playlist

A kickass playlist and summer go hand and hand. You can’t have one without the other. When I create a summer playlist I add songs that help me visualize myself at the beach with a drink in my hand and the sun beaming down on me, or just having a good time with friends by the pool. For that I go to music by Disclosure, Flamingosis, Autograf, De Lux, Alex Guesta, Beach House, Twin Shadow, Lany, Neon Indian, Tensnake, Solidisco, Foster The People, Tame Impala, Beach Fossils, VHS Collection, Duke Dumont, Youth Group, Empire Of The Sun and Best Coast. Then I bring back some of my favorite throwbacks likeRead More →

poolside

One of my favorite things about summer is finding a great poolside or beach read and getting lost in the story. Every summer I try to read as many books as possible and I thought I’d share with you some of my favorites from over the years. You know, the ones you start reading at 10AM and by 3PM you’re eight chapters deep and look like a lobster. So slather on some suntan lotion and get ready to escape in a fantastic page-turner! Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann was the first of its kind, filled with tales of friendship, sex, drugs, and adultery,Read More →
