We so totally need this reversible dishwasher sign at work! Only problem, our dishwasher is not magnetic.
This Cheese Degrees Cutting Board made me laugh. My dad constantly lectured me and my sister on what angles we are allowed to cut cheese.
I just realized that I have owned FREITAG bags for a good 20 years now. Wow! And, interestingly enough, my love for the brand is stronger than ever. Running a product company myself, I understand how hard it is to reinvent yourself and keep pushing. The FREITAG brothers are sure doing a good job at it. Definitely on my list of founders I admire.
During my recent trip to Switzerland I noticed my friend’s FREITAG backpack called F251 Kowalski. The design is minimal, yet practical. FREITAG bags are basically indestructible, one of a kind pieces, made out of truck tarp and best of all, waterproof. Definitely added this one to my wishlist.
Now, this is a fragrance commercial that made me look. Thanks for breaking the mold, Spike Jonze.
Over on Picture This kids can draw their own fabric patterns, send in the designs and receive a custom cut-and-sewn dress in the mail. So much fun!
Would it be safe to suggest that we should file these Mosquito Netting Socks under ‘products the world doesn’t need’? They definitely made me laugh tough…
Ben Uyeda built a DIY spiral staircase using layered pieces of plywood cut with a CNC machine. This is absolutely stunning.
How incredibly stunning is this hand-cut paper by Annie Vought?
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.
