Karmin Crash Your Party

It’s always great to see talented people get recognition, and that is why it is so great to see the online YouTube sensation, Karmin, finally get the credit that they deserve. This duo began showing off their musical talents through YouTube videos, and their obvious musical gifts were easily recognized and they now boast a hit single, Crash Your Party, which is available on iTunes, as well as a fast paced music video to accompany the song.

Nick an Amy are the two that make the music possible. Their single has even been featured recently on Amazon as the hit song of the day. They met each other while attending college and began writing music together and collaborating, and well, the rest is history! Most of their early music that they showed off online were covers of popular pop songs. With a huge fan base that is ever growing and a promising career in the music industry, you are sure to hear a lot more from Karmin in the near future.

The Hunger Games: Safe & Sound

With the anticipation of The Hunger Games movies just months away everyone was excited to hear about a new single released from the soundtrack that features Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars! It was quite shocking to learn that Taylor Swift is going to be a part of the original motion picture soundtrack, but then again they do need amazing artist to assist the hopefully amazing movies that they have made to accompany the fans of the book series. As of now no other news about the soundtrack has been released, but you can buy this song on iTunes now! The new question that remains is who else will be on the whole oficial soundtrack once it is released? That is a question that only Lionsgate, and time can answer!

MiiBottle

A major problem in most modern-day households is the identification of whose drink is whose. I can speak from past experience that this is something that has went on throughout time and didn’t seem to ever have an end in sight. The United States in particular is the largest purchaser of bottled water in the entire world, that should say something for itself. Around 70 million bottles of water are purchased daily in the U.S. and nearly 60 million of them end up in the trash. A contributing factor are those bottles thrown away because you simply don’t want to drink out of someone else’s bottle.

One rising company is changing the way we identify our bottles and making it easy and fun to keep track of which drink is yours! MiiBottle is a simple and easy to use system of identifying your bottle. You simply take one of their variously colored snap-on bottle identifiers and clip it onto the bottle with no hassle or instructions other than that needed. They also boast a neat dolphin design making it that much more entertaining just to regard a bottle as yours. But you may be wondering, what makes MiiBottle such a great company?

Well, for starters their products are made of 100% recycled material! It’s great to know that you have a product that you will actually use, but it makes it that much better to know that the product that you are using is made of recycled material! Another cool thing about this company is, they have solved an issue that is simple yet bothersome, and they have done so in a very innovative way!

We have had the opportunity to try these ourselves and they are as simple and easy to use as they look. You will notice that they have a firm snap around your bottles lid, so there are no worries about them falling off of your bottle. The colors are also very vibrant and look great, especially when there are multiple bottles using them! The packaging is simple and conveys the same overall idea of simplicity and problem solving and lets you know the true purpose of this life changing product, to simply make your everyday life easier, save you money on bottles you may’ve thrown away and provide a fun solution to an age old question, “Is that my bottle?” Now you will know, “Yes, it’s MiiBottle!”

Solé Bikes

Solé Bicycle Co. was created by two best friends in college who were fixated on making things more simple, and better yet using the small things that were accessible already. They wondered a simple question that they soon found the answer for, why were these simple and elegant bicycles so expensive and not easy to obtain? They wanted to change this and make a bicycle company that offered simple, unique, and affordable bicycles to the entire world. To this date they have sold and shipped bicycles to all every single state in the United States and to over 20 other countries.

When you think of bicycles, the image of a clunky and expensive bike usually comes to mind, Solé Bikes are unique in the fact that they are designed simply and made to accomplish everyday tasks such as getting you where you need to go with some of the highest quality materials available. It goes without saying that Solé Bikes have much more “sole” than most other bicycles in the market today. It seriously comes down to making a product that we all know and love easier to use and better looking, which is something that Solé Bikes accomplish with pride!

It’s not only healthier to ride a bicycle everywhere you go, to work, shopping, school, etc., but it is also much more particle and inexpensive! Think about it, would you rather spend time getting in a car, starting it up, shifting gears and doing all of that complicated stuff just to go down the road for one thing you may be needing, or would you rather grab your stylish bicycle and ride it, not using any gas at all, and get the same results? I think the answer is quite obvious. Solé Bicycles make affordable and good looking bicycles for the masses, it’s a no brainer, if you want a bike with “sole” then Solé is the way to go!

NOOKA Mindstyle

Looking for something different to accessorize with? Nooka has the answer! They have created an entire company based on the idea of being different and looking great while doing so. The products that they sell boast a modern and simplistic look, while also pertaining to the functionality of everyday use. They create fun and creative ways to make everyday task, such as checking the time on a watch, more exciting. Their lines range from watches, to eye-ware, all the way to other types of apparel. Their product lines have grown over time, and new and innovative products are definitely in the future of Nooka.

While some may say their products are a little too ahead of our time, meaning they look too futuristic, Nooka thinks otherwise and is proving that with their continuing success in the world of modernism. Most of their products are a little more expensive than their competitors, but that is simply because the quality and design is superior at Nooka. It may cost a little more to get a Nooka product, but you seriously get the look that you pay for. While I must admit some of their products will more than likely make you stand out everywhere you go, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, Nooka makes products specifically for those who want to stand out.

Celebrities are more than willing to wear Nooka products and show off the brand, in fact Miley Cyrus has been seen wearing their sunglasses with everyday clothes, making them the focal point. It’s not hard to see how Nooka is taking this generation by storm, and it’s not too hard to see how they will only continue to succede in a world where being different and looking ahead of your time is not only acceptable, but celebrated. With the mindset of “mindstyle”, Nooka is making a lasting impression.

MOO Makes An Impression

There are so many different ways to make a statement anymore, but the simplest and most formal still remains giving someone a business card or calling card. It’s simple, to the point, and quite useful. One company by the name of MOO is making giant leaps in providing high quality, professional business cards and other quality paper goods. It’s hard enough to find an affordable company that sells custom business cards, much less one that does it with so much class and design skill.

They have a qide range of designs to choose from, ranging from plain colored backgrounds with text all the way to intricate pop art designs. It’s not hard to see why this little company is rapidly taking over the market. Most all business have business cards for their employees, and now more than ever students are using them as a way to exchange information in case a quick study session is later in need. It’s quite possibly the best way to keep in contact with people through their information. MOO is literally making the competition MOOve over! They offer so much more than business cards though! They even offer personalized stickers!
