The Device Every Instagram Addict Needs

Calling all Instagram, Vine, Facebook, Twitter and Photography addicts!

Listen up….

Have you heard of the new Nokia Lumia Icon yet? Have you seen the commercials? You know the ones with the amazing sounds and super clear and crisp pictures? This phone has a gazillion great features (it is a Windows phone after all) but what stands out to me the most is by far the camera. This phone takes the most amazing photos and videos.

With its Full HD video, 20 megapixel camera and 5” full HD screen you are guaranteed to achieve the most perfect shot. The Icon also uses Zeiss optics which helps you take better photos in both light and dark areas. This technology also allows you to zoom in and reframe shots as well.

 

Another amazing feature is there is no glare from sunlight (thanks to Gorilla Glass) with this phone so it is perfect to take to the beach so you can catch up on Kim & Kanye in the most recent “VOGUE” issue. See what everyone’s talking about. #WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE

Remember when you were at that amazing concert last summer and they played your favorite song and you grabbed your phone and took a video only to come home to watch it and realize all you hear is background noise and not your favorite song? Kiss that goodbye with the Icon.

 

If you don’t believe me check out this video to prove it!

 

 

If you are a photographer or just a complete Instagram addict the Lumia Icon is a must!

Celebrate Cyber Monday with DermaLastyl

It’s Cyber Monday and I wanted to tell you about one of my absolute favorite new brands… DermaLastylâ„¢. I’ve been using their line for over a month now and love the results. My personal faves are the face scrub and the moisturizer. It’s a great alternative to Botox as it contains Elastatropin®. DermaLastylâ„¢ is the only skin care product that contains Elastatropin®, real human elastin synthesized in a Biotechnology laboratory. Elastin is a vital part of the skin and provides its smooth, youthful appearance, however elastin is lost as we age and wrinkles and loose skin appear as a result. DermaLastyl supplements elastin in the skin’s surface, reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and helps the onset of new wrinkles.

 

“Like” DermaLastylâ„¢ on Facebook HERE to get the deets on their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. Rumor is the sale will be extended til December 15th, but you have to “Like” them for the details. Also, the first 100 fans will be entered to win a full size product of their choice. Trust me this is a deal you don’t want to miss this season.

 

More about DermaLastyl:

DermaLastyl with Elastatropin has been Clinically Proven by noted anti-aging physician Dr. Steven Lamm in large scale Cinical Trials in New York City. More than 80% of the volunteers in this study experienced a significant reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles over a 12 week period. Dr. Lamm recommends DermaLastyl to all of his patients, both men and women.

 

More about Elastatropin®

Using a complex chain of 600 amino acids in a patented molecular delivery system, our synthesized form of elastin, Elastatropin®
restores elastic properties to the skin. Amino acids enable Elastatropinâ„¢, to penetrate the deepest parts of the epidermis where it converts into elastin and integrates itself with existing elastin and other proteins. This process expands the flexible backbone of the skin, effectively reducing the appearance of existing lines while preventing the onset of new wrinkles and diminishing the signs of aging.

 

The discovery of Elastatropinâ„¢ and its effectiveness in fighting wrinkles introduces a comfortable, casual alternative to traditional
age-defying procedures and ineffective creams and skincare products.

 

Additional Ingredients

 

Matrixyl – 3000® is a combination of matrikines including Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide – 7, Matrixyl 3000® promotes collagen production while stimulating fibroblast cells in the skin, enabling them to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Although fibroblasts never completely lose their ability to create more collagen, the levels dwindle with age and the skin dries
out and wrinkles.

 

In clinical trials, Matrixyl® 3000, a key ingredient in DermaLastyl®, achieved:

 

33% decrease in wrinkle density

23% decrease in the volume of wrinkles

20% decrease in the depth of wrinkles

 

Argireline® is a unique new peptide, called Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, that both reduces existing facial wrinkles and is effective against the development of new wrinkles. Studies with human volunteers show that argireline delivers superior anti-wrinkle results, with the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 17% after 15 days of treatment and up to 27% after 30 days of treatment. This represents a breakthrough in cosmetic science because of its remarkable speed in anti-wrinkle activity.

 

Argireline® also decreases the depth of facial wrinkles caused by the contraction of muscles from facial expressions, especially near
the eyes and on the forehead. Botox® targets the same wrinkles, but Argireline® is safer and less expensive.

