Experts estimate that Americans eat over 20 billion hot dogs every year. That’s about 60 for every American each year.
Originally called frankfurters, their origin can be traced back to 1852 in Frankfurt, Germany. From the start, frankfurters were basically small sausages.
Today, some are made entirely of one type of meat, such as beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. There are even vegetarian hot dogs that contain no meat at all. Many hot dogs, however, are more like traditional sausages, because they are made from a secret recipe containing a mixture of a variety of ingredients.
NEW YORK STYLE
Although there are as many special recipes out there, most of them consist of a similar set of ingredients. These include meat, meat fat, filler (such as flour or bread crumbs), egg whites, and spices. Some popular spices include salt, pepper, onion, and garlic.
Shoes are a design statement, pieces of art: e.g. Manolo Blahnik, Prada, Jimmy Choo, and of course, my favorite, Chris Louboutin. At their best, they are a design statement, pieces of art almost.
The classic Louboutin style is the Pigalle, which is basically a very sophisticated pointed pump. It rarely goes on sale around the world, even the seasonal colours usually sell out long before the sale even begins and if you’re after the nude or black, expect the prices to go up almost year on year.
Not all Chris Louboutin’s are high heels. He has created divine Velvet Venetian Loafers that are chic and comfortable.
In my opinion, Christian Louboutin’s are the most luxurious and alluring shoes in the world. Their elegance makes any woman’s legs look like a piece of art, sensual and attractive, giving the whole body that look of independence and power any modern woman loves to wear. A fetching combination!

ELEGANT HANDBAG NEW YORK STYLE
Born Katherine Noel Brosnahan, the Kansas City, Missouri, native was a former accessories editor at the now-closed Mademoiselle magazine before she and Andy Spade launched their namesake design company, Kate Spade New York, in 1993. The couple married the following year.
They began by selling handbags before expanding to include clothing, jewelry, bedding, leg wear and fragrances.
The brand grew into a fashion empire, known for accessories that offered affordable luxury to younger working women. Her brightly colored, clean-lined style offered a spunky take on fashion at time when luxury handbags were out of reach to most consumers, and the industry was dominated by venerable European brands.
