Social Primer . K. Cooper Ray has taken a fresh take on the age old art of proper manners. In a world where etiquette has fallen to the wayside, Social Primer is a beacon in the darkness as it discusses how to deal with the loud cell phone talker and the rules of shaking hands & chivalry in the modern age. Online forums are an amazing tool; you can ask a very pointed question and have it answered by someone on the other side of the globe within minutes. Novices, amateurs, and experts interact in a colorful conversation that continues as long as the thread that spawned it remains active. However, forums do pose risks to those without a foundation in classic men’s style. There is quite a bit of bad advice out there; a poster with 40 minutes of tailoring experience is given the same pulpit to preach as a tailor with 40 years under his belt. And do not be swayed by those with a large number of posts; look for quality over quantity. My advice? Build a solid foundation in understanding men’s style and take what you read in forums with a grain of salt; look to forums to supplement an education, not to fully sustain one.


summer hair tips


HEALTHY by Kia Sterling Hair is a lifestyle

ummer is finally here! Skinny bikinis, barbecues, and sexy, sultry summer nights are quickly approaching us. Here are your must knows for keeping your hair as beautiful as your tan for your overall summer glam. So let's bring on the heat!

Wash Your Face Last In The Shower. Doing so before washing and conditioning your hair could lead to some zany shampoo particles setting up shop on your face. Avoid that by saving face cleansing for the grand finale.

Don't let your hair drive you crazy. Instead embrace what you've got. Working with your natural texture can be easy and care free on those hot summer days.

r You Hair



Kill two birds with one beauty stone! While relaxing poolside or at the beach, treat your tresses to a deep conditioning mask. Just as your body needs water to survive, your hair must replenish its moisture to stay healthy. After applying your favorite mask comb your hair into a bun and let the heat from the sun help penetrate tresses while you lounge. This is an awesome way to protect your hair from the sun's dangerous UV rays, chlorine and salt while getting your glam tan.

Go Natural

Don't let your hair drive you crazy. Instead embrace what you've got. Working with your natural texture can be easy and care free on those hot summer days. Using a diffuser to dry your hair helps maintain your natural curl pattern. Twisting random sections of hair will give your coif cool natural personality with a low key feel. These beauty rituals will give you a great look that is low maintenance.


Hair gets it's own natural highlights during the summer months. Therefore blondes can become too white or brassy and redheads can quickly fade. You should actually be doing less highlighting and more protecting your hair during the summer by using products formulated with sunscreen. This will keep you highlights and color happy.


MAMi Magazine/ Summer 2014



To make your blowout last longer, sleep with your hair in a high loose ponytail or bun. In the morning take your bun down, shake out and finger style. You'll be amazed at how this quick this easy trick gives your hair voluminous staying power.




Fight Frizz

Ever wonder how some women's hair always looks amazing, even in eighty percent humidity? Well we all know how humidity can turn beautiful curls into a birds nest in minutes. Protect tresses against the frightening summer frizz with products that block against humidity and calm frizz

Weave Works

Eat Beauty

Eating a healthy diet will create the health and shine your hair needs to maintain its beauty factor. Omega-3 fatty acids found in foods such as salmon, spinach, and omega-3 rich eggs should be at the top of your menu as well as the best thirst quencher...water.


Summer time is a time when women love wearing long luxurious beachy waves. To prevent long locks from tangling while swimming, create a braid. The braid will keep your hair in place and you'll still have an amazing summer style.

No More Salt

Before swimming in salt water or chlorine, be sure to add a few drops of neem oil to your hair and brush through making sure the oil is evenly distributed. Afterwards spray tons fresh water into your hair. This helps to limit the saturation of of pool and ocean water. The neem oil acts as a barrier to protect your hair and wetting your down with fresh water protects your hair from absorbing too much of the salt or chlorine water. Your hair can only absorb so much liquid.

