Children’s Bicycles in Amsterdam Photo Series

In Amsterdam there are a lot of bicycles to be found on the street. This photo series, by Appdikted, shows some children’s bikes. They are locked with big fat chain locks, And, just the same, as the adult bicycles: always parked in a sloppy way.

Micro Cars from the Fifties

Micro Cars from the Fifties

How cute are these tiny cars?! They are one seaters, especially hot in the fifties of the previous century, built for driving in the city. A Fiat 500 could be considered as a microcar as well….See the Largest Collection of Microcars In The World HERE

The Bags, Shoes and Fruit of evachen212

The Bags, Shoes and Fruit of evachen212

evachen212 on Instagram is: “Eva Chen Lucky editor-in-chief, shopping-obsessed New Yorker” as it states on her Instagram profile and an “editor in chief/compulsive shopper/new yorker/nerd.” as it says on her twitter account. (@evachen212) Well this editor in chief/public figure works at Condé Nast’s Lucky, which is a fashion magazine. We at Mimi Berlin follow evanchen212 on Instagram and found out she has been taken pictures of her feet while she is in a taxi (well, always a different car anyways but since she lives in New York that must be cab’s) almost every day for a long time. Except for her feet, covered in designer shoes, she also makes sure her bag and a matching piece of fruit is in sight. She is including tags of the brands she is wearing that day.  We do like that concept but we were truly mesmerized by the amount of likes she gets; every time approximately 3000 a pic!! That’s what really got us curious about Eva Chen. We found a video on Forbes.com “a day in the life of Eva Chen” in which she tells us how social media is important in her life. Interesting fact is that the life of an editor must be one in the limelight nowadays. That used to be very different before, say like 10 years ago, when making a magazine was a fairly anonymous job. Not anymore; Eva Chen (and many more of her peers) is one of the Social Media Moghul’s, she probably has to be to keep her job. Watch that video HERE

Helping Hand

The Helping Hand is made from plastic and it’s nails are polished in pink, it has a flat surface and a wind up “motor.” It will move forward if you put something heavy, like a glass, on it! Helping Hand isn’t a toy, on the box it said:  Just wind it up. Ready to go automatically when drink is put on. Stops automatically at any edge – can’t fall off!  Helping Hand is a beverage carrier, coaster, disguised in a mechanical womans hand!

A Ride through Nanjing Road, Shanghai

A Ride through Nanjing Road, Shanghai. Nanjing Road (南京路 Nánjīnglù) is Shanghai’s main shopping street, and one of the most hectic ones we’ve ever seen. It’s also a long stretch so they have little sponsored trains to ride you back and forth on this shopping street. That’s what we filmed for you, the view we had in the 5 minute ride.
