A musky-woody floral, it preludes with sparkling Italian Mandarin and sensual Sea Breeze Accord. Its Zen-like heart of White Tea Extract and Mate Absolute Paraguay steeps in graceful femininity while Madras Wood, Ambrette Seed Absolute and a Trio of Tranquility Musks lead to a harmonious finale. For the woman who wants to immerse herself in the moment.

White Tea is a crisp, blissful new addition to the Elizabeth Arden fragrance portfolio. The perfect escape for your senses, it is an invitation to indulge in warm memories and delight in the white tea vapors, blue skies and cotton-like clouds.

Did you know?

White Tea is not rolled or oxidized, resulting in a flavour characterized as "lighter" than green or traditional black teas. White Tea generally includes young or minimally processed leaves.

Launched just this year, Elizabeth Arden's White Tea fragrance captures the simplicity and purity of White Tea (as described above). It's an intoxicating but not overpowering blend with a White Tea core and notes of citrus and wood. The fragrance is very zen-like. I love it! I wore it yesterday, today and it is sitting front and center on my bedside vanity tray for a light spray before bed tonight. Thank you Donna Raheb for introducing me to this fine fragrance.

A Glamorous Chat With Top Model Sharam Diniz

Sharam Diniz has come a long way since growing up and starting her modeling career in a small town in Luanda, Angola, Southwest Africa. Now in her mid-twenties, Sharam is walking the runways for the world top designers, being showcased at multiple Victoria’s Secret fashion shows, starring in campaigns for Chanel, Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Seven For All Mankind and Clinique, and to top it all off, becoming the first Angolan model to appear on the cover of Vogue Magazine. Not a bad resume!!!

With her career continuing to become more and more successful, Sharam is in the midst of launching her own hair extension product line and helping to work with other young models to advise them on their careers.

It’s A Glam Thing sat down with Sharam out of her current home in New York City to find out more about her own style, her favorite trends & career moments, and what goals are next.

NICK NORTHSTAR: How would you describe your own personal style – both while at home and while out in public / on the red carpet?

SHARAM DINIZ: I have a very versatile style. I like feeling confident with whatever I’m wearing. I consider myself a little lazy as well, when it comes to putting a whole look together so usually I wear dresses or jumpsuits, which are easy-to-go pieces, or simply jeans and sneakers whenever I’m traveling. When it comes to red carpets or galas, I mostly wear gowns.

NN: What are some of your favorite beauty products that you use to get red-carpet ready?

SD: Lots of mascara. Lip gloss is also key, as a dry lip can ruin your night and a smile always.

NN: As a model, who are some of your favorite fashion designers?

SD: I love feeling chic, elegant and sexy… some of my favorite designers are: Balmain, Carolina Herrera, Versace and Roberto Cavalli.

NN: What is your favorite Instagram filter? Or #NoFilter?

SD: It depends, but I usually embrace the colors of the images, I would say the filter I use the most is 50% of “Claredon” and 5% of sharpen.

NN: What Top 3 Fashion Trends do you LOVE right now?

SD: The short hair trend… I just did a hair cut and I’m loving it. I’m also a big fan of hats and in terms of make up the ‘natural look’.

NN: Out of all your runways & campaigns, which were your favorite to be a part of?

SD: Calzedonia and Victoria’s Secret, for the simple fact that as models we could interact more with the public and be ourselves.

NN: What is your advice to other models in Angola that want to come to the United States and pursue a full-time career in modeling?

SD: I would say once you find a good agency, stay focused and dedicated because it is a very competitive market. If you “fall asleep” it is hard to get up again, but most important of all, enjoy the ride.

NN: What is your definition of “Glam”?

SD: Glam for me means beauty and elegance.

NN: How does the style in New York compare to that in Hollywood and Angola?

SD: I feel like New York is everything about art and fashion, Hollywood can be more “chilled” and Angola even though is a tropical country, during the day people might be seen in comfortable looks but in the evening women change completely, that’s one thing you should know about Angolan women, we are vain.

NN: What are your goals for the next few years?

SD: Acting is still my dream and I am continuing in developing my hairline extension brand “Sharam Hair” in different markets such as America, Europe and Africa.

