A few weeks ago we shared our everyday business resources that we couldn't function without in our business. Today we're sharing some items that we could live without, but we wouldn't want to. They make the everyday office grind a little less dull.
01 Calendar - My personal favorite calendar is designed by one of my personal favorite designers, Massimo Vignelli. I can just as easily look on the computer or phone, but I love looking up and easily knowing the date. Plus, you can use the past months as wrapping paper throughout the year! Search "Stending Calendar" on Google before the new year and you'll find this beauty all over the place, it's my mom's go to Christmas gift for me every year.
02 Good Coffee - Nothing says "work mode" like a cup of coffee and I'll admit I'm a bit of a coffee snob. Pour over for me, please! A few of my favorite beans come from: Madcap, Kuma, and Sump. Before I begin the hustle, I'll pull out the v60 and make a cup, or two.
03 Inspiration - I get inspiration from lots of places. I have clipboard mood boards all over my office. But, The Great Disconnect is my favorite thing to read when I need a little kick in the inspiration pants.
04 Candles - I don't know what it is about candles, but they sure help me focus. The candles from here are my all time favorite. The Teakwood + Tobacco is my personal fav, but I haven't come across one yet that I dislike. If you ever need to send me a gift, please help me replenish my candle supply!
05 Personal Pictures - My work space is filled with personal pictures of family + friends. It's why I do work. It's why I make money. So I can live and adventure with them.
06 The Best Pens Ever - Lindsay and I would fight over these pens in our college days. They're simply the best. Gelly pens forever!
07 Succulents - I wish computer screens could exist outside a bit better, but unfortunately, our job keeps us locked inside a lot. Filling my workspace with a little bit of green helps. Succulents are my green of choice because, let's face it, it's the one plant I can keep alive. And simple planters are the best.
08 Happy Mail - We love to send our clients and business friends snail mail, so when this subscription service was released it was a no brainer.
