The Sundance Institute (yep, the same folks that host the Sundance Film Festival in Utah), are hosting a FREE screening of one of their films in New York City! The film will be shown in the Dolby Screening Room followed by a Q&A session with the film's writer-director Sally El Hosaini and actor James Floyd.
Film Description: My Brother The Devil stars James Floyd as Rashid, a young man from a traditional Arab family who runs with a gang that rules the streets of Hackney, one of London's most ethnically-mixed and historically volatile neighborhoods. Rashid's younger brother, Mo, (Fadi Elsayed) idolizes his handsome, charismatic older brother and dreams of following in his footsteps, but Rashid envisions a different life for Mo and insists that he stay away from gang life and stick to his studies. Headed on a collision course of conflicting desires, each young man is forced to face himself and confront the brother he thought he knew.
This is an advanced screening. The film opens in select theaters (including Landmark Sunshine Theater in NYC) starting March 22nd.
H&M has just released a really awesome line called the "Conscious Collection". It consists of sustainable fashion made from 100% recycled materials. Most of the collection features awesome graphic prints of animals and flowers from the tropical rainforest.
What could be better? For every shopping bag you drop off that contains any old, unwanted, or worn/torn clothes....H&M will give you a coupon for 15% OFF any 1 item in the Conscious Collection! Get all the details on the recycling program HERE.
I am a firm believer that we should make a stronger effort to protect our environment and be less wasteful. However, when you're on a tight budget sometimes it can be especially hard to purchase more environmentally friendly products. So, I am extremely impressed by H&M's new efforts through its sustainable fashion collection and its clothing recycling campaign. The items in the collection start as low as $9.95 for a tee shirt, $17.95 for a blouse!
This weekend I visited the JCP at Quakerbridge Mall near Princeton, NJ. What I really love about the total overhaul of the company by their new CEO is the new store layout.
They have individual "boutiques" featuring designer collections and collaborations at very affordable prices. Before these changes I'd never been a JCP shopper, but I have to say they will definitely bring in a new, fashionable clientele! Check out my 5 fave "boutiques" I spotted in the store this weekend:
