Baby Carrier That Provides Privacy And Support

Baby Carrier That Provides Privacy And Support

When Rachel nursed baby Emma on national television, I cringed! Personally, I feel nursing your baby is the most private thing to be done; you don’t need spectators! Some experts believe that feed times are the ultimate bonding sessions, considering post-natal blues etc. More often than not, ladies who only breast-feed and don’t believe in using the bottle, always face a problem in public places. The Comfy Care Carrier is the fine line that not only doubles up as a carrier but also features the subtle motive of offering privacy during feed times.

Put Your Insulin on My Hip

Put Your Insulin on My Hip

When I clip you clip we clip. The “Tolea” is an insulin pump for those folks with Type-1 diabetes. “Utilizing a flexible elastomer embedded with artificial setae, the nano-scale growths found on gecko’s feet which allow them to stick to virtually any surface.” What does that mean? It’s a little sticky-bump that sits on your side that you insert disposable insulin cartridges into to deliver the insulin into your body constantly and without pain. Ease? With diabetes?

Toys for Senior Dogs, Old Soul Review

Toys for Senior Dogs, Old Soul Review

If you’ve ever perused the toy aisle of a pet store, the options are overwhelming. “One for every occasion” is an understatement. It occurred to me most toys were geared towards puppies and young adults. The seniors, much like their human counterparts, totally get shafted. I have a 9 y.o. dog which by canine standards is more than mature. My search led me to a series of dog toys called Old Soul by a cool little company called Planet Dog.

I wish I could pick one up at the local hardware store. I’m not an “outdoors” person nor do I have a green thumb. I can’t ever recall needing to dig a ditch but I suspect whenever the time comes, I’ll be kicking myself for not having the Divi Shovel. Two kinds of shovels, a hoe (natch!) and a broom –  all in a neatly packed mobile set. The entire surface is begging for Hello Kitty decals, ironic bumper stickers, and gold stars. I’m sold!

Creative Tea Drinking

Creative Tea Drinking

Tea drinking and brewing is an art form often patronized on YD. Adding to our growing list is this delightful Turtle Tea Kettle. The kettle doesn’t discriminate against loose-leaf, teabags and compressed-tea, tea drinkers’ coz its comfy enough brewing any of these sorts. The added advantage of a separate glass container for the loose tealeaves makes sure you don’t get any debris while sipping your drink. If the creative-cook gets the better of you; heck you can even use the kettle to brew up some exotic hot beverage and treat yourself!

No Switch’n This Lamp!

No Switch’n This Lamp!

Besides their whacky sense of poetry, designer duo Qian and Yiying’s perceptions in ID tickle me no end! For example this JOININ’ Lamp; now it does what lamps are supposed to do…Light Up; but the duo jazz up the design by doing away with the ever-essential switch. They have included eight pairs of electrical contacts instead. So toss in some coins (or fancy metal pins) and see which of those 8 LEDs light up! Quirky ID fun!

Honda Hovercar

Honda Hovercar

This was supposed to be the future! That’s what I heard. I was always told that in the future, we’d have flying cars. I’d say what happened to that, but I know what happened to that: John Mahieddine happened to that. The “Honda Fuzo” is a Vertical Take-Off and Landing concept. The Fuzo is a futuristic fantasy with four high-powered turbines for high-speed horizontal flight and Iron-Man-like handling. Cruzin in at 350 mph, two joystick control for speed, trust, and steering. Vertical spaceways for ultra-infinite possibilities.

Ferrari Joins London

Ferrari Joins London

Perhaps you’ve been? London is a home to many, many fine shops, quite a few of them dedicated to one single brand. Lots of them are the kind of brand that has a couple shops and that’s it! Ferrari. What do you think of when you think of this brand? Exclusivity? The patented red + yellow? Crazy conceptual works? Better wear sunglasses in here.
