i love kevin bacon

It might be 30 years since “Footloose”, but Kevin Bacon (55!) still has all the moves. Watch this epic video from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, I’ll bet you can’t get the “Now I gotta cut loose Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes” out of your head all day!

herschel supply co spring 2014 collection

The Herschel Supply Co Spring 2014 collection is a collaboration with Californian artist Kevin Butler: Rad Cars with Rad Surfboards on Them. A limited edition capsule collection inspired by the rad Californian lifestyle.

herschel 2014 spring collection

Kevin’s Rad Cars illustrations harken back to his Californian childhood of sun drenched days at San-O beach, fixing old cars with his dad and working at the surfboard factory. From an early age, Kevin recognized old cars and surfboards as functional art, seeing the romance behind their craftsmanship. Several decades later, Kevin has nostalgically translated these two loves into a new art form with Rad Cars, striking a chord with fans worldwide. Each of Kevin’s cars topped with surfboards reimagines the surfer’s blissful commute to and from the waves. The air smells of sunscreen and surf wax and the tarmac is awash with sun bleached pastels and glowing chrome.

The collection includes Herschel’s signature backpack  in hues inspired by Kevin’s illustrations and with the Rad Cars print as an inside liner.

new york new york

We’re going to New York in a couple of days for an inspiration/business trip! The city that never sleeps, the big apple etc, one of my favorite cities in the world. We’ll be staying at the Ace Hotel in Midtown Manhattan for four nights. I can’t wait to see the beautiful collections at The Metropolitan Museum (the last time we went to NY we spend a day at the MOMA), vist the Playtime trade show, do some shopping in SOHO, we’ve made dinner reservations here and here and we’re definitely are going to have breakfast here. If you would like to tag along, be sure to follow on Instagram or take a look at the Pinterest map I’ve made. If you have any tips about anything we should check out while we’re there, be sure to let us know! Thanks! XO

distressed jeans

Remember this post? Well there is another trend I’m spotting a lot on the Pinterest My Style boards lately: Distressed Jeans. Yep, black/blue, skinny/boyfriend as long as they’re a little/a lot shredded. So what do you think of this trend? Been there done that in the nineties, or love it bring out the scissors and the sandpaper? I’m still undecided about this one so I would love to hear your thoughts.

3 things to do on your weekend

homemade bread

1. Make some homemade bread
It’s easier than you think and it doesn’t get any better. Use this recipe for Naan, make a dip and ask some friends over to play this game.

call your mother

2. Call your mother
My mother died almost 5 years ago from cancer and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her. So call her and tell her that you love her (I’ll bet she’ll make you some Naan after that). Or take her out to lunch.

frames bye bye charlie

3. Finally create your own frame wall
Got all this beautiful art standing against the wall? Use this great video to hang your own frame wall without the trial and error.
