Sometimes, you know things but don’t realize them until someone else mentions them to you. That’s how it works with fashion. We constantly look for tips from fashionistas, experts, and designers to validate whatever we have been following. Moreover, when we read stuff, we tend to realize that we have been missing out on tiny details and how different people have different perspectives on what they wish to offer.
The internet has a plethora of information and most often than not, you will come across a wide range of fashion tips to help you. However, it is important that you don’t just blindly follow what you read because sometimes what you might be reading could be the weirdest fashion trends and statements of all times. If you want to read tips that are interesting and cover almost everything you need, we’ve got you covered with our list. Take a look at 5 essential fashion tips that come in handy for every girl – irrespective of how old you are and what you do:
1. Know your Body Type
This is like a beginner’s tip. It is the most basic thing to help you determine what kind of clothes you can carry and how you should dress up. Everything revolves around this and, therefore, is one of the most vital tips for you to focus on.
2. Wear the Right Bra
What most women don’t realize is that they’ve probably been wearing the wrong bra size for years. Wearing the right intimates is extremely vital for both fashion and health. You must know your size correctly and also know when to wear what. You just need to know it all when it comes to lingerie.
Scarves are perfect for every season. Woolen, satin, silk, linen, blanket etc. – each one comes in handy. Some are suitable for the winters while some are good for the summer with the remaining being perfect for fall fashion.
4. Wash your Clothes Appropriately
The washing technique for every cloth is different. Don’t wash the whites with colours. Avoid putting your bras in the washer. Use low heat setting for the delicates and pay attention to the detergent you use for sweaters.
5. Have the Essentials in your Wardrobe
A fashionista’s wardrobe is incomplete without leather, trench, denim jackets. These are classics and every girl must have them in their closet. They can be used throughout the year in one way or the other.
Another must-have in your wardrobe is red pumps. Pumps are great and if they are red in colour, it’s legendary. They give a different high and you can confidently walk in them without any inhibitions. Every girl must experience this high.
While the above-mentioned tips are important, confidence is what makes or breaks everything. Nothing works as confidence does and there’s no workaround for this one. Just be you and you’re ought to look beautiful.
Fashion does not have any strict rules. There are only some guidelines, tips, and expert advice that you can follow as per your will and choice.
The Sydney Festival brings thousands of visitors to Pitt St Mall each year – with record numbers expected over the event in January. We thought that we would do a bit of research to give you the best idea of what you can expect on the Festival’s most popular period – Family Week – which brings families together from all over Sydney for a fantastic day in Sydney’s CBD.
Family Week lasts from the 20th-25th of January and runs from 10am-3pm daily in Hyde Park North, with entry to the event located near Archibald fountain. Spend the last days of the school holidays exploring the Festival Village, the Lawn Library and the giant art exhibit, Higher Ground.
Wanting to unwind and relax – well don’t worry as there is plenty of live entertainment in the Festival Village, with music situated in ‘The Vegetable Plot’ and the ‘Vintage Quartestra’ areas of the village – allowing both you and the kids to have a boogie into the afternoon. There are also many hands-on activities for the kids include postcard creation and free artwork sponsored by Hotbed Designs, which allows children four and up the opportunity to design their very own Sydney Festival carry bag with a range of craft materials.
The Australian Museum is also running activities which allow children to have an interactive educational experience whilst exploring the vast items within their collection. Some of these include:
· Animal House – a block-style play area for children 4-8 years
· Dinosaur Hunt – a fun program in the park which gives kids 3-6 years the chance to create their own dinosaur and take it home
· Life in the Park – explore with real scientists what kind of animals live in Hyde Park and learn techniques to study insect and plant life in your very own home. Suitable for kids between 6-12 years.
· What is it? – museum staff are running an information booth which allows families to bring images and specimens of things they can’t identify, helping you solve the mysteries of your home and garden! People of all ages are welcome
· Volcanoes and what lies beneath – learn how volcanoes erupt, see a rock which can actually float on water and make your own gas in an interactive workshop for kids between 3-10 years
Remember we are expecting hot weather – so don’t forget to pop on over to Pitt St Mall to grab sunscreen, a hat and some drinks to keep you and the kids hydrated. In the meantime here is a list of all the programs run by the Australian Museum so you don’t miss out:

What would Australia Day be without fireworks? We know how important it is for you to have the best Australia Day possible that’s why we have all the information you need to plan your night with the family or friends to see what tourists flock in their thousands to see on our Sydney harbour foreshore.
Darling Harbour’s Cockle Bay plays host to the Australia Day Fireworks in 2015 – with the event being called the Australia Day Spectacular. The whole Darling Harbour area is involved to create an inspiring multi-media and fireworks display which serves as a fitting finale to national celebrations. This year, international DJ sensation Havana Brown will be providing the music live on stage in the Darling Quarter Precinct followed by a special concert by various acts.
Pyrotechnics, light and laser technology and specially created buoyant sculptures will serve as the backbone to support the main fireworks display with this year more fireworks being used than ever from special positions in Tumbalong Park and across rooftops around Darling Harbour – bringing the show closer to Sydneysiders than ever before.
