Gillette Double Edge Razors

I was turned on to antique razors last winter, and haven’t looked back since. However, I’m currently the aspiring owner of a definite beard, (seen here attached to Sean Connery’s face), so my razor hasn’t received much attention lately.

Also, fans of Mad Men may remember a cameo appearance by a classic Gillette when Don comes to the shattering realization that his affair with Bobby Barrett will be uncovered. (Season 2, Episode 6).

Expat’ed: Americans in Paris

As I will be studying in Paris next winter quarter, I’ve recently developed an obsession with the ideals of the expatriate movement – so, here are some photos of Americans in the City of Lights. In the coming weeks I will continue to satiate my obsession with tidbits regarding the somewhat strained yet decidely dynamic relationship between America and France.
