Few things have the ability to rival an item you just purchased that is not only durable, stylish, gets the job done (whatever that may be), is relatively affordable and won’t cause you to question said purchase with doubt and regret mere moments or days after. And so begins the start of our new column on The Weekly Cut dubbed “The One Where/When/With” (fill in with the appropriate adverb). Launching this February, our team will aim to help you discover what we’re currently coveting and clicked “buy now” on. Whether it’s the latest face wash that blows out of the way any other product you’ve used before to clean your skin, that one style of boots you swear can be purchased on the high street as opposed to at a high-end price, that one plant that transformed the vibe of your home and also acts as a natural antidepressant, just to name a few. Welcome to the one thing you share with and text everyone about and influence to buy for their own pleasure too!
Dipping a toe into the water of fresh new arrivals and mere moments later you find yourself purchasing something you may or may not have needed to begin with. This week on The One With, we share that one item that will keep you company all summer long, the reusable straw. Not only is it much more hygienic than a cardboard one that melts at the touch and feel of liquid, this one by Urban Outfitters comes as a set of 4 straws – 2 bendable and 2 straight with a cleaning brush and carrying pouch. They’re made by stainless steel and are easy to wash after use, whether by hand or dishwasher. And since 99% of restaurants and bars have not yet adopted a non-cardboard straw option, we say BYOS (bring your own straw) and your drink will instantly look more presentable and plastic-free.
Also a great option for bonfires on the beach or a housewarming gift for an at-home dining invitation!
