Remember me bugging you guys about my start-up when I was on Kickstarter? Well, crazy things have been happening with my new little company. This coming Friday, February 3rd at 8pm, I’ll be on ABC & Sony Picture’s “Shark Tank” pitching my company, You Smell, to the sharks.
lol..Can you imagine how they’re going to respond? I want to tell you guys so bad about what all happened! Please watch the show :)
P.S. We’re officially launching on Friday, but the site is up and ready for pre-orders. If you want anything from our first batch, go to the website before the rush on Friday! www.yousmellsoap.com
This is actually a re-make of a vintage Crayola crayon package that Holli found at a Cracker Barrel for $2.50. I never would have guessed there was something I’d want to buy deep in the mounds of knick-knacks in their gift shops.
Replace Face is by far one of the coolest blogs I’ve ever come across. The artist, (who’s name isn’t anywhere on his site) found a slew of great paintings by George Dawe who painted 329 portraits of Russian Generals that were active during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. He gave them an entertaining modern twist by replacing their heads with today’s icons like Steve Jobs, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, and so on. The photoshopping is flawless, making it an incredibly addictive blog to keep visiting to see new additions.
Jump inside the post to see a few more of my favorites. And go to the blog here to see them all.
I love a good sign. The wood and distressed metal on this one give it a stunning vintage aesthetic that makes me want to run inside wherever the arrow is pointing to see if there’s a secret 1930s society.
This was designed by MM (where my favorite preancé works), and crafted by Lawrence Labianca for the business Monkey Inferno. In the first image, the guy on the right is Lawrence, one of the master craftsman behind this.
First off, the name makes me so happy inside. This calendar set is made by my friend Fabien over at Graphic Exchange. Each month has a unique letterpress design. He drew inspiration from vintage designs, some of which you’ve seen on here previously, such as the Sanborn Maps. Go to Mr.Cup to order one of the limited edition prints before they’re all spoken for!
I need your help! It would mean the world to me if my awesome readers would share my kickstarter page for You Smell on Twitter and Facebook. If you donate, you’ll be the first to get You Smell products (check out the awesome perks). I can’t do this without you guys!
Well everyone, this is what I’ve secretly been slaving away on. Obviously, given my addiction to all things vintage, it has a certain aesthetic to it I though you all might enjoy :)
These are seriously the greatest soaps you will ever try. I wouldn’t spend a year of my life and everything I own on something that’s mediocre! They’re all natural, have amazing ingredients, and an extremely creamy lather. Not to mention the paper soap is unbelievably fun.
I just got accepted onto Kickstarter (yay!) and would love any help you can offer, be it reserving a bar or tweeting about it. You can hop onto the project page and read more about them.

Wouldn’t you be proud to see it in a store one day and know you helped start it? If you enjoy the blog and would like a bar of soap and some paper soap packets, please make a small donation. I will love you even more than I already do :)
