Ms. Panagakis had vowed to honor the brand’s original concept and values while it’s currently under her leadership.
Stacy Panagakis will strategically work alongside the brand’s longtime chief creative officer, Sasha Valentine. They’ll continue to preserve the brand’s whimsical style and create wildly bold colors for its future products. Ms. Panagakis has vast experience in the beauty and personal care industry.

The company’s mainstay lip products are best known for having nontraditional hues such as sky blue, mossy green and lilac. It quickly became sensationalized online by Gen Xers everywhere and ended up garnering over 4.2 million followers on Instagram. The product’s formulas contain zero animal byproducts and are never tested on animals. Tengram’s new acquisition will ultimately work to enhance and build the brand up to its truest potential and more.
It has become common for more households to drink bottled water. There are various reasons why people join in the craze versus drinking plain tap water. Although there are hundreds of options to choose from, bottled water is not created equal concerning who has the best.
Superior bottled water needs to be researched. If a consumer is going to pay for the best in class, then it needs to be so. Make sure that the water is coming exactly where it says it is.
For a newer and much different line of bottled water, Waiakea’s volcanic water is just that. This water comes from a volcano in Hawaii. This is not just any volcano either. Muana Lao volcano is the actual filtration process for Waiakea.
This naturally high alkaline water goes through a massive process that includes 14,000 feet of volcanic rock. Since it rains more than 95% of the year there, constant water supply is readily available. The water is never stagnant because of the continuous rain. In addition to the natural water cleansing system, the water has many minerals like magnesium and calcium.
Muana Lao is one out of five volcanoes to make up the beautiful state of Hawaii. This naturally enriched island chain is a perfect place of Waiakea to call home. The volcano itself has been measured as the tallest mountain in the whole world from base to summit. With all of the added benefits from nature that goes into each Waiakea water bottle, this is no ordinary water.
Using nature and the environment in conjunction, Waiakea Volcanic Water has health benefits by having a higher alkaline level than most, which can reduce acid reflux and heartburn. There were studies done that showed people who drank alkaline water more stay hydrated better. And another study showed that people who consumed this type of water had a better probability of not developing Alzheimer’s.
The added benefits and natural taste prove that this is the best water in the business. Taking care of one’s health should be the highest priority, and it starts with water consumption.

Back in the late 1990s a businessman by the name of Rick Scott was busy defrauding U.S. taxpayers out of millions of dollars by way of Medicare fraud. Scott was CEO of Columbia/HCA, a network of healthcare facilities that used shady billing tactics to line the pockets of corporate executives.
True to course, slippery Rick Scott stymied prosecutors, invoked the 5th Amendment and resigned his position before he could get fitted with a conviction and an orange jumpsuit. By 2011 he was the new governor of Florida.
Scott used what he learned by playing fast-and-loose with huge amounts of money to grease the wheels for his two campaigns for Florida’s top job — now Scott wants to be a United States Senator. It seems he is once again up to his old tricks. Find out more about the endorsed candidate at End Citizens United
A group called End Citizens United has filed a complaint with the U.S. election commission charging that Scott is violating the rules. It appears that Scott’s campaign is illegally benefiting from millions of dollars raised by an ultra-right super PAC called New Republican.
A super PAC can raise and donate as much money as it wants to any candidate, but it cannot coordinate directly with the that campaign. That appears to be what Rick Scott has been doing.
It’s just another example of Big Money in politics corrupting the system. End Citizens United was founded to combat exactly that. The group is determined to get Big Money out of the American election systems once and for all.
End Citizens United is a grassroots organization formed in 2015. It has raised some $35 million ahead of the 2018 midterm elections to support candidates who have come out strongly in favor of campaign finance reform. ECU raised the money it did by accepting only small donations that average just $14 each. It accepts no corporate cash or huge donations from greedy oligarchs and billionaires.
End Citizens United officials say that Rick Scott is a classic example of wealthy elites with dicey track records of greed and corruption who now want even more power by taking high places in government office. Learn more: http://endcitizensunited.org/our-team/
Over the past decade, Jeunesse Global has emerged as one of the top health and beauty brands in the world. Its incredible rise almost defies belief. The company was founded less than nine years ago in the garage of a retired Florida couple. Now, it ranks among the most important and lucrative health and beauty brands in America and across the world. And all of this success is largely attributable to the hard work, dedication and immense entrepreneurial skill of its founders, Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis.
In the summer of 2009, Ray and Lewis found themselves newly retired. They had recently sold yet another business, and they wanted to spend more time with each other and their growing number of grandkids. However, the couple didn’t count on the immense boredom and sense of purposelessness that would set in quickly after they had left the fast-paced world of business in which they had so superlatively thrived.
As a result, Ray and Lewis decided to start selling a few health and beauty items out of the garage of their sprawling Florida mansion. They quickly began growing the company, with Ray selling the company’s business plan and Lewis developing new products that she based on unmet market niches. Before long, the couple had dubbed their new venture Jeunesse Global. One of the most important brands in health and beauty was born.
All along, it has been Jeunesse Global’s excellent lineup of highly original and effective products that has allowed the company to rise so quickly from obscurity into an international mega-corporation. One example of the kinds of products that have allowed such thrilling success has been the firm’s Luminesce skincare crème and moisturizer. As a standalone moisturizer, Luminesce performs right at the top of its class. It has been ranked as one of the best moisturizers when put up against some of the most established and competitive brands in the world.
Luminesce also contains the company’s anti-aging formula that is simply known as APT-200. This has been proven to reduce wrinkles, prevent the formation of new ones and to give skin a youthful, healthy glow.
