Can you believe that we are already on our Sunday #11? It’s insane how fast time passes. We’re thinking about making a giveaway, what do you think? Maybe on our #20 … first we need to think in the conditions to participate; what we can make; if it will be only for Instagram followers, twitter followers or WordPress followers? (As you can see, we really need to think about it).
But on other topic, how was your week, beauties? Good, bad, Comme ci, comme ça? Mine was fast and with a lot of work to do. Add it a broken pc (fortunately still in warranty) and you can imagine how was my week. Unfortunately, I am are so addicted to technology that when a gadget is broken I almost feel like I lost a member (a little bit dramatic). Do you feel the same?
So for now, I’m currently writing this post on my cellphone (I’m still learning a few hacks on my new iPhone) with all my ‘creative tools’ by my side. What’s your creative tools? I’m a simple girl, so mine are just chocolate and coffee.
Every week I share with you interesting things I found and this week I read an interesting article: Did you know that experts claim the key to a more creative workplace is very simple? Surround yourself with green hues. According to these experts, a day out in the countryside is what’s really needed.
I don’t know about you, but with the quantity of work that I have every day, I probably will opt for a countryside screensaver instead.
This week, I promised not to ramble (so much) so let’s talk about why you’re really here. But first a question: Did you found any new or interesting product this week? Because, we did!

We try to show you our beauty list every week, to keep you up to the game with the latest trends and technologies. So stay with us and see what we would have in our shelf if the genie of the lamp existed.
