‘Down With Love’ Movie Fashion Style

Whenever I need an inspiration for color in fashion, I always revisit my beloved movie ‘Down with Love’. This frivolously delicious and hilarious movie, starring Rennee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor, has itself become a bit of a vintage movie. It is a spoof on the Doris Day and Rock Hudson comedies of the 60s.

The bubbly blonde and the dark, handsome guy, with the ‘girl trying to work hard to get somewhere’ kind of story line. It certainly makes a very deserving ‘chick flick’, perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon. However, the main attractions for me are the costumes. Make no mistake, this is certainly forward thinking in terms of the whole vintage thing. I guess the craze about ‘Mad Men’ really started with this movie.

The costumes were designed by Daniel Orlandi. I am extremely impressed with the fact that it had no real vintage clothing at all. All of the costumes were complete re-designs, fitted and turned into the funny colorful feast of a movie. The whole movie is a nonstop extravaganza of fashion display, overloaded with rainbow colors, beautiful fabrics, and matching outfits. I adore the ensemble of a pink and white wool jacket, over a super-fitted wool dress, matching the color of the jacket and topped with a pair of white gloves for style.

Daniel Orlandi must have read all the magazines from the years 62-67 to draw his inspirations for the movie. “We didn’t want to use vintage clothes on Renee, or any of the other principals, because we didn’t want it to look shabby,” says Orlandi, who instead used vintage fabric for many of his designs. “We wanted the clothes to seem fun and surprising, not campy.”

It definitely does not look ‘thrift shop’, in fact the cut and fit for both actors are simply amazing. Apparently, he intentionally designed the garments with lots of vibrant colors, even though they were not traditional colors for a blonde. I think the bright colors agreed with Renee very well, reflecting on her character and the comedy plot. The riot of colors, lavender, lime, fuchsia, snow-white, magenta and ice blue are certainly a feast for the eyes.

Don’t be afraid to copy the fashion of this movie though. All the expertly matched outfits, certainly put all of us who wear a GAP tee shirt and jeans to shame. We could always lighten ourselves up with a brightly colored scarf, a fitted dress with neat tucking details, or a pair of snazzy pumps. We should never be afraid of color, after all we can still wear the classic black coat. Get out there and wear those color and treat your friends to a colorful feast.

Will One Be Successful With a Travel MLM Opportunity in This Economy?

Question: What would you do if you had more time and money?

Chances are, travel is one of those things you would love to do.

Given the current economy, people want to make money and to save money. Some will cut back on their most pressing needs, and others will go totally frugal.

We cannot argue, travel is something we would all love to do.

Given the size of the industry, people will no doubt still travel.

However, your choice of travel MLM business opportunity, as well as your own individual traits and characteristics will decide whether you find success or not.

Given the various travel MLM organizations around, such as Global Resorts Network, Coastal Vacations, Your Travel Biz, and so many others, you have so much choice in what company you choose to join.

The price point of whatever travel product or service you choose to advertise will however influence how well you may eventually do.

People will definitely be hunting for a bargain as they look to save on vacations and taxes for themselves and their loved ones.

So the low-end travel products and services will bring in the masses. These have universal appeal, and of course have to be better priced MLM travel products and services than what consumers are already buying, without sacrificing quality.

The mid-point and high-end opportunities and products may be viable, though perhaps a little more difficult.

For business builders, given the large size of the industry, there are definitely many opportunities that can be exploited, again with price being a major determinant.

World over, the baby-boom age band is nearing retirement. It’s been proven that for the most part, people in their later years spend more money in certain industries, particularly, healthcare and leisure travel.

A travel home business opportunity, if well positioned, can be a perfect offering for this generation. Not to say this is the only target market of course, as you also have budget travelers, adventure travelers, people seeking timeshare alternatives, corporate travelers, and many others.

Travel is something everybody does. They either book with you or Expedia, Travelocity, of one of the other travel providers.

In some cases, a travel business opportunity can provide more competitive fares than traditional travel companies and search engines, because of their bulk-buying concept.

A travel business opportunity will offer you multiple ways to earn money upfront, while you build a residual income. You can market cruises, vacations, holidays to dream destinations at dream prices, as well as conventional travel.

Some of these opportunities offer an option to become a travel agent or consultant, and market leisure travel at very competitive rates for the most part.

Success with travel will depend on your offering something that offers the customers usefulness, or helps them create or save money without too much hassle or difficulty.

