movie posters reimagined.

movie posters are the official sponsor of the college dorm room. animal house and dazed and confused were ever present in the syracuse dorms. movie posters are extremely conceptually thought out. the studios wouldn't spend half the movie budget on marketing and ask someone to slap a photo and a name on paper. these images are what immediately attracts the audience. you have less than a second to grab the driver on the road going 70mph.

summer sipping.

a good hostess knows how to get creative with their spread. one way to up the ante at your party is to serve specialty cocktails in mason jars. fun to serve and fun to sip.

strip me down and push me in. it's getting hot in herrrrrr. so like nelly says, i'm gonna take off all my clothes. nothing feels better in this heat than jumping in a pool. i love being in the water. i'm a summer baby, a cancer by sign, a crab by animal... so i guess it's only fitting that i enjoy being in the water. it also helps when the pool design is ever so chic.

summer scape.

all year long
we wait for the sun
at the beach
we come undone
-kid cudi

fruit is fresh, veggies are vibrant, and the alcohol is abundant. the air is hot and your skin is sun kissed. it's summer. and there's nothing like a party in this season. you've got your rooftop fiestas, your backyard bar-b-ques, and your fabulous garden galas. so let's get creative with some tablescaping because people love to eat with their eyes.

from dylan to deadmau5.

eytan and the embassy, brooklyn based band, has created a fantastic music video. dressing up as 18 different iconic musicians, they managed to accomplish such a feat in only one take. kidding, of course. it took them 30 takes to get it right. but watch the 1:57 mark where you can see him want to laugh from the nose ring removal. ouch.

i scream.

i scream, you scream, we all scream for creative ice cream concepts. it's summertime and there's nothing more refreshing than a cold scoop of ice cream on a hot and sweaty day (except an ice cold mug of beer). but until the kids leave for camp, it's chocolate and vanilla (and whatever wacky flavor they're cooking up now).

music monday summer playlist.

music is the heartbeat of my life. it completely changes my mood. i can always count on a good beat to brighten up my day. per usual, i've been addicted to certain songs and, with that, they've all been added to every one of my summer playlists.
