Kitty Bradshaw vs The Wig: Freetress Creta Girl #AlohaKitty

 Kitty Bradshaw vs The Wig: Freetress Creta GirlCreta Girl 7

I am in Hawaii for 6 weeks, blah blah blah you know the story.  Prior to coming here, as a black woman I spent about 2 weeks thinking about how I was going to wear my hair.  Also, the last u-Part wig that I wore ripped a plug of my hair out on the side from the braids being way too tight.  I wanted to give my hair a break by leaving it out, but I didn’t want to have to do my hair either in Hawaii.  Between the tropical humidity, beach, water, rain, wind… I refuse to be a slave to my hair.

My aunt and I went to the beauty supply store for hair inspiration and I came across the Freetress Creta Girl Half Wig.  Now, I have a big head so the idea of buying a wig never popped into my head because I can never find one that fits this noggin.  The sales girl persuaded me to try the Creta Girl because of it’s drawstring capabilities, that allows all size heads to enjoy it.

I tried the Freetress Creta Girl wig on, on top of the weave I had on at the time…and guess what *wahLAH* it fit!  I took it out of the packaging, and ran my fingers through it to loosen up the curls a bit.  When you first get it, it comes in a jheri curl pattern.  Finger through to your desired curl pattern, but not too much because the less you do to it, the longer it last.  I also went on YouTube to get some style inspiration.  I cut it a bit to frame it to my face.

Maintenance:  so I don’t put any product in it.  With synthetic hair, it can go left real quick.  Also, try to get the wig in your natural color.  Synthetic hair most of the time does not look good in shades of blond.  Also, my hair is not braided underneath to allow me to maintenance my real hair on a daily basis. I take the wig off at night, and I don’t wear it every day.  I toggle between wearing turbans and the Freetress Creta Girl Wig. With full time, 24/7 use…the wig will last one month.  If you rely on it part time like me, you can get about 3 months wear out of it.  I saw one girl on YouTube who rocked hers for a year and it looked good despite the curls being gone.  I paid $26.99 for my wig, but you can find it online much cheaper.

Outside of that, it looks very natural. If it wasn’t for the trade winds in Hawaii, I would leave my hair 100% under the Freetress Creta Girl wig… but since the wind likes to come along and play with my hair, I leave my edges out to cover up the front band of the wig so that it will blend naturally.  I think that covers everything… post your questions in the comments section!

Kitty in Hawaii

P.S. I have worn the wig for about 2 weeks now, and the plug of hair that was pulled out, has started to grown back.  This wig is a blessing because it gave me an option that was both healthy and protective of my real hair.

Tech Review: Definitive Technology SoloStudio Soundbar #AudioFest

Definitively Technology SoloStudio SoundbarDefinitively Technology SoloStudio Soundbar

 

Good Morning House Cats-

Let’s jump right into this review.  The Definitive Technology SoloStudio Soundbar is some type of awesome.  I have never owned an item like this, EVER!  I guess it was time for me to put on my big girl panties and add a stereo system into my home.  No more listening to boom boxes, iPods, and/or computers.  Yes, those items are all fine and good… but when it comes time to entertain guest, I needed something a little more mature to properly reflect my status as a young, professional that entertains.  I am a firm believer that your home is a reflection of you.  From the tidiness to the decor.  This Definitive Technology SoloStudio Soundbar was a welcomed addition in my house.

 

Features:

1. The sleek and compact design.  Ok I am a girl, and true to my nature I am very visual.  The design of this soundbar allows you to make it front and center or virtually undetectable as it can blend like a chameleon into most home decors.  Additionally, the size makes this perfect for small apartments… even better a New York City apartment that allows little space for anything.  When Definitive Technology created this sound bar, they took into consideration the evolution of the television set.  They recognized that most TVs are now thin flat screens.  The brand created the Definitive Technology SoloStudio Soundbar to compliment the aesthetic of today’s flat panel TVs without compromising the sound quality.

2. Bluetooth Enabled:  Please, know that I seriously tested this out.  I synced it to my numerous Android devices which included 2 phones and a tablet.  I was able to control the synthesizer, volume, and music selection from my gadgets.  I thought this was pretty cool.  Even if you don’t have bluetooth enabled devices you can still use the Definitive Technology SoloStudio Soundbar, as it comes with an ergonomic remote control.

