These soy sauce dipping dishes by Duncan Shotton take advantage of the natural colour gradation that occurs in soy sauce at shallow depths to give the illusion of three-dimensional shapes once filled. LOVE!
Airplane neck pillows do nothing for me. I don’t understand why they are so popular. This head hammock on the other hand might be useful.
And yeah, I couldn’t care less that it looks silly. That’s what happens when you reach your 40s.

The YOGO eco origami yoga mat 2.0 version now comes with a handle! It folds up to a super-portable size and its attached straps form a handle and can also be used to hang and dry the mat. It’s made of durable natural rubber, with a cotton mesh inside that keeps it from stretching. It stays clean because the bottom doesn’t roll onto the top.
And, YOGO now gives one Food Tree per mat plus sustainable agriculture training to poor families in developing countries. Plus, you can buy a tree for $1 in their store. Just like that you can add a tree to your cart during check out. Love this.
Bummer that the grey one is already sold out.
This minimalist looking Cord Keeper makes sure your power cables stay on top of your desk or nightstand instead of flying off the back every time something is unplugged. Made by hand in Madison, Wisconsin from reinforced concrete.
Scale Denim aims to make jeans with different inseam and waist sizes. So no matter how tall or short you are, you will have a pair of jean that perfectly fit your body through the waist, thigh, knee, and calf. As a tall woman, I endorse this idea. But, oh wait, currently only available for men. Ops! Ok then guys, support the Kickstarter and help get this idea off the ground.
For the last two months I have been wearing this “watch” and it has quickly become my favorite accessory. As someone who constantly worries about what’s ahead, it’s been a successful way for me to remind myself to stay in the moment! And, the personal reminder on the back of the watch, which is customizable, reminds me be kind to myself.
This is a game designed to sharpen our sense of what we should be looking for in love. It comprises a number of cards which describe some leading habits and character traits in people, inviting us to reflect on what truly matters to us and what we could endure, if we had to. Curious about this. Ordering.
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…
Fontself lets you easily make your own font in Illustrator. Something I want to show my 10 year old…
I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, "If this isn't nice, I don't know what is."

Given that my companies Tattly and CreativeMornings run on Dropbox, I was excited to see that they launched a new collaborative tool called Paper. It enables teams to collaborate on different projects. It’s a virtual piece of paper where teams can write things down and that can also handle things like YouTube videos, Google docs, and images, all of which automatically appear embedded on the page when added. Interesting.

Tasarım Takarım (I Wear Design) turns children’s drawings into fine jewelry, translating the doodles into small pendants made of silver or gold. Totally doing this.
I usually don’t like plain decorative things without a purpose but this miniature pine forest won my heart.
