If you know me, you know I'm big on customer service. I'm also a huge fan of quality products in cute packaging, and if your company goes the extra mile in any way, I'll be yours for life.

I don't really enjoy Facebook ads, especially ones that pop up nonstop, but I'll admit, sometimes they work. After seeing this ad about ten times in a three month period, I caved and decided to buy a shirt... and see if I could get a discount. I'm cheap, I admit it. 

 Bony middle finger, the word 'shit', and an awesome life motto on a tank is too good to pass up.

The website is really well-designed, and you know I'm a sucker for a good format! When I found the tank, I was pleased to discover that shipping was free (every penny counts, you guys) AND First Class USPS, and while I'm not big on dropping $32 on a shirt, I was willing to bite the bullet on this one. Here's why:

 Lest you think they're just grabbing the 'few good reviews', I checked out their Facebook page review section... they're all glowing. This is legit.

I went ahead and ordered a large (my boobs are massive. Even at my skinniest, I can't fit into a small or even a medium, because my rack will stretch out the shirt, distort any lettering, and basically just look trashy) in black, used the Paypal option and was done in less than a minute.

[Real quick, it needs to be said: If your site has Paypal available for a payment option, I am 1,000x more likely to buy whatever you're selling. Running to my purse, digging out my wallet, pulling out my card, sitting back down, typing all the info out, and then returning it is a PAIN IN THE ASS, and if I can just click, login, and hit 'Accept', I'm happy!]

I'm not gonna lie, I have a terrible memory when it comes to online purchases, and I totally forgot that I bought this until it came in the mail today. When I saw the little square box with HU printed on the side, I immediately knew what it was, and I opened it as fast as I could!  [Another side note: their homepage has a link to their blog, which gives you all the info you could want on their mottos, practices, philosophy, etc., and the link says, "Our shirts go in boxes. Our thinking doesn't." HOW COOL IS THAT?!]

Inside was a little drawstring bag with the HU logo. I'm planning on using it to keep stuff organized in my purse. It'll probably hold my backup jewelry (the stuff I throw on when I have to rush out the door and forget to accessorize), and it's the perfect size! Inside was the tank, which I immediately put on, and let me tell you, I LOVE THE FABRIC AND THE FIT. So much so, that I ended up spilling my guts on Facebook about it! When I find a good product, I can't help myself from telling my friends. It's just good karma, ya know? Anyway... as I was going to toss the cardboard box in the recycling bin, I noted a little card inside. At first glance, I thought it was an invoice slip, and I didn't wanna bother with it. Upon closer inspection, I found out that it was a handwritten thank you note! THIS IS THE EXTRA MILE THAT I LIVE FOR. 

 Tank, thank you card (front and back), and a giant smile that couldn't quite fit in the frame!

In case you can't read it, the note says, "Hi Bee Butler Music! Stay ornery as hell in Cali in this tank! Thanks so much for your order :) xoxo - HU <3".

Guys, I giggled. Ornery is practically my middle name, and I have to admit, handwritten notes and "ornery as hell" from a company makes me smile. So many companies are too buttoned-up and "polite". I'm digging the refreshing, honest, jokey way this thing was written. It sounds like something I'd say, and I appreciated it.

 

If you, too, are big on awesome clothing and great service, head on over to the Human Unlimited shopping site and grab yourself a tank, tee, or hoodie! I'm partial to the "Do No Harm, but Take No Shit" shirt, but they've got other prints and sayings, too! I think my next purchase is gonna be the "Transcend the Bullshit" shirt

 

 

Guys, although I wish I was, I'm not being compensated AT ALL for my views on this product. I'm telling you about it because I really love it, and I want you to spend your money on things that are worth it, both quality and care-wise. While it would be neat to partner with Human Unlimited in the future (are you guys reading this, HINT HINT?), I'll continue to buy from them and possibly even review more of their merchandise, because I care about my readers, and when I find something this good, I gotta brag on it.

 

Happy shopping!
(And Katelyn? This is part of your little gift. Thanks again for letting me partner with you to launch your site! READERS: This tank would look great with some statement pieces from the Pretty x Twisted collection!)

 

Till next time,
