Top suits under £100

By Vicki Evans

A suit can easily set you back a few hundred pounds but spending that amount for clothing that you may only wear a few times a year may not be worth it.

A suit is an investment but sometimes the mid-range market can be a more feasible option.

All these suits come under £100 and all you need is a shirt and a tie.

Debenhams (Thomas Nash) – £99 for trousers and jacket

The classic grey suit is flattering for every occasion and great for summer formal events.

Topman – £100 for trousers and jacket

Navy blue is a colour that works for most people and is easy to add a little bit of colour in to a otherwise plain suit.

Burton – £79 for trousers and jacket

A black suit is a classic that works for every occasion. All you need is a black suit and you are set for any event.

Marks and Spencers – £99

A younger take on the full black with two buttons and a straight leg makes the classic suit more modern and have a youthful feel to it.

Homepage of Sales Gossip -this greatness speaks for itself

As Millennials, people start considering more seriously how and on what should their money be spent on. Whether is better to buy cheap stuff as you go, or wait longer and bit more painfully to save up and renew the wardrobe every season when sales are on.

Well, now thanks to the amazing invention of Internet, online shopping had made things much more flexible. So people get to plan their shopping schedule without necessarily depending on the fashion world’s own agenda. Plus, without being afraid to buy something that will turn out to be very different to what you thought you bought when it arrives to your door.

‘Sales Gossip’ offers a wide variety of world-wide, high-name brands that everyone at some point had wish to had but that aren’t really affordable.

Brands and sales’ examples of what the page offers

Nothing to be ashamed for, money is hard to earn and easy to spend. But at least now everyone has got a fair chance to get what they want from brands they know they can trust and even better, show off about!

Simply search on the main page for the brands you like or according to what you are looking for, such: trainers, dresses or bags; and after choosing the brand, the next page will tell you where to find the sales, outlet or respective section with the sales they have got to offer.

Happy e-shopping!

Photo and video editing: the apps you need

By Merche Diaz

Keeping our profiles neat and sharp, and uploading stuff that looks all professional and HD is something we all want to make sure we do right, so to impress and enhance our ordinary daily lives.

Photo and video editing apps are not a secret, yet they may feel incredibly complicated for first-time users (aka: cannot be arsed to).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fear not! Suffer no longer! Behold, here are the highlighted apps that our photographer and designer, use both daily and on assignments:

Photoshop Express (so far, only for iPeople): the great thing about it is that you can edit photos you have either on your phone, computer or tablet without the needing to transfer.

Layout (iTunes+Android+Google Play): best to create a collage that will fit and don’t get cut on Instagram or any other places.

EyeEm (iTunes+Android+Google Play): best filters to get a natural, not overdone final touch. Also, you are able to enter different, weekly contests as well as placing your photos in the ‘market’ to allow companies and organizations to buy them.

Fused (iTunes + Android + Google Play): app that allows you to create new images or videos, out of fusing two different photos/ videos together . Therefore, creates a nice effect of something original and very visual.

Extra tips! For fast edits when you want/ got to post a photo asap go straight to these: saturation (keep to a medium towards minimum) and sharpening (increase this pass medium point, but keeping an eye not to make the photo look granulated).

For quick, snappy videos use either Instagram or Vine. But if you want to edit a video real quick use VivaVideo: which is so far, the easiest app to create, edit and share short films.

Fyuse: (iTunes + Android + Google Play): this one is a bit tricky yet for sure the future of photos. It allows you to take a 3D photo, so when you rotate your phone the picture moves with you (but this effect only works within the app itself). You can export it and still share it on your social media, but it will become a video instead of a 3D photograph.
