In yesterday’s post, we went big with wallpaper size mounting paper; today, we’ll go the opposite way and feature this Deco Rush pen from Japan. It’s small, looks like a regular correction pen but it’s what comes out of it that’s impressive (to me, at least). Use it for decorating your books, cards to family and friends or even for scrapbooking. Choose from many designs and the cartridge is replaceable. I want!


Remember my post on coloured paper masking tape a while ago? These wallpaper idea is similar but on a much larger scale. Just let your imagination go wild!

3D shopping bag from Milk Design Shop. It’s light, durable, water resistant and comes with genuine leather handles.

Chocolates with Attitude by Bessermachen for Brandhouse consists of an outer box with 12 different small tin boxes with chocolates inside and a 50s style pin-up calendar girl. See the whole process here.

Love the packaging, love the organic ingredients even more! Plant‘s line of organic bodywash are lightly scented with organic essential oils chosen to help you rev up, calm down, get happy whenever you want. This set of 4 even include the Be My Baby organic babywash, so your little one can enjoy an all-natural, organic (and unscented) washup too.

The all-natural, honeylike gels is made of only eight simple ingredients, and all are completely free of parabens, SLS, petroleum, silicones and harsh, mysterious chemicals.

Beater for Normann Copenhagen is a whisk that is sculpturesque, space-saving and functional all at the same time.It can be folded together, saving space in the kitchen drawer or on the wall. Beater is inspired by a pack of straws and is gathered in the middle using a ring that functions as both an opening andclosing mechanism and a hanging fixture. The whisk comes in eight colours: white, grey, light blue, nude, lavender, pink, mint and dark blue.


New collaboration between Phillipe Starck, Peugeot and Mayor of Bordeaux has resulted in this very cool looking bike. In November 2011, the City of Bordeaux in France began a special consultation with its citizens. In an exercise that could easily have created a Homer mobile, participants were asked to make suggestions on what they would like to see included in the design of a new town bike. Over 300 citizens shared their ideas, which designer Philippe Starck has now used as the inspiration for what has been provisionally called the City Pibal Streamer – an eye-catching concept where riders can opt to sit and pedal like on a traditional bike, or stand on the platform and use like a scooter.

The Half Pint Garden is a herb growing kit cleverly wrapped in a milk carton-like package. The kit includes a square, white ceramic container, peat pellets and three packs of herb seeds (basil, mint and thyme). Simply remove package, add water to the peat pellets and sow the seeds. Place on a window sill and watch them grow! How very adorable!

Pinch by Jaineel Shah is a new and innovative way to hang your clothes without over stretching the neckline. Just “pinch” the head of the hanger, which allows the arms to bend down, which can then comfortably slides inside your T-shirt.

You Smell is a classy, sassy, luxurious new brand of bath and body products that combines humour with good quality products. I just love how one side of the packaging says “You Smell” and the other says “Like a lemon”, “Divine” or “Like Sweet Seduction”.
