From new style staples to smart hair and skincare to ways to amp up that summer soirée, these will help get you through the season in fab form.

William Henry ‘Zurich’ Design Money Clips (www.WilliamHenry.com)
First are the stunningly gorgeous money clips from William Henry, a piece of luxury jewelry and accessory brand. The company’s Zurich design money clips are stellar for summer.

The Zurich ‘Panama’ design features hand-forging by Mike Sakmar using an ancient Japanese art used to decorate samurai swords. The inlay is cocobolo wood, punctuated with smoky quartz. Its engraving is also bright cut against the matte-finished background. Only 1,000 pieces of this special design are available.

Metalicious Silver Shark Tooth Necklace (www.Metalicious.com)
Thanks to the Metalicious line of luxury jewelry made from recycled metals, ocean-lovers can tell people they’re wearing the tooth of a maneater!

The company’s Small Silver Shark Tooth Necklace is cast in sterling silver from an original shark tooth, then oxidized to bring out the details and give it a soft finish. Available with a choice of a 17″, 20″ or 22″ sterling curb chain to ensure it falls in that perfect spot on your necklace, the shark tooth pendant itself is 1″ long x 3/4″ wide.

I like this piece because it can be edgy and sophisticated, but sweet and subtle also. It looks like a work of modern art! You can wear this every day, mixing and matching it with various looks. Metalicious sources recycled metals and ethically mined gemstones to create meaningful, handcrafted heirlooms that adhere to strict environmental and sustainability standards.

This identity theft, RFID- blocking wallets also look extremely handsome. They’re held together by handcrafted premium leather for a luxury look and feel, while the design provides instant card access whenever necessary.

Published

vape fashion

As a trend, vaping has come up in a big way. Its slim and stylish look has gained immense popularity among the youth. Hence, it is no surprise that vaping is increasingly impacting the Entertainment industry and Social media. But an interesting trend that we have noticed is the proliferation of vaping in the fashion industry.

Want to see how e-cigs have made a mark on the fashion ramp walks? Then check out its journey from entertainment and social media to the fashion domain.

Vaping and its influence in entertainment and social media

Vaping has massively influenced the entertainment industry. Remember Kevin Spacey holding the e-cig in House of Cards? It’s the first known instance of e-cigarette appearing on television. It is also seen as a prominent prop in the hands of the leading man, John Cusack in the film, Drive Hard.

Global icons like Leonardo DiCaprio are self-confessed vaping fans who use it even in personal lives. Similarly, Samuel Jackson and Lindsay Lohan, who previously used to smoke cigarettes, are now seen with vapes.

These instances explain why the youth is highly influenced by the presence of e-cigs in the hands of celebrities. However, it’s not the celebrities alone that are creating this hot trend.

Social media too joins in showering its affection for vaping

Social media users too are showcasing their love for e-cigs. Platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and many other platforms enable the user to search for different types of posts on vape kits and its models, or know about the launch of new juice flavours, and learn much more about vaping in general.

Where does fashion come in the picture?

With the obvious spotlight on vaping, how could the fashion industry remain far behind? It is clear that fashion takes a cue from the hot and happening trends globally.

  1. Vape Accessory Trend

It is difficult to hold the vape all day long. With its increasing trend in clothes, apparel manufacturers are inspired to make accessories within the outfits that can hold the vape and even look cool.

It is not surprising to see street-style clothing that carries dedicated pockets to carry around the vaping device in a discrete manner. There are scores of wearable accessories like a gold chain, vape case, vape band, and many more different types of accessories.

  1. The Rise of Vape Culture

Vaping became widely popular mainly as a less harmful alternative to traditional cigarettes. There is a community of people who are widely connected with the mission of giving up of smoking and promoting the use of vape. The coming together of such people with a common interest also has led to a rise in vaping culture.

It is not uncommon to see a vaping act as a conversation starter between two strangers who are vaping enthusiasts. The culture also encompasses people wearing clothes specific to vaping and adopt a relaxed and laid-back attitude, in a vaping competition. This reinforces the vape culture. Some people adopt vaping as a hobby, while some start vaping to quit smoking. Irrespective of the reason, one fact is constant, the vaping culture is here to stay.

  1. The proliferation of Vaping in Streetwear Styles

The use of streetwear clothes such as hoodies and sneakers are now enhanced with motifs, logos, and designs of popular vaping brands. They are openly sporting apparel with the images of e-cigarettes and phrases around cloud smoking. They no longer find it difficult or awkward to do so. Rather, they are affectionately displaying the brand and the type of e-juice they prefer.

  1. Vaping Competitions are Now Held at Many Places

Yes, there are vaping competitions that are held regularly across the globe. In such competitions, people try to perform the best possible tricks like cloud chasing and artistic shapes of blowing out smoke.

