Post image for Morning Glory Toast

There is no meal I love more than breakfast. Maybe I’m a bit too enthusiastic, but I truly believe it has magical powers – who’s not happy after a delicious morning meal, right? Case in point, my “Morning Glory Toast.” It’s a simple recipe that I made up the other day to cheer up my roommate and best friend who was having a rough weekend, and it was a big hit! I think it made her feel a little better & hopefully it can bring some sunshine into your lives too. =)

Ingredients:

1 Slice of multigrain bread

1 Egg

¼ Avocado

3 Half slices of tomato

Salt & Pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Grease skillet and crack an egg into it. Cook the egg sunny-side-up style. Salt & pepper egg while in pan.
  2. While the egg is cooking, place bread in toaster, slice tomato, and cut up avocado.
  3. Once toast is ready, spread avocado, place tomato slices on top of avocado, and then top it all off with the sunny-side-up egg.

I like to slice the entire thing in half and pair it with a glass of OJ. Hope you like it!

our third aussie guest blog post comes from another favorite of ours, the lovely liss of daydream lily!

One of my favourite things about life in Australia is summer road trips!

Open roads, windows down, making a mix for the trip, road stops in little country towns for coffee and muffins, stopping off to explore, documenting the trip….
bliss!

It’s all in the details!

Accessories jazz up any outfit ensemble. I’m addicted to adding a quirky belt and an unusual necklace to any outfit.
Us girls here at the office love accessories especially rings, and I’m always blown away by some of the collections people have.
People style in the office yesterday was on fire.

Having style does not necessarily mean dressing up everyday or wearing fancy clothes. Accessories are a great addition to any outfit.

Post image for Happy Earth Week

This week is Earth Week, so I thought I’d bring you guys a post about our lovely home and some tips for living in harmony.

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.

- D. H. Lawrence

somethingterriblehashappened

as we celebrate our beautiful home this week, here are some simple things you can do to give back to planet earth. Remember, the earth is what you make it…

    1. Cut down on waste: By using a reusable water bottle/coffee mug, or buying a mesh/cloth coffee filter for your coffeemaker you can significantly reduce the amount of waste you produce.
    2. Clean your clothes smartly: Wash your laundry in cold water instead of hot and line dry as many pieces as possible (especially linens) to save energy.
    3. Make your own cleaning products: Rather than products with harsh chemicals, did you know you can make your own with ingredients you most likely have around the house? Combine baking soda and vinegar then flush with boiling water to clean out clogged drains. Lemon juice is great to remove mildew and corn starch can be used to deodorize carpet.
    4. Conserve Paper: Use both sides of a piece of paper in order to print things out. Instead of throwing away used paper, keep a pile of scrap to either print or write on.
    5. Buy Local: By purchasing locally produced meat, produce, and dairy products you can cut down on pollution. Not only do the goods not have to travel as far (car, train, airplane pollution), but it also doesn’t need as much packaging or preservatives.
    6. Use your legs: Whenever possible, walk or ride your bike.  it’s better for you and it’s better for the planet! If you must drive, try to carpool and consolidate trips.
    7. Know your impact: It’s good to know how green you are living. By calculating your carbon footprint you can also learn the areas in your life that could use improvement. There are a lot of tools out there, but I used footprintnetwork.org, and really like it. Test it out.

Post image for recycled material bags – we love!

with earth day literally just around the corner, i felt that the timing was perfect to tell you guys about some special bags we’re carrying right now that are made out of recycled materials.  not only are these bags gorgeous, but you can take comfort in knowing that they are crafted out of repurposed items like vintage military bags, vintage fabrics and old leather jackets.

the gorgeous belmont backpack by ashley watson is my favorite.  the vancouver based designer draws her inspiration from leather jackets she finds in thrift stores, and each bag is crafted from recycled leather jackets, incorporating features like pockets and seams to make them unique and special. the leather is perfectly worn and soft, carrying with it a history all its own.

i fell in love with both of these bags by foley and corinna when i saw them on sasha pivovarova in our april catalog, but i love them even more now that i know they are made from recycled and vintage materials.  dana foley and anna corinna met when they both had booths at the chelsea art and antique market in 1998 – dana sold her original creations and anna sold vintage clothing.  they joined together and started designing pieces that were both original and incorporated vintage elements.  the musette satchel is made of vintage military bags with delicate, hand-crocheted fringe, and the bora hobo is made of varying, colorful found fabrics so they are each one-of-a-kind.

this fanny pack is another favorite, by artists and revolutionaries – an organic and eco-friendly label based in brooklyn.  their philosophy is “to create unique handcrafted items, using eco-friendly materials and processes.” like the designers above, they use repurposed and up-cycled materials in addition to hemp and organic cottons.  the fanny pack is made of repurposed vintage leather and has unique details like buttons and pockets, and a braided belt buckle strap.
