New Sunglasses For A Long Hot Summer

06/20/2014

I’m fairly obsessed with sunglasses although I actually own very few at the moment. My most recent pair is the Firmo FS1009, not the most catchy name but a pretty great pair of new sunglasses! The first thing I noticed about them was how high quality they felt. They came with a great little case covered in a world map pattern, a cleaning cloth and a cloth bag (my primary holder for them). The lenses are…

The unique and quirky designs of Benefit cosmetics

04/19/2014

The philosophy behind Benefit cosmetics can be summed up in their tagline, “Who says makeup has to be serious to look good?” This idea has influenced their design choices and packaging for several decades, ever since the two sisters started the company back in 1976.

Feeling Vintage – Movie Star Style, Thrift Store Grace

04/10/2014

Vintage fashion never really goes out of style (as you probably noticed). Whether it’s just one piece you wear, an entire ensemble or merely the setting you surround yourself with in a photo, no one can deny the appeal of the vintage look.

Photo of the Day: Luna in Taipei

04/08/2014

Luna was walking with a friend by the streets of the Shida night market in Taipei when I met her.
