Beauty Editor Picks This summer season there are two trends that are as hot as summer itself. The natural look is in and that can get a few women a little worried. In order to get that beautiful natural look you need to start with great skin. So here are some tips to get your skin ready for a more natural makeup look.


The first step is both moisturize and protect and since BabyGanics is made for a babies skin it is very gental and does not make you break out. BabyGenics is pure mineral 30+SPF lotion provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and even moisturizes as it protects. So go ahead and use it everywhere face and body

2. Revitalize Lips provide a protective barrier against damaging sun exposure, pollutants and premature aging. This intense treatment contains a combination of vitamins, antioxidants and a Varity of organically grown mushrooms. Together they perform ultimate protection against harmful everyday damage.

3. Foundation that covers and protects. Micro-Corrector Applicator micro-fills and smoothes imperfections on skin's surface. Super-concentrated formula with Goji berry and collagen reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. SPF 18 sunscreen helps protect skin from sun damage.The Eraser is protected with an anti-microbial system. To clean the applicator, wipe off excess foundation with dry tissue only. Do not wet applicator.


By: Alexandra Hollen Get ready for fun in the sun and sand with this summer-worthy makeup trend. It’s all about Retro and there’s nothing natural about it!

Zac Posen


Retro Glamour If you are more of a retro girl, then prepare to rejoice in the nostalgia this summer, for the cat eye has made a comeback. The fierce feline look was in full force on the runways of Christian Dior, and Jean Paul Gautier, who paired the winged look with a rosy gold wash of shadow and plump red lips. The ladies of Zac Posen looked like they were straight out of the 1920’s with smooth, powdered skin, stained retro lips, and waves even Veronica Lake would be envious of. Perhaps the release of movies such as The Great Gatsby served as inspiration, because I left feeling transported to the time of flappers, glamour, and opulence. 23

5. Neon, Nude, and Heavy Metals Let loose this summer and experiment with color. Whether you are a fan of the “natural look,” or feel like going heavy metal, this season the runways had a little bit of something for everyone. Fendi made quite a statement with full on gold lead leafs on the lids of one model; however you might want to save that one for a special occasion! There was a much more user-friendly version of a golden metallic smoky eye at Emilio Pucci. For a more minimalist look, designers like Stella McCartney and Missoni, opted for the fresh-faced look, perfect for a day at the beach. To achieve your own version of this look, look for a brightening concealer to even out your skin tone and take a cue from Givenchy, where they paired glowing skin with loos flowing locks. Other designers went for a pop of color on their runways. Vivienne Westwood

Red Label created their own ‘neon nymphs,’ with neon green and yellow shadows encompassing the models’ eyes. For something that can more easily translate to everyday, look to the runways of designers like Paul Costelle, who had a pop of cool aqua on the eyes, and Moschino, who opted for purple and lilac tones. If you dare to wear the bright colors of summer, you can get every look combination listed here with Revlon from the perfect skin tine to the pop of color and even that retro glam look at a fraction of the costs and the products are made in America. So have fun with it and go for a look that will make you feel amazing.



Bold Eyebrows This summer, thin is out, well for eyebrows at least. Celebs such as Camilla Belle, Demi Lovato, and Lily Collins have put down the tweezers in order to embrace a more naturally full brow look. Bold brows made a big statement on runways, with stylists spending much more time building up brows reminiscent of icons such as Twiggy and Brooke Shields. Fuller brows not only frame your face, but can also give a more youthful appearance. They also require less waxing and plucking, but are not completely maintenance-free. Be sure to still groom them and get rid of any stray hairs. The goal is to look more Rooney Mara natural, not like Chewbacca! Also make sure that if you do decide to go for the bold with the brows, keep the rest of your makeup minimal so your other features aren’t competing for attention.

Dare to get expressive with your brows: Unique natural wax formula, with subtle color pigments, creates hair-like fine lines. Feather through brows with the refined groomer for the finishing touch. Easy to sharpen with sharpener. Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested. Contact lens safe. 25

So there you have it, the hottest trends for the summer. Whether you spend your days romping on the beach, or dancing under the stars at night, head out there with confidence and debut your summer-worthy looks!

