Review: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows (10")


If your a fan of the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Laptop, then you'll love the Yoga Tablet 2 10" with Windows, which comes with a magnetic, optional bluetooth keyboard. I had tested out the 10" version during February fashion week and functioned just like a mini laptop, for all my social media and blogging needs. 

My favorite feature of both the Yoga 2 Pro Laptop and the Yoga Tablet 2 is the uniqueness of being able to position them into four modes: laptop, tablet, tent and stand. Another one of my favorite features is the design of the detachable keyboard. As far as using a tablet goes, I prefer to type with a keyboard to write my blog posts and answer emails. The keyboard that comes with the Yoga Tablet 2 is sturdy, yet slim and lightweight. It easily stays in place while typing thanks to the tablet kickstand. The kickstand can also be used to hang the tablet. I haven't tried hanging it yet but I love the option.  

With the exception of The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones, I never watch television shows in real time. There have been some instances where my DVR doesn't record a show because of a recording conflict, I forget to record a show, or my DVR only saves up to 5 recordings of a series. My On Demand also sometimes only featured the most recent 5 episodes of a show. When this happens, I'm glad I can download The CW, Syfy Now and FXNOW or watch via Amazon Instant Video. I can't tell you how many issues I've had with trying to catch up on television shows on my iPad. The Full HD (1920 x 1200) IPS display is superb, with a really crisp and bright picture quality. 

This tablet has an Intel Atom processor, 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot located behind the kickstand. It also comes with a one year subscription to MicrosoftOffice 365. The one thing I wish it did have is a USB port to access media kits on flash drives, or to charge my phone. With the right cable, the tablet allows you to charge your phone through the micro-USB with powered OTG connection. It would have been a major plus if the tablet came with the extra cable. 

Whether I'm at home, at the office, running around the city or traveling, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 has just about everything I am looking for in a tablet - portability, slim design, touch screen capability and keyboard, plus a year of MicrosoftOffice 365. Even with the keyboard, the tablet (1.3 lbs+) doesn't get too heavy if I'm running around the city all day. I can conveniently tote it around! The 15 hours of battery life is a major plus.

One thing I can't believe is the price. At $369.99 at shop.lenovo.com, this is such a better deal than spending $499 on an iPad.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Launch Party


It's April 19th! Time to hit up your local Target store or target.com and scoop up your favorite Lilly Pulitzer for Target items! In celebration of Lilly Pulitzer for Target, I attended the pop-up shop private shopping event on April 15th at the Bryant Park Grill, which was open to the public on April 16th.

VIP and media guests shopped the anticipated Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection, which includes 250 resort chic items across apparel, accessories, home and beauty. Celebrity guests in attendance included Kate Bosworth and Bella Thorne. 

I really was impressed with the quality, home products, from the ceramic mugs, wine toppers and gold-plated swizzle sticks to candle holders, decorative pillows and plates. The women's apparel was filled with Palm Beach-inspired prints including shift dresses, jumpsuits and bikinis. I was happy to pickup the white eyelet shorts and challis pom pom shorts. Included in the collaboration are L'oreal lipsticks, Essie polish and a number of cosmetic bags. 

Since there were a few items I didn't see at the pop-up party, including the embroidered clutch and espadrilles, I plan on going back to Target to hopefully find them.

Good luck and happy shopping!

With Kate Bosworth and Bella Thorne

Spring Spa Week at Skin Spa NYC


To celebrate Spring Spa Week, Skin Spa hosted a kickoff celebration on April 9th with complimentary laser genesis, oxygen facials and express manicures at their 119 West 57th Street location. I decided on trying the OxyTrio, which focuses on hydrating your skin and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles with the stimulating power of Oxygen. It's the perfect treatment for environmentally damaged or dehydrated skin. 


Skin Spa's specialty serum infused, 30-minute oxygen treatment boosts skin's vitality and increases absorption of vitamins A,C E and other nutrients. Like plumping the skin's surface, expression lines are hydrated and sallow skin glows. 

During the OxyTrio, an activator (step 1), detoxifier (step 2) and Oxygenator (step 3) is applied, followed by a moisturizer. During my OxyTrio treatment, I felt a slight tingling sensation on my face but soon after my skin felt rejuvenated and refreshed. My skin was immediately glowing and super hydrated. This is the perfect, instant treatment for a special event, and will keep your skin hydrated for the next 7 days. 

During Spa Week, the OxyTrio treatment, regularly $100, is only $50. A package of 6 treatments at $500 is available for $300. There's still time to book the OxyTrio or indulge in other Spa Week $50 treatments! Spa Week ends on April 19th! Go to spaweek.com to check out treatments and book appointments.