3.  You can either mount it to the wall or use it as a stand alone.  This allows for ease in setup as no two situations are the same.  There are keyhole slots that make mounting extremely easy, as well as magnetic feet that works on various surfaces to prevent the bar from sliding.

In previous post I discussed the exceptional sound quality on Definitive Technology products, and this sound bar is no different.  With Definitive, they don’t just create products… they study their customer base, take into consideration the various lifestyles, and create products that seamlessly sync into the lives of the consumer.  As I mentioned above, this would fit perfectly into the New York market.  We need more products like this that take up little space, but can produce the quality of the something triple its size.  The price point of this item is $1199.99, and can be found here for purchase.

 

Tech Review: Definitive Technology Incline Computer Speaker #AudioFest

Definitively Technology Incline Computer Speaker 2

 

Hey House Cats-

So I mentioned in my previous technology review post that I would be reviewing a series of Definitive Technology products.  The first product was the Definitively Technology Sound Cylinder, and today’s review will be on the Definitively Technology Incline Computer Speakers.  I was excited to review these speakers as I am sure we all have owned a crappy pair of computer speakers or two in our lifetime.  Whether it’s at home or work, computer speakers are a necessary evil if you are someone who plays sound files from your office and/or laptop.  Well Definitive Technology has trail blazed the new wave of computer speakers by introducing their inclined series.  No longer will your computer speakers be sterile and just barely audible. In the post, I will discuss what makes Definitive Technology stand out.

In my opinion, after reviewing these speakers I believe that Definitive wanted to create something that created concert level sound quality at your desk.  Think Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall… no I am not just saying this because they sent me the items to review.  I was honestly impressed by the wave of sound that came through the speakers.  These babies packed a punch, and in the event that they didn’t meet my expectations… a port is conveniently located in the back that allows consumers to hook up a subwoofer for an addional boost. Now I can sit up here and state opinions… but after doing a bit of research I learned that Definitive Technology purposely inclined the speakers not just for cosmetics, but to create a type of funnel to channel the sound out and point towards your ears.  The Definitively Technology Incline Computer Speakers are inclined at a 9.5 degree angel. The speakers also host built in amplifiers to turns your office jam session into an exclusive experience that only you are invited to.

 

Definitively Technology Incline Computer Speaker

Another cool feature about the speakers is that you can also connect a USB and headphones. Honestly, I feel like I would never go back to standard computer speakers after this.  This puts me in a whole new class of desktop equipment.  The speakers will run you about $400, but before you clutch you pearls at the price please know that this are an investment item.  I can’t tell you how many times I have purchased $40 speakers that lasted 3-6 months.  The Definitively Technology Incline Computer Speakers are built to accommodate various situations, as well as last a lifetime.

NY2LA: Muppets Most Wanted at the El Capitan #MuppetsMostWanted

Muppets Most Wanted

 

Yesterday I was invited by Team Disney to a screening of Muppets Most Wanted at the historic El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. You all know that I am a HUGE fan of classic Hollywood, and in my humble geek opinion it was an honor to be invited to the Theater because of its rich history.  The El Capitan Theater was opened back on May 3, 1926.  Currently owned by Walt Disney, the studio often screens and premieres movies at this location.  Upon entering the theater, we were greeted by larger than life balconys, and the Wurlitzer Theater organ being played against golden curtains that were pulled back by a rope just like in the movies.  I was so excited to be there!!!!

Now on to the movie… the Muppets Most Wanted movie makes the 12th in the muppets franchise.  Let me start by saying I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as it really took me back to my childhood.  As I watched it, I found myself giggling.  One thing I can say for sure is that the muppets have not lost their humor… and at this point I feel as if they are extended family.  Each and every character reminds me of someone in my like from childhood on through to adulthood.  As an adult, going to see this movie I thought I would be too cool to sit through it…. or so far above a kids movie.  I can honestly say for sure that if at any point in life you enjoyed these characters, you will love them just the same now with a whole new appreciation.

