While checking out Sub-Studio's latest post for us below on TODA... i couldn't help but notice this incredible Corn Stripper they have designed for Oxo! It actually strips the kernels off the cob and into a container that even helps you measure how much you have... and easy grips to hold on to as well.

Rebecca Minkoff's (of Morning After Bag fame) latest for Fall is the Matinee Bag. And in the oh so trendy grey leather, it will surely be one of the more coveted bags this season. Although i haven't been hands on with one of these yet, they've sent over many a picture... and the most interesting details look like the suede flaps which can add that extra flare of color/texture when up, and hide the two secret side pockets when down (more pics below!). Equally cute is her description of the bag:
Meeting him at noon? Perfect. The Matinee bag is ideal for holding all of your work day essentials as well as your must have products. The Matinee has dual pockets on each side and is accented with a reversible suede pullback, these discrete zipper pockets open up allowing room for all those unmentionables. When has your lunch break been sexier.
See more pictures below of the model shots, purse angles/colors, and even a few sneak peeks of the launch party display of the fall collection... the display of bags delicately balanced on wood is quite interesting.
AR+COOK (Art & Cook) has some incredible designer gadgets for your culinary side. Left to right - citrus reamer, masher, twirl whisk, egg whisk, jet whisk, pizza roller... and that is only a mild black and white selection from their collection... they have quite the assortment of bright colors as well. Apparently Art & Cooks true claim to fame (beyond award winning design) is their Airgonomic handles - "While air is in the handle, zinc is in the core. A strong, durable material that is resistant to stains and scratching, zinc provides a long, maintenance-free life for more than 60 years. The weight of this metal allows the tools to work more efficiently, reducing the need for users to exert excessive force when completing the cooking tasks at hand." ~ diagram of the Airgonomic handles below.
Ok, on odd fixations for the night, i remembered an old OLD post on travel chopsticks (dan actually even bought them)... and they were silly and complex? As shade elaine and i wonder... they aren't really that much lighter, or take up that much less space... why do you need them? where are you bringing them? Well... i googled travel chopsticks and we were the first hit... so i browsed more, and apparently the travel chopstick options have come a long way! So below are 6 awesome options i've found to meet your travel chopstick needs. Trust me, they are quite impressive design objects... esp for such a simple instrument.
Erica Weiner has brilliant dark and beautiful jewelry... and since we last wrote about her her site has had some serious redesigning going on thanks to Jenny Kwok, and i love the aged paper, dusty old apothecary feel with creepy crawlies everywhere... not to mention some of the great new pieces. Can you believe that is a bronze cast of a Ruby Throated Hummingbird's Skull? And she has many great pairings of bird+bird whistles, birds+planes, etc. Snap shot of the site below...
We at NOTCOT love our tech and gadgets. We love Batman and James Bond because they're more or less just regular guys (however fictional... sigh) with awesome stuff. So what if they lived in, say, the 1880s? Perhaps they'd have this tiny pocket-watch camera (although it's actually a lady's watch... so maybe it's one for Batgirl?). For some reason this just totally amuses me to no end. I keep picturing two spies hanging out, and one has this super techy tiny digital camera with satellite link up or something, and the other one busts out this antique thing. But at the same time, I gotta say this looks beautiful and intriguing. I'm sure someone spent a lot of time making it, and someone spent a lot of money to acquire it... it recently sold at auction for £18,000!Via Boing Boing.
Funky Oysters - Camilla - Iridescent Gray, Bun Pearls, 3 Woven Strands, Short Length. No Good For Me has a discount coupon (code: FUNKYSMR) for 20% off until 06.15.07 - and i'm tempted, they've got some really fun pieces.
The iPod nanos always felt like a bar of soap to me, a wet bar of soap, the type that was ready to launch out of your hand. Vakaadoo's Soft Feel changes that to have that great slightly grippy texture, and you barely notice the case on it. (Unless you want to - by picking contrasting colors, etc.) Been playing with this for the last week or so, and actually have found that its brilliant feature i've fallen for is that i can attach my keys, etc to it, so while working out i don't need to worry about various loose pieces. And the quality of the piece is really nice, almost surprising how seamlessly the front and back pieces slide together, and hold so well! More images below of what other goodies come packaged in with the case.
Granted i'm not a huge sneaker girl (although i do love my share of shoes)... i DO love packaging, and while i didn't know what to think when i first got emailed by Jason Markk... i'm quite impressed with their gorgeous packaging. Premium sneaker cleaner - in a quality mini sneaker box, with playful labeling and what resembles paint splatter and koi. And within the box... 8 oz. Premium Sneaker Solution and Sneaker Cleaning Brush. Gorgeous - see my hands on pics below - nice attention to detail.
Spring has sprung, or so it feels all up and down California these days. And with spring comes spring fashion... in all its bright happy colors, fun prints, and face it... people just tend to be in better moods around the world this time of year... Gardenia Carry-All at Anthropologie.
On interesting trends ~ the bird/nature inspired trend doesn't seem to be fading anytime soon, and an interesting emerging trend are the use of feathers (to go with the many bird silhouettes we've been seeing the last man months?)... Turtle Dove Feather Headband at Free People. It adds an interesting texture to the look, so natural, yet so controlled, and a nice contrast in the black and white. They also have two peacock feather variations.
