Oprah seems to be the bearer of great news for a lot of people – she mentions a book on her show, and the next week it becomes a New York Times bestseller. She drops a note about a certain TV show or food, and it becomes the must-watch or must-make item of the month, making somebody in that business a very happy person.
While I sit here and dream that maybe one day Oprah will do the same thing for my blog, there is somebody in the piggy space of the world who Oprah has mentioned, and has made pretty famous and important almost overnight: the people who created (get this) ORGANIC PIG PAJAMAS!
The lady who created these pig-inspired pajamas was featured on Oprah a while back, in addition to having a blog and everything on her own. Business must be pretty good, too, because the price for a set of piggy pajamas is pretty steep; $89.95, to be exact. I don’t know if I have the kind of money to shell out for piggy pajamas, but… oh, who am I kidding? If it has to do with pigs, I’m probably going to buy it!
Bad pigs, bad pigs,
Whatcha gonna do,
Whatcha gonna do,
When … Angry Birds come for you?
That’s right! It’s not a bad remix of the old theme from the TV show COPS, but a reference to America’s favorite mobile game – Angry Birds!
For anyone who has ever owned a smart phone, you know how insanely addicting Angry Birds is, right? And more than that, you know how incredibly popular and successful it’s become over the last few years.
That’s all good and fine, but the cool thing here is that the folks who spent years perfecting the Angry Birds set of games have come out with a newer, cooler game that is SURE to take the world by storm – Bad Piggies!
Ok guys, I’m gonna need some serious help. See, Halloween is over (duh) and I was sort of hoping to get some Halloween stuff for next year. I figured that if you buy it now, and just store it somewhere for a year, you could save a ton of money on merchandise, right?
Apparently, most stores send back their costumes immediately after Halloween ends (like, that night after the stores close on October 31) and they get some of their money back on whatever they didn’t sell.
I get it, and it makes sense for the stores, but I kind of wish they would leave their extra Halloween gear out for a day or two. I feel like you could really have some fun in a Halloween surplus store!
Blogger Jennifer Baughman came across these sparkly pig purses in Honolulu. Given how flashy these pig purses look, I’m sure they would cost an arm and a leg. Jennifer and I have a commonality in that I too am not a purse girl. I wear the same silver bookbag purse every day and occasionally get teased by my fashion-forward friends. I prefer a bookbag purse over a single-strap purse because I believe in even distribution so that my shoulders won’t be lopsided and my back won’t be strained. I have to admit that I am a sucker for pig stuff and these pig purses are tempting to buy. Too bad I probably can’t afford them.