Travel is a broad and very competitive industry, but targeting a small niche within this industry, gives you focus and can lead to greater success that trying to take the whole market.

Travel network marketing companies carve out niches within the broader travel industry. In marketing travel, it may well be wise to choose a company that works within a niche that best suits you, and that shows signs of growth in the years ahead.

Travel is not a difficult concept to explain. Compare this to other industries, where you have to explain technicalities and complexities involved with the products (science and formulas behind them).

The easier the product is to talk about, the easier it is to duplicate.

While there will undoubtedly be so many ways to market your travel MLM business opportunity, it will all depend on the effort you put in, as well as what the best market for you is.

Champions Online Travel Power Guide

Champions Online does not include mounts like many other MMOs, it does however include a large variety of travel powers, allowing you to get around in a way fitting to your hero. Nearly any concept can have an appropriate travel power, and Cryptic has been adding new skins for travel powers every once in a while, enabling for more specific concepts to have a better matching way to get around.

This article will only be discussing the travel powers themselves and not the Advantages that can be accessed for some of them by spending Advantage Points.

At level 5 you can choose your first travel power, with a second being available at level 35. When it comes to getting around the various zones in CO, having a way to travel through the air is much more convenient than being stuck on the ground. Since you can get 2 travel powers I would recommend at least one that lets you travel through the air, even if it doesn’t fit your character’s concept. It’s not necessary to do so, but it’ll make it easier to travel through certain areas, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the various zones.

With the exception of Teleportation and Tunneling, all travel powers have multiple stages resulting in various speeds. In combat or without charging is the slowest and gradually building up to the 3rd and fastest stage, which can be accessed by fully charging the travel power. Jet Boots are the exception to this as it uses 3 stages but can not be charged.

All travel powers that have a graphical effect to them can be colored to some extent by gold members. Silver members are stuck with the default look.

Flight/Fire Flight/Rainbow Flight – Probably the most iconic super hero way to travel as many classic comic characters can fly and is an easy way of seeing someone who has super human abilities. in CO flight offers great maneuverability and moderate speed. Flight has no real noticeable graphic, but many types of wings will flap or glide while flying.

Fire Flight is the exact same as flight, except your character is on fire.

Rainbow Flight is an exact copy of flight, except your character leaves a rainbow trail while flying and has a multi-color glow at their feet.

Super-speed/Light Speed – Super-speed is the fastest base travel power. It mainly enhances run speed, but provides a bit of extra jump height and makes it harder for enemies to notice you, which is handy as you’ll likely be passing by enemies fairly regularly as you travel. While you have to go around buildings and other obstacles, the speed of it generally makes up for it if you know your way around.

Light Speed is an exact copy of super-speed, except your character leaves a Tron-like light trail behind them.

Teleportation – Teleportation is one of the more unique travel powers and also one of the most active ones. Unlike the other travel powers, teleportation can’t remain active, but rather by activating it you get a short period of time where you get a very maneuverable flight as well as gaining stealth. After teleportation ends you remain stealth a few seconds and slowly fall towards the ground and can choose to reactivate teleportation right away if desired. Traveling long distances requires hitting teleportation each time it fades, so is more involved than other travel powers for traveling. If you enter combat shortly after using teleportation, you get a 10 second cool down before being able to teleport again.

Teleportation is currently bugged and will not always grant slow fall when you exit a teleport. This can cause you to take fall damage if your character hits the ground before teleporting again.

Super-jump/Rocket Jump – Super-jump gives your character the ability to jump really high and fast. Super-jump offers a good in between for characters who don’t want fly but don’t want to be stuck on the ground either. Generally it’s fairly safe as even if you land near a ground of enemies, they’ll rarely get a chance to react before you’re out of distance, but it does occasionally happen that one or more enemies will hit you. You have to hit your jump key in between each jump, so it’s a bit more involved than most other travel powers. It’s also a bit more difficult to use indoors as there isn’t much room to jump in some places and there may be objects such as pipes that you can run into, slowing you down.

Rocket Jump is exactly the same as super-jump, except your character is propelled by rockets on their feet.

Acrobatics – Acrobatics is a run and jump increasing travel power, where both fall in between super-speed and super-jump. At rank 1 it’s probably the most difficult to travel with power as it’s not too fast and you can’t jump high enough to get over medium size obstacles. It also doesn’t grant any stealth like super-speed does, so you’re more likely to take damage while traveling. At higher ranks it works a lot better for traveling, but still remains kind of weak compared to other alternatives. It is one of the best to use in combat for increased maneuverability.

