Girls Just Want to Get Gifts!


Sometimes shopping for girls can be hard. I know because I am a girl and have two sisters, who are almost impossible to shop for. When you shop for women you have to shop from the heart. Not only do you

There's nothing worse then the humid summer heat! You know... those days when its over 100 degrees, no breeze, and the air just hangs there. Yeah not cool! The only thing that helps on a sticky hot day


Dad Tells Tale of 5.11



My dad Bill was über excited when he found out I started working at BareBones. Coming from a guy who does not get excited by much, I was intrigued.


He was downright giddy when he bounded upstairs and came back down with several garments. I was about to be schooled in 5.11 tactical gear.



With boyish enthusiasm he showed me the plethora of hidden document and tool pockets on his 5.11 wares, adding that they put these pockets in “darn near everything they make – backpacks and totes too!”


He also boasted of the 5.11 double-reinforced fabric on the knees of the pants and on the elbows on the shirts. He said between the insane quality of 5.11’s gear and BareBones’ prices, he saves an awful lot of money.

At BareBones, I had the pleasure of learning more about the quality of 5.11 and the range of their offerings. 5.11 has truly designed THE clothes and tools for anyone requiring incredibly durable and outright “working-practical” gear.


In fact, 5.11 consulted with EMTs, police officers and enlisted men & women in deciding how to design their gear. Need to decide where the pen holders go on an ambulance top? They asked them! How best to design medical and tactical bags for optimal versatility? They asked EMTs, officers, and soldiers!

The answer? FUN SCRUBSFun scrubs? What does that even mean? Well, according to a couple different studies, what you wear to work can affect not only who you work with (for you healthcare workers, that means your fellow staff and patients), but also yourself.

Let me explain by taking you on a visual tour of a wholeee newww woooorrrlllddd of my top 20 picks for super Fun Scrubs.



1. Tooniforms 6748C Women’s V-Neck Scrub Top

5. Scrub HQ 4804 Women’s Mock Wrap Scrub Top

While you’re at work or don’t have access to hours upon hours of cute cat videos on youtube (or if you’re ironically allergic like me–I say ironically because my name is Cat), here’s a scrub that will show ‘em meow it’s done.

6. Dickies 84771 Women’s Every Day Scrubs V-Neck Scrub Top


I’m not really sure what it is about owls and owl prints, but they seem to be a real hoot with the healthcare industry professionals!




7. Dickies 84771C Women’s Missy Fit EDS Print V-Neck Scrub Top

9. Scrub HQ 4620C Unisex Kid’s Scrub Set


Okay, admittedly, these are for kids, but that just means there’s super cute fun scrubs for the whole family (well, maybe not so much the guys, but… hopefully that will change in the future).




10. Tooniforms 6885V Women’s Mock Wrap Scrub Top


Don’t be a square! Or be a square. Whatever you want, the choice is yours.

It may not be the best time to wear a striped sweater (even though we all know that’s all the time), but it sure is a good time to wear a Spongebob scrubs. *cue Spongebob laughter*

14. Tooniforms 6767CB Women’s Cotton Scoop Neck Scrub Top


I recently re-watched Disney’s Bambi and it was like the saddest thing ever (well, not quite as sad as Dumbo. That got too real), BUT the good part is that everyone only really remembers the fancy-free prancing of this growing deer and his animal friends. That’s sort of ideal experience though, isn’t it? Get through all the tough times, but come out remembering the best of those times. Spread that positive experience to your staff and patients with this Bambi scrub top.





15. Tooniforms 6754B Women’s V-Neck Scrub Top



The greatest lesson that can be learned from Disney’s The Little Mermaid is that you can become anything you want to be. With magic.

18. Tooniforms 6546 Women’s V-Neck Scrub Top


I never watched a whole bunch of Hello Kitty as a child, but I saw a few episodes and they were… bizarrely calm? Well… anyway, Hello Kitty is a giant hit with people all over the world. She has become an icon for fashion, cute culture, individuality, and maybe stereotypes of Asian submissiveness (but there have been lots of rad movements to reverse this trend). So get that kawaii out of your eyes and start spreading the joy with these Hello Kitty scrubs.
