I’m not sure if I’ve ever truly disliked a NTM release, but I have definitely overly loved and admired many of the drops they’ve done, especially in 2014. July’s new 3-pack looks like another stellar set to me as Nike pairs up with husband-wife team Flavio Samelo and Jayelle Hudson, creating unique looks by combing the two artists work into one. Which is your favorite?
Also, has anyone out there ever purchased an NTM product? Worth the money in your opinion?
Sometimes I feel that I am thisclose to converting this into a board blog, but I can’t help what I like. As long as there are beautiful boards being made, I shall keep swooning and showing them.
This latest quartet is part of Free People‘s FP Movement collaboration with Quiksilver, world class shapers, and Pistache. They cost a pretty penny (like a few months rent), but are undeniably striking. The first one is my favorite since it has an 80s surf vibe.

Who doesn’t love a little tie-dye for summer? Well, we love tie-dye so much that we did three different types. Perhaps you’ve already peeked some of these over on Blogilates! The scrunch dye is my favorite of the bunch; I already snagged the bodysuit. What’s your favorite?

This is a PSA for Father’s Day, which is this upcoming Sunday should you be behind. If your dad is like mine, then the official World Cup match ball is the perfect gift. Easy. Done. This year’s model, the Brazuca, is super nice and has a unique texture unlike previous WC balls. It also feels considerably more solid than say the 2006 +Teamgeist. Get it here!
Also, here’s a bonus video from Paul Smith, who created his own limited edition World Cup ball. Sold out, unfortunately.
Summer 2014 is just starting to pour into the stores and online at Forever 21, and I’ve been waiting to share pieces of it. This season has a strong emphasis on softness and yoga influences, and I’m really excited about some of the key details, including our crochet textures. It’s an easy update to regular athletic mesh and a great option to layer for depth of color. There’s a second set for this group that will drop later this Summer that’s more of a spliced group, so keep any eye out for that.

First and foremost, I apologize if this turns into a World Cup blog temporarily. I will do my best to have some restraint from posting all things soccer.
That said, I love the World Cup and all the anticipation that comes with it. Besides the usual WC gear that comes around every four years, it’s the new and unexpected collections and collaborations that I enjoy the most. adidas’ Skate Copa presents a capsule of national decks for their team riders featuring classic and clean graphics. Do you have a favorite?
Summer’s comin’, and what I’m looking forward to most is SUP. While the boards I’ll be renting are a bit less glamorous, it’s nice to window shop these Saffron James beauties. Which is your favorite?
Available at Anthropologie, too, because why wouldn’t they carry surf boards?
Considering how aesthetically underwhelming the yoga mat market is, I’m surprised brands like La Vie Boheme Yoga haven’t popped up sooner or more frequently! I’ve seen plenty of DIY projects about how to paint your yoga mat with acrylic, but the end result is usually less than satisfying. It’s about time someone’s started to print their own collection of inspiring designs!
Check out LVBY’s assortment of three unique designs in various color ways here to see more.
How about these beauties for Friday inspiration? Deus Ex Machina partnered with shaper Takuya “Tappy” Yoshikawa for a series of incredibly rad boards. I am so taken with the psychedelic resin patterns that I’d love to see them applied to a number of products. Sadly, only available in Bali.
How about a festive workout outfit to get in the spirit of Valentine’s Day? Think pink today. Happy Valentine’s!
