La Maisons Simons Spring 2012




Behind the scenes, dancing around, taking photos under heat and sweat and sexy music. All you need then is the lavish drape of delicious clothing by La Maisons Simons. I enjoy the play on vibrant colors vs neutrals like black, white and nude. Then you have the hot hair.

Fashionable Hoodies

Hoodies are not generally associated with fashionable clothing. They are usually more functional than aesthetically pleasing. We wear them because they’re comfortable and casual, not because they necessarily look good. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t hoodies and sweatshirts out there that are more fashion forward than others. What you need is a hoody that perfectly treads the line between looking stylish and feeling comfortable – that means high quality material and construction, combined with attractive and innovative design. The best place to shop for this kind of fusion is at an established, reliable retailer – Joe Browns, which was established in 1998, “...to offer something more exciting and more individual than the other clothing catalogues in the UK”. Their range of hoodies for both men and women is extensive, with bold graphic designs and durable, insulating materials to give you a garment that will see you through the year ahead and beyond.


The popularity of graphic logos and designs has been steadily increasing over the past few years, with newer brands such as Superdry, helping to establish and develop the trend. Not one to be left in the past, Joe Browns, although an older brand, has been carefully following the latest fashion trends to produce its own individual range of hoodies and sweatshirts, consistently being updated with new ideas. There are a variety of both men’s and women’s hoodies to choose from, in a range of styles. That doesn’t just mean variations in colour and design – there are also more substantial differences, for example in the way the hoody is fastened, the thickness of the material, and the size of the hood. Different types of hoodies are appropriate for different events and situations, such as a windy soccer game, or going out to a sports bar with the guys. Think about the places and occasions where you want to wear your hoody and choose the right one for you.

T-Shirts: A Classic for Men



T-shirts have long been a commonplace clothing item for men. Initially many were printed with a design or catchy phrase. However, they no longer solely fit this mould. T-shirts have experienced their own revolution over the years, and have been worn in numerous ways by men. In fact, they have become so versatile that they are now considered a wardrobe essential by many.


In the beginning, t-shirts only came in basic colours like black and white. However, this is no longer the case. T-shirts can be found in about any possible colours a man would want. They also can be found in a variety of styles.  Mens shirts have become just as stylish as those worn by women.  The Internet has made it even easier for men to expand their collection, as they can shop at online clothing stores around the world.

There is a certain way in which a man should wear a t-shirt to ensure that he stays neat looking. The best way in which to accomplish this is the make sure that it is tucked in. This creates a neat look and keeps a man from looking sloppy. Another way in which to dress up a t-shirt is simply to wear a pair of slacks. Sure, jeans are comfortable but if a man wants a dressy look, slacks are the way to go. A belt is a great accessory to add in order to make the outfit look more pulled together. Leather belts are a good choice to wear, and adding a unique belt buckle can further complete the look. Belt buckles can feature a western theme or be a more modern design. Another hint for men when wearing t-shirts is to use them as layering pieces. This can create a variety of looks. They can easily be layered under sports coats, polo shirts, button down oxford shirts, vest and cardigans. Try out some of these ideas, and you will stand out among the crowd of regular white tee wearers.

A Different (and maybe better) way to Smoke


"The ‘60s was the era of smoking, but why mix glam with hacking coughs and yellow teeth, when you can look just as sexy as Don Draper with a South Beach Smoke."

"These smokeless, electronic cigarettes are a high-tech and non-flammable solution that is not only smooth, but healthy too. When you take a puff you're not exposing yourself, or anyone else, to carcinogens, tobacco or ash, because you're simply exhaling pure water vapor (the actual base is made of glycerin, which is safe to use). The result is a no tar, ash, smell or bad breath version of the sophisticated and seductive smoker."





This is a very unique product. First off, I did read the entire manual before using, and you should too, just to get the feel of what you are getting into. The upkeep is simple, and requires little effort. You just charge the battery while you sleep, and it is ready to go, all day long. I suggest you starting off with shorter less intense inhalations (drags), and see how much your body really needs. Gradually increase your inhalations as needed. The cigarettes are very portable, and you would do great just keeping them in your pocket. For those that are trying to stop smoking, this is a great alternative. See the South Beach Smoke website to learn more.
