Luxetips Automobiles! 2015 Toyota Camry SE Hybrid: Miles and Miles Per Gallon

Luxetips Automobiles! 2015 Toyota Camry SE Hybrid: Miles and Miles Per Gallon

Hello Divas!

Always look at the glass half full, not half empty!

IMG_1132   

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to review the new 2015 Toyota Camry SE Hybrid.  

IMG_1136IMG_1130

This car has ample space, innovative technology and more importantly an mpg of over 514 miles to the gallon. Wowza!

Design

The new Toyota Camry SE Hybrid comes with a new sporty and sleek design.  The new model also includes a mesh grille, dark chrome trim, a spoiler, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. 

The interior received a bit of an upgrade too!  The cloth leather seats are trimmed in leather.  The interior is super spacious.  Five large adults can easily fit in the vehicle.  The luxe kiddies had ample leg space and there was enough space for them to place their book bags and other “stuff” either on the floor or in between them on the seats.  Lastly, the moonroof is a nice addition.  All passengers can enjoy the sunshine when this large moonroof is open.  

The cargo space in the trunk is perfect.  As you can see here, I was able to fit groceries and baseball gear into the car with ease.  Priceless.

Technology

The 2015 Camry SE Hybrid comes standard with the Entune® App Suite.  With this feature, you can access Pandora® and iHeartRadio for music, make restaurant reservations with OpenTable, and buy movie tickets with MovieTickets.com. Plus, get sports scores, stocks, traffic and weather — even fuel prices.  I absolutely loved this feature.  It was so easy to use and kept me informed and up to date on traffic and weather in Atlanta.  This was key, because there was heavy rains and it helped me avoid problem areas.

The Campry SE Hybrid also comes with Bluetooth hands-free connectivity which syncs with your multi-media devices and phone with ease.  

Hybrid Performance and Fuel Economy

Camry Hybrid knows how to balance power for fuel efficiency. With Hybrid Synergy Drive®, the combined output of both the gas and electric motors is an impressive 200 hp. And because of its advanced design, lightweight materials and refined aerodynamics, you can go farther for less.

And let me tell you how far you can go.  This vehicle gets over 514 miles per gallon. Done and done.  I can literally drive this vehicle from Atlanta to West Palm Beach one one tank of gas.  Looove it!  Just imagine how much money you can save purchasing gas if you buy this vehicle.  It is definitely a must buy!

The new 2015 Camry SE Hybrid retails starting at $27, 995.

Toodles!

Luxetips Beauty! Loving My New Hair Style

Luxetips Beauty! Loving My New Hair Style

Hello Divas!

Start each new day with thankfulness and a positive attitude.

22584_10152696450977617_6579071875970478027_n

I have a new hair style and I am loving it!

For the past 3 months, I have been wearing my hair in a deep side-swept bob and it has been my most complimented hairstyle to date.  

10430416_926236804066638_4633765703988928596_n

I tend to wear my hair in different styles.  My usual go to style is a part down the middle with lots of body.  However, I am known to wear hair pieces for volume and length, a tight pulled back bun or crown braids. 

 10376713_10152090440462617_9015174013139707077_n10525977_10152197640907617_7440916872019366063_n

I decided to try a deep side-swept bomb because I had to get my hair cut due to excessive heat damage.  Due to the new cut and look, my hair has been super healthy, shiny and bouncy.  Score!

10915233_921591474531171_3710868448791033911_n-1

The new look gets so much attention it is addictive. LOL!  Everyone compliments the style and comments how it looks so good on me.  Plus I get lots of attention from men.  So I can’t complain.  I love it!

More importantly, my hair is super healthy.  Because the new style is easy to manage and maintain, I don’t need to use flat irons as much.  I can run the flat iron through my hair once or twice a week and the style will keep.  Another way I maintain this style is by sleeping on my silk pillowcase and massaging my scalp 3 x per week with organic coconut oil.  If you don’t know, organic coconut oil helps stimulate hair growth.

And speaking of hair growth, Hairfinity vitamins are also known to promote strong locks and hair growth.  Hairfinity Hair Vitamins are all the rage among celebrities as a tried and true vitamin supplement that helps women achieve healthy hair.

Hairfinity Hair Vitamins is a natural vitamin complex formulated with essential vitamins and nutrients for healthy hair. Hairfinity Hair Vitamins encourages healthy hair growth by nourishing hair from the inside out, with a blend of natural ingredients that has been proven to promote longer, thicker and stronger locks.

It can’t be denied that The Kardashians have gorgeous hair and they are fans of Hairfinity Hair Vitamins.  They love Hairfinity vitamins so much, the product will actually make an appearance on their April 26th episode. 

Hairfinity will host a re-cap Twitter Party on April 26th at 10p.m est after the airing of The Kardashians. 

Be sure to check out Hairfinity on The Kardashians and join the Twitter party on April 26th at 10pm.  It should be a fun party!

Luxetips Beauty! Exclusive Cynthia Rowley Beauty + Birchbox

Hello Divas!

I hope you are having a fantabulous week!

One of my favorite brands is Cynthia Rowley.  When I first started working as a lawyer in New York, my first designer purchases were from Cynthia Rowley.  I purchase one of her signature dresses and a fab pair of Jackie-O style shades.  Memories!

Cynthia Rowley beauty just launched two exclusive beauty products for Birchbox.com.  The On The Go Multi Blush & Bronzer Duo and the Beauty Brightening Illuminator. 

crb launches

These products are such a hot item, they have already been wait listed. Wowza!

The On The Go Multi Blush & Bronzer has a “cream to powder” finish.  They blend into skin flawlessly without the stickiness of most cream products or the dryness of powder products. In true Cynthia Rowley fashion, both sticks are multi-purpose: The matte pink blush can add a pop of color to your cheekbones or lips and the bronzer has just a hint of shimmer to create the perfect sunkissed glow on cheeks or eyes.  It retails for $24.

The Beauty Brightening Illuminator works for all skin tones and can be layered to achieve the perfect glow that fits your style. The light, water-based formula easily blends into skin without feeling sticky. It retails for $28.

Both products can be purchased on Birchbox.com.

Hello Divas!

I am back from a short hiatus.  Me and the luxe kiddies have been on Spring Break and we had a ball.

Screen Shot 2015-04-16 at 12.24.36 PM

One of my favorite New York department stores is Henri Bendel.  When I lived in New York, a good friend’s sister worked with Henri Bendel’s corporate office and she introduced me to the store.  It is truly a unique department store.  You will find items at Henri Bendel that you will not find anywhere else.  Plus the New York store is so luxe!

Henri Bendel just launched Suite 712 Eau de Parfum.  This is the second scent launched by Henri Bendel since the launch of their first signature scent, Un Peu d’Elle, in 1905.  Henri Bendel’s has the distinction of being one of the first American luxury designers to launch a signature scent. 

Via Henri Benel,

Suite 712 embodies New York’s sophisticated influence and understated extravagance.  

What a perfect description of New York!  The notes of the scent are as follows:

Top notes: Italian Bergamot, Sparking Mandarin Blossom, Quince

Mid:  Blue Freesia, Iris, Hedione

Dry:  Suede, White Sandalwood, Cashmere Musk.

Suite 712 eau de parfum retails for $98 for a 3.4 fl oz bottle and it will be available in-store and online at www.henribendel.com on May 1, 2015.

I love parfum and can’t wait to try this one!
