Coucou Suzette

Give me all the things, abnormally obsessed with Coucou Suzette's enamel pins. She's terribly talented. Gimme!

My Melanin

My Melanin is a culture 
thats built on distress
ostracized by plenty
and mimicked by the rest
a group of minorities 
with ideal and ambition 
no measure of oppression 
can break our coalition 
a bond that we share
from being minority itself
on the path to succeed 
and live in wealth
we are an embellishment to society 
we shine in the dark
its the melanin in my skin 
that sets me apart
I carry the whips on their backs
with the rips in my hats
red for the blood and camo for the actions
mango for the light and stone for the memories
black for the pain that its caused for centuries 
-De`Montaz Brown

Artist Alert: Jen Oaks

I stumbled upon Jen Oaks body-posi illustrations on Etsy one day and they immediately cheered me up. Jen graduated from the Academy of Art with an MFA in Illustration; her 2016 Minx Calendar became a viral sensation and was touted as HuffPo, Bustle and The Daily Mail. Unfortunately the Pin-up cal is sold out, however there are plenty of lovely ladies in her print shop on Etsy

Etsy Shop Alert: Kate Zaremba

I haven't lived anywhere long enough to install wallpaper, even the temporary kind. Kate's designs are making me reconsider that decision. Her Etsy shop is full of beautiful finds, if you're a commitment-phobe when it comes to home decor you can purchase sample prints first.

Otherwild: The Future is Female

EXCERPT FROM OTHERWILD: The original “The Future Is Female” T-shirt design was made for Labyris Books, the first women’s bookstore in New York City, which was opened in 1972 by Jane Lurie and Marizel Rios. The photographer Liza Cowan took a picture of musician Alix Dobkin, her girlfriend at the time, wearing it in 1975. The photograph was done for a slide show she was working on called: "What the Well Dressed Dyke Will Wear"

25% of sale proceeds donated to Planned Parenthood, so why haven't you bought one yet? Otherwild's retail space is located in LA, they have tons of cute home goods, jewelry and unique ephemera online too!

Make This: Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Holy hell, these breadsticks are no joke. I've made them a handful of times now and they are a great snack and/or meal. They are gluten free and low carb but bathed in delectable dairy (i.e. cheese for daysssss). Super easy to make, ringing in with only 5 ingredients (cauliflower, cheese, egg, garlic/seasoning, plus more cheese). Perfectly comforting; praise you Jo Cooks for the simply satisfying cauliflower recipe.

Gravel & Gold: BOOBS

I've been obsessed with Gravel & Gold's BOOB series for awhile now, first spotted on SFGirlByTheBay a couple years ago I hunted these suckers down. I have yet to pull the trigger and order these glorious mammory adorned pillows but SOON. 

Gold & Gravel is an independent, women owned design collective based in San Francisco. 

Hispter's Rejoice: Letterfolk

Chalkboards are now passé, after adorning every hipsters home for the past 5 years there's a new kid in town. Enter the letter board, previously a kitsch staple in diners and quaint cafes these boards (which are apparently a pain in the ass to use) are infiltrating the home decor scene.

The people at Letterfolk have created beautiful boards, so if these are your jam support this family owned shop: Letterfolk

Anything for Selenas

A quick fun find from Free Faith, an online boutique full of 90's nostalgia. 

Drake on Cake

I've been neglecting my blog for a good reason, I GOT A NEW JOB. I've also been abnormally stressed out. What calms me during anxiety attacks? Cake, Drake on Cake to be specific. 

This project was created by Joy the Baker (who is awesome in general) this was a happy instagram discovery. See more of her series here: Drake on Cake
