For My Inspiration Board

I need to buy these.

These adorable little hangers will keep holes out of important things on my inspiration board. If only I would’ve found these sooner…

Double- Bowl

I’m all for simplicity, and though having a studio apartment in NYC doesn’t allow me to buy things that aren’t EXTREMELY useful, I can definitely appreciate how useful this clever bowl is. It has a special compartment that hides waste, from pistachio shells or olive pits, from view. If only they made an extra large one for buffalo wings.

Better Late than Never


Americans tend to be innovative (or in some cases claim they are), but this is far from new.  Allure’s Daily Beauty Reporter  mentioned delivery  beauty treatments  as if they were a completely unique and ingenious concept. Coming from the Dominican Republic, I beg to differ. You can have anything done at home: blowouts, manicures, pedicures and massages. Though Allure mentions this as a perfect service for elderly women that can’t get themselves to a beautiful salon, in Santo Domingo it’s used by women of all ages.  In most cases it’s not more expensive than visiting your local beauty parlor and much more comfortable.

I’m a fan of this, and I know a lot of my friends are too. (Just ask my friend Moli)

Hopefully, the US will catch on to this pretty soon, but knowing US beauty prices it’s bound to be quite expensive.

Free Hugs

The The Anonymous Hugging Wall  is an installation by Keetra Dean Dixon that can be found in London. Sadly, the webpage doesn’t say where I can find it or how long it’s up for. 

I’m sure you can’t help but smile when you walk by.

We’ve all seen this idea before, mostly in futuristic films that show how the world would be in the year 2235, but it’s kind of creepy seeing it come to life. The SmellIt is a new device that plays smells along with your dvd player. Here is how it works (as described on their webpage):

SMELLIT works just like your printer, but instead of ink cartridges, it works with smell cartridges. As your DVD player reads the video and sound information from your favourite DVD disc, SMELLIT processes the same DVD, but the ”smell CARD” decodes all the smell information from 10 to 20 seconds* ahead of the actual scene so the odours have time to reach the spectators. After decoding the smell information, the cartridge vaporizes a very small amount off concentrated “smell gel”, and the central fan distributes equally the smell in all directions. It can be loaded with 118 cartridges, each one with a different concentrated “smell gel”. All the cartridges can be easily changed and last 3 times more than a regular ink cartridge.

Imagine the surprises that could come when surfing channels. This could give a whole new meaning to Giada DiLorenti’s show. It sounds good in theory, but I’d definitely have to limit my Food Network activity if I don’t want to gain 5,000 pounds. 

As a person I think it’s a clever idea, but a bit weird. If it catches on I’ll be one of the late adopters.

As a future advertiser I think it’s an incredible idea and opens a whole new world of possibilities. Who wouldn’t order pizza at 11pm when you smell it whole lazily sitting on your couch? I wonder who’s going to be the first to take advantage of it. I’m looking forward to the Glade ads.

Too Much

This post is dedicated to things that reflect my recent attitude: too much.

Too much infleunza talk, too much work, too much planning, too much food, too much stress…


Thriller Headphones. They work. Imagine walking around with them. It’s just too Much


Bacone : It has a cone made out of bacon, scarmbled eggs, gravy, and a biscuit. eww. It’s too much.

adobe pillosAdobe Pillows: Are they crazy? After spending more than 18 hours a day for 5 days on any of these programs I dream about them. Why would I want to dream on them? It’s too much
