Seriously! Guy Rompers Are Now A Thing!

(PCM) It is summer music festival season and of course one festival season fashion staple is the romper, which, for the most part, has been a garment specifically geared towards women … that is until now!

Our worst fashion nightmare has come true and a company called Aced Design has launched a Kickstarter campaign to launch the “RompHim“, which is essentially a romper for men. It is pretty freaking ridiculous!

But, of course, bro-culture has latched on and the “RompHim” has already surpassed their initial start-up goal of $10,000 and the company has already raised over $65,000 and we are still over here asking ourselves why on earth???

This is a true hipster nightmare! One major difference between a women’s romper and the new RompHim comes with a zip down fly for easier access when needing to use the bathroom. We females call this unfair, as we need to completely come out of these silly garment when needing to use the restroom! Such a bummer!

Although we have to admit we can’t wait to see some guys actually try and pull off this look! Laughs for days!

People Are Angered Over Company’s Fat-Shaming Meal Planners

(PCM) Everyone is in an uproar over the release of meal planners and food journals from a UK -based stationary company called Fox & Moon which feature messages that could easily be construed as fat-shaming and bullying. The company is calling these messages printed on the planners and journals “sassy”, but everyone else begs to differ.

Women haven enough issues with body image these days, so having meal planners and food journals that feature phrases such as “I want to skinny dip, not chunky dunk”, “Stop rewarding yourself with food, you are not a dog!” and “Stick to the plan, piggy!”, these are far from positive affirmations and can truly do more harm than good.

Many fear that these types of message being printed on meal planners and food journals, which are supposed to assist in a good way with healthy eating and weigh-loss, defeat the entire purpose. One journal was actually printed with the phrase “stop bloody eating” and this kind of advice could lead many straight into an eating disorder.

By printing these offensive affirmations on the planners and journals the company is actually acting as a bully and shaming women into feeling like they need to lose weight in order to feel desirable and succeed in life. This could not be further from the truth. There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight and eat healthy, but there is a better way to go about it than this!

Something tell us that the Fox & Moon company will be quickly yanking these meal planners and food journals from their inventory very soon, but we say too late! The damage is already done and they should be ashamed of themselves!

Skittles Releases An Incredibly Creepy Commercial In Time For Mother’s Day

(PCM) Mother’s Day is right around the corner and Skittles has released what is probably one of the creepiest commercials we have ever seen just in time to celebrate mom’s special day. Seriously, it is downright disturbing, but then again, Skittles has been known to take some weird risks when it comes to their advertising campaigns.

This commercial actually makes us feel less likely to purchase any Skittles as a Mother’s Day treat, even if it was our mother’s favorite candy! It takes the concept of a mother/son bond to an entirely new level and in a really odd way.

Now it’s time to go wash this Skittles commercial from our brains … forever! See it below, but we warned, once you see it, it can never been unseen … proceed with caution!

Dove Launches Body Type Shaped Bottles. The Internet Is Not Pleased!

(PCM) The Dove brand has been known and loved for their heart-warming advertisements and commercials that promote diversity and body positivity, however people are not so keen on the company taking those ideal and creating new packaging that is supposed to look like various body types.

We understand the company wanting to celebrate diversity, especially when it comes to body image, but bottle shape diversity may be taking things just a step too far. For example, Dove’s new packaging features the slogan that “Beauty Comes In All Shapes And Sizes” and the bottles come in a variety of shapes such as tall and thin and short and stout. So, does this mean if I’m on the chunky side then I shouldn’t by the tall and thin bottle or vice versa? It is ridiculous!

According to Dove:

From curvaceous to slender, tall to petite, and whatever your skin colour, shoe size or hair type, beauty comes in a million different shapes and sizes. Our six exclusive bottle designs represent this diversity: just like women, we wanted to show that our iconic bottle can come in all shapes and sizes, too.

Overall it is just a weird idea and probably one that will not be around too long now that folks on the internet have begun relentlessly trolling the company. Perhaps we should just toss this one to the bad idea pile now!

Macy’s Is Changing The Department Store Shopping Model As We Know It

(PCM) It is apparent the people definitely do not shop the same way that they did in the past. For the past several years, brick and mortar retailers have had to battle the upsurge in online shopping on their own websites, as well as, other online retailers who are offering the same or similar products at deep discount prices.

Many department stores, as in the particular case Macy’s, are being forced to come up with new and creative ways to adapt to changing shopping trends. Macy’s, who were always number one in customer service, claims that research has shown them that people do not want to be bothered by a salesperson any more and would much rather do their shopping at their own pace, which is usually must faster nowadays.

The current trend is that people seem to want to be in and out of stores as quickly as possible. They grab what they are looking for and then they are on their way. In an attempt to keep up with the current trend Macy’s will now be changing the department store shopping model as we know it by installing new self-service systems in both their shoe and cosmetics departments.

What this means for customers is that they would no longer have to find a salesperson to go grab them the shoes they need in a certain size and at the cosmetics counters they can grab whatever make-up or perfume they came for without a salesperson making recommendations.

We can see how this would work out better for the shoe department because sometimes it can be a very long wait to get help if it is a busy time, however we will definitely miss the salespeople at the cosmetics counter because often times they provided very useful information about how certain products worked and what was new and exciting for each cosmetics line.

Another way that Macy’s along with other department store retailers such as Nordstrom and Saks 5th Ave are battling declining brick and mortar sales is to open deep discount retail locations. Macy’s launched “Backstage” which offers Macy’s brands marked 20 to 75% off their regular retail prices, while Nordstorm has “Nordstorm Rack” and Saks 5th Ave has “Saks Off 5th”.

These discount stores appear to be doing much better than their parent stores, so if any brick and mortar stores want to be saved this appears to be the way to go! What do you think? Do you prefer the old-fashioned department store shopping where a salesperson was available at all times to help with shopping or do you prefer to grab and go without any interference?

Bagel Chain Introduces Caffeinated Coffee Bagels

(PCM) Colorado-based bagel chain Einstein Bros have recently revealed their newest creation with the Espresso Buzz Bagel and it promises a morning wake-up call. The new bagel is chock full of caffeine, 32 mg to be exact, which is equal to about a third of the amount that is in a standard cup of coffee. While the Espresso Buzz bagel may not give you the same pick-up as your full cup of coffee, it certainly works as a grab and go option for something a little different.

In addition to the caffeine the Espresso Buzz Bagel features 13 grams of protein and the chain claims that the caffeine that makes up the bagel is sourced from both espresso and coffee-cherry flour. As coffee lovers, we are just curious about the taste. It looks like it would be pretty good, but sometimes looks can be a bit deceiving. The new bagel is part of Einstein Bros. new line of Boosted Bagels, which feature unique and innovative recipes.

The Espresso Buzz bagel is one of three bagel options that are currently available right now. The others include the sweet, oat-topped Cherry Chia Bagel and the Savory Parm Bagel and the company plans to introduce even more additional options in the future. While the company claims that the Boosted Bagels will only be available for a limited time, if they sell well enough the company doe say they will consider making them a permanent menu option.
