i’m not sure what’s better, their performance of “airplanes” or the guy who chases down a robber to get a girl’s purse back.

i just noticed that lately i’ve been really drawn to face and bodypaint.  i keep saving photos of it. i love how it makes such a bold, colorful statement… but i’m not sure when or if i’d ever be able to pull this off…  if i was going to burning man i would definitely be rocking some paint.  what do you guys think?

I love it! This is pretty much my moto!! Why spend so much time being angry and sad, just act happy and then you'll be happy and you'll live a better life!
ariana -Aug 16, 2010, 5:09PM
so true... i was just talking to a friend about this... if we spent 365 days a year being bothered by the things we hate, we would end up living in a sad sad world full of angry people. it is far greater for all and for oneself to give love and in the end we encounter happier people along the way... and life is that much greater. :)

Happy Friday

Post image for Happy Friday

Friday evenings are the best, you can let your hair down after a working week. Sleep until you want to wake up and not when the alarm tells you too.

I usually wake up on Saturdays cook breakfast and listen to music in a carefree mood, and relax.

I heart Fridays!

Is anyone doing anything fun?

JessofSoCal -Aug 17, 2010, 5:14PM
I just got back from camping at Seqouia National Park! Beautiful place to get away from my daily routine in the office!

love them all, but the one I love the most was not pictured. It's the one on the outfit section of the website consisting of the nicholas k check trapeze dress, ruffle tweed jacket, and the joe lace up over the knee boots and it is by far my favorite :)
Jessica -Aug 16, 2010, 11:12AM

Post image for almost famous

one of our newest items is this fuzzy faux fur jacket that we’ve dubbed the almost famous fur jacket. inevitably, images and snippets of the movie of that name come to mind.  there was a period of time when i was in college when i would watch this movie with my roommate to the point where we had it memorized and wanted to get a pet turtle and name it russell. i always felt like i was really meant to be a band-aid, traveling the states in a tour bus with a grungy long-haired band… living for music, love and nothing else.

here are some images, some from the movie and some from elsewhere, that make this feeling come rushing back.

Post image for office space

back in the section of our new building where our visual display team sits, there is a door that is usually partially open, but i’ve never gone in. that is, until the other day… when i slipped in and realized it was their new workspace.  this is where you’re likely to find upcoming store displays that they are working on as well as furniture, fabric and boxes of trinkets that i could dig through for ours. what i would give to be able to decorate my apartment using this stuff…
