Note from Editor: Hi-Tech Chic’s Journey for 2017

As of last week I will no longer be writing for Cutegeek.com. My main focus will now be growing and building up this site, Hi-Tech Chic.

Hi-Tech Chic has been off to a great start this year with events like CES 2017 in Las Vegas. I experienced more robots than I have ever seen, the drone rodeo in the desert and several different booths with virtual reality. Needless to say it was a blast!

Another great event I attended was GDC in San Francisco and the AMD launch events including the after party with Mix Master Mike, which was AWESOME! Continue Reading →

JUISIR – Juicing With Zero Cleaning and More Juice

One of the biggest hassles of juicing is clean up. It is one of the key reasons why I don’t like juicing. I like the juice but not the huge mess that requires taking apart my juicer to clean it out fully. There had to be another way to juice. Introducing the JUISIR, the worlds first cold press juicer that requires absolutely no clean up. Continue Reading →

The New Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote Review

Unfortunately we may have made an enemy in cyber world because the article got hacked and botched. Since I pride myself on tenacity I am reposting the recovered and rewritten article on Hi-Tech Chic!

Hook: One-Stop Shopping Search Engine for Fashion App

I just recently got the Hook App to see what all the buzz was about plus I’m gearing myself up for Paris Fashion Week in February. The Hook Fashion Discovery app is a direct response to shopping trends showing consumers juggling multiple shopping apps and websites on their mobile devices. Hook, which is targeted towards fashion-conscious female and male millennials, is the first-of-its-kind to bring users exact and similar items to match their fashion queries. Continue Reading →

MTV CASTING CALL – MY SUPER SWEET

In the past I did not condone or liked MTV’s my Super Sweet Sixteen however recently I was reminded that my culture has a similar celebration and even more extravagant. In the Hispanic culture we have Quinceañeras which is a celebration on your fifteenth birthday and it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. It’s normally a religious celebration and the birthday girl is donning a formal gown almost similar to a wedding dress. Continue Reading →

Misfit’s New Smartwatch – The VAPOR

This year at CES Misfit unveiled the VAPOR Smartwatch and they ended up winning 6 CES awards as a result. The VAPOR Smartwatch is the newest addition to Misfit’s product line.

NEWS FROM ATX: SPOON to Curate Three SXSW Showcases at The Main (“Eno’s”)

As an Austin native I have been a Spoon fan since I was in high school WAY back in the day. Anytime they play at SXSW I go to their shows considering they are Austin Home Grown.

It was announced today that Spoon will hold a three-night residency at The Main during the 2017 SXSW Music Festival. It will also be the same week that they will release their ninth album, Hot Thoughts, March 17 on Matador Records. During the residency, Spoon will resurrect the original, classic Austin venue Emo’s location, currently referred to as The Main, Tuesday, March 14–Thursday, March 16. The band will curate a unique line up each night and will be referring to the venue as “Eno’s” in honor of the band’s founding drummer and Austin stalwart Jim Eno. Continue Reading →

Beauty Products for the New Year

beauty-guide-17With the New Year fast approaching it’s time to bring your A-Game when it comes to your beauty regiment. I received several different beauty products to review and test out. I have to be honest I could not get to all of them since I only have one face but I got through most. Those products I didn’t get to my lucky friends got to test out for me. The great thing about most of these products is that they also come in cute gift sets as well.

Below are all the beauty products I received in the past couple months and review of each product. Enjoy!

Christie Brinkley RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream and CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatmentchristie-b

I received the RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream and CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment to test out a couple months ago and used it for a month. I didn’t see drastic results just by using RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day alone but if you pair it with their CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment there were great results with fine lines. I’m not saying the RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day doesn’t work because it does but I’m impatient and want to look like Christie Brinkley tomorrow, that’s why I loved the CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment. The CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment costs $79.95 and the RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream is $89.95 on their site.

New! Balanced to Pore-fection (Holiday)boscia-gift

Boscia sent me their new Balanced to Pore-fection (Holiday) gift set and also their blotting linens to which I am addicted to. The charcoal Assortment gift set includes: 150 mL Detoxifying Black Cleanser, 30 mL White Charcoal Mattifying MakeUp Setting Spray, 30g Luminizing Black Mask and 15 mL Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel. If you travel as much as I do the Makeup Setting Spray and the Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel are a great go to. Boscia’s Balanced to Pore-fection (Holiday) Gift set is $39.00 and the blotting linens are just $10 on Boscia’s site. Continue Reading →
