behind Mica gem is simple, as people improve their your own lives

millions of children that die each year from malaria because they
can’t afford an inexpensive mosquito net to sleep under.

With the philosophy of ” One Bottle = One Net = One Life” in mind,
for every bottle of Mica Gem’s Humana fragrance sold, a mosquito net
will be donated to Project Mosquito Net, is a non-profit project
dedicated to providing insecticide treated bed nets to children and
pregnant mothers in Kenya to prevent malaria infections and deaths.

Who is involved in Mica Gem?
* Kayla Ewell, Vicki from The Vampire Diaries
* Samantha James , recording artist
* Mark Moreno, former professional surfer, now an acclaimed DJ/producer
* Forrest Shearer, professional snowboarder and ambassador for
Protect Our Winters

Mica Gem was started by Sarah Reilly, who with her husband Mike, a
three-time national amateur champion and former World Qualifying
Series professional surfer, who saw first hand through their travels
how some of life’s most basic needs aren’t being met for children
around the world. Sarah reached out to her personal network and
brought together a small lineup of family and friends with collective
backgrounds in action sports, philanthropic pursuits and a passion
for fragrance to help the company get off the ground.

Rachel Weisz’s new ads for Bulgari!

She has Italian in her blood.

So actress Rachel Weisz is the perfect pick for Bulgari’s latest fragrance campaign.

Clutching a bottle of Jasmin Noir scent and draped in diamonds the 41-year-old flashes some smouldering looks.

Shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott who recently snapped Naomi Campbell for Gucci, Rachel is pictured alongside a live lion, one of the emblems of the luxury label.

These are preview images of the Los Angeles shoot with the full campaign revealed in August.

The mother-of-one joins the likes of actresses Julianne Moore and Kirsten Dunst who have previously modelled for Rome-based Bulgari.
A spokesperson for the brand which range includes watches, handbags, fragrances, accessories, and hotels said: ‘Rachel Weisz embodies the quintessential contemporary woman.

‘Her beauty, portrays simple yet extremely intriguing femininity.’

This isn’t the first time that the actress has fronted a perfume campaign as in 2006 she was chosen as the ambassador for Burberry’s London alongside Ioan Gruffudd.

At the time she said that perfumes with a sandalwood base were her favourite however Jasmin Noir has notes of gardenia petals, green sap and Sambac jasmine.

Although born in Westminster, London, Rachel’s mother, Edith is of Jewish and Italian descent.

This collaboration comes just weeks after news of her secret, New York wedding to Bond star Daniel Craig emerged.

The newly-weds will star together in the thriller Dream House released this autumn.

During her career Rachel has been featured on the cover of numerous magazines including Vogue and Esquire and was named L’Oréal’s global ambassador in 2010.

Soothe your sandal-weary feet!

Kick foot odor to the curb. According to N.Y.C. dermatologist Hilary Reich, washing feet daily with an antibacterial soap will fend off most odor-causing microbes. But refreshing with a spritz of The Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray ($10, thebodyshop-usa.com) will deodorize and put pep in your step—literally. (Swapping your sandals every other day will also give odors time to dissipate.)

Having tired, blistered toes is no walk on the beach. Slip off your sandals and give your feet some rest and relaxation with a ten minute soak. “After soaking, remove dead skin by scrubbing vigorously with a pumice stone,” says New York dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf, who recommends Epsom salt soaps to her patients. We like the Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Sea Foam Foot Soak ($15; crabtree-evelyn.com), which is infused with skin-soothing seaweed and algae extract.

Open-toed sandals are perfect for the summer, but that also means your feet get more exposure to the elements. “Put on a hydrating lotion to lock in moisture after removing dead skin,” advises Jennifer Lynn, spa director at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Las Vegas. Butter London Powder Finish Foot Creme ($28; butterlondon.com) hydrates feet with shea and coco butter, but doesn’t leave a too-slick finish.

Latest lip color trend: orange lipstick!

According to Vogue, orange/coral lipstick is the hottest lip color trend!

“For women whose skin tone falls somewhere between warm and cool, that’s where a coral comes in,” says Dubroff of versatile pink-tinged versions of mango and papaya.

Listen closely and you could almost hear the collective intake of breath as designer Raf Simons’s neon-orange column skirt for Jil Sander came floating down the runway for spring. With its palette-cleansing power, the buoyant shade seemed an instant antidote to fashion’s dwindling love affair with all things short, dark, and moody. As it turns out, it’s every bit as compelling on the lips, where it radiates a similarly addictive blend of couture elegance and unabashed optimism. “Orange is bright, it’s beautiful, it’s a little bit extreme. It’s a great alternative to your classic red lip,” says makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi of the new summer staple, which looks as fresh with a Missoni bikini as it does with a crisp white Alexander Wang sundress.

Arriving in a range of juicy shades—tangerine, coral, papaya, cantaloupe—and textures this season, it’s also far more wearable than you might expect. “Orange is a punchy pop of color, but if you’re nervous about going for full pigment, you can always try a sheer stain or a mellowed-out gloss first,” says makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who pairs the vivid shade with a soft flush of peach on the cheek and a well-groomed brow.

With poolside parties and July Fourth cookouts offering up the perfect testing ground, Vogue has sifted through the season’s best colors by skin tone in time for the holiday weekend. Prepare to smolder (tastefully, of course).
