Space Pens are Chic, I Swear

Surprisingly (or not) Space Pen is pretty on-trend. Astronauts, tie-dye (titanium nitride to be specific), bullet casings, what will they come up with next? Shearling, I hope.

Nuts and Bolts

I love this picture of Hanneli taken by Maria of Vanillascented. I almost started making jewelry like these bracelets by Yvonne Koné and now I'm pretty upset I didn't and also fully planning on going to the hardware store this weekend.

Coney Island

Earlier this summer we took a little trip to Coney Island on one of the hottest days of the year. Up close, the beach has this gross sort of beauty that is super colorful because it is super crowded. The further away you get, down the beach to the left or down the pier, the quieter and more relaxing it becomes, but you loose the true sense of Coney Island. Truth be told, we didn't spend the day meditating on beauty. We spent it stuffing our face with Nathan's corn dogs and running across the sand fast enough not to burn our feet (to the mocking cheers of fellow beach-goers).
