Today LeBody launches in the United States

LeBody Form
In the world of beauty news today, Korean beauty brand LeBody has launched here in the United States. As one of the most high-tech, innovative brands in the world today, LeBody utilizes both LED light therapy and EMS mid-frequency, as well as, electrical ionization and micro-current technology to revive and refresh both your body and your face. Featuring targeted devices including LeBody Form (for the body) and LeBody Face (for the face), this world-renowned K-Beauty brand has a mission to make your skin look and feel amazing using only advanced beauty science.

Capturing only the latest and greatest in beauty technology, this Korean beauty brand continues to create portable beauty essentials that not only change your skin, but your life also. And as an internationally known trend leader, LeBody wants to bring those luxury lavish devices you see in doctor's offices to your home.

In fact, Ace Lopez the marketing manager of the brand recently shared, "our goal at LeBody is to take the high-end, advanced technology you see in luxury doctors’ offices, and bring that into the homes of people around the world." He continued, "with our targeted face and body devices, we are continuing to pioneer new methods of body slimming, skin lifting and generally improved health."

Why LeBody?

The portable face device LeBody Face uses electrical ionization and micro-currents to stimulate elastin in the skin for an instant lifting effect, while absorbing active ingredients. This device also rearranges collagen and improves the elasticity in your skin while restoring your skin's natural acid mantle. All you have to do is apply the cream and gel, before taking control of the hand-held device and switching it from the blue light to the red light. Then, just go evenly over your skin with an upward stroke. The results are not only instantaneous, but long-lasting too.
LeBody Face


Not just for the face

Utilizing only EMS mid-frequency, the LeBody Form device helps increase energy consumption, so it works to burn fat components in the body by directly stimulating, strengthening and activating those muscles for only slimmer results. The application embraces simplicity and is very easy to use as all you have to do is apply the high-quality LeBody cream, place the convenient device on the problematic area, lock in the secure strap and go on about your day.

Drawing the line on Fake News

I voted for Donald J. Trump in 2016
in Idaho. Today, I have no regrets
and am proud of the decision
I made to help elect him as president.
Silence is golden, as duct tape is silver, but the human voice is platinum, are wise words to live by. And I am thankful everyday that I can use mine. You know, the voice. But where do we draw the line on fake news? Fake news is simply yellow journalism which is created intentionally to spread malicious propaganda, hoping the reader will not only fall for it, but spread the story. This is in addition to hoping the masses will follow, embracing the domino effect. Most of the time those who spread such agitprop are looking for a reaction from the reader and of course money from the clicks to story itself.

What really happens when you spread Fake News

An unidentified third-party may contact a media outlet about Donald Trump. The reporter who first heard of the story has decided they dislike Donald Trump for his past behavior, so this reporter has made a decision that they want to take the information about the president and exaggerate it to fit their narrative.

Without fact checking nor separating fact from fiction, the story then becomes amplified with untruths just because that reporter has decided they do not like Trump. Kind of like taking an original classic song and adding an array of pro tools to make it sound better when really the song sounds overproduced and worse. Now, does the song sound anymore truthful because of it's overproduction? Maybe this isn't the best example.

How about this? It is a fact school shootings have occurred in a fascist nation of the land of free and the home of the brave (the United States), but one must consider the legitimacy of their stories as according to the NPR (with the help of non-profit Child Trends) in an article titled 'The School Shootings That Weren't' there are quite a few that never even happened.

Was the intent to create a school shooting to strip away our 2nd amendment right? Guns are portrayed as being weapons used to kill, but nothing is mentioned about the strengths of a gun and how they can protect the people. Although you may or may not ever hear about this in the news, fake news will never cover the strengths of ever owning any kind of rifle or pistol. The fake news also camouflages the harsh realities and aftermath of school shootings and hurts real victims testimonies.

Donald Trump Tries To Stop It

The president of the United States, Donald Trump has been dubbed a "loose cannon" for calling out this ongoing, problematic issue. Because of this, people see him as the problem and not the solution. Instead of being thankful for Trump's ability to address these ongoing issues and want to fix them, they want to make him the issue. Why? It is a well known fact that those who continue to embrace various news outlets tend to overlook the problem at hand and go after anyone who uses their voice to challenge the problem.

When Trump originally coined the "fake news" term he was merely defending himself from the lies and untruths being spread about him. The 45th president of the United States used his liberty to defend others who are also a target of this type of disinformation spiel and went on to dispute the puff pieces created by various fake news outlets trying to push Hillary Clinton into office. And because most of these zines lack identity, it makes litigation extremely difficult to pursue.