Summertime is fast approaching, and in terms of beauty, that means a major change in your skin. All of those trips to the beach or pool can leave your skin oily, burned, scarred, or even melt away your makeup. Instead of having to suffer the unbearable consequences, follow these simple tips to protect your skin and maintain a healthy summer glow!


Lots of Water The key to keeping skin moisturized is to drink lots of water. It seems simple enough, but a lot of us do not drink enough water. Doctors normally recommend drinking 6-8 glasses a day; but in the summertime, they suggest drinking 8-9 glasses a day. As refreshing as a cold soda or juice sounds after a long day in the sun, the sugars can be dehydrating and end up doing more harm than good. So trade in that soda for a tall glass of ice-cold water. Water is the key to keeping skin moisturized, improves elasticity, and renews skin cells, helping you look younger, and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin; so drink up!

2. 3.

Ample Sun Protection We all know that in order to protect ourselves from the harmful rays of the sun we need to slather on the sunscreen. But with all the products out there it is difficult to know how much is too much, or how little is not enough? Chemical sunscreens are the standard for a day at the beach. The key is to look for broad- spectrum sunscreens to protect against the UVA and UVB rays. Increased melanin does protect the skin against UVB rays, but the harmful UVA rays still deeply penetrate skin; so look for sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher at least 15 minutes before heading outside, and make sure to reapply every 6090 minutes. The sun is at its peak from about 10am to 2pm, so try to avoid sun exposure at these times. If that is not possible, then make sure to wear a hat, and sunglasses to protect your eyes! For those days spent in the office, make sure that you use a physical sunblock made with titanium or zinc oxide to protect from indoor bulbs that can make brown spots on your face worse.

Moisturize Spending lots of time out in the sun can dehydrate your skin very quickly. Dry skin is more susceptible to infection, damage, and skin breakdown. To avoid this make sure that you moisturize using a lotion that is rich in aloe, sunflower seed oil, or oat protein, since they are packed with skin-hydrating ingredients. For extra protection, try to look for a daily moisturizer with SPF. Follow these simple tips to keep your skin healthy, your mind at ease, and your summer worry-free!



Midas Spring Water is bottled at the source and is one of the oldest bottled water companies in the country. Although we recommend drinking Midas at room temperature to allow your body to absorb the maximum benefits from the natural mineral content, we know that at any temperature you’ll love the crisp, clean taste of Midas Spring Water. In fact, we have to agree with our customers who say, “This tastes like snow!” Spring water. Mineral water. Healthy water



BabyGanics’ mineral based 50+SPF lotion provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and even moisturizes as it protects. So go ahead and use it everywhere….face and body – BabyGanics has your little one covered!

Restorative Night Treatment This silky smooth cream contains Rice bran, Candelilla, Jojoba and 36 more ingredients to add natural moisture and counteract age-causing dehydration. Wake up in the morning to energized, fresher looking skin. 41

Summer School – Balancing grades while still having Fun It is finally the end of a grueling spring term in college and you are extremely excited to have a soak up the sun and have some fun come summer. However, you have failed a few classes year and realize you will need to take some summer classes in order to maintain your graduation date. Being stuck inside school during summer isn’t exactly the most appealing circumstance, therefore you need to make time for some summer fun to keep you sane. Planning is key if you want to have fun while maintaining good grades this summer. Invest in a planner so you can write out your school schedule and when all your assignments are due and midterms and finals are going to be taken. Now, you can plan ahead. You know when everything is due therefore, you can plan days where you will sit down and focus on those specific assignments and get them done. In addition, you can plan study sessions before your midterms and finals so that you can get help from other people if needed. Moreover, you can plan a beach trip right after a midterm to reward yourself for how well you did. Balancing fun and studying is also important during summer school. Don’t have too much fun during summer school because that could lead to declining grades. If you fail your summer classes, you will just have to repeat them again and you will also have to pay for them again. Study first, and then have fun as a reward. Going out every night probably sounds appealing to every college student, but it does have a negative effect. You probably will not be well rested if you go out every single night. Enough sleep will keep you awake during class and you will retain more information that way. Get a good amount of sleep, about 7-9 hours per night. If there is some sort of event on campus, such as a concert, fair, or play, treat yourself to it. It is on campus; therefore, you can study outside while you are waiting for the event. You get to enjoy the beautiful, hot, weather while learning and then you can treat yourself to some fun. Living on campus can also be beneficial during summer term. It is much easier to make yourself go to class on a nice sunny day when you are already where you need to be. If you live on campus, you have to drive, walk, bike, or take public transportation to school. That requires some motivation on your part to actually get to campus from home. In addition, public transportation is not very reliable, especially during summertime. I speak from experience, because I have been late to summer classes numerous times due to it. When you are late to class, you’ll miss information that has already been told that could be crucial; so don’t be late. Overall, the key to maintaining grades and having fun during summer school is making plans to do well and rewarding yourself for doing so by having some fun. --- Mirela Cvetkovic

