With expected shameful nods in agreement, it's pretty likely that quite a few of us have slacked at the gym 8 days after vowing to go every day as a **new years resolution**
Such hassle goes along with it, and the usual girl envy when I see a sweat-less beauty on the running machine next to me clearly wearing make up, effortlessly panting with me next to her... let's say not as pleasant a sight as her.
Then follows my weight lifting portion of the session where men to my right are lifting 70kg and I struggle with my 15's, all the while bitching about my hair clip digging into the back of my head. Yes, hairbands sound like the clever substitute but I'm not a fan of the pulling of my hair. And then, hey presto, came along a clever little gizmo called Linziclip with its handy flat surface letting me lie down on the map for my sit ups without me swearing every time my weight shifts up my body.
Photos are an obvious no no at the gym so for a more animated picture of the clip:

Sadly, a hair clip cannot motivate gym-going.

Whiter Days

Hysteria always seems to come hand in hand with the white blankets that form outside our widows. Why not take a short pause, and enjoy its beauty? Perhaps enjoy it through a lens - proven to be a great exam revision distraction today

Egyptian Cotton Snoozes

The word fashion itself holds numerous connotations and definitions, with each person attaching their own definition to the word. There is no doubt that when breaking down the term fashion with models strutting down the runway as champagne drinking, stiletto healed women follow their steps with turns of their heads , fashion brings with it luxurious discipline. Giorgio Armani no stranger to this world has expanded his reach into this world of luxury and moved into the largest tower in the world. Yes, Armani has taken on the role of hospitality and has decorated the interiors of  Dubai's Burj Tower hotel, the first of Armani's venture in this field.
Sadly no interior images as of yet but if Armani's interior range is any indication of the hotel's decor, expect dark wood interspersed with relaxing tones of browns and creams.

Chanel green, silver rings

Always welcoming high priced imitations that do not cross over into the "fake" pile, I was immediately drawn to these River Island croc brogues resembling H&M/Jimmy Choo's wonders that almost made my purse zip fly open at their obviously limited lifespan.
Given the H&M brogues show off colour that my Island's don't, but for a quarter of the price their clear perishability no longer stood in the way between myself and the till.
