‘United Scandinavia’ by Patrick Demarchelier in Scandinavia SSAW Magazine #Gorgeous #TeamSweden #Editorial

I am very proud to say I am Swedish. My Grandmother came over from Goteborg, Sweden (pronounced yotee-boree if you can believe it) in the 1920’s and passed on her heritage and awesome cheekbones to my mother and I. So when you see a mad genius like Patrick Demarchelier do a shoot for Scandinavia SSAW Magazine with our favorite Swedish supermodel, Frida Gustavsson, and super sexy Dane, Josephine Skriver, I HAVE TO share.

Tech Toys You Need, The Pocket Monkey #Cool #FathersDay #GiftGuide #MUSTHAVE

IMG_0274

I am a total geek girl. I admit I have collected comics, own a phone, tablet and laptop, love learning back end computer stuff and write in code. It’s a dirty secret I have come to terms with. That’s why when this dropped into my inbox I became obsessed.

PocketMonkey

This little joy is the Pocket Monkey. Designed by a mechanical engineer, Nate Barr this baby has everything you need in a utility tool:

• Bottle Opener: No need to carry around a bulky, keychain bottle opener.
• Phone Kickstand: Interact with only one hand and keep your phone at a comfortable working angle.
• Flat head screwdriver: Perfect for simple projects when a standard screwdriver isn’t available.
• Micro-flathead screwdriver: Perfect for eyeglasses, watches, kids’ toys and keyless vehicle dongles.
• Two-dimensional Phillips head screwdriver: No need for cross beam with the special angled tip.
• Nested English hex wrenches with four bolt sizes: Just slide Pocket Monkey over a bolt head and slide until you find the right size. Quick and easy.
• English Ruler: What’s the difference between 3/16 and 1/4 of an inch? Find out quickly.
• Letter opener: Make quick work of your mail pile!
• Edge to open door latches: Locked your keys inside your house? If the deadbolt’s not in place, this latch slip opens locked doors without protective edging or specialty latches.
• Straight Edge: Use Pocket Monkey to help you draw a perfect straight line. Or, it can even be used a scraper.
• Orange peeler and banana nicker: Get your fruit open quickly and conveniently, without getting your fingernails messy.

YES, I have used them all. I had to TRY the product to make sure I have a reason to get excited. Once I did I got one for my dad who is a who works in Silicon Valley and my roommate ordered one. Now it’s a staple in my purse.

What makes it different from EVERY other uitli-tool? Well, the original Kickstarter.com amount was $2,000. It raised a whopping $27,550. The pocket Monkey is also lightweight and fits in your wallet or purse sans the bulk you get from so many utili-tools out there.

I am sick of something weighing two pounds in my pocket when I am working around the house, on the car, or am out and about. It’s TSA compliant so leave it in your wallet. You don’t have to worry about them stealing your precious Pocket Monkey from you.

Are you sold yet? Good. Go get yourself a Pocket Monkey here;

Best part? It costs a whole $12!!

Memorial Day Movie Goodness, ‘Wolverine’ Trailer #Yes #ComingSoon #MovieHappy

The-Wolverine-movie-poster

Because in America we don’t ‘really’ honor Memorial Day as day of the fallen (we should), I give you a movie trailer. It is about a soldier but that is where the similarity ends with the whole holiday thing.

Let’s segue way in the awesome-ness that is Wolverine.

I LOVE Hugh Jackman. Anyone who can sing, dance, act ponce-y and be buff bad ass with facial hair issues is a hell of an actor. He needs a walk of fame star, and if he has one, he needs another. Besides being a great actor he play’s Wolverine to the teeth and kick’s ass at it. Hugh Jackman is owning this movie. The story line is epic and as a lead actor he know’s what he is doing.

I am dying that they went Japanese with this and they have a hot girl samurai warrior played by Rila Fukushima.

Rila Fukushima is not only great with a sword, but is a 5’7 fashion model from Japan. She started by working with D&G in 2004 and she has been a non-stop campaign and runway girl since. Rila has worked with Ben Taylor and rock god, Lenny Kravitz, as a video girl making her talented and hot. I am glad to see her expanding her sexy, crazy skills. Score one for Japan!

