goodnighties-ionized-sleepwear

Belinda is a fashionista (that ISN'T HER in the photo by the way!) She always has cutting edge couture and accessories in tow. I wouldn't say she's a slave to fashion, though. She prefers the 'classics' to what happens to be 'in the moment'. For example, her Kelly Birkin - which she never leaves home without. Although, she does have it in many colours, sizes and materials. … [Read more...]

Got Crotch-Rot? Get Give-n-Go!

We are so clean and smiley. We never change our pants!

17 COUNTRIES. 6 WEEKS. ONE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR. That's the manufacturer's tagline above, not mine.

Reefs Flip Flops – Sandals with Bottle Opener

Close Up of Bottle Opener in Sole

Here's a pair of sandals that would make Inspector Gadget proud. You bought a six-pack to kick back and watch the sunset. Argh - but it's imported beer with non-twist, bottle caps. "No problem," Says your friend - taking off one of his flip flops and prying off the bottle cap with it. Classy. For the sake of applauding innovation, let's not ponder for a moment on how … [Read more...]
