Non-criminal creative abandonment: killing creativity, p. 3

[Free People Tattered Up shred slip + Madigan cardigan + Free People coin necklace.] I’m trying to decide why, at this point in my life, I’m so upset I haven’t ended up doing something more creative.

Domaine Rolet · 2011 · Côtes du Jura Rouge · Les Grandvaux · Jura, France

From a geographical standpoint, the Jura is not all that complicated. Just four regional appellations comprise this north/south swath east of Burgundy: Arbois, Côtes du Jura, Château-Chalon, and L’Etoile.

Wine Review: 2011 · Folk Machine · Three Ceremonies · Mendocino, CA

It’s an exciting time for wine in the New World. I’m not going say a revolution is in the works, but we are seeing some encouraging signs. Enough winemakers are willing to make wines a little differently and enough people are willing to buy those wines—and that’s all it takes. A new generation of winemakers […]

We had a blast hanging out with Christie—creator of RVA’s coolest handmade ties, and designer behind Fibre Craft. Christie and I met up for a beer a couple of months ago at Ipanema and talked RVA, fashion, blogging, and careers, and she gave me a serious case of do-what-you-love-itis. Because she’s putting some major time, […]
