Crossing Over

So I know I have been pretty MIA, however I'm hoping this will be the start of a very long and successful return. I recently had the opportunity to fly over to London for Spring Break, and it was a trip that got me really excited to come back to the blog.


There is something about getting away from everything you know... It breaks away the creative blocks that were preventing you from doing what you love. This trip definitely centered me in that way. But enough about that, back to what you actually want to read about. London was amazing. Architecture and design was the city's bread and butter.


I think the best part of my time wasn't people watching (which is rare), but experiencing the Tate Modern. The picture below shows me standing in front of my favorite work there. I'm having a hard time writing this post because I still can't put the trip into words, but I do have three tips for you when you head to London.

1. Bike all around the city. The Barclays bike share system costs 2pounds so there are no excuses.

2. Designate an entire day to museum hopping instead of pub hopping... it's better for your liver.

3. When it comes to eating and going out, skip the tourist areas and learn where real Brits go.


Back From The Theatre

There are a few things that I love in this world, jazz and great films are a couple of them. This past weekend, they came together in a beautiful way when I went to see Whiplash! If you haven't rushed to the theatre to see this... I honestly don't know what you are doing. Here is a little motivation that should get your blood pumping to see this exhilarating film.
