10 Things We’re Loving Now: Bacon Salt, the Begin Again soundtrack, Tetris Lamps + more
Add bacon salt to Sherlock and what do you get?
(SPOT.ph) We don’t know about you but we’ve had the Begin Again soundtrack on loop for about a week now. Plus: ice-cube faces, the coolest lamp you’ll ever want, a water-resistant bag for those pesky tiny umbrellas, a Sherlock poster to keep the waiting blues away, and more!
Gouache Harvey (P3,500)
The rainy season is upon us and we're tired of squeezing our bodies, lunch boxes, and bags in one tiny umbrella. We know: something is always going to get wet. Try this water-resistant pack from Gouache. We never warmed up to those plastic totes, we love the softness of fabric and the elegance of a simple silhouette. The waxed surface makes it resistant to water-inside and out-and leather accents and antique-finish metalwork add laid-back chicness. The Harvey was meant as a camera bag, but there's no law that says you can't use it for your daily basic paraphernalia. It's just too darn pretty not to show off every day.

Angry Birds Bento Shaper (P200/set)
Moms are upping their baon repertoire. It’s no longer about finding a sandwich in plastic cling wrap in your bag. It’s about opening a lunchbox and seeing the cutest setup: bunny rice on a patch of grass kangkong, car-shaped mashed potatoes with sushi wheels. Make your packed lunch more creative with these Angry Birds patterns.
Available at Bento Mommas
Some things don’t really require explanation. It’s BACON salt. Just sprinkle it on anything and you have that instant delicious bacon flavor.
Available at The Food Bin, The Blue Kitchen, and Epicurious
One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak (P998)
We have to admit that we picked this up because Ryan from The Office wrote it. It’s not a good reason to buy a book...but after reading it, we’re glad we were blinded by his, erm, charms. It’s filled with stories that will make you smirk, giggle, and laugh-simple and straightforward, like the minimalist book cover.

Sherlock Poster (P250)
It has Benedict Cumberbatch’s face.
