Let’s talk Fashion in France 

Jeans. Everyone needs a pair (or five). French designer Sezane is on everyone’s radar this Summer, with the release of her jean – a hybrid vintage denim in a modern fit. Perfect for those who want a pair of jeans, but are looking for style that refines the silhouette, highlights the assets and eliminates all small defects.

 

The Grapes of Australia 

In Winter, a glass of red wine can be the perfect compliment to any meal. Now we can enjoy a red in Summer too, with the increase this year in Sparkling Red Wine production (and consumption). The Taltarni Tache is one not to miss with a light summer meal. If visiting Victoria, Australia, plan a day trip to visit Taltarni – you won’t be disappointed by the quality, diversity and innovation of this great Australian wine brand.

 

Canadian Cosmetics with Chinese influence 

It’s no secret Tremella Mushroom is a very popular medicinal mushroom not only used for Chinese cuisine but also used as a cough and lung treatment in traditional Chinese medicine.

But in fact, since ancient times, women have used Tremella Mushroom more and more to maintain a beauty regime. It is said that Yang Guifei (considered to be the most beautiful woman in Chinese history) was enthusiastic about tremella medicinal mushroom for her facial and body maintenance.

And now, you can get a break through moisturiser that combines benefits of Tremella Mushroom and Hyaluronic Acid. Nacelle Natural has released flexible hydration in this miracle product launched early 2017.

The latest Maternity Gadget from the USA 

For those on travels for their Baby Moon, soon expecting or with new borns, Nabi Aristotle voice assistant is a must have baby monitor.

This Amazon Alexa voice-activated smart assistant answers your questions, and maybe your kids’ questions too.

It orders more diapers when you run out, and soothes babies back to sleep automatically. A new parent’s dream gadget.

 

Amazing Art in Rewanda 

An up and coming artist of Rewanda, Bonfils Ngabonziza communicates messages of peace, love and unity that would inspire people.

His art is most often connected to the social sphere, and promoting human rights for all. Ngabonziza is now a member of Ivuka Arts art studio located in Kigali. If you’re into art, pop by and pick up a piece to support an up and coming artist that’s making a difference and contributing to society.

Your Next April Fools Prank Idea

Funny dog

April Fool’s day is traditionally a day for high jinks and jokes from popular culture icons to your next door neighbour. chozun loves celebrating the world and all its wonders so we’re taking a look at April Fool’s traditions from around the world to help you get some ideas for pranking on the day.

Scotland

The Scots love a prank so much, they have extended it to two days, April 1 was traditionally Hunt the Gowk day, although the name is fading out. Gowk means cuckoo, and sending a friend on a fool’s errand is how they traditionally start the prank and it passes along a chain of calamitous events. The second day is known as Taily Day, which is focused on bum jokes and is said to be where ‘kick me’ originated.

Japan

In Japanese, April Fools’s Day is called 4月馬鹿 (Shigatsu Baka or, literally, April Fool) or エイプリルフール (Eipuriru Fuuru or April Fool), although not necessarily and ancient tradition in Japan – in more recent times many brands take the opportunity to come up with funny and innovative new “products” they “release” on April Fools Day – like Volvo who came up with human airbags for people who are always looking at their phones when walking.
