Who doesn't remember the Olympics because of Michael Phelps? He kept us glued to our TVs night after night as we watched in disbelief, history being made. As a fellow swimmer, I came to appreciate Phelps not because he is an American hero but because of the journey it took for him to get there.… Continue
New ad campaign just launched for search engine Ask.com. Creepy if you ask me but I think it's sure to generate some buzz. Nice how they took every day questions and turned it into something interesting. "Why do I have so much gas?" Classic!…
What's the secret, dear Annie, to looking as chic as you? Perhaps, it isn't shopping at Banana or J. Crew but it's finding something a little more unique with just a bit more pizzazz at an independent design and gift show!
There is something so simply beautiful about Douglas Walker's paintings. It could be that he only paints using the colors blue and white or that his works evoke a memory of your parent's Chinese paintings hanging in your old house.
He tells us that he's inspired by so many things, "suspension bridges, landscapes by J.M. Turner, paintjobs on funnycars,… Continue
Alright friends, help a sister out on this one. The club kid in me loves this hoodie but the 32 year old in me thinks my sorry ass is too old for this. Comfort and a little sparkle? Only problem is....where the heck do you wear this?…

As you can tell by a lot of my posts, I have a thing for vinyl toys in fun human-like predicaments. This set by Andrew Lee just cracks me up. If anything it is inspiring me to start up my vinyl toy collection again and dust off my camera. And it shows me that people have some really creative imaginations out there! You can see Andrew's… Continue
Let's say you're coming into LA and you need a place to stay. You want something simple and sexy, functional but fun, a place that has free wi-fi but a kick ass pool. You'd love to stay the W in Westwood or the London in West Hollywood or the Huntley in Santa Monica but you'd rather save your money so you can do a little Christmas shopping at the Grove. So what do you… Continue
Paper+Cup is a stationary store that was started by a few old friends in New York. What I love most about their products is that they're simple yet elegant. Their silhouette labels, cards and journals have that modern vintage feel to them. Sam and I ordered up this line for our rehearsal dinner gifts and we couldn't have been more happy. So, if you're looking for… Continue
Sure there isn't anything like picking out a shiny new vehicle and racing it around the neighborhood but what if you want to customize your ride? BMW has partnered with Microsoft to bring you the Product Navigator - a futuristic touchscreen that lets you pick a BMW, modify colors and content, and even save the finished project to a thumb drive to take home with you.
I wasn't that impressed with the video except when they dropped a block on it and it changed… Continue
It's great when you read about a graphic designer who's able to turn his art creations into something people can enjoy ever day. As a hobby, Glenn Jones, a graphic designer and illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand, decided to submit some of his designs to Threadless a few years ago and as they took off he then went one step further and… Continue
I was talking to Sam today and I saying, "You know, it would be fun to have some sort of trademark. Maybe I'll buy some funky tights." And then, I saw these. As you can tell by our MMM chandelier, I'm into that kind of design but I'm just not sure if I'd wear it on my leg.
So I'm asking for your help. Too cool or "Alice, you'll be looking like a… Continue
I am love with these lamps that cast these amazing these shadows on ceilings and walls. Created by Peter Buning, of Germany, the SHA-DO-lamps aim is to illuminate the environment through individual shadow pantomimes. "The creation of the light is as important to the lamp as the design is. The lamps can be adapted to their environment because of their flexible… Continue
