I absolutely love the raw beauty of these richly colored images of age-old New York City storefronts from James and Karla Murray‘s book Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York. (I used to live right around the corner from this bicycle shop on E 17th!) Sadly, at least a third of the stores in the book have closed since its publication, making the photographs evoke even more feelings of nostalgia in New Yorkers, visitors and ex-pats alike.

The first week of the new year is almost over and man, has it been a hectic one. Our schedules have been insane but we’re working hard at creating some exciting new content and kick ass DIYs for you! I also finally got around to putting together some photos of Lauren and me in the Sierras last November, taking down the tepee on the most perfect fall day right before the arrival of winter. With some much needed man power, the canvas was taken down and is now tucked away until spring. Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!

I would never have considered wearing gold boots until now . . . love this look!

Legos were never my absolute favorite toy as a child . . . perhaps I was too wrapped up in Barbie and her Dream House. It’s a shame because these little bricks are honestly the best toy a kid (or adult) could have! I think I’m in for a Lego revival. Anyway, this video from Lego Click is awesomely wacky and I dare you not to smile while watching it. Make that a double dare.
