All About Cufflinks

 photo gqparis-1_zps24396c43.jpg

The common accessories that men wear are watches and rings. Watches are not only functional, they can also be fashionable. While rings show a man’s achievement and commitment. Both are common accessories that a lot of men use everyday. Probably the least known accessory is the cufflink because not all types of men wear them and they are usually worn in business meetings, formal events, and other social gatherings. Some may not think that it is an essential item but it actually completes a guy’s overall look and style. As a matter of fact, most Korean male celebrities who are known for being fashionable, wear cufflinks for both their formal and casual wear.

The kiss and the barrel-style are two ways of cuffing shirts. The kiss cuff is usually the preferred way of cuffing shirts where the cuffs are pinched together as though the ends are kissing. The barrel cuff is a style where the top end is overlapped with the other (it was popularized by Dan Rice, a famous 19th century entertainer and clown). Unlike women’s accessories, men’s accessories should be worn sparingly. Overly flashy items are a no-no. Remember that wearing cufflinks is an effortless and elegant way to show your personality.

Protecting Your Leather Frank Wright Shoes

Although I am a laidback type of guy who prefers to hang out with my friends in casual clothes and comfortable shoes, I do not limit myself to buying just one type. As a matter of fact, I have a mini collection of shoes that a lot of my friends and relatives are envious of. I also have a few pairs of leather shoes that I give careful attention to because they are quite expensive and I want them to last for a long time. Leather shoes are sensitive to water and chemicals, thus it is prone to damage. There are simple ways however to ensure that your leather shoes are not just well protected but clean as well.

It is advisable to apply a water repellent on your leather shoes before you wear them because water can really do a lot of damage to your shoes. When it comes to polishing, choose a color that is the same with your shoe color or else they will get stained permanently. Also use a cream based polish instead of the liquid one. So as not to affect the quality and texture of the leather, do not go overboard with your polishing. It is a must to use a high quality leather conditioner on your shoes for them to stay shiny.

Another way to protect your leather shoes is to choose the right protectant. Keep in mind that different weatherproofing products serve different purposes. Use a beeswax product instead of a protective spray. Probably the most important tip is to not use your leather shoes during bad weather. With these things in mind, you will definitely be able to use them in a long time.

Shopping for leather shoes is likewise easy when you know where to shop for the best. Established in 1885 in London, Frank Wright Shoes up until this day, sells trendy footwear that combines classic designs with modern styling. They have a wide variety of shoes (leather, suede, Brogues, Razor Sole, and Canvas) and Boots (leather, suede, Work Boot, Chukka/Desert Boots, Razor Sole, Canvas, Chelsea Boots). There is definitely something for everyone.

Among all the shoes available, my favorite is the Frank Wright Fry Black Leather because I can wear it with just about anything. I can pair it with pants/chino pants for that formal look or with shorts for a casual, laidback style. It has a traditional brogue design and fry multi eyelet with lace-up shoe style. This shoe sells at an affordable price and can be worn everyday.

Tips To Be Consider As You Travel

Many people enjoy traveling and everyone is looking forward to it but sometimes things don’t go as we planned and a trip can easily go from perfect to really, really bad. And that is why you will read some tips that might help you not ruin your vacation, holiday, honeymoon or anything you are planning.

1. Always pack a hat. In the winter it will keep you warm and in the summer it will keep the sun off your face.

2. Bring a travel first aid kid.

3. Never pack something that you haven’t worn before. The first time you will wear it you will feel very uncomfortable, and that’s not how you want to feel.

4. Make a packing list a week before you travel and whenever you think of something you need, write it down.
5. Bring little packs of tissues because toilet paper is not given in many parts of the world.

6. Border control agents do not get sarcasm. Keep this in mind if you’re someone that likes jokes

7. Prepare for every single situation. Few days before leaving home, make sure you have everything you need and prepare for every single scenario that might happen. If you are traveling with children, then make sure you brought something to keep them busy during the trip so they don’t annoy everyone around them.

Top summer destinations

 photo summers-_zpsf8b40387.jpeg

Summer is not that close but some people like planning ahead. This is article for those who wonder where to go this summer. Here is a list of attractive summer destinations:

1. Maui. It has multi-colored beaches, jaw-dropping scenery and five-star resorts. Adventure-seekers can hike through the lush Haleakala National Park or drive the winding Road to Hana. Or if you’re craving a bit of sun, spend your summer lounging on Wailea’s shores.

2. Fiji. There really isn’t a bad time to visit Fiji, but many consider the summertime — with its constant sunshine — to be the best season. If you’re able to get away in early June, you might be lucky enough to score an over-water bungalow without busting your budget.

3. Antalya. According to Budget Travel magazine, the Turkish Riviera is a beautiful European destination that comes without an excessive price tag. Hotel rates have dropped by nearly 25 per cent in the past year, and as a result, it’s become a must-visit playground for money savvy travellers.

