Itsy Bitsy Bettinis

In Fashion, Travel on July 28, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Fact or Ficton: Full size bikini bottoms make your tush look bigger. Fact. After years of painfully dealing with “dumpy butt” bathing suits, I realized that smaller bikini bottoms actually make your gluteus maximus look better (even if its not perfect). Brazilian cut bikinis became my new best friend but unfortunately, I only found bikinis I loved in Hawaii. Until recently…

Aloha Bettinis. No longer do I have to scour through racks of bathing suits to find bikini bottoms that flatter me. Bettinis Bikinis are perfectly cut, uber-soft bikinis built with comfortable elastic and adorable lace lining. These bikinis are so amazing that Sports Illustrated featured them in their famed Swimsuit issue (February 2010) on none other than the supermodel Bar Refaeli. Miss Refaeli rocked the “itsy” bikini which is…itsy. Bless her perfect tush.

Your summer hasn’t started until you’ve strutted your stuff in these amazing Bettinis!

Power Cords are oh-so 90’s

The Powermat is a slim and sleek new way to wirelessly charge all your favorite devices from one power source without the tangled mess of wires. A magnetic attraction between every receiver and each access point on every mat assures that alignment is precise and the most efficient charging will occur—it’ll be as fast or faster than the original power adapter.

The dandy “power-parking” mat delivers an exact amount of power for the proper length of time so that the transfer of power is safe and efficient and no energy is ever wasted, aka, it’s nice to the environment. Furthermore, the mat has four charging positions–three wireless, and one wired USB connector for charging a fourth device (iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, and computer). Voila!

Buy It: Amazon
Cost: $99.00

Shu Swine Flu

In Health & Fitness, Travel on October 22, 2009 at 3:45 pm


With the fear of Swine Flu lurking on every doorknob and escalator railing, the need for sanitizing wipes, sprays, and gels is even more important. Dissolving Travel Toiletries are the next big thing in portable cleanliness.

Each of these Travel Toiletries is a marvel of modern science. Open a pack, remove one of the 50 sheets, and add water. It dissolves into a cleaning product, which you then can use as you are already (hopefully) accustomed. In our experience, 3-4 sheets of shampoo will clean a moderate head of hair. As for the body wash, it will depend on the size of the body you are cleaning, naturally. These are perfect to keep in your desk, your purse, your man bag, your carry-on luggage – everywhere you might encounter unwanted grime. Now if we could only purge that dirty mind of yours . . . .

Cost: $4.00 – $12.00
