The 200 Pound Turban

This is quite possibly the best thing I’ve stumbled across in recent months. Check out how how Baba Avtar Singh, a Sikh living in Northern India, ties his famously large turbans. Mr. Singh uses 2,460 feet of fabric and 100 pounds of weighty silver adornments to create his masterful symbol of Sikh pride – and still manages to walk and ride his motobike ever so gracefully. Watch the process. It’s the most beautiful sight . . .

& Other Stories x Vans

We love it when two mismatched brands unexpectedly come together for killer collaboration. Feminine European label & Other Stories just released a capsule collection, in conjunction with California favorite Vans, that consists of three leather sneakers that include Slip Ons splattered with polka dots and Old Skools in a perfectly neutral blush shade. So good. And by the way, I still plan on rocking Vans when I’m 86, just like model Daphne Selfe.

DIY Embroidered Photo Books + Artifact Uprising Giveaway

It’s hard to believe that our little munchkin will be turning 2 in just a couple months. Where did the time go?! No, honestly. I know it sounds so cliché but I am constantly in awe of how quickly Quincy has been growing and learning and how easily I can sometimes forget when even the littlest yet still significant moments happened in the past 22 months. Just the other day, I was looking through photos on the computer – of moments captured during his first few minutes in the world, his first laugh, his first taste of real food, and his first steps. I was immediately overcome with heartfelt nostalgia and a sudden determination to get those photos off the screen and into something tangible and personal. So after sorting all of my most lived photographs by month, I created 2 gorgeous soft cover photobooks on Artifact Uprising, my absolute favorite destination for high quality photo prints. And of course, they also inspired me to add another personal touch – embroidery! It’s just a little something that makes these prints and books that much more special. So follow along as I show you how easy it is to do. And, stay tuned after the jump for a giveaway with Artifact Uprising that should not be missed . . .

Taste Buds: San Francisco

Travel feeds my soul. And the best part about exploring a new place is tapping into what the locals love to do – where they shop, where they eat, and what to do. So when Jessica Jardine & Krissy Wall, the adorable hosts of Taste Buds Travel, hit me up as they made their way through San Francisco, one of 8 stops on their country wide tour, I was more than delighted to share with them one of my favorite places to shop: Stuff. If you live or have visited San Francisco and haven’t been to Stuff, let us prepare you for 17,000 square feet of vintage amazingness, curated by over 60 different vendors! It’s a vintage lover’s paradise. Honestly. Check out the video below as the girls and I spend the afternoon doing what I do best. Shop.
