Grain Eyewear

Grain Eyewear makes handmade sunglasses from wood in their Philadelphia workshop.  And I have to admit, these are some of the dopest shades I've seen in a while!  I want The Lola (pictured above) for myself - love that honey wood color (I'm guessing that's the Cuban Mahogany). 

Here are the rest of the current designs that are equally as cool.  I can't wait to see what other eyewear and accessories they come up with!

What a Wonderful World

My mom sends me lots of random forwards, usually with cute pictures of puppies.  This video of a BBC commercial made me smile this morning, so I thought I'd share. Definitely puts me in awe of nature and this amazing world we live in.

Music Mondays | Butch Walker and The Black Widows

I know nothing about this band, but the video for their song "Synthesizers" is awesome - it includes Matthew McConaughey in his famous Dazed & Confused attire. There's also a faux-Snookie and wannabe-LMFAO. Needless to say, this music video made my morning. Hope it cures your case of the Mondays!

I can't get enough of Chevron right now!  And it's been a thing for a while now, so I figured it was time for a product round up.  It's a great way to spice up your home and personal style. Several of these items I have purchased, so I can vouch for them personally :).

Music Mondays | The Milk Carton Kids

I decided to check out The Milk Carton Kids when I noticed them as the opener for Old Crow Medicine Show and The Lumineers at Summer Stage in Central Park.  I found their 2011 album entitled Prologue and have thoroughly enjoyed it!  The Milk Carton Kids include members Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, and their harmonies are so soothing and heart-warming.

Here's a Tiny Desk Concert the guys did for NPR recently...
