    Buttoned Up

    If it comes with buttons, I’m of the belief you’re meant to use all of them. A shirt left undone reminds me too much of the ‘90s; it’s all so… so business casual. If my wardrobe is going to reflect some level of professionalism, it’s going to be all business, no apologies.

    Letter from the Editor

    Letter from the Editor

    Sitting down to write this editor’s letter has been the hardest thing I've done yet on my Preserve journey. I’m more intimidated than I should probably admit. I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat. I am hungry, though...and not just for enchiladas.

    Meet Chef Hung

    Chef Hung made sure to teach us all along the way. He and I have one big thing in common -- He loves food. And I love food. That makes us soul mates as far as I'm concerned! It's inspiring to be around someone that is so passionate about what they do." -B

    Office Yoga is the New Afternoon Latte

    When we practice yoga, we’re usually entertaining savory images of the mac and cheese we’re going to eat later. But Sophie Leininger—the designer of Magic Carpet Yoga Mats—her yogic visions are much more inspired. While enjoying her practice on an antique rug at home, she had a vision: “I imagined the shapes of the rug drifting onto my yoga mat,” Sophie says. She decided she would never use a boring mat again.

  • A French Connection Image


    A French Connection

    Paris is so mysteriously perfect: Do French women really wake up with that ready-to-wear bedhead? How do they make the Breton stripe so eternally chic? And do they actually shamelessly snack on bread, cheese and sweets, without ever stepping into a gym? Unfair. While we’re pondering the great injustices of life, meet our newest artisan. Fashion illustrator Daphne van den Heuvel really captures that Parisian je ne sais quoi we love so much, even though she is based in The Netherlands. We’re willing to overlook that if you are. Her prints will be on the Preserve site soon! Check out her interview below.

    Remember the best friend necklaces that when combined with your BFF’s formed a perfect heart? Those are old school. The Sweet Nothings collection from In God We Trust is new school and insanely cool. It’s no wonder—OG cool girl and owner of IGWT, Shana Tabor, has been known to inject her products with a witty edge.

    National Pizza Day & Contest

    Whoever deemed February 9th National Pizza Day is a personal hero of ours. There’s also a National Pizza With Everything (Except Anchovies) Day on November 12, but that’s neither here nor there. While we don’t really require a holiday to eat pizza, we certainly like any excuse to get festive. So instead of grabbing a slice, throw together your own pie on top of Renato’s pizza dough.

  • Valentine's Day Blues Image


    Valentine's Day Blues

    Nina Simone, who knew a little bit about loss, once sang: “I’d rather be lonely than happy with somebody else.” Billie Holiday got so familiar with her melancholy, she started saying good morning to her heartache. Those who are often unlucky in love might appreciate the lyric, “If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all,” from Born Under a Bad Sign, a classic blues ballad. It’s safe to say pink is out this year—blue is in.

    Featured Artisan: Sarah Ashley Longshore

    On a recent five-week creative sabbatical, Sarah Ashley Longshore operated almost exclusively on instinct, like a woman possessed. “I would wake up in the morning, and before I even made a cup of coffee, I would have a 54 by 54 canvas on an easel,” she recalls. “I don't even know what was driving me to do that!” The loquacious, red-lipped artist of 20 years, who goes by her middle name, considers her works much more than paint on canvas. They are a part of her, of the way she sees the world. “If I have an idea coming together in my mind, I paint it,” she explains. “And I will work like a wild woman for it!”
