New trends in the world of perfumeries [Guest Post]

Perfume fashion, just like any other fashion has its trends and seasonal preferences. There are a lot of perfumes that don’t stay long in production; they are trendy just for one season and get forgotten easily. At the same time, some of the scents are timeless and will always be in fashion. For example, women all over the world still chose Chanel No 5.

This year’s fashionable scents, such as gold amber, orchid, pear and tomato leaf will most likely remain poplar in the next season. At the same time perfume fashion does not only depend on the trendy scents, it gets affected by various aspects of the industry. Here is the list of the hottest perfume trends for the upcoming year.

Celebrity Fever

A lot of celebrities jump on the perfume bandwagon in their pursuit of more money and fame. Some celebrity perfumes are successful, while majority of them are disastrous. In the past years celebrities like Justin Bieber, JLo, Madonna and even Lady Gaga were able to create and present their perfume sensations. Even though Katy Perry, Snooki and Paris Hilton failed to present a balanced scent, the fashion on celebrity perfumes is not going anywhere. People will keep buying it regardless of the fact that these perfumes often smell like cupcakes.

Chain Store Perfumes

If you buy a lot of clothes from the same store and you genuinely adore one lingerie chain then you most likely will buy the perfume offered by the same chain. For example, Victoria Secret does not only sell sexy lingerie, it sells an image of a sexy woman. Underwear, bikinis and perfumes will make the image complete. Victoria Secret’s seductive smells are supposed to make women feel special.
Even though brands like Max Mara or Zara don’t specialize on beauty products, they still sell perfumes to complete the chosen outfit.

Packaging and presentation

A good presentation of a perfume is half the battle already. Companies try hard to create new bottles and designs for their products. Justin Bieber’s Someday comes in a bottle with a pink flower. It also has a Biebericious pendant attached to it. Justin’s fans would do anything to become closer to the star and the pendant is making his perfume even more attractive.
Kenzo is known for extravagant, yet very stylish advertising campaigns. Perfumes by Kenzo are not only elegant and fresh; they are also bottled in a way that attracts a lot of attention.

             Organic fashion

Most of the fragrances you see are made from chemicals and have little to do with actual flower oils and scents. Some people might even have allergic reactions to them. Even though chemical free perfumes are still new on the market, this niche has a great potential. A lot of people prefer living an organic lifestyle; they buy green food and washing powder, clothes and beauty products. ‘Green’ perfume is a part of this lifestyle too. Organic perfumes contain all-natural ingredients and even have therapeutic effect. They are good for you and good for the nature!

Wristbands: HOw Wristbands Have Been Used to Create Awarenessss | Charity

Wristbands -A Way To Make An Impact

Most of us have seen people who wear special cause wristbands at some point in our lives, and many of us even have some of our own that we wear on occasion as a way to show our support for a cause that we deeply believe in. However, what some people do not realize is the huge impact that these different wristbands can have on the cause that they look to serve. However, the truth is that these bands have been used for years as a way of raising money, awareness, popularity and support for various different organizations and important causes, making a huge difference in the world for such a small, rubber bracelet.

Perhaps the first instance of these wristbands that a lot of people seem to recall the most is that of the popular "Livestrong" bracelets that made it big several years back. These were simple yellow bracelets that were used to support cancer research through the Lance Armstrong Foundation. This foundation was begun by a world famous athlete and biker who was diagnosed with testicular cancer many years ago. And while the bracelets were typically only a dollar to buy, it seemed as though just about everyone had at least one of these. Not only did they become a fashion statement, but they raised a significant amount of money for cancer research and lead to the popularity of these wristbands as a whole as a way of supporting an important cause.

Perhaps the next big thing that we saw with wristbands were the pink Breast Cancer Awareness ones, many of which are still in circulation and still being sold today. These were started by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which was established decades ago in an attempt to begin funding research on breast cancer. Once the small, pink wristband bracelets, imprinted with the breast cancer ribbon, were sold on the market, it seemed as though just about everyone wanted one. As a result, the foundation ended up raising a significant amount of money for research and many advancements in cancer research were made, thanks to these wristbands.

Overall, wristbands have been a great way to show support for a cause while donating money to it at the same time. In fact, there are now even companies that will custom print these wristbands for just about anyone, so that anyone can have them made with their own message on them as a way of promotion something that is special or means a lot to them. These have been used as fundraising for schools throughout the country and as a way to spread the word about different causes that people believe to be important as well.

