I love carrying big handbags, as I’ve said numerous times, and I always keep my cellphone in my handbag. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you how many cellphone calls I’ve missed because I don’t hear my cell phone ring or see it flashing when I receive a call. That is until I was introduced to an amazing little device called the Trellie. What is this cool new must-have? Trellie is an ultra-simple, handbag accessory that notifies you of an incoming (or missed) call through bright flashing LED lights. No more fumbling through your handbag because you thought you heard your cell phone ring. If your Trellie is flashing, you know you have a call, if it isn’t, you know it’s not your phone. Trellie is also very easy to set up – just pair it with your cellphone via Bluetooth one time and hook it on your bag. Charging is never required as Trellie runs on “AAA” batteries. The Trellie comes in silver or gold and retails for $49.99 on http://trellie.com/shop/.

Priyanka Chopra Becomes the New Face of GUESS

Bollywood Icon, Priyanka Chopra Becomes the New Face of GUESS

GUESS unveils their Holiday 2013 advertising campaign featuring the multiple award-winning, Bollywood icon, Priyanka Chopra. Priyanka, former Miss World 2000, actress, and recording artist, is one of the most recognized and celebrated Indian film actresses (you can currently hear her as the voice of Ishani, the reigning Pan-Asian champion from India in Disney Animation Studios’s film Planes). In the campaign, Priyanka portrays a movie star at home in an elegant Mediterranean villa wearing some of the season’s most stand-out dresses.
Priyanka Chopra Becomes the New Face of GUESS

Guided by Paul Marciano, Creative Director for GUESS?, Inc., and shot by former GUESS collaborator and musician, Bryan Adams, the campaign captures Priyanka’s free-spirited glamour in a collection of signature black and white photographs. “Priyanka’s confidence, strength, and sensuality reflect the qualities I always look for in a model,” said Marciano. “Priyanka reminds me of the young Sophia Loren and the top actresses of the 1950s. With the Indian movie industry exploding on a global stage, and GUESS having a brand presence in 87 countries, we could not have found a better global brand ambassador. Choosing Priyanka reinforces our celebration of multi-talented, dynamic and accomplished women.”

The campaign is stunningly beautiful. Looking at the images, I can’t help but think she’s channeling Brigitte Bardot or Sophia Loren. It’s great to see GUESS move from their typical “blond bombshell” to a “brown bombshell”. I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Priyanka (see video interview below) at the GUESS and Marciano Spring 2014 Press Preview (she graciously posed me for in the floral printed dress she’s wearing in one of the campaign photos). Although she’s represented many popular brands such as Pepsi, Nokia, Garnier, etc, GUESS is the first US fashion label she’s worked with.

“For as long as I can remember, GUESS has been at the epicenter of fashion for women. I am honored to be face of the GUESS brand and this iconic holiday campaign. GUESS is aspirational, inspirational and so relatable to women from across the world and I think this is a remarkable opportunity which in its own way, erases boundaries and makes the world a smaller place. When you look good, you feel great…and to me, that’s what Paul Marciano captured in these pictures and what GUESS is all about.”

Shine Bright Like a Forever Brilliant Moissanite

They say “a diamond is forever” but paying for it shouldn’t have to be. What if you can get the beauty, brilliance and of a diamond without the lifetime of paying. That is the beauty of the Forever Brilliant Moissanite gemstone, an enhanced round by Charles and Colvard that is created through a thermal growing process exclusive to the company. It’s process of creation also makes Moissanite an environmentally friendly gemstone. Unlike diamonds, which are extracted from the earth, no harm is done to our planet to cultivate Moissanite.

The Forever Brilliant gemstone is up to four times whiter than traditional Moissanite, making it’s refraction utterly brilliant and 10% more brilliant than a diamond. And at one-tenth the cost of a diamond, you get the most brilliant stone for any budget. Don’t mistake the Forever Brilliant Moissanite for a diamond substitute, it is its own jewel, a beautiful combination of art and science that will rival its competition.

Several other media outlets were invited to test our skills and take the Forever Brilliant Challenge and choose which stone out of six was the diamond and which were the Moissanite. Needless to say NOT one of us selected the diamond, proving that this stunning stone exceeds all expectations in the five C’s.
