HAPPY THANKSGIVING + SMOKE SIGNALS

Happy Thanksgiving All!

That’s just a funny Badge I made as a quick weird little Thanksgiving project. But don’t you feel like you deserve an award for the monstrous amount of food you are about to consume today? I feel like its National Eating Contest today. Especially me, I have two Thanksgivings to go to. Don’t worry I bought some super cute elastic band pants.

And in lieu of Thanksgiving, just wanted to say that I am thankful for this awesome SMOKE SIGNALS post by Lauren, from HONESTLYWTF , an awesome+very popular blog filled with very cool hunting, great DIYs, inspiring art features and great travel posts. The colorific  photography and film is from the awesome duo of New York-based Floto + Warner, Jeremy Floto and Cassandra Warner. They create a mystical  and magical moment in these colorfully smoke filled abandoned buildings, and my fav WALLS and Nevada desert for their latest photo series. I’ve gotta agree when Lauren writes, “The video is especially mesmerizing, with colorful smoke moving along to Bon Iver’s moody Holocene.” CHECK OUT THE VIDEO HERE!

Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows 2011

It’s a little crazy how it’s Holiday season already. Christmas lights and trees for sale. & Holiday Windows! Window Displays are taken for granted. That’s just a personal opinion. I was guilty of that until I started working on displays for Anthropologie. There’s a LOT of work that goes into that. I mean amongst all Window Displays; there are some boring ones, and some clever-but-okay-ones. And then there are some AMAZING STANDOUT ONES. Here’s to the recent unveiling of the infamous Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows

Warning: This post is awesomely picture heavy…. so  Continue reading

How to Fly

I love Superheros, for many reasons. But its has always been the FLYING. Flying around with their long capes fluttering behind them. With the wind in your hair. I’d always imagine that I was flying when swinging at the playground. Or on a boat with the wind and water on my face. Who hasn’t wished that they could fly?  Well, these guys (and gals) show you how they fly through a mix of highlining, baselining, base jumping, and bungee jumping. A few weeks ago, I saw this amazing trailer. And on 11-11-11 at 11am they released the film for free for a limited time. The film runs about 40 minutes. The “flights” and scenery is every bit as beautiful and breathtaking as the trailer. It’s an adrenaline rush just watching them. After watching, I ended up buying a copy for a friend. It’s amazing and you can download it here for about $7. And here are some more shots Continue reading

It’s a wrap

The Kate Spade Blog is so much fun. I have so much fun wrapping presents. I can’t imagine how fun it was to wrap this car. Now I really want to drive it!

This is how it goes…

Awesome little vignette, à la strataflora

Add some coffee, cigarettes, moleskine, laptop with 50 million tabs, and phone with the wordpress app and you’ve got my life.
