Chicago: A City With Something For Everyone...


Chicago is one of our favorite cities. It always feels like a home away from home, and you always leave wanting more but you are satisfied at the same time. There is literally something for everyone. You can visit fabulous restaurants, stay at gorgeous hotels, enjoy world-class museums or their fabulous aquarium, be entertained by spectacular animals at the Lincoln Park Zoo, go to a basketball, football or baseball game, do some intense shopping, and go to fantastic shows at the theater. Or, if you're more of a fitness enthusiast you can go for a jog in their wonderful parks, join in on a volleyball game, or grab a bike and sightsee while getting exercise. You can grab a Segway and tour parts of the city, hang out at the beach on Lake Michigan, take an Architecture tour on the river, or just chill and have a drink. There's something for every taste, and budget! Make sure Chicago is on your list of places to visit this year!

Beaver Creek, Colorado: Paradise In Snow...

We have always spent winter vacations (skiing, snowboarding, tubing) on the East Coast. Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. They were all fabulous in their own ways. We kept hearing about Colorado and how incredible the skiing was there. Deciding where to spend your cherished winter vacation week each year is an important decision so, after doing lots of research and asking lots of questions, the Beaver Creek seemed to hit the nail on the head for our taste. Nothing prepared us for the stunning and mindblowing scenery that we were about to embark on. From the drive out of Denver through spectacular mountains to our destination, Beaver Creek, our eyes never left the windows because there was always something beautiful to look at. It was everything we had hoped it would be and so much more. It's going to be pretty difficult to go back to the tiny ski resorts and short runs on the East Coast, that's for sure!

Iceland: The Spectacular Land Of Fire And Ice...


After returning from my trip to Iceland, and talking to people about it, the first thing I am usually asked is “I've heard nothing but great things, and I have always wanted to go. Should I?” My response is always, "I would recommend this country to anyone and everyone. It was the most naturally-beautiful location I have ever been to." The best way to describe it is “other-worldly." From the landscapes that change every 30 minutes as you are driving, to the gorgeous, smaller towns, to the black sand beaches, glaciers, ice caves, volcanoes, lava tubes, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic mountains, you know you are somewhere pretty special. Pair it with the fact that the people of Iceland are the most authentically wholesome people I have been around, and you have what is perfection.

ResQ: They Put Lifesaving Tools In Your Own Hands...

Laurent Colasses came out with the LifeHammer in the late nineties. He then wanted to manufacture an accessible and compact car escape tool to protect against vehicular entrapment situations. Introducing resqme.

With the resqme tool drivers can be confident that they will be able to cut through seat belts and break car windows in various auto accident situations.

Today over 4 million drivers are driving with more peace of mind. Proudly made in the United States, the award-winning resqme tool is now offering peace of mind to drivers all over the globe.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: The Best Eyebrow and Contour Kits Available!

Global cosmetics brand Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded in 1997 by Romanian-born beauty entrepreneur Anastasia Soare. Rooted in the science of sacred geometry, the company formulates, manufactures, and markets prestige cosmetics for a passionately informed “prosumer” audience. Dubbed the “people’s make-up brand,” ABH has cultivated an industry-unique relationship with its core customer, focused on product education and responsiveness in delivering the “ultimate polished look” for which the brand is known.

ABH Founder and CEO Anastasia Soare was first to introduce “brow-shaping” to salons in the US based on her patented “Golden Ratio” method. She is widely credited for fueling the multimillion-dollar business that now surrounds the category. Popularized through Soare’s customer relationships with many of the world’s most recognizable faces—Oprah, Naomi Campbell, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, and Penelope Cruz, to name a few—the “brow revolution” she ignited has become a landmark contribution to beauty history.

ABH’s trailblazing legacy continues with expansion beyond brow products and services. In 2014, the company broke from tradition to debut its new category of professional make-up direct-to-consumer in a “promote to inspire” social media campaign, cultivating a staggeringly successful relationship with influencers in the digital sphere. ABH has since received industry-wide recognition for digital innovation and numerous accolades for cutting-edge product trends such as the category first Contour Palette and cult classic Liquid Lipstick.

ABH cosmetics are available at anastasiabeverlyhills.com, Sephora, Macy’s, ULTA, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, and select retailers in over 25 countries including Saudi Arabia, Australia, Sweden, Romania and France. ABH is committed to the highest standards in product testing, formulation, new product development, and meeting the demands of its uniquely engaged customer.
