What Is the Best Non-Prescription Eyelash Enhancer?

Eyelash enhancers are the latest beauty trend, giving almost anyone the kind of long, beautiful lashes you only see on supermodels. Unlike false eyelashes that are laid on the eyelid, this increasingly popular method allows you to topically apply a serum to the base of your lower and upper lashes. This formula encourages the growth of longer, fuller, and darker-looking lashes without the fuss of mascara, and can even be used on sparse, thin eyebrows.

The downside? Prescription eyelash enhancers are often expensive and formulated with prostaglandin, a hormone that can cause side effects such as darkened irises (potentially irreversible) and blurred vision. No one wants to risk that, so more and more companies are developing safer, non-prescription alternatives that deliver impressive results.

NuOrganics Eyelash Serum from NuOrganics is by far the most popular of this variety. Responsibly sourced and free of harmful chemicals like parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oils, and SLS, this natural formulation helps thicken, lengthen, darken and condition eyelashes.

And best of all? Fans report seeing results in as little as 14 days without any side effects.

How It Works

NuOrganics is an innovative cosmetics company focused on finding natural beauty solutions. For eyelash enhancement, they created a plant-based stem cell serum that achieves great results without using the risky chemical compounds found in other products.

Among the active ingredients in NuOrganics Eyelash Serum is a Swiss apple stem cell culture extract. This is rich in phytonutrients and proteins, encouraging your hair to grow thicker and longer as well as cultivating healthy hair follicles. There’s also super peptide Myristoyl Pentapeptide-16 and Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, which clinical trials have shown to increase lash thickness and length by 25% in two weeks, and produce an impressive 66% increase in lash length and density in just 28 days.

Add in Biotinyl-GHK, a conditioning agent to protect and repair hair as well as help keep the hair rooted in the follicle, and an Ayurveda therapy to reduce inflammation, free radicals and glycation, and you’ve got one of the most powerful eyelash enhancers on the market today.

Read the Reviews

You can read reviews on NuOrganics Eyelash Serum and see what real customers are saying about it on the NuOrganics website. In as little as two to eight weeks, you can be seeing the supermodel results you’ve dreamed of.

Jewelry Your Wife Actually Wants

Hello, my name is Natasha and I am the founder of Natasha’s World Jewelry based in Reno, NV. My passion for jewelry began as a young girl growing up on the shores of Hawaii, collecting and selling puka shell necklaces on the sun washed beaches of Waikiki. I have traveled across the globe in pursuit of the world’s most beautiful jewelry, from the exotic rain forests of Thailand and Bali to the ancient architectures of Spain and Ireland.

My journeys have led me to discover hundreds of international artists specializing in handcrafted necklaces, bracelets, rings, pendants, and other unique body adornments.

Natasha Bayt photographed by Clayton Beck Creative, wearing Isha Elafi designs made in Bali, Indonesia.

My greatest joy is bringing the best of these pieces back to my shop to share with my customers. There is no better feeling than the moment that someone connects with a special piece in my shop. I love to give the gift of the jewelry’s origin and intention, and then hear the stories of romance and adventure that the wearer goes on to create. I have been fortunate to make countless friends in my various stores, from my first shop in Honolulu, to endeavors in San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, and now my newest homestead at the base of the beautiful Sierra Mountains in Reno, NV.

You Won’t Believe The Story Behind This Shot!

Just as a great wine starts with great grapes, an incredible photo shoot often begins with an amazing dress.

“I had been wandering the district of Los Angeles when I came across this beautiful woven fabric,” said designer and photographer Clayton Beck. “It caught my attention because at first glance it almost looked as if the flowers had been painted on.”

25 yards of cloth and dozens of hours later, Clayton Beck had created a striking floor length gown unlike anything he had designed before. The simple silhouette still managed to have the striking quality that the designer has become known for across the world, while maintaining the softer grace of a more traditional ball gown. Then, almost as if the dress had conjured it’s own photo shoot, the phone rang.

“I got a call from a model asking if I had ever done a photo shoot at a winery or vineyard,” Clayton Beck said. “I told her that I had never done a shoot like that before, but I had the perfect dress for the occasion!”

Clayton and his model Chelsea traveled to Miraflores Winery in Placerville, CA to infuse the fashion with the elegance of a Mediterranean-inspired vineyard. Combining the California country side, delicious wine, and debonair model with his hand-made clothing, the final result conjures a feeling that is both romantic and timeless.

