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. And if you become a platinum member, you can say an additional 20% off the sale price plus you will earn 1.5 points for every dollar spent and you will receive 750 points just for joining. And it is free shipping all over the United States.

Clarisonic SMART Profile - Not only will this high-tech beauty gem remove your makeup over 11 times better than the traditional hand wash method, but it removes various environmental stressors such as pollution, etc. 30 times better than the same method. Can you believe it? This system features four speeds and reads everything including the brush heads you place with it. 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.

Luminess Legend Airbrush System - This airbrush system works generously to prevent and eliminate cross contamination. It is also compact and fits in most handbags. For under $250, this high-tech airbrush system provides you with easy, quick and most importantly, long-lasting application while delivering real results. This entire set has everything you need to put your best face forward. This is truly a legend.

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 under $200, this is a hybrid in it's own right and is truly amazing for every skin type. Right now you can save 30% on this device.

The Conture - When it comes to beauty-forward essentials, this revolutionary device works to stimulate your skin by gently lifting and releasing target skin areas using an unique vacuum system. As a pain-free and safe beauty tool, you can expect real results. Great for both the face and the neck. Available for just $199, the Conture launched several years ago and still remains to be a real tried and true gem in the world of beauty.


DermaFlash 2.0 - Utilizing sonic technology, the DermaFlash proves why it should be on your Christmas List this year. Whether you have normal skin, dry skin, oily skin, combination skin and even sensitive skin; this device will work to exfoliate your skin by removing the dead skin cells from beneath the surface. Great for those who suffer from uneven skin tone and depigmentation, it will also remove any excess facial hair (or "peach fuzz") too. 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.

NuFace Mini Toning Device - Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this FDA-approved device delivers real results within just a week. 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.

Red Carpet Manicure LED Pro 45 Light - This light was designed to dry virtually every nail polish and cure Red Carpet Manicure's special LED polish in less than one minute. And the best part is, your manicure will last up to two weeks. Prep, care, color, and finish. For only $50, you can make a nail lover's year this year.

T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer - Implementing and executing IonAir technology, this digitally controlled gem offers five heats with two speed settings, allowing your hair to dry effectively without destroying it. It also features an actual volume control switch which is essential for achieving a real, tried and true salon look. I have tried many different hair dryers this year, but always find myself loving the blow outs this one creates. 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.

GHD Platinum+Professional Styler - What I love most about this styler is the fact that it works to straighten and smooth your hair without pulling your hair. For under $250, this flat iron features an amazing hinge, advanced floating plates, an incredible heat protector, an universal voltage and automatic shut off along with a sturdy swivel cord making one of the first of it's kind and one of the best high-tech beauty gifts right now. The GHD Platinum Styler is also pretty bank too.


TRIA Beauty Hair Removal 4X Laser - This FDA-approved device really proves that you don't have to spend thousands on hair removal treatments, when you can remove hair both effectively and efficiently in the comfort of your own home. Yes, this device is powered by the same technology (Diode) which is used often in many clinics. 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%. In fact, I think this deal is right now so it get it before it is gone. You won't be disappointed.

FOREO ISSA mini 2 - Made from durable silicone, this toothbrush is as innovative as it gets. Using Sonic Pulse technology, the ISSA mini will not only effectively clean your teeth, but protect your teeth too. On top of that, you use your phone to charge it. Available in 4 fun colors, this toothbrush is a new approach to dental care. For under $120 (and currently on sale for under $100) this toothbrush is great for children, teens and adults and the perfect high-tech gift for every beauty lover in your life.

Baby Quasar Pure Rayz - LEDs emit natural wavelengths of light which work to stimulate your skin's cells. As an FDA-cleared device that is compact, this is one of the best ways to reduce wrinkles. Great for every skin type and skin tone, this award-winning device uses 40 LEDS along with four distinct wavelengths of light, which work for even penetration. On top of that, you are getting the highest power of output which means you are getting a high level of collagen production. For under $250, you can expect to notice results within a few weeks.

Juverest The Sleep Wrinkle Pillow - As one of the newest ways to deal with facial wrinkling, this pillow works to minimize facial contact with the pillow surface. In short, this prevents wrinkles from happening. Made from 100% polyurethane-foam, this is very soft and comfortable. For under $160, this pillow not only works to prevent and repair sleep wrinkles, it changes your entire sleep regimen which reduces further damage. And as it does this, corrects both neck and back alignment. What makes this pillow high-tech? This pillow helps maintain a youthful appearance.


Nutra Luxe MD Nutrastim Pro Hair Laser Comb - What I found fascinating about this handheld, cordless high-tech beauty device is the fact that it utilizes laser light to stimulate hair growth. And although it is considered low level, it has proved to treat those individuals who suffer from acute hair loss including those who suffer from moderate alopecia. The guarantee is real and if you are dissatisfied you can send the device back for a refund. But trust me, this works. Available now for $279, you can use code: Save20 to save money on this wonderful FDA-approved gem just in time for the holidays.

Beauty Bioscience GloPro - What do you get when tiny microneedles gently separate the skin's and create imperceptible micro-channels? This device. This beauty gadget also uses the skin's natural regeneration response to create new cells. Kind of like how a plant uses light via photosynthesis with an amplified effect. Offering four unique tips, this is the ultimate game changer in beauty. #Glogetter approved.

Sarah Potempa Beachwaver Pro - Created by celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa, this high-tech hair gem leaves a lot to desire. In fact, what makes this curling iron so fabulous goes beyond it's beveled design and tourmaline infused with gold powder to protect your hair. It rotates automatically and will rotate left and right, depending on the direction you are going and side you are curling. For under $200, this rotating curling iron is truly innovative and guides you into true hair glamour and greatness.


LumaRx Full Body Hair Removal Device - Utilizing Professional Intense Pulsed Light (or IPL) technology, this device offers five energy levels which work to customize your treatments.

So, you can use this product on your legs, your arms, and even your face too. Using ComfortFilter technology, this product is safe to use. For under $450, this high-tech beauty gadget is a real, tried and true steal.

Kathy Ireland Skincare by ReVive Anti-Aging Light Therapy - After using this product you will notice that your skin's texture and tone will improve dramatically, as will your actual skin. Skin will appear more radiant as the collagen and elastin will be stimulated. This is one of the most natural yet effective ways to treat an array of skin issues. This FDA-cleared light therapy device features a portable device for under $50, a clinical device for under $170, and full-face beauty panel for under $400, making it one of the most effective high-tech additions to the beauty world right now.

CandyLipz Lip Pump - Featuring four unique models, this device is for every lip under the sun. Whether you have thin lips or full lips, this device works efficiently and effectively to plump and lift your lips. Studies have been conducted and show that lips increased almost 40% from their original lip size. The results are very much real, making the CandyLipz lip pump one of the best high-tech beauty gifts there is. For under $70, you will not find another device as impressive as this one for the price point. And for a limited-time only, if you purchase one device, you will get one free. Yes! With Black Friday a few days ago and Cyber Monday only a week away, the time is now to take advantage of these amazing incentives.

T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand - For $270, this styling wand features three unique barrels that are powered by tourmaline and infrared technology which work to prevent heat damage. 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.

Sultra 'The Bombshell' Curling Iron - Whether you have ultra-thick hair or ultra-thin hair, dry or damaged hair, than this hair device is for you. Using ThermaTru Ceramic technology, this curling iron works to prevent your hair from heat damage. Great for those with color treated tresses, this spectacular Sultra addition also includes auto shut off features too. For only $130, this curling iron is one of the best high-tech hair gifts you can buy this year.

When it comes to cutting edge technology, these beauty essentials definitely prove why they are the best gifts to give this holiday season. Whether you are a high-tech beauty junkie like me or know someone who enjoys an unique beauty gift, these options are perfect. Happy Holidays!

My latest Nordstrom Haul

So today I decided to shop at Nordstrom. As much as I wanted to look at other things in the store, I found myself gravitating towards the active wear (or athletic wear) section, as I noticed they were having a great sale. 

Needless to say I found quite a few things that I liked today and somethings I truly love. 

I found an Asics tank top, a Nike tank top, another cute tank top by Zella and a nice shirt by Z for Zella. 

I have to admit, I was enamored by the great selection they had of leggings, yoga pants and capris hence why I bought quite a few of those too. I never realized how many great styles. The Zella and Z for Zella brand had quite a few that really sparked my interest. I also bought a few things from Nike. 

Additionally I made another purchase and bought two hoodie + capri sweat sets from Calvin Klein. I had originally purchased one along time ago at Ross for probably half price; however, I loved it so much when I saw it at Nordstrom for about 40% more, I still bought it. 

I looked at the shoes and found nothing of interest. I have several pairs of Asics which I love. There were many people near the shoes, so I didn't really feel compelled to walk over to them. Besides, I like to buy shoes online more so than in-store. 

Anyways, this is today's shopping haul. I definitely want to go back soon. If you are searching for great workout clothes, Nordstrom has a fantastic selection.

5 Reasons to Shop at FragranceNET

Located in the heart of Deer Park, NY, FragranceNET provides you with an extensive selection of genuine brands at only the lowest prices. With everything from fragrances, skincare, candles, aromatherapy, and more; it is one of my favorite places to shop. So, what are 5 reasons to shop at FragranceNET?

