this video will make you think.

I don't think I can articulate the way this video makes me feel/think. So I won't.

What a beautiful life this is.

fashion inspiration: Alice + Olivia Spring 2011

I just love this line. That's all.

Steve McQueen

Is there a guy that exists who dresses like Steve McQueen and rides one of these?

My, my.


Living Past 55.

I've always been one who wouldn't mind dying young. In fact, getting old scares me more than anything. 55 always seemed like a nice age to go...I mean, at that point I will have travelled a ton, married some hot man who is starting to grey, might even have a few children. Seems about good time to move on.

Then Michaela showed me this video.

I can't seem to watch it enough. These women are so adorable, and I don't mean that in some patronizing manner. Each of them inspire me. They have a passion for fashion and self expression, and the confidence to wear whatever they want. Embracing the beauty that can only come from knowing ones self after many, many years of a life- they are unafraid to play. Life isn't over for them, there's more freedom in it than ever before. Must feel nice to just let go of the struggle to be seen as "sexy" or "desirable"...

This whole thing just makes me happy, but I think the part that makes me smile the most is who sent it to me. Michaela is one of my best friends. We've always tried to live together and it hasn't worked out..but there's this unspoken arrangement we've made and that is this: we'll be roommates in the rest home some day. Wearing depends, laughing at all the other old people, and bickering over who's music gets played. I can't wait.

So now, I'd like you to meet the women that have now given me a desire to live past my fifties. And here's to Michaela and I finally becoming roommates in our nursing home...

new set.....

Just a few pics of the most recent set I did for our Ladies night. I wanted to keep it simple + clean to tear down and set up each, the 8ft x 8ft canvas was painted in chalkboard paint and on the 6ft x 8ft's a collage and some artwork. The one with the painting is a "work in progress" to parallel the theme of the series, which is people's stories. We are all a work in progress, our stories are not finished. As the series continues, the painting will change and grow into what it will become in the end. Does that make any sense at all?

hope so.


Fashion blogger Atlantic-Pacific. Love how she mixes + layers while staying on trend.


art inspiration: A R I A N behzadi

So this is Arian Behzadi, he's a biological science major with an emphasis in neurobiology, physiology, and behavior at UC Davis. In addition to that, he spends some of his free time making these incredible designs. Loves it.
