Fashion and the Presidential Campaign

I’m sure hardcore political analysts like to think fashion and style don’t play a major role in the always competitive presidential races, but every four years it seems both make a larger impact on the race than years past and the 2016 race is no different. Just take Hillary Clinton’s raved-about haircut makeover back in July. Reports revealed former Secretary of State Clinton had half of the New York City department store Bergdorf Goodman shutdown for her appointment with John Barrett at his private salon. The haircut reportedly cost $600! Clinton’s campaign told the media the makeover was geared towards making Clinton more fashionable which in turns makes her more appealing to millennials.

All too often, subscription boxes can leave us feeling – well, boxed in. I don’t know about you, but I like more than just beauty, or just fashion, or just fitness products. But I don’t have unlimited funds to get subscription boxes each month for all the kinds of products I like.

beauty tips for trans women transitioning

The Trans Girl’s Guide To Beauty

trans women beauty tips transitioningI’ve been contemplating this article for a long time because the topic of beauty for transgender girls and women is one that I think is both important and fascinating, and in light of the Caitlyn Jenner* thing, it seems appropriate. I am a strong supporter of the transgender community because, well, I’d like to think I’m a strong supporter of all communities (that don’t promote hate) – and the recent hubbub with Planet Fitness has brought the issue to the forefront for some who might not have known it existed.

Can You Work In The Beauty Industry and Still Be Pro-Women?

So you know that weird phenomenon where you learn a new word or talk about something really random, and then it seems to follow you around?

(Actually, I’m pretending to sound like I don’t know what it’s called right now, but I do. There’s a name for it and that name is the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon.

This habit is almost universal among intelligent women, and that vaguely relates to what we’ll be discussing today.)  Continue reading “Can You Work In The Beauty Industry and Still Be Pro-Women?”
