Here’s How to Survive Your Spring Allergies

Here’s How to Survive Your Spring Allergies

There’s nothing more invigorating than opening your window on a spring day and breathing in the fresh air—unless you have spring allergies, that is. In that case, taking a whiff of those budding blooms may only lead to sneezing and wheezing.Allergies, including seasonal allergies, occur when your immune system mistakenly sees typically harmless substances (like pollen) as a threat. This sets off an attack that leads to an allergic reaction, which can affect your nasal passages, skin, airways, eyes, and digestive system. These reactions can range from mild to severe and vary by person, according to the Mayo Clinic. While you can’t cure allergies, you can learn to control them. Here’s how to conquer your spring allergies when pollen season hits full swing.What are the most common spring allergens?Tree pollen is the most common spring allergen, according to a 2021 allergy report from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).1 Even if you don’t live by a forest, tree pollen is more likely to affect you because the pollen grains are very small. We’re talking about the tiniest of pinches containing thousands of grains, which are even smaller than ragweed pollen grains, the main fall allergy offender. The wind can carry tree pollen for several miles, making spring allergies especially hard to avoid.There are lots of different tree types that release pollen associated with spring allergies, including:AshAspenBirchCedarElmHickoryOakOlivePecanPoplarWillowGrass pollens can also trigger spring allergies for many people, but it depends on where you live. In the northern U.S., grass allergies are at their worst in the late spring and early summer. In the south, grasses may release pollen all year long, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Weed pollen is typically more of late summer or early fall allergen, so you might be spared in the spring.Back to topWhat do spring allergy symptoms feel like?Spring allergy symptoms are the result of a complex set of reactions that occur in the body. Researchers tend to break these reactions down into an early phase and a late phase.According to a 2020 study published in the journal Asthma, Allergy, and Clinical Immunology, in the early phase, an allergen (like pollen) enters your body. There are specific receptors on your cells called antigen-specific immunoglobulin e (IgE) receptors. These IgE receptors trigger a rapid response in the body that involves the release of histamines and other substances that quickly trigger symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes.2 Think of these symptoms as those that occur seemingly the minute you step outside on a nice spring day.The late-stage effects are when your body takes hours to respond to allergen exposure. The cells release other substances that cause inflammation in the body. This inflammation then leads to tissue swelling, which can spur nasal congestion and, in some people, asthma symptoms, such as shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing. Uncontrolled asthma can be dangerous, so it’s important to talk with your doctor or allergist if you experience those symptoms.To sum it up, common spring allergy symptoms can include the following:Dark circles under your eyes (known as “allergy shiners”)Itchy eyes and noseRunny noseSneezingStuffy noseWatery eyes“Some people also have really bad fatigue, which can be the major symptom of their seasonal allergies,” Gary Stadtmauer, MD, FACP, an allergist in private practice in New York City, tells SELF. “Those people need to come in to see an allergist and, in my experience, typically need allergy shots.”

Meghan Markle Revived Pretty Woman Style in Polka Dots For Prince Harry’s Polo Match

Meghan Markle Revived Pretty Woman Style in Polka Dots For Prince Harry’s Polo Match

As Julia Roberts famously said in Pretty Woman, “I want the fairytale.” It’s a sentiment a young Meghan Markle – the California girl who went from small-screen star to royal bride when an English prince swept her off her feet – no doubt related to. And an outing for the Duchess of Sussex in Santa Barbara over the weekend suggests Vivian Ward’s post-makeover wardrobe made quite an impression on her, too.
The Duchess turned out to support her husband Prince Harry, a keen polo player, at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, where his Los Padres team took home the Lisle Nixon Memorial trophy on Sunday, and her chosen outfit had more than a dash of Pretty Woman about it. Her breezy blouse with tie-front detail featured a polka-dot print – just like the dress Vivian wears to stomp the divots in the classic rom-com.

Meghan added high-waisted tailored shorts like those that were central to Julia’s ’90s power wardrobe in the film, once she’d relieved the boutiques of Rodeo Drive of much of their stock. Black Aquazzura heels, the requisite hat, and movie-star Valentino shades completed the Duchess’s retro look.

Meghan’s crisp white shorts, cinched with a black belt for added polish, are by Khaite, a New York brand that keeps cropping up in her wardrobe. She paired founder Cate Holstein’s off-the-shoulder bodysuit with tailored black trousers to join Prince Harry on stage at the Invictus Games in The Hague earlier this year. Khaite is typical of the labels that Meghan – who relied on Emilia Wickstead dresses and Givenchy formalwear as a working royal living in the UK – now gravitates towards as a mum-of-two living a private (though no less high-profile) life with her young family in Montecito.
These days, her style leans easy, minimalist and neutral, with a luxe touch. Think: cashmere separates by The Row and Loro Piana suiting for business trips to New York, Chanel ballet flats to pose for a relaxed family portrait, and swathes of taupe Ralph Lauren for a visit to the British Embassy in the Netherlands.

