Tara Stiles

I just remembered what makes me feel better when I’m in the slumps. Yoga. Yoga was my BFF until an unfortunate eye-opening experience at the Yogaville Ashram. I have had a hard time finding a yoga instructor I can trust ever since. You know who never lets me down and helps keep the creepy pseudo-Hinduism out of my practice? The most wonderful yoga-lady ever. Tara fucking Stiles.

An ex-ballerina turned model she runs the studio Strala in NYC. I wish I could take class there. However, her free podcasts have served me well for the past two years. I’m glad to see her gaining more and more recognition. Here are some of my favorites.

These are all pretty gentle, but damn sometimes when I try out a new one when I would have better luck levitating than pulling off those moves. Check out her youtube Channel here.

I’d love to see more local Yoga Teachers follow her lead and focus on scientifically proven yoga benefits and leave the spiritual side to the individual to discover.

Today I feel like The Jealous Curator on the internet. Except for the fact, I’m probably at the point where this lurking voyeurism has gone too far and I don’t feel inspired I just feel like shit.  I’m dying to get out of the house and up my photography game.  Not only is Beth Hoeckel great at collage – look how cool her photographs are.

What do you guys do when you’re feeling lazy and down on yourself / the internet isn’t helping? Maybe I just need some coffee…

I know summer just started and all, but the Mulberry Fall campaign is so cute I’m absolutely ready to fast forward to September. Note the Lana Bag.

Everything I can get my hands on by Purity Ring is golden.  I can’t wait for July 24th for their first LP SHRINES to come out.

I love the girly girl meets biker rebel (ha) styling of this collection. The payphone shoot looks awesome and is a great corresponding location for the retro feel of these looks.


Lana Del Rey Appreciation Post

Lana Del Rey – National Anthem

I feel like Lana Del Rey needs no introduction at this point. Love her or hate her, I don’t care. I’m hooked and I’m completely obsessed with her music and her image.
