So before i enter 2013, i thought i would share one of my favourite upcoming trends with you guys. Girl power has been creeping up on us for a while and it has finally arrived. Take the sound of modern day bands, Vivian Girls and Best Coast with The Cranberries add a little sprinkle of Spice girls the movie (a guilty pleasure of mine) and classic 90′s TV shows, Clarissa explains it all and my so called life – Ladies and gentlemen we have ourselves the modern and playful 90′s trend!
The catwalks were filled with 90′s girl power, models skipped down the runway sporting big bunches, bulky frayed braids and lots of ponytails. You want scrunchies you’ve got them, glitter, velvet, printed, the choice goes on and on. The pretty grunge trend has a dreamy, youthful essence, dominant delicate colour palettes of pastels works well with retro prints, lace and denim. Go playful with frosted pink lips, blushed cheeks and pastel hair dyes – a great way to complete the look.
Get creative and show your inner spice girl with modern platforms, halter necks and coordinating colours. Alternatively grunge the trend up, wearing lots of layers, double denims and big black flatforms. You can go as girly or grungy as you desire, just remember to find your 90′s spirit in 2013.

“The Powder Ridge Rock Festival was scheduled to be held July 31- August 2, 1970 in Middlefield, Connecticut. A legal injunction forced the event to be canceled, keeping the musicians away; but a crowd of 30,000 attendees arrived anyway, to find no food, no entertainment, no adequate plumbing, and at least seventy drug dealers. William Manchester wrote: “Powder Ridge was an accident waiting to happen, and it happened.” Volunteer doctor William Abruzzi declared a drug “crisis” on 1 August and said “Woodstock was a pale pot scene. This is a heavy hallucinogens scene.”
Over the years, “Bella Donnas” have graced our screens with their beauty. One shot and we were all stunned by their classic, glamorous and graceful poise. Take at look at a few of my favourite faces which have inspired me.
- I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.
Bacall hit our screens in the 1940′s and 50′s. The American actress starred in films “To have and have not” and “The Big Sleep”. She later married regular co-star Humphrey Bogart and what an influential and chic couple they were! Lauren Bacall always managed to fuse girlish innocence with sultry sinners. Her husky voice and trademark arch eyebrows, thick waves and flawless skin is why she is still remembered today as a forever beauty.
– Any girl can look glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid.
If one beauty had it all, Lamarr was it. They say beauty and brains is a rare exception, Hedy Lamarr was that exception. This Austrian actress of the 40′s was nicknamed “The most beautiful woman in films”. Nude scenes of Lamarr came as no surprise to us, this seductive kitten had a body to die for and was not afraid to flaunt it. With a pout to kill, you would not believe this doe-eyed beauty was also a rocket scientist? Whatever she did, she did in style. Chic and glamorous, wearing mostly off the shoulder gowns with a feminine touch of lace or pleats. This beauty lives on, in more ways then one.
DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR
– I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.
Elizabeth Taylor is a name which will go down in history. The British born American actress first appeared on our screens mid 40′s and she took the world by storm, starring in “Jane Ayre” “BUtterfield 8″ and “Cleopatra” . Her glamorous lifestyle, radiant beauty and superb talent made her a woman we all adored. Taylor was born with a strange mutation leaving her with two sets of eyelashes, this only enhanced the stunning violet- blue eyes of hers, resulting in a breathtaking and captivating face. One thing to remember about Elizabeth Taylor is- she will forever be the queen of jewellery. Diamonds, pearls, gems – anything that sparkles she wore. The glamorous Jewell with shine on with her beauty legacy.
- I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.
The woman whose beauty lives on. The American actress, model , singer and sex symbol touched the hearts of many. The 50′s and 60′s star adored the camera, and the camera adored her right back. Her platinum locks, curvacious figure and red lips were a definite trademark of Marilyn’s. Her charismatic behavior and individual beauty wooed the preseident, made her the very first face to feature on the issue of Playboy magazine, she even appeared on the sleeve of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It is easy to see her beauty and style has inspired us all. Cheeky, classy and legendary, Marilyn Monroe- Loved by many, hated by some, remembered by all.
-I never thought I’d land in pictures with a face like mine.
My final beauty is the iconic and truly original Audrey Hepburn. When i was a little girl my mother had me sit and watch many famous films featuring this star. Audrey was different from all other classic beauties. She broke the mold of Hollywood glamor- with her elfin like features and tall slender frame. Before Hepburn it was all about curves and curves, her androgynous look is what made her unique. She was adored by the public and effortlessly became one of the coolest, chicest woman to grace our screen. Voted the most beautiful woman of all time, she had a certain je ne sais quoi about her which was indescribable. Hepburn’s defying role happened in 1961- with the desirable and adorable Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s “. She was a true beauty who took our breath away. Her legacy of style, class and giving back to the world lives on. “how do i look”- still as classic as ever.
so there you have it. Classic beauties. who is your favourite?

So, this next product is straight outta Yorkshire! from our good friends at ‘Stay Fly’ basically, if you’re a Sneaker Fiend, or a Clean Freak you need to read on…
“Stay Fly Shoe Juice is a formula created to prevent staining and water damage to Fabric and Leather.
Stay Fly Shoe Juice forms a thin clear protective coating around fibres which due to its highly hydrophobic properties reduces moisture penetration rate significantly improving water repellence and developing an easier to clean surface. Coffee, tea, blackcurrant and red wine staining for example is reduced considerably.
Shoe Juice is formulated using the latest hydrophobic technology – water repellent, stain resist and easy to clean.”
So a year or so ago I saw all these videos about Hydrophobic substances, that basically repel water… I thought how cool it would be if your clothes or trainers were covered in the stuff – no stains, ever!
Me being the lazy guy I am, never did anything about it… But the guys at Stay Fly obviously had the determination to see the idea through, thus ‘Shoe Juice’ was born!
I knew I had to try the stuff, so one morning I open my letter box to find a little parcel containing this bottle and a sheet of instructions. First up the packaging and logo, dope! done by another of our friends over at Ejectos, you can see his branding for the project here.
So now we will walk you through the application of ‘Stay Fly – Shoe Juice’…
- First up, Shake the bottle!
- Then, as with all stuff like this, it is advisable to test a little of this stuff on a small patch of fabric out of the way, just in case it doesn’t work right!
- Right, so these are brand new kicks, otherwise I would advise getting them as clean as possible before starting.
- It’s really easy to apply, basically just spray the shoe as evenly as you can, covering the whole fabric area. Best to give it a light, but even coat, then reapply; than to try drenching the fabric and possibly coming out with an uneven or stained finish.
- I would personally give it a couple of good coats, with some drying time in between.
- Then leave the suckers for 24 hours to dry properly!
So here is the result! This stuff is pretty mental, look at the water just slide off it, Teflon Don! These shoes are normal canvas weave, which even when new, would soak up water pretty damn quick. With Shoe juice it just repels straight off!
How cool is this stuff?! So now you’ve seen it, I’m sure you want to buy some STRAIGHT AWAY! and coat all your precious kicks in the stuff. So here are the details:
Stay Fly Shoe Juice forms a thin clear breathable protective coating with hydrophobic properties.
Protection for trainers, fabric and leather shoes
Water repellent and improves stain resistance
Shoe Juice costs only £13.99 (Post and packing included!) – And that will cover up to 5 pairs of trainers!
Here are some videos of the stuff in action:
