Clock Radio Time Projection

Fans of high end gadgets will be pleased to know that The Sharper Image, makers of ultra cool toys for big people, is bringing their products to a wider audience. Once only available online or through The Sharper Image storefronts, now the fun stuff is available at major retailers including The Bay and The Source.

This Projection Alarm Clock projects the digital time on the ceiling in large numbers that are easy to see when your eyes are a little blurry, but the image is soft enough that won’t interrupt your slumber.  In addition to great alarm features like AM/FM radio; dual alarms; touch snooze panels and automatic reset, the time projection has adjustable angles and three settings – HI/LOW/OFF. The radio also has touch controls which is kind of cool.

Get Those Kat Eyes September 4, 2009

Kat Von D for Sephor#2B3B75I’m attempting to add a little rock and roll to my look this fall. I’ve invested in a heap of black clothing and chest full of silver jewellery. When it comes to make-up, I figure a lot of eye liner is in order. So I turned to today’s eye liner queen, Kat Von D.

In case you don’t know, Kat is the star of her own show called L.A. Ink. She’s a tattoo artists, shop owner and now, cosmetics guru. She’s teamed up with Sephora to bring these products to market. Perhaps you saw snaps of the photoshoot where they used her very own tattoo concealer to cover all her work. She brings her third collection to Sephora this fall.

“Like tattoos, I’ve always viewed makeup as a way to express yourself,” says Kat Von D. “That’s why my look and style is constantly evolving, and that is also why I wanted to create a line that gave people options. This fall ensemble really lets the client decide her degree of gorgeous.”

The Tattoo Liner comes in two colours. Skater is a deep blue and Trooper is ink black. It’s a liquid liner that takes a steady hand to apply but once it’s on, it stays put. It’s also recommended for creating your own temporary tattoos anywhere on the body. So find yourself an artist and pretend you’re on the latest episode of L.A. Ink, minus the pain.

Tattoo Liner is at exclusively at Sephora for $23.
