Tunesday with The Bold Type

Despite the constant intent to be open-minded in every aspect of the my life, I admit that I am human and, at times, fall short. Such was the case with The Bold Type. I am not sure if it is because I worked in the magazine industry for years and believe it is not always portrayed in entertainment accurately. Or, perhaps, it was because of my sheer skepticism that a show based off millennial best friends in NYC who work at a magazine centered around sex and fashion could be anything but a superficial attempt to reach a demographic without challenging it.   It was a happy surprise that these negative ideas about the show were completely inaccurate. I happily admit...

I Left My Heart in San Francisco

We returned to Twinseperable HQ early this morning, after an unforgettable weekend in San Francisco. Despite my tireless efforts to stick to an itinerary and cross everything off my list, the sheer magnitude of all I wanted to see, combined with the contagiously relaxed attitude of the city's inhabitants, forced me to loosen up a bit and go with the flow. We just so happeneded to be there during a heat wave which was unfortunate, as we didn't get to experience the cool SF breeze, but we tried not to let it interfere too much with our exploring. We spent two days walking around the Mission: from store to store, to boutique to coffee shop, and then repeating that again. We made sure...

Tunesday: a love letter to Deacon Frey

The Eagles have been a long-standing favorite band of mine, and last year, we lost a true rock n’ roll revolutionary with Glenn Frey’s passing. When the time came last Saturday at the Classic East festival, his son, Deacon, stepped in and swept me away. Deacon, Let me get right down to it: I wanna sleep with you in the desert night. At a time when I feel music has become spoiled by superficial nonsense, you appeared like a white knight, flanked by your experienced elders, to save the day. You knew the size of your father’s shoes when you agreed to sing with the band, and you honored him on stage- filling those shoes as if they were made for you too. You embody the...

Tunesday with Sammy Brue

Sometimes on a gloomy day like today, instead of listening to bubbly “sunny” music, I let the mood wash over and enjoy taking the opportunity to listen to a more weather-reflective kind of tune (that is not in any way a negative). As with many of our Tunesdays, I am captivated by a random song or voice- often forgetting how I ever came to hear them in the first place. Today’s is no different. Sammy Brue is a 15-year-old with a distinct sound, and loads of potential. Despite not necessarily having anything earth-shatteringly unique about his sound, he seems to have mastered it, placing him on par with many of today’s more experienced alternative-folk musicians. The first song of his I heard was...

Friday Feels

It’s taken me a while to truly process and understand this, but I’m ready for some life changes! I am now going to be very intentional about the food I eat and the effects it has on my body. I am on a mission: eat to live and not live to eat.  I feel I have been neglecting my body for years and cannot wait to share my journey with you! Get ready for some yummy recipes and any tips I gather along the way. My body has been trying to tell me things for years and I’m finally ready to listen. Xx G...

Tunesday with Seavera

Whoever was manning the Starbucks playlist at the Fort Lauderdale Airport at 6 am yesterday, was on point. I was sleepy and grumpy and both of those feelings only grew stronger when I saw the size of the Starbucks line… full of other zombies waiting for their boosts of energy. Suddenly, a sound began to captivate me, completely erasing any negative emotions I had previously held. I couldn’t quite place the voice, but the sound had an extremely familiar quality, and a calming presence in my head. It felt like Birdy meets Haim. Like Bon Iver and Regina Spektor had a love child who is somehow also related to Ed Sheeran. Thank goodness for Shazam, because now I know who that enthralling sound...

Thursday Thoughts 4:44

I understand that I have limited expertise in the matter of Rap, but I have a lot of feelings about Jay-Z’s new album, 4:44, and today’s post is my exploration of those feelings. There are several things about this album that make it a one of a kind, revolutionary release. Jay-Z is known for being particularly private, especially in respect to his home-life, her highness, Queen Beyonce, and any rumored infidelity on his part. He addresses the incident-gone-viral when Solange assaulted him, and even more surprisingly, also addresses the events surrounding it- relating to said affairs. In an uncharted move for someone in the usually macho-centric genre, the premier track, “Kill Jay Z”, is a direct assessment and ultimate vulnerable admonition of how egos can...

Last Minute Look // 4th of July

As symbolic as the American flag is, stylish it is not. Each year, the 4th of July brings out some of the worst flag inspired outfits ever, and this faux pas is so very avoidable. It IS possible to rep the red, white and blue, without looking kitschy. Below is a last minute look for any backyard bbq this weekend, and some easy no-fail rules to follow. In my opinion, white is the hardest color to wear since: a) it is expansive b) doesn't photograph well in bright sunlight. A headband, bandana or sunnies are perfect ways to get white in. Since denim screams americana, it is the perfect blue piece and likely already in your closet. Even though red doesn't look great on every skin tone, combining it with white and blue usually...

Tunesdays with Benjamin Booker

Released June 2, Benjamin Booker’s second album, Witness, packs a major punch. Embracing the idea that the personal is political, he doesn’t waste any time before analyzing his part as a citizen in the current social climate. The title track is “not a praise song; it’s a piano-pounding hymn for Black Lives Matter that has Mr. Booker singing, with furious mockery, ‘See we thought that we saw that he had a gun/Thought that it looked like he started to run.’”  NYT It is extremely evident that Booker has been influenced by punk, rock and blues. The first album he said to have purchased, at around 13, was Elephant by The White Stripes. Their unique use of instruments and non-traditional sounds- reminiscent...
