The Pajama Game

So the reason for my serious lack of posts is because I have a lead in a musical called "The Pajama Game". Rehearsals ran until 8 and I had them on the weekends too. But finally all our hard work has paid off! We had our show Thursday, Friday, and tonight. It's so much fun, but very exhausting! Anyways above is our T-shirt and program design that I drew and below is how it looked on the shirts.

The play was an old Dorris Day movie and has been on Broadway. You might of heard that song before called "Steam Heat"? It takes place in the 50's, so of course the costumes are awesome lol! I usually don't like my costumes in plays, but I'm in love with all of them in this play- shirt dresses, full skirts, pencil skirts, a Mrs. cleaver hair do, etc. so this week's playlist has a sort of 50's sound to it:

1. Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me - The Pipettes
2. My Boyfriends Back - The Raveonettes
3. Sisters - The Puppini Sisters
4. You Make Me Feel So Young - Frank Sinatra
5. I Love How You Love Me - Camera Obscura
6. Pennies From Heaven - Louis Prima
7. Old Cape Cod - Patti Page
8. Tea For Two - Pink Martini
9. Happy Feet - Shall We Dance Soundtrack
10. You Belong To Me - Tori Amos

**starting Monday I'll finally be posting more than once a week - I'm excited!

Fairy Ring

Spring is a day away and the weather is actually starting to warm up, with including the inevitable April showers. I loved these photos from the March issue of NYLON. Absolutely breathtaking and I think really capture the essence of spring: dewy, flowery, and fairy-like. Oh how I wish I could go put on a pair of wings, a summer dress, and go sprinkle fairy dust all over the yard hehe :)

Of course the week's playlist with songs that give off that feeling of springtime:

1. Birds - Kate Nash
2. I'll Be Your Man - The Elected
3. Tiergarden - Rufus Wainwright
4. Marry Me - St. Vincent
5. Breakable - Ingrid Michaelson
6. Fidelity - Regina Spektor
7. No Poem - Inara George
8. Are We Different - Priscilla Ahn
9. Jack and Jill - Katie Herzig
10. Love the World You Find - The Flaming Lips

La Femme Chocolat

We watched this video last week in French class and I immediately went home and downloaded it off itunes. It's by Olivia Ruiz and is such a fun song and video, girls can definitley relate to this for its about our love/hate relationship with chocolate :)
