There are some folks out there who seem to be very dialed in to time. It may be something innate, since humanity has been focused on the passage of time since the first time they noticed that the sun was setting and rising, or it could be a byproduct of one’s occupation in which marking the time is a requirement – couriers, for instance. Today’s non-stop business world relies on squeezing every last gram of productivity and efficiency out of every minute.

Our Inner Clock

Work-related time management skills, however, do not explain the manner in which some people can wake up every morning without an alarm clock (the secret to that is actually to drink a large glass of water right before you go to bed). Most of us rely on our alarm clocks to get us out of bed early in the morning. Alarm clocks have gone through an interesting evolution, going from fire-station style bells to baseball-clocks that you shut off by throwing them against the wall.

Fashion or Function?

The numbers on the alarm clock itself, though, are almost a formality. The purpose of the device that sits next to your head while you sleep isn’t really to keep you informed of the time – it’s just there to wake you up. Full-size neon clocks which stand freely or hang on the wall are similarly becoming a matter of taste more than necessity. The time can be found on most people’s cell phones or computers, or is on display on their car stereo.

So, you may ask, does your home need a clock? Clocks as fashion statements add a touch of beauty, whether one considers it to be “Old World” or not, to anyone’s home. Modern decorative wall clocks are more beautiful than ever, with ornate hands and framing. Improvements in digital printing technology have afforded manufacturers inexpensive ways to produce creative clocks that are as appealing as they are useful – whichever you please.

What is the most predictable question asked on the red carpet…? “And who are you wearing?” Not what are you wearing, but who.

Your Necklace Is By Whom?

When it comes to designer clothing and celebrity style, many of us recognize the clothing designers’ names, such as David Lerner. And then there are the jewelers. Much of the jewelry that is worn by the star studded attendees of awards shows such as the Academy Awards are actually borrowed. The jeweler hopes that their celebrity will be stopped on the red carpet and they will have a chance to show off their wares. Don’t be surprised if you don’t recognize the names.

Emeralds and Diamonds And Gems… Oh my!

Can you afford the jewelry of the stars? Heck the stars themselves can’t afford it! That’s why it’s on loan. Celine Dion, Annette Bening, Reese Witherspoon and Amy Adams all gravitate toward diamonds. Colors, diamonds and platinum have been seen on Mickey Rourke, Phoebe Cates, Heidi Klum and Angelina Jolie. When it comes to other accessories, let’s say shoes, Prada and (Sex and the City Carrie Bradshaw’s favorite) Manolo Blahnik rule.
Once these works of art are seen on the red carpet however, it’s almost guaranteed that knockoffs will be available to the general public soon after.
