Hertz Introduces The Porsche Macan Turbo To Its Dream Cars Collection

Hertz has added the Porsche Macan Turbo to its Dream Cars collection, a line of ultra-high-end performance vehicles. This all-new luxury crossover SUV from Porsche joins other Porsche models available from Hertz, including the 911, Panamera, Cayenne, Boxster and Cayman. Hertz's exclusive Dream Cars collection also includes luxury models from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar and more.

"With the expansion of Hertz Dream Cars to include the turbo variant of this extremely popular, bold crossover SUV, we are bringing customers the best options available in luxury cars," said Tom Frese, Senior Vice President, Fleet and Procurement.

Available in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and Denver airports, the Macan Turbo blends everyday usability with Porsche's renowned sports-car heritage and feel.

European Wax Center's Head to Toe Summer Body Care Tips

Last week I celebrated my birthday doing nothing too extravagant like i'm so accustomed to doing. But I did make a decision to check off at least one thing on my bucket list and it was to get a Brazilian Wax, yikes! So my friends at European Wax Center invited me to experience something that I've always been terrified of. I visited the Hollywood, FL location on Sheridan Street and it was such a wonderful and funny experience. The staff was absolutely welcoming and my Wax Expert was amazing by having me at ease.

Beauty expert at European Wax Center, Melanie Gilliland, has traveled around the country sharing her expertise for internal corporate development as well as industry events/expos and European Wax Center for a Fun, Fabulous & Carefree Season!

"Summer is one of my favorite seasons! What’s not to love, sunshine and fresh air? While many of us enjoy the outdoors, we also dread some of the beauty “must-dos” that come with the season, from dieting to revitalizing dull complexions and tidying up the hair down there. But getting glam in time for summer doesn’t have to be a hassle!" says Melanie. 

Follow this no sweat guide to revealing beautiful skin from head to toe, for the ultimate summer glow with the help of European Wax Center.

·         Goddess Glow: Beauty starts from the inside out. There is no need to go on an intense diet or cleanse, summer is all about fun and setting such rigid restrictions can be uninspiring and counterproductive. Instead, just incorporate more fruits and veggies to your meals and substitute sodas and juices with water. Drink plenty of water!  In the hot weather you’ll actually crave these eats and H20 since they are refreshing.  Not only will they provide hydrating relief, but when you incorporate these regularly into your diet you’ll notice a more luminous glow and BONUS: reduced bloating.

·         Tidy Up: Say farewell to the hair down there with a bikini wax. A bikini wax ensures you’re a smooth sight and lets you feel free to bare it all at the beach or any other setting that requires a little less attire. Be sure to reveal the beautiful skin around other areas of the body which are usually undercover like you’re under arms and legs. For a full list of services visit:

·         Show Off Those Curves: Hit the beach and strut your stuff! Go roller blading, enjoy a bike ride, just embrace your body and get active. Exercise releases toxins, again enhancing beautiful skin and it puts you in a good mood. When you feel good, your confidence shines through allowing you to have a fun, fabulous and carefree season.

·         Share “Summer Lovin”: This summer when you head to EWC to get glam, all first time visitors get a complimentary wax and even if it’s not your first time, anytime you share the “Summer Lovin” by referring a guest, you get $5 off your next service. They say sharing is caring, so what are you waiting for? Go get your summer waxing on!

Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary Brazilian wax in exchange for this blog post. BUT all opinions are based off of my own experience.

#TechTuesday | GoPro Launches HERO4 Session Camera

GoPro, Inc., enabler of some of today's most engaging content, is proud to announce HERO4 Session, the smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro yet.  50% smaller and 40% lighter than GoPro's best-selling HERO4 Black and Silver cameras, HERO4 Session packs GoPro's Emmy® Award-winning image quality and performance into an exciting new low-profile form factor. HERO4 Session benefits from a durable waterproof design that eliminates the need for a separate housing and features simple one-button control to make capturing immersive photos and video quicker and more convenient than ever before. HERO4 Session is compatible with existing GoPro mounts and will retail for $399.99 MSRP at authorized GoPro retailers around the world and on beginning July 12, 2015

HERO4 Session captures GoPro-quality 1080p60, 720p100 and 1440p30 video along with eight megapixel photos in Single, Burst and Time Lapse modes. It features many of the same innovative features found in GoPro's best-selling HERO4 Black and Silver cameras, including SuperView™, Protune and Auto Low Light recording modes. An expanded set of controls and settings can be accessed when using the GoPro App or Smart Remote.

Operating HERO4 Session is very simple. A short press of the shutter button quickly powers the camera on and video recording begins automatically. A long press of the shutter button powers the camera on and triggers Time Lapse photo capture. Press the shutter button again to save video or photo content and power the camera off. This simple one button design drastically improves the speed and convenience of capturing life moments as they happen.

HERO4 Session is built to GoPro's famous rugged standards and is waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters). It features a sleek frame mounting system that is compatible with GoPro's expansive array of mounts. An innovative dual microphone system dynamically switches sound recording between microphones to reduce wind noise during activities. Audio performance during water-based activities has been dramatically improved thanks to HERO4 Session's waterproof design that eliminates the need for a separate waterhousing, which can often muffle sounds.

HERO4 Session    $399.99 MSRP

7 Sizzling Tips to Save Money and Energy this Summer

Summer is officially here and with the heat comes a higher electric bill especially in Florida. As the days get longer and hotter, air conditioners need to run longer to keep things cool. In fact, A/C units can run up to twice as long in the summer as compared to cooler months, accounting for more than half of the electric bill.

According to Florida Power and Light Energy Expert, Tiffany Spence, "There is a seasonal difference in customer bills. Summer bills are always higher because we're all using more electricity. Not only is the sun out in full force, but the kids are out of school and guests are coming to town. There is a lot of activity in our homes." 

While Florida Power & Light customers already have typical bills that are the lowest in the state and 30 percent below the national average, there are easy ways to help make them even lower. So before firing up the fireworks this July 4th holiday, try these seven tips to help save energy and money:
  1. Go outside: Cook using an outdoor grill instead of the oven to keep the kitchen cool.
  2. Use smaller appliances: If cooking inside, do it with a toaster oven, microwave or crock pot. These smaller appliances use less energy than the oven and add less heat to the kitchen.
  3. Consider cold snacks: When it's hot outside, a cold alternative such as sandwiches, vegetables or fruit make for delicious snacks without having to use the oven.
  4. Grab in bulk: Reduce the amount of cold air escaping from the fridge by opening the door once to get all necessary items.
  5. Fill it up: Run the dishwasher with a full load and use the air dry option, if available.
  6. Turn it off: When leaving to watch a parade or fireworks, remember to turn off lights and fans. Fans only keep people cool, not rooms, so if you're not at home, there's no reason to run them.
  7. Turn it up: Turn the thermostat up to 82 degrees or higher if you're traveling for the long weekend. And remember to close window blinds and shades to block out the sun's heat.
