True Confessions: I am Seduced by Sexy Packaging

I will readily admit to buying the more expensive item just because its prettier or cooler looking. I heart things like Method brand products, Papyrus cards and stationary, and I'll take a trip to Target over Walmart any day.

And that means I am attracted to pretty web sites too. These are just a few I frequent that I think you should know about.
  • Two Blue Peas - Owned by the friend of a co-worker, this site has all the elements of cute baby boutique without being overwhelming or stuffy looking. The founders describe themselves as "two peas in a pod but fun blue instead of plain ‘ole green." Two of my favorite items are the fortune cookie and sushi play sets. I also highly endorse the Trumpette socks. Those fit the best.
  • Moomah - I don't live in New York and I don't want to. And I certainly don't want the challenge of raising twin boys in the big city, that's not for me. But if I did, I think you would find me at Moomah. I was instantly drawn into this chill-with-your-children spot when I saw the photos in their gallery. I want my house to look like that. It's like a cool, not stuffy, museum, cafe, favorite library, and most awesome schoolroom ever, all rolled into one.

  • Paper Culture - This site makes me want to give up email in favor of letters, postcards, and parcels. Just so pretty! I want all of my mail to look like this. And even better, every one of their cards is environmentally responsible. They use 100% Post Consumer Recycled Paper and they use recycled paper for their envelopes and packaging.

  • Pingg - You can say you heard it here first, evite is out and Pingg is in! I've been using these free evites and ecards for months now. Their images make me want to throw an event for just about anything! These are some of my favorites.

Happy web browsing!
