WEAR: I am beyond in love with these shoes by Gee Wawa, a California based shoe company. The shape is interesting, and the multi-print version reminds me of a 'red sky at night'. I'd wear them with my Yoga Jeans at night, or with a patterned dress to the park.
LISTEN: I may have missed Sappyfest this year, but my man brought me home the newest record by Grey Kingdom, one of the musicians I would have loved to see perform. Spencer Burton's lyrics are heartfelt, and his songs tell stories woven with poetry, love, and open skies.
EAT: If you haven't been to Ace Burger Co. in Halifax, you haven't lived. Their line up of burgers has me drooling on my keyboard and going back for more. My go-to order is the Jerk Chicken Burger. They they batter the meat with cornflakes and top it off with pineapple and chili-coconut mayo. YUM. They've also gotten some serious love from The Coast and their readership, check it out here.
CRAFT: I love craft kits that give you all the supplies to make something, as well as instructions. There is so much less pressure when everything is laid out for you. I recently discovered Kiriki Press and their adorable assortment of DIY Embroidery Stuffies. I'm a huge fan of Fiesta Cat, the cutest little mexican kitty there ever was.
DESIGN: Clear pink concrete? Yes please! My daydreams are built from this transparent concrete invented by Mexican students Joel Sosa and Sergio Omar Galván.
WATCH: If you haven't taken a break with Hermès film Hearts and Crafts, today is the day. Curl up next to your screen and indulge in this beautiful documentary about the craftspeople working for Ateliers Hermès. Isabelle Dupuy-Chavanat and Frédéric Laffont did an incredible job documenting the importance of working for a company that provides the opportunity to do work you love.
READ: Issue 8 of Wrap Magazine is en route to The Lunenburg Makery, and we are eagerly awaiting its arrival. If you haven't checked out this magazine you are in for a treat. Each issue is full of prints that you can use as wrapping paper or wall art, and has fabulous interviews with each of the featured artists. Issue 8 is on the theme of travel and creative journeys, and includes a print by Natasha Durley which I am especially excited to see as she is currently my favourite illustrator.
MAKE: I have been hunting for an easy and functional baby gift for my newly pregnant cousin, and when I stumbled on this hooded baby towel and wash cloth set on The Purl Bee I knew I'd found what I was looking for. Simple to make and snuggly to boot.
