Good food is like gold to us. When we happened upon GoldieRox’s mash-up of these two coveted items we knew we had to share. Roxanne Rajcoomar, as she’s more formally know in the world of precious gems, made a move few people have the guts and self-awareness to call their life. After reaching the 1% in the precious jewels knowledge game, she jumped ship to feed her soul. That food just happened to be food. It’s no wonder the output from her world eating tour, getting back to her love of food, netted this Burger Locket Pendant and an equally awesome French Fry necklace. I think her old job and refound love make quite the happy meal. Judging by the package from the UK on my coffee table @MissusTasty feels the same.
More Design Stuff
Threadless ran a Ferris Bueller design contest a few weeks back and this Abe Froman Logo T-Shirt was our hands down favorite. We lagged a bit in posting this and the purchasable site is now no where to be found. Everything seemed to be on a super limited time offer. None-the-less we though you needed to know about this gem. We did find the designers website and the buy link below will take you to his Threadless entry page. Maybe we can coax them to do a reprint.
Donuts have seem to take over the food world momentarily. Perhaps its the unbridled holiday eating that’s pumped up the nostalgic hole sweet treat. Peter Pan was just named best donut shop in NYC. That’s a nod to the ways of old over the newer artisanal makers. Point is, we can’t get enough of donuts…apparently. Lines outside of Dough. Cream filling fountains at Doughnut Dolly. Even politically correct examples at Federal Donuts. It makes sense that we’d want to wear them on our feet if we could. Now, for better or worse, we can. Sukeno Doughnut Socks will provide you this thrill. Even better when you get dressed each morning it will appear the donut fairy left you a secret fresh batch. Have fun with this. What’s next Munchkin gloves. Just sayin’.
We are huge fans of Phin and Phebes ice cream. Not such big fans of this election. WTF. It’s like Mark Burnett was put in charge of running things. Ice cream has always made everything better. Nobody knows that better than these ladies. Partnering with Madewell, they took a stand and started the Phin and Phebes Pints of Positivity campaign. Show your colors. Join the movement. Wear some schwag with pride. Ohh, and don’t really vote ice cream. Please vote for one of the primary candidates we don’t need any more skewed election drama on poll day.
So, we have a thing for pizza. Not only do we love to eat that crispy crust, bubbling cheese and aromatic triple meat topping BUT, we’ll wear it on our lapel. Jen Adrion and Omar Noory make lots of perfect little, delicious items. None more satisfyingly cute than this pizza pin. Their website does tons of explaining on who they are, their Ohio studio details, what they have done (and it’s a lot) and where you can get their stuff. Aside from their creative excellence the seemingly obsessive use of ™ and ® is fantastic. As in their tagline, WE MAKE THINGS™. The line YOU LOVE THINGS™. Or, as in this mantra, These Are Things®. Whether truly trademarked or registered, the inside joke or official-ness is welcomed. Plus, they have cats that are dope based on their Insta.
