Christmas is undoubtedly one of the most popular times to get down on one knee. If you’re thinking about harnessing holiday cheer to pop the question to the woman you love, here are a few do’s and don’ts to keep in mind.vashi


DO use the season’s strengths to plan your proposal.

Twinkly lights, pure driven snow, and mistletoe all add up to a very romantic atmosphere during the holiday season. Use these to your advantage as you set the scene, whether it’s writing your question in the snow or proposing at a festive tree-lighting ceremony just as the With ready-made romance and cheer at this time of year, it’s easy to get a bit lazy with your proposal.

We take the announcement at a family gathering.

Hold off on flashing photos of the ring on Instagram until you’ve had a chance to tell the family. Family Christmas gatherings provide the perfect occasion to share your good news, so that you can all celebrate together.


DO have an engagement timeline in mind.

Be aware that one of the first questions you’re going to be asked at that family gathering is if you’ve picked a date or not! Start your planning early.


DON’T forget to take photos.

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment with so much going on at this time of year, but don’t forget about capturing the moment.


DON’T forget to shop around for the ring.

You can hit the high street for inspiration and shop online for preset engagement rings or design your own on websites like Vashi. Take your time, and don’t forget to think about her sense of style.

Ok, engagement rings cost money, so it’s natural to feel a bit miserly when it comes to shelling out for a separate Christmas gift. But these are two separate occasions, requiring two separate gifts. Plan ahead and budget for both.

The man who invented the first adidas shoes





images (3)Adolf Dassler was inspired by a single idea when he made his first shoes in 1920, at the age of just 20. His vision was to provide every athlete with the best footwear        for his respective discipline. It was this principle that guided him right up until his death in 1978.

images His first shoe, made from the few materials available in the difficult post-war period, was produced from canvas. A passionate athlete himself, from the very beginning Adi Dassler was in close contact with sports participants and was always present in person at important sports events.



Adi Dassler focused his work on the classic disciplines of track and field. Athletes wore special shoes from his workshop for the first time at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. In the mid 1920’s he was already experimenting with spikes. images (1)In the mid 1930’s  Adi Dassler was already making 30 different shoes for eleven sports, and he had a workforce of almost 100 employees. In less than two decades adidas advanced to become the world’s leading sports shoe manufacturer.

The trick has functional merit. Adidas’s designers claim leather of varying thickness can give different levels of flexibility and support around the foot.

For now, Adidas only plans to sell just 45 pairs at the Dover Street Market in New York, London, and Tokyo on November 7.images (4)

“This unique process offers the opportunity for athletes to have bespoke leather footwear, which can be milled exclusively for them in real time, from the leather of their choice,”


Explosive fashion in 2015


According to one of the established designers- Fashion is a “creative business” and you cannot be too arty and expect sales. You need to apply your creativity to design well-made products and should know the right channels to show them to the world.7

Yes fashion can be a protest because people have always used the clothes they wear as a way to stand for something whether it is a teenage rebellion or freedom fighters.

The markets world across are now understanding the concept of explosive fashion or ramp worthy collection which is mainly showcased to attract the buyers and the media. At the same time, these collections are mostly in sync with the look (aesthetic appeal), style, material, color etc. which helps the buyers to visualize the prêt collection.

‘ART’ is an integral part of any creative field and can be used in numerous ways and contexts which can change with space and time.



​Here’s a new phrase for you: chok chok. It’s a Korean phrase meaning moist—and more often than not, it’s used to describe luminous skin. For over a decade in Korean beauty culture, using powder to mattify ones complexion has been considered a cardinal sin. Finally, the rest of the world is getting on board. Yes, the dewy glow is in.

I remember learning about skincare over warm lattes and pastries at Garosugil, a trendy Seoul neighborhood lined with large trees and larger fashion boutiques, back in 2008. It was not uncommon that I would sit there wide-eyed, surrounded by my local Korean girlfriends, as they exchanged beauty tips and their updated skin care routines.


But one brunch, in particular, stands out: It was right before I experienced my inaugural, brutal Seoul winter. It was also when I first learned about the Korean hydration philosophy. My friends preached that hydrating my skin topically would keep it dewy and elastic, and chase away fine lines (which, by the way, are more glaringly apparent during the winter because they’re a symptom of dehydrated skin). And I quickly learned that it was so much more than slathering on whatever moisturizer’s on your shelf or (like we’ve all been told incorrectly) drinking lots and lots of water.

You’re going for a clean and healthy-looking glow. You know, that coveted, effortless, lit-from-within look. Disclaimer: This is not effortless. From cleansers to toners to exfoliators (and even sunscreen!), use products that are formulated with hydrating humectants—a cosmetic ingredient that helps the skin retain its natural moisture—like hyaluronic acid and glycerin. Bonus points for products that have little (or better yet, no)

At night, substitute your night cream with a sleeping pack. Sleeping packs are a popular Korean skincare category that are turbo-charged with extra-hydrating ingredients that absorb quickly and cocoon your face with moisture as you sleep.

A Korean skincare routine without sheet masks is like eating nachos without the cheese–what’s the point? Sheet masks are designed to lock in the moisture with a microfiber cloth or hydrogel layer that traps in the skin-benefiting ingredients. Without proper hydration, tiny fissures in the outermost layer of your skin can make skin more susceptible to bacteria and itchy, flaky awfulness. Pro tip: You won’t get extra benefits by keeping the mask on longer than suggested. After 20 minutes, the mask will start to draw moisture away from yoursgallery-1449514537-elle-comp3

How to develop a fashion?


Start by learning what colors look the best on you. Start by using colors you like – it’s often a good starting place. Bring along a friend if you don’t trust your own judgement. Consult books to see what experts think.  It details basic color choices based on skin tone, hair, and eyes


Find out what your best features are. Remember, the idea shape for any woman is the hourglass. Most clothing works to emulate this shape. If you have an hourglass, emphasize your small waist. If you have large hips or large shoulders, use clothing to widen the smaller feature.


Study fashion magazines to get ideas of current trends. Read Cosmopolitan, Vogue, or others, depending on your age and favored style. Watch advertisements and other people. When you see something that catches your attention, note what exactly you like about the outfit. 460px-Develop-Fashion-Sense-Step-5.


Hairstyles are tricky. The best way is to know thy hairdresser. Find someone who has experience and style, then put yourself in their hands. An excellent hairdresser can take your basic requirements (ie, long, no blow-drying, low maintenance), and the look you want (sassy, flirty, modern), and create something that will flatter your face shape. Friends and family are invaluable in helping you here. Don’t discredit the source – sometimes your grandma may have a gem who is in touch with more modern styles.460px-Develop-Fashion-Sense-Step-6


Always – keep track of changes, but don’t follow trends slavishly. If you hate ugg boots, don’t wear them. Part of fashion sense is knowing what you want. If you love orange, but you don’t look good in large amounts, incorporate it in accessories and small touches. Don’t forget your own personal style.
