A Bright Gem to Remember


I am on top of the world. I finished my last final exam. I will be graduating from college in the next weeks. I have completed all of my required credits for graduation. My four years of hard work have come to an end. I picked up my cap and gown for the ceremony. After graduation, I will be moving to the next phase of my life. I want something else to mark my conquest of college. I want something physical to show my accomplishment. I looked into fine jewelry dealers to purchase a class ring. I think it will the perfect symbol of my achievement.

I want my class ring to reflect the past four years of my life. I want to use it as a constant reminder of the good times I had in my place of higher learning. I have the perfect design in mind. I want my ring to have a blue sapphire in the middle. I chose this gem this gem for two reasons. First, it is my birthstone. (more…)

Picking a Lens Color for Designer Sunglasses if You Have Seasonal Affective Disorder


I craved the sunshine. Even a sunny day in the cold of winter was helpful to me. The sunshine of summer made me feel a whole lot better. I was like the poster child for seasonal affective disorder, or SAD as many know it by. That is where lack of daily exposure to sunshine makes you feel depressed, lacking energy and overall just plain awfully blah. A few rainy days in a row brought it on, and winter was awful with its shorter days. I wanted the sun so bad that even the chance to wear designer sunglasses had me leaving them in my pocket more often than wearing them. I wondered about that, so I took a look into it.

Those who have SAD do better on bright sunny days. In the winter many of those who suffer from the disorder have a light panel they sit in front of that exposes them to bright light for a few hours every day. (more…)

8 Tips To Make You Look Taller

8 Tips To Make You Look Taller

We’re not all born with long limbs and legs for days – but there are certain tips and tricks you can employ to help add a few extra inches. Here are 8 insider tips!

It goes without saying that ‘good things come in small packages’, but how do you make your style assist the illusion of being tall?

It’s not just women who can benefit from these tips from luxury fashion label Edwin Pireh –  men can learn a thing or two to assist their stature too. Enjoy!

1. Shoe colour
As the feet are an extension of the legs, if you colour match your shoes with your pants/legs it will create an extended illusion. Women wearing a skirt should opt for shoes to match the skin tone of their legs, when wearing pants one should aim for shoes to match the colour of their pants.

2. Sleeves 
Petite women need to watch their sleeve length. Actually, everyone needs to watch this tip! Don’t go too short as it can look odd and don’t go too long as it looks like you borrowed the top from your older sibling. Have your sleeves finish where they need to i.e. just past your wrist when your arms are by your side. Well lengthened sleeves allow the eyes to carry from the shoulder to the wrist – just enough to harmonise the attire and promote a taller look.

3. Stripes
In simple terms, horizontal lines makes you look wider, while vertical lines make you appear taller. It’s the motion of the eyes that triggers the sensation here. From thick to pin-stripe, keep the lines vertical if you want the look to be speaking up.

4. Hair
Unfortunately, for those women who love to have long lushes of hair, this marriage with petite cannot last. This is where opposites work best to what you’re trying to achieve. To appear taller, keep your hair above shoulder height. The rule for taller here is actually the shorter the taller.

5. Heels
Used by women of all heights, it’s amazing how much taller a pair of heels actually makes you look, not to mention the tone and definition your legs start promoting! Wedges are huge at the moment and one of my favourite everyday styles provides the elevation while being supportive over long periods of time.

6. Neck line
Round necks will make you look more, well… round, while v-necks will create that longer neckline making your neck appear longer which in turn makes you look taller.

7. Fitted
Petite women should only aim for clothing that is well fitted promoting their frame. Baggy clothing will only emphasise a heavier look and keep the overall height confined. Well tailored clothing will hug your body and elongate your features making you appear taller.

8. Hands
Women are synonymous with lovely soft hands and beautifully manicured nails. Keeping your nails long will extend your hand in a glamorous way adding to the notion of longer is taller. Don’t go overboard either, keep your nails up to 1cm long.

The Hottest Shoe Trends for Summer!


The Hottest Shoe Trends for Summer!

To ensure you’re walking into the warmer weather with this season’s most wanted shoes, here are the top shoe trends to look out for.

