10 Things We’re Loving Now: Hermione’s Time-turner, a backpack for Haiyan survivors, a "Selfie" button + more

Our finds this week include Van Gogh in your umbrellas and Elvis in a tea bath.


(SPOT.ph) A bag that saves, a button that puts #selfie monopods to shame, and an umbrella that’s Van Gogh. These are a few of our favorite things this week. Plus, we have a Time-Turner, a magical egg yolk extractor, key hooks for your purse, and more!


Compassion Upcycled Pack ($100)

These funky red rucksacks are upcycled from pre-loved pants and hi-grade tarpaulin, and embellished with leather lash tabs, nylon thread stitching, and genuine YKK zippers. The "jeans" lining has more than enough pockets to keep your things organized, and the roomy interior has more than enough space to store your laptop. Sustainable and stylish, this bag is more of a badge. The $100 pledge goes to Haiyan rehabilitation efforts like art and school materials, job development for survivors, and seminars for disaster preparedness and psychosocial development.

A second bag, Courage, a multi-functional survival backpack that doubles as floaters for kids, is also available.

Bobino Key Clip (P160)

We hate those moments when we would work overtime and find ourselves alone in a dark garage looking for car keys. Or when we’re just outside our house late at night, blindly searching for that elusive house key. Never rummage around your purse for your keys again. Stick the Bobino clip on one of the inner pockets for easy view of your keys. It’s a simple find that makes life so much easier.

Available at Fully Booked


Sunny Side Out (P590)


This fun device that separates egg whites from egg yolks in a literal pinch was made for health buffs who avoid cholesterol. Since we’re none of the sort, we’re using this to actually extract the yolk. (Making creamy leche flan has never been easier.) Simply hover the Sunny Side Out over the yolk of a perfectly cracked egg, pinch the handle, and whoosh, the yolk is in your hand.

La Pintura Folded Umbrella (P350)

Protect yourself from the sun’s sizzling rays with a masterpiece of your choice. Van Gogh’s "Starry Night" or Monet’s "Fields of Spring" will keep you stylish and sunburn-free.

You can flip it all you want, but we do feel compelled to give these words of caution: it doesn’t actually help you time-travel.
