Holiday Vacation Must Have – Melissa Shoes

Everyone is wrapping their holiday gifts right now. I know this is the gifts season, but if you have other plans than going back home for Christmas with family, such as… A Getaway Vacation! Oh yeah, that is the best. I have many friends who choose to celebrate the holiday with parents at Thanksgiving, and go to have a nice vacation in this longer holiday. Why not? You deserve a completely relaxing getaway a full year’s work! One year is a long time, we should totally cherish this wonderful opportunity to enjoy the Summer in the Winter.

Dress nice, please!

Not only for beautiful beach photos, but also for a beautiful yourself.

I will recommend you to carry Melissa Shoes with you. For a colorful, joyful and stylish vacation you are expecting for a year. First, let’s see some beach styles.

One for you, one for him.

Nothing is more than sweet to wear the same style with your lover. Getting a pair of Melissa for yourself and for him in the same style but different colors!

Melissa Papete + Rider


Two classics in one. In Papete + Rider Melissa Shoes brings a symbol of comfort and attitude to life in plastic. The pattern on the insole is an exclusive combination of both brands’ logos that translates the essence of their collab. Velcro closure means easy on and easy off, whether you’re braving the city streets or kicking back at the beach.

This style is one of my favorites. I have the clear one for myself. You can wear nice-designed socks with this cute shoes. But of course you can also just wear with bear feet on the beach!

Melissa Possession


It’s Melissa’s legit jelly shoe, originally a hit in the 90s and now back with details in the sole and an extra comfy insole. Colors are transparent and sizing ranges up to 43/44, so everyone can share in the nostalgia.

Simple but cute, then I will recommend this sandal. It is very very comfortable with a simple look, but it is the simple design makes it can match all the types of clothes, no matter shorts or dresses.

Melissa Mar Sandal

Classic, basic, and super comfortable. Mar was a success in platform, heel, and wedge versions and this season it’s available as a flat. Its minimalist design stands out in lavender and bicolor versions.

Girls always have another pair of shoes in their luggages, which are definitely high heels. Melissa Shoes also has comfy high heels for you, that you can be beauty-beauty on your high heels to enjoy the Margarita nightlife at beach bars!

This season, Melissa has the newest styles from their Winter 18 “Open Vibes” collection – introducing the Melissa “Shift” – a bold new square -toed, block heel in an array of retro colors. The shoes are lined with padded insoles, and together with the square toe/block heel combo, these are crazy comfortable!

Melissa Shift


The perfect heel – tall, closed, and a single piece. With its square toe, Shift has foam padding for extra comfort all day, or maybe all night, long.

All the color choices are not difficult for matching. This time, I chose Orange! No worry, Orange can be a nice color for all your cute clothes in this design. It is a color can bring you happiness and a lovely mood! Sunshine is always around you.

As always, all Melissa shoes and accessories are sustainably made using recycled and recyclable plastic – and therefore they’re always 100% vegan and waterproof! This season also features new designer collabs from Marine Serre, Comme des Garçons, the Campana Brothers, Disney, Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu – and more!

Gift For Him – World’s Bestselling Smart Wallet – Ekster

For the last minute gift hunting, I believe you still struggle with the gifts for him. So do I. But now, I have a wonderful gift idea for you to consider. As you know, every man loves technology, they love studying new things, and love using smart products. We have so many smart products already been very popular on market such as smart toothbrush, smart earphones… This time, let us talk something different – A smart wallet.

After raising over $1,000,000 in their previous crowd-funding campaign, Ekster®, the world’s largest smart wallet brand, has launched their third-generation product line. This time they have engineered both the slimmest- and the first voice-activated smart wallet to date.

Owners can now ring their wallet, find it on a map or even make use of the widespread Chipolo® community to help locate their missing belongings. Battery issues are no longer an issue due to Ekster’s patented solar-powered tracking solution, which on a full charge can last up to 2 whole months. These RFID-blocking wallets are held together by handcrafted premium leather for a luxury look and feel and provide instant card access at the click of a button.