As has been seen over the past decade or so, it does not take something extravagant to get the word out about a cause that is important. In fact, these wristbands are proof that any cause can gain steam with the right amount of supporters and just a little bit of effort put into it.

Winter Boots For 2012

With your sexy halloween costumes buried deep down in your closets, now is the time to welcome the winters in style. There’s no footwear that helps you make a better sex appeal than a nice pair of boots.
Winter Boots continue to remain the favorites for women all over the world because they provide protection from the cruel winters and are chic, at the same time. There are many types of boots you can choose from –

1. Boots with Fur, Faux Fur and Shearling – Winter boots with faux fur and a trim of shearling are the trend of the season. Apart from the usual appearance of fur in sporty and practical styles, it is seen to be making an appearance everywhere, be it casual, heeled or dressier occasions. Fashion boots are seen to be getting a lot of fluffy add-ons and are a must buy this season.

2. Quilted and Sporty Boots – Quilted boots have made a strong comeback and are hitting stores all over. These not only do their traditional job of protecting you from cold but also give you bonus points for being fashionable but comfortable. Tuck your slim fitted jeans inside these boots and you have a winner look.

3. Boots With Heels – Heeled boots are known for their suave and sexy look. They are also preferred over stilettos because they are much more comfortable for walking. This season, the market is seen getting flooded with boots with wedged heels. You can go for mid or short heels as they go well with skirts. Tall boots with heels are good for the fun outings with friends.

4. Ankle Boots – Ankle boots add a lot of funk to any outfit, especially dresses and skirts. These were traditionally worn under trousers but now seem to be featuring with everything but trousers. It is a worthy addition to your shoe collections.
5. Thigh High Boots – These reach up to the thighs, as the name suggests. They are usually paired with mini dresses and tunics but can be used with other outfits as well. If you are feeling a little casual, wear an oversized sweater with some contrasting tights and get these boots on. It will give you a casual yet stylish look.

6. Cowboy Boots – Wear this on a not so cold winter day with a nice flowing skirt and top. Or you can pair it up with washed denims and a t-shirt. They also look good with cocktail dresses but remember to accessorize with a lot of funky jewellery. They are very comfortable to wear and look good with almost everything.

Other common types of boots include Wellington boots and knee length boots. Snow boots are also trending a lot this season. Remember to accessorize well and keep your outfit in mind while choosing boots. Boots add zing to your clothes and you can never own enough of them.

Hot Grecian Style Cocktail Dresses

You don’t have to be Greek to pull off the hottest new trend - Grecian style cocktail dresses! Party season is coming up and whether you want to look hot for your Christmas work party or dress to impress for the New Year’s Eve countdown a Grecian style party frock will have the men clamouring to your side!

The new trend is not defined in a specific way but Grecian style party frocks use excess material for a flattering draping effect. It’s not all white and gold however there is a wide range of styles from full on glamour floor length numbers to cute mini dresses to show of those Grecian pins. I personally love the one shoulder styles, for a flash of flesh that oozes sex appeal. As well as different cuts and lengths there are also loads of different fabrics and colours to choose from.

If you want to stand out from the rest you could chooses a festive red colour or go for a glittery glam look with a sprinkling of sequins.

This style of dress is flattering for women of all shapes and sizes it’s not just models that can pull it off.

The draping effect can hide that bit of tummy you don’t like to have exposed and can also add curves to boyish figures so you can feel feminine and sexy no matter what your dress size is. The celebs have been rocking this look since all the way back in 2009 when Cameron Diaz was seen on the red carpet wearing a stunning white dress for her film premiere. Celebs from Megan Fox to The Duchess of Cambridge herself have rocked the Grecian cocktail dress so make sure you get in the action this year too! Accessories should be kept at a minimum to really show off the dress but make sure you get a nice pair of heels to really complete the look.

An Amazing Shop Window Jewellery Stand

An Amazing Shop Window Jewellery Stand

I found an amazing concept 3D render this afternoon whilst surfing online. I have lost the site in my history otherwise I would have credited the photo. But if anyone knows whose it is please get in contact so I can give credit where credit is due.

I was thinking that this would make a really good shop window display piece for pandora jewels, wrist bands and chunky urban style rings. I wouldn't imagine it in a wedding shop or anything romantically interwoven. This wouldn't display emotional jewellery...this would display tech chunk metal bars and sky blue clear gems amidst stressed steel/titanium/platinum jewellery sets comprising all the urban attitude that gets exuded in goth-mo circles. LoVe iT-a!

