    Want more money? Look what you have to do!

    Want more money? Look what you have to do!

    How we spend money that we earn so that we reach for invoices, rates, clothes, food, fun? What’s waste without realizing it, reach the end of each month to exclaim: “I do not know where the money went!”  We prepared a special article dedicated to personal finance management with relevant advice from specialists. Here are some of their comments:

    “Savings can be made only if we intend this. There are two perceptions that are misleading in my opinion. The first is that if we had more money we make and savings. Then we see that consumption patterns will come standard, if we still believe that should be more that we save and the race goes on forever. The second perception is that savings are only meaningful if large amounts (not absolute, but relative to income each). We must recognize, however, that when we have an amount saved (regardless of its amount) is better than nothing. So it is absolutely mandatory to have a discipline to enter and use the monthly savings, regardless of the amount that we can afford to keep it. ”

     How can we reduce monthly expenses?

    Thomas Lander, Executive Director and Fincance Broker:

    “With a little attention, we can save significant amounts without giving up a certain standard of living. Solutions are multiple: the use of electronics and appliances economic to use proper accounts and bank cards. It is better to have wallet full of cards to choose one with the best cost and to use it mainly for payments to traders and not for cash withdrawals. Similarly, an internet banking application could halve costs money orders and bank transfers.”

    When we get salary, what we should do, after paying bills / rates?

    Billy Wayne , Director of Credit:

    “”Of course priorities are regular expenses like credit installments, rent, bills and utility services and seasonal (quarterly / half-yearly / annual) as compulsory insurance. In over 50% of householder,  income go to consumer spending represent majority of food, entertainment, clothing, medicines.”

    In addition, we propose as ideal a monthly savings for:

    - A reserve fund (ie. 2-5% of income) that it can allocate to need an unscheduled trip but necessary to solve a health problem, other unforeseen events (eg. The wedding of a friend )

    - Holiday fund.

    Anna Sui

    Anna Sui singularity lies in her ability to weave her own passions into her work. Her creations are intricate pastiches of vintage eras and knowing nods to music and popular culture -from #60s Portobello to downtown rockers and B-Boys. Her love for fashion began early. Growing up in a sleepy suburb of Detroit, Sui spent her days styling her dolls and collating her genius files, a source book of magazine clippings that she continues to reference today.

    In the 1970′s she began studying at Parsons School of Desi´gn in New York´, where she became a regular on the underground punk scene and where she met photographer Steven Meisel, a long time friend and collaborator. Sui spent the remainder of the ’70s designing for a string of sportwear companies. Then, in 1980, she presented a six piece collection at the Boutique Show, receiving an immediate order from Macy´’s. Sui made her runway debut proper in 1991, the collection was a critically aclaimed homage to her heroine, Coco Chanel. And by the early ’90s , her self-consciously maximalist look was helping to pave the way for designers like Marc Jacobs, sparking a revival in the New York fashion scene.

    In 1992, she won th CFDA Perry Ellis Award for Néw fashion Talent. Sui encapsulated the grunge spirit of the times, with Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha  a close friend appearing in the Winter 1995 California Dreaming show, and Courtney Love famously adopting Sui’s classic baby-doll dresses. Sui now has stores in New York, LA, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Shangai, Tokyo, Osaka, and has added denim, sportwear, shoes and accesories to her brand. Her kitsch cosmetics and best-selling fragrances, with distinctive rose-embossed packaging, have all helped to establish her as an important designer and shrewd businesswomen, with an eccentric spirit and limitless sense of fun. In 2006, a limited edition Anna Sui Boho Barbie was launched with mattel. In 2010 saw the launch of Sui’s first book, a retrospective chronicling the past 20 years of her runway, editorial and celebrity experiences.
