Danish Pastries 10 Ways

I have a HUGE sweet tooth and would love nothing more than to sit down to a pastry and coffee each morning for breakfast. (Unfortunately, my diabetes disagrees with this plan.) If you’re also in the Sweets for Breakfast party, have a look at these ten recipes for danish pastries below.












Rachel Burke


Brisbane, Australia-based Rachel Burke is a multidisciplinary artist and designer known for her vibrant, tactile designs, and wild tinsel creations. Her custom styles are immediately recognizable and should be considered wearable art. Since starting out with her original short tinsel jacket, Burke has expanded her collection to include longer jackets, dresses, and headpieces.

New Year’s Eve Party Dresses to Ring in 2019

I prefer to stay in on New Year’s Eve – maybe it’s the introvert in me or maybe the old lady. What I’d like to do is have a small dinner party where everyone dresses up as if they were going out, then after dinner we all change into our pajamas until the ball drops at midnight. It’s the best of both worlds! Anyway, if you are headed out on the town here are a few dresses that would be a great way to start 2019!











Valeska Soares


Brazilian-born, New York-based artist Valeska Soares‘ latest is brilliantly titled Doubleface. In it she flips older paintings over to the reverse side, paints them, and cuts out tiny portals to the original side. It’s also interesting the way Soares titles each one – by the paint color used.






Jim Bachor


Fascinated by ancient history and leaving a mark on the world, artist Jim Bachor merged both interests into mosaics. Through marble, glass, and mortar he creates modern subjects through the ancient art. (And yes, the tiles definitely resemble pixels!)

Sh*t My Friends Make


One of my favorite parts of my job – and my life – is that I get to meet and befriend the most amazing people. People who spend late nights working on their passion projects, who understand why shopping small is so important, and who are just generally awesome. I had every intention of getting this post pulled together earlier in the month, but my other jobs (I’ve got some hustle, too) have kept me busier than usual. I’m sure some shipping windows have already closed to order things in time, but you never know! And plenty of these guys have sales, free shipping, etc going on right now. Please know that the best, most genuine people are behind these shops. (I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few as well!)

Liza Lou


Los Angeles-based Liza Lou‘s artwork truly boggles my mind. THOSE ARE GLASS BEADS, all of them, every single one, and Lou threaded each bead with her own hands. The sheer size and quantity she’s created for each of these sculptural installations is a lot to take in, and the final works completely mesmerizing. Sometimes the beaded squares are layered on top of one another to create a further depth of color.
