Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

Beauty: Bioré – Baking Soda For Your Skin

by Nina Wro @ You rock my life

Baking Soda for your skin? First, that might sound a bit odd. But if you do a little research about baking soda, its effects and what it’s usually used for, it all makes perfect sense: Sodium bicarbonate, the “official” term for baking soda, is a natural substance that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. This alkaline substance has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a powerful medical tool effective at combating skin issues: It helps regulate you skin’s pH and it has a gentle abrasive ability to help scrub. If you’ve been reading my blog for a little while, you probably know that I’ve had some issues with my skin and even consulted a dermatologist to have it checked. Of course, I’ve been super eager to try everything that could help improving the appearance of my skin. So when I heard about Bioré and the effect it claims to have on the skin, I was really excited to try it out. I’ve been using the Bioré baking soda scrub and also the Bioré baking soda pore cleanser for two weeks now, and I can say that I definitely see an improvement in my skin. Whereas the pore […]

Beauty: You Rock My Life x Essie Blogger Collection

by Nina Wro @ You rock my life

I wish you could feel my excitement while I’m writing this… I’m finally allowed to tell you what I’ve been keeping a secret since summer: Essie reached out to me a couple of months ago and asked if I’d like to collaborate with them and have my own little collection of nail polishes. First I couldn’t even believe it, and of course my answer was YES! I’ve been a huge fan of Essie nailpolishes for ages and have been collecting them ever since. I’m proud to call a whole shoe box full of Essie polishes my own, which I’ve been collecting over the years. During this time a few of the polishes became my absolute favorites, and exactly those six colors are part of the You Rock My Life x Essie Blogger Collection.  Let me introduces you to my favorite Essie colors: Sugar Daddy It’s my go-to color whenever I feel like wanting plain nails. Fun fact: I cannot look at my nails when they have no polish on. I feel totally naked and always need at least some base coat on them. Sugar Daddy is a transparent hue of pink which gives your nails a healthy and subtle glow. […]

Oklahoma Couple Sentenced to 20 Years for Torturing and Beating Boy So Badly He Suffered Multiple Strokes

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Two Oklahoma women were sentenced to 20 years in prison for the brutal beating of their 5-year-old son.

Rachel Jean Stevens, 29, and Kayla Ann Jones, 26, pleaded no contest to child abuse and child neglect charges on Friday.

The boy told authorities in December 2015 that his mother, Stevens, and her partner Jones had beaten him with a belt, Tulsa World reported.

But investigators discovered that he had not just been beaten with a belt but had been locked in a room, tied up and blindfolded with duct tape over his eyes.

Stevens then had hit the boy’s hand with a hammer, and Jones had “kicked him so hard in the groin that it made him bleed,” Tulsa World reported.

According to KFOR , authorities found another 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl living in the home, but did not believe those children had been abused. The Department of Human Services took the children into custody.

Officers transported the victim to a hospital in Tulsa, after he suffered through two seizures, as well as multiple broken bones, according to the NewsOK.

CBS News reported in 2016 that a GoFundMe page set up by the two women asked for donations, claiming the child was picking his own face and was having seizures because he fell down.

Muskogee County District Attorney Orvil Loge told Tulsa World Wednesday that the plea agreement accepted by the women “was a conclusion that was carefully discussed with the family.”

“The nature of the injuries were very severe, but the child is doing very well now in loving home,” Loge said. “He is a completely different child now than when this first came in.”

Recipe: Vegan Chocolate Cake without Compromises

by Nina Wro @ You rock my life

When it comes to cake, I’m quite easily satisfied: Lots of chocolate, moist, and preferably with a side of berries – those are the attributes of the cake of my dreams. When you’re lactose intolerant like me though, this cake might sound like a challenge. But not anymore! Although I’m not vegan, I love the fact that there are so many amazing recipes and substitutes for animal products emerging. On the hunt for a chocolate cake recipe without milk or butter, I found this super easy recipe for chocolate cake.  No diary, and no eggs in it. You could never tell that it’s eggless, and the best part is it stays moist even after 3 or 4 days. And let me tell you: It’s one of the best and juiciest chocolate cakes I’ve ever had! Plus, it’s whipped together very quickly and you don’t need to be a heroine in the kitchen to make it happen. No fuss, no mess. Inspired by the slogan of Teekanne FRESH – “Not up for compromises!” (deutsch: Kein Bock auf Kompromisse!”), I thought I’d make my own birthday cake this year without any lactose. Usually, my family or friends would always surprise me with cake, […]

