How many times have you said to yourself, “I have the next big idea!”? Well, now is your chance to turn your light-bulb moment into reality. Clinique has partnered with TED to launch a global campaign in search of the next “smart” idea and no idea is too big or too small! The goal is to engage, empower and encourage women all over the world to share their intelligence, ambition and creativity.
As some of you may remember, last year Casio G-Shock launched the S Series, a collection for women. Prior to that G-Shock was
for men unisex, and Baby-G was the solo women’s line. This season, Casio has taken the young and rugged nature of the G-SHOCK brand and sassed up the S Series by partnering with Victoria Secret angel Josephine Skriver to debut the newest summer launches. Utilizing their 30 plus years of expertise in structural durability and technical functionality, the G-Shock S Series was designed to create a fashion accessory piece for the modern day woman who embraces life and its challenges.
I know what you’re thinking, how can anything about online dating be fun. And I get it, the dating world — especially for my fellow sista’s in NYC is particularly challenging. But here’s the deal, last week I attended the relaunch event for the Swoon App and in a sea of online dating services this is definitely one that stands out.
Molly Messenger, product head manager for the app, explained it well when saying, “there are no long forms to fill out (who reads those anyway?). It’s an iPhone app that is linked to your Facebook profile. Don’t worry it doesn’t post anything on your wall. The app just pulls you pictures so you have a few decent ones to start.”
Remember that site, “hot or not?”, it’s like that with some Pandora like algorithms that basically tries to find men based on your preferences, interests and age range. Here’s how it works, the app links to your Facebook profile and then pulls up friends of your friends pictures, interests, age as well as displays your mutual friends and you either swipe ‘left’ if you’re interested, ‘right’ if you’re not. Either way, it’s completely anonymous and in no way will that person find out you’ve reviewed their profile (nor will your mutual friends) unless they have reviewed yours to and you’ve both swiped accordingly as interested. From there you can go on a date and live happily ever after and then cancel your account. Did I mention the app is free?
The video says it all…
Notable guests, at the event included that ’70s Show actor Wilmer Valderama, Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Albie Manzo and socialite Tinsley Mortimer. Naturally my swoon date match was Wilmer — or at least I like to think so if we weren’t both happily taken.
What are you waiting for, go swoon and send me a wedding invite!
Fashionistas, rejoice! On July 16th, PickN’Tell was launched as an exciting way to make your shopping experience more interactive. Whether you’re perusing the streets of Soho, or in the comfort of your own home, you can use this app to shop, find the best deals, create and share wish lists, or give and receive feedback on that cute new outfit you recently saw in store.
How it works: retail stores can install interactive mirrors with unique codes that, when connected with a smart phone, allow shoppers to take pictures of themselves in an outfit and forward it to their friends via text or Facebook from the mirror itself. For the stores that don’t have the mirror installed, the app allows you to use your camera phone to upload pictures and videos directly to the main site and get instant feedback from your PickN’Tell network!
For more information visit the PickN’Tell website, and download the app for free on your smart phone. Happy shopping!