Eco-Friendly Bikinis For The Fashion Forward

Reduce Harm. Increase Benefit.

A blueprint for the new age of Conscious Capitalism: Ethical, Eco Friendly  and HARM-LESS  by Jillian Ann of RITUAL

Natural and eco friendly materials
RITUAL uses natural and eco friendly materials whenever possible not only because they feel luxurious and comfortable, but also because of the reduced global impact they have on the planet.

For our fabric garments, we use Lenzing Modal, a sustainable, carbon neutral fabric. Lenzing modal is made from Beechwood trees where up to 95% of processing chemicals are recovered during production. Beechwood grows extremely fast and requires much less water than even other eco-fabrics such as organic cotton and bamboo. The trees are harvested sustainably and environmental impact is offset with solar power and other techniques in the factory.

Lenzing also employs a unique process whereby the color is embedded directly in the fiber matrix. Resources, such as water and energy, are spared when producing fabrics. Tests prove that processing Lenzing Modal® COLOR requires up to 80% less energy and saves up to 75% of water (in jet dyeing)* in comparison to standard fibers. This is incredible because, in even the most eco-friendly fabrics, the dying process can be extremely toxic. 

For our leather garments, We use goat and sheep leather that is the bi-product of the meat industry in Java, where goats are a staple part of the diet. This means the animals were killed for food and the leftover skin was turned into a beautiful jacket instead of being wasted. This feels better to us than using rabbit or other exotic animals that were killed exclusively for their hide or fur. While some might argue that leather alternatives may be more ecological, we feel that using petroleum-based materials such as fake fur and pleather (which are not natural or comfortable and will fall apart and live forever in a landfill) is far worse due to the overall state of our planet and particularly our dependence on petroleum. 

Long life cycle/ short death cycle

When we speak of the life cycle of the product we mean the entire process from inception to disposal. This can be the manufacturing process of the product, the transportation and delivery of the product and the life it has with the owner of the product before it must be discarded or disposed of. The death cycle is the length of time it takes for that product to decompose and return to a natural state integrated back into the eco-system.

In our current corporate culture, most fashion products have an extremely short life cycle and a death cycle of eternity which, from an outside perspective, must look like an insane, horrific joke. From the poor construction caused by underpaid and overworked tailors kept to an inhumane production schedule, to using the cheapest, plastic (petroleum) based materials that fall apart quickly but never biodegrade, we are reaching an epidemic of consume/dispose which will/is leaving our planet ravaged and toxic and its peoples trapped in a cycle of virtual slave labor.  

Its time for a new perspective on the value of the products we consume.Fashion is not cheap. Just because it was cheap to buy in the first world, does not mean there isn’t a true cost hidden in its production.  From the cost of the virtual slave labor to the damage done to third world environments, if we don’t pay, someone else surely is. 

Our solution is to find the most durable, natural materials which have all the strength to last a lifetime of wear but will return to the earth when finally laid to rest.  By following these guidelines of the longest life cycle as possible and the shortest death cycle as possible, the choices we make in terms of quality and material become very, very clear. We work with our artisanal tailors to focus on quality over quantity and make each garment with the utmost care to last and last. We offer a lifetime guarantee on all leather garments to extend the life of the garment as long as possible.

One of the ways we are reducing the waste associated with our company is by offering a zero waste exchange policy for all customers. If you are finished wearing one of our designs and it is still in good condition we will buy it back fro a percentage of store credit and resell the garment at a reduced rate to someone who will love it again.

Fair, living wages
Today’s garment workers are living in extreme poverty never making enough to survive but forced to continue due to lack of alternatives. We all deserve an honest living doing something we care about and are proud of wherever we live in the world. We are committed to paying a fair, living wage and treating our tailors with respect. Constructing garments is an art form and these people are artists. They deserve our respect and honor for creating the beautiful things that we get to wear.

People over profits
Ritual is committed to doing no harm to people. Our workers must be safe. Our customers must be safe in our garments. Our neighbors must be protected. No amount of profit is worth causing harm to the very people we profess to serve. The point of business MUST be to make a difference for the good of all. We have high hopes for the future and are constantly looking for ways to expand and crystalize our commitment to being HARM-LESS .

7 Ways to Have Your Identity Stolen

When one hears the term “Identity Theft,” they usually think about criminals racking up thousands of dollars in bogus charges on their stolen credit or ATM card.

