To Bling or Not to Bling?!

Sooo, I’m officially tired of my Nokia E71. Loved this phone, but the interface is just so dated, and it’s impossible view PDF’s or attachments from my emails.

All of my friends (and hubby), have been telling me to jump on the Iphone bandwagon. Can’t say that I’m a happy camper, but I’ve thrown up the white flag and will have to surrender.

If I move forward, the real question now is, “To Bling or not to Bling”.

So, I decided not to bling out my Iphone, because the sparkly swarovski stones, apparently ending up messing with the quality of the photo.  I read this on several blogs, then decided to test it out myself.  I slapped on a gorgeous blinged out case, and snapped picture with and then w/o the case.

To my surprise, the flash and swarovski stones don’t get along.  The result, a bright and foggy looking photo.  The sales lady still tried to push me to buy the case, but I politely mentioned how I’d like to be able to use the camera on my photo.  Since I do looooove to randomly snap photos for my blogging.  Case closed!

Why I’m in Love with the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

Sephora has been a long time favorite of mine, but as of late, they are lacking the variety of new and exciting brands. I find that many of the products they put on their “top recommendation” lists, are simply a hit or miss.

It’s relieving to finally come across a gorgeous apothecary like Skins 6/2 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. This mega beauty haven has all of the hard to find beauty brands like Love & Toast (hand creme), Creed (perfume), and Lash Royalty (falsie lashes).

The staff is extremely helpful and will even do a quick makeup touch up upon request. I also like the fact that Skins 62 is located right next door to Marquee nightclub, making it extra convenient for me to swing by and get my lashes and last minute beauty needs before I hit the dance floor!

C’mon, the case costs more than the IPAD!

When it comes to the fashion powerhouse Chanel, you can definitely expect a hefty price tag to go along with their accessories.  I love my IPAD, but probably won’t be bringing out my credit card anytime soon to make this purchase.  I mean with a Chanel handbag, at least I could justify using it because I can actually use it to tote around my necessities.

Do I love this Chanel IPAD case, YESSSSS!  I just wish the price tag was a tad bit lower.  =)

Laduree Macarons in Ginza (Tokyo)

I have a secret crush on macarons. ❤ I originally wanted to try the macarons @ Laduree, but ended up trying Dallayou instead, at the suggestion of my girlfriend.

I’m glad that I did, because Dallayou macarons were heavenly.

 

Spent my Winter on the beach!

2010 was a fantastic year, filled with unforgettable memories.  My husband and I, kicked off the year by spending a couple of weeks in pure sunshine and tropical weather. We managed to run out businesses remotely, but still had plenty of time to relax.

Are you eating FAKE blueberries?

Sometimes you really don’t get what you pay for.  In today’s news on LA Times.com, I came across a very disturbing article about major food companies cutting corners by putting “fake” blueberries in their foods.  People are usually  buy a cereal or snack that contains fruit, because they automatically think it will be healthier.  Blueberry has gotten really popular over the years, because it is very healthy and contains antioxidants.  It’s a shame that big and well known food companies are clearly taking advantage of consumers.
