10 Things We’re Loving Now: a thought bubble corkboard, a vinyl clock, Kikomachine + more
Nothing like the week’s shopping to make Mondays more fun-or cute.
(SPOT.ph) The respite is over, it’s back to work for everyone. Have a fun Monday with our kitschy finds this week: a thought bubble corkboard (because a cute reminder to all the deadlines we have to finish makes everything seem better), a vinyl clock (because groovy never goes out of style), and a sweet rubber duck (because showering should be more fun under this climate). Plus, a fun overnight bag for those quick summer getaways, sweet kicks, and more.
Hollow City (P399/paperback)
Ransom Riggs finally continues his haunting adventure with Hollow City, the second installment to his bestselling cliffhanger Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children. This one immediately follows the events of the first book as the children and their mentor run away from monsters chasing those with special abilities. As with the first one, Riggs once again showcases his collection of old photographs, piecing them together to weave a seamless tale.

The only thing that we hate about this keychain is that it doesn’t actually travel in space or time. Everything else is Whovian perfection.
