Life of Crime Starring Jennifer Aniston + $15 Fandango Gift Card Giveaway!


Life of Crime, the new caper comedy from legendary author Elmore Leonard starring Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Will Forte and Isla Fisher is coming to theaters, on demand and iTunes August 29th!

I personally absolutely adore Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Now You See Me), and any movie with Jennifer Aniston is usually pretty funny, so I'm really excited about this movie!

About Life of Crime

"When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard."

Book Review: What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman


What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding is a memoir written by Kristin Newman, a single, childless, never married, 30-something comedy writer that has worked for TV shows such as That 70's Show and How I Met Your Mother. While all of her friends were getting married and having babies, Kristin wasn't ready to settle down, and instead traveled to other countries, often alone, and engaged in lots of "vacationships" while she was there.

The title of the book immediately got my attention. Then I read the first paragraph and I knew I needed to get this book:

"I am not a slut in the United States of America. I have Rarely had a fewer-than-four-night stand in the Land of the Free. I don't kiss married men or guys I work with, I don't text people pictures of my genitalia, I don't go home with boys I meet in bars before they have at least purchased me a couple of meals, I've never showed my boobs for beads. I do not sleep with more than one person at a time, and, sometimes, no more than one per year. In America. But I really love to travel..."

Right off the bat I knew this book was going to be raunchy, hilarious, and brutally honest, and I was not disappointed.

I loved reading about all of Kristin's adventures. We get to follow her in Russia, Argentina, Brazil, Iceland, New Zealand, Israel, and many more. She pretty much always hooks up with a local, has an amazing time, and then goes back home to her Match.com profile. We also get to hear about all of her humorous and completely relateable dating mishaps in LA, and get a peek at what it's like being in the writer's room for big sitcoms.

Overall, What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding is a great book if you are looking for something to read that's entertaining, laugh-out-loud funny, and yet at times a poignant look at relationships and dating. However, it definitely isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. If you're the prudish type, then I wouldn't recommend this book, because it does contain plenty of sex, promiscuity, curse words, and some drug use.

Novica Review & $50 GC Giveaway!


Novica is an amazing website where you can buy unique handmade goods from artisans all over the world. This gives talented people from across the globe the chance to provide for their family and build a sustainable business doing a craft that they love. It also gives us the ability to choose to buy one-of-a-kind, genuine products that have a story behind them. It's a breath of fresh air compared to the usual mass produced items, that we have no idea where they came from, who made them, or under what conditions. This gives us the ability to say no to sweat shops and child labor, and yes to fair trade.

I also love being able to embrace all of the different cultures represented and reflected in each item. Novica has products from artisans in West Africa, India, Mexico, Thailand, Central America, Andes, Brazil, and Bali & Java. They have jewelry, fashion, home decor, paintings, and other unique gifts.

Novica was kind enough to send me a $50 gift code that I could use on anything on their site. I honestly spent so many hours looking through all of their goodies. My wishlist on Novica just kept getting longer and longer. Some of my favorite finds include:

A beautiful handcrafted and handpainted batik robe from Indonesia made by a very talented woman named Desak Nyoman Parwati.

An adorable wood carved sculpture of a peaceful looking meditating cat. Made by Nengah Sudarsana, also from Indonesia, who shares his deep love of animals through his sculptures.


This hand blown glass pitcher is a practical work of art. It's gorgeous and fun in design and can be used in your every day life. It's made in Mexico by Javier and Efren. I have bought glasses from them before, and they are great quality. 

My Review!


I ended up deciding on two pieces of jewelry. They both arrived in these pretty little gift bags all wrapped up inside. They also both came with little booklets that had information about the artists.


I got a handmade pearl strand necklace called Debutante made by Somluck Komolmith in Thailand. The necklace is short in length, measuring only 17.25" long. It can sit right around my neck, like a choker, or it can be adjusted a little bit. I think it's a perfect classic piece, that every woman should own. It is made with cultured pearls, cubic zirconium, rhodium plate and sterling silver.


