Yeeeeeee haw! I’m back
in the saddle from Seattle! Did you miss me? Didja? Didja? I hope so, because I missed you ever so much…
I have to say that the awesomest thing about coming back from vacation is the tower of packages that were patiently waiting for my sticky lil’ fingers to tear them open. The worst part? Realizing that the second I stepped foot into my house again, my fabulous vacation away from big-kid life was over. Wah-wah.
Back to work, back to being an “adult” (well, kinda sorta), and back to all of those lovely grown up responsibilities that were also piling up for me while I was away. The only natural thing I could do was drink wine. So, I drank wine. Lots of it.
Oh, aaaaaaaaaaaaand, thanks to FunSlurp I had some sweet imbibing-goodies. Unique gift givers and fellow prank-product lovers? Meet your new friendship.
Yey !!! So, who the heck is FunSlurp???
HERE’S WHAT THEY SAY (in a nutshell): “FunSlurp.com offers awesome Unique Products, Gag Gifts, and Pranks”.
HERE’S WHAT I SAY: This place seriously has some unique stuff. And, it’s not just gag gifts and prank stuff (although I find those products ridiculously fabulous and totes wanna cause trouble). No, no. They have stuff for EVERYONE:
- Facial hair lovers who like to drink cold beverages? Hook yourself up with a Mustache Ice Cube Tray.
- Wanna make sure your neighbors know you brought the steaks to the block party? Better get the BBQ Branding Iron.
- Oh, lady cupcake bakers? How about measuring out those fancy ingredients with your beauty-ful Flower Measuring Cups?
Life is crazy as it is. I say, why not add a lil’ spice to it (in the form of unique stuff from FunSlurp, duh). Feel free to take a peek at what they hooked me up with, and stalk your prankster heart out:
WINE CADDY: I mean, what says “drink me” more than a bottle of liquid fancy dressed in Lederhosen? Find yours: here (for $12.49)
MUSTACHE COASTERS: When I opened these up I LOL’d a little bit. Every coaster is a different mustache shape – including this one (my fave) – Kinda makes me wanna call up the Mariachi brothers and make a total fool of myself. Si Senor…Si. Find yours: here (for $ bucks).
And, last but certainly NOT least is the BACON BALM. Bacon lips? Meet your new bestie. It’s as if this lip balm was made for me. Seriously, if you love bacon, this balm (I hate that word, but this balm is the bomb!) is too legit to quit. I can’t believe how true to taste it was. Sue-weeeeeeeeeeee! Find yours: here (for $ bucks).
Hope you are having a FABULOUS Monday.
Time for me to obsessively apply and lick off my bacon balm.
It’s gonna be disgusting.
PEACE, LOVE and FunSlurp!

It’s the most beauteous Tuesday ever created! Not only am I killin’ it in week 3 of Jillian Michaels “Ripped in 30“, my tootsies are rockin’ a sweet new pair of awesomely fun socks. It’s a party over here, people!! The only thing missing is a salad made completely out of cupcakes. Oh, my god what I would give for just one fluffy lil’ cupcake. But I gotta keep my eye on the prize for now (the prize being putting on a bathing suit without scaring small children and cute animals). And besides, today is all about the skinniest part of my bod – my feet:
Thanks to my friends at Sock Panda, my feet are looking extra fabulous today! I’m a total sucker for good quality, groove-a-licious socks. So, when I heard about this super sweet sock subscription I was all over it! Their motto is simple: “You sign up. We send you cool socks every month. You are happy.“ Boom. Done.
Here’s the scoop:
Sock Panda is a monthly subscription service that provides you with fun socks every month. Grow your collection, give them as gifts, and wear them to school, to work, or out and about. ALSO AVAILABLE FOR MEN!
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
- You get 1-4 pairs of socks per month (you choose the # of socks you want each month when you sign up)
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST:
$ 11 bucks (per sock) per month (including shipping)
HERE’S WHAT I GOT:
I was excited to receive 2 pair of flashy socks in my package. When you subscribe, you get to pick the quantity and category you’d like to get. I received one pair from the “Cool Category” and one pair from the “Bold” category.
The first pair were from Happy Socks. These knee-high geometrical gems are SO comfy and also way fun. The only thing that would make them better would be if I was wearing them while eating a cupcake salad.
The second pair (by Frank Dandy) are made from bamboo! Um, how cool is that? Apparently, bamboo keeps your feet nice and cool. It also absorbs way better than other materials, so if you have stinky ones, these lil’ numbers might be your saving grace. Pair them with a cupcake salad and you’re a winner.
Wow, my size 5 feet look ginormous in these pics. Ginormously cute that is.
Bottom line? Sock Panda is where it’s at. Treat your feet to something awesome! Go ahead, you know you wanna.
I for one, am off to walk around my neighborhood flaunting my nifty new socks. My neighbors are gonna be wicket jealous.

