- Tired of having to repeat yourself? Motorola has upped things a notch for us busy professionals with its new 4-mic Motorola Whisper wireless hands-free phone headset. I tried it and loved it! I immediately experienced crystal clear communications making me feel efficient and dynamic. Its premier audio quality, retractable boom mic, comfortable fit, 6-hour battery life and up to 300’ gives me the confidence to take important calls anytime, anywhere. Set up is super simple and it couldn’t be easier to use. Of course, I fell for Motorola Whisper’s fashionable, sleek silver and modern design too. Plus, it’s got a cool carrying case. The Whisper has found a home in my war chest of professional tools that have both beautiful style and function.

- Say goodbye to perspiration stains, expensive dry cleaning bills and underarm yellowing damage. Longtime friends, Lena Dianda and Ashleigh Frankel of SaxtonChayse collaborated to create Tickled Pink, a discreet yet stylish, stretchable undergarment with absorbent (and comfortable) ‘pit pads’. You don’t need to suffer from hyperhidrosis to find its value. First, I gave its strength a test run and wore it during one of my sweaty workouts. The results were ideal. Everything was drenched including the ‘pit pads’, but the exterior portion underneath my arms was completely dry. Then it was time to actually wear it in my frenzied real life. Since the fabric is luxuriously lightweight and the design is flattering, I wore my undergarment slightly exposed underneath one of my gorgeous, but expensive silk blouses to protect it on a particularly busy and stressful workday. Another favorable success! Tickled Pink is available in a variety of colors and sizes.
