The first time I heard about the Swedish DJ Sanna La Fleur was via the video from H&M Life: A day with DJ Sanna La Fleur – H&M Life, where she talks about her record label Power Plant and a small clothing collection called Power Plant Elements.
Now Selected Sounds by Herschel Supply have an interview with her where she talks about her favorites tracks at the moment among other things. Great links worth listening too.
I really like her music/mixes and recommend you to check out her stuff at soundcloud.
My favorite photo app on my iPhone is definitely the VSCO Cam from Visual Supply Co (VSCO). VSCO also make awesome presets for Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw.
They have now updated the photo app, VSCO Cam, which is available now. I couldn’t agree more with how VSCO describes their app. “Pushing the boundaries of possibility, VSCO Cam aims to redefine mobile photography. Superior image processing technology combined with an efficient and minimalist interface, VSCO Cam is the tool of choice for creating beautiful mobile imagery”.
I loved the first version and love the new updated version even more. It contains many more very cool presets and it still have the easy editing tools. With the update they also released VSCO Grid – a free minimalist publishing platform for people to showcase their mobile photography, which is right now in the beta.
If you have an iPhone I highly recommend you try it out and best of all its free Get it in the app store.
I found this article about a fun DIY Screwdriver Car Key project on Highsnobiety.com. The Screwdriver Car Key is meant to impersonate the look of a stolen car with a screwdriver jammed into the ignition and make you feel like a grand theft auto thug. If you want to make your own visit HAHA BIRD to get a etailed instructions.
One store I definitely need to visit if I ever go to Tokyo, Japan is the Tokyu Hands store. In this video from Monocle they take us inside the “description-defying Tokyo institution that sells just about everything you could ever need and is loved by everyone who visits”.
Now we talk about Monocle. They had made the first book which will be released in September 2013 by Gestalten Verlag.
The book is called The Monocle Guide to Better Living, this is an “informative and entertaining collection of writing and recommendations from across the globe. They have surveyed locations, products and ideas to create the ultimate reference for inspirational ways to improve your life”.
