Coty’s Thoughts:

Shooting Target by Supermandolini. Pros: Supermandolini sent me three matching Shooting Target pieces from the boutique: a graphic shirt, pendant, and poster print. First, all of the items work well together and are very cohesive. The tee is perfect for any guy and the pendant will look good on any girl. The shirt is printed on an American Apparel blank so the fit is great and the shirt is comfortably soft. The three color print on the tee extends to the bottom hem, a difficult technique to pull off . The design is very detail oriented – you’ll have people walking up to you just to read the text. Excellent packaging. The Shooting Target poster is hand numbered and limited to 100 pieces. Cons: I love the brand and the Shooting Target themed items, but they might just be a little too pricey for some. Price: €30 ($42 US)

Shooting Target

I Believe In The Loch Ness Monster by EIO Clothing. Pros: The first thing  you’ll notice when you touch and put on a tee from EIO Clothing is how soft it is. EIO Clothing has some of the most amazingly soft tees that I’ve ever reviewed, they just feel so great. Shirt is made from 100% esmeril cotton that is produced in Portugal and handprinted in the UK. Great type shirt, especially since I am infatuated by the Loch Ness Monster. If you know someone who enjoys myths and legends then they would probably appreciate this tee. Shirt features a custom embroidered tag on the lower left hem and a screen printed neck label. Cons: Neckline is a bit thin compared to traditionally cut shirts. Some of you might not like the raw edged sleeves. Pricey. Price: £24.95 ($39 US).

The shirt itself is made from premium quality ultra soft esmeril cotton and features raw edged sleeves.

My natural glow has been known to make some people blush.

Yes, people have told me that I have a natural glow. But since this is the Internet, you’ll have to take my word.  

My lack of creativity is due to an unmotivated right brain.

Whenever I’m having a day thats lacking creativity I just blame the right hemisphere of my brain. The purveyor of all thing awesome. Stay active, stay strong!

I specialize in the psychology of awesomeness.

The next two “psychology” themed slogans are a result of me working on a two papers on the subject. Universities should seriously offer a course in the Psychology of Awesomeness. What makes awesome people, awesome? Are there brain regions associated with extreme awesomeness? And, of course, what are the fundamental behavioral characteristics of awesomeness? 

Be forewarned: I suffer from selective attention.

I seriously do. If it’s something that I wish to just have fly through one ear and out the other then that’s exactly what will happen. Selective attention, it’s not a choice, it’s an innate characteristic that I possess. 

I believe in Bigfoot, Nessie and world peace.

This is one of the statement slogans. I wish Bigfoot existed so that I could give him a cookie. I wish Nessie existed so that I could snap a pic of her/him and I wish that world peace existed so that we could all live happy and be happy. But of course, we know that Bigfoot doesn’t exist, Nessie was a hoax and world peace, well, until we get rid of religion (among other things) we can forget about that. 

The dog didn’t eat my homework. I just didn’t do it.

It seems that every week I have at least one slogan that highlights my laziness. In truth, I’m not a lazy person – I just wish I could lounge around all day. By the way, I firmly believe in doing homework – it builds character!

Double dipping is negligible contamination.

Double dipping has never really been a big problem for me (unless you have a noticeable cold sore). I’m not sure why people get into such hizzy about it. It’s not a big deal! Or is it?
