Doug Levitt use the buses to mingle with the suffering Americans

Traveling by bus can be exhaustive and utterly soul waning because it takes countless hours to reach your destination. Most of us will prefer taking a flight, and will only consider a bus if we are broke or miss the longevity involved. People take the bus for the fun of it, as a jaunt with friends, or because their towns are far from the airport. Of all the whys and wherefores that cause people to travel by bus, none of them compare to those of Doug Levitt.

Levitt is an American artist who used his bus explorations to expose the woes and insecurities of the overlooked American societies. Born in D.C, Doug Levitt is a son of a council member, Carol Schwartz. He went to D.C. public schools where he sang in choirs and also engaged in sports. During voter’s registration project, Doug developed an interest to know more about the forgotten American societies. He used the Greyhound buses to criss-cross around the country and currently, he has traveled more than 120,000 miles.

While most of us travel absentmindedly, the one-time CNN correspondent used his every moment on the Greyhound to get to know the people he traveled with. He used this opportunity to get an in-depth understanding of the people he met. According to him, a bus provides an environment where you can mingle with poverty, addiction, and mental illness. He adds that on a long bus journey people open up and share their wretched moments.It is a fact that our political system and media houses digress when the paucity topic is raised.

However, thanks to people like Levitt, real issues like poverty are getting the attention they deserve. Doug Levitt documented all his encounters in the ‘Greyhound Diaries’ and also in a website where he shares images, videos, and stories about the escapades. His seven years traveling experience provided an insight into every part of the American society and brought into the limelight the paucity and alienation surrounding the forgotten in America. Doug Levitt still travels by bus to meet more people and use his website and songs to talk about the struggling Americans.

Gentle and Soothing, WEN By Chaz Is Perfect For Every Hair Type/Texture On The Planet

Do you desire Hollywood hair?

Who doesn’t want this shiny, full and healthy mane that turns heads. Most of us believe that great-looking hair is only reserved for the famous and wealthy, but that is not true.

Many of us fall into the beauty rut of multiple bottles to shampoo, rinse, condition, rinse, repeat. Our hair still suffers from dullness, flatness and zero manageability, but we can’t find a way out.

Bustle.com beauty contributor Emily McClure was in the same boat. Fine, flat and not so shiny describe her tresses. Emily wanted that knockout hair she saw on those iconic WEN infomercials, so she took the plunge in the no lather shampoo world.

Emily tested WEN By Chaz’s cleansing conditioners for seven days and kept a hair diary with hair selfies on Facebook. She chose the FIG cleansing conditioner for its extra moisture and shine formula for her medium-length locks. She hopped into the shower and noticed a difference immediately in bigger hair with a softer smoother texture. She blew her hair dry and followed with her styling tools. Darn, she looked amazing.

Wen is different from regular shampoos. First, WEN By Chaz does not toss nasty chemicals into the mix, and the brand leaves out the lather. You don’t need lather, says WEN’s creator. Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/) is a famous Hollywood stylist who approached hair care from an holistic concept, using herbal extracts and other botanicals for gorgeous tresses. His one-bottle cleansing conditioners achieve great hair with one wash.

Emily recommends WEN highly, but the no lather shampoo system is not for lazy chicks. If you have the time to invest in using WEN daily and then blow-drying and using your styling tools, you can create A-list hair with movement and manageability.

WEN is delightfully different hair care. For more hair care tips, visit the Wen.com website.

Why You Should Try Fabletics

Fabletics is a fitness and workout clothes retailer based in the US. It operates on an online subscription model. It has also opened physical stores. Its headquarters is in El Segundo, California. Fabletics was started by Adam Goldenberg, Don Ressler, and Kate Hudson in 2013. The company began selling clothes to women solely. They opened a men’s line in conjunction with Oliver Hudson in 2015. Some of the locations where they have opened stores include Cincinnati, St. Louis, Las Vegas, Charlotte, and Colorado. The company has plans to open close to 100 stores in the next couple of years.

 

Customers take a survey to let the company know what outfits and workouts they like when they join as VIP Members. Outfits are then picked for a client at the start of each month depending on the preferences derived from the survey. VIP Members get the outfits for only $25 in the first month. The company has experienced exponential growth in the last couple of years. It has made a quarter of a billion dollars on sale since it was started. You can take the lifestyle quiz yourself to find out which Fabletics gear suits you the most.

 

One of the reasons why they have been successful is because of the reverse showrooming technique. The company uses online trends and habits to stock up their stores. Clients are able to get the items that are fashionable at that moment. Fabletics has used the stores to their advantage by ensuring that they complement the online experience. They also use the stores as an avenue for them to get to know their customers better by hosting events and interacting with them.

 

A certain client reviewed Fabletics a few years ago. She gave users an honest opinion on the products she received from the company. She said that the quality was good and the price was reasonable. The quality was higher than she expected. It was the same as that of other high-profile brands. She loved the fact that the leggings were thick. She did not have to worry about any see-through issues. She was also impressed with how the leggings held their shape and compression and did not fade quickly. The tops were very soft. They were made of high-quality fabric.

 

The client noted that Fabletics had a variety of styles that ranged from fun to bold. She said that Fabletics truly had something for everyone. One would not fail to find a style that they liked. She was happy with the value of the outfits. They were of excellent quality. She was impressed because the same outfits would cost relatively more at other stores even though the quality was the same. The fact that she could get a couple of items for less than $60 was one of the great things about Fabletics. She finished the blog post by recommending Fabletics because of the many perks that they offer. The deal is superb since customers can choose to skip a month if they wish.

Black Friday week is still going strong! Shop the sale in stores and online. (Link in bio)
