teepee tent galore

This trend has been going on for a while now on Pinterest and Instagram and I think it’s a prefect addition for any kids room: a Teepee tent! What kid doesn’t love having a place where they can hide in to read books or play games? Loods 5 just added one to their collection that looks really nice and this one from Gray Label is pretty cool as well. Time to do some shopping.

the crossroads of should and must

Make some time this Easter weekend to read this sensational essay written by Elle Luna. It will change how you’ll look at life forever.

The Crossroads of Should and Must

 

The crossroads of Should and Must

“There are two paths in life: Should and Must. We arrive at this crossroads over and over again. And each time, we get to choose. Should is how others want us to show up in the world — how we’re supposedto think, what we ought to say, what we should or shouldn’t do. It’s the vast array of expectations that others layer upon us. When we choose Should the journey is smooth, the risk is small.

Must is different—there aren’t options and we don’t have a choice.

Must is who we are, what we believe, and what we do when we are alone with our truest, most authentic self. It’s our instincts, our cravings and longings, the things and places and ideas we burn for, the intuition that swells up from somewhere deep inside of us. Must is what happens when we stop conforming to other people’s ideals and start connecting to our own. Because when we choose Must, we are no longer looking for inspiration out there. Instead, we are listening to our calling from within, from some luminous, mysterious place”.

i love kevin bacon

It might be 30 years since “Footloose”, but Kevin Bacon (55!) still has all the moves. Watch this epic video from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, I’ll bet you can’t get the “Now I gotta cut loose Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes” out of your head all day!

herschel supply co spring 2014 collection

The Herschel Supply Co Spring 2014 collection is a collaboration with Californian artist Kevin Butler: Rad Cars with Rad Surfboards on Them. A limited edition capsule collection inspired by the rad Californian lifestyle.

herschel 2014 spring collection

Kevin’s Rad Cars illustrations harken back to his Californian childhood of sun drenched days at San-O beach, fixing old cars with his dad and working at the surfboard factory. From an early age, Kevin recognized old cars and surfboards as functional art, seeing the romance behind their craftsmanship. Several decades later, Kevin has nostalgically translated these two loves into a new art form with Rad Cars, striking a chord with fans worldwide. Each of Kevin’s cars topped with surfboards reimagines the surfer’s blissful commute to and from the waves. The air smells of sunscreen and surf wax and the tarmac is awash with sun bleached pastels and glowing chrome.

The collection includes Herschel’s signature backpack  in hues inspired by Kevin’s illustrations and with the Rad Cars print as an inside liner.

new york new york

We’re going to New York in a couple of days for an inspiration/business trip! The city that never sleeps, the big apple etc, one of my favorite cities in the world. We’ll be staying at the Ace Hotel in Midtown Manhattan for four nights. I can’t wait to see the beautiful collections at The Metropolitan Museum (the last time we went to NY we spend a day at the MOMA), vist the Playtime trade show, do some shopping in SOHO, we’ve made dinner reservations here and here and we’re definitely are going to have breakfast here. If you would like to tag along, be sure to follow on Instagram or take a look at the Pinterest map I’ve made. If you have any tips about anything we should check out while we’re there, be sure to let us know! Thanks! XO

distressed jeans

Remember this post? Well there is another trend I’m spotting a lot on the Pinterest My Style boards lately: Distressed Jeans. Yep, black/blue, skinny/boyfriend as long as they’re a little/a lot shredded. So what do you think of this trend? Been there done that in the nineties, or love it bring out the scissors and the sandpaper? I’m still undecided about this one so I would love to hear your thoughts.
