1º Aniversary | Fash&Mark

3 Mar

Sometimes this is a fashion blog

Sometimes this in an anti-fashion blog, against silly empty girls

Sometimes this is a Marketing blog

Sometimes this blog hates marketing’s deceiving campaigns

Sometimes this is an activist blog

Sometimes this is an humanitarian blog just about social causes

Sometimes this is just a blog with cute images

Sometimes this is a blog with meaningful quotes

Sometimes this is an ecological blog

At times it is even a sponsored blog

But every single time it’s a reflection of me!

Happy Birthday Fash&Mark! :)

Thank you!

Thanks to the ones who follow, the ones who read, the ones who just want cute images, the ones who sponsor, the ones who like and dislike when the subject touches their hearts or goes against their beliefs. Also thanks to the ones who are trying to shut down Fash&Mark asking to “cease and desist”.

Social Keds

25 Jan

It looks like today it’s all about the Internet and Social Media! We can’t pass one day without searching something on Google, learn a bit on Wikipedia, writing on some blog or going social on Facebook, Twitter and its fellow wannabes…

All this plays an important role in our lives today, and despite our denial, you know it’s true! Come on… We all saw the protests against SOPA and PIPA some days ago, when the government decided it wanted to censor our beloved Internet!

Taking advantage of all this love and addiction Keds asked itself: if people love internet so much, wouldn’t they like it feature in their shoes?

And then… Internet just landed on your feet!

I think they should have one with all the TUMBLR rage faces… Just sayin’

Erasmus Best Friend|Pumpack

16 Dec

Did you study abroad or consider doing so? If you did, you know that you feel like taking everything with you. We never know how the weather will be, the fashion trends up there, who we gonna meet or even where we gonna go… So we want to take everything we have, just in case Prince Charming decides to appear and we have a prom-like dress to look like a his princess.

Of course I am exaggerating as usual, but I believe everyone has crazy thoughts like that when going abroad for a long period…

When I found this new Suitcase, I was thrilled! Finally a clever and useful idea for travelers –  a Vacuum Packed Suitcase.

While other brands are investing in suitcases with an expandable hood to accommodate more clothes, PUMPACK includes a pump that helps to compress clothes to make more packing room.

  • No more seating on top of your suitcase to close it
  • No more “Shit I can’t take this, cause it doesn’t fit”
  • No more wearing all the clothes you can, and looking like a snowman at the airport, because you can put them in your bag
  • No more paying for extra luggage! YEY!!

Pumpack is a 2011 red dot design concept winner.

Designers: Yejee Lee, Jongchan Mun, Seobin Oh and Woneui Hong

Helmet Experiments by Igor Mitin

7 Dec

One day, Igor Mitin decided that helmets were pretty boring… So he thought that maybe he could make them more appealing.

Igor Mitin created 14 different helmet concepts, which unfortunately are not for sale. These helmet experiments make a statement and are definitely a conversation starter.

See for yourself!

Which one is your favorite?

2 Dec

What color would you choose?

Attention Boys & Girls

27 Nov

A new creative underwear brand was born! You know how I love new and crazy concepts, right?

“Less underwear conversation and a little bit more action”

Jac5 is a super luxury’s men brand with a fun vision that was released on 11-11-11, so it already promised to be special. It is an underwear brand for men with comfortable and stylish undies (Armani, Diesel and Calvin Klein are competitors, so you know what I’m talking about!).

Why is Jac5 so cool?

Well, the brand identity was driven by… a dog, to be accurate, a Jack Russel Terrier: loyal, smart and, at times, barking mad. Surprised? (I find specially interesting the “barking mad” characteristic in underwear… I wonder what they mean with that… is that kinky?)

I love the way they defined their brand mission with a witty remark – “to create the best undies for man’s best friend” – got the pun?

Stores

Of course Jac5 store offers a truly unique retail experience! Besides buying underwear, which at times is already quite adventurous, you also can enjoy some art. Yes, there is an art gallery inside the store that supports up and coming artists through it “art and undies” program!

I wish I could go there (Hong Kong)… To have an idea how the experience might be, just look at this pic

Despite all this cool stuff, the brand creator is also pretty smart, cause he knows what this business is about :p

“We´re not just about men, it’s important to us that women also enjoy what we have to offer (after all, they are the primary influence in what men wear!)”

Wanting more? Check out JAC5 online store (they have free international shipping. YEY!)

New Record!!

18 Nov

I am soooo excited about this! Remember when I talked about a boom of visitors on my blog? Well… yesterday this just got insanely wild!

Yesterday, Fash&Mark got 2067 visits/hits , no more no less! It was a glorious day! :D

I’m really happy (actually I looked like Spider-man, climbing walls of excitement, but happy is a  proper word) and I just want to say thank you! If you were here I would hug you all really tight.

