Give Yourself Permission To Discover Your Genius

I thoroughly enjoyed Erin Kim’s heartfelt talk at the most recent CreativeMornings/Audience Takes The Stage event in NYC, hosted at the beautiful 501 Union.

Be The Last To Speak

Book Lunch Box

A lunch box that looks like a book. YES!

Molekule Air Purifier

This is the firs time I’d consider letting a Air Purifier in my home. Question for those of you that own an air purifier: Do you sense a difference?

“Céline and Colin are representative of a massive shift that is happening in which companies are no longer measuring success solely by how much money they can make, but also by the scope of their positive human impact.”

FREITAG Travel Bag

Whenever I think I can’t possibly love FREITAG more than I already do, they come out with a new, innovative bag, like Zeppelin, their first inflatable travel bag on wheels. The fact that it folds down when not in use gets my two thumbs up! And, of course, that each one of them is unique, as they are made out of recycled truck tarp. So much YES!

Haunted by Data

“In a world where everything is tracked and kept forever, like the world we’re for some reason building, you become hostage to the worst thing you’ve ever done.

Whoever controls that data has power over you, whether or not they exercise it. And yet we treat this data with the utmost carelessness, as if it held no power at all.”

Tabagotchi

Tabagotchi is a Tamagotchi-inspired chrome extension designed to help you declutter your browser and eliminate tab anxiety. The fewer tabs you have open, the happier and healthier your “Tabagotchi” will be! For every tab you have open, your Tabagotchi loses 4 HP, making it angrier and sicker.

Made me laugh!

Abandoned States

Watch places in idyllic 1960s postcards transform into scenes of abandonment.

Your Face on Your Suitcase

You can now cover your luggage with a giant photo of yourself. Because nothing says “hands off my stuff” like an oversized portrait of yourself soaring down the conveyor belt. This nearly made me snort my coffee out my nose, laughing.

Michelle Rondelli Cotton Blanket

The cotton blankets by Michelle Rondelli make me swoon.

Frank Chimero on Community

“Community is critical for creative folks because creating the work is so inwardly focused. … Participating in a community becomes a way to let some sympathetic people into your process so you don’t go crazy, while still protecting the work in its unfinished and fragile state. I see community as people working parallel to one another, sharing information and resources freely with each other. This is how useful information spreads around and how creative people find new opportunities.”
– Frank Chimero
