Today I brought home some Chatty Socks, socks with faces. Haven’t seen my kids this excited in a long time. (I think they’re pretty cool too!)
This egg holder makes your soft-boiled egg look like it just landed on your plate, from outer space. Made me smile.
I am not even a cat person but yet I am getting excited over this smartly designed cat bowl by Hepper. The tray forms a moat around the bowls that catches whatever falls to the side.
Earlier this month, my friend Jen gifted me a beautiful 30min hourglass. It’s a beauty just to look at, but also oh-so-helpful for someone like me who would like to improve focus. I admit, I get easily distracted by the world around me and the always tempting internet.
I now use the hourglass to implement the idea of the Pomodoro Technique. It works! (It’s hard though!)
This sweeper and funnel is a beauty. And yes, it’s crazy to spend $70 on something trivial like this, but it would sure make me happy every time I used it.
Love the design and message of this UGMONK shirt: Minimize. I might call that the theme of 2015.
Every meaningful conversation starts with a good question. Here are 100 to help kick things off. Makes for a great dinner party companion.
My friend Jen gifted me this stunning Brooklyn made candle yesterday. It’s the design of Andrej Urem, who hand pours them here in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn. He has several designs that interlock, which means you can stack them. Not sure that’s practical but it sure is fun. Check out the entire collection and don’t let yourself deter you from the low-quality photography on his site. The candles are stunning!

This flat, reusable water bottle made me look: It’s memobottle, a slimline, BPA free, dishwasher-friendly, reusable bottle that resembles the size and shape of pieces of paper.
This is the best thing ever: You can buy a Certificate of Awesomeness to give to whoever deserves one, designed and signed by Jessica Hische. Look! It has rainbow edge-painting! Over the top? Yes!
All certificates ship with a rainbow pencil so the recipient or co-signer can add their own signature. That Jessica Hische! Always coming up with awesome stuff!
