Lexon Tykho Radio
a neat little gadget. The Lexon Tykho Radio is portable and the sleek design comes in a variety of colors. It’s made of rubber and is also splash proof, which is nice for trips to the beach or sitting around a pool. Counting down the days.

All Gone Book
learned about All Gone Book. Looks like I’m late to it, but it’s an interesting one. So despite possibly being a bit behind the times, felt the need to share. On a yearly basis since 2006, an edition gets released and documents “the most sought after street culture items”. So it’s a cool one for the coffee table and to reference years down the road.

Quinoa Banana Pancakes
for breakfast? Yep, and sounds pretty delicious too. My sister is on a health kick (and also trying to lose a few lbs), so she decided to try the “drop 10” from Self Magazine. She is pretty happy with the plan overall, and so far her favorite is Quinoa Banana Pancakes. I have yet to try it myself, but can’t wait to attempt this healthy and easy morning recipe.
1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
2 egg whites
1/4 cup 1% milk
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 sliced banana, divided
2 tbsp chopped walnuts
2 tbsp non-fat plain greek yogurt
1 tsp maple syrup
In a bowl, whisk 1/2 cup cooked quinoa with 2 egg whites, 1/4 cup 1 % milk, 1 tsp of brown sugar, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract; stir in 1/4 sliced banana. Coat a medium skillet with vegetable oil cooking spray; pour batter to make 3 pancakes. Cook over medium high heat, flipping once, until firm (about 3 minutes on each side). Top with 2 tbsp of non-fat plain greek yogurt, 1/4 sliced banana, 2 tbsp of chopped walnuts and 1 tsp of maple syrup. Enjoy!

my favorite desserts as a kid, and probably still today. Coffee ice, chocolate pie crust, fudge, nuts.. it’s pretty hard to not love a good Mud Pie! Thanks to Real Simple for reminding me of this delightful treat, and of course, for a recipe that keeps it simple!

that you end up dressing your kid similar to whatever your own style may be (until they develop their own, of course!). I personally like to dress comfortable and easy, which is exactly what the clothes from Vintage Kit are all about. Keeping in mind that kids need to be kids, they have pieces like cardigans, knickers, overalls, tops and swimsuits. Sure to make children and parents happy too.

Miss White & Bow Jovi Doll & Kiki Doll & Snoop & Polly
in Copenhagen founded LuckyBoySunday in 2007 on, get this, a Sunday. The duo designs a line of cuddly toys, pillows and more that are then produced by a talented group of women in Bolivia using 100% baby alpaca. All items are intended for a child’s room, but cool enough that if a piece ends up in the living room, it’s okay. And seeing as that’s pretty much inevitable, LuckyBoySunday’s a brand parents will be happy about too.
Pelican Hook Belt
that caught my eye while browsing Svpply. The Pelican Hook Belt is from one of my favorite men’s shops Sir Jack’s. It’s handcrafted in the USA and has a solid brass hook closure. An interesting accessory that can work with a fine pair of pants or a casual pair of jeans – I like its versatility.

Patagonia Trucker Hat, $25
raving about mesh hats isn’t something that’s going to happen too often, but this Trucker Hat from Patagonia is a good look. As the brand put it “you don’t need 18 wheels to sport this high-crown, classic hat”. Afterall it is from Patagonia, so it’s got long lasting style which the timeless brand is known for. Made from organic cotton canvas, polyester mesh, a solid color palette, and a logo that’s a personal favorite. They just do things right.
both Megan and I are on a pant kick today, and I’m loving the boyfriend fit railroad stripe jean from NSF. As we’ve said many times before (it’s almost our mantra now) throw on a pair of jeans, a tee, lipstick and you’re pretty much good to go. These can be found at Peper & Parlor, a fabulous shop with a carefully selected assortment of independent labels and timeless pieces. They’ve also got a seriously cute variety of kids tees, that are just about irresistible. But don’t take my word for it, stop by and see for yourself.

Rag & Bone Racine Pant, $475
Rag & Bone’s Racine Pant for spring. The wide leg is something we’ve talked about (umm.. did ya read 70’s inspired fashion?) – such a great look and a refreshing change from the skinny pants. Throw on with a body hugging tank or a cropped sweatshirt, some wedges and chunky jewelry. Bright colors and the flowy silhouette make these a nice addition to the wardrobe for the warmer months. More good work, Rag & Bone!
