90s tribal prints are back for AW18 at Dior Homme

Dior Homme AW18 mens paris pfw

Kris Van Assche has been designing Dior Homme for a decade now, creating collections that blend super-sharp tailoring with styling cues borrowed from youth and subculture. Today, in the Grand Palais’ Salon d’Honneur, his AW18 models hit a runway decorated with three towering glass vitrines that were loaded with flashing lights, and progressively filled with smoke throughout the show. Here’s what went down.

Boring people now not allowed to move next door to clubs and complain

dj-743802_960_720

The music industry is hailing a “seismic victory” after the government has promised to protect longstanding music venues from property developers (and in turn, boring residents who like to get our best venues shut down).

The Agent Of Change will mean that clubs and other venues will be protected from noise complaints as property developers will have to “identify and solve any sound problems” at new properties – through the use of proper soundproofing and other methods.

“Music…

Following on from its AW17 campaign – which saw a series of cartoon-like characters channel the line between the material and the metaphysical – Camper’s newest visuals continue in a similarly out-of-this-world vein.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of its TWINS line, the footwear brand has announced its latest release as part of an ongoing…

Drake’s new songs talk about his failed relationships, of course

Screen Shot 2018-01-20 at 13.06.02

Drake dropped two surprise tracks on Friday night.

“God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity” were released under the name Scary Hours after the rapper reportedly previewed them at a private Memphis party on Thursday.

Typically, both of them go toward cementing his reputation as one of the most emotional (and meme-able) rappers in the business.

In “God’s Plan”, the…

John Elliot Released a Suicoke Collaboration & You Can Buy It Now

Without a shadow of a doubt, Suicoke’s long list of collaborations would have most footwear manufacturers weak at the knees.

And in case this Japanese brand was still somewhat of a mystery to you, we rounded up everything you need to know about it right here.

Having tackled the recognizable, cornerstone MOTO silhouette, John Elliot outfits the chunky slide in two subdued options of white & black, and black, charcoal & olive, as well as a special pixelated variation set in amongst a predominantly grey frame.

life is what happens when…

Let’s get personal.

I feel like this has been happening to me quite a bit lately, but this post started off much differently.

My original post (that’s still sitting in my WordPress draft folder screaming ‘publish me instead’) was a much more straightforward and informational essay on the state of my financial health as a small business owner. Now, before you yawn and get ready to swipe through this article, my intentions were this: One of the most frequently asked questions I get, is around how I decided to finally take the plunge to quit Google and to work on This Time Tomorrow full time — an answer that often gets condensed in conversation but in reality, there was a lot of number crunching, soul searching and, well, ugly spreadsheets.

Spreadsheets for tracking my overall growth. Spreadsheets for tracking projections. Spreadsheets for tracking my expenses to incomings. Spreadsheets for the spreadsheets! What was it all for? Financial peace of mind — something that wasn’t taught to me in any university class, but something that I spent a lot of time Googling and re-Googling, something that I listened to tons of Ted Talks about. In that original post, we were going to talk about financial peace of mind. How to get it. Why we (meaning millennials) seem to be lacking it. And why we don’t ever really talk about it with our family and loved ones.

And to be clear, we’re still going to talk about those things. But that’s where this post takes a detour.

I’m currently writing this from a hospital back in my hometown of Reno, Nevada. It’s 6:05 am PST on Tuesday and my mom is currently recovering from a hip replacement surgery from the day before. The past 48 hours have been a blur of last minute flights, pre-op appointments and the dreaded waiting room dance, where you can’t decide if you get another cup of coffee or survey the food options in the caffeteria one more time, as if they’ve miraculously changed. It’s been nerve wracking — feeling both helpless and responsible at the same time — for someone like a parent, who is normally the one taking care of you.

