UNU Life

Made from a single sheet of recycled leather, Unu footwear do not use glue or stitching to keep it all together while you hit the streets. These shoes are odour and sweat resistant and pretty stylish to boot. I like these shoes as they knock the socks off those other holed rubber shoes that everyone wears. Yuk! Also featured is the Unu Wallet.

Dinosaur us.

Bangles and arm pieces for both men and women are a great accessory. I have this friend living in Cape Town and he wears this perfectly placed leather man bangle on his arm, just below the elbow. Dinosaur Designs has some great bangles for ladies as well as other interesting jewellry.

Oh it's...Nothing

Taken from the Nothing Magazine Website

What is Nothing Magazine? is a new online / email magazine that is sent in HTML format to the inboxes of hundreds of creative people all over the world every month.

Where are you based?
Nothing is created in Melbourne, Australia. At present our contributors are mainly from Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.

What do you aim for with your content?
Nothing aims to cover a broad range of contemporary creative disciplines. Every month we will feature an illustrator, graphic designer, artist, fashion designer, film-maker, writer, photographer, and sometimes just random stuff– hence the feature in issue #1 on transsexual Amanda Lepore.

We try hard to have a mix of all skills and ages, people that have been in the game for a long time, and others that are still struggling on the dole trying to make it. We do have a slight Australasian flavour, but feel it's important to sample the fruits of a variety of countries.

It could be said that the content is a bit strange, odd, and ecclectic. If it's in-your-face it's good. If it makes you squirm a bit, even better. We're not ashamed to jump on the band wagon if something is cool for the sake of being cool. Everyone wants to be cool. And we're not afraid to profile the geeky loser who is making weird shit in his garage, because being weird and geeky is good.

But overall we aim to introduce like-minded people to aesthetic culture they may have never seen, had it not been for the arrival of Nothing Magazine in their eMail.

Can I submit stuff to you?
Yes, of course. Send us a press release, or a bio, or a link to your site– or whatever! Of course if it doesn't fit with our style we won't publish it! ...don't take it personally.

Can I write for Nothing?
You sure can. Submit ideas or stories to the editor at and we'll let you know if we want it. As a hint, but not a rule, we prefer if you can source strong visual support material, and a website. We prefer photography and contemporary visual art. With music we prefer electro, rock, or acoustic: often with an arty edge.

Can I advertise in Nothing?
Even though we do not actively seek advertising, you could be the first. Contact us to discuss this.

The Cocktail Deck

A deck of cards, that are beautiful and informative, and that provide you with information on how to mix your cocktails. Illustrated by Kat MacCleod this is a must! Buy it here.

Shannon McCaskill

Ok I would wear these if I was a girl...maybe I am a NO! Shannon McCaskills vintage kimono covered earrings are here for 16 dollars US. Would be nice buttons on a cardigan too I think, with different materials for each button.

Let's twist again like we did last summer!

I love this Twist lamp by Vogt and Weizenegger. I don't like the base but I could live with it I suppose. Check it here, it kinda reminds me of a dutch girls hair or possibly a skirt...

Dark Franje

What a crazy website to visit, I spent 10 minutes chasing the correct link with my broken pinkie! I broke it playing cricket, its so sore, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. From Dark, the Franje lamp shade is really pretty. I prefer the hanging ceiling option and would have one in black, but that is just me. They have some other great products, so if you don't mind chasing the links, knock yourself out.

Acs Jewellery

Jewellery from Anne-Christine Schubert, who is based in Hamburg, is masculine and powerful. The Victory Ring is a heavy silver ring with "V" for victory on it. I feel like I should be flashing the "V" as I feel a small victory in receiving 10 000 views on SprayGlue! Thank you everyone for taking the time and moving those peepers SprayGlues way. It is much appreciated!

Monica Garcia and Herme Ciscar

Some interesting pieces that I thought might tickle your fancy on a monday morning. These are from designers Monica Garcia and Herme Ciscar...My favourite pieces of theirs are the "Zip" furniture collection featured above.

Wud-Pb-R Chair

I am a magazine nut and a chair nut and many other nuts rolled into one. So this chair is great for me, it has a perfect space for my magazine and a perfect space for my butt. I like the colour inside the storage space. Get it here.

The Gap

There is this tiny gap between two buildings in Berlin where a little bird has found its home. I love this picture and the idea to use all urban space effectively and efficiently.

Arthur Hash

Man jewelry is often a tricky question and some woman hate it. I tend to agree that some selected pieces can really enhance an outfit and Arthur Hash has got some of these in his collections. I would wear the little grenade brooch on my vintage blazers and possibly even the little silhouette men as well. He also has some interesting bracelet designs and other brooches. Ok I got this from a blog but I can't remember which one it is...if I do I will post it, sorry.

I can't keep up!

Honestly, these people are tempting me into these purchases. Kidrobot and Jamie Hewlett have done it again and produced another line of Gorillaz toys yet this time they have been coloured in 2 tones. Limited to 1000 sets these will be selling like hot cakes, and I would advise anybody remotely interested in them to check them out and spend a little cash for these very collectible figures.

Stop! Or I'll dry!

I have to have one of these one day, it is a hair dryer! Can you imagine someone walking past your house on the street and looks up to see a morning face with a gun pointed at their head? "Die evil knots!...or Are you feeling lucky punk?. It is really sick but what a great concept, I love it. Especially that blue handle. This Next.

York Mints

I found this post on NotCot and I immediately fell in love with this packaging. Besides the layout and tin I really love that blue. York Mints is owned by Hersheys and was introduced this year to the mint market. Fantastical. The black and white tin was done by Nicole Miller through a collaboration between Hersheys and Young Survival Coalition, an organization uniting young women against breast cancer.

ISO50 update

This design always has me gasping for breath. When I look at it I forget to breath. I definately aspire to this style of work and would love to know the his method to the madness. ISO50 has some new goods like this poster and record, so go check 'em out.

Precious Famine

Toni Grilo created this coffee table made entirely of luxe cutlery. He aptly named it the Precious Famine table. I wonder how this concept popped into his head, was it when he was eating or perhaps sleeping. I like the table as it looks like it would havce this sharp edge if you touched it the wrong way, kinda like a sharks skin. Although I would never stick it in my dream loft.

That was a belter!

I love these buckles, and for me buckles were kinda "so last season", but I would love to own the skull on the bees wax yellow background. Man, would I flash that thing around town. A ittle cowboy for me, but great none the less. Thanks to The Shiny Squirrel for the post.

Snowden Flood

Snowden Flood to me sounds like a count that should be next to Hampshire in England, but it is actually a lady who is a designer and textile expert. Snowden studied Fine Art initially in London before moving to New York to study her Masters in Sculpture. She has recently launched her own collection of accessories from laser cut cushions and embroideries to ceramics.

Portion of sofa anyone?

The Portion sofa, yes Im back to chairs, is a great movable piece for your living room. When you got the guys or girls around for some poker you can quickly move these bad boys around to create the perfect room setting for you evening. I am in love with the grey one. It is supreme. You can see more at naughtone.
