Harding students love supporting a good cause, especially when they can get a good quality product in the process. Enter Lily & Laura. These two women decided that they wanted to find a way to help women in Nepal earn a fair wage. They created a company to train the women how to make these hand beaded bracelets and then Lily & Laura sell them in America. The women are seen as artisans in their community. Besides the owners, the entire staff of Lily & Laura are from Nepal.
The designs are partly their own. To create a unique and quality accessory, they use some of the finest glass beads in the world. This also ensures that each bracelet will be slightly varied and there are no two alike. Customers have their own small collections of bracelets that they like to mix and match depending on their outfit or mood. They have become almost like trading cards or friendship bracelets because of the way girls will share and swap and pass them along.
While I have yet to see Lily & Laura bracelets abound on Harding’s campus, they are extremely popular back home and it is only a matter of time before they catch on here too.

SNCF and the city of Versailles have partnered to create 6 newly-decorated “chateau de Versailles” cars that will be circulating on the RER C line. There are 7 different themes: The Hall of Mirrors, The Battles Gallery, The Temple of Love, The Queen’s Chamber, The Grand Trianon, Charles X’s Royal Carriage and Louis XVI’s Library. 
Seriously, when can I go back to Paris?
