The Gap is Back, Alright!
The wait is over! After a four-year gap, Gap is bringing back commercials with a bang! The comeback will commence with two ads featuring some pretty famous folks. Alexa Ray Joel will sing a cover of “Just the Way you Are” and Dhani Harrison will perform a cover of The Beatles “For You Blue.” As if this weren’t cool enough, each of these songs were written by the performer’s fathers, Billy Joel and George Harrison. Check them out here (and here).
Of a Kind Cookbook Vol. 3
The online boutique that aims to cultivate a relationship between its designers and customers has complied its third cookbook. It’s said that food is the way to the heart, so it only makes sense that Of a Kind would lead us deeper into the hearts of their designers through their stomachs! In the brand’s Cookbook Vol. 3, you’ll find recipes from 30 of their designers. Today they gave us a taste (pun intended) of what’s inside the book with a guac recipe from leather goods and accessories designer Beka Forney of Louise Goods. Now I’ve seriously got a craving for some Mexican cuisine this evening. Check it out here.
Welcome The Boy Repeller
Yup, you read correctly, The BOY Repeller. The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, has got some new competition in town: 11-year-old Vivian Dushey. Dushey is the second cousin of Max Assoulin, husband of designer Rosie Assoulin. So, this tween fashionista has got the hook up. This aspiring young blogger and fashion designer may be Medine’s biggest fan, hints being dubbed as the child-version of her. I’ll give the girl this much: she’s already building the right kind of buzz to jump start her career once she hits puberty.

Regardless of whether you’re a DIY-nubie or DIY-verteran, Domesek has got you covered with over 40 projects. Love to entertain? Can’t stop obsessing over your home decor? Just a good old fashionista? (You better be if you’re reading this blog!) No matter what your craft is, there’s a project for you. And, BONUS! If you’ve got a Kindle and grab the e-version, there are links to instructional videos to help you out! This truly sounds idiot-proof, even for a DIY-novice like me.
