The idea is simple. No more programming, no more constantly changing the temperature all while conserving energy and saving money. The thermostat is designed to teach itself in a week to keep you comfortable and save energy. The design is built to reflect the surface it sits upon to help blend into the wall, but it's a cute little guy even if it didn't. Of course, the CEO & Founder, Tony Fadell also went to the University of Michigan school of engineering, so my boyfriend (& I) loves this even more. Go Blue! Go Nest.

A month or so ago I read an article about how ambient light can disrupt sleep and can lead to all sorts of odd health problems. I started using my blackout travel eye mask that I usually take on the airplane in my own bed. Though at first it was a stretch, I have really gotten used to it. I'll be honest. My black out eye mask isn't very "sexy" but these Otis Batterbee cotton velvet masks at Liberty London are pretty cute. They also make a perfect little girly gift for just about any occasion.

A few years ago I told my mom (Doreen, aka Dory) I wanted to collect trays. For me it's a mix of pretty modern and a little danish vintage. I have a think for teak and sexy woodgrain, but wouldn't it be great to have a huge cabinet full of wonderful trays to move around your house and for serving and entertaining? I think so. What's your tray type? Brasilia Tray | Jonathan Adler Lacquer Wood Trays | West Elm Stockholm Tray | Ikea Vintage Tray | Etsy Scroll White Tray | CB2 Gryfino Tray | Crate & Barrel