 

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a complex carbohydrate that is distributed widely throughout the body in connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. One of the chief components of the Extracellular Matrix, HA contributes significantly to cell proliferation and migration, and is a unique moisturizing agent because of its ability to retain water more effectively than any other natural substance. By using one of the
highest concentration of HA of any skin care product on the market, Dermalastyl provides enhanced moisturizing effects and increases smoothness, softening and elasticity while decreasing facial wrinkles.

 

ProliSelâ„¢ Only Dermalastyl branded products contain ProliSelâ„¢, a formulation that acts as both an antioxidant and anti-carcinogen.

 

ProliSelâ„¢ contains a biologically active form of selenium that is extremely effective in preventing oxidation of the skin. Additionally,
ProliSelâ„¢ contains other skincare ingredients to slow down the process of aging by protecting against the effects of photooxidation and photodamage. Only DermaLastyl contains the unique combination of Oxidation Protective compounds found in ProliSelâ„¢.

Interview with Tracy DiMarco – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Katie – @KateFoxx wrote me and wanted to know is there an end to the feuding in sight between you and Olivia? I’m thinking no.

Tracy – There will never be an end, you know why? Because everyone thinks I’m the bitch but she is the vindictive, spiteful, revengeful person. She is dating my ex-boyfriend now and you guys will see that this season.

Katie – Get out!

Tracy – And she was all about sloppy seconds, but look who’s doing it now.

Katie –   @KateFoxx also wants to know if you could transform any celebrity into a true Jersey girl, who would it be and why?

Tracy – I would transform Katy Perry. She is way too California girl. She needs some teasing, smoky eye. She’s halfway there, but she needs to get on the east coast. Jerseylicious girl not California girl. She’s fun. She would be able to hang with us.

Katie – What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned since your new found fame on “Jerseylicious”?

Tracy – To stay really, really humble because people don’t like when things go to your head. I can’t stand that. There are a couple of people on this show that they can’t fit through the door anymore, ya know what I mean? You really need to thank your fans. You should always respond to their Facebook, Twitter, email anything.

Katie – You are great at that!

Tracy – I am! That’s my biggest thing. I do it every day. I take an hour out of my day every single day and I respond to as many people as I can. Because they are the people that make us anything. We are nobody. We’re not celebrities we’re just people and people follow us. For some reason people think we’re cool enough. I don’t think we are. Maybe we are. You just need to stay really grounded  because otherwise, fans will go away if they see the true celebrity in you.

Katie – Best advice you’ve gotten since being on the show?

Tracy – Respect the fans. They are so excited to meet you. What most people don’t understand is that I’m so excited to meet them. When they come up to me I get nervous. I’m like oh my god, you wanna talk to me? It’s so much fun. I get really excited that they even care. That’s why I like to stay in contact with them because they are the best people in the world.

Katie – You are so super sweet, but there are the Tracy haters. Anytime anyone ever says anything, I’m like seriously she’s like the sweetest girl.

Tracy – I am! I really am!

Katie – What is something your fans would be surprised to know about you?

Tracy – I refuse to speak in the morning until I brush my teeth. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night  and if I wake up and open my eyes, I have to brush my teeth. It’s a really OCD thing.

Katie – Who of all the celebs that you’ve met, would you say is your favorite and who has the best style?

Tracy – The same person for both. Jeannie Mai from the Style Network’s “How Do I Look” its right before our show. She was the nicest person and has the most insane style. Also Simon from Kim Kardashian’s “The Spin Crowd”, he is a doll and Jonathan. I met Kendra, the Kardashian’s, Meryl Streep, a whole bunch of people, but those two are my favorite. They were the most down to earth.

Katie – What changes are we going to see at the Gatsby this season?

Tracy – Well Gayle and Alexa get a little crazy. They fight about everything.

Katie – But she’s here tonight so it must not be too bad.

Tracy – No they are professional. They’re not like me and Olivia. When they want to fight about something, they go hard. I think the staff changes a little bit. Filippo’s more involved now. We have a new girl named Veronica, who’s very sweet. We have a lot more people working on the floor. We have Sammy the receptionist. So we have a lot of brand new people.

Katie – So now Briella… wasn’t Briella friend’s with Olivia last season?

Tracy – Yes.

Katie – But she’s here today without Olivia and the two of you guys seem to be getting along. I’ve been noticing that.

Tracy – Yes.

Katie – Just something I noticed.

Tracy – All I’m gonna say is Briella woke up and realized who her so called friend really was.

Katie – Interesting.

Tracy – You try to be Olivia’s friend for more than six months, it won’t work out. She’s a sociopath.
