The Body Shop is taking an active role in trying to change US laws that allow children to be arrested and prosecuted when they are victims of sex trafficking. Instead of arresting these young children they should be offered support and protection as they are in New York and Washington states.
A “safe harbor” law can:
Protect and prevent any person under the age of 18 from being charged, prosecuted or incarcerated for prostitution.
Refer exploited children to special services and shelters that will support their recovery.
Require the training of law enforcement, judges and first responders
The Body Shop has launched a campaign to raise awareness of to stop sex trafficking of both children and young adults and to garner support for the fight against the trafficking of nearly 1.2 million children and young people each year.
Working alongside their global campaign partner ECPAT, they have launched a petition calling upon governments to give children greater protection against trafficking. The Body Shop are going to present this petition to the US Government, and then combined with other nations’ signatures this will create a global petition to present to the United Nations.
The Body Shop has created a special page on their site where you can sign the digital petition as well as a widget that you can share on your blog to encourage as many people as possible to join the fight!
Please visit petition.thebodyshop-usa.com to sigh the e-petition and show your support.

If you asked me what my ideal perfume scent would be, I’d probably answer and say something like gummi bears!
Yeah, I’m hardcore when it comes to sweet scents. I really love fruity, sweet candy-like blends but…….I do tend to migrate to unusual ones as well like spicy florals or interesting fruity florals. I’m a Jill of all Trades when it comes to fragrance however I definitely feel most comfortable with something sweet.
A reader wrote to me recently and said, “Muse, I know you’re keen on sweet stuff but have you tried Lush Vanillary?”
Why, yes, I have.
Vanilla is outside my norm to be honest and it’s not something I seek out in my fragrances however with Lush’s name stamped all over it, it’s instantly something I purchased as soon as it released last year.
There’s one thing you should always remember about Lush, THEY KNOW how to create good fragrance.
Contrary to what I might believe, Digipop is not the latest boy band from Korea it’s the latest MAC Collection. Well, doh!
No seriously, doesn’t it sound like some sort of band? Ok, maybe that’s just me.
MAC Digi-Pops Collection made its debut earlier this Summer exclusively at Nordstrom. During pre-booking I was super excited to play with Digi-Pops myself so I headed over to Nordies and promptly became utterly disgusted at the display. Nordstrom, baby, mama loves you but please clean up your act. I was appalled at the condition of the collection. One of the things I was really interested in exploring were the new Digi-Pops Dazzle Lipsticks and they were just so terribly gross that I couldn’t even bear to look at them never mind swatch them. The lipsticks were squashed and smushed down to the core, just really a hot mess.
Needless to say I didn’t bother pre-booking any of it because I couldn’t get a feel for the product in that condition.
Lucky enough MAC has released the Dazzle Lipsticks and they are in, thank god, way better condition than the Nordie’s ones were.
Although poisonous, Snow White was pretty much attracted to sinking her teeth into that crunchy, red apple that her wicked stepmother presented to her. Who could blame her, girlfriend was hungry after walking around that forest all day!
Ahh apples. There’s just something terribly enchanting about a bright, shiny, apple. Speaking of enchanting apples…..Nina Ricci always charms my money right out of my pocket with her whimsical little apple shaped fragrances.
Anyone sniff Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina the newest fragrance in the line?
