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.

The gift giving season..
Why Don't You...
is not that far away (yikes!). So instead of stressing over shopping and budgets take a look at this great book called Why Don’t You… [re]design Christmas?(Thanks again Nell)! Turn to this book for some great gift ideas that you can make yourself for friends and family. Things like balloon bowls, chestnut antlers and an IWire – peaked your interest? Each project has step by step instructions of what materials you will need, and how to construct each item. Mom’s not the only one who loves a home-made gift, and keepin’ it real for a season that has really started to get out of control is the way to go.
I’ve got the..
My Little Leo
astrology zone app on my phone, have many times turned to a psychic for answers, and love having my birth chart analyzed. But I never thought about astrology for kids, until now. My Little Leo, written by Kristen Hamel-McEvoy, gives insight to zodiac signs (and maybe even personality traits) of children. This book is all about the astrological sign of Leo and is the first in a series of twelve. An insightful book for both kids & their folks – I find myself anxiously awaiting the arrival of My little Pisces!

I Love Your Style
someone else to take care of other than myself, I feel my personal style slipping a bit. I definitely had to put in more effort when I went to an office everyday, even more so because I worked in fashion. But since my day usually consists of chasing around a kid on the playground, I need to dress more sensible. Finding a balance of practicality and individuality has been tricky – especially when my clothes are constantly covered in food, paint and dirt. With that said, I thought the book I Love Your Style by Amanda Brooks would be a refreshing and fun read. I’m not trying to get snapped by The Sartorialist, but ideally I’d like to be able to look back on pictures years down the road and smile!
Wild Alphabet, An A to Zoo Pop-Up Book
perfection. To me, the best gift for a child is a book. A dear friend recently gave the Wild Alphabet book to my daughter for her first birthday, and I’ve been stuck on it ever since. The illustrations are brilliant, and each animal is engaging as it literally pops off the page – getting her ready for an upcoming visit to the Bronx Zoo!
