Laser Hair Removal Queens, Long Island

laser hair removal, long island, new york, queens, nyc, laser, hair removal
I am Italian, Greek and German, so I come with a lot of thick, dark hair all over my body.

My mom and sister were the first to get laser hair removal and raved about it, so I followed suit.

I go to Bare NY in Queens. It is right on the border of Nassau and Queens and I couldn’t recommend it more. (All thoughts and opinions are my own. This is not a sponsored or paid post).


I see Tanya, who is so fun and spunky. We always have great conversations, and she is professional and makes me feel very comfortable considering I am usually in the nude.


Bare NY has Groupons for first time customers.

Honestly, the prices are amazing for what it is.

Currently: for three full-leg laser sessions it is $209. 

It is not as expensive as most people think it would be and I truly think it is worth the money.

With that being said and because I am so hairy, it is more expensive for me than for others.

For example, my mom only did three laser hair removal sessions of full leg, whereas I am going on session 7.

Although I have had many sessions on my legs, there is still some hair in certain places, so that’s why I keep going back. But, every time I leave, the hair gets lighter and thinner.

Laser hair removal also isn’t painful.
No one ever believes me when I say that! I am the biggest baby when it comes to pain, but I promise you it doesn’t hurt. It feels a little hot for less than 5 seconds, as the laser is zapping the hair follicle, and then the feeling goes away. It’s slightly uncomfortable, but then the feeling passes. So, if you are afraid of the pain, I promise you, it is fleeting, and totally worth being hairless. 

Some tips about laser hair removal:

·      Do it during the fall/winter months because you cannot be exposed to the sun.

·      You have to shave the night before your hair removal session, but you cannot shave in between sessions.

·      No lotion or deodorant on the parts you are getting lasered.

·      The sessions are spaced out over a couple of months. The time between each session getting longer and longer as less and less hair grows back. So you have to be committed to removing it.


If you are thinking about getting laser hair removal, I personally think it is worth it, even if it is an investment. Razors are expensive and shaving is annoying and takes a lot of time. For me it makes sense because it saves me time and probably money, if we calculate it, because I am not buying expensive razors.


I hope this gave you some more insight into why I love laser hair removal. If you have any questions, feel free to ask away!

I have had my Sarah Flint Perfect Pumps for about a year now and every time I put them on, I feel like million bucks.

Here is my pros and cons list of the Sarah Flint Perfect Pumps (85 mm):

LBD, feather bag, black heels, pumps, sarah flint, heels, shoe review,

1.     The best way to describe how the shoes feel when I walk in them is by the term: sturdy. My foot feels secure and not like I am going to fall over in these shoes. The heel is made out of a medal rod and feels very supportive.

2.     Because of the make of the shoe, they are very easy to walk in.

3.     There is an arch support with an extra wide toe box with extra padding. Making the shoes uber comfortable to stand and walk in all day. Because of the make, your feet do not throb at the end of the day when you take these shoes off.

4.     They are made in Italy. 

5.     The quality of the shoe and the packaging is amazing.

6.     They also look amazing on. Super sexy shoe. Sure to give you a confidence boost (especially because you are able to walk in them)

7.     They come in many colors. (Just about every color you would need in your wardrobe)

8.     They come in extended sizes! (Up to size 13)


1.     They’re pricey. They are an investment, but a good one if you care about comfortable heels. The price isn’t for everyone’s budget, but if you need one good pair of black pumps, these are the ones to get.


Lots of pros, not many cons.

I hope I have convinced you to buy a pair!

I was Taken Advantage by a Brand, Threatened to be Sued and Here is What Happened

Here is a bit of background information: I have been blogging for six years. I have worked with close to 150 brands over that time frame. I have read and negotiated many contracts. Over the years I have become a better negotiator. I try to make sure I get what I want: product and payment. I always make sure the contract lists the deliverables clearly. I have also learned to say no to many brands if I am genuinely not excited about the brand or if I don’t like the product. I am also in my second year of law school hoping to be a transactional attorney.

Here’s the story: I did a giveaway earlier this year with a company, who won’t be named, (and who are not pictured) and they took advantage of me and my followers.

I read and signed a contract that would give me product and payment for posting two static Instagram photos, one of the posts which would be for a giveaway to one of my followers.

We had a timeline of when the product would be shipped and when I would send in the drafts of the content and when they would go live once approved.

I shot the campaign, sent in the photos for the first post, all was well.

For the second post, which would be a giveaway post, I asked my contact at the brand if I could post it a little later than we had originally said in the contract because of school or something, I needed more time.

It was approved. I asked if I could have a new updated contract with the new date. The contact told me I didn’t need it, but I insisted I should have an updated contract just in case.

We then discussed via email what the requirements would be for my followers to enter the giveaway. We negotiated back and forth, and we settled on one of my suggestions.

I posted the giveaway; it goes off without a hitch. It is open for a set period of time and then it closes, I picked a winner and told the brand.

The brand contacted the winner via Instagram and told her to pick out her product and the size and to send her address.

The brand told me and her that the product was shipped.

The brand never sent the giveaway prize.


I asked the brand a couple of weeks later where the prize was. They told me that they sent it and that obviously it got lost in the mail and they would send another one.

This went on for some time: back and forth, I was being told that the product was shipped, the mail carrier lost it and that they were sending new ones. Supposedly they had sent three boxes… all lost.


So, I eventually started to not believe the brand anymore. I started to push them a bit more. I asked to see the tracking number. No response. After weeks and weeks, still going back and forth, I was fed up and told them they were in breach of contract if they did not send the giveaway.

When I said that, I was threatened with a lawsuit from the brand.


Little did they know who they were dealing with. And little did they know that I had just taken contracts in school and was training to be an attorney.

I responded that I would be happy to speak with their attorney.

The attorney never got in touch. Do you know why? Because I was right! They had no claim for a lawsuit. They were in the wrong, not me. What would they sue me for? I didn’t do anything wrong.

They were in breach of contract. I knew I was right, but I needed reassurance, so I emailed my contracts professor and told her everything, and she reassured me that I was right.


Lessons we learn from this as a content creator:

1. Make sure you have a written contract that is signed and dated by both parties

2.          Don’t be afraid to ask for a second opinion

3.          Don’t be afraid to fight for what you were promised for


This happens way more often than we think, and we really need to speak up and stop letting brands take advantage of us! We are worth SO much more than brands value us for. So, as Louise says, KNOW YOUR WORTH!


I hope this post sheds light on a bad situation in the blogger world, and you take something from it.
