HAUGHTY COSMETICS LAUNCHES IN DC: Launch Event will Benefit Becky’s Fund

WASHINGTON DC----- Haughty Cosmetics, a new luxury makeup line founded by Michelle Coyle, will launch in DC with an event benefiting Becky’s Fund, a non profit organization focused on domestic violence awareness and education, on March 10. Haughty’s mission is to empower women to feel beautiful inside and out while raising money and awareness for domestic violence prevention.

Coyle, 29, founded Haughty after realizing that she could make a difference for countless women by combining her love of cosmetics with her passion to end relationship violence. The resulting product line pledges 50 percent of its profits to domestic violence prevention education. “I am so proud to be launching a company founded on one of my core beliefs: that true beauty comes from empowering others”, Coyle said.

Coyle is proud to partner with Becky’s Fund because they share a common life goal: preventing as many young women as possible from entering into violent and unhealthy relationships.

Bridging the Generation Gap in Egypt and the American Workplace

The historical transfer of power in Egypt has seen the departure of an entrenched 82-year-old dictator and a movement toward a democratically elected government where young Egyptians will have a major voice in politics and policies of the future.  A major key to a successful transition that will allow Egypt to move forward as a stable, innovative nation lies in respect and understanding between generations.

The same is true with American businesses.

Innovation is the intersection of the past and present that leads to the future.  That’s why it is so important that business leaders publicly acknowledge the contribution of each generation, applaud the unique strengths brought to the table by workers of different ages, and encourage everyone to share their viewpoints as a way to make a strong team even stronger.

A Bethesda Bakery Guaranteed to Spark Your Fancy

You may have heard of Fancy Cakes by Leslie on the Food Network’s Ace of Cakes or on TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off.  Maybe you’ve read about how Fancy Cakes by Leslie prepared a Birthday Cake for Marc Anthony and J.Lo for Marc’s 41st Birthday in People Magazine or The Washington Post. Regardless of where or what you’ve heard about them, it all means nothing until you try it for yourself.  The proof is in the pudding—oops, I mean batter.

“I’ve been making cakes for 15 years,” says Leslie Poyourow, owner and decorator. “I started as a hobbyist. I always loved to bake, but was uncertain about how to do the decorating piece. I took a couple of classes and then basically the rest is history because I became very passionate about it and I still love it.”
