Who says dressing for autumn and/or winter always has to be drab and boring and lifeless? Gone are those days when dull shades of black and grey were the only colours we had in our wardrobes because the summer was over. The Topshop Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection only goes to proof that you can be vibrant, stylish and rock some colour AND still keep warm in the same outfit. That’s why we love’em! The new AW 2011 collection features trends such as ankle-grazers,novelty knits, pencil skirts and glam rock furs. Here’s a sneak preview of the collection. You can also visit Topshop for more information or to shop for cool outfits that will keep you cozy.
Enjoy this brilliant note which I found online. I did NOT write it. But whoever did IS a genius!

Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the Flower And Jewelry Applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0 and FOOTBALL 4.1.
Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.
Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
What can I do?

I was reading an article about unusual art today when I came across this impressive sculpture by Patrick Dougherty and decided to look him up. Patrick Dougherty is a stickwork and branch-bender extraordinaire. what I would call a ‘branch master’. I was absolutely awestruck by his breathtaking sculptures. I was so impressed that I just had to share some pictures of his amazing sculptures on here.
Combining his carpentry skills with his love of nature, Patrick Dougherty began to learn about primitive techniques of building and to experiment with tree saplings as construction material. Beginning about 1980 with small works, fashioned in his backyard, he quickly moved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental site-specific installations that require sticks by the truckload. To date he has built over two hundred such massive sculptures all over the world. Here are some of his sculptures.
I only started using Soap & Glory products about six months ago but I must admit I am addicted to the core! Soap & Glory makes the best skincare and cosmetic products that I have tried so far. The first product I tried was the Clean on Me creamy shower gel. I have not been able to stop using that shower gel ever since!
Soap & Glory is proof that beauty products can be beautifully packaged, affordable and do what they promise all at the same time. The Soap & Glory brand is a vintage-inspired beauty product range. It was started by Bliss spa founder Marcia Kilgore. It is popular for its pink and flirty-feel packaging and cheeky pun-intended product names such as Glow Job, Clean of England, The Firminator and Sexy Mother Pucker just to name a few.
WHAT I LOVE about Soap & Glory …
- Denims are about the only item of clothing that would match anything in your closet. everyone needs a pair of denim jeans for that day when it’s so impossible to decide what they want to wear. The exciting thing about denims is you can pair them with almost any outfit that you can possibly think of.
The Denim Trouser is the first essential for any wardrobe. They could be wide, white washed or distressed and still make you look fab. They are very versatile and you could easily turn them from a casual day look to a dressy night look.
Ini Edo wows in this pair of 'booty' hugging denims that just make you want to grab one of your own.
Kim Kardashian rock black well (aside from the wardrobe malfunction).
Seems like black is the new yellow for the judges on the hit show Project Runway which is to return to the big screen come July the 29th 2011. Season 9 of the show features up to 20 new aspiring designers which is the highest number of contestants the show has ever started with. It also features judges Nina Garcia, Michael Kors, Heidi Klum and Kim Kardashian as a guest judge. I personnally am addicted to this show and absolutely can’t wait for it to begin. Hope the contestants can ‘Make it work!’
The judges rock the black theme on the shooting of a new episode.

Colour blocking has for the most part been a no go fashion area. That’s because most people who dare to colour have ended up looking drastically like a poor imitation of a rainbow. But this summer you don’t need to worry about that! The secrets to colour blocking have been unlocked! Fashion experts (like us, lol) have found a way to mix contrasting colours to make them look appropriately eye catching.With stars like Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Rihanna leading the trend, colour blocking is obviously this summer’s MUST DARE!
- The first thing to know about colour blocking is ALWAYS choose colours from different hues. Choosing colours from the same hue or shade does not work because one shade (usually the stronger shade) tends to wash out the other lighter one. Choose two strong colours from different hues. For example, …
This summer, keep your look fresh and updated with a pop of colour. Go bright and bold. It could be a bold outfit like the Maxi dress in the picture below. Notice how she tones down the brightness of the outfit by wearing nude shoes and little or no accessories.
