My love for inanimate objects keeps growing–the latest item I am smitten with is this Stainless Steel Ice Pack. It’s slim enough (about the size of an iphone) to fit into our Stainless Steel Lunch Containers (which by the way are airtight and very cool looking and compact), but also super helpful on many levels. As a mom, I am now always in need of ice packs to keep little Cocobeans’ bottles and food cold while we are out & about, so am thrilled to find these. Stainless Steel Ice Pack- $15.

Yo! Check out my nephew Charlie in front of the Eiffel Tower with one of our crazy mustaches! LOVE IT!! Charlie and Sammy live in Spain with their parents and travel to cool places like Paris for vacation. We were lucky to spend some time with them this summer in DC when they were stateside visiting family for a few weeks. I got to hear lots of fun stories about how our shop’s products are a part of their European lives. My sister-in-law Katrina orders lots of mustaches & Prank Kits to give as birthday party gifts, but I also heard how these funny items also made their way into the classroom too- good stuff Spanish Cantrell’s!! A Moustache for All Seasons- $6.
Tags: Built Lunch Bag
I’ve had my eye on these Built Lunch Bags for a while now and was thrilled to learn that Annie has started selling them in the store and online. It’s hard to find a lunch bag that an adult can use that is both fun and functional and doesn’t make them look like a little kid when they tote it around on the subway. Better yet, this bag is insulated, expandable, and machine washable. Seems like you can’t go wrong! Built Lunch Bag – $28.00

Today would have been the great Julia Child’s 100th birthday. In honor of that great lady, we’re bringing back the popular Julia Child Prayer Candles! They are handmade here in New York, and are currently available for preorder to be shipped at the end of the month.
Julia was well known for her sense of humor, so we think she would’ve been amused by this auto-tune treatment. Bon Appetit!!

WOAH- 50,000 pounds of compressed energy in a super ball? Yessiree. I am not exactly sure what that means but it’s been getting people excited and as the back of the ball says, “It’s the most fantastic ball ever created by science!” It bounces up to 75 feet! and part of the proceeds go to help the Wham-O Has Heart Foundation– DOUBLE WHAM-O!!! Super Bouncy Ball- $2.50.

We are all set for Back to School at the shop (check out lots of awesome goodies for headed back to school/work/whatever here) but we have all spent countless hours debating one important question: which planner should we buy. I tried to go all digital, but it’s just not working for me people– I need to see my crazy handwriting to realize something important is happening tmrw at 2. Jess gravitated to Knock Knock’s Academic Planner, above- in our fav Kelly green (it comes with a plastic sleeve in there which would be great for biz cards, receipts, even extra cash). I am leaning more towards the Draw Your Tomorrow Planner that we talked about earlier. And then there is also this cool TOMORROW White Planner that is sleek and cool and just the right size for my everyday bag. All of them are thin and portable, but also are spiral bound which my friend Jill pointed out will be good for laying flat on my desk…. Lots of choices! And many great options…. Academic Planner- $16.
