Let's jump right into the new week with Ontwerpduo's latest Loena lattern! Beautiful new product being exhibited in Dutch Design Week along with their other designs. They have captured the magic of light in this lamp that stays lighted for up to 8 hours after all other lights have been turned off. Great dim lighting for a night light. Truly magical!

With a focus on unique and handmade pieces, the store gives a sense of treasure hunting where you'll never expect to find items you can add to your own collection. Definitely a spot worth dropping by if you are in the vicinity. Continue reading

After our last batch of egg press cards flew off the shelf ( nice cards are hard to come by nowadays so eggpress is our go-to) we ordered a whole new batch, including cards for Halloween and these social preparedness kits. A great gift for the stationery lover, the set comes with 4 thank you cards and 4 blank cards, which they say " equals 8 opportunities to make someone's day". We couldn't agree more. Another brand new in store is &Klevering, bringing us their beautiful dainty tea light candle holders. They come in a range of designs and can also be used as cups or even to put small plants, we put some cactuses in them and tweeted a picture. Another item from their collection are the animal wall hooks, perfect for the kids room or by the door to hang coats and bags. Continue reading

Like the name suggests, Not. A. Sponge is actually so much more than a sponge. Made of the cognac vegetable, it is an all natural means to cleanse, wash and exfoliate your face and body. At first touch, it is firm but once water hits the surface, Not.A.Sponge becomes so soft and gentle and glides on the surface of your skin without tugging or being too rough on your skin.
