April Showers Bring…. Curls. Lots and lots of curls…

April in Michigan is all rain, all the time. So for me, a girl with super curly hair, it’s a lost cause to even attempt to straighten my hair. But, there’s still hope! Although it took some time, I’ve finally … Continue reading

Odesza

Currently obsessing over the album Summer’s Gone by Odesza. The duo’s sound is super unique, but I guess if I were to slap a genre label on them, it’d be electronic. That being said, you can tell the album has a lot of different musical influences, from indie to hip-hop, and I can’t get enough!

 

This is definitely a great album to listen to when you just want to kick back and relax. Their sounds transported me to a cooler, calmer place, and I hope it does the same for you! Give ’em a listen and tell me what you think!

“Gypset [is used] to describe a new lifestyle that fuses the carefree ethos of a gypsy nomad with the sophistication of the jet set. Gypsy + Jet Set= Gypset.”

Just got my hands on the most amazing book! Gypset Travel (a follow-up to Julia Chaplin‘s fabulous first book, Gypset Style) explores the lesser-known enclaves for gypsies around the world. Featuring places like Deia, Spain to Montauk, USA, the pages are filled with amazing photography and first-person stories about the new bohemian world of artists, designers, and bon vivants. This was definitely a great purchase and a perfect new addition to my coffee table collection!

Confessions of an Eternal Optimist

I always look at the glass like it’s half full even when it’s more than halfway empty. I always have. I’ve been called out on this characteristic before- Everything from: “How can you say that? We’re obviously not going to … Continue reading
