Canvass Hiatus

Canvass is taking some time to regroup, rebrand, and refresh.

We'll be back soon and better than ever. Promise!

Parcel is an amazing store in Montclair, NJ (just a train ride away from Manhattan) where I could lose myself for days and literally want to own everything inside it. Take a look at some of the treasure I saw and definitely head there for yourself! If you can't make it NJ, there is a pop up shop at Erica Tanov in NYC.

Obsession, Renewed: Frank Ocean

The first time I heard Frank Ocean's "Songs for Women" track I was hooked. The dude is an uber-talented singer/songwriter and his shit is right up my alley. I got his Nostalgia, Ultra album and played it to death--still do (Songs for Women, Love Crimes, Nature Feels - all highly recommended).

So when his latest, Channel Orange, dropped…oh, shit. More of my Frank! (Stream it here!) Plus, the blogosphere was abuzz about a post from his Tumblr--sharing the first time he fell in love, with a man. So he's bi, cool. Maybe he's gay, cool. But reading that post made me realize the true amazingness of Mr. Ocean. He's brave, articulate, deep, self-aware, flawed, beautiful and honest.

I could spend hours on his Tumblr. Fun, witty, interesting, thought provoking. In a word, inspiring.

Here's to you, Frank Ocean.

Going Camping

The heat has settled in the city and all I want to do is escape to nature. What better way to vacate than to sleep out under the stars. Here's what I'm taking with me.