EO Eric Ouaknine For 10 years my friend Eric Ouaknine has contributed to MAMi Magazine. We thank you for all your highly professional work!


hotographer Eric Ouaknine possesses a unique style that is redhot, beyond fashionable and completely original. Mainly shooting fashion editorial and advertising campaigns, Eric began his photography career shooting landscapes, model portfolios, and portraits. His exotic ad campaigns and exquisitely styled couture photos are conveyed through his completely original artistic vision. Eric’s personal approach to his business is based on his firm belief in the value of the client relationship. Aiming to deliver more than just an image, his goal is a heightened sculptural sensitivity bringing a responsive awareness to the visual message through the photographic medium. I have had a passion for photography since 2000. When I was young, my father used to paint and gave me love of arts, I started with drawing. Completely self-taught, I learnt all technical aspects in specialized magazines. I began with landscapes and photo-reportage as I lived in the south of France, then I put up a makeshift studio in a cellar to practice the art of portrait, where I photographied all my girlfriends Thanks to more experienced photographers, I created my first studio as a fashion photographer with professionnal equipment in 2001. Then I created a models school and I did a lot of tests to train. I did my first advertising campaign for a famous brand in 2003 and came to Paris in 2004 to start an interna-

tional carreer. I think I have a seething and perfectionist mind, I never give up before to be fully satisfied. I don't draw on my knowledge, I'm not afraid of pushing back my limits and challenging myself. Photography is above all a passion, art always flews in my veins as a vital liquid. I’m drug addictive of beauty and light games. I’m an artist fully living my own dreams and a conductor as well, I try to gather most talented persons in a photo shooting to get the best results. For me, to be a great photographer means to be a great art director first. And I have a great relation with models, make-up artists and hair-dressers as I transmit them my passion and let them drive the photo shooting as they feel it. I find inspiration Mainly in Baroque and Gothic Arts. I love the dramatic atmospheres and critical perspective vacillating between extreme modernity and past remembers. I’m deeply influenced by apocalyptic and visionnary fictions of the 80′s (Mad Max, New York 1999, Terminator, and others) as well as by ultra-realistic comic books like Enki Billal’s. I love to find original and historical locations for my pictures as I can imagine some amazing productions. I build my fashion stories first from clothes and places, and after I choose the models and specify the art direction with all my team.

I think I have a seething and perfectionist mind, I never give up before to be fully satisfied.

Ashieda Cosmetics As women we are always searching for the next best beauty product and for most of us, this search will last a lifetime. Many of us "product junkies" often browse the shelves of our favorite beauty retailer or local spa for that perfect serum, eye cream or moisturizer. I can almost guarantee that most of you have never purchased a product that you can drink....and actually works! With the Ashieda Beauty Nectar, you see results in 3 days. After the third day, I noticed an amazing glow and suppleness in my face. Aside from the changes, I was also pleased with the taste. For those of you who are skeptical about drinking the Beauty Nectar, I recommend using the Ashieda Facial Mask. Unlike your conventional at-home mask, the mask itself is very thick, is saturated with plenty of product and clinically proven to increase moisture & reduce pores. For the low price of $9.99, you get a mask that will instantly plump your fine lines and over time eliminate them completely. Founder, Sarah Ehrlich, revealed that many celebs use the mask before a photo shoot or red carpet event. For more details about the cosmetic line, check out our interview below with Sarah Ehrlich. am How you started in the beauty industry... se I actually grew up in the beauty industry because my mom had a hair salon and I went to cosmetology school in high school because I thought that was what I would end up doing. I ended up getting involved in the real estate business, which is where I met my husband. I started working with him in New York City. My husband has an art company and we traveled overseas. We would buy antiques and bring them back to the U.S. About 15 years ago, I got involved in doing charitable work overseas and got involved with other organizations. Ten years ago I started my charity. About 3 years ago I was at a conference at Yale about social enterprise and how to help by starting a business. Through my travels I found great beauty products in Asia so I liked the idea of starting a business around that. We have a

