Welcome to the Purp Alert. A monthly edit of fascinating finds I discover on the internet. I'll be highlighting anything from emerging artists, entrepreneurial advice, to things that make me laugh. If it inspired me, or helped me get through the month, you'll see it here. Let's get started!
Samantha Urbani - U Know I Know
Samantha Urbani takes us into a dream-like community living space, to visit with her household of roommates and watch her travel through her surrealistic morning routine.

Infinite Waters (Diving Deep)
This month has been very hard for me. I've been stressed out trying to juggle my job, my freelance work, and personal life. I've been going a bit crazy, but watching psychologist, Ralph Smart on YouTube has helped me out tremendously. His motivational videos cover topics like how to create with your thoughts, and how to stop absorbing other people's energy. He's even got this chicken & waffle lover considering a vegan diet. Pretty Powerful! Check out his videos here.
Being the color freak that I am, I was instantly drawn to Swiss artist, Lori Hersberger. He studied video art and sculpture, and his undogmatic choice of various media and materials became the distinctive mark of his work. I especially love his light works. Check out his portfolio here.
Nikao offers luxury 18k gold plated pieces that are inspired by the designers culture, experiences and travel. Each piece makes a huge statement by provoking a reaction of surprise and adornment. Check out her beautifully crafted jewelry here.
