The BritList: Raincoats for Your Stilettos, A Pep Talk Generator + More!
Good morning, afternoon and evening from the UK! I’ve spent the last week taking in one-man shows, comedy and lots of spectacular dance as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If you have no idea what that is, add it to your to-read-about list. It’s an amazing way to get inspired by thousands of art forms in a beautiful, historic city. Now, enough about me, let’s talk about you. And we’ll kick things off with a pep talk! ;)
1. The Pep Talk Generator: Bookmark this page NOW. Every refresh offers new empowering advice from pros, and TBH, it’s kind of addictive.
2. Everbright: Check out the most colorful interactive workspace, ever. Hero Designs boasts that their creative installation is “like a giant ‘refresh’ button for the brain.” AKA Brit HQ needs one of these, like, yesterday.
3. Stiletto Raincoat: If you New Yorkers need *another* reason to check out Tiger, the Danish IKEA-meets-Dollar-Store retail company, these stiletto raincoats are one of the many wacky and genius products for sale. It’s like a shower cap for your shoes!
4. Florabunda Mobile Charger ($30): Because your mobile charger should be just as cute as your phone case, duh.
5. Wheaties Beer: Breakfast of champions, meet happy hour. Now our favorite nostalgic cereal exists in beer form, and we’re really excited.
7. The Synth Series: Gigantic yarn installation + dancers = a crazy-inspiring art exhibit. We may just have to hop over to D.C. to see this one IRL.
8. Year Round Tape: Um, this calendar tape is a serious game changer. Washi tape wall calendars will never be the same.
9. Pretzel Making at Home ($17): From fried cinnamon sugar pretzels to pretzel grilled cheese with tomato basil jam, this comprehensive cookbook will make *all* of your pretzel-related dreams come true, promise.
