Revisiting Talent With a Capital T

For those of you who have been reading this blog for a long time, you might remember this post , where I introduced you to two very talented people - Sandra of Miss November Studio and my brother, and performer, Paul.  Coincidentally, both of them - completely independently - launched new ventures that I wanted to share with you.

First up, is Sandra. Not only does she have a wonderful style and vintage sensibility (it's no coincidence that she works as a manager for Anthro!), you may remember that she's also a silversmith and jewelry designer. She recently created a brand new, shiny, and super cute website, including a very fun blog. Please check it out here or by clicking on the image below.



My brother Paul is a musician, beatboxer, and performer. He did an amazing cover of Coldplay's Viva la Vida (he beatboxes or sings all the instrumental parts as well as the the vocal parts!) which you can watch here (I highly recommend it - haha, he's my kid brother, so when it comes to him, I'm not easily impressed. His rendition of Viva la Vida really impressed me). He recently released a new music video of his original composition, Ill with Love, which I hope you'll check out below.



Enjoy and have a great Friday!

  3. OMG, I know Sandra. She works at my favorite Anthro and is always so nice and pleasant every time I shop there (every week, sometimes more, lol). I agree, she definitely has a wonderful vintage style. What a nice feature, it's so good to see her on here.
