Sweet Comfort....and a little give-away



I seem to get quite excited when I find something that is just, well, comfortable. Like the pillows at Ace Hotel in NY. Nighty night.

I recently picked up a pair of Urbanears, from Walrus, and they're making my hours of post production work sail right on by. The sound is great, and they feel perfect sitting on my ears. Have any of you tried them out yet? I can't wait to use them on the next looooong flight to Australia.


Next bit of comfort are these Toms. I know they've been around awhile, but I only just jumped on the bandwagon. Holy comfort. I never want to take them off. I love their company policy as well: You buy a pair of their shoes, they give a pair of shoes to a child in need. Enough said.


Now, about that "give-away". Check out Flourish Design + Style. She's got an 11 day give-away going on. Lots of great stuff. Up for grabs today is one of my prints. You get to choose which one.

Back to my day of post production, with happy ears. Ahhh.

Have a lovely day everyone!

toms are always on my wish list (have you seen the new wedges?!)

Pinecone Camp said...

I would love the wedges too, Ms. Down and Out Chic and Pamela.
Jan, they drown out everything....even the Mario Brothers!

koralee said...

I so agree with you on Toms my friend..we love them...just go my daughter another pair to go off to the UK with.... pure comfort. May have to find a set of those urbanears for her as well!!!!!! Thanks for sharing..we all need comfort.xo

Jen said...

I'm so glad you said Toms are comfortable because the reason that I've been holding off is because I heard they weren't! Some people say that it takes awhile to break them in. But if that's not the case, I know exactly what pair I'm going to get!

mise said...

I like the sound of those Toms. Perhaps I'll wear a pair while lounging round admiring my giveaway win from Flourish.

'odd and old' Linda Dacey said...

Two things come to my mind reading your post:
1. 'Like you' I'm all in for comfort.
2. 'Unlike all of you' I am seriously out of the style loop! (Tom's? aren't they male cats aaargh)
Been living in a field too long, time to peep over the hedgerow I believe...

super cool headphones! those would be so great on an airplane...and i'm glad they are helping you out in post. (hope it's not too bad!)
i'm glad you're loving the toms. i'm all about the comfy footwear.

Missing Goat said...

oh, I've wanted these shoes for a long time - good for you - wear them tomorrow so I can see how they fit. Love the head set, but I would need something to plug them into. Would it look so utterly stupid if I just had them as props?

the southern hostess said...

Great finds! I'm all about those headphones.

shari @ little blue deer said...

Ah, always on the lookout for good headphones, will have to check these out! I'm all about comfort! Will pop on over to Flourish and enter the giveaway! XO!

Toms = LOVE!
Also I love that your Urbanears are yellow - so much cutter than those big black ones you see everywhere. After flying back and forth overseas so much, I'm all about noise cancellation!
thanks for stopping by my blog today! : )

Michele Payne said...

I (like everyone else!) love those lemon yellow headphones! Thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my blog today - I've stopped feeling guilty now. Your prints and photos are fantastic, by the way xx

Kathleen said...
