How to Shop Sustainably for 2021

by

The end of 2020 marks the long-awaited finale to a disastrous year. But it also provides new opportunities: the end of the Trump administration opens up opportunities for movements and rights as restrictive legislation ebbs. But an issue that is perhaps one of the most pertinent is the environment.

The fashion industry is the second-largest consumer of water supply and contributes to 10% of total carbon emissions; and in total 10% of all textiles travel to landfills every year, as reported by BusinessInsider. If this trend persists, we can expect to see retreating glacier ices, alterations in climate-privy environments, and the disappearance of the year-round sea ice in the Arctic, as told by Climate.gov. It means losing Instagrammable igloo hotels and the extinction of more animal species upon those lost just earlier this year. It’s vital that the upcoming year is met with action then. 

Here are some tips to help:

1. Try your best to avoid fast-fashion brands – buy second-hand

The appeal of fast-fashion hidden behind big companies like Forever 21 and YesStyle is its inexpensiveness. This is made only by cheap, horrid cuts in human rights like their exploitation of child workers in underdeveloped nations. Instead, look to buy second hand from sellers through Instagram, Depop, and Poshmark, among others. Thrifting is also an option, however, use discretion as increased consumerism can drive prices up making thrift stores inaccessible to low-income families. 

2. Buy locally

Buying second-hand is half the battle as domestic shipping in and of itself causes pollution via gas emissions and packaging. Of course, there are circumstances that necessitate it but consider buying from local shops if you can. Buy from local businesses this gradually post-COVID environment as it supports them and you never know when you’ll find your next unique piece.

3. Research, research, research

When buying from companies otherwise, make sure to do your research beforehand. Utilize websites like https://goodonyou.eco/ to review a company’s efforts towards sustainability before investing in their work. 

Whether this article is a launchpad or a continuation of your awareness, make sure to continue researching and educating others on fashion sustainability. The effects of global warming on our environment are enduring and persisting and so should we be in trying for a better life.

What’s inside Jennifer Lopez’s JLO Beauty launch?

by

Cue the dance music, we are celebrating today! Two weeks ago when Jennifer Lopez hinted at the creation of her new beauty line on her Instagram page, the JLovers we’re asking some need-to-know questions. Is it a makeup line? Is it a skincare collection? 

After patiently waiting for the reveal of JLO Beauty, we are no longer curious. Announced today on @jlobeauty was the official lineup for her new skincare line. Featuring eight glow enhancing products from eye creams to cleansers, JLO is sharing her secret to achieving timeless skin. 

While it seems to be the recent trend for celebrities to create their own beauty line, bringing something new to the table is quite important. Luckily, JLO knows how to refer back to her roots and connect with her fans like it’s the early 2000’s and Jenny just came back on the block! Lopez is bringing a fresh, new spin to the launch of beauty.

If there’s anyone that can wear beauty on the inside and out, it’s JLO. Our favorite surprise from the reveal was her passion for taking care of your body and well-being. She told Elle USA that beauty starts with self love, positive thinking, and taking your dietary supplements! Being released in the collection mid-January is her very own dietary supplement to help you maintain and care for that inner love.  

As if you needed another reason to #fangirl over JLO (besides the obvious), in her Instagram Live Stream she connected with her viewers on how important to her it was to create affordable pricing. After all, beauty is really for everyone.

“I wanted to create everyday products that were affordable, yet still very luxurious,” said Lopez in her Instagram Live. “I love them, I know you guys are going to love them.”

Touching on her chic, gold product packaging in the live, she said “they are beautiful products and they will look so nice on your vanity.” 

JLO Beauty prices range from $18 – $79. Sign me up (literally)! 

Starting now, you can sign up on jlobeauty.com to get early access and pre-order her newest collection on December 8th! 