Unlike other bands following trends of music styles and fashion, alternative preppy rock group Vampire Weekend creates them. Members of the band formed while at Columbia University in New York and the rest is history. “Modern Vampires” is the Third Album with 12 new and very interesting tracks. This is an album you will be able to listen to repetitively without growing tired, with so many layers and lyrics it will take more then just one listen. Lead singer Ezra Koenig describe the album as “darker and more organic” and “very much the last of a trilogy”. Some instant favorites from “Modern Vampires” are tracks “Ya Hey”, “Finger Back”, “Worship You” “Diane Young”, “Step”, and “Obvious Bicycle”. Vampire Weekend will play the Hollywood Bowl on September 28th. “Modern Vampires” is out now.

3/5 ★★★☆☆ Daft Punk Album Review

The wait is over with the release of “Random Access Memories” from French duo Daft Punk. It has been 8 years since the Robots have released a studio album. The long awaited album features vocal and instrumental tracks with funky Disco inspired tracks bringing a blended mix of real instruments, synthesizer, and electronic vocals All into a modern sound. The album converges the best sounds of analog and digital packaged into one. The smash hit song “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers is the first single that has broken records And has become an instant hit. “Get Lucky” had the biggest streaming day for a single track on Friday in the U.S. and the United Kingdom on Spotify. “Instant Crush” is a personal favorite from the album. Featuring robotic jabber with electronic vocals and grungy electric guitar.

electronic vocals and grungy electric guitar. The monotone chorus is almost haunting with the lyrics Other tracks to check out from “Random Access Memories” are “Loose yourself to Dance” and “Doing it Right”. Currently this album has a lot to live u p to with all of the hype making Daft Punk the biggest name in electronic music. From start to finish “Random Access Memories” has peaks and valleys. Its not an album you will stick in your car and listen to from start to finish but it definitely has tracks that you will want to listen to. Some tracks have awkward narrations with almost too disco dated vibes and many tracks with no vocals. Go pick up Daft Punk’s new cd and give the robots your ears. By Brett Schorr

Fringe Me Summer is here! This year, the fringe bikini has grown and made its way to the top of the bikini trends. In contrast to last year’s crochet trend, the fringe trend seems to either be a hit or a miss. This swimsuit style is not just available in a bikini form, as seen with the L Space Swimwear by Monica Wise “Free Love Fringe Monokini Swimsuit” available at Neiman Marcus for $137. However, fringe bikini tops set a precedent in this year’s summer trends. Fringe bikini tops are made in bandeau and triangle forms, with some being leveled and others cascading inwards. Ultimately, the fringe works to elongate one’s torso and create a sultry look. Some claim that this is more of a lounging bikini, while others feel completely comfortable taking a dip in the pool or ocean dressed in it. Many celebrities, such as Hayden Panettiere and Rihanna, have been spotted soaking up the sun in fringe bikinis. Although some people find this style to be somewhat excessive, others think it adds a sense of originality to their summer style. This is a fun style that can even come off as sexy, depending on whether you buy it in hot pink or a summery red! Like every other trend though, these swimsuits are not personally favored by all. Some girls prefer a simple string tie, triangle top bikini though, fearing that the fringe brings too much attention to them. Whether or not you’re going to spend the summer soaking up the sun in fringe swimwear, make sure to keep your eyes open as you watch this trend quickly emerge. -- By Erin Shore

