Posted in Cool stuff with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2008 by roxyishere

So Christmas is closing in & I´m thinking about gifts, the ones I would like to get & also give away. But since we´re all so damn broke nowadays I´ll do a little window shopping with you guys as usual!

If I can inspire some of you I´ll drop dead of happyness.

1. I absolutely love personalized gifts, don´t you? They feel so sincere & …yeah…personal! I adore this cute necklace & you can choose your own inscription:

They also have matching bracelets that are so so cute. I could buy one for myself as a Christmas present & one for my best friend or my mom!

From the same store I found this supercute personalized (so cool) Ipod dock:

It looks like an old fashioned toy! Retro & supercute.

2. At party´s I´m always the one that sitts in front of the computer & handles the music. I absolutely love it. No wonder why I stuck to this gift:

mixer

From: pbteen.com

It´s a twin Ipod audio mixer! I´d love this one…..

3. To the more cozy corner of life, who doesn´t love a cool, nice, sexy or pretty bed?? It´s one of the funniest things to dress in everybody´s home. It makes the difference!! And it doesn´t have to be this expensive:

Coming back to personalized gifts, make something funny or romantic for your pals! Your favourite photo, model or your favourite actor. Now you could finally stop lieing that you´re in bed with Madonna  😉 :

Even they are in the bedding business:

I tell ya, it´s an endless business.

Easy ways to make someone happy. Helping them making it neat in their home.

4. Make a poster or take a cool picture for your friend, buy a nice frame & give it awaaaaay:

There are a lot of cool frames out there. But if you can´t find any that´ll fit buy one make out of plain wood & paint & decorate it any way you want to.

Here are som cool frames:

5. Why not buy your friend some really cool candles? With or without scent:

6. Or a scarf! You can ware a nice scarf to anything to lift up the styling! If you´re not sure about the color, match it with his/her eyes.

It doesn´t have to be so rough & Christmas-ly, If you choose a lean fabric it can be worn all year long.

7. Or how about a nice pair of underwear! With the tag on (& a sticker over the price from the store) they can always change to the right size if it´s not…

8. Make up, or make up things, some good brushes (the make up -istas would love it!)…. Remember that there are mineral-make up that even take care of your skin! Look for that!

9. Something that smells good in the shower, bath or for the hair is nice!

For the real music- & movielovers it is always nice ot get some good soundtracks from series or movies or a DVD-box. Since everbody´s downloading they don´t spend money on that sort of stuff anymore, but it´s still really NICE to have the real deal in your home. Again, for the real music- & movie lovers.

10. Why not a movie + the soundtrack of it in a Christmas gift? It´s a great gift & will be used many years to come.

A song from season 1:

I want to buy so many things for my friends, family & me!! But I can´t take financial suicide.  If you´re on the same level right now I hope you´ve enjoyed our window shopping spree, but if you have the cash let it flow baby. When this finantial (?=¤%)#((/=)¤ ) is over, I´ll be back to shine 😉

….the giving away business is endless. How can you not have any idea what Christmas gifts to buy? If I´ve missed something, let me know.

Until then, I´ll be watching some great movies, dreamin away & going out dancing!

Have you seen Jerry Maguire? Hahahahaaaahaahaaa many good scenes.

Jerry Maguire – Show me the Money

Tom Cruise is celebrating 25 years of making movies. He´s done some excellent ones too.

Ok, I´ll leave you now. Bya dears!

Nice!

Heelless shoes? But why?

Posted in Fashion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2008 by roxyishere

So Victoria Beckham has yet again started a new trend (hopefully not), the heelless shoe.

Uma Thurman, Gwyneth Paltrow & Vic are the ‘first’ ones to use them. Or be seen with them. But that´s the same, isn´t it? 😉

Here they are:

The designer, Antonio Berardi, must have had a crazy-ass dream….but it´s interesting that he wanted to take these new heel-designs a bit further. He sais that “When you walk it´s almost on tiptoe”, which would be the reason not to.

It´s bad for your back! …that shoe really takes the ‘fashion victim’ to a new level.

Lily Aldridge has a pair also:

I wonder if you can ski in them? 😉

He did a little interview for wallpaper (good questions guys!), here are some of the answers:

What do you wear to work?
Jeans, sneakers and a white shirt.

Where would your ideal lunch be and who would it be with?
Villa Igiea, Palermo, with Glenn O’Brien, Kate Moss, Sophia Neophitou, and Steven Meisel: great food, wit, beauty, creativity and captured memories.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I’m hoping it’s yet to happen.

Do you listen to music whilst you work? If so, what are you listening to at the moment?
Absolutely. UNKLE, Ambulance, Jakob Dylan.

…well…that certainly explains the shoes 😉

If you want to read the rest of the interview you can click on a link in the end of this post 🙂 smart huh?

Manolo Blahnik made a (well, several) heelless shoe a while ago, this is from 2006:

Here´s another one of his shoes:

But this one looks “normal”, it has no twist, no edge anymore, now when I´ve seen the other. Antonios heelless shoe feels a bit extraterestial! Some would even say that about Victoria Beckahm. But I won´t lie, I like her & her crazyness.

Here is another heelless shoe that was designed by Manolo. Marc Jacobs has had all of these in different lines..

But could the colours be more mismatched? Seriously?

This is what Manolo Blahnik looks like:

The man is 66 years old! Congrats!
