5 Things I like Monday

I've seen this bike shelf a few times on the internet recently, and although i don't actually ever use my bike, i really like the idea, and the simplicity of it.

I'm not sure why, but i really like this study. I'd like a desk looking out of a window, even if the view is just next door's roof.

Luisa Bruni's 'plink!' ring collection. Each ring shows a different stage of a fallen water drop.

Williams British Handmade

Today I like this collection of unusual suitcases by Williams British Handmade:


I started back at college this week after a long summer off and the early mornings have definitely taken their toll, I'm completely knackered. I do 'Jewellery and Applied Arts' at Manchester College, and I have started a new blog as part of my current project, so if you're interested, you can take a look at it here.

My skin has gone super crazy with eczema at the moment, I went to the doctors last week because my hands had reacted badly to something and she gave me about 5 different creams, which I have been applying morning and night but for some reason, the rest of my skin has got worse. I've had eczema on and off for as long as I can remember and I don't know what it is that sets it off, I don't know if I might be allergic to one of the creams, or if I’ve eaten something I shouldn't have, or if it's just the fact that I’m tired and the weather is getting colder. Anywayyy I have an appointment with a specialist so I’m really hoping they can tell me what to avoid.

I really don't know why I’ve written about that, but it does have some vauge relevance to this article about how to improve your mood with food. Basically;

Stressed: chocolate
Sluggish: spinach
Cranky: apple and peanut butter
Anxious: salmon
Angry: green tea
Sad: cereal and milk
PMS: egg salad sandwich

Learn something new everyday with these fun illustrations.
Did you know that an albatross can sleep whilst flying?

I like this door mat from Graham & Green.

I absolutely love Milla's Daydream photographs. So cute.

Awesome desk by Gesa Hansen.

Poladroid is a brilliant tool for making your photos look like polaroids, it makes you wait for them to develop too which just adds to the fun!

Fur message boards.

Genius idea. Fur message boards.

"an easy, intuitive, and fun way to express ideas, leave messages and play,
just by simply dragging your finger trough the fur you leave a trail, a drawing..."

USB Typewriter!

Ohhhh my lord, look at this! A USB typwriter!!!

I own a small cream typewriter that I keep next to my bed so i can type things when I suddenly think of something I need not to forget when I'm snoozing, but that pails into insignificance when I think that I could actually do all my typing on this beautiful blue machine.

I'm almost tempted to spend a chunk of my student loan on this (£330, not cheap for what is essentially a computer keyboard) but I don't even use a computer, I'm a laptop person. Failllll.
