What’s unique? Hot pink sandals and heel less!


Girls have always loved pink. It has been a choice of color that defines and strengthens the identity of being a female. The color pink is interpreted as a color that neutralizes energy from the mixture of red and white it gives balance to the aggressiveness and fullness, it is even used before in prison cells to gradually reduce erratic behavior among prisoners. However, how much red is included in the color would suggest a different meaning as well. As we all know there are different kinds of pink colors, starting from the ordinary colors: regular pink lightened in the version of baby pink and darkened in fuchsia pink. There are even lots of varieties of pink coming out from hot pink, electric pink, carnation pink and a lot more.  With babies the cute baby pink colors would do but for women who would like to look hot and stunning in their girly outfit would probably choose hot pink over all the other hues.

If you’re a pink fan and you would like to show a hip and flashy but elegant style Guiseppe Zanotti’s new design of heels would sure be perfect for you. The pair is made in Italy with genuine leather as the soles, giving you certainty that these are nice and durable finds, it also has silver hardware to add fab and style, a suede upper material that would be perfect for any occasion adding glamour to your feet as you wear them and what’s cool about these heels is that it comes with adjustable ankle straps that will help you fix your heels comfortably and the way you want them. Aside from its striking hot pink color another thing unique about these pumps, that would surely bring attention to you when you walk the halls, is that it is heel-less! People might at first just notice the color of your pumps but eventually would be wondering where could the heel be, fascinating enough the design would still help you walk comfortably without feeling any effort to keep you on your toes. The sole where your toes and part of the feet lies is made thicker and a bit longer so it would support you evenly as well.

If you would want to bring out the pink tigress in you go and get a Guiseppe Zanotti heel less sandal!

Funky and Trendy Celebrity Inspired Costume Ideas for the Halloween Season

Amber Rose Slash costume

Amber Rose Slash costume

Halloween is just around the corner and to spice up this once a year event, it would be cool to prep up parties with funky costumes. However, thinking of unique costumes might be a chore for some people. To gauge the latest costume trends, celebrities are the best setters. They often wear the finest outfits for a specific celebration. As for this month, being either funny or scary is on top of their lists.

Take for example Amber Rose. The feisty lady who became popular as Kanye West’s ex was seen donning a “Slash” costume. Kanye’s ex enjoyed the night as she wore a rocker like outfit that would match the infamous guitarist’s get up. The androgynous outfit is created through simple clothing basics, which are found almost in any female wardrobe. To look like Slash, all that are needed would include leather skinnies, a biker jacket and worn-in band tee. Do not forget the curly hair to cover one’s face. If the Slash outfit is not for the girlie type, then the Honey Boo Boo costume is the fitting choice. A simple frilly dress together with a glittery crown is all that is needed. Coupled with some shiny fairy like shoes and voila! Any female will look like a grown up Honey Boo Boo. Fergie was seen wearing a Honey Boo Boo costume. She does look like the grown up version.

Meanwhile, Doutzen Kroes prefers to be a femme fatale as she wore Catwoman’s latest outfit. It is similar to the original one worn by Anne Hathaway from the recent movie. Men would surely drool if they see some women in such outfit therefore it is highly suggested. They usually like Catwoman’s air of mystery and of course, males would love to see their favorite comic character come to life. However, to have a perfect costume, which looks much like the original; women are suggested to visit some specialty stores. Improvising this outfit will not work unless the one who weaved it is truly a pro. Finally, another great idea is to don the outfit of a sexy female referee. Sexy shorts and a striped shirt would do the trick. As a twist, women may pair the shorts with long and colored socks.

Ways to Vanish Age Spots

Treating your Age SpotsBecause of the harmful sunrays these days, facial age spots had become prevalent. For women however, this is an aesthetic disadvantage especially for those who are beauty conscious. Therefore, it is necessary to know some tips, which may be used to battle the damaging rays of the sun and the negative effects of facial age spots.

According to most medical experts, women are never too young to take care of their skin. They should do this to prevent melasma, wrinkles, particularly age spots. As a suggestion, they may take broad-spectrum sun protection on a daily basis. Sunscreen is the best choice for this and experts recommend the use of SPF 30.  On the other hand, women who love the outdoors and are fond of open-air activities should apply SPF 40. If the dark spots were not prevented, then other methods are employed to fight the signs of aging. Clients are tasked to find the retinoic acid ingredient in lotions, anti aging creams and masks. This promotes the fast cell turnovers. Retinoic acid can lift the free cells more quickly than it used to, prior to the onset of wrinkles and age spots. Based on the recent research findings, this acid is one of the forms of Vitamin A. It is particularly effective in eradicating dark spots and fine lines. However, users are warned that the over application of retinoic acid may cause facial redness. As a gentler acid substitute, which is retinol may be used. This acid takes more time to work but it is far effective for various skin types since retinoic acid can cause dryness and light sensitivity. Women may also use Hydroquinone (HQ); it is gaining popularity these days and is considered as a powerful lightening agent. HQ breaks the melanosomes of the skin and stops their production to prevent the hyperpigmentation or the over darkening of the face.

However, dermatologists would obliged the users of these products to apply more sunscreen and to avoid sun exposure altogether since doing so may lead to the extreme facial darkening. To achieve the best skin product results, users of the above stated products are encouraged to exfoliate to even out their skin tone.
