What to Watch: Royal, Political Influencers Spark Criticism, Affect Fashion With Photo-ops

Like them, love them or despise them, political and royal influencers churn up the Internet nearly instantaneously with every public outing.
Whether stepping out for a diplomatic gala dinner, a schoolyard visit with wide-eyed students or for a hardhat-worthy ribbon cutting ceremony, the powers-that-be dress accordingly, knowing their choices will send sales skyrocketing. Their personal fashion loyalties vary — Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel favors pantsuits, beleaguered British Prime Minister Theresa May prefers skirt suits, France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron is all about Louis Vuitton and U.S. First Lady Melania Trump is nonpartisan in terms of designers.
As a sign of their global reach, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, topped Google’s 10 most-searched people list last year. For her first official tour, with Prince Harry last fall, to Australia, the American-born royal packed plenty of options for the 16-day trip. Occasionally changing twice in one day, the former “Suits” actress wore an assortment of Australian labels, as well as Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Roksanda Ilincic, Stuart Weitzman, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci and Birks.
Before last spring’s royal wedding, it was estimated that the net present value to brands that Markle wears was 150 million pounds, or $ 212.1 million, according to David Haigh,

Amarist Studio Aims to Spark Social Awareness With Refugees-Inspired Welcome Jewelry

WELCOME DISCUSSION: In these politically charged times, Amarist Studio will be making a statement with its Welcome Jewelry installation in May at Art New York.
The Barcelona-based creative agency was formed by the artists and designers Arán Lozano and Clara Campo. They will be showing the Welcome Jewelry for Social Good for the first time in the U.S., when the event starts May 3 at Pier 94, and runs through May 11. The earrings, bracelets, necklaces and pins are made of razor wire that has been cut, polished and plated with 24-karat gold and will be showcased in clear plastic packaging. The effect is meant to be like a mass-produced supermarket.
Campo said via e-mail, “With the Welcome installation in Art New York, we want to create an immersive space for the visitor, generating debate on the refugee crisis as well as empowering social responsibility. With the deconstruction of a border wall, followed by the transformation of its fragments into solidarity jewelry, we want to demonstrate how art and design can help change concepts, going beyond the theoretical to become active.”
The installation will be set up near the entrance to the art fair. The barbed wire is supposed to symbolize the barbed

British PM Theresa May’s Leather Trousers Spark War of Words

PANTS ON FIRE: Two British luxury brands – Amanda Wakeley and Mulberry – have been caught in a war of words between the Prime Minister Theresa May and David Cameron’s former education secretary Nicky Morgan.
Morgan has accused May of profligacy in her purchase of a pair of brownish-gold Amanda Wakeley leather trousers, which she wore at home during a recent shoot for The Sunday Times of London — and more recently for work at No. 10 Downing Street.
In the shoot, the fashion-loving prime minister teamed the 995 pounds, or $ 1,250, flared trousers with a pair of black and white Burberry sneakers and a dark, draped sweater. May has long been a lover of fashion, wearing designer brands including Roland Mouret, Anya Hindmarch, and Russell & Bromley.
In September, May hosted a cocktail at Downing Street to usher in London Fashion Week and give the industry a pep talk. “Thank you for what you are doing for British business out there, and across the world,” she told designers and industry leaders. “Long live British fashion. Let’s go from success to success.”
Wakeley’s team said the trouser model is Desert Khaki Leather Pant from the current fall 2016 season. They’re sold out online, but still available at

Sea to Summit Spark SPI Ultra-Dry Down Sleeping Bag (46F/8C) – Regular/Left Hand Zip


Sea to Summit Spark SPI Ultra-Dry Down Sleeping Bag (46F/8C) – Regular/Left Hand Zip : The Spark is an ultra light bag with several key uses. Its balance of size, weight and warmth make it an excellent summer sleeping bag, especially for cycle touring and ultra-light hiking. Its size and temperature rating means it can also work well as a booster bag, slipping inside another sleeping bag to add warmth. The protection of Ultra-Dry Down makes the Spark ideal for summer alpine use and adventure racing, where heavy weight is not tolerated and where until now down has not been a viable option. The secrets of the Spark’s amazing warmth to weight ratio are in the premium quality down, micro-weight shell and liner fabrics, the 1/3 length #3 YKK zipper, and the sew-through transverse baffle construction.

5 Ways Mindfulness Can Put The Spark Back In Your Relationship

Think of your marriage like a bank account: pay into it often with acts of kindness and generosity and it’ll help your relationship no end. High50 wellbeing coach Alex Blossom explains how.

Relationship problems come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it might feel as though the spark has gone. It might be that you are going through a stage where you feel irritable and frustrated or you could be feeling neglected or hurt in some way.

Whatever the problem, mindfulness can help you to get through the most tricky of times. These five mindful relationship fixes will help you get back on track.

1. Learn To Listen

Really taking time to listen to your partner can make all the difference. Take time to be genuinely interested in what they have to say. It is so easy to get caught up in our own little world, we can become consumed by our own thoughts and feelings.

When we learn to listen we find out things that we didn’t know, even when we have been together for a long time. By turning our attention outwards, we clear a little bit of head space and make some room for our partner.

2. Just Be

It is so easy to slip into trying to change our partners, wishing that they were different. We can hear ourselves nagging: we don’t want to do it, but sometimes holding our tongue can seem impossible.

Before you jump in and criticize your partner always, take a few deep breaths. Really think about what you will achieve by making a comment. When you next sit down for a meal together try listing five things that you love about each other.

The conversation this creates will get you thinking and feeling more positively.

3. Feel

Touch is a really important sensation, but so often we lose the closeness that we had in the early days of our relationship.

Rather than cuddling up to each other we become protective of our space, bickering over sides of the bed. Rather than taking time to kiss each other when we say goodbye in the morning our minds are perhaps already at work dealing with a situation.

So take the time to really feel next time you and your partner have physical contact. Notice the sensation of warmth and contact and enjoy the closeness, even if only for a moment.

4. Be Compassionate

If your partner is going through a tough time then put yourself in their shoes. Imagine how things are for them. Think about what you would want in their situation: it will make a huge difference.

When you learn to look at things from their perspective you can gain a real understanding of their behavior. When you get to grips with what is going on for your partner everything will seem easier. So many relationship problems stem from a lack of understanding.

5. Invest

Think of your relationship like a bank account. Making withdrawals all the time will leave you in deficit and things can start to look bleak. Paying in more often with acts of kindness and generosity will leave you feeling positive and secure.

Giving to your partner really can make you happy. While your attention is on seeking out an opportunity for kindness it is not consumed by worrying thoughts. You will be free to get on and enjoy life.
