I was amused by this when I saw it on my friend Jessica's Facebook page. (She's kind of a big deal so when she says she likes something, I take it seriously.)
Dollar Shave Club sends quality blades to your door for a few bucks a month. It was invented by a dude tired of overpriced blades and of forgetting/refusing/denying to buy them each month. It's pretty much how it sounds. For as little as $1 a month (I'm not joking), they send you a new razor. Every month. With blades. I actually took the $6/month razor - it just looked like a better idea - but I am sure the least expensive one is totally acceptable. And in any case, it sure beats the crap bics I buy all the time for too much money and forget to replace, keep too long, or somehow misplace... The whole idea of it just spoke to me.
And if I wasn't already tempted to do it, their video really sold me.
Oh yeah-- they also have BUTT WIPES if you wanna add those to your monthly supply. That video is also awesome:
So yeah, I'm excited to try them out. My first shipment came super fast after my initial order. I am happy to let you ALL know that I plan to shave my legs with my new razor TOMORROW. I'm emphasizing that for the festishists out there. You're welcome.
I came home from work recently to this amazingness:
Behold, the Leis:
I must say - right away my apartment filled with their lovely scent. They were so deliciously fragrant. Imagine being shipped all the way from Hawaii and still being that lovely? I was so surprised. They are packed with ice and lots of protection so they are perfectly in tact upon arrival. Really, really nice.
PLUS, in addition to sending leis, they sent.... nuts.
I really have to thank Aloha Island Lei for the beuaitful surprise. And for inspiring the entire #GetLeid Twitter movement I've so enjoyed laughing over with the SoCal Lady Bloggers. Please be sure to check them out.
Hey, I didn't make up that title. It's the company's slogan.
But that said, I agree -- you gotta get your chunk on.
I was leaving my office for lunch today when I stumbled upon a pop-up stand of delightful treats. I needed a cute little gift so it was fortuitous and I could not resist it anyhow -- it all looked so delicious. So I snapped pictures:
Everything down the caramel is homemade. I tried a sample and it was DELICIOUS. Especially the caramel.
The snacks all have great names, too, like "Tantric coffee" and "Brazen Brittle."
The owner of The Chunky Marshmallow was a lovely person who did not know I was a blogger at first, which inspired me to write about her company anyway. She clearly enjoyed what she was doing and had a lot of enthusiasm and a fabulous blue jacket so I just felt like giving it a shout out.
Check 'em out. Great for small gifts and baskets -- I highly recommend.
