Mangoes a Go-go

November 5, 2010 § Leave a comment

As if the weather wasn’t enough to remind us that summer’s a-comin’, thank you Safeway for slapping a big specific fruit sticker on the floor of your entrance. We almost stopped in our tracks with an excited little gasp as we slowly raised our eyes to the fruits section and yes, there they were, in a big juicy mountain – it’s mango season people.

Perfecto for a snack and super sweet, we’d forgotten how good they taste and how clever you feel after you carve them in cubes and pop them out…. well, we do anyway.

Found this.

Noticed it was done four years ago.

Noticed how incredibly awesome it would be.

Does anyone know if it was made? Comment comment comment and let us know !

Gosh… is it possible to fall in love with a kitchen appliance??

We Heart Fred

October 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

Very very muchly. This smart, cutesy brand rocks our world in home and office accessories that are definitely not the norm.

Covering our desk, kitchen, home, parties, and more, this American brand is a mouth-watering array of fun. From pac-man oven gloves to ceramic bread to serve butter on, and old-school alien invader shaped ice cubes to giant ipod earplug speakers. Some may say unnecessary, we say essential.

What’s sitting on our desk right this minute? Fred’s ‘The Daily Mood’ – beaming 47 different moods complete with a net-nerd smiley (yes!) and facts, definitions, and more. It makes the rest of the office aware upfront that right now we’re contemplative, and then let’s us know on the back that meditation has been practiced for over 5000 years, a synonym for the mood is Ghandi, an antonym – Ozzy Osbourne, plus more – including an anagram: Template Con IV. Whoa.

Although one of our fantastic first thoughts when we tripped and fell into this beautiful brand was ‘oh my god Christmas presents solved !!’, it doesn’t have to stop there. Don’t feel bad rocking up to our little Fred supplier My Range on Bourke street to buy something for yourself, as you know none of your family or friends have the creative intellect to think to buy you these products.

We didn’t.

Click to it, visit Fred’s site and bask in his glory –

Or skip hop and jump to My Range at 437 Bourke St Melbourne VIC 3000 (03) 9642 8244 to view some of Fred’s products in the flesh. A list on online stockists are on Fred’s website but CAREFUL as some don’t want to share and don’t ship internationally.

a giggle

Is what this little piccy made us do, and we instantly wanted to share the giggle with the world. It was the mix of a childhood flashback and the realization that if she were set up on our street, we’d pay more than 5 cents for a much needed vent. As fellow stress-heads would concur, it’s all too often that we bottle up and push on. It’s fun to chat. If only we’d been as smart as Lucy and figured that out as early as she did.
