Music Mondays: Paramore "Fake Happy"

Whaaat, new music, new post, whaaaat??? I know. I almost have no right to even start sharing again after so long away from this blog, but you know? I FELT INSPIRED. Some songs just kinda click with your inner-being, particularly those moments when you're stressed and flying down an L.A. freeway alone and just scream-singing at the top of your lungs..... *inhale*slow exhale*

And this one's good. Belt-it-out-your-car-window good. My beloved Paramore finally released a new album for the first time in over 4 years, and I couldn't be more stoked about it. After Laughter isn't the romp their self-titled (2013) album was, but it's the self-proclaimed 'IDGAF/Don't ask me to smile' attitude laced throughout the whole record that the whole world needs right now. And "Fake Happy" is a teary ballad masquerading as a poppy rocker.

Have a listen, and while you're at it, check out it's equally middle-finger-to-the-haters sister track, Rose-Colored Boy, while you're at it. Consider it your Monday morning therapy. xx

engagement: the story

It's probably been a year or more since I wrote about more personal happenings on this space, instead choosing to focus on cinematic musings. But this chica's life has experienced a sudden dose of excitement, and I can't resist posting a bit about it here, perhaps planting the seeds for like-sharing in the future. Especially with what this new year will hold.

Nearly three months ago, in front of my closest friends and family, my boyfriend John became my fiancee. And made me the happiest woman in the world.

Yes, this is the story of that proposal.
