The July Life Playlist

So the Life Playlist has been given a bit of a face lift. I got rid of a few different songs that I just didn't find suited me all that well at the moment and really added quite a bit of new stuff.

I finally jumped on the Halsey bandwagon back at the end of May and was immediately hooked, (plus she's such a babe). I also started listening to Catfish and the Bottlemen who absolutely blew me away. My favorite song is Sidewinder, but for some reason it's not showing up in the playlist. Against the Current have finally made an appearance as well. I kinda forgot how good they were back in the beginnings of their YouTube days, and seeing them grow has been awesome.

I also made the mistake of listening to the Maine's entire discography, so there's quite a few new appearances of theirs as well, but there's nothing wrong with that!

As always, I'd love to hear your music suggestions based on these songs!

This round is all about soft colors and twenty one pilots, but can you blame me?

Get to Know Heather Briggs

Hello Again,

So today I have yet another installment of my Influential People of the Internet series. I've actually had this interview lined up for over a month now, but I just needed to take a break for a while. I had the opportunity to work with Heather Briggs, the mastermind behind DietBlond, a fashion channel that goes much deeper than just pretty clothes. I very highly recommend checking her out if you're at all interested.

Tell us a bit about yourself! 

I'm a 21 year old fashion student who hates fashion. I make videos on the internet about that & other topics. 

How would you describe your style to someone who couldn’t see you?

Comfy punk gallery girl. Lots of distressing, tshirts, tote bags, and dark lipstick. 

What is your overall aim with your YouTube channel?

I want to offer a different point of view in a community that is already very strongly aligned in a certain way. It's easier for me to connect through video vs. writing a blog, and when I started my channel I felt like there was a lack of industry-focused fashion content on the YouTube platform. I want to be honest and genuine with my viewers about my opinions and experiences, especially when they stray from the norm. And of course I do like to share my style when I'm into what I'm wearing.

You’ve mentioned in the past that you want to be an “internet big sister” for anyone who needs it. Do you find you have a good relationship with your subscribers?

I really have such a good subscriber base, I feel like people who subscribe to me and stick with me (read: put up with me) are genuinely interested in learning more about the cultural impacts of fashion and discussing real issues. I have been overwhelmed by all the support I have gotten lately on my more "serious topic" videos, it's incredible to me when those get more likes and feedback than the fashion and styling videos that my channel was originally meant to be centered around. We have great discussions in the comments section and I truly welcome those offering constructive criticism as well as seeking advice.

As this is a series on influences, who are yours? (both personally and creatively)

Personally, like my best friends, but also the gorgeous girl with baby blue braids I saw applying mascara on the train this morning? People on the train and on the street influence and inspire me so much, I take so many notes on them. I think it's why I'm drawn to the voyeuristic imagery of filmmakers like Sofia Coppola, I love seeing people just -exist- when they don't realize how incredible they look or what they're doing is. Creatively, anyone who's doing their own thing and not giving a fuck about the response (but who succeed because of this attitude). Lots of rappers and musicians. A$AP Rocky is my #1. Sky Ferreira. Dev Hynes. Rick Owens. Shayne Oliver. The stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, even though we aren't really aesthetically aligned, she's brilliant. Petra Collins. VFiles' OG thot goth Danielle Greco. Luka Sabbat and Barbara Ferreira and all those cool internet kids. 

What advice to you have for people who want to run a fashion blog or channel?

Do you. It's literally what everyone says but it's so much easier said than done. I've thought a lot about the ways I could have been more popular and turned YouTube into a career etc., but I know I wouldn't have been able to stick with it if I had gone that route. Even now, as I'm working on putting out content I enjoy creating and sharing, I go through lulls. Go with the flow, do work when you're inspired, and don't put out anything you aren't happy with/wouldn't want to watch or read yourself. It can be so tempting when you start to get offers from companies and sponsors to sort of abandon your aesthetic or beliefs. And even when you start getting feedback from other people. But it's so much more rewarding when you keep it real and just be yourself *cheesy smile*. The right things will come.

What are you truly passionate about?

Music. That's really all I've got right now. I haven't said I have a passion for fashion since I was in 10th grade. It's a real love-hate thing there. But I realized how important music is to me the other day when I couldn't find my headphones and I literally had to go to Walgreens and buy some new ones because I would rather be late to class than make my morning commute without a soundtrack. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with that, but there it is. 
I think I'm also passionate about people. Not in the "I'm a people person!" sense but like I really root for mankind. I come off as a cynic but I really give humans a lot of credit for existing.

Any final notes?

Buy Earl Sweatshirt's new album. Don't waste time on people who ignore your texts. Never deny yourself an opportunity to eat fro-yo. Wear what you want and all that. Don't be afraid to take up space.

Just Write #1

Hello Beautiful People of the Internet.

In an effort to make my blog much more of my own personal space, I've decided to start yet another series. Yes, I know I make a lot of empty promises to create series after series, but I truly think this is something I can stick with. I'm not going to schedule time to plan these out. I'm not going to edit these at all.

I'm simply going to write.

Think of it as a constant journal between me and you; a look into my mind, if you will. Whether I want to get something off of my chest, let you know about something cool that has happened, or simply check in with you all, I think this will be a good way to do so.

If there is ever anything you'd like me to talk about, be it a simple question or a major issue, feel free to let me know.

I really want to interact with you more.

The Hiatus

Long time no see,

I apologize for my random absence over the last little bit. Please bear with me as I hit the end of the school year. When I have a spare moment, I'll be writing up a post to schedule come my return, which I'm planning for either the end of this month or the start of June.

I'm so sorry.

The April Life Playlist

And the Life Playlist returns. 

This month has seen quite a bit of change in the playlist. I did a bit of spring cleaning and took off a bunch of things I was no longer into. However, it does have two major additions. 

First off, Vinyl Theatre. I first heard these guys in March as they opened up for Magic Man and absolutely blew me away. Such a fun and upbeat sound. 

And then American Candy dropped......

The Maine have definitely hooked me with this album and now I'm really itching to buy tickets to see them later on this month. (We shall see)

Also, All Time Low's new album Future Hearts dropped yesterday and had quite a few tunes on it. Can't wait to see them in May
