It’s a Colorful World

It’s no secret that playtime is essential and beneficial to the development and happiness of a child. It’s during playtime that a child has the freedom to let their creative imagination run free. Anytime you can cultivate their creative spirit, you are doing something good for your child. Self expression and creativity often go hand-in-hand. One area where children tend to want to exercise their opinion and their creative side is with their wardrobe choices. No doubt, parental guidance is sometimes needed in order to teach a child wardrobe appropriateness, however there are times when it’s good just to let your child wear something that is shockingly colorful and just plain fun to wear. If you’re having trouble visualizing something that fits this category, click here and you will find shoe selections that will delight your child. There’s everything from glittery purple moccasins and rainbow colored sneakers for girls to boy’s shoes in brilliant yellow, shocking green or a slightly more sedate red. Let your child browse through the shoes with you and, if possible, let them choose a shoe style and a color pattern that depicts their personality or expresses their creative side.

Be sure that you don’t let your kids have all the fun. Statistics show that there are numerous benefits to adults letting their inner child have some time for creative adventures and some basic fun time. An ideal way to clue your mature adult side in that it’s time for it to take a back seat and let your inner child have center stage for a while is to take off the shoes you wear to work and put on something a little more colorful or quirky. How about slipping into some shoes featuring a Star Wars Era design? What about some bright blue or camo sneakers to wear during your inner child moments?

Women tend to neglect scheduling relaxation and fun time for themselves. Allowing yourself some time for fun and creative adventures is a good way to relieve stress and help you refocus when life gets frustrating and hectic. A pair of multi-colored sneakers or some “Hello Kitty” shoes could certainly put you in a playful, relaxed mood.

If everyone in the family has a pair of shoes that immediately bring out the smiles, you could all enjoy a family fun day in your silly shoes. Who wouldn’t enjoy that kind of day?

It is a fact that women tend to be more attracted to men who are suave, neat, and well-dressed. Men who look successful because of their stylish clothes, shoes, and accessories have more confidence because they know that they look good. A man’s attire is not complete without the right accessory, particularly a watch. Nothing can beat a luxury watch when it comes to elegant dressing. It is an important part of a successful man’s wardrobe. There are many branded watches but a Victorinox Swiss Army watch is a cut above the rest.

Best School Fashion

Finding the perfect college gear is a “must” for any new student. The right gear not only showcases a student’s love for their school but also makes the student feel like a part of their college community. No matter where you live, finding the perfect college gear should be a priority. If there’s a college student in your life that you want to surprise, there are a couple of must-have items that you can add to their collection.

Clothing with the college name and insignia is a great gift for a student. Sweatshirts increase the student’s school spirit and keep the student warm during chilly football games or on the way to early-morning finals. Many schools have their own line of socks, hats, gloves and more. Pick the ideal clothing item for the student in your life. If you’re buying something for someone who loves to lounge around, for example, a pair of pajama pants with the school logo could be the right choice. You can shop at the campus bookstore for gear, of course, but you can also buy University of Alabama clothing online. This makes it easy to ship the gift directly to the college student.

You could also choose gear such as notebooks, backpacks, pencils and posters. If the student you’re shopping for lives in a dorm room, for example, you could get some great decorative items that the student could post around their room. Streamers, pictures or even school photos can all go a long way in showing school spirit while also making the student feel at home. Most college students are tight on cash, so choosing something that is versatile could also be a great way to show your love. Remember that no matter what you get, make sure that the item is something that the student you’re shopping for will love.

It would be a dream come true to do something that you are passionate about. Like for instance, being in a profession that you have dreamt of ever since you were a child. That would feel as if you are not working because you love your work and you are enjoying yourself. On the contrary, if you were forced into a career by your parents or other influential people in your life, for sure your job will feel like a punishment or a cross for you to bear forever. Wouldn’t it be great if you could choose your own path and be responsible for your own decisions?

Tiger Beer has a new campaign telling people to break free from conformity and live a life that they desire. This is Tiger Beer’s Tiger #uncage. The gist of Uncage is looking at things in a brand new light and following your instincts and not going with what others are telling you to do. In the run up to National Day, Tiger Beer has collaborated with Tree Potatoes, a famous Youtube channel headlined by Singaporeans Aaron Khoo, Elliot Tan, and Janice Chiang, which has become one of the top three Youtube channels in Singapore inspite of starting just a few months ago. For them, being uncaged means stepping out of your comfort zone to do what you love.

