The New Metaphor by Sears

Monday, November 17, 2014

Loving the new look of the New Metaphor Collection at Sears. You may remember seeing an Instagram post or my mention at the InStyle Celebrate in Style event recently. At the event, they showed off pieces from their collection so we were able to see them all close up. I feel as though their look has become a lot trendier with better quality over the years. The looks are great for the modern woman, especially for the busy New Yorker. I mean, who really wants to carry an extra bag while commuting? It's great that some of these pieces can take you easily from day to night (so convenient!), and all it really takes is a swipe of lipstick, change of shoes, or swapping out a piece of the look.Their new collection also includes amazing accessories, handbags, and shoes. I personally have my eye on their color block jacket - so perfect for the colder seasons. They also have this fit and flare lace dress, which would be so pretty for the holidays.

In this post, I'm wearing their Tweed & Faux Leather Moto jacket paired with a super comfortable but so chic elastic waist pants. At work, I'm used to either wearing a dress/skirt or just jeans, since I do work in a pretty casual environment. That, and it's also hard finding work petite pants that fit but don't look too uptight for our office. These pants, in this wine color (which also comes in black), is great for office attire. It has roomy pockets without the big bulges. 

Of course, I'm absolutely loving the jacket and can definitely see myself wearing this a lot. The weather has been really on and off lately, and this is warm without being too bulky. It's a versatile jacket that can complete your look paired with pants, jeans, and even a fun dress. You can even throw on some sneakers for a sporty touch.

Esquire Mini

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

This Esquire Mini by Harmon/Kardon is slim, has a kickstand, and projects amazing sound. While I still love my JBL speaker, this Esquire Mini is definitely better for traveling with how thin and light it is. It's easy to control the volume, and is stable enough to stand on its own. Like my JPL speaker, it can synch via Bluetooth, which makes it to play without having to keep your phone or music player physically connected to it. So convenient for parties and little get togethers, or even rocking out at home. I really like how sleek it looks - and can suit either men or women. With the holidays approaching, this is a great gift item!

Veet's Infini Silk

Monday, November 10, 2014

I received the Veet Infini’ Silk, awhile ago, and I waited to post in order to take some time to see some results. It allows you to treat your skin in the comfort of your own home, with the same IPL hair removal (intense pulse light) technology found in clinics and salons.

It’s so easy to use, and it doesn’t hurt at all. I hear stories from friends who get lasered at salons, where they feel a range from a tiny sting to “worse than waxing”. With that said, I was anticipating some sort of pain, but was certainly surprised. It feels warm, but no pain at all.

The treatments are fairly easy, and are great for busy lifestyles. The first 4 treatments are to be done 2 weeks apart, treatments 5-7 are 4 weeks apart and anything after is to be treated as needed.

Both the Infini Silk and the Infini Silk Pro, were lightweight and I personally liked the Pro better, just because it was easier with the handle. It also features an exchangeable cartridge which is a nice option for sharing between users. (More bang for your buck!)

The Infini Silk retails at $249, and the Pro retails for $299 with one free replacement cartridge.

You Haunt Me

These babies could not have come in at a better time. The weather has been a bit extreme going from beautiful to harsh winds and stormy. Looks like another freezing winter for us. There are a lot of tech gloves out there, although, those are usually at the fingertips only, which may make it hard to use if your gloves are not fitted properly. My fingers are skinny and sometimes my gloves bunch up at the tips with the extra material - so it's easier without them.

What I love about these, is that you can use ANY part of the glove for touch screen devices. It's so practical and so much more convenient to use. It's made out of wool blend with lining, and keeps your hands warm. Each pair also has hidden magnets so they can always be paired together when stored, making it easy to find together.

This pair shown is the Cozy, but they also offer many options for both men & women, including leather tech gloves!
