Just Can't Live Without It

Just Can't Live Without It

Posted by Rachel on May 20th 2019

Sure we all know there are essentials like food, water, shelter to survive. But aside from those, there are certain items that I do not feel I could live without on a day-to-day basis. 

1. Cell phone - The obvious contender. Between work, being a mom, a wife, and having a social life, I honestly do not think I could survive without a cell phone. Now I don't necessarily need a smart phone, if we went back to the good old days of flip phones, that would be sufficient for my needs. I would just require some form of mobile  communication, so that I have the ability to let others know I'm still breathing. Honestly I don't know how we ever lived without them. TBT to this beautiful RAZR, which I never actually owned but begged my mother for all the time.

For fun reading, check out this article about the RAZR actually making a comeback very soon!

2. Internet - another obvious one. I'm a new mom, and as a new mom Google and Alexa are my best friends these days. There are just so many weird things, and I need all the answers stat. What is this rash, is this color poo normal, what are these noises my infant keeps making, is there such a thing as too much sleep? Really, the list is endless, guys.

3. Hair Ties - OK, so hear me out...if you run into me during the week, 9 times out of 10 my hair is going to be down for work, BUT there are times I absolutely need to have my hair tied up ie. gym, summer heat, when my infant is getting handsy. If hair ties didn't exist, I would quite literally be a sweaty mess, and that's just not a good look for me. #sorrynotsorry

My new favorite hairties are our Teleties which grip my hair nicely, give my ponytail incredible volume, and don't leave a crease!

4. Target - I mean, who out of you could honestly live without Tarjé?! It is essential to my humanity. Between toiletries, snacks, clothes, baby gear, decor... you name it, Target has it. Need a last minute gift for my mother-in-law? Target has it. Almost out of formula? Target's got you covered. I'm bored and would love to frivolously spend my money on things I don't actually need? ON MY WAY TO TARGET!

5. Coffee - Let's be honest, most days I feel like I could just take a nap standing up, so having my morning pick-me-up is critical for daily functioning. I require 1 cup minimum for own sanity, and 2 cups for full potential. I'm really not too picky how it comes either--black, with sugar, or in a fun and fancy Starbucks order--I'll take it however I can get it.
