serious faces and gallery walls.

in a continued whirlwind of amazingness, houston magazine is running a small feature on your favorite internet sensation (uh, i mean me in this instance) in their upcoming march issue, which allegedly hits the stands next week. ALLEGEDLY.

the online version went out yesterday, and even though i was/am about to die of a severe allergy situation, it really put a smile on my face. turns out laughter is the best medicine, but fame is the cure, homies! it could also be the massive allergy shot i got in the behinders, but i'm fo rill having a super couple of days (and kind of an amazing 2013). thanks a mill for all the support from alla y'all of late; you've really got no idea how much that means. my website is set to launch very soon, ready or not (it's totally not ready), so stay tuned. in the meantime, my very smart brother figured out that you can skip directly to the bit on me HERE.

farrow and ball: ocelot.

as a big fan of their paints, i completely stroked out when i saw the preview of new wallpapers by farrow and ball (via their instagram) circa 6 weeks ago. since then, it's been full-on stalk mode.

full-stalk mode, as in, yesterday at my local farrow and ball dealer, i LIT-RALLY went through a box that had just arrived in the mail in order to claim samples of my very own. because i couldn't wait for them to get filed, homies, specifically the ocelot pattern. holy. mother. cow. have y'all seen this yet? i mean like in person? if not, get up and on it, peeps. there are five wonderful colorways and the texture is incredible.

my faves--the darks--have got silver and gold metallic accents, for crying out loud. i'm also a big fan of the way F&B books their papers, showing complimentary paint colors - HOW HANDY, right? so basically, i can't wait to use this paper all over the place.

sneak peek: loftacular.

i used to live in a pretty rad loft downtown, during my single, bud light-and-twizzler days, and it was supes sads to leave the space behind (but i moved in with b-rad, so SILVER LINING). fortunately, i've gotten to design several great loft spaces of late, like this one you've seen previously and also one that got photographed on valentimes day, featuring custom wing chairs that are totally the cat's meeeeooooow. just kidding; that cat is glaring, but only because these chairs up 'n stole her catthunder. stay tuned FO MO.

trunk club.

obvs, i am enduring a great personal struggle with my time these days, trying to get the new company website (uh, and online store-yeeps) up and running, while simultaneously also getting the actual company off the ground and handling a surprising volume of clients, all the while maintaining a rigorous mani-pedi schedule. which is why there has been little to zero blogging, which is why i can't even respond to phone calls in a timely fashion, which is why i've enlisted the services of TRUNK CLUB, in order to make sure sugarbear's wardrobe is on and poppin' this 2013. it's pretty much a personal stylist that picks out MAN CLOTHES and mails them to you, and you send back whatever doesn't work. clearly, it's geared toward dudes, but i wear the pants when it comes to the pants b-radical is wearing, so me and amandalynn will be working together on a fresh look for the hubs this spring. headquartered in my previous hood (chicago), trunk club makes it a point to source items from local and smaller clothing/shoe/accessory vendors, so i anticipate seeing some very unique items when trunk numero uno shows up next week. also, if you're a trunk club member, you can make appointments to stop by the actual brick and mortar location in RiNo Chi, to hang out and drink old fashioned's whilst a probably adorable gal attends to your menswear needs. and the place looks like this, so basically, when are we going to chicago?

stay tuned, and feel free to sign up (or sign your man up) for trunk club, because i get some sort of reward for every referral. WINNING. seriously, click here because mama needs a new pair of shoes. for her husband.
