Fabletics Changed the Game for Everyone

There are a lot of ways you can get great looking exercise clothing, but few offer the game changing ideas that Fabletics did. They started an online store that was different from the rest.


Subscription Service

Fabletics wasn’t the first one to introduce subscription services, but they were one of the first ones. They offered and still do offer, their customers a chance to set up an account and then forget about it. This works great for both you, the customer and the business. You get great clothing without worrying about going out to get it and they get a new customer. The service is one of the few that will keep sending you a new outfit every month until you decide to stop it.


Online Ease

They offer their clothing online for you to get without seeing how it might fit on your body, but you can return it if it’s not what you were looking for. They will then send you something different that you choose and that will be better suited for you. You can also be assured you will get the best quailty for the amount you are spending because they are online. They don’t have the same overhead that other businesses might have to worry about. This allows them to sell to you at a lower price but with great quality for your needs.



Because of the massive success Fabletics has had online, they started some limited stores you can get your clothing from if you live in large cities. They have done well so far as you can go into them and pick out what you want and take it with you the same day. They are looking at expanding to other cities in the near future. You can also go in and see what the colors of the items you may like but are not sure about to see how the color looks in person. Photos are great, but they can’t give you the same perspective as seeing it in person.


There are a lot of things to think about when you are getting your exercise clothing online, but you may want to look at Fabletics to see how it’s going to work for you and the needs you have. The last thing you want is to not be able to use the clothing you get because it isn’t what you expected. That is where Fabletics can help. Give them a try and see how they work for you.

Black Friday week is still going strong! Shop the sale in stores and online. (Link in bio)

Lime Crime on the big screen

Riverdale’s star, Cheryl, is always sporting a fierce look with her classic red lips. Her look has be something so expensive we couldn’t dream of pulling it off but, that’s not the case. Cheryl is in fact wearing Lime Crimes Red velvet lip color. Who knew? This lip color is from Lime Crimes matte velvetine collection which comes in other lovely pigments along side the gorgeous red. Lime Crimes matte velvetine collection is everything proof; no smudging and kiss proof. I call that a win-win!

LimeCrime features pocket candy palettes that showcase five colors in each set that would go great with Cheryl’s Red matte velvetine. The pink lemonade palette would be my pick to go with her bright red lips. This pocket candy palette features some soft pinks, neutrals, and a dark red like color that would work well with bright red lips to complete Cheryl’s look. Red lips and a fierce outfit go together very well. If Cheryl wore something like a leopard dress or something sexy with her Lime Crime red matte lips it would really pull together her look.

Lime Crime has lots of beautiful products that’d make any look even better. Lime Crime just released their new diamond dew colors that are magnificent. Lime Crime has a color called burgundy iridescent that would make their red matte velvetine lip color even more exciting. Lime Crimes diamond dew colors are actually eye shadow colors that you could put over top of any lip color to give it more of a pop. Doesn’t every woman love some glitter in their life? of course.

All the diamond dew colors are gorgeous and could add a little extra to any look you wish to achieve even for our Riverdale star Cheryl. Lime Crime offers many lovely pigments and makeup options for anyone whether you’re a star on television or just a mom looking for something to spice up your daily look. Add some Lime Crime to your beauty collection.

Roberto Santiago’s Career in Real Estate

Roberto Santiago is a well-known businessman and real estate investor in Brazil, and many other parts of the world. He was born in Joao Pessoa in 1958. He us an alumnus of Pio X-Marist College, as well as the University Center of Joao Pessoa, where he earned his degree in Business Administration.


While growing up in Joao Pessoa, Santiago developed a keen interest in business. At a very young age, he tried his hands at carton manufacturing. This was when he got a job at a carton design and manufacturing firm. His role at the firm was to design and manufacture cardboard boxes.


Career in Real Estate


Roberto Santiago decided to make the move from carton manufacturing to the real estate sector after working for several years. He has grown to become one of the legendary entrepreneurs of his time. His success story is well-known in Brazil, and he has every reason to be proud of it. Santiago is also a writer.


One of the achievements which Roberto Santiago has made in Brazil’s real estate sector is developing one of the most breath-taking shopping malls in the country. His shopping complexes, also known as Manaira Shopping Mall, took him about 2 years to complete. He started the project in 1987, when he bought the piece of land on which the mall was built.


