We come across a lot of amazing stuff on the internet every day and always make sure to pass it along on Twitter and Facebook. However, some of that amazing stuff really rises above the rest. With that, here are the top five things we found and shared this month in food, design, sustainability, creativity and more.
For a while now, Joy Cho has been one of our go-to sources for inspiration in design, food, DIY and more, and this Fruity Summer Striped Ice Cubes project beautifully shows you why. Joy lays it out easily: “Simply add layers of pre-made juice, smoothies, and/or coconut milk (which I love for its color and for a creamy touch) to standard ice cube trays.” If this doesn’t get your tastebuds excited for summer, there may be something wrong with you. This is one many “why didn’t I think of this?” ideas that pop up seemingly every day on Oh Joy! Give her a follow and get inspired.
Ever thought your footwork was so fancy that you could power a small city? Can your Dougie outwork a dam? Well, we’ve got news for you.

Imagine: high school dances producing sustainable energy instead of just awkwardness!
Kombucha is generally pretty good for you, but who knew it could be good for dogs? No, we wouldn’t recommend pouring your next bottle of ‘bucha into your pooch’s water dish, but California-based KOMBUCHADOG is doing its part to help handsome shelter dogs find new homes by featuring a rotating series of dogs on each bottle’s label.
Find yourself parched while enjoying your favorite novel or film? Want to emulate Don Draper but have (thankfully) come to terms with the fact that you’ll never be able to pull off the fedora? Well, pair your passion with one of the potables from this infographic and mix up the drink of choice of your favorite protagonist.
High class dining just got a little higher as Dinner in the Sky combines fine cuisine with 180 feet of elevation. While it costs up to $500 to get your seat, this once in a lifetime experience could be an interesting addition to your next Europe trip. You won’t find a more perfect marriage of dinner parties and construction equipment anywhere else.
