A Helping Hand: These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Office Supplies

One of my biggest weaknesses by far is office supplies. Everyone has their triggers and when it comes to accouterments to decorate my space, there’s never enough. I tell myself that it doesn’t matter because these are things I use and therefore, somehow practical (excuses, excuses).

With that mindset, I picked up this hand cup last week. And with that, an Instagram shot of the said hand last night produced a hilarious roundup of one-liners. It’s been great for holding pens, makeup brushes and so much more. And even better, the end is magnetic for those stray paper clips and bobby pins!

Beyond that, I also stopped into Canoe for the first time ever last week. I know, I know…how had I never made it into this store?! A minimalist haven of perfectly curated everyday items, it very much reminded me of the MoMA gift shop. I walked away with a beautiful Ogami notebook comprised of pages made of stone that also happen to be waterproof. And, a very gigantic eraser. It’s so large it’ll easily double as a paperweight.

How many office supplies are too much? I haven’t quite figured that out yet but I need to get my addiction in check before Hoarders comes calling.

Minneapolis Recommendations

At the very end of this month, I’ll be heading to Minneapolis for the first time ever with The Blogcademy. Joey is from Minneapolis and has been going on for years about what an awesome city it is so I can’t wait to finally see it for myself! Before our class, we’re going to have an open day on our hands for exploring.

So, I want to know: what are the must sees? What restaurants should we absolutely not miss? What shops do you love most? Let me in on your secrets!
