So, I’ve been busy, busy, busy, hence the inactivity. I’ve been interning with this great travel website called Ecophiles, and as a part of their team I’ve been publishing regular content. For example, here’s an excerpt from my personal favorite post, 5 Sustainable Designers at New York Fashion Week you Need to Know About:
When it comes to sustainable fashion, it seems like those who practice what they preach are few and far between. These 5 designers took it upon themselves to bring a positive change to an industry riddled with waste. Check out the following designers who proudly displayed earth-friendly outfits on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week!
I found Nao while scrolling through Tumblr, which is obviously my go-to way to discover new artists. Her voice is unique in a way I can’t describe, and the music she creates is nothing short of an experience.
The Artist and their album name: Nao – For all We Know
Would I recommend it? Yes, definitely listen to the album in it’s entirety and in order, the little memos and short portions in between songs really enhance the overall experience the first time you listen. Then accept that “Girlfriend” is going to be your go-to song for at least a week. At least.
You know when you’ve got something you’ve meant to do, nothing urgent or pressing, but it keeps popping up in your life, undone? That’s how I feel about listening to Santigold, and a lot of albums, hence this blog column!
The Artist and their album name: Santigold – 99¢
Heard of/listened to before? Yes, and kind of. I’ve heard bits and piece of her music, but never actively sat and listened.
What I did while listening: Updated my resume
Better suited for: This would be an awesome halloween party soundtrack
Hesitantly. I like this album, but it definitely has a sound and style that is too unique to pinpoint, which might not do it for some people. Give her music a try, especially her other albums. She has a cult following and there’s definitely a reason for it.
Rating [10 being the best]: This album gets 6.7 out of 10 Alpacas.
These moodboards will definitely become more frequent at some point, but right now is not that point, so they’re monthly.
This months theme is adventure, and the acceptance as well as realization that sometimes the best adventure is hidden between the covers of a book, in a moment you didn’t expect to happen, or in someone you didn’t expect to encounter. Here’s to a month full of adventures, big, small, significant, and pointless.
Yes. These incredibly talented young ladies are associated with Beyoncé, and I feel that I can definitely hear any influence she or those she works with had. Chloe and Halle are definitely up and coming, the beats are catchy but most of all their voices are intense and gorgeous in the best way possible. Expect a completely different experience with each track, as mentioned.
Rating [10 being the best]: This album gets 7.3 out of 10 lazy loves.
My love for Aluna’s style began immediately, when I she looked just past the camera and into my heart in the music video for Your Drums, Your Love. Her outfits are always unique and eye catching, yet still often simplistic.
