Pop in Palm Springs
BFF (the Californian one) has assured me that I, and my POD bods, would love the new experiential store at the Culinary Institute of America. If you're heading to the West coast then I'd be popping in for an eye-spy. CIA, St Helena, Napa Valley, CA.
Designed to sell
Cynthia Rowley has put the ooooh into poo with her designer diapers (known as nappies down here in the Antipodes). Her collaboration with Pampers ranges from pink and frilly to designer denim. Surely this will start a trend and has got to push those Disney-like bottoms along the shelf to make way for more pret-a-porter style stuff for the little stink pots? I spotted them because I spotted these bling bandages just a moment before. Rowley has teamed up with Band-Aid to create a limited edition tin of sticky plasters. That paper cut pain won't be quite so stingy if you cover it with sequins, lace or a big ol'diamond Band-Aid. A dollar from the sale of each tin goes to Design Ignites Change. Via The LA Times.