Lifestyle: The basic rules of beautiful skin

by Nina Wro @ You rock my life

There are a lot of things I miss about being a teenager: Endless summer holidays, having a mom around who does all my laundry, a fridge that’s always full (also thanks to my mom) and all those emotions and dramas that felt so big back then. But there’s definitely one thing I don’t miss at all, which currently seems to haunt me down in my adulthood (I’m turning 27 next month!). And that’s acne. Because let’s face it: I don’t really have an excuse to have bad skin. By now, I know which foods to avoid (hello lactose intolerance!), I know it’s essential to clean my face before going to bed, I have access to the best skin care products, and I’m taking a combined oral contraceptive pill that’s supposed to help against impurities. And still, I’m experiencing breakouts. Hence – no excuses, right? All of these things mentioned above keep my skin mostly under control, but I still have to deal with more impurities, pimples and cysts than I’m cool with. They are mostly on my cheeks and despite being very annoying and not cute at all, they also hurt very much. I feel like I’m too old for […]

WHY ARE THERE NO CHAMPIONS FOR ETHICS IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?

by Elizabeth Nichin @ The Feminist Beauty Project

Consuming less, living more intentionally, being more mindful, and curating higher quality, well-made goods.

Call it what you want: ethical, sustainable, conscious consumerism, minimalism, fewer better things. There are plenty of terms that we use.

I've sort of gotten swept up into this slow living movement. I have to admit--it's a really popular topic on blogs and You Tube as of late...and it is pretty addicting. Thanks, Marie Kondo! (This is an affiliate link; see below for more information.) And I've even talked a little bit about how this has seeped into my beauty routine lately.

Still, I think there has been a lot of focus on our clothing, on fast fashion, and on how we can be more ethical, sustainable, and conscious consumers when it comes to fashion.

I get it--we all need to wear clothes. Makeup and beauty products are more of an elective for some people. Changing how we buy our clothes can have a huge impact on the world if everyone listens. But the beauty industry is a major global force, too--and we shouldn't ignore that. In 2014, the global cosmetic market was valued at 460 billion (in USD).

That's huge.

We can't say that changing how we think about cosmetics and the beauty industry won't have an impact on the world--on labor, on the environment, and on our well-beings.

The bottom line is that with documentaries like The True Cost and blogging fads like minimalism and capsule wardrobes (I have to admit--my personal favorite is Capsules by Cladwell), people are paying more attention to the fashion industry. And consumers are asking more questions about fast fashion companies and the implications that fast fashion has on our lifestyles, on the planet, and on the people who are making our clothing.

This is a good thing.

And I'm all for it. I've been changing the way I consume clothing and think about my wardrobe, too.


BUT I'M STILL WONDERING: WHY DOESN'T THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY HAVE CHAMPIONS FOR ETHICS JUST LIKE THE FASHION INDUSTRY DOES?


Why is there no "true cost" of beauty? Why aren't there thousands of posts on beauty blogs about creating a capsule cosmetic collection? Why aren't we asking questions about who is making our mascara, and under what conditions? Why aren't we talking about how to make the beauty industry more sustainable for the environment? Why aren't we asking these questions and so many more?

It's time for us to start asking, and to start demanding the answers.

If we care about the food we eat and the clothes we wear, we should care just as much about what we put on our bodies. That means we need to ask questions about our mascara, our shampoo, and our toothpaste. Our nail polish and our cleaning products. Our deodorant and our lipstick. (Yes! Even our lipstick!)

I'm committed to being a champion for ethics in the beauty industry. Are you? Let me know down below!

Beauty: Armani Ecstasy Shine – 24 hours in Paris with Giorgio Armani

by Nina Wro @ You rock my life

This year, I’ve been to Paris twice already, and both times it was for super happy reasons: I remember the day I flew to Paris with Armani Beauty like yesterday, although it’s already two months ago. For the launch of their new innovative lipcream, Giorgio Armani Beauty invited me to Paris to discover the new Ecstasy Shine lipstick range first hand. In the most beautiful setting of Paris 4th arrondissement, Armani pulled out all the stops to introduce bloggers from all around the world to their new masterpiece. Different stations at the venue were build up to explore all details of the Ecstasy Shine lipstick: In a photo booth filled with balloons we were able to take funny selfies and little videos, in a dark room a professional video crew took a short 3D video of us, and of course Armani make up artists made sure we looked pretty and our lips were center of attention thanks to Ecstasy Shine. Ecstasy Shine is not “just another lipstick”, but it’s fully packed with an innovative formula, that makes it twice as soft as a traditional lipstick. The innovative alternation of heating and cooling phases leads to a soft, lightweight texture with radiant mirror shine and enhances […]

WATCH: Katy Perry Channels Janet Jackson with Rendition of ‘What Have You Done for Me Lately’ on Tour

WATCH: Katy Perry Channels Janet Jackson with Rendition of ‘What Have You Done for Me Lately’ on Tour

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Katy Perry did something great for her fans — and fans of Janet Jackson.

