Fun Findings Friday #171

Happy Friday! Apologies for the unexpected absence this week – it’s been a busy one! Fortunately my finance midterm is now behind me so I’m free to have a fun weekend that doesn’t involve quality time with a textbook and notes. Woohoo! Ted and I also celebrated our 8-year anniversary this week (CRAZY!), my new iPhone’s arriving at some point today, and I was able to do a little more planning for my mom-daughter Europe trip (less than 3 months to go!), so hooray for lots of good things! How was your week? Any fun plans for the weekend?

Let’s get into this week’s fun findings.

Society 6 iPhone Cases

New iPhone release means time to go shopping for a new case! I purchased the cutest design from Society 6 earlier this week and am anxiously awaiting its arrival (as well as the new iPhone 7)! I couldn’t resist going for this Harry Potter one – Luna’s one of my favorite characters! If you’re in the market for a new case, whether new phone or not, check this site out!


Find Out If You’ve Been Hacked

There have been quite a few hacks into big sites like LinkedIn, Dropbox, and Adobe. While the companies do reach out to users if a breech is detected, it’s also good for us as consumers to keep an eye on our accounts and data. This site is a great resource to check to see if any of your data has been hacked, by simply entering your email address. You can also sign up to receive alerts if any future hacks compromise your data!


Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts

What happens when two late night TV hosts do a segment on a show together? Lots of laughs! Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden sit down with some pretty gross “eats” in front of them and take turns asking each other questions in this clip. If they opt out of answering the question they have to eat something on the plate in front of them. Yikes! So, so funny though!

    Love Kimmel and Corden! I’m gonna check out those phone cases!

    I love society 6!!! I get all my phone cases from them :)

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:38 PM

      They have the best designs!

    Happy Friday!! Hope your midterm went well! Love that case!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:38 PM

      Thanks, Jackie! I feel pretty good about it. Hoping the results come back just as good :)

    I LOVE that Case! Actually I just love society 6… even though the shipping costs to send stuff to Canada basically bankrupt me every time I order something…

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:39 PM

      Thanks, Laura! I’m hoping it gets here soon.. it seems like it’s taking a lifetime! Bummer about shipping costs to Canada :( Hopefully they’ll open an office up there soon!

    I love society 6! I used to go on there all of the time. That case looks adorable & I’m such an HP fan, so this would be perfect for me!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:40 PM

      Me too! I have to be careful not to go on the site too much – otherwise I’ll end up buying all the things :)

    I was giggling out loud when I watched that video. Too funny!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:40 PM

      Isn’t it?! They should do more segments together!

  8. September 16, 2016 / 5:06 PM

    I have never heard of society 6 before. I love that case though! This week has been crazy for me as well. Hope your midterm went well!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:41 PM

      Thanks, Mistle! I’m feeling pretty good about it! Society 6 has some great cases – you’ll have to keep them in mind the next time you’re looking for one!

    LOVE that phone case! I feel like Luna is such an underrated character and she has some amazing lines!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:42 PM

      Isn’t it the cutest?! She’s one of my favorites – love her quirky lines!

  10. September 16, 2016 / 5:22 PM

    I love Society 6, great iphone case choice!! That Youtube Video is awesome!!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:50 PM

      Thanks, Angela! I can’t wait for it to arrive!

    I haven’t been to Society 6 before. Looks like they have some cool stuff – I can get lost in there! Cute phone case!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:50 PM

      They have the best designs! It’s definitely easy to get lost in there.. along with all of your money, haha.

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:51 PM

      Same! No I haven’t seen that video but I’m off to check it out now :)

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:52 PM

      Thanks, Renee! HP > all!

    Love that site that tells you whether or not you’ve been hacked! Cyber security is so important!

      It really is! Most companies/sites are good about letting you know, but better to be proactive yourself about it!

  13. September 16, 2016 / 10:24 PM

    That Luna case is wonderful! She’s one of my faves too. I always forget about Society 6 for phone cases. I’ve looked at it for other cute things but have never checked out phone cases.

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:58 PM

      Isn’t it?! Mophies are my go-to but since those always take a while to come out, I’m always excited to get a fun designed case!

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:55 PM

      It’s so scary! Hopefully all of your info is safe!

  14. September 17, 2016 / 8:38 AM

    I had no idea about that hacking check! Also I adore that phone case :) I really need a new phone haha. Always an excuse to buy a cute new case too :)

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:54 PM

      Check it out – hopefully all of your info is safe! And I love new phones and cases! Sounds like it’s time for you to pick some out too :)

  15. September 18, 2016 / 10:21 PM

    The hacking check website seems interesting. I will totally have to check it out.

    xoxo, Jenny

    • September 18, 2016 / 10:54 PM

      Definitely! Being hacked is the worst – this is a great tool to be proactive if it happens!

    Where in Europe are you going? I’m planning a mom-daughter trip to France for my birthday next year!


    • September 19, 2016 / 10:43 PM

      That sounds amazing! This year we’ll be going to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and the Netherlands. I can’t wait!

    I LOVE that iPhone case! I need to find that!

    • September 19, 2016 / 10:43 PM

      Thanks, Mary! You can pick it up from Society 6. I’m anxiously awaiting mine’s arrival!

  18. September 20, 2016 / 4:32 PM

    oh my gosh, i love james corden so i need to watch that tonight. i love the phone case and basically everything on society 6 lol – i am super clumsy though so if my phone didn’t have an otterbox on it, it would have died a million deaths already.

    • September 21, 2016 / 9:27 PM

      He’s my fave! I can definitely see where using an Otterbox would come in handy :) I wish they + Mophie (charging case) would team up with Society 6 for fun designs!
