BEZAR Cool Art and Design Stuff

bezar-art-cool-stuff

Bezar connects people who design special things

with people who desire special things.

After a year of soul-searching, Fab cofounder and former creative director Bradford Shellhammer is back in the flash sales game with his forthcoming startup Bezar, an online short-term sales hub for designers who are hand picked by Shellhamm.

Sound familiar? Shellhammer admits that the site, when it launches this spring, will work a lot like the original Fab.

Although he’s not calling Bezar a flash sales site, but rather a collection of pop-up shops, “because it’s a little different from flash,” Shellhammer said. “This is not excess inventory.

What sets Bezar apart from Fab, Shellhammer says, is partnerships with more established brands, which will use the platform to sell designer collaborations and new collections.

The initiative has also collected an interesting crew of advisers and angel investors, including Whoopi Goldberg and the design guru Yves Behar. Shellhammer will act as CEO, a more operations-oriented role than he had at Fab; his founding team includes former private equity investor Justin Chen as CFO and former Fab employees Matt Baer (also of Quirky) and PieterJan Mattan as COO and creative director, respectively.

Saks Fifth Avenue Transgender Discrimination

saks-fifth-avenue-transgender-discrimination

I could see WALMART doing this….but  Saks  Fifth Avenue???

Leyth O. Jamal, a transgender woman living in Texas, has filed a federal lawsuit against her former employer, Saks Fifth Avenue, alleging that she was exposed to a hostile working environment at the luxury department store’s Houston-area location, reports local news station KPRC.

In a statement from her attorney, Jamal describes being harassed and belittled by coworkers, being forced to use the men’s restroom, withstanding intentional and repeated use of male pronouns by her coworkers, and ultimately being fired. Following this alleged mistreatment, she filed a claim of workplace discrimination with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency that enforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Amendment of 1964, including protecting workers from sex-based discrimination. Full story at ADVOCATE.

Attorneys for the company also blatantly misgendered Jamal in court documents and alleged the retailer isn’t bound by its own nondiscrimination policy, which covers transgender workers.

 

BuzzFeed reports:

“Saks’ arguments are hugely concerning to us,” the director of HRC’s Workplace Equality Program, Deena Fidas, said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News. “In its court filings, Saks attempts to secure a motion to dismiss Ms. Jamal’s allegations by simultaneously calling into question the validity of its own non-discrimination policy and the larger, crucial protections afforded by Title VII.”

Regarding its Corporate Equality Index, an effort to alert consumers to pro-LGBT or anti-LGBT policies of companies, Fidas added: “The policies our CEI advances are not window dressings for any company to prop up or disregard in the face of individual allegations of misconduct. Saks is publicly undercutting the applicability of its own policies reported in the CEI and we must suspend Saks’ CEI score until further notice.”

A huge backlash AGAINST  SAKS  has already started.

Tom Ford Penis Cross Necklace

tom-ford-penis-cross-necklace

Oh what a lovely cross – I mean penis!

Yes – Tom Ford is selling Penis necklaces!   Handmade Penis Pendant Necklace 64 cm Chain Length Cross 29X19mm Vintage Gold Plated Brass Galvanization Made In Italy.

The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has taken issue with a Ford-designed piece of jewelry called the “penis pendant necklace.” The $790 piece, which is available in gold and silver, looks exactly like the name suggests and comes in sizes small, medium and large.

The controversial Catholic League considers the piece offensive, however, because the pendant appears to be in the shape of a cross.

“When we learned of this item, I said to the staff that I bet this guy Tom Ford is a homosexual,” Bill Donahue, the Catholic League’s president and CEO, is quoted as saying in a press release. “I was right. He even thinks he’s married.” (Ford is married to journalist Richard Buckley.)

The 53-year-old fashion star debuted the necklace at his spring-summer 2015 show in London over the summer. At the time, Esquire noted the possibility that the penis cross may be an allusion to the phallus-shaped fascinus charms worn by ancient Romans.

