Look Like You’ve Just Stepped Out Of A Fashion Mag With These Style Secrets

Chandran RF15 Fashion Look Like Youve Just Stepped Out Of A Fashion Mag With These Style Secrets
Do you love fashion? Lookng for ways to emphasize your taste? From New York to Paris, anyone can achieve a super chic look when they pay attention to certain details. Here are some incredible style secrets that will make you look and feel like a fashion queen:

Quality over quantity

Buying a whole wardrobe of Roberto Cavalli clothing isn’t affordable for most of us. However, when you are on a budget, stick to the mantra of quality over quantity as much as possible. It is far better to have a smaller wardrobe full of beautifully made and well-designed items that fit you perfectly, rather lots of clothing that is cheap and poor quality.

Look after your clothing

It follows from the point above that you should take great care of your garments. Well-pressed clothing will help you to achieve that chic look. Follow instructions for washing items to a T and always deal with stains, damage and other flaws immediately to avoid them getting any worse. Tailoring clothes without experience and skill can end in disaster, so always pay for professional services if you are at all unsure.

Copy your style heroes

If you lack fashion inspiration look to your style heroes for help. Your icons can be anyone from your Gaby Espino to your Mum. Don’t be afraid to borrow fashion and beauty styles from them. But do try to adapt them to suit your individual style and add touches of your personality where you can.

Dress for you

Do not have to be skinny to look chic. It’s all about getting to know your body shape and choosing clothes that flatter you. If you are small in height and curvy in shape, you are unlikely to suit long, straight styles. However, your body will look fantastic in open necklines and nipped waists. Take the time to get to know your body shape and what you feel comfortable in. You know what they say, if you feel great, you look great.

Stand up straight

Never underestimate what good posture can do for your overall look (and health). Slouching and hunched shoulders make you look and feel uncomfortable. Look at catwalk models. They always have impeccable posture. This makes them look strong and confident and means the beautiful clothes they are wearing hang on them perfectly. And this applies to you. There is no point spending lots of time creating chic ensembles if you are just going to slouch in them. It can be difficult to break posture habits, but try your best to remind yourself to tuck in your tummy, throw your shoulders back, and lift your head high.

Be creative

Fashion is all about pushing boundaries and trying something new, so don’t be afraid to experiment with your ensembles. Mixing colors, patterns and textures can lead to much more interesting outfit. Looking at fashion blogs, websites and magazine will help to get your creative juices flowing.

Hot and Happening Looks from Hard Candy

All Glossed Up 632x632 Hot and Happening Looks from Hard Candy

It’s hard to not fall in love with Hard Candy’s newest line of fun products, which have just been released in time for spring.

Among the newest merchandise are a few stand-out items, including a number of brand new shimmering shades of the brand’s iconic nail polish that first propelled Hard Candy into stardom. A brand new luminizer, high-shine lip gloss crayons and their Poppin Pigments multipurpose glitters are also joining the party.

Doesn’t the word crayon just get your artistic gears turning? The lip crayons stain the lips, producing deep lipstick-like color but go on more like a gloss. Best of all Hard Candy claims it won’t dry out your lips, plus it contains a lip conditioner. With excellent true-to-life color, it’s super easy to apply and never requires sharpening.

Hard Candy Nails 632x632 Hot and Happening Looks from Hard Candy

The company has also reinvested in its classic nail polish line, which was the first product launched by Hard Candy back in 1995. Polish lovers will find 8 new shades of edgy nail polishes, which come in a series of fresh in-style colors. Among the collection are amusing features like unique and increasingly popular pop art lacquers. Intensely fun, totally non-traditional, completely affordable and 3-free: sounds like a win-win-win-win.

Sheer Glow Hard Candy 632x632 Hot and Happening Looks from Hard Candy

Though we’re all looking for a boost of colour in February, it’s the luminizer, infused with real 24 carat gold, that’s going to grab attention. Soon beach weather will be upon us and beach weather means the beach look will be back. The Glow All The Way Sheer Glow luminizer is one of Hard Candy’s newest tools to replicate that dewy sun-kissed look – wait, don’t all people come in from the pool looking this stunning?

For the face or the body, it’s a light-weight product with gradual self tanner and is available in five shades, including the boldly named Glamazon Bronze (not for the faint of heart) and the more neutral In the Buff.

Luxury Bedrooms on a Budget

Screen Shot 2015 02 24 at 10.08.21 AM 631x632 Luxury Bedrooms on a Budget
Beautiful, luxury bedrooms may seem like a million miles away when your money situation isn’t at its best, but there are plenty of ways to achieve amazing, stylish décor on a budget. Here are 5 tips for turning your bedroom into a style haven.

1) DIY
Bringing out your own creativity can be a great way to decorate your bedroom. You don’t even have to be an artist! You can make your own masterpieces for free. Why not try collecting some shells the next time you’re by the sea? You can make a beautiful collage, especially if you’re going for a summer look in your bedroom. You can also use vegetable stamps to make art.

Beds look great when they’re covered in all sorts of blanket and cushions. Why not break out the needle and thread and make your own bed decorations? You can use old sheets and curtains for fabric, or you can visit charity shops and find some bargains.

2) Websites
There are some great websites for great quality bedroom essentials at reasonable prices. Bedstar offers a wide range of beds and accessories at prices that will definitely fit your budget. It’s also easier to find sales on the internet, so don’t be afraid to hunt around for some chic furniture to go with your bedroom’s new look.

3) Colours
Colours are exceptionally important when it comes to creating a certain atmosphere. Deep, warm colours like red and purple are great for bedrooms as they’re cosier. You don’t have to have a complex colour scheme. It’s easy to create a great looking room by combining any colour with neutral tones, such as black, white or browns. You can use Adobe Colour to make any colour scheme of your choice.

4) Storage
Instead of buying expensive wardrobes and dressers, there are much easier, cheaper ways to create storage space in your bedroom. Beds with drawers work great as they don’t take up any extra room. You can also turn old or cheap shelves and cabinets into stylish places to put your books and CDs with a bit of paint. Add pops of colour here and there to give some life to your bookshelves.

5) Lights
Like colours, lights also have an influence on the atmosphere of the room. Fairy lights are a great way of creating a cosy atmosphere, and cost a lot less on the electric too! They look especially pretty in the winter. Hang some on the wall, or wrap them around the bed frame.

Award Show Celebrations Made More Colorful and Fun with M&M’S!

MMs Cup 580x632 Award Show Celebrations Made More Colorful and Fun with M&M’S!
Guilty Pleasure: I crave peanut M&M’s in the middle of the night, get up and travel to the 24hour pharmacy to buy them and devour the bag. I’m one for all great things in moderation. One should always indulge without hossing out on too much decadence.This brings me to my very ‘valid point’ of the glorious Award Season: M&M’S has been personifying personality and pr by taking their own spin on-camera action. Cutting to the candor and allowing us to see what they are really about. Their cleverly animated commercials and fun humor present us with take-it, not leave it, candies that remind us of our chocolate loving palette.

“M&M’S® is commemorating the biggest night in Hollywood by debuting a commercial on national TV that shows M&M’S characters invading the movies.”

From crispy to milk chocolate, peanut to butter, simplifying our sweet tooth and cracking a smile.

“M&M’S Milk Chocolate: The classic M&M’S® Milk Chocolate candies have been one of the most loved chocolate treats in the world since 1941. The bite-sized pieces of chocolate in a colorful candy shell are instantly recognizable all over the globe.”

M&M’S are great for us fashion girls that want to stay ‘red carpet’ ready. Ultimately, you can have a few and still be svelte enough to skivvy into your favorite body-con number working your magic flat tummy pose. Here are a few tips for Red Carpet Readiness:

1) Good Posture

2) Put Weight on You Back Foot

3) Make Eye Contact with the Camera

4) Wear Body Shapers

5) Think “Happy Thoughts” 

The M&M’S commercial debut is reminiscent of ones we’ve seen before, with a fresh ‘Award Season’ take. The engaging characters plot for the limelight and sweetly steal the show, touching on collagen lips and entourages. Hollywood meets hysterity lightens the mood, as we watch on to discover which of our favorite movie stars will be accoladed.

We would love for you to join us in sharing your favorite Oscar moments by tagging M&M’s on Twitter using the hashtag #Oscars. Please feel free to comment on the site or tag us on twitter with your favorite M&M’s recipe to win a bag of crispy M&M’S.
