Kalorik (one of Europe's first manufacturers of small electric appliances) began producing electric toasters in Belgium in the 1930s. Today, they're apparently producing appliances from the mother fucking future! I just stumbled upon these awesome-looking home goods on Amazon, and was all "zomg what are these kitchen space pods!?"

Baby Blastoff's styles and colors are carefully chosen by Emily to work for any gender, while still being super-fun and hip. Emily's mission is to create an alternative to the "pink is for girls, blue is for boys" paradigm in children's clothing. As a life-long tomboy who was forced into girly pink-y princess clothing growing up, I raise my glass of whiskey to you, Emily. Fight the good fight!
I'm currently looking to replace my worn-out-but-still-awesome-but-also-kinda-stinky living room rug, and while searching for an area rug replacement, I've stumbled upon some of the coolest rugs I've ever seen. I've found goth rugs, rugs made from rags, rugs for nerds, punk rock rugs, a rug with a time travel theme, and even something called a Pop Art Jazz Rug.
We recently had a lot of discussion about engagement rings over on Offbeat Bride. They are one of those cultural phenomenons that is just super intriguing. Adrianne from our longtime sponsor, Turtle Love, also finds it interesting and is on a mission to create thoughtful dialogue about the industry and perspectives from all kinds of people and communities (especially those not immersed in wedding planning).
Remember when we wondered what the next style and home decor trend would be? Portlandia nailed it to the freaking wall with "put a bird on it." But, after doing a little online shopping on Modcloth, it's seems to me that foxes are the new birds.
What does the fox say? It says "buy me."
I'm sipping on The Devotea's limited edition Raspberry Black Tea as I type. (OMG, obsessed with this one!) Because guess what turned up on my doorstep again? Another box full o' delicious teas! If you'd like to get surprise teas in your mail, then you're going to be really excited about this new Devotea development: Introducing the Devotea's USA Tea of the Month Club!
Much like with my last bathroom theme post, I was inspired by a shower curtain to create this inspiration board. From there, I scoured the web for the cutest forest animals fit for a bathroom. Let these porcupines, bears, foxes, and birdies help you get ready every morning… like a mother fucking Disney princess!