Real.Soaps from Gay Business Owners in Chicago

real soaps gay owned business

You may want to eat these soaps… But Don’t!
For real though, these soaps smells divine. They are  like a big comforting hug! Lots of oils and creative concoctions.  Like the Tom Collins Scrub!  Yes, based on the cocktail!

“We are two guys from Chicago who make amazing soaps and bath products! It all started when we decided to look at the ingredients of our commercial soaps & cleaning products. After some research we decided to rid our home of them and make our own. We learned that all you REALLY need to clean almost anything is some combination of soap and water. Logically, we began to make our own soaps, and it turns out, we are pretty good at it. Our friends started asking us to buy our REAL soaps to replace their commercial “soaps,” so we set up a shop on etsy and now you can too.

We use the traditional cold-process method to produce small-batch, handmade artisan soaps. To us, REAL means natural. We don’t use any dyes, preservatives, or artificial ingredients. Each bar is hand cut and cared for to bring you a personal, REAL experience.

If you want to try our REAL. soaps, you can order some here in our ETSY  shop

magic pads skin face

A friend of mine told me about these, now I am hooked!   MAGIC PADS! The Magic Pads is the world’s newest and most revolutionary product illuminating the road to perfect skin!

Using a unique blend of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids combined with Aloe and vitamin e.  No fragrance, no parabens, no unnecessary nonsense.

 

The Magic Pads is designed to destroy acne, clear breakouts, smooth skin,  PLUS they tighten pores, exfoliate, tone, clarify and fight aging as well as moisturize all is one swift swoop of the pad.

Little Goddess Cosmetics blogger said, “I had the pleasure of speaking with the creator of The Magic Pads, Rob Harmon (who besides being a skin care wizard, is also a makeup artist on the hit Broadway musical, Wicked) and when I asked him why he decided to create these, he basically said he wanted a product that worked without all the unnecessary ingredients and was affordable for the people who really needed it.

 “I know how hard it is to get people to trust in a new skin care product. That’s one of the many reasons I kept the price as low as it is. I’d like to say they are unlike anything I’ve ever found, and they are great for everyone with all skin types.”

$20  a jar – well worth it!

World AIDS Day and Margo Manhattan

  December 1st marks the
25th observance of World AIDS Day.
This year’s theme is fittingly “Shared Responsibility:
Strengthening results for an AIDS-free generation.”  More than 1.1 million people are
infected with HIV in the United States and 20% more may be infected without
knowing it. An
interactive map
details reported diagnoses across
the country according to race, economics, gender and age.  STD testing, prevention and education is
key in the fight against this epidemic.  

In the 90’s Margo Manhattan created the universally recognized red
ribbon lapel pin for AIDS awareness. This furthered Margo’s reputation
as a visionary, socially aware and iconic jewelry designer. Margo’s
sleek, versatile designs are elegant with an edge, captivating and sexy.
Her passion for inventiveness and signature “of the moment we live in”
comes through eloquently in every aspect of her jewelry. Visit
the new Margo Manhattan boutique on 88th and Madison and explore her
collections or commission a special piece for you or your loved ones.
Find her on Facebook (her website was acting up this week).

DID YOU KNOW…….

As of 2002, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) developed national standards and started the National Organic Program http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/nop for organic food production and handling.

USDA Organic labeling is broken down into 4 subcategories.

  • 100% Organic (contains 100% organic ingredients. E.g. a piece of fruit)
  • Organic (Contains 95% or more organic ingredients)
  • Made With Organic Ingredients (70% or more organic ingredients)
  • < 70% Organic Ingredients ( < 70% organic ingredients)

All Manna Organics products contain between 95% and 100% organic and are therefore certified “Organic” by Quality Assurance International (QAI), which means that an organic certification organization, accredited by the United States Department of Agriculture, has validated that products labeled as “organic” meet the defined organic standards.

