Melting Skittles

Totally doing this with my kids this weekend! Melting Skittles with hot water!

FOMO Survival Kit

The idea behind the FOMO Survival Kit made me chuckle. It’s a student project by Lara Défayes, a fresh Media & Interaction design graduate of ECAL in Lausanne.

(FOMO = Fear Of Missing Out)


If I was a photographer I would jump on buying the Palette Controllers for faster and more convenient photo retouching.

Seth Godin in conversation with Marie Forleo

Beautiful conversation between Seth Godin and Marie Forleo.

Mortified is an event series where adults share their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, plays, home movies, art) on stage. Hear grown men and women confront their past with tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst prom, fights with mom, life at bible camp, worst hand job, best mall job, and reasons they deserved to marry Jon Bon Jovi. So incredibly entertaining.

Definitely subscribing to their podcast.

People Watching

People watching by Scott Wayne. Oddly fascinating.

Instant Gratification

“Everything is instant gratification and the problem is too many people have applied that instant gratification to their careers and to their lives.”
— Simon Sinek

Watch the talk.

Simon Sinek at CreativeMornings/San Diego

Last Friday the remarkable Simon Sinek spoke at our CreativeMornings/San Diego chapter. The rockstar chapter that they are, they already uploaded the talk. (Mind blown!) Hear Simon speak about technology, millennials, and the importance of practicing empathy.

Simon also gave a talk titled Love Your Work at our New York chapter a few years back.

Attack of the Pod(cast) People

As someone who loves podcasts and also runs one this made me laugh. (Wish though the left out the very end. Seems odd.)

New Yorkers vs the Subway

Oh don’t we all know that feeling of JUST missing the subway train: “There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.”

Tattly on National TV

Yesterday Yng and I were invited to be on Tamron Hall’s live show over at MSNBC to talk about Tattly. What an incredible experience and honor for our company. I have become a person that talks about temporary tattoos on national tv. Someone please pinch me!

Up close humpback whale

This footage of an up close humpback whale took my breath away and almost made me drop my coffee.

The Invisible Dog | Season 8

The Invisible Dog is my work home. I am lucky to be part of this wonderful community of artists and creators. (My businesses run out of the ‘office space’ side of the building) Every year Lucien, the director of this cultural hub, runs a Kickstarter to help keep the lights on.

In a city where everything is making room for shiny new condo buildings, the Invisible Dog is a refreshing reminder on how important is to create an affordable studio space for artists.

If you, just like me, appreciate what Lucien is doing on Bergen street, help me support his Invisible Dog Kickstarter Campaign!

Young Polar Bear

Start your day out with a smile watching this young polar bear frolic in a ice-filled kiddie pool. You’re welcome.

Mega Swing

This mega swing in the sky took my breath away. WOW!

Water Sommelier

A Short Documentary About “The Water Sommelier“.

How to Email Efficiently

I am never not thinking about how to get better at email. I enjoyed this article: An etiquette update: Brevity is the highest virtue. And then also, my friend Jocelyn K. Glei’s book that just came out: Unsubscribe.

The Many Sad Fates of Mr. Toledano

Phillip Toledano was terrified of growing old. So he decided to do it as many times as possible. Fascinating.

Take The Risk of Connection

John Zinsser wants us to wake up, and really “connect”. In this eye-opener, John goes out on a limb and challenges the audience to have real connection in this world. He reshapes our understanding of what we truly risk on a day-to-day, to help us understand the need for connecting as a means for growth, and trusting others on the outskirt of separation.

Congrats to Ivan and his team of CreativeMornings/Charleston for this gem of a talk!

How Boeing Builds a 737 in Just Nine Days

This blows my mind: How Boeing Builds a 737 in Just Nine Days


As someone who really doesn’t like to clean the stove, I love the idea behind this slightly silly looking product called Frywall. It is a silicone splatter guard that fits inside the rim of any pot or pan, so spattering and sizzling food won’t spray out.

Inside the mind of a master procrastinator

I had the pleasure to see Tim Urban speak at The Nantucket Project yesterday. He spoke on artificial intelligence and it blew my mind. I looked him up and found this talk on procrastination. Such a talented and incredibly smart speaker.
