XO, G Wine

Wine lovers rejoice! The lovely Giuliana Rancic from E! News has created a simple and accessible way to drink wine. Have you ever just wanted one glass of wine but found the hassle of opening a wine bottle and dirtying a glass to be too much? I do! Especially when I have misplaced my corkscrew. Or maybe you are just too busy to sit down and crank open a bottle. Now you do not have to worry about any of those things because XO, G Wine is here!

The XO, G Wine website states, “There’s a time and a place for enjoying a full bottle of wine… But sometimes, 9pm on a Monday night isn’t it. With X, G you can finally enjoy that delicious glass of wine without worrying about overindulging. Our 4 shatterproof, pre-filled glasses of premium wine are perfect for those times when just one glass is enough.”

It is wine, one glass at a time! This is perfect if you do not want to ruin a bottle by opening it (we all know its not the same after you re-cork it) or if you are trying to cut down and do not want to be tempted by the full bottle. It is diet season after all. XO, G wine is also perfect if you need to take some with you. Maybe you are attending a BYOB dinner party, or maybe you need party favors for your bachelorette party!

Your wine options with XO, G are a Pinot Grigio, Rosé, Pinot Noir, or a variety pack including two Pinot Grigio’s and two Pinot Noirs. You can find Giuliana’s wonderful wine collection at Walmart for about $10.00. Such a good price!

I can imagine having a lot of girls nights with these beauties! I feel like these wines are also perfect if you are new to wine and not sure which kinds of wines will delight your pallet.

Personalized Necklaces 2.0

I know I have talked about personalized jewelry before, but that is because it is always so cute and thoughtful! One of my very good friends just had a birthday and my friends and I wanted to make it an extra special day, because why not? One thing to know about my friends and I is that we tend to take our jokes too far. That does not mean people ever get hurt; we are not monsters. It means that we drag out our jokes and go so in depth with them that no one thinks they are funny but us. But, who cares about anyone else?

A perfect example of how we take our jokes too far is that we usually get each other gag gifts for the holidays and special occasions, but they are never cheap $1.00 gag gifts we actually shell out a significant amount of cash when we do it. (significant for college kids is $20.00 by the way)

The gift we got for our friend this year was a personalized necklace.. with her fake nickname on it. Don’t worry she loved it and actually wears it every day so it was not a total waste. It is actually a very cute necklace so I thought I would share it!

You can find this handmade necklace through Best Personalized Jewelry on Etsy. It is brass and plated with 18K gold. It will cost you around $22.00 (plus tax and shipping) and has a maximum of 10 letters. The color options are gold and silver. Your personalized necklace comes in a cute little gift box so it is ready to present as soon as you get it!

No need to worry because if for some reason your friend does not like the gift you can return it in 30 days and get your money back!

 

Book Lover’s Rejoice!

I know it is cold right now, but the only thing that is getting me through this whether is thinking about the warm summer months to come. And nothing is more relaxing than laying on the beach reading a book. However, nothing is more irritating than getting the book wet from your day at the lake. Or even worse trying to find a comfortable position laying on your stomach yet trying to keep your pages flat. When that does not work you flip over to your back and try to read while holding the book above your head but then the sun gets involved and you cannot see.

This is why anyone who enjoys a good read, not only on the beach but in any situation, needs the transparent book weight or as it is called on the website, the Book on Book.

All you have to do is lay the transparent cover over the page you are reading. You will be protected from liquids and wind wherever you bring your beloved literature.

One thing that sketches me out about this product is that it ships from Japan, even though it ships worldwide I have just never ordered anything from over seas. The book on book is the 6,490 Yen, which is about $55.40. It is kind of expensive but if you really love book and you are always reading, which mean you are always harming your books, it will be worth it.

There is nothing worse than checking a book out of the library and damaging it. You will always get dirty looks from librarians and will probably have to pay a small yet annoying fine.

Mini Smartphone Printers

Have you ever taken a selfie so fantastic you not only wanted to post it on every social media outlet, but literally post it all over town? Okay, maybe you haven’t wanted to post it all over town but if you had the Fujifilm INSTAX Instant Smartphone Printer you could! This cute little contraption connects to your wi-fi and prints from smartphones and tablets.

It works for both iPhone and Android, so no splitting hairs there! You can print pictures you just took or print pictures off of your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, phone albums, etc. All you need is two CR2 lithium batteries to power it for 100 prints. You can get this gadget for $199.00 at Urban Outfitters.

The only downside is that the film you print it on is not included, and they are not the cheapest things either. The regular, plain film set sizes are $24.00, but there are rainbow film options for $18.00. Which seems strange to me because one would think that the cool, colorful ones would be more expensive than the boring white ones but who knows! I do not price the items I just blog about them

I found this nifty little thing in an article called 25 Tech Accessories You Need for Your Dorm Room. There are a lot of really cool gadgets in here. I personally like the Portable Phone Charger a lot. I use my phone all day long whether I am texting, making calls, or checking my social media accounts. No matter what I am doing I always run out of battery and it is rare that I am in a position to actually charge my phone!

The Portable Phone Charger is only $24.00 it does not actually include the iPhone cable. The charger works for all USB’s so it will charge all kinds of phones and MP3 players. You can find it at Free People!

Partners in Crime

Do you have that one person in your life that you just absolutely love? The kind of person that has enriched your life so much you cannot imagine how you would function without them? I have that kind of person in my life, she is my best friend. You could say she is my partner in crime ;). Seeing these cute “Partner in Crime” bracelets on Etsy instantly reminded me of her.

These are a cute spin on the classic BFF necklaces. As we get older it seems a little childish to wear a typical BFF necklace, you know the one with the hearts torn in the middle? These partner in crime cuff bracelets are a simple and updated way to carry your best friend around with you wherever you go.

The cuffs are sold by LiveLoveLeaf on Etsy. They are gold plated and handmade and come straight from Los Angeles, California (so you know they are trendy). There is also an option to get them in gun metal, brass, and silver/ rhodium finishes. The cost of the set of cuffs is $32.00 You can select different messages to display when you order the cuffs too. These include:

– Partners in Crime
– Best Bitches
– Best Friends (Partners in Crime)
– Partners in Crime (Sisters @ Heart)
– Here’s to the nights I don’t remember with the friend I’ll never forget
– To remind you that you’re stuck with me for life, and to remind me how lucky I am to have a friend like you. Here’s to another year of causing trouble and raising hell together! Partners in Crime

I personally like the Best Bitches option.

If you have more than one best friend there is an option to get three handcuffs for $48.00 as well.

A new spin on an old classic is never a bad idea!
