Wouldn't it be wondrous if you could uplift your house and fly it anywhere in the world by tying hundreds-of-thousands of Helium Filled Balloons (I mean, sure, air traffic might be a bit tough if everyone got to do it and I'm sure the people at green peace might not like all the refuse from the popped balloons) ... but just imagine the possibilities!

Complements of Neofundi and illy, I attended an Amazing Barista Course through "Università del Caffè del Sud Africa" today. Being a devoted coffee drinker I can honestly say I was overwhelmed as to how little I really knew about coffee and the Art of making that perfect Espresso or Cappuccino! ...

The December 2010 issue of Vogue Russia features this baroque styled shoot of Ashley Smith by photographer Sharif Hamza and styled by Simon Robins. The costumes were designed by Atelier Versace, Valentino Haute Couture and Agent Provocateur.
'Дворцовая Интрига' directly translated means 'Royal Intrigue'. Under the Title ('Дворцовая Интрига') reads the following: "Democracy does not apply to Couture: Dominating Satins, Brocades, Velvets and other attributes of Absolute Monarchy"
Photographer, Sharif Hamza makes Spring’s most feminine frocks shine in his outdoor images shot for the February edition of Vogue Japan. Magdalena Frackowiak is a stunning vision in pastel dresses from labels such as Prada, Diane von Furstenberg and Givenchy. Lush curls by hair stylist Neil Moodie and blushed cheeks by makeup artist Yadim perfect the ladylike ensembles.

In an Office environment most men wear suits, and with suits comes The Tie. When dressing in suit, it is the necktie that will often add a dash of flavor to the overall outfit. While suits are typically gray, navy, or black and dress shirts either blue or white, it is a man's neckwear that adds a strong accent with its color and pattern.
