Rock Stars Before and After a Performance

When I was more involved with music back in the day, I was used to seeing this sweaty transformation as seen above. It’s funny because you go into a show and you’re standing next to a gaggle of groupies oggling the musicians – the whole time I’m just thinking – seriously, just wait until you see them afterwards. It ain’t pretty. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed seeing this photo series entitled “Before/After” done by music photographer Brandon Anderson. I also think it’s quite interesting to see the comparison of both a soft and hard look that is visible in the before and after shots. In the before, the musicians look calm and at ease with themselves while the after shots show the musicians looking very hard and rugged.

Super Fun Day w/ Karlie Kloss

We’ve pretty much adored supermodel Karlie Kloss long before she was given the title of Taylor Swift’s bff and here’s why! I actually found this video to be quite cheeky and I can imagine that this is probably exactly how she is in real life.

And A Good Night

I’m really glad that I never run into the problem of having a shortage of blogging content. I’m still catching up news that I missed from my vacation and the “Apparently” kid is one that I am particularly enjoying.

Ellen is the greatest daytime talkshow host and kids like Noah Ritter are just the best.

Dudes in Startup Shirts

So it’s not the best looking Tumblr, but how Silicon Valley of them anyways…

Can we include some females in this though too? We also wear startup shirts if you didn’t know.

Wedding Mondays

Readers, I hope you all had the loveliest Monday! I took my first mini vacation in a very long time this past week and returned home to Seattle for some wedding fun and a whole five days of sunshine! Can you believe it? It’s usually around this time that Seattle starts to get a little bit colder, but as soon as I got back, I quickly realized that I wasn’t going to need the Uniqlo down vest that I had packed with me. So after attending that wedding myself, I would say I’m definitely in this little spirit of love today and am pretty excited to share with you this video. Now, this one has a more serious tone to it, but as a video that I can resonate with given that I’ve attended a couple of traditional Vietnamese weddings in my day… (In my day… I’m not that old, I just really wanted to say that.)

MTV’s “No Cameras Allowed”

I’m totally interested in watching this. MTV just made a documentary about a guy who has been sneaking into major music festivals and capturing his entire experience. You can watch the full documentary here. And I’ll probably watch this when I have time next!

Wedding Mondays

She’s a contributing editor for Vogue and he’s a Dutch shoe designer so there’s no way that this wedding wasn’t going to be the most extravagant thing you’ve ever seen. Actually just looking at their wedding photos kind of looks like they are on the set of a shoot. The best shoot ever. The gorgeous wedding took place in Italy and invitees included style icons like Oliva Palermo and Christie Brinkley. Her bridesmaids’ dresses – can we just own this for every day use?

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone and happy Labor Day!! Before we get started on talking a little bit about this video we’re featuring today, I wanted to take a second to dedicate today’s Wedding Monday to Heing and Shirley – my brother’s friends that got married yesterday in Seattle! Heing has been a follower of the Wedding Mondays series for some time now and while it is unconfirmed if he ended up having a video or not, we’re crossing our fingers that he did so that we can post it up here!

I absolutely loved Chelsea and Graham’s boho wedding in Maui. I thought that her look was perfect and everything about the ceremony was beautiful, but the tear jerker moment? Chelsea’s speech at the reception. What a strong couple they are. Here’s wishing them a very happy marriage together!

A Collection Part 40

As the years go on, the “A Collection” posts get farther and farther apart from each other! When it comes to the end of summer, I always feel like it’s the most appropriate time to wrap things up. I started this post back in April, can you believe it? It’s about time we got this published!

Goodbye summer. Hello fall! We’re so excited to be in you!

Wedding Mondays

Happy happy Monday everyone! I’ve been itching to share this video ever since I saw the details of Cindy and Chris’s special day on Green Wedding Shoes. Cindy was a gorgeous bride and I adored her dress – something I don’t think I could have ever pulled off myself. However, the best part about this wedding? The couple share a love for all things science and animals and that was very apparent in the theme of their wedding. Now I’ve included the video for you above, but the pictures? Swoon worthy for sure! Here are just a few of my favorite snaps.

The French Laundry Reviewed By the Cutest Four-Year-Old

I don’t have to much context on The French Laundry, but what I do know is that it is a restaurant in San Francisco considered to be a “very big deal.” And by very big deal, I’m sure it means that all of the plates have food on them that will fit in the palm of your hand, the prices are higher than you would ever believe for just a few bites and you have to make a reservations months in advance. Somebody, please clarify this for me if I am wrong.

San Francisco blog The Bold Italic recently had the most darling 4-year old review the restaurant and as you can imagine she had quite a few words to say. The best part of this review though? The photographs of her trying out the dishes for the first time. Apparently this post is well on its way to becoming one of the blog’s most popular posts ever.

To read the entire review and trust. it’s worth the read – click here.

Life After A Heroin Overdose

I’ve been watching a number of these videos for the past couple of weeks and boy, are they hard to watch. Alex overdosed on heroin when he was just 17 years old and since then, his mother has become his full-time caretaker. He is 30 years old now and while he’s getting better, it will be a long time for him to be able to fully do things on his own.

Aubrey

Some of my favorite things to watch when I’m on the internet are profiles of other people. I owe Herman Yung of Doobybrain a lot for  that. It has always been refreshing to me to see the way people live in so many different areas of the country and the world. It took me 23 years until I left home and lived somewhere for the first time and I just feel constantly inspired by other people’s adventures. It is one of the reasons why I started blogging in the first place and boy – has this blog not only introduced me to so many people, but it has connected me and others too. Watching this video of Aubrey tell her story about being a colorist at Bumble and Bumble and juggling motherhood at the same time is a reminder of that.

Wedding Mondays

It has been awhile since we’ve had a true Wedding Mondays post so today that’s what you’re getting. Swamped by work for these past few weeks, I’ve been playing catch up just getting through all of the weddings that I have missed. After I write this post I need to go back three weeks on Green Wedding Shoes to make sure I’m all caught up! Today’s post is really special because you not only get one video, but you get three! When I first read about this wedding on Style Me Pretty, they were highlighting a choreographed dance that the couple’s friends performed for them at their wedding and that they were a part of. In my head, I think I went – “oh boy, another poorly done choreographed dance from a couple that took maybe 5 weeks of a class for this.” Style Me Pretty teased the video by saying that things were about to get really good, but I didn’t believe it. Until I watched it. And thought it was so good that I had to watch it 3 more times after that.

It really is THAT good. So we’ve got three videos to document Connie and Tyler’s wedding – the choreographed dance, the proposal, and then the wedding  film. I watched it in that order and it was the correct order to watch in order to fall in love with this couple more and more.