You know the saying, ‘Give a girl the right shoes and she’ll conquer the world’? Well, this season designers have certainly proved that saying right and as expected the 2014 catwalks delivered a visual cornucopia for shoe lovers everywhere. We can all agree, when it comes to the feet ALL women love to spend big, adoring ludicrously sexy rather than comfy soles, and own as many pairs as there are days in a year.

To ensure your walking into the warmer weather with the covet-worthy shoes, Mister Minit has teamed with Westfield Sydney head stylist Adriana Fernandez to determine the hottest shoe trends for the upcoming season.

Expect to see it all from the iconic Birkenstock to the chic sandal, Adriana outlines the biggest trends in shoes this summer, while shoe repair experts Mister Minit offers advice and their top tips for looking after them.

TREND: Ankle Strap Sandals

The ankle strap high heel shoe is a summer classic that is revived each year. There’s something about the barely-there ankle strap sandal that it totally irresistible. Perhaps it’s the power to make legs look sexier in an instant. They literally go with anything, from a dress to boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt.

Care tips:
• Single soled shoes will wear more than a platform and Mister Minit stress the importance of applying an anti-slip sole just after purchase to prolong the life of your shoes and give some extra comfort.
• Stiletto heels can easily be worn down, so make sure you replace your heel tip early to prevent damage to the heel block (available at Mister Minit from $17.95).
• Always undo the buckles to prevent the leather and elastics stretching and breaking.

TREND: Birkenstocks

There’s no ignoring them, Birkenstocks are set to become the shoe of the summer! Whether you love or loathe Birkenstock’s sandals, there’s no denying the influence they are currently enjoying when it comes to shoe trends. Yes, they might have around some 240 years (and can be worn by eight and 80 year olds alike) but as fashion trends lean in favour of all that equals comfort and practicality the Birkenstock has become a mascot for all that is sensible yet stylish.

Care Tips:

• Both the cork and the soles of your Birkenstocks can be damaged by exposure to concentrated heat. If your shoes become wet, allow them to   dry naturally at room temperature.
• The footbed is constructed of layers of jute and cork covered in a suede lining, designed to absorb moisture from your feet. It is recommended to air your footbeds regularly to prevent a buildup of odours which occur from excess moisture and clean them using a Suede and Nubuck Mousse Cleaner.

TREND: Mules 

This season the mule, a favorite style of the 90’s, is back hotter than ever. Once a signature shoe for the over-60 set, it has received a youthful makeover. Whether a floral adorned flat, a chunky heel, or a sleek stiletto, the new mule has been transformed into a modern must have.

• The best quality shoes are made out of leather but leather is like skin and requires moisturising. Use a leather conditioner to nourish your leather mules.
• Store shoes in dustbag/box to prevent shoes from being knocked around and always handle with care.

TREND: Espadrilles

Espadrille shoes have topped the must-have list, thanks to celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Beyonce. These celebrities have been spotted wearing the espadrilles from French fashion designer Chanel and thankfully other designers have taken note of the trend too. These casual flats are perfect option to wear for those fun events you have planned this summer.  With vibrant on trend colours and hints of leather and lace, the Espadrilles have been taken to a new fashion level while still maintaining that classic style.

Fabric shoes require specific care to ensure their longevity:
• Ensure your espadrilles are protected from the elements by using Miss Minit Water and Stain Protector. Continue to waterproof shoes on a regular basis to protect from dirt, grime, spills and stains.
• When storing espadrilles, use a shoe tree to maintain their shape.

TREND: Sneakers 

They’ve been around forever, but only for the past four years has the trend been in the fashion focus, paired with anything that crosses our minds from skirts to sequined dresses to suit trousers or sporty attire. No longer a gym or geek’ish shoe, sneakers and trainers are being seen at Fashion Weeks and even on the red carpets.  Whether colorful, embellished or super athletic, sneakers have made a big impact in the world of fashion.

Keep your kicks looking fly:
• Feet perspiration can often leave our footwear smelling a little funky. Stay Fresh, a natural product made from silver available at Mister Minit will kill the bacteria, rather than just mask the smell.
• Always undo the laces when removing shoes to prevent excessive stretching and damage to the back of the shoe.