Here’s what’s inside Jennifer Lopez’s newest beauty and skincare collection: 

THAT JLO GLOW Multitasking Serum 

THAT LIMITLESS GLOW Multitasking Mask

THAT BIG SCREEN Broad Spectrum SPF 30

THAT BLOCKBUSTER Wonder Cream 

THAT HIT SINGLE Gel-Creme Cleanser 

THAT FRESH TAKE Eye Cream 

THAT STAR FILTER Complexion Booster 

THAT INNER LOVE Dietary Supplement 

The secret to soft and glowy skin doesn’t end at your nighttime facial routine. To wrap up the Instagram Live launch, JLO told her viewers to stay tuned for 2021 because “there will be a glow for body coming out later next year.” 

Once again, JLO you’ve done it again! Congrats on the beauty launch! Follow @jlobeauty on Instagram for more product updates and more.

Luka Sabbat is GenZ Fashion

by

Whether you recognize him from Freeform’s new Grown-ish or the oversized coat meme from this past winter, Luka Sabbat has been heralded as “the coolest kid on the internet” since he was 18 years old.

That was back when the native New Yorker began his modeling career by walking at Yeezy’s Season 1 presentation at New York Fashion Week in 2015. Now the digital sensation has stretched his career out far past just modeling. As a self-titled “creative entrepreneur,” Sabbat has ambitions across many different lines which can be seen in his project HOTMESS, created with Noah Dillon. The collaboration not only involves photographs, but clothing, furniture, and anything else that the two want to artistically explore. With a fluidity through his interests, absurd style, fashion takes, and interest in his individuality, Sabbat is capturing something quintessentially GenZ.

 GenZ has recently seized the fashion market as they’ve began taking up more and more consumer space. As someone at the forefront of the latest generation to come to age, Sabbat told Nordstrom’s blog that while there’s great content in the world, “I don’t feel like a lot of it was for my age group, or my scene. There needs to be more.” Rather than the old, traditional things we’ve all seen before, this new movement is focused on the fast-paced demand from something new and extreme. Since Sabbat determines his next process by Googling different combinations of key words to make sure his ideas are original, it is no doubt he shares this mindset.

Take one look at his Instagram and you’ll be met with a mix of high and low-fashion; Balenciaga mixed with some thrift shop find to create a style that wouldn’t look good on anyone else. There is an aura of authenticity and individuality in each of his outfits that makes it impossible to copy because it embodies him—as said to Miss Vogue: “I just do what I like, and I don’t really pay attention to what is being said.” This ethos can be seen throughout GenZ’s fashion interest. They want to look like no one else, to fight the expectations and ‘limits’ of traditional fashion. Rules like not being able to mix patterns or layer denim are things of the past. Wearing what speaks to you fills the GenZ fashion ethos.

 Beyond being an image of the growing digital native, Sabbat has inspiration out side of himself. Above all else, he told Hypebeast,

 “I dress like I’m in a video game” and cited Dudley from Street Fighter as his biggest fashion icon. As subcultures fade away with the digital, the  multimedia approach Sabbat—and many GenZers—takes to style is unsurprising. Kids no longer only have their favorite bands or TV shows to look up to but Instagram stars, YouTubers, video game characters, etc. Above all, however, in this new, fast-paced world, to be exciting and excited reigns supreme.

It’s no secret that Instagram is one of our favorite social networks ever created to share photos of who we are and what we love with the world. Making your Instagram into something “Instagram worthy” has become a social media goal for many of us in the past year. From monochromatic themes to colorful photos that just pop off of our screens—we’re constantly not only looking to create the best Instagram accounts out there, but to follow them too.

Mother’s Day Blogger Series: Marlyn Pena

by

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and our Cliché family couldn’t be happier to celebrate our mothers and mother figures all round the world. In honor of all that they do, we’re introducing you to phenomenal mom bloggers that put the “super” in Super Mom with our Mother’s Day Blogger Series.

Marlyn Pena, from the Instagram page @littleredbowtique, is one momma that we’ve become smitten with. Each photo she posts is filled with glowing smiles, good vibes, and her delightful baby boy, Bryce. Her humble nature and modest, quirky style are something we absolutely adore, and just had to share with all of you. Get to know more about Marlyn and her beautiful life by reading our interview with her and catching up on her Instagram page!