Tunneling – Tunneling causes your character to go underground and move at an increased speed. It can allow you to pass by enemies without them noticing you, but you will continue to take damage from DoTs or attacks that were incoming even after you’re underground. Tunneling can not travel pass obstacles in the ground, no matter how small. This makes it fairly difficult to use and really only worth taking if it fits your character. Despite your character being underground you still have to maneuver around all obstacles, even small ones that can normally be run past or require a tiny hop to get over. It’s not very fast either and takes a few seconds when activating or deactivating the power.

Swinging – Swinging is another fairly active travel power. Once activated, your first jump will send you high into the air and pressing and holding jump after that will cause your character to grapple into the air and swing forward. If held your character will continue to swing back and forth and if jump is released your character will release their grapple and go in whichever direction they were swinging at the time. This allows you to adjust your height and speed depending on when you release. If going for speed it is fairly fast, but does requiring timing your jumps properly. It does not require anything to grapple onto, you automatically grapple even the air and can essentially fly with it. It’s very limited use indoors as you don’t have much room for swinging and can easily run into objects.

Hover Disk/Earth Flight/Rainbow Flight: Cloud – These powers give you a less maneuverable version of flight, but give your character an object to stand on. The object is just for show and serves no special person beyond it’s look.

Hover Disk gives you a sci-fi/tech style disk to stand on. It also has the benefit of being slightly faster than flight and the other two powers, although I believe it is slightly less maneuverable.

Earth Flight gives you a piece of earth to stand on, which varies in appearance some depending on where you use it. If you’re in the air when earth flight activates you get a cloud instead.

Rainbow Flight: Cloud gives you a cloud fairly similar to using Earth Flight in the air, except it’ll always give the cloud and the cloud has a rainbow trail similar to rainbow flight.

Ice Slide – Ice Slide is probably the most advanced travel power to get good use out of. When using it your character stands on a piece of ice and leaves an ice/water type trail behind them. It’s base speed is similar to hover disk, however, it is capable of being the fastest travel power if used properly. Also, unlike other flight powers, ice slide will slowly fall to the ground if you’re not moving up. Traveling up slows your speed a bit, but traveling down increases your speed. With the proper technique you can get great speeds with it.

Jet Boots – Jet Boots are very similar to flight, except instead of being able to charge them to full speed, they always start at their slowest speed. In exchange for that penalty though, jet boots are a decent amount faster than flight. They also offer pretty good maneuverability as well. When using this travel power, your character has a colored flame beneath both feet. This is my favorite travel power overall as it offers good speed and maneuverability and not being able to charge it is a very minor penalty.

Irresistible Fashion Style for Ladies

Most people especially ladies and even men too like to see themselves as highly fashionable but they will not get far with their efforts unless they can make perfume as part of their daily habit. It increases sophistication and class. Everyone loves to smell good; and that is why perfumes are now valued by both women and men alike.

Basically a woman would go for one distinct perfume which she makes as part of her wardrobe and wears it everywhere she goes. If you have this kind of habit, the best thing is to mix your own type of perfume with several other aromas to create a very unique finish. This is what you need as a fashion statement of your very own kind. Here is how to select the best ladies perfumes.

The Sarah Jessica Parker’s Lovely is very popular with women and it is very hard for it to go away. Then there is Aqua di Gio from Armani.

It is quite obvious that Armani is huge in this industry and carry perfumes for men and women too.

Just on the mention of Armani Code and the ladies will immediately think perfume. It has a little bit of ginger, wood and a touch of honey with every spray.

Another irresistible scent for ladies is Lacome’s Attractio. It is stunning, luxurious and can only be compared to Flower Princess by Vera Wang. This one has a whiff of citric plus other flowers. Mature ladies prefer the perfume called Eternity but the younger ones go for the fantastic scent of Curve Kicks by Liz Clairborne.

The more active women go for the lasting freshness of Lacoste’s Touch of Pink. Then there is the oriental richness and sophistication in Opium.

With such a great variety there is no reason why you should not wear good perfume. There must be a type that will suit your taste and preference. That is why you must know what type of person you are and your individual preference will lead you to one unique perfume that will become your accent.

