Ah, RUGenius, so sad you’ve moved yet again to another far away place… out in Oxford… but at least you can serve as another foreign liason design wonders hunter. Ok so this is definitely a “what the…?” post. And i’m in a nostalgic rambly sort of mood… loving DIDcot. A wee town in England… cute crest, horrid websites. NOTcot travellers can now go find the town who’s name is the archnemisis of mine. Awwwww. Didcot.
Fun design. “Ting’s ‘Sling’ is woven using end of line seatbelt fabric. Soon to be available for personal commissions in a choice of bright shades including hot pink, orange, camel, turquoise, chocolate or chic black. For a stunning alternative the hammock can be woven into a colourful or black and white check. Available in two widths: 80cm wide x 2m long forone person or 1.5m wide x 2m long for two people - great for those that want to cuddle up and swing on the sling.”
Yay. just stuck it in the ps2. that’s all for now. you know you want it. more to come later. but just excited for the moment.
This lightweight pearly potion casts an ethereal aura over skin to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative. Use it to give cheeks a glistening gleam. Make browbones subtly beam. Glistening Mica shines a luminous light on facial features while taking focus away from fine lines and flaws. Rosemary soothes. Sage smoothes. And the uplifting aroma of sparkling citrus makes you feel radiant inside and out.
It’s playfully uplifting, from the outside in, and vice versa =) and on that note, to all readers who noticed the lag the last two weeks in posts, and my attempt to bribe you with new finds that make me happy. My apologies. Life kicked in full gear. In good ways and bad… but i’m back. And its nice to post again.
The Art Home line of home cleaning products by the Canadian Company Fruits & Passion is eco friendly and gorgeously packaged… Their line includes Ecological Home Cleaners, Fabric Softeners, Detergents, Cleansing Hand Gels, Room and Fabric Deodorizers, Glass Cleaner, and more. Definitely worth looking into further when it comes to eco-friendly aesthetically pleasing products.
It reminds me of a yoga mat. when being carried and folded anyhow. But it seems like a nice alternative to those tiny flimsier bags you crunch up into your main purse, and whip out… and “poof” a nice bag for all your groceries? It looks more sturdy and i like the over the shoulder carrying style… groceries can get heavy! But i’m all for the recycled bag usage, especially when walking a few blocks with groceries (be it for excercise or necessity)
First things first, this site is worth going to simply for the loader and how it transitions into the menu. Moving along, i simply adore the soaps and the perfection of spheres in nice dishes, in square boxes, making such beautiful gifts. Not to mention the scents available in all of their products… Italian Blood Orange line brings me back… and French Lavender, and Egyptian Chamomille, Himalayan Larch… Must go find some tomorrow, bathroom needs a makeover.
I am in love with this logo, and tempted to get the panties/tank with that image on it… But personal obsessions aside… this was one well marketed/graphically clean site and brand worth looking at… for the ladies (see this barber blog entry for women down under)… and a great gift for the guys. I particularly like the Covert Carry-on for random boy gift, coming in a great bag by Triple Five Soul, and an assortment of great looking products, perfect for that secret weekend runaway you don’t give him a chance to prepare for before takeoff. As they say “Maintenance matters”, and who can stand a guy who doesn’t at least care a little about maintance when no one else is looking?
Read up on Berlin-based brush company Die Imaginare Manufaktur (The Imaginary Factory)… fell for their playful tongue in cheek designer brushes, particularly this “Nail Brush”. These projects range over the last few years, and are dreamt up variations of how one can push the boundaries of what a brush is. The London Design Museum store carries quite a few of these designs, be sure to also check out the Jaws brush and the Shoe brushes (which naturally come in a red heel and a black mens dress shoe).
Fun designs in the form of flap-overs, coin purses, and laptop sleeves… playful vibrant geometric looks… and fun interface. Snap!
Shu Uemura’s Eyelash Curler has been THE curler everyone’s needed to own the last few years… Commemorating the 15th Anniversary of this iconic product is the new limited edition 24K Gold and Black Nickel hand crafted editions. For the girl that has it all, a gold eyelash curler… best of the best, for only 22$.
Cool Feet Airbrush Catwalk Heels is a foot cooling spray that instantly revives and refreshes sore tired feet with a fine mist of ache-relieving ingredients like cooling menthol to reduce temperature and temporarily relieve foot aches and pains; natural extracts of papaya for revitalization; bamboo to restore natural softness to the skin; chamomile to soothe; and the refreshing scent of peppermint to invigorate senses. ModelCo Tip: Keep a can of Cool Feet in your purse for a blast of icy instant relief throughout the day - when you need it most.
My feet want this. I can’t imagine anyone who has danced the night away, or run around working in heels all day who wouldn’t want this… assuming it works as well as it says?
The skincare market evolves with such leaps of innovation in packaging and product it never ceases to amaze me. Remember when Sephora first started selling the insanely expensive well packaged powders you mix with water and drink? (Borba) Well those “wellness from the inside out” type of products have created 25$ packs of gummies now!
BORBA’s Skin Balance Confections contain a revolutionary, cultivated bio-vitamin complex that helps the skin regenerate its natural support system, as they help remove toxins and improve skin clarity.
Bizarre and fascinating evolution in what you can sell to people… or how you can stay healthy/young/beautiful.
