New Fashion Trends That Will Heighten Your Look

Many people are insecure about their bodies, whether it is their height or weight there are many ways to look great and feel comfortable. From the cut of your shirt to the height of your shoes, every piece must coordinate. The key to looking good is to stay on top of new fashion trends. You can do this by making friends with buyers from your favorite stores or simply reading the latest fashion magazine. Some people look at the models in the magazines and think they can never look like that but if you follow the style for your body type, you will look just as great as they do.

Color

If you are conscious about your weight, it is important to select the right colors. Stripes and prints can cause you to look heavier than you truly are. In some cases, vertical stripes can help you to create a thinner look. If you are a heavier person, you should wear darker colors as the colors will absorb the light thus giving you a thinner appearance. If you are a thinner person, wearing bright colors will make you appear bigger.

Shoes

For people you are worried about their height, the type of shoe you wear can make a difference. Wedge shoes are currently the trend for females although women who are tall already should avoid very tall shoes. If you are a shorter woman, a wedge shoe can add a few needed inches in a subtle way. Women are not the only ones looking to add a few inches to their height; men are also self-conscious about their height. For men there are many fashionable elevator shoes to choose, from business to casual there is something for every occasion. These shoes have a hidden insert called a lift that raises the heel of the person wearing them, giving the appearance of being taller.

Increase your business by selling gas barbecues this summer

With the summer now ahead of us and June's weather starting off beautifully, demand for commercial and domestic gas barbecues looks set to soar. We look at the business opportunities for catering and equipment suppliers.

The allure of the BBQ
Britain's love affair with the barbecue is growing, as more people decide to enjoy 'staycations' rather than head off abroad and try to maximise outdoor time with family and friends. Barbecues also capitalise on our increasing informality around eating and entertaining and are hugely popular for a range of celebrations. This means that demand for barbecues and associated products is growing and entrepreneurial businesses are capitalising on the trend.

The outdoor experience
A gas barbecue can add real sophistication to a garden and provide a superior barbecue experience - allowing the user to create a range of delicious foods conveniently and rapidly. There are a wide range of models available, which are ideal for dining outdoors, as well as portable models which are perfect for camping and caravanning. Calor sells a wide range of gas barbecues and BBQ grills which are perfect for outdoor living. These begin from small and portable models, ideal for taking on holiday or for use in smaller outdoor spaces - through to large commercial size barbecues of up to six feet of more. These commercial barbecues are fantastic for large events and Calor also sells gas canisters for fuel. These canisters are easy to operate and store and their cans can be returned to Calor for refilling; to save money and the environment by recycling.

Selling gas barbecues

Businesses looking to capitalise on this trend can sell barbecues directly, or via a re-seller or affiliate model online. It is wise to sell a range of models and sizes, to suit all needs and requirements, as well as associated products such as gas grill cleaner, tongs, serving utensils, barbecue covers, storage and more. Think broadly and you will see plenty of opportunities to maximise sales. Consider launching promotions too at this time of year, as competition hots up from supermarkets, DIY stores and the like and invest in good marketing to get your products to the market. Direct mailings, door drops, events, website promotion, online advertising, PR and other channels and tactics can be used effectively and investing in excellent customer service will see your customers coming back for more.

The corporate market
Commercial catering businesses may wish to sell large size commercial gas barbecues, along with accessories such as gas, tongs, gazebos and other outdoor essentials for parties and larger scale entertaining. It is worth remembering that the corporate market is also a good target for these products, as barbecues are also popular for staff and client events. If you can offer linked services such as catering, staff and music, you may be able to market full entertainment packages to the corporate sector.

So regardless of your business interests - or whether you are a consumer looking to get outdoors this summer- look to the huge range of gas barbecue options and consider the possibilities. Here's to a long and hot summer!

City breaks: a weekend wardrobe for a weekend away

Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Venice or New York? Choosing where to go is hard enough, but you’ll want to have as much fun as possible in the short time you have once you’ve decided. Making the most of your time is essential for getting the best from a city break so why not start by packing light. If you can fit your clothes and toiletries into a small hand luggage sized case or bag you’ll save loads of time at the airport so you’ll have more time to spend sightseeing. With some careful planning you’ll be able still be able to dress to impress but have the freedom of being able to step off the pane and get on your way.

Consider a few things before you set off: your destination, the weather and your itinerary.

Try and cover every eventuality with as few items as possible by mixing and matching individual pieces so that you don’t need a full outfit for every day.

Wear your most comfortable jeans to travel in, but take some chunky beads and a colourful neck scarf to dress them up with a top for a casual evening out. Layering works well too and if you team a fine ribbed sweater with a vest top and jeans you can take off your jumper if you’re lucky enough to get warm weather and keep it rolled up in a bag.

Make sure you pack a more sophisticated dress if you’re planning dinner in a fancy restaurant but keep it simple and it will be more versatile. A bright tunic dress can be accessorised with jewellery for the evening or dressed down with leggings and flat pumps for sightseeing during the day.
