Do you WishWishWish for Free Vivi Dot?

One of my new favorite blogs, WishWishWish.net posted a contest for some free Vivi Dot items over the weekend. Hop on over to her site and comment on the Vivi Dot post to be entered to win.
Carrie has a wonderful fashion focused blog that highlights her shopping adventures, what she wears, and various other things that inspire her daily life as an 18 year old college student in the South-west of England. Be sure to add her to your blog list as she's definitely one to watch!

Oh and by the way... I can't get enough of British English vocabulary. Hair grips! It makes perfect sense and isn't that much different than what they're called in America, but for some reason it sounds oh so much more charming.Pin It

I'm Proud to be an American!

Wow, it's been quite some time since I've said that! I think the last time must have been in an elementary school assembly when we sang that song during the Gulf War. Don't get me wrong, there have definitely been moments where I've been proud to be an American since then, just not so overwhelmed by it that I felt like I should say it out loud (or type it). I think that's why today is especially noteworthy and exciting. I have a feeling we'll be seeing an influx of red, white and blue clothing and accessories. It's been a very long time since half of this country has shown some pride so I think we'll see people starting to flaunt it more. Since this is the Vivi Dot blog I thought I'd celebrate with some red white and blue patriotic products. Okay, the red and white kitties are a stretch, but they fit within the color theme.

I'm Thrilled!

I'm ecstatic to announce that my Vivi Dot cuff links made 'The List.' The San Francisco Thrillist list to be more specific. According to Mediapost.com, "Thrillist targets young 'successful' men with tailored product and service recommendations in the areas of food, drinks, services, gadgets, gear, sports and travel." It is often likened to the male version of DailyCandy though unlike that publication you can't pay to be featured.
Or as Thrillist puts it...
We only cover what we like.
We're not going to waste our time or yours with things that suck -- you already have your job for that. So we don't write reviews, just recommendations, and because we painstakingly wade through the crap to unearth greatness, you get exclusively the best of your city's food, drinks, gear, services, entertainment, travel options, and events, like booze cruises, and a divine concept surely birthed on a booze cruise -- stripper cruises.
So yay, they like Vivi Dot!
Here's what they had to say:
Handmade-to-order in SF, these cheeky little guys are one inch 'round, and covered in fabric emblazoned with stuff like saffron yellow stegosauruses, blue propeller planes, and a pair of traveling gnomes donning beards and red caps (as opposed to those gnomes who wear mustaches and fezzes).

I have some other PR related posts coming soon so it may just be time for an official press section!Pin It
