nice package

There are few joys in life greater than getting a package in the mail. [Tangent: And I don't mean a certified letter or a fat envelope filled with boring 401K info; I mean a legit package.] That 30 seconds of elation when you see a box on your front stoop or sticking out of your mailbox is priceless and possibly the impetus for my Ebay, Etsy and online shopping addictions. 

So today I have decided to start a feature that may or may not be an ongoing thing depending on my stick-to-it-tiveness. I call it "nice package" because I am classy...and will feature either really cool packaging or really cool products that I have gotten in the mail.

You know how they say, it's what's on the inside that counts? Well, sometimes that is bullshit? [Tangent: Why else would I have saved the Savannah College of Art & Design catalog from 10 years ago for the sole purpose of making it my design porn? The packaging design in that book would make heads roll. Don't judge me.] Further proof could be the fact that I may or may not have squealed when I recieved a literal "brown paper package tied up with string" from an overseas Etsy seller.
pardon the blur.
Who uses string anymore!?!?! That little detail was very exciting, so if you need an adorable iPhone case, like the one I got below, please go check out Nap Page, who uses napkins to make adorable phone accessories. [Tangent: Luckily not feminine napkins, that would be decidedly unsavory.]

Then yesterday I got some of my goodies for funding the kickstarter for a Moustache May friend. I'd been stalking his homemade marshmallow store called Wondermade for quite some time, lusting after the fun flavors like honey pear and pumpkin pie, so was excited that I could try a box for helping him raise money for a storefront in Florida. The only problem was the packaging was so frickin' cute, I didn't wanna break the seal.  The stripes, the colors, the font! It's all so happy- as marshmallows should be.

 The bottom picture was my order. Curiosity finally got the best of me and I busted open the Bourbon mallows to eat with my coffee this morning. Such a delicious idea. Liquor and sweets?!!?  My friend Alex also suggested that they would make a killer s'more! The likelihood of me making another order before the holidays is very high so I can take my cocoa to the next level.