Last and never least, Famke Janssen. I have seen her bottom out and have taken some paycheck movies so to see her back as Jean Grey is awesome! Something about tall Dutch hottie’s (see Yolanda RHOBH).

Famke Janssen is smart, can act and at 47 (yes 47 boys) is a hot 6 foot tall Dutch girl who can steal any man’s heart. I am eternally thankful for the director’s casting her in this as the one X-men comeback character.

Think I’ve talked this movie up enough? Want to know why? Watch….

Muppets to be Exhibited at NY’s ‘Museum of Moving Image’ #cool #Muppets #NewYork

Piggy

Oh Piggy how I wanted to be you!

Great news for Muppet’s fan’s worldwide, the Muppets are finding a permanent home in New York City. New York’s Museum of Moving Image, is getting a fat donation.
By fat I mean Piggy, Kermit, some of Sesame street and some very happy little Fraggles, who no longer need to worry about their home.

According to the lovely people at AP/Yahoo;

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Bert and Ernie of “Sesame Street” fame, the stars of “Fraggle Rock” and other puppets, costumes and items from throughout Muppet’s creator Jim Henson’s career have been donated

What is even cooler is over 400 items and 25 years worth of Muppet’s are being handed over to the museum. How epic is that?!

Unfortunately the sad part? We have to wait a year.

The exhibit is to open next year at the museum in the Long Island City neighborhood, across the East River from midtown Manhattan. The city is chipping in $2.75 million toward the $5 million cost for a project it sees as furthering its goal of persuading more tourists to venture beyond Manhattan.

I guess I know when to schedule my visit to the East Coast. See you there.

TGIF Video – Dior’s ‘Secret Garden, Versailles’ video

dior-secret-garden

There are few things in this world that have my heart. One is the house of Dior. Classy, timeless and run by Raf Simons, it is purely chic. Delicious even.

The other is my old school, goth, new wave upbringing. Namely Depeche Mode who has a soundtrack to everything in my life. Their music was timeless and full of top 40 songs I have danced to since the 80s.

What do you get when you mix awesome English band Depeche Mode with Dior?

This beautifully done campaign video. Originally released in a short version the final, long version will steal your heart. I know it did mine.
Enjoy this visual eye candy.

John Galliano Get’s the Boot From Parson’s. #Again #Burn

John Galliano just cannot get a break. Then again, why should he?

slide_199046_501966_free

In 2011 while helming the house of Dior, John Galliano went on a horrible anti-Semitic rant in France. Some poor couple was berated, he was arrested for drunken public behaviour and it cost him his job. This was an unforgivable faux pas, and frankly, pissed off a lot of fashion houses. Then he got it in his head he should sue Dior for wrongful termination making him persona fashion non grata.

Over the last two years Galliano has tried to smooth things over and get his career back on track. He has taken a temporary residency with Oscar de la Renta and HAD scored a job with Parson’ school of fashion design in New York. The key word being ‘had’.

The school, being of sound mind, and knowing their influence on youth in fashion, wanted Galliano to speak about his fashion design AND his actions in the world. Unfortunately being full of ego he still is having some ‘personal’ issues known as anti-Semitism, Galliano disagreed.

According to the Huffpost, a statement about the course by Parson’s said;

a candid discussion about the connection between his professional work and his actions in the world at large.” It said it canceled the workshop after the two sides couldn’t reach consensus on the conditions of the conversation.

A spokesman for Galliano didn’t immediately return a request for comment Wednesday.

Parson’s fired him and his fancy four day course and the rest is history.

In fashion we tolerate a large amount of crazy and terrible behavior. Sex, drugs, and runway are non-stop insanity and the people who make it happen are a bit ‘off’ as well. Being one of them I should know. We will not however tolerate racism, crimes against gays (they are our bread and butter) and religious hate.

Let’s hope Galliano learns to swallow is pride. It just cost him not only a job, but his reputation is beginning to ‘wear’ thin.

Met Gala Goes #Punk with Punk:Chaos to Couture Exhibit #RedCarpet #Best #Worst #PunkIsNotDead

Vogue had a live stream, twitter was a-tweeting and I was live tweeting my likes and dislikes of yesterdays red carpet. What? You weren’t tweeting with me? Well then go add me at @HeathyrWolfe before you start feeling guilty.

