The top 3 benefits to getting laser hair removal

So you're thinking of getting laser hair removal but something is stopping you. Is it the fact that people tell you that it is expensive? Don't be intimidated by what you hear from other people especially if they have not yet tried the procedure. You need to do your research to see just how effective it can be. to get you started, here are the top three benefits you can enjoy when you get laser hair removal.

1. You won't need to deal with waiting for hair to grow so you can remove it again -

One of the things that women do not like about shaving, waxing or tweezing, aside from the ingrown hair, is the long interval between the processes. You cannot shave every day or even every week for some. You will have to wait until the hair is long enough until you can shave it or wax it. Growing hair will not only feel itchy, it can also look unsightly, and you cannot do anything about it but just wait until it is long enough to remove again. But with laser hair removal, you don't need to experience that anymore as most patients experience permanent hair loss when they undergo the procedure.

2. You will be saving time -

One of the best benefits of laser hair removal is that you get to save the time that you used to allot for waxing and shaving can now be used for something else. If before, you needed at least half an hour or more to prepare for dates because you need to shave or pluck, if you do laser hair removal, you actually get to spend more time pampering yourself instead. Take a bubble bath while reading your favorite novel. Paint your toenails or catch up with friends on a coffee date. you'll be surprised to find that you will get to have a lot of free time because you had the laser hair removal.

3. You are saving money in the long run -

Many people are afraid and hesitant to try laser hair removal because they say it is expensive and not affordable. Now, while it is true that the treatment may be expensive when compared to your regular wax treatment at your favorite place, if you think about it, in the long run, you are actually saving money. Why? Because laser hair removal takes only several sessions for it to be effective. And when the sessions are done, you will only need a follow-up session of about once a year, but other than that, you won't need to spend any more money buying a shaver, shaving cream or getting the treatment.

If you have decided to get the procedure, you will need to prepare. First and foremost, choose where you will get it. Make sure that the clinic as a good reputation, like Body Details, who has been around for a decade and whose people are all qualified. Also, research on what you can or cannot do before your scheduled treatment.

The Top 3 Things You Can Wear For Comfort

Depending on factors like the weather, where you are headed, the occasion or type of work that you do or intend to carry out, there are several clothes, shoes, and accessories that you can wear. However, it is important that you pick out the right items that are comfortable despite the factors involved.

What you wear should be comfortable to sit and move around in without causing you discomfort or exposing you to the elements. Here are the top three things that you can wear for comfort.

Sizable, fitting clothes (Mobb scrub pants):

When selecting comfortable clothes buy loose fitting clothes that won’t press too much on your body making it difficult to move around. If you are a uniform person, mobb scrub pants are the most comfortable and ideal choice there is. Mobb scrub pants will keep your legs feeling both warm and comfortable. The elasticity in the pants makes them free to walk with ease and give you a sense of comfort for the entire day.

For those not wearing uniforms, just pick on clothing that is not too tight or too loose to wear. If you decide on a loose top, pair it with something that’s fitting to improve your overall look. You can also pair the clothes with a bit of accessory if you like, or if your profession does not restrict it.

Warm clothing:

It is important to always wear clothes that are not only warm, but comfortable during the cold season. Always wear a base layer in cold weather or when going to a place where the weather might change to increase your body temperature. This can be worn under your jacket, hood or sweater to keep you as warm and as comfortable as possible.

This can either be a long-sleeved t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt. A warm sweatshirt, pull neck like a shirt will also be an ideal choice to prevent the cold from getting in through your neck. When it comes to the jacket, pick a jacket that has a warm lining that retains the heat within your body.

Going down, find pants with a warmer lining that will keep your thighs and legs feeling warm and not let in any cold. Shoes should also be accompanied by thick, heavy socks for comfort and warmth.

Flats and low heeled shoes:

Flat and low heeled shoes can be worn any time of the day without making you tired or causing your feet to hurt. For a more official look such as in the office, you can opt to wear a low heeled shoe with a good base and insole to support your feet throughout the entire day. Flat and low heeled shoes are not only comfortable, but easier to walk in and to avoid foot ache in case you have to stand for long hours.

