Doe Deere’s Lime Crime Vision

All it takes is one look at Doe Deere and it is easy to see why she and her followers consider her the queen of the unicorns. Although it doesn’t stay the same color for long, her striking hair and bold eyes command attention. No matter what she’s wearing, her style reflects a deep and bold confidence that comes from within. Doe Deere’s makeup company, Lime Crime, reflects this confidence and boldness in all of their products, from bold red lips to glittering highlighter that can practically be seen from space. With her loyal fanbase, Doe Deere’s makeup brand has grown exponentially since its inception in 2008 and only continues to grow with more quality products and inclusion.


Before launching Lime Crime, Doe Deere was already involved in various creative outlets, from making her own music to designing her own clothing. Born in Russia, she came to New York City to study fashion design, which began her inspiration for creating her own products and honing her style. Back in 2008, not many makeup companies were doing business online, let alone establishing a brand that way. However, Doe Deere knew that the future of makeup and unicorns was moving online. Starting with a small collection of products like eyeshadow and blush, Lime Crime is now a vast makeup empire with various collections and shades for every personality.


One of the main reasons that Doe Deere wanted to start her own company was due to the lack of colorful options in the current makeup market. Lime Crime’s variety of colorful shades have never been duplicated, from the deep purples of the matte velvetines to the shimmering glows of the highlight palettes. Doe Deere’s vision is that all of her customers find the uniqueness in her makeup that they can find within themselves.

Robert Ivy recently made history by becoming the first architect to receive the Neil Polk Lifetime Achievement Award. Ivy, the CEO and Executive Vice President of the American Institute of Architects, is a respected architect, scholar and entrepreneur. A native Mississippian, Ivy received the award for his artistic approach to design that seamlessly unites form and function. The award was presented on April 11, 2016. Previous recipients of the honor include Shelby Foote, Eudora Welty, Walter Anderson, Leontyne Price and Morgan Freeman.

Carl Elefante, President of the American Institute of Architects, commented, “Robert Ivy has proven himself worthy of the honor. He has served as the chief executive officer of the AIA since 2011. He is a practicing architect, author and editor. This award crowns his professional and personal achievements as a native of Mississippi. The AIA is delighted to give him this honor.”

The Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters, or MIAL, voted to honor Ivy. MIAL president, Nancy LaForge, explained the reason for the one-of-a-kind honor, “There is no one else from Mississippi that has contributed to making architecture more accessible to the public like Robert Ivy. He has shown exceptional devotion as an author, commentator and writer of architecture globally. Now, he is taking his rightful place on the list of honorees of the Noel Polk Award.”

Highlights of Ivy’s Career

Born in Mississippi, Ivy earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Sewanee. He subsequently enrolled at Tulane University where he earned a Master’s in Architecture. Ivy then joined McGraw-Hill Construction as a company vice president. During this period of his life, he worked for the Architectural Record where he was responsible for 33 publications, many of which won signature awards during his tenure. Currently, Ivy works for the American Institute of Architects where he encourages architects to address key issues such as sustainability, climate change and incorporating digital technology into designs.

Ivy has won many awards including a 1998 McGraw-Hill award for his management skills. In 2009, he won the prestigious Crain award. Other important awards followed including the “Master Architect” award and MIAL Neil Polk Lifetime Achievement Award.

The AIA Magnifies Its Influence Under Ivy’s Leadership

Since Robert Ivy became the CEO of the AIA, the organization has transformed to keep up with technology changes that affect architecture in the 21st century. The organization is committed to heightening awareness of architecture’s influence on everyday life. Ivy has pursued building better infrastructure based on digital technology and addressing critical issues such as sustainability, responsible use of resources, climate change and design’s impact on health.

The AIA was founded in 1857 by a small group of men with conventional ideas, but Ivy has expanded the organization’s role to embrace digital technology and urban collaboration among different fields of endeavor. The AIA now has more than 90,000 members, and Ivy is fully committed to encouraging architects to expand their efforts to solve many public problems that a building’s design can alleviate.

The AIA has grown steadily under Ivy’s leadership, and it now has its highest membership of its 160-year history. There are now seven global chapters of the AIA. American architects develop properties all over the world including new markets in China and Canada. The AIA provides architects with support, community collaboration and resources to advance their careers and businesses. The organization also engages government and civic leaders to solve common issues.

Robert Ivy Earns High Marks for Scholarship and Collaborative Architecture

Ivy committed heavily to using architectural designs for better urban planning during the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting. He believes that architecture can be used to promote other important urban goals such as fostering better health.

