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!

Can’t Hold Us Down.

Macklemore, the guy who did Thrift Shop, actually has some other good songs like this one:

Happy Saturday/Second 4th of July Weekend!

Chain hits my chest.

When I’m banging on the dashboard! Chain hits my chest when I’m banging on the radio!

I discovered this song from The Mindy Project (love this show). Totally my jam:

Need a chain after watching this video? I got mine at South Moon Under:

Tuesday Dudesday: MovieClips.

So I was looking up some good example videos for this new product I want to market – it has to do with cell phones and charging multiple devices from the same USB … but that’s not the point.I came across this cool YouTube video:
I thought the video was effective so I decided to 1) use them as an example for what I want to do and 2) go check out the site.

How have I not heard of this site before? Seriously.

This site has millions of movie clips and makes it ridiculously easy to find that Emma Watson or Chuck Norris clip you’ve been dying to see again.

Taker ‘er for a spin.

Can’t stop.

Oh, Miley.  You’re definitely in my “guilty pleasures” list with Party in the USA (and the remix).  I know most people hate your new look but I think it’s rather badass.  I kind of like your new song, too (my favorite part is the guy’s “It’s my party I can do what I want,” etc, etc).  I definitely predict a plethora of club remixes. (maybe even a mashup – Young Gunz Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, anybody?)

Sincerely, Me.

Office Withdrawl.

Can you believe it’s gone? I’m really missing The Office – it was an integral part of so many peoples’ Thursday nights!

In memory of the show,  the Lil Wayne/Office theme remix:
