This is Part II of Justine’s LAX-LHR contribution to Operation Window Seat ~ Part I was the Tiny Planes! Now it’s a look at the stunningly snowy winter edition as she flew into the VERY snow covered UK. It’s really so amazing to see the patterns cut so crisply into the white snow, layered with the fluffy clouds! Check it all out on the next page!
Here’s a look at the adorable packaging of Fearless Chocolates ~ to be fair, the elephant logo and the actual bite taken out of the chocolate when you unwrap it have won me over. Cute graphic details too! See all the packaging details on the next page ~ including a gold badge/sticker thing!
UPDATE: Congrats to Ayla in Ottowa, Anneke in London, and Tim in Queensland!
NOTCOT Holiday Giveaway #9 is here ~ and today our friends from Suck UK are giving 3 lucky readers: a box of Xmas Declarations! “Deck the halls with light explosives”. No one is suggesting you do that. Our set of 6 plastic Christmas decorations merely serves as a subtle reminder, during times of celebration, of those less fortunate. And also noteworthy, when a pack is purchased, a donation is made to Ctrl.Alt.Shift’s fight against global conflict. Ctrl.Alt.Shift is an experimental initiative - a new generation of individuals striving for social justice and global change. Using creative media such as photography, film, stories, illustrations and music, it aims to give a voice to the silent majority.” I have adored the way that Suck UK has found cheeky, brilliantly designed ways to help people think a little differently while having fun. This giveaway is a great one to help keep things in perspective while celebrating the holidays!

Aussie company,Knog, is one of my favorite bike accessories companies to watch, and i’m not at all a bike person, but i love watching what they are up to ~ beautifully designed products, playful photography ~ and their latest line of Bike Locks do not disappoint. Functional with a fun use of silicone to top it all off ~ gorgeous color choices ~ and so many options. Take a peek at some of it on the next page. LOVE the pic of one even holding up a CAR!

Justine seems to be taking over my Operation Window Seat addiction… and is taking it to a whole new level. Armed with her new Canon 60D, on her LAX home to LHR flight, she has started taking some amazing TINY PLANE SPOTTING pics! Found these in my dropbox shortly after she got home. You have to see how incredibly tiny they look! Then let yourself imagine how many people are in there! They are pretty amazing, almost surreal, and i swear i didn’t photoshop them in! So very fascinatingly tiny, check them out on the next page!
