Dollar Shave Club: What You Should and Shouldn't Squeeze the Most Out Of!

Have you heard about Dollar Shave Club yet? I've seen their ads while watching Quantum Leap reruns on tv and immediately thought, "Gosh, he is cute." Being I thought the actor was cute, I paid attention a bit more. Call me what you want but cuteness does get my attention. You can watch him below. 





What a neat concept. Dollar Shave Club (DSC) is not just for men either because, come on, in this day an age women probably shave more than men. It seems everywhere I look, some dude is growing out his facial hair, including my husband. Hopefully women are not following suit growing out leg hair because that is just gross, personally. 



So what is the Dollar Shave Club and why should you care? Well, have you been in the shower about to shave those hairy legs and realized you meant again, to go to the store and pick up a razor that is not as dull as the blade you just chopped a pineapple with? I have and it sucks. Well with Dollar Shave Club all you have to do is sign up and wait for them to show up in your mailbox each month. Cool? Yeah. 



You have a couple of options to choose from too. You have The Humble Twin  that comes with two stainless steel blades, is a great basic shaver and comes with five cartridges a month! The 4X Lover's Blade has four stainless steel blades, will be confiscated by your significant other and comes with four cartridges a month. The Executive is going to be top of the line with six stainless steel blades, provides the butteriest shave and comes with four cartridges a month. 

So all of this awesomeness being said:  DSC's promotion is "We pride ourselves on helping people NOT have to 'squeeze' to much use out of their razors by providing great razors that are shipped right to your door for as low as a buck a month." So I was thinking about some things I wanted to squeeze and not squeeze the most out of and share with you. 



Do Squeeze the Most Out Of:

Lemons: When making a lemon butter sauce, really get in there and squeeze every drop. You are going to need it!

Lime: Mojito, Mojito! This recipe is truly the favorite too. 

All Condiments: I don't care for mustard or mayo, so they will sit in the fridge until someone else uses them but give me some Ketchup and french fries? I'm going to squeeze the life out of that bottle.

Your Vacation Stay: Get there as early as possible and leave as late as you can. Make sure to see and do everything you want and ALWAYS take lots of photos. 

Sleep: Learned this one the hard way. Stop drinking so much. Drink more hot tea and get in bed at a regular time. 


Don't Squeeze the Most Out Of:

Baby Kitties: Super cute and cuddly but PLEASE don't squeeze their organs. Pet lightly until they get older and knock over your coffee into your computer, then you might think of squeezing them. #justkiddingnotkidding

Your Crush: They might believe you to be crazy, unless this is what you want them to think.

Headband Wear: Why must these darn things squeeze the life out of your brain. Take the thing off an let your temples rest. 

Bread: Lightly squeeze to feel for freshness. No one wants to eat a squished sandwich!

Please let me know some things you want to squeeze the most out yourselves. Also what you don't want to squeeze the most from.  I want to know!!

Fall into Black and Gray

I have been in a black mood for awhile and I like it. These last days of summer have been perfect and I can't wait to show you some of the pictures from the last of summer hurrah while in Warsaw, Virginia but first.... something comfy to wear to start the new fall season.

Friday Favorites

This kitchen is almost perfect to me. The Gothic touches make me feel a bit Holier somehow. The dark paneled refrigerator doors and the banquet. It's really is a small kitchen too but feel so regal. I wish I was a princess. 

My husband loves this salad and I think I know why. It's got so much protein in it. Doesn't it drive you crazy when you and your hubby diet at the same time and while you snack on wheat thins and stick of cheese he devours something like this and still loses more weight than you? Pisses me off too. Then he adds BLUE CHEESE to it!?!?! Make it this weekend and smother some of that awesome, smelly cheese and take a damn bite. MMMMMM.....

Personally I'm a bit pissed summer is about over. I love the water and the sun and the boat and the hot sand on my feet and hanging outside. I wish I had an outside space a bit like this to drink one of those soda pops from too.

I so want PURPLE CHINA! 

Need to pitch a moldy picture in my entry hall and thinking I might try my hand at something like this? What you think?

Happy Favorites! What are yours this week?

Fall Look: Short Velvet and Baggy Sparkle

This was also I look I have tried and seemed to have failed at more times than I've succeeded. I also wonder what this girl looks like without her head chopped off and her feet gone? I always have such high hopes for this one. What do you think?

Fall Look: The Green Pant is BACK

When I was a teeneager, the green pant was the one you searched nights, days and weekends for. I'm a short, stumpy girl so making sure my ass and my thighs look good in pants is ALWAYS a challenge. I never did find that perfect green pair of pants but this girl makes me want to try again! What do you think?