 

muppets-most-wanted

The Muppets Most Wanted movie was about friendship and appreciation…. or at least that was the theme I took away from it.  Without giving too much away, the muppets embark upon a world tour and encounter a few hiccups along the way.  Muppet films are for A-listers; there were so many celebrity cameos.  I guess this is the place where celebs who don’t take themselves too seriously come to be silly.  I walked away having that much more respect for the actors that were apart of this film…. ESPECIALLY Ray Liotta.  I remember him from Hannibal, but here he was singing and dancing.  I cracked up because this seems so far out of his character, but he leaped into it head first and I love him for that.

In conclusion, go see Muppets Most Wanted because you will laugh.  Bring your kids, nieces, nephews, young protegees, or a date.  I walked away with a good energy and you will too!  Thank You again to Team Disney for inviting me out.

Muppets Most Wanted opens on March 21st!

 

 

Tech Review: Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder #AudioFest

Tech Review: Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder #AudioFest

Definitively Technology Sound Cylinder

 

Sound Cylinder $199.98  Retail Value

Hey House Cats-

So I got the opportunity to review several Definitive Technology products and the first one I will be speaking about is the Sound Cylinder.  Over the years I have purchased similar, lower end speakers to boost audio on my various gadgets… nothing ever really panned out.  I also used a few promotional speaker pods given out by Samsung at events, but they only last for a few weeks.  After receiving this, I now see this as graduation day for me into new and improved speaker sound for not just my laptop, but my iPad, tablet, and Android.  Yes, all of the above can produce superior sound quality through the Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder.  From a Blogger’s stand point there are several things I really like about this:

1. The cylinder can operate as a stand alone or attach directly to your devices to save space.  Often times we find ourselves in tight spaces, and I didn’t feel like this crowded my work area.

2. Weight:  It is lighter than it looks.  I am able to throw it in my computer or handbags and not feel the strain on my shoulders.  Size and weight are very important when making purchase decisions.

3. The fact that I can connect it to every single device that I own, which includes my phone!  While on the west coast, I plan to spend lots of time on the beach.  In most cases, I won’t feel like tugging around a laptop… my phone and Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder will do just fine for all my music needs.

4. Sound quality was great considering it was a single unit, as oppose to the two computer speakers that I normally use on my desktop.  I think the sound was definitely better as it came in loud and clear.  I tested it out in a large size living room and had no trouble with bass or clarity of the lyrics.

 

I think we have something here that is worth giving it a try. The Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder works with both Apple and Android products as I did indeed try it out in the video that I posted on Instagram.  My only gripe is the price.  I wish it was slightly lower in cost, but this is where you ask your parents or spouse for allowance to cover the cost, loll.  Outside of the cost, I think this well worth the investment.

Let me know what you think and tell me what features are important to you when purchasing speakers.

Dyson DC59, You Little Animal You!

Light and Mighty is how I describe the  Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.  The digital V6 motor has 350 watts of power and packs a lot of punch, power and pull!  I was a bit spectacle as I was pulling the pieces out of the box “will it really pick up?”  I laughed and smiled knowing the whole time I knew I could trust Dyson.

 

 New Member Of The Family

It was Easy to assemble and I love the fact that it comes with a mountable docking station. I must say, I was a bit concerned when I noticed on the box that it allowed only 26 minutes of power on a single charge.  I thought to myself “this will be great for quick touch ups of our vehicles between car washes, after all its cordless and comes with an additional small brush.”

Once it charged over night I decided to take it on a test spin. I set out to do a little quick clean up round the living room and was quite impressed with the performance. This little animal was able to not only clean the living room but move into the dining room, hallway and bedrooms to touch up the heavy traffic areas of them all.  The speed and  power allows you to move over your surface at a much faster pace,  I’m telling you there was no need to go over the same area more than once it sucks up every speck of dust, dirt and fiber in one quick swoop!  You better not set around when I pull this baby out! Get in its way and it will suck your socks off!!

With all of the conveniences of the Dyson DC59 I don’t believe I will  have to ever use my traditional vacuum again!  Since the Dyson was charged over night I’m not sure of how long it takes to get a complete charge but, what I know for sure is that it’s a pleasure to use and a great addition to my household so I think I’ll call her Hazel!!

