… coolest gadgets of 2013

Add a comment

It’s a New Year, and along with that comes unbelievably cool technology introduced in 2013.  Keeping up with technology is very similar to keeping up with fashion, trends are always changing and you have to “be in the know”. Futuristic and fabulous, these gadgets will have you gasping for more.

 

For the Technology & Social Media Obssessed: Futuristic Specs

These models busted out Google’s new tech on the runway during NYFW! AH-mazing

Google has teamed up with a company called Vuzix creating futuristic specs for people who can’t bear not to be connected.

 More of a headset than a pair of spectacles, the Vuzix projects a small colour image in front of your eye, runs the Android operating system and connects via Bluetooth to your phone. The screen could show you text messages, emails or map directions.

What this device’s killer app will turn out to be is anyone’s guess. It could, for instance, use face recognition to remind you of fellow partygoers’ names, their CVs and their latest Facebook status updates and tweets – never be stuck for small talk again!

When can I buy one? Summer 2013 for under $500.

For the Tree Huger/Energy Saver: The Nest

The “nest” was created by Tony Fadell, a man that worked for Apple Inc for years, and actually helped Steve Jobs created the ipod.

This little device is an at  home “learning thermostat” that looks supper chic. Its screen is slightly domed glass; its barrel has a mirror finish that reflects your wall. Its color screen glows orange when it’s heating, blue when it’s cooling; it turns on when you approach it, and discreetly goes dark when nobody’s nearby.

The Nest has Wi-Fi, so it’s online. It can download software updates. You can program it on a Web site.

You can also use a free iPhone or Android app, from anywhere you happen to be, to see the current temperature and change it — to warm up the house before you arrive, for example. Go shopping all day and then a few minutes before you come home turn on your heat from your phone & BAM your in business baby!  The Nest is supposed to program itself — and save you energy in the process.  For $250 this is an amazing 2013 purchase, check out the video here.

For the Anger Management Tech Lover: Bendy Smartphone

Yes, the bendy screen smartphone. A bendy screen smartphone is a new technology touting a screen that we can bend! Yep. Who doesn’t want to bend and twist their phone into silly shapes sometimes?

It’s the best way to let out your anger, other than just throwing the thing against a wall. Using Samsung’s OLED display technology, we can be expecting a new phone model that will allow us to bend it, roll it up, and hit it with a hammer. (YES!) We already have the specs for this new piece of technological genius as well. The phone debuted as the “Galaxy Skin” (wait..did that say…skin?) features a high-res 800×480 AMOLED screen, 8mp camera and 1Gb of RAM as well as a 1.2GHz processor.

Don’t be surprised to see this new technology implemented into bendy screen tablets released shortly after. SO COOL!

For The Two-Wheeled Explorer: Photojojo Bikepod
Whipping around on your bike all day, you’re bound to catch some blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scenes. But, luckily, there is a gadget here to assist. Strap this little tripod doodad to your handlebars and you will never miss a camera-worthy moment again — at least not while riding your two-wheels. And we know what you’re thinking, yes, it is durable and will protect your beloved iPhone in case a tumble does occur. Buy it here ;) $45 and worth every penny.

For The Paranoid And OCD: Lockitron
We’re all familiar with that dreaded “wait, did I lock the door?” feeling when we’re about mid-way from point A to point B. Well, a new gadget is here to change all that. Lockitron gives you the ability to put your worrisome mind at ease wherever you are. It features a cool cover that fits on most deadbolt locks and has built-in Wi-Fi, so you can check up on the status of your door. It also allows you to lock and unlock from afar. Amazing, right? $125

Sienna Ray Admires: Kaylee Johnston

Add a comment

My name is Kaylee Johnston, up-and-coming electro pop singer. I write all of  my own material and I’m currently working on my debut album. It’s Influenced by spirited females such as Heart, Joan Jett, Robyn, and Lady Gaga, my sound is up beat, fresh, and iconic.

My Sienna Ray bags are the perfect accessory for my busy life. Aside from the obvious items (cash, credit card, and keys), I never forget to bring a bold MAC lipstick shade and fav Barkleys organic mints. You’ll also find a little ziplock full of almonds floating around in there somewhere.

‘I have two Sienna Ray bags and I couldn’t tell you which one I love more. I have a light yellow leather bag that is really comfortable to wear, and I usually wear it on sunny days. My other bag is white leather with black salmon skin detail… this one is my go-to bag for late nights and good times!’ – Kaylee Johnston

Sienna Ray & Co. PopUp Shop in New York’s Nolita ♥

Add a comment

 Sienna Ray & Co., lovable leather handbags & accessories, has spread its wings from Vancouver to NYC’s Mott Street in a PopUp shop sure to please. The boutique, which will be open from Thanksgiving weekend until Christmas Eve, offers a selection of special edition handbags, clutches, cosmetic cases and leather goods catering to the East Coast woman. For the first time Sienna Ray & Co. will debut a capsule collection of men’s small leather goods, RAY87, including wallets, cardholders, and laptop bags. The PopUp will be a true reflection of the brand’s marketing statement, ‘luxurious from the outside in’, capturing the playfulness in the overall shopping experience for it’s customers.

The boutique will embody a similar vision to the handbags: clean and inquisitive, giving customers the opportunity to touch and feel the product, also to see that there really is more then meets the eye. Each handbag is multifaceted just like the New York woman, a bag to rely on that can be with you and enhance your energy from day to night.

“Immediately when we signed the lease I wanted to include other inspiring designers in this opportunity and initiated a series of events ‘PopUp in a PopUp’. I wouldn’t be where I am today without all the help and support from friends, family and industry successors. I feel the PopUp shop is a true test to the brand. I see crisp white walls, edited product, multiple color stories; with accent of our signature lining from dress forms to delicately wrapped Christmas parcels, surrounding the atmosphere with holiday love and gift giving.

The location could not be more fitting in the high-end independent design area of NoLita. I feel extremely humbled to be in a radius of talented designers and brands. I am equally so proud to embrace my Vancouver roots, being situated on a prime shopping trail of Canadian success starting with Artizta on Broadway/Prince, John Fluevog footwear on Mulberry and now Sienna Ray & Co. around the corner.”- Founder & Creative Director, Natalie Kathleen

The Sienna Ray PopUp is located at 252 Mott St, just north of Prince St. Open 7 days a week Novovember 23 – December 24, 2012. Store hours: 11AM-7PM Mon-Sat & 12pm-6pm Sun.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of top male fashion blogger, Denny Balmaceda, visit our new office & showroom in NYC’s union square. We were inspired by his vintage/thrifted outfit & asked him to rock our brand new “medusa” doctor bag from Sienna Ray & Co.’s unreleased autumn.winter 2012 collection. His confidence, sophistication, and overall “swagg” made our medusa really stand out. A special thank you to his photographer Lee Reyes- it was a pleasure working with you guys! xo

Sienna’s Stories : “Steven P. Jobs, a visionary.”

Add a comment

Our lives are forever changed & enriched by the products continually produced by Apple.  Of course Apple products may not belong on the same pedestal of water, oxygen and other nutrients necessary for life…  Nonetheless, in my mind they fall to a very close second or third. (Not to mention the fact that I received an iMac in grade school which I then to my delight upgraded several times.)

Steve Jobs has changed the world of technology forever. Ten years ago, in October of 2001, Apple introduced the iPod. The concept of a music player had been done before. Technical associates, salespeople and research analysts all had commented that the price Apple decided on was the worst decision ever and that it would go, nowhere. Two years later the same comments were made about the iTunes music store and paying for virtual music files. As we all know now, not only were these successful ventures, but the predecessors for so much more (including for many other copycats).

Many tend to overlook his past projects, or were not around when these events took place. Steve pioneered the process of placing advanced forms of technology into the hands of people to use in their everyday lives. Apple may not be branded a PC but it was the first and most user friendly “personal computer” to ever exist. Apple continued to first develop their line of desktop computers with innovative varieties then turned to laptop computers, to handheld. However, that is too simple a statement for the transformation all these ventures had on the world of technology. (Pirates of Silicon Valley, a great story of Steve Jobs & Bill Gates).

 

As he leaves us, he managed to impress us once more with the boundaries he breaks with each update. Many do not realize how revolutionary the soon to be released iPhone update is.  Just as in the past, people spoke negatively of the possibility for the iPhone to possess Siri. Which according to Apple, is “the intelligent assistant that’s there to help. Just ask. Ask Siri to make calls, send texts, set reminders and more”. The Siri will instruct your iPhone to perform tasks with just the sound of your voice. THIS WILL MAKE LIFE SO EASY! (I thought he had already made it as easy for us as he was capable of, especially with walking  GPS apps!)

It takes people like Steve Jobs to really go in and change things, to make things happen. Not to worry, he has built a great team of successors, I still expect great things from Apple.

talent tuesday: food photography

Add a comment

It used to be that when you get food that’s beautifully plated at a restaurant, that you’d just admire it, pick up a fork, and start eating. I am sure Facebook and Twitter users will agree with me that there is way too many bad/ mediocre pictures of food on the internet. I would have to say I’m guilty of the crime as well. However, I’ve been wanting to take a class on food photography since I enjoy both so much. Whoever was the first to combine the two was genius! There are so many great food photographers, but Lara Ferroni is one of my favorite.

mmm

now this is what i call art

yum

eat me!
