Built-in Wifi Cameras Best Buy

Built-in Wifi Cameras allow you to SHARE with ease!

I have a camera with built-in Wifi (the Samsung Galaxy featured below). There is never a single person that I show my camera to, that doesn’t want one. Everyone just instantly understands how great it is to have a connected camera! I take a photo with a beautiful high quaility camera (ie. no more crappy cell phone photos) and then link right up to Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. all from my camera.

3 Built-in Wifi Camera Selections from Best Buy

Best Buy is the ultimate destination for the latest cameras and camcorders to capture your high-stakes memories. These three cameras from Nikon, Sony and Samsung, all come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi so you can share amazing photos with ease. Upgrade your camera in time to capture precious holiday memories.

$50 Yves Saint Laurent Fashion Book Giveaway

[ 10 ] December 20, 2014 |

Yves Saint Laurent by Roxanne Lowitt

Yves Saint Laurent

 

YVES SAINT LAURENT

YVES SAINT LAURENT ($50.00 hardcover, 9780500517604) is a dazzling portrait of the designer and his world of fashion over the last 25 years of his career by legendary backstage fashion photography pioneer Roxanne Lowit.

I have not received this book yet as it has a release date of Nov. 4, 2014. The subject intrigued me because he defined the 1970s in terms of cool cutting edge fashion. An accomplishment I particularly admired is that he:

He revolutionized women’s evening wear when he introduced le smoking, a woman’s tuxedo, and made couture accessible to a younger generation. ~ From Thames & Hudson website

Chocolate Bowls ! Repurpose your Holiday Dessert Leftovers

[ 34 ] December 18, 2014 |

Chocolate bowls made with balloons gives a twist to holiday dessert leftovers

This ” Chocolate Bowls! Repurpose your Holiday Dessert ” post is in conjunction with a Vibrant Influencer network campaign for Marie Callender’s. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with Marie Callender’s and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.

How to Make Chocolate Bowls Chocolate Cups

Ahhh Christtmas. It’s that wonderful time of year when every thought turns to wonderful special desserts. My mother and grandma always made or served the best of everything. Whether grandma made or store bought, each treat laid out was a nod to a family tradition or something new and fun!

Now all the holidays are hosted at my house. I love to serve pies and cakes during the holidays! Who doesn’t? Sometimes I bake, sometimes to provide myself some stress relief I serve Marie Callender’s pies and cakes. I get homemade goodness and variety with Marie Callender’s.

Chocolate Bowls Repurpose your Holiday Dessert Leftovers

Marie Callender’s has wonderful individual carrot cakes, pecan pies, cream pies like key lime and chocolate satin, fruit pies like the hard-to-find razzleberry or apple crumb cobbler, and premium pies such as caramel apple pie. Mmmmmm!

Create a dessert buffet with your holiday leftovers and chocolate bowls

For Christmas luncheon, I serve pies and cakes warm with ice cream and whip cream. However, later on in the evening, I take a different approach. I serve the same desserts from lunch, but I make a dessert buffet. I make chocolate bowls and let everyone choose different selections of desserts. They pile them in small portions into the chocolate bowl and have a new experience then they had at lunch time. With the huge variety of Marie Callender’s desserts, you can’t go wrong with this approach.

How to make chocolate bowls or chocolate cups for your leftover desserts

How to Make Chocolate Bowls Chocolate Cups

  1.  Blow up balloons to the size of chocolate bowl or chocolate cup that you want to achieve.
  2. Coat each balloon with shortening to keep the chocolate from sticking.
  3. Melt chocolate wafers as directed in a bowl that will allow you to coat balloons to proper depth. Spread out wax paper or parchment paper and place a small circle of melted chocolate as the base.
  4. Quickly dip balloons in melted chocolate and place on circles.
  5. Freeze chocolate dipped balloons for 30 minutes to help the chocolate set and balloon to pull away from chocolate. Remove chocolate covered balloons from fridge. Pop balloon and peel away from chocolate bowl.
  6. Serve leftover desserts in chocolate bowls or chocolate cups.

Holiday Cheetah: Jennifer Lopez for Kohls +$25 Kohls Giveaway

[ 219 ] December 15, 2014 |

Cheetah is the New Sparkle for the Holidays

Jennifer Lopez Cheetah Kohls Women over 45 Sonoma BootsThe Chief Blonde is wearing three fabulous holiday pieces provided by Kohls: The Jennifer Lopez Twist Front Sheath ($60, Sale $42), Sonoma Boots ($85, Sale $50), Hanes Seasonless Control Top Tights ($12). Also wearing faux shearling duster coat from Sam’s Club (similar), Monroe and Main Necklace (similar), wrap bracelet and cuff bracelet. 

You know I love “Sparkle” and sequins and Holiday Pink. I do! I do! But sometimes, I want to wear something a little wild and different for the holidays, especially during the daytime. This Holiday Cheetah outfit from Kohl’s is perfect for a brunch or lunch with your girlfriends.

Jennifer Lopez Cheetah Kohls Women over 45 Sonoma Boots

The thing I love about Kohl’s at the holidays or anytime of year is that I can find just the right outfit every time in a price that stuns my friends. I often wear clothes from their Jennifer Lopez line (here), Simply Vera by Vera Wang (here), and I adore all their DesigNation collaborations, like this recent one I modeled for Elie Tahari’s Line for Kohl’s.

Still Blonde after all these Years Kohls Women over 45 Sonoma Boots

And can we just talk for a moment about these Sonoma boots? Perfect heel height, perfect boot height and just the right amount of casual will make these my go to boot this winter. The best feature? For a Michigan winter? They are faux leather which means they will wear and wear and then wipe right off. I detest trashing leather boots with all the snow and salt, don’t you?

Jennifer Lopez Dress

This Jennifer Lopez Twist Front Sheath is so forgiving. It hides what you don’t want everyone  to see, comes in several different colors, and provides just the right amount of holiday “Look at Me” as a substitute for sparkle.

One thing you may not know about me is how much I love a good deal. Trust me when I tell you, I am the deal hound. On this particular look, I shopped on Cyber Monday so I was able to get free shipping and 30% off. My husband swears it’s almost FREE for me to shop at Kohl’s!

Will you be wearing Holiday Cheetah or Animal Print this holiday?