While this type of fraud is common, there are several other types of identity theft as well, and they could be happening to you right now, including:

  1.  Insurance – Someone uses your Social Security number to obtain the insurance they need, such as home, automotive, etc.
  2. Medical – Someone uses your health insurance to get treatment, costing you money while placing incorrect and potentially harmful information in your medical records.
  3. Criminal – A person gets arrested and is able to believably claim that they’re you. Then they jump bail, and the cops are hunting for you.
  4. Driver’s License – Someone steals your license and makes a duplicate with their image.
  5. Social Security – This gives thieves open control of your life, including buying houses in your name and then defaulting on the loans.
  6. Synthetic – A person uses information from numerous victims, creating a new bogus identity; this makes it extremely difficult to figure out what’s going on and how many victims are involved.
  7. Child – Most children have Social Security numbers, but we seldom check to see if they have a credit file. That means criminals can use their identity for years and never be caught.

Many of us now keep multiple credit cards, bank accounts and loans – meaning there is more and more for criminals to work with.  For many people, it’s not a question of if – but rather when their identity will be stolen.

Little wonder then, that more and more people are starting to get identity theft protection. The leader in this field is LifeLock Inc.

LifeLock has been helping protect people from many types of identity theft for more than 8 years.  LifeLock standard identity theft protection monitors your personal information and alerts you when they detect someone attempting to open a new credit line in your name,† or if your information is being sold on a black market website.

LifeLock also offers a more robust protection service, LifeLock Ultimate™, adding features that protect you against more insidious forms of identity theft. It also monitors public databases for your personal information, so you know where it’s being used. Plus, they scan online court records in case arrested criminals attempt to use your identity.

LifeLock Ultimate provides alerts when new checking and savings accounts are opened using your personal information, and when they detect contact information changes on existing accounts.†

And when you suspect identity theft, nothing is worse than being told you have to call back during “normal business hours” to get anything accomplished. All LifeLock members can speak with a real human, standing by 24/7/365 to assist.

How It Works
In less than three minutes, you can be on your way to protecting yourself from many forms of identity theft.

Just Visit LifeLock, fill in your basic information, and their robust monitoring technology and tools get to work immediately.  You can also add as many family members as you want to ensure that everyone is protected.

The site’s dashboard gives you a snapshot of the pertinent information you’ll want to know—all your alerts and information, plus with LifeLock Ultimate, you’ll see your current credit score, annual reports and more. Simply give them an email address or mobile number so that LifeLock can alert you when there’s suspicious activity.

When it comes to identity theft, the world is becoming more and more scary.  While it’s impossible to stop all criminals, programs such as LifeLock Ultimate can alert you when it happens to you, helping you protect your identity in the most comprehensive way possible.

Where the Good Jobs Are and How to Get Them

While the overall economy may be bad, the truth is, there are certain types of jobs that are in huge demand, and for which there is a severe shortage of skilled workers.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has identified a number of professions expected to experience above-average growth over the next decade. Most of these positions fall within the top 25 percent of earnings for workers overall, and most require a bachelor’s or technical degree.

These in-demand jobs include medical information administrators and other skilled health care workers, web programmers and designers, accountants and financial administrators, to name just a few.

But how do you become eligible for a job in one of these fields if your work experience or degree is in a completely unrelated field.  What if you don’t have a degree at all?  For most us, family, financial and other obligations mean we cant go back to college for a traditional degree.

One of the most best options for people looking to land a job in these fast growing fields is to get a Specialized Online Degree.

Why an online degree?

Flexibility – Online degrees allow you to complete the required coursework from home as you have the time. Be it in the morning before work, at night before bed, or even on your lunch breaks, being able to bring the classroom to you allows you to learn when and where you can, on your schedule.

Financial Aid and Tuition Assistance – Many online degree programs provide tuition assistance and will help you get financial aid to help offset the costs of the program.

Ability to Specialize – Online degrees offer specialized training in a wide variety of fields that are in high demand by employers. With these skills, your chances of quickly landing a job are greatly increased.

Today there are many, many options for getting an online degree.  The process of choosing the right program can be daunting. Fortunately, a new free service from a company called NextAdvisor has been designed to help you do just that.

NextAdvisor has created an easy to use web site where you can quickly research a wide range of Online Degrees. It gives you the facts about costs, degree offerings, job placement help, time commitments, faculty and other important information you need before choosing the right program for you.

While there aren’t many safe investments on today’s market, training and a degree in a growing field is a safe bet. A degree can open up all kinds of doors for greater earning power, better hours, and a better quality of life. And, if you want to find the best program for you, NextAdvisor is the place to start.
