What I’m Listening to Now

Francois and the Atlas Mountains – Perpétuel Eté If anyone wants to take a similar photo to the one above, hit me up because it looks so fun! Maybe in the winter time when it’s cold enough to wear sweaters again. Or we could meet in San Francisco, where summers are always reliably cold. Anyway, the sweater-connected folks above are…

Pick of the Summer: Orphan Train

I just read a book, recommended to me by my mom, recommended to her by my grandma (this makes it an automatic winner)! The book of note is Orphan Train, written by Christina Baker Kline, and it combines a historical storyline (a young Irish orphan, Niamh, is sent on a train to the Midwest to be adopted out in 1929)…

Almost the Weekend!

Hello friends! What are you up to this weekend? Check the list below if you need some light reading, art recommendations, a video to tide you over until Sunday (GoT!), or a weekend length home DIY. Need a weekend project? Paint a wall in ombre! We all know podcasts are my favorite form of media, but there’s even a few…

My Legging Addiction

    I recently became a regular at 10 am yoga class. I used to be the first one to claim my dislike for the activity. I thought it was too slow (yes, I know there are many different types) based on one experience in which I had to hold each pose for 15 minutes in a 60 minute class.…

Talking and Listening at Tin House

Hello rad-ish readers! I’m at a writing workshop this week and since I’m up for a Book Club post, I thought I’d write about my first few days settling in here. Thanks for reading! –Wesley Hello from Tin House Summer Workshop in Portland, Oregon! This is a weeklong writing workshop hosted at Reed College by indie publisher Tin House, featuring some crazy-good…

Chicken Soup for the Soul

I remember those Chicken Soup for the Soul books I used to see all the time when at bookstores or the library. I looked at the covers again and they seem very 90’s and early 2000’s to me, which is probably around the last time I picked one up. In case you haven’t heard of them, the general idea of…

Slides on the Rise

I’ve got to admit- I’m having a real love affair with slides right now. They’re easy to put on, quick to throw off, and they are so darn cute. If you have a bright, summery pedicure, your toes can peek out so nicely. Casual summer barbecue? Slides. Out to drinks with friends? Slides. Work in a casual office? You got…

Roadtrip Beets*

*Veggie Pun Intended   Let’s be honest 2016 was a great year for the world of music. Everyone seemed to have something to say from Solange Knowles to Kaytranada (more on the top albums from 2016 here). Although we are already over halfway through 2017, I’m still stuck in the past. Recently I have been binge listening to Banks most…

Friday 5ever

Hello ravishing radishes! This past Monday marks the 20th anniversary of The Sorcerer’s Stone coming out and what better way to celebrate than by taking this very scientific sorting hat quiz. If taking the quiz made you crave some butter beer, we found something even cooler (ok, just as cool) … beer made from coastal fog condensation!   Other than…