Gemini Season 2022: 20 Gifts That Are Perfect For The Zodiac Sign

Gemini Season 2022: 20 Gifts That Are Perfect For The Zodiac Sign

Gemini season is officially here, starting on May 21 and running on till June 21. As we step into the month of The Twins, Vogue Arabia takes you through the basics about the zodiac sign, and how you can make them feel special on their big day.

Gemini personality traits
Often depicted by a set of twins, Gemini is easily one of the spunkiest—and often most misunderstood—signs of the zodiac. As their official symbol suggests, Gemini individuals tend to have dual personalities. People born under the third sign of the zodiac bring polarizing traits together. They’re outgoing but love their personal space, they’re impulsive but can make good planners, and are extremely affectionate—until they drop a truth bomb on you that stings more than they’d thought it would. Nevertheless, there’s never a dull moment with Mercury babies, who make excellent party hosts, and have a knack for communication that few other signs can compete with. Bonus: Geminis are also exceptionally easy-going (after all, this is an air sign we’re talking about), and their adventurous streak can put a Sagittarius to shame. What’s not to love?
Famous Gemini celebrities
Given their outspoken nature, it comes as no surprise that some of the most talked-about celebrities in the world are Gemini—hi, Angelina Jolie and Kanye West! Others to be born under the air sign are designer Salvatore Ferragamo, musical legend Prince, Hollywood favorites Morgan Freeman, Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp and Nicole Kidman, Spider-Man Tom Holland, Captain America Chris Evans, supermodels Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima and Heidi Klum, musicians Iggy Azalea and Kendrick Lamar, twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, author Salman Rushdie, and tennis pro Venus Williams.
The best birthday gifts for Gemini individuals
Let’s face it: shopping for Geminis is no easy feat. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. Why not celebrate your favorite twin this moment with a sartorial picks that honor their versatility? A neon Balenciaga bag is bound to earn you brownie points, as are Fendi’s topsy-turvy metallic flats abd Saint Laurent’s half-black, half-white jacket, a nod to the sign’s inherent dual nature. As the temperature continues to climb, your Gemini sister is bound to love a summer dress like Zimmermann’s floral number, with Fry Power’s rainbow ring set to match.
Always happy to try something new, Geminis are a great sign to give not-so-basic gifts to. In the mood to experiment? Try boxing up a multicolored poker set, or indulge this sign’s inner party maniac with Pro-Ject’s sleek turntable. For times when they want to wind down, nothing will come in as handy as a Kindle.
And that’s not where the list ends. While Jo Malone’s dual perfume set promises to be a hit in every indecisive Gemini’s vanity pouch, Huda Beauty’s Mercury Retrograde works as a cheeky nod to the ongoing planetary positioning (and its bold color palette does justice to this zodiac sign’s colorful persona).

Dorra Zarrouk’s Ombré Maxi Dress is the Latest Addition to Her Colorful Summer Wardrobe

This season, one need not look further than Dorra Zarrouk‘s Instagram account for summer dressing inspiration. The Tunisian actor has been taking to her social media in a kaleidoscope of colorful looks that range from a printed scarf top with jeans, to her latest, an ombré dress.

Spotted posing at a picturesque location in her recent post, the actor offered her elevated take on the summer maxi, with a two-toned piece by Zimmerman. The strapless number came with a fitted, pink bodice that flows into a flared-out skirt featuring white blending into a wide blue hem. Allowing the dress to be the star of her outfit, Zarrouk accessorized it with a dainty diamond choker and bracelet, which makes the look that much easier to recreate should you wish to for your next daytime event. While her beauty look for the shoot was fairly neutral, Zarrouk sported a thin braid on one side of her middle-parted hair.
Previous noteworthy looks from the actor this season include a co-ord in vibrant citrus hues, a mini Valentino dress, and a hot pink suit paired with black and white sneakers.

Below, check out all of Zarrouk’s looks worth coveting this summer.

The Stocks are Up for Balenciaga with a New Line, New Collaboration, and Disruptive Fashion Show

The Stocks are Up for Balenciaga with a New Line, New Collaboration, and Disruptive Fashion Show

For any magazine editor or client, one of the most exciting moments of fashion week is the arrival of the invitation for the Balenciaga show. As usual, the coveted pass offers a hint of what the following show could entail, and can range from a simple golden thimble to wear around your neck to a smashed iPhone. This time, for the Resort 2023 show hosted over this weekend in New York City, the fashion fantasy started as guests received a paper bag with a stack of Balenciaga faux dollar bills. The immediate effect on social media was priceless.

00:00 / 00:00

As we live in a society where according to Demna Gvasalia, “money is the ultimate fetiche”, the show was hosted at the iconic New York Stock Exchange, which was transformed into a powerful runway lit up by glitching screens, with models wearing fetishist rubber masks. It was all about high energy and fast-paced walking, in true New York City style.

