The combinations of textures in these jewelry pieces are simply stunning. I love the mix of fabric, rope, and metal. All are from the fall/winter 2011 collection from Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer.

Roksanda Ilincic

"Ilincic’s inspirational collection ran the gamut from 1960s couture to grunge-era styling, but when it comes to choosing her palette, the designer prefers to go with her gut. The instinct for spring hues was spot-on." - VOGUE

I was so struck by all the colors of this runway show - I had to share a few of my favorites. And isn't that hot pink hair on model Charlotte Free just amazing?! I wish I could pull that off!

Crystal Necklace

I was instantly struck by this safety pin + crystal necklace. Love the big and boldness of it. It wasn't until I searched for the source that I discovered it was self-designed by the fabulous Karla's Closet.

Birthday Bowling Pin

When I was eight I had my birthday party at the Palo Alto bowl and they gave me this bowling pin, actually used on the lanes, with my name sharpied onto it. Seriously a super sweet birthday present! Do any bowling alleys still do this?!

Archival Rucksack

I came across this waxed canvas pack at a bike shop in the mission and was instantly struck by the detail and construction. It's made in the USA and designed by Archival Clothing, a small apparel company based in Eugene, Oregon. I think this is simply craftsmanship at its best!

Arnold Palmer

I've fallen in love with Arnold Palmer (the drink)! Ever since quitting my diet coke addiction a few months ago, this has become my new go-to. Although the official recipe calls for 1/2 iced tea and 1/2 lemonade, I like to favor the iced tea for a slightly less sugary refreshment! 

Tillman the Skateboarding Bulldog

This video makes me smile even after watching it for the 50th time. Enjoy!

Star Wars Cookies

Over the holiday weekend I decided I wanted to make some sugar cookies. And after remembered I only had one small cookie cutter, the idea to use our Star Wars pancake molds seemed like the perfect solution... and it was! I'm not a huge Star Wars fan (don't get me wrong I love the movies, I'm just not totally geeking out here) but this was the most fun I've had making and decorating cookies since I was little.

We used this recipe and made one Darth Vader, one Yoda, and lots of storm troopers!
