i got an email this weekend from one of our creative directors, merrie. she spends a lot of time in india, and shared this story with me about a little boy she befriended:
“this little boy’s name is anshu.
his family lives on the grounds of our friend kundan’s office and his father is the gardener.
kundan has developed a soft spot for him as he’s grown up because he is so ‘street smart’. he loves hanging with the big guys and doing what they do.
so, kundan decided to send him to a school that teaches english, which is the ticket to a better life in india. the school started only a few weeks ago, and we don’t know if the family will see the value of a good education over the years to come, but we are trying…hopefully it’s the start of something bigger.
i figured out no one had ever taught him his colors, so now everyday after ‘tutions’ he stops by our office and sorts my colors with me. (i work on my hindi, and he works on both hindi and english).”
One of our Facebook friends, Mia, spent the summer on a beautiful farm in Iowa. She and her father took lots of really pretty photos of her on the farm, modeling Free People clothes! She was kind enough to share the pictures with us, check them out!

Now for part two of the photos our Art Director, Doub, took on her trip to London!
While Doub was in London, whenever she was out walking on the street, she would take pictures of all the cute girls she saw! Click here to check out the first set!
Kieran, a 6 year old from Norfolk UK, not only painted the amazing watercolor above, but many many more! His paintings are just beautiful, and the fact that he’s 6 years old is incredible! Check out this little video clip about him below! It’s really cute and cool!
Our intrepid Art Director, Doub, recently returned from a business trip to London. While she was there, whenever she was walking on the street, she took pictures of cute girls that she saw! There were quite a few really lovely girls, too many to post all at once! Here is the first sampling… I’m loving all the floral prints!