You may be thinking “bitch please, shut up!”, but this is truly important to me! Fuck yeah!!

Keep visiting! :)

And remember: Feedback is always important!

There is just one thing that I would like to ask you, beloved ones:

Anyway, Keep visiting :)

(and fucking comment. I want feedback. Make momma proud!)

Androgynous is the New Black

14 Nov

As usual on this blog, we gonna show you that you haven’t seen it all yet… Nope, you didn’t!

The world is changing, the times are changing… basically everything is. Men included!

Girls always had the chance to dress thousands of cool outfits through times – dresses, skirts, trousers, shorts, sexy lingerie – to paint their nails with every color available in this world, to drink for free in bars, and to use make-up. Guys always kinda envied that. We had benefits all the time!! And if they even tried to think about that, they were labeled as gays and ostracized by society. Well people… That’s not going to happen on our generation watch!

Behold for the new and magnificent products adapted to the modern man. Our amazing generation took the WO of “woman products”, broke the rules, ended cultural stereotypes, sexism and discrimination! Fuck yeah!

Guys, you have no more reasons to be ashamed! Let’s paint your nails and put you on some heels!

 

Heels for men

Mark Cramer and Coy Barton – 2 men with no fear at some NYC party!

“I literally look at girls and think, you have so many options. You have jumpers, you have skirts, you have dresses, you have pants, you have shorts. Boys have pants and shorts. Or suits and a shirt.” Coy Barton 

To use heels “’It’s a power thing. You’re higher than everybody else. You make more sound. You walk a different way. It makes your legs look better,” said  Alexander – a man who claims having 30 pairs of women’s heels.(source)

 

 

MAN-icure

EvolutionMan, founded by makeup artist Marco Berardini, recently launched a line of men’s nail polishes to meet the increasing manicure needs of males everywhere.

 

Manly Beauty Products

Face smooth like baby’s skin and imperfections covered – special products designed for a virile man’s face. Want more?

Genius | Oreo Tea

3 Nov

Oreo-Infused Milk. You now you want it.

Some smartasses or should I say “Masters of deliciousness” from Miami Ad School created *drums beat* The Oreo Crumb Case!

The Oreo Crumb Case stores the leftover cookie crumbs as a “tea bag”, so you can infuse Oreo flavor into your Milk.

Isn’t this the best idea ever? Hats off to these guys, please! This calls for a prize.

This idea fits the brand perfectly and has everything to do with its ancient/boring commercials about a kid and his dad dipping Oreos in a glass of milk. But the thing is: this idea is way cooler and it’s ecologic. Super trendy, straight to the target, straight to Tumblr, straight to young people’s hearts!  In my opinion every Oreo package should come with 2 or 3 Crumb Cases.

Waste no more!

Swallowable Perfume

2 Nov

That awkward moment when you buy a new perfume – which was just released – and you realize that you are old-fashioned. Spray perfume? Jeez, that is so last year!

Lucy McRay, an Amsterdam-based artist, and Sheref Mansy, a synthetic biologist, just created a swallowable perfume that emits fragrance from the skin.

Now, by steps:

  1. There’s a capsule containing synthetic fragrant lipid molecules
  2. You swallow it
  3. The molecules get metabolized by the body’s enzymes
  4. Then fragrant molecules are released through the skin
  5. Temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal will determine the strength of the fragrance. Your body has the power to create an unique fragrance
  6. At this moment, you took the expression “beautiful inside” to another level

Despite the announcement in August, Swallowable Parfum was not yet released; it’s still in the research phase. So you have time to “digest” all this info

I don’t know your opinion about this, but for me it’s too freaky! I’ll take a risk of being old-fashioned here! To eat perfume it’s not an option for me yet. What about you? Willing to experiment the new Swallowable Parfum?


Land & Water Caravan

28 Oct

If you always thought about buying a caravan and travel the World, this is definitely the best time to do it. Some amazing German designers just created this fantastische land and water Caravan – The Sealander

Sealander is an amphibious camping trailer that is both mobile home and boat.

Can you imagine a mobile home that can float on water?

This futuristic caravan comes equipped with all the facilities – a cooking and washing-up unit, cooler and heater, and a table and two benches which can be converted into a spacious sleeping area.

Sealander will be available in 2012 in various colors and materials and prices will start from 15.000€, it’s not much for a home-car-boat, right?

Start saving people! :p

Not the best presentation video ever… but you’ll get the thing!)

 

What do you think?

Zombie Boy | How do you judge a book?

26 Oct

 Do you know the zombie guy? The one from Lady Gaga’s “Born this way” music video? The one, who won the Guinness for having tattooed all of his body as a zombie?

Can you imagine him without tattoos?

Like this!