Carlon Jeffery

Carlon Jeffery is an actorartist-songwriter. He stars as Cameron Parks alongside cast members China Anne McClain, Sierra McCormick, Jake Short and Stefanie Scott on Disney Channel’s “A.N.T. Farm.” Cameron Parks (Carlon Jeffery) is China ’s older brother, though he spends a lot of time in her shadow. While she’s a prodigy, he’s not especially gifted at anything, but is determined to find something at which he excels. He’s not thrilled that his kid sister is at his school, so he tries to keep his distance. But, when push comes to shove, Cameron will step up to help China , especially when it involves problems. In addition to keeping very busy with acting, Carlon is a young artist who recently did a remake version of Will Smith's popular "Summertime" on the "A.N.T. Farm" soundtrack from Walt Disney Records. The soundtrack spent five weeks at #1 on the Billboard Kids Album chart! Here is an exclusive interview with this amazing young talent.


Carlon Jeffery Tell us about the day you found out that the show was picked up for another season. I was driving home with the top down when the news came in. It was amazing news to hear the show got another season. How long have you been writing music? What are the things that inspire you when you are writing? I’ve been writing music since I was in my tweens and I'm 19 now. The things that inspire me I write are love, friendships, my experiences in life, and sometimes how I feel about someone or something. Do you have any brothers or sisters? I’m a twin! I have a twin sister who is an actress as well. Where is your favorite place to eat and what is your favorite foods?

ReView Star Trek Into The Darkness

by Evan L. Jackson

J.J. Abram’s second installment of the reboot to this historic franchise, Star Trek Into The Darkness, has proven to be a smash hit. Bringing familiar characters back like Captain Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Sulu, & Uhara. Abrams adds his on little twists that make his take on the franchise unique. Captain Kirk still has his impulsive ways at the beginning of this film as he did in the previous one but the higher stakes involved make him more reasonable. Chris Pine plays Captain Kirk perfectly as shown in his witty banter with Spock and his innate ability to lead his crew through tough situations. Director J.J. Abrams gives a new spin on a younger Spock. He chooses to invoke emotion and rely on Spock’s human side to be showcased in this film. At the inset of this movie it has a darker and sinister tone not seen in the 2009 Star Trek. The once Star Fleet agent John Harrison has gone rogue with a slew of destructive acts that have taken many lives including Kirk’s mentor, Captain Pike. John Harrison is taken alive by Captain Kirk aboard the Enterprise and his true identity is revealed as Khan. The cold and calm voice of Benedict Cumberbatch who plays Khan is terrifying and he proves to be a worthy villain. Abrams uses iconic quotes and familiar scenes that die hard Star Trek fans will love with a balance of fresh dialogue and action packed scenes that new audiences will enjoy. With opening box office numbers at $70.6 million for the weekend Star Trek Into The Darkness is a great addition to this illustrious franchise. 95

Tell us a little bit about how you got started. I started acting before I learned how to read. I’ve been entertaining my whole life. I started out in my church choir and community plays. What has been the most exciting moment in your career so far? Receiving the Key to the City of Memphis and building a performing art school for kids. Being able to give kids who share the same passion as me, an opportunity to grow and do what they love in a safe environment, is the best feeling in the world. Do you have a celebrity crush? The Salvatore brothers… I love watching the Vampire Diaries. Tell us about the projects you are currently working on? I’m so excited to share all this music I’ve been recording, with my fans. Right now, I’m working on my new album, Passion (June 15, 2013). I’ve also been training for an action film project. I love acting and I love kickboxing, but I’ve never got to do them both at the same time. So this will be the first time that I get to combine them! Do you buy products made in America? All the time! I love shopping at American Apparel, they’ve got cute and comfortable clothes that I can dance and work out in. Who are your favorite designers and where are your favorite places to shop? Oh my gosh… I have so many shoes from Jeffrey Campbell, it’s crazy. I love his designs because they’re so edgy and different. It’s so easy to shop JC, I just go to Karmaloop and Boom! It’s in my mailbox in a couple of days! I love the Vera Wang fragrance. Their products are girly and sweet, I love their purple diamond hearts and gold crowns. I just got their new camouflage motorcycle jacket, I can’t wait to wear it. Versace is one of my all time favorite designers as well. Their designs are just timeless and unique.


