A Whimsical Twist on Practical Houseware

Wolfum creator Annabel Inganni spent nine years in apparel design before her designs took an interesting turn in 2010. Inganni is now creating household items like linen napkins, bookends, and coasters, but her flair for the unique provides a whimsical and stylish twist to these seemingly traditional pieces.

Los Angeles based Wolfum makes simple, everyday products from organic cotton, recycled poly twill, and FSC certified walnut. Quality materials mean lasting items, and lasting items mean less replacement and waste. If that wasn’t enough, bold patterns and colors like sage, olive, and navy adorn each hand-made product.

Wolfum’s collection of unique linens have a timeless appearance, with patterns that could have easily been taken from a trunk of beloved vintage items or used to embellish a modern tabletop. Wolfum’s colorful animal bookends and wall hangers also add a fanciful feel the the collection. Tigers, rabbits, coyotes, and a slew of other creatures in a variety of delightful patterns and colors would be perfect for a child or adult.

Whether it’s a mix-and-match collection or a coordinated set, Wolfum products are Inganni’s answer to a boring room. U.S. made and built to last, Wolfum’s whimsical products can be purchased at California shops like ST&NDARD GOODS and La La Ling, as well as Wolfum’s website.

Moleskine

There are very few things that we get in life for free, and one of the most valuable is the opportunity to have good taste. I truly believe and live by that sentence spoken in my own words. I believe that design and a taste for it can be acquired but is best if you are born with it. There are very few people who understand how fundamental it is for something to look good, but the people at Moleskine really understand!

Moleskine is a brand of book that can be used for writing, sketching, watercolor, planning, etc. They have many different lines that suit the users needs. These books have a professional and high quality feel and an obvious perfection when it comes to the overall look of these books. I myself have multiple Moleskine books that I use for sketching, writing, and other various things. They not only look good, but are some of the most functional products of it’s kind on the market.

Very few companies pride themselves in achieving such quality, but the ones that do deserve recognition, and Moleskine is one of the most prominent. It even shows in their offices. Simplicity is not overrated and too many companies and products feel that it is. When you go back to the beauty in minimal efforts you truly achieve a good taste in design.

Harvester Of Light Preview

Many of you may know this already, but for those of you who do not, I am working on a second book that will be out sometime later this year or early next year. The book is called Harvester Of Light and while I can’t give away too much information, it is set in an ancient forest where a dark secret is hidden, a secret that everyone’s lives are based around. It is an epic tale that will be about twice the size of my book Jim. While I do not feel that either of the books will be better than the other, I do feel that this one is going to be a must read! I am working very hard on it and for all of my supporters and readers out there I have put together an exclusive teaser trailer just for you!

The Hunger Games Official 2012 Trailer Debut

Today is a monumental day for fans of The Hunger Games! The new and oficial trailer, the one that is actually a trailer, not the one where she is running around in the woods for a minute and a half, has premiered! We have watched it and we love it, and we hate it, but mostly love it. Of course it is not going to be how one envisions the movie in their head, but I am getting the vibe that the cast of characters is not portraying them as they were in the books, perhaps it’s just this commercial not effectively showing character types. Either way, this is the most exciting thing to happen for a long time and since I love the books I am sure the movie will not disappoint overall. For those of you who do not want to waste a few minutes searching for this trailer, we did all the work for you, so sit back, relax, and enjoy!

The Hunger Games Movie News

The Hunger Games, a book series by Suzanne Collins, has become very popular recently. This series includes the books The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. The series is set in the future and is pretty much about these kids who are randomly selected from their home districts to fight to the death in an arena. Now, since this book has become so popluar Lionsgate made it into a film.

Filming for the movie began in May in North Carolina. It was wrapped up in early September. The movie should be released in March but it hasn’t been said where Lionsgate will hold the premiere.

Only one additional movie has been confirmed so far. Catching Fire is to be released on November 22, 2013. The company has a deal that encompasses four movies even though there are only three books. However, this does not mean that four movies will be made.

This movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Amanda Stenberg as Rue, Alexander Ludwig as Cato, and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. There are eight movie posters out depicting these characters.

Chegg It Out

Chegg.com for those of you not in know is a website developed around in new trends in academic life. It’s a book store for college text books that not only allows you to buy these books but also gives you the option to rent. Renting text books is a trend that has grown quicker than the gremlin population at all you can eat buffet after midnight. Everyone is doing it know from the bookstores on college campuses across the nation to major corporations like Amazon. Now these website are useful for starving college students as they can save cash paying almost half price or lower for their text books, but there are several catches one must look at before deciding to rent books.

The first one is how responsible you are. You see me being the irresponsible college student I am, would forget to mail the books back to Chegg and since I used my irresponsible debit card to pay for it, the money gets taken out of my bank out when the due date hits. Putting people like my self out of money. The second item you have to look at when renting is whether you’re going to need the book in the future. College is supposed to get you ready for a professional career and further learning, as you might need to reference a text at your job because I actually didn’t learn anything like me. Go Me! So if I rented the book I can’t reference seeing as I had to return it, thus in my perfectly pessimistic world I lose my job. Anyway, so choosing whether or not to use Chegg ultimately depends on how responsible are you with time and money, with a little bit of foresight thrown in.
