Laila Ali Carries Jill Milan to HollyRod Foundation’s 16th Annual DesignCare Event

<img style="float:left;margin: 0 20px 10px 0" src="” />
Hollywood (PRWEB) July 21, 2014

Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced Laila Ali carried the luxury brand’s Art Deco Clutch to the HollyRod Foundation’s 16th Annual DesignCare event July 19.

“Laila’s pairing of the Art Deco Clutch with the Michael Costello gown looked wonderful,” said Jill Fraser, Jill Milan founder.

Ms. Ali, the daughter of retired heavyweight boxing legend Muhammad Ali, retired from boxing in 2007 and is now active in television, including co-host appearances on the E! network’s “Fashion Police.”

Proceeds from the DesignCare event benefit the HollyRod Foundation. The foundation, formed in 1997 by actress Holly Robinson Peete and her husband former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, is dedicated to providing care to those living with autism and Parkinson’s disease.

The Art Deco Clutch is a stylish box-shaped metal clutch reminiscent of an early 20th Century cigarette case. It is entirely handmade by an Italian jeweler, and the logo at the top of the clutch functions as the bag’s closure.

Jill Milan handbags are entirely made in Italy, by Italian artisans using Italian materials and features hand stitching. All Jill Milan products are free of animal-based materials such as leather, fur and wool – Ms. Fraser was inspired to found Jill Milan because she was unable to find high-quality, luxury handbags that were not made of leather or other animal-based materials. She is a supporter of animal welfare initiatives, and as a former equestrian particularly supports charities that benefit horses. In 2013 Jill Milan was named Vegan Business of the Year by the organization Vegans are Cool.

Celebrities carrying Jill Milan include Academy Award winners Anne Hathaway, who carried Jill Milan to multiple premieres for her films, and Jennifer Lawrence. Other celebrities carrying Jill Milan for red-carpet appearances:

Using Refillable Electronic Cigarettes

Many people who are thinking about switching over to electronic cigarettes, which are often called smokeless cigarettes or e-cigarettes, find it difficult to figure out what kind of cartridges they want to use with their smokeless cigarettes. They also become very concerned about price since real tobacco cigarettes have become so expensive, and smokers want to know that they’re getting the most puff for their penny.

Smokeless cigarettes run off a battery, which makes an atomizer work inside. The atomizer draws in e-<a href="”>liquid every time a smoker takes a drag, and this causes a nicotine vapor to be let out for the smoker to inhale. E-<a href="”>liquid has nicotine in it, and also has other flavors in it if the smoker wants, and the smoker can even choose what level of flavor and how much nicotine is in the e-<a href="”>liquid. An odorless vapor also comes out of the other end when the smoker puffs, but it’s completely safe and doesn’t smell, so those around the smoker won’t be bothered. To complete the effect, an orange light at the tip lights up.

When making the move from traditional tobacco cigarettes to smokeless cigarettes, the smoker will have the choice of buying refillable electronic cigarettes or disposable e-<a href="”>liquid cartridges. If a smoker choose refillable electronic cigarettes, then they just need to order plenty of e-<a href="”>liquid on hand so that they won’t be stuck and have plenty to refill the cartridge with. If one feels comfortable with refilling refillable electronic cigarettes with e-<a href="”>liquid every time it gets low, then it can be more cost effective than disposable ones, as disposable smokeless cigarette cartridges offer an easy, quick, convenience: all one has to do is make sure they have some backup disposable cartridges with them at all times in case they run out. For refillable electronic cigarettes, one must get used to carefully watching to see if the e-<a href="”>liquid is getting low. If one chooses the refillable electronic cigarettes, they can usually save a fair amount of money by stocking up on e-<a href="”>liquid from their favorite supplier, and some even make their own e-<a href="”>liquid, which probably isn’t the best idea.

Using a refillable electronic cigarette cartridge can be a bit tricky. Most of them aren’t really made to be used over again, but it’s still possible to refill them, it just takes practice and time. Knowing smokers, they’re probably happy either way as long as they’re getting their nicotine fix..

If you’re thinking of switching from tobacco cigarettes to smokeless cigarettes, visit not only offers everything you need for smokeless cigarettes, but they also have a variety of different kinds of <a target="_blank" title="e-<a href="”>liquid” href=””>e-<a href="”>liquid and both disposable and <a target="_blank" title="refillable electronic cigarette" href="”>refillable electronic cigarette cartridges.
