BE SMART!

It’s not long to go now before the cold winter weather starts taking it’s toll on ones skin. With less moisture in the air, there is less moisture in our skin and indoor heat can be just as dehydrating. Icy winds can also strip moisture from exposed skin. And, sadly, so can long hot baths.

Start protecting and boosting your skin now. Don’t wait for signs of damage. Dermalogica’s Overnight Repair Serum is an excellent antidote to winter skin. By synchronizing with nighttime circadian rhythms it enhances skin nourishment, recovery, cell renewal and hydration levels.

What’s in it? Argan oil, rose oil, carrot seed oil and jasmine oil.

How to use it? Smooth 4-6 drops into your skin or blend with your nighttime moisturizer. Easy.

LEVI’S® 501® – GETS CUSTOMIZED & TAPERED

The Levi’s® 501® Jean, the world’s first-ever blue jean featuring a timeless straight leg, relaxed fit and signature button fly, has earned its status as the most coveted jean in the world, lived in and loved by generations.

But for the past few decades 501® jean wearers have been customizing their jeans, most commonly tailoring the legs for a closer fit. So, in 2015, Levi’s® introduces the new 501® CT (Customized & Tapered) and continues to offer the much-loved Original 501® jean in an extensive range of sizes, colours and finishes.

The new 501® CT has a little more room at the waist so it sits slightly lower for a more relaxed fit, and the leg is tapered from the knee to the ankle.

MAKE A STATEMENT!

PUMA has teamed up with filmmaker/artist/designer/DJ Vashtie Kola to put together this suave take on a classic street sneaker.

Finished in an autumnal tone of Burgundy across its upper, the base is constructed of premium Nubuck leather and upon closer inspection, an intricate croc-inspired pattern is prevalent throughout, adding a subtle hint of luxurious flair. Offset by a clean off-white rubber sole, finishing touches include tonal side-stripes, laces and Gold Puma branding across its vamp, as well as “X”s gracing its heel tabs.

If you’re looking for a simplistic pair of sneakers that you can wear with just about anything – look no further!
