TANZANIA KICKS OFF TRAINING FOR TAILORS AS REGIONAL BAN ON SECOND HAND  CLOTHES LOOM

TANZANIA KICKS OFF TRAINING FOR TAILORS AS REGIONAL BAN ON SECOND HAND CLOTHES LOOM

Tanzania has started a programme to train tailors in anticipation of plans to implement a regional ban on the importation of second-hand clothes and footwear by 2019.

According to the East African, Jenista Mhagama, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office said the training programmes will equip young Tanzanians with tailoring skills. The skilled youths will be employed in clothes and footwear manufacturing factories, which are going to be opened, in line with the government’s industrialisation plan, Mhagama said.

Early this year the East African Community (EAC) approved a proposed ban to boost the manufacturing industry, and help grow the region’s economy.

The import ban is expected to boost Tanzania’s manufacturing industry, create employment, and help grow the economy. With the training, Tanzania becomes one of the first countries in the region to start preparing for the implementation of the ban.

While the ban has its merits, there are concerns that a blanket ban will hurt the poor. Amidst the growing unemployment and poverty, the importation of second hand clothes provides a lifeline to the unemployed (informal traders), while the cheap clothes, often of high quality are irresistible for customers.

However, the downside of allowing these imports is undoubtedly the slow death of the textile/manufacturing industry and the EAC plans to intervene and revive the dormant industry before it’s too late.

Besides the economic and policy considerations, critics of second-hand clothes and goods often raise the health element and argue the goods are a health hazard, particularly second-hand underwear seen by some as unhygienic.

12 EMBARRASSING BEAUTY HABBITS LADIES NEVER ADMITS TO

12 EMBARRASSING BEAUTY HABBITS LADIES NEVER ADMITS TO

There’s absolutely no shame in our beauty game
Sometimes our commitment leads us to bend the rules a bit and do some not-so-cute things in the name of pretty. But, since we’re all friends here, we’re dishing on 12 of the embarrassing beauty habits we’re totally guilty of.
1. Shaving Strange Places
News flash: We are not hairless beings. And, we’re not just talking about a little fuzz on the legs and arms. Hair can also be found in some less-than-attractive places likour cheeks, upper-lip region, stomach, knuckles and even toes.

So, what’s a girl to do? Shave it. There we said it.
 
2. Plucking Gray Hair

As much as we try to hide it, the aging process is a real thing. Nothing presents this hard dose of reality quite like a gray hair. You know, the ones that sprout out of nowhere and take center stage? Yeah, those. So, naturally our knee-jerk reaction is to whip out the tweezers and make that hair history. Confession: Some of us have found ourselves tweezer-less, and took a Sharpie to our hair to hide the evidence.
 
3. Using Hemorrhoid Cream to Treat Under-Eye Bags

Sorry, but we’re not trying to carry our makeup and daily essentials in the bags under our eyes. And, sometimes, all the ice cubes, cold cucumbers and concealer in the world can’t help our under-eye baggage. So, we’ve been known to reach for the hemorrhoid cream to reduce the puff from time to time.

4. Sporting Streaky Self-Tanner

For one, those of us who dabble (aka drench) ourselves in self-tanner are a little hush-hush about the whole ordeal. When questioned, we respond with “I’m just naturally olive.” or “I spent the weekend in Malibu.” Welp, from time to time that tan speaks for itself—and when we catch it, it’s too late, we’re already out in public.
 
5. Bleaching Our Mustaches

Why should the hair on our head get all the fun? While threading and waxing are the more commonly embraced forms of hair removal, those with a less prominent ’stache go the bleaching route. What’s the biggie?
 
6. Reviving Shattered Compacts, Because Money

Whether it’s because we have an unbreakable bond with our powder foundation or because we are on a tight mandatory beauty budget, we have been known to pull a MacGyver on a broken compact. Some call it crazy, we call it resourceful.

7. Painting Over Chipped Polish

With no time to go back to the nail salon, and not enough energy to start from scratch, we may or may not resort to painting over chipped nails for a “fresh” mani when in a pinch. C’mon. You know you’ve done it.
 
