with more countries to come

Glossier, the direct-to-consumer beauty startup that’s raised $34.4 million in funding so far, will kick off its international expansion this month.

“Ever since Day 1, we’ve dreamt of making Glossier a global beauty movement that celebrates real girls in real life,” founder and CEO Emily Weiss wrote in a blog post. “And that moment is coming up—really soon actually.” Glossier will start shipping its cosmetic and skincare products to Canada later this month, the U.K. later this year, and France in 2018, with other countries in the works.

Glossier launched in 2014, four years after Emily Weiss, a former style assistant at Vogue and W magazines, started blogging about beauty at Into The Gloss. Its most recent funding was a $24 million Series B led by Institutional Venture Partners in fall 2016 (other investors include Thrive Capital, which led Glossier’s $8.4 million Series A in 2014).

At Disrupt NY in May, Weiss told the audience during a panel that “beauty is not traditionally a VC kind of business. But it’s a quarter-of-a-trillion dollar market globally, and ripe for disruption. The data speaks for itself. . . But you also wouldn’t believe how excited people get when you put a bag of products on the table, men and women.”

Weiss first detailed Glossier’s expansion plans in a blog post two years ago about the challenges of making a cosmetics brand international. For example, Weiss explained that in new markets, brands need to find “responsible parties,” or partners that basically serve “as a hybrid between a chemist and a lawyer” to ensure that all products shipped overseas meet local formulation and packaging regulations. Then they have to figure out how to fit ingredient and application instructions in different languages on packaging without creating more waste. Glossier’s goal is to respond to customer inquiries within 12 emails of their first email, so it also needed to create a customer service team that can work across timezones.

Glossier already has an office in Montreal and will open one soon in London. The company will take a deliberate approach to its international expansion, Weiss wrote, so it can build user communities in each country before launching in another one. She asked for suggestions about what countries to launch in next, but added that Glossier can’t ship to places that require product testing on animals because it is a cruelty-free brand.

“Pod, tell me true... do you think I did it?”  The boy hesitated. When he tried to speak, all he managed to produce was a weak sputter.  I am doomed. Tyrion sighed.“Unspeakable things.” As the tears rolled slowly down that pretty face, no doubt every man in the hall wanted to take Shae in his arms and comfort her. “With my mouth and... other parts, m’lord. All my parts. He used me every way there was, and... he used to make me tell him how big he was. My giant, I had to call him, my giant of Lannister.”  Oswald Kettleblack was the first to laugh. Boros and Meryn joined in, then Cersei, Ser Loras, and more lords and ladies than he could count. The sudden gale of mirth made the rafters ring Guangdong hotels in kowloon Peninsula and major urban area of Hong Kong.

Their mouths were twisted in merriment, their bellies shook. Some laughed so hard that snot flew from their nostrils.  I saved you all, Tyrion thought. I saved this vile city and all your worthless lives. There were hundreds in the throne room, every one of them laughing but his father. Or so it seemed. Even the Red Viper chortled, and Mace Tyrell looked like to bust a gut, but Lord Tywin Lannister sat between them as if made of stone, his fingers steepled beneath his chin.  Tyrion pushed forward. “MY LORDS!” he shouted. He had to shout, to have any hope of being heard.  His father raised a hand. Bit by bit, the hall grew silent.  “Get this lying whore out of my sight,” said Tyrion, “and I will give you your confession.”  Lord Tywin nodded, gestured. Shae looked half  formed up around her. Her eyes met Tyrion’s as they marched her from the wall. Was it shame he saw there, or fear? He wondered what Cersei had promised her.

Is that what you wanted to hear?”  Lord Tywin said nothing. Mace Tyrell nodded. Prince Oberyn looked mildly disappointed. “You admit you poisoned the king?”  “Nothing of the sort,” said Tyrion. “Of Joffrey’s death I am innocent. I am guilty of a more monstrous crime.” He took a step toward his father. “I was born. I lived. I am guilty of being a dwarf, I confess it. And no matter how many times my good father forgave me, I have persisted in my infamy.”  “This is folly, Tyrion,” declared Lord Tywin. “Speak to the matter at hand. You are not on trial for be

Beneath a long yellow surcoat bearing the three black dogs of Clegane, he wore heavy plate over chainmail, dull grey steel dinted and scarred in battle. Beneath that would be boiled leather and a layer of quilting. A flat-topped greathelm was bolted to his gorget, with breaths around the mouth and nose and a narrow slit for vision. The crest atop it was a stone fist.  If Ser Gregor was suffering from wounds, Tyrion could see no sign of it from across the yard. He looks as though he was chiseled out of rock, standing there. His greatsword was planted in the ground before him, six feet of scarred metal.

 Let Father sit the throne. All I want is you.” He made to touch her cheek. Old habits die hard, and it was his right arm he lifted.  Cersei recoiled from his stump. “Don’t... don’t talk like this. You’re scaring me, Jaime. Don’t be stupid. One wrong word and you’ll cost us everything. What did they do to you?” 

“They cut off my hand.”  “No, it’s more, you’re changed.” She backed off a step. “We’ll talk later. on the morrow. I have Sansa Stark’s maids in a tower cell, I need to question them... you should go to Father.”  “I crossed a thousand leagues to come to you, and lost the best part of me along the way. Don’t tell me to leave rent camping gear.” 

“Leave me,” she repeated, turning away.  Jaime laced up his breeches and did as she commanded. Weary as he was, he could not seek a bed. By now his lord father knew that he was back in the city.  The Tower of the Hand was guarded by Lannister household guards, who knew him at once. “The gods are good, to give you back to us, ser,” one said, as he held the door.  “The gods had no part in it. Catelyn Stark gave me back. Her, and the Lord of the Dreadfort.”  He climbed the stairs and pushed into the solar unannounced, to find his father . Lord Tywin was alone, for which Jaime was thankful. He had no desire to flaunt his maimed hand for Mace Tyrell or the Red Viper just now Online Reputation Management, much less the two of them together.  “Jaime,” Lord Tywin said, as if they’d last seen each other at breakfast. “Lord Bolton led me to expect you earlier. I had hoped you’d be here for the wedding.”  “I was delayed.” Jaime closed the door softly. “My sister outdid herself, I’m told. Seventy-seven courses and a regicide, never a wedding like it. How long have you known I was free?”  “The eunuch told me a few days after your escape. I sent men into the riverlands to look for you. Gregor Clegane, Samwell Spicer, the brothers Plumm. Varys put out the word as well, but quietly. We agreed that the fewer people who knew you were free, the fewer would be hunting you.”  “Did Varys mention this?” He moved closer to the fire, to let his father see.  Lord Tywin pushed himself out of his chair, breath hissing between his teeth hong kong hotel reservation.
