Socks With Faces

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!)

Waytools Textblade Keyboard

As someone who tries not to type anything longer than one or two sentences on my phone, I could see myself using this keyboard by Waytools when on the go.

Space Egg

This egg holder makes your soft-boiled egg look like it just landed on your plate, from outer space. Made me smile.

30 Minutes Hourglass

30 minute hourglass

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!)

Stylish Sweeper and Funnel

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.

Net Neutrality Pins

Net Neutrality Pins

Show your support for a free and open internet by buying Tumblr’s Net Neutrality Pin and putting small holes in your shirt. You’ll be making a stand against internet slow lanes and look good doing it. Well done, Dan Blackman!

(I already have one and love it!)

Stackable Candles by Andrej Urem

Au collection Candle

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!

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly thinking about my master plan. So, this tote, by Paper Jam Press is absolutely perfect for me. (Also available: Everyday I’m Hustling.)

What started with a few posters has turned into a small empire; wall decals, temporary tattoos and now bags. Well done, Arianna!

Memobottle

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.

Hashtag Garden

Hashtag garden is a sculpture garden that you can hang on your wall. Think air plants, wood and moss. I have one floating over my computer at work and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Each “Hashtag” garden is an original artwork and hand-made in Los Angeles. Also available are @ symbol, LA, NY and PLAY.
