Post image for what song was #1 when you were born?

another fp girl asked this the other day and a bunch of us looked it up – the results were pretty funny.  some of our songs were pink floyd’s “another brick in the wall,” “up where we belong” by joe cocker & jennifer warner and “careless whisper” by wham :)

so tell me… what was the number one song when you were born?

Post image for tunesday: angus & julia stone

i had never heard of angus & julia stone until last week, when fp jemma told me about them.  i’m so glad she did because their music is beautiful and they also happen to have a new album coming out today called down the way! angus and julia are brother and sister and their music is as light and airy as these photos of them…listening to it feels like a bike ride on a summer day or dangling your legs off the end of a pier looking out at a sparkling lake. her voice has a similar quality to joanna newsom and his is its perfect complement – very soothing and understated.  their music is simple and sweet, and a perfect soundtrack for spring and summer. their video for “mango tree” captures this essence to a t – watch:

i also love this collage from their deluxe edition album packaging that uses photos from their family albums. now listen to some of their songs below and tell me what you think!

Post image for Coachella Count Down Begins

Coachella is blowing fire into my hearty heart. Every morning when I arrive at my desk in work, I find myself subconsciously clicking onto the Coachell website just to remind myself of the days that remain. It’s now down to 18 days and I really need to start controlling myself. Otherwise I’m going to be hospitalised before I even step on the plane.

We’re  going to be heading there to do a Festival Free People Style Stalk, which is going to be amazing and hopefully be great inspiration for everyone who reads our blog, and follows us on facebook and twitter!

So, me being from England, I’m used to festivals such as Glastonbury which = Wellies, raincoats, lots of mud, and fuzzy hair. I believe Coachella is an epic contra to this. So Im taking a note out of Bleach Black’s book:

Think comfort first. It gets HOT AS  *%@#  out there…. expect to see lots of lingerie. Bring a bikini or some sort of swimwear.  I promise, at some point, you’ll end up in a pool. Headpieces  (hats/headdresses/turbans…). Plan on integrating at least one of these

My survival kit will begain with Moroccan Oil, the heat will sure make my hair go tiger wild so I need to tame it, just incase I cause some serious damage while swinging it around!

Document, document, document the Diana F and Polaroid Land will be my BFF.

Everyone needs to have a dress up outfit for a festival, so I’m thinking feather makeup and headresses –  A Noah’s Ark theme springs to mind.

Essie nail polish in every colour and some beautiful Free People items below. Now KOL “California Waiting” just got turned up!

Here’s the list of items featured above:

1. Suede Medicine Bag  2.Triple Wrap Cuff  3. Sliver Rush Bracelet  4. Retro Classic Sneakers  5. Shakuhachi Embroidered Dress 6. Floral Tiered Halter Dress 7. Merrie Patched Vintage Short 8. Cat & Mouse Romper 9. Printed Smocked Bandeau

the free people family extends far beyond the home office – the girls that work in our stores are amazing and they make shopping at the stores a special experience for everyone who walks in the door. today i’d like to introduce you to kim, from our torrance, CA store! read on to learn a little bit more about her and her personal style.

“i love delicate and light fabrics like lace, silk and chiffon.  i toughen it up by adding mixed-metal jewelry and accessories.  i am a juxtaposition of candy and lou by day and ginger by night!”

what is your theme song?

“head on” by the jesus and mary chain- this song gets me movin and groovin. (listen below!)

if you could go anywhere in the world, free of cost, where would you go?

cambodia to visit the motherland for the first time.

if you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?

laptop with internet access for unlimited entertainment, my boyfriend for companionship and a vintage, champagne colored beaded gown.

what is the one article of clothing you can’t live without?

even though i’m a fashion junkie, this is a surprisingly difficult question to answer- everything i own i can’t live without! for the sake of answering this question i will say my stuart weitzman suede ankle boots because i can wear them from dawn to dusk and still dance in them all night long.

what is your biggest fear?

dying young :(

winter, spring, summer or fall?

spring- a season of celebration, rebirth and dewy flowers.

what color are you?

violet is harmonious and splendid and my favorite color.

what is your motto?

“the world is a playground and life is pushing my swing” – natalie kocsis.

what is your favorite hobby?

if you could spend a day with anyone – dead or alive – who would it be?

my dad, who passed away when i was 8 – i’d love to spend a day as daddy’s little girl!

Post image for book club selection #2

for the next book club selection we have decided to read stephen chbosky’s the perks of being a wallflower.  we haven’t had the chance to read the book yet, and hope that if you have, you will read it again with us and perhaps you will take away something new or add to our experience.  it’s a quick read so this book club session will be short – we will take two weeks to read the book and will post things that the book inspires along the way.

and of course, if you have a suggestion for future book club selections, please let us know.

Post image for cauliflower buttermilk soup

it may seem a little odd, with all this talk of spring and warmer weather, to post a soup recipe. but this cauliflower buttermilk soup sounds so heart warmingly good i couldn’t resist…great for a chilly evening.

cauliflower buttermilk soup
1 large cauliflower, broken into florets
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 1/2 t salt
4 c water or stock
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 c parmesan cheese
large pinch of dried dill weed
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
salt & pepper

place the cauliflower, potatoes, onion and garlic into a large pot. add in water or vegetable stock and bring to a boil. lower heat and simmer (no lid needed) until vegetables are quite tender (about 30 minutes). puree with a hand blender or transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.

add in the buttermilk, parmesan, dill and mustard and stir until combined. season with salt and pepper if necessary. serve in deep bowls. this should make about 4 large servings.

Post image for alexandra in the forest

i’m in awe over this photography by alexandra valenti.  sunsoaked and infused with bohemian spirit, her images evoke summer and hikes in the woods, cooling off in hidden springs, and backyard barbecues with friends.  i want to step inside these photos and be a part of them.

check out her website here.

Post image for valley green

on the outskirts of philadelphia, past manayunk and mount airy, you’ll find the wissahickon valley of fairmount park and a hidden wonderland known as valley green. the sound of traffic and horns are replaced by birds and trickling water and its hard to believe you’re still technically in the city. this scenic little valley is one of my favorite spots to go for a day of hiking, relaxing, and escaping when i’m feeling a little drained by the hustle and bustle of living downtown. sometimes you just need to get back in touch with nature.
