What I Love About Winter

Three months of brutal cold winter chill had past. It was the coldest in 16 years in our neck of the woods. Now I am up for Cozy Winters Review before I look forward for a beautiful, hot summer.

What I love about winter is the cozy outfits- trench and leather jackets, ankle boots, long boots, scarves and the like. We couldn’t get to sport this kind of outfits had it not been for the cold season winter brings.

I am your tropical kind of girl but I warmly welcome winter for all the reasons stated above.

Life is a Beach

My brothers had been performing for a couple of months now at the beautiful Island of Boracay. I was told they were happy that pace ilok is an essential part of their performance on stage each night.

It is undeniably true that members of the Kuerdas Band had immensely enjoyed the sun, white sand beaches of the Island, and the bunch of tourists that flock their show at night time.

It Does Matter

While we live in the other part of the world where it is beginning to get colder and winter is just around the corner once more, I can not help but recount the happy times in spring.

I come from a tropical country so a warmer weather is always looked forward to. One of the things we planned of doing when a warmer weather is fast approaching is doing outdoor activities like camping and picnic with friends or simply just trying to be sporty by going back to my only physical activity since I have settled down in Australia- walking.

Along with that is gearing myself up for proper outfits such as AvidMax Outfitters. Getting comfortable sporting this outfit is a must especially for my outdoor and walking activities. It makes the activities even more fun and enjoyable once geared up with comfortable outfits. I must say it does matter.

Not a Permanent Thing

My brothers know what are the best mixers that could go along with them whenever they perform on stage. It becomes pretty handy because my brothers know when it comes to musical gadgets. They may not know everything that I know for sure that they are adept of the basics.

Music has not only become their passion but their bread and butter. It may not be something permanent but they are happy on what they do and what they have achieved so far.

A Cool Clothing Accessory

Know your partner’s style? Buying them a good quality piece of clothing or accessory is very personal and thoughtful – it means you’ve paid attention to their style and know their size. Plus, they can be proud to wear something you picked out for them! Check out online stores like www.universalstore.com.au to browse through clothing in lots of different styles and sizes – there’s sure to be something online to suit your partner. For him, some ideas are a nice tie and cufflinks, a smart dress shirt, a watch, or a classy belt. For her, why not try a beautiful necklace, cute dress, or an adorable hat? Not only will it make them happy, you’ll feel a swell of pride every time you see your partner dressed in something you handpicked.

Cologne or Perfume

Yes, this is one of the more stock-standard, fall-back type gifts, but that doesn’t mean it’s not great! If you’re really stuck for gift ideas, beautiful colognes and perfumes will make your other half feel really special. After all, this is something they can put on before a classy night out or even a Valentine’s dinner with you! When it comes to cologne or perfume, it’s got to be packaged elegantly. Steer away from ‘trashy’ fragrances. Classy brands like Ralph Lauren and Chanel all do fantastic fragrances, so there’ll be plenty to choose from.

An Experience

Sometimes, the best gifts can’t be held as they aren’t material things. An experience can live on in your loved ones memory just as long as a gift can sit on their desk… or longer! Popular ideas for her are spa treatment vouchers, massage vouchers, or something you can do together – Gold Class movie tickets are sure to go down a treat! If you’ve got the budget for it, a hot air balloon ride is a Valentine’s present neither of you will forget! For him, there are lots of great experiences you can buy: a ride in a racing car, a surfing lesson, a laser tag skirmish… it really depends on your partner’s interests.

So, if you’re tearing your hair out over Valentine’s Day gift ideas, keep that head of hair nice and full and follow this guide instead! Your partner will be jumping for joy on Feb 14th and you can both have a relaxing day together, free from gift-giving stress!

The 5 Essential Garments for Your Man’s Wardrobe this Season

Is your man’s wardrobe in need of a bit of sprucing up? A good place to start when it comes to freshening up your man’s wardrobe is to get him a few good, essential pieces that can be worn with a multitude of other things that he already has. Some versatile clothes can be worn for more than one dress code and occasion – these are the clothing items you’ll want to start with so that he’s looking suave all year round without having to buy a whole new wardrobe!

Here are five essential garments that you should start with if you’re doing a little work on your man’s wardrobe.

1. A Denim Jacket

Has your man got a nice denim jacket? No, that doesn’t mean one that’s “artfully distressed” (i.e. full of holes or ripped). It means a nice, well-fitting, one-coloured denim jacket in consistent light blue, dark blue, black or white. If he doesn’t have one, this is the item you should start with. Paired with a nice shirt, like one of these from Politix, a jacket becomes the ultimate kind of neat street wear. It can also be worn with almost anything for a smart look.

2. A White Button-Up Shirt

This may seem simple, but it’s deceptively so. You’d be surprised how many men don’t actually have this in their wardrobe. A well-fitting, crisp, long-sleeved, button-up shirt is the most versatile item your man could possibly have; it can be worn casually, to work, under a suit, or just as is with a nice pair of jeans. If he doesn’t have one of these in his wardrobe (or if his current one has a few stains on it) then this item of clothing should be near the top of your shopping list.

3. A Pair of Well-Fitting, Dark Chinos

Chinos are a great item of clothing – not as casual as a pair of jeans, but not as black tie as suit pants. They’re the perfect in-between pants for smart casual and can be paired with endless combinations of jackets, shirts, belts and shoes. This is definitely an essential piece for the wardrobe.

4. Leather Boots

Looking at your man’s footwear, it’s probably time for something other than the standard sneakers and tattered old sandals. Every man should have a nice, polished pair of black leather shoes in his wardrobe – they can be worn with pretty much any pants for any occasion (except for the gym or the beach!)

5. A Good Quality Grey or Navy Blue Sweatshirt

Sweatshirts can actually look very smart during a cold weather when paired with a nice white crew-neck shirt, fitted dark jeans and new sneakers. Every man should keep this item of clothing in his jacket as it’s very versatile (it can be paired with shorts, jeans or chinos). Best of all, it’s a very comfortable and relaxing item to wear!

If your man’s wardrobe is in need of some work, start by presenting him with these five essential items – they’re very versatile and will have your man looking stylish innno time.

Legends They Are

My brothers are legend when it comes to music instruments store. They know which store to go to for specific gadgets. They have been in a band for more than a decade so that should say it all.

My youngest brother also has his own sound system business. Being fresh into the industry, he has to learn the ropes. It was not too difficult for him as being a member of the band helped him tremendously when it comes to marketing and networking.

Despite the Odds

If there are gadgets that are on Hot Deals, I would definitely give my brothers a heads up. As you very well know they are in a band and it has been their bread and butter for years. That made them a sucker for any musical instrument and gadgets that is essential for the band.

I must say that Kuerdas Band continues to thrive in the regional music scene despite so many odds. I wish one day they will get that big break that they have been aspiring for.
