On Solid Ground

Lauren Conrad along with her good friend, Hannah Skvarla, accomplished something big with The Little Market today, both Lauren and Hannah opened up their very first brick and mortar store in Pacific Palisades, California, just in time before fall officially began.

This has been a long time coming for the two Little Market co-founders, taking the success of their worldly female artisan online store and making it into a real, physical experience, an even greater chance for female artisans to make a livable wage off the products they make that helps support their families.

The word also got out on Instagram of The Little Market, and LaurenConrad.com of course, reminding folks about the big opening day that was today, of which more than one and a half million followers on both of Lauren’s Instagram accounts combined could not be more excited about.

Lauren and Hannah expressed more excitement with Yahoo today about The Little Market’s new solid store, saying that in order for the customer to appreciate the artisan’s beautiful handmade goods, as well as the female artisan getting lots out of The Little Market, costs are kept down as much as possible.

The Little Market co-founders hope to expand even further down the line, so that female artisans get more of a benefit out of their handmade goods being seen and bought by many, where worldly female artisans can provide for their children, as well as themselves.

Say Hi Other Than Hi

No one would’ve ever thought about a way to welcome a guest into your house other than to say welcome on the doormat, but Lauren Conrad today came up with a creative way of saying hello, thanks to make statements with your stencils.

You simply take a clean, plain, and solid doormat one can buy at Target for example, you also buy a pack of alphabet stencils, black spray paint, painter’s tape, a tape measure, and paper to cut the alphabet stencils over to make your bold, and yet friend powerful welcome statement.

There’s plenty of statements you can make when people come over to your home, like “Shut The Front Door”, “Come Back With Donuts”, “Hi Pumpkin”, or “Baby Sleeping… Be Quiet, or Babysit”, Daniel plus Lauren has some of their own like “Did You Bring Beer?”, “Burgers, Dogs, & Thighs Only”, and “Access Denied If You’re Not Drinking”.

Felix Gray chats up about its computer glasses at AWS Loft

Computer Glasses Are Fun

Felix Gray gave an overview tonight about its computer screen glasses line at the AWS Loft in lower Manhattan here in New York City, starting in a panel of 3 gentlemen with a moderator asking common questions about the Felix Gray line, as well as their business structure.

Felix Gray set itself out on a mission to create computer glasses that did 2 things, one is make computer glasses that are stylish and cool, taking the stigma out of computer glasses where it’s only reserved for geek/ nerds, two is making computer glasses that are not too pricey, where everyone can afford to have cool eyes, and be chic looking at screens all day.

Felix Gray makes their computer glasses to fit 2 types of glasses, one are glasses that are nonprescription, and two are glasses specifically for prescription, it’s all about learning, knowing, and understanding who your consumer is.

Felix Gray glasses are amazingly light weight according to those who tried them on tonight at their display table, and Daniel plus Lauren tried on their lightweight glasses, appreciating not only the coolness of wearing glasses when you don’t need to, but learning that Felix Gray blocks out blue light glare caused by screens, which can damage your pupils, leading to the little things like red eye.

It all begins with guerilla marketing, a sure fire and steady way to make a conclusing about your customer base, learning and discovering real quickly of structure needed to make the business grow, such as realizing you need to raise your limitation to an unlimited status for building your website so you avoid the website crashing when you get to 1,000, as the team of Felix Gray realized early on.

The only way for Felix Gray to realize its success, and knowing what kind of computer glasses to make for those staring at a desktop, laptop, or even your phone all day is to know where the need for Felix Gray comes from, and it’s the office where the need for Felix Gray was born, because people need relief from strained eyes, headaches, and blurry vision, so they’re able to focus better, and be more productive at work.

Felix Gray strives on hiring the right people who not only can run their company the right way for Felix Gray to succeed, but who loves what they do, very passionate about Felix Gray, and has the ability to think through a problem.

Please, Pretty Please

It’s what everybody, including Whitney Port’s begging Lauren Conrad to do, join the reboot that is “The Hills: New Beginnings”, that’s coming to MTV in 2019, The Hollywood Reporter reported Wednesday that Whitney’s on a crusade to do whatever possible to get the girl who made “The Hills” possible to return.

