Awesome Timepieces by Peter Cuderman

When Peter Cuderman set out on his quest to find a luxury watch, he never expected to be so taken back by the whole experience. After being frustrated, he decided to do something about it. The young B-school graduate left his cushy desk job in J.P. Morgan’s Private Bank and opened the doors to his business venture. He created Washington Mount Vernon, an American company that produces top quality watches. The inspiration for the company was from a watch discovered in the late 1800’s from the Washington Watch Company. Using a contemporary approach and inspiration from the Washington Watch Company, the first line, The 1776, was produced with a classic and timeless touch.

An automatic watch; the timepiece comes with an ETA 2892 movement engraved beautifully with the company seal and the all seeing eye, bearing each owner’s serial number. The hour and hand minutes are small scale modeled hands of the Washington Memorial. While the watch presents a simplistic look, each hour and the WASHINGTON name are raised with a 1.5 mm height and .25 mm thick polished index.

The package wouldn’t be complete without a box. The full sized treasure chest replica is a special reminder of the olden days of watchmaking. One of the company’s short term goals are to bring production from Switzerland to the United States. Each watch also comes with a certificate of authenticity, sealed in a wax envelope.

Washington Mount Vernon launched their Kickstarter campaign on May 2 and will be up and running for 43 days. You can pre-order a Washington 1776 for $575, roughly $700 of their suggested retail price.

HIGHLIGHTS – A NEWBIES GUIDE

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.

Bomber jackets are in fashion no matter what the color is but neon colored ones are perfect for summer. Another trend that not many men might like but is totally in fashion is the printed shirt, suit, and tank top, specifically those with tropical floral prints. Sorts of online shop has several floral shirts available at affordable prices. The tie dye is not just for hippies or artsy men but is probably the coolest print to pull off this season. For men who like wearing suits, stiff power suits are out. The new tailoring emphasizes fluid lines, softer fabrics, longer jackets, and looser pants.

Bermuda shorts also swept runways this season. Some even wear it with cowboy boots. But this trend is something that takes a little getting used to. As for shoes, bright trainers are very cool. Also making a comeback are brogue shoes, a low-heeled shoe or boot traditionally characterised by multiple piece, strong leather uppers with decorative perforations or broguing and indentions along the pieces’ visible edges. Guys can shop for some stylish brogue shoes from Zalora available in different designs and colors. Last but not the least, the color of the season is blue. It does not matter what shade it is, as long as it is blue.

The Popularity of Online Shopping


goodonlineshoppingsites.net

Online shopping is becoming more and more popular in the US, this is according to a goodonlineshoppingsites.net infographic. Apparently the best shopping deals can be found online, this is according to an estimated 80% of American shoppers. Different methods are used by shoppers, as evidenced by National Retail Federation’s survey that 5-7% of adult Americans use their mobile phone to differentiate prices while shopping. Shopping on tablets is also on the rise since it was reported that in Feb. 2013, 5 billion minutes were spent shopping. It was also discovered that an average of $274 was spent in the first quarter of 2013 by a typical desktop user shopping online. No wonder that an estimated 289 billion US Dollars in revenue was recorded in 2012 brought about by online shopping.

I recommend these 2 online shops where I usually shop my clothes and other necessity things in the house. ZaloraPH is the great online shop that sells apparels for both Bettys and dudes. Also, LazadaPH is a must check too, as you are more into home decors and appliances.

Might someone over there might get interested to know on what these Kpop idols often wears most of the time especially the idols or celebrities they’d often look up too, right? today, let me share with you this piece of accessory, an cap perhaps that this guy named Kikwang, B2st member, wearing on the photo on top. Actually, I see a bunch of Snapback already of the same thing, design wise, about this Addicted Snob cap but I think the brand name, Snob, was the one most consider and demand today since most celebrities are fond of wearing it. Have you seen your fave idols recently wearing the same cap or anything pieces from the brand Snob already? I think, snob brand is kinda popular today in Korea? what do you think?

Since I was a guy that has a lot of spare time and due to my curiosity about the brand.. LOL I’ve decided to check on the brand’s main site and I’ve found out that the guy kikwang wears on the top photos has an price of 67,310KRW and indeed! SNOB is an local brand in Korea. But no worries. Because you can still buy the same cap or anything pieces within the brand by just checking their online store here: gvg.co.kr . Alright, that is the only information that I can give out here since the brand, Snod, is not yet affiliated on this site. hahaha They must see this write up and consider me as their influencer. ahah just send over some pieces on my way please???

Okay, that will be all for now  and I hope you’ll keep on checking me here for more fashion and news updates regarding with some kpop fashion as well brands and labels new in collections. Thank you so much!
