Eco Conscious Sprout Watches

To keep up with an ever-evolving world, this eco-conscious company is doing their part to be kinder to the earth and preserve our natural resources. These eco-friendly timepieces from Sprout are made from people who are nothing less than environmentally aware. Producing watches for over 50 years, Sprout watches carry a 100% biodegradable case and buckle, a natural bamboo dial, mercury-free battery, a mineral crystal lens and a 100% organic cotton strap. Sprout is insistent in making the most eco-friendly watch possible and with their unique and colorful designs.

Sprout watches are in two sizes. The small size sprout watch is 80% eco-friendly while the larger size watch is 86% eco-friendly. All watches are in compliance with the CPSIA and are lead and phthalate free. The corn resin that is used is in full compliance with the American ASTM D6400 as well as the European EN13432 standards for compostable material. Through their corn resin used to make each watch, the shelf life is similar to regular synthetic plastics meaning it will not break down during regular wear and use.

The majority of the cotton used in the world is made with toxic chemicals, but not Sprout watches. Sprout watches are 100% organic and that means that they are grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. The cotton used is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers making these watches extremely eco-friendly.

The bamboo used as the dial of watch is eco-friendly based on its properties as a natural fiber, a quick-growth plant that sequesters greenhouse gases, and a renewable plant that can grow back after its three to five year harvesting period. It largely doesn’t need chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers to grow and this is why it is added in the watch. As for the lens, most of the medium price range of watches is made from plexiglass, which is a type of synthetic plastic. Sprout watches carry a mineral crystal lens which is a type of glass made from sand.

Sprout watches only use Mercury-free batteries and the reason for this is because exposure to even small amounts of it can cause negative health effects including damage to the brain, kidneys, lungs and a developing baby. The packaging for the watches is made from at least 80% post-consumer fibers and it is both recycled and recyclable. More on these watches and the entire collection can be checked out at www.sproutwatches.com

Handbags

Designer handbags are forever going to be in style. Louis Vuitton, Hermès, and Chanel are just some of the household designer names women carry around day to day. Some women though, have these bags just stored in the closet collecting dust. And if that’s you, FashionPhile is just the thing you’ve been looking for.
In 1999, Sarah Davis, a young Law student, had a brilliant idea to help pay off her loans – selling pre-owned designer handbags. It started with E-Bay and with the help of her sister and brother-in-law; it has become the largest pre-owned designer handbag company.




Classic Chanel and Hermes handbags that you can find at FashionPhile

People all over the country send Sarah their designer handbags to sell to other people at a cheaper cost. Sarah explains, “Designers never have sales, so this is a good way to find that high-priced bag for a little bit cheaper and still in good condition.” If over-spending on handbags is your vice, FashionPhile could be your rehab.
Not only are people finding designer handbags at a discounted price, but in ways, they are helping recycle. Giving up your bag and buying another pre-owned one takes less manufacturing. Plus it saves room in your closet where otherwise your bags would be piling up.
Authenticity has been challenged in handbags over the last few years. FashionPhile makes sure that the bags people are sending are 100% the real deal. As an avid handbag buyer herself, Sarah Davis knows what’s fake and what’s not. Luckily, she has had loyal clients throughout the years that are just as in love with bags as she is. “You won’t find more than a tiny scratch on these bags. They are in high-quality condition and if they’re not, we don’t show them.”

The showroom in Beverly Hills
With the newest addition to FashionPhile’s business being their year-old boutique in Beverly Hills, business has sky-rocketed. There are hundreds of bags lining the shelves and even more in their storage room. Ben Hemminger, Sarah’s brother-in-law, jumped into the project to help with the business management. “If you came in to the store next week, half of these bags will be bought and new ones will be up. With all of the ones we have in storage we could open up another store!” WhichFashionPhile plans on doing within the next year.

