Warm and cozy blankets are a “must have” this wintery season – and full proof gift giving mastery no matter who you buy them for. And these Norwegian cozies are so special! Modern in design and pattern, but traditional in its material and construction.
I couldn’t decide which one I wanted more… you pick!
See these (The Power Collection and Gullfuglen) and more from Funkleshop.

Light and finely crafted (best looking plywood I’ve ever seen), these wooden pieces are more than just eyewear. They are ‘spectacles’!
I spotted them while shopping in and around the famed Viktualienmarkt in Munich. For more colours, shapes and wood species… click here. I’m partial to these, Terra Mata in Nut, but might be persuaded towards the Wenge finish too! Decisions, decisions…
And if you’re wanting even more of this look…check out this earlier post on wooden timepieces, er, watches!

Autumn is here!
That means all those neon and/or pastel nail colours need to be retired. These are my picks from Scotch Naturals:
- Stone Fence
- Kilt Lifter
- Flying Scotsman
- Seething Jealousy
Ok… I confess. It’s not just about these colours. I’m loving everything else about this nail polish:
- Paraben Free
- Toxin and Fragrance Free
- Cruelty Free…. and the list goes on!

I love tea towels. Yes. I do.
I think my admiration started when I was a kid, helping my mom bake a cake roll (the kind with the jam filling). She’d use her best tea towel to lay the cake slab and then roll it up tight once the slab was covered with the filling. I thought it was rather magical.
Enormous Champion has several delightful patterns like this one, among other items. All their products are environmentally friendly.

Reinventing the wheel… in watches.
AB Aeterno has introduced a new line of arm candy made out of wood. Reed sandalwood to be exact. There’s a warmth to the timepiece that I like. Warm to the touch as well.
I think I want it. How about you?

Here’s just a glimpse of what I want… so many options to pick from: floor lamps to wall sconces to ceiling fixtures. Not to mention multiple heads, articulating arms BUT always that black, matte finish.
Seriously… Serge Mouille light fixtures are my ‘always want’!

My new watch. It’s oversized. It’s vintage-esque (my word, ha ha). And I think I’m loving it! Someone close to me (you know who you are… heh hem) thinks it’s too large. He says it looks like I’m using HIS watch. But as I explained, ‘Bigger is better! And that’s actually the point!’ ;)
So what do you think? Love it? Or leave it?
Technically, I’m keeping it either way because I’m pretty sure I’m still going to be loving it for some time. :)

Retailing doesn’t have to be complicated. Display your product so that it speaks for itself. Aesop is known for their clinical branding (as well as their skin, hair and body products) and they’ve taken it right through into their stores. For me, it’s more than just clean. It’s clear. It’s transcendent. It’s pure.
And I absolutely want that sink!
