“Sinful Nature” Bear in Heaven

Seeing Bear in Heaven and Hooray for Earth tonight at Shubas in Chicago. My rooms and I felt without music and went on a mini ticket buying spree. Well worth it. CAN’T WAIT. #beatzjamzmusac


Fuck I’m almost 25

If you’re slightly freaked out that you are 25 or are turning 25, read this article ^.

“If you are 25 or turning 25: TV can be really important to you.” Love this little slice. I was more excited about the Season Two premier of GIRLS than quitting my toxic ex job. This probably also has to do with the fact that GIRLS makes me feel better about my sometimes irresponsible, bat shit crazy, life decisions. The best part of the show and Lena’s raw/cool creative genius is that it reminds me how much I like where I am. This weird in-between. Confusing and heartbreaking and exciting and so so so happy. Even when I feel freaked out about getting old, these days are my best.

saturday celebrations and inspirations

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
Coco Chanel
happy weekend everyone:) and HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY PARTY EVENING to my adorable friend Sarah Gleason. i usually never plan my outfits ahead- but i usually always mix a cocktail around 7pm and play good mood music for getting ready. now that i think of it, i might go layered with jewelry or wear different makeup tonight… enjoy the free time, i’ll be enjoying mine. x.

bye bye baby-face

i’m 23. i think that means i’m in my mid-twenties. sometimes i feel mid-thirties. sometimes eleven.

“What they don’t understand about birthdays and what they never tell you is that when you’re eleven, you’re also ten, and nine, and eight, and seven, and six, and five, and four, and three, and two and one. And when you wake up on your eleventh birthday you expect to feel eleven, but you don’t. You open your eyes and everything’s just like yesterday, only it’s today. And you are–underneath the year that make you eleven.
Like some days you might say something stupid, and that’s the part of you that’s still ten. Or maybe some days you might need to sit on your mama’s lap because you’re scared, and that’s the part of you that’s five. And maybe one day when you’re all grown up maybe you will need to cry like if you’re three, and that’s okay. That’s what I tell Mama when she’s sad and needs to cry. Maybe she’s feeling three.
Because the way you grow old is kind of like an onion or like the rings inside a tree trunk or like my little wooden dolls that fit one inside the other, each year inside the next one. That’s how being eleven years old is.”

new zealand’s darkest day

On February 21st a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit the south island of New Zealand. The quake hit around lunchtime in Christchurch, New Zealand’s second largest city, when offices and restaurants were very much occupied. Thus far, 65 people have been pronounced dead with a total of about 120 people rescued. Crews of firefighters, police and other officials continue to work nonstop to help locate others trapped beneath the fallen rubble. Prime minister, John Key, rushed to Christchurch just hours after disaster struck. “It is just a scene of utter devastation,” he said. “We may well be witnessing New Zealand’s darkest day.” I awoke to the news of this tragedy and was heartbroken. My heart and thoughts are with New Zealand.
