so many things I am mildly obsessed with these days. so much beauty.
but, alas, I am swamped with life. as a quick kiss as I grab an apple from the basket on your table whilst leaving, I give you this.
this gorgeous/dark/real/amazing song/video.
Happy Easter, dear lovelies!
Every year I will post this same gorgeous photo of my best friend, Lisa, and myself circa Easter 1987… the day we decided to take over the world.
[so much love.]
A couple weeks ago, I entered a contest on Facebook to win a pair of sunglasses. I can’t tell you just why I entered, or how I even found out about it, but I’m glad that I did… because I won!
The sunglasses are made by Bodega + Shwood out of whiskey barrels from Bushmills Irish Whiskey. Cool, right?
I expected to just receive a flimsy cardboard box with the sunglasses in the mail and that would be great, but today I got the glasses in the mail… and… wow.
It was just the most amazing packaging ever. I love this stuff. LOVE it. I had to document it. And, now, I would like to share it with you…
Amazing box. With a little tool? Yes? I’m a little embarrassed to admit how long it took me to figure out how to open the box that was nailed shut. A moderately competent human [or monkey] would have figured out instantly that you use the handy pry-bar they have provided.
Look at how amazing even the box is! With the wood texture and the laser-cut lettering. [evan in the background being as patient as ever about my ridiculousness… side note: i came home singing a song and doing a dance about how excited i was about these glasses.]
“Handmade In Oregon”
Isn’t that just the best? I can’t get over how awesome and personal opening that box felt. And all for sunglasses! AH-MAZING sunglasses… but it was like one of my best friends made them for me and then packaged them up to send them to me. LOVE.
And then Evan tried to take a photo of me wearing them and I just felt so awkward…
But, you know when I don’t feel awkward? Singing “I Wanna Be a Supermodel” and posing with lovelies…
Thanks so much Bushmills, Bodega, and Shwood! The prize was more amazing than I could have imagined!
