Post Punk and Today’s Punk

Fashion trends come and go. What was once considered hot soon comes around; however, they say that true classics never die. Punk clothing has a distinct look. It’s rough, yet polished. The young may not associate post punk of the 70’s and 80’s with the punk that is heard today, but that is when punk made its mark. Much of the music used sounds from different genres, but it was unique in its own right. It gave rise to what is considered Alternative today. Bands like Joy Division, Wire, The Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees paved the way for what is listened to today. These bands made a fashion statement as well.

men’s leather jacketsBoth punk music and style of clothing was specific, and it still is. The style of clothing in that time was androgynous. Men and women wore heavy makeup. It’s more common to see various hair colors today; however, the haircuts were largely the same. The infamous hairdo worn by Brian Smith of The Cure made a recent comeback and the recent female fauxhawk phenomenon that could be first seen by Annabella Lwin, and others, of Bow Wow Wow. Bands that were around in the 70’s and 80’s wore tight tattered clothing. However, it was common for some bands to wear suits. Black has always been associated with punk; although, leather is more common today.

When punk first came out, people had to make their own clothing. Some things could be bought from thrift stores; however, much of what was worn had to torn and tattered. Patches and other accessories were sewn on. Today, several stores offer punk clothing. Punk jackets and other gear can be found easily.

The Things We Do For Love – Photography Style

Valentine's Day 2015

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner leaving many of us to scramble to find the perfect card, or to plan the perfect romantic encounter. But while this holiday is universally associated with all things Love – how we celebrate Valentine’s Day has probably evolved over the years.

Valentine's Day 2015

At it’s purest form, Valentine’s Day is about expressing unconditional love for the most important people in our lives before materialism had a chance to slowly seep in. But when was the last time the significant people in your life really liked getting a homemade present?

Valentine's Day 2015

In elementary school, Valentine’s Day is about sharing equally so that everyone feels special. Usually we were encouraged to give a card to everyone in the class – of course, that never stopped you from adding a crayon note to “meet me at the swings” on the bottom of the card to your first TRUE love!

Valentine's Day 2015

As the years go by we transition from hearts and flowers to jewelry and romantic dinners. Valentine’s Days become more lavish and involved as they go by. Then we get lucky enough to find someone truly special – Strip Chocolate™ anyone?

Valentine's Day 2015

But when your one and only is a stock photographer, every aspect of your Valentine tradition takes on a new meaning. Valentine’s Day morphs from celebrating the idea of love into the things you do for love … of your photographer!

There is no such thing as a candlelit dinner anymore. Romantic dining gets interrupted for photo ops time and time again.

Not even the food is spared so I hope you don’t mind a little cold seafood for supper.

Your significant other leaning in close and whispering, “Let’s slip into something more comfortable” does not mean what it used to before they first picked up a camera.

Breakfast in Bed

Heck, even the morning after breakfast in bed can’t escape the focus of a lens.

And while most of the world will spend one-day celebrating love – and then return to normal life – no truer words were written than the old adage “With You, Everyday is Valentine’s Day” when it comes to the motivated photographer. Regardless if it’s reenacting Christmas in July or interrupting a deep sleep in January, your photographer is looking for a 365-day a year commitment of love from you.

So if you are the better half of a photography couple, you have my deepest sympathies. If you are the photographer of the family– take this holiday to stop and appreciate all the things they do in the name of love for your craft. After all, they prove everyday how much they really love you!

On Sale: Nockers and Goya Chocolates

The other day when my mother and sister went to town to buy viand for lunch, they also brought few chocolates with them when they return home.  It turns out those chocolates are on sale, I am quite in disbelief because I seldom see stores in town that goes on sale.

Guess why the store is on sale? The second chocolate that is for free is near on expiring in few months and instead of throwing them when they expired, they put them on sale. Well I guess is not too bad, isn’t it?

A Shave Can Be a Royal Treatment

Experience more of a outstanding shave when you use quality products that are specially designed and crafted essentials that are superior to most brands on the market. They are paraben free and are meant to make you feel fresher, cleaner, and thus present a more attractive appearance at the same time.

A super smooth shave is a much desired outcome, and you can enjoy the shaving experience when a revolutionary foamless cream is combined with witch hazel extract and shea butter that will make any necessary repairs to your face from problems such as razor burn and also moisturize while you shave.

It is an easy process to wash your face with warm water, use just a quarter-sized amount of the cream massaged onto your wet face, go ahead and shave, and then rinse with cool water.

A special unscented hand-crafted soap, or one with the scent of peppermint or sandalwood if preferred, is the best suggestion for those men who have sensitive skin. The rich lather has no detergent agents but is loaded with powerful nourishing moisturizers such as olive, palm, coconut and wheat germ oils as well as Vitamin E. Also included is rosemary oleoresin extract, a natural antioxidant that guards cells against free radicals. The procedure is to slightly wet a shave brush before rubbing it over the soap until it becomes foamy, wash your face with warm water, apply the foam, shave, and rinse with cool water.

Know that these unique shaves can make you feel like a prince or a king!

What We Predict Will Be the Best Apps of 2015

The last few years have seen an incredible range of apps taking over our lives.

Who would have believed just a short time ago that we would soon be able to do so much with our phones and tablets thank to these apps?

The good news is that the fact that the app revolution is far from over. In fact, we believe that it is only just beginning.  The following are some of the apps we predict will rock our world in 2015.

