Had the opportunity to celebrate Chinese New Year for the first time this past weekend.  Decided to take a little trip to the Hsi Lai Temple in Hacienda Heights.  Such a beautiful place.  The hour I was there, I felt i was in another country.  Here are some of the photos I took. Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Teppei Teranishi, a former musician, is the founder of the brand Teranishi. The brand’s focus is on simplicity with the influence of music and architecture.  Teppei emphasizes the highest quality of material in all his products buying directly from tanneries here in the US.  I find it intriguing how all products are made by hand himself.  Hand-crafted products speak volume.  Below are pictures his products.

Meticulous Ink from Cereal on Vimeo.

To me, the most important and enjoyable building block to starting your own brand is the “BRANDING.”  Everything from the logo, the business cards, the stickers, and packets.  I find it very special when brands take the time to perfect every detail involved in their designs.  

I found this video while I was laying in bed about this company called Meticulous Ink.  They are a printing company located in England.  I love their contemporary style and the passion put into their craft.  They hold printing at a very high standard.  I want to share this video with you because printing is a huge part of branding and I find it enjoyable watching a company put such perfection into it.

You know what they say, "Do As The French!"

I’m not trying to say I medicate on organics or anything, but if I ever needed to, I would definitely prefer “Mad Blunts.” But if you’re more of the “joint” type, here are quick step-by-step instructions on how to properly roll your ganja the French way.  I wouldn’t question their routine either since relaxing is mandatory for the French.
