Top Stuff: June

Art & Photography, Fashion, Loves

From an awesome primer to an awesome sci-fi-fantasy RPG YouTube series, June brought some great things into my life

and here are ten of them.

A good oversized tee is there for you when you want comfort, style, and comfort.
So much comfort.
Versatile and available at a very good price, this $15 men’s tee has become a beloved closet staple.
To see this shirt in action, make sure you stay tuned over on trf, where some exciting videos styling this shirt are coming your way!

The relaxed fit and light fabric makes these pants appropriate for summer, while the smart colours and striped detail make these pants kick ass in the summer. A perfect crossover of formal and casual, I have gotten so much use out of this pair of wrinkly pants that I almost walked past in store.
It’s grabbing and trying items that you wouldn’t normally pick up that makes shopping far more fun and worthwhile. Occasionally you’ll come across something that you really like, and the fact that it’s different from your existing wardrobe is how your style evolves and becomes more unique.

The Little Things

Life, Loves

Sometimes, we let lots of “big things” fill up so much our lives, or allow little things to inflate so big that we lose sight and become ignorant of the many little things we are ever so blessed to have. Here are the “little” things I’ve learned to appreciate the most recently, albeit they sit with many other things considered necessities to contemporary human existence and survival not-mentioned-but-still-appreciated.

Friends who can make me laugh, and who I can make laugh too.

It’s a connection not always found, a connection that’s missing when we first meet people, the reason friends are nice to be around, the reason I would occasionally rather not talk to strangers, sometimes the only reason I smile. (ooft deep).

Top 3 Playlists for Studying & Relaxing

Life, Loves

For me, working hard in the gym calls for dubstep, and working on household tasks needs some pop or electronic beats. The work of the mind, however, needs something different.
Whether I’m writing an essay, drawing the graph of a line, reading a book, or simply relaxing, here are my top three playlists to get me in the mood and in the zone:

——

vance-joy-snaggletooth-846

Artist radio: Vance Joy
On Vance Joy’s Spotify profile ☞ click (…)  ☞  start artist radio
Featuring the likes of Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men and Vance Joy himself, this “radio station” is full of indie folk vibes that sooth the soul (and make you question whether you’re listening to happy music or sad). These tunes have a bit more body and jam-factor than the next two playlists, but are still light enough to be able to focus with. (I find, for example, that Sam Smith tracks are too dynamic for studying, despite their chill factor).

Escape in Paper, Paper Towns.

Loves

“Getting you a date to prom is so hard that the hypothetical idea itself is actually used to cut diamonds”

– Quentin Jacobson, Paper Towns by John Green

School got off to a fairly hectic start this week. Coming out of my creative cave (my room) and having textbooks, friends, homework, assessments and social responsibility thrown at me has been rather overwhelming. Above all the stress, anxiety and excitement, it’s nice to settle down with a good read; and Paper Towns is the first book I’ve thoroughly enjoyed in a while.

Artist Rave: Cristina Guggeri

Art & Photography, Loves

Have you ever wondered what the inside of the Queen’s loo looks like? Cristina Guggeri has answered the question on everybody’s minds. Do world leaders poo too?

Top Stuff: December

Fashion, Loves

Some things are just better than others. I found some of those things during the month of December. From slip on shoes to DanAndPhilGames, here they are- in stop motion.

Much love & God bless,
x rochelle

(Pssst; what’s something you found to be particularly above average during the month of December? Also, did you see something you’d like to try?)

Best Songs Ever

Loves

Music is amazing just like food. Everybody has different tastebuds and I’m one picky eater when it comes to music. These are the songs that I wanted to share with you.

Some of these songs are very popular and some are so unknown that only a handful of people in the world will know it. But ALL of these songs are worth a listen because it may change your life, or not. The songs that I am absolutely in love with are in italics.
