Beginnings brought us together

Here we are, watching as another year comes to an end like that of a spectator scarecrow to its annual sport. It's frightening, exhilarating, and hopeful as I advance at the thought of so many new possibilities. It's strange though, because it almost feels like it was just yesterday that 2009 was ending, and now at the crossroads of 2010, it too pulses its final, melodic moments... moments that will inevitably find us years later.

There's been a wealth of changes this year, both good and bad. And some I've shared with you, while others were placed in a secret treasure box, tired and dusty. Breathing, laughing, crying, loving, and aching through and with new understanding, I've faced unforeseen circumstances valiantly, felt insolvent to the ennui of habit, astonished with reverie and expectation, cheered at new publications, joyfully-overwhelmed by an artistic proficiency I didn't even know existed, smiled in light of novel words and poetry, broke up, woke up, made up, lost love, found love... and made love. I've said hello to fluency and goodbye to those I never imagined would be absent from my life. I adopted a new puppy, and my mom... a new son.

So to the New Year that impatiently awaits us, I welcome you. And to all my family, friends, readers, followers, and those nearest and dearest... thank you for your continued support and unyielding compassion through yet another awe-inspiring year. I'm grateful.   
 Cheers to 2011!

Brooklyn cinder block

I want to tell you about Max Steiner, one of my favorite new designers whose visionary buoyancy sheds new light on his innate talent to see outside the box. When I was first contacted by Max, about a week ago, I did what anyone would do. I browsed his website. And as an artist, was instantly drawn to the various elements of his inspiring collections. Conceptualizing the simplicity of paper folding, Max tells me, "Folding paper since I was five years old has led to my ORIGAMI collection, one of my most popular. Working in an industrial neighborhood in Brooklyn has led to the development of the CINDER BLOCK collection." And the results are flawlessly executed. Not only does he incorporate an organic wearability through his architectural jewelry, but the fact that he does so with such an influential voice of his everyday surroundings, adds an extraordinary amount of intimacy that's hard to come by. Thank you, Max for my rad new cinder block necklace. I sorta refuse to tak…

The Leather Satchel

When Gail from The Leather Satchel Company contacted me with the amazing opportunity to choose a satchel of my choice to review, keep, and love forever I practically fell out of the chair. I'd been lusting after one of these gorgeous bags for the longest time, because while it may sound a bit unconventional, I thought it perfect for gallivanting about the sculpture park with my trusty writing supplies  swinging idly at my side. So like a springboard into the sea of opportunity, I leapt at the idea of writing about how much I adore the vintage aesthetic and sinuously detailed structure that creates an effortlessly downtown sophistication.
A family company since the late 1960s, The Leather Satchel Company strives for high-quality standards that are evident down to the stitch by their meticulously crafted leathers. What's even more amazing about these "quintessentially British" satchels is the assortment of available colors (dying over neon pink) and the 5-year artisan …
