Right now, I want you to think about your favorite brand. I’ll wait………..Got it? Good. Now I’m in no way a mind reader, but I’m going to guess that you thought of a clothing store or a fashion designer or a makeup brand of some sort. Am I right? Thought so. Now if someone were to ask me this question, my answer would be something very different. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion and makeup brands with everything in me, but there is a company I am absolutely LOVING right now and that is ban.dō.
If you haven’t heard of ban.dō, then I am so sorry that you have been missing out on something so wonderful. Essentially, ban.dō is a lifestyle brand who focuses on creating fun, quirky accessories and gifts that everyone needs in their lives. I guarantee by the end of this post you’re going to say to yourself, “wow…I need to buy everything from there”.
First off, I need to point out that this brand has spot on put my sense of humor and quirky personality into every bit of their products. It’s silly, it’s fun, it’s 100% amazing. If I could buy every single product I definitely would. Sadly my bank account prevents that from happening. I would say the most spectacular product on their website is a gigantic unicorn raft. Let me repeat that, A UNICORN RAFT. IT IS SO AMAZING. I so badly want to float around on it and feel magical.
More realistically though if you’re not interested in floating around a pool like a unicorn princess (don’t know who wouldn’t be), ban.dō has the absolute best agendas, phone cases, gym accessories and more. The other day I went on a ban.dō spree and bought some pretty incredible things (ban.dō is available at Macy’s, most bookstores, ASOS, and a bunch of other cool places). If you’re anything like me, you know that buying notebooks and planners is really enjoyable for some reason. I must have 12 half-used notebooks and planners because I always find one that’s cuter than the last. I swear to myself I’ll actually fill this one up. I never do. It’s a problem. However, my theory is you can never have enough places to write down your ideas, so naturally I purchased another notebook. It was just too cute to pass up.
Along with the adorable notebook, I also came across this epic phone case. As soon as I saw it and held it in my hand, I knew it was the one. Everybody these days (including myself), needs to be reminded to chill out. With all the stress and gossip and drama and violence going on in the world, we all need to be advised to take a chill pill. I don’t necessarily plan on changing the world’s emotional state with a phone case, but I can try.
If my rambling and fan-girling over ban.dō hasn’t brought you to their site yet or interested you in checking them out, then I’m not sure what will. This brand is truly awesome for bringing the light-hearted, silly sense of humor to every day things. We need more brands like ban.dō who lighten the mood and bring happiness to people. Props to you ban.dō, I’ll forever be a very loyal customer, and I hope I made loyal customers out of you guys as well.
Stay sunny 🌻
