I first blogged about The High Line project back in July of last year, and until now had heard very little about it. On April 10th the transformation of The High line begins– the city will celebrate the beginning of construction (after 20 years of legal disputes) with a free party on Little West 12th Street. No word on timing of the overhaul, how long it will take, etc–but soon it will become a beautiful public park designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Very exciting, I can’t wait to see it completed.

I don't usually drink coffee, so early mornings can be especially hard–Until I was given a sample of Zipfizz, a healthy new energy drink mix that only has 10 calories, no sugar, and includes 25 nutrients, antioxidants, and electrolytes. All you have to do is poor the mix into 16-20 oz of water and you have an instant energy drink. The small packaging, about the size of a finger, makes it easy to take with you and because Zipfizz is designed to replace vital nutrients it's great for sports. I recommend it for an early morning after a long night out, it definitely helps in fighting hangovers, trust me.
Caddy is a new product concept by a London based design consultancy called Wood&Wood Design. The idea behind Caddy is to draw together a mobile suitcase, a “granny trolley”, and a walking aid. The Caddy can be either pushed or pulled to suit the needs of the users. The design team says the simplicity of the concept allows for a broad market appeal especially with older users who are traveling and working nomadically more often. It seems like an all in one inclusive product– and is made with a rigid outer shell and removable soft inner case. The handle is moveable as well so the user can pull the case in “closed” mode, or push and lean on it while it’s in “open” mode.
