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!

Beauty, Bullying, Real Housewives of OC Season 8, Family and More with Heather Dubrow – PART 2

PART 2 with Heather Dubrow

Quick 5

ME: Fave junk food treat

HEATHER: Twizzlers (We both agreed Twizzlers beat out Red Vines hands down. We even chatted about biting off the ends of the Twizzlers and using them as straws. You know you’ve done it too.)

ME: All time fave movie

HEATHER: There’s so many. Aside from all the major classics like “The Wizard of Oz”. “Flashdance”, “Ice Castles” any of those girlie, young performance, dance, ice skating, singing type of films.

ME: Fave musical theater song because I know you sing. I was actually a theater major in college.

HEATHER: Really? Where did you go?

ME: I went to Rider in New Jersey. (We chatted briefly about how I ended up not pursuing anything with my theatre degree.)

HEATHER: This is hard.

ME: Ok if you had to go into an audition tomorrow and sing something what would it be?

HEATHER: Trying to think of my old audition songs. I do love “I Don’t Know How To Love Him” from Jesus Christ Superstar.

ME: That’s a good one.

HEATHER: I’d probably audition with something from Les Mis.

ME: I love Les Mis too.

ME: Fave store or brand

HEATHER: I always say Chanel because I love Chanel. But I feel their prices are so out of control right now I’m almost turned off. I’m going to say Valentino.

ME: Fave magazine

HEATHER: I like a bunch of them. I’m gonna say Vogue.

 

ME: Do you do your own social media?

HEATHER: Yes

ME: What social media site do you love the most? Twitter maybe?

HEATHER: I do like Twitter. I don’t understand Facebook at all. (We then chatted about different media platforms and different sites to help manage accounts.)

 

HEATHER: The word bullying. Are you on Twitter? Do you follow me on Twitter?

ME: I do!

HEATHER: So you’ve seen all the bullying talk with Alexis because of what happened in Costa Rica. How do you feel about that?

ME: I think she’s ridiculous.

HEATHER: Ok good, ok so you understand. This is what I have to say about it. It is so not appropriate in this context; it’s not applicable in this context to use the word bullying. That’s an incredibly serious statement. It’s a serious issue and to make light of it like that I just think it’s crazy. We are all cognizant that we are on the show to show our relationships and be vocal about our opinions of the other cast members. If you have filters, you have to take those filters out. This is what the show is about. It’s allowing the audience to get into our brain and say what they want to say and hear what they want to hear. The realness of it. This is Alexis’s 3rd season, she’s very aware. She’s very aware of how it works. I think it’s really easy when things get turned on you and it makes you uncomfortable and it hits too close to home to run to your corner and cry victim. But I don’t think it’s fair and I think it’s an easy out.

ME: I agree.

HEATHER: She and I had gone back and forth and back and forth on Twitter. I’m tired of the name calling and whatever. I actually have no ill feelings towards her. We had some very nice times together. I think it’s unfortunate how things happen. We had a really nice conversation after the reunion in the parking lot. We hugged and sort of apologized to each other for the misconceptions and some issues and whatever. We hugged. We texted each other. So I thought, ok great, maybe not best friends but we can accept each other. But then 2 days later she gave a really rude interview about me in the press and I thought ok well there you go.

ME: I think she’s just unhappy with herself and that’s the big problem.

HEATHER: Yea know what you could be right. As far as I’m concerned, her chapter’s closed. I wish her and her family well. I have no ill feelings towards them.  She’s not a bad person. I hope she’s happy in her life.
