All the suites (the hotel holds over 350 people) are equipped with modern amenities, and are elegantly furnished with private balconies facing the sea. There are also panoramic views from the pool, jacuzzi and poolside bar. Its stunt-like qualities doom what could have been a fantastic episode, forcing us to take the good with the bad and shackling the best parts of this series with a flatlining soap opera. SGU deserves better. Frankly, so does it could have been a masterpiece . We all love dressing up and we all love to experiment with our looks every now and then. When we go through these experimentation phases, we end up with a lot of jewelry that we do not use afterwards and many people often throw these away. But this jewelry can be salvaged and turned in to something that you would happily wear.. There's a business in Bombay that's far bigger than fashion -- the all-consuming, awe-inspiring, mob-inducing phenomenon that is popularly known as Bollywood -- and each season it steps in to help sell clothes, or at least help designers make the front page of Bombay Times. Designer Vikram Phadnis (sponsored by Ink Infrastructure for S/R12) called upon Malaika Arora Khan, famous for her tantalizing dance moves in Bollywood blockbuster Dabangg, and Malaika's lesser known sister Amrita, to be his showstoppers. The Karmik store enlisted up-and-coming star Sonakshi Sinha (coincidentally, also of Dabangg fame) as their showstopper -- and a handful of lesser known labels and designers choose to present other showstoppers on their ramps. Kuczynski said they started the fundraising ball because the Herbie Fund is such a good cause. It helps children from around the world who are about to die because they're denied medical care in their own country based on race, religion or financial status. Every $35,000 raised helps bring one child to the Toronto hospital to receive life-saving or life-altering surgery.. Weitzman knows how to create shoes that light up a room. For years, he made "million-dollar Oscar shoes," diamond-covered footwear that a celebrity would wear to the Academy Awards. He gave that up at the height of the recession, but says he can do pretty much the same dazzling look with crystals.. Before I gained weight, I'd always walked a lot and done crunches, hand weights and leg lifts. About a month after I joined Weight Watchers, I started exercising again, taking it easy at first. I'll walk one day and do toning exercises the next, and I gradually increased the distance and number of repetitions.

Fashion is showing its support for those affected by the Christchurch quakes by "rebuilding" a Levi's Classic Denim jacket to fundraise support for the Rebuild Christchurch charitable foundation. Several fashion labels and industry figures will customise and "rebuild" a jacket, including designers from World, Zambesi, Nom*D, Sabatini, Miss Crabb, Jimmy D, Ruby, Liam, Deadly Ponies and Loumina. See the results next week, as they are showcased in a video launch - to be auctioned off on Trade Me later this year. * Herald Online Life Style Editor Nicky Park will be blogging from the New Zealand Fashion Festival.