Smart Home Apps

We are still waiting to see those house cleaning robots and mechanical butlers we were promised all those years ago, aren´t we? Until we get them it seems as though we are going to have to make do with apps that let us get things done around the house more smartly. You can already use your mobile device to switch on your alarm, turn on your lights and manage your fridge´s contents. There is a good chance that 2015 becomes the year in which we finally begin to control more of our homes using apps. Can you imagine using your phone to vacuum your floor, turn on the shower and open your garage? There are lots of interesting ways in which apps could make boring daily chores that bit more interesting. Maybe you could soon cook the dinner while you are work and chill that bottle of wine to the perfect temperature while you are still sitting in traffic

Apps 2015

Short Term Fashion Apps

The ease with which mobile apps can now be developed means that they can now be looked on as being more short term than before. This means that they now lend themselves more to temporary use before being discarded or updated. A good example could come in the shape of the fashion world. It would be no surprise to see them now used to showcase a specific season´s trends or to help you to plan your summer wardrobe. There is now little need for a brand to think about using just one overall app for everything. It now makes more sense for them to reach out to their customers on what it is that concerns or interest them at this specific moment in time.

More Personalised Apps

We have already started to see apps gets more personalised and targeted, a trend we expect to see continue in 2015. For instance, if you are going to a shopping centre you could download the app on your way and make a list of what you are after. Once you arrive you would get updates or messages telling you exactly where to find what you are after at the best price. We no longer want generic apps that aren´t particularly useful to us. Instead, we want only the most relevant information that helps us out right here and now.  There is no reason to think that this won´t happen soon. When it does it will make our mobile devices even more useful to us than they already are.

Shopping in a Thrift Store

Shopping for second hand clothes is very economical decision if you are cutting your budgets to expenses that you really don’t need too often.  Since my mother discovers the joy of shopping in a thrift store, she occasionally visits when the shop is on sale to look around for cheap clothes that are still in good condition.

One day, while we are in town we stopped by at the thrift just to check what’s on sale or if they have still items that could fit our taste.  I look around and found shorts on my liking, I have no decent clothes left since most of my clothes are already too small for me, and they already hand down to my younger sister.  I was tempted to buy few pair of shorts, they are way better than buying new shorts that are made of cheap fabric.

Christmas Carol Tradition

The other day while I am cooking our dinner I heard a sound of tambourine and a Christmas carol, it turns out someone is carolling at the nearby store. Carolling is common during holiday season I remember when I am younger when Ber months started there’s already a lot of carollers at night but lately I have noticed they are nowhere to be found, it turns out carolling now a days needs a permit to avoid being scammed by people who carolled for personal gain, contrary to their claim that it is for an organization or church.

Probably obtaining a permit was a good decision but I have noticed that the old tradition of Christmas is slowly fading, the love and joy of Christmas season is now becoming business rather than sharing. Well a  guitar need a keeley compressor to obtain good music and the sound will flow freely and inspire people and so people need to be polish to be a good person.

Winning the Inexpensive Travel Game

Getting the best travel deal has become one of the biggest games in town. The airline and hotel industries have been hammered by a wide variety of websites that do web based research and come up with lots of ways to save you money. As quickly as ways to save money are found out, companies change them or find other ways to charge up the price. So you have to stay on your toes. Here are some of the latest and greatest ways to save money.

Register For Refunds At Yapa.com

The price of airline tickets usually go up as the day of the flight gets nearer. But sometimes flights don’t fill and prices drop at the last minute. Most airlines and online travel agencies will refund you the difference between the price you paid and the current price in travel vouchers or travel credits. Yapa.com will track the fares for you and send you an email or a Tweet when the price drops. Yapa will also show you how to collect your refund.

Overseas Budget Airlines

You may have heard about Ryan Air and some of the other local budget airlines operating around Europe and Asia. Their prices can be less than half of what major airlines charge. There are more budget carriers popping up all the time. WhichBudget.com can plan an entire trip using regional budget airlines. Enter your starting and ending point and they’ll give you a list of small airlines, many of which you have probably never heard of.

Traveler

Get Airfare Watchdog On Your Side

If you can keep your plans a little loose, Airfare Watchdog has a number of services for catching rock bottom prices. Their members sign up with airlines and collect promotional codes and other deals that can be passed on to other Airfare Watchdog users. Because users are members of airline websites, they get advance notice of fare sales that sometimes provide deep discounts.

When Should You Buy Your Ticket?

Knowing when to buy your ticket is key to getting the best deal. Bing Travel has a nifty price predictor that does a pretty good job of predicting which way prices are going to go. If you happen to be traveling to one of the cities they are willing to make a prediction about, it will also tell you how much confidence it has in it’s prediction.

Start As Early As Possible

You should start your fair search early, take your time, and have fun with it. One great place to start is Kayak.com, which specializes in super-cheap fares. If you can, give Kayak a range of dates and times to play with and see what it comes up with. Then try their explore tool. Put your starting point and how much you want to spend into it, and it will display a map showing how far you can go.

If you and your company want to host a meeting or have a Party in New York City, Hornblower can host the whole affair on a private yacht while you cruise around the island.

Don’t forget to read travel blogs while you are planning your trip. Things change so fast in the travel and vacation world that up to the minute advice and information can save you lots. It doesn’t hurt to leave replies to blogs that you read filling them in on interesting things that you have found.
