Loving Right Now: BlueQ Socks & their Free Stuff Promotion

7 Nov

{Pssst, my Loving Right Now posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything. They are just stuff that I’m totally digging now and thought you would like too. You can check out my previous posts here}

It has finally gotten cool enough to wear socks in Maryland, so I was kind of excited to pop the tags off my new BlueQ pair that I picked up in San Francisco:

New socks. 😍 #styleblogger #blueq #ootd

They made me happy. Like, super happy. So happy in fact that I decided to do a little online shopping on the BlueQ website…and saw that they were running a special:

I first checked out the sale section, and found the Sugar Monster socks and the Cha Cha Cha Fox socks both on sale for $4.99. GET IN MY CART.

In order to redeem their super cool promo, I needed a minimum order of $15, so I then perused the regular priced section. That’s where I found the “You can do it – Coffee” socks. I also couldn’t resist the “Bite Me” apple socks.

To say I was super excited to receive my sock order sounds a little weird, but I WAS super excited! I was also pretty darn curious to see what my $26.96 worth of goodies was going to be…

And here it is:

My free goodies are:

“I Could Use a Sandwich” men’s socks (not online), $11.99
“Psst” bird women’s socks (not online), $9.99
“No, You Act Normal” pencil case, $5.99
Vintage Plaid messenger bag, original price $19.99 on sale for $9.99

I was hoping they’d throw in some more socks, so I’m thrilled about the two pairs they sent. I was a little worried that they’d have cursing on them (a lot of the socks have more colorful phrases) and with Jack starting to do sight words… well, I’d rather him not recognize some of those! The “I Could Use a Sandwich” socks are men’s, so I should give them to Travis or my brother… The “No, You Act Normal” pencil case is super cute and I can totally get some use out of it.

The only item that I don’t have a use for is the messenger bag. It is super cool though — it’s made out of 95% post consumer recycled material. So I’ve decided to give it away to one of you! If you’d like the messenger bag, just leave a comment on this post saying so. If more than one person comments I’ll randomly pick a winner and mail it out.

All in all, the free goodies added up to $38 – $48 (depending on whether you use the sale prices), so their promo was a GREAT deal! If you want to pick something up for yourself or get a head start on holiday shopping, check out the BlueQ website. I’m sure they will be running some more cool promotions soon!

Loving Right Now: TONYMOLY Haeyo Mayo Hair Nutrition Pack

10 Oct

I wanted to do a quick Loving Right Now post of one of my current favorites. I’m totally obsessed with a new conditioner, the TONYMOLY Haeyo Mayo Hair Nutrition Pack!

{Oh, and my Loving Right Now posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything. They are just stuff that I’m totally digging now and thought you would like too. You can check out my previous posts here}

I first read about this conditioner in an article about awesome Korean beauty products that really deliver and immediately went to Amazon to order some to try out. The packaging is totally adorable, and you do kind of feel like you are squeezing mayonnaise on your hair. But, it’s NOT ACTUALLY mayonnaise. The hair mask has nutrition enriched oils, Shea butter and other vitamin packed ingredients. It is super moisturizing and smells like a mix of vanilla and macadamia nuts.

My hair tends to be super dry because of the harsh shampoos I have to use for my psoriasis. Also, I highlight my hair on a regular basis so I like to baby it as much as possible with a super deep conditioner. I LOVE this one. It smells great, goes on nice and thick, and leaves your hair soft and silky (not greasy) afterwards.

I made my original order from Amazon (you can find the link here) but it is currently on backorder for 1-2 months. Yeah, it’s THAT awesome. I stocked up with a second order on iHerb.com (find it here) and THEY are now totally sold out too. This stuff can’t stay on shelves!

Not to worry though, because I found it for you all online at the Ulta website: TONYMOLY Haeyo Mayo. It’s $16.50 on their site, but they currently have a special to buy one and get one for 40% off.

Now it’s your turn to share, what are you totally loving right now?

Loving Right Now

12 Sep

It’s time for a Loving Right Now post of some of my current favorites. These posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything, they are just stuff that I’m totally digging right now and thought you might like too. So, let’s get to it!

