"All right. . So normally, , we always start out with skincare. . We know that you guys are huge skin care junkies, , but there's so much news make up that. . Honestly we have to give it some love straight off the top, , and we're going to start with none other than rare beauty, , the new line by Selena. . Gomez. . Okay. So . I did not get my package a curly, , and so I'm very excited to hear what you thought of the line and what you think the winners are and just definitely part of this bigger trend we're seeing right of so many celebrities launching makeup lines right now. . Yeah it's. . True I feel like they used to be kind of like on the poster to represent like a new lipstick or something in these big campaigns, and , now it's as though they've stepped out of the frame and they're really owning their own lines it really you know with Selena Gomez I know that health is a topic that's really close to her heart. . So we know that one percent of the proceeds from this whole line is going toward increasing access to mental health services. . So I, , think just having like so much more integrity behind his lines as what makes them not just a flash in the pan. . Committed to one hundred, , million dollars over the next ten years. . So that's a pretty big deal that's super exciting, , and of course, , we know that Sephora, , is behind this line as well. . It's exclusive to Sephora so although it's not one of the Kendo brands. . So to speak I, , feel like you know Sephora they get all that Intel from their customers they know what they want and they really brought a lot of I would say like. . Thoughtfulness, , to these formulations, , I think that's where a rare beauty really wins. . Okay. . So let's hear about it because I know a lot of people were kind of comparing it to fantasy like one what's been your experience so far? ? What's what have you been? ? Loving. . So my favorite product from the lot is the rare beauty liquid touch weightless foundation, , and so that's the one everyone's going to compare it Fendi. . It has forty eight shades except this one is only twenty nine dollars, , which is cheaper than the fence is thirty eight dollars <hes> Canadian, , and of course, , it launched just at the beginning of September I really love it. . So first of. . All just tell you like what it is. . It's meant to be a lightweight valuation that goes on Super. Naturally . but it has quite a bit of pigment to it. . So it will give you a medium to full coverage finish and I think we're all familiar with the bottle. . We've probably seen it on instagram. . It's as beautiful like it's got the sculptural shape to it. . So it then bottle and then it has like this white ball on the top definitely GonNa look good on your shelf e and when you open it, , what's really unique is its got this gigantic doe foot applicator like it almost reminds me of the applicators of those. . Big Conceal that were coming ask chair. . Yeah. Yeah . and it's meant to be like a Serum Foundation. . So you actually shake it and you can hear that click, , click click inside and I'll be honest I've tried serum foundations in the past and I don't typically like them usually they come with a dropper and although there really lightweight there's like a slickness and an oiliness to it that I just do not like I I feel like that was like a a flash in the pan kind of a gimmick that I don't think those are going to last but this one goes on and it feels more just like a very lightweight almost. . Watery Foundation without having any oiliness to it, , but it is quite pigmented. . So what you're going to do is you're gonNA put dots on your face like in the main areas where you won't coverage for me that would all over my tease own and then I, , just used my beauty blender and blended in as usual and I really found it had a very natural second skin effect. . So it's not particularly Matt it's not particularly Dewey it just looks Berry Notch, , draw it kind of reminded me of the Bite Beauty Foundation that I really fell in love with lots year that all clocks right because it likes under Sephora I'm sure they definitely Yeah, , armed each other. . Well, , I mean Sephora. . So as an example, , Nour's launched a soft Matte Foundation <hes> this fall as well, , and the publicis actually told me that that was in collaboration with Sephora and that they were using all of the feedback from their customers to tell them what they wanted <hes>. . So that was a very different foundation. . It's quite matt more like the Charlotte Tilbury airbrush break by yes. . A We know that they're kind of feeding into that and that just makes sense I mean Celinas. . Not a makeup artist. . Maybe, she , has van Gogh helping our, , but obviously, they're , going to be using the power of their knowledge to create these formulas. . So I love this foundation I think it's so natural. . This is like a new favorite for me but I think it's really representative of the line like what I noticed just having tried quite a few products is that it's like taking existing ideas like for example, , the lip souffle Matt lip cream we all know a liquid matlab color, , but this one just went on, , it gives you a soft finish. . And it's so comfortable. But . what I liked is it wasn't thick. . So they managed to get that pigment without having that thickness like I can never get a clean line with a Matt liquid color. . I always have to use my finger to blended then and then you don't get that that nice shape to it. . So this when you do so everything was like, , yes already out there but this is so thoughtful and it's just slightly better

Yeah. redecorate learn to make jewelry start painting I. Don't know what your lingo and like starting to learn a new language like masterclass Yeah Yeah I'm sorry though I think that this this. Question just. I think is. Really really. Makes me think of that article I think it was in the New York. Times awhile awhile ago about how like that? Feeling that we're all experiencing right now is grief and she's grieving her dream job because this pandemic just like came for everything. Truly yeah. I'm sorry. Seem should we wrap it up on a couple of lighter notes? Yeah. what are your favorite school supplies? So minor really simple I have a notebook and like a spiral bound notebook. So I have one page for every day of the week I started a new list right now I have Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and I like put all the tasks that I have to do on that list and then the opposite page take notes and that's that works really good for me and then I can read the page when I'm done with it and don't need anymore rip it out I rip it out Oh my God. That's so savage. Yeah, it feels good. Oh Bother you that the the spine then has like those spiky pages hanging, pull those out. Okay. Yeah and my favorite I talked about my we were talking about school supplies little earlier I love my rifle paper pen. It has palm leaves all over. It's so pretty but the ink in the way that writes Israeli nice and then I love those little stickers like I feel like I'm always looking at magazines and the Lucky magazine sticker there's a little tab stickers I. Love Those Okay and those. Just make me happy because I feel like I you've seen my coffee table but collection like I'm constantly one of my and magazines to my favorite thing to do is to not look at the computer and like look at a coffee table book or a magazine to get some inspiration and I like to use those little stickers to mark things down Mike Waleed boxes full of them Oh yeah I was I don't have a lot of school supplies. It's just my favorite pen, my notebook and Those little stickers? I put this question here? So I can talk about posted all my God I knew it i. I. Don't know I haven't talked about them in like a year. Maybe there's New People here who don't know how how committed I am to large lined. Extra long large. They look like a little note pad and is really funny going over her house because she has their everywhere the and they're always like perfectly straight, and then you're writing is perfectly straight and I call them her serial killer notes do yes. So I I am a devotee to large lined post. It notes it's probably like the size of four. Regular poster notes and I think it's the perfect size for a to do list they come and fun colors I. Always have them and I write my daily to do list on it and sometimes, I write my Jewish out multiple times because it annoys me once I cross off too many things and it looks messy because my serial killer notes needs to be neat. They're all and all, and I can't function without them. I also will only use one type of pen. It is the sharpie pen. Not, a sharpie marker it is like the fine tap sharpie pen I like those so also come in colors but I will not right with anything else I have tons of them on my person at any given time I mean not during Cova because I don't carry a purse anymore but in real life I'd always have them with me. And friend Allie got me what ended up being such a lovely birthday gift she. So sometimes, I get really stressed out or have a lot going on and especially when we're in post production for ROM COM PODS I in addition to my post, it notes I need a legal pad because I have too much to write down and I need more space and so my friend Ali for my birthday. Got Me A. Beautiful Nice Legal Pad, not just like the crummy staples kind and she got it from McNally Jackson I. Don't know the brand, but it's beautiful and so now it makes me happy to have a pretty legal pad as opposed to a budget one. That is so funny. But I love talking about school supplies. Any others want to have a ruler that says, fuck off on it I also have that but I broke it. What else do I have? My dinosaur highlighter makes pretty happy. Yeah I. Love highlighter I like the yellow just a regular old highlighter I. Don't think it's anything special. Yeah. Don't have schools of is somebody asked also about book rex for finding a new career path any book rex? No. Oh I would say, I, know business books but I don't think I have one about careers I don't have one specifically about careers either. But also to go back to what my tried and true recommendations I feel like you know host some dads like they're duct tape fixes anything I'm like you should read big magic big magic fixes anything. It's your duct tape or your window it's my windex. Yeah. So I honestly think that like reading big magic wouldn't be a bad move. Great by Elizabeth Gilbert.

