Letters of Gratitude

letters of gratitude

Rob Martin and Jacq Pollock’s Letters of Gratitude was written to each other over the course of a month when first meeting each other. It was written as an exercise of learning about the other, but also learning about themselves through exercising letters of gratitude.

Afterwards they created this book to share with others because their own experience was so transformational. They had quit their jobs and began traveling the world as an act of being, as an act of loving life.

The Letters of Gratitude website has things to support this transformation and help you experience what they have experienced. they have a 7-day introduction to which you can subscribe to get a feel for what they’re talking about. Once you see a change in yourself their Gratitude Bracelets are a reminder to be ever mindful of this new outlook.


Would it be nice to begin again, with a fresh start? That’s the reason I started this shop — to highlight ways to start fresh every day with the ones you love. I think flowers symbolize that perfectly, and this book is a perfect way to put it all into perspective for daily living.

Good luck on your journey.

When We First Met print

we first met

Stay Happy and Don’t Die has a unique gift for him or her. It’s a custom made 17cm x 12cm print (7×5 inches) consisting of Google Maps pins in a heart shaped point over the location on a Google Map where you first met. When you order the print you let them know your details and they send you a proof to sign off on before producing your order.

We like the hands-on custom-made uniqueness of this, plus it’s sorta geeky and modern and all that. Probably mainly for your significant other, but maybe for a very close friend too? What do you think?

Perfect gift for my wife. She loves the size and detail. –amazon customer

This pendant is small, but is very nice. It was purchased as a gift for my son’s girlfriend. She loved it!!! It really is very well made and looks good. Don’t count on a heavy chain, as this one is very lightweight, but overall, it’s a good deal! –amazon customer

Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody Bag


A structured Rebecca Minkoff cross-body bag styled in quilted leather. A slim pocket trims the back, and a turn lock opens the front. Lined, 4-pocket interior. Optional, adjustable shoulder strap. Dust bag included. Product Dimensions: 14.6 x 13 x 4.9 inches; 1.5 pounds

Rebecca Minkoff was born in San Diego, California and began sewing at age eight, designing at eighteen, and launched her line in 2001. Minkoff’s “Morning After” bag was born when her good friend Jenna Elfman asked her to design a handbag for an upcoming movie, Touched.

Unfortunately, it arrived late and didn’t make it into the film. Minkoff was devastated. “I was so upset that I didn’t even watch the movie,” says Minkoff. But she started carrying the bag around the Big Apple — and gained a following.

“People started stopping me on the street and asking me about the bag. A friend who was a buyer at [LA boutique] Satine began selling it, and Daily Candy wrote about it,” says Minkoff. The bag sold out after the piece ran, and an accessories maven was born. While her handbag designs have been spotted on the arms of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff, Bijou Phillips, Jessica Simpson, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Debra Messing, Minkoff’s modern design sense appeals to every woman — and she’s become the #1 accessory designer for this very reason.

Rebecca Minkoff’s Love Cross Body Bag is a favorite of Linda’s — we know she’ll love it.
