Designer inspiration, if not designer purchases

Nima Taherzadeh bow sleeve jacketSince having kids, my insatiable hunger for all things art, fashion, and design has been unsatisfied. And rightfully so. I barely have time to eat an actual breakfast, let alone devour the piles of magazines I once looked to for inspiration for my spending habits.

But then I discovered the gorgeous offerings at AHAlife, and I felt a little bit of the old me was awakened

The site features one amazing product that’s up for purchase for just 24
hours – all lifestyle goodies, all united in being exceptionally cool.
Think meticulously curated boutique where you might not necessarily be
able to afford everything ($750 clock? $1495 designer coat? Hmmm, not so much…) but the
stories and beauty of the pieces make you feel cooler just knowing about
them. Each day a new item is featured, and then archived for you to
search through.

While I can’t say I’ll be making a slew of purchases from AHAlife, I just love how it’s made to create and support a community, through bringing the work of these
talented artisans to the forefront. And also, that it allows you, the
member, the chance to act as a curator and suggest products you deem
worthy of being featured.

Plus I admit, it’s nice to have a break from the kid stuff and the bargain brands, even if it’s just for a few moments. -Kristen

Register at AHAlife (it’s free!) and be inspired!

    Neat site. I found this bag ( from the Nomi Network that helps women and girls who were once sexual slaves. According to the blurb about the bag: “UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children, most of them girls, are trafficked into sexual slavery each year. That works out to about two children being trafficked every minute. All day, every day of the year.” $75 seems doable to help a woman or child rebuild her life.
