From Paris by way of Mexico, I'm so obsessed with these Mexicana by Old Gringo boots! Inspired by O.G. classics, it's no wonder they look so good. Really though, I need another pair of boots like I need a hole in the head, but who could possibly resist when they look this good? X - Jen

Tubohotel



Ever since Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, when the kids slept in the circular holes of a Lego, we've always wanted to do the same.  The Tubohotel finally gives us that opportunity, with hotel rooms designed in the shape of a tube.  Luckily, they include queen sized beds and there's no threat of giant bugs attacking in the middle of the night.
