Blog Love: Hipsters in Work Boots

An aptly-named great blog celebrating the iconic ironic style of hipsters in work boots.

I hope this scarf doesn’t get caught in my chainsaw today. I am about to do so much work, in my work boots. Yet my neck is itchy.


Pet Peeves of the Week:

My top five pet peeves for this week:
1. Drivers who slow down for green lights.  Green means go, a-hole.  Thanks for slowing down to a crawl.  Now we both missed the light.
2. The overly aggressive Spotify pop-up bubble. NO, I DO NOT WANT TO SHARE THIS TRACK.  I am embarrassed that I have listened to it 4 times already today. 
3. The new stupid Facebook timeline feature.  I already have such a like/hate relationship with Facebook.  This may push me over the edge.
4. That my two favorite perfumes ( Marc Jacobs Essence and Scoop Perfume) have both been discontinued.  BOOO!
5.  That it is cold outside.  Really flippin cold.  AND windy.  It's been a mild winter, which makes today all the more difficult to handle.


Web Love: Graham & Co.

I stumbled on a new favorite design site - Graham & Co.  A lovely a site where a small team of NYC creatives with good taste pull together design ideas and images.  I also adore that their motto is "living well is the best revenge." Well said, Graham.  Well said.

My favorite recent post: Houses made from Concrete. I'll take three.  Thankyouverymuch.


Obsession / Time Suck of the Day: Pinterest

I know I am a little late to the Pinterest party but holy crap is it ever cool! It allows you with the click of a toolbar button to select pictures from just about any website out there and arrange them on boards.  It's awesome.  It also seems to be especially popular with mothers, brides-to-be, and do-it-yourselfers.  And while I am none of these people, I dig it just the same.


Bag Love: Cambridge Satchel

I wish these bags were more readily available in the States (Minneapolis).  I love the idea of the embossed Classic.  Also so many lovely colors.  Oh, and to make The Cambridge Satchel Company even cooler, they make really awesome trunks too.


It's Snowing!!

Come on snow, keep it up!  If it's going to be cold, we might as well have snow.
