If you happen to be a person who does the Tree Thing at the Holidays, it’s time to get that shit in order. I was in the Urban Outfitters on Fifth Avenue near 44th Street the other day and they had all kinds of fun ornaments to make a festive tree, such as this Pink Cupcake ornament, which you can see is quite sparkly. I like it.
Here are a bunch of them all hanging out together. “Ornament des Fêtes” translates to “Holiday Ornament”!
These Pink Cupcake Ornaments sell for $8.00 each! I am sure that most Urban Outfitters have them in stock!
Are you as excited as I am for the premier of the final episodes of Breaking Bad? As much as I am dying to see what happens next on the Best Show Ever in the Universe of All Time, I am truly sad that the series will be ending after these eight episodes air. Sigh. There is however a way to remember Breaking Bad always and forever, and that is with a set of awesome refrigerator magnets, which I saw on sale for $7 or 8 bucks at Urban Outfitters. You’re welcome. And don’t forget to tune into A&E on August 11th!
I’m always on the look out for Do It Yourself, Contemporary Design ideas for the home, and this empty Paint Can Chandelier, spotted hanging in Urban Outfitters at the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway, really caught my eye. You can see from the close-up photo below that this lighting fixture could probably be made with some inexpensive cables and a little home improvement electrical know-how Googled from the Interwebs.
Please note that this lamp is a fixture in the store and not an item for sale!
Hey Oldsters, who out there remembers way back when recorded music was first made “portable” through SONY’s invention of the Walkman cassette player? Let me repeat that: Walkman. Cassette. Player. Who knows what any of those words even mean, right? It was so long ago, and you probably weren’t even born yet.
But despite its relegation to the status of antique music listening device, the Walkman’s impressive girth has advantages over micro-thin iPod thingies in that, if you were to transform its shape into a container for alcohol, it would hold enough to get you sloshed.
Enter, Drinkman, the Walkman Shaped Hip-Flask, here to solve all kinds of needs. Created by UK design firm Mustard, (purveyors of fine pop culture-inspired gift items), Drinkman is the ideal hip-flask for those who love a bit of old school cool. Perfect for festivals and nights out, the reusable device holds 5 ounces (150ml) of your favorite boozy concoction.
Drinkman sells for just $12.95 and is available at This Link.
