HIGH HEEL

NEW STILL STANDING® SPRAY A REVOLUTIONARY NEW BREAKTHROUGH FOR HIGH HEEL & STILETTO LOVERS LAUNCHES AT NEWBEAUTY AT FRED SEGAL

 The First and Only Product of Its Kind:

A Spray that Keeps Your Feet Comfortable While Wearing The Highest Heels Longer To Prevent “Stiletto Suffering”

With all the agony that high-­‐heel-­‐wearing women have suffered over the years, it’s surprising that no one thought of this before. New Still Standing® Spray does what many gel insoles and flower inserts try to do but don’t. It actually prevents the discomfort caused by standing, walking or just wearing high heels or stilettos. As a result, feet feel just as good after an hour and a half as they did when you first put on your shoes.  It stops “Stiletto Suffering™” before it starts.

 Still Standing® is a natural, patent-­‐pending proprietary formula spray made of cooling menthol and Certified Organic eco-­‐distilled™ Arnica, Aloe and Ilex. These three herbal remedies are time-­‐tested natural anti-­‐inflammatories and pain relievers. The eco-­‐distillation™ process insures that the resulting herbal extracts have the highest potency and efficacy. Along with other ingredients including Vitamin E and Tea Tree Oil, they come together in a greaseless, colorless, stain-­‐free spray that keeps feet feeling great (the menthol scent quickly vanishes after a few minutes).

How It Works

Still Standing® does not numb your feet. Instead it works to prevent the unpleasant cycle of stiletto-­caused foot discomfort from beginning in the first place.

HIGH HEELS still-standing-spray

 * The results of a survey of 4000 British women reported in the Telegraph in November, 2010, found the average woman began experiencing foot pain 34 minutes after she stepped out of a taxi and into a pub or club. More than 50% say they have walked home barefoot.   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/8163117/34-­‐minutes-­‐the-­‐time-­‐it-­‐takes-­‐for-­‐ new-­‐shoes-­‐to-­‐pinch.html

When you first put on your heels, your feet feel fine. But because your feet are put into an unnatural position by high heeled shoes, they get irritated, red and hot after a while.* Your shoes feel tight as all the pressure points (that reflexologists tell us exist in our feet) get squeezed and everything feels worse. The ingredients in Still Standing® keep your feet calm and cool so Stiletto Suffering™ never starts. Your feet feel like they do when you first put on your shoes.

Directions

Still Standing® should be generously sprayed on the top, sides and bottom of your feet prior to putting on your shoes. It is important to let it dry which takes a few minutes. The large size features eco-­‐friendly,

non-­‐aerosol, continuous spray technology. This delivers the most potent, highly-­‐penetrating mist from any angle, making it easy to use. It comes with a purse size for touch-­‐ups on the go, which will be needed generally in 2 to 4 hours depending upon the person. If you have open blisters or cuts on your feet, you should not use the product.

Will It Take Care of All Shoe-­‐Caused Foot Pain and Problems?

No. It’s designed to be used with shoes that fit properly and will not help or prevent blisters. If when you first put on your shoes, they immediately pinch, rub or cut into your foot, Still Standing® will not solve your problem.

What’s Still Standing®’s Story?

Lyn Butler, a former Emmy award winning TV producer, is the beauty product lover behind Still Standing®. A self-­‐confessed cosmetic junkie and solution-­‐seeking researcher, she has spent a great deal of time and effort on various beauty challenges. Initially, she says, “out of pure self interest.”

“Some people devote their lives finding out about things like the Higgs Boson, I’m much more practical. I look for solutions to the problems that aggravate me. And the fact that my favorite and most flattering shoes made me miserable after less than an hour was very aggravating!”

It took nearly three years to get Still Standing® to market. Just launched, it is currently now sold at NewBeauty at Fred Segal and on the web at www.StillStandingSpray.com. And plans are in motion to have it available in high-­‐end shoe salons and exclusive retail stores. The set of the large and the mini travel size retail for $27.99, with four beautifully boxed travel sized minis selling in an On The Go Set for $19.00. Lyn also writes a blog entitled “Stiletto Solution” which provides an amusing look at shoes, beauty and fashion along with practical tips and solutions.