I especially like the ones where some of them are more advice based about like buying a home or things like that but sometimes they have on guests to talk about their personal finances in it is so interesting and voyeuristic like Ingrid Nelson came on. Who's like a youtube person? And she like she. Flat out shared her salary. Like it's so interesting and it's so interesting to think about how how other people view money. I'm really into this podcast. And he's listen to that one. I really like it and on the other one that I'm really enjoying right now. Is Everything is fine. Which is Kim Francis? New podcast and Kim France was the founding editor at Lucky magazine which was very pivotal to me as a teenager. Yes love her love. That LOVES THEM MAGAZINE. So much and the podcast is about women in their forty S. Which I or over forty which I am. Not but for some reason I still really love this podcast and I. It's just like a fresh perspective and I. I like hearing from her. What about you have you? What's your podcast time like? How been listening to many podcasts. Have been this really watching a lot of TV and movies. And I'm not really going anywhere especially since I haven't been feeling well but I would say I've listened to girl's gotta eat which has been fun. You know. I love them of course and G. Thanks I bought. It is great. I've been listening to that one. Otherwise mostly just like quality time with Jessica. Yeah I like that. She's now our friend that we don't refer to her first and last name. She's just Jessica. I think maybe I'll just call her jess. Yeah J. S. yes jess So you said you've been spending a lotta time watching TV. What are you watching? Oh so I've been rewatching gossip girl Greenwich. That is such a good decision. I was watching sex and the city and I switched to gossip girl. Sometimes I alternate between the two of them but is obviously great. It's very very fun. Just like looking at the fashion. It's an escape. What season are you on? I am on Season Two so. I really just started watching it yesterday. It's so good. Did you also see that they? There's going to be gossip girl reboot and they released the cast No but I I saw that but I haven't seen the CAST. It's different people. It's not Serena and Blair's with different characters but I think it's the same premise. Okay I very excited for the new one but I also think rewatching gossip girl. I think that's one of my comfort shows. It's a comfort show for sure. Also watching the blacklist little fires everywhere is great A lot of my audience told me to watch Brooklyn nine nine. I can't get into it. I'm not really like a Sitcom humor. Person I am but I didn't like that one either. Oh funny I just felt like the humor fell flat for me and I love Andy. Sandberg me to like. It was just like a little too absurdist humor. Maybe yeah it's not my sense of humor so wasn't into it but I am really excited. Show that's coming out this weekend is Amazon's making the cut. What's the end? It's with Tim Gunn and hiding. And it's a fashion competition show. So it's basically like project runway reboot without the same. Yes and the winner of whoever wins the show gets a million dollars man a million dollars and a collection with Amazon. Did you watch the Tan France? One on net flicks no. I've watched that either. That's on my list of maybes. I've heard it's really really good. I've heard it's it's similar to project runway but the people who are on the show are more legitimate like they are second in commands major design houses or people who have like real experience aren't just like fresh out of school or somebody who is designing clothes in their apartment. Yeah this one has a really legit cast of judges like Joseph Missouri is one Corinne Rothfield is widen Naomi Campbell. So it's like all star like judges that might be. I might get into the Tan France. One this week and then switched to that. This begun fashioned competition could be could be good. Yeah I feel like it's it's very escapist. Yeah and it's like light enough that you stressed about it. Oh you what the other show that. Everyone keeps telling me to watch is the great British baking show. Everyone says that and I also see memes about it where it's like. It's not just people who are really into baking. 'cause I hate baking but nothing about. The premise appeals to me same. Everyone says it. It's really soothing. Because I guess since they're British they're like really nice to each other and like really supportive in leg even though it's a competition I don't know I just. It doesn't appeal to me but everyone says I like it same. Yeah I'm with you. Yeah what about you? Oh so my binge so far was your recommendation. So I watched the morning show. I watch wait. How did you feel about the end? It was I really liked it. I liked the show. It was definitely not what I expected. For some reason. I thought it was more of like a Happy Sitcom show. Oh I don't know why like just from everything I'd seen about it. Yeah well the logo. Everything is so. I thought it was GONNA be a much happier show than it was. And it's it's kind of about like a fictionalized version of Matt Lauer and like the sexual abuse allegations at against him and yes so it was much more serious and intense than I thought but I loved it. I was super sucked into it. And I thought I mean obviously reese witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston great but also Steve. Carell was so great net yet. I watched the finale twice because it made me cry so hard that I had to watch it again. I didn't cry during it. I sobbed but I the whole thing. It was so good so good. I'm so glad you watched. I watched it all in like three days. Maybe not maybe like four but I. That was a great distraction. I mad that there's not more seasons of it so I can't really sink my teeth into it but I've also been watching little little fires everywhere. I have to watch the fourth episode tonight. And then I'm trying to figure out what my true quarantine binge-watch is so. I was talking to Alex and she was like you should watch the wire and I was like. I don't think that that's what I'm in the mood for. Yeah for that even though I haven't seen it in everyone's great and I trust them but yeah I'm like I don't think that's it. My my friend Maxi was very much a proponent of grey's anatomy and I was thinking about that but then I was like will that. Give me medical anxiety. Also I don't know I feel like I cried every episode of Grey's anatomy. When I was watching it I don't know if I can handle that much crying. I.
"lucky magazine" Discussed on Midlife Mixtape
"You could share your recommendation on social media and if you do that in tag me at Midlife tape. I'll send you a signed book plate put in the Front of your book. Hey everyone so. I'll just skip over the rules that I'm supposed to be on podcast hiatus because obviously that didn't stick especially when I heard from today's guest. Here's the deal. I recently bought a blush that I saw advertised on facebook and honest to God. I thought it was going to do everything that balance my checkbook. It said I was going to have smoother skin that it was a tone that was designed exactly for an aging woman that had just the right amount of gleam in it. I was so excited to get this stupid blush and three days after I started using it. I called my sister and I'm like dude. It's just a blush at. Why do I keep falling prey to this stuff? I feel like I'm more susceptible than ever to marketing around beauty and style products. That helped me maintain my sense of self. Let's say that's the generous way to put it and I'm hoping that I'm not the only one who needs a steady hand at the rudder to take us through this conversation about beauty and style in the years between being hip and breaking one but there was only one person I wanted to talk about this and it took a little bit to get the scheduling together.

