Am I Buying Too Much?

Is your girlfriend’s birthday approaching? There probably is just one thought on your mind and that is, ‘How many gifts should I buy for my cute girlfriend? No doubt you would want to gift her all the lovely things money can buy. But you also need to know where to stop.

Not necessary that everyone is good at shopping for the perfect gift for the girlfriend. But buying everything you see is neither practical nor thoughtful. We have a few pointers for all those who find thins task tougher than many others.

Buy things that she has been planning on buying: As soon as her birthday is approaching keep your eyes and ears open. Girls very often drop tiny hints about things they like or wish to own. Shopping for exactly that will make her thrilled.

Shop for things that she will use: No this isn’t about buying her a pressure cooker or a hair remover. Shop for something that she can make use of and will not lay somewhere in a corner. But the things need aesthetic value along with utility as well.

Do not buy too much: This will burn a hole in your pocket and also prove that you have bought just about everything you could see It shows that you have not put in as much thought about what she would like.

Shop for the right size: When shopping for footwear or clothes, make sure you have checked her size beforehand. If the product is too small or too big it will be rendered useless not to mention will also ruffle her feathers.

Keep your budget in mind: Never go overboard while shopping for your girlfriend. A little bit here and there is fine, but if shopping for the gift means taking loans or cutting basic expenses, you might want to reconsider the gift.

Make sure you are buying the right thing: You can seek help from her best friend or check for yourself. But buy the products or variants that she uses. Buying anything else will be useless. Or at least shop at a store that allows exchange.

Looks Can Kill

Do you have a lot of walking around to do your job, standing for long hours, or even go window shopping? Well, then one needs a really comfortable pair of shoes or sandals to keep us going day after day. Sandals abound in the stores both online and at the big fancy malls and other shoe stores. After long hours of browsing I finally got a handmade pair of sandals.  I soon realized that these are really good leather sandals which I had finally found.

That is why leather is so much in demand. Be it shoe wallet, belt or sandals. This material called leather is classic. Shopping for them could be a huge task. One really need to look for the best quality and the best feel. It is very durable and flexible. Once bought you may not need to shop again for another one. They are very long lasting. Leather sandals let your feet breathe keeping it warm and flexible. The leather also makes it lightweight.

There are a few varieties of leather which are used to make sandals both for male and female. They are mostly made from animal skin, which is first treated and then used to make shoes.  Earlier there were only earthy hues but now the leather can be color dyed and given many colors to appeal to the ladies.

These sandals give a very cool modern appeal to the attire. Wear it with western outfits and ethnic clothes it sure will catch everyone’s eye. It is said that the right footwear can uplift your looks. These leather sandals surely come with killer looks. Not just for ladies but men too yearn to possess a pair of leather shoes and sandals. With new innovations, leather can be comfortably worn all-round the year in all seasons.


Prints On Fabrics

Fabrics that are used for many purposes at home come in different styles and designs. They are also available in plain, single shades, meaning without any designs or prints. Some people, who love doing this printing and painting part themselves, would generally go for such plain fabrics and it is fun making prints on them. And it is simple and easy too. You can do this with your printers at home. There are few printers that are enabled with the options of printing on fabric. But this is really going to be a costly affair and this might even be expensive than such pieces bought straight from the shops or retail outlets but the fun of doing it all by yourselves gives you satisfaction and freedom of printing your favorite pictures, cartoon characters, natural sceneries and all that you would like to adorn you house or rooms with.

You can use some of the best designs from the internet which might not be available elsewhere, outside in the market and make the sofa drapers, pillow or cushion covers unique and fantastic. There are some unique prints on cushion covers to die for specific needs and all this is possible when you have your printers enabled with the option of printing on fabrics because generally not all the printers are equipped to do this and hence you need to have the best, advanced one for this purpose. And the color combinations need to be perfect because the design is going to be printed by the machine and you cannot make modifications once done. So be very cautious in selecting your designs, colors and combinations and safely go for some simple yet elegant patterns so that you do not trouble your machines and at the same time enjoy the best of your prints on fabrics.

A DIY tool rack

This Is Why I Simply Adore Ysl Bags

Okay, confession time!

I am a bag person and I sometimes can get so worked up with getting ready if I think that any of my bags or clutches from the huge collection that I have does not go well with the outfit that I am tying. In fact, I am so fussy that I choose my clothes to work them around my bags and not vice versa as probably the rest of the humanity does. I find it absurd sometimes and it makes me a bit tired too but really cannot help because this is how I have been from the beginning.

My love for iconic bags:

Even though I do not have any prejudice towards an unbranded bag or a bag from a lesser known brand, it is usually a branded bag that I reach out for. No, please don’t mistake me for being haughty; it’s just that the quality and the impeccable finish are a big draw. Generally, the lesser known brands or the fakes of the original bags are so bad in their outward finish that they are a dead giveaway as soon as you pick them up!

Saint Laurent bags are my favorite:

I particularly like my ysl bags and I have a big collection of them. The eponymous brand is one that I can trust with my eyes closed. They come in so many forms and colors that I wish I had them in every possible hue and color to go with every outfit in my wardrobe or any one that o would be buying for the rest of my life.

Why I like them:

The brand makes bags that are extremely feminine and provocative in design. They truly belong to the haute couture. But the best part about them is that they are timeless pieces of craftsmanship. Consider this: I have a tote bag that my mum bought about twenty years ago and she passed it to me but if you see it right now in my hand, you may never be able to believe that it is so old. Classic and class apart!
