Ladies... if you buy a new shirt, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember to remove the tag before wearing.
Since 2006, UK based company- A Suit That Fits, has offered bespoke tailored looks designed by you, specifically cut for you, and all at a price you can't beat. And although their creations are currently only available across the pond, their new concept is worth waiting for...
Load Your Lining is a unique design idea that lets you add a bit of character to a rather stuffy 'let's get down to business' style. All you have to do is go online, pick out your preferred cut (one, two or three button), and perfect it with either your own kick ass image, or select from their own curated design gallery. The best part- while you may look strikingly serious on the outside, only you will know what's really hiding under the hood.
Get into the Halloween spirit with the black magic of BLAVOD Pure Black Vodka. By adding catechu, an herb found in southern Asia and central and east Africa, the traditionally clear color of vodka is transformed without any effect on its flavor. And if you add a few touches, it makes for some pretty spookin' cool cocktails:
1/4 cup ice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1 1/2 ounces black vodka
1 black licorice twist, for serving
Place ice in a tall glass. Pour juice into glass. Pour vodka over the back of a cocktail spoon into glass so it sits on top of juice and creates a layer of black. Slice 1/4 inch off each end of licorice, and use as a straw. Serve immediately.
Berry Scary Martini
1 cup ice
1 ounce black vodka
2 ounces cherry juice
Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish
Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.
