Fashion First Aid Announces Their Latest Gift Just In Time For Holiday White Elephant and Gag Gifts: DoucheBomb
Fact: there are far more douchebags than women who actually use douche bags. This now mainstream classification of the sadly self-unaware fills the gap on the scale between jerk and MF. But it is their actions that makes them so fun to make fun of, and so in need of being outed as a douche bag.
Now with Fashion First Aid’s newest gag gift, DoucheBomb, people can hilariously out douchebags in their life. DoucheBomb features a patented, built-in “douche-o-meter” where the bag can be filled with liquid to the appropriate level of douchiness. If that is too complex or difficult to mail, some might prefer to use the “check the box” option and tick off “bad parking”, sign DoucheBomb, and leave it on some monster truck taking up two parking spaces. The truly eloquent might hand in a job resignation notice written on the back of DoucheBomb.
Each DoucheBomb contains tick the box options for these ten douchey actions:
mooching, womanizing, bragging, over-cologning, overcompensating, having no clue, bad parking, indoor sunglassing, namedropping, mirror-staring.
Fashion First Aid is encouraging creative uses and for people to post photos and tagging them with #DoucheBomb. “DoucheBomb is a fun gag gift that we want people to get creative with. I’m filling one with Axe and putting it in my over-cologned brother’s stocking.” says Fashion First Aid Founder and Chief Inventor Kim Castellano, aka Honest Kim.
DoucheBomb comes in value 3-packs for $ 10.95 because no one knows just one douchebag. They are a gag gift only and not for internal or medical use. DoucheBomb begins shipping 01 December just in time for holiday white elephant parties and is available on FashionFirstAid.com.
Fashion First Aid (Solutions That Stick Inc.) invents and manufactures both wacky and useful personal care products that you will never see someone else wearing, unless you take off his/her clothes. Recently relocated from Southern California to Idaho, we began in 1999 with one product, Garment Guard: disposable underarm shields (because the founder was a broke law student who was tired of her expensive white t-shirts getting ruined by underarm taco stains.) Now, with almost 50 products on the market, over 10 in the works, and a light and upbeat book entitled The Dirty Side of Fashion, the corporate mission is still to save the world from beauty and fashion disasters and help make clothes last longer.

There are many amazing attractions and events that these travelers can enjoy any time that they visit the best location in Los Cabos with Marina Fiesta Resort and Spa and for those who are visiting this March, there are two events in particular that they will not want to miss
First, the Los Cabos Green Fest is an extraordinary chance for Los Cabos visitors to have some good green fun when they are in this paradise. This is a music festival that is sure to offer attendees the lively atmosphere that many of them crave, but it is unique in that it is a green festival as well. The energy needed for the event will be generated by the attendees who can pedal on bicycles to create the energy. Additionally, all the unused materials from the festival will be donated after the event to ensure that nothing goes to waste. Along with the concerts, there will also be yoga, beach attractions, water sports, and a soccer tournament on the beach, offering many unique opportunities for attendees who want to have a great vacation that has a low impact on the planet. The event will take place on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of March.
For those who want to show off their competitive side or get caught up in some true sports fever, the best location in Los Cabos recommends the IRONMAN tournament that will be held on March 30th. Requiring competitors to complete a full triathlon, it will be a showcase of true sportsmanship and amazing human talent, all with the stunning backdrop of beautiful Los Cabos and the challenges of its rugged terrain.

