Sugarpova / Sexy Gummies

 We just came across with this super creative project titled "Sugarpova", and we are totally loving it.

Sugarpova brings a new level of sophistication and quality to the gummy candy market, without losing sight of the playful nature of the product.

 For this project the brand had to communicate that they were fashionable, fresh and fun. And here you have it, a fun chick like Maria Sharapova as their model and a newly designed package and gummy forms. They are super cute! The designs were altered to convey the many attitudes of the brand, chic, cheeky, silly, sassy, flirty, quirky, spooky, and smitten - corresponding with different shapes and flavors of the gummies. 

The whole idea of the project was to prove that gummies are not just for kids but for grownups as well. We love this concept, and yes we would buy them, there is no doubt. What type of gummies would you buy? flirty? cheeky? 

MEN: Benjo's / Colored Pennies

Benjo's is a unique accessories brand for inimitable people. The brand was founded in 2011 by lifestyle curator and real estate developer Ben Hertz. Benjo's offers accessible, premium means of expressing distinct style. 
Benjo's was born out of necessity, when Hertz was in Rome and came across with a pair of red laces. Everywhere he went, people asked him where he got his shoes, and when it came time to replace them, Hertz found it impossible to find red laces anywhere and so Benjo's was born. 
Benjo's offers fun and stylish accessories for men. Hertz says "sometimes it's tricky when you work in a conservative industry to add the necessary individuality to the day's look", but we think that Benjo's has what it takes, classic accessories with a twist. We are obsessed with their colored pennies!

2 cups of Fresh arugula
2 cups of Fresh spinach
2 cups of walnuts
1 cup of Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of butter
2 garlics

1 cup of Lemon Juice
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of pink peppercorns
2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of oregano

Cut into small pieces the mushrooms. In a skillet over medium heat add the tablespoon of butter with whole garlic cloves, peeled. Then place the chopped Mushrooms in the skillet. When mushrooms start to get soft add the cup of wine along with the parsley, salt and pepper.
Take them out of the fire and let them cool down.
In a bowl mix the cooled mushrooms with the spinach, the chopped arugula, and the walnuts. (TIP: don't use a knife to cut any of the ingredients, this will ruin the flavors, instead use your hands or a plastic knife)
Fill the jars with the mushroom, spinach, arugula and nuts and add the parmesan cheese on the top, you can use the one you have  at home or u can buy it. 

For the sauce:
In a bowl place the lemon juice first, then olive oil, beer, apple cider vinegar, oregano, pepper and salt, you should mix all the ingredients in that order so you have all the flavors mixed perfectly. Put the sauce beside the jars so everyone can put in the amount they want.

Serve this with Tomato Bread

Matte lipstick is the newest lip trend for fall and winter. The trend was seen in fall 2012 runways on designers such as: YSL, Michael Kors, Zac Pose, Givenchy, Rufflan, and House of Holland.
