"Tis a far far better thing doing stuff for other people," Said my favorite character from the silver screen, Cher from Clueless. I would have to agree...so this holiday season lets give gifts with which to eat, travel, and rock out.
Yesterday, I gave a live on-air demo of these apps and goodies on VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live with Nick Lachey (episode available here)....here's what I discussed!
We can argue whether Chicago has the best pizza or whether deep dish should technically be considered pizza...one fact we can't argue is that Lou Malnati's is renowned for their world class deep dish. It has been my favorite for decades and I was soooo excited that I could share my pizza crush with the country. I demonstrated how Lou's will ship their pizza (flash frozen and packed in dry ice) anywhere in the country.(click here) So whether you want a taste of Chicago while far from home, or you want to send an incredible gift to your favorite pizza lover...this will be your new favorite online shopping spot.
And what goes better with pizza than some frosty beverages?!?! Am I right?? It's cold out and we don't want to have to leave our homes to get our beloved booze. Thirstie, the On-Demand Wine and Spirits Delivery, will bring it right to your door. The app is so easy to use and delivery will take place in less than an hour. Just download it right from the App Store and you'll be on your way to Happy-Town sooner than you can say Kim Crawford.
My favorite travel accessory is the 84 Rockwell hip pack. 84 Rockwell is a HOT new Chicago based designer and these bags mean business. They are very high quality luxe leather and made right here in the good ole' U S of A. The best part is that there is a separate pouch for your cell phone (fits an iPhone 6 too) which means I never have to fumble around in my purse for my phone while everyone I'm in a crowded elevator with is forced to listen to my Cat Stevens' "Hard Headed Woman" ring tone.
My two favorite brands on earth got together and created a rockstar spawn. Burton Snowboards and The Frye Company collabo'ed on the Burton x Frye Boot. It's a badass leather high-performance snowboard boot that has the rugged flare of Frye "Harness" cowboy boots. It's everything I could ever dream of in a sporting/fashion accessory and I cannot wait to make a statement on the slopes this year. (As if flying over jumps and landing on my ass and sliding backwards down a mountain wasn't enough.)
Finally, if you're going snowboarding (or skiing... meh) you need a device which can coldly transport your thirst quenching products aka... we need to carry beer and keep it cold. Let's be honest, what's really the first thing you wanna do when you get to the top of the first lift? Get buzzed. Admit it. The Burton Beeracuda bag helps you look super cool while keeping your beer super cold. It's an insulated sleeve that holds 5 beers and one in the koozie. No, it's not only for hitting the slopes, you can use it to bring your stash to a party... or pretend like you're going to yoga class ;) hee hee.