Apart from flat shoes, warm and loose clothing, lightweight materials such as light shirts and pants are also comfortable especially during hot weather conditions. Always wear something that is breathable and that allows your body to either retain or let out heat depending on the weather conditions.

Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST and BLAST Portable Speakers

*The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.*

Summer is winding down. My kids go back to school in 11 days. It seems like the time is just flying by. There is still time for a last hurrah, so I want to make it count. No summer gathering would be complete without epic tunes.

That's there the Ultimate Ears MegaBlast and Blast portable Speakers come in. I am someone who always wants "top-of the-line", so I was partial to the MegaBlast, since it is Ultimate Ears' most powerful speaker. It also has hands-free Amazon Alexa built in. It's bluetooth and WiFi capable and has a (up to) 16 hour rechargeable battery. Plus you can play and charge at the same time.


The MegaBlast sounds awesome, right? Well it is, obviously. But the Blast is water resistant! Here in Florida, that is almost all it takes to sell me on it. But it also has 360 degree, intensely rich, sound.Two 35mm active drivers ensure crisp, clear sound, always. It also has Multiple microphones with beam forming technology and noise cancellation to enable a smooth long-range voice recognition and control experience.


No matter which you choose you will get enhanced controls on the Ultimate Ears app. You can control volume remotely from the app, which is especially useful if you have your music cranked up loud and want to use Alexa. You can also check battery status through the app, or right from the speaker by pressing the “+/-” volume buttons simultaneously.

It just keeps getting better, with more awesome features coming soon, like Spotify voice control. You can already control Amazon Music, Deezer, TuneIn, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and SiriusXM with your voice. Spotify Connect will be an option soon too. So you can play your Spotify right to the speaker (under "devices availabole") without having to connect to bluetooth.

Also coming soon is the ultimate block-party experience (my words). With the option to pair up to 8 MegaBlast and Blast speakers together. Optimized to take advantage of the speakers’ built-in Wi-Fi capability, you will experience greater range for grouped speakers and improved connection reliability. Eight speakers, all blasting the same awesome tunes, I can't imagine a sweeter (yet more rockin') sound.

So obviously, everyone needs one of these. The only hard part is which one, unless you just get both. MegaBlast, Blast or both, you can get a great price at Best Buy. They are on sale right now! What are you waiting for, headto Best Buy and pick up the sound of summer, before summer is gone.

HP Envy x360 Laptops at Best Buy

*The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.* 

You all know how much I love working with Best Buy to keep you in the know on all the hottest tech and best deals. This time is especially amazing, though. I get to tell you about the HP Envy x360 Laptops. Cool enough, right? But the really weird thing is that I just bought one a week ago before I even knew about this campaign. That alone should tell you how hot these laptops are. 


The one I chose is one of the 15" Envy x360 Laptops, because I don't move mine around too much and I insist on a large screen. Like all of the HP Evny Laptops, it has a touch screen (and can use a stylus) and is completely foldable (laptop, audience, tabletop, presentation, and tablet modes), taking it from a laptop to a tablet in seconds, so you can take it anywhere. 



The AMD Processors make it fast and thin, so it won't slow you down.
Though it is travel friendly, it  has full size performance, right down to the LED backlit, keyboard.I hate a condensed keyboard.
The Windows operating system allows you do do everything you would expect (and more) from your PC. It is also built for Windows Ink, so you can jot down notes and ideas with ease.

If you want something even more travel friendly than mine, there is the HP Envy x360 13" line, with all the same great features as the 15". Perfect for students or anyone that carries their laptop with them frequently.  Whichever size you choose, you are getting a larger-than-life (2-in-1) laptop that will take care of all of your school, work, and play.And through 6/28 you can save $100 when you buy your HP Envy x360 at Best Buy.

If you are a beginner or you are looking for a free learning experience, Best Buy has that covered too, with free in-store photography workshops. They will be 2 hours long and will cover the photography basics. You will still get 1:1 interaction with Best buy Camera Experience Shop Experts to walk through your camera’s settings.

