Meet Lottie Moss, the little sister of none other than the style icon herself, Kate Moss. She just may be the next big thing in the fashion world. She launched her modeling career at 16 when she signed with Storm Modeling Agency. Beyond that she recently graced the cover of Vogue, is creating a buzz on Instagram and is a British tabloid favorite already. She reminds of us a young Candace Bergen. We see a bright future ahead of her. We even like the name: Lottie.
Mido is on of those illustrious Swiss watch brands for people in the know. Founded in Switzerland in 1918 by George Schaeren, Mido is today based in Le Locle in the heart of the Swiss Jura Mountains. The name Mido comes from the Spanish “Yo mido” meaning “I measure” For nearly a century, Mido has been a global benchmark in Swiss mad mechanical watches.Mido has announced a new watch specifically aimed at football fans. With the new Multifort Touchdown Special Edition, the company’s aim is to assert their dedication to football. Both football fans and enthusiasts of fine Swiss watchmaking mechanisms can appreciate it. Its sporty but made to perform.
The makers of Mido state that the Multifort Touchdown Special Edition timepiece is meant to celebrate power and precision, two essential qualities on the football field. Its robust black PVD-treated steel case shelters it from the roughest impacts. Measuring 42 mm in diameter, it houses a magnificent black dial that is decorated with vertical Geneva stripes and protected by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The orange numerals 6 and 12 recall the numbers that adorn the players’ jerseys and feature generous touches of orange Super-LumiNova® for increased legibility at night, as do the index dots and the hour and minute hands. The black and orange hands are another nod to football, and in particular to the first down marker.
The watch has two interchangeable straps to make it more adaptable for the wearer. The “Game Day” version in Horween® leather with central white lacing is inspired by the legendary football itself and borrows both its design and material. It is fitted with a pin buckle designed to evoke a goalpost. Meanwhile, the “Weekday” version in black leather with orange topstitching recalls the Mido colors, making it a timepiece with a sport-chic feel. This last strap features a black PVD-treated steel folding clasp.
At the cutting edge of innovation, the Caliber 80 gives it exceptional autonomy: up to 80 hours of power reserve. The transparent case back enables this finely decorated movement to be admired, together with its oscillating weight, which is decorated with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo.
The Multifort Touchdown Special Edition comes in a special box and is available for purchase in September for $1,150. For more information, visit us.shopmido.com.
Mido Introduces New Timepiece For Football Fans
We’ve come across 2 sexy organic products recently that claim to be aphrodisiacs. They are fragrances based on body chemistry.
First up is a product out of California called Eye of Love. To be honest this brand was a product in our gift bag to VIP at the Planet Fashion TV launch of Miami Swimwear Fashion Week this year. Their product is based on the science of pheromones. When we met the owners of the brand, we found their pitch compelling.
Human pheromones are chemicals that send subconscious scent signals to the opposite sex and can trigger very powerful sexual responses. Your body naturally emits pheromones every day. The scent signals from pheromones are picked up through an organ 3 inches inside the nose called the Vomeronasal Organ (VNO). When the nose detects the pheromone, it sends a sexual response signal to the limbic region of the brain, which controls our emotions and sexual desires.
When these sexual and romantic feelings are activated, your brain releases a chemical called phenethylamine, which in turn kicks on dopamine production. The result can be quite powerful and you do not have to smell a pheromone to be affected by it.
The owner of Eye of Love, Alberto Chowaiki, claims that people who produce higher amounts of human pheromones often have greater success attracting the opposite sex. Studies have shown that pheromones can help others to see you as more open, attractive, charismatic, and easy to talk to. In one study, ABC 20/20, twin brothers and twin sisters were used in the testing. Only one of the twins was sprayed with the actual pheromones. The results showed that the twin who had the actual pheromone was more sexually attractive than the other and was requested for more dates.
This is why EYE of LOVE Perfume and Sensual products were created with synthetic pheromones, to give people an added advantage in attracting people.
Although pheromones are odorless, EYE of LOVE has added special fragrances to enhance their effect and the outcome. The perfume and the pheromone work on two entirely different levels. The Pheromone is odorless and stimulates a chemical reaction, while the fragrance complements and enhances the particular mood. The makers of Eye of Love say that it works best when sprayed on the areas where sweat glands are, the wrists and neck. I had the pleasure of trying the product out for the last month. I’m not sure if it’s making me more attractive but the scent is delicious and so far I love it.
The second product that’s come on our radar is from Good Clean Love.
Good Clean Love is an organic intimacy product company has created a new line of aphrodisiac scents that are designed to awaken the passionate lover in each of us. Like the rest of the products that this innovative company offers, the fragrances contain no additives or fixatives. They are completely free from any harmful petrochemicals or parabens. They are made with essential oils and aphrodisiac scents that respond to the unique body chemistry of the wearer.
Most synthetic fragrances are largely produced with 95% petrochemicals including acetone, phthalates, and many endocrine disrupters. This means that when people use these synthetic fragrances, they are spraying these dangerous chemicals directly onto their skin. Good Clean Love is attempting to be a sensual, healthy alternative to synthetic fragrances.
Good Clean Love’s CEO, Wendy Strgar calls herself an expert loveologist.
In 2006, Wendy Strgar founded Good Clean Love’s first products, organic sexual lubricant with natural ingredients.
For the last twelve years, Strgar has been writing about sex and mating rituals as an integral part of building lasting relationships and sustaining health.

Organic Scents and Aphrodisiacs
Are they or aren’t they? That’s the question on everyone’s lips. No, we’re not talking about Ross and Rachel from Friends (which by the way has made a huge come back online). The latest duo getting all of our relationship radars in a tizz is none other than up-and-down daters, Rihanna and Drake.
Judging by their latest music video for Rihanna’s single “Work”, it seems that their relationship is very much on! For basically the entire video, Rihanna playfully (and very suggestively) sways and bops to the song’s Caribbean beat while Drake is all too happy to have her grinding on him. These two know how to make it “Work”.
But this public display of attraction has been a long time in the making. Their courtship began back in May 2009, when the twosome first got together at a New York bowling alley. The encounter even inspired the rapper to pen a song about it called “Fireworks”, found on his album “Thank Me Later”. When asked about their hook-up later that year, Rihanna played down the rumors in a radio interview while Drake admitted to XXL that the rumors were “semi-true”. So coy, these two…
Cut to October 2010 and the duo collaborate on the track “What’s My Name”, the music video for which shows them in romantic scenes, all coupled up. A case of art meets reality? In Drake’s opinion, most certainly. He wrote a verse for “Made Men” by Rick Ross, where he raps: “One of my baddest women ever, I call her Rihanna. But that’s cause her name is Rihanna.”
The next instalment in their maybe-coupling came in November 2011 on their smash hit single “Take Care”. The music video upped the ante from their last effort, including even more physical contact.
But it was not all smooth sailing between the two. Enter Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown. Rumors began swirling that Rihanna was back together with her ex which culminated in an alleged bust-up between Drake and the R&B crooner in a New York nightclub. On the incident, Drake commented: “At one point, the woman he loves fell into my lap.” But despite it all, Drake held no hard feelings towards his former flame, as he told Ellen DeGeneres: “Great girl, we had our moment. Always support and have love for her.”
Which leads us to 2016, when the two were spotted secretly meeting in Los Angeles. It was later revealed that the pair would be collaborating once again on the lead single for her latest album “ANTI”. And the video did not disappoint. The two are clearly still very comfortable with each other, proven as they engaged in even more PDA in a steamy live performance at the 2016 Brit Awards.
Rihanna and Drake Are Definitely Together!
