First time heading to the Vans Warped Tour? Don’t worry, I’m an old pro. I went to Warped for my first time when I was 13 years old! Not to date myself… but that was a while ago! When I was a teenager, it was the highlight of my summer. My friends and I counted down until our date every year and it was definitely one of the highlights of our year. To this day, it still makes me nostalgic & I love the fact that you can go and see a ton of your favorite and new bands all in one place – for the price of one ticket! Continue Reading
I’ve gotten a ton of requests lately for more Spotify playlists. So why not celebrate Monday with some Metal! I grew up in a metal home – meaning my family broke me into the world of angry music at a young age. I’m still pretty die hard when it comes to all things heavy rock, metal & alternative music. I love listening to metal when I’m working out, driving or sitting at the computer. Definitely helps me get in the zone! Continue Reading
I may not be going to Coachella this year, but that doesn’t mean I’m not all about the festival fashion! I went 4 years in a row for work back when I worked in the music industry (and also went to Stagecoach). It was a ton of fun, but I definitely got burnt out on the crowds, heat & insane prices. This year, I’m saving my money and stocking up my closet instead! Continue Reading
Festival season is upon us! So many awesome music and entertainment festivals coming up – starting with one of my all time favorites, SXSW (aka South by Southwest). I get a lot of questions about shows and which festivals I recommend, so I thought it would be fun to start by doing a breakdown of SXSW and my “pro tips”.
SXSW is a massive festival/conference filled with music, networking, and inspiration in Austin, Texas! This year’s event includes expanded access for all badge types with a ton of new opportunities for learning, networking, and discovery. There are a ton of different way’s to experience SXSW and there’s a ton of information online. I highly recommend starting by browsing Pinterest. There are tons of tips, recaps & ideas. But where do you begin?
Valentine’s Day can be kind of a buzz kill. Not everyone has a significant other. Not everyone gets to spend V-day with the one they love. Not all Valentinexpectations are always fulfilled. But you know what everyone does have… a squad. So whether you’ve got plans with your boo or are looking for something to keep yourself preoccupied, you should totally celebrate your favorite friends! This year, I’m all about Galentine’s Day. Because let’s be real, girls are the only ones who really care about the holiday anyways.
In the words of Leslie Knope… It’s wonderful and it should be a national holiday.
It’s that time of year… you know what I’m talking about. When everything shifts from snow covered candy canes to pink fluffy hearts. It’s the season of love. Valentine’s Day is approaching. Whether you’re single or taken, why not get in the mood with some lovey dovey jams. Obviously, these aren’t your average love songs.
It’s going to be a Not So Silent Night in our house this year! When I dragged the Christmas decorations out of the closet this year I had an idea, why not decorate with a little angst and edge? I threw on some Bad Religion, put on my thinking Santa hat & decided to give our house a Punk Rock Christmas makeover!
