STYLE ICON LAUREN HUTTON 70s Supermodel

Gracing the covers of Vogue numerous times and known for her iconic style, Lauren Hutton has made popular; the oxford shirt, wide leg trousers, panama hat and safari jacket that we still see today. Her photo shoots leave us captivated. Her raw natural beauty glowing and it is this glow that we still see and love in her today. Amongst a sea of plastic faces, she remains natural and beautiful.

S/S LOVING

There are so many potential trends, influences and inspirations to work this season, that we only wish we had more space to fill. Summer is all about individual style. Mismatching is MEGA BIG so whatever your taste, it's almost impossible to go wrong. There has never been a better moment to start expressing your inner self and stand on the fashion frontline. The skill of blending trends, new with old and balancing designer with high street, is a never-ending daily challenge. Don't just stick to one trend, be a little brave and try mixing elements of each. You will be surprised by how many individual looks you can create. Most importantly, have fun with your fashion.

The Utility trend

has re-emerged as major news this season. In particular, the superfunctional utility jacket, which is a streetwalker must-have for this month (the darker the better). Its versatility can be easily teamed with other trends or your existing wardrobe. Only buying must-have's, fashion staples or accent pieces will ensure you don't go utility OTT. Try teaming up with this season's prettiest girlie pieces, florals, prints styled up with a little hard edge for maximum impact.

SHOPSHOP SHOPSHOP OUTSIDE THE SQUARE

mall runs always the same? hitting the same five stores while routinely avoiding another five that didn't seem like YOUR thing? You know THE local chain stores INSIDE AND OUT, but let's face it‌ so does everybody else. TIME TO mix it up, look outside the department mean't for you AND NAB YOURSELF a UNIQUE bUY.

GENDER BENDING Efficient and well-practised shoppers like our good selves have the layout of our fave department stores memorised, right? Menswear on the right, womenswear on the left. But sometimes mixing things up is as easy as looking outside the department mean't for you. Instead of women's denim, why not cross over to men's? We are seeing a massive upswing in girls shopping the boys' section. The boyfriend trend has never been bigger, fashion forward customers are getting well into the unisex denim trend, opting for loose fitting boys' pieces. And while this look is not for everyone, many brands are now offering the boyfriend fit within their own collections. However, from us to you, there's no better boyfriend jeans than an actual pair of men's jeans. They offer a different look to your denim wardrobe, great for more casual days or dressed up with a heel for a more fashionable look. Take it from us, your boyfriend will think it's super sexy if you wear his jeans with some hot heels. Ggrrrrrrrrr! ALSO TRY men's sweaters that you can style as dresses - and they are ridiculously comfortable. Men's basic slim fit tees and tanks in colours like, cool grey, black and white are perfect for layering. Or try cutting your boyfriend's jeans off to the knee, rolling them twice and wearing them either with tights on a cool day, or bare for perfect summer cut-offs. But don't stop there. For the more daring metro sexual men out there who don't mind pushing the boundaries, take a trip into the womenswear section or your girlfriends closet. The girlfriend trend, while not as popular (as the boyfriend) is gathering momentum. Perhaps the most understated follower of the girlfriend trend is David Beckham. For years now we have seen him and his wife following a very his and hers unisex way of dressing. Tip: leave the 'mennings' on the shelf!

COUNTRY LOVE We're diehard urbanites and there's not a lot of country in our collective closets. We are city shoppers, preferring to shop either while on holiday, while visiting the bigger cities, or online. But lately, we're thinking more about the country and the idea that rural shopping may be worth checking out. There's a lot of cool, edgy people returning to the country, and bringing the brands they love with them. It's more relaxed than in the city, with pieces you can't necessarily find in city stores. Hunting for them can be so much more fun. The retail experience has to be more friendly and more relaxed in terms of price point. So while city buyers might be going nuts, you'll be choosing more accessible items that you're going to wear a hundred times and still love. So plan a day trip and show some country love! The challenge of shopping at the same stores and departments as everyone else is to come out with a new inspiring look. We are having to work harder in order to stand out from the pack, while staying within budget.

