Jams of the Week 3/17/17

Hola and welcome to jams of the week. 
It's St. Patrick's day today but I am so so sick the idea of eating corned beef or drinking a beer makes me gag. I've lost my voice and every part of my head feels like someones trying to break it apart. I tried to steam some sickness out in the shower and I slipped and fell...so that's how my days been...

anyways, I have as much energy as I've had in three days and I've slept too much to sleep right now so I figured I'd share my jams of the week




Recently recommended by my pal Chloe is the show Riverdale. So far so good, and the soundtrack is also awesome. Check it out on Spotify if you're so inclined. This track was on here and I forgot how much I love Santigold. 


Santigold - Can't Get Enough Of Myself







****






The convo at the beginning of this song makes me listen to it on repeat and now I say to everyone
"Look around bro, look at life!"

KYLE - iSpy (feat. Lil Yachty)     aka LIL BOAT! 

"You're damn right I'm right, I can't remember a time I was god-damn wrong"
this video tho...





****






OK, so I'm pretty obsessed with this song / it's message. Michelle Obama would be proud. 


Grow Food | Appetite For Change







****





besides for the obvi Dropkick songs, this is my go to St. Patrick's Song.
Sidenote: this is the remix, but I wish it was the original because I hate hate the original which makes no sense.

Irish Celebration - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (P Smoov Remix)






till next time,

Peter Pan+Minalima


If you're a hardcore Harry Potter fan you've probably gushed over the epic designs of the movies and books done by the Minalima design company.  I literally want to buy everything they make. 





They have an super awesome store in London that is HP heaven and I can not wait to go! I knew they did HP and Fantastic Beasts but I was recently at Books & Company (aka the best book store in wiscoooo) when I saw some awesome looking shrink wrapped books. If a book is shrink wrapped I a.) need to see what it is and why it's worthy of being shrink wrapped and b.) hope someone opened one up because not knowing whats inside is driving me nuts. Lucky for me someone had opened up one and it was a super awesome copy of "Beauty and the Beast." I opened it to see these awesome pull out illustrations and designs and fell in love with the book. I looked back at the cover and saw that it was none other than Minalima that had made the book so beautiful. 

Look at these freaking designs!



Rotating clothes!




I took a ton of pictures of the inside but not the cover for some reason so here's the display window they currently have in London via their insta






After I found out they had done Beauty & the Beast I googled and found out that they had also done a version of Peter Pan! I had Books & Co order me one right away and it was the best decision everrrrr.
Look at this book, it so beautiful
and shrink wrapped extra fun



So so pretty

I would love this print as fabric


Second to the right and then straight on till morning!





Spotted! Twinkling lights! and canine commotion! 

. So many fun details that enhance your reading! I love Peter Pan and this makes me so happy. They also have the Jungle Book out but I haven't seen it at any stores. I hope they continue to do more books outside the Harry Potter realm because these are so well done. Next time you're at your local book store look for these and buy yourself a copy!

Now I'm going to spend the rest of this snow day curled up with this beautiful book =)

till next time,
Maggie

Jams of the Week 3/11/17




Howdy and welcome to jams of the week

So I started off the week with "Dan Bilzerian" by T-Pain being stuck in my head for two days straight and then I googled that crazy mofo and was amazed and then grossed out, and then I saw a picture of him eating lunch with Trump so the song left my head like ASAP. Slightly sad because T-Pain uses fisticuffs pretty well in it...A+ for that T-Pain. So that was going to be one of my songs of the week but now I feel like I can't do that. It'd be like recommending a Chris Brown song...I can't do it

SO here are three other songs fer ya enjoyment. 



"False Alarm" I thought was Adele for a hot second but it's not. Love her Becky Hill's voice and the song.


Matoma & Becky Hill - False Alarm







****





This song makes me wanna dance.

COIN - Talk Too Much






****







Because I am so tired of life right now, and listening to this gives me energy.


MISSIO - Middle Fingers
