SOLAR ARK: World’s Most Stunning Solar Building


Sanyo has built an ark for the solar century – an impressive 630 kW solar-collecting building that boasts over 5,000 solar panels and kicks off over 500,000 kWh of energy per year. Even more outstanding is the fact that most of the monocrystalline modules used on the Solar Ark were factory rejects headed to the scrap pile. Located next to Sanyo's semiconductor factory in Gifu, Japan, the Solar Ark stands as one of the best examples of building integrated PV design to date.

LED Radiator by Aeon


The helix-shaped design looks more like a piece of art and is designed to be the focal point of your living room. Speira is constructed from 120 individual satin finish brushed stainless steel blades sited precisely at 90 degrees to the next and curving through 180 degrees from top to bottom over the full 2,400 mm height of the design. LED lights are housed in both the top and base of Speira to impart a subtle laser-like effect across each blade. The suave structure not just radiates warmth but will lighten-up your aesthetics, wonderfully.

BOOKSHELF BENCH


This is just sooo 'IWANTTHAT!!!! kind of thing. I love ittt! not so sure ont he skelton thingy but other than that im really digging it.
The bench and bookshelf combination is a concept from Latvia's Stanislav Katz.

Price is a bit steep but it is worth it.....if the skeleton wasnt there and it was just a bench to sit on it would be even better.

What do you guys think?

How to look good when you're looking bad!

Have you ever had to rush somewhere and did not have the time to dress up or look good.
Well this thread is for you. Many a times have i been rushing around and have had no time to get ready. Sometimes when my hair's a mess and in causual clothes that you wear around the house.

The answer is beanie hat! and a nice cardigan.
As they say the little things makes a big difference, just by adding a beanie hat can change you whole look, or adding a jacket.

Keep your closet clean and tidy and resourceful in the urgent times so you can bang anything on and still look good.

And invest in the essentials rather than focusing on the brands.

Another top tip is to match t'z with jeans, fast and easy and very cheap way of looking good.

Job Interviews

Ok, i was emailed with a question about job interviews, even though i do not specify in that field as it's a fashion blog but if you come to think about it your appearance is important in a job interview.

"Why are you looking for another job?
When answering this question:
Keep your answer brief - don't go into a lot of detail (the briefer the response-the more convincing the answer)
Do not knock your last employer, at this stage or any other.

"What sort of job are you looking for?"
Every interviewer hopes that the next candidate to walk through that door will be the answer to his search. So many candidates sabotage their own chances by answering the above question from their own point of view rather than from that of the company's/interviewer's. The company is only interested in how you can satisfy its needs and match its job requirements, your needs are secondary importance.
The best way to answer this question is to follow on from the "Tell me about yourself" answer and transfer those abilities into discussing the job in question and the contribution you can make to it

“What is your greatest weakness?”
Look at your list of weaknesses and relate the weakness (excess) back to your strengths 'I like to get things done quickly.... sometimes I get impatient but I'm learning how to overcome this.' Don’t think you can get away with announcing proudly that you have no weaknesses, the interviewer will not be impressed. And don’t declare that you’re greatest weakness is that you like to work too hard. The interviewer has heard them all before and won’t take you seriously.

“What do you not like to do?”
A very loaded question. Under no circumstances list tasks and responsibilities that you dislike, you’ll rule yourself out of the running at record speed. A positive reply might be; ‘I'm the kind of person who does whatever is necessary to get the job done. When I do run into something disagreeable, I try to do it first and get it behind me. I have no particular dislikes’.

THESE ARE JUST BASIC QUESTIONS THEY ARE MOST LIKELY TO ASK, PREPARE BEFORE HAND AND ALWAYS SIT UPSTRAIGHT AND NOD AT THE RIGHT TIMES TO ASSURE THEM YOU ARE INTERESTED AND PAYING ATTENTION. ALSO I SUGGEST PREPARING SOME OF YOUR OWN QUESTIONS
TO ASK.

