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.

Ha ha. The pic below is hilarious. Let’s start off by saying that Modern Family is probably one of the most hilarious shows ever made (a super-duper close second to New Girl (love!), How I Met Your Mother and the Mindy Project). Love it. And, I love Jesse Tyler Ferguson. I would totally marry him, if I was single and he was into ladies. Ok, well that’s a lie. I wouldn’t marry him. But I would totally add him to my best friend circle.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about what’s happening at the Supreme Court this week. If you haven’t, I ask you to crawl out from beneath that comfy lil’ blanket you’re snuggling under and turn on your telly! I’m so bossy aren’t it?
No seriously though. I’m not here to impose my views on you…clearly, I support marriage equality – If you have read any of my past blog posts you will recall that I’ve asked several types of foods, websites and subscription box companies to marry me. I don’t discriminate. Love is love people. But today isn’t about me. Today I wanna show my support by sharing some kick-ass charitable bow ties made by my best friend Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Tie The Knot was founded by my Bestie (JTF) and Justin Mikita, having the goal to advocate for the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans (with somethin’ UBER fancy, I might add). Their super fun, stylish and unique neckwear is inspired by some of their faves: Art, Fashion, stuff they see on the street, etc.
Thier bow ties are created in limited quality to “promote uniqueness & individuality”. And, (best part) all proceeds from the sale of bow ties go to a variety of organizations that are in the fight for gay and lesbian civil rights. To break it down further, that means that $20 bucks of every $25 dolla fancy neck accessory YOU buy goes directly to taking a stand & making a change. Pretty sweet. And, it’s pretty simple, as they say: “suit up, and Tie The Knot—so that someday, we can too.“ Love it. Buy some freaking bow ties people!
I THOUGHT THESE WERE THE CUTEST

Thank you Pure Citizen for featuring this cutie-patoot sweatshirt by Vaute Couture!
This Friends Not Food sweatshirt is Easter Bunny approved for a couple of reasons: (a) it’s painted with water based inks on a sweatshop free eco-heather fleece (that’s recycled polyester & organic cotton baby!), (b) it has “peeps” on it which makes it super easter-y; and (c) it has a kangaroo pocket – and well, Kangaroos are both the cutest, and also cover up your Easter face-stuffing belly rolls. Bow chica, bow, wow.
Find it: here for $49 bucks (originally $70 – On sale today only!)

Top O’ the mornin’ to ya (that’s “good morning” in leprechaun, P.S.). Today is a BIG weekend for a lot of you. I used to rage pretty hard on St. Patty’s day weekend-
It started with early a.m. breakfast and shots, followed by mid morning shots, followed by the “mixing of the beverage” (AKA let’s make a crazy drink that’ll get us wasted but look like green kool-aid), followed by the “assume your position” which took place at the parade zone and included incessant imbibing. Immediately following, we had the ol’ “dance your pants off” competition in one of the local bars, which was later followed by early evening drinking, small snack, mid evening drinking, “holy crap it’s midnight and I’m still drinking” drinking, ending with the following morning. Whereby you’d wake up laying on your kitchen floor with a cracker in one hand, and a roller skate in the other. Oh, those were the days. Here’s to lookin’ your best when your actin’ a mess this weekend:
This Chunky Green Scarf via Happiknits: There’s a solid chance you’re going to lose your coat somewhere along the way. This baby will keep you from getting frostbite, while also ensuring you look super St. Patty’s Day cute. And, if you’re lucky enough to have a toasty St. Patty’s day (suck it Florida!), it’ll make a great sling for the contraband you’ll be trying to smuggle outta the bar. Find it: here for $79 bucks.
This multi-talented Flask via Shot Flask: A flask with a secret hiding shot glass? This is the perfectest St. Patty’s parade day accessory ever made. All of the other lil’ leprechauns will be so jealous or your super sweet spy gear. Find it: here for $25 bucks
These cute Crochet Boot Cuffs in Emerald Green via Wanelo: I don’t care what anyone says, I’m still hopelessly obsessed with leg warmers and boot socks. And, these green lil’ numbers will rock your…uh….socks off? Don’t be alarmed if you find them floating around in your bathtub post St. Patty’s celebrating. Legwarmers have a habit of doing that. Find em’ here: for $34 bucks
These mermaid-y nails: These days, you can be-dazzle just about everything (including your super secret lady regions!) So, there’s no excuse to have boring nails on the most exciting day of the year. Find yourself some green nail polish and some sequins and wrap those babies around an ice-cold pint of Guinness. You’ll be a total celeb. Find out how to do it: here.
This gorgeous Maja Fringe Crossbody Bag via Little Black Bag: I am in LUST with this bag. And, take it from me – If you’re gonna be walking around the streets of your city aimlessly for the next several hours, your gonna need a function bag that screams “hey girl, haiiiiiii”. This bag is perfect for lookin’ rockin’ and stashing all of the stuff you’ll accidentally steel throughout the night. Find it: here
And, that pretty much covers it. Have a blast and be safe!
P.S. Check out these goats. The hubby and I have been laughing at these for days.
