KAKKOii  – Wow

Antonio Arevalo, a London-based designer, wanted to design something that will fit our urban lifestyle.

It’s very simple design and eye-catching colors make it a perfect accessory for any music lover. The KAKKOii Wow can easily stream music from any wireless device.

Berlin Boom Box

The 80’s ushered in a new wave of music, and it gave rise to the humble cassette recorder or simply known as the Boom Box. Thanks to RUN DMC and actor John Cusack (from the movie “Say Anything”), owning one was the in thing. Unfortunately, the Sony Walkman changed everything and made music more portable. However, Axel Pfaender, a German designer, decided to bring the Box into the 21st century. Calling it the Berlin BoomBox, it’s compatible with any iOS or Android smartphone, and it’s made of industrial-grade cardboard. With its Hi-Fi speakers and digital 2 x 5 amplifier, listening to your favorite tracks won’t be a problem. Although, it may require a little bit of assembly, owning one will surely turn heads every time.

Welcome 2013! Top 5 Quotes to Start the Year Right

Standard

Happy NEwYEar 2013

“Make New Year’s goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you’re interested in fully living life in the year to come. 

Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level. Goals give our life direction.

What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?

What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?

What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?

Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down – as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go. 

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.” 
― Melody BeattieThe Language of Letting Go: Hazelden Meditation Series

 

“May the New Year bring you courage to break your resolutions early! My own plan is to swear off every kind of virtue, so that I triumph even when I fall!” 
― Aleister CrowleyMoonchild

 

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” 
― Neil Gaiman

 

“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.” 
― G.K. Chesterton

 

“I feel sorry for people who maintain relationships and friendships detrimental to their mental health. 
Everyone is guilty of it at one time or another- but the idea is to strive to be your best; right? 
So, meanwhile why are so many people faking it? Security? Fear of loneliness? Fears of independence? Fears of being self ? Or just the idea that you can make someone change? 

Regardless of the justifications you give & treat yourself to… , I hope all of you – “new year -new me types” strive for self care , honest and pure friendships and relationships based of love- and not based off the fake realities of your mind. These delusions of what you hope for instead of what’s there, where you and your puppet show master focus more on everyone else and less on self. To change the world you must start within. But you must first BE HONEST with yourself. 

My new year started a few months ago– and it was the best choice I ever made- and 
I hope your recreations are progressive and successful in THE NEW YEAR” 
― Tiffany Luard

Now let’s move forward and start the year right! =)
