March has been a busy month. Some great things have been in the news that make us smile for the good things folks are doing.

Following Edgar Scissorhands making his Super Cruise debut at the Super Bowl, Cadillac invited the Jonas Brothers, Tiffany Haddish, Sofia Vergara, Joe Manganiello and tWitch and Allison Boss to experience the technology for the first time. Their experiences were captured as curiosity turned to freedom when they took their hands off the wheel, let the vehicle navigate the road and tried the Lane Change on Demand functionality. 

Super Cruise uses real-time cameras, sensors and GPS, paired with LiDAR map data and a driver awareness system to provide drivers a greater sense of confidence when travelling hands-free on enabled roads.  

In Manhattan, La Pera Projects is exclusively partnering with NeueHouse Madison Square to launch its first Arts Program called “Transitions” until April 16th with the aim to support and showcase international emergent talent from New York. The one-month artists’ residency will culminate with a three-week exhibition of the works created at the studios provided by NeueHouse. Framed under the idea of transition, the curatorial theme is an attempt to materialize and reflect the current times we live in from the angle of the infinite possibilities brought by creativity. 

Alongside the work of guest curator Edoardo Cozzani (Italy), La Pera Projects will present artists Kyoko Hamaguchi (Japan), Jean Oh (USA), and Johanna Strobel (Germany), all in a joint conversation revolving around the concept of transition through the lens of creativity.

Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone, kicked off a great week to bring grounded travelers everywhere a “Taste of Australia!” To help keep the dream of Australia alive while borders remain closed, he helped launch a one-of-a-kind virtual experience in where he demonstrated three dishes inspired by his experiences filming in Australia, for participants everywhere to recreate in their own home with work featured on Australia.com.

Another highlight was Ticket2Events #funinthesun experience for Bravo Dallas Housewives in Delray Beach. Producers Sean Koski and Brian Kelly of Ticket2Events, created a sharable event at The Seagate Hotel & Spa in Florida with hosts LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra, who traveled safely for the day.

To kick off their adventure the gals, with Steamline luggage in tow and PlaneAire sanitizer in hand, showcased how to complete a germ free flight to Delray Beach, FL. The #funinthesun for LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra seemed to continue effortlessly for days and with nods to Hydralyte the electrolyte powder that rehydrates faster than water.

On International Women’s Day, Emma Loewe moderated a virtual panel with Alysia Reiner, Marci Zaroff, and others along with Women’s Earth Alliance and YES AND. Each panelists dedicated their lives to the sustainability movement and they spoke about the importance of women’s empowerment in the global sustainability narrative and how we can all shop sustainably.

And coming up on March 25, For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation will host their first ever virtual experience. TV personality and Big Brother host Julie Chen Moonves to emcee the evening with performances by Darius Rucker; Dierks Bentley; Jon Pardi; Hamilton’s Mandy Gonzalez; Tony Award nominated actress Laura Osnes; Broadway Veteran Hugh Panaro; and PS22 Chorus of Staten Island. Guest appearances include Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Fran Drescher, Maria Bello, and more. The event’s honorary chairpersons are Erin & Steven Selcher and Kate & Jerry Hathaway.

Simmer and sip all of their wonderful offerings that promote wellness and comfort as well as help boost immune systems and your mental and physical health.

Nicole and Zac together out of love created this fantastic brand that also has a giveback component.

“We love bees, and we can’t live without them. We know bees are dying all over the world. Our mission is to save the bees through teaching others about how they can help,” they state. “Each year, we allocate funds from sales of all products to pay for the creation of the beehives we plant. We buy and lend gear to new students that want to learn, until they’re interested enough to buy their own. Each yard maxes out at about 25 hives at a cost of about $30 to $50 each (depending on materials and how many boxes are added). During harvest, we bring the community together, provide a honey extractor, wax removers etc so everyone can learn the full process. Students provide their own ball jars, buckets etc so they can take what they want home. We then show the students how to package the excess for retail if they wish. With every purchase, you help make all of the above happen. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

For Perfect Summer Hair –

Peter Coppola is a fantastic woman-owned company named after the famous stylist who developed keratin systems, Peter Coppola. Offering more than just treatments, the company showcases a vast array of products that you will fall in love with.

