Friends Gale Straub and Jon Gaffney (the Van Man) have officially taken off on their adventure – a year in their retro fitted van on the American roads. Along with their trip, Gale has launched her website She Explores, where she will be posting interviews with other women on the road, travel guides, artist features, camp food, gear reviews and posts from her day to day experiences. I can’t wait to follow their trip . . . as I sit pretty, green with envy, back in Cambridge.

My good friend Jon Gaffney is setting off on a year long road trip in a retrofitted van. While on the road, he’ll be partnering with the folks at Huckberry to document “America’s makers, bakers, movers, and shakers”. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them to suggest Jon visit your city and chat with you and your neighbors. Also, not to be missed, is Jon’s co-traveller and girlfriend Gale Straub’s website She Explores (read more here). It’s going to be quite a ride.
The folks of SeaVees (from the other coast) were kind enough to send me a pair of their Army Issue sneakers at the beginning of the summer. Since then, I’ve barely taken them off and have been instagramming moments with them. I wear them on weekdays and weekends, on vacation and at home, in rain and in sunshine. They are some of the most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever worn and the hemp breaks in beautifully. The style of the Army Issue is inspired by the sporting footwear worn by soldiers in the 60’s at Fort Irwin, Mojave Desert, California. SeaVees was founded in the 1960’s in Santa Barbara, CA. True to its roots, the brand embodies the carefree spirit of Santa Barbara along with an astute appreciation for authenticity. This is evidenced in their shoes – comfortable, utilitarian, and designed for adventures. I hope you’ll continue to follow me and my SeaVees on instagram!
Justin Chung, one of my favorite photographers, is working on his first book of photography. Faculty Department will be an exploration of the creative people that Justin has gotten to know. He documents them in their daily lives, exploring what makes these talented people unique and interesting . . . and in the end, will be an excellent documentation of Justin’s talents as well. I look forward to seeing the finished product.
My good friends Ursa Major up in the motherland (Vermont) have launched their summer sweepstakes – a year supply of their Essential Face Wipes! I never travel without these wipes, they are deep cleansing, fresh, and good for your skin (no parabens or any of that icky artificial stuff). They’ll be drawing one winner on August 15th so follow the link to enter. And stay tuned because every weekday till then, they’ll be doing a drawing for a 20-pack of wipes giveaway. It’s what I like to call, Christmas in August.
