Wiissa is the collaborative photo archive between Wilson Philippe and Vanessa Hollander (a combination of their nicknames: wii and ssa). After meeting in Miami at 15 and 14-years-old, the duo became hooked on photography, using each other as their subjects to help them learn and grow. Their use of film and video brings moments to life that are nostalgic, genuine and youthful, which together create the timeless world they seem to live in. See more at their website, including their first prize winning entry to our Crush video contest and the Flickr Favorites photo featured right now on our homepage.

I biked “The Loop” in Laos from Thakhek to Naiki and then to Ban Na Hin, which is the base town to visit the big highlight: the Konglor cave. The cave is a big side trip (26 miles in each direction) so instead of biking out and back on the same road, I decided to take a minibus. I got on the first one that left at 10AM, but it took 1.5 hours because it stopped a lot to make deliveries of food and gasoline along the way.

Risograph posters of the artists' work will be exhibited, eee! -Maggie Lee

I may not normally be much of a monogram kinda girl, but throw on a ton of purple sparkles and I'm sold. Louis Vuitton's FW12 accessories didn't just have the sick sparklers going for them though because my jaw literally dropped when I spotted these beautiful goat fur handbags! Please be mine! X - Jen

Cut off a piece of Dee Dee from the Dum Dum Girls while you can. She's giving it all away in one shot in the band's new video for "Coming Down", off their album Only In Dreams. We're selling ours on Ebay.
I'm a sucker for any project that involves exploring beautiful and creatively decorated interiors. Slanted Mansion, a blog that photographs the homes of creatives from around the globe, is no exception. Interviewing everyone from Swedish tattoo artists to Argentinian musicians, photographer and interviewer Siobhan Frost definitely has an eye for interesting homes. - Hazel
