Love trainers. I always feel the need to dress down in order to dress up. That hip looking trainer from Nike SB, is another beautiful model of its Trainerendor. It now arrives in a fabulous red-wine “Merlot” palette. Check out the mesh accompanied by those really awesome nubuck uppers! Not bad at all! This is truly a beauty. I pretty much adore sneakers with nice white soles. They frame the base very nicely. At a very decent price of 90euros, one must not miss out this shoe at all Nike SB outlets.

Popsicles!

These popsicles are actually pretty impressive. Love the geometric designs. These are certainly not your average ice cream popsicles. Based in Berlin, Manu Kumar, an architect together with design Stefan Gendl have worked together to produce these lovely popsicles. I really love the polygonal shapes and the symmetric angles. Not forgetting it has a really cute stick with graphic on it. Nuna Popsicles.

Block me!

I know right. Sometimes we block people whom we hate or we filter friends whom we dont want them to see or find out what we are doing. So the ‘block’ function on Facebook then becomes extremely useful. I love how Facebook interprets that and translate it into an interesting fashion. In fact, it is the way they make tutorials more interesting with the help of a humorous script. Not only are these youtube videos short and interesting, it fuses the daily elements and scenarios we face. Check out the video which features a couple facing a little fight and how the block function can come in handy. OR NOT.

Beep!

Ah, its Christmas again. We shall be expecting the proliferation of creative works from brands in this festive season. Check out this funny commercial from Oral B. I have to say I had such a good laugh at this ad. Sometimes, you really don’t need an excellent script. All you probably need is the daily humour brought to life. Brilliant stuff from Publicis UK.

Christmas biscuits

I see this technique used very often. Immersing the audience in an unforgettable experience and pulling them out to reality. Most often seen in Wieden + Kennedy’s commercials, McVitie’s ‘Christmas Choir’ by Grey showcases the family enjoying these delightful biscuits akin to them surrounded by lovely pets. Sweet TV commercial.

Your mood swings

Some might call this a gimmick but I think its a really cool item to have. Known as a Smart Ring, this accessory tracks your mood and feelings. It then converts and displays it, allowing your to further understand your current state of mind and emotions. This is a powerful depiction of your current mood and might just help to get you more aware through adjustments. Started by Finnish company Moodmetric, it intends to read your emotions and transmit the information to your personal smartphone.


What it does is to tap on a biometric sensor that would feel andsense your current feelings and immediately updates your phone through Bluetooth. So you get a better picture of what are your mood graphs in a day. Powerful mechanism to let you understand yourself better and make the necessary adjustments.“It tracks your emotion levels and reactions. It measures the small changes in your skin which come from the autonomous nervous system reactions which can tell you about your emotional state”.