Given that it is, after all, a French brand, all of Paris was pretty much present during the first section of Balenciaga’s show, as it used this occasion to debut its new line, Garde-Robe. Less exclusive than couture, but more elevated than regular ready-to-wear, Garde-Robe is all about luxe materials and sharp finishing, with a true Parisian DNA. Reinvented with new generous “Gvasalian” proportions—and mostly, in black—there were blouses with powerful shoulders and pussy bows, skirts and overcoats in embossed croc, silky trench coats, reconstructed tuxedos, and long bodycon dresses (the sparkly edition really caught our eye!) that will surely make wonders on Isabelle Huppert, one of the House muses.

While the first looks promised to please a more sophisticated audience, the second section at Balenciaga’s showcase brought in color and statement street wear. The new pieces (available only on the brand’s website and at the Madison Avenue boutique) are the result of a new collaboration with Adidas, which also recently partnered with Gucci. Once again, volumes were generous, with the visual identities of both brands merging in revisited logos.

If you ever attend a Balenciaga show, you’ll quickly realize that the style is not only on the runway, and it is a joy to witness the creativity of the fans of the brand. Among the guests, we spotted Kanye West (but no Kim Kardashian), Pharrell Williams, Chloë Sevigny, and Anna Wintour. This is a type of hype and star power that money can’t buy.

Rick Ross Showcased Hundreds of Rare Cars and Bikes at a Show Held at His Georgia Estate

Rick Ross Showcased Hundreds of Rare Cars and Bikes at a Show Held at His Georgia Estate

Rick Ross doesn’t just want people to admire his car collection on social media, he wants them to be able to check it out in person.

That’s why the “Hustlin’” rapper opened up his Fayettville, Georgia, estate for the first annual Promise Land Car and Bike show this past Saturday. Over the course of what looks to have been a gorgeous spring day, auto and rap enthusiasts alike were able to check out some of Rozay’s most prized possessions.

The show, which is named for Ross’s 235-acre mansion and farm about 20 miles south of Atlanta, showcases hundreds of cars belonging not just to him, but also some of the city’s other “big boys” and “superstars,” according to an interview the rapper gave to TMZ last week. A quick look at social media shows that all manner of vehicles were on display, including a red Ferrari 488 GTB, a lime green Chevrolet C8 Corvette and even six-wheel monster truck the emcee took for a quick spin. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but it’s easy to see why the Boss likes his fire engine red 1959 Chevy Bel Air so much.

“As you can see, we could have had many many more people out here, but it wasn’t about how many people we could have. It was just about the comfort zone, the enjoyment level,” a triumphant Ross said in one of his many dispatches from the show. “Once again, man, look at these cars, look at these toys, these trikes, trucks, 6x6s.”
It’s unclear how many people attended the event—Ross guessed that 4,000 or so people would come through—but there was more for them to enjoy than just cars. The show, which Ross said he wanted to have the feel of a “youth fair,” also featured live DJ sets and a battalion of food trucks, according to Complex. The cars, trucks and bikes were the stars, though, with the owners of the most eye-catching rides receiving 24 carat diamond chains from the host.

Ross has never hidden his love of automobiles. Last year, he shared video showing a seemingly unending collection of American classics, including seven of his beloved Bel-Airs. His record label, Maybach Music, is also named for Mercedes-Benz most luxurious sub-brand.

A Rare Shelby Cobra Roadster With Hand-Crafted Aluminum Body Is up for Auction

A Rare Shelby Cobra Roadster With Hand-Crafted Aluminum Body Is up for Auction

If you’re hoping to add a bright new statement piece to your garage, it doesn’t get any shinier than this: A Shelby Cobra CSX4000 Series Roadster with a hand-crafted aluminum body will be going up for auction next month.

The sporty two-seater is a 1965 model of sorts; it was actually built in the early 2000s to honor the 40th anniversary of the Shelby company. It’s No. 29 of 40 made, and only one of five with a hand-crafted, polished aluminum body. Under the hood, an all-aluminum Shelby 427 FE Stroker V-8 engine powers the Cobra with 535 horses and 545 ft lbs of torque. The car also features a Toploader four-speed manual transmission and two Holley four-barrel carburetors. Other standout features include rack and pinion steering, a four-wheel Baer disc brake system and a Shelby/Dana 44 rear differential.

A peek under the hood 

Mecum Auctions

Outside,  the Cobra is nothing if not striking. Its classic curvaceous body comes adorned with brushed aluminum stripes down the middle and a chrome roll hoop. The 15-inch Trigo knock-off wheels are accompanied by vintage Goodyear Eagle Billboard racing tires. And the clear wheel-well protection is contrasted with the soft black fender guards.
Almost as if to let the exterior shine even brighter, the interior is downright minimalist. There’s a wood-rimmed steering wheel and a Carroll Shelby–signed glovebox. The seat upholstery, meanwhile, is sleek black leather, and both the sun visors and wind wings are made of plexiglass. That’s about it—and that’s all you need.

The roadster in profile 

Mecum Auctions

Mecum Auctions is putting the rare car up for auction in Tulsa from June 9 to 11. No pricing estimates are listed, but a similar model hammered down for $205,000 in 2020, Designboom noted.
Collectors, get those bids ready.
