For anyone who has to take different types of vitamins daily, this is a time and space saver, especially if you’re out and about or on a short trip. Sabi‘s Vitality line features freshly designed pill organizers that comes in different forms from carafe to pocket sized organizers.

The Fuuvi Bee is the one and only 8mm digital camera from Japan that is ready to roll and shoot with MicroSD/SDHC memory card support. The toy size body (at a mere 39g) is designed to hang on your wrist, but the ability and function are able to produce amazing retro artworks. Bee is easy to control with a convenient charging solution; the built-in battery will last up to 100 minutes while you record from full charge. This little high-tech gadget can communicate with both PC and MAC. At under ¥5000, it is also very affordable.


Monica Gonzales created these one of a kind illustrated brooches that are not only girly but oh so very romantic.

The new light and flouncy new arrivals at Anthropologie conjures up images of lazy days by the beach watching clouds go by…


Oturakast by Rianne Koens consist of separate drawers with legs that fold out, turning drawers into stools.


Now here’s one product that might actually change my mind about keeping fish as pets. The NoClean Desktop Aquariums is the fastest, easiest, mess-free and fun way to have an aquarium with its self-cleaning, eco-friendly (no electricity or filters) set up and only takes about 60-seconds to work.

Due to gravity and the laws of physics, aquarium waste naturally works its way through the rocks to be trapped at the bottom of the aquarium in a patent-pending reservoir and plumbing system. Every couple of days, simply pour clean water into the aquarium to activiate the self-cleaning system. This flushes out waste trapped in the reservoir while performing a partial water change. As this is a Kickstarter project, they need your support before this product can become a reality. Check out the link for more details.




The Microplane Easy Prep Meat Tenderizer uses its extraordinarily sharp, etched blades to break down and soften the fibers of the toughest, yet often the most flavourful, cuts of meat. Made from stainless steel wheel, it is available in Black/Grey and Black/Red.

What do you do when you run out of room? Build upwards, of course! That’s what designer Seung-Yong Song did and manages to kill 2 birds with 1 stone with his out-of-the-box-thinking. His creations may look a bit awkward but they are definitely functional, especially for apartment folks.

The first time I saw this, I was just blown away at how gorgeous these little jars look. Vancouver based designer Cindy Ng has totally revamped the packaging for Killarney Wood’s jams and with such delicious sounding flavours like Honey Jam, Red Velvet Jam, Strawberry Jam, Apple Cinnamon Jam and Lemon Jam, how can you go wrong?

Do you remember my post on Homemade is Best for Ikea campaign back in 2010? Well, the very talented Carl Kleiner has once again teamed up with Ikea but this time they have asked him to (together with stylist Evelina Kleiner) put together and capture ways to spend the budget you get when you buy a kitchen at Ikea.
