How To Write Your Own History

By

Flavorpill has teamed up with Cole Haan to help a new generation write their own history. On September 6th and 7th in NYC, you can attend our Inspiration Workshop at Wallplay on the Lower East Side for programming designed to inform and empower both your creative side *and* your business side. General Assembly teachers lead (free) classes on site, and inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs share their stories in evening panel discussions. You can also peruse The Sketchbook Project‘s mobile pop-up library, featuring the doodles, lists, and dreams of international authors, artists, scientists, and more. We spoke to some of the panelists and instructors involved in the Inspiration Workshop for advice on writing our own history and forging our own path — so even if you can’t attend the Workshop, you can come away inspired.

Offbeat Adventures in Fort Collins, Colorado

By

It’s hard to go wrong in Fort Collins, Colorado, repeatedly ranked as one of the best towns in America and known as heaven-on-earth for lovers of beer, bikes, bands, and boats — but it can be tough to narrow down the choices on your offbeat adventure to-do list. Named for an old military camp, the charming city marches to the beat of its own quirky drum and is in the midst of celebrating its 150th birthday year. With New Belgium’s Tour de Fat getting ready to make its way home to where the infamous brewery was born in 1991 — ultimately launching the epic, craft-beer boom that now defines the city — you can count on the fiercely proud and eccentric locals going out of their way to ensure that this is the fattest stop on the tour. Hip and adventurous without trying, once you get a taste of FoCo flavor you won’t want to leave.

Trailer: Bravo’s ‘The Singles Project’ Is Reality TV in Real Time

By

Bravo’s reality slate has long been a leader in the genre. But they’re upping the ante with The Singles Project, premiering Tuesday, August 12, at 10/9 central. The show is shot on a seriously accelerated (especially for reality programming) schedule, meaning that the six men and women looking for love are going from date night to prime time within a day or two. What this means for viewers: your reactions to their dates and recommendations for the singles on social media will have a legitimate impact. As the trailer says, it’s up to you to “help them find the one” in New York City. An interesting experiment to say the least!

She described the experience of working on this project as a perfect fit: “I felt like my aesthetic is aligned with what Perrier was going for which is fun, light, summery, colorful and beachy. It felt very natural.”
