skate regeneration

Many times I have difficulty walking without tripping over my own feet,
but I've always secretly wanted to skateboard like this.

ginger what?

I've never known why redheads get such a bad rap.
Is it their pale skin? freckles? or is it just because there aren't many of them?
Over the years, my ever changing hair color has landed me in this so called "ginger" category once or twice.
Just look at the list above...
Chuck Norris - kicks ass. (literally)
Molly Ringwold - the Brat Pack epitomizes cool
and seriously, who doesn't love a chimp?

"Guess what I do for adventure?" what? "I hang glide on a dorito."

oh andrea

1. I'm secretly wishing my name was ANDREA right now.
2. I just spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out if my own name
would work as a bike frame.
3. I just had a chuckle because I just thought of that annoying girl on 90210. Ahhhhndrea Zuckerman. The show really could have done without her.
I'm just saying.

tune of the week

Last week I went to see School of Sevens Bells,
and since then I can't get this song out of my head.

build anything

Build Anything from Studiocanoe on Vimeo

I seriously considered buying some Legos after watching this.

merci beau coup

There is NO doubt that I would look like a complete clown in these outfits; but I'm really digging the styling. Their patterns and silhouettes are playfully whimsical.

Japanese street style at its best...

Colorado 2010- round 2

Why is it that the work week drags on to eternity,
however vacation time flashes past in a blur???
Just a week ago, I made my second trip out to Colorado this year to visit my sis. Now that I'm back at work it seems like vacation has been over for months. :(
I'm wondering if someone would just pay me full time to travel?
Any takers?
Despite the seemingly quick trip, it was quite relaxing.
Sadly both my sister's and my cameras had broken, so we only managed a few phone pics.

We enjoyed a weekend full of farmer's markets, art shows, coffee shops, and mountain tops.
Pretty much all you need in life.

Amanda Wachob

If I had any guts at all...
I would want a full sleeve tattoo by Amanda Wachob.
Tattooing since 1998, Amanda is currently working out of Dare Devil Studios in NYC.
I'm drawn to many tattoo styles, but Amanda is producing some things I've never seen before. Taking fine art to another level and combining it with body art. The abstract watercolor strokes are beautifully GENIUS.

3-day weekend

A 3-day weekend has been MUCH needed, so I took off Saturday and headed up the coast to New Jersey. My bro is home for the summer, so I also took advantage of a rare brother/sister weekend. Besides visiting our grandparents lake, we decided to take a day a hit up our old stomping grounds in Avalon, NJ.
Growing up, we had the pleasure of both of our parents being teachers. That meant lots of vacation time in the summer. Every year Avalon, New Jersey was where it was at. The pleasures of the beach, but not nearly as crowded as some of the more touristy towns.
I decided that maybe next year I could find a house to rent so I could spend some quality time with the sand like the old days. I took a few pictures of houses that held up to our standards. What do you think? Not to shabby?
Oh, a girl can dream.

This bottom house was RIDICULOUS. We stopped across the street to take a picture and it looked like these bikers had the same ideas we had. HOLY COW!!! It was like an entire town. I figure if I could get maybe 50 of my friends together, we may be able to afford one night there.

In another lifetime, I want to be like Lykke Li.
How rad is she???

dream bike

Genius! Urban Outfitters has teamed up with Republic Bikes to offer completely custom bikes. There are two styles of bike frames and everything else you can make personal. Frame color, seat color, handle color, tire color. For some reason I tend to get suckered into every customizable product on the market. But, this bike may top the charts.
The two below are a couple color combos that I love. Just looking at them makes me want to be at the beach, cruising down the boardwalk.
