The Tao of Ripped Jeans

Comfortably breezy. Casually rebellious. Artfully tattered. Shredded denim has become a sort of unofficial uniform of this generation. I have two pairs of ripped jeans. They are the most expensive denim purchases I’ve made to date, both falling around the $50 range.

I’m not even a regular coffee consumer, but this piqued my interest. I love anything that feels vaguely experimental in the kitchen. According to Google, the popular drink originated in South Korea. … Continue reading Whipped Coffee
