Bags For The Summer


With the spring and summer seasons fast approaching there are many activities which are going to become available due to the higher temperatures, the end of school and university terms. Activities such as music festivals, summer holidays, camping and getting ready to move out to University or abroad travelling are becoming part of life for students and young adults. All of these activities require travelling, organisation and packing.

To help with these summer activities you are going to need a bag to carry your belongings. There are many different types of bags you can have to help create a more enjoyable experience during your summer. You can get a rucksack, a satchel, a messenger bag, laptop bag, holdall, tote bag, drawstring bags as well as handmade recycled vintage bags. Choosing the type of bag for the activity can be tricky, with all types of bags having their benefits, as well as drawbacks.

For music festivals it would probably be best to use a rucksack, satchel or holdall to carry your belongings to the festival, as well as carrying things around the festival such as mobile phones, cameras and your wallet. If you wanted to look stylish at a festival, you could also buy a handmade recycled vintage bag, allowing you to fit in with the crowd, as well as being individualistic. Buying these sorts of bags allows you to put across your personality through a bag, whilst also being green and environmentally friendly.

Designer Fashions For Spring 2012

It always seems like we have to start looking ahead to designer fashions so early in the year. Despite it being winter, the spring 2012 fashion trends have already hit the runaway. What can we expect this spring? A definite 180 from last year. 2011, for women, was all about borrowing from their male counterpart's wardrobe. Boyfriend jeans, military inspired gear, and grungy clothing were all the rage. I guess women were tired of dressing more like men than women. Thankfully, the designer fashions this year will be a return to femininity.

Spring fashions are inspired by florals and the tropics -expect a lot of pastels, from baby pink to light blue and pale yellow. You can see the inspiration in dresses, a pair of pants, and skirts. The colors can range from very pale pastels to shocking neon. On the runway we saw a lot of sequins, silks, and cottons.

However, fashion accessories will be kept to a minimum, but will still be in line with accentuating the feminine. Earrings have always been a staple of the feminine, so expect that to be the one accessory every women will need to have. In terms of designer shoes for women, say goodbye to aggressive combat boots and thick-soled wedges. Instead, enjoy classic pumps and anything delicate.

What Women Want From Their Watches

If you are set the task of finding a new watch for a woman, whether she is your friend, relative or wife, there are a few things that you may want to know first before you make your decision.

There are some typical things which are important considerations for anyone choosing a watch for a woman, whether you want to buy Sekonda watches, L.E.D. watches or any other brand. So take a look at the following tips and see whether they can help you to make your decision.

The Importance of Elegance

Unless you are looking for Rotary Divers watches or a sporty model like Adidas watches, you may want to remember that elegance is often a highly sought-after quality in ladies' watches.

It is not hard to see which watches are the most elegant, but if you are in doubt then ask the sales assistant or do some research to find out what qualities you should be looking for so that the receiver of the watch will be able to wear it to the best parties and events and feel fantastic doing so.

Choose Ladies' Shoes Like a Fashionista

Girl, we know all about it. You are not the only shoe addict out there. Women's shoes are not only all about comfort, ease and what's on top of the pile. Oh no! We want high fashion, beautifully designed, covetable shoes. Even though shoes serve a purpose, they must look good doing it right? We think so too.

Invest in your Feet

Forget what your man says. Money spent on a great looking, comfortable shoe is money well spent. And no, heels are not silly. They are magnificent!

Let's talk platfroms. Thank you shoe gods! A fashionable heel with a base thick enough to withstand the whole day on your feet? Yes please. There are so many fab styles out there that you won't look like a plain jane.

Summer Lovin'

Sandals. Summer. Pedicures. Beach. Get the picture? The sun is out and your feet want to play. There is no better hot day shoe like a flat sandal. Ankle straps, gladiator styles, thongs, ribbon lace ups, embellsihed. The choices are endless. Your feet want to breath and feel the fresh summer air, sandals go with all your looks for this season and can easily be worn for a night out too with your LBD.

Fashion Tips: The Right Belt For Your Body

Diamonds may be the girl's best friend, but the belt is her hero.

The belt, in the past, has been looked upon as a way to keep your bottoms up, right where they belong, making sure that you do not humiliate yourself with falling garments.

Still, great designer fashion lines like Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, and Stella McCartney have found the hidden power of the belt. They have transformed it as more of an accessory now, rather than a need. In fact, they have transformed the belt as the best arsenal of the lady to create that coveted hourglass figure by cinching the waist line, in no time.

But the question remains, what kind of belt best suits the various body types out there? Here are some type of belts and what kind of body type they serve the best.


The skinny belt is not wider than half an inch. They come in various colors and are usually used to have a more polished look.

Do wear this if you have a flat stomach. I am talking about a stomach area that is not naturally folding when you stand up. So you don't necessarily need to have abs to be in this category.

Style on a Budget

While most of us would love to have Carrie Bradshaw's walk-in wardrobe, the reality is not everyone has access to an unlimited wad of cash, nor the wardrobe space. With the world of fashion constantly changing, most just wouldn't know where to begin. And so, more often than not, our best option is to make the most of our current wardrobe until we are ready for some serious retail therapy. Even with life's conflicting priorities and personal responsibilities, our ultimate wardrobe may still be out of reach.

Our natural instinct is to sometimes just 'shop' to fill the gap in our wardrobe. Whether you shop at Target or have a taste for haute couture, anyone can look stylish on a budget. And let's be frank, not everyone can afford the luxe tag price every season.

So in the interim, here are some tips to make the most of creating a winning wardrobe without busting the bank and giving your plastic card a workout.

• Shop from your closet: Re-visit old favourites or something you haven't worn or paid much attention to in a while. Try them on and mix it with your new favourites, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