INSIDE/OUT We've come a long way since Madonna made headlines for wearing her bra as outerwear. And anyway, the underwear as outerwear trend isn't so controversial anymore. However, there is still something a little daring about revealing what is ordinarily hidden. There's nothing like great lingerie to make a girl feel sexy and underwear is way too gorgeous to always be hidden. A lot of designers often create underwear to do double-duty. Selected camisoles, intimates and sleepwear can crossover and work as outerwear. It's actually good home economics, since the pieces tend to be cheaper than regular outerwear. Like any good trend, there is always a right and wrong way to work it. Think a statement bra under a sheer shirt or blazer. Try channelling cute, strong and sexy, but never cheap.

Buy now, love later.

REMOVABLE WALL STICKERS

are not a new thing by any means. I remember seeing the idea on Oprah years ago, but THEY WERE impossible to find AT THE TIME.

Blik Fly $35.00

Blik Chandelier $30.00

Fast-forward to 2010 and the wall sticker trend has developed momentum. You can now easily find creative, trendsetting designs at affordable prices. Perfect for renters who want to add some colour or a creative touch to plain walls. Simply peel, stick and remove anytime. A cool site to get inspiration and purchase creative designs from is Blik, who claim to be the world's first removable wall graphic company. Check them out / whatisblik.com

Do it yourself

wall-art renters will love TODAY'S WALLPAPERS

feature new textures, modern colours and designer patterns. Wallpaper has become a budget friendly way to inject instant chic into any room. Even renters' needs are being considered when creating the new wave of wallpapers. They are now easier to clean and maintain, semi-easy to apply (wallpaper and wallpaper kits are available from leading home improvement stores) and in most cases removable when needed. Wallpaper does need a little patience to apply, so try focusing on one high impact feature wall rather than the entire room. Be a little daring in your choices. We suggest trying a wallpaper with a hint of metallic, bold black and white or a nature inspired print for ultimate cool. Let us know how it goes!

REBEL REBEL JAMES DEAN

A self confessed man of few words, style icon and brooding actor. His rebellious look and taste for fast cars marked a definite departure from the preppy look of that time. It's hard to imagine he only lived 24 years, his legacy far outlives his short time on earth for one simple reason - he embodied the essence of cool. This season we are seeing a modern take on James Dean's rough and rebellious style. Balmain's latest S/S 2010 mens collection was a standout. But for those of you who don't have the budget for Balmain coolness, try some of streetwalker's style picks instead.

DIESEL MEN S/S 2010 Diesel has gone from strength to strength over the years. And after a collaboration with Fiat on one seriously cool car (not much bigger than a go-kart), it seems that nothing is beyond their reach. Yes, Diesel is doing everything right to break away from the pack. Their advertising is quirky, fun and well branded, a fast loading website with face biting typography. It's safe to assume we've become a fan.

Diesel describe their latest collection's inspiration as "clashing elements of fire, water and air, the untamable and passionate spirit of Diesel fire fighters". We see, brooding masculine designs with modern lines, that are totally wearable. Check out their latest collection online / diesel.com

The internet hides the most fascinating and un-fascinating, useful and useless, stupendous and utterly stupid things. Spend just one day scouting and it's like discovering a whole new world. Like someone turned on the light. But as quickly as you discover new things, you forget them, and by now you've bookmarked so many sites that it's become a big black hole. Deciphering them is another job. This section is dedicated to 'scouting' for sites we think may make your life a little easier, or are just plain cool. No more bookmarking, check us online to contribute, or for more.

Brazil RANKS 5th highest twitter users despite not being English speaking

Stressful economic times haVE called for innovative approaches when it comes to job searching. And with the unemployment rate so high, how do we find career opportunities fast? One option is Twitter. Worthwhile or not? we are still on the fence. However, after doing our research, we found that many ordinary peOPLE landed their extraordinary dream job, in just 140 characters!

