I’m in New York.

I came up to NYC to visit the rents for the weekend – As you read this I’m hopefully through the rumored longass lines to see the Rain Room at the MoMA.  The exhibit ends July 28th so there’s only a week left! I’ve heard mixed reviews… some people loved it and some people thought it was a waste of hours of their lives. hmmm…

While we’re on the topic of New York, I wanted to introduce you to the website:  Humans of New York

Humans_Of_New_York

Humans of New York is a project created by Brandon, a bond trader turned photographer, who goes around New York taking photos of people and hearing their stories.  In the section about the photographer, he says “I’ve taken nearly 5,000 portraits and written 50 stories. And I’ve met some amazing people along the way.

The captions under the photos are equally as awesome and fun to read as viewing the photos 🙂 Take some time and scroll through – maybe you’ll even see someone you know (I know less than 10 people in NYC but I can’t help looking for them)! The photographer even has a book coming out that would make a great addition to a lonely coffee table!

Hope you’re enjoying your Monday!

Style aspirations.

The website I’m showing you today sort of reminds me of “What I saw today,” the website I discussed yesterday…  only a girl version.

I want to be heris a blog that highlights a different women and their style each day. Sometimes the women are sketched, sometimes they’re photos. Sometimes they’re women the blogger knows, sometimes they’re women she simply saw in the supermarket & etc.

The main author of the blog, Andrea Linett, used to be a creative director for Lucky Magazine and is the current director of eBay Fashion. I felt a bond with her immediately when I read in the “About Us” section:

“…I want to be a different woman every day. Sometimes I see her on the street, sometimes I see her in a magazine, but I always want to try her clothes on even if it’s just for one day.”

Love that. That’s totally me. I often get bored with myself and feel inspired by other peoples’ style – even if it isn’t something I would ever consider (slash have the guts to wear). The other blogger, Anne Johnston Albert, is the illustrator and fashion designer. She takes Andrea’s self-described “notebook scratchings” and turns them into visions.

Each of the women featured on the blog get some kind of background painted about them and then different aspects of their style are highlighted. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally inspired. If only I had the funds to revamp my tired wardrobe!

Here are a few of my favorite looks:

Check out “I want to be her!” You may get some new style ideas! Which styles are your favorite?

Awkward…

Can I please tell you… one week from today I will be in Florida celebrating my birthday (big two four) with my brother, his girlfriend, BF and HARRY POTTER!!! I am a huge HP fan… and I seriously can.not.wait.

Since it’s Friday, I want to share with you something fun… I’ve shown you Awkward Santas, and I’m sure you’ve seen the Awkward Family Photos but have you seen…

Awkward Family PET Photos.

Awkward Family Pet Photos just shows animal lovers with their pets…

Do you have any awkward family or family pet photos?! I’d love to see them! I think the closest I have is our Tacky Christmas Sweater photos!

Have a great weekend!

I want one of those.

As you know I love finding online stores that sell super unique items… well guys, I have found another one. It’s called:

i want one of those is a website that is full of “unusual gifts, gadgets, gift ideas and toys.” It’s a great place to go to get  a gift for someone who has everything!  It actually reminds me of the SkyMall magazine you can find on airplanes (love those things).

You can even search for gifts based on: Occasion, Personality, Recipient, or Price!

Here are a few of my favorite finds:

haha Okay so maybe some of the products are just plain… weird. I think the site’s motto might say it all: “Stuff you don’t need but you really really want.”

Check out this website and see what kind of cool things are out there!

No hard feelings..

Good AFTERNOON! I know… late. I had a busy morning.

I’m going to share with you a blog that highlights very unique artists MULTIPLE times a day!

Hard Feelings Blog.

 

Like I said before, Hard Feelings features tons of artists from tons of categories, including: art, culture, design, features, illustration, music, photo, and rando (random, perhaps?).

The author of the blog created this website because…

Over the past handful of years, I’ve spent a lot of my time (+ company time, shhh) scouring the internet, trying to unearth every amazing + little known photographer, illustrator, designer + band on the planet. Most of my favorite artists are still hard to find.

I decided to start HF as a means to shine a light on some of these talented people + to encourage the readers (you) to share your work + gain some exposure.

He seems to kind of like… dark/weird stuff. But still, he has a lot of great finds and I appreciate him exposing me to different kinds of art and artists.

Check out some of his latest finds:

 

 

 

Check out his blog and enjoy!

Have a GREAT WEEKEND!! Wahoo! (LOVE those short weeks!)
