Pop of Culture #4

With the first month of January coming to an end, I figured I better wrap up my month in pop culture. Most shows are back from their winter breaks so it's really nice to be able to watch shows again. I am, however, desperately seeking shows to power through. Got a suggestion? Let me know!

Listening to:
The Sidekick's -- Runners in the Nerved World
This is absolutely a record you should be listening to. The Sidekicks are a perfect example of a band that has been able to evolve gracefully over time. They're from Cleveland and they recently signed to Epitaph which is pretty cool. There isn't a song on this record that I'm not in love with. It's the perfect balance of indie anthems, strong lyrics, and chill jams.

Red, red, red

My mom got me this dress for my birthday which is in August. August isn't exactly the best month for a REALLY heavy 3/4 sleeve dress. Thankfully, she knew Winter would happen. This is the most comfortable, coziest dress of all time. I want to sleep in it. Speaking of winter attire, I recently attempted to buy a pair of fleece lined tights. But I wasn't paying attention and got leggings. I almost returned them, but then I got these amazing fleece lined socks from Kushy Foot. With this combination, I am basically wearing pajamas. This is how you do it, guys.

Winter has me feelin' pretty boring. I tend to spend my evenings reading books, guzzlin' coffee, avoiding showers (and people), watching too much television, and being very chill. I'm excited for days of more light and temperatures higher than 40, ya' know? It's hard to stay active and outgoing when you live in the Midwest. Hence all the black.

A Winter Mix

Making mixtapes used to be one of my favorite things to do. I would make them seasonally, for a birthday, a road trip, or just because. Thanks to modern technology, I stopped making mixes. I don't have a computer that burns discs or an interest in using CD's. But that doesn't mean my love has ever wavered. I feel as if Winter is always the season that deserves a solid mix the most. So, here are some songs that are keepin' me warm right now.

Oh deer

This might be one of my favorite outfits if only because I spotted this skirt at the start of summer and I wanted it, badly. But I just don't have it in me to drop $68 on anything. Fast forward to a week before Christmas when my sister found the skirt (again!), but for the steep price of $5.99. I was elated. I went with all black everything because sometimes my inner teenage goth really appreciates some attention and it makes me taller.

We had a late family Christmas this weekend (my mom + step-dad live out of town). It was so nice! My step-sister is a wonderful host and baker. I got some really nice makeup brushes and really AMAZING mascara. Any time I get makeup and free food, I'm a happy person.
