Magimix Vision Toaster - Perfect Toast Every Time

Imagine your breakfast with a perfectly toasted bagel, a little strawberry cream cheese and a cold glass of orange juice.

Nothing toasts like a Magimix by Robot-Coupe Vision Toaster. Made from durable stainless steel, this toaster is unlike any other. It features glass viewing windows that allow you to watch the toasting process and achieve toasting perfection.

Four quartz heating elements, four preprogrammed heat settings and extra wide slots make toasting all different types of bread effortless. The bagel setting toasts just one side, as a bagel should be toasted. Other settings include toast, reheat and defrost. Choose a setting or simply push the stop button when your toast is browned just the way you like it.

Built to last for 30,000 uses, you'll never have to purchase another toaster again. The Magimix by Robot-Coupe Vision Toaster is available at Williams-Sonoma and retails for around $250.

Daily Obsesh - Pocket Change Tray

There's nothing better than finding a couple of bucks in your pockets when you put on a pair of pants or a jacket. It's like an added bonus to start your day (or evening if you're headed out late).

But, what if you could remember what you had in your pockets by simply emptying them out each day? Wouldn't that be better? We know, we know ... then you wouldn't get that surprise stash every once in awhile.

But here's the thing, you could always find delight in how much money you collect over time in your funky little pocket change tray. The surprise would be that 20 bucks you accrue in just two weeks (who knew pennies could amount to so much?). Now wouldn't that be nice?

Make Your Home A Soothing Spring Get-Away!

Need a getaway pretty much every day? Then it's time to make your home pull double-duty as a spa and a sanctuary!

Inspired by the classic combination of blue and white, modern color palettes and patterns are picking up where Delph blue China left off. Fresher shades and patterns like Trina Turk's Trellis print recall beaches and far-flung tropical travels. You can buy it by the yard and use it indoors, outdoors, a lot, or a little.

For the mellower kind, a trendy chevron print in small doses isn't too 'tribal' or busy, especially if you go with a softer shade of blue.

After all, blue is a universally soothing color, especially when paired with pale colors like grey, whites, and beige. Pottery Barn's beach glass bath accessories will add a lot of luxurious home-spa style to any plain white countertop while still maintaining the calm you need.

Blue and white is a versatile pick-me-up anywhere, so for spaces - or parties - where you want more energy, definitely don't ignore the graphic appeal of West Elm's plates.

Daily Obsesh - Leaf Tray

It seems like the cold has gone on forever, so the first signs of summer can't get here soon enough! Every day we check the weather report and think, "Please be warm, please be warm, please be warm" just so we can break out all of our new skirts and dresses.

Some days we get what we want, other days we don't. So to keep our lives consistent, at least inside our homes, we went out and got ourselves this nifty tray'.

It's a brightly colored leaf fashioned out of leather (it looks like metal in the picture, but it's not!) that sits perfectly on our counter top to hold our keys, while gently reminding us that the sun will be shining soon enough. So never fear, warm weather is almost here!
