Introducing Noteworthy a little segment where I’m just going to ramble about things I find are intriguing to me right now. It really serves no purpose other than for me to share things I’ve come across that I find particularly cool in the hopes you, my trusty reader, may also find them cool. Sounds pretty interesting, yeah? Maybe not, but it’s happening so enjoy, haha.
Coveting: Somehow I constantly find myself furniture shopping. I’m not in need of a new sofa at the moment, but if I was, I would certainly choose this one from Design Within Reach. Well if it ever fit my furniture budget. A girl can dream, right?
Food: First there was the cronut (which I still refuse to try) and then the waffle taco (I’d try 17 cronuts before I ever try a waffle taco) and now the churro ice cream sandwich. There’s something to be said about zany food combinations lately, but I can’t quite determine what that could be. All I know is, I might really be on board to try a churro ice cream sandwich.
Music: I mentioned previously my excitement over hearing the new Lana Del Rey album, and Ultraviolence did not disappoint. This album is much grittier and melancholy than her previous release Born to Die. It contains themes of loneliness and longing, and contains many nods to musical trademarks of the past. It’s a beautiful album but definitely not to be listened to if maintaining happiness is ones goal. On the other hand, French Exit by TV Girl is certainly a more upbeat choice for blissful listening. TV Girl’s albums never seem to disappoint me. There’s some serious summery vibes to this album and I just want to lay around all day listening to it whenever possible (with a cocktail would be even better)
Travel: I don’t have to mention my wanderlust. Everyone knows it exists by this point, but what else can be expected in summer? And I love this Kate Spade travel wallet which is now unfortunately sold out.
Sports: The World Cup, am I right? Every four years the world is united to celebrate football. (or at least pretend, as Americans, we like it as more than part of a physical education class curriculum) I quite like football sometimes so finding the time to watch games is pretty enjoyable. Unfortunately, England is out of the running for the cup, but I still really love this Elizabeth and James England tee. No shame in supporting my team of choice, right?
Fashion: I’m obsessed with playsuits this summer. They are comfy and cool. Unfortunately my new favorite one (pictured here on Lou Teasdale) is leather and doesn’t agree with Arizona heat. I guess there’s always winter right? Not to mention it’s not entirely budget friendly.
Books: One of my all time favorite classes I’ve taken has been about the history of rock music. So, I’m really excited to read Bob Stanley’s book on pop music when it is released next month. Mr. Stanley is a music critic who, in the book, breaks down genres, bands, and specific songs to recall the good and the bad in the evolution of pop music. I can’t wait to read it.
