Thankfully, WEN cleansing conditioners are on the market, and it is an all natural product sorting a 5 in 1 formula that is capable of breathing new vitality into any women’s hair.

EOS Sets New Standards For Lip Balm

EOS, or Evolution of Smooth, came into an oversaturated market and became the number one lip balm choice for the young generation. For over one hundred years, when people bought lip balm, they searched the store for the small cylinder, Chapstick. Seven years ago, EOS changed the world of lip balm with their pastel-colored orbs.

According to fastcompany.com, EOS’ lip balm quickly took over stores like Walmart and Target. The products are now also sold by online retailers Lucky Vitamin and  ULTA. EOS quickly gained support from celebrities Christina Aguilera and Kim Kardashian. The cute lip balm were featured in tons of beauty and fashion magazines.

 EOS lip balm quickly created a $250 million company that has become the second-best selling lip balm in the country. They even rose above the likes of Chapstick and Blistex, which have been around for decades.

This fast-growing company sells over 1 million orbs a week and their future is even more promising. The lip balm market is expected to increase to $2 billion in the next few years. This projection is driven by the consumers’ demand for natural and organic products; something EOS specializes in.

Beginning as a small start-up, EOS started out focusing every bit of their attention on creating quality products and getting them distributed. Co-founders, Sanjiv Mehra, Jonathan Teller, and Craig Dubitsky, had an impossible idea of shaking things up in the beauty industry.

Their prime candidate for a change was the lip balm category. They noticed that most lip balm were unchanged from decades before. They believed that most brands were driven by only cutting their costs and still competing on price with other brands. There lied their opportunity.

They targeted women, who studies have shown overwhelming use lip balm in comparison to men. The co-founders started creating a product that would be customized for a woman’s everyday experiences. They needed a product that was effective and also very pleasurable to use. Thus, EOS Lip Balm was created, and has flourished ever since.

Dick DeVos Seeks To Reform Education And help His Local Area

Dick DeVos is a philanthropist who has been on my radar for a number of years after I became aware of the work towards education reform he has played an important role in over the course of the last 30 years. I found out much more about the work of Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy through an interview with Betsy DeVos published by the Philanthropy Roundtable that explained much about the reasons why the couple became involved in the reform movement, and how they have worked in different political and philanthropic area to achieve the success they feel is not completed yet. For Dick DeVos, the need to find political answers to the many issues involved with education reform has driven him to become a member of the Michigan State Board of Education, and to work with politicians from all sides of the political spectrum to create a better way of bringing school choice and voucher programs to people across the U.S. The need to help others find the best ways of educating their children successfully came from a single visit to the Potter’s House Christian School in Michigan, which I am happy to see led to education reform becoming a major part of the life of Dick DeVos.


The Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation is a major part of the success I feel Dick DeVos has made of his own life, which include his period as the President of the AmWay Group. Established in 1990 the foundation has been one of the top groups I feel has helped millions of people across the U.S. in education and health care reform; Dick DeVos has not limited himself to simply providing funding for educational programs, but instead also looks to aid the people of Michigan following the 2008 economic slowdown. Through his work with the Kennedy Center for the Arts and the Grand Action Plan Dick DeVos has impressed me by providing arts and business programs designed to increase the cultural and financial success of the Grand Rapids, Michigan region.

Your hair, while it may be dead plays a pretty important role in your appearance. It is also actually an indicator of your health. Below are some tips and words of advice to keep your hair looking good, healthy and shiny so that you look your best everyday.

The key to having healthy and beautiful hair is to use the right shampoo for your hair type. If you have oily hair, use a gentle and mild shampoo that will cleanse your hair of excess oil but won’t strip too much and cause you to have dry, dull hair. If you have dry hair use a moisturizing shampoo that will add volume and shine. Finding the right shampoo and balance is key to maintaining a healthy appearance of your hair so you look and feel great.

When you are looking for a hair care product, you may be swamped by the staggering number of choices you have at your disposal. There are shampoos, conditioners, detanglers and many other hair care products you can buy. Do you need all of them? Will they be effective?

Kate Hudson Does Her Part In The Fight Against Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a serious health problem that impacts millions of people across the world every year. Thankfully, breast cancer awareness  has become a common concern for a wide variety of people, from high school athletes, all the way up to the President of the United States.

As is to be expected, various celebrities have also decided to do their part in helping rid the world of this destructive disease. One of the most recent of these celebrities was Kate Hudson.

This beautiful young actress is one of the most philanthropic celebrities in Hollywood, and she decided to focus her fashion firm, Fabletics, on the fight against breast cancer.

Fabletics focuses primarily on creating a variety of leisure wear, and is now working with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Her pairing helped her get chosen as the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer ambassador for the year.