Despite Whitney and the world’s desire to see Lauren Conrad grace MTV again, Whitney says she hasn’t talked to Lauren directly about rejoining “The Hills”, Whitney has had to reach out to friends of Lauren, as well as Lauren’s people to see if Lauren can at least spark some interest.

In the meantime, Whitney’s mission for her reprising role on “The Hills: New Beginnings” is showing the American people that the 33-year-old Whitney is not the same as the 25-year-old Whitney, Whitney’s focus now is her family, as well as being a brand ambassador promoting good health, like with Koia drinks.

Fitted Sheets Are Hard To Fold

As Lauren Conrad also focuses on her businesses and family, Wednesday was a great day to learn the tricks of folding a fitted bed sheet, lay it flat first, fold it in half, and master the trick of tucking each corner of the sheet so many times until impossible so you can fold the fitted sheet once and for all.

Don’t Make A $2,000+ Mistake

Fashion is expensive, so don’t regret breaking the bank with buyer’s remorse, but Team LC today has choice wedges, handbags, and sunglasses worth a broken piggy bank over.

Liu Shuishi presents a retrospective at Chase Contemporary

And Now, A Final Thought

Liu Shuishi went back in time tonight to all of the pieces he’s ever painted in the last decade and a quarter at least at the Chase Comtemporary art gallery in midtown manhattan here in New York City, reflecting a single draft of her paintings.

From recent works such as “I Am Watched” as of this year that have a deeper oil painting enrichment that ever before, to “The Theory Towards Asertainment” back in 2015, or even simple pieces such as “Wedding” back in 2011 or “Ghost” in 2012, Liu Shuishi’s work of art are deemed as final.

In terms of final, final means that in those years the paintings were elaborated, Liu Shuishi settled on a construct that his work and thought put into it were the mere final thought of a partial meaning of life Liu came up with, until Liu had come up with another breakthrough later on.

In concrete print, Liu’s powerful work reflects the artist’s ongoing concern with modernity’s complex reality regarding the isolation and instability of contemporary life, rendering figures with large heads and exaggerated features in highly gestural, bold brushstrokes, Chinese traditional art, and calligraphy art with the thick impasto paint strokes to make Liu’s work rich both in presentation and content.

And with tonight’s exhibit over at Chase Contemporary, Liu Shuishi’s showcases artworks that reflect the artist’s oeuvre since his transition from traditional Chinese landscape painting, to his unique brand of existential expressionism which defines life at any given moment.

Samurai Forever

Inden EST. 1582 caught the eye of Daniel plus Lauren today strolling on the floor of this first day of UBM’s Coterie trade show at the Javits Center here in New York City with their one of a kind handbag and accessories collection like no other.

Inden EST. 1582 in modest terms is a Japanese accessories line doing everything from mirrors, pen pouches, high end purses, and so forth, where it is hand painted, and made of deer skin, cow skin, and high Japanese wood lacquer, but Inden is 436 years of the fighting Samurai warrior based on the accessories used to fight, where it later became a fashion trend in Japanese culture.

Inden EST. 1582 is very protective of how it makes it collection, because it’s a manufacturing method that has lasted for over 400 years, expanding on the Samaurai tradition which provides modern and simple designs with high end bags and wallets with redefined designs to card cases suited for a business environment.

What strengthens the importance of the Inden EST. 1582 collection is that all of its products are virtually life resistant (scratch resistant, water resistant, element resistant, fade resistant, time resistant), putting it in a situation that with good care, an Inden EST. 1582 handbag can last for many years, where even the shine gets better.

Now as the wallets have become a popular seller for Inden EST. 1582, their red medium sized handbags are a top seller to along with anything that’s colored red, and their new offering includes the ring handbag that made with Inden’s iconic dearskin, and accepts the honor of being the lightest handbag one can buy.

Strong is not a justifiable word to classify Inden EST 1582, it’s Samurai fighting accessories philosophy steming over 400 years with its guarded manufacturing process are what officiates the durability, strength, and beauty an Inden EST 1582 product is.
