hearing aids Oakville

I spent the past weekend in Indio, California enjoying all the bands performing at the Coachella music festival. When I wasn't listening to the music (still can't believe Beyonce surprised the audience when she stepped out to perform "Forever Young" with hubby Jay-Z!), I was busy people watching and admiring the music festival style. From the requisite maxi-dresses and huge sunglasses to daring leather hot pants and crop tops, almost anything goes at a music festival. My favorite fast fashion retailer H&M was also there promoting their upcoming Fashion Against AIDS campaign featuring their festival collection. 25% of the sales of the collection will be donated towards youth HIV/AIDS awareness. The collection features everything you'd need at the music festivals from tunic tops, leather jackets, and gladiator sandals. They've even included tents and sleeping bags so you can sleep in style too. So grab the collection starting on May 20th and help fight AIDS while looking fabulous. See you at Lollapalooza!
Using beauty products may not be the most environmentally harmful part of your daily routine (well, unless of course you're addicted to hairspray), but if you're into going the natural route for the sake of saving your skin and the planet, you're certainly not the only one! Lucky for us eco-conscious makeup mavens, some of our favorite beauty brands have jumped on the green bandwagon and made natural, organic, and eco-chic versions of their popular products. For example, Lancome's Juicy Tubes Pure are just like the old favorite, but this time with 95% natural ingredients! And Urban Decay's shadow box packs 10 of their favorite shadows into a sustainable wooden box complete with a cruelty-free eyeshadow brush. I won't be dramatic and say that a few coats of organic mascara will save the world, but hey -- every little gesture counts! Take a browse through the slideshow to see which big-name brands have gone natural!
