About Fred Perry Polo Shirts

The interesting thing about Mr Perry is that he started in the fashion apparel industry in an unusual manner. Fred used to use gauze to wrap around his wrist in order to help with the perspiration from his wrist from getting onto the tennis racquet handle. In he late 1940’s, Mr. Perry was approached by a former Austrian footballer by the name of Tibby Wegner with an idea for marketing a sweatband to wear around the wrist with Fred’s name on it. According to Fred Perry’s autobiography, the first of these wrist bands or sweatbands were made out of a bath towel type of material and weighed a ton.With some later improvements in materials, the redesigned sweatbands launched a business that we now know of as Fred Perry Sportswear.

With some good marketing and persuading the top tennis players of those days to wear the sweatbands on the court, the … Read the rest

The Andis irons use a combination of tourmaline crystals and ceramic plates that straightens hair super quick and with minimal damage. This enables hair to be soft, ultra smooth and shiny without frizz, unlike non ceramic straightens that can damage hair from overheating of the hair cuticles, causing them to dry out. The Tourmaline and ceramic combination also preserves natural oils and improves moisture retention in the hair, resulting in a sleek and glossy finish.

The Andis irons are a versatile hair straightener thanks to its twenty variable heat settings. The adjustable temperature makes them suitable for straightening all hair types, for example fine hair only requires a low temperature for a straight result – using the highest temperature when not needed will certainly damage your hair.

Finding Caterer

The Perfect Caterer Works For You

One of the things I’ve seen from bad caterers for years is their insistence that they do things their way. “I’ve been in the catering business for 24 years and this is the way it is always done, so this is the way we’re going to do your wedding because it’s a tried and true method.” I’ve heard versions of that throughout my life – but the real caterers, the ones that you want to have serve your guests, are willing to do the things that you want. If you start hearing language such as “this is the way I always do things,” just walk out the door.

The Perfect Caterer Has Options

There are many talented caterers out there that make great food, but the problem is that they make only one or two different recipes. So how do you find out if … Read the rest

Eco Budget Cotton Bags

Make Shoes Last Longer

Practice Shoe Rotation

Never wear the same pair two days in a row. Given a chance to dry out, your shoes will last twice as long.

How Shoe Trees Can Help

Your shoes were built on a wooden last which molded the leather into shape. Shoe trees can keep them that way. Cedar trees work the best, for the wood from which they are made absorbs both moisture and foot odor. Insert the larger portion well into the toe box and push on the metal stem to press the tree snugly into the shoe.

How to Waterproof Your Shoes

It’s best to waterproof your shoes right out of the box. First, get the right product for your shoes’ material. Remove shoelaces and clean the shoes thoroughly. Now, have at it.

Handcrafted Purses

Mix and Match

Mixing and matching patterns adds visual interest to your handmade purses, but avoid overdoing to to prevent fashion disasters.

Design your purses with your present wardrobe in mind. While you may love the personalized handbags that feature funky colors or outrageous designs, make sure that they won’t completely clash with what you have.

Use common colors like browns, blues or pinks to visually tie different patterns together. For example, fabric handbags that feature hot pink squares can be paired with a shirt that has the same colored stripes.

Buy a tote and use it occasionally as a back up diaper bag. While you may not want to use it for this purpose all the time, buying your accessories with more than one job in mind will help you save money.
