3 Things | June 2018

Each month in our newsletter, CURRENTLY, we list a few of our favorite monthly finds from podcasts to travel inspiration to home goods.

  1. One of our favorite Fayetteville restaurants, Khana Indian Grill, just started stocking these amazing popsicles made locally by Me Latte Chocolate for the summer! I grabbed a mango + chile popsicle recently while having dinner there with a good friend and now I’m hooked. It’s a super satisfying, icy summer treat made from fresh ingredients.
  2. Hackwith Design House is a Minnesota based clothing company that Sarah and I have admired for a while. Their beautiful, simple clothing is made in-house in Minnesota with women of all shapes, sizes, and styles in mind. And they’ve just launched the Sustain Shop, where they sell samples and second hand HDH pieces. I love this option because they are giving new life to gently used items while reducing waste and also creating a more affordable avenue for those trying hard to shop responsibly on a limited budget :)
  3. I live in an old house, I have an indoor rabbit, and a builder husband (who’s a very clean person but nobody’s work boots ever smell great). I had read somewhere about these air purifying charcoal bags so I decided to give them a try. What’s great about them is that they aren’t just covering up the pet smell or the laundry room shoe pile with a different overwhelming scent, they actually purify the air and neutralize the odor. I’ve been impressed and this comes as a pack of four so I also stuck one in my car for the summer! If they stop feeling as effective after a month or two, simply stick them out in the sun for a few hours to rejuvenate the charcoal.

Sarah's 3:
  1. Next up in my podcast queue: I'm extremely intrigued by The Habitat podcast by Gimlet Media which chronicles this real life experiment of six people who work for a year as imitation astronauts on imitation planet Mars (which is actually a remote mountain in Hawaii). They live alone together in a domed structure, eat astronaut food, wear astronaut suits etc. and video diary all throughout. Sounds fascinating to me.
  2. When I was visiting a friend in Fort Worth a few weeks ago, she made the simplest popcorn ever and I've been making it nonstop since. Just scoop a tablespoon or so of coconut oil into your regular sauce pot and turn the stove on high-ish. Wait a second for the oil to liquify and add 1/4 cup or so of popcorn kernels. Place the lid on top and wait for 30 seconds to a minute until the popping slows down. Pour the popcorn into a bowl and salt to taste. Less waste, better ingredients!
  3. Thoroughly enjoyed this Cup of Jo interview from a couple years ago with Linda Rodin (celebrated stylist and founder of the skincare line Rodin and Fields). I love hearing voices like hers talking about embracing aging as it comes and thriving in the second half of life.