Manaira Shopping Mall comprises various shopping complexes with various amenities. Some of the facilities in the mall include a rooftop concert hall, shopping stores, a financial institution and a college. The mall also features a gym, a gaming area and a food court.


Domus Hall, the rooftop concert hall, was launched in 2009. The space is used for weddings, conferences, graduation ceremonies and even exhibitions. The space can accommodate around 4000 seats and it has a standing capacity of about 10000 individuals.


Manaira Shopping Mall is considered one of the best entertainment spots in Brazil. Always flocked by tourists and local residents alike, the mall is suitable for people of all ages. The gaming area, for instance, comes with various options for children, teenagers and adults. Spread over 18000 feet, the gaming section of the mall also features different themes.


Other projects


Roberto Santiago also owns another mall, Mangeira, which was completed in 2013. One common factor that cuts across his real estate projects is his use of modern technology. They are also geared towards boosting the socio-economic impact on the Joao Pessoa community. Not only do these projects provide the best shopping experience for residents and tourists, but they also create employment for the local people as well as immigrants.



Rocketship Education Believes Parents Should Be Involved With The Selection Of Their Childrens Teachers

Most parents have no way of knowing which individual will be teaching their kids until shortly before the start of a new school year. Rocketship Education has a different approach, and believes parents should be involved in the interviews conducted for teachers. The first Rocketship Education in school in Washington D.C. is encouraging parents to help with the interview process. This concept is not new for Rocketship, and has previously been used for the thirteen schools already established.

As the CEO for the schools, Preston Smith believes parental participation is one of the foundations of Rocketship Education. The learning style incorporated by the schools is unique, effective, personalized, and been the recipient of a lot of attention across the nation. One of the cores of Rocketship Education principles is parents should be involved with their children’s education, and the concept has performed amazingly well.

Every campus incorporates the parents of the students into the job interviews in some way. Panel interviews may be conducted by families who have been trained for this purpose, and sometimes the job finalists are met by the parents at a community meeting. The concept works so well because the leaders of the schools, and the parents always seem to agree. There have been occasions where the candidate decided they were not right for the job for a variety of reasons. One candidate could not cope with the level of parental involvement, and made the right decision by simply leaving.

The parents of the kids attending the Rocketship Education school in the District of Columbia told the press how much they appreciated, and valued the right to become acquainted with the teacher candidates. The parents are interested, and want to know about the individuals responsible for teaching their children. Most parents look forward to their participation in these interviews. Unfortunately, involving the parents at this level is rare, although it has been done in the past. Rocketship Education simply believes there should be an affinity between the teachers, and the parents. They feel this enables the parents to better help their children with their educations, and to help them succeed.

Why Fabletics is leveraging on the power of the crowd.

Today, customers use reviews on a product to determine whether they will purchase a commodity or not. Consumers trust reviews as much as they trust personal recommendations. From surveys done, consumers carry out research on a business at least once a month and as a result, Fabletics has grown by over 200 percent since 2013, because they leverage on the power of the crowd.


Genuine reviews boost a business, especially when the business incorporates reviews into their product offerings. This, in turn, earns the business loyal customers. Positive reviews can improve a brands search ranking by up to 17%.


A recent study shows that online products with more reviews are ranked higher in searches on their respective site, for example, Walmart, Amazon, etc, than those without reviews. Including reviews on a product page increases the chances of converting a site visitor into a customer thus increasing company revenue.


Kate Hudson


Fabletics is an athleisure brand that is designed to empower you to be the best that they can be. Kate Hudson, with the help of her team, has grown Fabletics into a $250 million company in just three and a half years, which is actually phenomenal considering she’s an actress with no business background.


In 2013, a time when a stylish, quality and pocket-friendly athleisure brand did not exist, Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg thought of filling this market gap and Kate Hudson was the first person that came to mind. The Fabletics president, Gregg Throgmartin, felt that Kate represented the Fabletics idea since she is approachable, doesn’t take herself too seriously and has an active lifestyle. Kate was, in all aspects, actively involved in the business from the get go. Whether it was budget or strategy, Kate was present and continues to work closely with her team to ensure that their product remains fresh. On a weekly basis, Kate takes a look at sales numbers and is always aware of the fast moving designs and those that are not so popular.


