I’m dreaming my bathroom will look like this one day.

I also love this Poltrona chair with cover. The red one (on the right) is a collaboration with Camper in Paris.

And my favourite has to be this Green Rooster rocking chair.

Available from Hayon Studio.

Series of photographs by Meg Wachter entitled Dumped, where she douses friends with liquidy food like breakfast cereals, coffee, apple sauce….you get the idea. I think they are very candid.

After days of deliberation (albeit alone), I’ve finally decided to post this. I still can’t believe it cost a whooping $1.2 bil for this revamp. The bottles don’t look too bad but the logo left me speechless….and not in a good way. Apparently the rationale for the new logo reads:

“The new logo is a white band in the middle of Pepsi’s circle that loosely forms a series of smiles: A smile will characterize brand Pepsi, while a grin is used for Diet Pepsi and a laugh is used for Pepsi Max.” Whaat…???

The new bottles will debut end of this year or early next. Love it or hate it? Your pick.


I’ve been following photographer Thomas Herbrich‘s work for a while now and the end result never fail to amaze me. Best of all, he actually shares how the outcome was achieved.

Just when I thought there were more style options to shoe protection during rainy days, I learned via NotCot that these heels are only prototypes. Currently they only have shields for ballet pumps on their site and they offer more than just protection from the rain. They have insulation to keep feet warm as well as extra traction for slippery surfaces. Nice!

L Studio is a new online channel by Lexus (yes, the luxury car company). Although still in its beta mode, you can catch Web Therapy, a new web series starring Lisa Kudrow, as a self-absorbed psychotherapist named Fiona Wallice, who offers a 3 minute, real time sessions online with her patients.

It was also co-written and co-produced by Kudrow.

The site also has other series like Sex and the City producer Ann B Harris’ Puppy Love starring Famke Janssen but it is more of an insider’s look into the relationships between people and their dogs.

A few days ago I posted about Supermarket. DaWanda is another online marketplace for all things handmade, much like Etsy. Currently listing of items is free and the listing period is unlimited. It’s sites like this that gives small time crafters like me hope.

This is one very cool installation from British graffiti artist, Banksy. The animatronics are superb and somehow, I wish I was back in NY again. Click on the image below to link to the video at Notcot (unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t allow me to embed the video here) and this link to the website.
