Who doesn’t like looking at beautiful things? Moss and Fog is a project by a creative guy, Ben. It grew out of his overwhelming desire to share cool and beautiful things he sees. He covers areas of design, science and nature that appeal to the eye and the brain. Like this crazy $150 Million Stair to Nowhere (pictured) that New York will be getting some time next year and this Perfectly Preserved Mid Century Home in Dallas and these Incredible Geometric Desserts. In his own words “Design/culture blogs are plentiful, but I think when well curated, they can be beautiful respites on the internet to get inspired and find new ideas.” Agree.

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a children’s book that reinvents fairy tales, inspiring girls with the stories of 100 great women from Elizabeth I to Serena Williams. They are true and diverse stories of strong, creative, powerful women. The book has clearly hit a nerve as they just marked one week from the beginning of their Kickstarter campaign and reached $200K (or 500% of their funding goal). The creators of the book are the brains behind Timbuktu labs, which is dedicated to female empowerment with projects like a young girls’ magazine, several books, and a toolkit to help under-resourced schools to build their own playgrounds. Learn more about the book at it’s Kickstater page.
Emma Watson using her powers for extreme goodness. Her dress was a collaboration with Calvin Klein and Eco Age and is made from recyclable materials. “The body of the gown is crafted from three different fabrics, all woven from yarns made from recycled plastic bottles (!). Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet. Being able to repurpose this waste and incorporate it into my gown for the #MetGala proves the power that creativity, technology and fashion can have by working together.” Love this.
