FIVE SURVIVAL ESSENTIALS.
One of my favorite types of blog posts are ones where you can really get to know the person behind the blog. They're not only fun to read, but it's a great way to connect and develop a deeper relationship with them.
So what's this got to do with survival essentials? Well, I was recently contacted by Man Crates, a new company that specializes in custom wooden crates for men (think manly crates--ones for athletes, gamers, and snackers, just to name a few). I may not be a guy, but if you're a daughter like me (or maybe a girlfriend, wife, or sister of a brother), you have a hard time shopping for the men in your life.
That said, Man Crates asked me a few weeks ago to participate in a blog challenge about survival essentials and asked me to create a post including my survival kit essentials. And for this indecisive girl over here, it was definitely a challenge. Here's what I picked:
1. My camera. It's pretty much attached to my hip since I hardly leave home without it. This was a no-brainer in my book!
2. Journals and lots of them. While I love typing, there are times in life when a handwritten note or journal entry is so much more personal. That, and I also love working on my non-existent calligraphy and handlettering skills.
3. My laptop (and internet access). I think this one could be cheating, but I'm not sure I can live without the internet. There are way to many resources--blogs, Pinterest, news, and television (ahem)--that come with the internet. So yes, if I'm stuck on a stranded island, I will be blogging about it.
4. Fresh berries (or fruit in general). My friends think I'm crazy that I love fresh fruit so much, but ever since I started picking huckleberries with my neighbors as a kid, I've been hooked.
So what are your survival essentials? Make up? Books? Internet access? Or how about some pizza?
Be sure to check out all of Man Crates' fun gifts and crate packages! I'm not even a guy, and some of them sound like a lot of fun. And just think, it makes it way easier when it comes to shopping for those men in your life (boyfriends, husbands, brothers, and fathers, too!).
p.s. I was not compensated in any way for writing this post. This was simply a fun blog challenge that I was asked to be a part of!
