Win a Sony Cyber-Shot! Posted by Laura Iriarte

Who wants to win it? :)

What takes iSweep Panoramic photos? What has 10.2 Mega pixels, a 25 mm wide-angle lens, 3.5″ Xtra Fine LCD and Full HD movie capabilities? The Sony Cyber-Shot – that’s what!

Where can you get it you ask? Well, you could get it here.

Orrr…you could win one from ME! :) I am lucky enough to have a friend, Sukhjit, who works for Sony and was instrumental in letting me provide this give-a-way for you. :)

Those of you who know me, know I love to take pictures and love cameras, and this is hard for me to part with to be honest. I *so* want to open the box…but I won’t. Because, this camera is going to a very special person. Someone who will love it and cherish it and use it! Is it going to be you? :)

Taylor Swift herself appears in the new Sony commercials promoting the Sony Cyber-Shot! Here it is below if you haven’t seen them yet!

First a little behind the scenes!

Now for the commercial!

I just love Taylor Swift, and so does my daughter, Alexandra. Neither of us are traditional fans of country music, but her songs and sincerity really speaks to our hearts.

I’ve thought long and hard and well, you’re going to have to impress me with your comments…this baby retails at $399.00! So, what I would love to hear is:

1. What is your favorite Taylor Swift song?
2. Why do you like it?

Optionally you may karaoke the song! I may give extra points! (Doesn’t matter if you’re good or bad, as long as you’re sincere!) To post a karaoke song you will need to post the video on another site (youtube, vimeo, viddler, stickcam, etc) and then post the link to the video in the comment section.

The contest will run for one week, from Monday, July 5, 2010 through Sunday, July 11, 2010. It will end at midnight, Pacific standard time on Sunday, July 11, 2010. Winner will be chosen at my discretion based on their comment. The prize will be mailed or delivered to the winner within two weeks.

This should be fun! :)

UPDATE: A winner has been chosen! It was truly a hard choice for me as some of the comments were quite heartfelt, but…drumroll please! Congratulations to Brianna Layfield! I felt Brianna went above and beyond, being the only person to actually step up to the karaoke challenge! Also, Brianna not only sang, she also played the song acoustically! Congratulations again Brianna! Love your pink guitar!

iPhone 4 Eve Posted by Laura Iriarte

iPhone 4 Line

June 23, 2010 – It’s iPhone 4 Eve, and all around the country, or maybe world, people are lining up and preparing to camp out to be the first or at least the front of the line when the Apple store doors open at 7 A.M. on Thursday, June 24, 2010.

What’s all this fuss about? Why are people willing to go without sleep and brave the weather to stand in line all night, hoping to be one of the chosen to receive one of the first iPhone 4′s? Well Apple itself says, “The future is in the details.” These details include special glass, the highest-resolution phone screen ever, a stainless steel band created with Apples *own* alloy, A powerful power-efficient A4 processor that lets you perform multiple tasks while maximizing battery life, A gyroscope plus accelerometer for advanced motion sensing to dramatically improve gaming capabilities, two microphones to minimize excess background noise, and all are contained in a 9.3 millimeters thin case, making it the world’s thinnest smartphone!

Now I left out the feature *I’m* most excited about – the camera! The new camera gives you 5-megapixel photos, and now we even have an LED light for flash or video illumination! Is that exciting or what??? There is even a camera screen on the front of the phone for those self-portraits, so that you can actually see if you’re in frame and get it right the first time! They even mention it can be used for FaceTime calls and I’m not really sure what that is, but it sounds like a video chat!

I visited the Emoryville, CA Apple Store tonight to see a Genius about my current iPhone. He was able to help me immediately and I was in and out of the store in about 15 minutes. I asked my Genius about the iPhone 4 and they said they were preparing for it and were going to open the doors at 7 A.M. He said that they were not going to be offering any Genius help in the store tomorrow due to the iPhone 4 frenzy, but gave me info how to schedule an additional appointment if I needed one. He mentioned that Bay Street is a private street and that people were not going to be allowed to line up or camp out overnight in front of the store, that the security guards wouldn’t allow it. This did not seem to deter the five souls standing in line as I left. One man told me that if they made them leave, that he would return at 3 A.M., he said he was staying at a hotel nearby and that it wouldn’t be a problem for him.

Am I going to stand in line? Well, no. Even though I’m excited for the new iPhone 4 and want one badly, I have a AT&T contract that is expiring in October, so I may as well wait for that and give them a couple of months to work the bugs out!

I truly *love* my current iPhone. It is almost like a friend to me. I seriously had no concept of how much I would love it until I had it. I’m constantly checking my Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, texts, SMS messages, playing games when I’m bored, checking voicemails, calling friends…with just a touch! The smartphone capabilities make it just like carrying around a mini computer! It’s all that and a bag of chips! And, I can’t wait to see all the fun I’m going to have with the new iPhone 4! (Especially the CAMERA!!!)

So what about you? Are you going to wait in line? :)

Trendy Lime’s SATC Party & Premiere Posted by Laura Iriarte

May 27, 2010 – Trendy Lime’s latest event was the biggest girl’s night out party I’ve ever seen!

I went with my dear friend and fellow SATC fan Alix!

We arrived at Circa nighclub and were greeted at the door by Liana Burtsava who was wearing the tiniest most adorable dress! She gave us a goodie bag and a drink ticket to get us started.

All the ladies were dressed from head-to toe, especially the toes~the shoes I saw that night were amazing!

Inside Circa we were treated with specialty drinks, a menu created just for our event! TV screens located everywhere played episodes of Sex and the City. Upstairs were mini makeovers or touch ups by BellaPelle Skin Studio (I desperately needed some loose powder!), and hand massages by Jurlique, featuring all natural skin products from Austrailia.

After we partied and were pampered we headed down the street a couple of blocks to the Lee Neighborhood Theatre where we watched Sex and the City 2.

The movie was, to quote my friend Mary Ann(@xluck), “exactly what it should be- ridiculous, indulgent, fun!!”

To see more of my pictures from the night, please visit my flickr photostream: here.

Trendy Lime‘s next upcoming event is JegLag on June 11, 2010.
