    Predictive Book

  • Sans ConstrainteEnjoy an age, born from the ashes of frugality and parsimoniousness, where glamour and EXCESS are now the new ruler. As humanity is nolonger constrained to think in terms of what is logical and literal, dreams and creativity are once again set free to flourish. Overabundance is ever-present in a scene drenched with lavish jewels, furs, and pearls.

    Bask in an ETHEREAL haze, disconnected from reality, where former boundaries become subdued. Get lost in worldly ESCAPADES, far from the dull and homely. Take charge of your life, as the TECHNOLOGY CONNOISSEUR automates the mundane to focus on what matters most. As the world becomes smaller, the ECO-CHIC understands the impor-tance of sustainability, which is now incorporated into luxurious items in this era of opulence.

  • EtherealDrift from the jaded and uninspired; tran-scend to follow dreams down the path of the unexpected. Inspired by the limitless bounds of the imagination, the haze is a fertile garden used to continually redefine oneself. No longer forced to think in terms of what is logical and literal, dreams and creativity are once again set free to flourish.

    EscapadesAs the earth continues leaping to our finger-tips and her appeal glows bright in our eyes, we venture to be inspired by faraway places to escape our dull, daily grind. The farther and more eclectic the places capture the mind of the creative.

    Technology ConnoisseurThe evolution of technology allows us to be de-pendant on our innovations; we feel enthralled to own the most ground-breaking achievements in human existence. As scientists unravel and re-alize the dreams of designers, affordable wear-able electronics can sense ambiance, environ-ment, and movement. Alternative energy sources have been the main focus for decades, and with the help of the innovators and early adopt-ers, solar panels are now painted across the rooftops and alternative energy is affordable..

  • ExcessAs the pains of the recession fade away, the finer things in life once again become a real-ity instead of a distant hope. Jewelry dan-gles freely from the bare necklines and wrists to show how lavish these times are. Thrifty and frugal are tired, while opulence radiates from the lounges and laughter fills the streets.

    Eco-ChicAfter centuries of searching for a different world to live in, humanity realizes that their homes wellbeing has been overlooked. As it dawns on us that our planet, with its delicate eco-system, is crumbling in our hands we try to educate the world on the importance of caring for it. With the previous years inadequate early adopters, there are countless who are simply lost, un-able to hear the earths hums of discordance. More-over, with the pasts economy collapse, not all the individuals who understand the issue at hand possess the wealth to be sustainable. In this day of prosperity and affluence, environmental friendliness becomes a viable choice.
