THE PAW PROJECT is the inspiring film that follows the David and Goliath story of a grassroots movement led by one woman. It is a mission to change laws and protect cats, both large and small, from the cruelty of declawing. THE PAW PROJECT shows how the movement began, how it continues to prevail despite the efforts of well-funded professional veterinary associations.

Declawing is the amputation of the last bone in a cat’s toes. In the United States today, approximately 25% of domesticated cats are declawed. Despite the physical and behavioral harm inflicted on cats who are declawed, many veterinarians continue to recommend the procedure, which costs upwards of $1,200. per hour – even for very young kittens.

THE PAW PROJECT takes us inside the issue of declawing. Sharing testimony from industry professionals and pet-owners alike, THE PAW PROJECT examines the emotional and physical cost that a cat pays when declawed; and reveals the profit that the procedure generates for veterinary doctors across the nation. Despite the physical and behavioral harm inflicted on cats that are declawed, many veterinarians continue to recommend the procedure, which costs upwards of $1,200.00 per hour – even for very young kittens.  Veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Conrad wants it stop. While it often puts her at odds with many in her professional field, she continues to lead the struggle. 

“I had to reach wider audiences, with this new tool that uncovered truths about declawing. That’s when I decided to make the film.” says Conrad.

Step by step, the film follows Conrad as she refutes representatives from the American Veterinary Association (AVMA), all in her effort to protect the well-being of these felines.  THE PAW PROJECT chronicles her journey from pet examinations to legislative hearings, where she urges elected officials to ban declawing in their cities.  

THE PAW PROJECT is a documentary written, directed and produced by Dr. Jennifer Conrad. It is her added effort to ensure that everyone is of the dangers of declawing. She hopes that THE PAW PROJECT will be used as a tool to change the nation.

“When people watch this film, I want them to walk out of that theater feeling inspired that they can help end this horrible practice. I want them to feel motivated and capable.” says Conrad.

THE PAW PROJECT will be theatrical released in Fall 2013. It will open in New York on September 27th; special 1 week engagement at the IFC Center. It will open in Los Angeles on October 18th, a 1 week engagement in at the Pasadena Playhouse 7. Additional afternoon screenings will run at Laemmle Santa Monica, scheduled for October 18th and 19th.

LOVE it: Pretty and Soft Curls with @MixedChicks

20130601 143214 768x1024 LOVE it: Pretty and Soft Curls with @MixedChicks I’ve been looking for a good leave-in conditioner for my natural hair for ages now, but haven’t been able to find one that delivers. You can only imagine my excitement when I received a lovely package full of Mixed Chicks goodies in the mail a few weeks ago,  AND in that package was a leave-in conditioner! Now because I haven’t had much luck with leave-in conditioners, I was a little apprehensive about how well this conditoner would work, but I’ve heard good things about Mixed Chicks products so I was more than down to try.

Sunday is ‘Hair Day’ and this is when I do my usual co-wash, deep condition and re-do my protective style. So for the last few Sundays I’ve been using the Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner before putting in my twists/flat twists. I’ve noticed that it actually takes me a shorter time to do my twists/flat twits as the conditioner softens my hair right away, and there are hardly any tangles, therefore less breakage. Score!

IMG 20130617 2050191 LOVE it: Pretty and Soft Curls with @MixedChicks

Defined, fluffy, shiny and healthy curls, I couldn’t ask for more!

Since using Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner, my hair is still soft, and fluffy even after taking my twists out, and one of the best things is that there is no flakiness, which is what used to get on my nerves when I used other leave-in conditioners. I’ve also noticed a significant amount in breakage. I know that we lose about a 100 strands of hair a day *gasp*, but I still don’t like to see my hair break, so I love that my hair barely breaks, if at all, before and after using the Mixed Chicks conditioner.

Pros:

  • Instantly soft
  • Little to no breakage, which means increased retention, therefore increased growth.
  • Did I mention super soft hair????
  • Defined curls
  • No flakiness AT ALL!
  • Increased moisture and shine.
  • I live for how sleek and defined my twists look!

20130624 190945 768x1024 LOVE it: Pretty and Soft Curls with @MixedChicks Radiantly rollin’ with Mixed Chicks!

Big thank you to Mixed Chicks for sharing this with me, and for bringing my leave-in conditioner hunt to an end! I can’t wait to try the other goodies!

Have you tried Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner?  What are your thoughts?

PicsArt 1376422981276 Review LOVE: The Mujjo Galaxy S3 Wallet @MujjoStore

Holland has been showing me some l-o-v-eeeeee! I recently got a cute little package from Mujjo, the Dutch designer of mobile accessories. They recently launched a white version of their praised collection of mobile wallets and sleeves, and were so kind to send me one to try out. I couldn’t be happier, because as much as I love my little lady bug case, it was time for a change!

DSC04649 818x1024 Review LOVE: The Mujjo Galaxy S3 Wallet @MujjoStore

I have to say that I don’t normally carry cases like this, but this little creation gives me LIFE! I love how clean, simple and cute it is, AND I especially love that I can carry my phone and contents of my wallet without having to take my purse, which if you know me, is perfect! If I need to make a quick run to the grocery store, there’s no need for me to grab my purse, I just grab my Mujjo wallet and I’m good to go.

Features:

  • 3mm 100% wool felt with anti-peeling treatment
  • Water repellent
  • Smart storage compartment

“The snug tailored Samsung Galaxy S3 wallet combines minimalism with long lasting elegant accents and features a unique combination of 100% felt and high quality leather.”

The Mujjo Galaxy S3 Wallet is totally cute, clever and keeps me connected! Now I just need to get one for my iPad mini and I’ll be set! Along with the Samsung Galaxy S3 (and S4), they also make wallets and sleeves for iPhones, iPads (minis too), and MacBooks (Pros and Airs too).

The LA Auto show is now officially under way – kicking off the festivities last night was an incredible event hosted by smart USA featuring celebrity designer Jeremy Scott. The world premiere of a customized showcar titled smart forjeremy took place at Jim Henson studios where a vehicle with Jeremy’s signature wings was revealed to the public. And for those interested in a car like this for themselves, this car is an electric vehicle that will be available to consumers in 2013.

Adding to the event experience was a performance by M.I.A. Who lit up the stage next to the car. Some fans in the audience included Perez Hilton, Liberty Ross, Cameron Silver and ASAP Rocky.

I love the smartcar since I first saw it in Germany on my 11th Grade trip. the forglossy smart will look white with a fun fur pink interior with the license plate UNQRBT. icon smile Jeremy Scott for Smartcar Unique Rabbit. Yup!
