I get questions all the time about my work-from-home set up. Especially considering I used this same set up to do radio for 13 different cities while I was with iHeartRadio.
Whether you’re doing something as complex as live radio or as simple as podcasting, Instagram lives or content creation the following tech is everything I have in my own home office. Most of these items are discounted today. By the way, if you’re interested in home and kitchen items, I have some of those favorites below.

I swear by these plug and play mics. They work with iPhone. If you need the Android version you can find them here.

Home & Kitchen
Did you hear? I’m expecting my first baby. I’m not getting into that topic on this post, you can read about it here. But what I will say is that becoming a mom has made me hyper vigilant about what products and items I have in my home. Here are a few discoveries I’ve made that I think you’ll like.
I love to eat and I love for what I’m eating to taste delicious. So I always look for alternatives and simple switches that level up my nutrition without sacrificing flavor. One of the recent discoveries I’ve made is the Nutr Machine. This is a healthy, planet-friendly alternative to traditional dairy or store-bought milks with a ton of ingredients I can’t pronounce. I got mine in the mail a few days ago and I’ve played with a few recipes to make almond and cashew milk. Once I figure out my favorite I will share on my Instagram. You can also make oat, walnut, soy, coconut, rice, flax, peanut & more in just minutes. If this is up your alley you can purchase yours here and use the code GIGI10 to save 10% on your order.
Let’s talk food. If you follow me on instagram then you’ve seen me post about ZENB a ton of times.
This is the only plant based pasta I have ever tasted that is actually flavorful and tastes like actual pasta. The reason I love substituting my pasta with ZENB is that it’s 100% yellow peas, has more fiber, less carbs and a ton of different options.
From microwavables to different noodle options to delicious natural sauces you can level up your pasta game to a much healthier (and more delicious) level.

Small, powerful, no drip, steam iron. I have used this on every type of fabric I own with success. It’s light and the AC cord is long as heck.
I always pack this with me when I’m traveling and I take it with me when I’m creating content on the go for a quick iron in whatever public bathroom I’m changing. Hence the note on the long power cord. It comes in handy.
As a side note, this also makes for a great gift.
Which of these is already in your shopping cart?
