GifMuse

Lots of mesmerizing GIFs, like the ones above, can be found over on GIFMUSE.

New Life

I could have used this keychain 2.5 years ago when I started a big new chapter in my life. What a great gift for someone embarking on a new adventure.

Wearing Every Single Piece of Clothing

Libby Oliver photographed individuals wearing every single piece of clothing they own. Beautiful.

AirPods Case

The Catalyst Case for AirPods is waterproof, drop proof and allows easy access to the Lightning port. It comes with a detachable carabiner so you can easily hook it on to your belt, bag or purse. Smart.

Today’s Tattly release is a multisensory experience combining the calming scent of Eucalyptus, a sound meditation, and six sacred geometric shapes. The accompanying sound meditation download by Sara Auster features her playing crystal singing bowls. Zen out everyone!

(Not sure what sacred geometry is? Here you go)

Art In Progress

A post shared by TAPPAN (@tappancollective) on

My son has been drawing on giant paper rolls, which made me show him the above video: Art in progress, featuring Caroline Denervaud aka @ideih on Instagram.

Tug

I was beyond bummed when I learned Apple killed the MagSafe on their latest laptops. I am clumsy and tend to trip over cables and thanks to MagSafe my laptops didn’t go flying. No longer.

Meet Tug: It works with any power cord you might trip on, by placing the magnetic break-away connection at the outlet. Smart.

Windows of San Francisco

Windows of San Francisco is an interactive “documentary” featuring views from 100 windows around San Francisco. What a wonderfully conceptual, slightly voyeuristic experiment!

(Thank you Jon Murray!)

Outline Rubber Stamp Set

This rubber stamp set is looooovely! Oh the possibilities!

Hand-knit, Sculptural Jewelry

Absolutely loving this hand-knit, sculptural jewelry by Nora Fok.

Three Minutes

Loving these bold, ceramic necklaces by Brooklyn based Shape Shape Shape Shape.

Barreleye Fish

What? A create with a transparent head? Please meet Barreleye Fish. You can see some fantastic images of this creature in Blue Planet 2. Unreal.

(Thank you Jodi!)

Oliver Jeffers Animal Tattly Tattoos

Yesterday team Tattly launched a Wildlife Set with designs by Oliver Jeffers. I can’t handle the cuteness! The illustrations are pulled from Oliver Jeffers’ books, including his latest, Here We Are, which debuted as #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list.

That Orangutan won my heart! Which one gets your thumbs up?

Patience is a Key in Negotiations

If you want to be an expert negotiator — or even a savvy game theorist — you must master one thing. Patience.

We Have So Much in Common

Interesting doormat message. By the folks that created the BEST socks ever.

Gold Foil + Color Tattly by Jess Phoenix

Team Tattly just launched these four colorful bouquets with a flicker of gold foil by new artist Jess Phoenix. The shimmering of the gold elements really make these stunning.

Substitute Phones

The Substitute Phone by Clemens Schillinger made me laugh, but then also admit it could actually be helpful in trying to combat my raging smartphone addiction. It’s the grown-up equivalent of the fidget cube my kids are playing with.

718 GIFs + 1 Song

My friend Mark clearly had too much time on his hands on a rainy Sunday in November of 2013 when he assembled 718 of his favorite GIFs into one highly entertaining video. This is the BEST!
