For women jewelry always works. You can get us a bangle or a necklace & we'll be happy. I personally always like handbags & shoes for a gift. I'm kind of spoiled that way. According to the trends for the season knee high leather boots ar in & will work as a wonderful gift. Those boots will always be in style no matter how many times you wear them just as long as you go with the trends.
For men they usually like anything electronic for a gift such as the iPad. If they are more fashion forward I would suggest to get a black coat that will go with their body frame. A black coat will always be in style for years to come so you can never go wrong with a coat. You can also get them a watch, a designer one if they are into fashion. Also you may consider a black messanger bag that can be used to carry books if that person is a student or double as a briefcase for the office.

Just this past year I heard about this British rock band called The Subways. They have been around since 2004 and have 13 albums total. There are 3 band members total; the Lead Singer- Billy Lunn, his brother & Drummer- Josh Morgan, & the Bassist- Charlotte Cooper. They made 8 music videos of their hit songs over the years and their last gig was the Hevy Music Festival in the 6th-8th of August 2010 in the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park,Kent. They are extremely popular in the UK and their biggest competitor in the US is the band Boys Like Girls. I absolutely love this band, their music is amazing! Visit their website http://www.thesubways.net/ for more information on their upcoming performances and about the band itself.

According to my mother my sister has recently become obsessed with Skype. She goes on it to speak to my aunt and play jokes on my mother. Yesterday my sister barges into my moms room & tells her that my Aunt Arlene put a video on you tube talking trash on my mother. So my mother is watching what she thinks is a video but really it was her Skype playing a trick on my mother. They thought it was hilarious! My mom was pissed that they would dare play a trick on her. But now she is trying to convince me to use Skype to speak to her, instead of using the phone. My mom thinks it's the coolest thing ever & wants everyone to use it too. Not sure I want to 'cuz I hardly like to speak on the phone! Why would I want to have a conversation using the web cam?

I live in Downtown LA, there is always something going on, some event that is occuring. Traffic noise is forever happening , especially during the weekend. I am used to noise that it feels like background music when I am sleeping. Last night however was louder than usual with blaring rap music playing and people cheering and laughing. I went on my balcony & took pictures of the event that was going on. It seemed pretty exciting with the music and laughter. The view is great and I got to see the whole event, I felt like I as part of an audience watching the excitement winding down. I love the night in LA!

Apparently they got married this weekend in India! About time they tied the knot! I've been waiting for news about this for a while now. It's like their joined at the hip. I guess it must be love. According to MTV.com, the singer and the comedian married in a traditional Hindu ceremony attended by their friends and family, who had been spotted landing in India with the pair earlier in the week. Last year Brand said to reporters, "Marriage takes place in the heart. So in that sense, we are already married." Isn't that sweet?! I think they make a cute couple good luck to both of them.
One of the trends is a retro 50's style that inlude a lot of dark core colors and bold accents. Mostly skirts and sweetheart necklines are what dominate the trend. You can also go with vintage 50's garments if that works better for you.
Nina Ricci's combo bustier & curve hugging below the knee pencil skirt.
Miu Miu long sleeve blouse & above the knee skirt.
Mulberry double breasted wool jacket and matching skirt.
Versus sweetheart neckline dress with pleats.
Another trend goes with a more modest style with long skirts and jackets. Most designers have gone long for day & night wear with a more dramatic feel with each garment.
Fendi's long wool coat & ankle length skirt.
Michael Kors's double breasted wool coat and high waisted long skirt.
Salvatore Ferragamo cargo long sleeve pocket button down & high waisted below the knee skirt.
The final trend is more decadent with metallic colored prints and brocades. A lot of gold flouriches and gold lame frocks to bring together the trend.
Alexander McQueen's red & gold brocade dress.
Blamain's brocade coat and metallic printed leggings.
3.1 Philip Lim metallic tuxedo jacket and flare metallic pants.
