Better sleep, more energy - Regular physical activity can help you to fall asleep more quickly and sleep more deeply. Therefore along with getting Generic Viagra 100mg pill online you also need to go for regular check up to make sure that your blood vessels are working just fine. What a younger man does in his early years will result in what he becomes in his old age.

siren nation

if you’re in the portland area this weekend, the 3rd annual siren nation women’s music and art festival is taking place through sunday. this year’s festival includes an art and craft sale showcasing women artisans from the northwest, an art show featuring local portland artists (female of course), a film festival featuring documentaries about four female pioneers in politics, performance, poetry and partisanship, and a music festival featuring an all female lineup.

siren nation’s mission is to inspire and empower women of all ages to create their own art and to highlight the many achievements of women in the arts. the organization showcases and creates performance and exhibition opportunities for women throughout the year, and it is the only women’s collective that produces an annual festival showcasing the original work of women in music, film, performance and visual art.
for more info check out their website.

one of my co-workers sent me this really cool video from the chanel spring/summer 2010 show during paris fashion week…they put a spy camera in the model’s hair before her runway walk! it’s really interesting to see from her perspective…

i love the one-of-a-kind patched bf jeans we just got in, but i love ‘em even more now that i know the story behind them. read on for merrie’s story about the inspiration behind these unique, one-of-a-kind jeans.

“we recently met a young woman from kutch, a desert area in the state of gujarat in india. she had a huge collection of tribal embroideries, which we bought to piece with delicate embroidered net from a market in Delhi and patch onto vintage denim.
we have always loved making clothes out of vintage pieces, cutting them up and adding bits of trims from another era, some tribal embroidery or some old denim. we had already created a small workshop in india where we make most of our store fixtures…embroidered hangers, cane stools, dressing room curtains, beaded chandeliers…etc. adding a few sewing machines to that set-up seemed the next step.
now we are able to find assorted fabrics in the markets, collect trims we love, and put them in the newest silhouettes for the stores within a month or so of the initial inspiration. the assorted fabrics keep that one-of-a-kind feel, while making several of the same silhouette allows us to keep the prices reasonable.
we’ll send a photo of our happy workshop soon. on any given day, there might be: men sitting under the mango trees, hand weaving cane stools for the showroom in new york…tailors sewing prototypes for our next fp one season…wood carvers making doors for our newest fp store…pinwheel makers sitting in the grass making hundreds of paper pinwheels for our next display…anshu the gardener’s son studying his abc’s…it is quite a group effort!”
thanks merrie! can’t wait to see some photos!

I have walked the markets of Delhi and Gujrat and always felt that these artisans deserve more attention. These patches on jeans is just ingenious. Trust FP to come up with unique stuff like this. Every FP store feels like a home away from home for me. Truly inspiring.
Myra Manning -Nov 06, 2009, 4:07PM
I really think that clothing patches in general are going to be an emerging trend over the next couple of years, and there are very few limits to how many/how large they can be. It's definitely an inspiring story.

2 of our knits designers recently traveled to tokyo. while they were there, they met up with their friend ryohei, a very talented artist.
he offered to do paper cuts of them during dinner, and they captured this awesome video of it.

the artist’s name is ryohei tanaka. he has some really amazing work on his website. check it out by clicking on the image below.

by the way, the song in the video is “happy endings” by pizzicato five.

lighten up

one of the best things about the holidays are the twinkling lights that decorate streets and houses…seeing them brings back that childhood anticipation of holidays, parties and the end and beginning of another year. color and light played a big role in our new catalog, and we’re lighting up our stores as well! our display team just finished installing the in-store holiday displays and shared some of the images that inspired them…

and here are the results! love the walls of lights…

in keeping with the photography theme of the day…did you ever have to make a pinhole camera at school when you were younger? i didn’t, but i kind of wish i had. luckily someone at work showed me this site where you can download and print out a pdf of a cute little pinhole camera that you can make with just a few additional supplies.
plus, look how cool the photos can turn out…

to make your own pinhole camera, go to the website and download the pdf here!
i think i’m going to make one and decorate it to look very free people…if it turns out ok, i’ll share on the blog :)

The second pinhole image is super gorgeous! I love the corner sunburst and the way the flowers and grasses are gravitating towards the sun!
Alicia -Nov 04, 2009, 3:38PM
