Getting ready for 2012: Diary from Caderno Luso

10 Nov

There’s one thing that gets me really excited each new year and that’s getting a new planner/diary. I may never use it, in fact, that happens most of the time because I usually use my phone to do everything. But every year I buy a new planner that ends up being used quite rarely. It’s the same thing with diaries. Since I can remember, I always tried to keep a diary with all the exciting things that happened in my life, but it turned out that my life was not that exciting back than and when it was, I would forget to write it down. Not this time! Like every year, I’m promising to myself to keep track of my life, every day for the next year. And what better incentive than having a beautiful diary! When, a few weeks ago, my eyes crossed with these amazing diaries from Caderno Luso, I knew I had to have it. With three different color choices, which one is your favorite? A travel diary is also available. You can check their facebook page for more information.



Keybag by João Sabino

29 Sep

The story of João Sabino is truly inspirational, specially for someone who’s starting their own career path. Even before finishing he’s industrial design degree, João was sure that he wanted to do something different. After years of work, he developed the keybag, a handbag with computer keys! After being reject from several companies to fund his work, João started a blog to publicize it. It took a lot of work, but now you can find the keybag on the MoMA store and it even was the star of a Blackberry commercial!

Today when I was searching through Etsy to find my picks for this week, I came across these stunning 3 shops so instead of picking one of each, I decided to pick 4 of each shop. Just because I couldn’t choose just one!
