Your Hoodie Just Updated Your Facebook Status

In Electronics, Fashion on April 27, 2010 at 4:58 pm

Who would have thought that you could accept a friend request on Facebook via your hoodie? That concept is so “back to the future”, along with hover skateboards. Well I guess the future is here!

Ping, developed by Jennifer Darmour (Seattle-based user experience designer), is a social networking garmet that allows you to stay connected with your facebook friends off screen.

The technologically advanced garmet connect you wirelessly and perform functions on facebook simply by performing natural gestures that are built into the mechanics of the garments we wear. You literally just have to lift up a hood, tie a bow, zip, button, and simply move, bend and swing to ping your friends naturally and automatically. No phone, no laptop, no hardware. Simply go about your day, look good and stay connected.

This garmet almost seems too good to be true. Does it really keep you connected to the internet and performing “friend requests” while you cruise the mall or drive to work? How do you visually see what you are doing on Facebook? I would hate to “poke” someone I don’t know or deny a friend request because I accidentally lifted my hood over my head.

If this concept does work, in theory and in practice, will the mobile device soon become extinct and we stay connected via our pashminas?

I am excited to see what develops in the wearable technology world!

Tender Lovin Care

In Beauty on April 26, 2010 at 2:16 pm

There are times when we have to talk and deal with beauty situations that are unattractive (sigh), even though we never want to admit that we cope with waxing, razor burn, body odor, etc. Razor burn and in-grown hairs (yuck) are issues that plague both men and women and no matter how sharp your razor blade is, unsightly skin rashes occur. Thankfully, Tend Skin is here to save the day.

Tend Skin was accidentally discovered by a dentist in 1985, this unique formulation was a side effect of medication given to a patient who informed the doctor that something was suddenly clearing his skin of unsightly razor bumps. Since then, many other uses for Tend Skin have been discovered. Tend Skin will improve the appearance of razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and redness caused by hair removal. Excellent for both women and men, you will see results in 24 hours!

Tend Skin’s latest addition to their product line is the Tend Skin Refillable Roll On. This easy to use roll on improves the appearance of unsightly razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and redness from shaving, waxing, and electrolysis. It is suited for use on mens’ faces, necks, and scalps and women’s legs, underarms, and bikini lines.

I’ve been using Tend Skin for years and although it burns like crazy when applied to freshly shaved skin (pain disappears after 10 seconds), it really works.

Super Skinny

In Fashion on April 20, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Skinny Jeans have been in since Fall ’09 but I haven’t found the perfect pair until now! Free People (my favorite store in the world) has a new Super Stretch Denim Legging that flatters every body type. These jeans have an elastic waistband and 5-pocket styling, and the pull on/off style makes them super comfortable to wear. Just remember to wear a long shirt to cover the elastic waistband (nobody needs to see that). 😉

They come in dark denim, white, and black; they look great with flats, gladiators or riding boots and pair well with blousy shirts, under skirts or with a skinny tank! Best of all? They are super affordable!

Oh So Kai

In Beauty on April 19, 2010 at 5:16 pm

Beauty lies in the simplest and purest of things. Kai Fragrance Line brings this idea to life by using exotic fragrance and natural essences in a light and intoxicating way. I’ve been using Kai lotion for years and it is my go-to fragrance. Celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Pamela Anderson, Lauren Conrad, and Reese Witherspoon (to name a few) are devotees to Kai.

Their classic scented moisturizer contains safflower seed oil, shea butter, apricot kernel oil, and cucumber fruit extract and it may be the best smelling stuff on earth. Their products are paraben-free, sulfate-free, never tested on animals, packaged in recycled materials and are made in the USA.

Long, drapy scarfs are the perfect way to add texture, layers and class to any outfit! This Chan Luu muted-rose colored scarf is ideal for spring! This long length of jersey arrives with gentle pleats, which then stretch out to create a softly textured scarf. It measures a very long 90″ by 20″ (excellent for looping).
