[dropcap custom_class="wh"]As delicious as it is to have a long, languorous lunch, it isn’t always possible to have two bottles and let the hours slip away. Sometimes we need something snappy. The problem is, a whole set of denigrating values comes with the notion of fast food. Words commonly linked to the term include insipid, low quality, mass produced and so on. It is enough to have you reaching for a bottle at 1.00pm. This snootiness is simply not always justified any more.[/dropcap]

A New Reusable Bag That Is Stylish & Eco

A New Reusable Bag That Is Stylish & Eco

There are so many reusable bags on the market to purchase for your groceries. Some are nice, and some are plain ugly with no sense of style or fashion. Who wants to carry around an ugly bag to be eco? Recently, we discovered a cool bag that looks similar to a plastic bag but made from retired sails. Its called the standard Baggu by the bag company named Baggu. The bag maker partnered up with another bag company by the name of Mafia Bags in San Francisco, CA.  Mafia Bags designs bags made from recycled materials that are durable and lightweight to help avoid elements thrown into landfills. During the production of the reusable standard Baggu, 1470 yards of fabric were saved from the landfill. You don’t want to miss out on this limited edition Baggu bag that holds up to 50 pounds.

Rifle Paper Co Has A Card For You

There is no question about where you can find a greeting card; you can go just about anywhere to purchase a greeting card for almost any occasion. However, do the words inside the card reflect how you feel about that particular person or moment, probably not. 

GT’S SPRING EDITION KOMBUCHA BLOOM

GT’S SPRING EDITION KOMBUCHA BLOOM

Winter is gone, and spring is finally here. Although I must say I greatly enjoyed the winter edition kombucha with rose, blood orange, and hibiscus time doesn’t stop for anything. Recently, I tried GT’S bloom spring edition kombucha filled with notes of elderflower, jasmine, and violet. I’m stuck between which version I like better, but if I had to make a choice right at this moment I would say the spring edition is best. I am a little bias because I am a huge fan of the taste of elderflower.

If you haven’t tried the probiotic tea known as kombucha, you are missing out on all the health benefits. I believe kombucha is one of the best soda alternatives on the market. Conventionally produced soda has no health benefits and often loaded with awful ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, and flavorings. True authentic kombucha is flavored with real botanicals, fruits, and herbs. There are many different brands on the market, but in my opinion, GT’S Living Foods produces the best-unfiltered kombucha that is available almost everywhere. Celebrate the season with a bottle of kombucha filled with the flavors of spring florals that will be sure to delight. Your body will thank you.

Don’t forget to support The Born This Way Foundation by posting a pic with GT’S Spring Edition kombucha bottle and use the hashtag #InFullBloom For more information, on this campaign view video below.

As you may be aware from the proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

[bigletter custom_class=””]We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.[/bigletter]

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation in which a high fashion-meets-down home country boy aesthetic really is necessary.