Bend the Rules” Underwear

What do Charlie Sheen, Bruce Willis and many of Hollywood’s ‘Hot Men’ have in common?
The answer to that lies just under their pricey designer clothes where you will find Bend the Rules underwear, a hot item with the Hollywood “it” crowd. They love the luxurious fabric, trendy look and fabulous fit.
Hollywood A-list men, and even some women too, are trading in their boring Fruit of the Looms or Hanes for Bend the Rules pizzazz.
Most people can’t seem to buy enough of them! Charlie Sheen who has purchased over 100 pair. And even though they are men’s BoxerBriefs, women also love to wear them. Female celebrities such as Christina Aguilera love the soft luxurious feel of the fabric.
Bend the Rules Red with Dragon.“The list of top celebrities wearing our underwear is so long it’s difficult to think of the ones who don’t own a pair of ‘Bend the Rules’”, says company founder Markus Bender.
He explains the craze, “I think men are becoming much more conscious of their bodies and the effects it has on their person of interest. We receive a lot of calls from men and women saying how hot our underwear makes their guy look. Probably why Hollywoods’ hottest men are buying them by the dozen!!!”
Bend the Rules designer and CEO, Markus Bender, previously a personal trainer to the Beverly Hills elite, is meticulous with the way clothes fit the body. Unable to find a pair of mens underwear that felt great and would flatter his nearly perfect physique, he designed his own, working for over a year with fabric knitters to develop the perfect fabric. A fabric that retains it’s shape, feels incredible to the touch and is very breathable, since an active lifestyle is a big part of what he enjoys doing. Also, he never was keen on the shapeless back of most brands, he made sure his Bend the Rules are contoured to hug and give shape to your glutes.

Tighty-whiteys are so blasé. Why give your guy conventional undergarments in his stocking when you can spice up his private wardrobe with rockin’ Bend The Rules underwear and t-shirts?

Bend the Rules of Beverly Hills underwear and t-shirts, designed by Markus Bender, are boldly emblazoned with fierce dragons, skulls, and gothic emblems – perfect for the ‘bad boy’ on your list. Bend The Rules M.O.
Bend the Rules is a Beverly Hills-based maker of the finest men’s boxer brief on the market.
Markus spent over a year perfecting fabric – which he feels was certainly time well spent. Not only does the formulated blend of Tencel feel more luxurious, its 130% more absorbent than cotton. It’s breathable, antibacterial and is made of a natural fiber that is ecologically sound for the environment. Bend the Rules gives comfort, function, and a superior yet fashionable fit.
Fill up your special guy’s stocking this season with something that will spice to both of your lives.

Stylish New Jewelry


Accessories_14 Accessories_17 These eyecatching pieces are crafted by hand in Dorian's studio in NYC using semiprecious stones, sterling silver & Venetian glass - originally inspired by her travels. “Italy had always been one of my favorite countries to visit," notes the award-winning designer. "The almost palpable sense of their history, the appreciation of the things that make life pleasurable, and the celebration of beauty wherever it may appear, was not only evident in its magnificent buildings but also in something simple as a carefully placed bowl of colorful handblown glass beads shimmering in a shop window.”
Another fashion jewelry site we love is Tano Jewelry. Tano has the most affordable Wholesale Fashion Jewelry for businesses and the cutest headbands and jewelry for consumers.

Accessories_15 From the clusters of Labradorite-faceted briolette bracelet to the silver cuff bearing a glass medalion of a Venetian lion, pearl & silver tassel earrings, or a pearl choker adorned with a mother-of-pearl flower, these pieces are as collectible as they are colorful. “The transformative power of color is amazing,” says Webb. “Because of its intimate nature and closeness to the body, the right color of jewelry can immediately draw attention to your most flattering features...To me, a piece of jewelry is successful when, inevitably, every time you wear it, someone tells you how beautiful you are.

Makeup naturally nude

Keep your makeup naturally nude & gorgeous with these easy tips from CoverGirl makeup artist Molly Stern:
  • EASY DOES IT "Keep it light," advises Stern. "The days of allover pancake coverage are gone. If you have ruddy cheeks, just apply coverage where you need it. The main thing is to keep skin fresh."
  • HIGHLIGHT A SINGLE FEATURE "Identify the feature you want to highlight. If it's your eyes, make them lined &smokey and plump up your lashes, but tone down your lip & cheek." Alternatively, go for a dramatic mouth, but keep the rest of your face neutral.
  • MASCARA: THINK BROWN, NOT BLACK "A well-defined lash line is important, but for summer, take it down a notch by using brown instead of black mascara because it gives a softer eye."
  • BLUSH FROM A BOTTLE "Cream blush is more natural than powder, because it looks like it's coming from the skin rather than sitting on top, adding rosy depth in a natural way that's not powdery." In case of beauty emergencies where you find yourself blush-bereft, rub some of your lipstick on your cheek. (Stern suggest CoverGirl TruShine lipstick - it's sheer, but still loaded with pigment.)
  • THOU SHALT NOT OVERDO SELF-TANNER Before applying the self-tanner, be sure to exfoliate with a body scrub first, especially porous areas like knees, heels & elbows. (If you accidentally go overboard, rubbing alcohol or Windex can lift some of the excess color.) "Go lighter than you think you should," says Stern. "If you’re fair, makes no sense to get Hawaiian tan. Instead, you might want to use tinted moisturizer and add a tiny bit of darker shade & get deeper look."
  • DOES YOUR FACE MATCH YOUR ENSEMBLE? "The emergence in fashion of so many gorgeous prints & florals means that it's really important to keep a balance with your makeup. Keep it fresh, and the colors neutral - a light shimmer on the eye and a nude lip looks really modern." (And don't forget to blend, blend, blend!)

