Health And Fashion - What is Fashion
Fashion is constantly evolving and you should always be aware of the latest trends. Dressing in a way that makes you feel good about yourself is an important fashion tip. You should never be afraid of trying on new styles and colors - you don't need to worry if you don't look good, just make sure that you choose clothes that fit you well. For instance, if you wear a sleeveless fur vest in the winter, you can wear it as a top during the day and a skirt with a floor-length skirt in the summer.

CARL F. BUCHERER MANERO FLYBACK SIGNATURE
I am proud to be from Lancashire, a region where it frequently rains and the cuisine is simple but hearty. It may not be glamorous, but it is home and there is nowhere else I would prefer to be. However, there is another place that is also very close to my heart. In my professional role, I have visited Switzerland numerous times. At one stage, I even contemplated purchasing a modest home in this land of cheese, chocolate and, of course, watches.
