Probably on my list for favorite editorials ever.
My heart goes out to Mike Brown’s family this evening and to all those affected by Ferguson. The news is extremely disappointing and I think it’s a decision that many people, like myself, just don’t understand. Brown’s family released a statement below:
I know everyone in Seattle is protesting right now, but please stay safe.
Is it Christmas yet? I actually am not that kind of person that loves listening to Christmas songs around this season, but we do love us some Ariana Grande.
There once was a time when we would just have a queue of videos to use for Wedding Mondays and I would be overly excited to be sharing another video with everyone every single week. The feelings haven’t changed. I still love the series and what we’re trying to do every week – but I’ll be honest, the wedding videos aren’t coming as often as they should be or as often as I used to promise. In watching so many of these, there’s a part of me that has become highly critical of what I’m seeing, but it’s important for me to remind myself and even all of you that these videos mean so much more than what we’re seeing. A wedding video captures just a small part of a couple’s relationship and leaves out a couple’s love that we don’t see beyond that video. So yes, we’ve watched quite a few tragic videos in our day, but and even though this is obvious and may not be worth mentioning – every couple’s story is the most beautiful part about a wedding day. Not a video.
With that, I’m happy to share a video that I discovered actually a while back – two months back actually! Becky and Mark are merging two cultures with their wedding day. Their rooftop wedding is absolutly gorgeous and one that I’m sure many people can only dream of. I love how this video provides a background on celebrating their two cultures and bringing them together as one. They did a really great job with this one!

With the holidays coming up just around the corner and us preparing our post for what to wear to your very own holiday party, the timing of Lauren Conrad’s guide to holiday dressing couldn’t have been better. In it Lauren showcases flawless looks and her new haircut that we know every girl will be taking to their hairdresser as inspiration in the next coming weeks – myself included?
So I’m probably the last person to watch this music video and before the other day, I didn’t really have any interest in it because while I love Sia – Chandelier just isn’t my favorite song. It was brought to my attention the other day though because I learned that Maddie Ziegler is the star of the entire thing and she was my favorite child on that horrible show “Dance Moms.” Yes, it’s horrible and I’ve watched countless seasons, but these kids are too precious. I’m mostly watching for them and not the moms. Maddie is incredibly talented. It’s kind of amazing that she landed a gig that was so mainstream and is probably going to launch her career further. I’m sure there was totally a plot/story line about this on the show where the moms were all jeal. That seems to always happen.
It just so happened that my day off landed on the day of The Flavr Blue concert in San Francisco. I’ve missed countless shows from not being in Seattle for the last year and every time I did come back to Seattle, I would always miss their shows by a couple of days. It was the worst luck. I’m so glad I got to see them this week because they are even more wonderful than before and it’s nice to have a slice of home in your new home.
Hollis and I also finally got the chance to meet each other for the first time! “Of course I know who you are, you’re Katie Yow Yow!”
We’ve always liked working with her and can’t wait to see what amazing things she’s going to do next with The Flavr Blue and on her own.
Crave You is actually one of my all-time favorite songs. I heard Daniela’s cover of “Latch” the other day and after that just had to look into more of her music. So far, I’ve listened to several of her covers that she’s done really well on, and eventually when I stop having these on repeat, I’ll move into some of her original music.
Only a day after we revealed the poster for Pitch Perfect 2, they released the trailer. And now we’re just pretty excited for 2015 to come.
I was lucky enough to have a random Wednesday day-off yesterday and was ready to take full advantage of it. For quite some time I’ve been craving Hawaiian food especially because when I was living in Seattle, I could always count on Kevin to go to Kona Kitchen with me. I decided to Quora question where I could find the best Hawaiian food in the Bay Area and my coworker suggested I try Takahashi Market in San Mateo. It’s not exactly right in my backyard, but I made the drive anyways because I could really go for a warm meal of Loco Moco on a cold and rainy day. I hadn’t been to this place before so I didn’t know what to expect. It really is just a market place and I think most people just order take out, however, there are few tables outside that you can sit and eat at. I considered just taking out and driving all the way back home, but no one really wants cold loco moco! So I bundled up and hunkered down and ate my meal. It was worth it. Believe it or not, this was my first time actually order loco moco despite having plenty of Hawaiian meals in the past. I loved the beef patty, the rice smothered in gravy and of course the sunny side up egg. It’s the perfect brunch meal and I can’t wait until the next time I come back so I can order their unagi and ahi poke!
