One of the things I love the most is when I read a book and I simply can not put it down. Do you know this feeling? You simply can’t get enough, and the more you read, the more you are drawn into it. It could even make me skip my regular visit to the gym or miss my favorite show on TV – It’s crazy.
My friends and family know this, and every time I lay my hands on a really good book, they prepare themselves to see very little of me. But there comes a time when you actually have to do other things and face the real world, so I’ve decided to treat myself to the ever-so-charming King & Queen Chin bookmarker from Alessi.

Some things in life are just so cute that none of us are able to resist… Have a look at these gorgeous toys – Max and Lorette, made by Sibis. Both are indeed a work of art, taking us back to the good old days where toys were made of wood and left children with enough room for imagination and inspiration. Continue reading
Every winter it seems that my muscles cannot adjust to the temperature and I’m aching all over. It’s the sort of pain that won’t let go since its source is the cold. My partner decided to treat me with something special and different – all of a sudden, I felt something warm and cuddly that smelled like a very special blend of herbal tea – It was the neck pillow by Sonoma Lavender Spa Collection. As medicines don’t work, I was more than ready to try anything else. I’m so glad I did. Continue reading
Nowadays, it’s not that easy to tempt children away from their TV shows, computer games and other digital gadgets. That’s why this holiday season is the perfect time for creative family fun for both parents and children alike.
These books are full of unique holiday craft and snack ideas – whether you’re looking to get busy with glue, paper, and scissors, or maybe channel some of that holiday spirit toward the kitchen and get creative with kid-friendly projects that children will love making, and then eating – I’m sure each one will bring joy and laughter to you and the kids in your life.

It seems the allure of the gleaming silver cigarette case still remains; what was once associated with classic movie stars like Marlene Dietrich or Humphrey Bogart has made its way to the new digital world of iPhone users. Inspired from the antique cigar case, this sleek item is actually Acme Made’s new case for the iPhone – it’s a combination of class and contemporary styling, and it’s smokin’ hot (without the obvious health hazards of smoking, of course). Continue reading
Last night we went to see the new harry potter and the deathly hallows movie. I really enjoyed it – all 146 minutes of it… Some would say it’s quite long however, for me, it was pure joy. Here are a few more brilliant stocking stuffers from Harry’s wizarding world. Continue reading
Well, as far as it comes to treating your special someone, I have to admit I’m a massage addict. Let’s be honest – there’s nothing like a good massage to have your partner relaxed and spice up the atmosphere… The only pickle is that the hands get tired after a short while, as we’re not professionals. I got exactly what I was looking for when I saw the Jimmyjane Sensory Set. It has ceramic massage stone and an afterglow candle. This is the perfect set, as it contains everything we need to create the right mood. Continue reading
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, like me, then you probably cant wait to check out the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie that’s about to come out, and the new Wizarding World Amusement Park in the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, also described as the “next part of the Potter legacy”. All I know is that this holiday season will not be complete without a few awesome Christmas gifts from this magical wizard’s world. Continue reading
For us laptop buffs there’s not a single moment of relaxation as far as our laptop is concerned. We constantly worry about it, and it gets worse once we have to leave the safety of our house and go out there… Most of the time I’m afraid that whatever I do, my laptop is just not protected enough; if it’s the rain that can penetrate my bag, or other stuff in my bag that could pressure it or even scratch it. Continue reading
When it comes to reading material, fantasy would be my favorite choice; J.R.R. Tolkien, Jonathan Stroud, Philip Pullman and the inevitable George R.R. Martin, to name a few. As I was writing about the classic floor lamp by Jamie Young, I came across the term Steampunk – A sub-genre of a world where steam power is still widely used – often referring to the 19th century and Victorian era Britain.
It features anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them, incorporating fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. Today, I would like to share a few dazzling pieces of jewelry and artifacts, designed in a pseudo-Victorian mechanical steampunk style, that would transport you into the realm of fantasy and magic.
