Musical Madness: MAMMA MIA!
Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email Does Your Mother Know: A Candid Discussion with Sassy Mama Donna As an 80’s baby, I subconsciously became an ABBA fan long before I could comprehend an acronym, or the impact Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid would have on Pop music.

Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email New Seattleites here to make essensuals London synonymous with affordable luxury “Hair follows fashion and Seattle is a fashionable city,” say the owners of essensuals London, Capitol Hill’s newest boutique hair salon. “Seattle’s massive music scene is a major contributor to Seattle’s fashion. I think people from Seattle aren’t moving to New York or LA anymore to focus on fashion – instead, they are choosing to stay in Seattle and make their home town cool.” These were just some motivating factors that led the Townsend brothers to relocate from San Diego to Seattle and open essensuals London.

Kona Kai Resort San Diego
Winter Wanderlust: Stay Sunny, San Diego
Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email Kona Kai Resort & Marina Kona Kai Resort & Marina is nestled on Shelter Island in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego. The drive on/off island is just over a mile long and only a few hundred feet wide. Kona Kai Resort lives up to its name—it is a resort, a destination in itself. Though a downtown jaunt is only a short drive where you can wonder around the popular Gaslamp District, it’s easy to spend your entire trip without leaving Shelter Island’s shores. Kona Kai is exquisitely manicured with views of the bay on one side and the marina on the other. Since the island is narrow, rooms on either side of the resort boast great views. All the rooms are comfortable, though not exceptionally spacious. You may want to (more…)

Music Madness: Ben Howard
Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email Howard Finds Himself in I Forget Where We Were Who: Ben Howard established himself as a prominent UK folk artist with the release of his first album Every Kingdom back in 2011, a beautiful reflection of positivity,  and collection of catchy love lyrics sure to appeal to audiences everywhere. Each song on the album felt as if you were sharing a personal moment with the artist, yet just when you thought he might dive deep and reveal something bigger, he ended the trance and brought you back up with his cute hums, whistles, and winks. The album was a quintessential catch 22; I loved everything about it, the transition from Old Pine, to Everything and what (more…)
