Nothing beats a great t-shirt collection on a hot summer day. Just throw on a cool tee, cargo shorts and a pair of cool sneakers for rocking the back to the 90s look. To complete the ultimate throwback look, you will need the best throwback t-shirts in your collection. This means moving away from the pastel shades and Polo necks you have been clinging to for the last decade. From the washed-down enigma to the smartest graphics, everything about these tees can make you super cool on the hottest days of summer.

Star Wars

This year is all about Solo and the controversies that have kept Star Wars alive among the ardent fans. There is no better way to keep the force with you than to opt for a Star Wars-inspired retro tee this summer. Opt for a cool color like lemon yellow, coral, salmon or aqua blue to maximize the impact of the noticeable graphics.

Avenger’s Infinity War

People have set world records by watching this epic movie over 44 times in the last one month. You can show your love and dedication to the Marvel franchise by choosing a niche Avenger’s t-shirt this summer. Due to the darker theme of the most recent release, it is wiser to keep the colors dark as well. While we must ask you to stay away from black, you can try navy blue, deep purple, maroon, brick red and olive green for staying awesome this summer.

Cats! Cats! And more cats!

The internet loves cats. Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook have their own army of cat lovers, who are ready to accept anyone with arms wide open as long as they have cat-themed clothes and accessories. You love the feline fatale too? Find likeminded people by posting your selfie with one of the cool cat t-shirts hot this summer. What will your follower prefer, grumpy cat or a funny cat like Garfield? Find out the latest t-shirt styles at Zaful.

90s music

A lot of music-geeks believe that 90s were the best time for rock, metal, pop, and grunge. There will be no era like the 90s as far as creativity is concerned. If you are a huge fan of the bygone decade of the music scene, you should try something other than the Yellow-Black Nirvana t-shirts kids are wearing these days. Try some Led Zep, throw on a Pink Floyd vibe or roll out with the Rolling Stones this year.

The tip to successfully pull off a graphic tee is by accessorizing it correctly. You do not want to look like a sullen teenager, especially when you are a responsible adult with a full-time job. Invest in a good pair of sneakers or slip-on sneakers. These are easy to slip into and slip out of. That makes them ideal for poolside parties and beaches. Invest in a respectable pair of cargo shorts as well. There was a time when fashionistas declared that no cargo pants could ever be respectable. Thankfully, those days are long gone, and you can step out of your home in your favorite graphic tee, cargo shorts, and sneakers, and still be the coolest guy on the block.

Easter Gifts: Just Bee’s Lilac Candle and A Toothbrush and Paste That Will Change Your Life

Published

on

Going to brunch, lunch or dinner at someone’s house, for me alway entails bringing a gift. For Easter, I have the perfect suggestion. I just tried Just Bee’s Lilac Candle and am so impressed. This candle packs a scent that just by being open, sends that timeless fragrance wafting through my apartment bringing in that essence of springtime. Hints of rose, vanilla, honey and jasmine add to the aroma so that the room smells like a country garden. Made from natural soy wax, organic coconut oil and beeswax you get up to 20 hours of clean burning with 3.5oz ($15.98), 40 hours with 7oz($21.98) and 70 hours with the 13oz ($28.98).

They also have a Pomegranate and Lemon Rind and Ginger Pamplemousse, I can’t wait to try.

With all those Easter treats, the next item on my must have list is the tooth brush and tooth paste by Mouthwatchers. Created by Doctor Plotka, this manual toothbrush offers a breakthrough in oral care. First the bristles are silver infused, which naturally eliminate 99% of bacteria, viruses and fungi within 6 hours. The bristles are also dual-layered, which means they are 10x thinner than leading brands and as thin as a human hair at the tip. They reach places other brushes miss and deep into grooves where 95% of cavities form. The best part ($9.73) for two.


This company also makes the best tooth paste. Doctor Plotka’s 100% Naturally Sourced Whitening Toothpaste is an all-in-one flouride-free formula. The tooth paste, whitens with silica and hydroxyapatite which lowers the risk of erosion and restores your teeth to their natural whiteness. It uses organic propolis, a natural honeybee product known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, reduces the risk of cavities, gum sensitivity and plaque build-up. With mineral-rich thermal spring Water, sourced from France, is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits which can soothe irritation. The organic mint gives your mouth and breath long-lasting freshness. Best yet, 100% of ingredients are sourced from natural origins. This tube is fully recyclable and made with 44% post-consumer recycled materials. I found this tooth paste the best I have ever used and am now hooked.

What’s Best for Diamond Rings – Gold or Sterling Silver?

Published

on

By

Diamond rings are the very embodiment of grace and cherished remembrance. However, selecting the most suitable metal – either gold or sterling silver – to match these precious stones may not be a walk in the park because of several variables. Each metal has its unique attributes and considerations. To settle this matter, let us talk about what gold and sterling silver offer when it comes to diamond rings for women.

The Classic Elegance of Gold

For quite some time now, gold has remained an unrivaled favorite in the world of diamond rings. Its inherent enchantment makes it a natural choice.

Durability and Patina

Gold is naturally soft but usually alloyed with metals such as copper, silver, or zinc in order to increase its resilience. This results in differing karat counts in gold jewelry, whereby 14k and 18k are commonly used for diamond rings because they offer a balance between long-lastingness and quantity of gold. With time, gold develops a rich patina, which many owners find attractive.

Versatility

Gold comes in yellow, white, and rose options, each with special appeal. Yellow gold adds warmth while providing brilliant contrast against the crisp brilliance of a diamond. On the other hand, white gold plated with rhodium improves the sparkle of diamonds, making them appear larger, whereas rose gold brings out the charm of a piece.

Price Factor

Gold has a luxury that comes with a higher price compared to sterling silver. Nevertheless, gold diamond rings can be a good investment, considering their durability, lifetime value, and inherent worth.

Sterling Silver: The Modern Muse

Despite gold’s dominance, sterling silver has trumped gold as an option for those who want understated elegance when it comes to diamond rings.

Sleek Aesthetics

The modern, sleek look of sterling silver makes it such a good match with diamonds. It glimmers beneath the shine of the diamond stones and gives them life through its bright, cool undertone. This attribute makes it perfect for people who prefer contemporary jewelry designs.

Durability

92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5% of other metals (most commonly copper) forms a very tough sterling silver alloy that can withstand everyday use. Sometimes, though, when subjected to air and moisture, sterling silver may react by changing color, but this does not mean that it cannot be cleaned or polished back into its former glory.

Affordability

For budget-conscious jewelry fans, sterling silver is a relatively low-cost alternative that lets them own beautiful diamond rings without breaking the bank.

Choosing Between Gold and Sterling Silver

The right metal for your diamond ring ultimately depends on personal preferences, budget, and how much work you are ready to put into its maintenance. For example, if you have classic taste and don’t mind splurging some money on gold, invest in gold diamond rings.

On the contrary, if you prefer fashion-forward styles or want to spend less on purchasing your engagement ring, buying sterling silver will be the right move.

The Final Take

Ultimately, the choice of metal is a function of how the ring resonates individually. More often than not, diamond rings represent love and commitment, and this has much more value. However, gold and sterling silver diamond rings would be excellent keepsakes for any jewelry box.

Considering their peculiarities and thinking about your style and financial resources will make it easier to decide which metal will make your diamond ring sparkle the most.
