Steven Pressfield on Investments

In his new book, Tribe of Mentors, Tim Ferris asks Steven Pressfield the following question: “What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you’ve ever made?”

“I’ve never invested in the stock market or taken a risk on anything outside myself. I decided a long time ago that I would only bet on myself. I will risk two years on a book that’ll probably fall flat on its face. I don’t mind. I tried. It didn’t work. I believe in investing in your heart. That’s all I do, really. I’m a servant of the Muse. All money is on her.”

Vegetables!

Trying to convince my body to crave more vegetables. Maybe wearing them will help?

Cat Illustrations

This guy by Kamwei Fong made me laugh. There are more cat illustrations in this post.

Wow, I am really a cat person now, am I?

Kindness Scales

“It scales better than competitiveness, frustration, pettiness, regret, revenge, merit (whatever that means) or apathy. Kindness ratchets up. It leads to more kindness. It can create trust and openness and truth and enthusiasm and patience and possibility.

Kindness, in one word, is a business model, an approach to strangers and a platform for growth.It might take more effort than you were hoping it would, but it’s worth it.”

Everything Here is Wonderful

This dog bed makes me want to get a dog.

Party Hats for Grown Ups

Party Hats for Grown Ups made me smile. Especially the 2017 Good Riddance New Years Eve Edition, designed by designers and artists!

Food Balancing Bulldog

This post made me laugh out loud. Dog owner stacks food on this sleeping bulldog. I have so many questions! Also, I love you internet!

Bat Kite

I laughed seeing this bat kite. F-U-N!

Here We Are

Here We Are is Oliver Jeffers’ latest picture book. It’s gloriously beautiful. In the heart. If you have a little one, buy one. His books are my kids’ favorites.

Hi / Bye Gloves

These Donna Wilson gloves are funny!

Happy Monday!

This capture by Jason Polan made me laugh. If you don’t follow him on Instagram, and like the slightly weird and absurd, you should. I love what he notices, like the above frozen toy frog. Instead of signing his name he often draws something. And then, he is a really talented illustrator.

No One Is Normal

We are all privately haunted by a fear that we’re freakishly odd. But in fact, as this bag celebrates, no one is ever quite normal

Scrub Daddy

I was at a friend’s house the other day and got use her Scrub Daddy. (Yes, I am talking about a dish sponge.) It cracked me up, seeing it first, and I honestly didn’t take it seriously. Come on, it’s a smiley face. But then I got totally into it. And cracked myself up how excited I was getting over a simple sponge. The texture changes based on your water temperature. Firm in cold water and soft in warm water. Seeing it in the store, I would have never bought it – it seems to gimmicky. But now I am all Scrub Daddy’d out in my house.

(The holder is hilarious!)

This Photoshoot!

The idea of a fashion brand having kids model their grown-up clothes is all kinds of fantastic. Love these photos!

No Head

I am in love with these weird, headless photographs by Guiseppe Pepe.

Bandimal

Lucas Zanotto makes the funnest kids apps. Bandimal, a music composer, is crazy adorable.

(I am big fan overall. I love his Miximal Book. And my son can play with Loopimal for hours!)

Ember Ceramic Mug

Look, it’s a mug that comes with an app! The Ember Ceramic Mug keeps your beverage at the perfect temperature from the first sip to the last. It also comes with a charging coaster. I guess it’s cool but it also made me laugh!

Wooden Bed House

Totally enamored with this wooden house bed. This one is in kids size but I want one for my bedroom…

It’s Monday!

Let’s do this thing.

The Tianjin Binhai Library

The Tianjin Binhai Library, a 33,700m2 cultural centre, features a luminous spherical auditorium around which floor-to-ceiling bookcases cascade. The undulating bookshelf is the building’s main spatial device and is used both to frame the space and to create stairs, seating, the layered ceiling and even louvres on the façade. A stunning project by MVRDV. Mind blown! I want to see this IRL! I love architecture!

NOPE Eye Masks


This NOPE Eye Mask made me laugh.

Colorize by The Seaweed Sisters

This video makes me happy.