Goop's Elise Loehnen on the benefits (and challenges) of a 'polarizing' brand
"At least welcome to the PODCASTS. Thanks for having me so you've been a coup for six years. I'm sure you run into people at parties and they're like goop. Oh my God. I've heard of it and they go into some sort of you know viral sensation and stuff like this but what what do you explain to them that that group is about what makes gook unique so it started out as a as a simple newsletter once a week out of Gwinnett kitchen in London in two thousand and eight just her experiences in the world she felt like she had access to incredible thinkers. Doctors healers and just experiences in general. We're all not what it was born out of the stuff that she was interested in and then by proxy the stuff that her friends were interested in and we haven't we've obviously grown significantly in the last past eleven years but it's essentially still kind of the same. We do content and food travel wellness. which is what? We're probably most known for beauty fashion but it comes from that place of open-mindedness and curiosity and asking questions so it was never a media the We don't report stories in a typical way where we go out and then craft things into a story we just ask people. We published straightforward. QNA's QNA's people can just get the information and decide for themselves. Yeah so talk about the challenge or you know there's there's there's always like opportunity and challenge on both sides of Having a personality at the center. Yeah I'm going to Paltrow is is a big personality One hundred percent probably recognition among The type of audience you're looking to attract But at the same time there it it comes with a challenge because this started as a personal rating and now it's not going to threaten all these articles. Yeah so obviously you as you can imagine their benefits and drawbacks the benefits being that we get at a tremendous amount of interest and attention for almost everything that we do And it brings you know she really is able to bring the spotlight and mainstream things that have existed for a long time. It might not yet. I'm part of popular culture and And I think as a as sort of an icon herself or an example of what it means to live like this it gives people sort of an immediate opportunity to understand some ways what the brand is about And then the drawbacks of course are that she is a public look person and people like to project things onto her and all their and that's part of our culture and that's that's fine project she's just polarizing for so many people That word comes up a lot. Yeah and you know as I think a lot of women are who are unapologetic about what they believe and who who they are in the world like. She's never asked for permission she's never said. Hey is it okay with everyone. If I'm no longer an actress and I become a business person and someone in media And then she's not she doesn't bow down like she's unwilling to sort of stop in the face of criticism and I think for a lot of women should come to represent what it means to continue to stand up for yourself and not be cowed and to like live and not discomfort. Is it any different being the the the chief content officer of a brand built around a personality than just to be of a brand not built around and personality. Yeah you know. I grew up at Lucky magazine. And it's funny because when lucky started it was also kind of polarizing people love to make fun of it and then it was the most accessible launch in the history of continent asked and the secret secret of lucky was that can France created a magazine that she herself wanted that her friends wanted and then sort of again it had that ripple all pool fact within media and at no point. Lucky that I am. I still here this sometimes when I go to media conferences and no point was there this sort of uttering of the audience. She is a woman named Gloria. Who Lives in Peoria and has two point three children and like this is what we're going to create for her? It came from inside like like it was Don in a way that wasn't Sort of prepackaged with this phantom person in mind it was done like sort of from the heart art as cheesy as that sounds and so because it starts with Gwyneth it's similarly like there are real people that are making the content and there are people who were specifically making it for when you're like if someone I don't know how the pitch process is but like does it go through like a test where you're like this isn't GP Is it any different like that. Then just like a brand. Because when you're figuring out what makes sense for brand there is some sort of primers around. I just wonder if it's different because like It's sort of has her endorsement right now. And I think that that's that's a really really good and interesting question and because one of the things that we do that obviously we get a lot of attention for as we write about practices that people find power and so like we're berry known in the culture for talking about Jada Aches and it was never that stuff that we do never prescriptive never like everyone needs to drop everything and go get a J. D. it was you know. Qna Hey with someone who found a lot of power in that practice and so like. I've never used one not the idea that you could It's that's not the idea of being prescriptive and sort of this is what we do therefore you need to do it to instead. We're sort of examining all of these things and saying some people find a lot of power in this practice and we're not gonNA shame these women or pass judgement on them you might might be resonant for you or something more Western might be more resonant for you so talk about the audience because you mentioned how goop can be polarizing. And that's that's obvious And I think a lot of people fixate on it and I think it. It doesn't really matter necessarily be as like a lot of the people that find it. Quote Unquote polarizing or controversial. Or something like this is probably not for them So who is it at four. You know I think I think it's seventy percent of our readers. Are Women. Actually a lot of men read the content male sex. There's a male section and a lot of the You know food travel a lot of the wellness non gendered and it's not supposed to be gendered but it is a primarily female audience And they typically are Affluent although there's a range to not as well I know people think it's only for wealthy women which is in Tracy Tracy Anderson. That's what we talked earlier about. The Tracy Anderson which is a high end studio. I guess if you charge it up money. It's not a gym. It's a studio but yeah so it's it's typically women. I think women have been largely ignored. That was another when I was at Conde I remember being twenty three twenty four and then editor there and realizing realizing that somehow I was target demo like how is it possible that I'm the target demo when I don't have any money and yet the sort of age out I'm out of the I'm forty I'm Outta the target demo and I have obviously have kids but I have more money than I had twenty years ago. That's for sure and yet so I think for a lot of women it's like. Oh suddenly not only sort of creeping towards the invisibility that seems apparently they say come with paramount PAS menopause deposit I'm not I'm a relevant to marketers and so I think that we And then when you compound on that the way that women are often ignored by their are doctors And sort of what's happening as we surge against the Patriarchy at all sort of starts to make sense so it's like a woman who I think has really come into her power. Who wants to be her own authority in her life? He wants to make those decisions unilaterally whether it's about travel or food and just wants the information who doesn't want to be told what to think but just wants information.
