We’ve always admired Forever 21 for their super fast to market, on trend, dirt cheap clothing and accessories. This line of craveable Food Wrist Watches calls for a time out. We, of course, would opt for the center image so that it’s always pizza time o’clock in our dough filled, tomato sauce world. Although, donut time is also not a bad alarm to wake too. Enough of the time jokes. Go ahead and scarf these up online but it’s much more fun to go into a store and try them all on, trust us.
More Design Stuff
More finds from Renegade. IN COMPANY PAPER is a husband + wife duo from Astoria. We love Queens and love their designs. We’re also dead suckers for food trends turned into wearable. Add some gold and Missus Tasty goes manic. This avocado toast pin screamed birthday gift for my vegetarian mother-in-law, all but the egg. It’s the perfect brunch accessory. Every foodie should have this at the ready for that last minute Sunday Funday text.
If I handed you a steak scented sponge you’d probably think I was pining for a role in True Blood. That’s why Mission Grove Cardamom Coffee Soap makes sure their blend of scents makes for the perfect clean, fresh, olfactory delight instead of a vampire induced, midnight frenzy. Mission Grove makes other scents but this South Indian and caffeine combination scratches two of our continual itches, love of the subcontinent and our habitual morning cup of comfort.
The Renegade-avocado hits keep on coming. This time from LA designer, Hadron Epoch. We love their stationary and we LOVE their notebooks even more. Although we don’t really love the way they articulated their evolution. “Our goal is to create a sense of lifestyle for everyday adventurers who are inspired to look outside of their comfort zone for the best experiences in life.” We’re huge experience people. Adventure is our middle name. Comfort zones are for wimps, we agree. But, we yearned for a little more substance in those words. It did come in their craft so maybe we should just shut up and write in these beautifully bound, paper perfect, journals.
We love the Good Paper people. Gearing up to treat mom is sometimes one of the trickiest tasks of the year. It has to be good, funny, special, sentimental, not too much BUT just enough. Start out with this Thanks for Raisin Us card and you’re on the right track. Of course you need at least one sibling for it to make sense. After that maybe you go with a north African dinner reservation or a beach vacation for the big gift. There’s a theme her people. Go with it.
