10-Year-Old Toes

I painted my toes today for the first time since I was about 10 years old. And to be perfectly honest it kinda looks like a 10 year old did it. But that’s okay, because at least they’re painted and with the summer weather slowly creeping up and the humidity upon us, open toe season has officially begun. Normally, I don’t care about painting my toenails and only ever get a pedicure when I can afford it. I currently can’t really afford a good pedicure, so I figured why not just do it myself? Usually…

Window Shopping, Irish Style

I guess you could say that I ‘stacked’ our trip with people who were awesome as well as super helpful. We had myself, Jamie – my best friend for the past 10 years and the coolest girl ever, Tyler – experienced traveler and gifted photographer and Jen – experienced traveler, wonderful photographer and super planner…

Tea Time

My sisters and I are planning a little tea party for ourselves, mainly for our younger sister since we haven’t had a chance to really hang out with her these past two weeks. So today we went “shopping” for a few things for the event and planned for what food we’ll make. We’re thinking of making cucumber and butter sandwiches like these for our afternoon tea (a traditional tea time sandwich). And of course, because I have to add design to my post and I’m talking about tea, here are some neat tea packagings…

Blackberry Deliciousness

When Sur La Table is selling a Cuisinart ice cream machine for $37 (including tax, which is now 10.25% in Santa Monica, by the way) one is not allowed to say no. Los Angeles’ hot, humid weather and the fact that we had just finished a gallon of Dreyer’s vanilla ice cream recently assured me that my decision to buy yet another appliance would only bring me true, everlasting happiness. When blackberries are 2 boxes for $4 at Ralphs, one has no excuse to not eat antioxidant and flavanoid-rich fruit. Clearly,…

Hydration Tips for Travelers

You know that 3 o’€™clock afternoon hour when you are dragging and all you want to do is close your eyes? Rather than reaching for the convenient caffeinated soda or that 5-hour energy drink, instead get up, shake it out and get yourself some water! Tim Kinlen, Certified Personal Trainer, says most people get tired around 2 or 3 in the afternoon and feel their energy level get low. The main reason for this mid-afternoon slump is…

Steven McQueen 2.0

Let’s get one exceedingly obvious thing out of the way: Steve McQueen has got it licked. He’s one of the few men that no one can argue (at least not without risking a verbal beatdown by any man within earshot) has got it together. He’s good looking, stylish in the most timeless way, and can do just about anything at any time, anywhere. He’s a man that all men should want to be like. Maybe not his addiction to T.V. and romance novels, but otherwise, he’s a model man. I once read somewhere that if you are a…

Considering the UK’s FutureEverything

I’m looking forward to FutureEverything, Manchester’s annual foray into everything digital. It kicks of a week on Saturday (May 14) at the Victoria Baths (where I once went to an infamous acid house party) which examines the intersection between contemporary craft and digital hacking. The events last for three days, exploring the overlap between art, digital and music. Steve Reich, Rob Da Bank and Beach House feature on the programme. There’s a full talkothon to go with it. Thursday’s my choice. Paul…

Intuitive Wayfinding in India

Internationally, the most successful wayfinding signage and environmental graphics are those that bridge the language barrier. Recently, in the airport in New Delhi, India I came across this example of restroom signage that clearly communicated the decision I had to make while being culturally relevant and without any literal verbiage. The use of large format graphics fulfilled the design ethos “go big or go home” and the use of bold color is almost always a positive thing in the sometimes sterile…