"lucky magazine" Discussed on Bad On Paper
"Interview. Yes so we're so excited shea. We have even Chen with us. Hi Eva Hi thanks for having me. We're so excited. So if anyone out there doesn't know who even as is first of all I don't know who you're following on instagram but she's the director of fashion partnerships at instagram where she acts as the go between for Silicon Valley in the fashion world. And she's also a children's book author. She writes children's books that use fashioned way to learn about important feminist throughout history so her first two books came out last steer and she has a new book out this fall and previously. She was the editor in chief Lucky magazine and the beauty and health director at teen folk and she was one of the youngest editors ever to lead an American magazine anecdotally. She's also one of my favorite people to follow on instagram. Stop to have you here. I'm so happy to be here right. Braved midtown traffic for this. Yeah that's not a minor thing a little bit of a beast stalling really appreciate and really happy to be here. Thanks for having me. We'll Eli so we introduced you but can you tell us a little bit in your own words about who you are. It is always so awkward to be introduced to hear yourself. Talked about like that Well I grew up here in New York City I have two kids that pretty much exhausts me. Twenty four hours a day and occupy like way too much of my mind. Even when I'm at work and I and I work at Instagram as you said but my like more than side-hustle which I probably shouldn't be saying unavowed cast but like my more than side. Hustle is reading these children's books which is really like a dream of mine come true The first one was called Gino. Valentine in the magical shoes and came out about a year ago and then I came out with companion book called A is for awesome. Which is Alphabet Book for kids of Twenty Three? Like amazing women from Oprah every book of minus like going any tab oprah basically Malala Emily Pankhurst who was a really important. suffragette in England The newest book Gino Valentine and the fantastic fashion. An adventure comes out at the end of October. Were so excited. He is weird that I'm excited about it. Even though I'm not a child and I don't have kids you know what's really funny like I will go to. You are like on book tour last year. I just assumed that. Like for a children's book book tour. It'd be like all kids and kind of tired yogurt covered MOMS but it would be really really interesting at every single book tour. Stop there literally be like fifty percent MOMS covered in yogurt and then fifty percent like twenty five year olds in like cute reformation dresses and so And the questions would always vary from like a three like five year world asking me. What my favorite snack was or my favorite color? Gummy bear to a twenty five year old. Who said what should I do with my career or should I don't this guy and so it's really great to have equal parts? My instagram like you know writer Dai followers and then this generation of young kids and hopefully their MOMS discovering covering the books. Yeah you love that so we wanted to have you talk a little bit about your career path and kind of where he how you got to where you are today. Oh I mean and I really think a lot of it has been like Very very like just all over the place I have to say like looking back at my career. I never had like a set plan enough what I wanted to be when I grow up or who I would be. I grew up here in New York City as a first generation. American child of immigrants I I went to an all girls school here in New York City that I felt like really Helped instill a sense of Women can do anything they in. I shouldn't have of any kind of preconceived notions of what a woman could or couldn't do. I went to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to study medicine because I always just thought. I don't know the immigrant experiences that like parents immigrant. Parents often want their kids. Do something really stable almost as like a reaction to the instability they made of encountered when they removed here And so I always thought like acceptable careers would be like Dr Banker Lawyer Engineer. Totally I grew up in the same way. And you know I didn't even realize that careers existed exactly like and so So I was pre med at Johns Hopkins and then one summer and did an internship ship at Harper's bazaar and I have had applied. I had a really bad like strategy. I basically applied to every internship at a company that I'd heard of every company any from like MTV to like you know Random House. Because I had seen the Random House logo on the back of all the books I loved And so basically. I got an internship at Harper's bazaar sorry that paid three hundred fifty dollars every two weeks. Oh my God. That's like that's unheard of in a magazine back then. I was just like this is an ungodly sum of money. Like you know which you for. I think it was twenty at the time I was just like what am I gonNa do with all this money. And he likened it all at Josh. Mitch Albom Gosh what went to Work there and it was like this like flame had ignited in my like heart in brain that was like I can't believe people do this like they put words together. They it's the book editors job to read books for a living and so I was split between assisting the features editor who was doing a lot of the book reviews and the Beauty Department And the books department like most of what I was doing was just organizing books which sounds like like not fun but truly is fun like Oh my God. I love organizing my every day. You when you're like you get one of those like you know paper cardboard mailers and then you tear are the tab and he book then you read the press release and then I would have to write on the spine. Thank the month and like the year it was coming out And then kind of organize it in the way. The book editor order liked it to be organized and the other half of my job was working in beauty which I always always loved not because I was particularly like the opposite of inapt apt not because ahead any particular aptitude for beauty. Like you guys are seeing me now. I'm not wearing any makeup on lake tired. Whatever you're doing something on the skin-care side looks great? I'm all about that. Go on instagram. And we're like no but that's how mine are too like. I feel like it's just like stuff that regular people can relate to. It was like at one point. I think I was like whatever it's fine you can. My eyeliner literally is like wobbling off my face into my hair line but And so I that's kind of what started my passion and love for you know writing and kind of put all the connected all these dots which I don't think it's the case for kids these days not not to say kids like their kids but like I think there's so much so many more ways to research including like you know mediums like this You know this conversation. We're having where people can and learn about different opportunities. You can follow authors on instagram. You can follow vets on instagram. Whatever you're interested in yeah you can find it through if you research but Dan? It's like you couldn't do that I worked in magazines for like a decade. I started in What I started started at lucky and the Goshen closet only worked there for a few weeks because it was like freelance rylands because it was freelance and then I got a job at Elle magazine? I worked there for three years and I worked for Teen Teen Vogue for seven years that I took some time off because My husband is a producer and he was doing a project out in L. A.. And so we moved to La Together for six months. I figured like Yolo. This this is before people said yellow but Yolo same sentiment. Yeah exactly whatever and then I moved to. La Lived there for a few months and came back to work unlucky lucky and worked at lucky for like year and a half or so and then had my daughter and then Left lucky had this amazing opportunity to work instagram. And that is my career in a nutshell. Why I'm so inspired? Also the fact that you had been in magazines and you decided to make a career change because I think so many people people are deterred. Where after twenty five? You can't twenty five. I don't know I got. I feel like twenty-five they're like I don't like you. You can change. It's fine he's GonNa be Hung up on like not being able to change after a certain point but we had Linda Wells on and she was like a chain of fifty obsessed with Linda. Will we love her. What like I mean just amazing But I feel like the people who are freaking out. The hardest about are on the younger side of my career. And I'm like girl girl here. Twenty four years old basically. My perspective is before the age of thirty. Like you need to not forget about your career and you just like you. I don't know like if you do a job from like twenty two twenty four and you hate it. Guess what you start again. When you're twenty four when you do a job from twenty to twenty six you like about it like guess? Guess what get another job like. It's I don't know I think it's because I've been everything from pre med to like I worked at a law firm called CRAVAT swain and more for like a a year in corporate mergers and acquisitions. Because I thought when I couldn't get a job in magazines when I graduated I was like Oh go to law school. You know and then I've just I've worked in interned in PR like have done consulting in Kind of digital content creation. Like I've done so many different things and none of the things that I've loved the most. I were not planned like I never went into light like the magazine industry being like I want to be an editor in chief one day. 'cause I also feel like the more you plan something like the nick. The more it'll get derailed and like the harder you fall not like Tony Orlando makes them sort of like you know mythology analogy of like caress or something but like basically it's like the more you play on like the more Y- it's meant to be derailed and that's the same thing like to use an analogy the moms listening like everyone like when Do you guys have kids now. There's this thing called like a birthing plan and so basically when people are pregnant some women will come come up to you and be like. Oh what's your birth plan. What an invasive question I know but it's like I will touch her stomach without asking you and then they'll be like birth planned? An birth plan is a document that you create that basically is like this is how I want my birth to go and literally like when I heard that I literally my is ruled so far back into into the back of like my cranium I was like birth lands do not work. They do not exist because basically it's not up to you the same way about like like your career. It's not fully in your hands. Of course there are things you can optimize. You can work your ass off you can Have a good.

