Aloha, loves! It’s freaking cold today! It was so nice out yesterday, I was lucky enough to get to spend a large portion of the day outdoors. I was hoping it was going to be equally as nice out today because my friend and I have standing play dates with the kiddies every Tuesday and we like to take them for long walks when it’s nice out. Maybe next week, it is supposed to warm up again. Fingers crossed!
Anyway. Here’s my song of the week. It’s Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, literally sitting around a table singing some of their best songs. This is one of my absolute favorite songs of theirs! When the album version comes on in my car I turn it up as loud as humanly possible and sing along at the top of my lungs til I’m blue in the face. SUCH a good song. Enjoy!
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals – Things I Never Needed
I would just like to point out that I managed to post on this bad boy EVERY DAY this week! I deserve a cookie. And I think I’ll have one. boom.
Say hello to my Friday Favorite this week.
Insert heart-eye’d emoji here. I know she’s like somewhat of a Disney star or something and people are going to freak out saying she’s dressed way too scandalously or whatever, but hot damn does she look good! She’s 20, she’s growing up, she can wear whatever she wants. She reminds me of Camilla Belle here, no? Little bit. Anyway, to me this is head-to-toe perfection. I love, love, love the print of this mini dress! It’s short but has a high neckline so she’s showing a ton of leg but not too much of anything else. She has an absolutely flawless blowout, perfect red lip, chandelier earrings, and hott black pumps. I don’t know if you can tell I’m drooling from reading this, but I am, haha. Amazing, seriously. If I had legs like her’s I’d rarely ever wear clothes from the waist down. Kudos, Victoria!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! The hubs and I are hitting up a Grace Potter concert tonight! Totally stoked on it. I’ll try to post about it this weekend, as I’m sure it will be an awesome show. She never, ever disappoints! Until next time, kisses!
This past weekend I had the ultimate pleasure of finally seeing Grace Potter and the Nocturnals live. I have been a super fan of hers for a while now and always managed to miss her whenever she toured near me. She played at Beacon Theater in New York on Saturday and the hubs and I made sure we were there. We spent the weekend in the city and tried out some fabulous restaurants and also made sure we had time to do a little shopping. [you simply cannot go to the city without shopping – it’s not possible!]
Anywho – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are freaking amazing live. She has a presence on the stage that is like no other, her energy is incredible. Her band is so tight together and whoever did the sound for them this weekend deserves a raise because you could hear everything and perfectly! No one was drowned out by someone else. Flawless! We had great seats so I was lucky to get a few videos and amazing pictures. Below she dedicates ‘Falling or Flying’ to the victims of Hurricane [slutty] Sandy – as she called it! Enjoy. xo
Hola amigos! Happy Tunesday. Don’t you hate it when all day you thought it was a different day? I thought today was Wednesday. womp womp :[
Anywho. Today is Tuesday, or around here, Tunesday. I want to share a song with you guys that I am currently more than obsessed with. It’s from my girl crush, Grace Potter. She explained on Unplugged that she wrote this song for a friend of hers who passed away from a drug overdose. When you listen to the words, and think about losing someone who was close to you, it’s almost impossible to get through the song without getting emotional. I’m going to see Grace Potter & The Nocturnals next month and I’m almost hoping she doesn’t play this song because I won’t be able to see her perform it live without crying. I’m an emotional idiot. It happens to the best of us. Anyway! Here it is. Hope you guys love it as much as I do. :]
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals – Stars
If you know me you know I have a girl crush on Grace Potter. She is sex. I got my husband into her music too and he actually discovered this song before I did… go figure. In the past week he’s made me listen to it like, no joke, 50 times. So I figured it was only appropriate to share with you guys. This is a very different song from her usual tunes, kind of 80’s. I dig it though, and so will you. Check it out! Enjoy. :] xo
