Sultry Little Sweetheart

It's often hard to find that fine balance between sexy to over-doing it, no? Our tip is to only choose one spot to accentuate. Think long sleeve top and mini skirt, or spaghetti top with long jeans. Always be aware that too much of a good thing will turn sour!

This is no ordinary tube top. Vertical lines create an optical illusion of a leaner and slimmer body. And there is a bow to add a little spark and surprise to keep the tube from being just yet another tube top! Dressy, a little couture yet with a little spunk? Like it? We love it! Yours for only RM 20!

----------------------------------

Lucid

Here is the thing, people tend to have the misconception that sexy means showing skin. Wrong! This piece right here is not that body hugging nor revealing yet it oozes sex appeal. This top lets you get away with looking sexy without seeming as though you are trying too hard. Sort of that sexy bed head look, no? Get yours now, at only RM42!

Music Review: Iron Man 2

By Xavatos

Now that everybody (almost everybody, I hope) has watched Iron Man 2, do you remember the opening sequence? Iron Man flying, making his way to the Stark Expo, and there were dancers dancing to an awesome electric guitar riff? That was AC/DC’s “Shoot to Thrill”. That was fantastic, wasn’t it?

I remember feeling very awed by the choice of music, and how well the song blended in with the movie.

This is what happens, when John Favreau puts AC/DC –the legendary rock and roll, metal band – with Iron Man 2, the anticipated sequel, together.

AC/DC has been around for almost four decades, although some of the younger generation have not heard of them, they are one of the greatest rock and roll, heavy metal bands around. They are hitting their sixties soon, and they are still rocking hard.

This is the official Iron Man 2 soundtrack, which has AC/DC’s best singles and a couple of tracks from their studio album. “Shoot to Thrill” and “Highway to Hell” was featured in the movie; the former was one in the opening sequence as mentioned earlier and the latter was the ending, as Tony Stark cruises down the road. “Iron Machine” is also featured in this soundtrack, which ironically is the metal, unpainted version of Iron Man prototype; the War Machine (piloted by Tony Stark’s friend-cum-sidekick, Lt. Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes). Ivan Vanko (he was the whip-parrot loving villain) seems to get his own theme song, in the track “Evil Walks”, which sounds like a villain scheming and planning.

While the score has been yet to b release, it is said to be done by John Debney, and is assisted by Tom Morello (yes, THE guitarist from Rage Against the Machine, and also, an ex- Audioslave member!). Something to look forward to, yes?

I personally like “Shoot to Thrill”, “Guns for Hire”, “Highway to Hell,” and “War Machine”. It all starts with strong guitar riffs, empowered with drums and strong vocals. It doesn’t get repetitive, but addictive.

Here are the track listings, compiled for your convenience:

P/S: The author is an AC/DC fan. If you want to try to listen to AC/DC, get their greatest hits album, which is something they do not have. Try this soundtrack instead, which definitely works as well.

How to Pull it Off: Blazers

By Farah Farzanna

This is week on How to Pull It Off we are discussing on blazers. Face it, blazers in our humid weather? Seems pretty hard to wear it, right? Wrong. With the correct materials and accessories, the hot temperature will not be a bother.

www.easonglamrobe.blogspot.com

----------------------------------------

Meeting the Parents

So you’re meeting his parents for dinner. You must bear in mind that it is imperative to look gorgeous yet not over-the-top. Blazers with striking color is great, however pair it with soft toned tops and bottoms so they do not clash colors. Wear heels to add height and make legs look longer and a headband to keep the flyways.

---------------------------------------------

Movie Night Out


Don’t be afraid to combine colors! Colors are great if you match them appropriately. Pair a black blazer with a striking colored skinny jeans. While keeping others in the same color palette, wear colorful accessories to enhance the soft tones!

-----------------------------------------------

Summer Day


For a walk in the park or for a shopping spree, put a dash of color in your life with a yellow sundress! Since our country is all sunshine all year round, this is perfect wear all the time! While keeping others toned down, perk it up with a pair of turquoise earrings which complemented the yellow dress perfectly. Brighten up a dull blazer with a bow brooch!

Tell us what you think! Any tips from you on how to style up a blazer?

Book Review: The Time Traveler's Wife

By Xavatos

The Time Traveler’s Wife

By Audrey Niffenegger

Audrey Niffenegger blends in time-travel (without sounding like a science fiction novel) and romance into a masterpiece – “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, which is wonderfully and creatively written novel.

Our hero, Henry DeTamble suffers from Chrono Displacement Disorder, which is a genetic disease, and it causes him to time travel involuntarily – to the future, or the past. There are times, when he travels to the past, and relives the memory of his late mother; or to the future, meeting the child they would have. It all starts, when he travelled to the past and he met the love of his life – Claire Abshire, who was out at her parent’s meadow, doodling away. A sound from the bushes intrigued her, and she threw her shoe at him. And out came Henry, who was stark naked, covered only with a beach towel. And that was their first meeting. She was six, and he, 36.

Now, are you interested? No? No, not yet, of course.

We are introduced to their families and friends. Although they are minor, side characters, they do play some important parts in the novel as it develops – Henry’s longstanding girlfriend, Ingrid Carmichel, Claire’s close friends, Charisse and Gomez, Mrs Kim, Henry’s caretaker/neighbour/landlord/friend; and all this, yes, makes it a better read.

The couple continued their unconventional way of dating and eventually married. Like every other couple, they have their ups and downs. Claire was upset and disappointed about her disappearing and never-there-when-i-need-you husband; Henry was frustrated at Claire’s determinacy to risk her life to carry a baby. Claire does eventually conceives, a baby girl by the name of Alba DeTamble, who has time-travelling abilities, too. Unlike her father, however, she is somewhat able to control it.

Throughout the novel, we do read a little foreshadowing about Henry’s death. Yes, the hero dies in the end. However, due to his time-travelling abilities, he does appear every now and then. We then see the family moving on, until the epilogue, where we see Claire, old with age, who is waiting for Henry --

"He is coming, and I am here."

What got me glued to this novel is the author’s ability to write fluidly, sequencing the future and foreshadowing without revealing much, and then reverting back to the current timeline. For starters, it may be quite confusing and erratic, but it will make sense later on the novel. The author touches on various aspects of humanity – love and loss, death and dying, drugs.

I personally recommend this. If you are looking for a good read or a romantic novel, put aside your Mills and Boons, and give this a try. It does take you through Henry and Claire’s life – their first meeting, their families and friends, their trails and tribulations, their married life.

It leaves a bittersweet taste in your mouth.