It was literally like no no what he was friends who were burners didn't go this year yeah and none of the celebrities money there. They knew they knew also all next year. Last year was also a low year like when was last time there was like a lot of celebrities there at least get married. Are There Mary herself like five years before our podcast are that I think anyway there's the other event that Lindsey realized no one cared about this year was was fashion week. I think more people cared about it but it got. It got some very weird week. Coverage this year at the most like Ron Stories happen to us and we were pretty interesting like you know like something usually happens like somebody shows up or somebody walks something exciting and somebody does something expedience surprise appearance this it felt very slow or it's just like a lot of randolph came dressed interestingly. You know like there wasn't even the NAT like didn't last year like Ryota had a fashion show people cared about. She showed up to something. It's like they were they. Were Fun. Surprise Fries appearances this one whenever you search fashion week you go to Google you type in fashion we can news you hit return and it says people also searched for Janelle David Easson the top stories of Fashion Week Janelle Evans and her husband David Niessen so the two these two teen mom people bleakest one of the bleakest storylines lines on teen mom drew doubly guest maybe even Abraham with of honor filled with abuse stories and dog death. It's absolutely bleak think so these are the two that like the dog got dog died and all later and she blamed y'all got shot it. He shot the dog. We talked about about this but I don't know if we cut it. Maybe we did these two broke up. They got together. They lost custody gained custody and so now they're at fashioned or worked is they're working on their marriage and promoting their cosmetic line at fashion week. Here's some headline cosmetic lions here the headlines John Evanson David e center all smiles miles as they set front row at New York fashion week another another website teen MOMS stars Gino Evans and David hit and Y F W party after regaining custody of kids and then this one this wild thing move over Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid teen MOMS starch anelle Evans has arrived at New York Fashion Week and then radar and get to the point or quickly Jenolan David ten fashion in week runway show after custody nightmare and then TMZ journal Evanson Davies and pushing cosmetics at New York fashion week. We're fat and happy away from cameras and yet they're spending the entire time there in front of cameras because they need publicity. I'm so confused. I'm so confused. They're starting line is called J J still it's it's already ready Lower Casey. It's relaunching. I guess it started in two thousand seventeen It's relaunching. She's expanding her cosmetics fashion because we got to do cosmetically coming out yeah a lot of good things happening after a rough couple months it everyone everyone happy. Everything's you know I have a big support team here in New York that helps meow while I'm in North Carolina the kids and stuff so I mean we have everything Morgan is and we're really excited for the launch and Canley. You guys are doing good yeah. Definitely I know I know your address so rumors on instagram watching pregnancy pregnancy bows out about on every two years of donor. They've always said Oh. She's pregnant. Look at the picture the happy happy and healthy in married relationships a little weight too when you know they're happy endings away. When you have a cosmetics line? Don't you have to be sort of iconic in the realm of beauty like even the photo that TMZ put China's say no. I mean specifically beauty as in the industry because you look at the photo of Janelle there. She has terrible lipstick terrible. I make up her brows. Look Awful. Why would you trust this person with the cosmetics line? I yeah no yeah you know what I mean. This is this is just like the fact that these two are the ones making most of the headlines that when you search fashion week is a is the problem is the problem whoever whoever runs New York fashion week needs to really take a look in the mirror e e yeah don't and yet don't invite these talk to their publicity person. It's they like this is the coverage. Were getting this as a problem but it's weird because it's individual brands not New York fashion week as a whole. It's these individuals shows like anyone can have a fashion and Joe will get there but like yeah anyone can just throw a fashion show the other story that I saw getting a ton of coverage apart from the one that just broke this morning which we'll get to in a second can't is that Eva Chen. I'm not sure we've ever spoken about on the show wore a twenty five dollar target Hoodie in a fashion emergency. She was like the editor in chief of I lucky I think and then now.

Yeah Eve has actually been called Anna Winter of the digital age and that's high praise very well deserved even giving us a taste upper fabulous glamorous high fashion floral Eva Chen to one to one point two million followers on instagram. She just just like daily look. She's got a cute kid and then she's people. People people think that she's really people like he's like a New York social scene per. She's not a socialite but she's like she everywhere shall I she must definition of social it everywhere she has she gets invited to everything she takes good photos her instagram's and Iheart in place to be right right. She's very New York Orc not to sound Carrie Bradshaw. She's very you're did you see this photo of Eva Chen with the Hoodie yes. She bought a Hoodie at target. This is very what I want a lot of us. It's like it's it's like targeted mommy blogging type very sauce lowbrow highbrow. It's like I had an emergency and I go to target like okay cool fashion emergency. I wasn't unable to go home and change out of my pink and Purple Look but I sort of think like you could have you know everyone you can change literally everywhere. You decided to do this because he knew it would be relatable label and fun and guess what it were Cher. I just don't unto Seneca. I don't believe this but I I like her. You Know No. I don't think that but it's also funny 'cause the sweatshirt says marvel on it like she's picked. She's like in photos of people wearing like nice outfits and Springer White Says Marvel on it that is pretty funny actually and also you know fashions so much about like the confidence and the the way you wear it and so even if you told Blake if you you told me this was her plan all along and didn't get coverage it was just like Eva Chen shows up wearing a marble things. You may not gotten headlines for it but like I would have been like Oh that looks trendy. She's wearing an oversized sweatshirt to a fashion thing. So what's the other what's the last fashion he adjacent or there is but let's skip this this little one and then go to for this this incredible page six like tete-a-tete where Courtney love who is so whatever unpredictable in terms of the kind of press she gets got some good ass press that I she very it seems like she's the one who sent the email to page six but whatever whatever love was she claims and has all the receipts to prove it was offered one hundred thousand dollars not to walk in but to just attend the fashion show show for LBV which has the line run by Joss sackler who's married into the sackler family which owns purdue Pharma which is like the the reason the opioid epidemic exists so she's like old money but bad money toxic money. She's rich because of the opioid crisis Blah Blah Blah. She doesn't want you to talk about at that so she gets a lot of bad press all the time for having this fashion line so every story better fashion line comes with an asterisk by the way she's connected to the opioid crisis Blah Blah yeah. I don't even think what's craziest her. Fashioning isn't even necessarily popular question mark like it's not that cool. It's like it. It's sort of a cell. I like this thing where people are like ignoring. It's it's it's not I'm trying to think of a brand that people love that is like everyone knows. It's like it's like ammo not Amazon like I'm just saying like it's not like this brand that everyone loves that we all like pretend that that the sackler is related to. It's like a brand that like is very adamant you definitely he makes clothes. It's fine. It's who we like. Who Wears it? I'm not quite sure I don't know but it's it's ugly. This woman who's who gets all her money from like essentially the opioid crisis doing this fashion line. LBV No one wants to come there were already stories like a couple of days ago about how like no one wants to attend the LV path fashion show because it's a bad look to attend the LV fashion show so she already is getting bad press. She's already worried about attendance. Apparently then this story breaks Monday morning and Courtney love is like Joss sackler tried to pay me one hundred thousand dollars just to tenth of fashion show and she was like are you no kidding me. I'm a recovering opioid addict. I talk about it constantly. I'M NOT GONNA go to your fashion show and Chazal these emails that are like Elizabeth Kennedy and Joss are huge fans of courtney she she best embodies the women they are dressing strong undeterred and it says the brand has no relation to purdue other than Josh's Mary to the family which is enough which is from everything these emails ended up on