Female Labor Force

So recently I got a job doing hardwood flooring. I know, you’ve probably never met a 23 year old, female, with a job doing hardwood flooring. I get that a lot; not actually in words, but I can see it in the way new clients look at me, when they…

Haim x NYLON

I literally have no reaction other than silence followed by a closed eye, head turn if you haven’t heard of Haim yet. Because honestly, they’re blowing up. The trio of sisters, from LA have been making quite the fuss in the music industry over the last year, and its well worth it….

Tavik Spring 2015

One of the best brands in the men’s swimwear game just decided to delve into women’s apparel. And I’m very much behind it. The three word motto, Modern Beach Culture, is what Tavik has always been about: uniting beach culture of yesteryear and today’s modern culture.

Getting More from a Camera Bag with Kelly Moore

Having worked at a[nother] blog for the past two years, while also pursuing my own photographic interests, I’ve had to keep my Canon Rebel t3i on me at all times. And instead of buying the first camera bag that meets my needs at Best Buy, I’ve spent the last two…

Arrchive: Vivian Maier

It isn’t often that an artist goes unnoticed until after they pass away, but in the case of street photographer, Vivian Maier, it seems that she tried to stay unnoticed. Using a Rolleiflex camera, that shoots in a square format (very reminiscent of todays Instagram photos..) Vivian photographed Chicago streets during the…
