The Magic of Silence

“My photography project called “I Found The Silence” is like a diary during my last 8 years.”

“When I am alone I may fear that I will somehow live a life of loneliness or I may discover some truths about myself that can be scary or hurtful.”

“Being alone in the silence is actually one of the healthiest moments you can have with yourself.”

Check out Martin Stranka’s amazing photography at his official site for more artwork and inspiration!

Hypnotizing Images by a Legally Blind Artist

“The World Through My Eyes” by George Redhawk who turned his loss to a wonderful gift!

“Following the loss of most of my vision, I began to explore this medium as a means to express the world through my damaged sight”

“My art is designed with the idea to challenge and in some cases, disturb the visual sense of ‘order’, very much in the same way that my vision has become a constant challenge to me.”

Hello Gold

The popular Japanese made Hello Kitty known for her adorable accessories! Shoes, lunch bags, cell phone covers.. everything you can think of. But this time, it’s something a bit more spectacular! In 2007 October 3rd the celebration for the 33rd birthday of the character, they released an ultra thin, all gold, Hello Kitty playing card! The $4900 card is made of 99.99 percent gold!

Talking about gold, I’m not sure if you guys remember this 24K dessert, created by Luxury cafe/bakery Bloomsbury in Dubai.

The retail price for this plate is $28,000! The cupcake also boasts some other high-end ingredients including organic flour and butter from the UK, premium Amedei Porcelena cocoa from Italy, and Gold Ugandan vanilla beans.

But if you have really money that you just simply want to burn (or eat).. may I bring to your attention this fabulous creation of a golden pill.

Creation of designer Ken Courtney and artist Tobias Wong who also produced some fabulous items like a pair of 24K gold Nike shoes.

These 24K pills are totally swallowable and their hefty price is $425. Thinking about picking up some? Try at their official site, whenever it becomes available..


So that’s that.. I’m not really sure what to think, but I sure do love to play around with gold myself! It’s fun and doesn’t cost a fortune! 😉

Have a fabulous Friday everybody! XO

The Life Saving Deck Of Cards

The life saving deck of cards. I mean literally!

“During World War II, the United States Playing Card Company joined forces with American and British intelligence agencies to create a very special deck of cards. This deck was specifically created to help Allied prisoners of war escape from German POW camps.”



“This deck of cards became known as the “map deck.” It was made by hiding maps of top-secret escape routes between the two paper layers that make up all modern playing cards.”
