The idea is based on transparent heating glass technology and the idea is that the glass
heats up enough to toast the bread. Simply splendid for a OCD gal like myself. The toaster

Until the next time xoxo RG.
In 2008, De La Renta filed a lawsuit that claimed Elizabeth Arden (Loreal) was selling his fragrance products to mass market retailers (Target) (Wal-Mart) that had only been authorised for use as promotional material. Loreal claimed they were buying the products from YSL Beaute' and that any issue should be taken up with YSL Beaute'. For the last two years Loreal, YSL and De La Renta have been battling it out but somehow Oscar De La Renta manage to get his fragrance license back from YSL Beaute' as of Friday December 18, 2009.
Now he does not have to worry about his fragrance popping up in random spots like Walgreens, CVS, and Wal-Mart lol. It was a tragedy to find his fragrance merchandised in such places lol. YSL never sold any of their fragrances to Wal-Mart etc so what made them think Oscar De La Renta would permit such madness. Tragic!
While christmas shopping, I discovered a really whimsical jewelry shop at Etsy. I have always been a fan of spiders and skeletons but hesitate to actually wear them. That was until I purchased a necklace and ring from Edmdesigns. The jewelry is gothic chic very easy to wear and great conversational pieces. The jewelry above are some examples of the pieces I've purchased and have grown very attach to. At the top is the Steampunk Necklace in a silver pocket watch with a copper spider sells for $125. The bottom left is the Steampunk Cuff Bracelet sells for $155 and the bottom right is the Steampunk Ring sells for $95. The the entire collection is created with vintage brass, it will not fade or tarnish.
19-year-old model Jourdan Dunn gave birth to a boy on last Tuesday afternoon; so her son and Gisele's son were either born on the same day, or just hours apart. Dunn has been with her boyfriend for five years. The daring model even walked the runway seven months pregnant for Jean Paul Gaultier's show. Her agency hasn't said whether she'll walk the shows again in February, but a rep says, "Jourdan is really well and super happy."

The legal case between Tamara Mellon and her mother has been settled, after a legal battle that has been ongoing since 2008. The iconic shoe guru and founder of Jimmy Choo received $6 million from 70-year-old Ann Yeardye her mother, a former Chanel model, after the two camps came to a settlement last week.
The pair clashed after Tamara Mellon, who made $100 million from her footwear empire, sold the shoe label to an investment group; but an accounting error meant some shares were mistakenly transferred to a family account run by Mrs Yeardye. Yeardye allegedly refused to return them, calling the claims that a mistake had been made "erroneous'' and launching a counter complaint against her daughter for fraud and breach of contract.

The Deco-like necklaces from John Galliano Resort 2009 collection look good enough to eat, taking inspiration from childhood ‘candy necklaces’ with their mismatched diamante, glass and enamel chunks.
