Fancy Box

Fancy, the website that has been bringing us exceptionally amazing products and goods for quite some time has users in awe yet once more with their new subscription box! Anyone who has ever used the website knows how it works, but just in case you have somehow missed out and never used it before, here’s a quick rundown. HIgh quality and often high priced items are posted to the website and once you create an account you are able to click the button that says “fancy” on each item that you…well, fancy. You are then able to go back to these items later on or purchase the item. It’s a genius website that has claimed numerous hours of my time spent.

So what’s in the box? Good question, you’re going to love the answer! You know how a lot of subscription boxes send everyone the same thing each and every month? Fancy does not do that, you have the option to choose the category that you would like to be sent items from, for example: Men, Women, Home, Gadgets, Media. This is a cool twist on the subscription box idea because with such a vast catalogue like the website has, it would have been a shame not to diversify the items included in the boxes. The final and most important thing that we are sure you care the most about is getting the bang for your buck, right? Each month you only pay $30 and though that is on the higher end of some subscription boxes, you get $60+ worth of goods in your box every time.

The final verdict, get this box! We have yet to see a box that has such a vast selection of goods included in it, sends expensive and high quality items to you once a month, and does it for only $30.

Tea and Sensibility

Tea and SensibilityNothing says that fall has arrived quite like a nice hot cup of tea. One company, Tea and Sensibility, sells organic and aromatic teas that are sure to make any tea lover feel like they’ve found their dream cup of tea. With a variety of flavors and the option of either whole leaf or bagged tea there’s something for just about anyone.

When you get your order in the mail you truly feel like something special has arrived, and that’s because something special has. The packaging is tremendous and really shows that the people at Tea and Sensibility really care about their product and want you to have the best cup of tea possible. Another great thing about the teas coming in such cool packaging is that they are ready for gift giving and this holiday season is the perfect time to spread the joys of tea.

The main thing that you will notice upon opening your new teas is that they smell just as amazing as they taste. The blends of natural herbs in the teas from Tea and Sensibility are very aromatic and make the experience of drinking a cup of one of their Tea and Sensibilityblends of teas even more special. If you are like us and love the smell of a great blend of tea just as much as the taste, then this is just one more reason for you to order a special blend of tea from Tea and Sensibility.

It’s rare that you find a company that cares so much about their products and their customers, and on top of that has a product that is truly worth bragging about. Tea and Sensibility is one of those great places to buy tea from that makes you feel special in every way from the packaging to the last sip you take of your perfectly blended cup of tea! Be sure to check out their blends of teas this fall season and enjoy one of the best cups of tea you’ve had in a long time!

You can visit their shop online at Etsy or their Facebook page for more information.

SneakPeeq

SneakPeeqWe are all becoming ever familiar with online shops that are member exclusive. Especially those where you can join regardless of who you are, you just have to go through a pesky registration process. Well, one online shop is taking that marketing strategy, but adding in their own little twist. SneakPeeq is a new website where each day you get around 20 or so “peeqs” that let you peek at the price of the item you are interested in. You earn badges and in effect cool deals along the way. Get this, for signing up you get $10 + a free welcome gift that is a nice little ring. Now, I’m a guy, so I felt a little left out with the welcome gift, but I signed up for it anyway to test and see if it was in fact 100% free as a welcome gift, and in fact it was. Already got the ring in the mail, have no use for it, but if I may make one suggestion to them, add a welcome gift that works for guys or girls or an option for something else for guys. Regardless, it is free, even shipping. I also found that when you go to place your first order and use your $10 credit, you can do a quick option to post to Facebook and you will also get free shipping. I got a Bamboo Bottle that cost around $20+ for literally $4 after my credit, free shipping, and a discount for liking their Facebook page. So if you’re looking for some amazing items, on an affordable budget, check out SneakPeeq!

Toast Pop Guy’s Favorites: Modern Black

Modern is a great look for anyone, and of course we all have our favorite things. It just so happens that I love modern things quite a bit. I like minimal and simplistic looks as well as items that contribute to the overall style of the modern look.

