A blog about the style in everything by two best friends born a day apart.

11:42 Style is the blog child of KM and MR, two ladies notorious for being just a little bit rebellious fashion and music-wise. We’re a little bit like a modern day Thelma and Louise – minus the illegal activities.

Hello! My name is Erika. I’m in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Hi! My name is Erika and this blog is my place where I keep my inspiration, my favorite memories and most of all, my journey of makings things in both life and art. I am a self taught oil painter and I took the plunge to leave my corporate job in order to paint full time. I show my artwork around town and have been featured in the last four seasons of the television show, “Portlandia.” I am a mommy to my daughter Nora, who was born 7/11/12 and baby Everett, who was born 11/11/14. I have a bearded husband named Tim and have two pretty mischievous pugs. I believe in magic dust and that creativity lives and grows all around us. My secret wish is to lead the best life possible and to live on fast forward.

I am a self taught oil painter and I took the plunge to leave my corporate job in order to paint full time. I show my artwork around town and have been featured in the last three seasons of the television show, “Portlandia.” I am a mommy to my daughter Nora, who was born 7/11/12, which basically means we’re set with free slurpies for life. I have a bearded husband named Tim and have two pretty mischievous pugs. I believe in magic dust and that creativity lives and grows all around us. My secret wish is to lead the best life possible and to live on fast forward.

Perspectives of a Portlander
A collection of editorial projects and blog exerpts, created and curated by Candace Molatore

By producing my own content, creating and publishing on my own website, and connecting personally with brands, I have
experienced all sides of the spectrum and have chosen to go in a different direction, outside of the norm of a typical Blogger.
I seek to create a bond between genuine brands and the consumer–to connect the best brands with the best people.
I work closely with brands and help market them to be exactly what their target consumer is looking for. By keeping
them up to date on everything media-wise, I help to connect them with the most relevant promoters for their brand.

Perspectives of a Portlander
Personal Style blog written by a 20 year old college girl with a passion for photography and a bit of a shoe obsession

Upon starting my blog I was a lonely college student in the lovely city of Portland looking to learn more about life and finding my own personal style. Since I have been blogging I not only have a better knowledge of myself, but even more of a love for the city of Portland and what it has to offer for people like me. My mission in blogging is to inspire and motive anyone who has a passion for creating and help those who really just need a cute outfit to wear.

Swim Into The Sound
Taylor Grimes is a Portland-based copywriter, humorist, and music enthusiast. I like writing, and I like writing about music.

My name is Taylor. I am a 23-year-old student of advertising, comedy, and pop culture. I spend most of my free time listening to music and podcasts.

Sometimes I play video games, and sometimes I run. Sometimes I watch movies, and sometimes I read. Sometimes I drink, and sometimes I don’t. I’m (obviously) a very well-rounded person, but of all the things that I enjoy, my biggest passion is music. Music is escapism just like any other medium, but I think that music represents the absolute purest form of escapism that we can achieve. Music can be tribal or transcendent. Music can bond us on a psychological level in a way that no movie or TV show can. It’s life-changing.

This blog is a place for me to talk about everything, from music to general life nonsense. This is a place for me to get my head words out on the digital page. It won’t always be pretty… or coherent… or correctly-punctuated, but sometimes you need a place to talk about it all. I love music. I love life.
