10 Thermoses for Your Soup 

 

After the holidays come and go, the realization that you have to freeze through another two months with no holiday cheer to keep you warm takes hold. You wear 32 layers and trudge to work wondering why you don't live in a warmer climate.

How do you keep yourself warm during these gray, snowy months? Soup! Soup is the answer. Make up a big batch and bring some to your dinner table, bring some to your couch, and bring the rest to your indoor fort. (Yes, we strongly urge you to build an indoor blanket fort!)

Because soup isn't the most portable thing in the world (spills!), we've rounded up 10 awesome thermoses that will prevent leaks, keep your soup hot, and serve as a vessel for you to eat out of. All you need now is some soup. Read it on The Kitchn

10 Fleur-de-Lis Finds to French-Up Your Kitchen

The fleur-de-lis symbol has been used for centuries in royal coats of arms, ancient architecture, flags, and more. Go to Europe and you'll spy them all over the place (especially in France and Florence). It's even an adopted symbol of New Orleans, a city majorly influenced by French culture.

Add some fleur-de-lis into your kitchen and you may think you're in Provence and not Poughkeepsie. How Julia Child of you! Read it on The Kitchn

Ethics Supply Co. Candles

We're living in some scaryyyyyyyyyyyyyy times, when kindly PARK RANGERS are leading the resistance and protections for nature and national parks are at risk.  For those of us who thought that no matter what your politics are that you could find common ground with everyone in the idea that parks like Yosemite are BEAUTIFUL, well, get with the program, cuz apparently that's not the case anymore!  LOL FOREVER.

Celebrate the national parks that may not be around much longer with Ethics Supply Co. Candles ($40), which are dedicated to parks like Yosemite, Denali, Zion.  And then maybe plan a roadtrip to visit them before they're gone.

Geek Wisdom

The Bible says "the meek shall inherit the Earth," but what it really should've said is: "the geeks shall inherit the Earth" (it also could've been A LOT clearer about pretty much everything else in there so religious nutbags would know that God doesn't want them to be dicks to people in his name—BUT THAT'S ANOTHER DISCUSSION ENTIRELY).  

Nerd culture has completely shifted the power dynamics in the world at-large. Don't believe me? Take a look at the world's richest people—they're all geeks like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Warren Buffet.

If you want to know how to succeed in high school, talk to a jock. If you want to know how to succeed in life, talk to a geek, or pick up a copy of Geek Wisdom ($12, Barnes & Noble), which compiles the advice of geeks from all walks of life to give you awesome perspective on everything.
