Wow. A new one was given to the Prime Minister of the UK by journalist, Daniel Hannan on how the PM continues to spend and borrow the country further into debt. This is classic constructive criticism. Classic.

Each time I talk to my cousin, Andre, I am just amazed with how creative he is and what he’s been able to accomplish in his life. Andre comes from San Fancisco and as a young man decided to chase his dreams of doing something grand for fashion. 

Today, he has worked for major design houses and traveled around the world- working at shows for Prada, Versace, Marc Jacobs, and many more. I am so proud of him- I just had to share with the world. 

Check out his website. Just launched so expect a lot more in coming months.
