Ahhh Sunday. I feel like its already a characteristically slow day, it is after all the day of rest and many people get the luxury of spending it that way! This will be a new series where I will share some things going on in my life and in the world of the slow movement.
I have been reading this Y.A. book series I got for my birthday called The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. It is freaking incredible. Stiefvater is an amazing story teller that has you so sucked in that you can hardly think of anything else. I love a YA series were boys take the main stage and the Raven Boys is just that (don't worry there is a girl front and center too!). This is very dark, twisty with lots of the occult. Taking things from dreams, being best friends with a ghost and searching for a mythical king all while struggling with the day to day life of high school students are just a few of the things that happen in this series. If you are into fantasy and like a well written book this is for you. Even if you don't dabble in the Young Adult world I highly recommend this series. Put on a pot of tea and call yourself in sick because you won't want to put these down until you finish.
John Bartlett and Ruthie Davis have partnered to make a vegan shoe line called Ruthie Davis (Heart) (the original article was found on Ecouterre, a great site if your interested in eco-fashion). You may remember some of John's stuff if you have been reading my blog for awhile in the year (Day FortyTwo, Day OneHudredFiftyEight). I bought the pig shirt. I love his tiny tim fund design which is the design on these shoes. Davis already has a wonderful vegan eco-friendly line of shoes and this partnership makes me ECSTATIC. Eco-friendly comes with a price though, all designs start at about $400. They will be available in Spring 2014. Better start saving my pennies now!
