Post image for pretty lights

one of our fp girls was at camp bisco this past weekend, the annual disco biscuits festival in new york. her fiance does the lights for the band and she sent me some photos and video of what he did this weekend…it’s pretty amazing:

“johnny literally broke all boundaries in the lighting world this weekend!  i am still in complete awe of what this all looked like. it was the most unbelievable thing i have ever seen!”

check out a quick clip of the lights in action- i’ve never seen anything like it either:

there was an article about the festival on the cover of the new york times yesterday – check that out here.

Blog-9-image-Eucalyptus_deglupta-base

another fp girl showed me this the other day and i was amazed- i’ve never seen this before! rainbow eucalyptus is the only type of eucalyptus that grows in the northern hemisphere.  every year the trees shed their bark in multiple patches at various times.  this exposes the green inner bark which changes colors to blue, orange, purple and red as it matures – resulting in a rainbow of color.

so is it possible to have one of these in my apartment??? love.

Joseph- My tree was a gift from my ex-husband, I'm not exactly sure where he got it. Although I do know it was ordered from the internet, so you could probably just do a search and find a few places. The mini trees don't look the same as the those in the picture, but it's still very nice to have.
Joseph -Jul 23, 2010, 12:10AM
I totally agree with everyone about it BREATH TAKING BEAUTY. I have never seen or heard of anything like this and consider it a blessing to now have knowledge of it. I NOW HAVE A FAVORITE TREE! A two questions....one for Mel Where did you get yours? Second one...what is FP?

is it a dream
keeping you awake
is it the stillness that makes you shake?
if you need to know for sure
what’s on the ocean’s floor
you’ll sink

Post image for trend we love: southwest boho

she’s a wanderer of the land.  her connection to the earth beneath her feet is strong- she feels the presence of those who walked here before her. this comes across in her style through her worn, ripped denim, heavy brown vintage leather and hair tangled up in braids. turquoise, rust and natural colors that come from the earth accent her jewelry and accessories. the open landscape of the southwest calls to her with its wild horses, dust storms and fields of cacti that burst with beautiful flowers. she hears music in the wind.

here are some images this trend brought to mind…

Post image for sunday funday

i thought saturday at the xpn festival would be tough to top but sunday just might have… the weather could not have been better and the bands were amazing. i was fortunate enough to have a media pass so i was able to watch the shows from a spot directly in front of the stage – i have tons of great photos to share! but for now here are some photos of the atmosphere on sunday…

we took the ferry over to camden from penn’s landing – definitely the way to go! you get some great views of the philly skyline and ben franklin bridge.
