Mid Week Distraction Vol. 2

I loving having a home on this blog for all these random finds throughout my week. I may not discover cool finds every week, but this week I’m feeling inspired by a lot. Here we go..(all photos are links)

The Weepies

After about 5 years The Weepies released a new album that I can’t help but love. Speaking of love… this album seems overly special because Deb Talan battled and beat breast cancer in between this and the last album. The lyrics seem more meaningful than ever. Go Deb!


Nepal Rises

One of my very bestest friends from college, Casey Allred founded his own non profit called Effect back in 2010, since then he’s gone on to gain enough money on kickstarter to film a documentary in India to shed light on sex trafficking. In the middle of filming the Nepal earthquake struck and he put the filming on hold to go help the relief efforts in Nepal through Nepal Rises. 2 other earthquakes have hit just this week that he’s been there, one of which he caught on film in the middle of an interview. This has been on my mind a lot. Since I can’t be there with Casey, I feel it important to share that this work is happening and that there are forums we can donate to if we so desire. Since I know Casey, I know all that he dabbles in is well thought out and effective. (pun intended) Food for thought.


Tiny Desk Concerts

Been digging on these short little concerts that NPR puts on, especially because a lot of performers have to do acoustic sessions. I love that. I recently watched Jake Bugg’s set.

The Pegasus Project

Gosh this made me tear up.

I rarely post about hair products, and I don’t even know if I feel worthy of posting about this product because I’ve only used the Coconut & Hibiscus Hold and Shine spray, but im excited to try the rest in the near future.  Originally created in Sierra Leone, Africa and made with all organic ingredients. Are you sold yet? They also have beauty and baby products. OH and the best part is they smell incredible. My spray smells just like a pina colada. Not mad about that.

Looking for Adam

THE most adorable dating video a son made for his mother.