Pamper Your Dog With Custom Designed and Created Celebrity Canine Couture by Christine Litteral

Celebrity Canine Couture first caught my eye on  Instagram.   As a lover of dogs, I adored all of the lovely photos and amazing outfits created by Christine Litteral.  Curiosity immediately took me to Christine’s beautiful Celebrity Canine Couture Website, where I was introduced to a unique variety of very classy eye-catching outfits for dogs of any size and breed.
I decided it was about time that my little 5-pound, seventeen-year-old Yorkie, George, got an outfit from Christine’s Celebrity Canine Couture creations!!!  It was such a simple process to order. All I needed to do was take some very easy measurements of George!
 (Read all of the specifics on the website at Measure Your Dog. )  
We chose the Sweetest of all outfit for George. It’s so soft and cuddly on his sensitive skin. He loves it and will even wear it in the house, as it provides the comfort of a sweet little blanket.  We can’t wait to order his next outfit!

HOT ROD DOG

 MY INTERVIEW WITH CHRISTINE LITTERAL :
 
1. VICKI:  How did you start Celebrity Canine Couture? 
 CHRISTINE: I went to the shelter to adopt (one) dog after my beloved 17+ year dog passed. There were so many sweet dogs there, and I now have 7 rescues, which are the love(s) of my life! Since I can’t personally adopt more I donate part of every sale to help dogs in need. (Find more details on the website)

2. VICKI: What’s ‘your’ favorite part of your business?
CHRISTINE: Meeting our clients – the dogs and their people. I get to know their lifestyles and the special times they share together. 
Seeing how great the dogs look in all the different designs, fabrics and colors and knowing the dog is comfortable is very rewarding. I’ve made many dear friends and think of them while I’m sewing to make each outfit special for them.
3. VICKI: Did you always want to design dog clothing?
 CHRISTINE: I started designing and making clothes for my own dogs because the ones in stores are low quality and don’t fit well. I wanted designs that are unique with the finest quality materials. Comfort is just as important so every outfit is fully lined with the softest fabrics. Three things that are a must: Outstanding beauty, Comfort, and Durability. Even our jeweled designs are washable.

4. VICKI: What inspires you?
 CHRISTINE: My visits to the shelters always stay with me – all the dogs that need homes. That’s what keeps me going, doing my part to help as many as possible find a loving home.

By the way, Christine also works with celebrities and offers  Star Service.  Be sure to take a moment to visit the  Star Service link for more information.

Know More about the Beneficial Features of Melanotan Peptide

Melanotan peptide is a popular tanning agent aiding millions of people to wade off the dull appearance of their pale skin. It has even proved to be the best medication to be prescribed for patients suffering from the symptoms of damaged cells of the skin.

What exactly is Melanotan II?

It is a chemical compound having elements similar to melanocyte hormone produced naturally in the human body. It was mainly produced in laboratories as a prevention method for skin cancer. It proved to be a safe way to enhance the production of melanin naturally in the body. Melanin is responsible for smooth functioning of every activity related to the skin. Hence, if you need to have darker skin pigmentation then melanotan peptide presents the best solution.

Tanning of the skin happens due to the dark pigmentation present in the skin cells. The pigmented cells act as a kind of shield to protect the skin from outer infectious elements. Since last decade Melanotan II has become highly sold product due to varied valid reasons.

The reasons are:

  • If you prefer to have tanning without any risk of sun burns take the prescribed dosage of this med.
  • Your skin is protected from the ultraviolet rays.
  • For males, it is the best aid to enhance their libido.
  • A good therapy to improve the stimulating of PDE5 inhibitors.
  • Best remedy to prevent premature skin aging.
  • It is effective to eradicate marks of scars, skin burns and hides blemishes.
  • Helps in diminishing uneven skin tone as it spreads evenly all over the body.
  • It is great appetite suppressor. Thus, if you prefer not to feel the hunger pangs often, try to take this product.
  • Proved to be a weight loss aid.

