The countdown to the holidays has officially begun. And so begins our series of gift guides, each chock full of some of our favorite tried and true items from 2011 and of course, a few products on our own wish lists. First up: some gift ideas for the urban girl . . .
Lauren and I have been experimenting with double exposure photography, thanks to a recent workshop we attended and an exciting upcoming project (much more on that later). In the meantime, check out these multiple exposure photographs by photographer Doug Keyes, capturing city life from all over the world.
It’s been nearly four months since Zara‘s e-commerce site launched in the US and surprisingly, I had yet to make a purchase online until last night. There’s nothing like the claustrophobic fear of venturing outside and shopping during the holidays to help motivate some click and buy action. Plus, these geometric printed trousers and floral blouses were screaming my name!
I’ve been dreaming of creating a vertical garden next spring – the only obstacles are that I currently don’t have the wall space or a green thumb. So until I overcome those hurdles I might just snatch up a few of these beautiful hanging tillandsia gardens, from San Francisco based Flora Grubb, which require minimal tender loving care. Baby steps . . .
Brrrrrr, it’s chilly outside. It’s time to sort through your collection of winter hats, ear muffs, and knit headbands for some necessary protection for that noggin! But before you toss out your favorite slouchy beanie from seasons past, why not revamp it by stitching on a large, furry* pom pom?
* I appreciate the very valid concern about animal cruelty and I hope we all share the same compassion for animals. I would never knowingly point readers to fur that was produced under the conditions mentioned by a couple of commenters. I have changed the link so that it points to faux fur in the hopes that anybody who decides to do this DIY chooses that alternative.
