can also shop at online stores where you’ll surely find clothing for less. However, make sure that the store has a return and/or exchange policy. Since you won’t be able to try on the clothes, there’s a possibility that it won’t fit so the return policy will ease your mind a little.

Tips for Buying Arts and Crafts Supplies Online

 photo cute-diy-crafts-tumblr-e665gqtg_zps6rqsqvhe.jpg

If you love working on paper crafting projects, you are going to need a constant supply of paper crafting materials. Papers, pens, stencils, glue, glitter, markers, stickers and other supplies – they get whisked into your whirlwind of creativity and used up as you create beautiful works of art. So, the more you create and get your hands dirty the more crafting supplies you will need to buy. What is the best way to keep your supplies stocked up so that you don’t have to interrupt your creative flow?

One of the best ways is to buy art and crafts supplies online. You don’t have the hassle of driving to the store, finding a parking spot, making your way through the crowded shop, standing in line at the checkout and carrying it all home. It is so much easier to be able to choose the items that you want with a click of a button, order them online and have them delivered to your door.

You will be amazed at the range of different crafting supplies that you can find online. Whether you are into scrapbooking or printmaking or paper sculpture or any other type of paper craft – you will find everything you need available from the internet. Of course, before you start buying arts and crafts supplies online and ordering a huge shipment of papers, glitter, glue and other fun things to your door – there are a few things that you should know.

Tips for Online Arts and Crafts Supply Shopping

Here are some helpful tips for shopping for arts and crafts supplies online.

  • Make sure that you understand the sizes of what you are ordering. You don’t want to order a container of 4mm beads without knowing how small they are. You might want to look at them in a store first before you start ordering them online, because it’s hard to tell the size of something from a photograph.
  • Sometimes you can save money on crafting supplies by buying in bulk. If you have a friend who is also into arts and crafts, you could split the cost of a large ream of paper or a big roll of ribbon rather than paying more to each buy the individual size.
  • Ask other artists where they buy their arts and crafts supplies and you might get some great recommendations of good websites to shop at.
  • When it comes to choosing a website to buy from, make sure that they have a secure payment system. Also, read some online reviews by others who have purchased there before to see if they had a positive customer service experience.
  • There are some things that you can save money on by buying the cheapest, such as glue, pom poms, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, sequins and ribbon. However there are some things, such as water colour paints and coloured pencils that are worth spending extra money on because the cheap versions don’t look as good.
  • You don’t have to go for the most expensive materials if you are just getting into paper crafting. You can get started with the basic materials and if you start to get really serious about it, you can invest in more expensive supplies.
  • If you find a good website for buying arts and crafts supplies online, see if they have a loyalty program or a deal on free shipping if you order over a specific amount. Sometimes it pays to do all of your shopping in one place.
  • The tools that you use for creating your papercraft projects are also important. For example, scissors should be easy to hold and very sharp so that cutting is effective. Don’t waste your money on cheap tools, as they will not be very effective, they will cause you frustration and you will end up giving up and buying better tools later on.

These are just a few helpful tips to keep in mind when it comes to buying arts and crafts supplies online. Using the internet to buy your crafts is so much more convenient than shopping in the store and with all the time you save, you will have much more time to work on your crafting projects!

Summer Gift Ideas For Your Special Someone

 photo landscape-1466710981-couple_zpssmbqds6g.jpg

Finding the perfect gift for the special man in your life is quite challenging at times because the choices for men are more limited compared to women. But you don’t have to despair. Think of your boyfriend/husband’s personality and his interests and whether he would want something romantic or something unique. It should also fit your budget. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Remember, it’s the thought that counts.

If his birthday/special day happens during summer, there’re a couple of gifts that you can give to complement the season. Since it’s hot, comfortable men’s T-shirts are the usual tops. You can get him statement shirts or perhaps colorful shirts that will surely brighten up his day. There’re also casual shorts that he can wear both in the beach and when strolling at the mall. If he needs some fresh kicks, there’re fashionable sneakers that’re preppy and cool and would look great with jeans or white summer pants. You can also give him sandals or colorful flip flops. Since it’s hot, he definitely shouldn’t leave home without sunglasses. You can give him aviator sunnies or wayfarers, something that would go well with the shape of his face.

