Earlier this week my mom and I paid a visit to @LaserAway in Sherman Oaks. We were invited to check out the office and their services. First off I just want to say how I love the decor of the Sherman Oaks office (not sure if they’re all the same). It was cute, simple, and classy. We were greeted by Janelle who was super helpful in getting us started with filling out info and ready to go for our appointment. My mom and I loved that the appointment started right on time; rarely happens at doctor’s offices now of any kind (in my opinion).

meet Janelle 🙂

My mom had decided to get a series of botox injections in her forehead for a little lift of the eyebrows. My mom’s gotten botox a few times before but she said that, Krystle, the nurse, did an awesome job targeting the right spots. AND she said it wasn’t painful at all (shocked me). It’s been about 2 days since my mom’s gotten it done and she likes it so far! 🙂 My mom and I have already decided we’ll be back for more… her to maintain the wrinkle free skin and me for some laser hair removal.

Looking for Something?

DoAT is a new iPhone app that promises to deliver a different kind of search experience.  The app lets you personalize your search, allowing you to find content the way you want to find it.


I downloaded the app to check it out…and I’d like to call it a 3D search experience.  Instead of turning up a list of search results, it gives you a list of categories, allowing you to select the direction you want to go.

For example, in my search of “Hurricane Irene” I could choose to see results in social media, reference, weather, etc.  So, if I wanted to see the latest buzz on the impending storm I would select “social.”  Then I can swipe through search results from various social media mobile apps: Twitter, LinkedIn, FourSquare and so on.  And there’s no need to actually download any of the apps.

This app definitely makes is easier to customize your results and get exactly what you’re looking for.  The “swipe” interface is unique, practical, and fun to work with.  Also, there’s a sense of discovery as you are introduced to sites you may not have used before.

Tip: Get the app at the App Store while it’s still free!
