Where To Find Fun Socks - HemdVoorHem Spiri Cotton Socks Lollipop Gift Box

Hi There..... Do you have a sock drawer filled with plain socks, or are you the type of person who rather has fun socks?

I have both in my drawer. We can all use some more fun in our lives besides war, disease, and violence, don’t you agree? So let’s start with cleaning out some of those worn-out plain socks and replacing them with fun socks. I wish everything could be so simple. 😊

Oh yes, I can be serious if I want to be, but it’s a good thing that it doesn’t happen too often. I have always been around people with a sense of humor and witty sarcasm, so you can’t expect me to be serious too often. 😏

Some people don’t get it, though, and that’s where it gets awkward. If you make a remark thinking it’s funny and they look angry at you. There is always the question, did they interpret my joke as a horrible offense? 😦

When I was 21, something like that happened to me on a sailing course in the South of France. The instructor was giving us the names of all the triangular sails on the sailboat. To understand my joke, I will have to give you the Dutch words for them. 😄

The front sail is called ‘voorlijk’ in Dutch. The backside is the ‘achterlijk’, and the bottom is ‘onderlijk’. If you know that ‘voor’ is front, ‘achter’ is back, ‘onder’ is under, and ‘lijk’ is a dead body, you can literally translate this as a dead body on the front, back, and under the boat. 😁

Can you see the humor in it? So I made a what I thought witty remark that it was quite a horrible place, but he didn’t get it. 😬

Everybody laughed except the sailing instructor. Perhaps I could have added 'with all those dead bodies on the boat'. Not sure if you get my drift because I am struggling to keep my head above the water. 😏😀

That's enough idioms for now. Let's talk some more about fun socks. HemdVoorHem sent me these cute cotton socks in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍


About the Spiri fun socks Lollipop Gift Box

Spiri is not so much a brand as a way of life, a vision. Spiri is designed by a talented artist with an impeccable sense of color and style. The stunning designs are made into high-quality items that are not just comfortable to wear, but also carry a deeper meaning.

The Spiri logo depicts the eye: the all-seeing eye that looks beyond the surface, into the depths of things, into the very core, but it is also the mind’s eye that looks towards the spiritual world.

Sustainable cotton socks

GOTS certified cotton is organic, so they have used no chemical pesticides in the cotton's cultivation. But GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) goes further than that. 

The international GOTS certificate not only guarantees the use of organically grown cotton but also that production takes place in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Better for your skin, better for the earth, and better for the employees. The organic cotton feels wonderfully soft and lasts for years. A sustainable choice!

My opinion on the Lollipop Gift Box

What I like most about these fun socks is that you can't feel the seam. If there is something I can't stand, it's having to turn my socks inside out and position them a certain way because the seam touches my toes. I know, it's a trait of a highly sensitive person. Just like I cut out almost all labels of my clothes because they seem to scratch all the time. 😵

There was a slight problem, though, when HemdVoorHem contacted me to ask if I was interested in reviewing a pair of these fun socks. I was a little lost because I couldn't decide which one to pick. 😄

They were all equally fun, so I let them choose for me. Don't you just love surprises? I also just love this cute box with sustainable cotton socks. I am definitely going to be wearing them a lot. 😍

In my package, they also sent me a new treat to try. Sorry to say, this was not for me. At least that's what my husband thought. 😄

Ever since my Gastric Bypass, there are a lot of things I don't eat anymore, like candy bars, for instance. Before I knew it, the Knoppers coconut bar disappeared into his stomach. Safe to say he liked it. 😂

Interview with Fashion Stylist Tyler Minor

Hi There..... Would you mind if I would share another fashion stylist interview? Perhaps you would rather have a fashion designer interview?

No matter what you choose, the outcome is the same because my star for today is both a fashion designer and fashion stylist. 😁

Before I forget, I admit I was guilty of slacking off this weekend, because we went on a brief holiday. I apologize, and it won't happen again. 😜

If you are waiting for new reviews, there is no need to worry, because they are on their way. At the moment I have a pair of socks from HemdVoorHem that I just received, and am testing some hair products from Noughty Haircare Benelux. 😊

Ah yes, and I also have a Beauty Gift Guide coming up soon. Normally I would have shared this at the end of last month, but I didn't get enough responses, so if you still want to be in this next gift guide, leave a comment underneath 'contact me' on the right side of my blog post. 😉

If you are wondering what the cost is for a mention in my gift guide, there is none. Ah yes, I am crazy as Hell, but no need to worry, being crazy doesn't hurt a bit. Anyway, if it wasn't for crazy people, the world would be a bore. 😂

Let's get back to more exciting matters, like my new interview with Tyler Minor, who is the 33-year-old fashion stylist, fashion designer, co-owner of American Paint Hat, and owner of Tyler Minor Studios. 😍

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be?

I’m a fashion stylist and clothing designer.

What made you decide to become a Fashion Stylist?

Since I was a child, I have always been in love with fashion. After design school, I Immediately jumped into styling. For several years, I assisted and started going out and getting clients on my own. Soon I was working for big companies like Amazon, Zappos, Food Network, and then eventually started getting my celebrity clientele.

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Fashion is important to me because it helps tell a story and helps people discover their own identities.
It can be a powerful thing and change lives.

What are your successes and how did you achieve them? 

I’m proud of all of my achievements and consider my whole body of work a success. I’ve achieved things I dreamed of achieving as a child. You only achieve these things through hard work and determination.

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

Brand recognition can be important on a red carpet, but it’s unnecessary.
It helps new celebrities get recognized more through social media and with the press. Though some clients can’t afford expensive designers. So, at the end of the day, it’s most important to make sure your client looks and feels their best.

Describe your personal style of clothing? 

My personal style changes daily. Sometimes I go for a clean-cut business professional look and on other days I’m wearing a vintage band tee and ripped jeans.
Overall, my personal style really just reflects on how I feel that day or
what the day has in store for me.

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

We find personal style through experimenting with fashion.

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment? 

To be honest, I don’t follow trends. I’m more about what looks good on you.

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Be yourself, wear what makes you feel good. Go against the grain, and wear everything with confidence.

Who is your style icon and why? 

I rarely pick favorites, but a few people who have influenced my work have been: Heatherette, Tom Ford, Olivier Rousteing, and 90s pop stars.

Is there something else you would like to share with us?

Chase your dreams, create your own trends, and work as hard as you
can.

Thank you Tylor for answering my questions. If you want to know more, you can check out his Instagram account. 😊

You should also look at American Paint. It houses an unforgettable experience where you design your own hat from start to finish. Sounds pretty cool to me. 😎
