Dyson Demo In Tysons Corner.

Dyson has officially opened their location in Tysons Corner, VA and I was lucky enough to partner with them on this campaign for the opening! It’s one of their first locations here in the US and I was so excited to check it out during their VIP Media Event. If you’re local to Northern Virginia and want to get your hands on experience with Dyson — you need to make this a stop on your list next time you head to Tysons Corner. They have Dyson experts throughout the store who greet you with a smile and willingness to teach you!

Below I will be sharing with you Dyson’s experience, their amazing technology and some of my favorites and a few on my wish list.

I have been a Dyson fan (pun intended) since I first used their AM06 10 inch Desk Fan. I remember first seeing it at Carl’s apartment when we first started dating. I was so confused on how it worked. He then gave me a lesson on Dyson and their technology. They use Air Multiplier™ technology which is incredible, if you haven’t watch a video on how the process works, check it out – it’s linked HERE. This makes the fan 75% quieter but not to the point where if you need a fan to sleep it won’t work, it does! Every since I turned on this fan, I moved it from his side of the bed to mine. haha, No joke, he had to get his own. Which now he has the Pure Hot+Cool™ Link on his side! Which I’ll be describing next!

Click HERE to purchase the AM06 10 inch Desk Fan and click HERE for the tower.

Pure Hot+Cool™ Link 

“Dyson purifiers capture 99.97% of particulates as small as 0.3 microns, and keep them trapped. Other purifiers can struggle to trap as much, releasing potentially harmful ultrafine particles back into the room.”

The purifier also uses the Air Multiplier™ technology which helps push the clean air around the room. Did you know that the air in your home can be dirtier than the air outside? Shocking right? Opening windows and having this purifier will help change the quality of the air you’re breathing on a daily basis. One feature that we also love about this product is that it can push cool air or heat! Yep, you can use this year around to meet your seasonal and air needs at the same time.

Also, you don’t even need to get out of bed to operate it. That’s right — There is a Dyson Link App! You can turn it off, on, change the setting straight from your cell phone. It also automatically monitors, reacts and purifies. Then reports straight to the Dyson Link app.

Next up, the cord-free vacuums. Carl and I have three in our house, yes THREE. We literally live for these. We have two dogs and the hair that accumulates around is over whelming! The great thing about the cord-free is it lasts for 30 mins, they have one that lasts for 40 mins and also 20 mins. Just depends on what your needs are.

Below you will find their designs and direct links for more information on their features and if you’d like to purchase!

Direct link HERE for more info and to purchase. (Seven choices)

They have so many different vacuums depending on what your need is. I recommend going HERE to see all that Dyson offers and to find the one that is right for you!

Below is one of my favorite newest products by Dyson and it’s on my wish list. The one and only Supersonic Hair Dryer! They have truly redesigned the hairdryer to meet all the things we have always wanted! For example, you know how heavy your blow dryer is right now? Your arm literally feels sore after drying your hair right? I know mine does and then I have one arm muscle bigger than the other! (haha!) The Supersonic is less than 2lbs!

“The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer uses intelligent heat control to maintain Dyson’s optimum temperature, helping to prevent extreme heat damage. Less damaged hair reflects light in a single direction, making the hair appear shiny.” — 100% True! I tried this for myself first hand and my hair was not only shiny it wasn’t frizzy. Who else hates the way our hair is frizzy after blow drying?! I know I do. Thankful Dyson has solved that as well!

“You need a certain amount of heat to style hair, but extreme heat can cause damage. By keeping the temperature under control, our hair dryer can help to protect your hair.”

–Annmarie NicholsonDesign Engineer

3 speed settings:

Fast drying, Regular drying and Gentle drying

4 heat settings

212°F Fast drying and styling

176°F Regular drying

140°F Gentle drying

Constant cold

Click HERE for more features and to purchase! You can pick your color and what type of package you’d like.

