10 Things We’re Loving Now: A melting clock, a carrot sharpener, a golden mouse + more
We’re back to being cute and kitschy-and okay, weird.
(SPOT.ph) Inside our shopping bag is a trove of hilarious items that include a giant pencil sharpener (for carrots, obviously), a clock that "melts," a cat in a watch, and other fun things. Plus, summer essentials like Rubi rubber sandals, a travel kit, and yummy-scented lotions.
Cat Wrist watch in Black (P245)
Obviously, someone from SPOT.ph really loves cats. This little accessory is perfect for anyone who wants the world to know that you’re really going cuckoo over all things feline. That’s not really a bad thing. They’re adorable, we’re defenseless against theyir cute, blank stare that hide their constant preoccupation with world domination. Anyway: cat watch!

Carrot Sharpener (P799.75)
This giant sharpener is for those who want the tips of their carrots sharp and dandy. Just kidding. It’s actually a very effective tool for shaving carrots (and other vegetables) for pastas, rice, and other noodles. You’ll just look cute doing it, too!

This Star Won’t Go Out : The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl by Esther Earl, et al. (P699)
For fans of John Green-his video blog and his books-the story of Esther Earl is an important one. The Fault in Our Stars is amazing of course, but here’s another celestial story about a girl who didn’t let a debilitating disease knock her down. The pages are filled with hope and heart-all the warm and fuzzies you need to survive tough days.

Etude House Positive Vibes Hand Cream (P275)
They make your skin and your heart feel good! We don’t mean that you should ingest them orally, but the words of encouragement on the packaging of these lotions (that come in four different scents-Floral Musk, Powdery Citrys, Citrus Floral, and Floral Fruity Woody) soothe more than just your dry outer layer.
Available at Etude House
Aldo socks in assorted prints (P655)
They’re for men, but a girly girl could just as easily pair them with her Taylor Swift Keds. We always just saw the shoes whenever we browsed in Aldo, so finding their stash of cool printed socks was a happy surprise.
Available at Aldo, Greenbelt 5
Melting clock (P795)
We can’t all afford a Salvador Dali, so this is the next coolest thing. Prop it on a bookshelf or a mantel, and you have an instant conversation piece!

The signature green has gone pink! Starbucks’ latest line of tumblers and mugs are inspired by Japanese cherry blossoms, and this one has a special spout that prevents spillage. It’s the prettiest packaging ever for your daily caffeine fix.