The AIA subsequently committed to a decade of collaborative design to improve public health. The initiative involves conducting university research, encouraging app and technology development to design smarter buildings and collaborating with community organizations.

Known for memorable speeches and thought leadership that stimulate intellectual debate, Ivy is also celebrated as the author of “Fay Jones: Architect.” Fay Jones was a respected artist, architect and admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright. Ivy published the biography in 2001. During a long career and apprenticeship with Wright, Jones designed more than 218 projects including educational and commercial buildings, pavilions, chapels, metal structures and residential constructions. Ivy’s biography of Jones was praised by the Art Library of North America for “the highest standards of scholarship, design, and production."

Ivy has also received the prestigious honor of being named a Master Architect by Alpha Rho Chi, the national fraternity of architects. Previous honorees include I.M. Pei, R. Buckminster Fuller and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Ivy is one of seven architects to be so honored and the first of the 21st century.

- Juror on the panel that chose Frank Gehry to design the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial
- 26 Jesse H. Neal Awards
- 2008 MPA Digital Award for Website of the Year
- 7 Ozzies: Folio Design Awards

Robert Ivy believes strongly that architecture can make a big difference in quality-of-life issues, and it’s this kind of thought leadership that has resulted in Ivy receiving signature honors such as the MIAL Lifetime Achievement Award. Ivy commented recently in an interview, “Design has played an integral role in public health throughout the course of the history of the U.S., dating back to the draining of swamps in Washington, D.C., to the Olmsted design of Central Park in New York. The idea with Central Park was to eradicate substandard housing and normalize a part of the city that was challenged. Originally, it was not primarily a recreational space -- it was conceived in the context of improving public health.”

There are an incredible number of ways that architects can promote better living, and these include designing buildings capable of providing disaster relief, promoting exercise, reducing energy use, maximizing natural light and fresh air and delivering recreational options. Ivy and the AIA will continue to follow a mandate to expand the role of architects in the foreseeable future.

Lime Crime’s Big Beauty Standards

The cosmetics industry is in a good place right about now. For the longest of time, it seems as if this industry had become stagnant, especially prior to 2008. When it comes owning a business, complacency is not the answer because your business can become a relic if it's not introducing new products. On the other hand, Lime Crime cosmetics has played a key role in the success of the cosmetics industry. Thanks to the company's one-of-a-kind products, this field of work has experienced a revival in a sense. Lime Crime was founded by Doe Deere. This up-and-coming fashion designer has built this brand from the ground-up.


Lime Crime has a wide selection of products that includes glitter, lipstick, foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, lip gloss, lip topper, hair dye and many more. The company uses some of the most dynamic-color schemes out of any cosmetics brand. This includes:


  • Utopia (intense pink)


  • Zenon (vivid gold)


  • Wicked (blood red)


  • Red Velvet


  • Black Velvet


  • Peacock (intense green)


  • Cement (gray)


  • Faded (dull purple)


  • Pink Velvet


  • And many others



The color purple has become the color of choice for 2018. Trends tend to come and go with seasons and purple is definitely in right about now. With Lime Crime's new Venus 3 eyeshadow palette, it will offer multiple shades of purple, including lilac and lavender. This new eyeshadow product has generated plenty of attention weeks before its official release, and it will sell for just over $30.


"Always look for gaps in the market and pay attention to innovation," said Deere. Being an entrepreneur has always been a passion of Deere. The Russian-born beauty actually sold temporary tattoos to her classmates back in the day. She has parlayed this passion into a successful business. Lime Crime just so happened to start-out as a clothing brand. The makeup products were introduced once Deere noticed the lack of variety that was on the market. At first, the makeup products was complimentary, but they would soon began to outshine the actual clothing.


As of today, Doe Deere has just launched a new store in London, England. Lime Crime is certainly growing by leaps and bounds thanks to these brilliantly displayed products. Lime Crime's big beauty standards are changing the game for the better and that's a documented fact. Learn more:

Bradesco Is Well Capitalized And Profitable Going Into 2018 According To CEO Luíz Carlos Trabuco Cappi

The banks in Brazil know how to stay ahead of economic and political issues that continue to plague the country. Over the last three years, the big banks sustained their profitability by using the difference between their borrowing rates and the rates they charge to lend money. Even though the Selic interest rate is in the single-digits, banks charge three or four times that rate to consumers. In some cases, the interest rate on home and automobile loans can be as high 20 percent or more. The big banks like Bradesco dominate the market, so they are able to charge high-interest rates even when the Central bank is lowering the Selic rate. And the banking business in Brazil is a highly concentrated industry so charging high-interest rates is acceptable, but consumers don’t always agree with that profit-generating tactic. The big banks also take advantage of government incentives, and insurance policies that protect them from recessionary issues, according to Bradesco’s CEO Luíz Carlos Trabuco Cappi.

