I first heard of the band Exitmusic when I was in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival a couple of weeks ago, and they blew me away with their expansive, breathtaking sound that sent chills down my spine. When I found out they were playing a show at Philadelphia’s Milkboy this week I was eager to see them again and sit down with the band for a quick interview.
Exitmusic consists of married couple Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church – and if Aleksa looks familiar to you, its probably from her role as Angela Darmody (the wife of Jimmy, Michael Pitt’s character) on Boardwalk Empire. Read more »
This recipe comes from vegetarian food blogger, Kate, of Cookie & Kate. I love her blog because it’s chockfull of unexpected food combinations that approach the vegetarian and whole foods lifestyle with zest. Just because you choose to eat food close to the source and in season doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun. With her pup Cookie by her side, it seems like Kate is always playing it up in the kitchen, and it shows through in her recipes.
Morocco has been a destination on my wish list ever since I started to stalk the magnificent riads on the Essaouira coast. Essaouira has always intrigued me – it’s a late-18th-century fortified town, constructed according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture. It’s a charming town that I would one day love to visit.
Paradise Island is our trend this week. Bright colors and bold prints make you thirsty for some kind of island vacation; one where the sun is hot, the ocean is clear and the atmosphere just makes you feel as free as can be.
It was an escape that ended all too soon, Wanderlust. The setting, the classes, the people – I learned so much on all levels of mind, body, and spirit. Motivated – full of love, peace, and happiness – I never wanted to leave.
But I suppose that leaving is a part of the whole experience, isn’t it? Being able to take that cultivated energy back to your everyday life is more of a challenge than building it in the festival’s nourishing environment. The challenge is sustaining even when you aren’t surrounded by the positive influences and reminders.
Beachwood Sparks is one of those bands that seems like they belong in the sixties – sweet, swirling psychedelic rock with a country twinge that should be listened to on a sunny day spent barefoot in the park. Read more »
Our videographer’s vision is unique — I think it kind of has to be if you have a flare for capturing poetry on film. She can translate thoughts and stories into an enjoyable 3-minute video and can inspire you with her interest after just a small chat.
Poppy Delevigne is known for her classic yet cool look. The English beauty knows how to look glamorous and how to create a cool and causal outfit to suit her persona. For some time now I’ve been addicted to her style and the cool attitude of her younger sister Cara Delevigne.
