One of my favorite blog-friends-turned-real-life-friends, Heather, has a series she does called What I’m Loving Wednesday. To be quite frank, I adore these posts. I usually always learn about a new product, restaurant or idea that I must have or must do. (It also helps you get to know the blogger, and to realize that you have a trillion things in common with her…)
So I decided that for the month of December, I would give this “What I’m Loving Wednesday” concept a try! Because we are all looking for hot, shiny new ideas when it comes to making life easier and stuffing our stockings this time of year right?
As most of you know, my life is well beyond crazy these days. As a wedding planner, national marketing coordinator and blogger, I’m always on the go. Add to the situation that I’m six months pregnant and currently homeless. Basically – my life is consistently inconsistent. So to help with juggling my “work essentials” and my “holiday must-haves” I decided to revert back to my elementary school, pencil box days.
Yup, you read that right. A box. Whenever I sat down at a coffee shop, a client appointment, my grandmother’s couch or the picnic table at the river – I could never find my essentials in the bottom of my bag. Turns out a simple, yet pretty box, was just the solution I needed.
So what is currently in my box? Essentials that are helping me through the rest of this holiday season!
The randoms: gift tags, christmas ornaments and a shiny gold stapler. Because you never know when you are going to have to throw together a centerpiece, wrap a gift or staple together a 4 page wedding timeline…
Thank you notes and stamps are crucial this time of year as well. (I am seriously struggling to keep up with my thank you notes! So many friends have sent thoughtful holiday and baby gifts already! I swear I will be all caught up by the end of this week!)
The essentials: My planner, my iPhone, an iPhone charger and my Sudio Headphones. Yes, I am one of those old school-new school people who keeps everything written in my planner AND on my iPhone. Switching to “2016” on your iCal just isn’t quite as exciting as purchasing a new planner… #JustSayin.
Every time I relocate my workspace (whether it is for work or to wrap presents) you better believe that I am either talking to a client or jamming to my holiday tunes. The chic, white and rose gold Sudio Vasa Headphones are not only stylish but they have great sound quality. When I first got this new addition to my “office box” I called up my mom, my husband and my boss to make sure they could hear me and I could hear them. It was loud and clear on both ends!
I have been known to be a snob when it comes to headphones so there are a couple of things I definitely want to point out… The fact that my Sudio Vasa headphones have flat cords means that they don’t get knotted up when in my box (or in their provided leather case). There is a 3-button remote and mic, making these easy to use when working, driving and wrapping gifts. Additionally, the ear buds are legit. They stay in your ears without slipping.
Also included in the package is a gold clip to help keep the buds and mic in place (which I have found great, but not 100% necessary, as my clients have been able to hear me clearly without the mic clipped to the top of my shirt) and replacement ear bud covers. The replacement bud covers excited me because who really likes to share ear buds with other people?? Not this girl. If someone else needs to borrow my Sudio Vasa’s, I can switch out the ear buds and not worry about co-mingling ear wax!
Wearing my Sudio Vasa headphones not only allows me to multi-task like a champ, with both hands free, but they also help keep me organized while preventing Nana from listening in on my normal speaker phone calls. (No one said that living with your 91 year old grandmother would be easy…)
In addition to loving my new box, my shiny and random “must-have” items and my new Sudio Vasa Headphones, I am loving the fact that Sudio is offering my 2 cats & chloe readers 15% off with the Sudio Promo Code: 2catsandchloe If you’re in need of a last minute stocking stuff or Christmas gift – I highly recommend you jump on this deal immediately!
So what do you think? Have I gone off the deep end by going back to my “pencil box” days? Go ahead and judge me all you want, but if it helps me stay organized, I’m game! What am I missing in my box?
Many thanks to Sudio for gifting me my new Vasa Headphones! While these were given to me in return for this post, my review and thoughts are all my own!
