If you haven’t already heard the great news, Nordstrom is selling jeans that look pre-soiled and muddy for $425. Phew! I have been looking for these for years, glad someone has finally filled this void. These Nordstrom Mud Jeans are called Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans (makes total sense to me). If this is your type of thing go ahead and send me your favorite pair of jeans and I will muddy them up for just $100. Genius! Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear...

Amazon continues with their quest to take over the world. Their latest product is a camera named the Amazon Echo Look ($200). After watching the Echo Look informational video, I realize that I am clearly not the target market. This isn’t a security camera but more of a wardrobe helper. Ok? Amazon Echo is still built-in so you can ask about the weather,...

This mammoth RC truck, the Mammuth Rewarron, is somewhere between a UTV and a go-kart. It is over 6.5-feet long, weighs 375-pounds, and is powered by a single cylinder 4-stroke 270cc engine. Not sure where it is made but I believe it is from Hungary. Price tag = $5,500. Having something this big that I have to walk next to to take it to the park seems awesome, but not perfect. If only the Rewarron was just a bit bigger, then I could ride it around a bit. I’m not hoping to replace...

Apparently this is a thing. A beach chair that has a hidden hole for your face and arm slots. This means you can use this chaise lounge on your back or frontside. Perfect for tanning your back while reading a book. Genius. Aptly named the Ostrich Chaise Lounge ($47) and available in blue, green, pink, and red with a weight capacity...

This is a deal that, most likely, won’t last. Just $4.99 (plus free shipping) for a 5-port USB smart charger with 40W of power. Smart chargers work by identifying each individual device plugged-in and giving them the proper charging power. They are also great for minimizing the use of multiple wall outlets and sharing charging power with family/friends. The only downside I see is that it is orange. ...

Your dog needs hydration just as much as you do, maybe more, so keep them in mind on your next outing. This gadget, the Highwave AutoDogMug ($20), makes it easy for both the owner and the pup. The water bowl fills up when you squeeze the bottle. Intuitive for the dog who already knows how to drink water out of a bowl. Heck, it even fits in your car’s cup holder. BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and holds 20-ounces of water. Video of this awesome doggy water bottle after...

Want to drink your cold beer without being harassed or ticketed? The Trinken Lid ($14) snaps on to your beer can and suspends it inside of large t0-go coffee cup from the likes of Starbucks, 7-Eleven, etc… Not only does this hide your beer but it also provides a layer of insulation to help keep it colder, longer. By suspending your beer inside the cup, the layer of air insulates your can, keeping it cold in the summer and your hands warm in the winter.  On a hot...

This taco holder was thought to be extinct. It’s not. The TriceraTACO Taco Holder by KidsFunwares ($13) holds not one, but two tacos. This polypropylene taco dinosaur is dishwasher safe and should make food time a bit more fun. I just ordered two and I don’t even have kids.    ...
