What's Your Itsa? Tee Shirt Review

I had a really nice tee shirt sent to me last year right around the holidays and unfortunately, like alot of other sponsors, this one got lost in the shuffle. I had so many emails coming daily wanting to be in my Christmas Giveaway Events that I had to keep joining more to just keep up with them. So, between the Halloween Events, Thanksgiving Events and then the Christmas ones, I worked myself into a relapse of my Fibromyalgia and RA and have been very sick.

I did spend a few days in the hospital and do see my pain clinic doctor weekly now until we can get this all under control again. I am very sorry for the ones I had to let sit because the events were so big, sometimes 15 to 20 sponsors and I was so exhausted I just wanted to get Christmas over with and I know that sounds bad, but I was completely undone by Christmas Eve that my doctor ordered me to bed rest for a week or two. I did get a few out and now I am attempting to catch as many of you up as I can.

Now, back to my shirt. You can go on their website and pick out what kind of Itsa are you? There are so many to choose from or you can make your own if you want. I wasn't really sure who I was anymore since I had to quit working an then my doctors deemed me disabled and so I don't work anymore and I did find this (blogging), but I fear that that too now may have to stop.

So, I puzzled over what to pick and then I decided on the one passion I had before my job was taken away and we had to fight for 3 years to get my disability started, so everything was taken from me and what I missed more than anything was travelling. We used to take at least one trip out west every year and a few times managed two trips. We loved visiting the National and State Parks every year.

I finally went to Walt Disney with my granddaughter and was very surprised to find out I loved it, especially the Magic Kingdom, which was odd, because you would think it was all geared up for little kids but we had some of the best laughs there in those silly rides acting like kids! So, in remembrance of those days, I got a Travelista shirt! Go check out what the real color looks like!

My camera is so bad that it did not even pick up the right color of my shirt. It is really a hot pink, not this soft pink. I wish I could afford a nicer camera, but I am entering tons of giveaways to try and win one, so let's keep our fingers crossed, then my pictures will come out looking right!

I really do love my shirt and I actually ordered it bigger than what I really wear because alot of times in the middle of reading, watching TV and yes, unfortunately while typing reviews, I will nod off so hubby just takes my hands off the keyboard and shuts it down and leaves me alone.

So, I wear the shirts because they are so comfortable with my leggings or gym pants so that is why I ordered them extra big. When I go into stores they keep trying to bring me these little shirts and I say no and they are like, but you are too little to wear those big ones! Lord, if you could only hear half of the conversations. But in the end, I win because the customer is always right, right?

I wish I could show you some of their fantastic shirts but I guess they have the images protected so people can't copy them I guess, so it wouldn't let me bring any over so that you could see some more of the really interesting ones. So, please, just take my word for it, they are truly awesome and you  need to check them out! They even have a Bargainista shirt where they have too many of them and they are reduced. If you like the two that they have on sale now, it's actually a pretty good deal!

Oh, another way I thought you could see the shirts in action is by watching some of the people who sent in video's wearing their Ista shirts. Go check out their videos and get ready to be amazed at how great everyone looks in their special Itsa shirt!

I found this in the About Us section:
Marlee is a school guidance counselor and a designer, who wants to save the world and make it more beautiful at the same time (peaceista). Amy is a special education teacher, who is a self-described word nerd (wordista or nerdista?) who loves the idea of creating new words with a clever sounding suffix.  
Between us, we have 5 children to put through college, I mean, who we are raising. Marlee and Amy have been friends since they met in the "transfer student" line at Clemson University in 1986.  
Our kids are tennisista, zombieista, spikeista, artista, and pizza-ista (which is just fun to say—try it). How It All Started Dig if you will this picture, over a glass or 2 of the house merlot, we lamented the current state of the economy and our husbands' job prospects.  
Someone said something like “Forget fashionista, I’m a recessionista.” Next thing you know, we are all throwing out other ista ideas. We got to thinking that it would be fun to create Ista T-shirts. Part of our mission is to be generous with others. 
We know that many organizations have been suffering from a lack of donations.  We know that passionate people like our customers will have their own pet charities. We want our customers to suggest charities and we will donate a portion of our profits. 
Oh, and by the way, this would make an awesome Valentine's Day, Birthday, Easter, Mother's Day or even Father's Day gift. Yes, they do have shirts for men. They call them Unisex shirts so men can wear them and they have youth sizes also!

Well, that is a cute idea! Very clever of them to let you pick your ista! So sorry to hear about your health issues! I would be so bummed if you stopped blogging, you are my favorite!

These are so cute! I think a set of these would make for a fun family picture with everyone's personalized 'ista'.

This is a clever new idea for tee-shirts. The ones that they are wearing are attractive but I can't see the logos
