They’re an independent t-shirt maker and upon visiting the website, you’ll find that this isn’t the only statement they’re highlighting on their tees.

Buster’s Mal Heart

Since we have a serious crush on Rami Malek, we’ll pretty much watch anything he’s in. I’m actually very excited about this career and where he’s headed. Upon watching the trailer, it’s easy to get stuck in that thought that he’s being pigeon-holed into the same character he is in Mr. Robot, but the movie trailer still has me very curious. I’m looking forward to seeing his transformation as what we believe to be as him being a normal family man turned into fugitive.

Malek as a hard-working family man named Jonah who seems burned out by his life. During one of his shifts as a nighttime hotel concierge, he meets a conspiracy theorist named Brown (played by DJ Qualls). A series of clips showcases Jonah battling with his psyche as he evades the police by hiding out in remote areas. We eventually find him alone on a mountaintop, but the details leading up to the scene are vague. Watch the trailer above and catch Buster’s Mal Heart, written and directed by Sarah Adina Smith, in select theaters April 28.

Nike’s Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Mid in Dark Green

This is a very long name for a sneaker. When I saw these on Hypebeast today, I couldn’t take my eyes off of them! For one, we’ve been obsessed with our Oreo Flyknits since the day that we got them and we’d take them in every color and style if we could! We feel very drawn to the dark green though because you know…northwest, but also how good does this look against the leather? It’s the perfect combination of soft and delicate with something that’s a little bit more rough around the edges. We’ll take one pair of these, please! Now… to come up with $185.00.

Top Smartphone Apps of 2016

When Veronica and I grabbed lunch together the other day, we started to think about how much a difference four years can make. We graduated in 2012 and in 2016, so much in our lives have changed. I’m now living in California while she is in Seattle and hello! Married! However, in the larger scheme of things not only has our world changed – but the country’s and how we do things in our day to day lives. We were talking about the different tech companies in the Bay Area and all of a sudden we are both like, “How did we function without Uber in our lives?!” “What did we do while we were in college?” For one thing, I was still using a Blackberry! Those things are practically extinct now. It’s fitting that this report was published above about the top apps being used on smartphones. Google and Facebook continue to dominate as always.

The Aftermath of Black Friday

All I have to say is, thank god I don’t have to participate in Black Friday anymore whether it is as a shopper or as a salesperson working in retail. There used to be this sort of allure around Black Friday that kind of intrigued me and I can only remember it for one year. It was the night after Thanksgiving and my local mall was having this thing where they opened early and there was a performance and I was meeting up with my best friend and I was eating it all up. I don’t think it is like that at all anymore and this photo proves just how chaotic the whole event can be. This photo was taken at a Nike outlet in Seattle on Black Friday and it looks like the customers just came in and destroyed the place. How is this going to be a fun shopping environment for anyone? It’s one of the reasons why I can’t be bothered with shopping at outlets or thrifting anymore because it’s the sifting part that gives me such anxiety. Ain’t nobody got the patience for that – at least I don’t. -_-

Here’s hoping that all of you can stay safe and shop online (hello Cyber Monday!) or hopefully today you shopped for Small Business Saturday!

Nike’s “Triple Black” Flyknit Racer

*swoon*

On this Thanksgiving, I am very grateful that my brother instilled in me a love for shoes – sneakers in particular. Is it too early for us to begin crafting up our Christmas wish list? This may be at the top! They’ll sit nicely next to my Oreo Flyknit Racers that I got from Kevin LAST Christmas!

Nike unveiled their “Triple Black” flyknit racer and it is so beautiful. These will be on sale starting November 30th… leaves me enough time for them to get under our family Christmas tree…

Would You Eat It?

This is so weird to me. Pringles is coming out with a new line for the holidays that includes “cookie flavored” chips. But, why can’t we just eat cookies without it having to be in chip form? The flavors we have to choose from include: Pecan Pie, Sugar Cookie, and Salted Caramel. I think I am… not rushing to try any one of those! However, I am a fan of the packaging; nice move on coating it with Christmas sweater print. You’ll be able to buy these in your local grocery store soon, but like maybe you’ll just want to buy regular cookies and regular chips instead.

A Blue Bottle Cafe in Tokyo

Meanwhile, Kevin informed me today that Seattle still has zero Blue Bottles. lol.

Blue Bottle opened a new location in Tokyo this fall and was designed by the team at Schematic Architects. This marks their 5th location in collaboration with Schematic and by coincidence, this new location in Nakameguro just happens to be right across the street from the former Schematic headquarters.

Apple’s New Campus is Extravagant

This aerial tour of Apple’s new campus in Cupertino is kind of crazy. I knew it was going to be massive, but I didn’t know just how large and dominating it would be. The video (shot on a drone) by Matthew Roberts shows the work and progress that has been done up until pretty much today, but there’s still a lot left to finish before employees begin to move into the space in early 2017. I’ve actually driven by parts of this every now and then since this is in my backyard, and sometimes it’s a little overwhelming. I realize I work in tech and some of these things should still feel normal to me, but after three years, some parts of are a lot to take in.

I actually can’t wait to see all the articles that will be on this space after its completion.

*for real, I almost just wrote “Best, Katie” instead of Source…because that’s how many emails I’ve been writing lately.

Late At Night I Think About…

Dessert! Boutique ice cream shops are all the rage right now, but I remember way back when I used to beg my Dad to just take me to the local Baskin-Robbins. Those were the DAYS! I watched this video and instantly became hungry. The internet is a dangerous thing sometimes.

Herschel Supply Co. for HYPEBEAST Heritage Backpack

photo cred | Hypebeast

I’m a huge fan of functional accessories. When I was in high school and even college, I used to know girls who frequently bought new purses every quarter. Somehow, I could never justify spending hundreds of dollars on something like that. There’s nothing wrong if that’s what you prefer, of course. But I just really like my $15 Urban Outfitters cross-body purse that I’ve been clutching onto for three years. Yesterday, I received my Herschel Supply Duffel and while this was my first purchase from them, I’ve actually been using their product (Kevin’s!) for a couple of years now. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan now and all I want to do is encourage others to try out their products. Herschel Supply recently collaborated with a blog that I read called Hypebeast to create this limited edition Heritage Backpack.

The limited edition bag will be released in conjunction with the upcoming fifth issue of HYPEBEAST Magazine. Pertaining to the issue’s theme of ‘Process,’ both sides explored the creative and manufacturing process of the project, with an ultimate goal to share the experience with readers. While the process of creation as an art in itself is something that is often overlooked, HYPEBEAST and Herschel Supply Co. were motivated to offer an interesting insight into that progression.

Sold exclusively only in HYPEBEAST stores, there will only be about 80 of them available starting October 2nd and at $140 a pop!