Betsey Johnson 2012 Spring Collection

Betsey Johnson 2012 Spring Collection

Betsey Johnson’s 2012 Spring/Summer Collection is one of her most sexual takes on clothes. This is coming of her release of her new Betsey Johnson Pink Patch line that she debuted for Fall 2011.

Always a powerful woman, she says her desire for this season’s line was to allow women to show “an attitude of pride and confidence” in their body.

Her clothes this season, at least on the runway, are very sheer and can at times resemble lingerie with copious amounts of lacing and skin tight clothing. But her sweet plus sexy appeal is still present in her floral dresses and eccentric accessories.

5 Strangest Celebrity Outfits of 2011

5 Strangest Celebrity Outfits of 2011

Every year, there are a handful of celebrities that wear outrageous outfits to break away from the ordinary. While fashionistas all over the world turn to celebrities to get an idea of the latest fashion trends, there are some outfits that you want to stay clear of. In 2011, celebrities such as Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga became known not only for their music, but also for their bizarre wardrobe. Here are the five strangest outfits we saw worn by celebrities in 2011:


1: Nicki Minaj at the Video Music Awards

While Nicki Minaj is known for her bizarre outfits, we are still baffled over what she was thinking when she put this on. Is it a dress or did she drench herself in glue and run through a toy store? 

Our team unanimously voted this outfit as the strangest one worn in 2011! What will she think of next?

2: Lady Gaga at the Grammys

Traditionally, one walks into a show and stops along the red carpet to talk photos... 

...That is, unless you are Lady Gaga being carried into the Grammys. 
While her outfit was certainly unique and different, I don’t think we’ve ever seen anyone carried by four men into the Grammys in a giant egg!

3: Katy Perry at the Grammys

While Lady Gaga had a rather untraditional entrance to the 2011 Grammys, Katy Perry also made some head turns with her angel outfit. 

At first glance, we were a little confused at what she was wearing, until we noticed the wings on her back. Although she certainly looked as beautiful as an angel, we wonder how many people would refer to her as one.  

4: Nicki Minaj at the American Music Awards


We’ve seen Nicki wear stranger outfits this year, but have you ever seen anyone wear heels so high that they can barely walk? After winning the award for best hip hop video with Super Bass, Nicki needed help walking to the podium to accept her award. It took her over a minute to walk across stage and she nearly fell several times along the way. Strange and outrageous outfits are ok; just make sure you can get around in them!

5: Lady Gaga at the Video Music Awards

Just when you thought Lady Gaga couldn’t possibly come up with an outfit stranger than the meat one she wore last year, she has outdone herself again! Dressing as her male alter ego, you can barely recognize Gaga and many have mistaken her to actually be a man. What crazy outfit do you think she’ll come up with for the 2012 VMAs?

Top hairstyle trends to look out for in 2012

Hairstyle trends are constantly changing and if you want to keep up with the latest and hottest look you will need to know what styles you should be fashioning and how to make them work so you will look and feel amazing.

Women’s hairstyle trends for 2012


What woman doesn’t look good with waves? Waves are back and they going to be in for 2012. The wavy style is a look that never dies and is always making a comeback to fashion. It is such a natural and relaxed style you can pull it off with any look. Don’t expect it to be confined to the beach though, city women will also be working this look by prepping it up with a little gloss and finish to transform it from beach to smart.

Wet Look

The wet look hasn’t died yet. It was in for 2011 and its trend will continue through to 2012, so if you haven’t clocked on to it yet, now is the time. This sleek and heavy style creates a very sophisticated and precise look. Just think shine and perfection and you will be on the right tracks.

Top Knots

Wearing your hair high on the head is the all new trend for 2012 and it will be hitting us hard. Top knots or buns directly placed on your crown are the way forward. Just take your hair, scrape it up high and do not worry if the end result is slightly messy or dishevelled as this is what gives it that super sexy edge.
Men’s hairstyle trends for 2012


Everyone loves it when men look a little rough and rugged around the edges and this style definitely promotes that look. If you have long or medium length hair then this could be the style for you, add a little product, scruff it all up and off you go. This look is especially advantageous for wavy or curly hair.

Classic Part

The classic part is one of elegance and sophistication. It is a style that can add value too, and enhance almost any look. This is one style to keep an eye on as it is set to be the main trend for 2012.

Slick Back

The slick back is one style that will never go out of fashion. It makes any outfit look casual whilst still remaining fashionable at the same time.
