Design You Trust
Eye candy — straight up — but who doesn’t love eye candy? Design You Trust collects some of the best in cutting edge, urban graphic design. If you need help thinking outside the box, Design You Trust doesn’t even know where the box is or what it looks like. They cut the box up into little pieces and used them to make a collage.
A former Bay Area girl now living in New York, Sarah Conley brings a fresh, fun take to her fashion and beauty coverage on Style It Online.
This site breaks the online apparel store paradigm that says shoppers want to see models and close-ups of the designs. The idea here is all about user-generated video and music. You make your own short films (as a looped sequence) with snippets of web video. It’s fast, fun and very engaging. Oh, and there are some T-shirt designs in there somewhere, lol!
A pinch of beauty advice here, a splash of social commentary there, and an occasional dash of musical musings make Afrobella one hell of a good read.
Loop – News and Nonsense
Loop is as serious about fashion and pop culture news as it is about its own design. It bills itself as a news site for the people, by the people. Corny, but cool.
Tabs Goes to the Vet, Book I
Unfortunately, the visit to the vet this morning did not go according to plan. Tabs was so scared in the car that he lost control and poo’d all over himself in his cardboard kitty crate. It was like yesterday’s cartoon was a premonition; he really did end up riding dirty.
After consulting with the vet, El Hub and I decided the proper course of action was to return home. Tabs hasn’t exhibited any symptoms of illness and seems fine, so we’ll try the vet again later this week.
The cat bath was … an experience. The poor guy was not happy about the water at all, but within an hour of drying he was back to his usual plucky self.
