Post image for year of the tiger

the chinese new year starts tomorrow! 2010 is the year of the tiger…a symbol of courage.

to be politically correct, it's not JUST "Chinese New Year" there are other countries that celebrate it as well, like Vietnam and Thailand. You should refer to it was "Lunar New Year".

Post image for city of love

so many valentine’s day-themed events are going on this weekend! whether you like the holiday or not, there are a couple of things you can do in philly this weekend that sound pretty cool…

miss you

you may remember these murals from a post I did a while back…they’re part of a series called “a love letter for you,” which consists of over 50 murals by artist steve powers throughout philadelphia.

well there’s an exhibit opening tonight of sketches, found objects associated with the project, and personal works by the artist, taking place at 1226 chestnut st from 5:30 to 8:30. then tomorrow you can catch powers at exit skateshop in northern liberties between 5 and 7pm, signing copies of the “a love letter for you” book.  there’s even a special “love train” event on valentine’s day, where you can take a tour of the murals on a privately chartered, slow-speed, guided el train. for more info click here.


this is something i’d like to do on any random day- this weekend you can go to hudson beach glass in philly and pull your own glass flower! they’re so pretty…and they’ll never die :) for more info click here.


you can’t escape it…love is in the air this weekend.

thanks for the reminder- i keep telling myself to book tickets for the love letters tour, and finally did after seeing your post- can't wait to get on that train!

Post image for rest in peace.

My heart sank this morning when i logged on to The Guardian to check on the local news back home in England.
Alexander McQueen had Passed away, I couldn’t help but grieve.

He has been a maverick to the English Fashion Scene and an Iconic one at that. With a label such as “The Bad Boy” which came from his invention of the ‘Bumster’ in the 90’s. This Designer was out there to make a statement and that he managed to do every season.

Everyone warmed to him and his cheeky, daring attitude to Fashion.

I admired him for years and he was often an Inspiration to me when i was studying Fashion/Textile Design.

His Spring/Summer 2010 collection blew me away- It was Fashion/Art at its best!

I will miss you Mr McQueen!!!

this is so sad and such a loss to the fashion world, how sad to think he was in such a dark place, they say that being a genius is hard though (mentally - the expextations, downfalls etc) and i guess this and strugling with the loss of his mum only a week ago was too much. RIP mcqueen.
sam -Feb 11, 2010, 9:25PM
i am deeply saddened by the loss of such a talented designer. He lived just a few blocks from me. My thoughts are with his family at this time. Long live McQueen!XX

Post image for dance dance dance

fp jemma is snowed in at home today but she sent along this post about one of her favorite artists right now, lykke li!

Lykke Li is slamming my ear drums and has been for the last few months- I love her!
This little swedish Pixie fills me with delight everytime I see a picture of her, everytime I see her cute little dance moves and everytime i stumble across a raw, acoustic video of her performing. The latest being-coming from my addiction with La Blogotheque- her collaboration with Bon Iver on Dance, Dance, Dance, where they both jam around a fountain with tambourines.

I feel like the song “Everybody but me” is my anthem. She gives a dusting of glitter to my everyday, so i just wanted to show some love.

leighanne -Feb 12, 2010, 6:40AM
i played this last night just because you said too and i loved it, you cant help but dance along and jig like she does - shes such a mystical little person, her voice is insane, cant wait to play this when i vist my loved one *-*