Tell us something nobody knows about you. That’s a hard one. Well let’s see.. I’m a vegetarian. I’m a Pinkberry addict.. Oh wait I think people already know that (lol) My great, great, great, great grand father is Louis Armstrong. I’m really a mermaid. What is your favorite summer trend? All of the fun and different ways you can braid your hair. I love the gladiator sandals and the studded shorts. Where is your favorite place to travel? Hawaii. The water is so beautiful, clean, and clear. You can still see your hand when you put it in the water. Their mountains are so majestic. Last time I went there, we went hiking on the mountains. We found a waterfall surrounded by exotic purple flowers, I never wanted to leave. What are your hobbies or what do you like to do in your free time? Besides spend time with my family and friends… I love to write songs on my guitar, go to theme parks and find the scariest roller coaster and ride it… I love the thrill! I love reading books, sci-fi novels are my favorite. What are 3 items that are ALWAYS in your purse? Eos lip balm, hand sanitizer, an alternate iphone case, just kidding… And I always have something Hello Kitty. What advice do you give to people trying to make it in the entertainment industry? First of all, make sure that it’s truly your passion. If you’re doing it for money or fame, eventually you’re going to be unhappy. It’s going to take a lot of hard work and dedication. You’ll get discouraged but don’t give up. It doesn’t happen overnight, you can take little steps at a time to get there. My advice would be to start where you are, in your community. Use the resources that you do have access to, like the Internet. YouTube is a great place to share your skills. 113 115

Malese Jow is the beautiful and charming actress, singer, and dynamic personality taking over Hollywood at the moment. Malese’s past credits include Nickelodeon's "Unfabulous," "Hannah Montana," "iCarly," "Wizards of Waverly Place," "You're so Cupid," “The Social Network,” “Vampires Diaries,” and “Big Time Rush” among countless other starring and supporting roles. Malese can be seen in the upcoming CW series “Star-Crossed” as Julia. Her new project “Star-Crossed” is a futuristic modern day Romeo and Juliet with two young lovers from different worlds. The show features an alien species called the Atrians and how they are acclimating to life on Earth while being met with resistance from some of the small town humans. Currently, Malese is venturing into a promising music career and starting to learn guitar while balancing her successful acting career. We are excited to see Malese in her new role and to see what is in store for her bright future. In our exclusive interview with Malese we talk about her upcoming music career, her future projects, her character on her new show and how she stays transparent for her fans: What have you been up to lately, any fun new projects? I have been enjoying portraying the edgy rocker girl “Lucy Stone” on Nickelodeons “Big Time Rush”. It has been fun to hang out with people my own age while working on the show. I also just found out my pilot Star-Crossed has been picked up by the CW for a midseason release. It is a busy time for me! Tell us a little about the audition process, how many times did you have to go in and audition for your show “Star-Crossed”? The audition process is always a little different and depends on the project. Auditions are year round but there is also pilot season. For “Star-Crossed” I went in for an audition and they wanted me to read immediately with Aimee Teegarden who plays Emery on the show. I was waiting and waiting for a test to happen, and then I was on the phone with my manager who told me I would not have to wait to test, that they wanted to cast me in the show. I have never had that happen to me before. It is such a huge honor. I am so honored to be back with the CW family. 127