Also on my wish list is the dyson 360 eye robot vacuum. This is your best friend if your running out the door and don’t have time to vacuum, or trying to get ready for an event taking place at your house yet you can’t do two things at once? Problem solved.

The Dyson 360 Robot will map out your entire floor plan and then get to work. What happens if the battery dies? It puts itself back on the charger and then remembers where it left off. No, I’m not kidding. It’s a dream come true for all of us busy bodies! I personally want this to follow my dogs around until they have no hair left. (haha!)

This is another amazing product you can remotely control from your phone. You can set the time you’d like it start and finish. Leaving work and forgot to vacuum? No problem, jump on your Dyson app and put this bad boy (or girl!) to work. It has twice the suction power of any robot vacuum. Dyson does it better, it’s a fact. It also has voice control. Click HERE to learn more about its features and to purchase!

I was very honored when Dyson asked me to attend this event and work together on this campaign. I know what you might be thinking, “Well do you own any Dyson products” Yes! I do. Carl and I have 8 total Dyson products, only one of them we got as a trial campaign. Below you can see our own Dyson family!

We are proud to stand by dyson and their designs. I hope that if you’re local to the VA area you check out their new location at Tysons Corner, there will be a store opening in New York and San Fran! For everyone else, direct links have been entered throughout this post for you to shop and to learn more about their technology and why you should invest in a product that you’ll love and won’t let you down.

Yotel Hotel – My first NYC Stay!

Where do I even begin? I can’t even explain how I’m 31 and have never been to New York City! But, I had an amazing first time and I don’t think it could have gone any better. Not only did I get to meet my blogger bestie Adaleta (click HERE for her Instagram) for the first time in person, we also got to stay at Yotel Hotel! Yotel Hotel is thee cutest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Below I will share with you why I truly LOVED my stay and was so blessed to have them host us!

The first thing you notice when you pull up is this YOTEL sign lit up in purple, at night you can see if from every corner of the block. (Thank goodness — I couldn’t get lost “follow the purple lights”) Soon as you walk in the hotel front lobby is gorgeous! It’s CLEAN ( Being in NY, I have no idea how they keep it so spotless) and there are computer to check into if you haven’t used their app already. (I plan ahead and used their app! It’s called Yotel in the app store.)

Customer Service is ON point!

There are friendly faces greeting you when you first walk in, asking if you need any assistance. Youssef was someone Adaleta and I had the pleasure to speak with a few times, he was amazing. Always had a smile on his face, helped us with our bags and kept them for us the day we checked out while we went and grabbed lunch.

I appreciate no matter how many questions I asked the staff, they were always willing to help and always had a smile on their face. They could of been slammed with people but they kept their cool, and to me, thats everything!

Every time I grabbed the elevator for level 4, which is their main lobby and when the doors opened, I was in love…with every piece of decor. (Please feel free to ship to my home!)  Just look at this!!! 

Everything had such flair, it’s own special place and they mixed and matched different styles. It was done beautifully. I still want this daisy stool for my office!!

Adaleta and myself had a few meals at the hotel when we needed something quick and didn’t feel like putting real clothes on. Below you’ll find their outdoor patio and how we got down and grubbed.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking — That IS a beer pong table! haha This outdoor space is a HIT. People who don’t even stay here come to hangout when the night life starts. They have a full bar outside as well as a food menu. I had tried their burger/fries and also their brunch — both were delicious! I’m such a foodie and was very pleased with everything. You’re welcome for adding a food photo & nowwww you’re hungry!

Our room/cabins were so cute and had the best view! I can’t complain waking up the hustle and bustle of NYC. Not only is it gorgeous, its so motivating. The floor to ceiling windows and the bed was motorized where you can lay flat or sit up straight. I also need one of those sent home too. haha!

I stayed on the 20th floor and Adaleta was above me on the 22nd. We both had gorgeous views!!! You can view mine below, and yes…Rocking my Steeler slippers like a champ.

I must admit, I kept my windows open every night so I could see the city lit up at night. I feel asleep to it and woke up to it. I fell so in love with NYC in the week I stayed and I’m counting down the days until I can go back to Yotel and visit where I’ve always belonged!

