Scented Tattly Jewelry Tattoos

My daughter is going nuts over the Tattly Candy Jewelry Tattoos we launched this week. The designs are by Julia Rothman and the unique sweetly scented fragrance was created in collaboration with Agilex Fragrances. Think light notes of vanilla frosting, candy corn, cotton candy, and all things sweet and delicious!

Words by Christoph Niemann

Words by Christoph Niemann

The mighty Christoph Niemann published a new book called Words. More than 300 words inspired by Dr. Edward Fry’s list of sight words are paired with playful illustrations. I am such a fan of his work! And Team Tattly is proud to carry some of his designs, the Petting Zoo is a favorite!

Christoph Niemann Tattly

Tattly by Christoph Riemann

My favorite perk of running Tattly is that I get to collaborate with talented individuals like Christoph Niemann. Yesterday, we launched a new set with his designs, it’s called The Petting Zoo. And my kids are crazy for them.

I am a huge admirer of Christoph’s work. You might have seen his New York Covers, his Books or maybe you’ve watched his CreativeMornings talk.

And now you can wear more of his art on your skin. Enjoy!

Zip And Flip Bear Head Rest Black

This coming Friday I will be taking the kids to the Swiss Alps for our yearly sausage-eating-fresh-air-breathing-family-hugging-summer-vacation. Ever since they were little, they have been getting gifts on the airplane. It has been one of my secret weapons to keep them entertained. Simple, tiny surprises, such as stickers, post-itnotes and washable markers, tiny puzzles, etc. They’d get one whenever they would start go stir-crazy. Even though they’re older now and totally capable to entertain themselves, they love the tradition of getting little surprises. They don’t know yet that I will be surprising them with Kikkerland’s Zip & Flip Pillows. It’s a night flight to Zurich so they’ll come in handy. I can already see their smiles…

Reign Pin

In order to better understand its e-commerce customers, Mailchimp started an online store. The concept is simple: They collaborate with creative people to make fun, unique products for good causes. First they started out with design-y socks, and yesterday they launched 4 pins inspired by some of their favorite Atlanta rappers. The one above gets my vote. My favorite part of this experiment is the newsletters they send out, documenting the challenges of starting an online store. All so familiar! Love what their doing! Also, T (6) and I got to visit Mailchimp HQ yesterday and look what happened!

JAM – Online Courses for Kids


I am continuously impressed by what Zach and his team are coming up with. First DIY and now JAM: online courses for kids. I wish this would have been around (and the internet) when I was a kid, growing up on the Swiss country side, *so* hungry to learn and connect with other kids. Can’t wait to see what other classes will be next! (Secretly hoping for a sewing class!)

Golden Ratio Finder

Golden Ratio FinderGoldenSectionFinder-blue-silo-01-PCGSFB_2048x2048

Perfect proportions observed in nature often follow the theory of the golden ratio. Historically, artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty in a theoretical rather than intuitive way. Use the Golden Section Finder, a pocket sized gazing device, to locate the proportional perfection in your surroundings. Totally going to use this with my kids, walking around the city!

Scented Tattly – The Perennial Set

scented tattoos

I can barely contain my excitement over the launch of Tattly’s first scented tattoos. The Perennial Set launched yesterday, featuring sumptuous florals by French watercolor artist Vincent Jeannerot.

Their unique fragrance was created in collaboration with Agilex Fragrances, and includes notes of Dewy Fuchsia Petals, Pink Poppies, Ylang Ylang, and Poplar Wood. Next time, instead of a bouquet of flowers for that special someone, bring a Perennial Set instead.

Work at a fragrance house or beauty company? We also do custom tattoos with fragrance.
