iWatch concept by Italian design studio ADR
Is Apple working on the iWatch? Almost a year ago the Wall Street Journal had such a report, and now this week, the New York Times once again claims the same thing. The idea would be to have a wrist watch, something that can be worn on your arm and thus be easy to access, and also run the iOS software which means you could access apps, get the weather, email, even read books if you wanted. Of course, because of the small screen, the usability would be questionable, but for people who still use watches it could mean a huge increase in power for what they have access to when using their watch.
The basis of these speculations comes from two insider sources, as the Times puts it.

Its no secret that were huge fans of Tea Collection here at MOMfinds. From their gorgeous printed dresses for girls to their cute, practical designs for boys, Tea should be every moms go-to when looking for beautiful, well-made childrens clothes.
Tea Collection recently gave us the opportunity to sample the new Tea Collection spring 2013 collection and no surprise, we werent disappointed. I have a little girl, so I splurged on a bunch of the seasons best and brightest dresses and both my daughter and I were in love with the designs. She loved the colors and the playful patternsI loved the quality and that the designs are so versatile. She can easily wear the dresses to church on Sundays and to run around and play at school.
So with spring just a little over a week away, Tea Collection is the first place you should start shopping for your little ones spring wardrobe.

You may have already experienced it when travelling. You scrupulously ironed, folded and packed your shirts into your suitcase before leaving, and everything was creased when you arrived!
My advice: protect them by using a cardboard (rigid enough), put the shirt into it then place it in the middle of the suitcase stucked between the shoes (from the bottom) and the jackets for example (on the top). I usually put two shirts into the same box in a 69 position. Once arrived and taken the shirts out of the case, they are in a totally wearable condition!
One other more elaborated solution: some luggage brands propose specific boxes allowing a better organisation of your suitcase by seperating the clothes in different comptarments.

Brothers Joe & Nick Schaeppi were in search of the perfect way to make the perfect wallet with the following attributes:
• Versatile yet fits your precise needs • Enjoyable to use, thin, durable, & protects valuables from the elements • Can be broken in like leather but won’t get wet like it • One of a kind, has great design, and tells a story • Locally made from high quality recycled or sustainable resources
They had a realization that in addition to great design, the material they used would be a fundamental component. For them, this perfect material would be billboard vinyl. Billboard vinyl represented all of the characteristics they were looking for in a material with the added bonus of recycling something that would end up in a landfill for all eternity or end up burned and releasing toxins into the air.

Spring is around the corner but it can definitely bring along some cold and rainy days. Such days can not only make you ill but you can also suddenly show up to work completely unprepared. So, check out the following coats and pick one of them for the surprisingly wet and cold days of Spring.
Frock style coats
Frock style coats are not only warm but they are also unique. Almost every woman has straight fit coats in her winter wardrobe. So, go for a frock style coat this time to break the monotony of your wardrobe. You can go for a vintage wool frock coat that has an A-line cut and a V neckline. Check out the Scully Alexandra coat if you like lapel collars and button closures. This coat is perfect to still cover you up on a blustery day.
