Since I haven’t really had the opportunity to introduce myself, I thought I’d take this chance to do so. I’m Dan. This post will let you know a little bit about me in some of my most embarrassing incidents. Hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes. Hell, hopefully I can learn from my mistakes. As the only male editor here, you won’t find me writing about nail polish, shoe trends, or fashion faux pas (I’m sure I’ve committed enough to be imprisoned by now). I have to adapt. So, let’s get to my stupidity.
Makeup is one of those things I probably should own more of, but I hate buying for myself. Good quality makeup is expensive so I often avoid it all together. I’m sure many women feel the same, which it what makes makeup the perfect gift.

I exercise every morning before work. 6:45 AM I’m inside and going to town on the machines. The people who go at that time are all there to actually exercise, so I don’t mind if it’s busy. I, however, made the horrible decision of sleeping in on Thanksgiving and getting to the gym around 9:00 AM. Dear God. Instead of people sweating on the machines, I was greeted by people laughing, conversing, and standing around texting. GIVE. ME. A. BREAK. This is a gymnasium, not a tea party.

But, have you been distracted by all the great ads and deals this week? Keep reading to see the deals that are making me kind-of-but-not-really wish I was shopping today after I eat.
Summary: The Big Blue Live speaker blew me away with its crystal sound, long battery life, and impressive range. Only one control on the device took me awhile to figure out, and I had to charge it prior to its first use. In the end though, I’m thoroughly impressed with it. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for the on the go audiophile in your life.