You would think that your great idea would automatically succeed if you had experienced investors and a celebrity founder. Well, success doesn’t come that easy. Fabletic’s first order cost $300k in inventory but unfortunately, it was of poor quality and had to be trashed. The company had to delay their launch by six months in order to get this right.


As if that was not enough, concerns arose that their most popular items were sold out. Kate ensured communication was a priority and Fabletics upgraded their customer service department by installing a new system that would keep track of inventory levels. Their data-driven business approach played a major part in their growth. For athleisure, the future looks bright since the company has 22 retail shops and plans on opening a dozen more in 2017.


Kate Hudson is hardworking, ambitious and stands for what she believes is authentic but despite her being a businesswoman, being an artist is where her heart truly lies.

Securus Technologies is Bringing Families Together Outside of Prison Walls

When someone is sentenced to a jail term, the people left on the outside feel as lost at times as the person serving their term. In many cases, the inmates are left without visits from family and friends because of the amount of time it takes to visit jails. In many cases, the inmate is moved far away from their home and far away from family. When this happens, the inmate suffers due to the lack of visitations from loved ones.


Securus understands the consequences from the lack of visits and contact with people on the outside and they have hope that they can help families visit easier as well as a cheaper way of visiting. The amount of money that is used for gas, lunches and more adds up over time and therefore this causes a financial burden on the loved ones as well. Securus Technologies is working to help to bring inmates and families closer through the use of video. A remote visit is set up to allow inmates time to visit with family members and this helps to keep the inmate from relapsing over time when they are released from their jail term.


In many cases, when a inmate is serving time and families are unable to visit frequently, the inmate feels as though they have lost faith and more likely to reoffend when they enter society once more. With Securus Technologies, the hope is to eliminate re-offenses as well as to keep crime rates down.


The technology that will be set up will allow inmates the ability to connect outside of the prison walls and to be able to attend family events through the use of web conferencing. They also have came up with the way to keep contraband phones that are inside jail houses to not be able to connect with those outside of the walls by creating a barrier that keeps phones from accessing mobile signals inside the jail. This helps to keep control of phones to a limit by establishing the grounds to keep calls secure when in jail.

Giant Killer Takes On Nationals

Orange County College’s legendary rowing team sets out for Nationals at Lake Lanier on May 25. Los Alamitos High School graduate Daniel Amado is 22 and now captain of the novice team. In high school, he faced devastating news when he broke a disk in his back and had to quit rowing.

Only this year was he finally able to return to his calling: rowing. Amado attributes his determination and mental strength to the skills rowing instilled in him. In the future, he hopes to join the University of Washington’s amazing rowing team.

The men’s assistant coach, Steve Morris, had dedicated years to coaching and helps the boys n the rowing team. August through May, six days a week, he is climbing in the car and making the tedious drive from Rancho Santa Margarita to Newport Harbor.

In the 1990s, Morris was the head couch but decided to take a smaller role in the rowing team once he had a wife and kids. That said, he still plays an important part in the team’s success and is able to balance his day job, family, and love for the sport of rowing. Morris was the coxswain when he attended Orange Country College and in his day was called the John Wooden of rowing.

In the last 60 years, the school has earned 11 national titles, one of which was just in the last year. They have also produced olympic athletes and students who go on to compete in world championships. This is especially impressive considering many of these students had no rowing experience before joining the team. Learn more about Orange Coast College: http://www.orangecoastcollege.edu/academics/class_schedule/Pages/default.aspx and http://orangecoastcollege.edu/enrollment/admissions/Pages/default.aspx

They then go on to attend schools such as UC Berkley, University of Washington, Stanford and Boston University. That is not to say it’s easy to be a rower. They spend about 20 hours a weeks enduring grueling training and many participants drop out before the season is done.

OCC will go against 40 schools with older teams that have trained twice as long at four year universities at Nationals. They hope their nickname, “Giant Killer”, will be applicable once more.

Orange County College is located in Costa Mesa, minutes away from the California beaches. It is one of the largest community colleges, enrolling over 25,000 students each semester. OCC has the highest number of transfers to the University of California and California State University systems. It also provides over 135 academic and career programs in order to lead its students to success.
