Lately I haven’t been feeling inspired, maybe it’s this annoying weather I don’t know. But last week Chris and I did a mini shoot with our growing record collection!
Hope this inspires you to jam out in a robe and collect some new music. Xoxo

I know I haven’t posted in forever and that’s mainly because the holidays kill me plus I went through a phase where I had no idea what to post.
But since its about to be 2017 and I’m going to be a typical basic girl and say new year new me and I will post more and also do vlogs!
My boyfriend and I started a live video on facebook a couple weeks ago of us making gingerbread houses and we had so much fun doing it and reading our family and friends feedback we decided to start vlogs!
We did some Christmas shopping in this vlog and were pretty pleased how it came out!
let us know what you think!
and YAS I’m back see you guys next week ❤
Last weekend my boyfriend and I went to an off-Broadway musical called “Himself and Nora.”
It was at the Minetta Lane Theatre in New York City.
The musical was about Irish-born writer James Joyce and his wife/muse Nora. It went through the events of their life together, the struggles of his writing getting published, as well as Nora staying with him through it all. Joyce was known for works such as “Dubliners”, “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” and his famous “Ulysses.” The musical shows how he left his home of Ireland to write, but how his love of the country never left him. As well as the guilt that came along with his Catholic upbringing.
The performances by Matt Bogart (James) and Whitney Bashor (Nora) were amazing! The production was beautiful, everything went together so well and the whole crew seemed really talented.
When I was watching the musical I could really understand the feelings of the characters, most importantly Nora. As the story went on and their relationship developed, you could see how much Joyce depended on her. Even if he didn’t always show it. My favorite thing about every musical I see is always the songs and soundtrack! I’ve always had a love for seeing musicals, when I have the chance, seeing them in New York City is always a great experience. I didn’t get to see many when I was younger so I stuck to all the musical movies that I could find, and would watch them over and over until I knew every song! Haha!
Now being older and saving money, to see musicals live definitely makes it hard to go back to that. It’s just something about seeing the performance happen right in front of you that’s so great and memorable, it really sticks with you.
So if you ever get a chance to see any Broadway or off-Broadway show take that opportunity! If romance and literature are some of your interests, go see Himself and Nora!
