Four Essential Items You Need to Wash Your Clothing With

Four Essential Items You Need To Add To Your Laundry

Via Armelle Habib

( 1. )

Baking Soda

Baking soda is harmless to the environment and has mild alkali qualities that help it dissolve grease and dirt. Baking soda can be especially helpful in areas served by hard water: Adding baking soda to a washing machine’s rinse cycle will result in clothes that are better rinsed, softer and more stain resistant.  Add 1/2 cup baking soda to top-loading machines or 1/4 cup for front-loading machines along with the usual amount of detergent to give the detergent a boost. Baking soda can help increase bleach’s whitening power so much that you’ll be able to use less bleach.

Like baking soda, vinegar can serve a lot of different purposes in the laundry room. When using vinegar in the laundry, use distilled white vinegar, which generally can be found in gallon jugs near the baking or laundry aisles in the grocery store.  A mixture of half water and half vinegar makes a good stain pretreatment.  Spray a little onto the stain a few minutes before washing and then wash as usual.

Vinegar  can also add a kick to regular laundry detergents. To soften a standard load of wash, add 1/2 cup vinegar during your machine’s last rinse cycle. In addition to softening, vinegar added at this time will help reduce lint buildup, and it tends to help pet owners with hair buildup on their fabrics.

Adding salt to your laundry helps to restore and maintain bright colors in fabrics.  Additionally, it can reduce yellowing in whites and is efficient in eliminating mildew in fabrics.  Simply shake a little into your wash for softer and brighter laundry (think Purex Crystals, minus the potentially harmful chemicals).  Just be sure to use regular old kosher salt (or sea salt), not Epsom salt.  The latter is a composition of magnesium sulfate, which will create hard water (hard water is caused by the combination of the two minerals calcium and magnesium, so epsom salt essentially makes your hard water even harder, thus having the opposite effect on clothing).

Also, placing some sea salt in a sachet and washing & drying your laundry with it will help to eliminate static cling.

Lemon Juice

Adding 1/2 cup of lemon juice to a load of laundry will make the entire load smell fresher.  Surprisingly, adding lemon juice to a load of whites will also whiten the load.  It also works as a powerful stain remover when combined with cream of tartar, and is especially efficient at removing sweat stains from clothing (see the cheat cheat below!).  Lemon juice is also a great air freshener.  To make your own, combine equal parts lemon juice and water in a spray bottle, and use on your apparel, on your furniture, and around your home for odor control.

This Summer’s Hottest Swimwear Trends

The Hottest Swimwear Trends for Summer 2016

via Fashionisers

via Fashionisers

Summer is lurking around the corner and it will be no time when we immerse our feet into the hot sand and take a swim in salty water (or at least pay a visit to your nearest swimming pool).  While the anticipation builds for all of the summer’s plans, the most important question remains: What do I wear?  Luckily, Miami Swim Week gave as pretty much a clear picture of what this swimwear season will look like, and we must admit that we are absolutely thrilled about the upcoming trends. Some trends from the last season, such as extreme cut-outs and sporty cut-away bikinis are still on the top, while we have spotted a number of new and exciting trends.

Check out the latest trends below.

Long Sleeve Swimsuit

Lisa Marie Fernandez Farrah neoprene swimsuit, $415

Lisa Marie Fernandez Farrah neoprene swimsuit, $415

Spotted on Swim Week long sleeves are effectively taking over the scene. We have seen them on Belusso, 6 Shore Road, and Acacia, and we will continue on seeing them on the beaches this summer. No longer are the long sleeves reserved for surfers- now, ordinary beach visitors are wearing them, too.

Orlebar Brown Nyla cropped rash-guard top, $173

This look is a fresh take on swimwear fashion, and we salute the risk. Long-sleeve swimsuits can be found in different varieties, from sleek and sophisticated, to fun & playful.


Melissa Obadash Sicily metallic bikini, $220

Melissa Obadash Sicily metallic bikini, $220

The beginning of the year was celebrated as the season of metallic, and there are ways for everyone to wear it. Furthermore, it is the choice of the year for weddings, so that naturally transitioned into swimwear fashion. Gottex, Belusso, and Hammoc showed us how to rock this trend (in accents or full metallic). Not only it is a great way to shine, but it will also make your sun kissed skin look even more amazing.


Kore Swim Pyramid Top, $119.00

Kore Swim Pyramid Top,

Remember last year’s and still present trend of cut-outs? Well, this one is a similar trend- only now, the cut-outs are covered with sheer material. The design is ideal if you want to combine your outgoing and bold personality with your more conservative side. The fabric designs are made in a way which is contouring the body, while enhancing your finest features.

High-Neck Halter

Marysia Mott Scalloped Swim Top, $143, & Bottoms, $136

Mott Scalloped Swim Top,
$143, & Bottoms, $136


High-neck halter is the ultimate hit of 2016.  Halters can be very flattering for your back & shoulders. This year’s models come in a variety of styles – from sporty to pretty prints.

Animal Prints

Brigitte Animal Print Bikini, $187.33

Brigitte Animal Print Bikini, $187.33

Animal prints perhaps seem a bit ‘80s, if you ask us, but there is no denying they will be just as big now as three-four decades ago.  Safari-vibe is very chic right now, so earthy colors & jungle animal prints look best.  They will highlight sun kissed skin.  Amp up the fashion factor with an African head wrap or a simple floppy sun hat.

Long Top

Maaji 'Lakes and Rivers' Underwire Bandeau Bikini Top & Crop Top, $74.00

Maaji ‘Lakes and Rivers’ Underwire Bandeau Bikini Top & Crop Top, $74.00

If you are on the lookout for a flattering bikini that elongates your body and looks gorgeous – search no further. The upcoming season brings us the new trend of a long top – a 2016’s take on the last year’s trend of high waist. This twist on traditional bikini top is super stylish and easy to wear for different body types.

Though we have seen so many new fashion trends on the runway, these six innovative trends stood out amongst the crowd.  Will you be wearing any of these trends on the beach this summer?  If so, which ones?

8 Essential Style Tips Petite Girls Need to Know

As anyone who is deviates from the “average” range in apparel knows, it’s difficult to find things that will fit perfectly.  Being 5″2, I’ve struggled with finding things that actually fit right without having to enlist the help of a tailor for each item purchased.  Jeans, skirts, and sleeves are too long or too short…a maxi skirt will never fit you if you’re under 5″5…and seriously, what is up with “Petite” or “Short” jeans?  At 5″2, they have always looked like capris on me, making me wonder how short are the people they were created for?

Here are 8 shopping tips for my fellow shorty’s.  Or shawty’s.  Or, as my auto-correct would like to believe,  shanty’s (although I have no clue as to what shanty’s are).

Now that you know what to look for when shopping, here are my top picks of where to shop for petite clothing that fits perfectly:

Moderately-Priced Brands:

Express, J. Crew, Anthropologie, and Ann Taylor LOFT.


Theory, BCBG, J. Brand (I actually love their petite-sized denim!).