Some makeup product picks to try:

  • Beauty_3 Beauty_4  
  • FOUNDATION & CONCEALER As an alternative to some of the more pricey brands, Stern recommends CoverGirl Advanced Radiance Age Defying Concealer & Advanced Radiance Moisturizing Makeup. "Their motto is clean, fresh, easy, breezy, and these foundations are guaranteed to match 97% of skin tones. The colors are sheer and even contain Olay ingredients to repair and smooth, whether you're preventing the signs of aging, or trying to repair them." (Alternatively, Shu Uemura foundation can easily be thinned with water for a fab sheer foundation.) At Drugstore.com
  • Beauty_6 Beauty_5  
  • POWDER TruBlend Naturally Luminous Loose Powder with Minerals "It's gorgeous for dusting some shimmer on shoulders, the back of the neck & the neckline." At Drugstore.com

Get Gorgous Summer Skin

Beauty


Summer is all about digging into juicy, refreshing fresh fruit...but have you ever considered what an effective - and cost-effective - skincare solution it provides? Unlike many of the pricey department store lotions, face scrubs, cleansers and other beauty products, fresh fruit is budget-friendly and you know exactly what you're putting on your skin. Raechel Cunningham, licensed aesthetician and director of New York Laser & Aesthetics Spa in New York City, has hand picked some of her favorite fruits for a medley of do-it-yourself, homemade skin-tastic remedies to treat, moisturize and rejuvenate all your skin care needs:
  • Aloe Soothing & cool to the skin, and stops pain & itching. High in AloeEctin B, which stimulates the immune system.
  • Avocado Hydrates dry skin; filled with natural fatty acids, protein, Vitamins A and C.
  • Apples High in AHA’s and antioxidants. Great for dissolving flaky skin.
  • Baking Soda Neutralizes the Ph of the skin and pulls out excess heat.
  • Banana Contains Vitamins A, B, and C. Soothing and healing. The most beneficial part of the banana is the inside of the skin.
  • Blueberry High in AHA’s and antioxidants. Great for revitalizing dull skin.
  • Chamomile Soothes irritated skin.
  • Egg White Full of protein, eggs whites act as a tightening agent and is great for oily skin.
  • Garlic Purifying and antibacterial properties. Great for acne. Beware if you are not a garlic lover!
  • Green Tea High in antioxidants. Stimulates circulation and has anti- inflammatory properties.
  • Honey High in Vitamins C, D, E and B complex. Honey has natural effects on the skin and is known to be an antiseptic salve.
  • Lemon Packed with Vitamin C and AHA’s. Great for oily skin and acts as a natural skin lightener.
  • Milk Full of proteins, Vitamins A, D, & E. Has strong soothing properties.
  • Oatmeal Contains healing properties. Oatmeal serves as both an exfoliator and moisturizer. This is great for dry/sensitive skin.
  • Olive Oil High in natural fatty acids. This emollient is a moisturizing ingredient similar to avocado.
  • Strawberry High in AHA’s, BHA’s, and Vitamin C. This acts as a cleansing astringent for oily skin. Helps to even skin tone.
  • Sugar This is a natural AHA in which Glycolic acid is derived from. This is a great exfoliator for the skin.
  • Tomato Contains Lycopene which is excellent for the skin. This ingredient is great for oily skin. It removes surface impurities, exfoliates, shrinks pores and regulates skin tone.
  • Wheat Flour Thickening agent for skin remedies.
  • Yogurt Contains enzymes which aid in removing dirt and dead skin cells from the skin.

