A NO BRAINER! Proposed Body Cameras for NYPD

Screen Shot 2014-08-29 at 10.24.59 AM

I’ve heard this proposal a few times before but YES! This is a no brainer! As much money as we throw away in this country, this would probably be an investment. WE could all put down our camera phones and the police dept. could stop acting like victims about civilians taping what they do. These cameras should stay on every mili-second the officer is on duty. IF they turn off for any reason, that should be recorded by a trusted outside party and the officer should be suspended pending investigation. This could be a small step in the direction of helping the public trust the police again and allowing officers to successfully PROTECT & SERVE.

What do you guys think???

Rumors of plummeting ad sales have been plaguing Lucky magazine for the last few years, causing fashion and media insiders to speculate that it’ll either go all-digital or, well, go out of business. Turns out, it’s not doing either of these things, but big changes are afoot for the 14-year-old shopping glossy. It was announced today that both Lucky magazine and Lucky.com will be spinning off from its parent company Condé Nast and will combine with e-commerce platform BeachMint, creating an entirely new company called The Lucky Group.

If you’re an online shopper, you’re probably be more familiar with BeachMint’s individual properties, including ShoeMint, StyleMint, and JewelMint, which sell affordable fashion and feature a celebrity as the face of the site. According to AdWeek, BeachMint is set to provide technology for a brand-new Lucky online shopping destination launching in early 2015.

Interestingly, Eva Chenwho joined Lucky last year as its buzzy, young, social media-savvy editor…

fashion-rules-to-break50. Red and pink clash.
Somewhere along the way, these two shades got a bad reputation, but when paired purposefully, they can actually look quite modern and eye-catching. To break this fashion rule, keep the red true, and add any shade of pink, from pastel to fuchsia.

49. Don’t wear white after labor day.
Lame! As countless designers have proved during the past few seasons, white isn’t appropriate when the weather gets cold, but also amazingly fresh and modern-feeling. One thing to keep in mind when tackling the white-in-winter trend: It’s all about the fabric. Lighter textiles such as white cotton, linen, canvas, and seersucker will surely look out of place during the chilly months of fall and winter, so be sure you’re reaching for white wool, cashmere, mohair, flannel, silk, and leather.

48. Don’t wear white shoes after labor day.
Another fashion rule to break, as several “It” designers including Céline, Mulberry, Pringle of Scotland consistently showcase white boots, loafers…

#LupitaLovin on the cover of Elle France

The pink and yellow just pop off this beautifully vibrant Elle France cover. It sings a song of confidence, happiness, and endless summer, but all of that still manages to pale in comparison to Lupita Nyong’o’s incredibly gorgeous smile! Is it obvious that I love her? No? I didn’t think so. 😉 lol. I can’t read french but I will most certainly have to pick up this issue!
