The road to the holidays is paved with festive parties and friendly get-togethers. There is no better time to pull out some fabulous fashions and accessorize with those extravagant “dinner shoes” (you know, the crazy-expensive ones you saved up for but can only wear from the car to the dinner table). To protect our investments, while still savoring some holiday cheer, we turn to Solemates, a Shark Tank fan favorite! Solemates’ unique rubberized High Heelers have become a Hollywood staple; Carrie Underwood, Lauren Conrad, Demi Lovato, and Oprah Winfrey won’t walk the red carpet or stage without them. We use them whenever we find ourselves in snow, grass, and sand, or when our adventures take us through cobblestone streets, wooden decks, and subway grates.

Solta Medical, a division of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc., announced that its Thermage FLX System has received FDA clearance to non-invasively smooth skin on the face, eyes and body. The FLX is the newest generation of Thermage, a treatment favored by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, and Oprah Winfrey, which uses patented radiofrequency technologies to create a uniform heating effect in the deep collagen-rich layers of the skin, tightening existing collagen and stimulating the production of new collagen. The Thermage FLX features a new optimized energy delivery algorithm, which automatically measures and precisely tunes the amount of energy delivered to the patient and treatment area. The system also features a new vibrating hand-piece to help enhance patient comfort, and a new, larger treatment tip that reduces treatment time by 25 percent.
“As the demand for skin tightening procedures continues to rise, we have continued to evolve and enhance our Thermage technology to meet the needs of skincare physicians and their patients who are looking for ways to achieve smoother skin with natural looking results,” said Joseph C. Papa, chairman and CEO, Valeant. “With the approval of the Thermage FLX through our Solta business, a pioneer and leader in the aesthetic industry, treatments are now faster and more patient-friendly.” The new Thermage FLX system is expected to be commercially available before the end of 2017.
Last October, Oprah Winfrey took a prominent stake (10%) in Weight Watchers spending $43.2 million for 6.4 million shares of the weight-loss company. In addition to being the face of the company, she is now adding her own success story. In a promotion video, the media giant reveals that she has lost 26 pounds since joining the program. What excited us (and so many of her fans) most was her ability to accomplish this without killing all the carbs associated with dieting. “This is the joy for me,” she explains. “I love bread. I love bread. I now just manage it, so I don’t deny myself bread, I have bread every day.”
