Help! It’s been a few months now and I still can’t get my mind off these pretty pastel clutch bags from Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2014 ready-to-wear collection. I especially love the ombre ones!

From top: The Petal clutch bag, in embossed dégradé  leather, shown in White/Pale Grape, White/Light Mint, White/Bright Lemon. . The Petal in sheer vinyl with flowers, shown in Pale Lilac, Pale Cameo Pink and Light Turquoise. $1250, comes with a slim shoulder strap.


I made the mistake of clicking the “Recommended Products” link…. and now I need the cashmere knit cardigan, double angora and wool shell coat and an English lace trench coat, in pale lavender please.

ostrich pillow by studio banana things

 The Ostrich Pillow by Kawamura Ganjavian for Studio Banana Things is an oddly shaped pillow which you wear like a helmet,  designed to allow you to “create a little private space within a public one”. The pillow has a hole at the front for your nose and mouth and two opening at the sides for when you want to sleep at your desk, as pictured below.

This is the perfect companion for a 15 minute power nap at work.

Now this is the way to sleep in airports — in your own cushioned comfort, looking like a mutant cousin of the Teletubbies.

I can’t sleep without pillows covering my both eyes and ears (because of the monsters in my room, don’t judge me) so I would totally buy this, if not for the $99 price tag. ;(
