It is often said that the clothes make the man, or women. In a way, it is true. While a lot of people would like to chant that a person should not be judged by clothes, the truth is that a lot of them judge themselves by their clothes. There have been studies conducted that showed the effect that fashion has on the mood and mindset of an individual. People who have dressed better have experienced a rise in confidence and overall sense of self worth. This is not to say that everyone should wear either a suit and tie or a dress.
There is another aspect to fashion. It is diversity. Fashion must also be used for self expression. This could be hard for people that seem to be stuck with a uniform. Fortunately, there are people that are working hard at bringing as much diversity to fashion as possible. Don Ressler is one of them. He is always willing to look at the industry in order to find a gap. He wants to provide enough diversity for everyone to find their own style. Therefore, they will not only feel good about what they are wearing but about themselves in whole.
In a way, the clothes do make the person. This is one of the reasons that people who take an interest in fashion do not lose that interest. One thing Don Ressler wants to do with his brand Fabletics, is make sure that people are able to express themselves. As a matter of fact, people are more likely to accept a compliment when it is towards the style they like. While Don Ressler has an idea on what would work for the individual, it is up to the individual to decide what she wants. Therefore, she will achieve the unique look that increases her confidence. Pando writes that Mr. Ressler has already built JustFab into a billion dollar business, so the sky is the limit for this new fashion empire.
Winter is just around the corner and we all know what that means – dry, cracked lips. As if finding and wearing lipstick didn’t chap your lips enough already, but combined with the dry, cold air of winter, winter lipstick wearing is a losing game.
Fortunately, there are lipsticks on the market that don’t dry your lips out, like Velvetines Liquid Lipsticks line from Lime Crime; and with over thirty shades, finding one you love is almost certain. Plus, they’re certified vegan by PETA and certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny. Win-win!
As the website says, the liquid lipsticks are inspired by the texture of rose petals and dry to a touchable velvet finish.
Here are three excellent Lime Crime Velvetines to try out this winter, all available on UrbanOutfitters:
This dark and sultry shade of deep red is perfect for the moodiness of winter. Hovering somewhere between blood red and black, this is a fierce shade that would match well with that LBD. It’s also limited edition, so grabbing one now (for only $20 too!) is probably a good idea.
This grey-blue shade is reminiscent of wintertime and holiday decorations. The grey aspect tones down the blue a little bit without making it dull. This shade fits in well with the bright colors Lime Crime is famous for without being overly bright, making it a wonderful fit for the subdued colors of winter.
With a name like Marshmallow, how could this not be a fit for winter? This frosty shade of pink adds the fun flush of playing outside in the cold and is wearable enough for the everyday.
All three Velvetines cost $20 each and can be ordered online at Lime Crime’s store on Glambot. Or you can order online at Doll’s Kill.
First used by the ancient Egyptians, shea butter has been one of the world’s most effective natural moisturizers for the skin and hair for thousands of years. It is actually a triglyceride fat which is extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. Valued for its healing properties for dry skin, shea butter is often added to lotions, creams, and lip balms as well as hair conditioners. It is rich in vitamins A and E and is helpful for a myriad of skin problems, such as scarring and stretch marks.
It may be surprising to learn that shea butter is edible and is commonly used as a cooking oil in some African countries. Other uses in these countries may include candle-making, water-proofing, hair-dressing, and the preservation of traditional wooden musical instruments, as well as skin protection and moisturization.
Shea butter may be used for medicinal purposes, both on the African continent and elsewhere. In Nigeria, for example, it is often used as a topical pain reliever and as a nasal decongestant and sinusitis remedy. In other countries, such as the United States, shea butter may also be found in anti-inflammatory ointments and sunscreen lotions.
Eu’Genia Shea is a unique enterprise that offers consumers top quality shea butter products while empowering women in northern Ghana at the same time. Founded by Harvard MBA graduate Naa-Sakle Akuete and her mother, the company partners with all-female cooperatives to give women an opportunity to earn higher than average wages and to receive job training while harvesting the shea nuts. The company is named for Akuete’s mother, who immigrated to the United States from Ghana with her husband in the 1970s.
Whereas many products that claim shea butter as a main ingredient usually only contain about 20%, the shea content of Eu’Genia Shea is 95%. There are four fragrances from which to choose and customers may select from three levels of skin care need: Everyday, Pregnancy, and Dermatological.
