Father's Day Gift for the Chef with Hampton Forge

Father's Day is just around the corner and all great father's deserve a nice gift and celebration for all the hard work they do. If you're celebrating a father who loves to cook, your going love the Knight 13 piece Titanium Plated Cutlery Block Set by Hampton Forge.

This set would make an amazing Father's Day Gift for so many reasons. The knife set is not only stunning but it does its job very well. It sliced and cut everything perfectly. It made prepping meals so much easier and faster. The the color combo of titanium and black couldn't be more sleek and masculine. It's very modern and my husband definitely liked the look and feel of this set.

I love the slim design of the space saving block. It takes up half the space of my old one and looks so much better. The knives go in and out of the block easily and stay in place once inside. It was really easy to clean the block and knives and after a week of heavy use they still look brand new. I can't recommend this set enough. We are so much happier prepping in the kitchen these days. A great quality knife set is so important and this one is all around great. 

I have included the Hampton Forge description and links for the knife set below in case you want to learn more. I hope you have fun celebrating the special father in your life! Happy Father's Day to All!

Let's Play the 30 Day Minimalism Game

Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus are The Minimalists and write about living a meaningful life with less stuff. I have been following them for a few months now and love listening to their podcast and reading their blog. I had the pleasure of watching their documentary last night, It was amazing! It was so inspirational and eye opening. I will be writing a post all about the documentary next week, so stay tuned!

I recently found this fun game on TheMinimalists instagram account and wanted to share with all of you and invite you to join me.

So lets get this party started for June and feel free to play catch up if you start late.

Here are the rules to the game
found on The Minimalists Instagram account

1. Play the game with the Turquoise Boho Tribe or find a friend or family member who's willing to get rid of their excess stuff

2. This month, each person must get rid of one thing on the first day. On the second day, two things, three items on the third. I think you get the drill and yes that means on day 30, you get rid of 30 items. No biggie you can do it!

Anything can go! From clothes, furniture, electronics, tools, decorations, etc. You can either donate, sell, or trash. Whatever you do, each material possession must be out of your house—and out of your life—by midnight each day. It’s an easy game at first. However, it starts getting challenging by week two when you’re both jettisoning more than a dozen items each day. Whoever can keep it going the longest wins; you both win if you can make it all month. Bonus points if you play with more than two people.

I will journal all of the things I get rid of and share pictures on a blog post at the end of the month. So join along with this tribe or grab your family and friends and lets play! Hashtag #TurquoiseBohoMG and #MinsGame on all your social media posts and pics!
