KNIT WIT //

In true KNIT WIT form I am off to Florence for PITTI FILATI Thursday, this is really the knit designers dream come true. A week in Florence, looking at yarns, dinners in the hills of Tuscany and hanging with our other knit-wit friends from NY, Stockholm, London and Hong Kong... And to top it off my boyfriend is coming with me and we are going early to relax on the beach in the Cinque Terre prior. Seriously, some chic attack business up in here. Anyway this is a little video that really gives you an idea what happens when a bunch of people (geeks) get together to look at yarn. It's not just a sweater, its love. So now, go hug your cashmere. Because I said so.

How cool is this? The late TOBIAS WONG created the concept of the NEW YORK TIMES candle that actually smells like newsprint!!! He was so genius.... oh and since we are on the subject, how cool is my friend ALEJANDRO's tattoo?? Alejandro is the awesome creative director of MARCIANO. See you in Florence Ale.

MEOW //

Dude, Nature is awesome. Have you seen a sexier animal? Me-owwwww! I was searching the web for snow leopards to pass to our Print Designer and I just about fell out of my seat when I came across this beauty. The coloring here is too good... you have to enlarge him to marvel in his true beauty. Ok I am an official cat freak. So chic.

A SERIOUS KALE SITUATION //

I thought I would share with you this amazing concoction I have discovered ... a GREEN smoothie that is so good but probably even so much better for you. Im not kidding, this thing is incredible. So here is how I roll:

In blender combine 1.5c Silk Coconut Milk, 1c Kale (remove the spine) and 1c spinach leaves. Blend. Add 1 banana and 1/2 a pear. Blend. Add a handful of ice cubes and a teaspoon of honey. Blend. Pour in a Mason Jar and enjoy the shit out of it.
