It's that time of year again and Renegade Craft Fair will be back in SF for their Holiday Market. It is being held on December 15th and 16th this year at the Concourse Exhibition Center. The fair is a great source of craft inspiration as well as an excellent resource for unique gifts. I can't wait to go! -Lana
I make my children wash their hands frequently, but my son tends to use too much soap. Enter - Method soaps. I like that their foaming wash pumps out just enough soap and washes off cleanly without much trace of a scent. A while back, I purchased Method's Mickey Mouse soap, which was a cute Mickey Mouse shape and had a light lemonade scent. There was also a Minnie Mouse soap which had a strawberry smell. Both are still available at some Target stores and through other online retailers. Method recently launched limited edition soaps with Orla Kiely. They are available through Method's online shop, but I have also seen them at Target. They are a nice stylish accent for the bathroom or kitchen.
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Target designer collaborations. As I was browsing through the Target website looking for information about the upcoming September debut of the Shops at Target (Patch NYC, The Curiosity Shoppe, Kirna Zabete and Odin), I found several articles about Target's holiday collaboration with Neiman Marcus. Read about the CFDA designers who are participating in this collaboration (24 in all) here. You had me at Marchesa and Marc Jacobs. -Lana
Here are a few Instagram'd pictures of Seoul and Busan. I'm still thinking of the sites, the food, the people, and the energy of these cities.
[SEOUL] Changdukkung Palace (the Queen's Palace, a World Heritage Site)
[SEOUL] Insadong District - full of good restaurants, antiques, and inexpensive souvenirs
[SEOUL] Gangnam District - My favorite place to people-watch in Seoul
[BUSAN] Jagalchi Market - Huge fish market where you purchase the seafood on the first floor and can have it brought up to the second floor to be cooked any way you like. Eating seafood sashimi-style is the most popular since everything is so fresh.
[BUSAN] Haeundae Beach - Empty now, but this is where everyone flocks to in the hot and humid summer months
[BUSAN] Shinsegae - The largest mall in the world according to the 2009 Guinness Book of World Records
[BUSAN] Street vendor selling flowers for Parents' Day
