Fun Gadgets For Star Wars Lego Fans And More

Now that you got me started, you know I love a good gadget every now and then, but if you like some too, the better! Legos. Our little full house is full of them! And if you haven’t felt the bliss yet, all you need is step on a Lego to feel just how deep the love for them runs! Straight to your heart and then some! You don’t need to curse anyone farther than ‘I hope you step on a Lego!’ – it’s the very peak of cruelty, made in geek chic!

Yeah, but they’re also the most amazing toys ever conceived. Lego bricks are just madly versatile and a must-have at any age. Talking about their versatility: The StormstrooperTM Key Light is now available for purchase. Joining a long list of Lego keychains of which I will particularly highlight the classic Lego brick and some more after the jump!

Angelina Jolie Vs. Cancer: Proactive Double Mastectomy

Although I used to follow news about Angelina Jolie and her life choices on a daily basis (read nearly obsessive), I was really surprised by the news of her double mastectomy. My initial reaction was stunned: I was stunned. Because I thought the worse had happened and she discovered she suffered from breast cancer. As I remembered her own mother died from cancer a couple of years back and these types of cancer are usually hereditary (doctors recommend that if the mother had breast cancer, the daughter has to start doing regular checkups far earlier than usual because this is, sadly, a type of cancer that runs in the family).

But no. Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy as a preventive measure! I passed from stunned to shocked. Hit the jump to understand why I reacted the way I did!

Dare To Wear Wood Necklaces?

We’ve talked about a lot of innovative materials and original designs molded into jewelry pieces. Although my preferences go towards bracelets and earrings, a statement necklace every now and then hasn’t hurt anyone! (wink)

But here I am, wondering if you would really wear a statement necklace made of wood chips. Painted, artistically cut but still hard wood. I know it’s pretty and unusual, but it can also be dangerous. Literally. Especially the pointed chips make me doubt I would dare to really wear these lovely necklaces designed by GBWorkshop’s owner, Gin hailing from Lithuania.

Skinny Healthy Drinking: Flavored Water Maker

More gadgets, you said! Well, here I am, fulfilling your wishes! (wink) And having loads of fun while doing it! So summer is just around the corner (joy dance, yaaay!) and it’s time we step away from the stove & the oven, give our bodies the fresh stocks it needs after long cold days filled with processed food. It’s my philosophy. I’m not Gwyneth Paltrow, that’s for sure, but I try to keep the balance straight when it comes to nutrition and life regime.

Long story short: how do you keep yourself hydrated during the hot summer days? I happen to like naturally flavored water! I favor lemon or lime flavored water but why not get creative and add some zing to my usual flavors? Here’s the Aqua Zinger Flavored Water Maker! You just add the ingredients in the bottom lid, screw it back on the bottle, fill the reservoir with water or any other desired drink and you’re one shake away from a dreamy flavored drink. All natural and healthy! What say you, my dahlings? (just in case you need more information, the Aqua Zinger is available at zinganythingdotcom)

J’Adore Dior Summer Mix Nail Polish!

You know me by now and you know my weaknesses. As such, I have to come clean about a new find in a long series of nail polish obsessions: Dior. Dior Summer Mix 2013 Vernis nails polish collection is just dreamy!

The colors are so pretty and fresh, the combinations, just like the names, are perfect! Just look at this shimmer fabulous pink called ‘Diablotine’ – how could I ever resist that? And they thought about everything: there’s a Dior Base Coat, a Dior Nutritional Cream (for hands&nails, biensur) and several Dior topcoats. Of course, I’d love to know how they hold on the nail, but considering that a single bottle of nail polish costs appx $27, I’d have to be very careful about choosing the polish or the top coat I’d like to add to my collection.

Anna Wintour Goes Punk On Magazine Cover!

Talking about Kate Upton and why she got a Vogue US cover and if she really deserved being called the world’s hottest supermodel pointed me in this special cover’s direction. Which I wouldn’t have missed or keep for myself for the world!

Remember the Met? That was a week ago! Well, this year’s Costume Institute Exhibition is about PUNK: Chaos to Couture. As we all know Anna Wintour, Vogue US legendary editor in-chief, curates the exhibition just as she presides over the annual charity Gala which, as our dear friend Appollonia said, was dignified with ‘un-fun’ by the world’s most beautiful woman, Gwyneth Paltrow.

If Gwinnie said so, it must be so! But how fun is this (alternative) New York Magazine Cover with a very PUNK Anna Wintour on the cover? Pink streaks and nose ring? Heavenly. Punk! A huge thanks to those responsible for this mess.. ahem cover… ahem… whatnot!

World’s Hottest Supermodel According To Vogue US June 2013: Kate Upton

That’s disputable, honestly. But if a fashion entity such as Vogue is claiming that not only they found the hottest model on Earth, but that she’s really the antithesis of everything and anything a model represented in our eyes previous to this cover! Kate Upton is clearly not your average girl-model. But then again, why should she be? We’re all different and diversity makes beauty.

Let’s dig deeper, though. What makes Kate Upton so different, so desirable and so ‘hot’ as to bring her on June’s cover of Vogue US as photographed by Testino before many girls/women whose curriculum goes way back in fashion and media in general? Could it be because her birthday is coming up, on June 10th? Nah, I have my birthday coming up in June and nobody asked me to be in Vogue! (modest much? wink) So: back to square one. Why Kate Upton? Why is she the American Dream Girl?

Dior New Secret Ad Campaign Looks Poetic And Beautiful

Everyone knows: you just can’t sell if you’re not pushing your merchandise. And what better way to push it than through a spectacular advertising approach? Raf Simons has his special ways with the Christian Dior maison and I think it’s daylight clear by now that everybody loves his approach. It’s very fashion. Straight forward but very chic.

As such, his latest ‘Secret Garden’ ad project gathered a round 8-figures number of views and I’m guessing the following one, set for release on June 1st, will also break some youtube views barriers. Because everyone loves a good secret, everyone loves a good garden and everyone ‘adore’ Dior. The new ad looks like this:
