NO FOR REAL. ASK YOUR GRANDPA, CAN I HAVE HIS HAND-ME-DOWNS?

An 11 year old at my parents' reminded me how awesome Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's "Thrift Shop" is.
  


"Probably should have washed this, smells like R.Kelly's sheets. . . . Pisssssss. But shit it was .99Cents!"

Just now posting some belated San Francisco photos . . . God I love this girl, and this city.




Alden tiptoeing around the street mess in Hayes Valley. . . 
 The lovely Flora Grub where i wanted everything
 A perfect cappuccino from Ritual Coffee in Flora Grub. . . and the vintage hat I bought at The Painted Bird . . .  which I ended up leaving on the plane during my transfer in Newark : ( so so so sad about this.  



Salted Caramel of course!





I'm going to try and recreate this Alembic tequila drink for New Years Eve!! 

Amoeba let's me know what's cool.
Some of the amazing art at the Creativity Explored opening

NOORA LAPPI

IMAGE IS POWERFUL

A totally honest Ted-Talk by model Cameron Russell.  She nervously, but eloquently, addresses the prevalence of white-privilege, looksism, racism and insecurity not only in the world of modeling, but everywhere.  Post originally written for Volcomunity

WINE COUNTRY

   The second day of my San Francisco trip my sister Alden and I drove up to visit Scribe; her friend Andrew Mariani's winery in Sonoma(which he founded in 2007).  Alden has been working at their amazing member events for the past few years and it was really great to finally experience the place for myself.   

we quickly stopped into the Fremont Diner for their famous honey/butter cornbread before our tasting. . . it's tacky to get wasted at a wine tasting you know!   





impromptu photo shoot in the soon to be restored hacienda on the Scribe property







The hills are alive with the sound of music!! 

I just HAD to buy a bottle of the 2008 Cabernet that we had tasted.  Sadly I didn't know that United would be charging me $25 for my now needing to be checked bag. . .
