This Song Will Make You Werk!!!! #WildHorses #BishopBriggs

My newest song obsession is Wild Horses by Bishop Briggs. At the moment the official music video only has 140k views. It was just published in Dec 2016. If you haven't heard it yet I urge you give it a shot!

When I first heard this song I was listening to 94.7, the indie radio station over here in PDX. It's a mellow tune with deep bass that makes me wanna run as fast as I can so that I can be a wild horse too. Domestication isn't nearly as interesting.


Bishop's look is totally 90s but that's the thing right now. I hold Miley partially responsible for bringing it back. I made a lot of strange fashion choices during that time in my life, even as a child. Lots of neon, fuzzy sweaters and tattoo necklaces! I remember that Maurice's used to be super cool back then. Now it's much tamer.

Bishop sounds kind of bored when she sings but I relate to it in a Daria sort of way. I wish the Daria revival was actually a thing. She's the coolest. Well, maybe second to the Ghost World crew.

Happy Valentine's Day Beauties!!!

Awesome things at Target.

Target never fails to tempt me.


This bow is $3. Worth it? Maybe.


How could I not love this?


This is legit mayo with no dairy. 


Happy tasty food. Too kawaii!!!

I am really trying to be a minimalist so I'm posting these here instead of buying them for my home haha. I am also trying to use reusable bags only. Both are such a challenge but better for the earth... and my wallet! 

Lately M and I haven't been blogging regularly. We are both doing well and are spending our time exploring other outlets, even dabbling in the digital world of coding. We still may show up from time to time. 

Wishing you all the very best!

Genius James Bay

If faux gospel folk like the jaw dropping Hozier is your thing you may already listen to James Bay. He's pretty mainstream now. I am just mesmerized by his music.


Just about anyone who has fallen out of love with someone at one point or another will resonate with this song. When I am in a mood it brings tears to my eyes haha. This is the song that got me into James Bay. Keep pulling on them heartstrings!


This song is nearly as popular as the first. The chorus is so fun to sing. Extra drama with some melody for good measure. The bridge that starts at 2:14 is everything.
"Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other." Lyrics from Google Play Music
These two are the only widely published James Bay songs I like right now but they are so amazing that I still wanted to write this post. Those songs alone are worth it. So good.


Scars just doesn't get me. It's starts to slow and my attention drifts away before I get to the chorus. I feel similarly about Move Together.

Best Fake Smile is not my speed. It sounds all right but it's not something that I can relate to. The lonely water lyrics make up for it all. One things for sure, Bay is an amazing writer/composer!

Tetra Pack Beans! @target #BPAFree

Being somewhat environmentally aware I have learned that most canned goods have BPA in the lining of the cans. To avoid this I use fresh or glass jarred items as much as possible, but sometimes convenience wins and I grab a can of beans or tomatoes. With these new strange beans I can avoid one more canned convenience food. Score!

I was pleasantly surprised with the tenderness of the beans. Sometimes kidney beans can be a bit tough, which is the worst. I had maybe two tougher beans in my pasta but it was better than some other organic brands I've tried.

Tetra packs still contain some plastic so ultimately it is better to cook your beans from scratch. Since that doesn't always happen these are a good alternative. Tetra packs are easily recyclable in most areas, Portland included!

Pokemon Go - the Easy way to reload a frozen iPhone app #FixTheGame

Despite server frustrations I am a huge fan of Pokemon Go. I have played it since the beginning as a little kid and to me this is just the most amazing app ever. Also, it encourages me to get over my fear of random people. Win win!

When I first started playing the game I restarted my phone every time the game froze. Then I learned this little trick for iPhone users that is so much easier. Check it out!



As I speak the server is back up. Thank goodness! Time to go into the forest and claim my space at the gym.

Brainless Funfetti Cookies

These cookies are way too easy, extremely cheap, and just fun. I wish I could tell you that they are healthy too, but sadly they are not. Make sure you have lots of people to share them with.
Ingredients:
  • 1 box Funfetti Cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut or vegetable oil
  • 1-2 TB star Sprinkles (not optional, according to Z)
Extras:

Method:

Put all ingredients into a bowl. Mix together with a fork until all dry mix is combined. Sprinkle lightly with colored sugar if you'd like. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 on an un-greased cookie sheet. 

There is plenty of oil in the mix so the cookies shouldn't stick to the pan. The bottoms will probably brown excessively if you use cooking spray. Parchment paper may be a good alternative.

Classic Digital Watches ft. Casio, Timex and Neff

I can't stand analogue watches. I can read them, promise! I just think that it takes way more time to figure out the actual time than it does to just look at a digital watch. I'm actually good with numbers but I am directionally challenged, and a touch dyslexic, so clocks just aren't my strong suit.

Also analogue watches are often not as waterproof or sturdy. I am not the type to diligently take off my watch off before I jump in the water, go for a hike or do the dishes. Delicate things are not going to survive on my wrist.

The problem with this is that analog watches are so much prettier than digital watches. Most digital watches are clunky, hideous or they scream "I shop at Walmart!!!". Nothing against the last by the way, you can probably find some of these there :P. Classic Casio and Timex watches are unisex, which means they are smaller and they come in all sorts of colors. Yasssss!

Colorful Casios


These Casios are currently only available in the UK. I have the mustard and turquoise. Totally wish that these were carried in the US because they rock, and I don't like to pay shipping. At least they are unique!

Neff Watches


I haven't tried this brand but these are totally rocking. They remind me of M!

Timex Collection


Timex's indiglo function is boss. I wish they carried more pastels though.

Casios


This lot is perfect if you are looking for something a bit more presentable. I am waiting for the last to come in the mail. It's reviews aren't the best but I love the color combo. It seems that some people find the white numbers to be hard to read in bright light. Hoping this is not a deal for me.

I really wish there was a classier line of digital watches. I'd totally drop $200 for an elegant, waterproof, indestructible, adorable digital watch. Until then these are totally great. Since they aren't too expensive I have a few different types to go with my mood. I've been feeling turquoise lately apparently.

Happy summer!