{You can check out my previous posts here}

TV Show: iZombie

Let me start by saying, I’m not a zombie person. I typically avoid anything zombie related, so it is super weird that I would fall in love with this show. What can I say, I loved CSI and I’m always down for a bad-ass, smart talking female lead! Here’s the original preview form when the show started in 2015:

I just recently finished season one and started on season two, but there are three seasons on Netflix so far. Season 4 has been confirmed and once I’m all caught up I’ll be able to watch it using the CW app on my Roku. YAY!

Book Series: The Shelby Nichols series by Colleen Helme

Source: Amazon.com

I have Kindle Unlimited (you can read my initial review here) and I have totally devoured the entire Shelby Nichols series over the last couple months. So far there are ten books in the series and I’m waiting with baited breath for number eleven to come out!

The series starts with Carrots where our main character, Shelby, gets shot in the head (while at the grocery store to pick up carrots) and suddenly can hear people’s thoughts. There’s a mob story line, a sexy hit man, an also sexy husband, kids to wrangle and mysteries to solve. You can find the whole series in order here.

Beauty Product: Karuna Face Masks

I received my first set of Karuna face masks in a previous FabFitFun box and I’m totally obsessed with them. I originally got the Karuna Hydrating + Face Mask, but along the way I’ve also picked up the brightening masks and also an assorted pack. They are extra saturated sheet masks that you use once a week and they really do work! I found them on Amazon here but every so often I come across them at TJ Maxx or Marshalls for $10 so I scoop them all up!

Now it’s your turn to share, what are you totally loving right now?

Loving Right Now: Shows I’m Binging on Netflix

8 Jun

It’s time for a Loving Right Now post of some of my current favorites. These posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything, they are just stuff that I’m totally digging right now and thought you might like too. So, let’s get to it!

{You can check out my previous posts here}

I’ve been on a bit of a Netflix Binge over the past few weeks and I wanted to share some of the shows that I’ve been absolutely LOVING:

Limitless (2015 TV series)
There is also a movie, Limitless, that stars Bradley Cooper. This TV show takes place after the events of the movie (which I did not see) and Bradley Cooper’s character makes appearances. The premise of the show is that an average 28-year old man, Brian Finch, gains the ability to use the full extent of his brain’s capabilities through a drug called NZT. Through a series of events, he finds himself working with the cops to solve cases. I developed a crush on Brian Finch (played by Jake McDorman) within the space of one episode and loved watching him grow over the season. I also loved the friendship between him and his partner, Rebecca Harris (played by Jennifer Carpenter).

I was a little worried going into this series, because it was only on for one season before NBC cancelled it. I was hoping it wouldn’t end on a cliff-hanger that would drive me crazy, but luckily the two-part series finale wrapped things up quite nicely, while still leaving plenty of stories that could be told. There are currently petitions for someone to please, please, please pick up the show for season 2, but as of now… it’s done. Still totally worth watching though!

Here’s the series trailer:

Luke Cage (2016 Season One)
I originally got sucked into the Marvel universe of Netflix Originals with Jessica Jones. If you haven’t seen it, DO IT now. After I devoured that show, I moved on to Daredevil and watched both season one and two. Iron Fist came out a couple months ago, but I have literally no interest in it (the reviews are pretty terrible). Luke Cage came out in September 2016 and although I liked his character when he was on Jessica Jones, I wasn’t really jumping to watch his series. I was SO WRONG. I’m currently up to episode 8 (out of 13) and I’m kicking myself for holding off so long.

Luke Cage has super strength and is a bit of a reluctant hero on the series. The show is fantastic and really hooks you in from the first episode. They also flesh out the bad guys, so that you understand a lot about why they do the things they do. Although the timeline comes after Jessica Jones, it isn’t necessary to watch one before the other. All the characters will be coming together for the Defenders in August, so I can’t wait to see how that plays out!

Here’s the series trailer:

Travelers (2016 Season One)
Travis and I needed something new to watch together and somehow stumbled upon this total gem. I didn’t mean to watch this, but Travis turned it on while I was reading a book and within 5 minutes I put my book aside and was glued to the TV. Travelers is a time travel show with a bit of a different twist and it reminds me a bit of Lost, with you trying to figure out the full story as it unravels. We are only 3 episodes into it and Travis is lucky I love him, because I’m keeping from binging the whole thing on my own.

I love this so much and really want to talk about it with someone. So if you guys could watch up to episode 3 and let me know, that’d be great…

Here’s the series trailer:

Tell me, are you binging anything awesome on Netflix?
