Music Spotlight: Band of Horses

Band of Horses, originally briefly known as Horses, is an American rock band formed in 2004 in Seattle by Ben Bridwell. They have released three studio albums, the most recent and most successful of which is 2010's Grammy nominated Infinite Arms.

It may come as no surprise to people who read my Tumblr blog that I adore Band of Horses. The thing I regret though is that I didn't start getting into them until last year - oh the years that I missed out on and anticipation of their next albums.

Nevermind, I love them now, that's all that matters.

Their albums are:

Everything All The Time (2006)


Cease to Begin (2007)

Infinite Arms (2010)
Last July I was lucky enough to see their Splendour in the Grass sideshow at Enmore Theatre. I was completely blown away by Ben, his vocals are wonderful - he looks completely different to what you'd think he would, covered in tattoos and has a beard with this gorgeous voice, it's just wonderful.

Their albums are all available on iTunes and Amazon so I suggest you check them out if you haven't already.

My favourite songs are:
No One's Gonna Love You (Cease to Begin), Dilly (Infinite Arms) and The Funeral (Everything All the Time). BLISS!

FASHION SPOTLIGHT: Marimekko for Converse

Oh my lordy!

I was just flipping through my newest copy of Frankie and saw an ad for these new Converse shoes with designs by Marimekko. As you should know I adore Marimekko and have even done a post about them on my blog (a few weeks back) so I was delighted to see these on the page.

Here are some teasers!

I must get myself a pair (on my unemployed + uni student budget it will be difficult but I will prevail)

Hello Sandwich!

Today I received my long awaited Hello Sandwich Gift Wrapping Zine in the mail.

It is the cutest thing I ever did see, I'm saving it to read in bed tonight but the packaging it came in was so cute and even had some Japanese masking tape to seal it all up - delightful!

Hello Sandwich is a blog run by Ebony Bizys an Australian girl who lives in Tokyo. Her blog is absolutely gorgeous, inspiring and fun and her care to detail is wonderful.

She has inspired me to collect more paper scraps (like I need any more!) and do even cuter things with them.

 I can't wait to make a confetti bow of my own...
