Pics for Promises

I had the pleasure of meeting one of the photographers from Pics for Promises at this years San Diego Artwalk (of course I snapped up a print that I'm still obsessed with and that hangs prominently in my home).

Pics for Promises spotlights a charity every month and donates 25% of their proceeds; you can read more about their give back program here: throw kindness around like confetti 

In the meantime I'm bookmarking prints and clearing out wall space, show them some love and support a good cause!

Branding the Hillary Clinton Campaign

The forty-five pin collector set is a collaboration between the Hillary Clinton campaign and 45 graphic designers and artists. Each pin is unique and designed very well, it highlights the power of design. Artists include: Louise Fili, Gail Anderson, Debbie Millman and Paula Scher (just to name a few).

I want them all, see the full set here: 45 Pin Project

Also this is a pretty interesting article on FastCo with Jennifer Kinon, the Clinton Campaign Design Director: Behind the Branding of the Hillary Clinton Campaign

Moroccan Rugs

For the past year interior designers have been all about the moroccan rug. Their carefully handcrafted textiles feature colorful designs and intricate patterns. Coco Carpets is an online retailer that specializes in authentic Berber rugs from Morocco, by way of Los Angeles. 

Each Coco Carpet piece is designed and built by Azilal and Boucherouite people, your purchase helps support their community (which makes the hefty price tag worth it).

Shop the above rug here: Cosmic Girl

I'm also in love with this Broad Brushtroke pattern from Anthropologie and this more affordable (read: fake) version from Walmart Moroccan Trellis.

Mixed Emotions Club

On a recent podcast episode of Call Your Girlfriend, Tuesday Bassen talked about her designs, Zara's copyright infringement and not how not to hoard money. Immediately after it was over I rushed to her website and fell in love with all her pieces. She recently opened a brick and mortar dubbed Friend Mart in LA's China Town.

One Foot at a Time

Sometimes you need a little reminder, I love these socks from the online shop People I've Loved.
Based in Oakland, this woman owned business is pretty amazing. I'm adding this
butt pillow and this door hanger (for when the bf and I cohabitate) to the list. 

No. You cannot touch my hair.

I needed this at my old job. Srsly. 

When I decided to get box braids a few months ago I heard things like this from my corporate coworkers: 

"I have a hat like that, it's a Rastafarian hat. That's the closest I get to feeling hippie-ish." 

"That's definitely a different look for you."

"I still have hair envy, I may just get a weave myself and trip some people out"
