HAPPY NEW YEAR !!



Je vous souhaite à toutes et à tous une délicieuse année 2011 !!

Merci d'être toujours là à suivre mes petites futilités "modesques"...et puis en ce début d'année, je tiens aussi à avoir une petite pensée :

- Pour toutes ces femmes qui par soumission et non par conviction portent le voile, ces mêmes femmes dont la liberté est terriblement bafouée !

- Pour tous ces malheureux petits enfants qui ne connaitront jamais l'insouciance et le bonheur qu'ont nos enfants, se retrouvant à travailler dès leur plus jeune âge dans des usines de textiles ou autres...

Pensons à eux, nous qui sommes de grands privilégiés, que cette nouvelle année leur apportent plus de joie et de sérénité !


Et pour bien commencer l'année voici un calendrier très scintillant tiré du Magazine Bazaar Espagnol avec la divine Sheila Marquez parée de cristaux Swarovski !

Ecco Shoes

ECCO is a Danish shoe manufacturer and retailer founded in 1963 by Karl Toosbuy in Bredebro, Denmark. Originally established as a footwear manufacturer, the company has since expanded into leather production and leather accessories. ECCO is the only major shoe company in the world to own and manage every step of the production process – from cow to consumer. ECCO opened its first retail store in Denmark in 1982, and has since expanded to become a globally recognized brand with more than 3,800 branded sales locations throughout the world, selling an extensive range of men's, women's, and children's shoes.


ECCO was established in 1963 by Karl Toosbuy in the small town of Bredebro in southern Denmark. Toosbuy founded the company on the philosophy that “shoes must follow the foot” and not the other way around. His idea was to produce shoes that combined innovative technology, Scandinavian design, and traditional craftsmanship with an understanding of the human foot, and how it works.


In 1978, the company made its first real breakthrough, and gained widespread international recognition for its comfort footwear, when it launched the "Joke" shoe, followed by the classics "Free" and "Time". These shoes were the first in the world to feature a sole imprinted with the manufacturer's logo. Over eight million pairs of shoes from this group have been sold since then. Throughout the 1980s, the company expanded its operations internationally. By 1982, sales reached 1 million pairs of shoes annually. In order to accommodate the increasing demand additional production was established in Portugal, and under license in Japan and Cyprus.


The 1990s saw major additions in the ECCO collection, including the launch of Kids, Golf and Performance shoes. ECCO built its own research and design center, named "Futura", in Denmark in 1996, and opened its own beamhouse in Indonesia and tannery in Thailand a few years later. In 1998 the first flagship retail store opened on Oxford Street, in London. By 2000, ECCO owned every step of the production process, from design and leather production to branded retail sales.

ECCO owns tanneries in the Netherlands, Thailand, Indonesia and China. ECCO’s tanneries are among the leading manufacturers of quality leather to the fashion, sports, and car industries. ECCO has engaged in a research program to reduce the environmental impact of the tanning process. Approximately 80% of ECCO's shoes are produced in its own shoe factories in Slovakia, Thailand, Indonesia and China, and 20% under license in a number of countries including Indonesia, China and India. ECCO projects a brand image of a level of comfort and style generally associated with exclusive high-end shoes, while retailing at prices that are a little above average for the mass market, and within reach of a wide range of consumers.
ECCO shoes are sold in more than 90 countries. The company has expanded its operations into markets in Asia and in Eastern and Central Europe, Canada, and the United States. Their products are sold through 900 mono-brand stores, as well as independent retailers and online sales.

ECCO boots by the Danish shoe manufacturing and retail company ECCO have been around for almost fifty years, but their breakthrough into the mainstream shoe market has occured in the past decade. It is safe to say that their surge in popularity is due to the aesthetics, comfort and quality of their goods and not clever advertising or just plain speculation. ECCO boots and shoes are of great value indeed. ECCO currently offers a range of thirty different boot series, ten of which are designed for men. The thing most people associate with ECCO is comfort and this comfort they offer has become somewhat of a trademark. They try not to make compromises in terms of comfort or ergonomics when it comes to design. Wearers may find that their boots are roomier and much more comfortable than most boots on the market today. This consistency in smart design and comfort has helped ECCO boots develop a loyal customer base, which is growing by the day. As a new autumn and winter seasons are on their way in the northern hemisphere, it is time to start looking for proper footwear that would protect you from snow, ice, rain, cold and every possible combination of the these things. ECCO products, designed to be used in the cold Scandinavian areas, will meet your every expectation

Wedding Hairstyle

The wedding day is a special day in the lives of all women where you fret over the perfect dress, make up and hair style for the occasion. Here are some pointers that have to be kept in mind while choosing the perfect hairstyle for the special occasion.
Most brides make the mistake of loosing their personal identity when making hair and fashion choices for the wedding day. The most important thing to remember is to make sure you like what you choose for the wedding day. The first thing you have to do is discuss your wedding hairstyle with your stylist, perhaps some months prior to the big day. This is because some brides may need to grow their hair or to work towards a new hair color to achieve their perfect wedding hair style.
Remember, the bride with a flair for the dramatic with a strong personality carries off pretty much anything.

Wedding hairstyles for short hair are easy to style. Through the use of various sized curls throughout the hairstyle, such as large as well as medium and smaller curls that are pinned throughout the head, the short hairstyle can be made into a glamorous style that can be worn through day, as well as night. Short hairstyles are easy to add hair jewelry and embellishments to as well. Through the use of flowers which can be pinned through the entire head of hair, or a pin which can be used over one ear, the hairstyle can be created into a unique style that can match the dress.