Dom Perignon and Artist Jeff Koons Partnership

The latest artist and  alcoholic beverage collaboration comes in the form of Jeff Koons‘s new bottle for Dom Perignon. To mark the occasion, Koons created a limited edition 2-foot sculpture based on his pre-existing 8-foot Balloon Venus
sculpture . 
 Those interested can pick up the sculpture for a
cool £15,500 GBP (approximately $24,943 USD) on a made-to-order basis.
Furthermore, Jeff Koons has designed limited edition Dom Perignon boxes,
pictured above, to celebrate his collaboration with the champagne
brand.
“I know that my mother will want one,” Koons said, smiling. “But I hope a
lot of collectors, people who are already involved with my work, will
give these as gifts to their friends.” A bargain when you consider the
recent news that Koons’s Balloon Dog is estimated to sell at auction this November for $35 to $55 million.

Barilla Pasta = Anti Gay…..Bertolli Pasta = PRO GAY

This was genius!  Bertolli pasta has been taking advantage of its rival Barilla’s misstep by posting pro-gay imagery on social media and speaking out about its support for the LGBT community.

“Pasta und Liebe für alle!” (Pasta and love for all) reads the caption on the photo posted to Facebook (above). The company also spoke with Adweek:

“We just wanted to spread the news that Bertolli welcomes everyone, especially those with an empty stomach.”

Adweek notes that the company has produced gay-themed ads in the past.

Barilla Pasta tells gays: ‘Eat another brand’

Barilla — one of the best known pasta brands around the world — is one
of Italy’s biggest advertisers, and for many years has used the image of
a happy family living in an idealised version of the Italian
countryside, with the slogan: “Where there’s Barilla, there’s home.”
“I would never do (a commercial) with a homosexual family, not for lack
of respect but because we don’t agree with them.
Ours is a classic
family where the woman plays a fundamental role,” Barilla, 55, said in
an interview with Radio 24 on Wednesday.

In the interview, Barilla said he opposed adoption by gay parents,
but was in favor of allowing gay marriage, which is not legal in Italy.
His comment about advertising was in response to a direct question about
whether he would ever feature a gay family in his company’s
commercials.

If gays “like our pasta and our advertising, they’ll
eat our pasta, if they don’t like it then they will not eat it and they
will eat another brand,” he said.

Aurelio Mancuso, head of gay
rights group Equality Italia, said Barilla’s comments were an “offensive
provocation” and called for a boycott of the company’s pasta, sauces
and snacks.

“We accept the invitation from the Barilla owner to
not eat his pasta,” Mancuso said. Many Italians used social media to
voice support for a boycott.

AGWA de Bolivia Herbal Liqueur

Agwa de Bolivia (usually shortened to AGWA) is a herbal liqueur made with Bolivian coca leaves and 37 other natural herbs and botanicals including green tea, ginseng, and guarana, distilled and produced in Amsterdam by BABCO Europe Limited. 

The coca leaf content of the drink, like that in Coca-Cola, has the cocaine alkaloids removed during production, and does not contain the drug.

The leaves used for the production of AGWA are picked at 2000 metres above sea level in the Andes. The leaves are then shipped under armed guard to Amsterdam, where they are distilled to a strength of 78-88% alc./vol. and 36 other botanical elements are added.

It mixes with just about everything!  We tried a bottle and some various concoctions. 

