Warby Parker School Bus and Sam’s First Pair of Sunnies

2013-08-10 12.45.28

Warby Parker is in town till Spetember 1! So Sam and I took full advantage of it! And yes, it happens to be that my husband has never owned a pair of sunglasses.

I also made sure to bring my Samsung Galaxy camera with me this time (I left it at home during the launch party and was really bummed out!) The camera was an absolute hit and everyone loved the fact that I could Instagram and Tweet from it! What can I say? I love my Samsung Galaxy camera!

Disclousure: I am participating in a Verizon Wireless blogger program, and received the device and 6 months of service for free, in exchange for my honest opinion. For more information, please click on the Verizon Voices Icon!

So after all this fun we finally decided to get Sam a pair of  Exley sunnies!

Can’t wait to get them in the mail! And thank you Warby Parker for such a generous gift! The bus is parked in Uptown Minneapolis on Lagoon and Girard! Go visit them before September 1 comes around!

One Flew Over Flyover Press

Today I want to introduce Flyover Press! It’s an online store of Midwest inspired apparel and design items! Nick’s (the creator of Flyover Press and blogger at Great Lakes Prep) love for all things Midwest is so clearly seen through every single item listed in the store!

“Located in southwest Michigan underneath planes venturing cross country, Flyover Press seeks to end the coastal bias that leaves the Midwest so often ignored. By crafting made in the USA apparel and posters inspired by the people, places and traditions of America’s Heartland, Flyover Press serves as a way for Midwesterners to display their pride to the rest of the country.

We’re committed to three things, high quality American-made products, excellent customer service and providing products for the people of the regions of this country that are too often ignored. And having fun while we do it. Some of our best ideas are hatched over a couple beers with old friends. So make that four things.

We also love the Midwest and try to support it in as many ways as possible. That’s why we try to produce as many of our products in the Midwest as we can. Our shirts are printed in Indianapolis and while our posters are printed in Connecticut, they’re done by a couple who broke into the business in Chicago. As we add more products to the line we’ll continue trying to seek out Midwest sources. It might not be the least expensive way of doing things but it’s how we believe in doing business.

And that’s why we give back 3% of profits to Midwest-based non-profits. We want to support the area that raised us and we want to spread the love. That’s why we don’t have just one organization we support, but several. While we have a few organizations already selected, we’re always open to learning about the organizations you love”

How amazing is that? I thought I’d share some of my favorite items from the store with you:

Patriotic Midwest Tank (love the corn and the wheat logo!)

I know they are just starting, so they need all the love and support, especially from us, the midwesterners, so spread the word!
