Versace for H&M!

By now, everyone and their mother has seen the Versace for H&M lookbook. At first glance, I wasn't thrilled. A lot of it just ain't really my style. BUT some of the black structured numbers are pretty cool. And the palm print is fun! Here are some of my favourite pieces. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Happy Halloween!

Calling all Death Cab Fans:

If you're a fan of Death Cab, they're releasing a remix cd of Keys and Codes.  One song is released a day and two have already been unlocked.  Check them out here.

If you like art and also happen to like cooking then you're in the right place.  Check out these Carl Kleiner videos about the art of cooking.

Back To The Start

I saw this commercial last week at the movie theatre and thought it was super cool. Only at the end did I find out what it was advertising. Willie Nelson covered Coldplay for the soundtrack and (even though I hate Coldplay) all the proceeds from their iTunes sales go to the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, which supports sustainable agriculture and family farming. The film, by Johnny Kelly, tells the story of a farmer that turns his small farm into an industrial factory before "seeing the error of his ways" and returning to his sustainable family farm. I'm not entirely convinced that Chipotle is as sustainable as it pretends to be, but I am a fan of the commercial. Kind of cool, eh?

Pumped up kicks

Foster The People performance from SNL last week.  Check out the guy with the tambourine, keyboard, and shakers keeping mad beats.  I like that he's WAY into it.

Oh yeah and this one because it has Kenny G?

This is still so so great.  Every time I watch this video of impressions i'm so impressed by Kevin Spacey. Talk about voice modulation!  Mad skills:

Honk! fest

Last weekend I visited Azzara and Caroline in Boston for Honk fest.  If you can imagine 10-15 piece bands marching through Davis Square in really colorful clothes, playing huge instruments, and blowing bubbles then that's what Honkfest was.  And it was awesome.  I hope I can go back next year too!  Before that I'd gone to see the Susan Dackerman etchings exhibition at the Harvard museum so heading to Honkfest afterwards was pretty much the cherry on top of a super fun day.  I took a few pictures:

I love love love technology that is innovative, efficient AND attractive, so when I saw this video I was into IT. I love when beds hide into walls, things turn into other things and everything is super minimalistic and clean (the reason that I love Ikea... oh, and the meatballs obviously). It's exactly the way I'm going to have to furnish my future shoebox of an apartment. I love all of the brilliant ideas presented by Ron Barth, the president of Resource Furniture, in this video. 

How cool, right? Check out their website for more space-saving options! I'm so impressed!

Everyday Superhero

Hi guys, sorry I've been so MIA for weeks! Interning at the New England Aquarium has been so much fun, I seriously couldn't ask for anything better. Check out the marine mammal trainers' blog for some awesome pictures and videos of the new(-ish) sea lion pups Zoe and Sierra. How cute are they?! (& seriously, they're even cuter in person... so you should all come visit and see for yourself!)

On another (equally as cool) note, I wanted to share my love of the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. with those of you that aren't already obsessed with them. BSSC is an awesome shop based in Park Slope, Brooklyn that sells everything for your superhero needs... all in order to fund their children's learning centre in the back. How cool! Check out some of my favourite items below, available on their website or in store:

Haha just a cool $42 million for the invisible plane. No big deal, right? Except you can't even see it. But hey, it's for a good cause (don't worry, it's actually only $42 dollars when you order it... yep, I tried). Intelligence in a can, if only that really existed. I could use that for SURE. And for only $12.99. Such a bargain. So, if you ever happen to be in the Park Slope area, go check out Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co., the #1 Purveyors of High Quality Crimefighting Merchandise.

And come visit me at the New England Aquarium! The training sessions run all day every day and they sure are cool. I promise there will be more on that soon!