page six as deaths and then they get a comment from Courtney love probably because she sent them the emails males and said I am one of the most famous reform junkies on the planet. My husband died on heroin. What is it about me that says to Joe Sackler? I will sell out to you well I walt and I feel like this is like yet another nail in the IB and the LV coffin it keeps getting nothing but bad press well. This is the IT earlier this year. I thought we were kind of done with this early. This year they were covered because near Times wrote about her and they you know obviously mentioned all of the things things and then she wrote this whole thing that was like Oh women you know she she spun and intellect be like a whole. If a man dumplings the bet and it's like not quite in this example is your is what you're saying drew like not quite not quite you know and she said she said over and and over again like I have nothing to do with the opioid crisis like just because like I married into the family doesn't mean I'm like complicit and it's like you know what it's Sorta does and she refuses to accept up this but is like very very aggressively defending herself as like this unrelenting like the money that is being spent on this. It's not uneven about like I'm married. I'm complicit. It's like the money that how do I. It's like the moment you marry somebody. Who's funding this fashion like it's without even without takeout you the money from the family from this? These drugs is funding this. When you are married? It is no longer your money. It is your it is our money you you know like in the in the eyes of the law. It is our money so it's that's your money that opioid money that's yours. I'm sorry so now Courtney love is dragging them to the hell on. I bet they didn't expect it which is sort of stupid on their part of Courtney love's GonNa starship. Courtney is GonNa Start Shit. Of course he's GonNa Start Fit. What is next on this thing? Oh I love this photo of Kate Moss Julianne Moore Linda Cartolini Linda Carlini having a moment good for her for awhile now she's nominated for an emmy right for her for that show having a moment while you know who's not having a moment who iggy Azalea while she is having a moment it just hurt quote. E crawled up the inside of my pant hat leg. IGGY AZALEA is stung by a Hornet four times as her comeback album flops the charts meanwhile. This is her hometown writing about the Daily Mail Australia even sadder it's like did you guys have any sense of of hometown Bryan away that this is constructed as some sort of these simul because they love doing like the simultaneous stuff as this is happening like tragedy happens amid whatever as though they're happening simultaneously in the exact point of view of the person listen iggy Azalea is being stung by Hornet while she's watching like the live itunes charts like bleep bleep bleep going down and a Hornets just like sting sting instinct stink stink the girl who kicked the Hornet's nest the girl who flopped the I tunes charts and the God. That's the stiegler sincere. He's we need that one will cause us to remember his star has herself. Oh Jesus what the other one the girl who kicked the Hornet's nest that's great the girl who loved the charts the girl who walk the walk mom. That's the only thing I remember from her now. I know it's really it's her. Fame is sort of IT SORTA special. It's a it's a strange. It's an extreme one. We don't really have that. Many one. Hit wonders these days you know yeah but she's not a one hit. Wonder she follows she follows the size of the one hit wonder heads yeah but it's also weird because she has a her fame. WJM came at the point. We're ready to start canceling people for things and she became the she wasn't her talent and in her songs weren't good enough to survive the cultural cancellation that she got get it yeah but I think there's also something about like it's I. I feel like it's both harder and harder and walk. It's harder and harder to break into the music industry but once you're there people are more forgiving of you like you know like little Nasdaq's..

"Having us let's begin west these thirtysecond elevator pitch if our listeners are just joining us and they don't have two little kids like you and i do rachel the thirty second elevator pitch for rockets of awesome yeah rockets of awesome is eight kids apparel brand for boys and girls sizes to the fourteen andrey sell direct to consumer both through subscription as well the ecommerce experience an we design closed that are really fun and fashionable but really comfortable aware and very accessible price points sixteen the thirty eight dollars i think from all the research i've done it's as much doubt a company and a tech company is a fashion companies effort say ferry so i we always say there were half data in technology in sort of data science an half brand thirty seconds later pitch to you mr worby parker 'em a we sell prescription glasses and sunglasses starting on ninety five dollars that would typically cost you five hundred dollars plus and for every pair of glasses we so we distribute one to someone in need and we now provided over five million pairs of glasses to people in need around the world so drum roll here for people who may not know why i'm interviewing you together why is that because you are over over mary ann we've known each other for over twenty years in business and in business partners at time or helping building on officials and her name rachel is your you've built three companies by the way this is just the most recent what's you're northstar 'em it all changes based on what and building but i'd say what's 'em what is sort of aligned with all those is just the passion and so really being incredibly passionate about a problem that i'm trying to solve the consumer an stopping at nothing to solve that what you're northstar now 'em i wanna change the world a in in a positive way and i know that sounds trite but i don't know how else to describe it in right now one of the ways to do that is a is through glasses and envision a man are hope with worby parker is that not only can we hopefully solve this challenge of literally about a billion people around the planet don't have access the glasses which is crazy because of technology is about eight hundred years old so were failing as a species not able to make that widely distributed 'em but also the demonstrate that companies can scale they can be profitable they can do good in the world and they don't need a charge a premium for it so are hope is to provide vision to the world both literally and figuratively last i checked through the work that you do outside tired of your core business the people's project about five million eyeglasses have been given away is that right that's right and that's a all around the world including here in the usa in new york city in baltimore so new york city where in over two hundred fifty schools a making sure that kids were giving me i exams they need and then we ask you design glasses that 'em they can choose a because we think that everybody deserves to be treated with dignity and we know the guys are looking people are going without like wearing them especially for kids right if they're insecure about it so worby parker is crying valuation is about two billion dollars an as you're smart wife just put it to me that makes you w she's she's my man to be a double unicorn a you know that sort of an external marker and i certainly i validating by at the end of the day what's great is that the larger we scale a the more good we do a in terms of glasses provided to people in need in terms of arcor consumer and how they're saving money in terms of the people that were able to hire and enable them to learn and grow 'em so it's a milestone in some respect but you know we talk more internally about the fact that we now have you know two thousand employees the fact that are net promoter score a measure of customer satisfaction on has been in the eighties since we launched which is you know a higher than any company that no of how well who rapes that 'em so a painting company sort of developed the methodology right you ask somebody how likely are they to refer product or service to a friend on and a we survey are customers and we do without a bunch of different interval so that way we understand the impact of time and not experience so for example if you a survey somebody within twenty four hours a visiting are store you know they might not have gotten are product yet so we're really looking at the store experience if we a survey them within a week or two we know that they've now gotten their product if we if we survey them a couple of months later you know shipping times is less important it's more about sort of the product quality and how they're using it over time rachel that there's no question that neil would not be sitting here today having built this with his partners if you didn't put him through business school can you take us back there i say this because when he and i met 'em almost a year ago now and i said i really want interview you and rachel together he he was like well okay that's interesting but and he was really concerned that given all you've done in all you've built in your incredible successes and entrepreneurs sometimes people will category grise you as you blumenthal wife and he really didn't want that to be the case which made me wanna interview well he's always been my biggest cheerleader 'em yeah i mean i think that that's a really simple