Leather and love

I wish I was this girl. Seriously. For some reason I just think she looks really cool. And incredibly bad ass. Which is definitely a plus in my book. Just wanted to share!

Eff it!

Don't Carry It All

I'm feeling very musically inspired lately. This is just an amazing song. It's Don't Carry It All by the Decemberists. It's such an uplifting song. I don't even know how else to describe it. It just makes me happy. I like songs that make me happy. In addition, the rest of their new album, The King is Dead, is also great. I'm partial as well to Rise to Me. But this is by far my favourite song off the new album. I wish I could marry this song. I know that's sort of a third-grade sentiment, but I love this song so very much. Anyway, y'all should listen to it.

This is seriously the chocolate cake of music in my opinion. Ólafur Arnalds, the musician responsible for this magic, is absolutely wonderful. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing him in concert last night, which was kind of amazing. I'm in love. For some reason, and I can't quite figure out why, his music is really comforting and pleasant and I really wish I could listen to it all the time. (I also got his autograph!)

Anyway, enough with the merciless gushing. Just wanted to share it with you.

I was browsing the interwebs when I came upon a lovely knitwear label called All knitwear. It's kind of an explosion of colour and happiness. I wish I had a large-ish sum of money so I could buy all of their stuff. Anyway, enjoy:

Winter Passing

It's finally been cold in my neck of the woods, which means I've been getting in the mood by drooling over expensive knitwear. If I were rich, I might wear this:
