Shwood Sunglasses are Shweet !!!

Shwood is a Portland, Oregon based design company of these handmade, all-wood-framed shades-

Shwood currently gets its lumber shipped in from sustainably-harvested operations in Africa.

All styles are available with a selection of variously-tinted polarized lenses, which reduce glare…so basically this chopped down tree will still give shade !!!

World Cup Wednesdays | Louis Vuitton World Cup Case

Louis Vuitton was commissioned to ensure that the World Cup Trophy travels in Style.

LV‘s handmade  leather case was unveiled on Tuesday, along with a replica World Cup trophy, which is given to the winners. The original Cup is the permanent property of FIFA, world soccer’s governing body. Check out the making of the trophy case in our gallery, below.

British supermodel Naomi Campbell installed the trophy in the luxury case, handling it with gloves, as tradition requires only winners of the Cup may touch it. Good thing she didn’t throw it!

Magic Swim Inflatable Pool

The Magic Swim Inflatable Pool designed by Naval Engineer Paolino Napolitano, provides a safe place to swim while out in the open sea-

Surely not Jaws-proof – this jammie is made from durable PVC, weighing about 66 pounds when empty and can be setup with the assistance of a standard air compressor in about 5 minutes. It allows the sea water to enter the pool through holes that are covered with grids once’s it’s deployed.

Lovey & Thurston Howell III probably invented this from their fluffy gold lined cloud in heaven… Poor Gilligan !
