Rule The Mom-Dad World With A Cartier

The greatest gift you can give someone is time. When pearls of wisdom like this come your way, it’s best to heed the advice well. Call it metaphorical, but I like to think the guys who get it know exactly what they’re talking about –wristwatches, of course!

Stay On Top Of Shifting Food And Beauty Trends

It’s an imperative of any manufacturer or retailer to track the evolving buying habits of their consumers.

In the food and beauty industries, the most recent changes to consumer-led movements have been a shifting appreciation for products that are considered good or healthful. At a time when kale, gluten-free baked goods, and hand-crafted soaps are happily bought from local farmer’s markets, what’s considered ‘good’ are products with simple, recognizable ingredients that one would more likely find…
