Wisdom is something that often comes when people get out and try something new. In one way or another people are going to have to branch out, do things they have never done and make waves in order to learn what they are good at. Doe Deere is something that started on eBay, but she realized that this was not for her. She also formed a clothing line at one time, but she would realize that this was not what she wanted to do for life. She was wise enough to see that there was a future in cosmetics with her Lime Crime brand, and that is what she would pursuit.
When Doe Deere started the Lime Crime brand in 2008, almost a decade prior, she was told that she would never be able to successfully sell cosmetics online. Doe Deere stated that experts in the cosmetics field stated that cosmetics would only work in brick and mortar stores because people wanted to try the makeup on. She listened to what these so-called experts were saying, but she did not let this change her mind about what she wanted to do. She brought forth a standard, and she moved forth to build a very colorful brand of cosmetics that would make people see lipstick in a whole new way. She knew that she had something to offer, and she believed that she could do this with Generation Z. She felt that since she was now in an era of consumers that grew up with computers and the Internet that there was a greater chance to reach more people through social media.
The experts may have predicted the old trends of how consumers used to purchase makeup, but Doe Deere has obviously predicted brand new trends. She has become the leader that would reach out to the Generation Z crowd and market her brand successfully. It did not really matter much that others may not have believed in what she could do. What Doe Deere realized was that she had a vision, and she wanted to carry this vision out. She wanted to create the ultimate shopping experience for consumers that were looking for the most obscure concepts in cosmetics. Online shoppers of brands like Lime Crime would be able to see others wearing this makeup through Instagram. These are the types of social media campaigns that would build brand awareness.

How This All Started Out
The most important thing to understand about Evolution of Smooth is that this brand was created by people who clearly understood exactly what they were trying to get when they decided they wanted to enter the lip balm market. They didn’t want to simply make a product that had no chance of taking the top prize. They wanted something that would compete and they found that something in Evolution of Smooth. Target young women specifically; this brand managed to make itself something that nobody would have expected it to become.
How Young Women Made It Blow Up
Many people assumed prior to the research conducted by Evolution of Smooth that lip balm was used by men and women in similar rates. This was proven false by the research that Evolution of Smooth conducted. Women are using lip balm at far higher rates than men even though the products they use are not actually intended for their exclusive use. Creating a brand with a focus on Millennial women was a natural choice and it’s clear that the results have paid off big time for EOS lip balm.
The Future Of Evolution Of Smooth
The future of Evolution of Smooth (https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/) is in the creation of new products aimed at taking over new markets. Their efforts have focused on the creation of lotions and shaving creams around the Evolution of Smooth brand on Costco. This has been successful so far, but they want to aim for something much greater in the future. There is simply too much to gain and too little to lose. When you build a brand this great most people expect the ability to enjoy what they have made. Evolution of Smooth is all about changing how we think about lip balm for good.
This marks the 45th year that the best architects and designers in the United States renovate one of the most expensive homes in New York. This time, it was a 35-foot-wide townhome worth $26.8 million and built by Charles Platt. The location was previously the China Institute in America. The experts who works on the home remodel were asked about common interior design mistakes that men make, and here are a few helpful tips they provided.
Designer Richard Mishaan recommends showcasing souvenirs and unique treasures you’ve collected from traveling abroad. He shares that an animal skin rug or a mask of cultural significance make for interesting conversation pieces and can lend a pop of color and character to any room in the home. While these items can give the impression that you’re well-traveled and have a modern sense of style, it’s best not to showcase certain souvenirs, like the collection of shot glasses you collected during spring break.
Mishaan has also recently released his second book “Artfully Modern,” in which he showcases some of his most impressive work. While the veteran designer often works with very wealthy clients, and even worked on revamping the suites at St. Regis in 2010, he advises against spending too much money when it’s not necessary.
Richard states that it actually bothers him when clients decide not to use an accessory or furniture piece because it isn’t expensive enough. Mishaan asserts that finding the right design (Bendheim.com) is more about having an eye for pieces that will work, and doesn’t have to involve spending lots of money. Even though Mishaan uses some of the finest materials to craft specialized decor for clients, he admits that he’s had the same couches for over 20 years. His Greenwich Village design store, Homer, also sells a number of quality home decor items for under $100, which is beneficial for those who want to get a few signature pieces to complete a room’s unique or colorful decor.
You might not be in the same class as event planners in NYC; but you can create a very captivating, memorable and comfortable social gathering in your own home by beginning with these 3 things:
SUBHEADING: Organization is Key
This is something that very successful people do all the time; make lists. Ideally, you want to a master list with such items as ‘Invitations’ and ‘Food’ and ‘Beverage’ etc. The master list then lets you create the other lists which will be much more detailed. With the ‘Sub-list’ of’Beverage,’ for example, You could make a check list of the types of beverages, ice, glassware, large serving bowl or just an open bar and bring to mind even the simplest but, important things such as, ‘Where am I going to put trash cans if I’m using plastic cups?’
SUBHEADING: Keep It Simple
If you keep the plan for your party, or an important social gathering with a need to impress, simple; there is less that can go wrong. You can always add something later, but whatever event your planning, the key is the execution. If it’s too complex and one thing falls flat it will create a domino effect.
Unless this is a mystery theater type event or something that it is really focused on the entertainment; you don’t want to overwhelm your guests. Let them relax and engage in conversation with each other. In a relaxed and natural, a more ‘Open’ atmosphere, there is a better chance that your guests that have never met before will become involved in conversation and get to know each other.
SUBHEADING: Corporate Events or Other Large Scale and Focused Events
