2016, why, hello. You arrived so quickly that we’re only just wrapping our minds around the fact that you’re already here. With the arrival of another year comes a flurry of inspiration – a fresh new calendar, crisp pages in the planner, travels on the horizon + projects in the queue. With our first post of #tglpreciousobjects to officially ring in 2016 here at Around the Pound, we couldn’t be more anxious to curate a few of the delectable details that have us churning with excitement.
As a designer, the search for a desktop calendar can be a daunting task. Aesthetics, functionality. Aesthetics, functionality. We’re quite certain there are those in the universe that satisfy the quest for both, yet this year, we decided to throw in the towel and vote for good looks. The winner, a gorgeously crafted beauty from Charleston-based 42 Pressed. Like the most delicious of cakes, layer upon layer of copper-foiled goodness, enveloped in a bevy of mellow hues that make for a palate so refreshing, you’ll never want to dream in color again. For keeping tabs on meetings and appointments on-the-go, Louis Vuitton wins the award for simplistic agenda style, their pint-sized refills up the ante when it comes to portable panache. That adorable little LV hangtag? We’re secretly stashing in our cache of paper lovelies, because, yes, the secret’s out, we have one of those, and undoubtedly, we’d dare to venture that you probably do too.
As the days start rolling and we find ourselves knee-deep in new initiatives, we resolve to remember the value of time. Aesthetics and frivolity aside, the calendar serves as a reminder to savor each moment, live each day to the fullest, and let the small stuff fall to the wayside. Unlike doggy bags from your favorite eatery, calendar days can’t be saved for later. Time is too precious to be treated as anything less, our wish for you is to make the most of yours.
