Toms, the company who established the ‘One for One’ movement where you buy a pair of shoes and the company donates a pair of shoes to a child in a developing country, are now branching out into eyewear. The same business model applies to the sunglasses, except rather than receiving sunglasses; a child in the developing world will receive eye-saving surgery, medical treatment or prescription glasses. The glasses are gorgeous, too. Saving people’s sight in exchange for pretty things? Yes, please.
Sienna Miller is not the most inspiring of people. No one really knows why she’s famous as she’s never been overly successful in any of her many ventures, and she had all but disappeared for a long time. She features on the cover of this month’s Vogue, and while the interview itself is nothing to write home about, the photographs by Ryan McGinley are stunning.
Marc Jacobs is a busy man. Not only does he design for three different fashion labels, as well as constantly developing his accessories and fragrance lines, with a new fragrance due out this July, he’s now venturing into the world of cosmetics. With the line development with Sephora, now we just have to hope that there’s some way for us to get our hands on it.
It would seem the world has decided that it’s perfectly cool not to be entirely grossed out by the idea of snails crawling across their face, in a bid for amazing, youthful looking skin. We may have accepted fish pedicures as not being as mental an idea as it first seemed, but snails can keep their wrinkle and scar healing slimy qualities; it’s still disgusting.
Beach Body Diets
It’s that time of year again when diets and detoxes are being pushed left, right and centre in order to get you in the best shape of your life before you hit the beach. For the most part the detoxes aren’t overly helpful, they are just unpleasant and the constant barrage of diet-talk is not helping anyone’s body confidence. Spend more time discussing your summer wardrobe, not how you’ll fit into it.
The pyjama trend has been so far received with some amount of hesitance from all but the bravest of us, but transferring it to evening-wear is proving more hit and miss than its daytime counterpart. Looking like you have rolled out of bed with your hair and make-up done up suitable for the red carpet doesn’t make the most sense, even if you are Rihanna.
