I’m soooo excited about this post! Remember that trip to Nashville I took a couple of weeks ago?! Well, it was nothing short of incredible! Not only did I spend time with family and see friends…but on that Friday, I had the pleasure of co-hosting the launch of Kjaer Weis‘ line at Nashville’s green beauty shop Lemon Laine. Laura Lemon, the lovely owner of Lemon Laine and I dreamed up this event for the past few months and it was incredible seeing it all come together! Thanks to Kjaer Weis and their gorgeous organic, clean makeup line, I was able to do two beautiful makeup looks on a model (the beautiful Jessica) – transitioning a day makeup look to a night look. The ever-so-loved (and gorgeous, might I add) Cafe Roze catered some delicious little bites and we had some tasty wine by Tavola Wine. The invited guests weren’t left empty handed, they each received curated Kjaer Weis goodie bags and were offered a divine Elements Truffles chocolate bar. (You’ve GOT to try these chocolates if you haven’t! They’re Ayurveda inspired, sweetened with honey, incredibly beautiful and so decadent!) Seriously, this event was beyond what I could have even imagined. Thank you to everyone for coming out! Can’t wait to host more like these in the near future!
It’s Video of The Week time, everyone!
So, lately I’ve had this deliciously wonderful Cass McCombs tune stuck in my head. I wondered if there was a music video for it and low and behold…yes, there was! It’s quite simple, following around Cass at what seems to be a fair or outdoor event of some sort. Then, it gets real good at the end, showing some pretty bright lights and people dancing. If you know me, you know I love me some dancing! Anyways, make sure to watch it for yourself and the whole thing! You don’t wanna miss any of that yummy steel guitar sound towards the end. It’s beautiful.
Hope you all enjoy your Wednesday! Xo
Want more of Mr. McCombs?
This video is the epitome of the end of summer. I just love it so much. It is happy, it is sad, it’s fun, and it’s relaxing…not to mention the video is beautiful, as is the song!
So, enjoy everyone! :)
Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a great Saturday! I haven’t posted on a weekend in a little while and I felt it necessary today because not too long ago, my good friend Jessie found this BEAUTIFUL video for the band Daughter‘s track, “Medicine“.
We watched it in awe, completely mesmerized by the beautiful way the video – which is actually a non-profit video and footage from “Hedgehog in the Fog” (Yuriy Norshteyn, 1975) – captured the song. Even though this video footage is from more than 35 years ago, it is incredibly fitting to the lyrics and instrumentation, with sweet and somber notes to it.
I won’t say too much more, this Daughter track says a lot, and the animation in this video says even more. Enjoy! Xo
Watch the full, original version of “Hedgehog in the Fog” here.
I have been on a Sombear (Brad Hale of Now, Now) kick lately. His catchy electronic, synthy, magnetic, heavy beats are so stinkin’ addicting, and this song/video has been on repeat for almost two weeks now. It’s M83-esque synth and alluring beats charm the heck out of you, while Brad’s vocals entrance and wrap you up in a melodic maze of catchy sounds.
I’ll spare you from all of the extra details and feelings I get could go into, and you can just enjoy the video for yourself.
Also, another song I’ve been obsessed with by him:
