Friday Link Round Up!

Happy Friday beautiful people! First off, thanks to everyone who stopped by from decor8. That was an awesome discussion, wasn't it?? (Holly over at decor8 started a great chat about commenting on blogs! Do you comment? Why do we need or want comments? etc. You can check out the thread here.)

Here are a few things that caught my eye this week.

I love fun illustrations and graphics and lordy, I think I was smitten with every single thing over at Super 7. They have cutest graphic prints ever, at pretty affordable prices:

I'm so excited we're in the holiday season now. Forget the scrooges and the commercial bits and lets focus on the joy, happiness and goodwill towards all! I was delighted to find this great example of spreading holiday cheer: the awesome Mibo Studios have an adorable FREE advent calendar to help you count down the days! Grab it here.

One of my favorite blogs to read is The Bubb Report. The irony is Becky runs the awesome Hatch, Design Public blog, but it's The Bubb Report (with fabulously trashy updates on things like Rachel Zoe and The Real Housewives) that I crave. The girl is also really hilarious. Occasionally she posts designy stuff amidst the pop goodness and I was totally smitten with these Jonathan Adler pillows. That damn Adler rules. You can see even more yummy Adler goodies over at his site.

I love retro and vintage photos so I was psyched to discover all the good stuff going on over at Plan 59. The thumbnail of the picture below was that jolly little Santa. Gotta say I wasn't prepared for a Hanes ad. I'm dreaming of a tighty whitey Christmas???

Kate Spade has jumped on the iPhone app bandwagon. And while this app isn't particularly fancy, it *is* an elegant and simple little date book/calendar to help you keep track of appointments and such. Did I mention it's free? I mean, heck, might as well give it a look see!

The last linky I have to share is the Omm Writer, which is the sweetest little gadget ever. In their words:

Ommwriter is a simple text processor that firmly believes in making writing a pleasure once again.

If you are a scriptwriter, blogger, journalist, copywriter, poet or just someone who enjoys writing, welcome back to concentrating.

Think word processor meets Air (or Cocteau Twins....or Enya). You get a serene screen in which to compose your thoughts. It's super charming and perfect for eliminating the clutter of your desktop. Below is a little demo video, but you should just go ahead and download the FREE Beta of this cuteness here. Happy writing! And happy Friday...xox