New York Technology: Dell XPS 18

Dell XPS 18

 

Dell XPS 18

 

Hey House Cats-

This month’s technology review is the new Dell XPS 18 All-In-One PC which functions as a desktop, tablet, and laptop.  Since I am a blogger, I was extremely excited to test this out as it fits well into the dynamic which is my life.  I need something that can wear different hats, and transition into different units as I move through different environments.  The screen is 18 inches, which is perfect for me when doing graphic design work. One of the programs that I use the most is Photoshop, and the larger the screen the better when editing photos.  Although it is possible to do graphic design work on smaller units, I save all of my Photoshop work for my larger devices to ensure accuracy.

The Dell XPS 18 is perfect for someone who travels for long periods of time… or maybe a student.  This machine is both versatile, and portable.  Some of the critics complained about the battery life, but *shrugs* I tested it out and the Dell XPS 18 lasted just over 4 hours for me- which is about the same as my laptop.   Since we are comparing the Dell XPS 18 to a standard laptop, let me scream from the hill tops that it weighs less than my current laptop!!!!  Actually, the weight of this device alone is the cherry on top of the sundae for me.  Everyone hates lugging around a heavy computer.  I attend a lot of conferences, and often times I want to bring my laptop, but the weight of it stops me from bringing it to a lot of places.  Although it is a little awkward in size, I don’t care whose view is obstructs.  I will take awkward in size and light over heavy and small any day.  I guess when it all boils down, it is a personal choice.

While reviewing the Dell XPS 18, another thing that stood out was the ease in setup.  I think I have owned close to 20 computers in my lifetime.  Maybe it’s the fact that technology is advancing, or it could be that I am just super impatient living in New York.  When I tell you all this was the easiest set up in the history of devices that I have ever owned.  When I first took the Dell XPS 18 out of the box, I had scheduled an hour for set up.  Seriously, maybe an hour was stretching it but there is no way I would have imagined it to take only 8 minutes.  It didn’t ask me a lot of questions… it was simply ready to go.  Hmmm… on one hand I thought maybe it was because it was a review device.  But on the other hand I remember with this particular computer I walked into Best Buy in SoHo and they pulled it from their immediate stock.  Literally this was machine was plug and play.  When reviewing devices I ask myself would my grandparents be able to use this?  Would they grow frustrated?  Additionally, I ask myself what is the minimum grade level that could handle set up.  Honestly, a third grader could set this system up with ease.

So my review model did not come with the docking station, something I am going to buy at a later date.  In the meantime, the tablet has fold out feet that come out 3/4 of the way.  The device did come with a super slim keyboard, and small mouse.  Both pieces are extremely light in weight.  The mouse is so small and light that I am scared I might lose it.  If you purchase this device for a senior or child I would recommend purchasing a mouse that attaches so they won’t lose it.  Also, if you are planning on transporting it around I would purchase a protective case.   The device over all is beautiful and sleek.  Oh one more thing I would purchase is maybe a screen protector and a cloth to remove finger prints since the Dell XPS 18 is touch screen.  One thing I didn’t test out on this device is if I could use it as a graphic board.  I do graphic design work part-time and find myself utilizing Photoshop 80% of the time.  It would be cool if I could use the Dell XPS 18 as a graphic tablet and hook up a stylus for photo extractions.  I am going to Google this to see if it is possible with this machine.  If it does allow this function I will be completely, and infinitely in love with this machine.

The only real negative I see is that it doesn’t have a disc drive.  I am someone who owns 4 computers so it really doesn’t bother me.  However, if you are someone who is going to use this as your main device… the lack of disc drive might be an issue.  It does however have Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, and a webcam.  In regards to memory, it has 8GB 1,600MHZ DDR3 SDRAM.  All in all this is a super sexy machine worthy of a person on the go living in New York City.

Alcohol Review: ABSOLUT ELYX Nights in New York

Alcohol Review: ABSOLUT ELYX Nights in New York

ABSOLUT ELYX3

 

By chance- super blogger, Kimmie of Kitten Lounge, and I ended up at the ABSOLUT ELYX launch event last week.  Initially we were there to try out the upscale eatery A Voce; but ended up stumbling upon this event with several of our media colleagues in attendance.