Where were you when you got the call that the pilot for Star-Crossed had been picked up? It is actually a funny story; I was at the thrift shop! Thinking to myself “your pilot has been picked up and you’re at the thrift shop”, super low-key. What can you tell us about your character Julia from your new show “Star-Crossed”? The first question I always get is “Are you playing an Alien”? My character Julia is Emery’s best friend on the show. She spends a lot of time in the hospital because she is terminally ill. You are going to have to watch the show to see how that plays out, but I see a good outcome for Julia on the show. Do you and Julia have a similar sense of style or are you very different from your character in real life? We have very different styles. I have to give props to the creative team because the show is set in the future, so the style and everything is different in general. In the pilot Julia spends a lot of time in pajamas, so she is very comfy. She wears a lot of pastels and is very colorful. No flare for Julia quite yet. I am more alternative and have “mood ring fashion”. However I am feeling that day is how I pick out what to wear. Since “StarCrossed” has been described as a modern day Romeo and Juliet, do you have a favorite version of the classic tale produced by Hollywood over the years? I love the Leonardo DiCaprio version. Any movie with Leonardo is fun to watch. How do you decide what to post to your instagram or twitter? Oh gosh, I love social media; it is a good way for people to get know me as a person. Before twitter and instagram people would judge by the characters they see on TV or movies and not really see the people behind the characters. I try to be very transparent to give a glimpse into my life and give a good representation of myself. I do use a little bit of discretion, but keep it real. I love instagram and twitter for that. When we interviewed you in January you mentioned you were venturing into a music career, how would you describe your sound?

Music is a part of my being. Surprisingly, my first love was music not acting. I am constantly writing music. I am gravitating towards a country singer song writer vibe. I recently picked up guitar and am practicing for live shows. Hopefully I will be getting to do live shows one day, who knows. What is your favorite product from an American made company? I absolutely love everything from NYX Cosmetics. They have the best make up. All of their products are super cute and affordable. What piece of clothing in your closet could you not live without? I could not live without hats. I am a hat girl. I feel like a hat just adds “me” to an outfit. When I was a little kid my mom says I always had to have a matching hat for my outfits. I love my hats. There are so many crazy recent trends in nail fashion, pointy, patterned, cat-like, ombre, etc., what nail style are you rocking today and which trends are you a fan of? I love getting gel manicures. I cannot imagine what I did before them. Right now my nails are painted a baby blue color; I try not to be too crazy. When picking my nail color I try to pick colors that will go with my outfits for the next two weeks. What is your favorite restaurant, we have heard you are a big chick fil a fan? I do love chick fil a, it is so good. I also really love sushi. I guess I just love food. I am the kind of girl that does not know what the word diet means. This summer some major blockbuster movies are coming to the big screen, which films are you excited to see? Since my show “Star-Crossed” is set in the future with aliens, I am interested to see how the public will react to all the alien movies coming out. I also am excited to see “Monsters University”, I’m into animated movies. I saw the trailer for “Enders Game” and it was so sick, hopefully the movie will be as good as the trailer. What three items could you not leave home without for a fun day at the beach? I would have to have a hat and lip gloss. I would also bring my phone, I am that girl who is constantly taking pictures and documenting everything. 129

Henna Tattoos Gone Wrong

It can take months to heal and sometimes the scars will last a lifetime.

Some pre-mixed henna pastes have Para-Phenylenediamine, or PPD, added to them to darken the pigment. These henna pastes often go by the name "black henna." The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves PPD for use as a hair dye, but not for use on the skin. The inclusion of PPD in henna paste can cause allergic reactions on the skin. Some post-inflammatory scarring can occur in the region of the reaction, as well as pigment changes. Keloid scars, or rubbery collagen scars, can also form. Early reactions to PPD in children can also cause a lifelong oversensitivity to the ingredient in hair dyes and dyed clothing, as well as an oversensitivity to other allergens


The Dark Side of Henna Tattoos Written by :Alexandra Hollen

Summer is here! This means hitting the beach, staying out in the sun, and making lasting memories. What better way to make memories last than to get a temporary henna tattoo, right? Well, the FDA has warned against temporary henna tattoos, citing adverse reactions by many, some even leaving with permanent scars. Traditional reddish-brown henna tattoos are not included in the warning, but instead the “black henna” tattoos. The “black henna” tattoos containing Para-Phenylenediamine (PPD) are drawn onto the surface of the skin, unlike traditional tattoos in which a needle filled with ink is injected into the skin. The PPD is a coal tar product that is approved for use in hair color, but is known to create skin reactions in some people. The FDA warns that some artists may even use a PPD containing hair color alone. The reason for adding this extra ingredient is to create a tattoo that is darker and longer lasting. However, the effects that remain can be horrendous, potentially harmful and for some people, lifelong.