Dress to Impress, the first impression has to be a impressive one. Always opt for a shirt and tie nothing less. How you're dressed can also determine the outcome of the interview and remember not to forget your manners (handshake, hello etc)

I will be posting clothess you could wear for the interview in my next post tommorow! So keep a look out for that.

HOPE THIS HELPS! and good luck with the interview

Idea!

Ok so i was sat at work bored out of my eyes....then a thought came to me!
I want to do a side business with someone, anything ! i am approachable to any suggestions
just leave me a comment if you want me to join you.

I really am bored :

OMG the first luxury hotel in the sky?!?
The world is fast advancing and you have got to be with the timess lol
People this is Manned Cloud, the latest from French designer Jean-Marie Massaud, aims to be the world's first luxury hotel in the sky.

The double-decker carrier can travel 5,000 consecutive km, and is able to accommodate 40 guests (and 15 staff members) in its 1,100 sq. meter space. The flying hotel includes a restaurant and bar, lounge, library, fitness center, 20 rooms and terrace.

Toaster ?!?!


This looks like my Modem or something Apple would make.
It's actually the Swarovski Limited Edition Crystal Toaster

This is from the website:
"Covered with more than 200 dazzling Swarovski crystals, this kitchen gadget is designed by Russell Hobbs. So kick start your day with warm and crunchy toasts popping up from this bejewled toaster. Grab it before it vanishes off from Neiman Marcus as only 500 if it is made. $300 isn't much for a blinged breakfast time. "

Simone Grünwald

Born in Bavaria in a small quiet village, after school had to see something else, so she went to Florence, Italy to study fashion and she fell in love with the italian language.

After one year she went back to Germany to Hamburg, and there studied in that harbor city for 2 years until she got bored and went to Antwerp do one year in the academy there.

Her graduation collection is called "my private hero" is full of heroic fashion elements. She likes to create fashion between elegant and casual. Good quality and beautiful fabrics is very important. Simone says "fashion should be precious - full of hidden secrets and be in somebodys wardrobe for a reason". So she wants to evoke this precious feeling about clothes in somebodys mind. The colourful outfits are inspired by the movie "the sting".

Some of her designs below: i like the shoes ! i need a pair damn!


I love this!

Browsing through the oki-ni store products I found this heavyweight woollen knit cardigan by Martin Margiela. . With a great checkerboard textured pattern in navy color and a large shawl neckline which is double layered you can feel very warm and stylish at the same time. The centre front features four chunky buttons and the cardigan is finished with a 1 x 1 rib on the cuffs and at the hem.After that gorgeous cardigan I wanted to check the scarves category and I had a crush on this Drakes vintage fairisle scarf. Just awesome, produced in the UK from the finest lambswool. Bring's back memories of the 80's when children at school used to wear pullovers with patterns like this. This colourway of beige, navy, red and sky blue pattern is also a recall of retro arcade classics!

Flexibility

Your clothes have everything to do with whether or not you get your foot in the door on a date or whether you get job—and that's the first step in getting other parts of you in other places. And it doesn't have to be expensive. Forget the £500 shirts and £800 watches that men's magazine's offer as fashion tips. Build a flexible—affordable—foundation of casual clothing options. This is is the best thing as it will help keem you looking good but with out spending extravagant amounts!

Youthful Appearace

After recieving many emails on wrinkles i thought i would dedicate this post to those who emailed. I did not know much about the effect of wrinkles but came across this quite helpful article. (http://searchwarp.com/swa266652.htm) Full article BELOW

"There are different things that actually cause wrinkles and it is important that you know what many of those things are so that you could possibly help in preventing or reducing any wrinkles that you might have or could have in the near future.