This new role has her working to create a line that women will want to wear, with much of the proceedings going to help benefit breast cancer research groups on Fabletics. She will be working to use her fashion group to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer in a positive and constructive way.

When asked on the pairing, Hudson said: “It’s a no-brainer…I think every person has had an experience, or a friend, or parent or themselves, that has been diagnosed with breast cancer. When you think about it, it’s very scary, but we’ve come so far…We’ve got more and more survivors, but it’s something that’s still very much a part of our lives.”

What can fans of Fabletics expect from this new fashion line? Right now, it looks like it will contain one pair of capri leggings, a bralette, and two tank tops. The clothes here are relatively simple, for comfort’s sake, and currently shaded dark shades of pink. Hudson wanted to avoid bright shades that might be hard on the eye.

Pink is one of the main colors associated with breast cancer awareness, but Hudson wanted a “…pink with some depth to it,” in order to showcase the serious nature of breast cancer. Anything much lighter would seem too trite or “loud” for the purpose of this particular line.

In celebration of her new role and Fabletics new focus on fighting breast cancer, Hudson and her mother, Goldie Hawn, dyed their hair pink. To many, this was seem as a simple publicity stunt. However, Hudson and Hawn have years of experience working on projects like this.

As a result, it’s easy to see that this one hits close to home for both of them. Hopefully, her line is a success and raises some desperately needed funds for breast cancer research.

Georgetown Grads Continue Growth of Sweetgreens

Today, the Sweetgreens chain of restaurants is a practical staple for college studnets in Washington DC. What once started as a small restaurant offering a healthy off-campus lunch option has continued to grow into one of the most successful small business restaurants in the country. What makes the chain even more special to those in the DC area is that several graduates of Georgetown founded it.


Three Georgetown graduates of the 2007 class started the first Sweetgreens location on M Street in 2010. The three graduates were nearing the end of their college education when they began to discuss the lack of off campus dining options that provided an affordable, convenient, and healthy option. The three young men quickly bonded over the desire to serve quality and healthy food, start their own business, and add value to the Georgetown area that was not previously present.


After the three graduates worked and continued their education, they continued to formulate their plan to open their first location. After taking out a personal loan from friends, family members, and investors, the three young men were able to raise the capital that they needed to open their first location in Georgetown in 2010. For the first few years, the restaurant operated out of one location, but as the reputation for quality grew, so did the demand for expansion.


By the end of 2016, just six years after the company was first formed, Sweetgreens is expected to have over 40 locations with over 1,700 employees. The company has opened up new locations all over the East Coast, including in New York, Boston, and Baltimore. The company has plans to continue its growth into Northern California, Los Angeles, and Chicago. They company has also gained a following for its philanthropy, technology, and lifestyle.


All three of the founders share a co-CEO role and have different roles in the company. Nathaniel Ru has continued to be the focal head of the company and has taken on the role of discussing the business with investors, customers, reporters, and in public forums. He has been very important in helping to develop the reputation for quality, which has been a hit with customers and investors.


Healthy Jicama Taco Recipe by Markus Rothkranz

Everyone enjoys tacos, they are a quick and filling meal that can appeal to all palates. In this video we’re shown a healthy alternative to eating tacos. Most people eat tacos with some kind of tortilla, which are usually fried, and then add a meat protein, followed by some veggies, cheese, and other flavorings. However, Cara Brotman is going to show us how to make healthy, raw, vegan tacos that are jam packed with flavor but also very simple to make.

Cara starts off by slicing some jicama very thinly with her mandolin slicer. Once she’s got the right width of her taco shell, she starts making some guacamole. “Less is more.” Cara tells us to keep in mind when making guacamole. She states that in her younger years she would add all sorts of bell peppers, onions, olive oil, etc. to guacamole but it doesn’t need all that. Some cilantro, lime, onion, and salt is all you need to add to your mashed avocados for an easy and delicious guacamole.

Next Cara shows us a squirt bottle filled with cashew cream which she’s going to drizzle over the tacos once finished. Cara begins to show us how to make the jicama tacos. She slightly folds the jicama shell in the palm of her hand and then dabs the guacamole in the middle and tops the guacamole with the cauliflower mixture she made in a previous video. Then she drizzles the cashew cream on top and the jicama taco is finished and ready to eat. An optional topping would be an organic hot sauce that can be bought at Whole Foods.

Cara finishes the video by tasting the taco and telling us that the flavors are just explosive and delicious. She says it’s one of the fastest recipes and would be really great for kids, especially since it’s healthy. You could even skip the cauliflower mixture and just dab the guacamole in the middle, drizzle the cashew cream and hot sauce, and still have an amazing healthy alternative for tacos.
