Are you ready for the most random selection of songs that your ears ever did hear?
Frank Ocean - Pink Matter ft. Andre 3000 // This song is wonderful. Frank Ocean can sing me into a happy little coma.
Usher - Hey Daddy // So if you are having a bad day/week then you should just listen to this song... I don't care how old it is. No one can be frustrated or stressed when listening to "Ursher" croon baby-making lyrics. PLUS: He dances in this video and it makes me incredibly excited.
The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather // If your local radio station hasn't overplayed this song to the point that you hate it, give this band a listen. I love their album and as much as I tried to find another one, this remains my favorite song.
Lorde - Buzzcut Season // I love Lorde's album and this was one of my favorite songs the first time I listened to it and remains so on the 4,567 listen.
Justin Timberlake - Drink You Away // Oh, you were looking for a new anthem to belt out in your car? Look no further. Sorry all other LA drivers who have witnessed me doing this.
Santigold - This Isn't Our Parade // This is just a damn good song.
PTAF - Boss Ass Bitch // I know I said 6 and this technically makes 7, but that's because this song doesn't count. It's a secret vice. The song I am sharing with you, but wouldn't want my grandmother knowing I listen to. So it's like this never happened. Our little internet secret. The lyrics are atrocious/explicit/gross... so sorry for that. The video is even more terrifying - I only saw it when I went to put it in this post and I don't recommend it. In fact, I recommend you listen to this song with the window minimized. It's TERRIFYING and can ruin the song for you. So why do I secretly like this song so much? Because if you are ever in a funk, fast forward to the chorus, listen to it on repeat, and know that you are a B.A.B and no one can change that. It will leave you on a Beyonce-Sasha-Fierce-Conquer-The-World high.

confession: these photos are a few months old, but in my defense it's practically summer year round in LA
Before moving to LA, I did a lot of what I do best...trolling the internet. Mostly for an apartment, but I did keep a little list of things I wanted to do or see once actually residing in California. One of the things on my handy dandy notepad was Milk Jar. I happened upon this cookie crack den via an instagram comment they left on someone's photo telling them they were recently opened and encouraging them to stop by. I clicked over to their profile, was intrigued, and bookmarked it (as if I really needed encouragement). Well this is proof that social media really works because I eventually did traipse myself over to Milk Jar and now I'm an addict (practically selling plasma to get more cookie money). The photos can't possibly do these perfectly gooey heaps of deliciousness justice. They are by far the best cookies I have ever purchased.Then I discovered their cold brew iced coffee and I started plotting ways to set up a tent and just never leave...what else is there to life?
Lesson to learn from all of this:
- If you are in LA or happen to visit, this is a must visit (click here). My advice? Start with the classic chocolate chip
- Social Media REALLY works for businesses
- I have an unhealthy attachment to cookies.

Max Wagner needs to come home with me right now. Not in the same way I want pre-marriage Channing Tatum to come home (get your mind out of the gutter), but as in home to live on my walls. I first discovered his work in Bri Emory's living room, which by the way is my ultimate home decor inspiration right now (Emily Henderson, please be my BFF for life).
See that's Max on the wall looking all perfect. For Christmas I plan on splurging for one of his prints. Happy Chrismuhkah to me. I'm thinking about framing and centering it above my headboard. The only question now is which one. Here are the top contenders:
ice cream // One of my favorites for OBVIOUS reasons. I think this would be hilarious over my bed, but possibly too feminine?
county line // the colors in this are just spectacular
new york // okay, confession I just REALLY like this one. If you live in NYC please buy this.
so cal // another favorite for obvious reasons
