– This article on leaf blowers made me laugh. I hate them. Wholeheartedly. My neighbor across the street uses one and it turns me into a total hater. “The tragedy of the leaf blower is that it makes assholes of us all, users and neighbors alike.”

♥ / Onsen

A big thank you to Onsen for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed this week.

Looking for the perfect gift? Then this one’s for you :)

Onsen married functionality with minimalism to craft a lightweight bath towel that dries like its job depended on it. The key to this obsessively designed towel isn’t what they added, but rather what they eliminated. Most towels go through a chemical bathing process so that they feel soft and fluffy, at least at first. Not Onsen. Instead of short-lived softness that washes away, Onsen relies on premium materials and traditional techniques to deliver a thirsty towel that only gets softer over time.

Visit onsentowel.com to see special holiday offers.

(Psst… I have replaced all towels with Onsen towels in my house! LOVE them!)


(Interested in sponsoring a week of my RSS feed, learn more here.)

The Simple Joy of “No Phones Allowed”

“If you love yourself, you love others. If you hate yourself, you hate others. In relationship with others, it is only you, mirrored.”
