Post image for Dare To Defy Convention: Show Your Straps

We’ve been told for so long that allowing our bra straps to show is faux pas, to be avoided at all costs. But why hide something that can be so beautiful?  Read more »

Too bad every bralette that I've found are for smaller breasted women. Ladies with big boobies like to be stylish too!

Love the different ways to show off the cute straps.

Sorry for posting anonymously, it was me who forgot to state my name because as you can tell, Australian winter really impressed me:) Wandering Polka Dot

If winter in Australia is such that one can wear shorts, I want to move there straight away, even though it's so far away! (I'm from Europe) Lovely photos! Wandering Polka Dot

Post image for Monday Quote: What You Feel

“Your worst battle is between what you know and what you feel.”  Read more »

I actually think this is misleading. Our feelings can be very inaccurate. Our feelings are not always something we should follow. Sometimes, we must go on what we know. Just because we think or feel or believe something doesn't mean it is true. Girls with anorexia who are extremely underweight. But that doesn't mean she needs to lose weight. A man may feel like he should break up with his girlfriend, but it may be that, deep down, his feelings come from fear of commitment or rejection. A fear of commitment is no reason to end a good relationship, but if that man were to follow his feelings, the relationship would be over.

There’s nothing better than cooking out on a grill in the summer, and eating beneath the late-day sunshine as it dips below trees.  Read more »

This is the second time in two weeks that I hear someone mention halloumi. It sounds so good, where can I get some of it?? I haven't seen a Greek store near me :( the kale and the burger both look really good. Great recipe!

As a vegan, is there a substitute I could use for the egg in this recipe? Looks delicious, would love to try the vegan version :)

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 »

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 »

Oliver Filippi -Oct 12, 2014, 12:55AM
Julie, Why not dust off your Great Grandfather's Rolleiflex? They are built like tanks and have excellent lenses. There is a Rollei mechanic in Southern CA who can overhaul them and have them functioning like new. {If you want his contact information, e-mail me off line.}. Note that in the 50's, most of the fashion magazine photographs were shot with Rolleis. If you want a 35 mm camera, don't mess around. Get the BEST - a German LEICA. They are extremely rugged and reliable, as well as have the BEST lenses. Older, used ones, are affordable. [A 1960 vintage 50MM f/2 Summicron lens will, even today, take any 50 mm non Leica lens to the cleaners - even though it was designed without the help of a computer.] Leica lenses are known for their sharpness and contrast, even at full aperture, and in the corners - wide open at f/2. Once you use one, you will be hooked. Here too, I can give you the names of a couple of expert Leica mechanics. Parts are still available. With the Leica, you can go with an M-3 rangefinder style, or an SLR starting with the R-3. (I would go with an R-4, but there are several R-4 models, as the camera was improved during its production run. The SLRs have an internal light meter, as do later model Ms. If you decide to go with the R-4, e-mail me off line and I can advise you as to the sub model and serial numbers to look for. For more info on Leicas, go to Kenrockwell.com.. Ken had Nikons and Canons, but has seen the true superiority of Leica. Sadly, the current Leica models, though very good, are VERY VERY EXPENSIVE, Most photographers cannot, or do not, comprehend how truly superior Leica shots are, compared to those taken with other 35s. I can give you many examples, but the following is typical: Many years ago, I met an elderly couple at the San Diego Zoo refreshment stand, each with a Leica R hanging from their neck. I commented to them that I seldom see folks with Leicas. - let alone two. They told me that they had gone on a trip to the Great Barrier Reef with a club they belonged to. One of the members used a Leica. When the club reconvened after the trip, they all brought their slides and had a screening. The Leica shots were very noticeably better - even though many were taken of the same subjects from essentially the same spots, with the same film and exposure. They asked the Leica photographer, "Why are your pictures so much better?" His response was, "It's the camera." So these folks went out an bought Leicas, and have been happy with the results ever since. As a transition from film to digital, you might want to try using Kodak Ektar color negative film and when you have it developed (I use Costco) have them digitize the pictures and write them to a DVD (CD). Then you can manipulate the photos in the same fashion as if they were shot digitally. Note that Ektar film was specifically designed to record images for subsequent digital processing. Ektar film has very fine grain, and is very sharp. Please let me know if you try any of my suggestions.

This post makes me think: What is a home? Or what makes a home? For me, it's exactly something like this: a place with a soul and what is the most important, with memories hanging on the wall and hidden on the shelves, with all those books, souvenirs, prints and flea market treasures. For my boyfriend, its something that looks perfectly modern and preferably cold enough, (something like this) with empty walls or a bit of futurism and to be honest, when I see such interiors like Xochi's I just cannot imagine living in a different space. Especially the second picture is something like in my dreams...

I love that hanging wood + air plant combo! My husband and I own Air Plant Design Studio and we love seeing new ways to decorate with them. Free People is personally one of my favorite brands and I was pretty excited to see your take on them - awesome! To answer Clara's question above, air plants don't need to grow roots. The "roots" that you sometimes see on them are not used to take in nutrients but rather for when the plant is in the wild and wants to attach itself to something (like a tree). Sometimes we'll remove them from our plants for a cleaner look but if you have one without, they won't likely grow back. We have an informative section on air plant care on our site if you need any additional information! :)