program in Honduras where we would send the girls to a nursing school or cosmetology school. I have found some special products that are not here in America; all products are clinically studied so that we can prove the benefits. am The beauty nectar long does it take to develop a product like this and how does it benefit your skin? se Basically you will notice a glow within three days. I loved doing the clinical study on this product which lasted 3 months. The skin tone really evens out and you start to have an amazing glow. It's funny because in America we don't generally care about glow; it's not one of our main concerns. However, in Asia it really is. They care about the tone of the skin. This doesn't give an oily lookingshine, it just gives a glow which is really nice and makes one look youthful. After 10 days you start to see the difference in fine lines and true hydration comes in. It's amazing. We worked with a company in Van Nuys, California to develop this product. We came up with our very own formula which took about one year. We got the general formula originally from a company in Asia who we are still working with them.

se One month supply for the Beauty Nectar is $3.00 per bottle. Moisturizer cream is $59.99. Facial mask - $9.99

am Asia seems to be on the front end of the cutting edge of beauty secrets and fashion trends..they seem to have the next best thing...

am Where can our readers purchase the products? se

se This beauty nectar drink has been popular on the market in Asia for over 15 years. It is just a matter of time before people here in the U.S. become aware of this drink. We get hooked once they try it. It is going really well. We also have a moisturizer and a clear skin cleansing sponge; it naturally exfoliates the skin. It ismade from a plant called the Konjac plant which is a root. They eat it as noodles in Korea. The plant has a way of exfoliating your skin, but it is very soft. It has collagen in it, so collagen is put back into the skin and you don't have to use a cleanser with it.


What are the price range for the products?

The products are sold online only right now.

56 MAMi Magazine/ Summer, 2014

Meet my new beauty obsession! This product is phenomenal just like it says on the bottle. I've been in search of the perfect self tanner for years and have been highly disappointed until Vita Liberata walked into my life. It gives a beautiful, natural, sun kissed glow every time, (with no frightening orange skin) your friends will swear you've been on an exotic island for the past week. Easy to apply (just be sure you wear the skin protecting mitt so it won't stain hands) dries instantly, does not stain clothes, and streak free. If your concerned with strange scents interfering with you favorite perfume, have no fear its completely odorless. The mousse formula is light and airy so it doesn't feel heavy on your skin. This amazing tanner even nourishes the skin with marine and organic botanical extracts that allow your tan to last up to four times longer than regular self tanners, even with daily showering or bathing. Usually I don't need to re-apply product for at least 7-10 days, and the fade is very natural. No blotchy botched up alien looking skin, the tanner slowly fades just like a tan you would get while sunning. I use between 1-2 layers depending on how exotic I want to look that day, 1 layer will give you a gorgeous sun kissed look without using tons of product to achieve a glam tan. It's paraben, sulfate and phthalates free so it won't irritate your skin. It also comes in 3 beautiful shades fair, medium and dark that compliments all skin tones. I'm a fan of the medium shade. I always exfoliate my entire body getting rid of the dead skin cells prior to applying tanner. I believe this helps in the smooth application and keeps my tan longer.

LIX 3D Printing Pen


Humans are accustomed to drawing in the air. We gesture with our hands when talking and will try to illustrate charade secrets by "drawing" objects in space. 3D-printing pens takes those gestures, makes them tangible and, in the hands of an artists, beautiful. Recent 3D-printing pens have been cool, but clunky affairs.

59 MAMi Magazine/ Summer 2014

Measuring 6.45 inches long, 0.55 inch in diameter and weighing just 1.23 ounces, the aluminum 3D-printing pen (which also comes in black) really is pen sized. You hold it just like a pen, and plug a 3.5mm-like jack into the base and the other end of your cable into your computer. The juice allows LIX to heat to over 300-degrees Fahrenheit, though the plant-based PLA filament (it can also use the stronger ABS plastic) only needs to heat to 180-degrees to work. That filament is fed in through a hole in the base and emerges as a superheated liquid on the tip so you can start doodling in the air. Unlike 3D printers, there is no program guiding the printing tip. Instead, to create 3D objects, you simply start drawing in the air with the LIX Pen, moving slowly as the melted filament draws out. It cools quickly so that your structure remains rigid. Each filament rod is about 10 centimeters long

