"This is the first handcrafted scent by NY artist Anicka Yi and architect Maggie Peng. The fragrance is inspired by the Fusako Shigenobu, former leader of the Japanese Red Army, who was believed to be in exile in Lebanon for many years after orchestrating some of the group's most political statements. Yi and Peng have chosen cedar wood as a central theme of this fragrance's narrative, as cedar is highly regarded in Lebanon as a national emblem. The scent uses three different kinds of cedar wood as its base note, along with violet leaf and nutty heart notes, and top notes of yuzu, shiso leaf, and black pepper. The packaging for this hand-distilled fragrance is made of raw cedar wood, each bottle uniquely (and painstakingly) hand-cut by the creators in architectural geometry, encasing a 10ml glass bottle of liquid within. Available in a new split light/rose cedar wood bottle - available alone for $85." -
Dun-Well Doughnuts in Brooklyn, New York. I can't even express how much I love you. The best part... is that no one expects any doughnuts to be Vegan... but these are. They ALL are. Incredible. I think it's pretty easy to say they're slapping every other doughnut in the face- with no added sugar. Okay, maybe a little. Photo by veg news.

I spotted a girl on the train the other day with a Peg & Awl canvas tote, so naturally I had to pull out my headphones and ask her where to get one! Some of my favorites are below- including the wax canvas tote, lunch carriers, and ipad easel...
"Our work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, longlasting treasures. We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone." -M. and W. Kent