8. Cutting Our Own Bangs …

Most of us are not lucky enough to have a full glam squad at our beck and call (bummer). So, occasionally, we take matters into our own hands—literally. When our bangs start to get too long for comfort, we risk catastrophe (and a scolding from our stylists) and give ’em a little snip. What’s the worst that could happen?

9. & Split Ends
All that coloring, bleaching, and heat-styling can take a toll on our locks via a hot, splitting mess. And, while we’d love to say we always treat our stands to this 5-step program for healthy hair, sometimes we succumb to the allure of instant gratification and snip those little suckers. Shhh … don’t tell our stylists about this one either!

10. Waiting Days Between Hair Washing
OK, maybe even a week. But, hair-washing can be a serious undertaking. Between, the shampooing, the conditioning, leave-in treatments, blowdrying and styling, the process can sometimes take hours. Ain’t nobody got time for that. So we like to skip the ’poo and rely on chic hats to keep our secret safe. Sue us.

11. “Forgetting” Expiration Dates
Whoops! Did that foundation expire last month? Well, we we just want to get the most out of our makeup  … even if it means bending the rules a bit. We told you, we live life on the edge.

12. Faking It
While we’re in the business of confessing secrets, we’ve got a few more things to admit.  Those chiseled cheekbones, slim nose and even those ultra-perky boobs aren’t ours. They were gifts from the beauty gods. But, the makeup skills are REAL.

’Fess up! Which of these are you guilty of? Or is there one we missed? Tell all in the comments below.

BEAUTY TIPS: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO MAKE FULLER LIPS

BEAUTY TIPS: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO MAKE FULLER LIPS

Like brows, lips are definitely having a moment right now. Thanks to celebrity social feeds and their kissy-face selfies, over-filled lips are everywhere we turn! Never ones to ignore a trend, we’ve searched far and wide for every tip and product that will make your lips appear fuller (sans injections). We went ahead and wrapped up our findings in a package and tied it with a (Cupid’s) bow for ya! Check out this guide devoted to delivering the fullest, prettiest pout of your dreams!

Draw (Slightly) Outside the Lines

With lip fillers on the rise, it seems that when it comes to lips, bigger is best. Everywhere we turn, we see pillowy, plush pouts (say that three times fast!) that waver on the extreme side. Since we’re all about turning up the drama — with makeup — we have no problem turning up the plump ... and the easiest way to get the augmented lip look is by drawing them in. All you need is lip liner, setting powder, lipstick, this tutorial, and you’ll be ready to roll!

Work That Cupid’s Bow

Successfully landing any trend starts with a strong foundation, which is why the Cupid’s bow is such a vital component in the full-lip game. And, even if you don’t have a super-defined bow, every girl should know how to line it (and fake it) the right way. If you’re not one for the steady hand, don’t fret. Drawing in your Cupid’s bow is a matter of “X marks the spot.” So, pick up your lip liner and follow this tutorial!

Pick Up the Highlighter


If you’re short on time and don’t have a minute to line your lips, we have a little tip that will accentuate your lips and make them appear fuller within seconds. And, all it takes is a quick dab of highlighter. Pick up your fave liquid illuminator and follow this super-simple trick. We promise you’ll love the results.

Meet in the Middle

Just as important as your initial conquest for fuller lips, is the finishing touch. No matter what direction or tutorial you opt for, make sure you top off the look with a dab of gloss right on the middle of your pout. While it may seem like an insignificant step, this glossy touch helps accentuate the fullest part of your lips, so don’t skip it!

When In Doubt, Opt for the Quick Fix

If you don’t have the time or patience for any of the tips above, don’t worry. Pouty lips are still available to you via some good ol’ lip-plumping products. Designed for instant gratification, these temporary formulas are created to stimulate the lips and make them swell a bit (the good kind!). While painless and harmless, they usually tingle on initial contact, but within seconds, all you’ll notice are your new lips!
