Vain Babbalings

Today is Amelia's birthday, she's officially not a baby anymore. My daddy and Mel and Ozie are coming back from Los Belones today, (about bloody time, the poor people) and Mishu is gonna try and terrify them by wearing a pink polka dotted skirt and some yellow top. I think it just might work. Tomorrow is the long awaited party, and there will be a grand total of 26 people, out of which only 3 are guys. I'm telling you, spain needs new blood. I'm supposed to go make the schedule now but I really don't want to. So it makes me very happy that Mel is coming home, so she can take it over again. Yayyyy. So I guess that's it. Rmember to be happy everyone, even though you miss me so very much.
Okay, bye bye.

Man Fashion: Car Shoe

Founded by creative artisan Gianni Mostile in 1963, Car Shoe embodied Mostile’s two passions – race cars and hand-made shoes that sparked the invention of a moccasin with a sole set on tiny rubber nubs.


The ‘car shoe’ earned Mostile not only a patent from the Italian Ministry of Industry Trade; it also garnered Mostile a large group of sophisticated connoisseurs that included Giovanni Agnelli, Roberto Rossellini, and Lapo Elkann among others.


Prada acquired control of Car Shoe in 2001, opening flagship stores in Milan and introduced the line into over 200 major boutiques internationally. Spring-summer 2004 saw the launch of its first bag collections.

The layout foresees the classical Car Shoe frame that outlines a single image, emphasizing the classical driving shoe, which is styled in different shades of crocodile leather, constant element of an informal and refined lifestyle.

Man Fashion: Sir Sean Connery

If you are old enough, you should know who is Sir Sean Connery, or at least watched his movies before. If not, maybe I can share some his background story with you here. Sean was born into a working class family in August of 1930, at sixteen, he enlisted in the Royal Navy. His glorious moment was he took on the movies on Secret Agent 007 in six of Ian Fleming's Bond movies over a decade: Dr. No (1962), Goldfinger (1964), From Russia, With Love (1964), Thunderball (1965), and You Only Live Twice (1967), and Diamonds are Forever (1971).


In 1989, at almost 60 years of age he was voted People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive." When advised of the award, Sean seemed to be unaffected as he replied, "Well there aren't many sexy dead men, are there."


So this Scottish acting legend has celebrated his 78th birthday by launching his memoirs at a sell-out event in Edinburgh. Launched Being A Scot in front of a 300-strong crowd, which included First Minister Alex Salmond, at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Business Attire - Signs of a Good Fit Part II

I am sure some of you must have been waiting this for quite sometime. First of all, I am really sorry as I was tied up with something else, and finally here I am to put down the Part II of Business Attire - Sign of Good Fit.

Jacket Waist
When you button your jacket, it should cinch tightly enough around the waist to create slightly visible tension lines.
Useful Tips: If the tension lines extend into a large, pro-nounced X-shape, mean the jacket is too tight!

Trousers Waist
The waist of dress trousers is designed to sit higher than casual pants. Nevertheless, you want them to sit comfortably, so wear them during your fitting as you anticipate doing regularly. Well, this is to ensure that you crotch is not dangling absurdly low in everyday use.

Trousers Fit
In keeping with the narrow silhouette that you've established from the waist up, your trousers should be trim throughout. Remember, is trim, but not tight! If your pants have pleats, they should not be pulling open from tension.


Trousers Break
Your pants should break once on the top of your shoe, and only once. They should be cut slightly longer at the back, so they hang roughly an inch above the ground, We shouldn't see your sock when you're walking, and neither your pants touching the floor while walking.


So here it end the Business Attire - Sign of good fit. I hope you enjoy and find this man fashion tips helpful.

I picked up a lot of spanish over these 20some days thanks to the olympics.
So we shall have to wait till London 2012 for the next games, and who says I'll be in spain by then?? Oh and by the way, I am sooooo very scandalized about the closing ceremony. Meaning Jimmy Page preforming with Leona Lewis. I mean, dude, you were part of LED ZEPPILIN for crying out loud. How did you end up singing with her?

Man Fashion: Japan Designer Yoshiyuki Ogata

Ninjas don't wear sweatshirts. Yoshiyuki Ogata, a Tokyo fashion designer whose street fashion is stocked in upscale L.A. and London boutiques, took his fashion cues from the rich traditions of local design, but not from some Parisian or New York City atelier.


Hence, instead of a hip-hop hoodie, Ogata wears a sleek hooded jacket that zips up to show only the eyes, a self-made creation inspired by what ninjas used to wear during their stealthy missions.

"Because Japan was an isolated island for so long, there is so much that is unique about our culture," says Ogata, whose design for the Japanese contestant in the 2006 Miss Universe pageant won the best national costume award.

Aqua

Yayyyyy it's over!
Meaning the three days of working at Aqua, i.e. the shopping center that hires us each week for ballooning. But this time,in occasion of the Formula 1 Grand Prix here in Valencia, which by the way is a BIG thing, the owner deiced to hire us to do publicity for the mall. Fun fun.
He said he was gonna hire models for the job but then went with us....cus we're so pretty. Am I supposed to feel good about that??? Nope.
So yeah, pretty much what we had to do was walk around Valencia for six hours straight handing out flyers. Thankfully no camera was available so we all can be spared footage of me attacking people with little papers.