4% News 4% Spam 6% Self Promotion 9% Pass Along Value 41% Pointless Babble 38% Conversational

The popularity of Twitter and all things to do with social media has created a new wave of opportunity for jobseekers. And with millions of people using, talking and living Twitter, it was only a matter of time before this medium finally became useful and lucrative. (Twitter has been active for 4 years).

65% of all users are under 25 women users outnumber men CELEBRITY TWITTER BLUNDERS

BOW WOW > Gets busted after tweeting how tipsy he was while driving. > Gave his mum an ultimatum, either him or her Twitter account. His account has since been wiped clean, you do the math. MICHAEL LOHAN > Sent tweets to Lily Allen regarding her drinking habits. > pleaded via tweets with his daughter Lindsay Lohan to go to rehab.

A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT NOT TO DO... ERYKAH BADU TWEETED DURING LABOUR

So now that we have established it is possible to tweet yourself that dream job‌. How do you go about getting it??

OPTION 1: DIY Yes, do it yourself, go it alone! Grit your teeth and attack it like a Twitter bird on a red bull! Research, research, research and put in the hard work and dedication to land your dream job. Start following high profile people in the industry you want to be in (Twitter stalking only). Put yourself at the forefront of any job postings. And make sure you have the required skill sets to successfully hold down your twitter-esque dream job. I guess what we are saying, is be realistic. If your dream job requires you to do more study, then embrace it and go for gold.

Be prepared

When that perfect job post does finally arise, don't find yourself unprepared. Be ahead of the pack; show your enthusiasm and motivation by having your CV and/or other documentation (depending on what industry you want to be in) ready to go and grab that opportunity. They don't come around that often. Don't be afraid to get a little creative with your approach. Employers see CV after CV. Why should they hire you? What makes you different? You can successfully add your own spin on things without compromising on professionalism. Remember that nothing should be last minute; it always shows if it is.

GET VISIBLE

In some industries it pays to get yourself out there. What do we mean by that you ask? Networking has evolved rapidly over the years, from liquid lunches with clients in the past, to rubbing shoulders after work. We're now seeing the emergence of a new wave, more and more business contacts are being made via virtual networks. In some industries, i.e. design, fashion, software, web development etc, it pays to be part of the virtual networking world as it gives you visibility. Start participating in conversations of interest and following those with similar backgrounds to yourself. If you want to break into the fashion industry, start a blog. Recruiters will often google you, and if you don't come up, you're actually invisible.

EMPLOYER-FRIENDLY TWITTER PAGES

Get the most out of your Twitter page. Use it as a platform to the world. Put your job pitch in your Twitter bio (160 characters). There is a lot you can do to promote yourself. Use the background to its fullest. And tweet, tweet, tweet about your job search. Include a link to your perfectly polished and up-to-date CV or personal site. Establish yourself as an expert in your field, but never, never mis-represent yourself. It will only come back to haunt you later. Shockingly, approx. half of recruiters use social networking sites to screen potential candidates. Yep, who would have thought? And of those surveyed, approx. one-third found things that stopped them from hiring someone. The most common reasons: inappropriate photos, followed by inappropriate content and, references to drinking or drug related activity. It’s also OK to say you're eating lunch with friends because it’s who you are, but if you like to post endless party pictures you could be making a mistake. On the flip side, a clever tweet could also win you points.

Tweetdeck.com and TwitJobSearch.com are two such recruiters. They have teamed up to create jobdeck, making it even easier to search for jobs. They work not only with Twitter, but Facebook and LinkedIn as well. Essentially what they do is scour through Twitter, indexing tweets that are jobs, and ditching the rest. So they can sift through the hype and, provide jobseekers with meaningful and relevant job opportunities. It also has the added benefit of being able to be viewed and used on your iPhone at any time. Tweetmyjobs.com is new to the group. It aims to bring recruiters, hiring managers and job seekers together on Twitter. You can use your Twitter account to subscribe to TweetmyJobs. It channels by the city and job type you want to follow, then you begin receiving job notifications on your mobile phone. If you don't have a mobile phone, you can still view the listings online. The ability to receive notifications of new jobs immediately via your mobile phone (any mobile phone, not just an iPhone) is a huge plus. It sets this site apart from others.

