It appears as though T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s are in the midst of fading out Ivanka Trump items from their stores. The retail stores appear to be following in the steps of Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, which just last week dropped Trump’s brand.
Tyra Banks beauty line “Tyra Beauty” as well as “the Honest Company,” which is affiliated with Jessica Alba have also just announced that they will no longer advertise during “the Apprentice” on NBC. The online retailer “shoes.com” has also dropped Trump brands.
psa: for those of you who are unaware, for a lot of retail stores closing time is the actual closing time, employees aren’t given extra time to clean up the store so if you have to come in shortly before close, leave as little mess as possible

transcript of the speech i gave at Vassar’s black baccalaureate service
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, honored guests, and the Vassar class of 2017.
Just saying that aloud made me feel old. Class of 2017? Most of y'all were born after dark-skinned Aunt Viv left the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. That’s wild.
I want to first thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a special moment in your lives. I am honored, privileged, and a bit in disbelief that you asked me of all people to give this address. I try not to have feelings, and I’m going to do my best not to cry today, but no promises.
I’m here to stand in the gap between you and your parents and guardians and any other elders in your lives that you stopped listening to because you thought they were wack and out of touch. I remember being in your shoes not TOO long ago, and it is my fervent prayer that something that I say here today will help you avoid some of the mess I went through.
To be honest I’m a little nervous, but I figured there was no way could this be worse than when Betsy DeVos went down to Bethune-Cookman, so let’s get started.
As you transition to life after Vassar the changes will be both inevitable and swift, so I’d like to begin by giving you some well-intentioned advice and warning you about the continued process of becoming an adult.
“For what? Not helping me with the table or being a dick to me the last month?” Y/N snaps, grabbing a fist full of his shirt.
Harry presses his lips in a line, he’s trying his hardest not to laugh. Y/N didn’t seem like the type to swear and she looked cute when she got mad. Her nose would flare in anger and she would let out an annoyed sigh. Her hand moved from his shirt to his arm and she gripped it tightly (and Harry felt like maybe, just maybe, it was supposed to hurt him).
“You’re cute when you’re mad,” Harry chuckles.
“And you’re cute when you’re not a fucking asshole,” Y/N retorts.
Harry laughs, his grip on her tighten slightly as he lets out a huge and loud laugh, “oi! What was that for?” he asks when he feels a sting on his arm.
“For being mean to me the last month, what did I do?” Y/N asks.
“Yeh did nothing,” Harry says, and he feels Y/N’s hand smack his arm again, “okay-fuck, you’re strong for such a little thing,” he grumbles, “I heard you talking about me to the rest, laughing, saying you would never date me-oi! That’s the last one you get, next one, I leave you here and you can hop all the way up the path on your own.”
Harry works at a summer camp where he really hates kids and people, but Y/N is an exception.
Amazing: Yankee Candle Is Releasing A Candle That Smells Like A Sweaty Teenager For Moms Who Miss Their Kids Who Are Away At College
We don’t want to call it too early, but it looks like we might have a winner for the most popular new holiday shopping item of the year: Yankee Candle is releasing a candle that smells like a sweaty teenager for moms who miss their kids who are away at college.
According to Yankee Candle’s website, the new “Sweaty Teen” candle boasts subtle hints of body odor and dirty laundry thrown on a bedroom floor, and will make any home smell like it’s inhabited by a high school student still getting a handle on personal hygiene. Any mom who’s been missing her kid after moving them into their dorm room just needs to light this candle and the aromas will instantly take her back to those happy days when her child was still walking around the house wearing the same sweatpants five nights in a row.
While Yankee Candle plans to stock Sweaty Teen candles in both its retail locations and digital store in time for Black Friday this November, the company said that it doesn’t expect supplies to last long due to overwhelming consumer demand for a candle that smells like a combination of topical acne medication and cheap marijuana poorly masked with an excessive amount of Febreze. If you want one, you should probably pre-order now, because there’s a good chance that moms everywhere are going to be completely buying out these clammy new candles to fill their homes with the nostalgic smell of sweat and grime that perfectly evokes their absent college-age teen.
The countdown is on! We can’t wait for this new scent!
The Fourth of July is the holiday on which Americans give thanks twice as much to George Washington, George Bush, George Herbert Walker Bush, and Jimmy Carter.
One common American tradition on the Fourth of July is that of the Presidential Prayer Beads. At dinner time, one family member takes out a bracelet with 45 beads and uses it to help name each president and their role in building America. Every time the country elects a new President, families add a bead to their bracelet. Highly observant families also have bracelets devoted to the number of states, Constitutional Amendments, and Sessions of Congress.
Families settle down to the Independence Dinner after they finish counting and reciting all their beads and praying to each president. There is no single type of Independence Dinner. This reflects how America is a melting pot or tossed salad of different cultures and ways of life. In fact, that’s just what a lot of Americans do: they serve melting pots and tossed salads, but what’s in those meals differs with each region, city, or even neighborhood!
During the Independence Dinner, all Americans have their tv, radio, or web browsers open, listening for the First Bite made by the president. It’s customary that no one in the family starts eating until the President takes a bite of his or her own dinner, which has been broadcast throughout the country as long as there has been sound recording equipment or word of mouth in the Washington, D.C. It used to be a custom that the President would visit a household and take the First Bite from their dinner, but this ended with the Scalding of 1949.
After the Independence Dinner, Americans set out their lawn chairs on the grass, dirt, balcony, or in front of an open window. They do this to get a perfect view of the Fourth of July Fireworks. If you are staying in America during the Fourth of July, you will not need to travel very far to see the show because they are visible in virtually every part of the country. If an American does not live closer to a fireworks show, there is a good chance that their household plans to hold a fireworks show that year. Many states restrict the sale of fireworks, but if an American goes to a store and says I am holding a Fourth of July Fireworks show the law enforcement will usually look the other way. In major cities, this is less important because the town government will pay for the fireworks show.
When the Fourth of July Fireworks end, most Americans go to sleep. All burnt fireworks are recycled and all unused fireworks are sold back to retail stores at half price. If an American lives near the border with Mexico or Canada, they may cross the border to spread the festivities.
I hope this has been helpful. Criticisms and questions are welcome. If I missed something, please let me know. Happy Fourth of July!