To be clear, my mom is recovering quite well and is already walking around a bunch, with her doctor estimating she’ll be up and ready in no time. Today’s post isn’t looking for sympathy about this experience (although I’d love to write something longer about it specifically as perhaps we can all relate to times when roles are reversed with parents?), but it did get me thinking a lot about statistics that I’ve read recently. Consider the following:

  • The majority of Americans are worried that they would be financially crippled by a major life event, but aren’t actively preparing for it. Over half would not be able to come up with $400 for an emergency.
  • 50% of Americans have more credit card debt than they do savings.
  • Only 15% of the population is on track to fund even one year of retirement.
  • Money is, quite unsurprisingly, the number one source of stress, yet 70% of Americans find it rude to discuss money in public settings.

The first and last points get me here, especially as I find myself in the position that I’m in, dealing with a major life event. Thankfully, there aren’t any hiccups to report — the surgery, while still major, is practically routine at this point, her doctor has been amazing and it’s thankfully all covered by insurance. I financially planned to take this trip, putting work and life on hold to a certain extent to help out as much as possible here back at home — a reality that may not always be the case for someone who perhaps doesn’t work independently/for themselves.

But what if any of the above weren’t true? What if I hadn’t put enough extra aside for this particular major life event? What if something complicates (God forbid) the recovery process? What if her insurance ultimately decides to file this differently than expected thereby covering less? They’re all things we would inevitably take in stride, but it does make you stop and think: how well prepared am I?

Now, I’m not someone who likes to sit at home worrying about every little thing that could go wrong. After all, life is a series of things that happens when you’re not looking, right? But it wasn’t until I sat down to write this post in collaboration with Intuit (the makers of Mint and Turbo Tax) for their financial health app Turbo, that I realized, I don’t know if I fully understand my financial state of the union, so to speak. Sure, I run my own business, and I like to think I’m doing all the “appropriate adult” things I should be doing for retirement, savings etc. but am I really?

For the past few weeks leading up to heading back home, I’ve been taking a good, hard look at my financial situation, my spending to saving ratio, my overhead expenses (both business and personal) — the whole works — via the Turbo app, which brings together your IRS-verified income, credit score and debt-to-income ratio to produce a holistic picture of your financial standing. In the past, I’ve viewed many of these things separately in silos, so the ability to assess the lay of the land all in one place has been eye opening.

This year, one of my biggest personal goals is to better understand my true financial health, starting first with debunking this idea we shouldn’t talk about money. I’ve found sometimes the things that give us the most anxiety or fear, tend to be the things we shy away from sharing with anyone — making for feelings of isolation or embarrassment that we’re doing something wrong. Perhaps its the effect of this hospital or the onset of my 30s talking here, but I find that to be a terrible waste of time. And perhaps you do, too?

So let’s start that now. What are some of your financial goals — big or small — this year? And how are you working toward them?

This post was in collaboration with Turbo. As always, all opinions and styling are my own. Thank you for supporting all This Time Tomorrow collaborations!

Happy Friday, everyone!

How has your week been? A nasty cold took me down at the beginning of the week, and I’ve slowly been recovering through lots of tea, orange juice, and time in bed. I finally got out to a yoga class last night and a boxing class this morning, both of which were a bit tough to get through (sniffling is not fun while you’re alternating burpees and jab-cross-hooks!) but I felt great once I was done. After another yoga class this morning — trying to work in a bunch of fitness things before school starts up again for me! — I’m feeling ready to take on the weekend.

With Krystal traveling and my own lazy, bedridden state, I seem to have spent a lot more time than normal on the internet this week. So, in the spirit of self-care, I’ve decided to bring you some of the best things I’ve read/stumbled upon/tried at home/bought lately.

Also, friendly reminder, if you haven’t already, make sure to enter Krystal’s $1000 giveaway!

Relax with a good cup of coffee and browse our favorite links from the past week…

That’s all for me! Is there anything you’ve been loving from the interwebs lately? Let us know in the comments!

Have a great weekend, everyone.