The Cocarita (AGWA’s twist on the Margarita):
Ingredients: 2oz Frozen AGWA, 1oz Tequila, Juice of 1-2 fresh limes.  
Method: Shake AGWA, Tequila & Lime Juice with ice. Strain into a salt-frosted 
Margarita glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
The AGWA Fresca:(pictured)
Method: A serving of Frozen AGWA poured over ice and some lime wheels in a long 
glass, and topped with club soda.
The Bolivian Rhapsody
Ingredients: 1.5oz AGWA, ½ fresh lime, 1 tsp. raspberry jam, 1 tsp. vanilla sugar, 1 dash 
cardamom bitters, 1 tsp. chocolate syrup
Method: Muddle lime, sugar, jam, and syrup; top with crushed ice in Collins glass. Add 
AGWA and bitters and stir. Garnish: lime zest
The Rainforest Caipirinha 
Ingredients: AGWA, Lime wedges, Brown sugar, Ice, Cane swizzle stick
Method: Muddle AGWA, lime wedges, brown sugar together, mix with crushed ice. 
Garnish with a cane swizzle stick.
Want to try a signature AGWA cocktail that works all year round? You can never 
go wrong with a classic recipe, the Bolivian Mojito, AGWA’s twist on the traditional 
drink, or the lime ritual, known as “Kryptonice.” 
Bolivian Mojito:
Ingredients: 1.5oz Frozen AGWA, 12 mint leaves, 2-3 lime wedges, 2 tsp. sugar, 7oz club 
soda, splash of your favorite rum.
Method: Gently crush the mint leaves in a long glass.  Squeeze the limes over the crushed 
mint, and add the sugar and crushed ice.  Add the AGWA, your favorite rum, and club 
soda and stir well.  Garnish with a fresh lime wedge and fresh mint leaves. 
The AGWA shot, also known as “Kryptonice”, is also a favorite.  Simply pour frozen 
AGWA in a shot glass and serve with a lime wedge!

Cowpokes – Naked Cowboys? Those Sheets are SO GAY!

Gunsmoke meets Tom of Finland!

If your mother comes to visit, these may not be sheets for her…

Vice Merchants, a rebelliously luxe bedding company, has released “Cowpokes,” a full line of sheets, pillowcases and throws aimed at gay men. Made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton, 400 thread count, fine Sateen bedding fabric, “Cowpokes” features a ranch scene of playfully undressed men engaging in acts of whimsical outdoor fun and farm work, while frolicking in the buff! Illustrated by K. Commodore, cows, horses and tractors further set the scene as hot men work hard and play hard in the foreground.

They are very high quality and soft, as me and my man, rolled around in the hay, on them this past weekend!

“We’re enthusiastic to expand our brand to cater to the gay community,” Jake Katz, president of Vice Merchants said. “’Cowpokes’ is a design unlike any other that allows gay men to spice up their bedroom in a subtle, yet enticing and playful manner. With these sheets, every night can feel like a sweaty day with the boys on the ranch.”

Vice Merchants is a company that believes your bedding should be as sexy and as much fun as bedtime activities. The company specializes in fine bedding that brings edgy, richly hued graphics created by illustrators.

They worked with Brooklyn-based artist K. Commodore has an M.A. degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, to create these fun sheets. Her work is known for its insightful and witty look at human sexuality, and has been exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the United States and Europe.

When asked, What was the motivation behind the fun farm setting???

Artists Katie Commodoresaid,” We all got together to brainstorm the next pattern and decided to go with a traditional toile. My art has always been about usurping traditional mediums or styles and using them as a vehicle for portraying sexuality. So the idea of taking a traditional toile and using fun homoerotic imagery made perfect sense! Traditional toile, which first became fashionable in the 16th century, has images of pastoral scenes; what’s more pastoral than cowboys and farm hands???

She says that some  other scenarios considered as well, “Oh Yes! Some of which we will make in the future! But there are only so many drawings I can work on at once!”

“Cowpokes” is available in all sheet sizes with prices ranging from $99 for a Twin Long Sheet set to $235 for a King Sheet set. The print is also available in duvet and sham sets, bed skirts, and throw pillows. A complete nine-piece bedding set can be purchased in Full for $399; Queen for $439; King (and California King) for $499.

You  won’t find these at Macy’s but you can order them now, discreetly online. And they will be shipped in a plain brown box. VIce Merchants.
