Amazon Is Crowdfunding a Designer Echo Dot — Here’s How to Get Your Hands on One



Scroll To See More Images

Amazon’s best-selling Echo Dot device has been around for years now, but it looks like the device is getting a designer glow-up. Indeed, Amazon is crowdfunding a limited edition echo dot designed by the iconic Diane Von Fetsstenberg (aka DVF). Basically, if Amazon receives enough preorders for the stylish gadget (it’s just $60 a pop) ahead of the goal’s end time, it’ll be shipped out in December of this year. On the contrary, if there aren’t enough preorders, well, there will be no DVF Echo Dot.

The limited-edition and “best-dressed” Echo Dot project is being held as a part of the massive e-tailer’s Build It program, which aims to launch new product drops based on consumer interest. Unlike other crowdfunding programs, however, Amazon won’t actually bill your card until the item ships out, so if the DVF x Echo Dot target isn’t hit, you won’t be charged for it. It’s totally a no-risk buy.

Amazon Echo Dot Diane Von Furstenberg Limited Edition in ‘Twigs’

I am ~so~ here for elevated lil’ echo.

Last week, Amazon unveiled the DVF Echo Dot, with three different “styles” imbued with pinkish, sorbet-inspired hues (there’s also a black and white version) and abstract prints. According to Amazon, it’s “the best-dressed Echo yet,” and I’m not going to lie, I totally concur. Frankly, I really hope Amazon hits its goal because I definitely want this chic designer device in my home ASAP.

Amazon Echo Dot Diane Von Furstenberg Limited Edition in ‘Midnight Kiss’

Wow — this literally couldn’t be any cuter even if it tried (!!!).

To date, it looks like preorders are only about 10 percent to goal, which means there’s a long way to go in these next 30 days. Oh, and BTW, if you do preorder between now and August 13, you’ll be saving $10. If the DVF Echo Dot does become available later, it’ll be $70. Basically, if you’re like me and 100 percent do think Amazon should make these stylish lil’ gadgets, preorder one for yourself now.

John Travolta Shares Bittersweet News About Late Wife Kelly Preston’s Final Screen Role

As Travolta wrote in the caption, Preston was “very proud of it and of all of the wonderful talent that she got to work with in it.”

“A dying wish from their best friend, Anna (Andrea Corr), compels Cassie (Kelly Preston), Kate (Jenny Seagrove) and Liz (Sally Phillips) to put old feuds aside and take her 17-year-old daughter on an inter-railing journey across Europe that they did not quite finish during their studies,” the film’s synopsis explains.

“Now in their 50s, they are older but not necessarily wiser. With some bad luck, train strikes, and romantic entanglements thrown in their way, the trip promises as many laughs and tears and self-discovery as the first time around. The question is: will they reach their destination in time to honour their friend’s memory?”

Thomas Markle threatens to take daughter Meghan to court



The Duchess of Sussex’s father has threatened to take her to court to see his grandchildren.

Duchess of Sussex

Thomas Markle hasn’t seen his daughter Meghan since before her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018 and he’s ready to take drastic action “in the very near future” in order to meet their kids Archie, two, and Lili, seven weeks.

He told Fox News: “We shouldn’t be punishing [Lili] for Meghan and Harry’s bad behaviour.

“Archie and Lili are small children. They’re not politics. They’re not pawns. They’re not part of the game. And they’re also royal and entitled to the same rights as any other royal…

“I will be petitioning the California courts for the rights to see my grandchildren in the very near future.”

The retired lighting director also mocked Harry’s recent announcement that he’ll release his memoir next year,insisting that “after three sessions with the psychiatrists and Oprah Winfrey”, the prince wouldn’t “have too much more to tell.”

Thomas previously revealed he only discovered he had become a grandfather again when he heard the news “on the radio”.

He said: “I haven’t spoken to her [Meghan] since two days before they got married … no phone calls, I just heard it on the radio…

“I’ll be very disappointed that I don’t get to hold my granddaughter.”

Thomas is still bemused as to why Meghan, 39, decided to cut off all contact with him.

Although the proud father accepts he made an error of judgment when he staged paparazzi photos of himself getting a suit and shopping before the nuptials in May 2018, he insists he has done nothing so bad that Meghan should choose to be completely estranged from him.

He said: “I’ve made mistakes. I apologised a hundred times for it … If I had done something terribly wrong, that would be fine, but I haven’t.”

Polk County Sheriff arrests 29 drug dealers, rocks their gold chains: ‘We got your gold’




The Polk County Sheriff is going viral after he donned gold chains owned by drug dealers who are now in the county jail.

Sheriff Grady Judd held a press conference this week to announce the arrests of 32 people connected to a drug trafficking operation.

Authorities seized narcotics with a street value of $283,000, $88,000 in cash, and $89,000 worth of jewelry in the sting operation that spanned 16 months.

Judd said law enforcement arrested 29 drug traffickers and issued arrest warrants for three others who are still at large.

“You can go ahead and turn yourself in or you can go to jail tired from running, but you’re gonna go to jail,” Sheriff Judd said, referring to the three fugitives.

Judd picked up several gold chains and wore them around is neck while taunting the jailed drug dealers.

“That’s right, they thought they were cool. How cool are you today?” He said, while holding mugshots of two of the dealers.

“Can y’all make up a rap song about this? Well, I’ll help you out. You see, we got your gold. We put your tail in the county jail. Think about that, brothas.”