I adore how this is downtown Manhattan but NOT in the middle of Times Square. Every place that Adaleta and myself needed to be was 15-20 mins in one direction or another. It was easy for us to get around and theres a bunch of places within walking distance. Chase Bank, Dry Bar, Fed Ex, a lot of different restaurants and coffees shops. (There is a coffee shop inside the hotel on level 4. They have everything you’d want and small treats!) Location is key when choosing a hotel and we were both very pleased with their location.

Let’s get back to how much fun Adaleta and I had together here at Yotel. We had brunch Sunday morning together before our photoshoot! We even had a mimosa, well she did and mine…actually she knocked mine over. haha

Our brunch was delicious! She went for the burger after I told her how amazing mine was earlier in the week and I got the steak and eggs! I know just uploading this photo made my mouth water. Yotel, please send some to VA! K, thanks!

If you’re looking for a new place to stay for your next New York City trip, I highly recommend you check out Yotel Hotel and enjoy every aspect they have for you. It’s more than a hotel, it truly feels like a home away from home. Couldn’t be happier with my 6 days there. Yotel also has hotels all over the US and internationally as well. Where’s you next vacation? Take a look HERE and see if Yotel is there! I promise, you’ll have a blast and won’t be let down. Hotels need to feel more than just a room to stay in, Yotel created an atmosphere you’ll want to spend time in. This makes all the difference!

Thank you Yotel Hotel in NYC for letting Adaleta and I have the time of our lives here in New York for Fashion Week. It was a vacation we will never forget.

You can easily where this entire outfit to work or for a night out on the town, add a jacket and you can change your look quickly and easily!

Thank you Heidi for making me feel like a supermodel myself in this outfit. Mission accomplished!

Second outfit I styled two different ways was this stunning metallic skirt. I am SO into this trend right now and I’m ok admitting I will buy anything metallic. LOL. I styled this skirt in two ways; edgy and classy. I will show you both below. You can purchase this skirt for only $9.99 and it comes in 4 different styles. If you’re feeling sassy you can rock the metallic or leopard – if you’d like to tone it down for a certain occasion you can rock the plain black and navy blue!

I love staple pieces, is this is why I’m crazy for her line. You can literally mix and match whatever you want with these items and you still look amazing! White T-shirt? Yep! Leather jacket? Yep! Faux Fur! Why not!

My third outfit I put together was with the new knit coatigan. There are four different styles of this as well and it’s priced for $19.99! Below I’m wearing the cognac! It also comes in black, blue and a color block of beige – black – blue and creme which is stunning. This coatigan can easily be paired with your favorite pair of jeans, t-shirt and sneakers. I paired mine with a shirt dress and thigh high boots!

I’m also rocking my new black clutch – this is also $19.99 and comes with a cross body strap as well incase you want to rock is across! It comes in this color and also a blue/black.

I hope you found some great pieces to add to your own closet and you don’t have to break the budget! I know I’m currently on my way to Lidl as soon as I hit “publish” on this post. I am so excited to see the store.

My Week long test drive with the 2017 Impreza by Subaru.

This post was sponsored by Subaru, my urge to sell my current car and get a Subaru are truly my own feelings. 

Besides feeling like one of the “Price Is Right” woman here, this car should be your main focus. I was lucky enough to be able to test drive the 2017 Subaru Impreza for an entire week! How cool is that right? Below you will find some highlights, photos, my favorite features and even Carl jumps in on this post to give you his favorites as well!!

I honestly wish I could just drop this car off for you to drive, but since I can’t…I’m going to try my hardest to make you understand why I’m now a huge fan and it has me feeling “FOMO” since they came and took the car back.

