Katy B - On a Mission

For any of my European audience, you're probably going to be wondering why I'm posting this video since this song has been out for a long time. Regardless, funky house, and many other genres barely make an impact on this side of the world. I first heard this song almost a year ago, and it took a while for it to grow on me but I've learned to appreciate even more genres of music than I listened to before. Even though we live in such globalized culture, simple things like musical tastes, can differ from place to place.

Adele - He Won't Go

WOW! Adele, never ceases to amaze me with her work. Ever since I heard Chasing Pavements years ago, I fell head over heels in love with her music. The song below is just another example of how beautiful her music is. Although the song doesn't resonate with me (in terms of the lyrics), I can still feel every word of hers and because of the journey I've traveled, I do feel I understand this song as well.

Enjoy!


Love, hugs, and kisses,

Feathered Hair

This photo was taken over a month ago by my sister, before I was headed out to spend some time with my friends. It was suppose to be a photo of my outfit but she decided to go for a close up instead, while I was reading off my my BlackBerry. Just thought I'd be a narcissist and post this.
Anyway, I won't have much time to blog until my birthday. It's November 14th, in case you're wondering. I've got a lot of work to get done but I'll be back soon.

Kavinsky - Nightcall

Take a listen to the video I've posted, it's called Nightcall and its produced by French electro house artist, Kavinsky. This song is sick! Seriously, I first heard it a little while back and I liked how reminiscent the song was of the 80's but it didn't fully appeal to me then. After hearing it again in the Drive soundtrack, it made me fall obsessively in love with the song. Perhaps the feel of the movie really lent to visualizing the song itself (admittedly I'm also head over heels in lust with Ryan Gosling...yes, I thought he was a cutie since Breaker High days annnnd he's Canadian, BONUS!). I swear I wanted to just hear it playing through the whole movie instead of hearing people talk. Someone told me I'd love the soundtrack of Drive, obviously they were right and they know me well enough to my musical taste...even though its all across the board.

Givenchy Haute Couture - Fall 2011

Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2011 is breath taking. I am so enamoured with these pieces, if only I had the thousands of dollars needed to purchase them! These days, couture is looked at as something that is a dying breed in fashion, and it generally doesn't make much money for the designers and fashion houses themselves. Regardless, when you realize the work and effort put into the creation of these clothes, you can only gasp when you see something as beautiful as Givenchy's line. The detailing and the intricacies of each stitch and design, is just amazing to look at. I know this came out in July but I feel like I'm in awe every time I see these gowns. It's beautiful, refreshing, sophisticated, angelic, and slightly mermaid-like. Below is a video created by Style.com that allows you to understand couture and how Riccardo Ticsi designed and created these dresses. I've also added photos of my favourite gowns for you to enjoy.







The gold one is my favourite!

Mayer Hawthorne - A Long Time

I love this song and I really enjoy Mayer Hawthorne's music. I can't wait to hear his newest album "How Do You Do" which releases in only a few days, on the 11th to be exact. The video below is for his song "A Long Time", at first I got a bit psyched out because I thought it was a homemade Youtube recording of some old show, but I realized its the actual music video! 
Enjoy!

I love this shot! Hermes is definitely trying to utilize social media to its benefit.
