About the Awesome
You are here, because you have been secretly brainwashed and on the count of three…just kidding. For serious: five-style-high is a blog / website / portal to the unknown that compiles some of the coolest / trendiest / unique websites, products, services & more and showcases them with a short review and funny anecdotes to create a “one-stop-shop” for awesome.
If you want awesome? We got awesome. If you are tired of the same old stuff you see everywhere else, and, if you like shopping, food (like, a lotta’ naughty food) and other really cool stuff, you’ve just made a new friend.
Welcome to the Club.
Awesome arrives to five-style-high in lots of different ways – in addition to a whole lotta’ diggin’ and lots of hours hunting (this is blood, sweat and tears people!), we / I hear about cool stuff via word of mouth from our friends and colleagues and through the walls of our condo (just kidding, I’m notthat crazy of a stalker…or, am I?).
We / I stumble upon it on the internets, and also read about it in print or hear about it on TV or radio. Occasionally it arrives to us via the ol’ string and can method as well, but that doesn’t happen too often. There was a pigeon outside my window the other day and he may or may not have had a message containing awesome.
The short answer (or, long. But who’s counting?) – It comes from everywhere we /I can find it basically.
Click here and start reading. If you are interested in something particular, you can find it fast by clicking on the individual categories in the top sidebar. If you want this to be super easy for you, give me your email address (in the “Follow and Subscribe” section found on the right side bar of the home page) and you’ll get notified every time I post something incredibly awesome. It’s that simple.
All that I ask while you’re here, is to have fun. Enjoy. Give feedback. Tell me if it’s awesome by sharing it, liking it, leaving a comment about it, etc. Let me when I’m an asshole and you’re mad at me by saying nothing and pretending you like me anyway. Ok, fine. You can tell me when you think something I say (or do) is jerky and stupid or whatever it is that makes your blood boil. Although, that will likely never ever, ever, ever happen, infinity, never ever, squared. Seriously, it won’t. Ok, bye.
Oh wait. I forgot to tell you – Awesome stuff is posted on Mondays, Wednesday (I hate spelling that word) and Fridays. Well, that’s supposed to be my skedge, but sometimes I post whenever the heck I feel like it (which means, you get more or less awesome some weeks depending upon if I’m slammed at my “big kid” job, or if I have a whole boat-load of stuff to say).
At least once a week (probably Friday), I’ll post a “List of Awesome (aka “5-list”)“ (like this). If I’m feelin’ particularly nice, I sometimes even super-size it. Anyway, if you’ve ever found something you totally love and wanna find lots MORE of it, you’ll dig on my 5-lists. They focus on one topic and offer up 5 things about that topic (Do you obsess over monthly subscription boxes like me? Click here to see a list of 5 of them in one spot).
In a nutshell (a really, really big one), ya, neva, eva know what the CEOA (Chief Editor of Awesome – me, Jenny) might do to surprise you. Ha ha. That title is so ridiculous.
