Summer tanning solution

Cosmetics - By Viennese @ May 31, 2009 10:31 PM 1 Comment »

 It never feels like summer without a little sun kissed look, and tanning is always been a big part of it.  Rather than expose yourself under the sun or heating up yourself on a harmful tanning bed, self-tanner becomes a safe approach.  I opened up the June 2009 Allure magazine and there is a half page beauty report on self-tan products, it listed some pros and cons about each product, which I’m probably going to try.  However, it’s very tricky when it comes to my yellow skin undertone, finding a self-tan product that doesn’t make me look orange is hard, so I’m always on a mission trying to hunt down the best self-tan product in spring/summer.

Art on T-Shirts

Uniqlo UTI wear tees all year long, doesn’t matter if it’s -30°C outside with snow, or 30°C outside with sunshine, I always have tees on me, and more over, they are mostly short sleeves (you really have to admire the heat system in Canada).  So I’m the worst when it comes to tees, once I realize the cut fits me, I’ll buy every single colour and design of that tee.  This happens to my Uniqlo and Lauren Moshi tees, and apparently, these are my top 2 chooses.

Snap it the old fashion way

Lifestyle - By Viennese @ May 25, 2009 11:28 PM No Comments »

A couple of days ago we were talking about the new stylish digital cameras, today I’m going back to the old fun way of taking pictures — using the LOMOGRAPH cameras.

Lomograph technology is very simple, it is almost the same as using the 35mm film camera, but you can have a lot more fun with it for being artistic by using the cameras called Lomo, that usually comes in 35mm or 120mm medium format.  Lomo offers practically no features at all other then a simple optic lens, no zooming, no red eye reduction and stuff like that, just plain shooting.  However, this type of cameras has becoming increasingly popular in the recent years, I actually thought of buy one myself – iff. I have the time to modify it and have fun with it.

*Smile* you’re on camera!

Hip Technologies - By Viennese @ May 21, 2009 9:33 AM No Comments »

Whether you like photography or just enjoy taking snap shots all over the place, a compact digital camera is always your best friend.  Personally, I like to pack my gear, go out and take some “real shots” with my Canon EOS 5D or just go the old fashion way, use my EOS 1V film camera to do the artistic job……if I have spare moments.  Right, it really is a hazard sometimes when I realize that my gear is heavier then everything else that I brought to a trip, so I bought this Panasonic Lumix LX-2K compact digital camera a couple of years ago to satisfy my hunger of shooting 24/7.

Cheap Monday F/W 2009

Apparel, Denim - By Viennese @ May 16, 2009 6:10 AM No Comments »

Cheap Monday

It might still be a little early to talk about FW collection as we’re just in the middle of  SS, but we’re always ahead in the fashion industry.  In fact, the FW 2009 collection of most brands had already been previewed, and I’m gonna start with Cheap Monday.

If you look at the SS 2009 collection of Cheap Monday, you’ll notice that the brand has been pretty comprehensive, they have a large selection of unisex jeans, coloured skinnies, tees, shorts and skirts.  Is it gonna be the same in FW 2009?  Probably.  If you look at the F/W 2009 catalog that’s been released on 5th Feb, 2009, you’ll get the basic idea of the collection.

Tiffany & Co. 1837 Black Titanium Cuff links

When I started working as a marketing executive in Asia, I always had to wear shirts with dressy pants and a blazer for meetings and clients, that was pretty much the dress code over there and to be completely honest with you, I found them boring.  Of course you could dress in style, like shirts with ruffle, high waist wide leg pants, Vivienne Westwood pencil skirts, etc.

Following the footsteps of Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui has become the second designer to join the Target’s Designer Collaboration series. Inspired by the 4 main characters from Gossip Girls, this collection is said to be combining the elements of art, city, spirit, punk and glamour. I can’t wait, Anna Sui + preppy with an edge (is there such thing?) at discounted prices, it can’t get any better!! If only there’s a Target in Canada!!

The collection is due to go on sale at 250 select Target stores and Target.com from September 13 through October 17.

Sephora latest toy

Cosmetics - By Amélie @ May 4, 2009 10:08 PM No Comments »

Just got this limited edition colour play palette at Sephora by Sephora. It’s got 36 different eye shadows, 12 lip glosses, 3 blushes and a bronzer just in time for summer. I was never a big Sephora brand fan, but after getting the eyeshadow I must say it has surpassed my expectation. At only $29 CAD, it is definitely worth every penny of it. I got the 3rd last one at the Eaton Centre today, and they told me that’s it, no more shipments coming, sooooooo good luck shopping!!

Motorcycle Jacket

Apparel - By Viennese @ May 4, 2009 12:33 PM No Comments »

It is always good to have a leather jacket weather it’s Spring or Fall.  Decades ago, leather jackets used to be in black, brown or grey only.  Today, not only that they comes in beautiful colours, they also comes in various styles, and Motorcycle style has been one of the most favourite in the fashion industry.  We’ve seen a few from Spring 2009 including the one from H&M x Matthew Williamson,  now there will more coming out in Fall 2009.

Let’s take a look at some of them. (please move the cursor to the pictures to see the brands and the prices)  You can purchase them online by clicking on the pictures below.

Juicy Couture Charms

Couple of years ago when Juicy Couture introduced a selection of charms, they have becoming one of the most popular items to collect.  I think this is about the time when I started to collect charms myself.  The thing about charms is that, you can basically have anything you want, almost everything that you fantasized, or just anything that you believed will bring you luck, it could be a diamond ring, a crown, a lady bug, a guitar, a lucky cat, even a buddha.  And you can wear them on your bracelet or necklace.
