10 Things We’re Loving Now: A book for solving dilemmas, a USB missile launcher, a puzzle-notebook + more
This week’s treasure trove is full of cool...
(SPOT.ph) This week, it’s a mix of kitschy and useful. There’s a jacket that looks like it belongs in a magazine, a book to help you with your problems, a poster with superpowers (sort of), and something to add a pop of color to your life in this gloomy, grey season.
Zoku Social Pops! (P995)
Personalize your popsicles with these cute stencils! The kit lets you create ice pops with words, emoticons, hashtags, numbers, or even a thumbs-up when used with a Quick Pop Maker.

USB Missile Launcher (P2,500)
Got a pesky co-worker you want to keep away from your cube? Install this to your computer and you’ve got an instant time-suck repellant. Hello, increased productivity! (At least, theoretically.)

Black Hoodie (P1,800)
When Sandy and Danny have a baby, their child will be wearing this as soon as it’s born. The weather and consequent traffic won’t stop us from looking rock ’n’ roll. This cotton hoodie is casual yet warm enough for the elements, but we’re digging the faux leather that toughens up this everyday staple. Those zippered sleeves are so edgy!
Available at The Artisan Clothing
100% Natural Bug Shield Moisturizing DEET-Free Oil by Human Nature (P99.75/50ml; P169.75/100ml)
New and improved! It may no longer be the season for shorts and tanks-but the mosquitoes don’t know that. Aside from fighting dengue, these little bottles are also a way to fight poverty. Human Nature is a company committed to nation-building and every purchase goes to the benefit of citronella farmers in six farming communities all over the Philippines.
Available at Human Heart Nature in Commonwealth and select specialty stores
The Illustrious Omnibus of Superpowers (P1,795)
Mind-control, invisiblity, mutation...We’d love to have them all, but this is real life, so instead we can have this poster with over 300 superpowers from heroes, anti-heroes, villains, and beasts.
Available at TasteCentral
