The Road To Success Of Doe Deere – From Homeless Russian Immigrant To CEO

Doe Deere is the founder of Lime Crime, which is a digital first cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics brand. She was born in Xenia Vorotova in Russia, and was raised in New York City. The Chief Executive Officer of Lime Crime Cosmetics founded her company in the fall of 2008. Recently, she was featured on Entrepreneur where she wrote about her road to becoming an entrepreneur, putting an emphasis on why United States is a good place for immigrants.

Doe Deere states that when she was young she saw America as a place where anything is possible, getting the message from music, movies, and magazines. She moved to the United States with her mother and her young sister when she was 17 years old, in 1998. The population in New York City was 7.4 million, which was a big contrast to the half million where she used to live in Izhevsk. Despite their efforts, they were forced to check into a homeless shelter in Manhattan on Lexington Avenue, where they stayed for 6 months, and continued to work and save money.

In 1999 they were introduced to Sanctuary for Families by a social worker. Sanctuary for Families is non-profit legal organization which helps women immigrants. Doe Deere’s mother was an accountant in Russia, but due to the fact that her papers were taking too long to transfer she was not able to get a job. The leader of Sanctuary for Families helped her mother get her first accountant job in America, and helped Doe Deere get into the Fashion Institute of Technology and her sister into Columbia University.

By the year 2000, the 3 were transferred from their homeless shelter to 110th Street in East Harlem at the Lehman Projects. Despite the area being considered gang territory, the 3 didn’t complain and continued to work hard. By late 2000s, Doe Deere adopted her famous moniker and launched her own company, Lime Crime in 2008 – with 35 employees in Los Angeles. She points out the fact that she has the United States to thank for giving her the opportunity to pursue her vision.

Coachella and Wengie: Fashion Inspirations for Every Age

When beauty blogger, Wengie, realized she needed to educate herself on various blogging platforms she had no idea it would launch her into internet stardom. Now boasting a massive one million (and counting) followers on her blog, she continues to grow as a blogger and role model to young girls and women everywhere. Giving her take on everything beauty and life, she engages her fans with her insightful and fabulous posts and videos.

One thing that Wengie really focuses on is giving her fans what they want, not just what she wants. This means talking about things that are important to her followers. For younger girls (and boys) she has a channel to offer advice on the challenges they might be facing in life. For beauty fanatics, she loves to give tutorials and insight into the latest trends and styles.

Another great leader in the fashion and beauty world is the massive music event, Coachella. Gracing the state of California every year, the music festival coaxes out celebrities from all over. This year Coachella saw long, luxurious locks and a mixture of fabulously nude makeup trends as well as wild and wacky ones. Nude lips, green lips, face jewels, and natural bronzers were rampant at the 2016 music festival, signaling a start to spring and summer fashion around the country.

If you are trying to stay up to date on the latest hair trends, one to follow is the long, beautiful locks that were seen at Coachella this year. While many celebrities showed up with expensive hair extensions, you can save a buck or two by investing in a good quality boar bristle brush to grow your hair out. These brushes are great for encouraging hair growth because they distribute oil from root to end, providing proper nourishment for your hair. In addition to this, the bristles stimulate the scalp which encourages hair growth.

No matter what look you go with, Coachella and Wengie are both great influences to turn your eyes to this coming season. Long hair and bold lips are everywhere, so don’t forget to invest in a good brush and a great lip color. Cheers to the coming summer!

YouTube Has Created A New Type Of Celebrity

Celebrities have existed in our world before electricity was even a thought. Royal families where the first celebrities people had, even when theater was widely popular in the early centuries royalty often out shined the actors themselves. Theater soon evolved into TV shows and movies. Music stars began gaining in popularity after the radio became a universal tool in every household and vehicle. Talented singers, actors and actresses littered advertisements, billboards and filled our homes when talk shows and late night shows where born.

Vlogging, or video blogging, sparked soon after YouTube took off and allowed users to upload their own videos. A new type of fame, ‘internet fame’, took hold of the younger generation and gave birth to many new faces that soon found themselves in a sea of online fans. Many famous YouTubers have videos revolving around comedy, much like actors, they engage their audience with their charisma and ability to make their audience laugh. Other vloggers use their channels to help people in certain areas like gaming tips, hair and make-up tutorials, crafts and art. These talented individuals never necessarily expected to become famous, but their helpful tips and tricks continued to draw crowds and lifted them into internet fame.

Wendy Huang, a famous YouTuber from Australia has coveted a large following from around the world and it all started four years ago. Wengie had been working at a digital marketing and media firm where she helped businesses with their blogs and social media. She insisted companies start their own blogs so she decided to take her own advice and start a small make-up and beauty blog. This spiraled into a widely trafficked beauty blog called ‘The Wonderful World of Wengie’ and is Australia’s number one Asian beauty channel.

Wengie’s love of make-up and fashion started at an early age and with no help from anyone around her she began reading magazines and teaching herself about make-up and fashion. From then she went on to message boards and forums, looking for make up tips for Asian women. Because of the lack of advertisement in America and Australia for Asian make-up and beauty, Wengie has taken it upon herself to be the help young Asian girls and women are looking for.
