Avoiding Tension

Running From The Pitchforks

On the topic of niche brands that make us smile but are also genuinely awesome… have you heard of A Beautiful Life? We spotted them at Urban Outfitters and now we are trying everything. So expect a few more glimpses into things they make after this fragrant post…
                                
A Beautiful Life has a collection of perfumes that are cutesy-cool and unlike anything you’ve ever smelled. Pictured above (a top Lisa Frank #FBF) is their signature I Heart Unicorns and a new one called Composition - in lure of the BTS season.
We are a little obsessed with I Heart Unicorns… mostly because it’s a delicious and juicy melange of bright aromas that send us straight back to the 90’s when all of our paper products had a bit of rainbow on them. If Lisa Frank had a smell, it would be I Heart Unicorns. 
Composition captures the bitter-sweet essence of going back to school with a hint of tart green apple and a whole lot of crisp paper and cozy sweaters. Get anywhere near this fragrance and I guarantee you will be rushed into a wave of middle school nostalgia.

Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Custom Mofs Now Available!
£108 GBP - $180 USD (+ P&P)

Mofs are six-limbed, cuddly and pretty darned adorable art dolls. They have resin heads, hands and feet that have been painted and varnished. Their bodies are sewn cuddlesoft and stuffed with fluff and a bit of steel shot so they have a realistic weight.

I can make a mof version of a real moth or butterfly, or do abstract wing designs, just let me know what you’d like and we’ll chat about it (completely obligation free)! My email address is hello@magweno.com, or via Etsy convo. 

Payment can either be 100% up front via the etsy listing or 50% in advance and 50% and shipping on completion. Turnaround is 7-10 days!

Some moffy feedback received in the past!

The quality is as beautiful as I expected; the sewing and painting are excellent and his eyes are so shiny and lifelike! I love how soft and squishable he is. I love arthropods and it’s rare to find artworks, especially dolls and plushes, that do them justice. Thank you so much!!”

"LOVE my custom mof! Maddy truly has a unique and one-of-a-kind gift, on top of being very friendly, informative, and willing to please. Everything about the transaction—from the order process, to shipping, to the final product—is top notch! I’ll definitely be ordering from her again in the future!"

"The super cute brown Mof doll arrived!! It’s so cuddly I can’t stand it!"

"Wow! wow! wow! He’s so soft and came packaged extremely well. I had fun opening the package to get to him. Just beautiful in every way. Flawlessly put together. The artist was understanding and a delight to talk to. Thank you so much Maddy. I will be back again!"

The Falcon Finally Gets a Character Poster

Just kidding, Anthony Mackie‘s the Falcon still doesn’t have a character poster. Except for international Spanish-speaking audiences, who got this totally badass one. Come on, Marvel. Even Robert Redford‘s just-wearing-a-suit villain has his own character poster. Act like you’re super excited to introduce American audiences to the first African-American superhero in comics.
