5 Things Making Us More Pumped Than Old School Reeboks

Happy Friday, darlings!  I hope everyone’s had a great week.  I’m personally amped as I’m headed out in a couple hours to reunite with two of my college besties back in Bloomington, Indiana – aka our college town.  Aka the scene of late nights, bad decisions, and one fine college education.  I can’t even handle the excitement.

Anywho, speaking of besties, my home slice Steph and I pooled together five things we’re loving right now… Here goes!:

1) The Age of Adaline, starring Blake Lively, out next weekend:

2) This plucky little ditty below from hip hop band Jurassic 5, who I would’ve never expected to produce a song with this kinda sound. I’m sometimes listen to it on repeat when I’m posted up at work, all stressed out and shiz:

4) Christina Aguilera’s spot-on impersonation of Britney Spears: 


5) This clean front entry of a Connecticut home is simple yet totally inviting.  Everything about it is charming. More pix here. PS: Those sconces…

Have a marvelous weekend!

About 3 Minutes of Sunshine For Your Day

Do y’all know the band Matt and Kim? In 2008 I was completely obsessed with their first big breakout hit “Daylight” – I LOVED it and played it probably 3,000 times that year.

Welp – the couple (yes, they’re a couple) has a brand spankin’ new song out and while it’s totally fun and infectious like the aforementioned jam, it’s the video that’s putting a smile on my face.  Check it out below – and check out their new album “New Glow” – which dropped just yesterday!:
