Happy Father’s Day to the most fun person I know. Thank you for all of the laughs, advice and help throughout the years. I honestly don’t know where I would be without your love.
We are rarely that deep in the Mission (24th & Harrison), so I took the opportunity to hit up Humphry Slocombe before a show at the Brava Theatre. Although the line wasn’t anything compared to BiRite Creamery, the staff took a lot more time to dole out ice cream to customers.
Since it was included in the 7×7 Big Eat 2013 list, I chose the Blue Bottle Vietnamese coffee ice cream. Although it was good, I wasn’t blown away. I normally like Blue Bottle’s iced coffee but didn’t feel enough of it in the ice-cream. Humphry Slocombe’s Secret Breakfast ice cream is much more interesting and different, which I recommend trying instead.
With #altnyc just around the corner, I thought a little logo refresh was in the books. After taking an Alt Summit channel class earlier this week on business card design, I was more than inspired to get a new look together. I played around with a few color options but kept reverting to the classic black and white. Very chic and clean with a fun scripted ampersand.
Ollie & Seb’s Haus recent living room pictures are a monochromatic dream. Not only do I love the painted white floors and simple black decor pieces, but the ‘Le Chat’ print has me written all over it.
Thanks to one of my favourite reads the dieline, I discovered the clever and cute branding of Small Talk Vineyards. The wine is from the Niagara region in Ontario, Canada (yay!) and the branding/packaging was designed by Brandever from Vancouver, Canada (double yay!).
It is the perfect wine to gift a hostess or to plop down at a dinner table as a conversation piece. The handwritten font and fun sayings add an eclectic personal touch.
