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
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?

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?
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!)”

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
“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)
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?
What’s your opinion about this new trend?

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:
- There’s a capsule containing synthetic fragrant lipid molecules
- You swallow it
- The molecules get metabolized by the body’s enzymes
- Then fragrant molecules are released through the skin
- Temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal will determine the strength of the fragrance. Your body has the power to create an unique fragrance
- 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?
Lays (or Walters, I guess it’s the same brand) has a new vending machine that doesn’t accept money. It accepts potatoes! That’s right!
While in the machine, the potato passes a lot of phases (wash, peel, cut, fry, salt and packaged) then you receive your fresh package of potato chips.
See the video, it’s pretty cool!
PS. Despite looking real, the process that you see is a 60 seconds’ animation. You kinda receive the same greasy and manufactured “potatoes” that you always did from Lays.
It sucks, I know! This could be real. It would be pretty nice and healthier! And way more interactive!
My question is: Why the fuck do they want our potatoes? Trying to annihilate the competition?
Fall/Winter Average Outfit (H&M)
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)
- 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!
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

Today I found out this online store – Spool No. 72 – while stumbling… and I fell in love.

Improv Everywhere calls itself a “Prank Collective”. What is that? I don’t know. Apparently a bunch of people created some kind of group that enjoys causing the “chaos and joy” around NYC. Please understand chaos as some kind of challenge of the social norms, or the so called “normal life”. It’s not like beating people or stealing.
Anyway, their last mission was to construct a wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and a sign where you could read “say something nice”. This was placed around New York and then left alone.
See people’s reactions and messages in the video, it’s pretty cool! Go check their website for more infos and more funny “missions”. These guys are damn cool!
BTW this project was produced as a part of the Guggenheim Museum exhibition stillspotting nyc.
Wild Patterns Secret Tip: Feel like a lioness, act like a lioness, dress like a lioness, walk like a lioness. Be a lioness!
“OMG! A lioness on the street, how the fuck did you get out of the zoo? Someone call the police or something” – If someone shout this, please stop acting weird! You’re exaggerating!! :p
Neutral Secret Tip: To look good wearing this trend you gotta feel like you run a multinational company. Try your “I’m superior than you” facial expressions in the mirror before leaving; or else you gonna look like you’re dressing your mom’s or dad’s clothes – and that sucks!
Look at these models’ faces. They’re not kidding, people!
