One sure-fire way to impress for Sunday Brunch is to make mini-cakes. Or anything mini, really. You can get away with making cakelets or mini-cakes with Williams-Sonoma’s Gift Cakelet Pan. It’s basically a mold you use to form little cakes. Your friends don’t have to know — just tell them you’ve got super skilled hands. Or trained kitchen dwarves who specialize in making small cakes. Although, that might turn off some of your guests. Better to tell them you’re super skilled and mention nothing about the cakelet pan. More »
There’s nothing kawaii about Pocky. Skinny, dark-chocolate covered bread sticks. Big deal. Popteen’s Decopocky on the other hand…that’s a whole different kind of Pocky.

Hence the name, ‘Decopocky.’ More »

The advantage of this design is that it has no handle, which leaves the hands free– allowing your child to fold it up and hide it as soon as they reach school before any of their classmates get a chance to see how stupid they look.
You know, as fascinated as I am by UFOs, I would never go as far as to put my kid in one. I think I’d make a good mother.
In a fit of madness, designer Helen Red Richards managed to produce one of the strangest mergings of technology and fashion I’ve ever seen. Combining the style and glam of the 1970s with old school GameBoys, she created several pairs of these funky shoes for a Nintendo campaign in 2001, which became a popular trend among the Japanese youth for awhile– or so they claim.

I really do not know where jujulee finds time run an Etsy shop being a stay-at-home mom with four children, but she does. She makes really unique and cute silhouette rings for sale at reasonable prices that start under $10. They range in many different styles and are carved from acrylic.

At 7” high x 4” wide and 3 1/2 pounds, rest assured, this product is not a choking hazard– though that probably wouldn’t stop you from waking up and trying to eat it in the middle of the night. More »