The “Swish Swish” singer, 32, opened her WITNESS: The Tour Wednesday in Montreal, Quebec, to Jackson’s 1986 hit “What Have You Done For Me Lately.”

Perry wore a black and white costume outfitted with rhinestones as well as a a bejeweled hat while dancing to Jackson’s original choreography.

Perry’s tour delayed its opening for a week due to “unavoidable production issues” but looks like those are behind her.

While Perry paid tribute to Jackson, the “Rhythm Nation” singer recently paid tribute to new artists Cardi B dancing to the rapper’s hitduring Jackson’s world tour, State of the World Tour.

Jackson wore a black suit and danced and sang to “What Have You Done For Me Lately,” before segueing into “Bodak Yellow.”

Cardi B shared the video on her Instagram page, in shock that Jackson would sing her song during her set.

“I really can’t even believe this,” she wrote in the caption. “.Its soo surreal .Like ommmmmmgggg son this type of s— you dream about .Thank you Janet Jackson for showing Bodak Yellow some love.Im so happy .”


BEAUTY FOR THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER

by Elizabeth Nichin @ The Feminist Beauty Project

I love makeup. I am also someone who believes that we deserve to know more about how our beauty products are made, who is making them, what is in them, where those ingredients are sourced from, and how those ingredients are being sourced. It’s hard out here for a beauty lover who wants to shop ethically.

So you’ve made the conscious decision to stop buying clothing from fast fashion retailers. You’re hip to the damage that the fast fashion industry has on garment workers and the environment. You’ve seen The True Cost. You’re well on your way, eco-babe! But what about your makeup? Finding ethical makeup products can seem like a daunting task. Here are some roadblocks and tips to beauty for the conscious consumer.

ORGANIC, GREEN, NATURAL

Cosmetics companies often use these words to sell products. It’s called greenwashing—a powerful and deceitful tactic. The truth is that there is no regulation of what these terms actually mean within the beauty industry. However, there are many resources for consumers to learn more about what is really in our products.

Check it out! Beauty Lies Truth – they have a “Clean List” of products and a “Dirty List” of ingredients to look out for

 

CRUELTY FREE AND VEGAN

Many beauty and cosmetics brands are considered cruelty free, which means that they do not test or allow testing on their ingredients and their finished products. No animals harmed! Vegan products are not tested on animals and also don’t contain any animal by-products (ingredients such as beeswax, carmine, and lanolin). Some companies are completely vegan and others are cruelty free with vegan options.

Careful! Some companies claim to be cruelty free, but really aren’t. Always be sure to do your research. PETA and The Leaping Bunny both have cruelty free certifications that companies can apply for. Keep an eye out for their logos on your beauty products.

Check it out! Logical Harmony – Justin and Tashina have great lists for Cruelty Free and Vegan makeup option, and their certification process is very trustworthy and thorough.

 

I’m waiting for the day that I can buy mascara from a company that ethically sources organic ingredients, pays fair living wages to its workers throughout the supply chain, that can trace its products through the supply chain from ingredient to store shelf, that does not test on animals or use animal ingredients and by-products, that cares deeply for the earth, and all living creatures who dwell here, and that is committed to sustainability. We haven’t gotten to that point yet, and the beauty industry is a complex place that we must learn to navigate.

MY TIPS?

1.       Buy Small.

It’s easy to rely on Sephora and Ulta to meet our beauty needs, but next time you run out of something, try purchasing from an independent creator on Etsy or in a local boutique. Artisans around the world are hand crafting natural and organic skin care, soaps, facial oils, and even makeup! I am totally pro supporting small businesses!

2.      Keep on reading.

Read ingredient labels. When the ingredients don’t look familiar to you, read up about what they are. Do as much research as you can. The internet is full of beauty bloggers asking questions about ingredients and products.

3.      Contact your favorite companies.

If a company you love tests on animals, write them an email explaining why ending animal testing is so important to you! Tell your favorite companies what kind of things matter to you. After all, the consumers do have the power!
