4 Things We're Absolutely Obsessed with This Week

Every week we are excited to create a list of people, businesses, apps, podcasts, and other crush-worthy things we’ve come across over the weeks and want to share with you all! These people and businesses are out there living their VERB, and that is exactly what we love to see! This week’s crushlist is all about two small badass companies, a hilarious podcast, and an online marketplace that is giving back!

Ink Meets Paper

"Text less, write more" is the motto of local paper company, Ink Meets Paper. Founded by Allison and Jamie Nadeau, this company pours their heart into their adorable greeting cards and paper goods. They even offer calligraphy classes to bring back the charm and nostalgia of the handwritten craft.

The Blushing Script

We’ve been crushing on this self-taught badass owner Lindsey, of The Blushing Script, an online shop full of tons of custom goodies 🖤

Being a small business owner has taught her to always embrace her trial and error, while constantly learning new ways to tackle new ideas.  Go check out her Instagram for all the holiday feels 🙌🏼

This online marketplace is all about shopping for a cause, with a mission to “lead a generation towards generosity”. They aim to spread awareness and gain funding for great causes worldwide by producing made-to-order products, such as t-shirts and hoodies, to empower people like you to celebrate the work of local artists and non-profits. Founded in 2011 by Partridge and Chavez, Sevenly is a unique way to spread your generosity, while emphasizing all people matter. 🖤

Pick the Brain (Podcast)

If you’re someone with a inquisitive sense of humor, and want something that is both insightful and entertaining, the Pick Your Brain podcast is for you!  The name of this podcast really says it all, while exploring ideas from the smartest of minds in productivity, health, and self-improvement.  And to quote the hosts, Erin Falconer and Jeremy Fisher, “Anything in life is better if it’s funny”. We couldn’t agree more!

Our favorite episode so far is “The Funny Relationship Between Success and Failure” 🖤🙌🏼
