I'm Back + ICFF 2012

Hey, remember how I said I'd "see you Wednesday" and now it's the Tuesday after? Man, I'm sorry about that. Coming back from ICFF left me playing the catch-up game hard core and even included an inbox/whale carcass exploding incident. It was messy. BUT! I'm back! And ICFF was awesome:

I met and hung out with so many cool people!

I saw lots of cute dogs!


I had dinner with awesome people!

I saw tons of incredible designs!

I got a fake tattoo!

I stayed with one of my favorite people ever!

I even got to meet Jonathan Adler (OMG)! OMG.

Like I said, it was awesome. If you get a chance, go! You can also see loads more photos from this trip (and all my other adventures) on Instagram at CapreeK.

Meanwhile, I'll be back to regular posting this week!

MAIYA :: Big Announcement!

And by "big" I mean totally, insanely, awesomely huge. I hinted that I had some announcements in the pipeline for you and here they are:

1. Wrigley and I were featured on Dog Milk's "The Scoop" today! It's full of cute photos and secrets about Wrigley (like what his "real" name is/was). Go check it out! Also??

Are you ready?

2. I am super stoked to announce that, starting right this very minute, I am now the Managing Editor of Dog Milk! Surprise! YAY!! I'll be posting once a day about all things mod and dog, as well as tickling the Internet's fancy on Twitter and Facebook. Come say hi!

I'm also kicking off a new DIY column for Dog Milk and would love some suggestions for a sweet name! Some that I've heard so far include "DogIY", "Doggy-Do", and "Bow Wow! How?" -- if you've got a clever idea, let me know in the comments or over on the Dog Milk Facebook page!
