10 Things We're Loving Now: Disaster-Ready Bags, Macaron Soap, Ed Sheeran's Visual Journey + more

Those who don't like stirring, we have something for you, too.


(SPOT.ph) We're not all about the cuteness this week. Okay, so we have a book on Ed Sheeran, but we also found something that you'll totally need during sudden disasters. Plus, a Rubik's Cube to secure your valuables, a self-stirring mug (it's like magic!), and a really cool radio!



Taclob's Disaster-Ready Bags (P2,999/adult, P3,499/kids)

These colorful bags are the latest design from Taclob, a brand made by and for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. It's incredibly functional, with pockets and compartments to organize your every need during a sudden disaster. You'll want to put this in a handy place. For an additional P999, you can have it already jam-packed with a kit of your choice: Sanitation and First Aid, Personal Care, or Emergency and Rescue. You better leave room for some sardines, too! — Sasha Lim Uy, Eat+Drink section editor


For orders, e-mail Taclob at support@taclobph.com.




Chocolate Milk Mixer Mug (P795)

Still stirring with a spoon? Ain't nobody got time for that! This self-stirring mug does the job for you. Don't let its name limit you, either. You can use it to mix yourself a cup of coffee (perfect when you're just too sleepy). — Aimee Dacanay, staff writer

Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey (P999)

Celebrity books are taking up more and more space on bookstore shelves these days, most of them giving fans some not-so-clear insight into the artists' lives. Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey is a surprisingly meaty change, with text written by Ed himself tracing the evolution of his career (and life, really) from an ambivalent student to a world-famous singer. How did he get started? What's it like working with Taylor Swift? That and more, plus sketches of Ed from his childhood days, make this book a sure must-have for any fan. — Joanna Manalastas, editor-in-chief