The End Result

If a reporter creates a story with one-dimensional, aggregated news content, does that mean the reporter is right and the reader is wrong for questioning it? What if that reporter covers a story, but neglects the points they are trying to make by concealing their views with deconstructionism and banal reductionism based on opinion and heresy? As everyone has the right to free speech and freedom of press is embraced in more ways than one, does this mean they have the right to publish whatever they choose to a platform with a bigger audience? Fake news is equivocally fabricated and manipulated as well as, relentlessly mocked to not just media and journalism, but to those who are engaged and affected by it. And because of its nature, it can cause more harm than not. There are consequences to every action and it is crystal clear these consequences are inevitable to avoid.

This goes with the question we all have-where do we really draw the line on fake news?

Get the Look: Dior Men 2019 Pre-Fall Show

Photo by Lorenzo Dalbosco/Dior
(used with permission)
In 1947, Christian Dior had a vision to become one of the world's biggest fashion empires, when he debuted his first collection. As we look at what has become of this world-renowned fashion house, we see nothing short of panache, epitomizing only elegance in both the world of fashion and the world of beauty. And as gusto as the Dior was then, today in 2018 his legacy lives on. Dior's newest collection for Pre-Fall 2019 was designed by Kim Jones and presented in Tokyo, creative and image director of Dior, Peter Philips created a dramatic yet cyber-chic look which he says is inspired by the great science-fiction classic "TRON".

So, is it possible to re-create this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the internationally known groomer prepped the models skin. Using only Dior beauty products, his goal was to keep the models' skin as hydrated as possible. "I hydrated the skin well with the Dior Homme Dermo skincare line." Philips applied the Dior Invigorating Moisturizing Emulsion followed by the Dior Pore Control Perfecting Essence and the Dior Anti-Fatigue Firming Eye Serum.

Then, Philips used the new Dior Backstage Line and Face Body Foundation. "This foundation helps obtain even skin and a clear complexion. I like it because it has an ultra-light texture and creates and incredibly natural impression," he shared with me. To complete the makeup portion of the look, he used the Dior Backstage Brow Palette followed by the Dior Diorshow Brow Styler.

The look created was used to complement the innovative fashion designs for the collection. "I created these silver 3D designers, some of which have a rainbow glimmer to replicate the new Dior Logo created by Kim Jones for this new Pre-Fall collection," Philips shared.

As the Dior groomer continued, he applied the actual Dior logo to some of the models just on the nape of the neck. He decided to go with a more abstract approach, so Philips applied individual letters just below the ear, as well as, on the forearms, the back of the hands and even on some of the fingers. "I wanted the look to have more of a metal sheath, as my goal for these futuristic decorations was to create a very 'robotic-chic' effect," Philips added.

The hair was styled by stylist Guido Palau, who gave the models a very structured look. For this look, Palau wanted to create a very futuristic yet cyber-rock effect with controlled volume.

This completes the grooming look for the Dior Men 2019 Pre-Fall Collection. For more information visit Dior today.

Happy Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving is one of the most underrated holidays of the year. At least, in my opinion. And in case you are unaware, Thanksgiving is a holiday held every fourth Thursday of every November. Originally celebrated by the pilgrims in the early 1620s, this holiday really exudes so much to be grateful for. Since 1789, what started as an idea was denied by Thomas Jefferson to make Thanksgiving an official holiday here in the United States. It wasn't until 1863, then president Abraham Lincoln made the day an official holiday. Thanksgiving was celebrated as the last week of Thursday before president Franklin D. Roosevelt took it upon himself to make it the fourth Thursday of the month.

When I was a little girl, my mother use to make a dinner on Thanksgiving Eve. It would consist of gourmet sandwiches, hors d'eouvres, and pie. The family would reminisce about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness over hot chocolate and Christmas music. Most of the time, my mom would get very little sleep because she would be in the kitchen by early am cooking the Thanksgiving meal. Every year she made homemade stuffing (some people refer to it as "dressing" and even "breading") which she would make alone and stuff in the turkey. Then, she would make many sides including classic dishes which are a favorite to this day. The evening would end with an endless amount of cookies and pies, which were always apple or pumpkin themed.

