10 Things We're Loving Now: Finger soccer, a yummy pillow, limited edition Dr. Martens + more
And postcards that create travel-envy
(SPOT.ph) This week in quirks is perhaps the biggest kitsch of all—finger soccer. We wonder how people would call it in Europe. Finger ball? We don't want to think about it too much. Plus, a ceramic milk carton that actually houses creamer, postcards to stimulate wanderlust, a really cool ice tray (no pun intended), and more!
Zeke and the Pirates (P295)
We’re always on the lookout for great local books, and this one is definitely—well, one for the books. Author Chinggay Labrador weaves a fun tale filled with pirates, mermaids, and talking birds, with adorable illustrations by Wiji Lacsamana and charming design by Steph Yapnayon.

Dr. Marten's Archive Con-Gress Boot (P7,995)
These boots, made of gorgeous smooth leather and Cristal Suede, were based on an archived design from the 1980s and 1990s, the decades that saw the height of personalized Dr. Martens. Because vintage is in and so is that well-worn effortless style, we are totally digging this stars and stripes look.
