this album is so good
omg the dress is really cute!!
Happy Friday Everyone. I hope you all are having a great week. My week has been going great. The weather is back in the 30's Celsius. Which is 86 Fahrenheit. So I decide to bust out this dress this morning to run some errands in. I haven't worn this dress on the blog since August of 2012. The last time I wore this dress off the blog was for my 28th birthday.
Speaking of Birthday. My birthday is on Monday. Which I can't wait to see what my husband has in stored for us to do on that day. Don't forget to enter my huge birthday giveaway.
Open Internationally~ Ends July 31st, 2015a Rafflecopter giveaway
HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!
“I'm wearing a skirt and a shirt from my own Piia Emilia collection, and a Weekday copper skirt and heels. Nowadays I’m leaning more and more towards monochromatic, comfortable outfits. I am desperately looking forward for the warmer weather, bare legs and ditching the winter layers.”

feel like we should go in and order some fries
Meghan Rice, the manager of the casual-dining restaurant, reports its last day is June 30, after which it will forlornly sit empty until it's torn down (along with the neighboring and long vacant cineplex) to make way for a hotel and senior-citizen apartment complex.
All the stuff on the walls will be for sale, she adds.

Hello Everyone. This month is sure flying by. So that means one thing. It's time for another monthly recipe. A few months ago when my husband was doing weight watchers. I came across this recipe on Pinterest and decide to give it a try. This recipe can be made for breakfast or dinner. I made it for dinner. Which my husband wasn't a fan of this recipe. So I don't see myself making it in the feature. Over all I liked it. Plus it was an easy meal to make.
HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY!
“I’m wearing a Weekday coat, a Selected Homme polo knit, a bag by Onar Studios, Acne Studios pants and McQ sandals. Lately my style hass becoming more simple and classic. Instead of craziness I’m intrigued by an idea that not all clothes need to be revolutionary. I’d rather invest in good materials and play with textures.”

“I always pick clothes that inspire me and make me happy. I tend to create a powerful atmosphere and a backstory for every ensemble in my mind. Today I am wearing a shirt and a vest by Samuji, my favourite vintage skirt, and glitter shoes from Monki.”

laura and her crew just continue to crush it. the album is really great. also am i the only person that still reads fluxblog?
A very overrated aspect of music culture, particularly online music culture, is chasing after baby bands and hyping them up. It’s the music culture equivalent of the people who rush to type “FIRST!” in a comments section, and it’s more about people trying to accumulate social capital than anything else. An underrated thing is waiting for one of those baby bands to make the jump from promising or pretty good to becoming actually great. No Joy have done this with their third album More Faithful, and it’s a thrill to hear a group of musicians step up and really find their voice.
The first two No Joy LPs were good but not particularly distinctive shoegaze records. This is fairly common in the indie world – shoegaze is a very seductive aesthetic, and you can make superficially beautiful and cool-sounding music in that genre without a lot of technical skill. It’s also a great genre for shy singers, since you can get away with burying your voice under all the noise.
More Faithful is a shoegaze record too, but it’s anything but lazy and bashful. This is an album made by musicians who understand that the best music in this genre – i.e., the work of My Bloody Valentine – is all about sensuality and subtle tonal contrasts applied to strong, melodic songwriting. The record is full of gorgeous sounds and interesting textures, and even better, there’s so much depth implied by the mix that sometimes it seems as though it’s coming at you in 3-D. (I’m particularly fond of the way the apply a severe slap echo on just the word “stop” in the chorus of “Chalk Snake.”) I’ve had a promo of More Faithful for a few months and it’s been in my regular rotation all of that time, and I’m still finding new nuances to love in it after dozens of listens.
“Moon In My Mouth” is the song on More Faithful that I’ve obsessed over for months. It’s a very well-written piece of music, but feels oddly amorphous. It’s performed in an unusual time signature, and though the melodic elements seem to orbit something, it’s not clear what that something actually is. It’s disorienting, but in a very lovely way. One of the best things about “Moon In My Mouth” is though the overall sensation of it is sort of vague, its component sounds are very specific and clean. The extreme clarity of the guitar parts remind me of how Peter Buck’s guitar was recorded and mixed on R.E.M.’s Murmur. There’s something so stunning and surreal about hearing something so crystal clear at the center of an arrangement that otherwise quite atmospheric. Jasamine White-Gluz’s vocal performance is wonderful too – breathy at some points, but very crisp and emphatic in the chorus. I’m so glad she didn’t hold back in singing the song, because that her passion doesn’t compromise the intimacy of this music. It amplifies it.
Buy it from Amazon.
this house is so obnoxious and i love it
I’ve been feeling a little less than inspired by spreads in my shelter magazines lately and even on Pinterest. Have you? I crave some more interesting spaces with personality and a unique flair- not just “pretty” spaces. Sometimes even those that are not my personal style can inspire creative thinking and to take some design risks.
I saw this home on Atlanta Home website and thought it was just one of those spaces. The historic Greek Revival home, called Honeymoon, was built in 1831 and has been lovingly renovated by design showroom owner James Stanton and his partner. There is nothing like a good ol’ grand Southern mansion….
I die over the original door knocker.
I love the blue of this entry (trim and ceilings all the same) and the two prints on the wall….
You can see how the color changes in the light here and how the bolder color shows off the antiques and period details on the stairs.
This moody den is also cool, again with the ceilings painted the same color as the walls- something I’d only do in a room with high ceilings.
In another living space the mood is lighter, but a dramatic green sofa and modern rug. It’s not exactly my person style, but I do like the mix.
I do however, love the mix of antiques and modern decor in this home.
I just posted this wallpaper last week when discussing grisaille, and here is an example of it in the dining room. I love the painted trim and ceiling- and that gold mirror.
This kitchen feels a little too dark for me personally. I may have done just the cabinets in the grey and something lighter up top.
More fun use of wallpaper in a powder room. Again, not something I’d pick but certainly a funky and cool application.
I do like this space- the Currey & Co. chandelier, the light blue walls and four poster bed. This space feels pretty unique and the mix of dark brown and blue feels interesting.
I LOVE these adorable twin beds.
A pretty vignette, again a mix of dark tones and lighter blues, showcasing a fun lamp by Aerin for Visual Comfort.
The relaxing pool.
The old maid’s quarters that the couple have set their sights on renovating next!
Some picks from Stanton Home Furnishings, some right from this house!
me as fuck. can't wait for the documentary
this is so good!
so ready for the black heart emoji
lol i love leigh janiak's facebook post
Personally I don't care for the idea of remakes. There are great scripts & ideas out there that have yet to be made!— Fairuza Balk (@fairuza) May 14, 2015
You guys are so sweet! It doesn't surprise me much. Sony made a lot of money off the craft & obviously see it as a way to make more— Fairuza Balk (@fairuza) May 14, 2015
THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT:
Thank you for this tribute, Parker. We’re touched. And we love you, you crazed ho. LOVE. YOU.

Princess Bingbing has descended from the Upper Realms to sprinkle her fairy dust all over the French Riviera.
That is quite possibly the greatest sentence we’ve ever written.
Far be it for us to tell people how to think (HAHA! As if!), but if you’re looking at these pictures and wondering how she pees or sits down, YOU ARE LOOKING AT IT WRONG.
The red carpet – especially at Cannes – is all about creating a moment, and if there’s one thing Miss Bingbing knows how to do, it’s that. This is breathtaking. Pure fantasy fashion, which is why Marchesa’s such a fantastic choice for this venue – and for her, for that matter. After all, there are only a handful of women who could make this look work as well as she does.
