In order to satisfy one’s sweet tooth, Li-Lac Chocolates is the name to turn to. Li-Lac serves as Manhattan’s oldest chocolatier, dating back to the roaring ’20s, with a range of impeccably delectable chocolates where each bite is a cry for more. Almost a century later, times may have changed but Li-Lac’s signature methods in chocolate-making stay the same. The artisan chocolates are prepared in small quantities incorporating superior ingredients. Li-Lac’s fresh mint bars explode with a taste of powerfully decadent mint flavour, the marzipan roll has an exquisite almond texture; and the caramel squares ooze with a mouthwatering sensation. The delicate textures in each bite is reminiscent of artisanal European creations.
The Tria Laser 4X is an FDA-approved hair removal device that can easily be used in the comfort of one’s home. The handheld device can target and pinpoint the desired point on one’s body. Its method helps to put a halt to hair growth permanently, weakening the hair follicles. After only a couple of months, the results are considerably apparent. It is safe and effective. The device comes in different shades including pink, fuchsia and turquoise.
While Silk’n stands out for their devices to combat cellulite and handy innovations, they are also known for their new Flash & Go Express hair removal system as well as the compact device. The Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology decreases the amount of treatments by half. Like Tria, it is easy and convenient to use, ensuring that the pulses of light trigger the hair directly from the roots. Appropriate for both men and women, it works primarily on light brown to black hair.
Internationally acclaimed brand, Dyson, has been renowned for its innovative technology since it was founded by James Dyson more than two decades ago. Distributed in over 70 countries, the products are particularly innovative, bringing to market new solutions to age-old problems. A team of over 2,000 engineers and scientists come together to create lightweight and sturdy vacuum cleaners, bladeless fans, heaters, and hand-driers.
The Pure Cool Link purifier fan, available as a floor or desk fan, cools the atmosphere while purifying the air via the newly launched Dyson Link app. Air pollution inside can be worse than the pollution outside, making the machine helpful to any environment, ensuring the distribution of fresh and clean air throughout one’s living space. The air passes through a patented 360-degree glass HEPA filter, designed to capture the smallest and most harmful particles, eliminating up to 99·97 per cent of allergens and pollutants. The look is elegant and suits any space, while the low sound is tolerable throughout the day or night. As an extra assurance, a night-time auto mode works while the user is asleep, with a dimmed LED display, efficiently keeping track of air quality.
Anywhere Fireplaces let everyone indulge in the luxury and warmth of a fireplace in any setting without the inconvenience of soot, ash, smoke or pollution. The company offers an array of designs and colours to choose from. Each creation is named after major New York City locations and sites, including Lexington, Empire, Tribeca and Chelsea.
