Gratefully Thankfully Happy

Usually our blog is about what inspires us, and things that we share to hopefully inspire you.  But today is about giving thanks.

Solange - Losing You

Hot Looks From The Video

I am a little bit obsessed with Solange and her amazing hipster hippie style.  She does such a magical job of combining colors and textures with everything she does and wears.

Especially Thankful

Growing up Thanksgiving was a very big holiday in my house.  My Mom always loved Thanksgiving because she said it was the one holiday that you didn't need to worry about presents.  It is all about good food, good friends, and family.

Shouldn't Everything Be Fun

Such a simple concept.  If we can figure out a way to make the daily activities in our life more fun then they wouldn't seem like so much work.

Charlotte Olympia

Charlotte Olympia is a beautiful shoe line started in London in 2008 created by Charlotte Olympia Dellal.  She is known for her impeccable attention to detail and her gold signature platform which I can't get enough of.  All of the shoes are handcrafted in Italy.  She creates four collections every year and you can find her line in such places as Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, online at Net-A-Porter etc.  I am in love with the flower show pictured above from her resort 2013 collection.  And the little lace bootie known as the Minerva line is from her gorgeous bridal collection.  I think I want them all!!

Grey Color Pallete

Grey Color Pallete

As soon as the weather cools I love to wear grey.  There's nothing better than a grey cozy scarf.  And those open toed Gucci booties above are my new obsession.

BEST Macaroni and Cheese....Thanksgiving

Photo Via Bell' Alimento I debated a little bit about this post.  I make an amazing baked macaroni and cheese.  I never have given out my recipe for it, but I decided now that I have the blog it is time to share it.  I will definitely be making it for Thanksgiving, and I didn't want to wait until after Thanksgiving to post it so I snagged a picture from Bell Alimento which looked very similar to how this recipe turns out.  I promise if you make this mac and cheese for Thanksgiving it is sure to be a hit.  Let me know how it goes if you make it.

Throwback Thursday KRS One

Pure remembers when his Dad first brought home "By All Means Necessary."  KRS One was one of his first inspirations as a rapper.  He is also one of the first rappers ever to become a vegetarian...just a little trivia fact.  The album cover above was a recreation of a famous Malcom X Portrait.  Hope this throwback brings you back, and if you haven't heard it shows you some Hip Hop roots.

Embrace The Shake

Sometimes are supposed limitations are our road to a greater expanse.  I love this idea that through a problem comes a solution, and often that solution brings about something that we didn't even imagine.  Last weekend my computer was stolen, thus the lack of blog posts this week.  I got a new one only to find that my backup was corrupted.  Everything had to be put on to my computer one by one.  It seemed to take forever, and was incredibly frustrating.  But after years of copying over information from one computer to the next some things ran pretty glitchy.  Now after being forced to copy things over one at a time, and basically rebuild my computer it is running better than ever.  What seemed to be a problem at the time, has now become a blessing.  The idea that when we come against something another great idea or situation is just on the horizon is so wonderful and so true.  I am awed and inspired by Phil Hansen and his work.  The fact that he took what appeared to be an obstacle and turned it into a blessing is there for all of us to do.  I truly believe that when we live our lives in a way where we make sure to put out positive energy and love that when things come into our path that may appear negative they are often just a lesson in disguise to bring us something greater.