The Facts:

The FDA has released new warnings against the temporary tattoos

Some states have jurisdiction for temporary tattooing, but depending on where you are, it is very possible that no one is checking to make sure that the artists are conducting safe practices. According to the FDA, MedWatch, their safety information and bad side effects reporting program, has received a number of reports of serious reactions caused by the temporary “black henna” tattoos. Some of the problems reported included raised red weeping lesions, blisters, redness, loss of pigmentation, sensitivity when exposed to sunlight, and even permanent scarring. One of the youngest victims of the unfortunate side effects was a five-year old girl whose parents reported to the FDA that she developed a brutal redness on her forearm a few weeks after receiving the temporary tattoo. Too many other consumers have learned the hard way about the dark side of “black henna” tattoos, and the FDA is urging them to consult a medical professional and report any side effect or adverse reactions to their MedWatch program. So maybe you should think twice before you venture out to those tattoo vendors commonly found on boardwalks, beaches, and other summertime destinations, and create other ways to commemorate those fond but fleeting summertime memories!

The “black henna” tattoos containing para-phenylenediamine (PPD) are drawn onto the surface of the skin, 153

FORD In May Ford announced that it would add 900 jobs on a third shift at its Kansas City factory, and later this year add an additional 1,100 jobs to start production od the Ford Transit Van. About half of the 2,000 new jobs will go to new hires . Ford's FSeries sales have risen 19 percent through April, and Ford expects further gains for the remainder of the year. A rejuvenated demand for construction jobs and lower gas prices has helped make this happen, as well as consumers wanting American made vehicles. Three long years ago, many people praising Ford today were worried it would shut the plant down, and by doing so eliminate 2,750 jobs but now the wheels have turned and the company is providing much needed work. Roughly half of the 2,000 new jobs will go to new hires — an impressive addition of workers by the Detroit automaker, which alone among its Michigan rivals does not import full-size pickups from Mexico." - Another reason to choose Ford over Chevy, Ram, Toyota, Nissan, etc. Ford, the only domestic automaker that did not accept the bailout. Ford has worked hard to keep the American dream alive and we should do our part as Americans and support companies that keep the manufacturing jobs here.

Lindsay Yenter, No Regrets


indsay Yenter, “Bachelor” runner-up from season 17, is known for boldly showing up on last season’s premiere in an Enzoani wedding dress to meet Bachelor Sean Lowe. Recently, Yenter has been signed by the bridal brand to host its fashion show June 3rd in Newport Beach, California. Although Lindsay did not win Sean’s heart she has grown so much from the experience and has gained valuable knowledge about true love. By day, Yenter’s still a.

substitute teacher but revealed to us she has a new man in her life. During an interview with Nationalist, Lindsay talked to us about her “Bachelor” experience, weddings, and plans for the near future. How would you plan the perfect wedding? Oh, well I have a little secret; I already know where I want to get married. On my parents land, so I would definitely get family involved. My mom is really excited and my dad is excited to plan a wedding on their venue. I would also definitely hire a wedding planner to help organize everything. I would not do it by myself; I would need a little bit of help. I think it is important to start planning with enough time and to set a timeline. I would keep calm and focused and enjoy every minute of it. Would you rather have a destination wedding, a small ceremony with close friends and family, or a large scale celebration? I would rather have a small ceremony with friends and family on my parents land. I think it is important to keep It more intimate. Do you think brides should wear the traditional white wedding dress? I think that the bride should wear whatever She feels the most beautiful in. Who is to say that white is what she will feel the most Beautiful in. I think she should wear whatever she feels fits her body and is the right color for her, and what she likes. Do you already have your future wedding dress picked out? I have the awesome opportunity to try on dresses with Enzoani. So I have an idea of what I want, I do not have the exact dress yet. But I have an idea and am looking forward to that day where I can finally pick it out. How do you feel about the trend of wearing crazy shoes (tennis shoes, slippers, boots) underneath wedding dresses? I think that it is an awesome idea. I am probably going to do that. Just make sure that whichever shoes that you decide to wear are comfortable, since you will be wearing them all day. A lot of brides now-a-days are on a tight budget what advice would you give them to be able to have the wedding of their dreams? I would tell them to think outside the box and not to focus on all the little tiny details. Put more of the money into the bigger things, and to fill in the holes with cheaper items. You can go to the dollar and craft or you can find a lot of resources from other places, you do not have to go to expensive resources to find things. Just know that at the end of the day it is about you and your husband and do not sweat the small stuff.

