Kate Moss’ breast used to create a Champagne glass

We all know British model Kate Moss. But how many of us know the exact shape of her breast? Well now, everyone will know, since a London restaurant has created a Champagne glass shaped like Moss’ left breast. London’s 34 restaurant, where Kate Moss celebrated her 40th birthday, has commissioned British artist Jane McAdam Freud (the daughter of Lucian Freud) to create a mould from the model’s left breast that was used to shape the bowl of the glass.
Moss said in a statement that ”Champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions, and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe.”

The 34 Kate Moss Coupe features an elongated slender stem and a bowl decorated with an Art Deco-influenced geometric pattern. The base of the coupe is etched with her “Kate” signature and a small heart.
As described by Freud, “the glass is an intricate abstract design reminiscent of Art Deco symmetry which, when held at an angle, shows a beautiful curvy shape”.

The glasses will be used to serve Champagne at 34 in October, and Kate herself will be therem, in Restaurant’s Emin Room to toast their debut. So, if you want to taste Champagne from Kate Moss left breast, you have to now, that’s possible only at 34 and its sister establishments The Ivy, Daphne’s, Scott’s, and The Club at The Ivy starting Oct. 9.

Stakelight LED Tent Stake Adds A Little Safety To The Campground

If you ever went camping, you know that campsite navigation can go utterly lopsided at night – you may trip on a metal stake, guy line, outdoor gear or a similar devious obstacle in the dark and even end up with serious injuries to your limbs, neck or back. Well, that’s about to change, and for the better – with StakeLight, there will be no more such would-be trip-happy hazards lurking around the campsite even when the lights go out.

Recently released by well-known manufacturer of outdoor lighting gear UCO, StakeLight looks like a trendy tent stake but unlike the traditional stakes, it also packs one more useful function, that of a handy light source right there next to your sleeping bag. Thanks to the integrated set of LEDs activated by an on/off switch built in the lens, the StakeLight stake can illuminate your camping area with 17 lumens of bright light, preventing trip- and slip- campsite accidents at night. In addition to the Area mode, the StakeLight also features the Strobe mode option which creates a perimeter of light on the ground to mark tent location, helping you find your portable outdoor shelter in the dark even across large distances with no difficulties whatsoever. When used in the Area mode, a StakeLight stick can provide for some 10 hours of light, and on the Strobe mode it can keep going for as many as 24 hours.

Built from heavy-duty 6000-series aluminum and outfitted with a water-resistant TPE housing, UCO StakeLight is durable enough to stand quite a bit of rough campsite love. Measuring 22.9 centimeters in length and weighing as few as 36 grams, each StakeLight stick is powered by a separately sold conventional 1.5V AAA battery that goes in the hollow stake tube, so you can easily replace it on the go without the need for extra tools.

Lightweight, durable and originally designed, StakeLight promises safe and easy navigation around the campsite even in the darkest of nights, so make sure you grab yourself a set of this sweet LED goodness before you set out on the next outdoor adventure.

Edible Chocolate Lego By Akihiro Mizuuchi

If you do don’t remember to pamper your inner child every once in a while, you might end up feeling low, ragged, straight-faced and grumpy from all that dreary work, the constantly increasing lists of need-tos and have-tos, and no time to play. And as we all know, the simplest way to cheer up your inner kid and keep depression at bay is to gobble up some chocolate. But while you’re at it, you might as well be creative and have some fun, even if it’s just to spite the echoes of elders’ warnings about table manners and playing with your food.

And with the latest chocolate assortment already available on the global market, you are even further encouraged to play around your plate: crafted by Japanese designer Akihiro Mizuuchi, the edible LEGO chocolates help awaken your creativity, stir your inner child into action and play with building blocks regardless of your age – plus they taste delicious, too.

Made from white, dark, milk and pink chocolate, Mizuuchi’s edible LEGO blocks look true to form and are absolutely functional, so you can build away for hours – robots, cars, apartment blocks, walls and the like – before you decide to tidy up your sweet mess and wolf your chocolate LEGOs down.

The Japanese creator behind the tasty toy set managed to preserve the shape and features of the real-life LEGO bricks with the help of an innovative modular system: first, melted chocolate is poured into precisely designed moulds to form the LEGO block contours, and allowed some time to cool off. Once the chocolate block patterns solidify, each delicious-tasting brick can be popped out and used just as any regular LEGO play set.

Whether you want to use your choco-LEGOs for play or eat them all up straightaway, Mizuuchi’s crafty moulds will prove a convenient and original extra in your kitchen set. Just make sure you remember not to leave your edible construction directly exposed to high heats – or else you will end up with some tasty chocolate puddles on your carpet, floor or tabletops.
