Donny Nguyen Sketches

Posted in Art, People by Michelle on September 6, 2010

I came across this amazing Albatross sketch the other day by Donny Nguyen when I was researching The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Visit his blog at [ donny draws ]. This is exactly the reason why I started this blog – so that whatever I find interesting, I don’t have to forget.

Here’s another sketch he made of one of the most awesome bands everrrr…. Crystal Castles!

His drawings are evidently oozing of talent. As in the words of Rachel Zoe, “I love.”

McQueen’s Patchwork Calamity Sneakers

Posted in Shoes by Michelle on February 19, 2010

I’m not a sneaker person. The only pairs I have are…. black Rebook soccer sneakers that hurt, classic Pumas that are falling apart, Nike Shox that I “work out” in (i.e. walking to the supermarket), unworn tweed herringbone Converse’s that are too big, classic white Keds-like flats I bought from Target, and slip on Vans that are somewhere in Jersey.

Those Vans revolutionized my feelings for sneakers. I need to replace them! Possibly? With these??

At £315.00, probably not.

Multi-function Design Table

Posted in Gadgets / Gear by Michelle on October 18, 2009

I can’t even begin to think of how this is possible. Every year we get one step closer to life imitating the movies. I think I want one. And when I’m not using it as a monitor, I can use it as a sewing table. Right on!
