Lassis 12 Ways

I didn’t experience my first lassi until my late 20s. I was at an arts festival and all of my friends were raving about them, so I thought sure I’ll try that. Life altering – everything delicious that I already loved combined to make the most refreshing drink! It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized lassis came in more flavors than the mango that I had tried that day. Check out these twelve recipes for a change up on the classic!

I’m dying to be a fly on the wall in Marco Rea‘s studio to watch how he creates, specifically these mixed media pieces made with magazine covers and spray paint. Grotesquely beautiful, no?

Stol Guitar Stand

Stol Guitar Stand-1-Design Crush


I don’t play guitar, but I always have the goal to someday pick it up. The Stol guitar stand pushes me even further in that direction, considering the instrument would look eons better perched upon it than in my clumsy hands. The Stol (Swedish for chair) is collapsible, snap the two wood frames together then knock them down to store flat.

Sara Andreasson

Sara Andreasson-1-Design Crush


Sara Andreasson‘s illustrations are bold, in your face, and unapologetic which is just what I love about them. The Gothenburg, Sweden-based illustrator and designer loves to play with saturated fields of color and experiment with subtle airbrushed gradients. The result is oh so good.

Leccare Lollipops

Leccare Lollipops-1-Design Crush


Aside from being downright gorgeous, Leccare Lollipops offer some of the most mouthwatering flavors possible. Things like lavender & marshmallow, blood orange & ginger, and amaretto sour are among their huge selection made by shop owner Kimberly Hadlock. Her handmade treats are made with natural, preferably locally sourced ingredients in Atlanta. Order everything from a seasonal sampler of flavors to enough to fill trick or treaters’ bags next month!

Paul Wackers

Paul Wackers-1-Design Crush


I’ve been coming across some fantastic painters lately who create an almost collage-like look with their medium. Pieces of Paul Wackers‘ works look downright embroidered with the most lovely sense of three dimensions about them.

Shabd Magic Jar Dye Kit

Shad Magic Jar Dye Kit-1-Design Crush

Basically the instant I saw the Shabd Magic Jar Dye Kit it jumped onto my Christmas list (which is getting quite long, just in case you were wondering). This magical all-in-one dye kit comes with a silk crepe de chine scarf and permanent non-toxic dyes and fixatives, all packed inside a reusable glass jar. Just add water, practice being patient for one hour, and then see the results. So much fun! The kits are available in amethyst, copper, jade, and quartz.

Kero-1-Design Crush


Whether they’re well thought out or raw and honest, I’m crushing hard on the illustrative talents of Italian artist Kero. Her bright and colorful pieces are pensive, while the simple black pen illustrations are anything but.

Sonia Pulido

Sonia Pulido-1-Design Crush



The work of Barcelona’s Sonia Pulido seems spot on for autumn, no? Something about each and every piece of her illustrated ceramics feels transitional, as though we’re capturing a glimpse right before the big finale. The minimal palette lends itself beautifully to that feeling, too.