TWITTER ADVANTAGES

Twitter has the advantage of real-time communication (potentially) and the opportunity for a potential hiring manager to view not only your work if available, but also your persona and how you interact with others. It gives you the advantage of being able to connect with Managers and other influential people that you would normally not be able to access. You can also build a rapport and establish some credibility with them before approaching the subject of possible employment. Another advantage to looking for jobs on Twitter is that it shows potential employers that your finger is already on the pulse, that you are evolving with technology and social media and you know how it can work for you in the real world. It's Easy, it's free and it's fun

OPTION 2: HEADHUNTERS It's not always about who you're looking for; some people on Twitter are actually looking for YOU! There are many job recruiters (headhunters) who now use Twitter to look for potential candidates. But before contacting a recruiter via Twitter, check out their credibility.

If you are already using Twitter or considering using Twitter and looking for a job, using sites like these should be a no brainer!

GET OUTA HERE WHEN THE SUNS OUT Let the legs walk

With our busy lifestyles and easy access to transportation, we often forget to walk. This summer, take the opportunity to stretch those legs. Enjoy the sunshine and remember to take deep breathes, fill those lungs with fresh air. You will feel incredible afterwards. There are many trails in and around the area, so check out the streetwalker website for more information.

We can't help but notice the number of people out running these days. Is it just us, or was it always this way? Has running become on-trend again? It made us wonder and sparked some questions like: What can we expect from running? Does it really do all the things we imagine? Or are the people we see out running with perfect pins, just genetically blessed? I personally have been running on and off for the past 6 months and I can honestly admit to knowing next to nothing about the overall effects of running. It is only now that I am noticing any difference in my legs. It may be just me but they do appear more toned, defined and tight. So while I know the scenery outside is a lot better than a stuffy gym, I can't help but ask the question; are all the aching muscles I suffer from running really paying off?

THE RUNNING SCOOP

While there are things to be mindful of, ie. injury, which can be avoided by stretching properly, building up your intensity over time and wearing appropriate running shoes (very important), running indeed seems to be on the up and up. It is one of the easiest activities that a healthy adult can partake in and is pretty much free. Burning some serious fat (whoop whoop) and with many more benefits such as: posture / improved concentration and stress levels / physique toning and tightening / lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels / sleep filled nights. Running is also said to be the ultimate mood enhancer. Hello inspiration!

TREND WATCH One trend prediction for this coming year is the increased use of fitness training, online tracking, scheduling and monitoring tools. Gadgets such as: iPhone's, mobile and web apps, or social media support like Twitter. Of-course the best kind of fitness trend is the one you make time for and enjoy. Here are some exercise trends we enjoyed >>>

So now that I have been running for a while, know it's good for me and am starting to see the results, I am hooked. But I want to push myself more, get more results, more benefits. I've got one word for you: intervals. Interval training

was something I learned from my personal trainer way back when. His interval training methods were mostly gruelling and torturous, but for that whole hour, I never once thought about work, stress or even my own name for that matter! It felt good to let go of the outside world. I never thought of applying this methodology to running before. Interval training is said to shed more kilos than classic running. Try alternating continuously between going hard then easing up. Make the intervals longer as you gain strength. If your stamina is not quite up to it, try intervals with the walk/run methodology instead. For those who struggle with motivation, try joining a running group to kick start your new-found health habit.

ROPES GONE WILD

EXERGAMING

Voted best new cardio tool by Mens Health Magazine. Founded by trainer Anthony Diluglio, RGW uses floor harnessed ropes and a series of choreographed arm movements to deliver a high intensity, no impact core workout. Simply grip the rope with both hands and you're ready to go. If you haven't already spotted ropes in your gym, you soon will.

More and more people are opting to exercise in the privacy of their own homes. And with fun new programs released daily who can blame them! Wii Fit and EA Sports Active have both introduced new upgrades, which means no more remotes or controllers. They use a camera to track your movements and display them onscreen with feedback.
