Coolest Ice Pack EVER (& VERY functional)

Stainless Steel Ice Pack

Stainless Steel Ice Pack

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.

Mustaches in Paris :)

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.

Built for Lunch


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
