Listening Lately

Jolene told me I need to stop sitting on these things and instead to get around to posting them so she has new music to hear. So here you go.

The Words – Christina Perri

Okay, this one. It’s got “words” in the title and that’s probably what grabbed me, but I stuck around for the dreary weather and the guy growing orchids and chopping wood. Then I got really scared that this was a dead girlfriend song and I kept praying it wasn’t and what I’m saying is please stick around because it’s NOT a dead girlfriend song. It’s better. And that part where she steps into the tub with her jeans on? I want to write a story about that.

Listening Lately

Enjoy The Silence – Denmark + Winter (Depeche Mode cover)

I don’t watch Bates Motel (some things are too weird for me), but I heard this song on a recent ad for it and I like this version.


Flight Facilities – Two Bodies feat. Emma Louise (Lido Remix)

This is the sort of music I listen to when I’m working. Songza has a few playlists that I rotate through and I’ve found some on 8tracks that I enjoy. I think I found this on one of those.

Your House – Jonatha Brooke

I don’t know what made me think of this one, but I remembered it the other day. It reminds me of being 17.

Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

The dancing. And I want her hair every day for the rest of my life.

Can’t Help Falling In Love – The Once

Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding

50 Shades aside, I love this song.

Stitch Fix #2

I was so thrilled to get my second Stitch Fix today and couldn’t wait to start trying on items. At the same time, I was a little worried right before opening the box. Because it’s basically summer and some people get crazy ideas about summer.

You know what I’m talking about. SHORTS. And…things without sleeves.

I’m not asking much, I don’t think, to want to live in a world of cardigans and scarves forever and ever.

Anyway, so I opened this box and immediately turned my face away. There were bright colors. Bright colors in patterns. Smelling salts would have been nice right at that moment. I looked at each item and did not have a lot of hope going into it, but decided I needed to try it all on and take photos.

I was so excited about it I didn’t even bother to break out the big camera or change out of my yoga pants. You’re in for a real treat.  Continue reading “Stitch Fix #2”
