I am beginning to develop my political views, but my views as an artist and a designer are firm and clear. And this video by will.i.am for Barack Obama is breathtaking, simple, elegant if it doesn't make you believe in a new tomorrow, i don't know what will.
See it here or click around at the following sites:Yes We Can or here.
For all you Mac and PC iTunes using music lovers - iConcertCal a plug-in to see which of your bands will be touring in your area in the upcoming months. It automatically scans your music and displays any tour dates near you in a nifty little calendar.
There is a blue-eyed boy that I know that would love this little plug-in or at least find it post-worthy. Especially after finding out he could see Cibelle or Augustana tonight at Carnegie or Webster Hall respectively. So, please for my tech cred go there: iConcertCal
Just started reading a new fun blog called SheepdogPD - full of everything you need to know about starting a print and design business. It is run by two sisters and an excellent resources for all you entrepreneurs out there!
And the image above, is from the freebie section - awesomely, pretty calendars for the taking, printing, pinning on your bulletin board, stuffin' in a desk folder, or magnetizing to your fridge until your heart delights.
So I am at working on the eighth floor of one on my favorite buildings in all of New York. And it is snowing! In a attempt to now let it ruin my stellar day today, I run out to treat myself to something that is both functional and fantastic. I decide on a winter hat from EMS, because I just got a ton of hair chopped off a few weeks ago and I am still not convinced of it. I see it as a mix of manly chick, soccer mom and that young girl short haircut that we all have had.
But oh my has that changed!
I am now a sex kitten, really I look so hot that I didn’t want to take it off. (Truth: I keep it on in the elevator while chatting and batting my eyelashes with this hot guy that works in the building) and it is all because of Coal’s The Stella Hat.
The picture above does not do the hotness justice - it is warm, soft and when tilted ever so slightly to the left gives off the perfect mix of "I am not trying" and "I just look this hot on my own" - there is not a person alive that doesn't want/need/crave/attempt to recreate that from time to time. Ladies, trust me on this one. And men, there are some head-turning, hot-increasing mens hat's here as well, so get on it!
Now, one thing that you should know about me is that I believe never strongly in the power of dressing and accessories, the right watch, shoe or bag can make any outfit. (this fact is epecially true for men – but that is another post) This hat - that I now own in mocha and rose - takes a ok haircut and takes it first-class into chic-ville.
Coca-cola has made a new iced tea to rival Snapple called Gold Peak - I tried the Lemon Flavored version - I like it.
But I really like their site - it has this hometown feel to it, under "golden tips" find recipes, and always updated tips, currently showing: how to skip a rock and my personal fav origami tips! Complete with printed instructions. How fun!
Her latest cool thing is a new blog called That's Hot - it will be the new home of the sweet finds that she comes into contact with...she has already posted about one of my favs...Millimeter/Milligram.