Not only is the interior sleek and gorgeous, it’s truly incredible all the features you have inside. Let me touch on a few of my favorite:

Apple CarPlay – If you have an iPhone like I do, you’ll love the feature. It’s a multimedia touchscreen that mirrors your favorite apps. Obviously helping you navigate easier. Such as text messages where you can speak to text so you can keep those hands and eyes on the road!! If you don’t have an iPhone, no worries there is the Android Auto! You can link your phone easily and you don’t have to be tech savvy.

Keyless Access with Push-button Start – yasssssss. Not only is this function more convenient but it also helps you NOT lock your keys in the car. This is something I’ve done way too many times.

Adaptive cruise control lets you set your speed and maintain a constant safe distance with the car in front of you without having to jump on the gas or break constantly, very cool.

Carl’s favorite features:

AWD + 38 MPG – If you live in an area that experiences all 4 seasons like we do, AWD is a must. Knowing you have the ability to navigate the snow when it arrives is important for those of us not lucky enough to wear shorts year round. The MPG was another pleasant surprise, we averaged 31MPG while we drove it around town!
Automatic breaking is a great safety feature that gives you even more confidence while behind the wheel. Knowing that you have a backup set of eyes, in essence, is a great thing! It stepped in once while we were driving because a car in front of us suddenly stopped on a one lane road, its a feature that is honestly great for all drivers, especially if you have a newer driver in the family. Another example of the emphasis on safety that Subaru has brought to the new Impreza.
The touchscreen electronics display is extremely easy and intuitive. It also features one of the coolest XM features I have ever seen. If you change read stations it automatically starts the current song from the beginning!! Whaaaat, no more just missing your favorite songs. At first I thought I was just lucky that I happened to catch every song from its start but then I realized I’m not as skilled as I hoped and the Subaru Eyesight was doing the heavy lifting.
Multifunction Display – It’s good information to have handy; fuel economy, directions etc. It’s easier to see because it’s closer to the windshield so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road or get distracted.

I know when I’ve spoken to people on why they love Subaru they all said two things:

– Strong Frame / Safety Ratings.

– Affordability / Value 

We all want a car to keep us and our loved ones safe, as well as not breaking the bank without sacrificing all the features you want and need! Subaru does an amazing job at this.  We shouldn’t ever have to jeopardize either of those things because of price. Thank you Subaru for building a stronger frame and making it within our reach!

Let’s talk space!

Larger cargo area, wide rear opening and roof rails. Going shopping? Taking a road trip? No worries, theres room for that and more. The second row seating can fold down for more space as well.

One of my favorite features below is the cargo cover. I love being able to put things in the back and then pull this down so no one can view what is in the back! (Especially for those shopping trips, just think Christmas time!) You can view below!

I suggest you visit your local dealer, hop onto their website to build your own or even pick up your friend and go test drive a Subaru today. I promise you won’t regret it.

Bell Sleeves, Studs and Must Have Denim!

One thing I love about fashion, being able to do whatever you want . Maybe you’ll wake up today wanting to only wear yoga pants, or maybe you’ll rock out that new hand bag with those studded heels — feeling like a rockstar either way.

These studded heels are marked down to $41 from $119!!! They come in grey and black. 

Also linked some similar for less, Shop Below!

This bag is a deal! I just got it in the mail last week from them. Comes in this light grey  or olive color. I personally love the grey, goes with everything! It’s under $40.

Also linked some other bags that I currently adore!

Tassel earrings, an easy way to make a statement!

Last but not least let’s talk about this bell sleeve sweater and these jeans!!

I linked this sweater and similar ones for all under $30! 

I’ve gotten so many questions on these jeans and I know a few of your picked them up when I first posted about them, they do run true to size and they also hold their shape all day long. I’m a fan! You’ll find them linked below!

Hope I helped you find some great Fall additions! It’s right around the corner.

Get My Curls with Sexy Hair. Hair tutorial video included!!

Hey Ya’ll,

I can’t tell you how many messages I get about how I curl my hair and which products I love to use in my routine. This post has been long over due!! Today I have partnered up with Sexy Hair to show you how to prep and curl your hair to get some gorgeous curls.

As much as you want to get right down to how to achieve these curls that will last you all day, it’s important to first go over how to care and prep your hair for the styling! I used to not “prep” for my styling and sadly didn’t have the shine I wanted and I even had really bad split ends, I highly recommend using the products below.

Also, don’t forget to view the video below,

you’ll see how easy it is to achieve these curls!

LONG SEXY HAIR – LUXURIOUS SHAMPOO
Click HERE for the direct link.
This shampoo will do the cleaning you need, removing any of the left over product you might have in your hair as well as providing that soft shine everyone wants!  This is good for even extensions.
 
LONG SEXY HAIR – LUXURIOUS CONDITIONER
Click HERE for the direct link.
This gentle conditioner is infused with Moringa Oil & Biotin. These ingredients help give you hair smoothness and shine that you want. It will also help hydrate those ends! I use this on my ends, leave on for 2-3 mins and then rinse while I’m still in the shower.
HEALTHY SEXY HAIR – SOY TRI-WHEAT LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER
Click HERE for the direct link.
For those days when your hair needs extra love and hydration you can use this! I use this 2-3 times a week depending on how much I’m blow drying or styling my hair. If you swim a lot, this is a great product to have as well. You simply spray on your damp towel dried hair and brush through! Easy as that and your hair will be thanking you later.
HOT SEXY HAIR – PREP ME 450°F HEAT PROTECTION BLOW DRY PRIMER 
Click HERE for the direct link.
This is the most important part of your hair routine. Prepping your hair for styling is a must, if you don’t you will have major breakage and spit ends. No one wants that, right?! I use a quarter size dab while my hair is damp. I rub in-between both hands and then run my hands through my hair.
Three major key factors:
– Protects up to 450°F
– Reduces breakage by up to 68%!*
– No product feel, ideal for layering with other styling products!
(*Results from Independent Study against untreated hair.)
HEALTHY SEXY HAIR- SOY TOUCHABLE WEIGHTLESS HAIRSPRAY
Click HERE for the direct link.
I use Soy Touchable to achieve and hold my natural curls. It provides just the right amount of hold without the sticky or hard feeling. You’re able to still run your hands through your hair without tangling or stiffness. If you live in an area of any sort of humidity this is also the product for you. It has great humidity-resistance and controlling frizz. This also will help protect your hair when you curl it as well, but also make sure you use that Hair Prep as well!!!
Now the fun part! My hair tutorial is below.

Let me know if you have any questions, I’d love to answer.

CLARINS – NEW Double Serum! Must Have Product!

I’ve partnered today with Clarins to bring you the newest, latest and greatest product release! I’m thrilled to be able to get my hands on their Double Serum. Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, they took the number one seller + cult-favorite Double Serum and gave it a face lift. If you know anything about me, you know I’m a skin-care junkie! I have tested this product for 7 days so far and my results are below, yes results after 7 days. I couldn’t believe it either, but believe it!

It’s very important to know what ingredients are in the products you want to use. Below I’ll be breaking down what ingredients are in the Double Serum and what the benefit is for your skin. These things together provide 5 key functions that will help change your skin for the better.

  1. Regeneration
  2. Oxygenation
  3. Nutrition
  4. Hydration
  5. Protection

Regeneration: Red Jania, Green banana, Avocado, Myrothamnus: helps promotes skin firmness, visibly minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.

Oxygenation: Teasel, Organic Goji Berries, Beautyberry (sounds like I need to have a bush of these haha) Horse Chestnut: Boosts radiance, visibly tones and energizes.

Nutrition: Kiwi, Mary’s Thistle: Enhances cellular nutrition and promotes absorption of nutrients for healthy-looking skin.

Hydration: Leaf of Life, Quinoa, Marsh Samphire, Cocoa Tree: Powers the skin’s natural hydration and supports the skin’s natural barrier function.

Protection: Mango Tree, Hyang Qi, Ginger Lily, Edelweiss: Helps protect cells from oxidative stress and fights free radicals.

