Inspired by nature lately- specifically plant life. Giant, tropical leaves, is there anything better? And palm trees, palm trees, palm trees! I could live in a palm tree. Images: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

la luz

Nothing gets me like a surf rock band, especially an all girl surf rock band–and especially an all girl surf rock/doo-wop band.

Jayne Min is a skater, a fashion blogger, and a designer. She’s been at it for awhile, but I just came across her blog and fell hard. Obviously she is stunning, but what I love best about her is that she’s funny as hell. Here’s a photo from her Tumblr of her dog in Alexander […]

    French Exit presents SPRING BREAK! If you are sick of Portland’s version of spring (pea tendrils, clouds, melancholy),  and want something a little more Daytona Beach (Hair beading, fake tans, Red Stripe, show-me-your-tits) this might be the answer.
