Just in time for International Women's Day, Starbucks is launching a new coffee roast: The Siren's Blend. The name pays homage to Starbucks heritage and the siren, the company's symbol. The Siren's Blend was inspired (and created) by women who were at the forefront of coffee production. Siren's Blend was inspired by an old '90s blend called Siren's Note, created by Mary Williams, one of Starbucks' early coffee developers. Over 20 years later, Mary Mayorquin, Senior Manager of Global Coffee Strategy and Development, was inspired to reinvent this blend to honor the contribution of women in coffee production and to create a versatile blend never seen before in the range.
Mary Williams joined Starbucks in 1993 and was Senior Vice President of Coffee until she retired in 2003. In this role, her job was to ensure Starbucks served only the finest coffees in the world. She was therefore responsible for purchasing the raw coffee, searching for new coffees, roasting, mixing and developing the recipe. In addition, she has helped establish a stronger foundation for coffee training across the company. In a male-dominated industry, Mary Williams has broken down barriers with her unmatched taste buds and dedication to coffee farmers.
“The fact that the Siren's Blend was developed to honor women is something special and certainly a milestone to be very proud of. I never thought that this is possible! As with everything, there is always room for improvement. It is very exciting for me to witness this change and to see how the number of women in the coffee industry is growing. I look forward to what the future has in store for us,”
says Mary Williams.

The beauty brand created by Huda Kattan in 2013 has now cult status mostly thanks to its liquid lipsticks, is back today with a new vegan formula!
Huda Beauty decided to create its own long-wear liquid lipsticks with no transfer, and all while giving you the impression that we you are wearing nothing at all, and it was a successful bet.
Now available in a wide choice of colors suitable for all skin tones, these liquid lipsticks have become entirely vegan while retaining the fine texture that makes them unique. This is partly explained by its unique Lip L.O.V.E complex (lycopene, olive oil, vitamins A and E, essential fatty acids) which preserves the suppleness of the lips throughout the day!
Its ultra-pigmented formula, with a very fine texture, non-drying, which does not flake, run, fade or transfer, will become the ally of the most beautiful smiles.
New Huda Beauty products are available at Sephora and on manor.ch/sephora.
Hublot has opened its fourth Italian boutique in the heart of the Quadrilatero della Moda fashion district in Milan. The opening was celebrated with an unforgettable evening during Milan Fashion Week.
Milan, the capital of fashion, design and Italian sophistication, now counts another unmissable address: the new Hublot boutique. Ideally located at Via Verri 7, in the heart of the Quadrilatero della Moda fashion district, this new flagship of the Swiss brand is managed by Italian specialist Pisa Orologeria. The 60.7 square meter boutique extends over two floors. The ground floor is reserved for sale, while the first floor, accessible by a lift, is designed as a lounge with a bar area and sofas. Like the other Hublot flagship stores around the world, this boutique is characterized by an elegant and sophisticated interior made of glass, wood and metal in a color palette ranging from brown to gray to black. A framework in perfect harmony with the motto of the house - "The Art of Fusion".
Parallel to Milan Fashion Week, the opening of the new boutique was celebrated as only Hublot can. The evening's hosts, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, and Chiara Ferragni, global brand ambassador, businesswoman, entrepreneur and influencer, together welcomed the approximately 100 invited guests and media representatives to the impressive East End Studios, a former aircraft factory from the early twentieth century. There, at a giant table 21 meters long and 16 meters wide in the shape of the Hublot logo, guests enjoyed a gala dinner hosted by the famous 3 Michelin star restaurant Da Vittorio. In the middle of the table, on the cross of the H, there was a show where the artists Mahmood and Blanco performed and put on an unforgettable performance.