The First Voice-activated Smart Wallet

Ekster’s products are now compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. This means you can now locate your wallet or phone using your smart speaker or even just use voice command on your phone using either of the two apps. Your assistant can make your wallet ring, or it can tell you where it was last seen on a map. All you need to do is install the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa app and follow the simple steps to enable Chipolo for them. 

The First Solar-Charged Smart Wallet

“This is the first solar-charged smart wallet on the market, which means you won’t ever have to charge or replace your tracker batteries” said Richard Canneman, Co-founder. Their patented solar-charging solution does not require direct sunlight to charge and only requires three hours of charge time to last two months with full worldwide tracking functionality. Ekster’s solar technology is now even being implemented by major global shipping companies like Fedex to track their containers.

Partnered with Chipolo®

Chipolo is known for creating the world’s slimmest and loudest tracking devices. This partnership has allowed Ekster® to trim the thickness of their trackers in half (0.09”) as well as make them sound twice as loud. The upgraded Bluetooth 4.2 provides a more stable connection and doubles the connectivity range. Each tracker has a unique QR code that links it to your smartphone like a fingerprint. If your wallet is lost and someone finds it, by scanning this QR code a message will be sent to you, immediately letting you know where the wallet is. Chipolo’s worldwide crowd GPS tracker network spans across the globe to help you find your wallet even when it’s out of Bluetooth range. When any user is within range of your lost item, you receive a GPS update of its location. A fun new feature that was added is the ability to use your tracker as a selfie remote.

Faster Card Access  

Ekster’s new smart wallets hold at least 12 cards but users can enjoy instant access for up to six cards with the click of a button using Ekster’s new and improved card access mechanism. It’s simple – click the trigger, and the cards are immediately ejected without having to open the Ekster Wallet. With their secret inner coating and mechanism redesign, your cards now eject further for easier access.

RFID Blocking

Credit and debit cards issued within the past decade have RFID and NFC technology embedded in them. Cards with this technology can be activated and duplicated from a distance, causing security issues for important data like banking information. Traditional wallets are no longer safe to use – and the Ekster Wallet blocks out all signals with its aluminum cardholder, keeping users fully protected against any data theft.


The Parliament is a leather bi-fold smart wallet for those that want maximum storage and minimum bulk. 

  • Quick card access mechanism
  • Worldwide traceability
  • Solar-powered tracker card
  • RFID blocking technology
  • Premium European leather

Give Warmth and Give Back with Ecuadane!

There’s a certain warmth about the holidays … not the fireplace, but the feeling in our hearts, especially when you give a gift that’s meaningful and helps others.

Everything about Ecuadane brand fits that bill. Their beautiful handcrafted goods are one-of-a-kind special gifts in and of themselves, but they also make the world a better place by giving back. From their signature alpaca-blend blankets to their scarves and Ponchos.

The three young sisters who founded this conscious brand search for unique, quality treasures that celebrate native cultures and traditions. This company is truly capturing the spirit of the holidays by giving back to the Ecuadorian community they work with. Ecuadane is donating 50% of their sales from their website to build homes for five families in Ecuador, where a majority of Ecuadane‘s products are crafted.

This holiday give the gift of Ecuadane and feel the warmth of doing something special for those you love while helping others!

Here are Top Holiday Pics from Ecuadane:

Christmas Blankets – Soft, warm and beautiful, these cozy blankets feature a beautiful holiday scene. They make you long for cold weather!

Ponchos – Wrap up your shopping with these gorgeous ponchos in teal, oatmeal, steel, lime and amber.

Scarves – The Colibri infinity scarf is made of a luxe soft knit featuring an elegant contrasting print which gives any outfit a finishing touch. It’s named after Ecuador’s beautiful hummingbirds.


