zooey deschanel is probably one of the few actresses who has achieved a successful career in the music industry.  she has a natural, sweet voice that could easily fool you into thinking you’re listening to an old record from the fifties – and it probably helps that she’s teamed with m. ward, who is insanely talented. i recently saw him with his other band, monsters of folk, and i kept finding myself in awe of his effortless guitar skills and smoky, hushed voice.  he and zooey make a good pair…if their music had an aura, it would be golden.

zooey is so cute too… i love her vintage style. she & him’s volume two comes out today – take a listen to some of the songs below and let me know what you think!

Post image for more SXSW photos!

the first music festival of the season has come to a close… from what our fpgirls tell me, it’s a five day marathon of hitting as many possible shows as you can and going on very little sleep – but the opportunity to see so many amazing acts, many of them up-and-coming, makes it all worth it.

our free people store in austin had an event on friday featuring bands the boo who’s, jrl and the second grace, along with treats from hey cupcake! and giveaways for customers. luckily they had a camera on hand to capture all the fun!

Post image for book club update

a little while ago i asked you all to vote on our next book club selection out of six choices that were picked from your suggestions when we first started the book club.  the winner of the vote was stephen chbosky’s “the perks of being a wallflower.” however we also received several comments from people who felt strongly that we not select that book. unfortunately we can’t make everyone happy, but before we make a decision i wanted to ask you all for your opinion one more time.

would you be interested in reading “the perks of being a wallflower?” or would you rather us choose a different book? let us know in the comments section!

Read On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan. You will not be disappointed and it will be a good discussion.

homemade granola

Post image for homemade granola

i love granola – but it has never occurred to me to try and make my own! i found this recipe on the kitchn and they raved about it, so i think i might try it.  plus granola is a great energy-boosting snack that is perfect to bring along on hikes or other outdoor activities you might be doing on a nice day like today…

ingredients:
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups raw pistachios, hulled
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
1 cup coconut chips
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots

fresh berries, for serving (optional).

directions:
1. preheat oven to 300 degrees. in a large bowl, combine oats, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, maple syrup, olive oil, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and cardamom. spread mixture on a rimmed baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown and well toasted.

2. transfer granola to a large bowl and add apricots, tossing to combine. serve with yogurt or fresh fruit, if desired.

*makes about 9 cups.

these sisters are so talented… i think it’s really interesting how similar their artistic styles are, yet they also have their differences. the colorful, nature-filled images feel appropriate with today being the first day of SPRING!

When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment. There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service? Kudos!

Ecrire plus, c'est tout que j'ai à dire. Littéralement, il semble que vous vous êtes appuyé sur la vidéo pour faire valoir votre point. Vous clairement savez ce que vous êtes parle, pourquoi déchets votre intelligence sur des vidéos juste postant sur votre blog alors que vous pourriez nous donnez quelque chose informatif à lire ?
