BlogHer Haul

2 Posted by - July 31, 2013 - Videos

So this past week I was at a big blogger conference called BlogHer! It’s one of the biggest blogging conferences out there, and absolutely famous for the bags and bags of swag you get sent home with. So, duh, it’s the perfect opportunity for a haul video, right? Be gentle. It’s my very first haul video and I don’t know if I did it right. (If you can’t see the video, click here.)

Alsooooo July 30 thru August 6th you can get $10 off $50+ in my store. (Hey big spender.) Code is TENOFF. So if you need $50 worth of Pintester stuff… um… you’re golden.

    Hooray! Sorry our weather was shit! Lube it up!

    • Pintester July 31, 2013 - 4:25 pm Reply

      On the contrary– I thought the weather was lovely! I mean it drizzled a little but mostly it was very pleasant for summertime conferencing. Not too hot, not too humid… Not that we got to go outside much. We mostly sat inside in sub-zero conference room air conditioning.

        That’s good, then! I like my summers like I like my men: hot, sticky, and not too bright.

    It was nice to meet you while stalking Ree Drummond at breakfast!

    Nice to see the Bowie/camping knife again. You should try and work it into each video or post in some way. Or hide it somewhere in the video and offer a prize to the first “commentor” with the right answer and a funny story to go along with its location. Ex. lets say you are doing a hair tut. in the bathroom and the Bowie/camping knife is on the back of the toilet and I see it and say it is there for a snake in the toilet emergency. Or some such like that. JUst a thought.

    no you did it right. I’ve seen a lot of people make it rain business cards in their haul videos, lol! I loved it!

  • Kate S. July 31, 2013 - 7:48 pm Reply

    Is that a Bear Grylls knife??? Awesome!

    • rfoust July 31, 2013 - 8:52 pm Reply

      Yes, it is! I have two, the ultimate knife and also the paracord knife. :) They rock.

      • Kate S. July 31, 2013 - 9:22 pm Reply

        Oooohhhh, I want the paracord knife. (My brother is trying to collect them all. haha)

        • rfoust July 31, 2013 - 9:39 pm Reply

          I love the paracord knife, it’s a great all-around knife and isn’t huge like the ultimate. I kinda want to collect more too, lol. I have no idea why, they’re just cool.

          • Kate S. July 31, 2013 - 9:43 pm

            I think this is a worthy endeavor.

    I discovered you a while ago and didn’t want to listen to any of your videos because no one ever sounds like they look and I’m always startled by the difference. (Except my husband who looks like he has a very deep voice and actually does have that “radio” voice. Weird.) I have no idea if you did this “right” but it looks good to me and you sound? Just like you look. I was not disappointed (disgusted or have a sudden urge to get those fingernails off the damn chalkboard (that’s the worst)). I love what you do. I do this, too, but with food. I don’t blog about it because I’m not organized enough. You rock.

    I have a Dane/Lab/Not very smart mutt, who’s name happens to be Mr. Darcy. He went total spaz trying to figure out who was saying his name. Best thing I’ve seen all week? Yes.

    You are hilarious. By far the best haul video ever

  • Von August 1, 2013 - 3:48 am Reply

    The pink highlights in your hair faded quickly, didn’t they? I just happened to notice that.
    All that lube but no appliance to go with it?

  • Melinda Horn August 1, 2013 - 9:38 am Reply

    you gotta try out the eyelashes, that would be epic to see you try to put them on while making a video

  • rebeccajo August 1, 2013 - 10:42 am Reply

    PLEASE – do the eyelashes!!!
    PLEASE – never again on the ‘making it rain” :)

  • Becky Morris August 1, 2013 - 12:11 pm Reply

    I would pay to see you put on fake lashes. This is only because I fail so horribly at it.

  • ChickieD August 1, 2013 - 12:56 pm Reply

    I enjoy your videos and I like your husband, too. However, please, I do not want to see the video of you enjoying your lube haul. I know people make a lot of money doing that stuff on the interwebs, but I enjoy your blog with the cookie/candle/food penises only. Thank you. Also, nice haul video. You are my first so I guess you did it right.

  • Allie August 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm Reply

    Ok, so we don’t want to see you test the lube. But I wouldn’t mind at least a review of them. Like, which do you like better? Which was shit? Did any of them make your hoo-ha uncomfortable? Seriously, I had a bad reaction to one once. Bad times were had by all that night.

  • Sylvia August 3, 2013 - 12:06 am Reply

    I want to do a business card rain. So badly.

    Last year I came home with 3 (THREE!) vibrators from BlogHer. Just sayin.

  • Kasey@DebtPerception August 3, 2013 - 8:06 pm Reply

    I <3 your I <3 Mr. Darcy t-shirt!

  • alianora August 3, 2013 - 10:51 pm Reply

    Oh, if I had known you were going to be there, I would have tried to meet you! I also got lube, but I won at the Wheel of Vibrators and came home with that to go with the lube!

    You are absolutely hilarious and one of my all time favorite bloggers. Enjoy your swag.

    In con volunteer circles we call that sore throat the con-plague. It also comes in runny nose and hacking cough. Glad you liked Chicago!

  • Cherie-Lynn Buchanan August 6, 2013 - 8:09 pm Reply

    i loved this video! with the talk/debate and love/hate relationship that surrounds swag I thought this was perfect. Well Done.

  • Miranda Englesby August 8, 2013 - 1:50 am Reply

    I LOVE you!
    My favourite part was with the business cards.