way right and it's an easy away from people sort of categorize and we yeah 'em and certainly you know through my career particularly is worthy has had success and i had the notoriety that it's had people often look at me and say like well why even bothering her you know why do you why do you need to do this and 'em it's not about needing to do what it's about wanting to do it and it's about being passionate and wanting to drive impact 'em but you know neil and i were dating when i lost my first business and he was the one that really sort of pushed me over the edge to set up shop in my living room which is a jewelry company an album the people love this was a meeting with the other two lucky bucks yeah so lucky magazine featured man we we're in about five hundred retailers worldwide a private label for american eagle targeting j crew we were named oprah's favorite things while 'em so it wasn't it was a significant business and 'em i learned so much that journey i was really young when i launched it end 'em you know i had a learning curve at around the point that were getting going and i think what was so exciting for me was being able to follow them every conference so they would go to andrew really feel like i was learning again and that was when i starting to come up with a sort of the next ideas for the next businesses and i felt which also sort of progressive you guys became parents right yeah absolutely so you know the the second business would have been called crickets circle which is inspired by having a kid zander are first end noticing that there were so many products to decide what you buy many double stroller yesterday and was like overwhelmed again near inexperienced periods parents overwhelmed by picking out shoulder magic first time parents and so is essentially a cliff notes of what to buy when you have a baby in editorialize content help that parents 'em sort of navigate that were all their products but ultimately what we learned through that was that there is an ongoing a much larger pain point in the fact that are kids are closed so quickly and with such volume and there was a real opportunity to make that life easier of that consumer and you only be a solution for them that eventually was built into your company now which you've raised fifty million dollars yes right yeah i'd like to talk about the fundraising becomes something tells me that this double unicorns over here i year husband has not had a heart attack raising money rachel you've talked about being shocked and disappointed by quote some of the most overt sexist questions you would receive what were those questions and who asked them oh god on men and women actually i think that's probably even more surprising but 'em yeah i mean i think it was so shocking to me is that you know i always grew up for whatever reason thinking that i could do whatever i wanna do and build 'em you a company or be whatever i want it to be and it was never about gender anand 'em it was shocking to me going through the capital racing processing center capital funds 'em that i was being asked questions that were directly related being a woman and you know whether it was 'em you know they say so you know you're single founder meaning identical cofounder 'em anterior mom and they sort of you know a long pause and i've i've let that long pause happen because i want them to feel awkward about it and then they say so you know how how you know how do you spend your time or 'em you know what is what is sort of you're commitment to this business and i would look at them and i would really extend that awkward pause because i want them to sort of feel and understand that that was a ridiculous question 'em in for anyone that new neil and knew what he was building with his cofounders i'd say well exactly how neil does and they sort of feel you know that was awkward in in a non really bombs and shame yeah and and then they look at me and i'd say well you know this is my business in a building and i'm committed to it and you know basically what kind of question is that will also the craziest question you often get else's well for how long do you plan on doing this and that's something that g nobody million years where they over us we're microphones whatever whoever has anyone apologized wow wow i don't know if anyone even acknowledges that they ask those questions i i'm surprised women ask them as well that surprising to me 'em in you know i would i would hope to believe that that's changed in the last several years you know that was probably four or five years ago when i ask those questions maybe more 'em but yeah i mean you know i think that the sexism does go both ways unfortunately and 'em you know is definitely asked probably one spiderwoman many many times by men what did you think when i no she came home called you i'd probably call my husband screaming like i can't believe this happened to me what was your reaction to it i mean i obviously you know it exists this sexism world but having your wife and and best friend and this talented did entrepreneur or experience at what was that like for you a in credibly frustrating and you feel a sense of helplessness right and the whole reason why ones and entrepreneurism was a gain control over what you can accomplish 'em and it was just wild on the then i think you know to rachel's credit just give her more motivation writes a how could i build this faster more capitol efficient so that way 'em i don't have to sort go through this and it's funny it was almost like i wasn't phased by it like i was like oh this is happening what people say could happen is happening and i think i almost like the challenge like i think i was like yeah like ask me that question like bringing show you you now versus being sort of frustrated or felt like i was like knocked down at the same time as you're raising so much money you don't know what to do with it i mean you you you don't need any more money here we we've raised cosa three hundred million dollars others and we're in a cycle now where every vc's china deployed more and more capital and we don't wanna think we were profitable in our free cash flow positive 'em and yeah now just rico sobers just alluded well right you have to be careful in raises right i mean you've talked about this recharges ratings and memories of too much capital could be a detriment yeah i think that you know there's something that is perceived as really sexy about raising venture capital and and sort of legitimize you and in some respect it does legitimize you but 'em i.

"Click shopgirls page or do it on social media at Allie shops at harmony Kaplan, right? Yes. But we do have something. I just you know, I don't know how to react to this Tyra banks. I think most people that know, follow fashion. It all know who Tyra banks's she's been a top model, but she's a top businesswoman. Who she is opening a twenty one thousand square foot theme park in Santa Monica, and you're going to be able to experience what she calls a fantasy version of the world of modeling. Going to call. It is going model land model land she told. Like straight out of Instagram. I can't even believe this is happening. It's going to open in in two thousand nineteen I think closer to spring in the Santa Monica place shopping mall, and it's based on she has a semi autobiographical novel that was called model, and that she wrote in two thousand ten and so it's kind of based on that because she believes she said in bringing modeling to the masses she thinks that's her calling. Yes is to do. So she she said she created top model to expand the definition of beauty based on my own pain of being told. No that I couldn't do something because I'm curvy or I'm black, and my empathy for women in general increased through that experience. And so she wants to open that up to everyone, and what they're going to have because I will what are they gonna do there? But it's going to be the same thing everywhere. Fees. Exactly, they're gonna interactive entertainment. They're going to have curated retail and user generated content that can be shared, and it's for men women and families all generation because the family that models together they model. But anyway, it's not a pop-up. She said this is a permanent attraction that's going to be there. She's inspired by Disneyland and anybody can enter and feel like a model, and I was kind I had mixed feelings about this. Yeah. On the one hand, you know that certainly a perfectly respectable profession, right? And on the other hand in this age of stem, but we're trying to teach kids girls, especially the science, and technology and all those things are important. You just learned what stem you wanted to use that this week. Didn't you? We're talking to the tech. Reporter are you? Sorry. I know what the. Science technology, engineering and math good, you winks allies, you then some people use steam to they put an a, and that's the aeronautics. Maybe we're looking at it. Trouble. So Q my guy. Anyway, I, you know, I guess there's a place for everything somehow it, I'm sure it will be popular especially out in California at all. But it just be. I mean, it'll be popular. It's one of those things that people are going to want to go just to say they've gone. With a little bit of a sense of humor. I mean, it could be fun. I suppose I'll go with you. Okay. We going into picture post. Oh, I mean, I'll go anytime you want to go to Santa Monica, art, science, technology, engineering, art and math. Okay. So sometimes you see steam