NOPE Button

This Nope Button Chrome extension is just what the office world needs: A coworker drops by and wants to ‘pick your brain’? Press a button in your Chrome browser to send a call to your phone. Apologize sincerely as you pick it up. Then watch your co-worker walks away. Funny.

Standing Pens

I want a little forest of standing pens on my desks. Beautiful.

Tattly recently launched the biggest collaboration to date: A vintage Vogue collection. The illustrations, all from the early 1900’s, celebrate Vogue’s 125th anniversary! It is an incredibly honor to be partnering with a prestigious brand such as Vogue. My heart!

Syr, a crowdfunded restaurant in Utrecht, Netherlands that employs recently arrived Syrian and Afghan refugees, offering them a platform to share their cuisine, to earn money, to share their stories and to pursue educational programs. We need more of this!

“Hymn” by VeilHymn

Can’t stop listening to VeilHymn, a musical collaboration between Devonté Hynes and Bryndon Cook. Part of Mailchimp’s beautiful and slightly absurd campaign consisting of videos and mini websites. My other favorite is MailShrimp.

Love Letters for My Children

This is the first Kickstarter video that made me cry! Maggie Doyne is the most remarkable human I have ever had the honor to meet. What an unstoppable force of good! YES to supporting this project. YES YES YES!

(Last year Maggie Doyne told her moving store at CreativeMornings. You can watch the talk here)

Let’s Share A Meal

This commercial made me tear up! And yes, we need to have more face-to-face connections! (Hence me starting CreativeMornings eight years ago!)

This art piece, titled forest of numbers, by Emmanuelle Moureaux is stunning. If you’re in Tokyo, make sure to experience it at the National Art Center.

The Strange History of Fingernail Clipping

Nail-clipping history, it turns out, is surprisingly complicated. We might never find out who actually invented the ubiquitous modern nail clipper, but we do know that around 1875, patents for the modern nail clipper began to appear.

I am mostly fascinated by the fact that by the end of the 19th century, superstitions about how and when to trim fingernails were pretty common. People couldn’t cut their fingernails on weekends out of fear that it might lead to back luck.

Here’s a link to the full post The Long, Slightly Strange History Behind Fingernail Clipping by Ernie Smith.

“Table Games”

I will definitely bring up this game by Sarah Kay at a future dinner with my friends.

Valentine’s Card for Single People

Mr.Bingo launched a fun new service for single people: Receive a bespoke piece of hand drawn art, in form of a Valentine’s Card, signed and created (with love) by Mr Bingo. Only drawback, it’s £40. But, thumbs up for the awesome idea.
