Which one?

Here's a situation where the concept seems like a great idea, but the end result is a hot mess, too hilarious, like Crocs. If you have seen the infomercials you know what I am talking about....The snuggie. I laugh every time I think of it and say the name. I don't know which is worse the name or the look. But wait, not only can you get the Snuggie, you have other can get the Slanket, or the Nuddle. I think one of the main differences is in the materials used and price.

The Nuddle is the most expensive at $98.00 but I think it looks the best, doesn't have the Wizard look because it just has slits for your arms, an outer hand pocket and a foot pocket. Its made of microfiber and comes in two neutral colors of latte and chocolate. I think $98 is a little hefty pricetag though. They are offering 20% for Valentines day though.

The slanket is another alternative , is made of polar fleece microfiber and cost $44.95 for adults and $29.95. It comes in about 12 colors and a portion of the proceeds do go to charity.

Now for the most well known, the Snuggie, it's being proclaimed as the "Hottest New Product". The Snuggie is $19.95 and its made of fleece and comes in 3 colors, Burgundy, Royal Blue and Sage Green. You will get also get a free book light when you order one, (oh joy!). Oh and buy one get one free, so you can share the love.

Seriously, I think if the Nuddle was not $98 bucks I would buy it. I am cold all the time. I like the slits and the foot pocket. I think the texture is better, it just seems like a better quality. The Slanket is much longer, more blanket-like but the sleeves are too big. I am kind of diminutive in stature so that would swallow me up and I would have Slanket all over the place. The infomercial on the Snuggie alone turns me off. I don't ever want to see more than one person wearing it at a sporting event. You will look like you are in a cult. For some reason it just has that cheap factor. It just reminds me of a really long backwards bathrobe. I guess its just the newest "it" think out there, either way it is too funny. Here's a funny article which mentions all three products. (for some reason I can't link anything in my posts.) I am having some issues.

Change, done well

Courtesy of the So Haute Blog , here are some great ways to wear your heart on other places than your sleeve. These are stylish ways to show your support for our new President. I especially love the Tory Burch Obama tote, Rachel Roy Scarf and Zac Posen tee. These items can be purchased at All made in the USA too! Also, if you need refreshing on Obama-Biden agenda for the country please visit, it has links to his proposals on everything from Healthcare, to the Economy, and Iraq, very user friendly.

Well, I have made the commitment to blog more, take those random thoughts and ideas and articulate them more (or not, for the good of the community!).I wonder does anyone know I am out here? Am I doing this thing right? I hope it will be more successful for me, because I am a design/decor junkie and I love discussing decor, travel and such. More posts to come, signing off for the moment....