ABSOLUT ELYX cocktail.

Prior to the event starting, the bartender had persuaded us to try the new ABSOLUT brand.  I, of course was skeptical.  When I was told that ABSOLUT had a new addition, I immediately rolled my eyes and said, “What flavor now?!”  Don’t get me wrong, I am all for flavors and there certainly is a market for them… but much like wedge sneakers, and the Kardashian Family; I have seen them so many times, so many different ways… I have grown numb.

I am not even exaggerating when I tell you all from the first sip of ABSOLUT ELYX, my vagina became awakened, lollll.  I know, I know… that was both extreme and crude! This particular vodka was so velvety smooth or as the PR team describes it, “luxurious”…. I had to counter attack it with something simple and benign, loll.

View from the ABSOLUT ELYX event.
View from the ABSOLUT ELYX event.

Now let’s get down to brass tacks and square nickels… ever since I experienced ABSOLUT ELYX, I have been screaming from the rooftops about it.  Everyone I talk to about it says the same exact thing… or rather questions my credibility when discussing the ABSOLUT brand.  I literally have to pull up pictures and explain to them that this is new, this is different… this is an anomaly of the ABSOLUTE family.    I am a fan of cocktails and the science that goes into them.  ABSOLUT ELYX stood alone.  Although I will still create cocktails around it… this vodka was so smooth, I felt it coasting through my body.

In a competition between ABSOLUT’s main competitors: Kettle One, Grey Goose, Three Olives… ABSOLUT ELYX is so far out of their league, it is not even worth a conversation.  This is Grade A Vodka!  ABSOLUT ELYX set the bar so high; it will be a while before anyone can be considered a serious competitor.  I am beyond impressed with the new addition.  ABSOLUT even created a special bottle design for the ELYX to let you know that they mean business.

“ABSOLUT ELYX is something different. It’s a unique combination of traditional handcraft, copper distillation and cutting-edge design. ABSOLUT ELYX is the result of manual processes, authentic craftsmanship and human supervision through every detail of production. “Only a few people have the skills and knowledge to operate our old copper still. Every handle, knob and lever is adjusted manually. Creating a vodka this way is very time-consuming, but when you taste ABSOLUT ELYX you know it’s worth the effort,” explains Krister Asplund, Master Distiller.

NYC Technology Review: Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier

Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier

Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier

Hey House Cats-

So today I am going to talk about the new appliance that my Best Buy family sent over to try out and review: The Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier :)

The Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier is a modern take on the classic purifier.  This device is for those of us who suffer asthma symptoms, seasonal allergies, and other health related issues due to poor air quality. The Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier not only cleans the air, but acts as a humidifier as well.  *shrugs*  Some of us need all of the help we can get to help improve our breathing and prevent attacks of the most extreme proportions. I cannot count how many times I have fallen victim to the perils of pollen and dust.  I am the only person that I know that suffers from “Pollen Infections” during the Spring Time.  I didn’t start suffering from allergies until I moved to the east coast.  During the month of January, I spent all 31 days sick from with cold and flu.  In addition, I had mucus in my chest that I couldn’t seem to shake.  A friend of mines told me to get a humidifier to help resolve those issues.  Fast forward to now… I have my brand spanking new Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier to help improve air quality in my old, pre-war apartment.

With the arrival of Spring, my best chance of finding a “allergy savior” was the Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier. At a price point of just under $200, this seemed to be the best decision in warding off evil air spirits, loll. I have had the Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier for approximately two weeks now, so it’s not enough time to give it a thorough review.  Spring is just underway so we will see how well it works through the midst of all the high pollen days.  If I don’t have to go to the doctor for my yearly list of prescriptions, I will deem this product a winner.  Now please note: I have never, ever owned a purifier/ humidifier. I am not sure if fireworks are supposed to go off when it begins to work.  I followed the instructions on the packaging and started off with the “clean air setting”.  The machine sits there and doesn’t make a sound.  Occasionally the red lite goes off when it’s time to refill the container with water.  I placed the air purifier in the center of my home, mainly in my working space.  On a  normal day, when I am confined to that perimeter the air starts to run stale.  Now that I have the Air Purifier, I look forward to having amazingly clean air, less sneezing, and congestion.

The Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier captures all of the allergens that can turn your day into a tear jerking, cough invoking, puffy eyed day. Pollen, dander and smoke are all subjected to the purifier’s eliminating capabilities backed by a HEPA certified 2-year filter. Now I know you are like “What the heck is HEPA?” Let’s just say it is the highest standard for filters in the purifying world. The PlasmaCluster ion technology also reduces the onslaught of germs and viruses by attacking such illness causing bacteria. In other words, the Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier helps keep away sickness too! The design is incredibly minimal with a sleek button panel, and in my opinion, is a space saver in relation to how much it does.

The Sharp PlasmaCluster Ion Air Purifier is structured on the Energy Star platform ensuring the protection of both your power and light bill.  This product is for those of you who suffer from allergies and want to enjoy cleaner air.

Pantene truly Relaxed Product Review

 

PANTENE_LOGO_GOLD_#1_V1

 

 

Truly Relaxed and Truly Natural – Two collections From Pantene for healthier hair* no matter what your style. *Vs. non-conditioning shampoo

 

Pantene truly Relaxed 3

So I had the opportunity to work with Pantene through Glam Media to try out and review the Pantene truly Relaxed Hair Products.  Now, please keep in mind…. I am not a professional stylist, so this review will be strictly from your everyday consumer’s perspective.  I am not someone who spends a lot of time looking at ingredients.  My stance is… if it works, I will use it and if it doesn’t I will leave it alone.

Pantene’s products created for relaxed hair was the perfect incentive to get me to try.  I am anti-Natural Hair.  I am someone who enjoys my hair in the relaxed state.  Despite popular belief, I do not apply a lot of heat on my hair..  I think I use the flatirons maybe once a week.  Due to the fact that I wear my hair in that state… I spend a lot of time in the shop getting my hair deep conditioned.  My hair needs a lot of moisture!  Pantene created products that provide just enough moisture without weighing you hair down.

The first Pantene truly Relaxed product that I tried was the Light Moisture Shampoo.  The first step was to test it out on my fingers as I do with any product I am trying for the first time.  I like to gauge the consistency.  I want to know if its thin, too thick, or just right.  I smell it.  I wash it off my fingers and see what type of film it leaves behind.  Based on that analysis, I decide if I am going to move forward with the product. The Pantene truly Relaxed Light Moisture Shampoo had a medium consistency, and when washed away didn’t leave my fingers dry or sticky.  I felt a light moisture left behind.  Additionally, the scent was very light.   Based off of those findings, I decided to give it a try.  I washed my hair 2-3 times.  The end result proved to match the result of my initial test.  Although, it did it’s job as a shampoo… I am not sure if it stood out amongst it’s competitors.  This was just “ok” for me.

Next, I tried the Pantene truly Relaxed Conditioner.  I repeated the finger test for this one, and my toes started to tingle in a good one.  This conditioner had just the right amount of moisture in it to bring my sometimes dull and dry hair back to life.  I was especially excited to try this one out, and I was not disappointed!!!  The conditioner was my absolute favorite out of the 3 products.  My hair had new life after trying it.  I would definitely both recommend this product, and keep it as a staple in my bathroom for future use.

The 3rd and final product was the Pantene truly Relaxed Oil Creme Moisturizer.  After conducting my test by applying a dab on my fingers and rubbing them together… I was a little concerned about putting this on my hair.  It was a little thick for my liking.  I did test it on my hair VERY SPARINGLY, and the short term result came out good.   However, this is a product that is suggested to be used everyday.  For African American hair- due to the fact that we wash our hair less frequently than other races… I wouldn’t feel comfortable using this everyday due to its heaviness, and the ingredients in it.  The Pantene truly Relaxed Oil Creme Moisturizer would be perfect for other races who wash their hair on an everyday basis.

In conclusion, the final result came out GREAT!!!!  Please, watch the above video and see the various stages and tell me what you think.  The below pictures are the final result  :)
