New Brand Spotlight: MINKPINK

new brand spotlight, minkpink, minkpink clothing, fashion clothing, women's clothing, minkpink swimwear,

MINKPINK was launched in Australia back in 2005 when founder and designer Rachel Evans decided that girls with a true eye for fashion were being short changed. It seemed unfair to her that only girls with loads of money could afford well-designed clothing. So MINKPINK was born to give fashion girls inspiring and original collections to supplement their own individual style.

MINKPINK’s designs are inspired by both vintage fashion as well as current trends. The result is a fun and slightly quirky clothing line that devoted MINKPINK fans can’t get enough of. As they say, “For the love of MINKPINK!”

Check out their Swim 2013 campaign video below. It’s definitely getting us in the mood for pool season!

Special Delivery to Habitat for Humanity

Zappos saved tons of building materials and assets during the renovation of the old city hall building to donate to Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas. 125 fluorescent light fixtures, 85 sinks, 60 solid doors, 50 toilets, 20 water fountains, and much, much more will now go toward renovating homes in Las Vegas. Our awesome construction crew at Penta Building Group carefully removed the fixtures and assets so that they could be reused.

Tips & Picks for Game Day Entertaining

As the dust from the playoffs start to settle, and the last two teams standing face each other for the big game, football fans across the country congregate to enjoy the competition, food, friends and of course, those awesome commercials!

If you’re planning on hosting a game day party to root for your favorite team (or just enjoy this last hurrah of the season if your team didn’t make the cut!), here are a few tips to get you prepared along with some of our top picks for football fun at home:

It’s all about atmosphere. Make your home more festive than any bar in town by incorporating team colors—napkins, paper plates, serving bowls, pennants, balloons… It IS a party after all! Try having a football ready to toss around between guests during halftime. It’ll get everyone in the touchdown spirit!

Snacks, snacks, and more snacks! Chips and dip are a great game-day go to. Since this IS the biggest game of the year, why not elevate your selection of dips by whipping up something special in a slow cooker? Mom’s chilli anyone?

at home, football, football games, Waechtersbach, DeLonghi, Mitchell & Ness, New Era caps, New Era hats, Bodum, Highbury, Krups, Spiegelau, Waring Pro, Wilson, entertaining, entertaining at home, game day fun, game day entertaining, BBQs, parties, football parties, football party,

1.Mitchell & Ness NFL® hats, 2. Waechtersbach Fun Factory Serving Bowls (Set of 2), 3. Krups Beer Tender, 4. Spiegelau Beer Glasses (Set of 2), 5. DeLongi 5-Quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker, 6. Highbury Whittier 3-Section Tray, 7. Waring Pro Buffet Server, 8. Wilson NFL Game Ball, 9. Bodum Picnic Charcoal Grill

Tailgate favorites are always a hit. An at-home football party calls for BBQ classics, wings and ribs! They keep hungry guests happy…even if their team is on the losing end. Set up a buffet-style table with a heated server, some colorful serving plates and some stick-to-your ribs recipes.  

Cheer on your team with a selection of beverages. Beer and soda are the obvious must-haves for football parties, but make sure you offer lots of cold water, too! If you really want to impress your guests, bring the bar home by serving a traditional foam-topped beer from your personal beer draught tap!
