10 cool things

After spending (way too much time) online, I can’t possibly share EVERY cool thing I see. (I wish!) So, each month I’ll bring you my Favorite 10 Cool Things. It might be links, products, tutorials, or more. You never know what I’ll come up with.

10 cool things - you're going to love! (January Edition)

January is always a great time for NEW things that are just breaking into the market. Here are 10 cool things you may not have seen (but probably need in your life).

1. 10 cool things favorite: YOOBI – FUN & COLORFUL OFFICE SUPPLIES

10 cool things yoobi

One day I answered my door to find a box from Yoobi waiting for me. I’m sure the neighborhood heard my squeal of delight when I saw what was inside. These are some of the coolest, brightest, most fun school and office supplies I’ve seen in a long time. Modern colors, fun designs, super affordable prices, AND your purchase helps our schools!

Yoobi means “one for you, one for me.” For every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. It’s that simple!

10 cool things zen

I have a diffuser in my office that I absolutely love. There is nothing like surrounding yourself with aromas that relax, rejuvenate, motivate, and more. When I unboxed this Zen diffuser from Gurunanda – I found myself in a pickle. This may replace my old diffuser! The Zen looks super cool with it’s color change LED lights, sure. But it’s also rechargeable so you can take it anywhere. AND it has Bluetooth connectivity so you can listen to your favorite relaxing music while you diffuse.






Just to be clear – this is a pillow …for your eyes…that looks like a fish. This is NOT a pillow of a fish eye (even if that would be totally cool too). Let these soft swimmy friends sooth you to sleep and keep out that horrible sun monster. “This is not just any fish… close your eyes and inhale…. the magical fragrance will transport you to the provincial country side of the south of France where you lie on your back in a meadow of purple lavender flowers for as far as the eye can see…




My son got this as a holiday gift from his grandmother – and we LOVE it. Create your very own comic book. Get it printed and bound like the real thing! Creative kids design characters, heroes and villains using the pencils, markers, and 18 special pages. They add text and speech bubbles. Once finished, just seal it up in the provided postage-paid envelope. It’s off to the professionals to be printed and bound, with a title, your name, a bar code, an artist bio, and more, just like a real comic book.






It’s like Ryan Gossling in your cup every morning! Meanwhile, help your immune system Feel Better. If it doesn’t – they have a money back guarantee.




“…making craft cider at home is as easy as making coffee.”  Say WHAT?!  In just 3 steps: 1. Choose a recipe on the Alchema app 2. Add ingredients – fruit, sugar, water and yeast 3. Wait for Alchema to alert you (via your smart phone!) when it’s ready.

  3. Die letzten Blättchen am seidenen Faden – richtig schön stimmungsvoll eingefangen. Aber die Farben des gemischten Laubes am Boden sind noch beeindruckender, denn bis jetzt habe ich noch nie so eine schöne Laubansammlung gesehen!Danke für diese sehr ungewöhnliche Herbst-Impression.Liebe Grüße und gemütliche Tage im warmen ZimmerSilke

I can’t wait to read about it in your blog. I wish you all the best of luck p.s. and if I hear of anyone looking for a house in PA I will send them your way!!

  6. Thanks for the link. Great points made in your review (love the nailing jello to the wall analogy).Also, regarding the blacks/priesthood thing…in 2001 I had a bishop who quoted a friend's patriarchal blessing (the friend was a black man from africa who'd given the bishop a copy of his patriarchal blessing) to reiterate the lesser-premortal-valiance thing.So as of this decade, it's definitely still being taught…

  7. Agreed – it’s part of risk with uber-cool church that is cool with wearing jeans. But again, “are those real?” KIDDING (I am not kidding). PS: torn jeans, wrinkled clothes and bare feet are fine (this coming from anti-germs-girl). Ann – I love the heck out of you! You are the perfect example of tasteful, yet stylish, dressing for church.

  8. Ouaw, le jeu de mot !!! Heureusement que vous l’avez expliqué, je me demandais comme les autres pourquoi pas un D10 ! du coup double effet kisscool, j’ai ri une première fois à la lecture du dessin, et une deuxième à l’explication des indécis ^^Merci pour la bonne humeur quotidienne !

  9. CthulhuPL is right richie, there’s been nothing on ps3 at all this year apart from journey(which i liked).Not many exclusives on 360 either to be fair, although halo 4 is almost here and there’s been loads of great downloadable games like spelunky, fez etc.Who would have thought it, the 360 edging the ps3 in 2012 as far as exclusive games were concerned.Fantastic!VN:R_U [1.9.17_1161](from 3 votes)

  11. Well Thomas, WHEN you reach the age of fourteen you will find that as a young, young man you may be a little confused about your feelings towards gay people. Most people grow out of it as they age a little and become a little more secure in themselves.’I’ve watched a lot of apologists for homophobia post today’To Bo ber anyone who disagrees with his attempted smear is homophobic.How completely predictable.

