Peninajoy.com If you like and/or are fascinated by tattoos and the stories behind each of them, then check out my sister’s new blog here. Her ‘Ink Series’ includes pretty extensive interviews about the reasons and meanings that come with each tatted image. Her first interview is with Devolo, it’s cool.
She also has an interview with Ezra Taylor, who is the face/body of ‘Daniel’ from the ‘Telesa’ novels by Lani Wendt Young – with a separate feature on his tattoo’s coming soon. Ch-ch-check it out…
Wocolate: I’m pretty obsessed withthis online store, Wocolate. Everything is just so damn cute and adorable and fun and pleasing to the eye. I was so happy to have discovered it when I did because my girl ShirlyShirl, who is the Queen of Cute, had her birthday coming up at the time. I knew I could have gotten her anything from the site and she’d have loved it. It’s the sign of a good store when you take great pleasure in buying for someone else. I couldn’t resist grabbing the butterfly push-pins for myself though. I also plan to buy a pair or two of the happy socks, and some retro straws for all the summer punch and picnics I am already planning. The owners say this about their site “We are most excited about goods that promote creativity so many of the items found here are to encourage your personality and creative endeavours.” I’m not sure how this Stache Straw & Nanoblock rabbit will help me with my creative endeavours, but they’re on the wishlist too haha.
Mighty Ape Clothing: Speaking of ShirlyShirl being the Queen of Cute, she is also the new clothing buyer for Mighty Ape, and she’s already brought in some amazing, super-kawaii items, like these Sock-It-To-Me socks, and Big Bang Theory slippers, and…drum roll please…the best onesies you’ll find in the country; PIKACHU KIGURUMI ONESIE!!!!, HELLO KITTY ONESIE!!!, Panda Onesie, Dinosaur onesie, SO MANY ONESIES!!!
Bendon online store: This is going to be a real problem for me. Bendon lingerie now have an online store. : O !! I’ve already mentally committed myself to a few Stella McCartney and Pleasure State pieces. Oh man, someone hide my credit card.
