As you can tell by a lot of my posts, I have a thing for vinyl toys in fun human-like predicaments. This set by Andrew Lee just cracks me up. If anything it is inspiring me to start up my vinyl toy collection again and dust off my camera. And it shows me that people have some really creative imaginations out there! You can see Andrew's… Continue
Let's say you're coming into LA and you need a place to stay. You want something simple and sexy, functional but fun, a place that has free wi-fi but a kick ass pool. You'd love to stay the W in Westwood or the London in West Hollywood or the Huntley in Santa Monica but you'd rather save your money so you can do a little Christmas shopping at the Grove. So what do you… Continue
Paper+Cup is a stationary store that was started by a few old friends in New York. What I love most about their products is that they're simple yet elegant. Their silhouette labels, cards and journals have that modern vintage feel to them. Sam and I ordered up this line for our rehearsal dinner gifts and we couldn't have been more happy. So, if you're looking for… Continue
Sure there isn't anything like picking out a shiny new vehicle and racing it around the neighborhood but what if you want to customize your ride? BMW has partnered with Microsoft to bring you the Product Navigator - a futuristic touchscreen that lets you pick a BMW, modify colors and content, and even save the finished project to a thumb drive to take home with you.
I wasn't that impressed with the video except when they dropped a block on it and it changed… Continue
It's great when you read about a graphic designer who's able to turn his art creations into something people can enjoy ever day. As a hobby, Glenn Jones, a graphic designer and illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand, decided to submit some of his designs to Threadless a few years ago and as they took off he then went one step further and… Continue
I was talking to Sam today and I saying, "You know, it would be fun to have some sort of trademark. Maybe I'll buy some funky tights." And then, I saw these. As you can tell by our MMM chandelier, I'm into that kind of design but I'm just not sure if I'd wear it on my leg.
So I'm asking for your help. Too cool or "Alice, you'll be looking like a… Continue
I am love with these lamps that cast these amazing these shadows on ceilings and walls. Created by Peter Buning, of Germany, the SHA-DO-lamps aim is to illuminate the environment through individual shadow pantomimes. "The creation of the light is as important to the lamp as the design is. The lamps can be adapted to their environment because of their flexible… Continue
Love this visualization of how the effects of global warming would make New York be submerged underwater. Way to go HSBC by Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai ad agency in India for taking an aerial photo of New York and then putting it at the bottom of a pool. Nothing better than scaring the shit out of you to get your attention!…
I'm suffering from a mad case of toy envy after seeing Doc18's Flickr photos. Not only does he have an awesome collection of vinyl and stuffed animals toys, he has a badass way of displaying them in his… Continue
I know to some of you all it's just a water bottle but it's one that made me do a double take today at Whole Foods. Evian has partnered with designer Christian Lacroix to create this beautifully designed glass water bottle with white snowflakes. Sure it's crazy expensive at $13.95 but you got to give to Evian for making water drop dead gorgeous.… Continue

Call me a kid but I just love this packaging. A sustainable ice cream cup with packaging that turns into a toy, this was designed by JunFei for Nestle. It's basically a sorbet ice cream cup made for 4 flavors: banana, strawberry, mint, mango. Comes with a… Continue
Well, it really isn't right. What was God thinking..making women this beautiful? Yes, 25 year old Miranda Kerr, the lovely lady who's dating our dashing pirate Orlando Bloom, was not only lucky enough to get the cutest dimples but also a damn straight up rockin body. With that lovely Australian accent, Miranda sounds as sweet as she looks sexy.
I'm filing this under super cool. So the guys at Sony weren't clever enough to make this up but at least we can all enjoy it for what it is. I love it when they take a pretty simple concept and marry it with the outside surroundings. Throw in a little fantasy or absurdity and you have a kick-ass campaign. Too bad it's fake. Someone call the Sony guys and tell them to hire… Continue
