Say, "Cheese"

I came across the work of German photographer Daniel Weisser on Flickr and I fell in love. The way he edits the colors to create a certain tone in his pictures is brilliant. One day, when I have my own line, I'll call him up to shoot the layout... To check out his work, go to:

Bartender, How 'bout another round?

If you have been to Holland, then you are familiar with genever, a dutch drink that is often sipped along side your beer.
The Bols family was one of the first to produce real high-quality genevers and liqueurs. The company was founded in 1575 and is still world-famous for its range. You might recognize their brand from the stone bottle or "genever kruik". Recently opened in Amsterdam's Museum District is The House of Bols, where visitors can enjoy a 'Hall of Taste', a 'World of Cocktails' lounge, a 'Mirrorbar' and even a 'Bartending Academy'. Since 95% of your taste is determined by what you smell and the environment you're in, House of Bols is meant to re-energize the brand and deliver a modern experience to the power of tasting their genevers and liqueurs.

Hermes has come out with four different patterned 'Silky Pop Bags'. The bags zip in and out of a little leather pouch and are perfect for summer. However, the one problem is the price 700 euros a piece, lets just say I'm not rushing out anytime soon to purchase one. I'll just have to appreciate them via the cute skethces they have on their website:

I went to the Museum of Natural History this week to check out a special exhibit they are running called 'Frogs'. The exhibit had over 200 species of exotic frogs from all over the world. Some of my favorites were the colorful poisoness varieties that I thought had a grafiti/camo/in-your-face vibe. If you get the chance, check it out for yourself....
