Remember when riding your bike was a thing of the past? Well, say no more!
Things have changed quite a lot since you last rode your bike when you were a kid or even to just work out.

How or when do you ride your bike?

Some inspiration for upcoming seasons like Spring and Summer! What are some of the things that inspire you?
Hey friends! Elise here!! I'm sure a bunch of you saw last Friday's Shoe a Day video, but if not, check it out above! The soundtrack is AWESOME because Chantilly, one of our favorite ladies, was nice enough to let us use one of the tracks from her upcoming EP! She's insanely talented, I was really impressed with all of the tracks on the album [cause I got a sneak peek MUAHAHAHA!]. Trust me, you NEED to hear this!
Chantilly is your friendly neighborhood singer-songwriter. She's a crazy cat lady, lifestyle blogger, and happens to write the best rainy day songs you've ever cried to. A frequent performer in the NYC scene, she's been featured in the CMJ Music Marathon and L Magazine's Northside Festival.
Recently, much time and love was put into creating a magical new set of recordings with producer Saul Simon Macwilliams (Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owen Youngs), and she is trying to raise funds for it via Kickstarter. The deadline is December 21st to raise $2,000 dollars. The money will go directly towards production costs, as well as giving you access to one-of-a-kind prizes. The catch is that if she doesn't get to $2000….she doesn't get ANY of the money!

WE NEED TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!! There are 22 hours left and just $43 to go!!
Help support independent artist and lets help Chantilly's musical dreams come true!

..I am a true Christmas fanatic and lover. And why not start a little bit early by getting you excited for Christmas too!? I can't really find the fun in Thanksgiving, as I'm a vegetarian -- there's only a bread turkey I can eat..SO, with that said, I will share something I find the most fun and beautiful about Christmas -- Christsmas songs! Feel free to also recommend any other Christmas songs you love too! Always am up for adding more to my Christmas song list :).
*Click the photos to link you to the song (minus #1).
1) Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - John Lennon
This song not only makes me so sentimental about Christmas (yes and teary-eyed at some points), but it also lifts the spirit by shedding a positive light on things that make us happy during this time of year. And conveys the message of: leave the bad, and bring on the good-times.
2) Last Christmas - Wham!
This by far has been one of my favorites for such a long time -- it never gets old. Wham! does an amazing job by relating Christmas to a rocky relationship..but, it sounds so happy and sweet!
3) Baby Its Cold Outside - Glee Version
I've heard this song sung by so many artists, yet my favorite would have to be Blaine and Kurt's from Glee. Truly amazing singers, and super cute vibe going on.
4) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Frank Sinatra
This song in particular by Frank Sinatra, always reminds me of those Christmas movies when the main characters are going through a either happy sentimental time. And for some odd reason, I always think of snow when this plays.
5) The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole
Saved the best for last, this song seriously can make me feel so "happily sad" (perfect way to sum up how I feel about Christmas overall). This song, only the one sung by Nat King Cole, makes me really miss my Grandparents who are far away from me for most of the year..that is until Christmas time arrives!
I hope you lovelies had a good time reading this, and definitely let me know what kind of Christmas songs are your most favorite too!
Just recently, while traveling on BART, I randomly pressed my iPod button to hear a band who sadly hasn't had any love for a while. On the other end of my earphones was Backstreet Boys. Now, after hearing that particular amazing 90's boy band, this led me to listen to other songs of my era of youth (yeah I'm getting older and into my 20's now lol). So have fun reminiscing about the past with me if you're a 90's baby, and if you're not, well enjoy reaaally good inspiration! ;)
P.S. My boy crush from Backstreet Boys was Brian, who was yours?? ;P
Enjoy this awesome Outer Space nail tutorial! This has to be one of my faves!

As you know, we're sponsoring a weekly music series this summer at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica! The series is called BEATS + BITES, and features a different band every week, and gourmet treats to snack on while hanging out poolside. Beats+Bites is curated by KCRW's very own Garth Trinidad and is also sponsored by The Moja Moja!
A bunch of us from Blowfish went this past Wednesday to hang out and watch local band Big Moves perform some of their new songs. The night was really fun - we had a cabana reserved so we all had places to sit, and we all snacked all evening long! Here are a few snaps from the evening!
Boo yah!! :)
The totally gorgeous and awesome Sarah and Aline!
With 2 of my favorite people in the world! Karen and my boo!
