I am so psyched about this! I adore Instagr.am, and to be honest I often go back through my feed to see past pics. Lately I have been longing to have printed versions to place in stacks around my apartment; instant happiness, no? So much better than sifting through my phone. Just as I was trying to figure out the best (and easiest) way to get this project going I happened to come across Printstagr.am and soon fell in love with all of the sweet options they had available, just check out the Tiny book!

Tiny book – $10 for 3, Mini book – $12 for 2, Poster – $25, Mini prints – $12 for 48

Natalia Kills

A big fan for over a year now, I was beyond excited when Natalia Kills finally launched her debut album stateside earlier this week. Not quite patiently waiting for this album I’ve had to get my Natalia Kills fix via YouTube videos. She’s got my getting-ready-to-go-out soundtrack nailed, but having to stop mid eye-liner application to push replay every two and a half minutes was far from ideal (but still completely worth it). For me, Natalia Kills is everything that pop music SHOULD be, complete with a style that matches and complements her music. Some are calling it “revenge pop” but I don’t really care what it is, this album is fierce. If you’re looking for something new in pop music check her out–you can stream the new album from her site. (A few of my favorites: Wonderland, Break You Hard, Love Is A Suicide, Nothing Lasts Forever, & Mirrors.)

Thakoon for Somalia

My, my it has been a while! Lots going on, but before I get into excuses and stories I figured I’d start with this…a selfless AND fashionable note about one of my favorite designers and his work to help famine victims in Somalia.

I felt compelled and inspired to post when I heard that Thakoon was releasing a limited edition scarf with 100% of the proceeds going to aid Somalia. The lightweight scarf, a Masai-print straight from his autumn collection, is available now on his site. With the beautiful bright colors and plaid print it’s the perfect accessory for fall, but more importantly every penny will be donated to help the people (and especially the children) of Somalia. This has been on my mind with each meal I eat, so I was moved by the generosity in this offering.

Thakoon’s Somalia scarf available at Thakoon.com for $250.