The name Ecuadane is a combination of Ecuador and Denmark. The 3 young founders chose it to honor the countries where their parents were born. The Lund sisters love being together, discover cultures, traditions and wonders of the world. They started Ecuadane to be able to introduce others to the hidden treasures of little-known places. Ecuadane gives a substantial portion of its proceeds to charities.


People meet and sweet music ensues, or so the saying goes. In our case, it became more than that. After visiting the village of Otavalo in Ecuador where our three daughters and we were spellbound by the delectable textiles made by the local Otavaleños we decided to found our company Ecuadane. The name symbolizes our Ecuadorian (Catalina) and Danish (Nicolai) backgrounds.

The desire to share the unique, hand-weaved products with the rest of the world was great, but we also saw it as an interesting opportunity to combine the traditional South American design with the simple Nordic style. It was also crucial that all production should have the greatest respect for the environment and that all textiles should consist mainly of recycled textile fibres.

A dream has been realized and today Ecuadane can offer the quality-minded and environmentally conscious consumer a range of sustainable, but also delectable and soft blankets and ponchos – and we plan to add more products. Today, Ecuadane is a family-run business with our three daughters at the helm. We are grateful for the chance to share the products of the Otavaleños with the rest of the world, which is why we have decided to give back. Therefore, we are donating 5-10% of our profits to Ecuador and various humanitarian efforts such as children’s hospitals, schools etc.

Popular Color Ideas For Bridesmaid Dresses

Let’s all take a moment to be thankful for how far bridesmaids’ dresses have come.
From taffeta poofs in universally unflattering shades to modern, flattering fits with an
absolute smorgasbord of colors; the world of bridesmaids’ dresses has come far.
JJ’s House designer Jessica credits this with changing views in the wedding industry.
“It used to be that bridesmaids all had to look a certain way, wear a certain color, and
not detract from the bride, but now plenty of brides see the benefit in letting their
friends wear different shades in the same color family that flatter their skin, and wear
cuts that make them look and feel their best,” she says.
But plenty of brides still struggle with choosing what color they should use for
bridesmaid dresses.

To help you decide, here are five colors that JJ’s House designer Jessica recommends and why:

1. Coral
This fun, saturated color is perfect for summer weddings or destination weddings. It complements tanned skin beautifully and does a great job of making that white bridal dress pop. Turquoise jewelry is the perfect addition for coral dresses and adds a fun Southwestern vibe to the wedding. Another thing we love about coral dresses is that the color is so fun and easy to wear, that if you choose your dress style carefully, your
bridesmaid may even wear those dresses again.

2. Blush
Blush is a sweet, soft color that is perfect for any season. It works in almost any venue, from formal ballrooms to outdoor weddings, and complements a wide range of skin tones. It’s gently feminine and works well with almost any other shade that might be in your wedding. The only downside of blush is that it may not work for very pale skin tones, since it may wash them out.

3. Navy
Navy is such an easy color that it’s even considered a neutral. The deep, rich tones of navy is a gorgeous color for any fall or winter wedding. It’s an excellent backdrop for flowers and accessories and looks absolutely amazing in an outdoor setting with the turning leaves behind them. This is why we absolutely love navy dresses for outdoor fall weddings. Pair it with plaid wraps and your wedding will have a cozy feel in pictures.

4. Gray
Gray is becoming an increasingly popular color to see at weddings. Not only are we
seeing different shades of gray in wedding dresses, but it’s now very fashionable to have
gray bridesmaids’ dresses. Gray can be a perfect color for any season and works with almost any color combo. We love using gray in modern weddings that are using all white flowers since it can give the wedding party an almost ethereal feel.

5. Mint sherbet
The subtle, pastel green of mint sherbet dresses is so pretty we could almost eat it up!
This color became hugely popular a few years back and was in everything from shoes to
nail polish, but it’s hung on in the wedding industry.
Mint sherbet is a perfect color for a spring wedding since it reminds us of the tender
unfolding of new growth.