Cliché: What inspires you to create content on Instagram?
Marlyn Pena: My son, Bryce, is definitely my number one inspiration. Time flies when you have a child, and I want to capture all of the little details of each stage he goes through. I love being able to scroll through my Instagram page to see how much he’s grown.

How do you manage to maintain your social network while being a mom? Any tips?
Many of the photos I post are just moments I snap throughout the day. I like to keep my phone close by just in case there’s a moment I want to capture. Most of my favorite photos are the candid ones.  

Being that Mother’s Day is right around the corner, how do you celebrate the holiday?
Last year was my first Mother’s Day, and it was so special. Our family gets together and celebrates the three mothers in our family: my mom, my sister, and I. We go out and just get spoiled with love all day. I am so excited for this year’s Mother’s Day!

IMG_4349

What’s a day in your life like?
We have a routine, but my little wild one likes to keep it far from boring. Bryce used to wake me up, but I’ve been waking up before him recently. I get to brush my teeth and freshen up a bit before my little boss awakes. Once he wakes up, I get him all ready for breakfast. After breakfast, we like to go on a walk. This seems to be his favorite part of the day. He is always giddy at the beginning of our walks. He’ll be smiling and admiring his surroundings. By the end of the walk, he’s fast asleep. Nap time is when I get things done around the house. When he wakes up, it’s lunch time. I feel like I spend a lot of my day in the kitchen. Whether I’m whipping up something or cleaning. The cleaning and laundry are never ending! During all of this I’m running after Bryce. He recently learned to walk, and this boy is nonstop! There are also days where he wants me to carry him around with me all day long. I don’t mind it one bit, because I know that these days are fleeting. I want to enjoy my little baby for as long as I can. Once daddy comes come, I’m chopped liver. Seeing them love on each other is one of my favorite things in the whole world. I love my boys! We spend the rest of the day relaxing with daddy.

How would you describe your personal style?
My style is simple, classic, and comfortable. You can usually find me in t-shirt and jeans. I’m still breastfeeding so most of my wardrobe is nursing friendly. Button down tops and dresses are my go-to’s!  

IMG_2703

When it came to dressing pre-baby and post-baby, how was the transition? Did your style change drastically?
My style has changed quite a bit ever since I became a mother. Comfort is my main focus now, because I don’t know how long I could last carrying my 24-pound baby in six inch heels. I do like to make an effort to get out of my PJs and clean myself up a bit everyday, because it makes me feel good. It’s so easy to get lost in motherhood. I believe it’s important to take care of ourselves to effectively take care of the others around you.

Scenario time! You have a ton of errands to run with your babe. What do you wear and bring to keep everything running smoothly?
Jeans, a button down top, and clogs are my mom uniform. Casual, comfy, but still presentable. Button down tops also make nursing so easy while running errands. My arms have gotten so much stronger ever since I became a mother. I say that Bryce is responsible for that, but I think my diaper bag has contributed as well. That thing is just as heavy as my child! Snacks are always number one if I want everything to run smoothly. Along with diapers and wipes, of course. A fed, clean, and well rested baby is a happy baby.

Do you have a beauty routine? If so, what are your favorite skincare or makeup products?
Motherhood and dark circles go hand in hand. I am so glad concealer exists! I currently use Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind. The coverage is amazing and it makes me look like I got a full night of sleep! I’ve also been using Maybelline’s Line Stilleto for a few years. It’s my go-to liquid eyeliner. It’s so easy to apply and stays on all day!

What do you hope to create and spread on Instagram?
Being a mother is amazing, but it can be overwhelming and lonely at times. I hope that my posts make someone feel that they are not alone. I have connected with so many amazing ladies with this little app that have encouraged me through the journey of motherhood. Ladies that I’ve never met in person, but that I consider my friends. I hope I can encourage and uplift others with my posts.
