When it comes to shoes, I'm usually pretty hard on most companies since shoe manufacturers are notorious for violating labor and environmental laws, or even just pushing their boundaries. Too many companies have made their fortune on the backs of slave labor and sweatshops, not to mention wasted so many resources to do so. But if there's anything I love about the power of social media and pressure, it's that it's forcing companies to really care--or at least behave as if they do!--about the world around them.
We've talked about how much fun fandom-based goodies are here at eShopper Forum many times, but I just learned about a company that I'm in love with and I had to share! It's called Fortune Cookie Soap, and yes, the company sells soaps shaped like fortune cookies and I could geek out over those alone, but they also have a bunch of fandom-based personal care items, bath goodies, toilet sprays and more. The company has a Facebook group to help showcase their sales and releases, and you can even order a monthly subscription box featuring a new scent every month.
We often find ourselves shopping for the perfect birthday, anniversary or holiday gift, but what about presents for stress relief? Who do you know, after all, who isn't suffering from some sort of stress, anxiety or even depression? Our current political climate is thought to be to blame by many people for so much widespread stress, but our modern lifestyles are also to blame. Our nutrition, sleep, exercise and basic needs often are neglected, and for what? A fast-paced age of tech where every notification seems so important?
Smart gadgets are all the rage, and they range from moderately helpful to life-changing to simply a waste of space. Many smart inventions make us wish that we'd thought of them first; you never know which ones will turn into huge money-makers. This list of smart gadgets may have an item or two for your particular wish list!
If you buy Legos at all, you are already aware of how pricey the sets can be. My daughter loves Legos but only gets them as gifts on big holidays and birthdays, unless she saves up for them on her own, due to their price. So the price of the new green Legos, made out of sustainable plant-sourced plastic, really isn't a shocker, and the theme of the set, which is LEGO Creator Expert Vestas Wind Turbine Building Kit, isn't a surprise, either.
Amy Jandrisevits is a woman with a dream: a dream that every child, no matter their gender, body type, ethnicity, age or any other characteristic, should have a doll that looks like them. It's a beautiful dream and it's already made many children very happy.
Valentine's Day is just a few days away! Do you have gifts lined up for your sweetheart(s)? This year, my husband and I decided to try out a couple of date box subscriptions. Many boxes offered half-price rates a few weeks ago if you signed up in time for Valentine's Day, so that's what we did.
Normally I don't get excited for sales unless they're at least 30% off or a BOGO offer, but when it comes to really quality items, I will totally take 15% off.
Between May the Fourth, announcements about new Star Wars movies and the third installment of Rey's saga coming to theaters this year (in which John Boyega just teased us about filming his most shocking scene!), Star Wars is on everyone's brain, so it's no wonder that the Star Wars merch is everywhere. There are new goodies featuring Darth Vader, General Leia and everyone we know and love being made every day and it's an exciting time to be alive.
