The awesome week-long musical summer camp Girls Rock Philly is looking for volunteers for it’s upcoming session this August! The all-girls camp targets musical development, self-esteem enhancement, friendship & community building, and nurturing individual talents within a cooperative atmosphere. During the week long camp, the campers form bands, and at the end of the week put on a concert! The campers and volunteers (who do not need to play an instrument or be in a band) have a blast!
They are having a meet-&-greet for volunteers a week from this Sunday. Check out the specifics if you’re interested! There’s also a Girls Rock Portland and a Girls Rock Chicago that I bet are starting to look for volunteers as well!
Below, check out a few of the bands from last year‘s camp. They are so awesome!
You may remember a while ago when we first got our pet-camera, and Trixie tried it out for us. The camera clips to your pet’s collar and takes a picture once a minute so that you can see their view of the world! Well, today we had a new photographer try out the pet-cam for us! Meet Pilgrim, the sweet dog of Carrie, our Assistant Art Director.
Pilgrim wore the pet-cam for a while today and showed us the home office from a doggy point of view! His pictures are pretty fun, check them out below!
Isn’t this tea bag crazy? Korean designer Wonsik Chae came up with this idea for a light in the shape of a tea bag! Each time you dip the bag in and out of the water, like regular tea, it gets darker – or rather, brighter! The bag has florescent chemicals in it that react with the water and glow. Reminds me of those old party glow-sticks!
Several of my FAVORITE bloggers are talking about our Jeffrey Campbell Shoes, I thought I’d give you the inside scoop. We are selling out fast! We are totally loving the nude color. You can seriously wear them with ANYTHING.
If we don’t have your size we are receiving more in May, but not in the grey. So get them now if you want them!
You can check out the other bloggers that are loving these like Bleach Black, life style dissected, notcouture, and the prism and the pendulum.

I’m really feeling these Matryoshka dolls by Irina Troitskaya. I’ve always loved Matryoshka dolls, and these ones are so cool and unique! All of her sets have a specific theme – for example, the top set is naturally white animals, another set is called the most popular animals from Russian fairytales. I love it! See more on Booooooom!
I find these pieces by Do-Ho Suh really interesting! His work mostly deals with questions of individuality and anonymity, or the transience of existence, reportedly inspired by his time in the military. There is something about all the small parts building up a whole in the first two pieces that is really fascinating to me. What do you guys think? See more of Do-Ho’s work on Design Crisis.
Whenever it’s time for the Thursday Poll, it always seems to surprise me that it’s Thursday already – every week! But it is Thursday, and it’s time for our poll!
We decided last week that Orange Ocean is our favorite color of the Boyeee Tee, though it was actually a really even vote!
