Can you believe its Friday already? Well, here's to Friday afternoon (of a long weekend for the americans) ~ and to kick it off, here's your digital dose of happy hour, rounded up from what was sipped at Liqurious this week! Click those images to find out more info! Chin chin!
Jewelry seemed to be the main theme this week on NotCouture. There's a crazy Jaeger-LeCoultre watch that doubles as a keyless entry for the Aston Martin DBS (how James Bond!). And the other mini-theme seemed to be coats and jackets as we're about to transition into Autumn (how is summer almost over??). If jewelry and coats aren't your thing, there's plenty of other stuff to check out at NotCouture, and of course keep sharing your cool finds with us!

Sorry running a bit late on my Liqurious Happy Hour this week ~ let's just say i finally feel like i'm taking a slight vacation for the next few days, popped up to SF for Outside Lands, but the madness has been a bit much to take, and its freeeeeeeezing, so been doing some catching up with linhchi, shopping/decorating for dan for burning man, and running around the city buying silly toys and making things again (yay!) ~ so the next few days may be a bit more silly posts than usual! BUT, here are some of the things people have been drinking in the last week ~ how gorgeous are they? Click to see more!
Also, you can peek at my Outside Lands pics here!
There were a good amount of shoes popping up on NotCouture this week.. Or maybe it just seemed that way because I'm currently on a quest for shoes. And of course, we need bags to go with our shoes, so here are some interesting ones that were posted. I especially liked the accordion-like bag from Samsonite Black Label!
Happy Friday everyone! So to help kick off your happy hour this week, here's what we've been drinking with our eyes over at Liqurious. One of these days we will definitely have to start holding some real in person happy hours to meet up! As usual, click the images to find out more!
It feels like the weekend has begun already ~ things have gotten so quiet (or it feels so in my world anyhow?)... and i feel like a drink... so here's a friday afternoon Liqurious Happy Hour roundup to get your drink inspiration going... you know the drill, click the squares to find out more!
As with all our roundups, click the images to find out more! As you can see, this week these aren't your usual drinks!
So for those of you asking "What is Molecular Mixology?" - Well, lets begin with Molecular Gastronomy, which Peter Barham says is "The application of scientific principles to the understanding and improvement of domestic and gastronomic food preparation." and Harold McGee says is "The scientific study of deliciousness."... Molecular Mixology = Art + Science +Drinks = unexpected multisensory experiences and experiments! Liquids take the forms of liquid filled spheres (as tiny as caviar, as large as tablespoons), cotton candy, gels, dusts, sorbets, foams, infusions and more. Your traditional martini can transform into a Martini Infused Cucumber or Martini Sorbet with Olive Caviar ~ as you can imagine, the forms and experiences drinks can take are now nearly endless!
This weekend on Liqurious i've been rounding up all that i can find, which ended up being articles, recipes, videos, etc ~ and the definite leader in the Molecular Mixology space (particularly online), Jamie Boudreau, , who blogs at Spirits & Cocktails, and is even moderating the seminar on the subject at this weeks' Tales of the Cocktail.
So as some of you know, i've been quietly playing with Liqurious for the last 2-3 weeks. And i'm terrible at keeping my new projects under wraps when i get excited, so although i'm still not considering unofficially launched ~ i couldn't resist posting a roundup of it, and share the header we had so much fun designing! When we were playing with the whole TasteSpotting thing, i realized how beautiful mixology and the art of cocktails are, and seeing as i can never resist posting about great advertising and packaging from the drinks industry on NOTCOT anyhow, it seemed natural to move in that direction. Liqurious is basically the new NOTCOT space for beautiful drinks, drink related products, drink experiences, new product launches, packaging/drink reviews, and i don't even know what else yet... so here's your sneak peek to come help me decide what direction to take it. What would you like to see? What's missing? What sites should i be reading? And most of all, if you come across a great article, product, post, etc, please feel free to help out by submitting it here or just click the dripping green "add next image" drop. (Oh, and FYI, your logins from any of our sites will work on Liqurious as well!)
Love to hear your thoughts ~ take a peek on the next page at the roundup of 25 to give you a quick overview of some of the great content over there...
It's that time again... NotCouture roundup! Click the pics to find out more!
Hope you all had a great 4th of July! And now the work week approaches which is reason enough to give anyone the summertime blues. Here are some items to help you express your inner blueness, and one crazy silver crab bracelet that's just too awesome not to share!
You know the drill ~ click the images to find out more! I'm kind of kicking into SUPERearly long weekend mode ~ yay for 4th of July coming up on Friday (seriously, is it just me, or doesn't today just feel like a Friday?)... and as a result, i'm consuming info and images like no other, yet i can't seem to focus enough to sit down, photoshop, make proper posts, or respond to emails well... SO, that naturally leads to much .org-ing ~ so here is a selection of my personal post obsessions the last few days!