  12. of the British. I think because people are connected in so many ways through technology and the exchange of ideas, there's a quickening phenomena that we haven't seen in history. This means we're able to visit the past, be in the present and visualise the future all at the same time. Watching events unfold and predicting the inevitable outcome becomes incredibly frustrating for observant citizens as we see freedoms eroding before our very eyes.Just how long it'll be before these frustrations boil to the surface is the big question. If all the FEMA stuff is true, the government is also preparing. Worrying times.

  13. / I simply want to mention I am just new to blogs and really enjoyed this web page. Probably I’m going to bookmark your site . You definitely come with very good writings. With thanks for revealing your blog site.

  17. I didn’t say you were psychotic, I do however think you’re very stupid. And this is not an angry comment, but an honest one, so please leave it up. I don’t see why you deleted my other comment which wasn’t even attacking anything but whatever.

  18. I used to love wearing men's jackets when I was in my 20's; Alice looks very chic in men's clothing. Ari, the text in this blog post is showing up as different font sizes throughout the text, just wanted to let you know.

  19. Wow, fantastic blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is wonderful, let alone the content!. Thanks For Your article about Лучшие приемы – как научиться драться на улице самостоятельно дома? .

  21. Nixon as everyone points out was a mixed bag. Another entrant into this list of best presidents has to be Eisenhower, his cajones in standing up to the thugs like Wallace and Fabus, and building our transportation network(even though the road building got out of hand). FDR would be my #1 though.

  22. cq – not a thing in the world wrong with dreaming if we never dream, how can our dreams ever come true?? <3i will offer this along with the dreams though…i wouldn't set my sights on many well-known music sources reviewing the album. its a small label release and a cover album to boot. you'll see reviews from the usual places that post david stuff but probably not much beyond that. obviously there will be customer reviews though. i'm pretty stinking excited to hear the album myself and give my own review!!

  23. Godt nyttår, kjære Sølvi! Det var jo sikkert helt dumt at strømmen gikk borte, men synes, dere hadde likevel fine juledager. Herlige bilder i alle fall. Smorformen minner om de gamle osteformene som finnes bla. i Undredal. Veldig koselig. Krumkaker liker jeg også veldig godt. DELIKAT! Må innrømme, jeg ville ha byttet med slike juledager som du og familien hadde de.Klemmer fra PiPa

  24. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web might be much more helpful than ever before.

  25. Beautiful bracelets and beautiful thoughts! … I am also trying to contribute with a handmade bracelet, viking knit … I want to do it with my heart, as a memory of my mother,for emigrants from Sweden and to all who need a warm caring.Thank you for telling about this.” Take care of your life, now it’s your time on earth.” – Vilhelm Moberg, Swedish writer.Take Care,Yvonne

  26. Wow, wow, WOW Michael, this is STUNNING my friend!! Love the blue tones in the sky, peppered with gentle fluffy clouds.. and of course, the wonderful sharp architecture and it’s related reflection… they all come together to create just the most delicious scene my friend!

  27. When I was staying at a boarding house on the outskirts of the campus, there was one of these assistant coach/recruiter types staying in the next room. He just popped up for the season. He brought up strange hootchie mommas frequently, and I could hear him on the balcony on his cell phone talking about his "prospecs". He would talk about his successes with them like he was pimpin' them girls.

  28. Hi Kristi, this is very helpful to understand the new changes, do you know where I can find out what are the pros and cons of opening a business page versus community? I have set up a page as community but not all the options are available (like becoming friends, or subscribing to the cause) and I want to migrate but to which format? Maybe I am missing some of the options available to the Community Format? thanks Niki

  29. This is very attention-grabbing, You’re an excessively skilled blogger. I’ve joined your rss feed and stay up for in search of extra of your great post. Additionally, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks!

  30. re: Columbia – A cousin of mine is a priest and was in Columbia back in the 1980s. One day while driving home on an unlit road he accidental ran down a child who was out playing at night on the road. Within a week the Church had to transfer him quietly and quickly out of the country do to all of the threats of retribution they were receiving. The family was out for blood. The really do believe in an eye for an eye down there.

  31. La descargué en cuanto apareció en "casa Aída" Es una maravilla.. cada vez descubro cosas nuevas y reconozco colaboradores.. ;-) Ingente labor y espléndido resultado.. ¿ya dije alguna vez lo de tal Palo.. ? sí, creo que sí y esa obra lo confirma..Un beso delirante, Rafa

  32. Yes! What I want more of is after the happily-ever-after. I'm in the middle of my happily ever after and want to read more about it. This is what I've been waiting for. Can't wait to read it! I've recently tried to REALLY lose weight. Not just wish it, but actually go and work out and watch what I eat. So far so good!dawndennis66611 at yahoo dot com

  33. Tricia my best friend from kindeegarten had family in Kaskaskia and when we just started driving we would go there. You have brought back some memories this morning! The flood of 1993~awful. But looks like you had a nice day! It looks good there and that church reminds me of Sacred Heart in Crystal City, MO! School and all!

  34. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this website. I really hope to check out the same high-grade content by you later on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my own website now