Best Buy's Camera Experience Shop is like visiting a specialty camera store, right in the middle of your local Best Buy. Not only are the very knowledgeable, but they are all photography enthusiasts too. And of course they have an larger assortment of cameras, lenses & accessories that you won’t find in other locations, but they also let you touch and test them, to truly try in store before you buy.

No matter which option you choose, you are sure to learn a lot and have fun. If you want to do one of the Photography Workshop Tours, but 7/28 is too short notice, you're in luck, because they will be offered again in October and January. You can sign-up to be notified when these go live for registration in the fall/winter. Do you plan to sign up for one? I'd love to hear all about it if you do.

Have the Best Birthday Ever at Chuck E. Cheese's

My dear son, Bobby, just turned 11. Many of you know he has autism, so he has different interests than many 11 year olds, who, I feel, often try to grow up too fast. He is very much a child at heart. He usually does not particularly like social places, but there is one place that he loves, even if it is packed - Chuck E. Cheese's.

We took him there for his 6th birthday, and he never looked back. He has gone the for his birthday every year since, with no end in sight. He loves it. He loves the games, He loves Chuck E., he even loves the food! (Well, the chicken nuggets and the Dippin' Dots.)



We get the birthday package so he can get in the Ticket Blaster and get a birthday song from Chuck E. Plus other goodies like goodie bags, balloons and more. We also chose the packages largely for the All You Can Play option, that allows for unlimited games for a set amount of time (like 30 minutes to 2 hours.)

Now, the All You Can Play is available without having to book a party and starts at just $9 for 30 minutes. A great way to make the most of your money. Great for hoarding tickets. Hubby and I rack up the tickets as much as we can, one of us has to shadow the kids at all times, which the daughter's choice, not because they can't safely wander. That way the kids can play anything, or do rides with no tickets, and still get plenty for prizes. Plus, honestly, we love games as much as they do.

If you are looking for the perfect place to hold a party of any size, or just a fun indoor activity that can be affordable, Chuck E. Cheese's is perfect. My daughter agrees, which is why we will be right back in September for her birthday party.

*Chuck E. Cheese's sent me some passes and tickets, but we booked and paid for the party on our own with no incentive. All opinion are 100% unbiased.*

More Fun Outdoors With SunBriteTV

*The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.*
 
Summer is here! Kids are out of school, the weather is warm, and it's the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. I'll admit, I love to get out and have fund with friends, but I am more an indoor person.

One of the biggest things I miss when outside is TV. I am a compulsive TV binger. I get enthralled in a series and watch it every available moment until there is none left and then I regret not having savored it longer. I can't do that outside, or can I?

With SunBriteTV it's possible. What a time to be alive! The SunBriteTV Veranda series is a family of weatherproof televisions designed for full-shade applications, like our front porch. There are also the Signature Series (for partial sun) and Pro Series (full sun), so you could put one literally anywhere. 


Unlike regular, indoor, TVs, SunBriteTV is made for the outdoors, engineered to be weatherproof. They are meant for permanent outdoor installation. Perfect for creating a backyard theater, or making your front porch the best "room" of the house. 


As much as I tout the usefulness for my binge watching, this would actually be really useful for "drive-in" movie nights and Super Bowl parties and the like. With football games all summer, any game can be "the big game". We've had watching parties here before, but it was a tight squeeze, with SunBriteTV, we could have had so much more space (and less disruption in the house.)



No more boredom during commercials; play horseshoes, Frisbee,  kick a ball around. Get a little exercise and don't feel like your wasting time watching TV, not that I ever do.With a SunBriteTV it's like adding a whole other room to your home, for just the cost of 1 item. There is no easier way to expand your entertaining space.

It's even easier right now with this great deal from Best Buy. Get a free Outdoor Weatherproof Tilt Mount (for 37" - 80" TVs) with the purchase of: SunBriteTV - Veranda Series - 55" Class LED - Outdoor - Full Shade - 2160p - 4K Ultra HD TV. Are you going to take advantage of this deal? Where would you put your SunBriteTV? What would you watch most? Who will you invite? I love hearing your thoughts; let's discuss in the comments.
