CK One Campaign

This fragrance is so nostalgic for me, taking me back to my teenage years of Seventeen Magazine and My So Called Life episodes. Now CK One is back with a new commercial shot by Mario Sorrenti and featuring well known models and artists including Petra Collins, Taeyang, Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), Samantha Urbani, Evian Christ, Say Lou Lou, Kelela, Ali Michael, her BF Marcel Castenmiller, singer Soko.

The perspective is from the camera phone held by the models themselves, there is a dedicated Tumblr page (ckmeforme) that features their selfies and what not. On to the next generation, I see.

earth-song:

The goats are found in Morocco and they climb these argan trees each spring and summer to eat the leaves. How does a goat climb a tree? Well, like you or I would via the low-hanging limbs. And evidently they have enough balance to tight-rope walk branches out to the tasty leaves and nuts. When a goat loses its balance  and it will  it falls out of the tree like a 100-pound acorn and lands with a thud. No biggie.

But here’s where things get weirder than a bunch of tree-climbing goats: The goats eat the nuts from the trees, but the farmers in the area want to harvest those nuts for oil. If the goats get to a tree before they do, the farmers collect the nuts the goats drop and they also pick through the goat’s manure to find the kernels of the nuts, from which they then extract oil. The oil is used for food. It’s so precious that people carry vials of it around their necks to pour into their couscous, according to The Dallas Morning News.

And now here’s where things get even more surprising than eating oil from nuts digested by tree-climbing goats: That oil is not only tasty, it also has anti-aging qualities. So, people don’t just want to eat it, they want to slather it on their faces to prevent wrinkles. In 2005, Prince Albert of Monaco, UNESCO, several chefs and “an army of grandes dames excited by the oil’s reputed anti-aging qualities” formed an alliance to create a global market for the oil, according to NYT. Why? Well naturally it has to do with the tree-climbing goats.

Apparently the goats were overgrazing the argan tree, and the tree was slowly going extinct. To protect the tree and its precious oil (which is so vital to the people who live in the area), the alliance hoped to make the oil popular to the greater culinary and cosmetic world. That would push the locals to protect the tree and come up with ways to harvest its nuts for a larger market. As part of this initiative, the alliance made some trees off limits to goats from May to August. That’s what I said  no tree-climbing goats from May to August.

Much to the argan trees’ dismay, the goats still climb them, though. And if you’re visiting Morocco and you’re like the Dallas Morning News writer, a guide will drive you out to see the goats in the trees, if you so desire. If I ever go to Morocco, I know I’ll want to see those goats.

Goats that serve an anti aging purpose.

I’m interested in trying out the new L’Oréal Makeup Genius app. Said to have taken over 10 years to develop, and uses the same technology used to transform Brad Pitt in the Curious Case of Benjamin Button, the app takes an uploaded picture of you to give you an idea of what different shades look like on your eyes, cheeks, and lips. 

Now available on iTunes, and Androids later this year.

Elizabeth Arden is expanding their brand into Africa and have chosen Nigerian-born Adeola Ariyo as their newest and first African ambassador.

The model, who first started her career at age 13, had this to say about the partnership: ‘Being chosen as an Elizabeth Arden Brand Ambassador in Africa is an incredible honor. Elizabeth Arden herself was an entrepreneur, a women’s advocate and champion for holistic beauty, inspiring women all over the world. I’m proud to be associated with a brand that embodies such important values.’

Congrats to Adeola!
