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!

  • Michelle Lynn

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

  • Ivanna

    Thanks for the video; I needed that. You had a great variety of ‘fun finds’!

  • Taylor Smith

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

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

    • 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…

    • 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!

  • Rachel Golden

    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!

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

  • Chrissa – Physical Kitchness

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

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

  • 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!

    • 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!

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

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

  • renee

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

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

  • Love anything HP related lol! Have you seen the video with Jimmy Kimmel and Scott Eastwood with Ellen doing ‘Would You Rather’? Hilarious!

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

  • Love the iphone case! HP ftw! :D

  • 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!

  • 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.

    • 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!

  • Thanks for sharing about the hacking check!! I worry about that!

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

  • 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 :)

    • 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 :)

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

    xoxo, Jenny

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

  • Lena Petrova

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


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

  • Mary Welby

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

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

  • 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.

    • 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!
