My Bad

It just occurred to me that you couldn’t listen to my Spotify Song of the Days unless you had a Spotify account.

Sorry everyone! Looks like we’re back to SoundCloud.

Sushiquik Roller

I’m pretty challenged when it comes to cooking, but this looks like the simplest sushi tool I’ve ever seen.

Gotta have it now.

The Wanted – Glad You Came – Alex Gaudino Radio Edit

It’s an unhealthy obsession, but it is what it is. Don’t judge me for it.

Introducing: Jet City Stream

Since the city of Seattle is currently celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the World’s Fair, everyone is getting in on the action! Jet City Stream is a new radio broadcasting company sweeping the interwebz and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Their main focus happens to be local Seattle music and as we all know, I’m all about that. Additionally, they will feature the best of Seattle music from the past and the present.

Unless my television is on, I am almost always streaming/listening to music of some sort directly from my laptop. It’s refreshing to see though that there is something out there, like Jet City Stream, focused on highlighting local music and not just mainstream radio. Jet City Stream will also offer in-studio performances and exclusive performances straight from their roof-top deck.

Well, I think I’m sold. Here are some of my favorite Seattle bands that you will be able to listen to through their stream:

  • Lemolo
  • The Head and the Heart
  • Pickwick
  • Allen Stone
  • Fly Moon Royalty

My Worst Beauty Blunder

I am slightly embarrassed about the story I am about to share with you all, but at the same time – I think it just needs to be said. This could happen to anyone, or so I’d like to hopefully believe.

A few weeks ago, Ashley and I were downtown shopping and when we stopped into Sephora, I couldn’t resist. I didn’t exactly need a new eyeliner pencil sharpener, but it was purple and black so I had to have it. I could have continued washing my foundation brush with just water and soap, but this one was anti-bacterial! I made the purchases and they stayed in my Sephora for weeks until last night.

As I stayed in for the night and glanced over at my Chanel foundation brush, I thought that it could use a good clean. I whipped out the anti-bacterial shampoo from Sephora and analyzed the bottle. There was a “Try Me” sticker on it. Why would my bottle have this sticker unless it was a sample. Oh…light bulb! So this is the point where we come to a crossroads. Do we decide to throw it out completely or go ahead and use it anyways. No one is going to bring their brushes in and use this sample to clean it are they? I could tell my bottle had been used so yes, it looks like someone has done that already. Then again, there is some distance between putting the bottle directly onto the brush, but that is something I would have done too…

I wasn’t going to win this. I went ahead and did it and while this is completely gross and you’re probably wondering what could ever make me do such a thing, I urge you to ask yourself how a Sephora sales associate could ever think that it would be okay to sell me a sample product. That is not okay, therefore, I am worse off because of this decision.

A Letter to my Soon-To-Be College Graduate Self:

Congratulations, you are almost done! I know it’s a couple months away, but you do have every reason to celebrate. You will be able to do senior streak and you will have the time of your life. You’ll have so much fun that you will spend half of the day passed out, you may or may not puke in the library and you’ll spend the next couple of days trying to figure out how to get the blue paint out of the bathtub, the bed sheets, and the shoes. You will also realize that Crayola is not all that washable. But here’s the kicker- you’ll actually make it to your final, and your professor will be kind enough to pass you.

I know the future may seem like a blurred-dark-abandoned-hell-of-a-rabbit hole and every time someone asks you, “What are your plans after you graduate?” you want to cry, scream and even punch the person in the nose. But here’s one thing I want you to know – come graduation day you will forget all about the stress and live in the moment. You’ll spend the day smiling until your face hurts; you’ll stand on your chair and fist pump; you’ll see a big giant poster of your face- of course it’s the one picture of yourself that you absolutely hate – and your crazy family will be behind it waving and laughing; except grandma, she’s tired.

Microwhat

[photo cred: Swissmiss]

As children, we are often curious about everything that surrounds us. Why does this work like this? Why doesn’t this fit? This doesn’t make sense. What would happen if…? One Tumblr user decided to answer that common question we had as kids of “What happens if you put this in a microwave?”

The results are fascinating and rather than trying it out ourselves and making a mess, we can live vicariously through this Tumblr instead.

Oh what up Microwhat

Let Me Tell You About My Friday Night

I just watched three videos of The Wanted performing “Glad You Came.”
