Fun Findings Friday #170

Hooray for Friday! Despite it being a short work week, this week seemed extra crazy, thanks to a jam-packed schedule just about every day. While I’m certainly ready to kick back and continue my latest Netflix binge (currently watching Narcos), I also have quite a bit of studying to do this weekend because believe it or not – it’s already midterm-time for my grad class in just a few days!

I suppose the timing is pretty good on this, because I certainly don’t need to go out and spend more money after my hefty purchase a few hours ago! Now’s probably a good time to segment into this week’s fun findings, since the first one spotlights where a lot of my money just went – TGIF + pay day!

Apple iPhone 7 and 7S (Pre-Order Today)

I geek out big time when it comes to new Apple products, and today (well really super early this morning/in the middle of the night for me), the iPhone 7 and 7S became available for pre-order. The latest versions of the phone will hit stores and be delivered starting next Friday, September 16, but if you want a shot at snagging one on release day, pre-ordering is the best way to go. I woke up early to get my order in – the countdown is on for delivery day!

Some notable changes in this model include: NO headphone jack (instead new headphones will be plugged into the  lightning charging port and wireless buds to be released in another month), an updated camera that supposedly rivals a DSLR, splash and water-resistant (although I still wouldn’t deliberately put the phone into water), improved battery/sound, and the new iOS 10 software (which is actually released on Tuesday to anyone with an iPhone 5 or later).

Available in 5 colors, the iPhone 7 + 7S are available for pre-order on Sept. 9!

Stitch Fix for Men

I’ve been pretty on Stitch Fix for almost 2 years now, getting some fabulous clothing pieces delivered to my door, so I’m pretty excited about their announcement this week – Stitch Fix for Men! Just like the women’s service, the guys (or us ladies) can complete a style profile and then be sent 5 items to try, receiving a 25% discount if all 5 items are kept. I think I’m going to have to sign my guy up to try it out!

The popular women's clothing service has now expanded to a men's line! Check it out!

7 Illogical Things Everyone’s Done

This Buzzfeed video is pretty spot on! I’m glad I’m not alone in some of these “illogical” things. I’d probably have to go with talking to the TV and/or talking to other drivers as the ones I’m most guilty of. Which one(s) do you relate to most?

Don’t forget to enter to win the fun back-to-school giveaway I posted earlier this week, which includes a Peanuts Tervis Tumbler and Snoopy + Woodstock lunchbox! Keep one for yourself and give the other to a kid in your life (or use it yourself if you want)!

    I’m super excited for the new iPhone, but I still have to wait a few months before I can upgrade!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:30 AM

      Aww bummer! Hopefully they’ll let you upgrade a little earlier than when you’re due for it!

  2. September 9, 2016 / 9:41 AM

    Hahah I totally talk to other drivers all the time!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:30 AM

      Sometimes I wish we could radio right into other cars’ stereo system so they could hear, haha.

    Since I have to change over my phone plan to my soon to be husbands carrier, I am also getting the new iPhone. I can’t wait haha.

      Yay! So excited for new tech toys :) Which model are you going with?

  4. September 9, 2016 / 10:17 AM

    Hahaha I talk to the tv and other drivers waaaaay more often than I care to admit!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:31 AM

      You and me both! At least we’re in good company :)

  5. September 9, 2016 / 10:31 AM

    Good luck on your midterm! I just had one yesterday..So happy it’s Friday! :) The new iPhone looks awesome.. I have a fairly new 6plus, so I’ll probably wait to get it. Definitely will want a full report when you receive yours! :)

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:33 AM

      Thanks, Jackie! I hope your midterm went well! I’m still using the 6 because there wasn’t enough in the 6S for me to justify an upgrade, so I’m pretty excited about getting a new phone! I’ll definitely share details once I get it!

      I’m pretty excited about it too! Thanks for reading, Gracie!

    I want the new iPhone but I have to go through my company to get it……so it may be awhile lol

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:34 AM

      Ahh the suspense! Hopefully it won’t take too long!

  8. September 9, 2016 / 12:40 PM

    Hmm I haven’t got the new software update yet…it says I’m up to date. Oh well. I plan on sticking with my iPhone 6 for a while. This one is actually lasting me a while!!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:36 AM

      It’s coming out this Tuesday, so still a few days off! I signed up for the beta program so I was able to download it yesterday. The biggest noticeable difference so far is notifications and the interface in messages!

  9. September 9, 2016 / 6:15 PM

    I all at once can’t wait until I can get the new iPhone and am like ugh, eye roll, another iPhone. But I know I will buy it, and I will probably love it!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:37 AM

      Haha I think so many people feel that way! I’m a big tech geek so I’m excited for a new tech toy :)

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:38 AM

      My headphone jack’s been driving me crazy so I think I’m ready to part with it! I have the 6 too but I love tech things so after having this one for 2 years I’m ready for a new model, haha.

    Ok, so Stitch Fix for Men is such a great idea! I think I’ll have to get this for my hubs! And the new iPhone 7’s are so cool! Thank you for sharing your favs for the week!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:38 AM

      Isn’t it?! You’ll have to let me know what you guys think of it after you try it!

  11. September 10, 2016 / 9:10 PM

    I love the idea of Stitch Fix for men–my husband wears SO many suits for his job, but his casual wear tends to be a bit of a uniform (and pretty boring). I’d love to see him get some new suggestions!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:24 PM

      You should give it a try! It’s always nice to have a few new pieces – at least for the guys to try!

  12. September 11, 2016 / 7:36 AM

    I just laughed so hard at that Buzzfeed video haha I talk to other cars all the time! If only they actually heard me :(

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:24 PM

      I’m glad I’m not alone :) I wish I could microphone into other cars’ radios sometimes, haha.

  13. September 11, 2016 / 7:27 PM

    EEK! I have an iPhone 6, and think I might want to upgrade to one of those new super sleek 7s.

      You should do it! 2 years is a long time when it comes to technology :)

    I can’t wait for my new phone. I have been dying with my low storage on my current phone. And, I LOVE that Stitch Fix is clothing men now. I just got my first box and LOVED it! Can’t wait to see what my hubby will look like after I get him back in fashion.

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:28 PM

      I know the feeling, Amber! I can’t wait to hear what you/your hubby think of Stitch Fix for men – I love the boxes I get too!

  15. September 14, 2016 / 10:25 AM

    I’m pretty excited about the new iPhone. I downloaded iOS 10 and I love i!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:27 PM

      Same! It’s the best iOS update in quite some time!

  16. September 14, 2016 / 5:21 PM

    OOO I have stitch fix and LOVE it, but I had NO idea that they had it for men too. I’ll have to share with the hubs. Thanks for sharing, girly!

      It’s brand new! I can’t wait to try it out for my guy too – I hope yours loves it!

  17. September 18, 2016 / 10:25 PM

    Yay for new tech! The Plus seems so huge to me! I’m not sure I’d be able to move to a screen that big, haha.
