Yes, I Have 2 PopSockets And Yes, It's A Way Of Life

Pop, sock, and drop it

I have been a follower of the PopSocket trend for almost two years. I have to say, and I'm not just being dramatic, it has changed my life. However, I've only had one until Christmas, and let me say, two is better than one.

I know what you're thinking, "Why in the world do you need two PopSockets?"

Well, here's the story:

I have always had a PopSocket on my phone. Since I first got one, I haven't been without one for longer than a week because I didn't like the feeling of not having one. My friends and family know how obsessed I am with them. Because of this, both my mom and best friend got me a new one for Christmas. Rather than picking just one to use, I thought, "Why not use both?" My plan was to use the both of them for a week or so and then take one of them off, but after a week had passed, I realized the many, many benefits of having 2 PopSockets.

Why is two better than one?

Having two PopSockets gives you a better stability when it comes to taking a selfie, making a phone call, or even just holding it. If you're anything like myself, you're probably known for being clumsy and dropping your phone basically anywhere you go and any chance you get.

Having one PopSocket already gives you a better chance of not dropping your phone in a rain puddle, but imagine how much greater the chance of not dropping your phone would be if you had two PopSockets?

With TWO PopSockets, the ability to prop my phone up has been expanded. With one PopSocket, my options are limited. I can either prop my phone up and down, or on its side. However, with two, I am able to do both. One is great for FaceTime and checking texts, emails, and social media. The other is great for YouTube videos, Netflix, and phone calls. Why settle for one when you can have two?

While doing some research for this article, I found out that PopSockets donate 10% of their online net proceeds and 10,000 PopSockets to support the people fighting Parkinson's Disease, as apart of their Do Good initiative.

As if I didn't love PopSockets enough, their support of Parkinson's Disease makes me proud to use my 2 PopSockets with confidence.

From The Recovering Shopaholic Tired Of Consumerism

I think I maybe have what, like eight dollars left in my account.


Let's face it, friends: my bank account has taken a beating. Hard. Real hard. Being a sorority girl has completely drained my debit card, from swaps to date parties to feeling pressured to never wear the same outfit twice on my Instagram. I think I maybe have what, like $8 left in my account.

Last week it was makeup. This week it's athleisure skirts, because God knows I'm not gonna hit the gym with this bronze-y glow I bought in a bottle. I spent all summer working my first job that didn't pay me under the table only to spend my entire paycheck at the same place. The whole concept of "treat yo self" isn't lost on me. I have a slight problem, and it's only made worse by the fact that all my favorite stores have apps that are conveniently downloaded onto my phone, so then everything I could ever want is just one click away.


As someone whose favorite holiday is Black Friday, you may be wondering why I am so tired of consumerism, besides my obvious bankruptcy situation. The fact of the matter is, I'm tired of constantly being berated by advertisements telling me I need all these new products. It seems like more than ever before, social media is becoming more and more just a string of advertisements, one after another. It's not just brands advertising anymore; it's influencers and friends and even those weird stranger girls that DM you on Instagram saying, "Hey gorgeous! You look poor and desperate! Would you like to make a small amount of money each month selling so-called "miracle" products you have to pay to even try out?"

And God, these products aren't even GOOD. Brands are so uncreative these days, they're not just copying each other (hello, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Maybelline); they're copying THEMSELVES. Tarte Cosmetics is literally releasing a holiday palette that is a copy of a palette they had in the summer. Too Faced Cosmetics thinks they can slap a happy face on a piece of fruit and all of a sudden it's "creative packaging."

I'm sorry, but the Annoying Orange already thought of that, what, like ten years ago? Don't even get me started on the unicorns and mermaids trend. As someone who is basically still a toddler, I absolutely love a good unicorn product. I have a unicorn lamp in my room. But I'm so tired of brands taking trends and running with them so much and for so long that the novelty wears off. Like if one brand does mermaids, maybe someone else should do fairies? Or trolls or gnomes or hobbits or something (I mean, who doesn't want to look like they guard a bridge?) People NEED to do their OWN thing. We love an original sister.

And then we have these influencers shoving these boring products down our throats like they're the next best thing since sliced bread. Like can they make it any more obvious that they have zero taste when they're trying to sell us ANOTHER red-toned eyeshadow palette? Been there, done that. Stop acting like it's new and cool because it's neither. It just makes it look like you're desperate for money. It may be your job, but you don't have to act like Schmeagle or whoever that character is from Lord of the Rings who freaks every time he finds money.

All in all, people need to stop pandering goods to us until they can actually think of a good reason why I should add another eyeshadow palette to my collection of forty. All my makeup is going to expire before I even have time to open half of these palettes, so I think it's time we all stop.
