Net Neutrality Pins

Net Neutrality Pins

Show your support for a free and open internet by buying Tumblr’s Net Neutrality Pin and putting small holes in your shirt. You’ll be making a stand against internet slow lanes and look good doing it. Well done, Dan Blackman!

(I already have one and love it!)

It’s A Month

This giant calendar called It’s A Month made me laugh! Totally backing this Kickstarter. Well done, Dave!

Lost GoPro

I just had chills when my studiomate Bas told me the story of the above video. What you see is the footage of his GoPro that he lost 1.5 years ago while filming this Like Knows Like video.

The GoPro fell off Kelsey’s surfboard and waited over a year on the ocean floor to be discovered by a young scuba diver called Carlo Fezzi. Carlo posted a still from the movie on Instagram, someone recognized the guy and tagged him. And just like that, the internet came to the rescue!

I am simply amazed that the camera held up all this time. Quite a testament to their quality. The GoPro marketing team should be all over this story!

I love the internet so much.

The Dancing Traffic Light

As a NYC mom, concerned about my kids’ street safety, I love the dancing traffic light concept. And how surprising that this is an idea by smart, the car company.

Thinking of a Master Plan

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly thinking about my master plan. So, this tote, by Paper Jam Press is absolutely perfect for me. (Also available: Everyday I’m Hustling.)

What started with a few posters has turned into a small empire; wall decals, temporary tattoos and now bags. Well done, Arianna!

My kids are obsessed with oogi, a rubber figure toy by Swiss company moluk. Watch the above video, you’ll understand why.

VW Bus Keychain and Garage

This VW Bus Keychain that comes with its wall-mounted garage made me giggle. Good find, BB, and yes, bummer they’re currently only available in Europe.

How to remove a temporary tattoo…

Did you ever wonder how to best remove a Tattly Temporary Tattoo? Nic and Ace created the above video to show just that. Leave it to my team to turn something as seemingly boring as an instructional video into something seriously fun. They are the best!

This little family is currently spending a week in the Northfork, enjoying the last week before school starts again. I’ve reconnected with my younger self and looked up some papier-mâché projects to do with my 8 year old, Ella. Here are some of my favorite finds:
