Change A Life

A brilliant concept and a well balanced combination of luxury and ethical, the Midomo bracelet is the perfect way to give something back!

Midomobracelet
Called the Midomo, this limited edition piece, celebrates the launch of a revolutionary water purifier for developing countries. Reflecting Alex?s intricate, feminine style, each Midomo bracelet fully funds the production of a Midomo water unit, a device capable of purifying (whilst transporting) 50 litres of water ? enough for an African family to live on for a day, whilst reducing the risk of water related disease such as Malaria.
Clean water is a pre-requisite for reducing the spread of water-borne diseases and it is well noticed that the prevalence of water-borne diseases can be greatly reduced by the provision of clean drinking water. 

A fashionable, ethical buy for yourself, the Midomo bracelet is set to become the must-have item for 2011!

Summer Makeup

Summer may be short but summer makeup has a tall order. It should be weightless but withstand the heat, make a difference but be barely there, look fabulous for today and—whenever possible—protect your skin for the long-haul.

Some of you might be hesitant to try this out, but trust me: There are ways to rock this trend, stay warm, and look great all at the same time. I've done a bit of research and put together a guide to wearing these

Tips and Tricks for Wearing Patterned Tights or Leggings

For the most flattering look, it's often best to choose patterns with small graphics such as tiny polka dots or little flowers.

Unless you're very confident keep the rest of your outfit simple.
Graphic tights or leggings look great tucked into boots but try them with pumps, too, if you're daring! 
Tights_busy
 If you're self conscious about your legs, try letting patterned tights peek out just between your boots and a ¾ lengths skirt or this seasons thigh high boots and a mini skirt.

If you're mixing prints stay within the same color family (i.e. green check with green polka dots) or go with contrasting colors.

And most importantly have fun!
