While we plebians may have a hard time getting our hands on a pair of Yeezy Boosts, members of the Kardashian clan have been spotted in the coveted trainers on innumerable occasions — even Kendall, who’s usually more of a lace-up stilettos and pointed-toe boots kinda gal.
So, color us unsurprised that unofficial Kardashian Kreative Director and dream brother-in-law Kanye West seems to have rubbed off on the Jenner design duo. Yesterday, Kylie posted a sneak peak of the upcoming Kendall + Kylie footwear line and we immediately saw the family resemblance.
One pair, in particular, touts the sock-like fit, mesh-body, subtle lacing and streamlined silhouette that no doubt helped boost the Yeezy to footwear fame. The other, more structured, style seems a nod to Nike’s mid-rise Huaraches. That said, these days sneaker giants like Nike and Adidas are constantly emulating one another, so we can’t really fault the girls for catering to market trends.
In addition to the Yeezy and Nike-inspired sneakers, the new collection will feature basket-like woven shoulder bags, lip-patterned purses, piggy backpacks and fuzzy keychains, along with a ton of new apparel. (Unfortunately, we couldn’t make out any particular styles from Kyle’s quick pan over the racks).
More details on Kendall and Kylie’s umpteenth collection to follow, but three things are for certain. One, these sneakers will definitely cost less than a pair of Yeezy Boosts. Two, they’re (slightly) less likely to sell out. Three, we’re sure Kanye will share his opinion on the copycat kicks on a future episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, now that he’s made his long-awaited return to the small screen. All causes for excitement, if you ask us.

Today, the modern business arena is almost entirely digital. Young entrepreneurs from all over the world are constantly starting profitable ventures with little more than an idea and an internet connection. However, even in this digital age, there’s still a lot of promise in physical retail outlets. If you’re planning to set up a physical store, one thing you can’t do without is foot traffic. Here’s a few good practices for getting people into your store.
The first and possibly most important tip I can offer is tidying up your store front. In any business, first impressions count. This could be a flyer, a chat at a trade fair, or most likely a website. For a lot of your target market, their first impression of your business is going to be your storefront. Many businesses have reported huge increases in foot traffic from some surprisingly small changes. Simply leaving the door open can be enough to tempt in a prospective customer. At the very least, you should make sure that all your window displays are well-organised and keeping with the season. A high-quality sign from a firm like Encore Image will also give your business an essential air of professionalism.
If you can find the right candidate, then partnering up with another local business can also be a great way to increase foot traffic. When you first start your business, it can be pretty easy to assume that you’re competing against every other storefront on the high street. This isn’t always the case, and you may even be able to turn some of your local neighbours into powerful allies. Take a walk around, and think about any related businesses that may be interested in some kind of partnership. For example, if you run a vinyl store, get talking to a local musical instrument shop and ask them if you can leave some leaflets on their counter. Provided that you’re willing to do the same, this could be the start of a hugely beneficial partnership.
Finally, consider introducing some loyalty schemes, especially in your earliest stages. Those customers who come back again and again are going to be the foundation for your retail business. Encouraging them to return after a purchase is a complete no-brainer. Of course, this is usually better suited to stores that sell small, disposable products. Still, I’m sure you can think of some way to fit a loyalty scheme into your own business model. Do a little maths to see what you can afford, and then start offering your customers a discount on their third, fifth, or tenth purchase. Once everything’s in place, design some attractive marketing materials and put them somewhere where it’s going to be seen. Even if someone isn’t all that interested in what you’re selling, discounts like this can be enough to draw them in and initiate a purchase. At the very least, it will spark some helpful word-of-mouth marketing.
Take these tips on board, and you’ll see a significant increase in foot traffic

The decision to practice family law can be one of the most challenging and fulfilling choices an attorney can make. Whether you’re in a solo, small, or mid-sized firm, you’ll be spending time helping clients navigate through one of the most difficult periods in their lives.
If you’re an exclusive family law practitioner or are considering adding family law to your current mix of practice area specialties, there are certain challenges and workflow complexities you’ll encounter on a regular basis. In addition to managing difficult situations and emotional clients, barrage of emails and phone calls, along with a robust court schedule, you also have to be adept at multi-tasking, prioritizing, and juggling multiple cases.

When a brand’s product description states that it “lets you easily create undone or mermaid, tousled waves with coveted shine,” we’re all ears. And since it emits negative ions, the barrel also gets rid of frizz, seals the cuticle and gives you super shiny locks all in one.
Undone Waves 1″ Straight Barrel, $85 at Sephora

Flowers play an important part in our lives. They bring a little bit of nature and joy into our homes and workplaces. Imagine a wedding or funeral without flowers. There’s also nothing more romantic than receiving a big bunch of flowers. In the workplace businesses are learning the value of flowers for improving moral and productivity.
Achieving more from staff in the workplace is a continuous challenge for businesses and thus it’s a subject that gets a lot of attention. Just look at the proliferation of white papers and articles on the topic found online. Most focus on the need to set goals, offer flexible hours, learning and development, provide feedback and recognition and so on. However dig a little deeper though and you’ll find there’s another way to get more productivity from your staff and it’s to do our sensory system.
Our visual and olfactory (smell) receptors respond to stimuli from flowers. Exposure to flowers in the workplace is said to improve our mood so we feel happier and more positive and that’s not all. We may also be more creative too when exposed to plants and flowers. Our innovative thinking can be enhanced by the stimuli from flowers allowing fresh ideas to develop and thus more problems solved.
Businesses are working out flowers are not only for adorning hotel entrances and business receptions. Allow your employees to brighten up their office desk with a plant or flower arrangement. The blog on Flowers are for everyone website has an interesting post on flowering plants that work best in the workplace. There’s even some suggestions for workspaces without natural light. If there’s ever a time we could do with a mood pick me up it’s during the season of Winter.
Winter is a time of less sun and a lot of us are at a lower ebb hence the saying ‘winter blues’. Brighten up your office desk with fresh flowers or for a longer term solution consider a flowering plant like a Cyclamen.
