The cosmetics industry is one of the most fascinating, popular, and profitable industries in the world and it has been for quite some time. Companies/brands have come and went, but many of the top contenders such as L’Oréal, Maybelline, and Cover Girls are still around. There’s a newcomer on the scene who’s been stirring up the industry with it’s unconventional style and that brand is known as Lime Crime. This eclectic brand has only been around since 2008, but it has grown into a cosmetic giant over that past few years. Founder Doe Deere is the woman of the hour and Lime Crime is the brand to beat and this is why.
This Russian native actually grew up in New York City after moving here as a teen. Doe always seem to be a bit different when it came to style and fashion. Bright make-up and vividly bold colors was her calling card, but who knew it would turn into a “cult favorite” years later. Doe first started a small business on Ebay around 2004 where she modeled and manufactured her very own products. Since the market was already flooded with other similar brands, Doe decided to rethink her business preposition as she found an untapped niche. No other brands were using eclectic colorful hues at the time and this is when Lime Crime came into fruition. Her small independent company was birthed in 2008 and from there on, it has created quite the commotion. It’s “Velvetine Collection” is a line of luxurious liquid matte finish lip sticks. These lip stick’s popularity soared immediately and Lime Crime became a major player in the industry. Lime Crime also stood out thanks to being animal cruelty-free, paraben-free, as well as being certified vegan.
Doe Deere developed this product line as a reflection of her very own style. Lime Crime comes with a wide array of colors such as utopia, pink, salem, riot, raven, cement, jinx, fetish, cashmere, and many more. This every color of the rainbow and then some. As of today, Doe Deere and Lime Crime are leading the way in modern day cosmetology.

Rapamycin as an Anti-aging Drug Component
Based on his research findings, Blagosklonny concluded that rapamycin could be used as an alternative to anti-aging medicines. Blagosklonny also believes that the available anti-aging drugs can be used in developing effective solutions for life extension. Some drugs are thought to increase the lifespan of people by ten years. Rapamycin is a compound that can be used to develop anti-aging drugs. The compound was first used in organ transplants for suppressing the immune system. It was concluded that rapamycin could lengthen the lifespan of animals by 14 percent.
Blagosklonny believes that one of the major causes of age-related diseases and death is immune system aging. Furthermore, old people tend to fall ill quickly and respond slowly to vaccines because of their weak immune systems. In ant-aging studies, slow response to drugs by the body is a sign of worn out cells. Rapamycin can be used to boost the immunities of people and decrease their susceptibility to diseases. Blagosklonny concluded that one of the ways of living longer is by adopting healthy dieting plan. Rapamycin relies on the mTOR protein for it to be effective. The protein is also affected by high-calorie intake. Visit ResearchGate to know more about Mikhail’s latest work.
Fabletics is an activewear clothing company. Last year, Forbes did an article on the company that talked about how the company is taking on Amazon, which controls a chunk of the e-commerce fashion market. Here’s a recap of the article and what kind of reviews are out there about Fabletics.
Fabletic’s strategy involves offering memberships and opening more physical stores in the near future. The Forbes’ article noted that the company currently has sixteen stores that are open in states such as California, Hawaii, Florida and Illinois.
The general manager, Gregg Throgmartin, of Fabletics said the secret is building a different version of high-value brand from the very first day. He said their membership model allows them to offer on-trend fashion and personalized service at a competitive price. He added that it’s easier to make customers happy when companies know who those customers are and what they want.
One of the ways Fabletics is taking on Amazon is by encouraging what’s known as reverse showrooming. This involves building relationships and getting to know the local markets via local events and other activities. The result is up to 50% of people who go to a Fabletics physical store are already members of the Fabletics.
The company also uses online local data, which helps it figure out what items it should stock. Membership preferences, store heat-mapping data and social media sentiment is some of the data the company looks at when deciding what items should be sold in its stores.
There are many positive reviews about Fabletics, with one being on the website The Krazy Coupon Lady. The review mentioned how Fabletics sells trendy athletic apparel and that the first purchase was heavily discounted. The review said Fabletics rivals companies such as Lululemon.
There are also positive reviews on TrustPilot, with some users saying they love the fashions at Fabletics and one user said she was happy with the leggings she bought.
A Foodie Stays Fit reviewed Fabletices and said they were impressed with the styles and you get a lot of value for your money. However, the review did say they were not a huge fan of the website because of shipping times and item availability.
It seems there are a lot of people who love Fabletics. Feel free to visit their website and become a member.
Kim Dao is the most energetic Australian blogger for which we have ever encountered
either on the Internet or in real life. The video for which we have selected for
review is entitled, “My Japanese Apartment Tour!” We were intrigued.
Kim Dao is smart, bright, perky, personable, amiable, well-spoken, an excellent
speaker and does an incredible job on the videos. She narrates them, includes soft,
but hip music in the background (it isn’t overpowering) and includes bits of Japanese
culture as she goes throughout the apartment, explaining where everything is and why
it’s there. She even gives us a quick glimpse of the neighborhood in which she lives.
Kim Dao also employs pop-ups, i.e. towel, kitchen tools, slippers, Pikachu collection,
random stuff, etc. These single or double-worded bits of information make for are
another fun aspect of her videos. Just so that you can keep up with her (she is
seriously like a wind-up doll), there is an arrow accompanying the words to the
topic at hand.
What’s incredible about Kim Dao videos is that they are so well done! There is no
camera shake, random cut off’s or horrible sound errors. We do not begin on the
bedroom window and end up in the laundry area.

Recently, transit experts came together to solve traffic problems in Williamson County. They discussed and provided solutions on traffic matters at an evident organized by Williamson County Growth Summit. The event was held at the county’s Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center. The event also provided the county with a unique opportunity to provide solutions that could result in improvement of traffic in Austin.
Present at the event were invited experts from various transport sector and industries. Some of the experts included Mike Heiligenstein, the executive director of Central Texas Regional Mobility, Joseph Kopser, RiseScout’s Founder, and Leandre Johns, director of Texas External Affairs. Jared Ficklin of Argo Design also attended the summit. The discussion centered on how technology could be used to eliminate the existing challenges facing the transportation sector both in Austin and across the globe.
In his contribution, Heiligenstein elaborated on the potential of using ridesharing apps and embracing driverless vehicles as they have the potential to transform the transportation infrastructure. These technologies reduce the number of cars on the road while also eliminating mistakes that come with human errors. Moreover, he believes that smart roads could provide an additional solution to the problems. Mike hopes that the region would ensure that all their new highways incorporate modern technologies.
Heiligenstein also praised Williamson County for its efforts in improving the infrastructure. The transit expert noted that the county had been involved in several projects in the last 15 years. However, the benefits of these investments have not been visible due to the rapidly growing population of the region. Like other metropolitan, Williamson County receives thousands of new residents every year. This situation puts lots of pressure on the county’s infrastructure. The population problem is also affecting other regions in Austin City. This information was originally published on Biz Journal as outlined in this link http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2016/12/15/transit-experts-offer-solutions-for-williamson.html
Flexible land-use and building codes were also proposed at the summit. According to Ficklin, flexible regulations would allow the city to modify land use and buildings to satisfy the region’s needs. He went on to assert that expansion of roads and buildings of other transport infrastructure would require residential areas to be used. Construction of optimized parking areas and garages for the future cars will need flexible building codes.
