* Nina Shoes exhibited some of their best sellers and new heels (even a pair that lights up!) This brand is not only beautiful and innovative, but can you create your own line of shoes by logging into the Design Your Own Shoe section (how cool is that?) Need a little “shoe lust” in your life? Sit back, observe and drool….
* My Skin.com: Have you ever been overwhelmed by the endless array of skincare products that bombard you in pharmacies, department stores, and even in advertisements on TV? Which is best for your skin and will alleviate your skin woes?Â Fortunately for you, MySkin.com has the fix, by compiling years of experience from skin specialists and studies to create individualized, unbiased skin recommendations based on your “Skin Profile”.Â Your Skin Profile is composed of parameters including genetics, age, ethnicity, skin tone, and lifestyle organized by an advanced scientific algorithm. (What does that mean? It’s like a dermatologist built into your computer).
Seem too good to be true?Â It isnâ€™t!Â I set up an account right there in under 10 minutes. The process was simple and asked straightforward questions regarding your skin characteristics, woes and what products you use.Â Then the JLM Engine provided free product recommendations.Â I found a list of the best products for my skin organized by category (cleanser, toner, treatment, and more.). The website also allows you to create daily journal entries in order keep track of what products you are using, how your skin is feeling and the weather that day (could it be any better?)
* Smartbox: Need to find the perfect gift for your best friend, parent, or spouse (but donâ€™t want to give an ordinary gift card?) Enter the Smartbox: the gift of a lifetime.