I know thats a lot of information to read, but if you’re putting something on your skin daily, you need to know how it’s helping your skin, why and which ingredients are involved.

My thoughts on the product after trying for one week is below! Yes, this is what you’ve been waiting for!

I use the Double Serum for 7 days straight, night and day as my second step in my skincare routine. I have seen some great results. I do have issues with my pores, breakouts and un-even skin tone. I have seen a major change in the texture of my skin and pores.  By day 3 and 4 my skin felt smoother!! By day 7 I am seeing a slight improvement in my skin tone, which will probably take using the product a little more but seeing any sort of change has really made me excited to see the results after a month. Like anything else, some will see results quicker than others. So with that being said, I will continue to add Double Serum into my routine.

One of my favorite hidden features about this product that I truly think is such an amazing feature; they gave it double chamber packaging! You might be thinking, “What is that?” Well! Let me tell you! Depending on what type of day your skin is having or even what season of the year it is, you can do a tiny drop or a power shot of serum.

Tiny Drop: Combination to oily skin, warm, humid climate (Summer time).

Power Shot: Normal, dry or sensitive skin, cold/dry climates (Winter time).

See the photo above from their website and the one below from mine.

The two indents on top, you can see two different sized drops.

One of my favorite aspects of the Double Serum is that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily, I’ve tried plenty that have. It felt as though my skin was feeding on the serum, drank it right up and left my skin looking refreshed and radiant. I will continue with this serum and give you all an update later on my Instagram page.

Clarins has me hooked and now a believer. All opinions are my own!

Express Yourself In A Summer Pattern!

The one thing I look for when I’m shopping is a fun and bright pattern that I don’t see everywhere. I love finding items that you don’t see on every person. I love having something that people go ‘Where did you get that from?!?!” Right?!?

I have fun shopping and finding items from one of my favorite online boutiques; Gray Monroe. I love it so much she’s given me a discount code for y’all, so if you purchase anything from her site you can use code: tonyamichelle26 & you’ll get 15% off.

Keeping My “Me-Time” Daily With Aveeno.

 

Everyday I take a few minutes in the morning and before bed to care for myself, my skin and my mind. Aveeno® is encouraging women to take a “moment for me” each day to recharge so they look and feel their best. To me, that’s so important! We often forget to stop, take a minute and care for ourselves in our busy day! I’m thankful for partnering up with Aveeno today to share this important message and a fun giveaway below.

Light a candle, read a book and enjoy the Aveeno skin care I’m about to go over below! It’s a needed “me-time” kinda day, everyday!

I was just able to try the Aveeno® Positively Radiant® 60 Second In-Shower Facial which is amazing! Who doesn’t have 60 seconds to clean your skin while also brightening. Also, the scent is super soft and refreshing, it’s the perfect way to start or end your day.

I keep the Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Lotion with the pump on my office desk, working non-stop on my computer and phone tends to dry my hands out which it’s an easy go-to pump for a quick relief on my hands. Sometimes I even catch Carl sneaking some! It’s perfect for men or women.

Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Yogurt Vanilla & Oats is something I keep in my skincare cabinet. After I shower I apply the body yogurt all over my skin. I love how quickly it absorbs into my skin leaving a silky finish that isn’t greasy. The hint of vanilla is my favorite! I’ve loved the smell of vanilla since I was a child, reminds me of those candles my grandma used to burn.

We all have busy days. Whether we are running errands, at working having a crazy day or trying to run your own business while chasing your children. Whatever it is, please remember to take some time each morning and night for yourself. If we don’t take time for ourselves to give some self-love we can’t be the best version of ourselves.  I’m a firm believer in order to be able to give love, we have to love ourselves. In every aspect! Don’t you agree?

I hope while reading this blog post you realize how you must take a few minutes for yourself every day and take care of your mind, body and soul! Treat yourself to some Aveeno and you will see such a huge improvement on how your skin feels. I would love to hear below how you take time for yourself!
