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.
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.
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…)
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.
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.
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.
