I figure the helmet that gets sold for the most amount should be the daddy, having a legend like Luke Skywalker to support is not getting cheaper, doesn’t matter how old he gets.

Clipped At Birth: SANDRA BACKLUND

Her pieces show the hard work and time that went into making each one of them. Once upon a time you would had to order Sandra Backlund’s custom made designs to fit your body, now with Maglificio Miles, an Italian knitwear company who Ms. Backlund has collaborated with, Sandra Backlund garments can be worn by some of the fashionable ones who cannot or just doesn’t want to spend a lot.

I dare say that Backlund creations will keep us interested for years to come, because of  her innovative three-dimensional garments that shows us her own signature signature silhouettes that you either love or hate, nothing in between.

Food & Accessories, Music to My Ears.

Someone has read my mind, after all these years of praying for it, and putting it out there, two of my favorite things have been put together, literally!  Now this is where things could get a bit tricky, especially for a combo request like food and accessories. You have to be specific or else you never know what you’ll get in return.

These bags are how I’ll keep the healthy stuff close by from day to night!  May also have a problem with people trying to steal my food.

I will happily but these boots into my mouth and keep it moving.  Much better than putting it where the sun doesn’t shine.

For my chic dare devil friends.  You can eat, and be safe at the same time.  Don’t have to do anything, just let the watermelon juice drip down.
