The best performer

I like to sing specially on my spare time. I have karaoke at home, but our speakers don’t work so well. I’m not doubt it’s also quite old speaker. I think it’s time for a change. I started checking on the net and upon my search, I found prx515 I bought at once and I quite love it. It has a perfect balance between size and performance. I can easily connect my microphone to the speaker input. My new thing is really an exception; it’s smaller and lighter without compromising on performance. Now, I can enjoy more singing with my new speaker.

Luxury Accessories – Great Gift Ideas for Men

Whether it’s a birthday, a wedding anniversary, a graduation, a retirement or just any special occasion, buying gifts for us men can be tricky. We may find pleasure in the latest gadgets and technology or will appreciate a fine bottle of our favourite poison (mine being whiskey by the way!), but these presents are often fleeting – it won’t be long before that technology is out-dated andwill be in even less time before that bottle will be emptied.

If you are buying for a particularly trendy gentleman then luxury accessories are a great gift idea. Designer cufflinks are a good choice as they are a small but sophisticated accessory that can be used at the office or at a formal occasion. Coloured or patterned cufflinks are great for work as they can be bought to match ties – so have a rifle through your man’s tie rack for an impression of the designs you should be looking out for. More expensive cufflinks, such as those made of sterling silver, are better for weddings and such occasions.

If you are buying for a not-so fashion conscious chap (jeans, t-shirt and trainers being the only outfit they own) then luxury accessories are a great gift idea also: you can always guarantee an invite to a wedding or other formal occasion where these accessories are useful and, who knows, you may even influence a man’s wardrobe with one simple gesture. Your man may favour comfort over style so a knitted tie makes an excellent present. Knitted ties are best option for a relaxed look without compromising style and elegance – go for block colours to compliment a patterned shirt and vice versa. However, be careful how your store the knitted tie, as keeping it unrolled may stretch the open weave.

A third consideration would be for those men who love their cars. My father, for example, recently purchased a vintage model and I’m convinced he spends more time driving it around than he does with my mother. As a gift for his birthday last month, I opted for a trendy pair of leather driving gloves – comfortable, practical and chic.

Walk on the Wild Side with Animal Print

PhotobucketPaige’s latest range of stylish, sophisticated jeans are a wardrobe necessity this season and these Paige Premium Verdugo Jeans in leopard print are certainly a fierce fashion statement. Leopard print is often judged rather harshly, but in this style, it is totally stunning and has a classy, sophisticated vibe about it. The skinny fit from the mid-rise waist to the ankle is very flattering to your figure no matter how many times you wear the jeans. And while they are true to size and slim fitting, the 2% spandex material gives the denim a super-stretch texture to ensure top quality comfort. These jeans are an ideal choice for casual everyday wear, but for an office-inspired look, team with acream or white blouse. Wear the blouse tucked into the trousers to accentuate your figure even more!

PhotobucketZoe Karssen’s quirky summer tees are cool, cute and perfect for this season. This simple yet stylish tee with a bat logo is a great piece with short sleeves, long length and a relaxed, loose fit, so you can feel and look cool throughout the summer months. The ‘heavenly pink’ is a delicate colour, evoking a vibe of femininity without being too girly, while the bat logo gives the tee a subtle rock chick vibe. The 50% cotton, 50% modal material is comfortable and soft against your skin. Because the colour of the tee is quite pale, team with bright accessories and shorts or jeans to avoid looking washed out. Finish with a pair of sandals, espadrilles or flip flops and you’re set for summer.

PhotobucketIt is a well-known fact that Simeon Farrar’s fashion creations are exclusive and unique pieces which cannot be found anywhere else. This fabulous Simeon Farrar Horses tee is a brilliant addition to your wardrobe, with a pale pink shade andhorse print from the artist himself. The gorgeous girly colour adds a feminine touch while the horse print is slightly more mysterious and dark. Whether you’re a horse lover or not, the pattern of the running horses is a totally unique design and so beautiful. The slim fit is also very flattering accompanied with a soft fabric which is kind to your skin. This piece would also be a fantastic choice for a Western-theme look. If you want to head down that route, team with a pair of classic denim blue shorts or cropped jeans, and cowboy boots.
