Clever Taco Stand

I know that everyone loves tacos, and they especially make for great shots on instagram. Comparing it with another food, it’s like a hamburger..who doesn’t want to eat one? I love all kinds, even Taco Bell serves a mean one, it is hard to go wrong, I mean I’ve had ‘bad’ tacos but at the same time, tacos can never be ‘bad’ right? Even bad tacos are good in the end, at least for me. Recently I came across this taco bar from Food and Wine Magazine, and it’s something I wanted to share right away just because it’s a clever party idea. You’ll never guess that this bar isn’t bought from some fancy store, they are actually those crown moldings used for home interiors you get at Home depot, they just sliced them into small slabs and placed them on top of this wooden box. I thought it was a chic way to present tacos. And it makes for easy taco building too considering those little ditches…

Waffle BLT

It’s Friday, and I can’t make any crazy promises. That I won’t pick up some Moet tonight would be a lie. Or that I won’t start my morning off with a bang. And this morning I need this, a waffle sliced in half with bacon (almost burnt, crisp of course), lettuce, and sliced tomatoes. But I do promise that I won’t consume a BLT without KEWPIE Mayo.

iPhone 5 Purses

If you can remember a while ago I designed those iPhone wallet necklaces…and now it was time for a purse that could fit the iPhone 5, plus a little wiggle room. Meaning you can fit more stuff in there, and wear it as a purse.

Looking forward to 2013!

This was a weird year for me, fun, but weird. And I always prefer the New Years time over Christmas, only because New Years gives you another clean slate. And Christmas is a great break time for me, I like to relax and take some time off from work..it’s been kind of nice to stay away from the ‘internet’ and even instagram…Recharging my batteries, that’s what I like to celebrate during the holiday season. Catching up, eating good food, family, friends, etc. And in this post a timeline of some of my favorite posts this past year. I did this last year too but it’s nice to have a yearly roundup. (more…)

Black and White, Perforated

I sincerely hope everyone is having a happy holiday, spending it with their families..on vacation, at home eating good food and wine..or doing something that makes you excited, though I know that there are a good deal of people who struggle during christmas and new years, and a good deal of people who spend it alone, …to those people, don’t worry it will all be over soon!

Anyways, in response to some e-mails I’ve been getting about these black and white perforated wallet necklaces, they are back in stock. It has been a best selling item (thank you for the support!), and you will find them here. They are listed 1st and 2nd amongst all those wallet necklaces in different patterns and colors so you don’t have to go digging. Sorry for the bad blogging, promise there is new stuff coming soon. In the meantime keep up with my liveblog here.

Leather: A charistmatic uniform

Without even knowing it, about a year and a half ago I designed a wardrobe simply out of necessity, if you could remember this set of clothing where I just changed the colors and patterns. At the time I also felt like I didn’t want to force any new ideas, ‘if you don’t have a new idea, don’t pretend like you have one’ was my feeling at the time..and then I just thought well I like wearing the same thing everyday anyway so I might as well… I needed some kind of uniform to make things stable, and I love this idea of things repeating in exactly the same pattern…Which led me to think..is it really a uniform I want? Maybe it doesn’t have to be forever, but for a sustained period of time, it was exactly what one wanted. Somehow a set of four men wearing the same outfit makes for a powerful image.

LXR Keychains

For the holidays, some considered keychains…Last december, I never really thought about what would make for reasonable gifts, but this year I wanted to focus on small items that everyone can play with. I should have posted this weeks ago but the hectic holidays have really set me back!

Perilla Wraps

porkbelly

Now I would like to introduce you to the cousin of Shiso Leaves…Technically both the korean version and japanese version are called Perilla Leaves, but the korean cousin is what you would call a sesame leaf instead of Shiso. I can’t put this flavor into words but it’s a mintier, more aggressive version of the Shiso. It also tastes less like perfume, which is something I enjoy at times. The silicon placemat is by Dan Golden for CB2. I couldn’t find the link online, you might have to go to the physical CB2 stores.
