5 Things I’m Totally Digging:

Hey! I’m back for a minute. And I just wanted to tell you about 5 things I’ve been into recently:

tangerine orange mio1. Orange Tangerine Mio – You’ve probably seen the commercials for this stuff. And I admit – I’m into it. I’ve been known to make late night trips to McDonalds every once in a while to pick up a large Hi-C Orange drink. I’m obsessed (although it tends to give me heartburn). The Orange Tangerine Mio tastes JUST like that. But better for you – and it lives in my fridge! Perfect.

 

2. Bobs Burgers – This show is like Family Guy but maybe slightly more family-friendly and HILarious. If you haven’t seen it, try it out. They’re on Netflix (and apparently YouTube here or there, too):

 

citi thank you preferred3. Citibank credit card – I’ve been using a Capital One rewards credit card for a few years now but recently looked at a statement and saw that my APR was at 21.95%! Holy Cow! I had no idea. I think I had come in at 0% APR offer and, like they count on, didn’t notice when that offer ended. Fortunately, I had a “dormant” Citicards “Thank You Preferred” credit card waiting for me with an offer for 0% APR for 15 months = balance transfer for the win!  Lesson learned:  Don’t forget to look at your statements!  If you need a good finance tool, I still recommend Mint.com. I’m their #1 Fan. Seriously. #1.

 

colgate_whitening_penbrush4. Colgate Optic White toothpaste and toothbrush/whitening pen – I’m part of this program called Influenster where in exchange for you answering surveys, writing reviews, and posting on social media sites, you get free samples to try. The most recent items I got were the Colgate Optic White toothpaste and toothbrush with built in whitening pen. The samples they sent lasted about 2 weeks and at the end of that time period, I really loved the results! I’m not just saying this because I got the free stuff to review (thank you!) – I actually liked it so much that I went out and purchased a new batch. I have used Crest Whitestrips before but I’m so bad at remembering to wear them. Having the pen in the base of the toothbrush made it so easy to whip it out every time I brushed (2x a day). The goo in the pen is essentially the goo from the strips. I definitely recommend the toothpaste and toothbrush/whitening pen and if you want an invite, let me know! I love being a part of Influenster.

 

5. Valerie by Amy Winehouse (RIP) – I can’t decide if I’m embarrassed or not to admit this but I’ve watched Glee since the beginning. The last episode ever just aired recently and included a version of Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie” performed by Santana. Ever since then, I can’t get it out of my head and have been playing it on repeat:

** Just so you know, I was not paid to recommend any of these products. I did receive the Colgate items for free for purpose of testing and review but these opinions are solely my own.**

Fashion Week Friday.

To be completely honest, besides a few blogs and articles on Fashion Week, I don’t really follow the event all that closely. But, you see all these “street style” photos of people hanging out between shows and I can’t help but wonder “How much did they PAY for that outfit?!” (sometimes critically sometimes out of pure envy).

Well. This article from Yoodot asked a few attendees that question and here are some of the answers:

75_dollars

  350_dollars

2400_dollars

too_much

priceless

“Priceless”  - I LOVE that answer! For more outfits and prices, click the images above or here. Thank you, Alison at Brown Eyed Style for the link!

… THEN there’s Jimmy Kimmel’s prank … So funny!

I’m in New York.

I came up to NYC to visit the rents for the weekend – As you read this I’m hopefully through the rumored longass lines to see the Rain Room at the MoMA.  The exhibit ends July 28th so there’s only a week left! I’ve heard mixed reviews… some people loved it and some people thought it was a waste of hours of their lives. hmmm…

While we’re on the topic of New York, I wanted to introduce you to the website:  Humans of New York

Humans_Of_New_York

Humans of New York is a project created by Brandon, a bond trader turned photographer, who goes around New York taking photos of people and hearing their stories.  In the section about the photographer, he says “I’ve taken nearly 5,000 portraits and written 50 stories. And I’ve met some amazing people along the way.

The captions under the photos are equally as awesome and fun to read as viewing the photos :) Take some time and scroll through – maybe you’ll even see someone you know (I know less than 10 people in NYC but I can’t help looking for them)! The photographer even has a book coming out that would make a great addition to a lonely coffee table!

Hope you’re enjoying your Monday!

Tuesday Dudesday: Books books books.

Physical Books … how old fashioned.
Being a steward of all things digital as I am it is a little weird that when it comes to books I really prefer the physical copy rather than the electronic version.
(Gasp)
I’m not sure what it is – maybe it’s because I stare at a computer screen for at least 8 hours in a day or maybe it’s nice to have something tangible in this world of digital relationships and text based conversations.
Too much?
Anyway there is this cool site I found a while ago called PaperBack Swap:
paperback_swap

PaperBack Swap allows you to post your books and trade other users for their books. How it works is you post your books and when someone wants it – you send it to them (pay the 2 dollars in postage) and they get your book. Once this transaction occurs you get a credit which allows you to request a book from a user and they in turn send it to you. I think when you first start you get one credit for free but I could be wrong.

I have used this service quite a few times and it is awesome for those who enjoy physical copies of books and don’t mind waiting a few days to receive them. Plus it’s basically free (minus postage).

They also have a CD Swap and a DVD Swap.

Check ‘em out.

Monday Mantra.

“This is the only moment you need to be worried about.
There is no yesterday,
There’s no tomorrow,
There’s just right now.

You’re not late for anything,
You’re not going to miss anything,
You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.
You’re exactly who you’re supposed to be.

You’re absolutely perfect
And whatever happens today is exactly what’s supposed to happen.”

Believe it or not, this was from the movie “Hit & Run” starring Dax Shepard and his adorable fiance Kristen Bell.

Skip to 1:25 to hear/see the mantra:
