Lincoln Memorial Shoot

This past December, my family went to Washington, D.C. as we usually do. Being from that area, it’s something easy and fun to do. Thankfully this year, we had family in town for Christmas and we all went to see the Washington National Cathedral which was one of the few places I had never been. (I will try to make a post about this D.C. visit which, if it ever gets done, will be filed under “adventures”). We also hit up the stairs featured in The Exorcist, the Botanical Garden (which I do not have any pictures of) and lastly, the Lincoln Memorial. Here are some of the pictures that my brother took while we were chilling out there.

I am wearing a yellow, black, burgundy, and white turtleneck sweater that was purchased at Target, high waisted jeans made by d.jeans and Dr. Martens that were bought on Amazon! The coat I’m wearing is actually a thrift find. It is a mink coat designed by Mary Sachs.

I got the shirt on clearance, the pants a long time ago and the coat was thrifted so I cannot link them here, but the link for the boots is: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000W3YM6S/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=317W1GG8YFXE4&coliid=IM82HW2H1EHQX&psc=1.

I said Happy New Year in my playlist post, but I still can’t believe that it is 2017 already and I just have to say again how excited I am and that I can feel great things coming this year. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

November Playlist

11. November Playlist '16.jpg

HEY!  IT”S NOVEMBER!  Last month I admit that I was kind of in a rut and had a hard time putting together a playlist, but it’s now November and that is going to be put behind becauuseeee November is one of my favorite months!  My music style is shifting into slower songs because it’s becoming colder out and that’s just what happens to me in the fall and winter… I think.  This playlist compares a lot to the September one, but at the same time it doesn’t because while the songs are slower in tempo, they’re not really the same genre.  They’re still totally fun to jam to (I’ve been doing it nonstop).  It contains a lot of The Lumineers and songs from two of my new founds bands Flor and LANY.  I really like these bands and hope they put more music out soon.

As always, here are my favorite tracks for the month:
Warm Blood by Flor
Rush of the Night by Dive In
Surrender by Beak Attack!
and like you lots by LANY

I had to include a fourth this month, forgive me.

More than Black and White

DSCF1983.JPG

I’d love for life to be in black and white,
and for it to be easy,
and for us to know what we want,
and to be sure of it one hundred percent.
I’d like for a lot of things to be different than what they are.
But we’re all too busy worrying about what other people think
and how they will judge the decisions we make.

Who knows if we’ll ever know what we want,
but we’re doing our best to figure it out, despite the world.
I admit that I worry what people will say,
I feel like I don’t fit in,
but I won’t give up trying to identify myself,
and I won’t give in to what society wants
because I am not black and white
and there is so much more that I hope to be.

We are so much more than just black and white
and what we are told we have to be.
We’re all individually unique
and we are each full of so much color,
and I am so tired of watching this world try to shape us into the same person
and change our colors to fit its palette filled with the same generic ones,
and try to tell us who we are supposed to be,
and tell us we can’t succeed unless we blend in.

So don’t let society shape you into something you don’t want to be,
don’t let it mask the colors inside you that want to reveal.
Be who you want to be.
Flourish, learn, grow, and love your life,
and along the way take pictures,
make memories and live stories worth re-telling.
Do all the things you’re scared to do,
the things that make good stories,
go out on a limb, try something new,
and don’t be sorry.

I Really Love Music

I love music.  I mean, I really love it.  I was born to love it.  I have it running into me through my ears and eyes, through my soul and veins, and out my mouth and fingertips.  It’s every part of who I am.  It gets me through the day.  It saves me as I save it to my library on Spotify.  It motivates me and helps me discover who I am and gives me passion for creativity.  Just hearing a single line flowing together in just the right way makes me fall in love with a song instantly.  It helps me to feel all the emotions I have buried deep inside, even if I don’t necessarily want to feel them.  It creates a release for them. It puts me at the ease I so desperately need some days.  There are so many different types of music.  Music that makes you wanna dance and music that makes you wanna cry.  Music that makes you wanna laugh and music that makes you wanna scream.  Music that helps you fall asleep and there is music that lets you dream.  It fills every corner.  I can’t rid the need for it in my life.  Music is so important to me and it captures all the words that I am somehow unable to come up with myself and displays them just the way I hoped they would be.  It’s amazing how the perfect combination of notes and rhythms can create such a lively feeling inside of you.

October Playlist

10-october-playlist-16

HAPPY OCTOBER! The beginning of a great season is among us! It’s ironic that I have a song called September Song on here considering this is the October playlist, but to be fair, I make these during the previous month.

Without further ado, here are my favorites from this playlist:
Settle Down by The 1975
I Won’t Let You Walk Away by Make ft. Madison Beer and The Lost Kings
Like You Want To by Kita Alexander.

Enjoy,
x sass ;P
