The Olympic Games are by far my favorite event every four years!! I watch more TV and sports coverage online in those two weeks than I do during the four years in between the games.
I have LOVED all of the pre-games commercials, but my favorites have to be “Salute” and “That’s My Girl” from NBC Sports!
Such powerful women and amazing role models for girls of all ages!!
USA Gymnastics is so strong it could send three full teams and sweep the medal podium – and the reason why, is the incredible semi-centralized training system that has been created over the past 16 (give or take) years.
So, are you RIO READY? I say let the games begin!!!
We are watching preseason NHL hockey tonight and I just saw my new favorite commercial!! Technically this is part of the NHL’s Hockey is for Everyone public service campaign, but the focus is on girls and dispelling the notion that hockey is a boy’s sport. “Whoever says girls can’t play hockey hasn’t seen me” is the best line!
I love that they show that girls can be girls – purple nail polish and all – and still like to put on their skates, shoulder pads and helmets and skate FAST. I love that it talks about making friends through hockey. I love that it shows little girls doing hockey drills side by side with older girls.
Well done NHL!! This commercial is a great way to show girls that hockey is a fun, challenging and rewarding sport that everyone can play.
Junior Drake, known for its designer genuine leather handbags at affordable pricing and for its inspirational message “It’s not the Bag, it’s the Girl!” kicked off 2011 by launching the “Herbie” men’s line including a signature “Herbie” duffel bag.
They sent me a Herbie duffel bag and wallet to review and let me just say WOW! Now, I know this is supposed to be a “men’s” duffel bag, but I am going to put a red ribbon on the handle and claim it as my own. The leather is thick but amazingly soft and I love the brushed silver hardware. It has a zippered top closure, double handle and an adjustable shoulder strap. The duffel is available in brown genuine leather with brown silk lining or black genuine leather and a cool green silk lining.
As you can see from the photo, the Herbie duffel is plenty big enough to hold all the gear a gal (or guy) would need for a day at the golf course or a quick weekend trip. The silk lining is a very nice touch and there is a roomy interior zippered pocket and two open top pockets perfect for stashing your phone or wallet.
Speaking of wallets, Junior Drake also sent me the “Herbie” wallet that goes with the duffel bag. My husband loves it. Again, the first thing I noticed was the quality of the leather – it is just so soft! My husband likes the configuration of the slots for credit cards and ID and the divided pocket for cash (he uses one section for cash and the other section for receipts). Keep the “Herbie” line in mind come time for Dad’s birthday or Father’s Day. The Herbie line is definitely style meeting function – and doing it well!
Junior Drake will be adding an exclusive line of “Herbie” golf accessories which will include “Herbie” logo hats and golf towels, too. Now if we can just convince them to release a ladies golf line! I’m sure it would be beautiful – based on what I have seen of their handbags.
Junior Drake Handbags has teamed up with the Golf Channel reality show “Pipe Dream” with an exclusive offer for both handbag lovers and golf fans!

**Disclosure: I did receive both the Herbie Duffel and the wallet to review, however, all opinions of the product are my own.
