You’re in for a treat with this post, folks! I’m sure by now you’ve seen the crazy photos that are being posted about Color Factory, a two-story color experience with room after room of Instagram-worthy set ups spear-headed by the ever-visionary, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, in San Francisco. Last week I took a quick trip to see it in person.
Did your parents have shelves lined with thick photo albums full of family memories like mine? These days, our pictures often just end up taking space on our phones or sitting in files on our desktops. What’s the fun in that? Don’t get me wrong, I love being able to save, store, and share my photos online, but there is something so special about having tangible photos. Especially when it comes to the really important events: vacations, family gatherings, new babies, and of course, weddings!
Which is exactly why I jumped on the opportunity to preserve my wedding photos in the Wedding Albums Collection by Artifact Uprising. They offer the most custom print experience for your photos, grouping together their beautiful products so you can celebrate your special day for years to come. The minute I saw them, I knew immediately these would become family heirlooms. They’re THAT GOOD. From the foil-stamped cover to the ultra-thick luster paper, I can’t get enough of it! Looking through the pictures makes me so giddy, and makes me appreciate everything and everyone that was involved in our wedding. Every bride and groom should put this at the top of their wish list. Wrap them up in a pretty fabric envelope to ensure they’ll stay pristine throughout the years!

Adding a bit of fashion to your reading repertoire never hurts, right? In August we’ll be reading about Grace Coddington, the creative director of American Vogue since 1988. Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington is an honest, candid, and often funny look at the fashion world, how it has changed, how Grace started her career, and how she ended up as one of fashion’s greatest icons. The book is filled with her witty observations, lovely Vogue photos, and also Grace’s very own charming illustrations. We hope you enjoy it, whether you’re a fashion guru or not. Coddington has met incredible people and traveled far and wide. It’s a captivating behind-the-scenes look at an artistic, capricious industry! Find the book here and be sure to tune into @larsbookclub as we discuss Grace this month.
Can you believe it’s already August? Which means we’ve got our August 2017 wallpaper downloads! We’re getting into the thick of summer and I wish it would last forever! I love long summer days when it’s in the 70’s and the sun is still shining into the evening hours. There are so many things to do in the summer: art walks, festivals, berry picking, swimming, and state fairs. Gumballs seem to be a perfect representation of those carefree summer days! So savor the last month of summer with this colorful desktop and phone wallpaper. It will act as a daily reminder to enjoy the simple pleasures!