Raechel's Tips & Tricks for maximum fruit & veggie beauty benefits:

  • When selecting fresh fruit and veggies, it is best to use organically grown varieties. This will give you maximum benefits.
  • Fruit and veggie skin care is best used when prepared and applied on the same day. Avoid making more than you need for a single application.
  • Make sure you clean and sanitize all counter tops and mixing utensils before making any of the recipes.
  • Leave all ingredients out of the fridge for up to an hour before mixing. Don’t let the fruits get any warmer than room temperature.
  • Fresh fruits and veggies are very high in acids. Be careful not to overdo it. If you apply anything to your skin and encounter a burning sensation, remove immediately and apply cool water.

Beauty_6 CLEANSE:

  • Normal/Acne/Oily skin: Mix 1 tablespoon plain or vanilla yogurt with the juice of 1/4 lemon & massage onto skin. Rinse with warm water.
  • Dry/Sensitive: Moisten a chamomile tea bag with warm water. Gently massage moist tea bag in tiny circles around face to gently loosen dead skin cells.
  • Olive Oil makeup remover (all skin types): Take a paper towel and fold in half 3 times. Apply a drop of olive oil to paper towel. Keeping your eyes closed, wipe downwards from upper eye lid down. Avoid getting olive oil in the eye.

Beauty_5 STEAM:
After cleansing & before exfoliating, steam your skin to open the pores. Fill a 6 quart pot ¼ of the way full with water, cover with a lid and bring to a boil. (For astringent and tonic properties, add lemon juice to boiling water.) Take the pot off the stove and place it on an oven safe surface where it is a good height to lean over the pot exposing your face to the steam. For best results sit down at a table with a small to medium towel draped over the back of your head to keep the steam localized to the face. Steaming can occur for 5-10 min. Exfoliate after steaming.
Beauty_3 EXFOLIATE:
  • Normal/Acne/ Oily: Combine 1 tablespoon of tomato juice with 1½ tablespoon of sugar, and massage in tiny circles all over face and neck. Avoid using near eyes. Rinse thoroughly
  • Dry/Sensitive: Mix together 1 tablespoon of yogurt with 1 tablespoon of plain uncooked oatmeal, and massage into skin with tiny circles. Rinse thoroughly
  • Dry skin: Slice 1/2 an avocado. Use the inside of the skin with avocado residue & massage into small circles over skin. Once you have completed the whole face, turn the avocado skin to the rough side and gently massage in tiny circles. Rinse thoroughly & prepare to apply mask.

Beauty FACIAL MASKS:
  • Acne: Whip together a clove of minced garlic, ½ tomato with seeds finely chopped, 1 tablespoon tomato juice & 1 egg white. Apply to skin, and to ensure the ingredients stay put, either lie down, or unfold a gauze pad, cut out holes for your eyes and mouth, moisten & press against skin over the mask.
  • Dry skin: Whip together 1 mashed strawberry, 1 teaspoon of honey, ¼ avocado meat mashed & 1 teaspoon of wheat flour. Leave on 3-5 minutes.
  • Normal/Dry: Mash together 3-5 blueberries, 2-3 circular slices of a banana & 1 tablespoon of wheat flour. (If it's too firm, add a drop of apple juice.) Leave on 3-5 minutes
  • All skin types: Mix together ½ lemon, 1 tablespoon of honey & 1 tablespoon wheat flour. (If it's too soupy, add more honey or wheat flour.) Leave on 3-5 min.
  • Puffy eyes: Moisten 2 green tea bags with warm water and apply over eyes for 5-10 minutes while you lie down & chill.
Beauty_2 BODY CARE:
  • Sunburn relief: Into a bath filled with tepid water, pour 2 cups of raw uncooked oatmeal, 1 cup of milk & 1 tablespoon of honey. Soak for 5-10 min. Alternatively, pour 2 cups baking soda into cool-tepid water & soak for 10 minutes. After you get out of the bath, apply 1-2 aloe peeled aloe leaves...slimy, but a huge relief.
  • Dry/Ashy skin: Pour 1 quart of apple juice & ¼ cup of olive oil into a warm bath & soak.
  • Rough hands: Chop 3-5 mint leaves in a mixing bowl, and squeeze in 1/2 a lime. Add in 1 tablespoon each of sugar & olive oil. Massage into the palm of your hand working the product around. This is a great cuticle treatment!