programs as well as stem programs. Okay. I basically have seen stem. I haven't really seen that get with it steam as a thing to mom, and who is also a thing on the rooftop at the hewing. Have you seen winter pictures of that of the hot tub that it's going to do that? And is okay. Let's let's bring this all together. Really? This is the famous model who really knows her business and teaches girls how I know. Exactly who you're currently Kloss, very. Got it. Who is she married to? The guy who started Snapchat wrong. No really who she is married to Jared. Kushner's brother. Oh, but she tries to act like she's not part of that group. Really? Yeah. They really do sort of live a totally separate life have very different political views. Wow. Well, here's another prime who almost could've started a modeling theme park. If she wasn't so busy running a wellness empire. Gwyneth Paltrow who obviously goop is all the things and has had a lot of success with their podcast. And so now, I mean, it's almost like bringing it full circle. And it makes perfect sense. Goop is coming to net flicks. Shower feature our episode, right which sound very have you ever listened to the podcast. I did one. Yes. I did hear one. Okay. I you know, it some of them are Gwyneth. And some of them are her like executive editor Elise loan. Yeah. I used to freelance for you did that. Yeah. Back in the days. Remember lucky magazine? Yes. Contributor from the twin cities and the lease was my editor how now she is number two anyway, but I don't really enjoy. When a does the ones that are really more very like woo wellness. I don't listen to us as much Gwyneth does. Like, I listen to Gwen is talking to Chrissy tied sent you that one. Yeah. And you know. Shorts. Did she bring your coffee? They did it. I think adequate do you know who Chrissy Teigen invited to her house to watch the Grammy's who? Hiros Andrea court, courtesy critique. She said I'm there. Yup. She's going. Wow. I hope you that invitation next year. Mom. Yeah. Jumping up read anywhere. So so Gwen is bringing goop to net flix, and it's it's Glenn eighth and her it's her chief content officer at least Loenen they're going to utilize their experts doctors, and researchers to examine issues related to physical and spiritual wellness. Yeah. So it'll be very interesting. I mean, I guess if I'm sure people will tune in lever. No. You know net. Flicks is like obviously no brainer. Gwyneth is highly visual tactile, and the quality of everything we produce very important to her. She's always looking for white space. Whether it's developing physical products are thinking about content. Yeah. She wants to bring it to life. So in her magazine, good magazine, which is a quarterly publication. They're going to put that on hold while stay Netflix series might be a better medium for. Well. It says they're going to resume after the after the documentaries. Vogue backed away from doing cutting asked was going to do that the group magazine, but Gwyneth didn't understand the division between editorial and advertising. She didn't understand. Oh why? She's like, I don't see why we can't blur all the lines. Oh, so that ended that kind of interest. Well, I probably watch episode. I'll watch episode just like recon, then we'll go from. Oh, I still haven't seen that. But that's okay. Okay. We will be back with a live tech report. If you want to see how it all goes down get over here to Max's at Excelsior and grant back with more shopgirls right after this. Sunday is Grammy's date,.

"You could do what kind of company was over there. He was making high end men shirts for women. So he had the type of client base that didn't think twice about spending five to five hundred two thousand dollars on really well-crafted shirt, and he had avid collectors of the shirts. A woman in Texas had a dry cleaning rack in her house to house all her collection of his stuff. So he only hit a finite size of. Collection. And I find it manatee aerials. And then when you were done, I was literally twiddling my thumbs. And so the got savvy and sort of had me help other areas out of the company, and then if I finished my work early, then she's like work on something for yourself, which I think is really rare. And so that's when I started taking a look at should I launch something. And should I make do what I'm good at? And so I began to design a small five piece collection of apparel and was beginning to work on that during my day job. If I've got all my work done. I mean in your mind as are you designing this for them? Like, it's going to be part of what they're lunching or like, no, this is this is the first step of my sort of like next thing on my own. I don't think that I at the time had confidence that I could pursue it as my own. And I definitely knew it wasn't the right aesthetic for who. I was working for. But I just knew that I had. This feeling inside me that was like I have to get these ideas out on I have to get this clothing made. And I was obsessed with it. And so it would eventually become a company, but at the time, I just had to creatively that was my output. And so the ironic thing is every time I put one of those items on I didn't feel like I could wear it. So for someone else always spending time that how long we actually there. I was there for three years. Okay. What were you? What did you learn? I mean, clearly you learned it wasn't for you eventually and that you needed to out on your own. But it's interesting because of -ly three years at that age. It's kind of like, this is your college education. Correct. Yeah. And the CEO literally put me to task in every department. So I got a great exposure to PR, and how that works, and I got a great exposure to shipping and sales and client relations reception. She really had me hit all aspects of it, which to me is more valuable than what, you know, some people come away with at a school because I was really in real life dealing with real things in a living breathing business. The so the sort of push to start my own company was not planned. I just come back from the Caribbean. I went to an arts convention, and I really loved how in the Caribbean. They were cutting up shirts and putting beads on them. But I didn't wanna come home. With like a rubel on shirt. So I did. And I love New York shirt. And I cut it up. And I was wearing it. My sister-in-law saw. She wanted one I made her one, and then she was at dinner with him. Well, known actress at the time I want one. So I sent it to her on September ninth two thousand one obviously nine eleven happened. And she wore my shirt on Jay Leno on the twelfth thirteenth and he commented on the shirt. She said my name, and again, presold media, the magazines went wild with it. They started putting it in the magazine like us weekly and lucky magazine and any any print that mattered, and they talked about it so much that suddenly that's what I was doing for nine months straight. All I did. So this EEO. Okay. See that. I was busy. She's like, you're fired. Go do it. Now's your time. Which was really scary. Because it's not like I was making money on the shirts. I was barely able to pay rent. But it I had my mental. But also this was a time where we're near city post nine eleven like within the year the city was decimated. I mean, the city and a lot of business anything that would be considered in any way, shape or form discretionary spending kind of crushed the entire advertising. Marketing space was crushed.

Unlike which I did, not know this either unlike Barbie feet which requires you to hyper extend your legs and point your toes is if you're wearing invisible high heels the baby giraffe pose is subtle enough that it doesn't seem intentional and that. Of course is the idea so either. Chen says she strikes this pose whenever she takes mirror cell fees at work, and the. POS makes her look like she's a baby giraffe walking I mean that was actually in her consciousness she was actually thinking I'm going to put my legs like a baby giraffe Oh I think. When she did it, she just realized that way look like that and hence Is one leg a little bit. In, front of the other no no rated, you have to stick your butt out behind you oh so to make, your legs look long you stand with one leg a. Little ways. In front of the, other? But you have to stick your behind out. Behind you I see and if. He's wrong right I, don't know if I can do that I have to practice, that one I haven't tried it but so apparently all the biggies. Like Bella Hadid and Ashley Graham just to name a few and everybody is doing this. Post so probably you're going to want to. Work on that practice at home and try. That. I. Don't know if, I, can do that we. Will, look for your Instagram later today mom okay your, baby giraffe Instagram wait to see it meanwhile the royals. Have. Their own technique not. For, posing but for knowing that they're, pretty much always being photographed Yup and it. Really does Doesn't work well. When it's windy and like a skirt goes well did you ever see the picture of.

Etiquette expert who revealed to the sun that often they were bodysuits and close that actually increase. Static so it's. Harder. For the garments to fly increase, static because one is rubbing against. The other oh God it okay.

Undergarments that keep the fabric connected to your, body Body so the only thing, that I guess I don't understand about that is, whenever I have you know things would have static cling they didn't look very attractive because they would Doesn't make for good pictures either.