Being that you are now the spokesperson for this bridal line do you see yourself as becoming a wedding dress model? I would love to work with Enzoani in many different ways and I will see where that takes me. What was your reasoning behind showing up in a wedding dress to meet Sean? Well I always have wanted to be a wife and a mom. I thought that it would be a fun a flirty way of showing that off. They brought in a bunch of beautiful dresses, and I picked out this gorgeous Enzoani gown and I knew I had to wear it. It was a bit of a risk but it was totally worth it. Did you ever regret wearing the dress? If you could go back to that day would you have worn the dress again? I would, I would have worn it again. It really showed Sean that I could goof around. And that there’s a fun side of me.I was feeling a bit under the weather that night and I do not regret anything. How has the experience of being on the “Bachelor”, helped you in looking for love? You know being on the “Bachelor” really gave me the opportunity to put all of my support system aside and to rely on my inner strength. It made me really think about what I want in a partner and what I want in a husband and in a father and for my future children. You know Sean had a lot of those things and he was a nice guy, he has really strong morals and he is just an all-around good person. It kind of opened up my eyes to exactly what I want. Life is too short to be messing around with people who don’t treat you the way you deserve. Would you ever consider being on the “Bachelorette” or “Bachelor Pad”? I think that my time on reality TV has come to an end. It was a great time of my life. You know, I am ready to get some other things in my life. I have a great guy. I am looking forward to jumping into the wedding scene. Have you found Mr. Right after the “Bachelor” or are you still looking for the one? I am very happy with my current boyfriend, Karl. He is a great guy. There is no rush or pressure on me, we are just enjoying each other’s company. I am very happy. I couldn’t be happier. What have you learned from your “Bachelor” experience? I feel like that the whole experience really allowed me to grow up. I feel like a strong empowered woman. I walked away with so much from it. I am so happy and I know what I want in life. Now I am just excited for what is to come. By Bailey Burnside 179 181 183 185

To Juice Or Not To Juice There are three reasons why you will want to consider including fruit and vegetable juicing into your daily diet.Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. This is important because most of us have reduced digestion as a result of making bad food choices over the years. This limits your body's ability to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. Juicing will help to "pre-digest" them for you, so so your body will get most of the nutrition, rather than having it go down the toilet. Juicing allows you to consume the right amount of vegetables you need on a daily bases. If you are a carb type, you should eat one pound of raw vegetables per 50 pounds of body weight per day. Most of us find eating that many vegetables difficult, but it can be easily done with a quick glass of vegetable juice. You can add a wider variety of vegetables in your diet. Many people eat the same vegetable every day. This increases your chance of developing a food allergy to a certain food. But with juicing, you can juice a wide variety of vegetables that you may not normally enjoy eating whole. If you are new to juicing, a mid-priced juicer is perfect to start with. The cheap centrifugal juicers like the Juiceman break easily, produce low-quality juice, and are very loud. It is important to note that vegetable juice has very little protein and virtually no fat, so by itself, it is not really a complete food. It really should be used in addition to your regular meals not in place of it. So unless you are undergoing some special fasting or detoxification program, it is probably unwise to use juicing as a meal replacement. Ideally, it can be consumed with your meal or as a between meal snack. The Best of the Best Fashion Backstage Beauty Celebrity Interviews American Made Products And so much more
