Wen By Chaz Works For Beauty Blogger

Every beauty blogger on knows there is power in their voice. Every good beauty blogger even knows that there reviews come with choices they may or may not be willing to take. These choices may include trying out new products that may have disastrous effects on their hair. I think that’s why I often shy away from being a beauty blogger because I’m not willing to take risks on one of my most prized possessions, my long beautiful and healthy hair. Being a beauty blogger has just never been important enough for me to risk the look of my hair.
Bustle recently had a beauty blogger step up to the plate and try the highly publicized WEN By Chaz. Wen By Chaz is an all in one system that brings 3 products into one great product. Each day the blogger showed photos on twitter of how the hair care system was working on her hair and it gave readers an indepth look at the impact the product was making on their hair.

I have long been a supporter of Chaz Dean; however, I have never been open minded to trying his product unless Chaz himself was going to be putting the products on my hair. I trust his opinion and expertise more than I trust my own.

At the end of this blogger’s challenge she did encourage the use of Chaz by Wen but only for specific kinds of hair. Find out which one she thinks would work best here Your text to link…

What does George Soros say about the E.U.? In danger? Yes!

This is a brief recap of articles published in CNBC by George Soros.

Is the European Union in mortal danger of collapse? With the current refugee problem in Europe and an unfolding humanitarian crisis in Greece, Mr. Soros says it is. George Soros a wealthy financier insists that to avoid this, the European Union must agree to a massive cash injection to fix the refugee crisis once and for all. He is quoted saying “Legitimate refugees must be offered a reasonable chance to reach their destinations in Europe” and confirms that the asylum seekers are now desperate.

He states that leaders of the European Union will need to get on board with the idea of surge funding and not continue to just scrape together enough each year through mandatory quotas on which most are not in agreement with anyway. A large amount of funds will need to be invested in this endeavor to help alleviate the problem.

In 2015 alone over a million migrants and refugees left the Middle East and Africa to Europe in trying to escape civil war and in search of a better life. Unfortunately at this point a deal is in place making it so anyone arriving illegally to Greece will be automatically turned back to Turkey if their application for asylum is turned down.

In an essay Mr. George Soros says Europe should be able to handle from 300,000 to 500,000 refugees a year. By doing this it would not overload Europe with migrants and would give hope to those seeking asylum legitimately. The financier calculates that at least $34 billion dollars or $30 billion Euros a year will be needed to make this plan work.

He urges Europe to understand that even though this seems like a large amount, not doing this will cost the European Union even more and could cause the collapse of the Union of twenty six European states.

Mr. George Soros was born in Budapest from Hungarian/Jewish ancestry, he holds dual citizenship and is an American magnate, investor and well know philanthropist. George Soros is currently the chairman of Soros Fund management and a leading supporter of democratic beliefs and causes and has been for decades. The Open Society Foundation, which is his, is helping in over 100 countries at this time.

The investor/philanthropist has suggested that EuropeÕs long term spending plan or the European Commission’s Multiannual Financial Framework be amended to increase VAT contributions on, and this will help with any ongoing funding. But even then surge funding is desperately needed. Mr. George Soros mentioned that the EFSF or European Financial Stabilization Mechanism and the Balance of Payments Assistance Facility have $68 billion USD (60 Billion Euros) of available funding which should be used now for this project.

Bonds have been issued by many countries throughout history to help with national emergencies and that is what Europe is facing today with the migrant and refugee crisis, an emergency. It is time to mobilize the triple-A credit of the European Union right now to fix this situation and save the European Union as we know it, says Billionaire George Soros.

Winter Fundraising Campaign That Will Benefit Homeless Animals

Many New York City professionals, including attorneys, are looking for ways to give back to the community. They are in a special position to raise awareness about different causes and to help as many people get on board with them. Many causes benefit others and even animals in a wide variety of ways. For example, in mid-January 2016, a New York City attorney launched a campaign that will benefit stray animals in the New York City area. Ross Abelow is well known New York City attorney who has more than 25 years of experience working on family law cases. He would like to raise $5,000.

Individuals who are interested in helping Ross Abelow collect $5,000 can donate money through the Go Fund Me page that has been set up in order to help animals that are suffering during these cold winter months. Individuals can make donations of any size. Once $5,000 has been collected, the money can go to shelters and benefit the animals. Unfortunately, many New York City animal shelters are facing problems that are causing them to turn away strays when they are in serious need of help.

Animal shelters in New York City and in other big cities in the United States are facing similar problems. First, they simply do not have space available to take care of needy animals. Second, they do not have cash to purchase necessary things like food and medicine for the animals. When there are enough funds on hand, these problems can be taken care of. Also, animals benefit in other ways. For example, they are able to visit veterinarians in order to get vaccinations or to be spayed and neutered. Also, they are usually put in adoption programs that ensure that they will never have to live on the streets again.

Many individuals have benefited from the counsel that Ross Abelow has provided working as a family law attorney. Also, individuals who are not even his clients have been able to benefit from his advice. He maintains a blog that addresses of variety of legal and financial issues. He is also active on a variety of social media sites. He regularly posts information to his Twitter and Facebook pages that help followers to stay up-to-date on legal matters and other issues.

If everyone gets on board and donates even just a small amount of money to the winter fundraiser launched by Ross Abelow, it will not be long before suffering animals are able to get the care they need.

Igor Cornelsen Knows The World’s Markets

In the last few decades, I think it has become increasingly apparent that you need to invest in the market in some way. We all have to save money to have a good retirement. What better way to really save money than to invest in funds that you know are likely to yield an impressive rate of return? Someone who fully understands this process is a good friend of mine. Igor Cornelsen is a native of the nation of Brazil where I grew up. I came to the United States much like he did in search of the chance to make my own future here. Since that time, I have returned to my home nation many times to visit friends and relatives.

A Booming Economy

As so many others have found, I’ve also found that this part of the world is doing amazingly well fiscally. This part of the world is thriving both in anticipation of the coming Olympics and because so many Brazilians have turned to the field of business. It took conversations with Igor Cornelsen to help me become aware of this fact and start to think about the ways that I could choose to capitalize on it. Like Cornelsen, I speak, read and write fluent Portuguese. This has helped me learn to read the financial newspapers in this part of the world in order to keep up with the world of finance and industry. Igor Cornelsen has helped ignite a passion in me to learn as much as I can about the markets in this part of the world. Every time I go back here, I see what he’s talking about. He understands that this is a marvelous place for investors to look for possible investments of all kinds. I was not aware of just how the area is flourishing until I began to pay close attention to his advice and listen to what he had to tell me about being a part of this world.

So Many Benefits!

Investing in Brazil has many benefits. This part of the world makes it very easy to travel to other nations such as Argentina and Uruguay that are right next door to it. I have seen so many of my fellow Latin Americans follow his advice and invest here. They know, as he does, that this nation is likely to see continued growth in the future as so many choose to follow him. Like others, I have been pleased to note just how far and how fast my own portfolio of investments has managed to grow. I am now seeing the results of listening to his disqus lectures and learning about his insights into the market in this part of the world.

Food for Fido Goes Gourmet

The old saying about a dog being man’s best friends goes well beyond Fido having a place to sleep on his master’s bed at night. More Americans are becoming concerned with the quality of the food available on Amazon for their pets. Gone are the days of purchasing any dog food for the family pet. Now careful consideration is given by the pet food manufacturer and the pet owner about the ingredients in dog food. It has become critically important for pet owners to take better care of their animals in hopes of a longer life. As reported by The Daily Herald (insert link), gourmet pet food is becoming a newly competitive market.

Many companies have arrived on the enormous pet food scene hoping to cash in on the new movement of gourmet foods. Companies like Purina have long been in the business of making quality dog and cat foods, but have created a new line of food they call Beneful. As the name suggests Beneful is not only nutritious, but the product is loved by millions of pets nationally.

Not only does Purina’s Beneful provide a variety of high-quality products for pet owners, their employees use the product which is one of the highest endorsements of a product available. The product is made with pride, shipped locally which means consumers purchase a freshly made product at the height of freshness. Purina Beneful takes extra steps to ensure the highest quality of ingredients, offers a full range of feed depending on your pets needs including puppy and weight loss formulas. Beneful has marked a place in the gourmet pet food arena as being the leader with a quality product.


Helane Morrison’s Positve Impact on the Financial Sector

Helane Morrison who started off as a journalist has over time proved herself to be of great capabilities. She is currently involved in government service. Not many can maintain and stand for their ethical integrity after a long time of working in different capacities. Always doing the right thing is a narrow path that many don’t choose to follow except for one Helane Morrison. Since the early years of the millennium, the business world particularly the finance sector, has undergone several setbacks and has spoiled its reputation. Helane however has managed to stay true to who she is despite all this. Her fight against corruption and zeal to protect those who are vulnerable has over the years and still is her best known trait. It is encouraging to know that there is one person who still of integrity especially after the financial crisis in 2007/2008 where the unethical behaviour in the financial sector was exposed.

After the malpractices in the financial sector were exposed, everyone is uncertain and weary to trust others, especially those operating in the financial sector. Americans especially have little trust or no faith at all in Wall Street with only twenty percent of them believing that their country’s economy is headed on the right path. This is a matter of concern especially because the presidential elections are around the corner. This is so according to Yale Hirsch’s theory of there being a direct correlation between the elections and its impact on stock markets and the economy. Despite the uncertainties, people are still investing due to the unavoidable financial necessities. Since the average investor is at high risk and quite vulnerable, some have resorted to educate themselves and familiarise with some expertise. To ensure that this happens, there is need to have a watchdog that will ensure people follow the put in place trading regulations and security laws.

Having a great work and life balance and adding to the fact that she is committed to ensure that justice prevails, Helane Morrison is a great encouragement to the fact that there is hope in the financial sector. The government noticed her exceptional qualities and gave her a post as head of the San Francisco Office of the U.S SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) where she worked till 2007. She is currently the Managing Director Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel of Hall Capital Partners LLC. Helane’s knowledge of the law has undeniably played a big role to ensure she is where she is currently as is seen in the website link She studied journalism initially at Northwestern University before she earned a J.D in Law from the University of California, School of Law at Berkeley. She has worked as a court clerk at the U.S Supreme Court and Court of Appeals as well as done private practice at the Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Falk, Canady & Rabkin firm.

Cleansing Cream versus Fine Hair

Fine hair can present a specific set of challenges: fly-away, frizzy and too easily weighed down by conditioning products. In a recent article for one salon worker describes her personal seven day experience with WEN hair products by Chaz.

Used by Hollywood stars and millions of other women around the world, Wen hair by Chaz Dean has become a cleansing phenomenon. The Wen hair original Sweet Almond Mint cleansing conditioner has grown into hair treatment options in a variety of scents (Fig, Cucumber Aloe, Lavender, Pomegranate) as well as styling products and hair treatments are all available on Sephora. Regardless of hair type, Wen has the fix by starting with the basic idea of not stripping hair to cleanse it. Wen uses hair-friendly ingredients and no harsh sulfates.

Emily McClure put herself on a seven day challenge with WEN Hair, which she documented with photos and daily diary of use. Rather than a typical one-and-done trial, the scope of this article allowed Emily time to fit Wen hair in her daily routine in the usual ways – night hair washes, morning cleanses – as well as variations on those options. Starting on the first day, Emily noticed shinier and healthier looking hair; by day six, even her friends commented on her shiny hair. For best personal results, Emily found a morning shampoo to be the best option. In the end of her Bustle article, Emily concluded Wen would be the shampoo she reached for when she wanted a little extra shine.


Doe Deere Leader of a Style Revolution

In a recent article published by Bustle, Marlen Komar discussed the impact Doe Deere and her cosmetic line, Lime Crime, is having on popular culture.

Doe Deere is a counter-culture fashion icon. Deere is blessed with the good looks of a Katy Perry remodeled as a pop culture figure. She presents her counter-cultural ideas to the targeted teen-aged consumer with her cosmetics line, and herself as a newly popular personality in the style of Madonna, who has profited from her brand as a representative of the popular culture. Deere is attempting to create a brand based on herself first and then her product line, Lime Crime. She is a compelling personality, attractive and making profound style statements, which are reminiscent of Lady Gaga and before her Marilyn Manson and the late David Bowie.

In the article Deere listed seven fashion rules which she liked to violate. One of the fashion laws stated that either a dramatic make-up statement should be made for the eye or mouth but not both. Deere disregards this as well as the one that states a profusion of different patterns should not be worn together. In Doe Deere’s world there can never be enough differences of patterns combined or an unsightly combination of colors. Open toed shoes combined with socks works for her also. Dress for your age? Forget that one. On the matter of occasion specific clothing she sees no need for that. What would she wear to a funeral? Scary thought.

The fashion world is shaped by designers from the major style houses in Europe and by popular figures in culture, athletes, actors and singers, but then there are the “celebrities”, the Kardashians are a good example, these “celebrities” walk a thin line between being fashionable without being too avant garde or being too established. Mix all these disparate elements together in the world’s fashion blender and see what you create. Today there is no ultimate fashion director. Yves St. Laurent may have been the last designer whose influence had an impact on all aspects of culture. Ralph Lauren can make a case for his own efforts as a chief impact-er on the fashion world, but the diversity of today denies any strict adherence to an established fashion sense.

Doe Deere is trying to build a brand for herself and for her cosmetics line, Lime Crime. Her personal style is refreshing and built on ideas of going against the grain. But, unfortunately, the fashion sense of the typical American established man or woman is lacking when compared to citizens from European countries. An innate sense of style for Americans is, sadly, lacking. While counter-culturalists for teenagers are in vogue, when these youths reach adulthood the more stringent rules of fashion and decorum will take over, setting laws of fashion that can not be broken in the corporate business world. Artists have been, largely, exempted from these rules but anyone who profits from an established brand will pay attention to the limits placed on fashion; limits that Doe Deere is happy to break.


Doe Deere Commands Respect

Lime Crime founder, Doe Deere, commands respect because she is not afraid to defy traditional makeup rules. She is able to rock the boldest makeup colors with her marvelous pastel colored hair. Some might think that the pastel haired beauty would try to subdue her look with neutral colored makeup and clothing. Doe Deere thinks the exact opposite is appropriate for her and her unicorn followers. Her view is that bold colors are more becoming. Doe Deere looks tradition in the eye and is not afraid to go against common rules about wearing colors or makeup. Definitely, her belief is that more is more appealing.

Fashion Rule Breaker
Doe Deere believes that every year fashion experts set down a few rules that everyone follows. For example, they might state that this is the year to wear neutral colors like white, black, gray, tan, or even brown. Certainly, following the rules is alright, if you are puzzled about fashion, makeup, and colors in general. She believes that everyone needs to learn the basic rules about makeup and fashion. Only those that understand the basic fashion and makeup rules are able to break them with style. Certainly, Doe Deere is one very creative person that loves playing around with wild colors and unique patterns. Her sound advice for women is to be bold, break the rules. Following the rules is just far too boring. Certainly, the founder of Lime Crime has a very unique approach to makeup and fashion that has encouraged her league of unicorn followers to think creatively.

Lime Crime Executive Doe Deere
The Lime Crime Executive, Doe Deere, has a very original approach to managing her business. Some executives rule their company with an iron fist. She believes that this drives a wedge between the leader and their support team. She believes that gaining the trust and respect of her employees is the way to lead a company to success. She likes to inspire her team with encouragement and plenty of reinforcements. Certainly, this leadership style delivered impressive results for the successful executive.

Lime Crime has been around since 2008. Deere manages the cosmetic company with her husband, Mark. They’ve been together for a long time. In fact, they started out in a rock band about 16 years ago. Deere credits her husband with inspiring her to go for her dream, concerning starting a makeup company. Certainly, he is her rock and her inspiration.
