No B.S. Skin Care Announces Partnership with Sarah Hyland

No B.S. Skin Care has continued to make waves within the beauty industry by providing clean, non-toxic skincare that delivers effective results, all while being offered at an affordable price. This well-known brand has proven that they aren’t afraid to call out the B.S. of the industry and in return, immediately gained a loyal following praising them for their transparency. Now, No B.S. Skin Care is joining forces with a leader who is as passionate as they are about saying “no” to toxic chemicals, and is pleased to announce their new partnership with Sarah Hyland.

The widely-popular American actress and producer, most known for her role as Haley Dunphy on ABC’s Modern Family, has been open about cleaning up her lifestyle with her health in mind—starting with what she puts in her body and on her skin. Together, Hyland and No B.S. Skin Care are partnering to educate people everywhere on the importance of taking control of their own health, starting with their skin.

“Staying healthy is important to me, and that means taking control of what I put in and on my body. My lifestyle detox started with clean eating, but when I realized how many toxins were hidden in the products I used every day, I knew I had to make a big switch,” says Hyland. “My fans wanted in on the process, so the pressure was on to find something really good—for me and for them. No B.S. resonated with me because their products are made with good-for-you ingredients that actually improve skin health. My No B.S. regimen has four powerful basics you can use every day to clean up your skincare game. My hope is that everyone who tries it will feel so good in their skin that they don’t mind going makeup-free.”

Hyland has curated her own personal skincare regimen with No B.S. Skin Care and is sharing it directly with fans. Her personalized regimen will include four of her favorite, most-used No B.S. Skin Care products including the Gentle Foaming Cleanser, Purifying Facial Toner, Vitamin C + E Serum, and the Day + Night Hyaluronic Cream – all included in a bundle on the No B.S. Skin Care website.

In addition, Hyland and No B.S. Skin Care will be offering fans a once in a lifetime opportunity where they can receive a personalized interactive video call-in from Hyland. Throughout the video, she will be sharing her journey of self-improvement and the importance of steering clear of harmful ingredients. Everyone who participates in the video call-in will also receive an exclusive additional 15% off discount on Hyland’s curated skincare bundle.

No B.S. Skin Care is devoted to never using harmful ingredients like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetics, and toxic petrochemicals commonly found in other skincare products. The brand is proud to be working with Hyland and aims to strip away the deception of the beauty industry by providing better, healthier skincare powered by truth, not toxins.

“Sarah’s story really resonated with our team and our brand because like so many of our customers, she realized that what she ate, drank, and used on her skin could contribute to toxins building up her body,” says Diana Briceno, CEO of No B.S. Skin Care. “At No B.S., we love sharing stories like Sarah’s to bring awareness to the importance of clean beauty ingredients and products. This is exactly why she is the perfect partner to inspire people to take control of their own health, and cut out all of the unnecessary, toxic B.S. they don’t need, starting with their skin care.”

No B.S. Skin Care encourages everyone to join their community and mission of ditching toxic ingredients and sharing their experiences using the hashtags: #SarahLivesNoBS and #SarahsCall.

Tall Sisters Empower Other Tall Girls to Embrace their Height With their Fashion Brand that Fits!

As a tall girl you have two choices, you can stay low or you can stand tall. At 6 foot 4 inches and  5 foot 10 ten inches, Amalli Talli founders and sisters Amy and Alli know that extra inches aren’t the key to loving your height.

With the passion to create stylish confidence among all tall ladies, they decided to build a brand and clothing line that recognized the various proportions that tall girls and women can have.

The sisters who are embracing their height and empowering others to do the same with their fashion brand that caters to tall fashionistas, Amalli Talli. With a huge following on Instagram of 35K followers, loyal fans are grateful to these sisters for filling the void in the fashion marketplace. It is a trend… The Netflix show “Tall Girl” may have brought this movement to the forefront.

Designing clothing for tall women is something major retailers haven’t exactly “measured up” to offering. The ones that do merely add some extra inches to the bottoms of pants or sleeves. Empowering tall women and girls to recognize they’re more than their height, two tall sisters created their brand Amalli Talli focusing on the hottest fashion trends of today that fit a range of tall proportions.

Discover the apparel that flatters and fits a range of tall from different length tops and dresses to a variety of pant inseams from 34 to 37 inches. Clothing styles match those sold by popular retailers to chic boutiques. As Amy and Alli like to say, “When style and fit come together, it is truly life changing.”

Change your wardrobe, change your life with these tall essentials:

  • Dresses and skirts
  • Jackets
  • Jeans and leggings
  • Jumpsuits and rompers
  • Sweaters
  • Tops

Promoting the self image of everyday women, you can find guest try-on testimonials on their Instagram stories. Follow them on Instagram @amallitalli. For more information, you can visit https://amallitalli.com/.

The company name ROMA means love – Give Poverty the Boot.

After spending years working at Neiman Marcus, Romanian-born Samuel Bistrian wanted to take his passion for quality and customer service a step further by giving back to people in need. Growing up extremely poor, he realized how big the impact of rain boots are in a child’s life in poverty-stricken countries and from that, his business model for ROMA Boots was created and the company’s tagline “Giving Poverty the Boot” was born. After almost a decade, ROMA Boots is fulfilling their commitment by providing aid, creating a culture of empowerment for those living in poverty and educating children to contribute their gifts and talents to society. The company name ROMA means love.

On April 3, 2010, despite being in the middle of an economic recession, Samuel Bistrian started ROMA Boots, the company that merges fashion with philanthropy to ‘Give Poverty the Boot.’ After spending years working at Neiman Marcus, Bistrian developed a passion for quality and customer service and wanted to take that a step further by giving back to people in need. Growing up extremely poor, he realized how big the impact of rain boots are in a child’s life in poverty-stricken countries and from that, his business model was created.

“I never considered myself a businessman or even an entrepreneur. Even when I wanted to leave Neiman Marcus to start ROMA, some of my superiors told me that it was a poor decision, and to some degree they were right. I did not have much of a plan as the country was in a recession. I had $5,000 in my bank account, significant credit card debt and student loans, but over all of that, I had passion,” explained Samuel Bistrian, Founder and CEO of ROMA Boots.

With the mission of bringing impoverished children throughout the world hope, love, and lasting change through aid and education, for every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. ROMA’s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid but to educate. By doing so ROMA is empowering impoverished children around the world to break out of the cycle of poverty and contribute their gifts and talents to society.

“Having grown up so poor, ‘Giving poverty the boot’ was everything I always wanted to do, to help those less fortunate just like someone once helped me. But I knew from the start that without love as the foundation, all of my good intentions will result in disappointment,” told Bistrian.

After the first few years of launching, ROMA was a success but he wanted to expand. Finding the solution that any logical businessman would, he borrowed money and took on investors. While things seemed to be off without a hitch, there were downsides that came from this.

“All the pressures of growing a business can cause one to lose their purpose and you no longer have that same passion to help those in poverty when you can’t pay your own bills and you have partners putting enormous pressure on you,” Bistrian expressed.

It took a family crisis to put things back in perspective to help him rediscover his purpose; helping those who can’t help themselves. Hitting rock bottom was the motivator for Bistrian to take back the company that was once all his. Over the course of 9 months, he was able to buy out his investors and today, Samuel Bistrian is returning to his roots as the sole owner of ROMA Boots, running a successful business, giving back and doing what he loves.
