For some of us a visual reminder is the only reminder; if it’s not in front of you it’s not likely to get done. The Work/Life Reminder Magnets from Susy Jack are the perfect solution.

This stylish yacht concept by Vuk Dragovic features a fold-out swimming pool with solid sides, floors and seating so you can relax right in the waters you are traveling through without the risk of taking a free swim with sharks or other unknown predators.
A product so conveniently called "Subtle Butt". Labelled as a "disposable gas neutralizer".
Seriously?!!!!....I cannot stop laughing...
Here's the product description that comes along with it:
"Sometimes you just con’t control a gassy stomach...and what may happen as a result. But relax—the pressure’s off when you’re protected with these antimicrobial pads. Just stick to your underwear (even thongs) and go about your day. If you make a slip, don’t worry—the odor is neutralized by the activated carbon layer, and you’re spared the embarrassment. Great for travel, office or anywhere you’re in close quarters!"
Buy them here. (seriously?!!!)

Belgian designer Quentin de Coster has completed a new project called Indiscipline. Porcelain that looks so realistically flexible!
From the designer:
Indiscipline is a series of porcelain objects which results from the materialization of questions about the boundaries between design and art. Each and everyone unique but originating from the same mould, these ceramics are not functionality-predefined. Deliberately deformed while unmoulding and fortuitous when cooking, this production questions about the usefulness of the object, the influence of a style of production and the limits of the industry. Not unlike personality, these porcelains are the meeting of a predefined mould, voluntary action and…chance.
Re_Vinyl is a collection of wall clocks made from laser cut vinyl records. You get to choose from twenty designs available, as well as your choice of the clock's hand, either minimal or vintage.