There are three big state-run banks in Brazil, and three big private banks; Itaú Unibanco, Bradesco, and Santander Brasil. Those banks are the main go-to banks for consumers who want to bank online. Bradesco is the second largest private bank in terms of profit. Itaú Unibanco makes more than R$3 billion more a year than Bradesco, but Bradesco has a better reputation, according to the consumers who use the bank’s mobile app to do their banking. CEO and president Luíz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is a bank executive who stays on top of the consumer market. The bank’s Personas Project helps the bank understanding the buying and saving habits of their clients, and that gives the bank an advantage when it comes to offering new tech products that make banking easier.


Brazil’s economy contracted by 3.6 percent in 2016. The economy is recovering in 2017, but there are political issues that inhibit real growth, according to Trabuco Cappi. President Michel Temer is under attack even though he is putting new programs in place to ease some of the consumer suffering. Trabuco Cappi knows the political situation will not get much better, so he tries to incorporate new programs that will help his clients deal with the political uncertainty. Most people know Bradesco has the right attitude when it comes to helping people. Bradesco environmental and educational programs are helping people understand the importance of being proactive in a responsible way. Trabuco Cappi and his executive group continue to instill that proactive mentality in the bank’s 100,000 employees.

Luíz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is a no-frills banker. He stays away from political conflicts and fake news stories. Trabuco Cappi is a sixty-six-year-old bank executive who knows the value of offering products and services that enhance the lives of his clients. Those programs give Bradesco employees a sense of accomplishment when clients use them. Bradesco has a program in place that gives clients the opportunity to buy products that work for them. Not all banks go the extra mile when it comes to focusing on what their clients want and need.

Thanks to new online banking programs and Bradesco’s bottom performance in 2017, Wall Street is pushing Bradesco as one of the stocks to buy now and in 2018. Bradesco client-centric focus is on digital technology and investing, according to Trabuco Cappi. The bank is making progress thanks to 60 different websites and 26 million Bradesco account holders. More than 95 percent of the current bank transactions happen on digital channels. Trabuco Cappi doesn’t like to take credit for all the success the bank is enjoying, but bank employees know he and his team are making a huge impact on the online banking industry in Brazil.

George Soros may be most abnegated philanthropist in history

George Soros has always been a curiosity among his plutocratic peers. Never devoutly interested in money, Soros always wanted to become a philosopher rather than a businessman.

In fact, he didn't even know that he wanted to go into a career on Wall Street until much later in life, when he was already in his late twenties.

One interesting consequence of this is that, it seems, Soros has long held the philosophy that philanthropic pursuits are the end to which all investors should strive in created means to fulfill. Over the course of his career, Soros has given away more money than perhaps any other investor in modern history. But what's more, he has given away this money throughout the entirety of his career; this includes significant sums very early in his investment career, when those returns would have had the opportunity to compound over many years, generating huge returns.

Many investors such as Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn and even the Koch brothers only started giving away vast sums of their fortunes much later in life. What this meant for these investors is that all of the money that they generated early in their careers was always able to compound. Many people do not fully appreciate the power that money left to compound returns has in building wealth. But it's safe to say that, for example, in the case of Warren Buffett, if Mr. Buffett would have been willing to give away the same amount of money that George Soros did at the same point in his career, he would have just a small fraction of his current wealth. Know more about George Soros on Investopedia.

After starting his first hedge fund, Soros Fund Management, in 1972, Soros went on to have an incredibly successful decade. But during this time, he almost immediately began giving away serious portions of his wealth to causes in which he believed If we assume that George Soros gave away the equivalent of just $1 billion in 1980, a very conservative assumption, given the fact that he has donated over $15 billion to date, his total net worth, compounding at a rate of 25 percent per year would be in excess of $3.5 trillion today. This would easily make him the richest man who has ever lived.

Because of Soros’ incredible rates of return, even the small amount of money that he gave away early in his career would be worth tremendous sums today.  Thus, it's safe to assume that absent Soros’ extreme generosity he would today be the richest man alive. Learn more on about George Soros.
