How crazy awesome are these Keep sneakers (and how adorable is this kitty) designed by one of my current favorite artist at the moment, the great Bon Iver? I simply love the color of the shoe and the fishbone sketch, which I think the cat in the picture likes a lot too. But you know what is even more awesome? This shoe was designed for a charity project, and all the sales of the shoe will go to benefit the Best Friends Animal Society, an animal welfare and advocacy organization, which operates America’s largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals.

Lucky me: I get to see Bon Iver play in my hometown (Groningen, the Netherlands) on July 11th. Could not be more excited (:

Happy Valentine’s Day.

And also, happy birthday Ladurée. Apparently, the French pastry house is celebrating its 150th birthday this year. Thanks for bringing us delicious, overly-expensive macaroons.  Causing cavities since 1862.
