Dreams For Sale

Happy hump day!

After searching for what seems like ever, I’m finally bringing you my latest playlist. It has months worth of emotions in it, so I can’t say it only has one feel, but I can say that I always put soul in them, but this one has heart.

Goosebumps

Hi everyone!

I have a little something for your Monday blues. I’m super stoaked to publish this month’s (uhh…okay fine, and last month’s) playlist!

I don’t think I’ve ever put so much thought and effort into a playlist in my life. I found the first song and immediately fell in love, and I’ve spent the past few weeks hunting for other artists with the same feel.

It wasn’t an easy task, but I’m really proud of this one. It’s a compilation of (mostly) recent discoveries that are so beautiful, dark, and twisted, they give me goosebumps. I may have found some inspiration in Serial…okay, I definitely did.

Hope you love it as much as I do!

Xx,

Fall With Me | September 2014 Playlist

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and that your long weekend turns into a quick, short week!

So, as promised, I’ve put together a new playlist of songs for the month of September. This one is comprised of softer, acoustic songs. These are songs we love to listen to year-round, but especially while watching leaves change golden brown in fall. I also made sure to put a few of A’s favorite songs in this playlist since it’s her birthday month.

So, here it is: Fall With Me | SEPT ’14

Hope you enjoy it! 

Love,

Jams | August 2014

Happy Monday everyone!

Skip the groaning – I’m here to make your Monday…no wait…your August a little better. After days and days of planning, compilation, and editing, I’m ready to release my first playlist to you guys!

I wanted to give you all a little something for these last fleeting moments of summer. There’s some old and some new, but it’s all gold. 

Here it is

Hope you enjoy it!

Friday Finds

Hi guys!

Hope you had a not-too-terrible week. I know here in Chicago I’ve been thrown off by the weather pretty much every day and swamped with midterm prep. And I’m pretty sure A has been swallowed by the Wedding Monster.

Safe to say, with another hectic week under our belts, we need to find a little happiness and fun this Friday. This Friday, A and I will share with you things we’ve found in the past few weeks that we feel are worth a share. Hopefully this can help get you through the last day of the work/school week!

Enjoy!

1. Life After Life: My favorite form of escapism has always been reading. But there are obviously books that provide a better journey than others. This is a really interesting story about a woman who can’t die (not giving anything away!). It’s told beautifully with a mix of dark and light moments.

2. Blackthorn Cider: Because of my celiac, I’ve had to totally cut out beer. And man, do I miss it. Most of the time, I have to opt for ciders, which are okay on one-off, sunshiney days, but other than that – blech. Too sweet! Blackthorn is a dry cider from the UK. Next time you’re out and about (and over 21, boos), you have to try it. I’ve had it at Berry Park in Williamsburg and Drop Off Service (LOVE) in the East Village.

3. Bacon the Maltipoo: Self Explanatory. Also more to come on my recent obsession with getting a dog…

4. THESE BATHS in Tribeca, recommended by my good friend G. She told me I have to go during one of my workplace-wedding-stress-meltdowns. God bless her. This is going to be my pre-wedding gift to myself (because apparently my wedding isn’t gift enough – spoiled?)

1. This song : How Did I Get Here, Odesza 

Actually, I discovered this song a month or so ago, but recently I have not been able to stop listening to it. Also I really hope you guys appreciate me sharing this, because I can be a music snob and sharing my music is just not what I do.

2. Check out my friend, M’s blog – Streeter. She posted a lavandar chai recipe this week and while I haven’t had the chance to actually make it yet (I’m dying to do so), I have no doubt it’s totally delicious. Plus, her photos are ah-mazing. Here’s a little preview:

3. The fact that at Chipotle you can get a burrito wrapped IN A QUESADILLA. A “quesarito”. Okay, stop. This is my life-long dream, how did I not know about this before?

4. This quote :

“ I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art. ” —    Helena Bonham Carter

 

Jointly yours,
