Post image for Download Our August Calendar!

I’ll admit it, I have been trying to pretend that today is not the first day of August.  I can’t believe how quickly this summer is going, and I’ve been enjoying it far too much for it to be nearing its end already.  That said, I’m also trying to tell myself that it’s not over yet… and to make the most of these remaining summer days while they’re still here. Cheers, August. Read more »

Post image for Celebrate Watermelon Day With Agua Fresca

There’s no other fruit that embodies summer quite like the watermelon. A warm-weather essential for gatherings and backyard parties, it seems only fitting that this iconic melon should have its own holiday, and this Sunday is exactly that: National Watermelon Day. You may not get the day off from work, but August 3rd is still a day worth celebrating. Read more »

This sucks - save your watermelon. Do not try.

holy smokes that looks so good! I will definitely be making these on sunday (but realistically i will use any old excuse to make a watermelon recipe)

Post image for 4 Tips For Purchasing a Vintage Film Camera

Behind the lens of my mother’s old, beat-up Canon AE-1 (forever known as “the student camera”), I fell in love with photography. Read more »

Thanks for the tips! I just bought a vintage camera. I still have to practise more to get some good experience, but it is very exciting to let them get developed and waiting for the results! It makes you look for carfully and it details when taking photos.

Perfect timing for this article! I've been thinking about getting a film camera for months now but I've never been able to fully commit. I'm definitely no photographer so I've always been worried that a film camera would be too difficult for me to handle. Luckily, I've found a lot of pretty cool sites and instructional guides online that seem like they are fool-proof enough for even this technology-daft klutz! :) Maybe it's about time to bite the bullet... P.S. It's probably also a good idea for anyone looking to buy a film camera to check that there's a location near them that develops the film. There are sites that also do it but I've heard that they can be more expensive and take longer than your local CVS/Walmart/what have you.

Post image for August Sneak Peek: The Magalog

No, that is not a typo – we’ve dubbed our August catalog the “magalog” because for the first time, we’ve compiled a book that is part magazine, part catalog! From editorial shoots to interviews with some of our favorite artists and icons, we can’t wait to share it all with you!  For now, here is a sneak peek at three of the trend stories featured in the book – featuring models Joan Smalls, Sasha Luss, and Martha Hunt.

Post image for Organic vs. Conventional: The Clean Fifteen

Last week, I shared Environmental Working Group’s 2014 Dirty Dozen: a list of the 12 fruits and vegetables that tested highest for pesticide residue – a group that, in my opinion, should really only be consumed if organic. Today I want to shed light on the happier end of the spectrum: EWG’s Clean Fifteen. Read more »

i completely agree with Chloe. i know in VA its pretty hard to find organic fresh corn, so i get it frozen. i do this because corn, even when its from local farms, is one of the top three GMOs. I would definitely be careful when purchasing corn that isn't organic or any product with corn in it that isn't organic.
Chloe -Jul 31, 2014, 8:40PM
it's kind of frightening that this post suggests that corn is one of the safer fruits and vegetables. If not grown organically, the corn itself is registered as an insecticide (thanks to Monsanto,who is directly tied to the government) Please inform yourselves before you take the advice above.

Jewelry is great. I stack up on antique silver bracelets and rings and don't take them off.

You can never have enough jewelry. Love the idea of multiple toe rings, looks amazing. I wonder if you can stack them on your toes as well. Toe rings are really a must for me during barefoot weather.

awesome list! may i just suggest a glass water bottle instead for infusing your nourishing h20? only because when the sun hits the plastic there's some yucky man-made stuff emitted into your water... and hummus and pretzels are def the shiz! xx
