Zeusvision Public Launch

I have recently been introduced to Zeusvision and their digital media buses, which operate in areas of Los Angeles, including Hollywood, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. Currently, Zeusvision clients are made up of Fortune 500 companies such as Warner Bros, NBC, Universal Pictures and Disney, with a cost of $100,000 per month. 

Zeusvision is launching a public campaign on October 27th to bring affordable, mobile multimedia advertising to most major cities in 2015. Zeusvision 40ft buses with 31-foot video advertising and theatre quality QSC audio system will be adding an array of unique features for the public launch. They are including on-board technologies, like GPS, cameras, intertial motion sensors, light sensors, eye tracking, gesture tracking, real-time GPU processing, and other tech packages they are still exploring to allow your graphics and video to interact with the public. 

Giovanni Wolfgang, CEO and inventor of Zeusvision, envisioned Zeusvision as a public messaging platform that anyone can use to get their personal message or commercial advertisement out in highly visible public spaces. 

As a blogger, Zeusvision would be perfect for promoting any public events I planned on hosting. It can also be used to announce a wedding or birthday, or to say something special for an anniversary. I am always meeting new people that open up a new retail space, pop-up shop or restaurant, and this would also be a great way for them to advertise.  Lookout for Zeusvision buses in NYC next year. With packages starting at just $99, it's an affordable way to get your message across.

On Tuesday, October 14th, Cat Footwear held a launch party for their Autum/Winter 2014 collection at their their new Pop-Up at 501 Lexington Avenue at 47th Street. 

The event celebrated the return of the brand's original "Colorado" boot from 1990, which is available again for the first time in the U.S. this Fall season. In keeping with this theme, Cat Footwear hand selected 5 New York City-based artists and challenged them with using the Colorado boot as their blank canvas. The featured artists - Ivan Orama, James Gulliver Hancock, Liz Lomax, Amanda Dolan and Misha Tyutyunik, unveiled their one-of-a-kind artworks at the event. There was also a presentation with models showcasing the new iterations of the Colorado boot from the AW14 collection, as guests enjoyed cocktails and sounds by DJ Jasper Stapleton. 

With over 100 monogrammed storefronts worldwide, this is Cat Footwear's first-ever Pop-Up in the U.S. The Pop-Up is open to consumers from October 21st-28th, 11am - 7pm daily, and features 3 limited edition styles from the UK that have never been available to the U.S. consumer. The pop-up will be the first and only place to get these styles, while supplies last.

Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps and Lentil Snaps Snack Box Review + Giveaway!

I think the first time I tried Harvest Snaps was when I received a sample of the Lightly Salted Snapea Crisps in my PINCHme box last November. I was immediately hooked, so I was excited when I received my Harvest Snaps Snack Box just a few days ago. I wasn't aware that there are five other flavors now too: Caesar, Black Pepper and Wasabi Ranch Snapea Crisps and Tomato Basil and Onion Thyme Lentil Snaps.

The baked Snapea Crips and Lentil Snaps are great to snack on at the office, after a workout or to mix in with lunch. Snapea Crisps are made with 70% all-natural peas and Lentil Snaps come packed with 65% authentic lentils. When compared to regular potato chips, Harvest Snaps have less fat, low sodium and are gluten-free. With each handful, your body soaks up Vitamin B, calcium, iron, folate, potassium and dietary fiber. The high level of protein and fiber definitely satisfies my snack cravings without feeling sluggish. Each flavor is spot on, with a lightweight, crunch texture -  they are too addictive to eat just a few. In fact, it's very easy to end up eating the entire bag in one sitting.  

I love snacking on Harvest Snaps on their own, but look forward adding the Caesar Snapea Crisps to a caesar salad, Wasabi Ranch Snapea Crisps to sushi rolls, Tomato Basil Lentil Snaps as a side snack to tomato soup and grilled cheese and Onion Thyme Lentil Snaps to a burger. It's hard to pick a favorite flavor, but I think I'd have to go with Caesar. 

The bags in my Harvest Snaps Snack Box are 3.0 oz each. I just wish the bags had a zip top closure. If you eat them as a snack on their own, they are best to eat out of a bowl or cup. I've found that I get more crumbs everywhere when eating them out of the bag. Learn more about Harvest Snaps here
