Oh, GQ, you never fail to give me plenty of well dressed eye candy. This week's swoonsday is Matt Bomer, star of 'White Collar,' and formerly of soaps featuring some lovely henleys. Enjoy.

This week's tunesday pick comes from an artist who is also an actor. Jason Schwartzman is no stranger to the screen, nor to music, being the original drummer from Phantom Planet. His solo effort, Coconut Records is perfect "Saturday morning, grab some coffee and a book and sit on the porch in the sun" kind of music.  His song "Summer Day" was used in some Apple commercials, and features Kirsten Dunst on guest vocals. 

Thanks to my sister for telling me to dl their CDs when I was looking for new tunes.<3

*This is not the official video for "Wires," but it was the best I could find :)

birthday blues

It's my birthday tomorrow, and I'm celebrating all weekend long. One of my sisters besties turns 21 today[happy birthday erin!] and we're heading to the bars of the Sault Friday, then hosting a boozy bonfire Saturday night. Then, I take the sister back to EL Sunday, and we're off to Chicago for the day Monday, to take part in an open call for the NOH8 campaign! 
Pretty stoked.
I'm pretty over being 23, and equally over turning 24, so this years birthday theme is "ON TO THE NEXT ONE," a glittery, 90s rap wars, thugged out hot mess. Here's some inspiration for my hazy weekend to come :)
