FieldCandy Space Tent on Super Sale!


So Carl Jung was all about watching for synchronicity. Ya know, meaningful coincidences.

Just this morning I saw Thee Cutest tent in all of existence while skimming through tumblr.

“A tent that looks like outer space? Stop everything, I know what my summer needs!” My brain was already busy creating scenarios to prove that I did in fact need this piece of stunning camping gear.

A few hours later I got an email letting featuring The Tent of Spacey Beauty… ON SALE! Commence happy dance!

Think Geek has deliciously discounted this spacious tent as part of their super summer sale. In their words that “means it’s time to SLASH PRICES IN THE FACE!” Oh, that does have a ring to it.

What do you think of FieldCandy’s take on the classic tent? Do they inspire you to get outside and make some spacey fun?

Fingerstache In Your Face!

fingerstache tattoos

Good Idea: Grow a righteous mustache.
Better Idea: Get a fingerstache tattoo.
Best Idea: Get a temporary fingerstache tattoo.

There are few accessories as unexpected as a moustache tattoo on your finger. It’s like waving a hipster’s magic wand and instantaneously having a cute opening line. (And some faux whiskers, too.) Perfect for girls who dig irony or guys with more scruff than stache’. Kids love playing with them, too. Those whippersnappers.

We’re actually quite enamored with the moustache. Our Co-Owner Sean is the (sole) owner of an enviable handlebar mustache.

Maybe you could have guessed?

Water Trampolines

12-Foot Water Trampoline!
Having your very own trampoline in your front or backyard guarantees that you are one of the cool kids on the block. Surround that trampoline with a lake, and suddenly you’re a baller.

This epic water trampoline is also Guaranteed for Life! So if you and your friends get a little crazy and pop it, you get a replacement. Awesome.

The entire trampoline’s diameter is 12 feet, but the durable nylon jumping surface is a safe 6 feet in diameter. The trampoline is made of the same heavy duty materials used in life rafts and tow-ables and includes a detachable ladder and anchor.

Chill Pill: You Need One (and I’ll make them for you!)

Because sometimes, seriously, you should just take a chill pill.

Now I want to suggest something that might sound impossible

This ice cube tray produces actual Chill Pills. Like real, working, effective “calm your crazy self down” chill pills.

How? Simple. The placebo effect.

“Placebo effects can arise not only from a conscious belief in a drug but also from subconscious associations between recovery and the experience of being treated—from the pinch of a shot to a doctor’s white coat. Such subliminal conditioning can control bodily processes of which we are unaware, such as immune responses and the release of hormones.”
“Placebo Effect: A Cure in the Mind.” Scientific American February 2009.

“Ha ha, these ice cubes are cute. Chill pill. I get it. It’s even printed on the pill with the dosage amount just like a real pill…” Unh huh.

Pack your cooler or fill your guests cups with these cubes and 5 minutes later everyone will be maxin’ and relaxin’.

Did these chill pill ice cubes work for you? Tell your story in the comments below!

Positively Buddahful Clothing with Victorian Flair

Buddahful ClothingI was searching for Steampunk Clothing on the Google and came across this jaunty Victorian era inspired clothing store Buddahful.

I especially liked their style of comfy/flow-ey yoga type clothes that have a Steampunk flair to them. I’m also jonesin’ for their Gevurah Canvas Coat in the men’s section. Preferably without the leather embellishments. I am diggin’ the vintage military look with removable hood and brass embellishments though. It would make a good scooter-ing jacket I’m sure.

I’d also go for some ninja hoodies and yoga pants for those colder days in the park while we practice our flow toys.

Buddahful is a grass roots company based in the western part of North America that has a focus on the community and delivering a positive message. And they’ve made my ‘Rad Indie Companies to help fill my New Wardrobe with Awesome Clothes’ list, as they should yours. What you don’t got a list like that. Well then … start it right now with!

For the Curious Shopper

the curiosity shoppe online store

Our favorite stores are often difficult to describe. Their offerings change quickly, and the selection can be as varied as the shoppers they attract. Talking Paintings one day, and an Eames House of Cards the next? Sounds good to us!

Enter San Francisco based The Curiosity Shoppe. Their tagline is “Crafts, Kits and Curious for the Creatively Inclined“, but we dare anybody to walk away without an item that tickles her fancy. Have you seen the USB drive that doubles as a comb? How about the hand printed tea towels featuring a pirate-inspired tall ship?

The store is owned and operated by Lauren & Derek who opened the Shoppe for one simple reason: they are “obsessed with beautiful things.” And what sorts of beautiful things might you find while browsing their hand picked wares? “Whether it’s a favorite art book, a vintage find, a carefully hand-crafted piece of jewelry or a one-of-a-kind painting, we guarantee everything you’ll find in the Shoppe is special.”

Like anything truly magical, their stock changes frequently, enticing you to come back for visit after visit. If you’re in San Francisco, you can drop by their store on Valencia Street, or head to their 24/7 web shop here. For extra fun, visit their blog Smarts & Crafts and say hello.