My mom has always been a wonderful woman and I always admired the fact she could take a lot on in spite of working a full time job. Especially when it comes to cooking and baking. Perhaps this is where I got it from. She's in her early 60s now and still manages to do great things in which I respect her immensely. And mom, if you are reading this - I love you.

But the question remains: what am I truly thankful for? 


- First and foremost, I am really thankful to have food to eat. When you look at the world fully, rather than one-dimensionally it is crystal clear that most are unfortunate and do not have food to eat, let alone have the privilege of enjoying a big meal like Thanksgiving with family, friends and loved ones. I am grateful to be able to sit and enjoy good food today with good people.

- As a vegetarian of many years, I can admit that I am in good health. Amazing health actually. Aside from suffering from mild depression (which I really believe is only sporadic) I am both disease-free and drug-free. I do no suffer from any health problem at all. As a 38 year old woman, I am thankful to be in amazing health.

- As an Iranian American woman, I have discovered I am very lucky to be able to use my voice. To me, liberty is something to be truly thankful for. When it comes to the voice, I am very thankful to be able to use mine to and for a higher purpose. And I will continue to express my liberties accordingly, as I have that right. I am so thankful for freedom of speech. "Silence is golden, duct tape is silver, but the voice is platinum," - Sarah Afshar

- A lot of people assume you can live without clothing, but to me, I find it virtually impossible. In fact, the vast majority of status quo society would also share the same mindset in terms of clothing. Especially when we live on a planet that suffers from several problematic climate issues which include global warming. Some people can't afford a warm coat to wear during the winter. This is why I am thankful to have clothes to wear.

- I must say that I am very thankful to have a roof over my head. If you can imagine how many people don't have shelter nor even a place to go, if you have a warm place in which you can call "home" to go to everyday, you should be thankful. I know, I am. That goes without saying, if you have food to eat, clothes to wear and a roof over your head, you are still richer than 80% of the world.

- Life is one thing I am grateful and thankful for. I know this is probably a banal response to the question "What are your thankful for?" however, if you really look at this question, it is only natural to be thankful for life. Right? I am very blessed to live today to write this blog post. There are many who are no longer with us, as there are many who have died young. RIP Morgan. RIP Angela. I am so thankful to be waking up today.

- And with life comes love. I am thankful to have met Sumit. To have found love in my life. Not only is he the love of my life, but he has changed my life for the better. I feel like life, my life has more meaning because of him and with him in my life, I am more motivated and driven than ever. Sumit has changed my perception about quite a few things in which I am both genuinely and wholeheartedly grateful. And Sumit, if you are reading this - I love you.

- When it comes to working, a lot of people are unable to find employment. I am very lucky to have a job. A job that I enjoy. Academic credentials and a strong work ethic can only go so far in this life, as even a Harvard grad may be unable to find employment in this age. I am thankful to have a job.


 Other things that I am thankful for:

- Family and Friends (and people who matter)
- Pets (all animals to be honest, as I love them all)
- The Sun, the Moon and the Stars
- Sleep (and my bed, of course)
- Time
- Steamy Showers (baths too)
- Success and Achievement (and those who encourage it daily)
- Music Music Music
- Electricity
- Safety and Security
- Money in the Bank
- Weekends (Friday nights included)
- Hinduism (as of 2018, I am both Christian and Hindu) 
- Breathing fresh air
- Drinking clean water
- Learning
- Class and Elegance
- Honesty and Respect (the truth will always outweigh a lie and you will get respect if you always tell the truth)
- Vegetarianism
- Plants
- Fresh Fruit
- Bees
- Sunshine, Sunrises and Sunsets
- Rain
- Mountains and Trees
- Oceans, Lakes and Rivers
- The Environment
- Laughter
- Inspiration (because we could use more of it daily)
- The smell of Cardamom
- Gourmet Cheese
- Bandage Dresses
- Mobile Phones
- Anything Beauty (Makeup, Skincare, Hair, etc.)
- The World Wide Web (or an internet connection)
- Independence
- Joy and Happiness (it's all around us)
- Modern Medicine
- Peace of Mind
- Entrepreneurs, Inventors and Visionaries
- Dreams and Imagination
- Writers and Content Producers (and those of you who read us)
- Opinions (because we all have one)
- Memories (and those memory-breeding experiences which create them)
- Vita Coco Coconut Water
- Grocery Stores
- Online Shopping
- The Holidays
- Home Cooked Meals
- Masala Chai Tea (preferably with vanilla almond milk)
- Good News
- Donald Trump as president of the United States
- Anyone who is reading this blog post. Yes - you. Thank you.

