What is the Most Popular Jewellery Metal?

Posted on Posted in Fashion

Whether you’re looking for something special for you or a loved one, you will find a trip to a variety of jewellers is a must. With each store you set foot in, you are sure to see there is an eclectic mix of jewellery that will appeal to your tastes – or you think they will for that special person in your life.

However, when you realise that not only the style is different, but the metals of jewellery are too, your decision just became all the more challenging to make. Below, you can learn all about the jewellery metal on offer and why you would select one over another.

Gold

Any number of jewellers will tell you that gold is one of the most precious metals and valuable jewellery materials you will come across. It’s timelessly elegant, dense, offers an unbeatable shine, and is a standout favourite for engagement and wedding rings. However, it is more expensive than less precious metals.

Silver

Silver is one of the most popular metals used in the creation of rings and other jewellery, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a striking white and shining color, while also once being considered more precious than gold. While it’s now more affordable than gold, it doesn’t make it any less desirable. In fact, because of its price and style, it’s often more preferred for rings and other jewellery.

Waist Trainers

Who Wears Waist Trainers?

Posted on Posted in Fashion

Waist trainers are becoming more popular in everyday life as celebrities such as the Kardashians take to sharing their pictures on social media. Toted as the pictures of perfection by fans, more and more people are looking to see what all the fuss is about, and rightly so. Waist trainers are helping women to become more confident versions of themselves while learning discipline and self-love at the same time.

While it might seem like you have to be a part of some kind of elite club to be able to wear a waist trainer, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Below we’ve included some of the many types of people who wear waist trainers.

Those Who Want A Flatter Stomach

After giving birth or just leading a poor lifestyle, you may desire a much flatter stomach than the one you currently have. While diet and exercise can help you achieve this goal, a waist trainer can also complement these two lifestyle alterations as well. By wearing a waist trainer either under your clothing or on top of it, you’re training your fat to be distributed evenly – not just around your mid-section. Over time, you will notice that your stomach is far flatter, even when you’ve stopped wearing your waist trainer.

Women Who Want to Accentuate Their Curves

Many women see their curves as their most valuable asset and emphasizing them even further is often a valid aspiration. For women who wish to benefit from complete body confidence, wearing a waist trainer can often help. Waist trainers accentuate your hip and bottom area while providing a defining waist curve as well.

HUDSON JEANS x CREATIVE RECREATION

Posted on Posted in Fashion

Is it just me or is Creative Recreation on fire these days. Rumor is Cr8 is ranked number three best selling shoes at Nordstroms following Cole
Haan and Prada. It’s refreshing to see these guys deserve all the hard work they put into it. While I was working at Hudson Jeans the past year,
I struck a conversation with Robert and Rich about bringing together the world of premium denim and luxury leisure footwear. Naturally our talks
developed into creating a unique product. We chose the Fidel model because it was the perfect shoe to base off denim fabric. For this shoe we
utilized white patent in the front with premium leather, actual Hudson Jeans denim fabric used in reverse and regular, as well as creating a
unique insole design. I designed horizontal stripes because I was enjoying the resurgence of conservative patterns as of late ie polka-dots.
The bottom of shoe is bright neon yellow. Overall I’m very satisfied with the final product. Expect these to drop very soon at the EM CO-OP and
other fine retailers.
