In a new, aptly-titled editorial called “Neverland,” photographer Advan Matthew takes us to a world we can only dream of… literally. Model Ollie Turchina is transported to a land of pastel hues, multiple layers of silk, lace, and tulle, and unexpectedly bold eye make-up.

Stuck between fantasy and reality, it is no wonder why she can’t seem to (or, even want to) awaken from her dream-like state. Use these photos as material for your REM or fodder for your Tumblr.

Michael Pitt sure has come a long way since his days as Henry Parker on The WB’s “Dawson’s Creek.” No longer the freshman quarterback and one-time beau of a Miss Jen Lindley (played by Michelle Williams), Pitt has since found a home on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” and now as Prada’s newest poster-boy for their S/S 2012 menswear campaign.

Lace Up Sneaker by Suno

As an avid cyclist and a registered tomboy,* I make sure that my shoes are as flat as possible. Sure, I may put on some heels for a night on the town, but I definitely prefer a good pair of sneakers for daily wear. After hearing about the release of Suno’s sneaker line a few weeks ago, I wanted to track down other kicks that are easy on the eyes and do more than just turn a profit. In this post you’ll find a few brands you’ve heard of and some you haven’t. Prepare to help others, animals, or the planet in the easiest way possible: with the swipe of a credit card.

* You can register your tomboy-dom at the DMV. In return, you get a sticker on your license, like an organ donor.

Helsinkians are known for wearing some pretty interesting garb. Just check out Helsinki street style blog, Hel Looks.

Raimo, one of the blog’s most recent subjects, is no different. He’s sporting a necklace he made of hair. Sure, he claims that he wanted to see what it would be like with a longer ‘do.

But, we must ask: is wearing hair around your neck really the answer? Would you rock a braided hair necklace?

When design and technology merge, you end up with a beauty like ZIIIRO’s Proton Watch. Ditching traditional clock hands, this Hong Kong watch maker has instead opted to use transparent gradient disks of blue and yellow to tell time. As the positions of the “hands” move closer together, the colors combine to form green. (Missed the lesson on primary colors in kindergarten? No worries: ZIIIRO’s got your back.)

If you’re like me, you probably appreciate the idea of creating a delicious meal more than actually doing it yourself. I mean, come on: in your head you imagine what the final product will look, smell, and, most importantly, taste like; your mind probably skips over all the preparation that goes into making said dish.

Luckily, there are tons of brilliant food bloggers who gladly do the legwork for you and leave you with mouth-watering photos of impeccably styled food.

Here are some of the best food blogs the internet has to offer. Cue salivation in 3… 2… 1.
