We're almost through another week - and this week has been extra fall-like, which is excellent if you're like me and not a fan of super steamy days. It also makes looking at a seasonal brew a little odd, but... Continue reading

I'm not really a lipstick person, but lately I've really been into lip crayons - like Clinique's Chubby Sticks or Revlon's Balm Stain crayons. I'm not sure about you, but I know my big issue with applying lipstick is going... Continue reading

This song by Sylvan Esso has grown on me quickly - it reminds me of music by Regina Spektor and Imogen Heap with a hint of Bjork thrown in for good measure. The mix of electronic with the lilt of... Continue reading

It's time to start a new series! Now that we're two weeks away from the Bunbury Festival, I thought I would start a weekly series looking at the brews I love the most: beer, coffee, and tea! Since it's summer,... Continue reading

There is something exceptionally catchy about the Bleachers (with Jack Antonoff, of Fun.) song "I Wanna Get Better." I've been hearing it more and more as the album release was just a few days ago, and while I haven't listented... Continue reading

My weekend left me sore, exhausted, excited, triumphant, and covered in paint. It was busy and full of laughter. It was fun. But it was exhausting. And did I mention the paint? Seriously though, we've had some pretty epic weekends... Continue reading

Okay, so can someone tell me why dressing like an adult in the summer time is so hard? At least, is is for me. Or can be. Or used to be. I kind of got to a point where I... Continue reading

Well, we've got another Bunbury Festival done and in the books. To wrap up these many weeks of soundcheck posts, I wanted to take a minute to look at the festival as a whole - all three days of it.... Continue reading

So, Saturday and Sunday at Bunbury were just as awesome as Friday. This year Bunbury went all out and brought in some bigger names, and while i'm sure it hurts any cred I may have, I'll be the first to... Continue reading

Well, folks, it's here and it is awesome so far! What am I talking about? Bunbury, of course! Our first day was jam-packed with so many awesome bands, I don't even know where to begin, so I think I'll go... Continue reading

Well, folks, it's finally here! In about fifteen hours the gates open for Bunbury! An hour after that, the music gets started with Royal Teeth, Snowmine, and The Upset Victory taking the stage all in the first hour of the... Continue reading

Summer is by far my favorite time to put together new playlists. There are loads of new songs out every year, and there are plenty of classic ones that I love to listen to regardless of season. More recently, I've... Continue reading

EDIT: On July 9th, 2014 it was brought to my attention that since this post was written and published the prior day, July 8th, that the organizers of Bunbury updated what you can and cannot bring into the park during... Continue reading

There is nothing like a long weekend to get any month started. Really. This weekend was no exception, either. I mean, who doesn't like getting to sleep in three days in a row? Add in some gorgeous weather, blue skies,... Continue reading

Well. We're 8 days away from Bunbury. Are you excited? I know I am. And a little nervous - this heat has been CRAZY so far this summer. It's going to be a "bring a water bottle" sort of event,... Continue reading

So, I know I just did one of these for my favorite makeup products, but there is SO much more this summer that I'm loving. While we are gearing up for our Independence Day celebrations (though I'm not feeling terribly... Continue reading

I have been OBSESSED with this Vance Joy song since I first heard it. It's upbeat and summery, and so full of emotion. I had to share wtih you as we go into the first major holiday of the summer... Continue reading

This weekend, my favorite ballpark was transformed, as Beyoncé and Jay-Z's On the Run tour stopped in. I've been waiting for this concert for MONTHS. Ever since it was announced at the tail end of April and I sat down... Continue reading

This summer, I have been trying to have fun with all of the beauty products. Lipstick, lip stain, bright nails, and of course, the new pixie cut. It's all really fun, and I'm finding that there are several products I've... Continue reading

This week's Bunbury Festival soundcheck is another example of the mixed varieties of bands coming to the festival, and the festival's appeal to all sorts of indie and rock band fans. This week I'm looking at more of a glam... Continue reading

Okay, so it's hot and humid out. Maybe not today (we're expecting some scattered rain), but it's going to be - for me. If you're in an area with dry heat? I envy you. But when it's hot and summery... Continue reading

Image from Pitchfork This review may be a bit on the later side, but I feel it's important to share - because I am OBSESSED with Chvrches and their album "The Bones of What you Believe." I've loved this band... Continue reading
