Milwaukee Art Museum is currently featuring an exhibit of Modern Rebels who were game changers in the world of fine arts. You’re probably familiar with most of them. A short list of the 68 master makers includes Frida, Pollock, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalí, Miró, & Lichtenstein. It’s so wonderful to walk through works from around 1900 to 1960, and view each piece as a stepping stone in the timeline until now. Strong vibes of surrealism, cubism, Fauvism, and abstraction all staring each […]
Last Tuesday, I turned 28. What better way to celebrate than to surround yourself in art–and what better place to do that than The MCA in Chicago? And what better to wear than a killer T-Shirt? Take a look at this Shape Shifter Tee by Curated Cotton. It’s incredibly soft and comfy and created by a couple of kick ass girls. They have several different designs and each one is screen printed by hand (see the process here).
I have to admit, that navigating through the whole wedding game, I’ve felt very out of place. I’m a corny person by nature, but so much of the expected behavior felt beyond corny to me. My fiancé and I did our best to pick and choose what things made sense for us, and what we wanted to avoid. We definitely wanted to make sure that family and friends played key roles in the process. So obviously, the folks in our wedding party were […]
I have loved surrealism before I even knew what it was. Cloudy messages and hidden meanings give me such a thrill. Being straight forward in the art world can be such a snooze-fest. I enjoy being left to my own devices, plopped in the middle of a confusing painting that I must figure out and enjoy based off clues and my own feelings and agendas. The rush of surrealism comes in the form of a brain unchained. This 20th-century avant-garde […]
Sometimes you get that new Nike itch and you just gotta scratch it. Here are my top picks from Nike.com. Can y’all help me pick out what to get? Poll ends tomorrow at noon. I’ll be placing me order soon after. Thanks. Y’all rock.
The Holiday Season is always better with a visit to an art museum, especially when showing the ‘rents around Pittsburgh for the first time. The Carnegie Museum of Art has a great permanent collection and rotating exhibits. It’s no wonder since it’s been around since 1895. In fact, it was among the first of America’s modern art museums– created by Andrew Carnegie to be a tribute to the “Old Masters of tomorrow.”
The city of Nashville and what is considered to be “music country” is located in the north central region of Tennessee, nestled into the Cumberland River. It has a sweet skyline and the downtown area is easy to get around on foot. If you travel down Broadway towards the river, you’ll hear live country music pouring out of every bar and saloon. Contrary to belief, even if you’re not a country fan, Nashville is still a fun city. Trust me, I have […]
I know, I know, it’s incredibly cliché to start off a post with a definition, but bare with me. sneakerhead /ˈsnēkərˌhed/ (noun) 1. A person who is inexplicably obsessed with sneakers, rarely seen wearing any other shoe form, willing to spend far too much money on footwear, and way too eager to talk about it. 2. A person with a sneaker for a head. So maybe I made that up, but either way you look at it, I guess I am a real […]
Tinsley House in Bozeman, MT is over 100 years old, and life goes on about as if no time has passed since the day it was built. The entire structure was moved from its original location of Willow Creek so it could be near the Museum of the Rockies. A staff, dressed in the traditional garb of the day, runs the homestead. Fresh pies are baked daily, a metal smith and carpenter are on staff, maintaing the property, and the […]

I’m big on birthdays. I mean big. I’m not sure why. It’s not like I hope for huge mind-blowing presents or anything like that. It’s just so exciting to have a day where everyone congratulates you for being born and hanging around for another year. I also like dragging the special days out for as long as possible– to milk it for all it’s worth. It only comes once a year after all. Now my birthday is in August, so this post […]