It will help you to have wrinkles, pimples and freckle free face. Fitness seekers and people suffering from obesity symptoms prefer to have the beneficial compound to burn their fatty tissues. However, the desired effects can be only experienced by consuming right proportion of dosage.

Dosage level:

As the med is in peptide form, you need to know the correct proportions of the powder. The dosage level depends on why you want to take this medicine and the type of your skin. Generally, the dosage level ranges from 100mcg to 1000mcg.  In early stages, you can have the dosage up to 10 mg for each dose. Gradually increase the dosage to 3mg per day after first week. You can add more proportions reaching to 800mcg taken twice a week.

If you prefer to inject the peptide mix, the powder must be combined with bacteriostatic or with sterile water. It can be either injected under the skin or in the muscles, both ways are equally effective. This sunless tanning product has proven to have negligible side effect if utilized as per the instructions. The effect stays permanently, if you have followed all the instructions of taking the dosage correctly.

It will be beneficial to buy melanotan peptide of superior quality from reliable vendor. To know more about the medication, log on to websites promoting the marketing of the effective medicine.

Go with the Gut: 7 Foods to Eat for Better Skin, Hair and Mood

 

By Dr. Christopher Calapai D.O.

All symptoms of the body from thin, dull hair, and sallow skin, to acne breakouts, body aches and sluggish energy all point to the gut. Gut health is incredibly important making mindful eating an essential part of longevity and anti-aging. If you want to feel vibrant and maintain a youthful appearance up to 15 years younger than your actual age, start weaving these key foods into your diet.

Garlic:

When we have an overgrowth of candida in the gut we experience things like acne breakouts, bloating, and constipation. Garlic mitigates all of this because it kills candida. Garlic also aids in digestion and immunity. Garlic also has anti-inflammatory properties making it ideal for joint aches. Allicin, which serves as an anti-aging, antifungal benefit to garlic aids in smoothing skin and preventing acne and other skin conditions.

Ground Flaxseed:

Responsible for helping food to travel effortlessly and smoothly through the GI tract, flaxseed keeps us regular. Flaxseed also contains cancer fighters called lignans which also ward off heart disease. Flaxseed helps to minimize rashes, skin flare ups and irritation. When you consume flaxseed your skin becomes more even toned and less sensitive.

Apple cider vinegar:

One of the best ways to address any digestive issues is to combine a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water or in tea and drink it before a meal. It helps your body to break down food. It helps with to prevent indigestion and stomach issues after eating. Anytime you can aid the digestive process you’ll notice glowing skin and a youthful radiance.

Celery & Celery Juice:

Another anti-inflammatory and cancer fighter celery also lowers blood pressure and rids us of sugar cravings (and sugar makes the skin sallow and leads to breakouts). The natural salts in celery juice maintain a healthy gut pH. The common recommendation is to drink 16 ounces on an empty stomach and improvements to digestion and physical appearance will be evident within 10 days.

Cauliflower:

High in fiber, cauliflower helps the gut maintain healthy microbes. This is important because when microbes or gut flora are out of whack a whole slew of symptoms become evident. These include digestive issues, depression or anxiety, and skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.

Fermented foods:

Kimchi is delicious and sauerkraut or pickled vegetables can make for a nice topping to a salad or mid-day snack. These fermented foods are packed with good bacteria which balances the microbiome, which is the anchor for our health and immunity.

Asparagus:  

Another “prebiotic” fiber that keeps the gut healthy and balanced is asparagus. You can add garlic to it and broil it in the oven offering a 1 -2 punch of gut friendly foods in one delicious side dish. It’s important to note that people who suffer from stomach pain may not do well with prebiotics in larger amounts. If the gut is already inflamed these foods can cause a flare up.

About the Doctor:

Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O. is an Osteopathic Physician board certified in family medicine, and anti-aging medicine. Proclaimed the “The Stem Cell Guru” by the New York Daily News, Dr. Calapai is a leader in the field of stem cell therapy in the U.S. His stem cell treatments have achieved remarkable results in clinical trials on patients with conditions as varied as Alzheimer’s, arthritis, erectile dysfunction, frailty syndrome, heart, kidney and liver failure, lupus, MS and Parkinson’s.
