How is it already the last week of February?! It feels like the month FLEW by at the office, and we’re already deep into planning out our blog for the month of March!
In Phoenix, February is typically our favorite month of the year. The weather is amazing, the Phoenix Open brings tons of visitors to town, Spring Training is just around the corner, and everyone is budding with love as the romance of Valentine’s Day lingers.
To top off our February series of our “Things We Love” series, we had Rudé, our Events Director, and Allison, our Creative Assistant share with us some of their favorite accessories, snacks, and tech items!
Rudé – Events Director
I’m pretty guilty of browsing through Sprouts endlessly looking for new snacks, and that’s how I found Laughing Giraffe. I love macaroons to start with, but all the flavors that Laughing Giraffe has takes these to the next level. The chocolate ones have been my favorite so far. The best part is that all their snacks have only the cleanest ingredients and are healthy (organic, gluten free, raw, vegan, non-GMO)! It’s a win-win for my never-ending sweet tooth.
I recently discovered this brand at Sephora and am obsessed with all their stuff. I love that they use the freshest and most natural ingredients from their own farm to formulate all their products. I try to do a face mask once a week and all their sheet masks are amazing. The Lip Blooms also all smell SO good (I use Citrus Lemongrass) and are so moisturizing.
I love this water bottle because it’s pretty and it, most importantly, keeps my water seriously cold allllll day in the hot Phoenix sun. They have tons of colors and designs for everyone’s taste, too!
These are my favorite pens and go-to’s for taking notes and writing my to-do lists everyday (which I would not be able to function without). They write so smoothly, and it definitely doesn’t hurt that I can do some intense color coordination in my planner.
I’m pretty sure wireless headphones are one of the best things to happen in technology. Huge fan. These are amazing for working out, they don’t get tangled, and the sound is on point. They also come in a great case that makes them easy to throw in your bag and travel with. I use them in the office too and it’s great not having to be connected to my phone or computer. I would recommend these for anyone using headphones in any setting.
Allison – Executive Assistant
I love rompers. They are the all-in-one go-to outfit and embrace freedom like the star-spangled banner. You can go out in them, dance, sleep, work, picnic, etc. They are the universal clothing item and I love this one I got from Nasty Gal!
2. Pillow Mist
If you haven’t tried pillow mist you are seriously missing out. It’s like a scented relaxing aroma cloud guiding you to the most blissful sleep of your life. I highly recommend it! The one I use helps to relieve stress and smells so good.
Although I’m not a photography expert (yet), I’m still learning a lot about how to use this camera. I really enjoy playing around with my camera because it has great wifi and flipscreen features! I hope to set aside more time this year to really learn how to use it and make the most of my images!
This app is awesome and SO entertaining. You make your own avatar and can share goofy graphics and sayings to other people through texts or social media. It’s too cute!!
These guys are great for bringing snacks on the go! I’m pretty particular about food touching/getting soggy so I really like these. Perfect for bringing food to the office!
