Peskimo has introduced Special Brews, a series of hand-screened prints based around tea and its seemingly endless varieties. The initial series includes five prints, based on animals and beasts. Each print is signed in an edition of 80. Love the Oolong one.

Photos from Leila Jeffreys' project titled Wild Cockatoos, which features birds found in Australia. The photo series focuses on capturing the character of the birds and not just their beauty. The project took two years to complete.

Pieces from the fall/winter line from Ban.do. It was hard to choose what to feature here since everything is just so amazing and sparkly. Every item would be great to elevate your holiday party outfit (or just to dress up your outfit any day of the week)!

More than a little obsessed with the items that Everlane keeps releasing. I have one of the original releases of their backpacks and couldn't be more happy with it. But, I'm really, really liking this silk blouse they just put out. It's the most perfect, timeless silhouette in three great colors. Purchase it for $80 here. They also have the best assortment of classic tees, sweatshirts, bags, and accessories, so be sure to take a look.

An interesting and inviting interior in this Byron Hamburgers location at Charing Cross Road in London. Byron is a boutique hamburger restaurant chain built with a fun concept, where the interior design and signage of each location is designed differently to reflect the local character of each area. Designed by Michaelis Boyd Associates.

Ban.do is gearing up to release their new fall/winter line soon, so starting today, you can get 30% off all spring/summer merchandise with the coupon code GOINGGONE. I love all of their fun accessories, and they would be a welcome pop of shine or color to fall's muted tones. Here are my picks.
[ Above: Ahoy Headwrap, $24.50 / Happy Pack, $10.50 / Chiffon Girlie Bow, $17.50 / Glitter Bobbi Set, $10.50. Also, not pictured, and not part of the sale, but after my phone got stolen, I got their heart iPhone case for my new phone and I love this thing. Purchase here, $25. ]

I danced ballet when I was growing up, so when I came across these photos from Ballet Zaida on Instagram, I pretty much had to go through their entire feed. It makes me wish a little bit that I hadn't ever quit. Ballet Zaida was created by Oliver Endahl, a former ballet dancer, and is an ongoing fine art project showcasing photos with the best ballet technique.

I have really been neglecting this blog lately, I'll admit that. I broke my clavicle in May, had surgery two days later, and was basically not feeling like myself for a few weeks after. I think the accident and being stressed made it all too easy to stop blogging for a while. I feel like I'm pretty close to 100% now, so I'm hoping to be back soon. I'm going to put the blog on a small break, but I'm aiming for regular posts again by late August or early September (but there could be a few random posts before then). Thanks for reading!

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you might have noticed the minimal posts as of late. It's because since December, I have been working on marks/collectible stamps for National Parks by National Geographic, an app for iPhone that launched early yesterday. The initial launch has guides for 20 national parks, so you can see 20 of my marks there (37 more on the way in a later update!). Though I only did a small portion of the entire project, it was super fun and rewarding. The guys over at Rally Interactive did an amazing job with everything. They've created one of the best looking, most functional apps I have seen. I'm so glad I was able to be a small part of it. Get it here.
Hengki Koentjoro is a photographer living in Indonesia. He's driven by the desire to explore the mystical beauty of nature, and develops his sense and sensibility through the elements of fine art photography. I love the way his photos evoke such a grand feeling of place and moments. More here.

Absolutely loving these nautical-inspired bracelets from Kiel James Patrick. Their sailor rope bracelets are hand-braided in Rhode Island using locally twisted cotton cord in weathered colors.

I apologize for the lack of posts recently. I've been super busy with a really time-consuming (but exciting!) freelance project and needed to really just slow down everything else and get a handle on it. I feel like I'm getting into a rhythm with that now, so hopefully posts will pick back up here, starting with this great print series by Borja Bonaque, titled Square, Circle, Triangle, and features urban landscapes in basic shapes. Screen-printed in two colors, black and metallic gold, in an edition of 60.

Another new film from Kevin Dart (directed along with Stéphane Coëdel) for Persol Sunglasses. The art, the animation, the music... it all works together so well! I love this style. See the whole video here.
My want of the week is for winter to hurry up and leave so I can ride my motorcycle again! I came across this photo earlier in the week, and it made me really wish spring would come so I can get out there and ride.

I was invited to participate in Chris Streger's To Resolve Project this year, and decided to make my resolution something that was a little more attainable. Eat more fruit. I love fruit, so I think it will be an easy and achievable goal because it's tasty and I don't have to work as hard to make it happen. Here's to more fruit in 2012!
