File this one under “things I wish I'd thought of”. Designed by Nascar fan, Laura Victore of Victore NYC, Ladybuds are earrings that double as reusable, noise-cancelling earphones. I wouldn't be surprised if other designers followed suit with all manner of cute danglies that are just as functional and irresistible.

We've already seen the Hello Kitty buds, so more brands are sure to follow!
