CEO and founder of makeup company LimeCrime and fashion brand Poppy Angeloff, Doe Deere was actually born Xenia Vorotova in Izhevsk, Russia. After emigrating to the US with her mother and sister at the age of 17, she found herself in New York City, where life was more challenging than she imagined.
Throughout her life she idealized the US, considering it to be a place of great opportunity. But after arriving, the realities of living in a new country harshly set in. Her mother, who had been an accomplished accountant in Russia, was unable to get such work in the US since it took so long for her credentials to be sent. In the meantime, she did domestic work while Deere and her sister worked hard to sustain the family financially. But unfortunately, they had to ultimately move into a homeless shelter. Yet here they had access to important resources which helped them get their lives back on track. They learned about a non-profit called Sanctuary for Immigrants, led by Dorchen Leidholdt. Described by Deere as “a lawyer, feminist, and all-around inspiring woman,” she helped the family move into an apartment. Although it was in a rough neighborhood, they had their own space with a kitchen and separate rooms for Deere and her sister. Leidholdt also helped the family in other ways. Deere’s mother was able to get a job as an accountant, her sister got into Columbia University, and Deere got into the Fashion Institute of Technology through her efforts.
Afterwards, Deere became a serial entrepreneur creating brands like LimeCrime and Poppy Angeloff. LimeCrime is currently in its 10th year. It has various lines of makeup, lipstick, and other beauty products, often featured in bright colors. They have the distinction of selling products that aren’t tested on animals and are also vegan, meaning that they don’t include animal ingredients or by-products like beeswax, carmine, or other compounds. Poppy Angeloff is Deere’s new jewelry brand, that includes Victorian-inspired jewelry and carries the Victoria theme into its Pansy logo. With Poppy Angeloff, Deere plans to sell heirloom jewelry at affordable prices.

Throughout the past few years, the Chainsmokers have risen from the depths of obscurity to become one of the most famous musical acts of our generation. So just how have they managed to accrue such a pervasive amount of fame in such a short period of time? Alex Pall recently sat down with Mathias Rosenzweig to discuss how they rocketed to success, how they deal with the fame and fortune, and where they would like to go in the future of their career. The two first met in the big apple when Andrew Taggart was matriculating at one of the local universities and Pall was trying to make it as a fledgling DJ. It was Pall’s manager who introduced them and they instantly knew they would work well together which led to their frequent collaborations in the studio.
It wasn’t long before they were making music together on a regular basis and, before long, they had their first hit single on their hands with the release of Selfie. One hit single led to another and, before they knew it, they had become a household name. When discussing their most recent collaboration with Halsey, he had nothing but nice things to say about her, noting that she’s a fun and unique artist who isn’t afraid to let her individuality shine through. While most DJs don’t sing on their own songs, they are one of the few exceptions but they insist it’s necessary due to the fact that the lyrics pertain to their own lives and experiences.
Their fanbase used to consist mostly of high school students and young adults but it has since expanded to include people of all ages. As for their live concerts, they’ve been constantly growing and evolving as the music industry continues to change. And they have said they have no interest in taking any sort of hiatus from the music industry as they realize things wouldn’t be the same upon their return. So we wish them the best of luck in the future of their careers and hope they have continued success in the music industry.
Due to the increase in the use of virtual gaming gear over the few years, the digital networks that offer such items have also increased immensely. With more accessibility, there has been an increased vulnerability of players to fall prey to cyber attacks. Gamers are at times exploited by being charged high fees for these items. WAX a decentralized platformv that allows people to buy and sell virtual assets seeks to address these issues.
One of the key steps the team at WAX has done to make this happen is consolidating the marketplace and putting in place a one-stop shop for such items. To make things even easier, the firm has come up with WAX tokens, a blockchain technology, to facilitate the exchange of these digital assets. With WAX tokens, hackers are kept away, and currency exchange fees are eliminated, making it convenient for gamersv to transact. For gamers, this is quite an experience since many of the weapon skins traded by WAX are unique. They are even allowing the gamers to apply appealing designs to their weapons. It is no doubt that WAX is revolutionizing the online game trading platform.
