TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW CAMPAIGN I urge you to contribute your refund and together, let's make a difference. Let's just get Greece sorted All this dithering over Greece is getting boring. European ministers flexing their muscles and posturing over whether they can help the Greek people of not. Why don't we the people just sort it instead?

What We Need & What You Get €1.6bn is what the Greeks need. It might seem like a lot but it's only just over €3 from each European. That's about the same as half a...

Why Are These Five-Year-Olds Are Taking Over the Fashion World?

Kids in fashion world
Our latest style icons aren't sitting front row at designer shows or walking red carpets in haute couture. In fact, some are still learning how to walk at all. We're talking about the stylish kids in the single-digit age range who have been blowing up on social media in recent months, judging by the upwards of 100,000 Instagram followers some of them have. It seems we can't get enough of these fashionistas in all of their pint-sized glory — and in doing so, we've elevated them to a status usually reserved for adults. A modern social media obsession: The fixation over kid's clothes has been brewing for a few years, with Tumblrs, blogs and countless photos across social media dedicated to fashion-forward youth. On Instagram, you...

From “Ugly” To “Beautiful” In Latest Internet Fad #DontJudgeChallenge

eyes-586849_12801
Two weeks ago, it was the hashtag #ThePowerOfMakeup that had everyone coating only half their face in product. This month, it looks like social media users are going crazy over the #DontJudgeChallenge. The latest trend on Instagram and Twitter is encouraging youngsters to transform themselves from "ugly" to "beautiful" in an effort to remind others not to judge someone by their looks. But for as many fans as the hashtag has racked up, there are just as many users unhappy with the message it's promoting. For instance, some people are annoyed that certain beauty features, such as a uni-brow, missing teeth and acne, are automatically deemed "ugly." While others are content to just embrace their natural imperfections.   Written by ALLISON CACICH, writer for lifeandstylemag.com Source - http://www.lifeandstylemag.com/posts/people-transform-themselves-from-ugly-to-beautiful-in-latest-internet-fad-dontjudgechallenge-62489...

After a year of negotiating with The Humane Society of the United States and The Fur Free Alliance, Hugo Boss has agreed to stop using fur as of fall 2016. FFA is a coalition of 40 animal protection organizations in 28 countries trying to end the fur trade. A Hugo Boss spokesman said,”For many years Hugo Boss has continuously decreased the use of fur and subsequently, only a very small share was left in the last collections. The last rabbit fur used was for select pieces only (trims on hoods and on sleeves for example), which we have now completely dropped.” In a Q&A in Boss’ 2014 Sustainability Report, Hugo Boss brand and creative director of sportswear Bernd Keller said, “[Hugo Boss...

But as it turns out, that last aspect of these popular pants may also be exactly what makes them the deadliest piece of clothing in your wardrobe! A 35-year-old Australian woman was recently hospitalized for four days after experiencing muscle damage, swelling and nerve blockages in her legs due to wearing (and squatting in) tight-fitting denim for several hours. The unidentified patient had spent the previous day helping a friend move, which led to squatting for long periods...
