CRAVE: First Edition

Crave, a verb:

1. To long for; want greatly, desire eagerly

2. To require; need

The routine has become second nature to us. We open our Facebook page, Twitter app, Instagram feed, Pinterest board, we start scrolling, and we click, click, click away at that little Like button as something passes by that strikes our fancy. In what feels like a matter of minutes, an hour passes, we close the tab or window or app, and we resume our day. But what happens to all the Likes? Just as quickly as we endorse a photo, article, video, we forget. Where does all our interest go? Is it really that fleeting? Or are we so overloaded with things we Like that the next time we visit our accounts, we hastily move on to the next interesting thing?

Call me a virtual hoarder, but I compile my Likes. I visit my activity log on Facebook, view posts I’ve liked on Instagram, scroll through my favorites on Twitter, and look through my likes on Pinterest. And in a much less robotic and more engaged manner, I extract the information I actually like and bookmark it in a folder called Cravings. Here are some of the most recent things I crave:


BRYR CLOGS

    I really appreciate the fact that you talked about Italian fashion, I love it. I keep a database of e-commerces selling Italian products online and it was a pleasure to discover brands like the ones you mention here. Great taste!
    What’s your favourite Italian fashion brand? Which other new brand should I discover?
