New gadgets roll out so fast that it’s hard to remember a life where I couldn’t bake up a half dozen mini cupcakes in 5 minutes.
And someday, your robot nanny will sit your child on it’s knee and explain that we used ovens for cooking before lasers became the norm. Ahhh, progress.
Here are a few of the electronic-bakery highlights;

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?

Looking for a fool-proof “become her favorite new toy” gift? These uniquely handmade dolls from BlaBlah seem to have magic powers over kids. If you’ve got a little girl 6 months or older, she will love these dolls. They’re hand knit from super soft, 100% cotton in South America using Fair Trade practices. No hard parts and parents love that they’re machine washable.
Sharing snippets of juicy reviews is my new favorite thing… because people are finally leaving really helpful reviews!
Hey, who spilled common sense all over the Interwebs?
I have to say when I first saw these cats, I didn’t get it. They seemed a little simplistic and overpriced. The only thing that convinced me to get them were the scores of positive reviews. They were right! Little ones love these toys. They are used as pillows by both of my girls nightly. And they wash up great in the washer and dryer (even though it says air dry, I dry on the lowest level and they come out perfect).
The colors are very vibrant and wherever we go we get compliments on him, that’s right, he goes everywhere with us! He was a great addition to our family and I am sure he will be a treasured toy in the years to come.
My daughter loves her and has slept with her every night since she got her. I think we have a doll that is going to last a very long time. I would definitely buy another one as a gift.
From the moment [he] came out of the box it has been true love. He has been dragged, thrown, hugged, drooled on, snoozed on, given Cheerio’s and sips of milk, even spit up on and has held up wonderfully.
My little girl absolutely loves this doll! She sleeps with it everynight and takes it with her everywhere she can.

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.

There you are, on a gorgeous sunny day, just trying to relax and soak up some rays… when sand starts itching it’s way onto your towel. Kids and dogs running by, or just moving around to get comfortable seems to add more sand into the mix. I guess you just have to deal with it, right?
Nope! The military’s got you covered. Kind of.
This technological marvel called the Sandless Beach Mat was indeed developed by the military for landing a chopper and not blowing sand every which way. Now you can use this technology to spend an awesome day at the beach, connecting with nature, while staying comfy, too.
This sandless towel also eliminates dirt, dust, and water from its surface, so you have a perpetually clean outdoor space. Perfect for camping or watching outdoor concerts.
What, you need features? Well it’s also strong enough to resist abrasions from outdoor furniture or pets, the towel will remain flat, and it never absorbs moisture, so it can’t grow mold or mildew. Available in two sizes, and two color choices.
So get out there and enjoy the rest of the summer – and all your other outdoor activities – with a sand-free smile

** SALE: Use coupon code genesis15 to save 15% **
Just over a year ago, I talked about the Genesis Water Ionizer in the post Do You Know They Sell an Actual Fountain of Youth?. I shared the personal story of my in-laws, who introduced me to ionized water:
All they did was add in the alkaline water instead of drinking bottled water/filtered tap water. With that ONE change, they began to lose weight without effort, had more energy and slept deeper, they ‘felt hydrated for the first time ever’, and the water was even ‘much easier to drink’.
I’ve got good news. Now it’s your turn to try.
The once a year water ionizer sale is ON.
Save 15% on the Genesis Platinum water ionizer. Use coupon code “genesis15″.
If you have questions – and I mean any questions at all – about ionized water, email me at .
I have been a solid gold fan of my water ionizer for over a year. Ask me anything, because I wanna help you feel healthy and vibrant, too

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!

Wildflowers are notorious for “blooming where they’re planted”. Seed bombs take that idea and crank it to 11. They transform any gray urban landscape into a slice of reclaimed green space.
They come in 6 growing regions for the US; west coast, midwest, east coast, pacific northwest, southwest and southeast. Just pick the right region, throw, and your gardening is done.
Seed bombs are awesome for both gardening enthusiasts and anyone who can throw! Even kids can chuck these over a fence and watch the magic happen. Chuck a seed bomb in spring, summer, or early fall, and see what blooms.

If you look at history, now is a flippin’ sweet time to be alive. Need proof?
We have problems like “I want to constantly witness the beauty and mystery of a butterfly, but without harming it“. Beats the pants off of “I hope we chopped enough wood to make it through the winter”, doesn’t it?
Like an adorable confirmation from above, these electronic butterflies remind you how good life is. Simple, fascinating, beautiful. This is exactly the kind of gift I give to my Type A friends. When you tend to “live in your head”, reconnecting with simple pleasures is key.
What about kids? Check out the video below to see how enraptured they are playing with their butterfly.
Hmm, can you think of anyone else who might enjoy these little marvels?
