Unpacking Creativity with Puma (** ,)

So I was invited by Puma down to their Braamies store, to check out their awesome Creative Suitcase, which is customization station that makes creating your personalised sneaker so wonderfully easy and fun.   The designing of your sneaker is done on a tablet that you easily pop out of the suitcase, and the rest of the suitcase is filled with swatches and cuttings of the different types and colours of leather & fabric one can use on the shoe. So with music jamming in the background, I happily played around with different colour combo’s and debated whether to go with red suede, butter or patent leather, etc. Being a buyer, and a lover of working with product like this, I was in heaven, as I’ve also become quite the shoe-holic! (^^ ,) The experience was really awesome and I wish I could buy all my shoes… actually all my clothes this way *sigh* oh what a wonderful world that would be!

Leather Look!

Nails Inc, the amazing & innovative nail polish brand from the UK recently landed in SA (sold exclusively at Edgars and Red Square) and I got to try out some of their interesting varnishes… and boy oh boy, was I like a kid in a candy store, I mean they have something for anyone and everyone. From the normal lacquers we’ve come to know and love, to trendy types that dry to look like denim, concrete and my fave leather (also Alexa Chung’s favourite *wink*)… The leather look dries quickly down into a textured chic leather look finish! I welcome you Nails Inc with thirsty nails and open arms.
