Pia Muehlenbeck is celebrating the first birthday of her brand Slinkii Athletic by shutting up shop for ten days, using the opportunity to send a powerful message about saving the planet we live in. 

The influencer with over 825,000 followers is closing her online store after its busiest month to date as she would instead like us to focus our energy into helping the environment by planting trees. 

Explaining that we are making food unsustainably and chopping down trees to allow animals to graze, Pia is calling upon her fans, followers and customers to help her initiative because “If the human race don’t start to make a change and actively start to plant trees, our main source of oxygen will simply diminish.” (more…)

Robyn Lawley Explains How We Can ‘Prepare’ for Post-Baby Bodies

Robyn Lawley has further explained the decision to reveal her stretch marks saying it was a bid to start the conversation on post-baby bodies and help future mothers feel prepared for the changes they are about to face.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia at Maxim Australia‘s Hot 100 party last night, the Aussie model explained that seeing other post-baby bodies will help women come to terms with the bodily changes which follow pregnancy and birth. “No one sees post-body after baby and I think had I seen it, I’d be more prepared.

Tyra Banks has already done so much for mankind. She taught us how to smize, created America’s Next Top Model, gave us a daily dose of Chrissy Teigen’s humor on her talk show and the list goes on. She’s continuing to use her powers for good with a campaign that sells eyeshadow and, get this, fights cigarette smoking.

“Smoke Your Eyes, Not Cigarettes” is a new collaboration between Tyra Beauty and truth, the organization behind all those scary anti-smoking commercials. It features a Smoky Smize kit ($89) with a mascara, lipstick, eye highlighter, eyeshadow palette and a limited-edition makeup bag that reads, “The only things I smoke are my eyes.” The palette, brilliantly dubbed the “Smoky Smize,” includes four wet/dry smoky shades with names like “Light ‘Em Up” and “Smolder,” and a unique angled brush. Using the Smoky Smize palette, shoppers are encouraged to give themselves a “TYover” (duh a Tyra makeover) for the holidays and recreate her “Sexy Smokeshow” look. (more…)
