Hix


My 7 year old is completely smitten with Hix, a versatile new toy consisting of four soft, convertible cones made of elastic silicone rubber. Each cone transforms into four basic shapes which can be stacked and nested in a myriad of different configurations.

These small felt animals by PetitFelts won my heart.

(Thanks Kim)

Sounds of NYC

My studiomate Gabe just launched Sounds of NYC in collaboration with Breather (a service I LOVE). So simple. So lovely.

The Hello Bench

This bench concept made me laugh. For once a corporate video I actually enjoyed.

No Wifi Handkerchief

This no wifi handkerchief made me laugh.

Surfing Without Waves

I can’t help but giggle looking at this electronic surf board. No waves needed.

Embrace An Element of Surprise

The Original Mac OS Control Panel

I remember the day my dad brought home our fist Mac. I was 11. Looking back now, the first control panel was a thing of beauty. Still cracking up over the turtle and bunny in the keyboard typing speed setting.

Anyone remember the game Frogger? I plaid for hours on end.

Minecraft Photography

As a mother of a Minecraft obsessed kid these retouched images of animals made me laugh out loud. Hat tip off to Aditya Aryanto.

Watermelon Party Trick

This Watermelon trick made me laugh!

Shattered Glass Ceiling Necklace

A friend of mine gifted me this Shattered Glass Ceiling Necklace. It’s a tribute to all the women who have ever crushed it and symbolizes all the milestone breakthroughs achieved by women past, present, and future.

Love this so much!

Banana Phone

The Banana Phone made me guffaw. Who doesn’t want to talk on a banana?

Simply Turn Key

Edison electric light sign, circa 1900. This made me think of what invention in my lifetime will need a similar sign? Maybe self-driving cars?

Faucet

Mixtape

This made me laugh and think of the good old mixtape days.

The Eva Bucket Bag

Last weekend I noticed a woman sitting next to me at a cafe with this beautiful leather handbag. Couldn’t help but ask her where she got it from, a thing I was told not to do growing up in Switzerland. Good thing I live in NYC now.

Endless Loop

Citizen-Led Walking Tours

Jane’s Walk is an organization offering citizen-led walking tours in over 200 cities. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbors. I love EVERYTHING about this.

Here are upcoming walking tours in New York City.

Am I Normal?

52 cards to find out just how weird (or not) you might be. The School of Life designed this set of cards as a tool of self-assessment and reassurance.

The Early Days of The Internet

An exhibition in London gathers 64 artifacts of the early web, from the first site that allowed users to order pizza online to one of the first animated GIFs to go viral. I wish I could see this!
