Who is Teo Jasmin and How Did They Find Me?

I recently received my first official product review request.  Me.  Product review.  Now, that's pretty stinking cool.

My first thought:  okay, I'm totally flattered.  I'll be honest, I'm thrilled anyone is even reading my blog in the first place.  Asking little old me to consider looking at their product?  Hey, you can be my BFF for the day.

Second thought: what if I don't like their stuff?  If I don't, I can't lie and say I do.  Not gonna do it.  And if you ever do meet me in person, it won't take you long to figure out I'm not going to sugarcoat anything.  I won't trash someone else's product, but I'm also not going to lie and say I like it either.  

So I'll admit, I received the request from Teo Jasmin, and while very flattered, I did start composing the "sorry, not interested" letter in my mind.  But for kicks, I clicked the shop link and ....whoooaaa, stop me in my tracks, this stuff is cool!  Really cool.  Cool stuff I would absolutely, totally, seriously buy.  I truly can't believe someone with cool stuff is asking me to write about it.

I had an absolute blast virtual shopping through the site (highly recommend you do the same, you won't regret it).  And I've chosen a few of my favorite things:
I'm not a dog person.  But even I can't resist this cute little gal.  If I had a daughter, I can assure you, this piece of art would be hanging over her bed.

Growing up, one of my favorite things to do was listen to my dad's album collection.  My sister and I listened to "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" so many times, we actually destroyed it.  This bag brings back some great childhood memories.

My little guy wants a school bus for his 13th birthday (I just can't make this stuff up).  He wants "the one with the nose, not the flat one".  I chuckled when I saw this pillow.  Wonder if he would be happy with it instead. 

And this last photo is my hands down favorite.  I have a space picked out in my house for this (in the foyer, so that it's the first thing anyone sees when they enter).  And to all my friends considering buying it?  Forget it.  I saw it first.

Be prepared to ooohhh and aaaahhhhh....
Love, love, love this.  I so need this settee in my life.  And I'm really not kidding.  I saw it first.

Unfortunately, these products are not carried in the United States right now.  How can that be?  But don't despair, if you have to have it and are willing to pay the shipping fee, everything can be sent to the U.S. and surprisingly doesn't take long to arrive.

And there you have it, my favorite things from Teo Jasmin.  Now go find some favorites of your own--trust me, you'll have a hard time choosing.  And while you're at it, could someone please get this stuff in the States?  Seriously.  Preferably within a 60 mile radius of my house.  Thanks for taking care of that for me.


  1. The princess pup is seriously illegally cute. Couch is great too! Nice job : )

  2. You chose some great items-- and I still like you even if you're not a dog person :) I love the tiara puppy, actually everything is so cool. I'll just add it all to the list of things I am unable to buy :)