Love my new Tory Burch Sandals

 photo 13232870_1250162008341821_652320670749226719_n_zpszf5o77u2.jpg

I admit, I really cant contain the happiness inside me as I received these lovely gifts from my brother this morning. Yes! they just were a present given my beloved brother who used to work from the brand, Actually he is a brand ambassador hence he’s getting these lovies for free or in exchange for review which I truly appreciate because he doesn’t have anyone in mind to give out these hence it ended up having them on my hands.. ahha

Tory Burch is my top brand when it comes to my fashion and as you were my follower on my other site you might probably sees some of me wearing this brand more often where for the accessories or for the full outfit because the brand really has these pieces that really speaks to my style and at the same time they were too comfortable wearing their each pieces, though pricing are quite expensive to have but I must say it does worth to have as it lasted in some good years unlike those un-brands finds where just might last for at least some months, though.

The Stars Who Looked Utterly Cool with Ray-Bans On

 photo F360B63C-4359-4E65-B0AF-29C54993A037_zpszmijunr6.jpg

Ray-Bans have been around for a number of decades. In that time they have been worn by many of the world’s most high profile stars.

From movie stars to singers and even Presidents, the appeal of these sunglasses has won over many admirers over the years.

James Dean

One of the very first stars to look great with Ray-Bans on was also one of the first. James Dean became an icon when he appeared in Rebel Without a Cause wearing Ray-Ban Wayfarers.

This powerful endorsement of the brand is credited as being one of the reasons why it became so sought after in the early days. Dean looked amazing with his Ray-Bans on and suddenly everyone else wanted to copy his style and his attitude.

 photo 20141217_110737_zps6v1xrfqq.jpg

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is another huge star who decided that wearing Ray-Ban Sunglasses was an incredibly cool thing to do. In fact, you may have seen her image used in the 75th anniversary celebrations of this world famous brand.

Her use of these glasses helped their appeal to reach out to more people, as she was one of the world’s most photographed people at the time. If James Dean added a coolness factor to Ray-Bans then Marilyn made them glamorous and sexy when she put them on.

Bob Dylan

Dylan helped to add mystique and edginess to the sunglasses brands when he put them on.
The singer songwriter went through a phase in which he was rarely seen in public without his tinted glasses on.

They provided the perfect counterpoint to his tousled mop of hair and he looked every inch the mysterious, bohemian poet with them on.

John F.Kennedy

Even US Presidents wanted in on the act of looking cool with Ray-Ban sunglasses on. In the case of JFK, he would often put on a pair of Wayfarers when he was out relaxing at the weekend.

This helped to add to his youthful, film star look, of course. Few political leaders have looked as good as JFK did with sunglasses on.

John Lennon

Another of the world’s biggest stars to have worn Ray-Ban glasses with style was John Lennon.  The ex-Beatle apparently had very bad eyesight and often chose to wear Ray-Ban glasses with prescription lenses to stay looking cool while being able to see clearly at the same time.

Lennon definitely helped add a degree of hipness and modernity to the brand at a time when it needed to update its image and face up to modern rivals and changing tastes.

John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd

Perhaps the most amazing use of sunglasses in the history of cinema came in the Blues Brothers. John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and the rest were almost unbearably cool when they slipped on their Ray-Bans.

The music is this weird yet massively successful movie was memorable but many people remember the dudes with the suits and the shades even more than the tunes. The impact of their style is still remembered too and probably still plays a part in helping people to decide that the time is right to slip on some sunglasses.

Tom Cruise

If you can remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business then there is a fair chance that it is with a spectacular pair of Ray-Bans perched on his nose. This ushered in a new era for the sunglass maker, as it used product placement in movies to boost its image.

Cruise then made an even bigger impression with his Ray-Bans on Top Gun. This movie was an especially good place for the manufacturer to show off their wares, as the original use of Ray-Bans was for use by pilots who needed their eyes protected from the sun at high altitudes. Later on, he would wear them in his Mission Impossible movies as well.

Madonna

The movie Desperately Seeking Susan might not have been a huge success, but it let us see how good Madonna looked wearing a pair of stylish Ray-Bans. The singer’s attempt at becoming an actress didn’t work out but her style in the movie worked wonders for the sunglasses brand.

Madonna also took to wearing the shades when she was off-screen as well. In fact, they were soon to become a big part of her image and something that millions of women all round the world wanted to copy.

The Reservoir Dogs Characters

Kitting out the entire group of criminals in Reservoir Dogs with Ray-Bans was a masterstroke from Quentin Tarantino. The director made a massive impact with this film and the style of the actors had a lot to do with it.

Tarantino was even awarded a Ray-Ban Visionary Award for the style with which he pulled off this movie.