A cosmetic brand used the zombie guy – Rico Genest – on a commercial for its amazing concealer  – Dermablend Professional. Basically, they covered all his tattoos with its products. It’s crazy how they did it!

His reaction : “I think I’m ready to get a job!”

I love the concept of Dermablend campaign “go behind the cover”, the video and, of course, I am amazed by the product coverage capacity. Definitely a Must See!

Now, close your mouth and write us your opinion about this!

Free as My Hair | How to tame it – Results!

25 Oct

Oh my… I almost forgot this post. I know I promised to make the review of a “miraculous” product, which main objective is to tame and protect wild hair, like mine! So, some months ago I received a product that smells wonderfully to tame my rebel hair – See here on this Previous Post

I’m wearing it for almost 4 months and I must say that it works!!

Well, it’s not really an amazing miracle, as my hair doesn’t look like a Disney princess or something. But… the results are pretty good, since now my hair is way more tamed than it used to be!

How to apply: Apply after washing hair with when it is still WET! (This is important, it doesn’t work for me when I apply on dry hair – it gets a bit sticky).

Cool features:

  • It lets your hair smooth and light (no one would tell you apply some product on it)
  • It smells like fruits must smell in heaven
  • The package is big, and you just need to apply a tiny bit a day, so it will last forever (kind of)
  • It Will disciplined your wild hair and PROTECT it from external aggressions

Price:  10,90€  (how much would you pay for a miracle? :p )

Where can you buy it? Here @ Boticario– they also have shampoo and conditioner, which I don’t use, so I can’t talk about it! :)

The result is near this –  Before and After


(((The Ticklers)))

18 Oct

 “Combining great shapes and colors with an intimidating amount of power and a choice of speeds and pulsations we are truly something else. They are still Ticklers though, waterproof, made from super-smooth body-safe silicone and very, very quiet. So, still part of the family, just a bit more grown up.”

Still a bit confused about what this is?

Starting by its name it already looks pretty interesting.  The Ticklers is a new brand of Swedish-designed vibrators (Ikea someone?) in which design and concept are put in focus.

Ticklers are charged by USB and they look like a modern design artifact, you can even put it in a shelf in a visible place at home, that no one will ever guess.

 

Do you dare? Visit the website to see more ticklers!

Trends for the Average Men

23 Sep

Well girls, this post is entirely dedicated to boys. They also deserve to be aware of what’s fashionable at the moment. I haven’t seen a lot of posts for boys on other “girls’ blogs”. Of course there are a lot of fashion blogs and websites focused on men fashion, but as you all know, not all the boys like extravagant clothes or care about what’s going on on ALL the runways and specially, they are not interested in dressing golden trousers with a fancy cowboy hat and a pink purse (yes, I’m exaggerating! But you got the point)

Dear Boys,

If You:

  • Have a pretty normal life
  • Pass great time of your day at your work or school,
  • Don’t have much time to dress up in the morning
  • Don’t care at all about high fashion
  • Dress pretty much without light, because it’s fucking in the morning and you don’t want to open your eyes
  • Still ask your mom or girlfriends to help you with “shopping time”
  • Aim to look at the mirror and feel like “the only guy in the world” (that’s asking too much, stop acting like a girl!)
  • Want to look pretty, be fashionable (in an acceptable way) and hear someone saying “wow man, you look great today” or “love those shoes”

Well, then probably you will like this post. No more chat-chat, I’ll show you the latest trends for the coolest average man!

 

Accessories

Guys, one really really important accessory that should make part of all your outfits during Fall and Winter is THE SCARF! Do never leave home without it! Despite keeping you warm (yeah, yeah boring stuff), it makes you extremely hot! No kidding! It adds the extra “je ne sais quoi” to your look.

And some nice gloves

And a bag

 

Fall/Winter Average Outfit (H&M)

 

And look at this… huh… I mean… shorts! Will look nice on the beach. (girls, this one is for you!)

Cheesy Marketing

21 Sep

Literally cheesy – As my grandmother would say  “Gosh, these guys’ inventions these days…”

Have you ever seen Cheese Pencils? Guess not, huh?

As you know, now it takes a lot more than the average packaging and traditional marketing to sell a product. That’s why marketers and designers are trying hard to get their product to be noticed. This one will definitely call attention on the supermarket shelves. So, give this guys a break!

“The Deli Garage Parmesan Pencils are shaped like oversized pencils, where the leads contain three different flavors: truffles, pesto and chilli. With the built-in grating function you can sprinkle delicious, appetizing flakes of Parmesan cheese on your meal. A scale on the pencils and on the back of the packaging doesn’t just list how much of the Parmesan Pencil is needed for each dish, but it even how many calories the portion contains”

Sounds good and tasty to me, because I fucking adore cheese!


Would you buy this?