4. Sardinia, Italy – The Mediterranean Island of Sardinia has long been a favorite summer stop for Italians, but it’s stunning beaches, growing culinary scene, and historical monuments have helped make it the top summer destination for international travelers.

5. Algarve, Portugal – The Algarve region in southern Portugal is home to some of Europe’s most spectacular coastline and is still one of the continent’s most affordable vacation destinations. While coastal cities like Portimao and Albufeira are popular among package vacationers, Algarve’s real treasure is the endless miles of seaside cliffs dotted with spectacular grottoes, hidden beaches, seaside cafés, and dazzling underwater caves.

Romantic Anniversary Gifts For Women

 photo christmas-gifts-for-girls-chic-factor2_zpsc43e555f.jpg

Buying anniversary gifts for your wife or girlfriend can be a difficult challenge. This year, steer away from the typical chocolates, flowers, and lingerie, and go with something a little different. Consider these suggestions for romantic gifts that the woman in your life is sure to love.

 photo lacostegirlsnightin_zps8ffc239e.jpg

1. Perfume

Nice, name-brand perfumes can be an expensive purchase, so if your wife rarely splurges on extravagant scents, tell her how much you love her by purchasing something from Fragrance Villa or another fragrance store. Get something you smell and it’ll be a gift for you too every time she wears it!

2. Keurig Coffee Maker

Fragrances are nice, but there’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh coffee in the morning. When it’s just two people in the house, making an entire pot of coffee in the morning may seem like overkill. Simplify things by getting her a Keurig, which lets her make a single cup of coffee at a time. The different coffee and tea packets you can use with the machine give you virtually any coffee flavor you want, and all you have to do is load in the packet, put your coffee cup under the spout, and wait for the machine to brew it for you.

3. Spa Bath Set

Does she need to pamper herself a little? Purchase a really nice bath set for her and she’ll be able to. Items like bubble bath, bath beads, and scented bath candles can give her a spalike experience right from the comfort of her own home. Many stores that sell perfume also sell bath sets, so you can be sure to pick a bath or candle scent she’ll love! Toss a gorgeous fluffy bathrobe into the mix, and she’ll be able to go from a soothing soak to a delightful evening in.

4. Personalized Jewelry Box

Jewelry is a typical Valentine’s Day and anniversary gift, so why not think outside the box by thinking of the box itself? Get an easy-to-organize jewelry box and have her name written on the outside and a personal romantic message written inside the lid. It’s both a functional gift and a romantic one. If she doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry, consider getting her a larger box for her to store her fragrances and perfumes in.

5. Mix CD

The most meaningful gifts don’t always have to be pricey. Sometimes homemade gifts can be just as sweet. Pull together a list of songs that have meant something to you both as a couple, or love songs that put into words how you feel about her. Play it together when you give it to her and spend the evening slow dancing in the living room. Hearing those romantic lyrics and knowing you’re thinking them about her will melt her heart.

HIGHLIGHTS – A NEWBIES GUIDE

 photo Mens_hair_Style_Trend13_zps2ae84dad.jpg

So, do you fancy a change of look? Maybe you’re considering lightening and brightening up your hair. If you’ve never had highlights before and you feel a bit nervous, fear not, ROCK PAMPER SCISSORS presents the first-timers guide to highlights for all you newbies.

Highlights are achieved by applying streaks of colour in the form of a dye or paste, usually containing peroxide or a bleaching agent to thin sections of the hair, evenly around the head. The effect can be dramatic or subtle depending on the colour of the base and the contrasting highlight; it’s a popular alternative to a full, all-over dye which is also known as single process colour. If you have a good natural hair colour that doesn’t wash out your skin tone, highlights can be a great way to simply enhance and brighten up your look; alternatively, highlights can also be applied to pre-dyed hair. As explained in this article, http://www.sofeminine.co.uk/hair/lowlights-vs-highlights-f89948.html, highlights are a great way to add depth, texture and accents to your hair.

You can opt to have highlights applied to just the top layers of your hair; this is known as a ‘half-head’ and is generally cheaper and quicker than having highlights throughout your hair (whole-head), which is really only necessary if you have very layered hair or wear your hair up a lot.

Peter Lamas describes the different techniques used to apply highlights, the most common of which is with foils. The sections of hair are placed on a strip of foil, brushed with the lightener or colour and then folded into the foil to develop. For very short hair, sometimes a cap is used which has small holes through which strands of hair are pulled and then coloured.

So, which highlight shades will work best for your hair? According to totalbeauty.com, it’s important to know if cool or warm tones work best with your natural colouring. Work it out by holding swatches of silver and gold against your hair to see which looks best.

Although it is possible to highlight your own hair at home, we at ROCK PAMPER SCISSORS think it’s advisable to go to a salon for your first time. You can discuss the best shades for you with a professional colourist, watch the application techniques in action and ask for tips on ways and products to maintain your beautiful, newly highlighted mane.