Food and drinks will be available from various venues and alcohol is not permitted except for licensed venues. There is a full ban on glass and in the event of rain – the performance will go ahead regardless. The Australia Day Spectacular will commence at 7pm and end at 9:15pm with fireworks a chance of occurring in the last half hour of the show. We would advise that the best place to watch the fireworks in Sydney would be Cockle Bay Wharf but to arrive at the venue early to avoid disappointment as crowd numbers are expected to be quite large.
Public transport is the best method of accessing the venue with vantage points being an easy 5-10 minute walk from Pitt St Mall. Light rail is also available to Darling Harbor from Central Station and ferries stop at King Street and Pyrmont Bay Wharves on a regular basis. If driving is a must – there are a number of carparks in the area but hourly charges are in excess of $10 per hour at most venues.
Only being five minutes walk away, Pitt St Mall is extremely close to The Rocks on Sydney’s harbour foreshore which proves to be a favourite with locals and tourists alike on Australia Day – here’s why!
Free croquet, beautiful scenic ocean views and live music by local talent make the Rocks unbeatable on one of Australia’s rare public holidays. Events run by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority operate from 10am-6pm in George St, First Fleet Park and Atherden Street.
On Playfair Street, George St and Jack Mundey Place – the Rocks Market will reopen for the third day in the row to provide wonderful examples of locally designed fashion, jewellery and unique Australia art. There will also be food vendors and fresh produce available for sale not just from Australia but from around the world – trust us when we say your taste buds will thank you for coming!
On The Green at First Fleet Park will be a barefoot music spectacular featuring home-grown artists such as Indigenous signer and songwriter Benny Walker, Lolo Lovina, The Bombay Royale and Dustin Tebbutt. The artists demanded beer on tap to keep their thirst quenched throughout the day and you also can benefit with hand-craft beer and ciders being served all day long at The Rocks Brewing open air bar.
In Atherden Street, The Laneway provides another set of live acts of a different variety with singers and songwriters drawing inspiration from the cobbled street pavements and ageing aesthetics of the venue, located in the very heart of The Rocks. Artists include Little May – a fresh indie act with elements of folk music and contemporary sounds, Winterbourne – a Central Coast folk rock duo and the Lulu Raes – a Motown inspired pop ‘n’ roll band from the inner city.
Finally The Common on George St is where the party is at – with Astroturf being rolled out to facilitate a live countdown of Triple J’s Hottest 100 – with the Pit Stop featuring live beat boxers and DJs who are sure to keep the crowd entertained as we look for Australia’s favourite song.
Pitt St Mall is the perfect place to come to for a break before the Australia Day fireworks and also with many stores embracing the Australian spirit – you should be able to find some unique items at bargain prices!

Online advertising, also called online marketing or Internet advertising, is a form of marketing and advertising which uses the Internet to deliver promotional marketing messages to consumers. It includes email marketing, search engine marketing (SEM), social media marketing, many types of display advertising (including web banner advertising), and mobile advertising. Like other advertising media, online advertising frequently involves both a publisher, who integrates advertisements into its online content, and an advertiser, who provides the advertisements to be displayed on the publisher’s content. Other potential participants include advertising agencies who help generate and place the ad copy, an ad server who technologically delivers the ad and tracks statistics, and advertising affiliates who do independent promotional work for the advertiser.
Online advertising is a large business and is growing rapidly.
In 2011, Internet advertising revenues in the United States surpassed those of cable television and nearly exceeded those of broadcast television.:19 In 2012, Internet advertising revenues in the United States totaled $36.57 billion, a 15.2% increase over the $31.74 billion in revenues in 2011. U.S. internet ad revenue hit a historic high of $20.1 billion for the first half of 2013, up 18% over the same period in 2012. Online advertising is widely used across virtually all industry sectors.
Many common online advertising practices are controversial and increasingly subject to regulation. Online ad revenues may not adequately replace other publishers’ revenue streams. Declining ad revenue has led some publishers to hide their content behind paywalls.
A Business directory or business directory is a website or printed listing of information which lists all businesses within some category. Businesses can be categorized by business, location, activity, or size. Business may be compiled either manually or through an automated online search software. Online yellow pages are a type of business directory, as is the traditional phone book.
The details provided in a business directory varies from business to business. They may include the business name, addresses, telephone numbers, location, type of service or products the business provides, number of employees, the service region and any professional associations. Some directories include a section for user reviews, comments, and feedback. Business directories in the past would take a printed format but have recently been upgraded to websites due to the advent of the internet.
The arts are a vast subdivision of culture, composed of many creative endeavors and disciplines. It is a broader term than “art”, which as a description of a field usually means only the visual arts. The arts encompass the visual arts, the literary arts and the performing arts – music, theatre, dance and film, among others. This list is by no means comprehensive, but only meant to introduce the concept of the arts. For all intents and purposes, the history of the arts begins with the history of art. The arts might have origins in early human evolutionary prehistory. According to a recent suggestion, several forms of audio and visual arts (rhythmic singing and drumming on external objects, dancing, body and face painting) were developed very early in hominid evolution by the forces of natural selection in order to reach an altered state of consciousness.