All Beauty, LLC launches a skincare drink formulated for skin health and beauty from within. Available in New York, South Florida, on Amazon, and growing (with more locations coming soon) this beverage brings into focus the fact that what one puts into their bodies has a profound effect on skin (proper hydration and nutrition), vs just thinking about beauty from a topical regimen. We believe in “beauty from within”.

All Beauty Water is a refreshing and delicious tasting drink, which makes it easy and enjoyable to hydrate and nourish skin from within.

All the ingredients in All Beauty Water were selected because research has shown these ingredients to support healthy looking skin. Some of the benefits of water, SkinVitamins® and SkinNutrients® include: helps hydrate, increase elasticity, replenish skin cells, help skin look younger, helps fight premature wrinkles, helps fight oxidation brought on by free radicals, helps stimulate collagen production, helps skin heal and repair.

Our Mission:

All Beauty is a lifestyle brand that aims to encourage individuals to think of their beauty and skincare from within – what you put into your body will affect your skin – by creating delicious products that both hydrate and nourish skin.

How we got started?

We started All Beauty with the dream of encouraging people to make the connection between what they put into their bodies and their looks. Camille Varlet, the founder, came up with the idea when she noticed her friends all talking about seeing signs of aging and yet they all were drinking diet soda- they thought water was “boring”, had “no flavor” or was “not refreshing”. She found this to be a disconnect between how people think about their looks and what they put into their bodies. Finding a solution is what inspired her to launch All Beauty Water. She wanted to create a healthy, delicious tasting and 0 calorie alternative to sugary drinks or beverages that are artificially formulated, with added skin benefits (all the ingredients in All Beauty Water have research showing they have various skin health benefits).

Camille Varlet, the founder of All Beauty Water, worked in brand management at Dannon & L’Oreal before starting to develop & launch All Beauty Water. She is half French, half Italian, and moved the US when she was 9.

Makeup. Letting Beauty Blossom Naturally.

The same delicate flower wax coating that protects flower petals from the wind and sun is infused into Ecco Bella FlowerColor Make Up. The pigmented powders beloved by make up artists create a protective layer that keeps natural moisture at bay so the look stays fresher, longer.

Though strides have been made in recent years to address the lack of colour on the runways, race remains a touchy subject within the fashion industry.

In an effort to tackle the issue head on, the Council of Fashion designers of America (CFDA) held a panel discussion in New York recently on the subject led by industry activist Bethann Hardison. With heavyweights like Prabal Gurung, Edward Emninful, casting director Anita Britton, Elle’s Samira Nasr and Laird+Partners’ Hans Dorsinville participating in the conversation, the scene was set for a lively exchange, through the resulting candid manner in which the talk played out.

“It has been something that concerns me as I grew up in the industry,” Hardison, a pioneer of diversity in fashion said at the discussion, according to a blog on the CFDA website.

“The fashion industry has struggled a great deal with diversity,” the former model added. “If television can be diversified, so can we.”

Hardison pointed to the late 1980s and early 1990s as a moment in fashion when the ethnic makeup of modeling began to diversify, but that didn’t last long, prompting Naomi Campbell and Talley to approach her with the plea to champion change. The first town hall meeting on the topic was held in 2007.

A takeaway was how different people have different takes on diversity, which can range from models and designers to age and size.

Bitton, a native of England, recalled how, when she started out back home, “It wasn’t a question of race but class. I came to New York very neutral and green. There’s a lot to be said for the word inclusive.”

Enninful said that when he plans a shoot, he looks for a character that fits the concept. “Beauty for me is beauty — whether it’s black or it is Asian, it doesn’t matter for me. I only use whoever is right for the story.”

Dorsinville said there is a “continuum” from runway to advertising—when it’s a mass brand, there is an opportunity to create a campaign feature a diverse group of multiple models, whereas a designer may just be looking for a face – a muse – to represent the brand, limiting options.

Gurung added that “Race is an issue that is not just in fashion. We need to address that immediately. As a designer, I want to work with the best girls, who are the best girls for me. Sometimes, an agent says ‘If you want this black girl, you have to use this white girl,’ whom I may not like.”

“Diversity, not just in race but also age and size, is very important to me,” he added.

Nasr, who is Lebanese and Trinidadian, said the issue of diversity reaches beyond models, and includes the designer community and other professional fashion environments. Addressing the audience, which also included models of diverse backgrounds and modeling agents, she noted, “This is most colorful room I ever seen in the fashion industry, and I want to say if we want to have change, we need to grow this room.”
