The Shibaura Travel Tote From Jam Love Comes With Goodies Women Desire


The top five items women want in their handbag as found out by the newly launched handbag label, Jam Love, goes something like this; a high-end smartphone (hint iPhone!), a wallet with a luxury brand name, a tablet, camera and of course a pair of fashionable glasses/sunglasses. Jam Love put this knowledge into good use by creating “The Ultimate Handbag” named “The Shibaura Travel Tote” for the upcoming Fall/Winter collection, and filled it with a Vertu Signature Touch phone, Burberry Contrast Leather Zip around wallet, iPad Air, Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III camera and Gucci sunglasses.


Jam Love has teamed up with VeryFirstTo.com to launch the Shibaura bag as well as to conduct the survey. Other fascinating facts found out from the survey includes women also love to have in their bag Thor star Chris Hemsworth’s room key, a bottle of wine, a puppy and a magic wand! I think women sometimes don’t know what they want.


Named after the Shibaura-Futo district near Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo Bay, it is well-known in Japan for its high-fashion and fine living, and also as a celebrity enclave. The bag has pockets for a phone, wallet and keys. The roomy Shibaura bag also has a separate sleeve to fit in a laptop or a tablet. Suitable to carry around as a day bag or for travelling, it is available in colors including Jam & Toast (featured), Apricot, Blueberry, Chocolate Gingerbread and Black Truffle. A peculiar highlight of the bag is its Jam Love logo, the 1880 typographic font is etched onto each bag using a 19th century British letterpress process.


Made from the finest leather and bonded canvas, the Shibaura Travel Tote filled with luxury goodies comes with a price tag of $17,700 (£10,325/€13,076). Of course, you can also buy the bag for just $775 (£450/€569) without fancy items.


SpreadThat - Butter Knife Will Spread Cold Butter Straight On To Bread


Cocoa, herb or peanut, fresh, salted or just regular, butter is truly an essential ingredient of any wholesome breakfast. But what if your refrigerated butter slab keeps adamantly refusing to soften and cling to the slice of bread, making your breakfast routine boil down to a series of useless and tedious toast-slathering attempts? And though you can’t actually heat the whole lump every time you need a slice of your everyday bread-n-butter, there’s one smart trick that may save you all that breakfast buttering hassle, and it’s called SpreadThat!, a self-heated butter knife.


Crafted by award-winning Taiwanese design company Gixia Group and manufactured from a non-toxic, food-safe titanium, SpreadThat! is a clever heat-transmitting butter knife that softens cold butter in a flash, allowing it to spread neatly across a slice of bread without all that needless stroking and daubing hassle. And how exactly does this little buttery-thingy do that, you may ask. No magic there, really: the world’s first self-warming spreader that uses no electricity whatsoever, each SpreadThat! knife is equipped with a cutting-edge heat-conducting technology that transfers your own body heat to the titanium blade to carve off chunks of butter easily and heat it up for smooth spreading in under 20 seconds.

So, if world-famous design juries decided it’s good enough for your everyday butter-spreading tasks, why not try and give it a go at your next meal time?
