curiosity killed…

Dearest ______,

The older I get, the more I am convinced that women are more curious than the opposite sex.  Not curious as in interesting (highly subjective and debatable- I know), but curious as in “very inquisitive”. 

Take one simple visit to this charming new shop around the corner called Manicurious, for example:

Curiosity: What other colour- combinations do you have for the PANDORA Lego Bag + Petals?

MRKT was created in 2007 by two Harvard- trained architects who aspired to bring sustainable innovation into different lifestyle products (most famously bags such as the PANDORA totes above) by using renewable, natural materials such as the industrial- grade wool felt on these bags.

Curiosity: Is W/Sun a Korean sunglasses brand?

W/Sun (a.k.a. Waiting for the Sun), while Korean- sounding, is a French graphic + product design label that specializes in really, really, really cool sunglasses.  They’ve also come up with a skateboard, apparently.  This information just makes us even more curious, if you can imagine.  The sunnies D has donned above is made of the lightest natural wood… bamboo- like, just like my very own skate / long board at home!  Coincidence?    

Curiosity:  Gosh, how many designs can Nooka keep  coming up with?

There was a whole stretch of wall dedicated to these Nooka products, watches especially- ranging from its collaborations with designer Karim Rasheed or Hello Kitty, to its more popular Zub Zots line.

Curiosity: Is shopping really cheaper than therapy?

Some questions just need to be left unanswered.  Either way, nobody wants to be left broke or psycho- analysed as broken just to prove a point!  Manicurious has all these pretty things lying around- stationary, baubles, etc.

Help!  I’m an 8- year old girl again, and these little things are driving me crazy!  

Curiosity: Holy mother of watches, are you getting one?  Should I get one?  Should we both get one?

Fullspot watches are made in Italy.  Designed there as well.  Isn’t it a wonder how effortlessly chic they are?  It’s cheaper than a Swatch, mind you.  Should you get one?  Why, yes, you should.

Curiosity: Why Manicurious?

Oh look, there’s a nail salon!  And a cafe!  On top of all the nice things they sell up front?  Are you serious?

If you stay here any longer, asking all these questions… you know what they say about curiosity…