and should, according to the company, last for about two minutes of air-drawing. 3D pen printing works for everything from abstract sculpture to fine art and jewelry to Tshirt design. The only limit, it appears, is your skill level and ability to hold and move the pen very, very steadily. LIX co-founder Anton Suvorov, told Mashable the company's 3D-printing pen "has no concurrence on the market," and it should arrive in Kickstarter sometime around April 14, where the company will be taking pre-orders. The starting price, at least for the campaign, will be $139.95. LIX also sells, for $59.95, a ballpoint pen replica of LIX that is nothing more than a regular pen, but why would anyone want that? look good! years to develop.

2012 Tesla Model S The automotive press has unanimously endorsed the model S design as a winner. Any minor blemishes—for example, visibility is not great—can’t undermine the beauty of the Model S design, which succeeded in its mission to make a full-size all electric sedan as attractive as possible.

In awarding its 2013 car of the year honor to the Model S, Automobile magazine editor-in-chief Jean Jennings praised the car’s performance. “The Model S can blow away almost anything,” she said. "The crazy speed builds silently and

the way they should be.

Gender Differences I'm always curious about gender differences when it comes to design. Being a man, I’m particularly on the lookout for styles that appeal to masculine tastes. But basically it’s a means with no end, because it’s impossible — and impractical — to lump all men into a category of style. Everyone is different. But there are some similarities that tend to span the spectrum of what guys want — and that differ from women’s tastes — when it

comes to design. (These similarities are easier to spot with single guys, because the style is unadulterated by another person.) One is the way we talk about and describe design.

“5 Ways to Keep Skin Healthy This Summer”

It's summertime and the living is easy, but this also means the season's harsh sun is beaming down on your skin. When the beach beckons and the pool pulls you in, stay smart and protected with all the right practices for a safe time in the sun. Sunscreen is an obvious choice when at the beach, but when it comes to running errands, it's easy to forget to apply. Have no fear, we've got the best tips to keep your skin radiant no matter where the next few months take you. From exercise regiments to daily diet and exfoliating routines, here are the best ways to achieve healthy, sun-kissed skin!

Vestibulum elit neque elit, vulputate in suscipit eu, et nunc. Sed gravida mi ultricies erat dictum rutrum. J.W.

“Sunscreen is an obvious choice when at the beach, but when it comes to running errands, it's easy to forget to apply ”

1. SunScreen

Even those short walks to lunch or running errands can put you at risk of too much sun exposure. Adding a healthy layer of face protecting sunscreen to your morning beauty routine is a critical don’t-skip-it step. Today’s advanced formulas combine powerful protection with an almost weightless feel so your makeup layers on silky smooth. Look for lotions enhanced with antioxidants for an extra skin-health boost. 2. Protect Your Lips While we never need an excuse to buy a new lipstick, sun protection for your lips means mandatory shopping! Whatever your color choice (we love everything from nude to red hot!), look for lip care with an SPF of at least 15. And consider lip balm vs. gloss for the summer, as balms tend to hydrate more and stay on longer.

help you stay hydrated in the heat. In addition to drinking your daily in-take of water, it’s healthy and smart to indulge in fresh, water rich foods. So go ahead and enjoy watermelon – it’s 91% water!. 4. Facials Daily facials not in the cards? A gentle, daily exfoliating routine is your next best bet in the quest for softer, smoother, clearer skin. Exfoliating scrubs or soft face brushes used with gel and cream cleansers lift and wash away dead skin cells and clean out your pores for that awesome 'facial-effect.' And you can look in your mirror-mirror and know who is the fairest of them all. 5. Protect Ya Neck When life is a day at the beach (or pool), start smart and apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you head outdoors. Ideally, stand in front of your full-length mirror to make sure you don’t miss hardto reach spots like the middle of your back and the back of your legs. Light, misty-sprays provide excellent coverage without the greasy-sticky feel. Confidently covered and perfectly protected, just grab your sunglasses, hat, magazines, and remember to reapply at least every two hours.
