INTRODUCING ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY
Previous Pantone Color of the Year: 2007-2016
Pantone, owned by Washington, D.C.-based Danaher Corp., has a system that helps manufacturers define color precisely. Every year, the company polls décor and fashion designers, as well as manufacturers and retailers, on what colors they intend to use, led by Ms. Eiseman, to pick the color of the coming year. Pantone will tip off some marketing partners so that they can create products, such as Sephora cosmetics and Keurig coffee makers, that use the colors.
Right up there with the awful mattress shopping experience is the ridiculously awful sheets and towels shopping experience. Going to the bedding department at chain stores like BED,BATH & BEYOND or the local Macy’s is sure to be a confusing, baffling and usually a boring exercise that concludes in an enormous heavy bulky plastic bag that you have to lug to your car and cart into your house. And the price is always about three times what you set out to spend as the salesperson keeps moving you up the price chain (for the better stuff so

Movie Synopsis - Pure action Mayhem
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organization known as Spectre.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr. White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of Spectre. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of Spectre, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
AN ASTON MARTIN DB10 from SPECTRE one of only ten in the world.

Pompeya is a group from Moscow, but their latest album Real was mostly recorded in the US. In 2013, Pompeya signed with the No Shame label opening up new opportunities. The band was able to work with different producers and engineers changing up their music from Tropical, their last album. Stylistically, the album is way more New Wave and Pop with hints of Disco, Funk and other genres. Songs like “Pasadena” and “Anyway” are more nostalgic in sound with reminders of Duran Duran, and The Cure. “Pasadena” a favorite track on the album and is a perfect Summer soundtrack.