Vaping fanatics take such events very seriously. They put in a lot of practice with a huge amount of different types of juices used to produce the most amazing-looking vapours. Mastering these tricks requires a lot of time. The trend is so popular that people who have never used any form of cigarettes are also participating in it and adopting vaping as a part of their fashion quotient.

To Sign off

Vaping will continue to influence the fashion industry with new styles and innovative creativity at the intersection of the two diverse areas.

Summer Vacay Prep – How to Get Holiday-Ready

Published

on

woman on a beach

Summer vacation season is upon us. July and August are the hottest dates for the ultimate summer adventure. People work so hard throughout the year and they can’t wait for the summer to come so they can head to the beach and soak up the sun.

If you belong to the group of people who will soon depart to their destination of choice, you have to think of a few things before the pre-holiday excitement sets in.  A proper vacation prep checklist will remind you to take care of the most important things. It is better to take care of everything before we hail a cab to the airport. 

Here’s what you should definitely think of before you leave for your next vacation:

At least one month before…

Plan your entire vacation one month before your flight

In order to truly enjoy your well deserved time off, try to plan your days in advance. Get to know the destination by googling all the relevant information. Get yourself familiar with the history of the town so you won’t miss the important monuments. Search for the best beaches and look for popular activities. Find the best authentic restaurants so you can try the food you’ve never tasted before. Plan to visit at least one neighboring town or village so you can see other popular sights and take a break from sunbathing.

Also, try to find at least one of off-the-beaten-path beaches so you can enjoy nature and avoid the overcrowdedness. This will wake up that hidden adrenaline junkie who wants to enter into the unknown.

Make sure your Google Map is up to date so you can navigate the unknown areas with ease and without the fear of getting lost.

Never forget to check if your documents are up to date

Make sure your passport or any other personal documentation is in order and up to date. Also, make copies of your passport, credit cards and anything else that can be easily lost. Keep it in a safe place in case of any unwanted holiday emergency. Additionally, inform a person you trust, be it a friend or a family member, of your travel itinerary. These are just precautionary steps and hopefully, your holiday will go just as you planned it.

Be realistic about your budget

Being realistic about your budget will help you stay within planned expenses and avoid all other unnecessary ones. Make sure you divide your budget per each day of vacation so you can easily track your expenses. If you stay within your day’s budget you won’t spend more than you planned. If you’ve spent less in a day than you are allowed to, you can always spend that on another day.

It is also advised to have an emergency amount of cash you can use in case there are some unexpected spendings.

Get-Holiday Ready

It’s important to stay healthy when traveling, so make sure everything is in order before you go. First of all, research the country you will visit. Make sure to know everything about health risks and stock your first aid kit for general emergencies.  Purchase a travel health insurance plan because it has so many benefits that you will find invaluable when you need it most. 

If you are going on a month-long vacation, you should also check your health. Visit your GP at least 4-6 weeks before your trip. They will recommend vaccines you might need and refill your current medications. You should also find time to visit your dentist at least two weeks before your trip. A dentist will assess your oral health and recommend proper treatment if there is something that should be fixed. Dental treatment away from home can be difficult to find and expensive, so make sure to visit trusted professionals like Penrith Dental Clinic and make sure your smile is vacation-ready.

Vacation Prep With A Leaner Diet

Going to a beach resort will surely make us body-conscious. A month before going on a vacation is surely not the time to purchase a gym membership or start a diet. The idea is to go on a holiday full of energy and not to risk your health just because you must fit into that bikini!

The best way to approach your own summer body prep is to just go on a leaner diet. Just try to eat healthy as much as you can, avoid fast food and processed meals, limit sugar and alcohol intake and drink lots of water. Try to work out regularly and make sure you are full of positive energy before you leave.

A few days before your trip, don’t forget to…

Do the essential holiday shopping and pack your luggage

Packing is yet another thing that you should plan according to the location and weather conditions. It is best to plan a layered wardrobe in case the weather might change. In case of a beach vacation, make sure to pack light fabric and pieces of clothing which can be washed easily and dried quickly. Don’t forget to weigh your luggage before your flight as airlines have strict guidelines.

Prepare your home

A day before, clean out your fridge and remove everything that might go bad by the time you return. Freeze the ones that have a longer expiration date and toss out everything else that won’t be edible by the time you come back.

This will definitely remind you to take out the trash, too. If you don’t do this, you risk coming back to a smelly house and a pest invasion. After you’ve cleaned out the fridge, taken out the trash, make sure everything is nice, tidy and clean. You won’t be in the mood to clean your home when you come back, you will probably feel those post-vacation blues and the last thing you’d like to do is dusting and vacuuming. Make sure to do this before you go.

A few minutes before you go, check your windows, pull up the curtains, unplug electronic devices, remove the spare key and lock the door. In case you are one of those people who always question themselves if the door is locked, have someone take a picture of you while you are locking the door. This photograph will remind you that you locked the door and that you can finally relax and look forward to some time off.
