From New York to Paris currently, the collections displayed this season have been of exceptional quality. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so inspired by the catwalks, […]

Are Girls born ‘Bitchy’?

This is an old post by me on another blog site. This topic seemed to cause some controversy. I am curious to know what people have to say.

A male friend of mine said he’s glad to be a boy because  guys are ‘mostly’ challenged by their peers for foolish behaviour BUT girls get support for whatever they do, be it good or bad, smart or stupid. Many other guys concurred and supported this point saying “girls thrive in their stupity or ‘bitchyness’ “.

I am female and won’t disagree completely with some of the perceptions guys have about girls because they speak from one or two actions they’ve experienced or watched on tv. But the fact that there are all these words abt females misbehaving and almost no words to describe the guy who began this whole mess gets me so upset. The only word used on a stupid guy is ‘jerk’. Seriously?

When a girl gets pregnant have u forgotten who is blamed? The freaking girl, like she jumped on herself and implanted the sperm. Even…

Keeping Up With the High Street to Online Store Trend

Xpression

It’s clear that online marketing is influencing offline purchasing behaviour more than ever. Have you noticed how many online fashion stores there are? That’s no coincidence. E-commerce will continue to expand in this digital age, so it is essential for high street stores to keep up with this trend by developing and/or enhancing their online presence, because a high percentage of consumers who buy in-store have conducted online research prior to purchase.

When shopping online there are no crowds or queues. Shopping can be 24 hours a day from the comfort of the home. It is no secret that one of the main problems with online shopping is size inconsistency or the fear of dissatisfaction from the product. To overcome this in the future will require a universal sizing chart or measure items based on actual body measurements before customers can completely consider shopping online.

So don’t be put off…

Flatter Your Body Not Faulter

Xpression

In a world of ever-changing trends, knowing what to wear can be a challenge. We all come in different shapes, fashion is all about dressing your body; how do we make sure we are wearing outfits that will flatter our unique body type? Getting dressed is a whole lot easier when you know what pieces work best for your shape. The key is to know your proportions and use fashion to accentuate your best features; and hide everything else!

First step is to know what type of body you have. There are different categories of classifying the shape of a woman, but the most common are; Apple, Rectangular, Pear, Hourglass and Wedge.

The Apple Shape

If you have this body type then you want to elongate your midsection and create the illusion of a smaller waist. You should also emphasize your legs, draw attention away from your waist and shoulders/arms…

Is home where the heart it?

Noreen Bayne

These past few days have been a challenge. It started with something vaguely resembling homesickness (I left my first home at 17 and never looked back). I left my old life behind to be happy, to be at peace, to define myself. Yet I woke up one morning feeling completely lost, with one question nagging at the bottom of my mind, where is home? For two days, I didn’t move, just stayed in my box and did nothing. On day three, I was sick of myself. How did someone who had the guts to give it all up suddenly surrender to an unknown force? So I left my apartment and ventured out to explore my new neighborhood.

When we hear of Paris, we hear about the City of Light and Love. In books and movies, it’s this magical place full of love, music, art, fashion, beauty and all the things…
