Watching: NASHVILLE! Okay, you guys- I don't want to make any grand generalizations or over-hype this at all, but Nashville is the best thing ever in the world. Like, better than anything ever created before. NO EXAGGERATION. I'm full on obsessed. Country music, Connie Britton, glitter, drama and lots of hot dudes. Oh the hot dudes. So many. Can we talk about Gunnar? SWOON. I mean, hi, hello, thank you Universe for putting everything awesome into one show. (However, would be great to get a Coach Taylor cameo. FNL for life, son.) If you haven't watched- you definitely need to. I'm adding it to the list of prerequisites to be my friend.

Listening to: Other than lots of country music because of my undying love for Nashville, I've been listening to a LOT of Tegan and Sara lately. Hearthrob is my jam. It's been on repeat pretty much ever since it came out. It's the perfect mix of happy/dance music and depressing lyrics. Also- Icona Pop. Never before has such perfect dance/party music been created. It automatically puts me in a good mood. Apparently I've got a thing for dance music right now. Hm.

Thinking about: How guilty I feel because of my lack of blogging lately. I'm the worst, I know. Sometimes though, after a full day spent in front of a computer screen, the last thing I want to do is come home and sit in front of my laptop. Sucks. But I'm planning on getting some posts queued up this weekend. Pinky promise.

Loving: Weekends full of activities. I think being stressed at work tends to make me favor spending the weekend lounging around the apartment and getting lots of sleep. But sometimes the best way to take your mind off of a stressful week (or month) is having fun with friends and drinking entirely too many margaritas. Last weekend, my roommate and I drove down to San Diego to see a band she works with, Native, play at the Soda Bar. Even though we didn't make it home until 4AM, (SO TIRED) it was probably one of my favorite nights since moving to LA. (Also, we stopped for burritos at 2AM. Every good night ends with burritos.)

Reading: I keep on coming back to Rob Sheffield's Talking to Girls About Duran Duran. I've tried to read it a few times and never quite seem to finish it. His book, Love Is A Mixtape, is my favorite book ever. So I feel like I need to really sink my teeth into his second book and finish it. Books about music are my favorite. Anyone have any recommendations? I want to finish this book soon and then jump into something else.

Making Me Happy: That I have SO many friends moving out to the West Coast in the next couple of weeks/months! Seriously, it's kind of becoming a problem. Everyone's doing it! A lot of my absolute favorite people are relocating out to LA and I couldn't be happier about it. The West Coast is the best coast, we all know it's true :)

Thanks to Danielle for inspiring this post!


  1. if you want a book about music/music industry - I recommend pete wentz (of fall out boy...I know you know that)'s Gray. It's AMAZING, it reads just like his lyrics, and is a great look into his life (it's fiction...but not really...). I actually wrote about it on my blog this week so check it outttt.

  2. Last night I caught up on Nashville from last week and I felt like I was dancing on a cloud. I am equally obsessed. Totally hooked from start to finish. That show, the music, and Gunnar make my heart swoon.

    xo, Courtney

  3. If you're looking for a quick read about music, I'd suggest Record Collecting for Girls, by Courtney Smith. It's a collection of essays, loosely focused on being a girl who's really into music. It's a really fun read.

  4. Nashville is my jam. if a tv show can be a jam. but there's lots of music so it must be.

  5. I really want to watch Nashville. I've heard such good things about it plus Connie Britton is my fave lady.

  6. My sister is addicted to Nashville and from what I've seen, it looks pretty interesting. I love Connie and Hayden so I'm sure I'll get into it sooner or later.
    Also, I'm dying to move to California, you have no idea. Reading your blog and seeing your pictures just makes it all the more worse I'm not there. sigh.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It's lovely hearing from you :)
