If you guys have been around my blog for a little while, you know I really like lists and themes. Mostly themed parties, but also themed gifts. That’s why I really dig Man Crates, an online shop who delivers awesome gifts for men. Ladies of the world: your dudes will love this stuff. Check it out.
When the Man Crates team asked me to come up with my survival kit, I had a harder time coming up with things than I thought. I love a lot of things and get easily excited over stuff like purple cauliflower, but what are my must haves? After careful thought and consideration, here are my favorite favorites.
Some of my favorite podcasters (Alie & Georgia) say they know it’s been a crazy week when there are only spoons in the sink. I think could live on spoonfuls of peanut butter and cups of coffee. When I feel like being more of a domestic adult, I use nut butters for topping my favorite pancakes and making dipping sauces.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m completely reliant on my phone. On a very basic level, it helps me wake up in the morning, check my email, and find the quickest route to work. I’m really fascinated, though, but how much our phones have changed the way we look at the world. We find more opportunities to create and share moments captured on our phones. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the like can sometimes be all-consuming, but they’ve also done a great job at making the world a smaller and more beautiful place.
I talked about my love for notebooks back in this post. That was one year and three moves ago, and that love is still going strong. I never leave the house without at least one notebook and a pen, because ideas are fragile little guys who like to leave at a moment’s notice.
A good cup of coffee the next morning is something that can motivate me to finally go to bed, which is really good when it’s 2 AM and I WILL NOT log off of Instagram. We all know coffee is made of magic, but if you’re looking for further explanation, watch this.