Tiger Beer National Day is in the spotlight because of Tree Potatoes’ video whose aim is to show how proud they are of their country Singapore, and thus unleashing local pride. Along with the hashtag #YouKnowYoureSingaporeanWhen, the video shows the everyday habits of Singaporeans. The video points out their qualities like their love for eating hawker food each day, how they complain a lot about the weather but get defensive when foreigners complain about Singapore, being always in a hurry, having the feeling that Singapore is always a safe place to live in, and being able to use more than three languages in a single sentence.

Tiger Beer, the world renowned Singaporean beer brand available in over 75 countries worldwide including Europe, USA, Latin America, Australia and the Middle East, inspires every person to Uncage the Tiger within them. Let us all do our share to spread the campaign by watching and sharing the video on Facebook using #uncage. You can also share your thoughts about the video and unleash your pride about Singapore.

Getting the Correct Frame Measurements of Eyeglasses

 How to Measure Your Eyeglass Frames Size Infographic | Zenni Optical

Buying eyeglasses online is more economical than buying it at an optical shop. But how will you purchase perfect fitting glasses if you can’t try them on? Here are some helpful tips:

Know the frame dimensions such as the frame width which measures the whole horizontal front of the frame; lens height, the vertical height of the lens; the temple arms which connects to the front of the frame on either side and rests at the back of the ear; lens width, the horizontal diameter of one lens; and the bridge which is the part that goes across the bridge of the nose. Check the inside of the temple arm for numbers which indicate the three frame dimensions. Provide a space of 2 to 3 mm on each measurement except for the bridge which should only have 2 mm. The frame width, however, is not shown on the temple arm. You will have to do the measurements yourself. Also remember that if the SPH is +/- 6.00, it’s best to have a lens width that’s lower than 50 mm.

Men’s Guide to Accessorizing


Presented By Nice Laundry

Nowadays, it is no longer enough for men to just dress neatly.

Pair that with a Cutler and Gross 1084 Matt Dark Turtle sunglasses. It is cool to have accessories such as Bottega Veneta Card Case with Intrecciato pattern (a front pocket wallet), ruggedly-stylish and water-resistant Marathon Men’s Jumbo Diver’s Watch, and Machine Era Co. keysquare that slips onto a belt loop and can open beers.

A buyer’s guide to lingerie for men and women

 photo mengirl_zpsbcfd0b5b.jpg

When it comes to buying lingerie, both for yourself or other people, it can be a bit of a minefield. Lingerie touches closely on lots of areas that we often don’t talk about: our intimate inner worlds, how we view ourselves as attractive beings, etc. It can be a hard tightrope to walk between getting it so right, and so wrong. Here are some pointers to help avoid awkward moments and hopefully hit the lingerie target bulls-eye for both sexes.

Ladies first

If you are someone buying lingerie for the lady in your life, it is likely you will be experiencing mixed emotions. The fear of choosing the wrong garments may cause you to feel a little tense, but there’s no need to worry. It is important to get the basics right in order to choose successfully, but this is easy. Check in her underwear drawer for the sizes that she uses in both bra and panties. Try to check several garments to get a good idea of size, as different brands may run big or small. At the same time, look at the types of styles she picks out for herself: girly or punkish? Does she prefer any particular colors or combinations? Next, head for the lingerie store and start looking. If the idea of entering a lingerie store makes you break out in a cold sweat, consider buying lingerie online to avoid the unwelcome attention of over-zealous sales staff and also to give yourself time to fully peruse the goods on offer without feeling desperate to flee the scene. You can find cheap sexy intimate apparel of great quality online, if you know where to look.

Gentleman’s tastes

If you are someone aiming to add style to your special guy’s underwear drawer, you need to study his habits. Does he prefer boxers or briefs? Is he a physical guy that requires support, or a laid back dude whose requirements are looser? Introduce him to the new undergarments on the block, boxer briefs. With their fitted silhouette, they emphasize your man’s physique whilst keeping him adequately supported. Men tend to change their underwear depending on their activity and whether they need more or less support. If he is committed to one shade, say white, why not show him that patterned and multicolored styles can work just as well while adding a little fun?

