Black Diamond Knife Block Looks Stylish In A Modern Kitchen


You have to put your fancy kitchen knife collection somewhere, but why settle for the traditional wooden block you see in almost any kitchen? When trying to design a beautiful home, every little detail matters, and the Black Diamond Knife Block from company Edge of Belgravia is as striking of a knife receptacle as we’ve ever seen. Designed by one Christian Bird, the block fits up to 11 knives, but will look complete with as little as two. Almost any type of knife will be supported, as long as the blade is thinner than 4mm. “Clever use of weighting secures the knives in their blocks, just as slight angling allows for easy extraction.” And for something that looks this expensive, we’re happy to report that it’ll only set you back £89.90 (about $140). Oh, sure, it’s a lot of money for a knife block, we agree. But these designer items usually tend to fetch a few orders of magnitude more than they should.

Too Bad You Can’t Eat It: Inflatable Pizza Slice Pool Float

Inflatable Pizza Slice Swimming Pool Float

Mushrooms, pepperoni, olives, and lots of cheese– that’s what makes a perfect pizza for me. However, regardless of your toppings of choice, you’ll undoubtedly be amused at the weirdness and awesomeness of this swimming pool float. Yep, that’s right: it’s shaped like gigantic slice of pizza. In this case, the crust is something you can’t do without, because it also serves as the head rest.

The 72-inch inflatable features cord connectors so you can combine additional loungers (imagine combining a couple of slices to form one whole floating giant pizza!) It also has two drink holders on board so you won’t be thirsty on your floating pie. Too bad you can’t actually sink your teeth into it…

It’s available online for $40+.

You can walk on sunshine, and you can do it while walking on tennis balls, too. Well, not on actual balls per se, but with Chesters Tennis Flops, your soles will be resting on the same felt material that the balls are made of. In case you’re worried about the slippers getting dirty from the rain and from the typical wear and tear that flip flops are normally subjected to, don’t. They’re covered with a non-toxic protective silicone-based coating which makes them resistant to water, sweat, and dust.

Chesters Tennis Flops are available for $27.

Time To Chill: Rough Day Wine Glass

Rough Day Wine Glass

There’s nothing like unwinding with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. But how much wine is just right or just enough for whatever stress you’re trying to relieve? Although not accurate for everyone, the ‘Rough Day Wine Glass’ provides a good-enough estimate. Have half a glass for a day that was just like any other, pour more into your glass if you had a particularly rough day, or fill it up to the brim if you just want to forget it all.

The quirky wine glass is sold in pairs and is available online for $24.

Remember those slap bands of the nineties? They’re making a comeback– well, sort of — with the Slap Band Sunglasses.

In fact, you won’t have to carry them around because you can just wear it.

I Do: Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring


Would you say yes to this? This Doctor Who-inspired TARDIS engagement ring will make most girls happy (provided the right man is asking), but it’ll make Whovians over the moon with joy because it’s, well, a TARDIS ring. The double band is generously studded with diamonds, while the miniature TARDIS itself is covered in blue sapphires and even more diamonds.

The design, which was originally posted on Etsy, has since been sold, but fret not. You should be able to ask your jeweller to come up with an inspired design, if you want one.

Cup Of Wine On The Beach? Unthinkable Until You Get ‘The Beach Glass’


All roads lead to Rome, and it’s true that you can choose to get drunk any way you want; in the end you’re just as drunk. But there’s a certain appearance of class that comes with drinking wine out of a wine glass. Good luck projecting that “sophisticated” image while on the beach tough, unless of course you get yourself a Beach Glass. It’s all “Wine cup up top, and bloody spike at the bottom” so that all you have to do to keep your drink upright is to stab it in the sand. It’s a simple design, and with summer in full swing we suspect it’ll be popular with the beach bums among you. Of course, if it works in the sand, it’ll work in other surfaces like snow, grass, dirt, or anything that can get stabbed. It’s $10.50 for one.
