Post image for the perks of being a wallflower – part 2


“sam tapped her hand on the steering wheel. patrick held his hand outside the car and made air waves. and i just sat between them. after the song finished, i said something. “i feel infinite.”


“i walked over to the hill where we used to go and sled. there were a lot of little kids there. i watched them flying. doing jumps and having races. and i thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. and all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do. and they will all kiss someone someday. but for now, sledding is enough. i think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn’t.”

“things change. and friends leave. and life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

I just finished this book for the fourth time. It never gets old and I cry everytime. I am a lot like Charlie but a lot happier and I don't need a psychiatrist. Tonight I drove my friend home and we drove down the freeway at 80 miles an hour with the music blasting. I felt infinite and I just couldn't stop smiling. I just love this book.

if i had to put mgmt’s music into words it would be… summer 2008, days spent in the parks of san francisco listening to music, hoola hooping and hanging out with friends, dancing barefoot all night till you’re drenched in sweat, and watching the sun come up. few albums capture a moment in time so clearly as oracular spectacular did for me. this leads to high expectations for their new album – and i am still undecided whether congratulations lives up to my expectations or not, but i’m giving it time because it took me a few listens to warm up to their first album. their music is the type you hear in the background at parties, or see live at a music festival, and once it is experienced – rather than just listened to – the moment sticks with you. they’re a little out there but i love them, i think they’d be so fun to hang with. they’re playing coachella this year and i’m sure they’ll be one of the festival highlights!

listen to some songs from the new album below and let me know what you think!

Post image for It’s all about the Body Con

We are obsessed here @ home office with the body con,and also a little obbsessed with Alexa Chung. I’ve got all excited about styling tips for this very versatile little number.

I’m the type of girl who doesn’t like the look too ‘Ginger’ (Fp’s term for the Sexy girl) So I play down any item I have that might scream Wowzer! With quirky accessories and layering.

Rock Vintage T’s, playful jewelry and messy / dreaded hair are details that will tag along with my body con. However if I had a body like our models below… Sure I’d Rock out in one all day everyday!

The items above are:1. French Terry Dress 2.Scandalous Lace Tunic 3.East Meets West Tunic

to get you all in the mood here are some beautiful images taken by hedi slimane at last year’s coachella festival. i’m used to seeing festival images in color, and i think seeing them in black and white really adds to the emotion and starkness of the images.

Post image for book club post: the perks of being a wallflower

so i have finished reading the perks of being a wallflower and i must say that i am so glad we chose this book.  i had never read it before and i found it very moving and full of wisdom that is relevant not just to someone around the age of the narrator (a freshman in highschool) but to anyone of any age.  everyone can relate to the feelings of loneliness, sadness and longing that charlie experiences, and those emotions can occur at any age.  deep down, i think we are all searching for that moment of ultimate freedom and happiness- when you truly feel infinite.   throughout the week i’ll be posting inspirational quotes from the book along with images that it conjured up in my brain…please feel free to share your thoughts on the book in the comments section!

yesssss......my favorite book
Carissa Chavez -Apr 12, 2010, 6:42PM
I loved that book, it really changed a lot of thinking about whats important to me. It shows that no ones struggles and problems are more important than anyone elses, and it really was a good book. Also its interesting because in the book Charlie was a freshman the same time my dad was.

Post image for a taste of morocco

much like the culture itself, moroccan cuisine is extremely diverse – a literal melting pot of berber, moorish, mediterranean, arab and african influences.  spices, dried fruits and vegetables are used extensively in most dishes, often served with couscous.  meals are also typically served with bread, which is used as a utensil for scooping up food and soaking in its rich flavor.  our team told me they ate a lot of tagine- morocco’s most popular and common dish. tagine is a slow cooked stew that combines meat, vegetables, sometimes fruit, and loads of spices.  they’re usually served in really neat looking pots called tagines, like the one above, from which the meal gets its name.

Post image for rachel t. robertson

i discovered the artwork of rachel t. robertson a few weeks ago and i thought it was so reminiscent of our new website creative concept, sweet jasmine.  rachel is a san francisco-based artist who creates whimsical collages reminiscent of a scrapbook, combining nature imagery and mixed media with tiny details like graph paper, envelopes, stamps and thread.
