I first discovered My Name Is You through my favourite artist, Joshua Radin’s Instagram feed. Brandon, one half of My Name Is You, plays in Radin’s band, and on a whim last week I decided to check out their website. The song above, Everything That, is the one that plays as you land on their homepage and I think it’s so frenetically beautiful. They have a YouTube channel that is so, so worth checking out to hear their other songs.
I’ll definitely be buying their self-titled debut EP, and probably their album, The Fortunate Ones this week. I’ve been craving new music and this stuff hits the spot.
I don’t normally do beauty product posts, just because I never really purchased that many of them, and I think there are many, many blogs who do it much better than I ever could. Example: Natalie, over at The Mustard Jumper knows her beauty products inside out (and who I recently had the pleasure of… Continue reading ->
Well, today’s Oscar’s red carpet was particularly beige, wasn’t it? Barely any colour, which was really disappointing! But first: Has anyone seen Pharrell’s skateboard? He *thinks* he left it wherever he left his giant ass hat, most likely over at Liza Minelli’s place last night at her pre-Oscars party, but really, who knows. Just text… Continue reading ->
We got a new oven last week and after not having a working oven for three weeks, I’m feeling compelled to bake ALL THE THINGS! So far, I’ve done banana cake, banana muffins (I had an excess of mushy bananas, obviously), and yesterday I wanted to give some cookies a shot. I decided on Anzac… Continue reading ->
This book was kindly sent to me for review by the lovely people at Penguin Australia. Written by actress Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls, Parenthood), Someday, Someday, Maybe tells the story of Franny Banks, an aspiring actress who is broke, working as a waitress and nowhere near getting a decent acting gig. She dreams of a… Continue reading ->
It IS Valentine’s Day, and again, whether you love or hate it, or couldn’t really give a crap, I’m sure you’ll want to add some of these awesome songs to your playlist for today. Some are happy, some are not so happy, some are old (because you know I love me some classic hits) and… Continue reading ->
Whether or not you like or care about Valentine’s Day, it’s hard not to notice it everywhere. We don’t make a huge deal about it – a little card, a little chocolate treat, nothing major. Because it’s so commercialised, and also because my birthday is five days later, but I like to do something small… Continue reading ->
Bumper edition of my favourite links from the web over the past….month I guess? I’ve had a LOT of stuff bookmarked to look at later, so here you go! Jerry and George, together again. I’m a huge Seinfeld fan, so I’m delighted that one of the Superbowl commercials featured them. Sure, it’s advertising Jerry’s show,… Continue reading ->
I have had this entry in the back of my mind since I went to The Design Market in November. If you’re feeling fatigued by the same old same old stuff in the shops and need some retail therapy with a less mainstream feel, then these retailers are worth checking out. Poppies for Grace has… Continue reading ->
I bought a few small things in the post-Christmas sales, mostly work clothes, but this dress has to be my favourite. It’s technically my Christmas gift from my mum, but I chose it myself after Christmas. I saw this dress before Christmas in Myer, but couldn’t justify the $200 plus price tag. Waited two weeks… Continue reading ->
