The Future of Fashun is Hand Painted Cellular Device Covers

Since the moment I received my first iPhone, I was enamored by the high gloss appeal of the machine—the simplicity of the design, the intrinsic beauty of modernity that it was—and immediately was dissatisfied with it, when my father slapped a thick black case on it. All of it’s beauty was taken away by thisContinue reading “The Future of Fashun is Hand Painted Cellular Device Covers”

Love At First Sight

That is the feeling I felt when I saw these chairs, love. I love the clean lines, the minimalism, the simplicity of the structure, and the effortless way they go with everything. HOWEVER, and that’s a big however, they are sort of in bad shape. The frame of the chairs are made from metal, andContinue reading “Love At First Sight”

A Not Entirely Classic Hummus

It might seem like a tad overdone and slightly unnecessary to start putting another food blog out into the universe, but I’d like to think of this as my own personal journey with food, and if you’d like to join along, then so be it.

The Giving Issue

Every introduction to the month usually starts with either a story or anecdote introducing the theme, to which, I proclaim proudly, the need and desire, to keep said theme—what proceeds is usually a combination of both striving and lazily meandering through the subject matter. Part of the time, the reason for this dissonance is becauseContinue reading “The Giving Issue”

Here Are the Top 6 Stories on Tova & Wild This October

A poem for the month of October, because I couldn’t come up with a better way to describe The Friendship Issue other than through the means of poetry. Hot and cold, rainy and crisp, the cool leaves prance on the ground kissing each stone as they pass along. October is for you and me, forContinue reading “Here Are the Top 6 Stories on Tova & Wild This October”

Simple Advice From Anne Perryman

A few days ago, I was attempting to get ready for my day, when I inevitably fell back into a solid white J.Crew t-shirt, Levis, and black Tod’s mules. I have dawned this outfit on a number of occasions, primarily out of a lack of options in my closet, but also out of sheer comfort.Continue reading “Simple Advice From Anne Perryman”
