Hyatt Regency’s It’s Good Not to Be Home Campaign

Sometimes the best times are spent away from home. Away from your normal routine, your daily stress, so forth. We think a little escape is from your daily grind is an essential need. Whether you’re escaping for business or pleasure, the Hyatt Regency celebrates your escape with their It’s Good Not to Be Home campaign. A campaign that highlights all the reasons it’s good to get away from home and enjoy a few days at the Hyatt Regency. One of the first things we were told to do when we arrived was to exchange our shoes for a pair of plus Hyatt Regency bedroom slippers to be really comfortable during the event……we and several other guests happily complied.

This fall, the Hyatt Regency asked travelers to share their ideas on how to make their business travel experiences and time away from home even better. Now in its second year, “It’s Good Not to Be Home” was created from the very true concept that as much as we like to be home, we humans love and enjoy the freedom to break away from our normal routine while traveling. These innovations, dreamed up by business travelers, will be used for inspiration for future Hyatt Regency experiences and amenities.

Those experiences were debuted at the Hyatt Regency event held at their Jersey City location. The first being Personal trainer Gunnar Peterson’s and James Beard Award-winning pastry chef and Cronut creator Dominique Ansel’s in-room food and fitness routine, encouraging guests to stay fit and eat a balanced meal to be and remain productive during their trip; and the second is Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley pairing up with tech mogul and businesswoman Randi Zuckerberg to create an on-the-go beauty bar where guests can relax, reset, and indulge.

Attendees of the event had a chance to partake in those experiences, previewing what Hyatt Regency guests will soon enjoy as future Hyatt Regency amenities at all their locations. Thanks to this event, we had the wonderful opportunity to meet and speak with Designer Cynthia Rowley, enjoy an almost unlimited supply of delicious Cronuts, and enjoy a little Hyatt Regency swag

The event was incredibly amazing and we really did not want to go home. The Hyatt Regency made it really difficult to leave the event. The bar was flowing, the food was amazing, almost all of our wishes were fulfilled, constant pampering, no dishes had to be done, so why would we want to go home? Take it from us when we say if you’re traveling soon, let the Hyatt Regency show you why it’s good not to be home.

Tweezerman’s Designer Eyebrows

When it comes to eyebrow perfection, Tweezerman’s original, award winning Slant Tweezer is my go-to. Not only do they offer perfectly aligned, hand-filed precision tips, they come in a variety of fun, fabulous prints that can easily coordinate your makeup bag; but be on alert, the bold prints can be discontinued at any given time, so if you see one you love, grab it quickly. Just like the below Roses Slant Tweezer, it’s already gone. The floral-patterned stainless steel beauty also bloomed with colorful silhouettes of Tulips and Daisies

But fear not because Tweezerman has a vast array of quirky, chic and bold designs available, including a brand new designer collection series with Cynthia Rowley (who not too long ago made bandaids oh-so-chic). Tweeze in style with this striking tool that combines Tweezerman’s smart slant with eye-catching prints from the New York fashion designer.

As with all Tweezerman’s Slant Tweezers (regular and mini), the angled tip rests comfortably against your skin for easy, painless plucking while the carefully calculated tension ensures ultimate precision. The stainless steel is durable and easy to clean and the small size makes taking it with you a non-issue.

This collection is available now at Sephora and The Slant Tweezer retails for $25.00, the Mini Slant for $15.00 and the Filemate for $5.00.

HSN launches The Help-Inspired Collections w/ Lela Rose, RJ Graziano & Cynthia Rowley

One of my favorite books and the summer movie I’m most looking forward to is Katheryn Stocket’s The Help, a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship. In fact, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jessica Chastain who plays Celia Foote on a recent red carpet appearance and I asked her about working on this movie. Well, thanks to HSN and three leading designers – Lela Rose, RJ Graziano and Cynthia Rowley – we will soon have access to clothing and accessories influenced by the film’s sixties theme. Inspired by the movie’s charming southern flare, HSN is launching retro accessories with all three designers including floral patterned flats, jeweled brooches, feminine pearls and patent leather purses that will all be available in August.

RJ Graziano updates the classic pearl necklace and earrings with a chic modern twist

Cynthia Rowley created standout accessories like the “Helena” Patent Leather Flap Bag and duo stacked Resin Bangle Bracelet Set featured below that are sure to delight any woman

Lela Rose created a line of floral skirts, a-line dresses, fur shrugs and long evening coats that enliven’s the femininity of the 60’s Southern woman’s ladylike demeanor.

You can shop the collection online August 1st and see all the products available on-air August 5th – 6th. The Help hits theaters August 10th.
