Scarcity of products with a collect-them-all mentality: “It’s a sweet spot of insanity.”  What a great line. 
An affordable line of brightly printed clothing, home goods and makeup ran out in hours, stunning even Target, which said the collection would not be restocked.

Another example of "Do large, well-represented corporations actual help small, local business?"  Perhaps the majority of consumers can be placed into two categories, preferring consistency or counterculture. 
"Yoga juggernaut" seems like an oxymoron, and a...

I will be interested to see how this turns out.  It seems businesses must be either really big or really small to exist in this retail environment.  [Insert analogy for shrinking middle class.]

+Starbucks Coffee Malaysia love!  I asked for a bag because my hands were getting full.  I received this!  My Black Tea Latte double-bagged with care.

Ha!  Sounds like typical Berkeley/A.C.   Scorn to those who do not bring their own reusable bags!  

That price for a chocolate box is exorbitant!  Wonder why.  Make a loss on the chocolates but recover with the box margins?  Weird.

We worry too much over trivial flare-ups while forgetting the seriousness of the questions the 2012 election will decide.

This kind of "well, that makes total sense" move makes me wonder if Amazon has plans for world domination.  And, if they are unstoppable. 
Amazon is setting down roots in U.S. college campuses, and today it is celebrating the grand opening of its first ever staffed location at one of those..

Love CEO profiles/Q&As!  The motivation of Patagonia's CEO is an especially refreshing departure, prioritizing ethics as much as profit. #Retail  
Patagonia tells customers not to buy its clothes and gives away earnings. Somehow, the result is profit and respect.

Perhaps one of the best experiences I have had in a store EVER. My husband and I kept saying to each other "Wow, they're all so friendly." And, Basics Plus does same day delivery for free! No more worrying about transporting a full-length mirror on the subway! When it came time for the delivery, an employee called ahead to make sure I was at the apartment. The delivery guy was polite and the friendliest of them all!

Glad to know there is a place in the world that I can get my corn-fix. The corn chowder and sun-dried tomato pizza were scrumptious, particularly because of the grilled corn. I went back and had the sun-dried tomato pasta. Also delicious, the corn really made the pasta pop.

Fantastic experience getting my eyelashes permed for the first time. Lovely staff was warm and attentive. Spa room was so comfortable. The place is small, so make sure to call ahead for appointments.

I enjoy coming through this airport every time. No lines. It is clean, calm, and everyone smiles. SMILES!! Much preferred over the mad house LCCT.

Like Chipotle except with pizza and more expensive. Think that about covers it. I went here once to see the concept, but nothing wowed me enough to want to come back.

Hotel Palomar meets all my expectations for an acceptable hotel stay. Comfortable room. Clean bathroom. Everything works. Responsive hotel staff. But this place really shines in how it exceeds these expectations. The decor with spotlights of color and quirky prints. Quality bathroom amenities with an extensive list of complimentary extras that can be obtained from Guest Services (nail clippers, professional hair dryer, razor). Yoga mat with free on-demand workout programs. Fruit water available at all times in the lobby. Also, the hotel is uber pet-friendly! I currently have a hotel-provided goldfish to keep me company! (His name is Beef) The location is quite convenient. There is an amazing variety of places to eat or drink within walking distance (10 minutes to Westwood Village or Persian Square). Who wants to drive in LA anyway?!

Great little outfit. My husband and I did 3 days of fun dives with Eco-Divers. Each dive was very personal and efficient, excellent diver to master diver ratio. The staff are superstars! The shop is also conveniently located right next to ABC jetty.