Home Furniture – What Do You Need to Consider?

Any home isn’t a home until you have personalized it, until you put your unique stamp on your home, it is essentially a box with four walls and a roof. Now that doesn’t sound very enticing or inviting does it? How do you go about choosing home furniture to make your mark and turn your house into a home? There are several routes to take when making your choices of furniture. Much of your choice will come down to a few critical facts such as budget and the size of your home.

The first thing you need to have is time, there is no reason to rush into making your home furniture purchases. In fact if you do rush your choice your likely to end up with pieces your really don’t want to live with. Home furniture is too important to make mistakes with; any mistake could be very costly. In making your selection of furniture you need to consider what your family needs are. If you have very young children at home then that may well dictate some of the items you choose for your home.

Look at the composition of your family, how big should the sofas be to accommodate all of you comfortably? Yes, that cream leather suite may look gorgeous, but how practical will it be if you have children with crayons and pens that could mark it permanently. What about family and friends outside of the home, do you entertain regularly? If you often have dinner parties then essential in your home furniture selection would be a dining table and chairs. If you don’t do diner parties but do have friends round you may need to look at a second reception room rather than a dining room, and that will dictate the furniture you choose.

Examine what you want from your home furniture, do you want cheap, cheerful and virtually disposable or would you prefer solid, long lasting pieces of furniture. Therefore, you need to look at every aspect of your home and family life when you are making your furniture selections. Even if you do want modern furniture that you are likely to change regularly, it’s still worth considering some key pieces of home furniture you can keep in your home. You can mix and match modern with more traditional and give your home a very eclectic feel.

Maybe something to consider is do you have pets? A cat or dog can do untold damage to some home furniture items. Therefore, if you have either of these pets then you need to choose furniture that can take the wear and tear from the animal’s claws, paws and sleeping habits! Cats love to curl up on furniture and if that beautiful sofa has dry clean only covers then it could prove costly to maintain. Dogs do damage with their claws to wood and soft furnishings so that is something you may need to consider when making your choice of home furniture.

New Homes, Furniture and Consumer Trends, Discussion

Some look back on the economy of 2000 through 2002 and say what a disaster 3 million jobs lost? Well one could also argue that the 43 million Americans who moved into new homes far outweighs the 3 million citizens who were looking for work. There are more people who are still looking for work who have gone into what they considered substandard vocations for instance they may be working as a manager at a Home Depot store when they were formerly an aerospace engineer with a Ph.D., this is a little disheartening to say the least but it is a fact of life in America. As people are tapped out and maxed out with their credit cards they do not have the buying power necessary to be able to continue with the trend associated with new housing starts in the average of $6500 been spent after the fact for the following period of one year.

I remember talking to a furniture sales rep, who in 2001 said he just gone through the worst sales year in his history as a salesman in 2000. Mostly due to all those new houses sold where the customers had come into buy furniture on time with companies who had in house credit which were now burdened with no pays, obviously these companies were not restocking and those competing against such companies had cut back in inventory having been out sold in the past. He decided on buying a franchise from us, The Car Wash Guys in San Antonio, Texas. The next year after he started his business mostly cleaning new car dealerships, which were very good due to the fact many people were buying new cars and Mexican nationals were coming over the border from Laredo, Texas gate to buy cars in San Antonio since their economy had picked up in response to the manufacturing which was moved over the border to cut costs in the downturn in the economy and the trend of folks coming here to work and sending money back to Mexico. The furniture salesman found himself quite busy with more business than any one person can handle and subsequently within a very short time, was able to make friends with all the major car dealership owners of the area in increase his business to four units and a detail shop. Still he was strictly working for car dealerships with only a fraction of the total business maybe 15%. Then what happened?

The housing boom picked up in people or buying furniture again, at the furniture trade shows everyone was preparing for in incredible year as a matter fact they were preparing for incredible five years, he could not help but moon light in his old profession as sales came easy once again. In 2002 the furniture business did pick up in response to new homeowners moving into new homes. These new home-buyers were expected to spend between 4000 in $6500 each on things such as upgrades to the home, swimming pools and furniture. Drought related issues cut short the number of people buying new swimming pools. Instead they bought barbecues, new decks, landscaping, SUVs, boats and FURNITURE. The cycle had come full circle and it is what every career person calls those golden years. Although the $6500 per new home sale did not quite pan out with the new ownership society it was substantial due to the number of new homes.