I also got these White Aster Natural Flower Button Earrings that were also made in Thailand by an artist named Danai. I always love the jewelry that Danai makes. I've actually gotten a necklace from him before. These earrings are really unique and beautiful. They are actually made with real flowers that are coated in resin, so they last forever. They are attached to stainless steel posts and backs.

Giveaway!

Idakoos Custom Mug Review!



Idakoos is a website where you can create your own custom t-shirt design or choose from the huge selection of designs already made by users. Not only can these designs be featured on a t-shirt, but they also have hoodies, baby onesies, aprons, mugs, and tote bags. You can literally spends hours looking through all of the designs that Idakoos has to offer. They have designs that feature funny slogans, religions, animals, names, hobbies, sports, zodiac signs, occupations, and much more.


Since I love my dog Zooey so much, I thought a Chihuahua themed mug would be cool. Not only do they have over 70,000 dog related designs, but they have designs featuring 250 different dog breeds, and over 300 Chihuahua designs alone!


The mug that I picked out says "New designer shoes: $200, Emergency Surgery: $2000, Bankruptcy: $Everything, your Chihuahua that never abandons you: priceless." I thought this design was really cute. Plus, if you know me, than you know I'm crazy for chihuahuas, so this mug is perfect for me. I was even able to customize the background color, so of course I chose pink!

The color and quality of the graphic is flawless. The mug is made of ceramic and is also perfect quality. I've put it in the microwave to heat up tea and I've put it in the dishwasher a few times already, and the print hasn't faded or anything.

The prices at Idakoos are actually really affordable. The mugs, aprons, and tote bags are only $13, the baby onesies are $13-$15, the t-shirts are $15-$18, and the hoodies are $33-$36.

Not only can you buy these awesome creations, but you can create your own designs for free and sell them. That's right, Idakoos will showcase your art to the world, they will take care of everything, from printing to delivery, and customer service, and you get to make a profit!

To keep up with Idakoos, you can follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and their blog.

Okabashi Indigo Marina Flip Flops Review!


I love wearing sandals and flip flops, but let's face it, they aren't good for your feet. Thankfully, Okabashi makes sandals that are not only stylish, but are designed to promote correct weight distribution, support, and feature an anatomically correct therapeutically contoured insole. All Okabashi footwear is reflexology-inspired and designed to ensure the most enjoyable experience and comfortable fit.

Wearing unsupportive shoes can cause many foot and back problems including Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs, Bunions, Hammar Toe, Tarsal Tunnel, Pronated Feet, and many more. Okabashi shoes help prevent these conditions.

Some other features of Okabashi include:
  • Durable, lasts 2-4 years.
  • Vegan friendly
  • 100% recyclable
  • Made in the USA
  • Affordable at at prices ranging from $14.99 - $22.99
  • 2-year guarantee

I chose the Indigo Marina Flip Flops because I love the zebra print straps. They also come in many other patterns and colors. They are very cute on and match with everything. I live in Florida, so as you can imagine, I wear flip flops year round. I know I'll be getting plenty use out of these. 


They are my new favorite shoes, because they are literally the most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn. As you can see the insoles feature strategically placed beads to massage and stimulate the feet. They also have an ergonamic footbed, defined heel cup, superior arch support, and toe comfort.

They are made with Okabashi's signature Anti-Slip, Anti-Odor, Vegan-Friendly, Latex-Free microplast material, making them durable, waterproof, and even dishwasher safe.

Overall, I am so happy to have these shoes in my life. I love that I don't have to sacrifice style for comfort and I can feel assured that the health of my feet aren't at risk because of them. I also love that they are environmentally friendly. Once I do wear them out, which shouldn't be for another 2-4 years, they can be recycled, unlike most shoes that end up polluting our landfills for hundreds of years.