Shared shopping experience

A really fun way of spending time together is going on a lingerie-shopping spree. Make sure to discuss which types you find attractive, exciting, sensible, etc. Everyone has different comfort boundaries when it comes to lingerie; not all men like to wear thongs, for example, and some women find it hard to relax in underwear that is too saucy or racy, preferring a more delicate and feminine style. It’s all up to you.

With you both there to offer opinions and feedback, the chances of buying something you are both comfortable and satisfied with are really heightened. Shopping for underwear together is a fun and intimate shared activity that shows mutual trust and helps bring couples closer together. Isn’t that something you should be trying?

Top Five Braided Accessories

From the futuristic Mohawk braid to more natural, old-world styles, interesting braided hair remains popular on runways around the world. While these daring hairstyles are fun ways to stay fashion-forward, they are not the only ways to incorporate braids into a polished look. Simultaneously trendy and classic, braided accessories are a great way to instantly add texture and style to any outfit.

 Braided Headband

 Elaborate braided hairstyles often require long, thick, luscious locks. Luckily, people with shorter, thinner hair need not skip this intriguing new trend. Headbands adorned with pre-formed braids come in a variety of hair colors, thicknesses, and braid styles and can be made with real or synthetic hair. Best of all, they slip right on! Anyone looking for a way to immediately elevate a style should consider incorporating this convenient accessory into their fashion arsenal. Consider purchasing multiple headbands in different colors for a striking, modern look.

 Braided shoes

 Any fashion forward person knows never to neglect their feet. Footwear completes a look and can say a lot about someone’s personality. Shoes can also be a great way to incorporate braids into a wardrobe. Sandals with braided straps have a classic appeal, but they are by no means the only braided shoes available today. Look for pumps or wedges with braided details on the heel or flats with a braided design on the toe. Loafers constructed entirely from braided leather make a bold statement heavy on texture that can add visual interest to an otherwise sleek ensemble.

 Braided bracelet

 Material is key when it comes to braided bracelets. Thicker leather braids add an earthy hint to an outfit, while delicate metal braids will catch light and sparkle for a date night or more formal affair. Colorful fabric or even plastics can infuse playful pops of color into a wardrobe. Thicker, chunky braids make a statement, while smaller braids will pair well with almost any style.

Braided belt

 Just as the braid is a hairstyle in no danger of losing its appeal, the braided belt is utterly timeless. Sport a classic black or brown leather braided belt with your favorite dress or pair of pants for a classic, polished look. Or, choose belts made from metallic fabric for an eye-catching addition to any outfit. Some braided belts are even made from stretchy material that ensures a snug fit and accentuates the waist.

 Braided scarf

Scarves are no longer only for keeping necks warm in the winter. These versatile accessories can be worn any time of year and are an easy way to complete an outfit. Scarves made from knitted fabric and fashioned into one long chunky braid are a dynamic way to showcase this trend. Lighter scarves with one or more smaller braided strands add more subtle texture and elevate a look above more mainstream solid scarves.

Braided hair accessories can make bold statements or subtle hints. They can shift from classic to cutting edge and from earthy to elegant. These versatile pieces embrace a timeless design in both new and traditional ways and can complement a variety of styles and personalities. From belts to scarves and from headbands to shoes, braids are not just for pigtails any longer.

I’ve decided to put up an series of post here which I’ll be calling as Home decors, Actually, it may part as well of my blog’s categories because sometimes I got this writer’s blocked where I didn’t know what to blog about next as I certainly focusing with fashion alone for this site, tyngc.org, that is why now I am implying some different topics to tackle about here for me to keep going.. ehhe

Actually, Home decor is one of the theme I liked about but since the fashion is the one leads when the time am building this site up, it made turned that way. But I think putting home decors kind of topic here is still doable since home decors are quite related to an fashion too, right?. Today, let me share with you these pictures I’ve got over the web were I’ve found these ceramics made of plates and mugs pretty cool, as well the kitchen itself. And I hope I can have this type of kitchen decors too soon where the earth and nature concepts were implemented.
