Bancrott Estate Flight Song low calorie white wines : Shot with Nokia lumia 1520


Last week marked the launch of something we have been waiting for , a low calorie white wine with flavor . Bancrott Estate Flight Song partnered with actress Jamie Chung for  festive evening of Savignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio. Flight Song is made to be 20% fewer calories than most wines.The event was held on the fabulous roof at the Dream Hotel Downtown in Manhattan.

Guest sipped on wine while tasting delicious h’ors  d’oeuvres like tuna tar tar, crab cakes and sweet chocolate cake for dessert. Manicures were also available as well. DJ Hannah Brofman kept the music spinning throughout the night.

Jamie Chung, who I enjoyed as a warrior on Once Upon A Time was enjoying the evening with friends and fiance actor Brian Greenberg. He’s taller and cuter than I thought in person just in case you were wondering. I had a chance to ask Jamie about reviving her role on the Once Upon A Time. She admits ” No plans as of now but I’d love to go back ”

Jamie looked fantastic in winter white. I fell in love with her jacket and asked her about it. ‘Oh it’s by BCBG ” she said . Jamie also  wore a dress by Zara,and Alejandro Ingelmo heels.

So the evening proved that a low calorie wine with friends is just as much fun!

As big windows phone user and lover of technology products when I was contacted to co-host the first We Are Juxt  NYC presentation it was pretty exciting! As a beauty and lifestyle blogger this was amazing opportunity to collaborate on my favorite worlds of  tech,fashion, and art.  We Are Juxt is a Seattle based collective of that promotes and supports mobile art and technology. They are a mobile arts community with artists from all over the country. Held at Artifact gallery on Orchard Street , the exhibit showcased a series of photography captured on Nokia Lumia devices. If you are not familiar with the sleek Nokia Lumia1020 device it is the only smartphone camera using an 41MP camera ,xenon flash and incredible zoom capabilities. The video quality is comparable to dare I say film! It really delivers and is simply the best photo capabilities and quality. Mobile photography has become so important in visual art that it was just a matter of time before an event like this becomes the norm in showcasing a photographers work.The photos at the We Are Juxt exhibit looked crystal clear blown up to full size on the wall. The resolution was flawless. This was also a chance to take a peek at the latest Microsoft Windows products.

Guest were delighted to see what just how far the imagination could go using the Nokia Lumia 1020 to create mobile photography.  Nokia Lumia brings new meaning to #ReadyWhenYouAre tag line for #Windowsphone users.

Work by Josh St. Germain, Richard Koci Hernandez, Mike Hill , Joel Aversing, Matt Coach, Brad Puet (see above) Andre Hermann, and Jean Brice Lemal were on display.

The best part of this event was the fact that guests were able see the tools and the possibilities they could create. Above is the new Nokia Lumia 2520 . Its a bit lighter in weight than the Surface RT and comes with 64GB of expandable memory. It has a crystal clear display even in sunlight. You can’t beat this  for the portable office and the red color makes it fashionable.

The Nokia Lumia Icon is the latest phone to be introduced.What I love about it is it has  four built in microphones. Great for bloggers and journalist to record interviews in a less than ideal situations. It charges wirelessly via the Qi wireless charging standard. No more plugs !