1. Great Value. Recently when browsing FragranceNET.com, I discovered a Viva La Juicy fragrance set that I have had my eyes on. The set includes a 3.4 oz of Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy eau de parfum, a 4.2 oz body lotion of the amazing fragrance, and a 4.2 oz shower gel. Normally this would cost about $115 if I were to purchase this elsewhere; however, I was able to find this amazing product for the bargain price of $63.19. How is that for great value?

2. Extensive Selection. Not only does FragranceNET offer one of the best selections you will ever find on the world wide web of fragrances, they also offer skincare, makeup, hair care, aromatherapy, and candles. Yes, candles. I was about to find a Northern Lights Candle in Warm Cinnamon Buns for only $12.50. It is literally the best scented candle I have ever smelled.

3. Discontinued Items. I have been searching for Vera Wang's Princess Night for the longest time. As a huge fan of this particular perfume, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised to find it here. When purchasing the 3.4 oz eau de parfum elsewhere, you can be expected to pay $75, if not more. I was able to get this perfume for only $48.19. How cool is that?

4. Great Customer Service. A business with bad customer service is like a blue sky without sunshine. It's extremely depressing and can really hurt a business. Luckily, you will not find bad customer service at FragranceNET because it just doesn't exist. Not only is the staff prompt, but they always manage to help you no matter what problematic issue you are enduring. You have to love that.

5. Product Guarantee. When you shop here, you can be expected to find only original and authentic products. In fact, if you read FragranceNET's FAQ section on their website, they promise you only genuine products. They do NOT carry knock-offs or imitations.

FragranceNET also offers free shipping on every order of any size, which I absolutely love. For more information about FragranceNET, please visit FragranceNET today.

January 2016: Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale Haul

 Recently, me and my amazing boyfriend Joe went shopping. About a week ago, we found ourselves at one of my favorite stores, Victoria's Secret. Victoria's Secret started their semi-annual sale early last week both online and in-store. I grabbed the Hottie Halter swimsuit in four different colors along with matching bottoms. The Hottie Halter tops were originally $54.50-$64.50 and I was able to get them for $19.99 each with an additional $3.99 savings, bringing down the price to $15.99. The Strappy Bottom was originally $24.50 each and I was able to get it for only $7.99. I was also able to get an additional $1.59 savings. So, the price was brought down to $6.39. The price of the Skimpy Bottom was originally $22.50 and I was able to get it for the bargain price of $7.99. Instead of paying $79-$89 for a bikini, only $22-$23 per set. Talk about an amazing savings.
 
Aside from those four bikini sets, I was able to find another bikini along with a Very Sexy bra and panty set that was marked down. I had my eyes set on this particular bra and after much contemplation, it made it's away into my shopping bag. The bra was only $31.99. Originally almost $60. The panties were on sale for $5.99. The original price is $18.50. The mesh bikini was another bargain find during the semi-annual sale, as I was able to get it for $9.99 for the top $4.99 for an addition savings of $1.99 and $.99, making the price only $11.98. The original price was over $40.
 
The Lace Halter Babydoll was not on sale, at least not at the time. These two colors caught my attention more so than the other colors, but I do love them. I made the mistake of getting a small which fits around, but does not fit the bust area. If you are a DD or DDD, you may want to think of getting a bigger size. I should have got a medium. The best time to get started shopping is now, as the semi-annual sale is one of the best times to shop. As Victoria's Secret makes room for their new inventory, they offer an array of amazing savings and incentives both online and in-store. #VSSemiAnnualSale

Victoria's Secret: Rose Foil + Neon Hot Pink

My amazing boyfriend Joe goes above and beyond when it comes to surprising me with gifts. Especially those little gems from one of my favorite stores, Victoria's Secret. I was only a child when I first discovered Victoria's Secret and back then, the brand was different. And although it has always been a great brand, it has evolved immensely since then.

Everything is intensified now. Back then, they had an array of beautiful styles, but it wasn't original let alone different than what you could find in your nearest department store. Now, they have unique things that you cannot find other places that in short, stand out.
 
The Very Sexy in the Rose Foil (which you can find here) and in the Neon Hot Pink (which you can grab here) are stunning. The colors really embody romance at it's finest and are the perfect dynamic duo to wear during the holidays, including Valentine's Day which is approaching us soon. My boo said he loved these colors hence why he got them for me for Christmas.
 
Remember, today is the start of their semi-annual sale online so you can expect to save up to 60% off, sometimes more. The deals are endless and this is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of them considering the brand is offering free shipping when you spend $50 on clothing or $100 or more on your entire purchase. To get started shopping at Victoria's Secret, just click here.

Victoria's Secret: Ivory Embellished

 
As many of you already know, I love shopping at Victoria's Secret. I love everything from the bra and panty sets to the underwear (bikini, cheekini, brief, hipster, thong, G-string, etc.) to the pajamas and lounge wear to even their beauty products including their fragrances. Recently, I have also garnered a liking towards their swimwear along with their athletic (or sport line). Last year, I was very proud of my bikini purchase, as earlier this year I was very proud of my sports bra and matching pant purchase, so of course when my boo asked me what I wanted for Christmas, one of the first things I said to him was "Victoria's Secret".