Icons of Fashion, TV and the Big Screen showed up in droves. Some fashionable, some fashionably late. Most were punk to gills as they should have been. Vivienne Westwood made a show and an amazing political plight for Bradley Manning, the soldier at the centre of the Wikileaks drama,

Vivienne Westwood at the Met Ball 21013 Madonna in Givenchy and Casadei shoes, showed some fierce punk attitude Madonna MadonnainGivenchyandCasdeishoes Surprisingly, Miley Cyrus was head to toe H-O-T, in a fishnet dress by Marc Jacobs, MileyC MileyMarcJacobs

The piece-de-resistance was Sarah Jessica Parker. She put a smile on everyone’s face with a mohawk head piece that was vintage Phillip Treacy, a Sarah Jessica Parker In Giles Deacon Dress dress and kick your ass plaid thigh-high boots.

Evan Elliot ‘Never Forever’ Collection #Menswwear #Ninja #Emerging

Being a contributor and writer in the Fashion industry has its perks. One of said perks being I can go to NYFW and witness the amazing designers debut their collections. No I’m not just trying to make you jealous (maybe a little). I’m actually talking about the FW 2013-2014 collection shown by the very talented Elliot Giffs.

Labeled ‘Never Forever’ it premiered this year NYFW in Feb for Fall/Winter 2013. I don’t know where Elliot Giffis has been hiding because his collection was amazingly unique and high fashion.
k3G_CUcnRjEeAurzFqhSpM7b61IIgmirCmMua3NUUrolead
Seeing this menswear collection was refreshing. It tickled my freak chic fashion bone by being something akin to ninja gear for a metro sexual. Although most collections that are shown at NYFW usually show a bit more of an Americanized style, his reflects more of an international quality.
Curious yet? Check out the amazing runway photos from the Elliot Evan Fall/Winter 2013 collection pour homme.
Huge thanks to Michael Shane PR for show invite and photos (Fashionable love and Champagne kisses darling!).

True Blood Season 6 Trailer. Made for #FangBangers #NSFW #Hot

True-Blood-Season-6

Let’s face it. Season 5 was a total bust. I am a long time fan of True Blood but they totally failed me in Season 5. There was not enough sex, there was not enough blood and the plot was so thin, a 1-year-old with a butter knife could have cut through it.

I guess there were a few highlights. All involving Eric half nekkid. Other than that, we learned fairies are lame, like sex and all vampires are narcissists. This could be season 2.

And then there was the Season 6 trailer…..and it made me say….

Sweet Jesus.

With a limited run of only a few episodes we have everyone naked, more blood than a 80s gore movie, tons of battling, shoot ’em up, blood lust AND…..lots of Eric’s awesome chest. Way to go Mr. Skarsgard, you’ve been hitting the gym. (Team Sweden FTW!!)

Words cannot explain the joy I got (especially below the waist) when watching this. Sex, Blood and gospel music. It’s a WIN!

(Trailer is kind of NSFW/PG-13)

Vanessa Hudgens and YLA Kill it in $$$ex, Literally. #90sthrowback #cheersquad

Vanessa-Hudgens-9 (1)

Vanessa Hudgens, ex-Disney kid, Ex of Zac Efron and Ex-High School Music twenty something girl. She’s go loads of ca$$$h, and a career that has been a really good PR stunt. She’s boho, cute and a Coachella kind of gal.

So where in the holy hell did this come from. Here we have a 90’s throwback video with a day-glo twist that hurts my ears, eyes and makes my skin crawl. I’m not sure if this is three minutes of a cheer, or a song. I think secretly Disney had something to do with this mess. And it is VERY not cute.

It seems that YLA are actually the ones who are in charge of co-cheering this song into existence and producing it. Although I give them props for using the B list tween for her fame to move up, this was pretty much a bad move. YLA needs to take their name off this hot 90s mess. This was not meant to be seen by the public girls. And our tween superstar Vanessa? Vanessa Hudgens needs to stick to tween moves with hot leading men.

Every Disney kid has to try to put out a hit single. Sorry Vanessa H. fans, this is definitely a miss.
