I’ve been spending so much time wrapped up in my own bubble these days; reading, writing, and falling in love with lots of things music and otherwise. Here are a few of my current favorite things:
1. Owl City. Remember this song?
It’s a couple years old now, but almost just as popular as when it first came out. Owl City is basically the work of one guy, Adam Young, and I’ve been a huge fan of his work since his album Ocean Eyes. Anyway, he just released a new record called All Things Bright & Beautiful, and I just love it. Do check it out if you love happy, day-dreamy, synthpop music. It’s pretty different from what I normally listen to, but I just can’t get enough of it.
Also, yesterday I had the amazing opportunity of sitting down with Adam for an interview for CONFRONT Magazine, and it was the most surreal thing. He was a complete sweetheart and I can’t wait to write up our conversation! It was a lot of fun and one of those interviews I’ll never forget. I freaking love my job.
2. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
I’ve been re-reading the series of 4 books in the last two weeks and I’ve fallen back in love with the entire thing. I blogged about it recently and how I grew up reading them, but it just felt like it was time to re-visit them now that the author wrote a brand new one! I can’t wait until I’m all caught up with the series again so I can read it. It’s called Sisterhood Everlasting and I just ordered my copy on Amazon! The picture is the 4 girls from the movie, and while reading I’m finding myself picturing them throughout. They really were the perfect fit to play Lena, Carmen, Tibby and Bee!
Lately I have been OBSESSING over pictures of tattoos. Everybody’s has been inspiring ideas for my own. I can’t wait to get my first, but I really, truly cannot choose what to do first. I want something about music, I want something about my passion for reading, or writing, something about growing up. Something beautiful. But mostly, I want something about music. How to choose? I just love everything about it.
No surprise here, but I just can’t WAIT to pack my bags and GO GO GO! In just over 40 days I will be with 3 of my best friends in one of my dream vacation spots. Oh, and I’m going to the place pictured above- we just booked our hotel there last weekend! Everything I do, I think about my trip. The things I buy, the books I read, the travel websites I visit. I’m impossibly excited to spend 3 weeks there!
Everywhere I look, people are talking about these shoes. I’ve clearly been living in a rock because it seems like EVERYONE knows about them. I’m trying to order my very first pair, but I’ve been having some trouble on their website. Figures. Anyway, I can’t wait to have a pair and jump on this bandwagon. This company seems to be doing a lot of good stuff and I’m excited to be a part of it!
What are you loving this week?
