Pride Socks Continues to Rock My Style

Pride Socks

Oh Pride Socks, how I love thee! Let me count the ways! I love the bright colors of your newly revamped website and free shipping on domestic orders over $49.99! I love your rainbow vintage style and the compliments I receive when I’m rocking my White Rainbow Lowcut Socks or my Black Rainbow Lowcut Socks. And I especially love the power and positivity behind your company’s message.

Pride Socks is about being proud of who you are so you have the confidence to achieve your dreams. This can be interpreted in so many different ways and I love that. These socks and the positivity of their message is totally up to you. Every order comes with these cute stickers (shown below) so you can write down your proudest moment and display it proudly. Ultimately, it’s all about feeling good about yourself and your accomplishments.

Owner Rachel Smith was always obsessed with socks even as a child. She was one of five siblings, born and raised by Deaf parents, who revealed that job opportunities and income were limited growing up. They often recycled clothing between siblings and matching, hole-less socks became a commodity in their household.  The challenges Smith’s family encountered bonded them and also established her strong appreciation for diversity in others. As she states on her website, “At Pride Socks, we believe when people are proud of who they are, where they are and what they do in live, they can and will accomplish their dreams.”

So check out their newly revamped website and read about all the positivity at their Proudest Moments Blog.

Funko Pop Culture Vinyl Cuteness Overload

July 29th, 2013 | No Comments » | by kristel

Funko - Minion Dave

Funko was one of my must-visit booths at Comic Con this year. I am a big fan of their vinyl  toys and wanted to grab some of their exclusive toys.

Unfortunately, a gabillion people had the same idea as me and most of the cool SDCC exclusive toys were sold out by the time I checked out the booth on Thursday. Lucky for me (and you), they sell many of their non-exclusive toys on Amazon (they don’t sell it from their official website). I really love their Despicable Me minions, but Funko carries a whole bunch of different pop culture toys! Ninja Tutrles, Disney characters, and more.

Just wanted to share with you all so you can also enjoy the cuteness overload.

July 29th, 2013 | No Comments » | by kristel

Comic Con

It’s been a busy week, but I finally was able to sort through my Comic Con pictures! We didn’t see any panels (learned our lesson from a few years ago when we spent most of the day waiting in line), but we had a fun time exploring the exhibition hall.

It was a great opportunity to discover new artists and designers. This week I’d like to feature some of my favorites. For now, enjoy the pics!

Get Swirly with These Ice Cream Pop Molds

July 26th, 2013 | No Comments » | by kristel

Cute Ice Cream Molds

Yes, these Upside Down Ice Cream Molds might look a little strange, but the end result is beautifully swirly!  I am terrible at scooping ice cream. I accidentally crush the cone, I drip ice cream all over the place, well, you get the picture. My ice cream always looks less than appetizing (although that doesn’t stop me from stuffing my face). I thought these ice cream molds were a pretty smart invention–just fill the swirly part with your favorite ice cream, yogurt, even beverage, screw on the cone, and stick it in the freezer until you’re ready to stuff your face.
