The car industry is devastating to the planet in many ways, from the resources required to manufacture a vehicle to the carbon and toxic fumes that vehicle spews once it’s on the road. The industry is fairly efficient at recovering metals and rubber from scrapped cars

Best Buys From Wilko’s Body Collection England Beauty Range

When someone mentions Wilko, the words “cruelty-free beauty buys” probably don’t spring to mind initially. However, Wilko’s new vegan beauty brand, stocked exclusively at the retailer, may just be up to the job. Body Collection England is being sold exclusively at the store (as well as on its own website), both in store and online, and it sounds verrry intriguing.

First off, the price point is certainly something to get excited about. Products start at just £1, and nothing is more than £10. Not only are the prices appealing, but the formulas are too, given that everything is both vegan and cruelty-free.

The range is full of everything you’d need to re-vamp your makeup collection, from face bits to lips and eyes. There are some great eyeshadow palettes for delightfully low prices, along with pretty liquid lipsticks, highlighters, and a tinted moisturiser that is selling for just £4. Yep, a

Marla Aaron Evolves Her Utilitarian Approach to Fun And Essential Fine Jewelry In Her Newest Collection

I have interviewed many designers and listened when they spoke about their inspiration.  Although there have been may jewelers who cite industrial influences, Marla Aaron locked down the look with her first design directly cast from a hardware store carabiner  (a hook that mountaineers use to fasten one rope to another). Marla explains, “When I realized I could morph this simple shape into different silhouettes and sizes, I realized that other women would want them too.” This is the time, Marla didn’t realize would be an understatement. Marla developed a cult following with women who ‘wanted’, coveted and eventually bough them in a variety of incarnations.

Unless you have been living where there is no internet, phone, or mode of communication with the outside world, you will have heard of Marla Aaron and her original take on the her ever expanding utilitarian objects

Jessica Rothe’s Jewelry Collection Has So Much Sentimental Value

One thing we love about our Precious Metals series is learning the special stories behind each star or tastemaker’s jewelry pieces. It’s like getting a glimpse into their souls. Our latest guest for this accessory show-and-tell is Jessica Rothe, who you’ll know from Amazon’s Utopia or the film Happy Death Day.

The actress, who describes her personal jewelry style as minimalist and delicate, first shares the meaning behind her engagement ring: “This ring belonged to my mother’s mother. Whenever I see this ring or put it on, I remember her and I remember how she made me feel. I feel so lucky that I inherited this ring and I can’t wait for the day when I get to pass it down to my daughter or granddaughter, and to share that history with them.” Rothe recently married to her longtime love Eric Clem in a small, intimate ceremony after COVID-19

Stampd Launches First Women’s Collection

Chris Stamp can’t remember the last time he hadn’t traveled to New York City in a year.

The Stampd founder and creative director, like everyone in the fashion industry, had to shift gears due to COVID-19, including closing the Stampd store on La Brea in Los Angeles and working remotely.

Though the store remains closed and is set to reopen with an appointment-only service in late fall, Stamp and his team continued to produce special online drops, such as the Wave Force and the Night Wave Force sneakers, collaborations with Ugg and One Thousand Museum and the brand’s first and highly anticipated women’s collection.

Stamp has always been interested in the women’s market and has previously released a few pieces for women, but this collection is the brand’s largest to date.

The eight-piece collection pulls from the DNA of the men’s offering and consists of three T-shirts; two sweaters; an
