spring is almost here, and that means it’s time to ditch the heavy coats and boots in favor of pretty patterned sweaters and classic loafer flats. standout in the crowd with fun accessories like our owl purse.
get your week started off right with fresh tunes.
we love to see talents from different genres of music come together to make beautiful musical collaborations. this week, superstars frank ocean, mick jones and paul simonon from the clash, and diplo, along with the west los angeles children’s choir, collaborated on the track “hero” for converse music, resulting in a retro-futurist sound that has us swaying to the chill beat.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with this week’s #FoodFriday, brought to you by our food artist Amanda Nicole Smith. These health conscious shortbread cookies are raw, vegan, gluten free, quick to make– and delicious.

1 cup macadamia nuts*
1 cup almond meal*

*Brazil Nuts are also great in this recipe
*You can also make your own almond meal by processing skinned almonds for about 3 minutes.
Optional super foods:
1/2 tsp maca root powder
1/2 tsp mesquite
I always have these ingredients on hand because they are amazing for many recipes especially these cookies.
1. Process macadamia nuts
2 Add in the rest of the ingredients
3. Shape the cookies by either pressing into balls with you hands, using a cookie press, or using cookie cutters.
4. Freeze for 20 minutes and refrigerate for the rest of their short life The cookie dough tastes really good too and its safe to eat!
Just a thought…
For all you risk takers I was thinking the other day about my sprouted millet cookies and how they are dehydrated. I love how easy this 5 minute shortbread recipe is but if I had more time I would add a bit of water, maybe an 1/8 cup to start, and then I would dehydrate them until they came out dry like a real shortbread cookie. If you do try this let me know how it works!
when we decided to launch the papillion, aka the men’s collection under the hudiefly brand, our inspiration came from the desire to curate and design for the ideal hudiefly man, a man that has depth, charisma, and soul. so instead of casting for regular models, we wanted to recruit a “real” man who resembles the ideals of the hudiefly man, a man worthy of our papillion wear.
meet william barrows, our very first papillion. the brainy 23 year old UVA graduate double majored in economics and religious studies, and is currently doing geographic analytics at a mapping software firm. like every good papillion, william surfs, skates, works on his old motorcycle, builds random things out of wood, or just generally enjoying making things with his hands. happily based in washington d.c., william travels every chance he gets.
william brings our clothes to life, showing off their unique, off-the-beaten path, masculine charm. look out for more papillion pieces being added to our collection in coming months!
