holy saints!

I popped into AllSaints new flagship in SoHo and already anticipate hours of my life will be lost in this dressing room. Seriously, if I had my way I would have one of everything! Asymmetrical cuts that flatter, simple twists on classics, and all in my favorite earth-tone schemes – even in summer!
Plus this vintage-inspired retail space is complete with antique fixtures, printing presses, knitting looms and hundreds of Singer sewing machines lining the store front windows...

The Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash


This film really kicked me into high gear. I feel like we've gotten entirely too passive about our energy consumption. I think of myself as an environmentalist and very proud of the lifestyle changes we've made over the years, but boy, we still have a long way to go!

This thought provoking film looks at our society's addiction to oil and the economic and environmental consequences of this behavior.

From the U.S. Department of Energy's, Robert L. Hirsch: "The world has never faced a problem like Peak Oil. Without massive mitigation more than a decade before the fact, the problem will be pervasive and will not be temporary."

These changes have made our lives healthier, happier and dramatically reduced our environmental impact.
• Taking up dense living
• Ditching the car
• Going vegan: Did you know that the main source of water pollution in the US is not chemical waste but the excrement of farm animals.
• Eating locally
• Choosing energy alternatives: in NYC residents can choose Wind Power, it consists of 100% wind-generated electricity, and costs 4 cents more per kWh than non-renewable (it averages only about $4 more a month)

On deck:
My office has offered up our rooftop patio for gardening - lets get this planting party started!