I don't know a single woman who would turn down Victoria's Secret, as the brand has evolved and offers an extensive selection of bras, panties, lingerie, sleep, beauty, swim, sport and clothing. They also offer and individual PINK line and an array of ongoing clearance. Every time I go into a store or look at the official website, I am like a kid in a candy store.

One of my very first choices was the Very Sexy push-up in Ivory Embellished. The matching thong of course is gorgeous too. Included with the purchase was this beautiful yet quite chic and simple backpack kind of bag. I really enjoy Victoria's Secret's gift with purchases (or GWPs) because they offer a great selection quite often. I am so happy I grabbed this bra and panty set while I did, as I looked on the website today and it is sold out. I am unsure if they are still offering it for sale or if you have to shop via catalog to find it or if they are going to include it in their semi-annual sale which started at 3 am this morning on the website.

If you are looking to shop at Victoria's Secret, I suggest heading to the official website today, as they just started their semi-annual sale this morning. You can save a lot of money. If you make any clothing purchases of $50 or more, you can receive free shipping. And if you spend $100 or more, you can receive free shipping on your purchases too. I am unsure when the semi-annual starts offline (or in-store) but I am sure you can ask one of the representatives on the site, as they offer online chat. You can also tweet them @VictoriasSecret and ask them when it starts in-store.

Giant Plush Zebra by Melissa & Doug

My amazing boo Joe really went above and beyond this holiday season. As a man who is naturally wonderful and full of surprises, he surprised me this Christmas with this huge zebra from Melissa & Doug. As I am a huge lover of Nordstrom, we both saw this zebra there and of course, Joe knew how much I loved it so it was one of quite a few Christmas gifts to me from him this year.
 
They have an extensive selection of plush toys that are great for all ages. I actually just discovered this cheetah the other day, although I have to admit, I am a huge zebra fan so of course that is what made me gravitate towards the zebra more so.
 
Melissa & Doug also offers an array of other tools such as games and even personalized play. I know when I have children, I will definitely be buying quite a few things from this amazing toy brand.

The zebra is available now at Nordstrom for about $100. Since they are having their annual after Christmas sale, I am sure it has been marked down. To grab it before it's gone, just click here now.

Victoria's Secret: Love Red Lace with Nude Illusion

There is something that should be said about the color red and the holidays. In fact, I think the two go together. A lot like coffee and mornings and mood swings and menstrual cycles. Ok, well, maybe that isn't the best analogy when describing a Victoria's Secret bra and panty set that I purchased, but I think you kind of get the idea.
 
This is a new addition to the Very Sexy line. This is the new Satin & Lace push up bra. The Very Sexy push up bra in Love Red Lace with Nude Illusion (GP4). I really love the color because it's quite intense and vibrant yet isn't too cool or warm. Almost neutral, I want to say.
 
What attracted me to this particular bra and panty set was it's vintage yet modernized appeal. The mesh cups with the lace really caught my attention. I also love the nude illusion and the fact that it is red. Red is one of those amazing shades that just really embraces romance. It's a lot sexier in person than it is in the image, which is so very sexy.


Would I recommend this color? Yes. Would I recommend this style? Absolutely. I cannot wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday and of course the days after, so I can use my Victoria's Secret Rewards cards. You are all the best and I hope you are having a wonderful day. Happy Holidays!

Victoria's Secret: Love Red Lace with Pirouette Pink Lace

Victoria's Secret doesn't even have to have a sale and yet I find myself there searching for my next shopping victim. What more can I say about Victoria's Secret? They offer some of the best bra and panty sets along with other great essentials including beauty essentials.  They also offer great customer service too.
 
Recently, I was able to grab the Dream Angels push up in Love Red Lace with Pirouette Pink Lace (HE0) along with the panties to match. I believe the color in collaboration with the style really embodies the holiday season in the most festive yet sensual way possible. The Love Red is more of a cool red than a warm red, yet is a true red shade. 
 
Just like my recent purchases (thank you to my amazing boyfriend Joe) the style, the color, and the gorgeous design is what caught my attention and basically lured me in to choosing this one over some of their other styles. Also, like the previous it's actually prettier in person. So far, I am loving Very Sexy and Dream Angels the best in terms of quality, style, and color over any of the lines within the Victoria's Secret brand.

 I also managed to grab a pair of their comfortable slippers for only $25 and their Coconut Milk Body Oil for under $10. I also grabbed the body butter which was under $10, but is backordered and if I remember correctly should ship soon (I will have to look into it).
 
Would I recommend this color? Yes. Would I recommend this style? Absolutely. Happy Holidays!