NotCouture Roundup! You know the drill, click the images to find out more!
4th of July weekend is coming up, so we thought we'd pick some stuff that you can wear to all those upcoming backyard pool parties and BBQs. From cute poolside attire to lightweight shirts and jackets, we've got you covered!
Hey everyone, sorry i got quiet ~ legal messes aren't quite my specialty. And how odd that doing a roundup of the popular stuff from the last week is filled with Crying Men portraits, girls getting things "dumped" on them, crazy futuristic architecture, ikea's pop up apt in a box, and i LOVE those spacey looking images of bubbles and real images of space! It's been an odd week, but almost through it ~ so apologies for slowing down here... but i have lots of fun stuff to post coming up, just a few more things to take care of! So please feel free to click through any of these pics to find out more, and check out .org and NotCouture for more inspiration... also feel free to take a sneak peek at my unlaunched new project where i'm drowning my sorrows at the moment.

Tonight i went themed on our roundup for the week ~ top row, unusual frozen goods were trendy on TasteSpotting, from margarita popsicles and frozen eggs to Raw Banana Mango Malted Ice Cream with Agave Caramel... in the middle row, from NOTCOT.org had quite a nice selection of Architecture showing up this week... and finally, from NotCouture here is an assortment of bags, trunks, and 'waterproof backpack reviews'!
Top 25 from each site last week on the next page...
Click the images to find out more! Wow, busy week/weekend across the NOTCOT sites... and the Daring Bakers have struck again, this month they have taken on the adorable "cheesecake pops" and over 25 posts have come up so far... some quite creative even! Inspiring and delicious? See the popular posts across the sites on the next page!
Click the images to find out more! Hey everyone, sorry i got quiet this weekend. To be completely honest with you, i'm just having a bit of a hard time with things right now, and its been a rough last few weeks particularly, and overall the last few months have really been catching up with me it seems... trying to officially take a vacation this week... but unlike most sites that go on vacation, shopping/hunting/browsing/sharing/posting inspiring things IS what makes me happy, so posts will probably pick up after i get some brunch today, whereas emails (especially the bitchy ones) will probably have even slower responses than normal, meetings/conference calls probably won't be happening (other than the really fun pre-planned ones)... essentially anything that "feels" like "work" i'm not available for this week! Check back May 1st if you're looking for that stuff, where hopefully i'll get myself relaxed and ready to do the whole "business" thing again. And for those who clearly can't seem to understand this - i just need a break, so feel free to resume the painful/not fun stuff May 1st.
OK - personal rant done. Just wanted to get that out there for the people who don't seem to understand the current situation, but seem to see public posting as making something "real". Moving along... roundup time! The popular postings of the last week across NOTCOT.org, TasteSpotting, and NotCouture...
Oh, and yes the sites went down for a bit this weekend ~ they were physically moving our servers and unfortunately there were a few problems, but all should be back up and ok now. Not stressful at all, right?
What more could we need to kick off a Monday in the making besides waldo hidden in the real world waiting for google maps, designer foosball, books transformed into sculpture, dragon bras, fun dresses and coats, martinis, cupcakes, carbonara, and more? Well here's a selection of things that grabbed me from the last week, and after the jump take a look at the 25 most popular posts from across the NOTCOT Network. Happy Monday! (and as always, click the images to find out more!)
Click the images to find out more! And as always - TasteSpotting and NotCouture roundups after the jump! Here are the most popular 25 posts over at NOTCOT.org this week! I'm still up in norcal, but theoretically heading back down to LA in a few hours... see some of the deliciousness on tastespotting and notcouture below - the bacon bra is particularly horrifying/fascinating.
Click the images to find out more! Roundup Time! I just found out tomorrow was a bank holiday... apparently its Caesar Chavez Day? So i guess its a long weekend! (Not that life on the internet really takes weekends.) Anyhow, its been a fun week across the network, with everything from - skulls hidden in black and white line drawings, a hilarious record of a hipster teaching you "how to speak hip", a viral game in the making where you tilt your laptop to drive a motorcycle, a man with the patience to drill insane holes into egg shells, elephants carrying spy cams, backless bras that atatch like a baby carrier, egg filled nest cupcakes, and so much more... see the full roundups after the jump!
...and for TasteSpotting news, the Daring Bakers have just struck again with their latest March Challenge: Dorie's Perfect Party Cake, and the best are popping up as we speak... fascinating to see how all these different people have interpreted the same recipe.
Click the images to find out more! ~ and being a roundup of roundups, get your quick fix of this weeks fashion and food after the jump as well! (Courtesy of NotCouture and TasteSpotting) Fun to see that a lot of the most popular posts on .org this week seem to be some of the .com posts... and those terribly creeeeeeeeepy Pixeloo renders of Mario and Homer if they were real humans with their cartoon anatomy... freaky stuff! I am scared to see what they take on next...
