spotted: around the office

Who’s got great style? Well, our office sure does! We played paparazzi for the afternoon trying to capture “who wore it best”. In the end, we think they were all winners…

she can leap tall buildings

We recently stumbled upon this creative series from California-based photographer Heidi Lender. Once fashion reporter and yoga instructor, her work “She Can Leap Tall Buildings” celebrates the juggling act women tend to play in their daily lives. A nod to her mother and her own mountain of responsibilities, each composition captures a unique illustration of…

We are now wondering…

unplug it

Image via Santa Rosa Mom It’s hard to imagine the last time we actually went longer than a couple of our hours (let alone 24) without using our smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.  After all, we rely on our smartphones for everything from waking us up in the morning to getting the latest Twitter update.