This article is written in hopes that you all can learn some more about what the leading causes of early wrinkles are, as well as how you can treat them and possibly even get rid of them for good! We all have high hopes that our gene pool is awesome and that as we grow older we remain just about as youthful looking each and every year that passes but unfortunately it does not always work out that way. Do not get too disappointed about it though because you do have many available options as to treating your wrinkles and protecting your skin and keeping that youthful look that you cherish so much.

Maintaining your youthful appearance while also reducing the onset of wrinkles is not an easy task but it is truly possible, with the correct information and the right types of treatment and protection, so pay close attention throughout this article, you might be surprised by what you will learn. By using sunscreen on a daily basis you are protecting your skin in such a way that you will definitely reduce your chances of getting wrinkles early on in life and if you are a little older and use sunscreen on a daily basis you can actually improve the looks of your skin and prevent any further damage from occurring, including those wrinkles that you despise so very much. That is really very simple right, so why are so many people neglecting their skin? People, both men and women really do need to understand that they are not going to look gorgeous their entire lives without putting in a little bit of effort each and every day that passes. It is also not just about being gorgeous, it is about living a much happier life because you will see the results once you get on a regular routine of taking care of your skin and you will also see a decrease in wrinkles, you might even see that some of the ones you had last week have diminished.

The air that we breathe in every single second of the day is a large reason as to why so many of us have such a problem with early wrinkles also, in case you were not already aware of that. Pollution is such an enormous problem and it actually does deplete the amount of Vitamin E in our skin, which causes more wrinkles because of less moisture. As I mentioned, there are so many reasons why we get wrinkles and there are many things that we can all do about it, so instead of sitting around griping about it, do something, today and you will be amazed at awsome the resuilts taht follow.

You may not like him...you may like him
It's Pete Doherty people

Face of Gio-Goi
The bad boy rocker, i don't know whether to love his style or hate it. Sometimes he dresses good, sometimes he doesn't. You can't quite define his style as it varys too much and is very rough at times.
What do you think of him?

Take Care of Your Hair

People complain that such a problem is wrong with their hair but that's only the case when you don't know how to take care of it. Shampoo, condition etc
Stuff like this really helps your hair, using the right shampoo for you or having a certain haircut which goes well with you face.

You can learn about face shapes and hair by doing a quick search engine search, also be careful as to what gel you use, take time and read what it says on the tube instead of just commiting the same mistakes everytime.

A friend of mine started having hairloss due to a certain gel he used which was really bad for him, but after stopping it's usage it has helped. When you go for a haircut don't just tell the hairdresser what to do , talk with him get to know hi, discuss things , ask for tips
Having a good relationship with a hairdresser is really good.

Music Inspiration

Kanye West says:"Stronger is also a fashion statement. Its for people like us, who dress fresh and like fly shit. And if you dont like the song, than more than likely you don't know how to dress either."
I think that Kanye was very fashion forward and a lot of people are uncomfortable with being different. Many people weren't fans of his Jeremy Scott aviator glasses.

However i don't mind The shutter shades they are very modern.

The shades are very expensive and will be a part of Kanye's new line called: "Pastelle". I think he has great style. I can't wait till he releases it although it was scheduled for November but maybe due to commitments and his mother's unfortuante death it has been delayed.

What do you think about how the music world is inspiring the fashion world?

Vainess..

Tobias Wong and Ju$t Another Rich Kid created the Gold Pill. Which is a pill dipped in gold and filled with a 24-karat gold leaf.

It claims to make your poop sparkle. For those who like to see their poop sparkle, this is the perfect thing for you :P i don't really think we see our poop and admire haha
The fashion industry has made many bold leaps and bounds..but I don't think I support this one. Astonishingly people are paying $425.00 a tablet just so their sh*t will sparkle.I am thoroughly disgusted and not surprised at celebrities that are vain enough to make their poop twinkle...

This is a fashion accessory that I can live without..But if for some bizzare reason you would like to purchase this you can visit https://www.citizen-citizen.com/defaultsecure.aspx?id=133&type=item or click here

I didn't think you would :P
