“Listen to the hummingbird
Whose wings you cannot see
Listen to the hummingbird
Don’t listen to me.

Listen to the butterfly
Whose days but number three
Listen to the butterfly
Don’t listen to me.

Listen to the mind of God
Which doesn’t need to be
Listen to the mind of God
Don’t listen to me.”

                                                                                   -Leonard Cohen 1934-2016

Has it really been a year??? When Coachella rolls around I’m always astonished at how fast time goes by. We’ve been in LA for a year now. Crazy. Apparently there have been a few upgrades this year like actual bathrooms, and a new app that includes a “friend finder” as well as a way to organize set times. Coachella is obviously a music festival, but its equally about the fashion. I always seem to opt for the biker-chic look, which includes boots, that for me, are a crucial part of survival. Pair with a comfy pair of cut-offs, and add the fancy/girly on top with a cutout crop that has sexy tie details. Every girl wants to look good, but don’t let your appearance take over the whole weekend, if you plan ahead, you wont have to focus on that. Remember, it’s all about the dancing, frolicking, ferris wheel rides, and only a little about taking pictures. Check out last years style post here, and a Festival Vest DIY here, and stay tuned for an upcoming Festival Survival Guide on Thursday…

The new year brings with it a feeling of cleansing and renewal. Here we have a playlist in honor of a new year, and a new attitude. It’s easy to get caught up, and for me music can make my mood do a 180. I’ve compiled a list of a few mood lifting jams, that are sure to evoke a happy dance. 11 tracks spanning many genres of music including electronic, jazz, folk, R&B, funk, and even a couple old school jams from Shade Sheist and Tupac for this hump-day in January. Just remember “You got to keep ya head up!”

indian summer final ▼▼▼▼

Fall rolled around here in LA, according to our calendar, but not the thermometers. This past weekend was spent entirely at the pool, and my dashboard read 93 degrees. An “Indian Summer,” is defined as a period of warm weather in late autumn or early winter…and it’s been the longest and hottest Indian Summer in recent history. This playlist is a testament to days still spent in cutoffs with the windows rolled down. Im milking it for all it’s worth.

Pretty Girls-Little Dragon
Classic (ft. Cat Powers)-The Knocks, Powers
Warm Water (Snakehips Remix)-Banks Grind-Les Sins
They Don’t Want-Electric Wire Hustle
VQ-DJ Day
Let Us Stay Young-Lucas Nord, Urban Cone
Jeeper Creeper-Sinkane
Carbonated-Mount Kimbie
Goldmine-Kimbra
The Light-Sbtrkt, Denai Moore
Drive-Tokimonsta, Arama
Sunset Strut-Lost Midas
Basic instinct-The Acid
Waves-Bahamas

Quite the eclectic playlist here, compiled of tracks I’ve been enjoying by the beach as of late. Starting out with some Latin flava courtesy of Quantic (P.S. anything from him is sure to get you moving), some true feel good old school with “Where I Wanna Be” from Shade Sheist, Nate Dogg, and Kurupt. I recently learned about The Internet from my co-worker Heidi-shout out girl…these guys rock. Had to add some Flume in since Im seeing him on Tuesday. New stuff from old favorites Sea Wolf, and Bahamas. The rest simply speak for themselves…a few tracks to accompany these remaining summer days.

Transatlantic-Quantic
Where I Wanna Be-Shade Sheist, Nate Dogg, Kurupt

Everything here explains what I would like today. Coffee, minimalism, comfy shoes, blogging, candles, sushi. Alas, I am a working girl now, and its Monday…so thats a no-go. The good news? Vacation is on the horizon…I leave for a week in Colorado this Saturday. Summer Red Rocks shows are calling my name. Flume, Cut Copy Chromeo=dancing all night. I just have to get through this week. Stay tuned for updates…

FKJ2

▼▼▼▼

I flew to Colorado two weeks ago to surprise one of my best friends on the night of her engagement. What followed was a mountain weekend filled with champagne, dance parties, family dinners, and a gaggle of giddy girls waiting for their turn to try on the ring. Of course there is a soundtrack to our lives, and for a weekend like this, it’s a continual music share-a-thon. On the drive home it was my turn to plug in Spotify and update a couple of music hungry homies on my recent faves playlist. A few top artists on the current rotation include; DimSum, Blood Orange, and newest obsession, French Kiwi Juice. Yes, there is a trend here-bands with food related titles, Alex noted. If you are a foodie, or music lover alike, try a taste of FKJ. A dreaded (the hair kind) French DJ delivering deliciously juicy tracks.
