Celebrating Spring

In honor of the first days of spring Rebena is counting down some of the best things about the warm-weather season ahead.

1) With Daylights Saving Time in full effect, we are happy to say long SAD and hellooo happy hour.

2) Temperatures are on the rise, meaning bare legs, bright hues and chic spring jackets.

3) Rebena is loving this season’s lacquer lineup – pedicures are perfect for pairing with the upcoming sandal weather!

4) Frequent rain showers means breaking out your favorite vintage trench.

5) Which leads to flowers in bloom – tulips in their prime are the new Insta-bait.

6) Charity season is in full swing and Rebena’s all about doing good..  and looking good while doing it!

7) Toronto day trips are in order! Rebena spends her weekends frolicking in High Park and vintage hunting at the Wychwood Barn.

How are you planning to celebrate springtime this year?   Will you be shopping for a trendy floral dress, planning a garden or simply splashing in the puddles? Let Rebena know in the comment section below!  We’d love to hear how you celebrate!  Happy Spring!

Playing With Breakfast

NYC-based artists Josie Keefe and Phyllis Ma may boast prestigious Columbia University degrees and full-time gigs — but really, they’re just looking for an excuse to play with their food. These days, the prop stylist and window dresser, respectively, are creating striking food images that are quite unlike the waffle-and-latte breakfast shots you’re used to double-tapping. Their photo project is called LAZY MOM, and it’s anything but ordinary. Pine1

Instead of your average Instagram #foodporn, the artists (who credit everything from Toilet Paper mag to — you guessed it — lazy moms as the inspiration for their still-life shots) are slashing pineapples, puncturing cantaloupes, and creating stacked sculptures from day-old lunch meat, all “in pursuit of the transcendent through the mundane.”
Pine2“We create portraits and landscapes that unveil deeper desires and secret daydreams,” Keefe adds. “We use common objects such as fruit, eggs, dishware, and money combined in paradoxical formations. These carefully manipulated arrangements create a landscape of domestic detritus where the real and fake merge to form the surreal.”
Pine4The pair plans to keep playing with food in innovative ways and eventually release a book — which will probably make for an fascinating coffee-table staple. For now, you can scoop up their first ‘zine at the PS1 store and keep an eye out for their exhibition at the Good Work Gallery in September. But first, click through to see what they’re working with.

Scrunchies of Instagram

The moment Rebena found Scrunchies of Instagram, she was hypnotized.  It turns out the kinda, sorta, maybe cool again scrunchie is an accessory of glory… for forever.
