Music Makes Me Happy: Delta Spirit

I had the opportunity to see Delta Spirit this past Friday at the TLA on South St. in Philadelphia. They have so much energy and just totally rocked! Just an all around great time and great show. Here is just one of the many favorite songs of the night.

Travel Bug: Paris Je T’aime

I constantly catch the travel bug! I’m not always fortunate enough to act on it, but that doesn’t mean that a girl can’t dream….First I some across this beautiful video on A CUP OF JO: Paris Elopement.

Then my friend shares this really helpful travel website Secrets of Paris.
And then another friend tells me about this amazing travel group called Contiki vacations. They are trips built for people ages 18-35. I was gushing over the different travel opportunities all weekend….
Even though it feels like the universe is telling me to hop on a plane to Paris:)I do not see that trip happening in my too, too near future. So to help me fill the void, I’m just going to have to watch Amélie over and over again and let Audrey Tautou speak to my Parisian searching soul.

black & gold

black & gold
It’s that time of year! Lists are made, presents are bought & wrapped. While my mind is racing for ideas for family and friends there’s always room for a little wish list of my own. And it seems I’m having a black and gold accessory moment. Even my wish lists have themes (!)

Spotlight: Emma Stone

Spotlight: Emma Stone
Whether its red carpets, movie premieres, or strolling the streets of NY with her man, Emma Stone is always on point. I’m a fan of how she styles her looks, like adding unexpected accessories like her houndstooth pumps with her long sleeve hot pink dress, as well as keeping things casual and chic with flats, stripes, and a classic winter coat. This girl has style in spades. Brunette, red, or blonde Emma’s definitely the “it” fashion girl in my book and I can’t wait to see what she steps out in next!

Sock it to ’em

Sock it to 'em
The sock bun, the top knot…AKA the best thing that has ever happened to dirty hair since…dry shampoo (more on that later, I’m sure). Whether you roll it or twist it, the best buns are when they are super high, and super large. Much more polished then a pony tail, these buns can instantly pull your look together. Haven’t tried it, haven’t heard of it? A quick search on youtube and there are TONS of how to videos. Watch a few, grab a sock, and try it out!
No sock, in a pinch? Get to know Lauren Conrad’s Fun Bun:

Locally Grown….Dr.Dog

Philly’s own Dr. Dog has released a new EP recently featuring my favorite song on the Album “Be the Void” which was originally the title track for their last album. It seems they thought it needed a little more work. Their work paid off….Check it out!

TGIF…..The Farmers Cabinet

As the weather is starting to seriously cool down here in Philly, finding the perfect place to grab a drink that will warm you up is a must. The Farmers Cabinet is one of my favorite places for so many reasons: candle lit atmosphere, 20’s inspired rag time music from a live band, old fashioned cocktails- The Daisy with Bourbon is my go to, and the most diverse European beer collection in Philadelphia. I prefer going there for a before or after dinner to listen to the music and wind down. It’s a perfect place to bring a date…it has some perfect little nooks;)
