a bit of distraction

Reporting from a beautifully gloomy Tuesday.

Hello, Fall!

I am pleased to report that my culinary adventure of last week was successful! I forced my boyfriend, a man who swears by meat, to try it and have officially made him a quinoa fan!  It was a great, healthy meal and I am one step closer to recruiting a new vegetarian…or so I like to think.

This week, I am re-obsessing over a post by my favorite YouTube blog, La Blogotheque.  It is a music blog that takes some amazing artists to random locations and films them performing in crazy acoustic environments.

It is amazing.

My favorite part about the blog is the organic, bohemian feel.  Artists are taken out of their usual environment and play in the streets or in caves or under bridges- it is really an expression of beautiful music and talent fused with a reminder of how stunning our world can be.

One of my favorite live bands, Local Natives, made a video with La Blogotheque that still covers my body with goosebumps, even after several hundred views. I re-discovered the video this week after one of my friends shared it on Facebook and fell in love all over again.

I hope you enjoy and that it might distract you from whatever stresses are ailing you, even if only for a few minutes.

Until next week! xx
