It appears that many Angelinos have been caught up in the chaos and hype of Coachella. I am among them. The festival goers get pretty pumped for this event in Palm Springs every year but the killer lineup this year has taken the excitement surrounding the festival to another level. Though I am trying to make weekend 2 work out for myself I am pretty bummed that the highly anticipated first weekend is not in the cards for me.
I have also been reminded of the lesson my grandparents taught me when I was younger that life is full of disappointments but its how you handle them that defines your character. If the second weekend also does not end up happening I will try to remind myself that there are more important things than an epic weekend of music and festivities. If you are able to attend either weekend or in some lucky cases both, I hope that you will make the most of it and not let minor issues or potential drama like the moral dilemmas of which crop top or bro tank to wear with your jorts or deciding between Avicii and Dre and Snoop prevent you from enjoying the experience and most importantly the music.
My grandmother on the other hand never needed to be reminded of these lessons. Since her birthday is next weekend I thought it would be fitting to dedicate a post to her and honor her memory.
I have posted songs from the awesome band Neon Indian, an act I’m super stoked is part of the Coachella lineup.
Good morning Fleurettes! This weekend I made the spontaneous decision to go to Austin for the Media, Film, and Music Festival known as SXSW. I like to be spontaneous sometimes, and go with the flow but I also like to be organized especially since I booked a flight for Monday morning only. I’m normally not the biggest morning person, and my spend Sundays doing leisurely things, but thought it was necessary to get an early start, have a healthy breakfast, good workout, and start mentally preparing and getting organized for my trip. I am already enjoying listening to some of the bands attending the festival this year(thank you Spotify) but am still overwhelmed with the lineups, schedules, and of course parties, so if anyone has any tips for the festival I would love to hear them! Thanks! Hope everyone has a great morning, whether you plan to be productive, relax or spontaneous! xo
I was finally able to see the much anticipated Lars Von Trier film Melancholia, and it was well worth the wait. The are no words to describe the sheer brilliance and beauty of this exquisite yet haunting film. The overture of slow moving images and eery Classical music is a breathtaking masterpiece on its own. Another memorable scene, features lighting of lanterns following a wedding ceremony, a tradition that mainly finds its origins in Asian cultures. I have been fascinated with these lanterns as long as I can remember and have always wanted to light one of my own. These airborne lanterns may also be referred to as fire balloons and they illuminate the sky in the same way as the planet that haunts the lives of these victims in the film.
Fever. Happy birthday baby boy! You may legal today, but you will always be super cute, super sweet and an inspiration to us all. We love you! Here’s a look back on his first appearance on Ellen before he was the mega star he is now and when he still had those epic bangs.
It’s the Biebs’s birthday today and what would be a better way to spend it than on the Ellen show? Ellen of course made the bday boy’s day extra special with some toys, surprises, and a song performed by Megan Mullally, her own Bieber version of the classic