Concessions International Opening Bar Symon in Washington Dulles International Airport; Bistro Is the Creation of James Beard Award and Iron Chef Winner Michael Symon
Leading U.S. concessionaire Concessions International (CI) announces the opening of Bar Symon in Washington Dulles International Airport. The bistro-style restaurant is located in Concourse D near gate D14. The airport location is a joint venture between CI and Cleveland-based United Concessions Group (UCG) an Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) owned by Hayat Rababy. This will be CI and UCGs first partnership.
Bar Symon is the brainchild of famed James Beard award winning Iron Chef Michael Symon and was created specifically for airports by combining Chef Symons experience operating award winning restaurants and his frustrations with quality food options while traveling. Vice President of UCG, Ben Rababy, met Chef Symon years ago and convinced him to open the first Bar Symon airport location in Pittsburgh International Airport, which remains in operation today.
Bar Symon is a great American bistro for airport guests looking for something different than your typical bar and grill, says Donata Russell Major, CIs Chief Executive Officer. Chef Symon has become a household name across the country and many diners will jump at the chance to try his unique menu items.
Bar Symons menu features new and traditional American cuisine with an emphasis on comfort food. Guests can choose from a selection of burgers and sandwiches, as well as Greek and Italian entrees inspired by Chef Symons heritage. Menu items include a Pulled Pork Breakfast Burrito (Scrambled eggs with pulled pork, cheddar cheese, cilantro leaves, scallions, red hot sauce & rosemary home fries) their flagship Lola Burger (Pat LeFreida proprietary blend patty with a fried egg, pickled onions, thick-cut bacon, cheddar cheese served on a challah bun), and Lola fries sprinkled with Kosher salt and fresh rosemary. Guest will be able to wash all this delicious food down with a house made Bar Symon Bloody Mary or pick from a large assortment of local and regional craft beers.
This will be one of the first restaurant openings for CI in 2015. The concessionaire has recently opened DC Craft Brews in Washington Dulles and Taylor Gourmet Deli in Reagan National and will open a Chef Geoffs location in Washington Dulles later this winter.

About the Authors
Tracey Webb was born and raised in East Sussex, England, and has lived the last 25 years in a country property situated in a rural area of Andalusia, Spain. One of her passions is teaching people to cook, another is photography. When the opportunity arose to write a recipe book, this offered Webb the possibility to incorporate both interests. Her aim is to enlighten people to the fact that eating and preparing healthy food, can be easy and fun.
Richard Mowbray has been head chef at the Centro Punto de Luz retreat in Southern Spain for six years, he first started cooking in self-defense when he was obliged to eat the kind of food (at the English boarding school) a rat would not even probably eat. Thank god he used to have his Italian grandmother who would show him how she made the food that was served at the family dinner table. He then discovered one can actually reverse and prevent disease through nutrition and positive mental attitude.

The Surging Male Grooming Sector Drives Growth in the Deodorants Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
Follow us on LinkedIn Defined as a cosmetic preparation developed to conceal and suppress unpleasant body odors, deodorants are today universally used. Deodorants are considered cosmetics, as they are non-therapeutic and do not alter the basic function of sweat glands. The growing emphasis on the importance of personal hygiene is benefiting sales of deodorants in the global market. The continuing massive urbanization in emerging markets and its influence on consumer purchasing patterns, of discretionary products such as beauty and luxury goods, will benefit sales of deodorants. Other key factors driving growth in the market include rising levels of employment, double-digit wage growth, increase in the number of dual income families, and the desire to purchase aspirational brands among the expanding base of affluent middle class population. While women represent a traditionally large consumer sector, the rapidly emerging male grooming market will offer opportunities for future growth. Increased spending by men on personal grooming products will help boost sales in the market. Premiumization of the personal care industry and globalization of cosmetic brands are expected to benefit sales of branded products.
The growing concerns over the health hazards caused by cosmetics present a real opportunity for organic and natural deodorants. Manufacturers are therefore focusing on the development of products featuring certified organic ingredients free of parabens, polyethylene glycols (PEGs), and hormone-disrupting chemical fragrances and petrochemical ingredients. Products featuring organic ingredients like coconut oil, and essential oils are therefore forecast to witness maximum growth. Future growth in the market will also be supported by packaging innovations, line extensions, and value added product features such as no-white marks and no-yellow stain sprays.
The demand in developed market will be driven by the development of long-lasting products that offer quick and effective protection against odor. Spray deodorants constitutes the largest market segment, followed by stick and solid deodorants. Roll-On deodorants are poised to register the fastest growth in the coming years, supported by convenience and ease-of-use benefits.
As stated by the new market research report on Deodorants, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 7.5% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is driven by rapidly growing population, rising standards of living, increased spending on personal hygiene products, and the adoption of an active, on-the-go lifestyle among the expanding base of educated and affluent middle class population. Underpenetrated markets of India and China will especially drive growth in the region.
Major players covered in the report include Avon Products Inc., Beiersdorf AG, CavinKare Pvt. Ltd., Church & Dwight Co. Inc., Colgate-Palmolive Company, Elder Health Care Ltd., Henkel AG & Co., KGaA, HYPERMARCAS S.A, Lion Corporation, Mandom Corporation, Marico Limited, McNROE Consumer Products Pvt.
