Jigglers

22372.jpgNo i did not just post jello… its Lush’s new Soap! With the same consistency as jello, the new line of Shower Jellies by Lush look like too much fun to pass up. (and this one is Ba Da Bing Ba Da Boom, and has the same scents as my favorite Sex Bomb)…

Freeze Them, Chill Them, Jiggle Them. In The Shower No One Can Hear You Scream. Bada Bing Bada Boom Shower Jelly is the ultimate in cold showers. Its sensual scents (the same essential oils as Sex Bomb) are blended with red wine and an infusion of rose petals, soothing lavender and stimulating thyme herb. Say, for example, it’s summer and you’re with someone you find very, very attractive but you’re just too hot and bothered to do anything about it, what you really need is a cold shower to cool you down but not put you off entirely. Grab the Bada Bing from the freezer, clean your body with its cool lather and inhale the calming (aphrodisiac) jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage perfumes. That should work just nicely.

How much fun does that sound?

Belted

salzwedel.pngI love this belt. Los Angeles based artist/illustrator, Brooks Salzwedel’s belts are making their way around town (you can find them at Fred Segal)… and i love the layering of imagery within the molded resin, creating that spacious creepy air to them… and a great mix of black and white with a hint of colors…

Torino Torch

o.jpgTorino 2006 Olympics

The style concept behind the design is innovative: it is a modern reinterpretation of the traditional torch made of wood; the flame envelopes the body of the torch, instead of coming out of a hole on top, as has been the case in the past. An advanced technological instrument, the Torch was designed according to specific criteria and prerequisites; it is 770 mm high, has a diameter of 105 mm and weighs 1.850 kg. It cannot be re-lit and it must not go out even in bad weather conditions such as rain, snow and wind. The flame of each torch, which burns for 15 minutes, must not be higher than 10 centimetres. As for the materials used, the outside shell is made of aluminium; the inside fittings are of steel, copper and techno-polymers, and for the surface finish, a special paint is used that is resistant to high temperatures.

That quote comes from the Olympic’s site. Sweet that it will be in Italy, would love to make it over there for that.

Scrub your sole

ET9382.jpgIf you’re a flip flop girl, you know your feet take a beating regularly and it can be such a pain to scrub them all the time with hardcore devices that look like mini cheese graters… but this suction cup happy “Sole Scrubber” from Earth Therapeutics, is a nice daily massage for your feet while your shower… as they say

Take a cue from Asian culture and make foot scrubbing an end of the day ritual with this convenient mat. Suction cups secure the foot-shaped mat to the tub or shower floor, while plastic fibers cleanse and massage. With a squirt of our Tea Tree Oil Foot Wash, squeaky-clean feet are just a shuffle away.

Check it out, i found it at Whole Foods, you will feel better.

Burn Out

burnout.pngEver feel Burnt Out? How about Blown Up? So i am so panicked at the moment, this had to be posted. Here’s how it went down… little 5’4” me, balancing on a barstool in the bathroom hallway of my new apt, trying out a light socket… screw in. turn on. nothing. touch it. KAPOW*CRASH*eep!

It blew up. smells like fire. burnt my hair a bit. but no fire. no fuse blown. so technically everything is ok… except my nerves.

But now i’m left with the imagery you see there… and it reminds me of what its like to have great ideas (light bulbs dinging above your head)… and then the opposite… to have burnt out… or gone out with a shortlived BANG.

Save the Endangered

050826_online_species.jpg DON’T DO IT. Like this bag i mean, or even consider buying it. I saw this image in the National Geographic site, and was just so horrified i had to post it.

During a one-week period in January the IFWA discovered unlawful offerings such as a gorilla on sale for $8,100 (U.S.) and chimps dressed as dolls for $60,000 (U.S.) each. The conservation nonprofit says the findings represent only a small fraction of the total online trade, because the investigation only looked at sales of live primates and products made from elephants, tortoise shells, reptiles, and wild cats.

It’s just insane, although probably not so surprising, that this is how the blackmarket trade of endangered species is evolving… and that purse, just makes me want to cry. Read it.

Pls Code Responsibly

What more can i say? Car driving into water. “Please Code Responsibly” on back. Only flaw, that color. If it wasn’t on that color i’d have ordered it already. (yellow and i, don’t mix so well.) A List Apart

BAD DESIGN KILLS!

baddesign1.pngbaddesign2.png
You know it’s true. Unfortunately not everyone is as astute as you. Take a look at these folks, their shirt (who can’t love an undo key command for the back of a shirt)… and their propaganda… while i try to have passionate causes, this just topped my list. Thinking its time to make a sticker for the car… enjoy Bad Design Kills

SD with a USB Flip

ultra2-sd-plus-512mb-open-angle.jpgSD card, where you can fold it and stick it into any USB port. This innovative design is such a problem solver… taking the need for card readers or cables out of the equation, making use of already used useless space… efficient, multifunctional, brilliant. Read more here.

p.s. this would also beat any of the tiniest USB keys in portability and size…

FISHING!

zoom.gifI miss fishing with my dad as a kid, travelling the world, watching life float by as eggshell shards drift down into the abyss below… His birthday is coming up too, and this shirt just reminded me of all of that. Good times. When things were simple, unlike this shirt… which leaves the poor fisherman in quite the predicament… but that is truly what the hunt for the biggest, next fish always is, isn’t it? It’s all about the unattainable.

For more, check out the Artist’s other work as well… nice illustration portfolio of Andy Weitzel.
