Music Mondays | The Head and The Heart

Heard this group for the first time last week, and I really enjoy their melodic sound.  The Head and The Heart, despite what might be a semi-corny band name, have put out a really enjoyable album with bits of piano and bluegrass thrown in.  It's become a quick favorite!

Check out 'Lost in My Mind' from their self-titled debut album below...

Baby Shower Bliss

A friend of mine posted photos from this baby shower she went to in Nashville.  It was so classy and creative, I just had to share.  All photos are from EBW Photography.  Click over for more!

And the house is just to die for!  Really inspiring as we're decorating our first house right now...

Happy Friday!

Music Mondays | Mayer Hawthorne

I discovered Mayer Hawthorne a week or two ago.  Maybe I'm a little behind the curve on this one, but his albums are a blast!  I thoroughly enjoy his brand new album How Do You Do, as well as his 2009 album A Strange Arrangement.

He's a nice mix of soul without being to serious in his lyrics.  His music will take you back, just like this video:

Warby Parker + Paste

Two of my favorite brands are getting together for an event in Brooklyn.  Annnd you should go.

Gah!  I need to find a wormhole between KC and BK. Pronto. Also, if you've never heard of Warby Parker or Paste Magazine, you should get on that.

Berry Lipstick

So, I finally took the plunge this weekend, and I purchased some berry lipstick for Fall.  I ended up with Dior's Hypnotic Red, which is a deep eggplant color. 

Here's a fun photo of my friend Amanda and me with the new shade on!  It's a little scary at first, but I love the look of it.  Lipstick might be the new eyeshadow, dare I say.

Music Mondays | Lana Del Rey

Now that I've made the transition out of the music industry, I still need to keep myself engaged and up-to-speed on new music.  Hence... "Music Mondays."  A totally cliche name, but whatever. It gets the point across.  I've done plenty of music posts here, and now it's time for consistency.

First up, Lana Del Rey.  I can't get away from friend recommendations and blog reviews about her current singles.  Looks like she's had a somewhat perfect storm of buzz and opportunity.  Here's her new video for her song 'Blue Jeans' - and rumor is there should be a whole album of this chick by January!

Also, here is the video for 'Video Games' that first got me hooked:

We'll miss you, Steve.

Having grown up with a father in the computer business, and now transitioning into the tech world myself, I feel compelled to write about the loss of Steve Jobs yesterday.  He was a modern visionary, and I think the world is more interesting and connected because of the products he created.  We'll miss you, Steve.

Ok, now I really can't get this silly song out of my head...