(1.) Sony Piiq Earbuds – Sony has developed a new line of earbuds by the name of Piiq that not only look great, have great sound, and offer neat functions not accompanied by most other earbuds, but they also have a wide variety of choices at a very affordable price. ($13 directly from Sony)

(2.) Blackberry Bold 9650 – I’m not necessarily suggesting that you go to your cell phone provider and switch your phone over for a Blackberry, you still have to have a phone that works for you and what you like (ex. keyboard, touch screen, camera, etc.), but do keep in mind that a good looking phone is half the battle most of the time. ($550 w/o contract)

(3.) Capsule Case Wallet – Capsule Case has been making a great alternative to the traditional wallet for quite some time now! Though I have trouble fitting cash in mine sometimes, it is perfect for credit and business cards. Keep looking classy and modern while saving the functions you need in a wallet. They offer many different colors in their line of modern wallets, but I like to keep it simple and so I went with a traditional black color. This wallet not only looks fantastic, but feels sleek and appropriately sized in your hands and pocket. ($15 varies by store)

(4.) Moleskine Sketchbook – If you’re like me, you love to sketch, but you hate carrying around a huge sketchbook with pages that smudge your wonderful works of art. Well, that’s where this little guy comes in handy. Moleskine makes my favorite line of books on the market, their paper is top of the line and does not smudge your work, especially when you use a sharpie pen (I love those!). They offer notebooks, planners, and many other types of books, as well as sizes, but you can’t go wrong with the medium sized Moleskine Sketchbook. ($15 varies by store) 

 

Baggu For Your Laptop & iPad

It’s no secret that here at Toast Pop we love BAGGU, we don’t go to the grocery store without them, but we have some news to share! BAGGU now offers a line of cases for your laptop and iPad! We know one thing for sure, they are high quality and very durable, just like their bags! They come in a variety of cool colors, as one might expect, and fit a variety of different sized computers. It goes without saying, the iPad ones just come in one size, since there is only one size iPad on the market. The color choices are fun and brilliant just like all of their other products, another thing you don’t have to worry about with BAGGU is the color of their products, even the darkest colors they offer look fantastic and stand out. They continue to amaze us all with simplistic and functional products that look good! My only question is, what will BAGGU come up with next? One thing’s for sure, we will be waiting to hear about it, whatever it may be!

UZO Umbrellas

One doesn’t generally take into consideration what kind of umbrella they are using in todays market. There is such a problem with mass production of cheap quality products, that the most functional are left unnoticed. UZO Umbrellas is making a large impact in changing that. The way you see umbrellas will never be the same. Think about it, an umbrella is quite possibly one of the most useful accessories to have when leaving the house on a dreary day, but it can be a frustrating one if you are using a cheaply made one.

Taking the umbrella a step further, UZO Umbrellas is turning this useful accessory into a fashion statement with their brillant line of colors to choose from. One major feature that makes a UZO Umbrella better than most all others is it’s ability to protect the user from rain completely by leaving no part of the area above your head exposed. It was brilliantly thought of and conceived by Ronald Obmaces, a fantastic designer and engineer.

What other umbrella company with those features can boast about owning 24 patents worldwide? None come to mind. It’s quite easy to see why the UZO Umbrella would be a magnificent choice to keep you dry and looking better than anyone else holding an umbrella on a rainy day.

A Whimsical Twist on Practical Houseware

Wolfum creator Annabel Inganni spent nine years in apparel design before her designs took an interesting turn in 2010. Inganni is now creating household items like linen napkins, bookends, and coasters, but her flair for the unique provides a whimsical and stylish twist to these seemingly traditional pieces.

Los Angeles based Wolfum makes simple, everyday products from organic cotton, recycled poly twill, and FSC certified walnut. Quality materials mean lasting items, and lasting items mean less replacement and waste. If that wasn’t enough, bold patterns and colors like sage, olive, and navy adorn each hand-made product.

Wolfum’s collection of unique linens have a timeless appearance, with patterns that could have easily been taken from a trunk of beloved vintage items or used to embellish a modern tabletop. Wolfum’s colorful animal bookends and wall hangers also add a fanciful feel the the collection. Tigers, rabbits, coyotes, and a slew of other creatures in a variety of delightful patterns and colors would be perfect for a child or adult.

Whether it’s a mix-and-match collection or a coordinated set, Wolfum products are Inganni’s answer to a boring room. U.S. made and built to last, Wolfum’s whimsical products can be purchased at California shops like ST&NDARD GOODS and La La Ling, as well as Wolfum’s website.