Happy “stupid word I hate to spell” day! Let’s get straight to biz-nass. Everpurse. Have you heard of it? Do you own it? Are you with me, that this is the coolest techy-fashion piece ever made, ever? Really, it is. And, thanks to PureWow, we got to meet in person. Well, not really “in person” but “over the internet” which is sorta-kinda the same thing.
Lady geeks and fellow fashion fiends, I bring to you, the Everpurse:
I won’t pretend that I’m a huge fan of technology. Primarily because anything that could be argued as technology hates me. I’m serious. I look at my computer and it gives me the middle finger before flaunting it’s disgusting blue screen of death. Apparently, my computer has had a pow-wow with my mouse, my iPad, and my toaster. Freaking, jerks.
Anyway, the point is that despite my feud with electronical stuff, I am IN LUST with this bag. I was immediately drawn to it the moment I saw it and cannot wait to get a job as a stripper so that I can afford one in every style and color.
Let’s talk Everpurse -
WHY IS IT THE AWESOMEST?
Function meets fashion. The Everpurse has a secret hiding pocket that is super special. You slide your smartphone into the dock connector thingy at the bottom of docking system (patent-pending) and – Viola! Charging your phone while also looking super-cute!
When you need to charge the Everpurse itself, you plop it on it’s charging mat. And (here’s where it gets super technical) it uses “inductive charging to send energy wirelessly from the mat to the purse“. That’s fancy talk for Science, which is enveloped in an 8.5 x 7 slice of awesome (oh, that’s the size of the bag itself).
SOME OF MY FAVES:
Um, so these babies are not cheap by any means. They are most definitely an investment piece, that seem to be really worth your investment. Plus, although they are totally cute enough to use on their own, they are also tiny enough to fit in a bigger purse, which let’s you use it daily.

I’m semi-ashamed to admit that many of the decisions I make in life surround food. If I’m not knee-deep in trying to be healthy, I’m in over my head stuffing my face with something naughty. “Feeding frenzy” is my middle name – I’m 99% sure of it. Luckily, I’ve got some help, with my ummmm….problem. Cue, Boxtera.
Since I have started up the Insanely Huge Directory of Subscription Boxes, I’ve had the opportunity to seriously look into some pretty darn awesome subscription boxes. Boxtera is one of those. The hub and I have found that in order to survive gaining 4,000 pounds each month via naughty snacks, we 100% need healthy snack alternatives. And, since I’m pretty sure neither of us make enough dough to hire a personal chef and trainer like the celebs do, we lean to the next best option. A subscription box that delivers a bunch of healthy snacks to my door every month. Holla!!!!
Boxtera offers a monthly subscription of organic snacks, foods and sometimes a beverage delivered to your home or office.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
- You get approximately 25 servings of organic snacks
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST:
$40 bucks a month (including shipping)
- 6-month membership is $32 bucks a month (including shipping)
- 1-year membership is $30 bucks a month (including shipping)
You can trust that products delivered from BOXTERA are made from organic wholesome ingredients. They strive to include products that are mostly gluten free, sometimes vegan, but always minimally processed and non-GMO.
We have officially subscribed to this box and are LOVING what we get each month. Here’s the breakdown of what we got from our first box. I should mention that my box was a bit beefier than normal – there were some delays in receiving my box due to shipping issues, and the peeps over at Boxtera decided to send me EXTRA snacks for my troubles. Can you see AWESOME customer service? I can. AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

Stop everything you are doing right now and feast your eyes on this favoloso subscription box. The husby and I recently had the pleasure of sampling Gourmet Spotting and it was a total love (especially, the pasta, popcorn, brownie, cookie and pancakes). Oh, wait. That’s everything.
Gourmet Spotting is a “curated culinary subscription service of gourmet food from local and international artisans.” I absolutely LOVE that the boxes include foods curated from outside the U.S. as well. Such a nice touch and a great way to feel like you are a “big time” foodie. Thank you Sandro Diazzi and Aman Sarkaria for developing a subscription service that sends FULL SIZE products. My taste buds want to give you a high five.
Everything you need to know about this yum-mo box is below the images (including a coupon code for $10 bucks off!). If food is your thang, then Gourmet Spotting is totes worth signing up and checking out yourself. Mangia! Mangia!
ELI ZABAR BLONDIE: Let’s start off with this brownie. We did. We opened the box, grabbed the camera lickity-split, took the shot and devoured this baby whole. It was a naughty, and it felt naughty. Mission accomplished.
BACORN: The makers of this snack couldn’t have created something better suited for my belly – two of my faves (popcorn & bacon), smoooshed together in a masterpiece of OMG. Love. Didn’t want to share.
STRANGOZZI WITH SUMMER TRUFFLE: I’m a total idiot and thought these cute lil’ birdy nest shapped Strangozzi’s where going to stay in birdy nest shape. But, duh. Either way, I’m not a huge fan of truffle, but this was a total surprise love. I kept it simple, with a drizzle of EVOO and some parmesan/romano cheese. The man fancied it up with some red sauce. He’s crazy like that. WOOT!
ELI ZABAR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE: I realize now that I’m a big fat liar. I was thinking the brownie was the first thing we opened and devoured, but it was actually this gigundo cookie followed immediately by the brownie. Can you say fatty-pants? Anyway…um, can a chocolate Chip cookie ever be bad? No. No it can’t.
SHORTCAKES PANCAKE / WAFFLE MIX: We have not tried this yet. But, I continue to fawn over this container which is SO cute! I will update you when we give it a taste. I’m sure these will be awesome…with bacon…and hashbrowns….and….I just died.
