dropbox-vs-icloud

Take THAT overpriced iCloud. After spending $500 for an iPhone customers should be provided free backup storage sufficient for the device’s memory. After all, isn’t device failure the reason I backup in the first place?

Today, again I am within 300MB of my iCloud 20GB limit for my new iPhone 5S 64GB. Apple is hoping my desperation leads me to push the “upgrade iCloud” button and spend an additional $100 to keep my data safe.

We buy an overpriced iPhone and pay exorbitant fees to backup our data for when Apple’s hardware fails. We’re suckers!

Not this time! Here’s what you do…

Sign up for a free Dropbox cloud account online. Then, get this free Dropbox App, install it on your iPhone and voíla – automatic backups of your media to Dropbox, accessible from anywhere, 100% secure. Refer a few friends and you get extra Dropbox space for free.

Why choose Dropbox? It’s free and the company still has integrity. They aren’t greedy like Apple and they aren’t spying like Google (you did know they read your gmail, right?).

Get the Dropbox iPhone App here.

And now you’re saving money

model photo business card

Leave behind an impression! You never know when opportunity will call, but you can’t be walking around with a huge headshot or comp card. 

Put a different photo on every card and hand them out according to the circumstances: editorial for that edgy designer you meet, and natural for the tv agent you network with.

Much less expensive than printing comp cards, especially if you’re a parent whose child is quickly growing.

well maybe not literally, but figuratively

I'm selling off all of the crazy fashion, couture and little "trucs" i've acquired during my globe-trotting modeling years.

It's a 300 square foot climate-controlled closetful so I've got my assistant Loni to help me, and it'll take a few months.

You can view the action as it goes down on my personal eBay page (click here) .

If you've got a size 10 / 41 shoe or wear a size 6, this may be your lucky season!!!

Galliano, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, oh my gosh the most gorgeous Gucci vintage stilettos… and hot pink stiletto patent leather Stuart Weitzman boots!

Check me out, please give my stuff a good home! xo 

 

i have found some GREAT deals recently on orbitz. they must get exclusives with some airlines and hotels, cuz i dont find the same price on any other website.

TRAVEL TIP:
If you're going to LA, use orbitz to book a room at the Roosevelt Hotel in West Hollywood. Normally $700/night they sell rooms on orbitz for $250. Teddy's celeb-packed nightclub is in the lobby of the Roosevelt, and it's across from the Kodak Theater (American Idol-land).
Shhh

 


everyone asks me what i use to clean my face. true, all the makeup can take its toll!

i use this simple face wash and it takes everything off in one swoop!

thoroughly clean face wash

best of all, it is really inexpensive and this size lasts me about a year.

no matter what type of skin you have, this basic tea tree oil non-soap gently cleanses & disinfects. sometimes it's best just to get back to basics!


Here's a link to get it for yourself at the best price i've found.

$8 for 32 oz. 

Nice on the budget!

so normally you'd think free cards are cruddy cards, right?

but i actually print mine here, and they are FAB!

yes, you can get a batch for free, but you have to pay shipping & they have a logo on the back.

the better deal is to order 100 cards for $10, design them two-sided and full color,
…and get free shipping

then, if you're obsessive like me, you'll also order matching memo pads, note cards, postcards… oh, the choices!
i even made magnets LOL
