Chic Buds – “Listening never looked so good!”


I was given the opportunity to review chicBuds and I absolutely love them, functionally and fashionably. I chose to review the watermelon white earphones. I picked that color mostly because they match my Hello Kitty Themed iPod so perfectly.

Let me list the reasons why I like these better than regular ear buds;

Number one: These actually stay in my ears! I was always having trouble with regular ones staying put while I was walking, exercising, and cleaning.

Number 2:  They have a retractable cord which is great because with a child, you don’t need to be wasting time untangling when there are things to do between nap times! Note: Do remember to pull both ends at the same time or you will end up with a tangled cord. I did this and felt like an idiot for not reading the instructions. It was easy to fix though, which was great.

Number 3: They sound great! There is absolutely no static whatsoever to ruin your daily podcast, music, or audio book throughout the day.


Number 4: Tthey have wonderful fastening clip so the cord doesn’t bounce around and get stuck on something pulling your buds from your ears. I’ve been sweeping the floor before and that was the case with my regular pair of buds.

Number 5: They look good! Need I say anymore than that? Available in white or black earphones, chicBuds come in five flavors: Blueberry, Grape, Watermelon, Sour Apple, and Marshmallow. I also love the fine detail of the genuine Swarovski Crystals as each set has nearly 100 pieces in place!

Number 6: chicBuds work great not only for your iPod but also for any MP3 Player, CD Player or Portable DVD player or game player, PC, car stereo, TV or home stereo.

These are not only for woman as they also have a line for the trendy dad’s out there called “Rock Buds” available in 4 designs: Rock Band, Rock Star, Wings Like Eagles, and Green Camo. You can buy matching iPod cases on their site too.
These would make wonderful gifts for anyone, graduation and mother’s day is coming up soon! *Hint*

Hip T


My assets are now covered! I wish I could have come up with such a catchy slogan for the company called Hip T myself!

Hip T is company that set out to do something about just that, “Covering our Assets” so that our style won’t fall between our own crack so to speak.

I have a child, so guess what? I am constantly bending over, reaching down, and crawling around to keep up with her. I find myself constantly pulling down my shirts or pulling up my pants. I honestly just stopped wearing lots of my favorite jeans and shirts because I didn’t want to keep exposing myself. It was a sad day when I decided that I just had it with some of my clothes and stored them away to maybe never to wear them again. I even thought of donating them to good will. I had about lost all hope and then…


I discovered the Hip T! Basically, the Hip T is a band of fabric worn under your shirt that adds the look of a layer without added bulk and it hides our assets so we aren’t exposed anymore!

Hip-t comes in three styles, in a variety of different colors. There’s the basic style that looks like an ordinary t-shirt, the Original which has a band of lace at the bottom, and also the sassy prints which feature wild animal prints. I was able to try out the Hip T in the basic style myself in Dark Fuchsia and Aqua. These colors go great with my spring and summer wardrobe. You can also wear this with skirts too for some pretty chic styles!

So I tried these T’s out and they were great! I bent and moved and crawled around and the T’s stayed in place. It is a wonderful feeling of comfort not to constantly have to pull my shirt down or pants up anymore. I am thrilled to be able to pull my clothes back out from the closet that I had retired!

So remember, the Hip T covers bum cleavage, Lengthens Any Top, Hides Muffin Top, and Creates Layers without Bulk. If these aren’t reason enough to own a few Hip T’s, I don’t know what else is.