Some highlights we love are Total Repair Smoothing Shampoo, which instantly repairs your hair. The deeply moisturizing sulfate-free shampoo weightlessly strengthens, smooths, and restores lackluster locks with a unique blend of Keratin and Ceramides. The protection to combat humidity of the season is fantastic along with color vibrancy throughout the day. We also love the Infusion Anti-Frizz Cream, which keeps hair tidy, shiny and soft-to-the-touch with ultra-lightweight cream. Infusion Anti-Frizz Cream keeps curls under control and cuts blow-dry time while creating a barrier to block humidity for hair that is sleek and smooth until your next shampoo.

 

NEKKO is a pioneer of scalp and hair treatments geared toward achieving healthy and voluminous results. Believing in the principle that we must not neglect the scalp’s health and vitality; they showcase products that are meant to enrich with a carefully selected blend of plant-based ingredients and amino acids, strengthen and fortify hair and scalp with regular use,

NEKKO Scalp Oil makes a difference for those with a variety of hair issues. Cold-pressed to make for a gentle peeling effect and to purify the scalp, it removes loose dandruff flakes from the hair. This unique formula also works to regulate oily scalps. Delicately cleanses and moisturizes the scalp, which is important so much more in the summer as we expose ourselves to more sweat outdoors. You will love the way your hair feels over a few weeks.

For the Perfect Summer Manicure –

Radiant Cosmetics viral Nail Growth Oil lives up to all the hype.

Founder and TikTok influencer Ruth Ismayelyan and her vegan brand have overwhelmingly captivated beauty enthusiasts for good reason. Her cuticle oil has a unique formulation that after using in a week creates a noticeable difference. Nails look shinny and they start to grow in stronger. The results are really that quick. Nourishing your nails has never been easier and the vitamins in the formula also give a great boost to your overall nail health.

Ruth’s brand has also expanded to lipsticks, lip liners, and lash and brow serums. Products are cruelty-free, paraben-free, vegan, and non-GMO.

Zoya has the perfect polish shades to achieve the classic and beachy vibe for you any day this season. From colors that elevate summer to a product that lasts and shines through with true beauty, we adore everything about this brand.

Shades such as Lillian with a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish and Lauren with warm, pink-kissed light beige with very fine gold and copper metallic shimmer are our favorites. They are elegant and fun. To add to the joy is the fact that Zoya is non-toxic and cruelty-free.

For Perfect Summer Social Media Posts –

KISS is set to make all your summer social media posts look radiant. The newest lash collection, designed for a “no makeup, makeup” aesthetic with full sets and a brand-new half lash style is perfect for summer. This trend is about flawlessly imperfect lashes, featuring uneven, sparsely distributed lash patterns for a remarkably natural effect.

We love the way they are easy to apply, comfortable, and incredibly easy to apply. The lash lift effect emphasizes a longer and fuller lash look. Best of all the brand is cruelty free, vegan friendly, and good for contact lens wearers.

This salt is designed to provide a soothing and restorative experience, promoting well-being and skin vitality. Crafted with 100% magnesium chloride for a relaxing bath or foot soak.

Reveka Skincare’s Tea Tree + Peppermint Body Bar is a perfect way to find balance and beauty for your skin. Developed by a woman named Darlene who understands the deep principles of clean and healthy skincare products through the benefits of topical magnesium, this soap is a gamechanger this summer season. Reveka is crafted with clean ingredients including no preservatives or dyes and are 100% made in the U.S. The rich lather of Reveka’s soap makes it perfect for shampoo, soap, and shaving cream. It’s made with tea tree, peppermint and shea butter and will hydrate your skin to the next level.

And the best part is the Magnesium Chloride from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed. Two weeks of use and you will see the difference ass use promotes new tissue growth and can help alleviate common skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.
