New App Alert | PARTYOLOGY

Partyology ( launched yesterday and it offers the first mobile app to design, plan, and shop for a party from start to finish, combining both inspiration and retail shopping in one place. Now available on iOS and soon-to-be available for Android users, Partyology helps users discover and save the best creative party ideas from across the web, and in a flash find and purchase unique party goods for every type of get-together. Instead of long-drawn-out searching through websites and stores to create and shop for the party you want, Partyology is your one-stop single app to do it all. 

Partyology was not created by party planners, but rather by two busy women with demanding careers, families, and social calendars who craved an easier way to plan everything from major parties to simple get-togethers. 

“There are so many events that take place over the course of a year – whether bridal or baby showers, kids’ birthdays or retirement celebrations, holiday gatherings or simple dinner parties,” said Dr. Barbara Edelstein, co-founder of Partyology and a leading women’s radiologist in New York City. 

Partyology finds and categorizes the best content from around the web, providing users with a clean, image-driven layout to effortlessly scroll through and find anything they need. The app includes thousands of images for party themes, d├ęcor, favors, flowers, food, cocktails, and more – with ready-to-buy invitations, decorations, party snacks and desserts and an incredible, curated array of party supplies from top retail partners. Easily search for specific keywords, or filter images by category, gender, type of party, and more. Partyology users can set up a personal profile and create multiple collections to easily save and organize ideas by event. Every image can also be made a favorite, and shared via text, email, or social media.  

Partyology is the first app to combine shopping and inspiration! The app has two big differentiators from other apps – the content you see has been curated by a team looking for party-specific photos in a variety of party-specific and themed categories. With other apps searching, there are often a few odd-ball images that don’t always match your search, but Partyology takes the time to only show you items related to your specific party search. Only Partyology’s team can add new content, so you only get the best results! Additionally, and the biggest differentiator, is the one-click purchasable content! Anything with a pink shopping cart is for sale! Partyology wants to make sure that you see items to inspire the look of your party, along with items to purchase to make that party a reality – all in one location!

Partyology is now available, free in the iTunes store ( For more information, please visit

Lane Bryant Debuts #ImNoAngel Campaign

Being a curvy woman, I'm excited to see campaign's like this that celebrates women of all shapes and sizes. Lane Bryant, the nation's leader in fashion for women sizes 14 to 28, is excited to announce the brand's revolutionary Spring Campaign, #ImNoAngel. Debuting nationwide today, the #ImNoAngel movement invites the world to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes by redefining society's traditional notion of sexy with a powerful core message: ALL women are sexy

The provocative #ImNoAngel campaign conceptualized by creative agency- Laird+Partners, kicks off with a series of TV advertisements and photographs taken by famed photographer Cass Bird, starring top industry models Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring, Candice Huffine, Victoria Lee, Justine Legault and Elly Mayday, dressed in the brand's incredibly sexy, beautifully designed Cacique lingerie. Styled with a naturalistic approach by Kathryn Neale, each image personifies the notion that sexy doesn't come in one form; sexy is unique, real, and personal for each and every woman. 

The #ImNoAngel hashtag was created as a headline provoking all to come together in redefining the ideals of sexy with the hopes of igniting a significant revolution. In conjunction with the national advertising campaign, Lane Bryant invites anyone and everyone to join in the movement with a selfie that showcases their own idea of sexy. Using "#ImNoAngel" - written in lipstick on a mirror- all are encouraged to share their images across the brand's social media channels as well as through their own personal channels. 

"Our '#ImNoAngel' campaign is designed to empower ALL women to love every part of herself. Lane Bryant firmly believes that she is sexy and we want to encourage her to confidently show it, in her own way," said Lane Bryant CEO and President, Linda Heasley.

Last week my children enjoyed their Spring Break at Swim Camp where they were given swim lessons for the entire week. Although spending seven days in a swimming for several hours was lots of fun for them, I knew the week long exposure to chlorine would irritate their sensitive skin. 

A couple of months ago, I was sent a sample of Swim Spray to review and this was the perfect time to try it out. I gave the bottle to my kids camp instructors and provided them directions on how to use it and to also give me feedback everyday. So once the kids were finished with their lessons, the camp instructor had them to rinse the chlorine off and then she sprayed each of my kids with the spray directly on their skin and hair. The instructions says to rinse or shampoo Swim Spray right after spreading all over the body but because the kids were in swim camp, they weren't able to shower until a couple of hours afterwards. I thought that not being able to immediately shower with the product still on their skin would irritate them but it still left my kids with smooth skin and soft hair especially since my twin girls have natural long hair. AND they didn't smell like chlorine when I picked them up which was a bonus. 

After using this product for a week I still wanted to know why it worked so well. Swim Spray is 100% NATURAL with only 2 ingredients: Water and several forms of Vitamin C. I'm really pleased that this product doesnt have a list of added ingredients that I can't pronounce. 

I highly recommend purchasing Swim Spray especially since the summer is approaching. For more information visit 

Disclosure: I received a free bottle of Swim Spray in exchange for writing a review on The Buzz Connect. Although I received it for free, ALL opinions are my own.

[Photo Recap] The South Beach Wine and Food Festival Weekend

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the South Beach Wine and Food Festival presented by Food and Wine. For weeks I've anticipated going to this event and I was highly satisfied with everything that was experienced.  

On Saturday, I took the family to "Fun and Fit" sponsored by Carnival featuring Goya Kidz Kitchen at Jungle Island in Miami, FL. It was also our first time going to Jungle Island so it was a bonus. My children really enjoyed seeing the different animals and the many activities that Fun and Fit had to offer. The many healthy tasting booth's were very tasty as well.
