Being informed is always in style

On some of those hectic mornings when the plants need watering, the cat needs attention and the kids are fighting, I just don't have time to comb my hair let alone deal with shoelaces. I can't remember how many times I've walked out the door in my slippers. Well, on those days, there's one type of shoes I can spare the time to put on – slip on shoes. Slip on models eliminate those features that make putting on shoes an extra chore on your already packed to-do list. No laces, no zippers, no straps. You just slide your feet into the shoes and you're good to go. And you don't even need to bend down to put them on. I can slide into my slip ons at the same time as I'm putting on my coat. And for a busy mum getting to save a few seconds here and there sure adds up at the end of the day.

The great thing is retro never goes out of style!

If you care about your home’s appearance, not just the indoors but the outdoors too, then you’d do what’s best to keep the outdoor space eye-catching and spotless instead of focusing on the interior décor solely. The reason for this isn’t only to do with your...

Starting from the late 1800s and onwards, motorcycles have advanced a lot, from hydraulic forks and multi-cylinder engines to ABS braking, RBW throttling and electronic fuel injection. All these fancy terms and more, have made motorcycles more sophisticated than ever, both on paper and on the road.

If your little one is new to the gymnastics scene, you should know that besides the ballet skirt, the leotard is one of the most important pieces of dancewear.

Whether you are a professional dancer or still a beginner, there are a few essentials and several accessories that every dancer should always have in their dance bag. However, when it comes to the shoes, there's no such thing as one type fits every tap. For each style of dance, there is a different type of shoes.
