HAPPY NEW YEAR!
a little late…
Super duper awesome news! I can now offer pillows on my Society6 store! I’m so excited about this.
To make it even better, now thru monday (nov. 26) you get free worldwide shipping! http://society6.com/galaxyeyes/pillows
The pillows are made from 100% spun polyester poplin fabric (giving it a nice cotton feel) and are available in three sizes - 16”, 18” and 20”. Individually cut and sewn by hand, each throw pillow features a double-sided print of the artwork and is finished with a concealed zipper for ease of care. Last, but not least, the throw pillows are sold with or without a faux down pillow insert.
* the free shipping offer doesn’t apply for framed prints and stretched canvases.
Yes, they’re here! And the best part is that you can buy a cool iPhone5 case right now and get free shipping! No, I’m not joking :)
The other versions are also there. Don’t worry!
Free worldwide shipping is available until Sunday, Sept. 16, so hurry up!
You just have to click on this promo link for the discount.

Friday was Independence Day here in Brazil so I took the weekend off to enjoy the almost quiet city.
We’re having a heatwave this winter (it’s been a month already), so it’s pretty much summer. And when I say that it feels like summer, I mean 30ºC + (86F) and a burning hot sun! As we could expect, a lot of people ran off to the beach, leaving this concrete jungle far more empty.
My sister had mentioned a downtown second-hand bookstore the other day that had a lot of different things, but was a bit messy. I went there and well…there were tons (literally tons) of stuff.
It’s a three-storey house in one of Liberdade’s famous avenues but I had never been there before. The first floor is well organized and there are a lot of textbooks, fairly new CDs and old electronics like discmans.
The second floor is super messy. The books aren’t catalogued, there are many many many shelves and boxes and piles of books that almost reach the roof, creating very narrow aisles.
At a certain point, I thought I would find Narnia.
But it’s on the third floor that things get serious. After climbing the old wooden stairs, I found thousands of records, VHS tapes, comic books, encyclopedias and magazines all piled up!
You can actually walk in a field of comic books there. And If you’re brave enough, there’s a ladder for you to take a look at the top of the shelves.
The records are stored horizontally and it’s impossible to find something specific. Crazy!
Though I didn’t find nor buy anything (because I was too busy taking pictures), it was an interesting visit and it was nice to see some books, tapes and records from my childhood; especially the Disney VHS movies with those shiny/holografic covers!
This week’s mixtape: Elegance Is Excellence
This is a playlist that I created for a friend of mine. He liked my mix from last friday and asked me for something similar; fresh and new to relax after work. I compiled 33 songs from artists that constantly show up in my lists and some new bands I’ve been into.
I’ve been a little absent this week but it’s for a good cause. Galaxy Eyes finally has its own website! *cheers*
Consider it a selection of GE’s best and newest products and a place where you can keep in touch, ask questions and get to know a bit more about my tiny print shop. The menu and image links will redirect you to Society6, where you can make the purchase as usual.
- It’s hosted on tumblr so you can reblog, like and spread the love!
- No www., please.
A couple of months later…I came up with a new mixtape! I already have other playlists in the works so I’ll try to post each week, which was my original idea.
This time you’ll find some good old soul, r&b, retro, rock, blues mix by artists that I love and new bands that I’ve been into lately. Every single song was carefully selected.
Now get up and dance.