On the 22nd of November, I can sit and remember this day forever. As I sip on my moscato writing this blog post, I am can admit that I am so thankful for happiness and very happy today. From my home, to your home - Happy Thanksgiving!

Best High-Tech Beauty gifts

The Legend airbrush system
from Luminess Air.
When one thinks of technology, they often think of innovation, creativity and the most importantly - growth. Without technology, there is no growth and without growth there is no progress. And without progress there is no way to evolve. Everything that has been done can only be recycled so many times before it becomes banal and useless. Technology is all about change, as technology is all about going upward and moving forward. High-tech has changed the evolution of the world, including the world of beauty. The question remains; however, what are the best high-tech beauty gifts this year?

PMD Personal Microderm - Microdermabrasion allows you to remove various layers of dry, dead skin from your face and body. Although you can remove this using a traditional face scrub, this device helps you exfoliate over 700% times more than a regular, standard scrub. If that isn't high-tech, I don't know what is. As a $179, this device is available for only $159 and for $40 more, you can upgrade to the PRO device. (Purchase from Planet Beauty this Black Friday, November 23rd through Cyber Monday, November 26th and save $$$$. Don't miss the many giveaways this week too.)


I want to also add that you should advantage of Planet Beauty's loyalty program this Friday where you can earn points when you shop and save money as a result. 350 points is equivalent to $15.

Whether you are searching for a smarter cleanse that is more powerful and effective or simply looking for that life changing device, this is it. For just $265, this facial and body cleansing device really is SMART.

FOREO LUNA - It isn't everyday that you will find a device that features a deep yet gentle facial cleanse that also provides your skin with anti-aging technology that works to reduce fine lines and prevent them from happening. This little high-tech gem also firms the skin. Normal skin, check. Combination skin, check. Oily skin, check. Sensitive skin, check.

For just $189, this award-winning device is not just one of the greatest high-tech beauty gifts of 2018 but one of the greatest devices of the year.

I have used this incredible device and noticed results immediately, which was surprising as I didn't think it existed. Not only will this device both contour and tone your skin, it will treat acne and acne breakouts too. Perfect for traveling, this is one of the greatest high-tech beauty devices of 2018. For under $200, you can make any beauty lover's year this year.

If you know someone who needs a hair dryer or anyone who just loves their hair, I'm pretty sure they will love this beauty gift also.

If you don't believe me, just take a chance as this product also comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. And for Black Friday (November 23, 2018) you can save 15%.

Using 5 settings, this wand also features an interlock system that makes it easy to change the barrels while prevents your hair device from overheating. Aside from that, it includes heat-resistant gloves and a mat which is quite secure. Great for all hair types, this is a winner.

iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase - Featuring a thread count of 249, this pillowcase uses 100% Cupron copper oxide polyester, which works to restore and renewal your skin while you sleep. As an essential mineral with many benefits, copper is used to stimulate the natural proteins in your skin while protecting your skin's natural acid mantle. Grab yourself a standard size for only $60 or a king size for only $15 more and you are good to go.


Lumee Duo Phone Case - This phone case provides your phone with both front and back facing lights. Featuring studio lighting which includes a half an hour of brightness, this case uses Tapering Light Technology. It also includes a rechargeable battery, so you can use the case again and again and again. Although this is much different compared to other beauty gifts I have featured in this article, I had to share this one with you. I love my Lumee cases and have not used anything, but these on my phone for the last three years.

TRIA Beauty 'SmoothBeauty' Eye Wrinkle Laser - What I love about this terrific TRIA Beauty addition is the fact that it uses the skin's surface to penetrate microscopic zones within the skin, treating and preventing aging. Amazing right? And as a result, this device stimulates collagen and elastin production within the area, promoting and generating new skin cells. This beauty gadget is both safe and effective, as it is FDA-approved. I have used this product sporadically for about a year now and I don't have any crow's feet or fine lines around my eyes. 

LightStim for Acne - There is something that should be said about LED light therapy. It delivers lights the same way plants absorb light or light energy from the sun. When plants grow, they grow because of this. Now imagine your skin. What happens when LED touches your skin? It grows the same way. This device works to regenerate and restore skin proteins and cells. For under $170, this is the best high-tech beauty gift for those looking to prevent, correct and repair acne. It is efficient, effective and the best way to clear up acne. Say goodbye to breakouts, say hello to beautiful skin.
