Is anyone else FREEEEAAAAAAKKKKKKIIINNNGGGG out that Mumford is releasing a new album in May!!?!?!?!?!? I saw them at Coachella back in of the best concerts of my life. We really wanted to go to Squamish Festival this year but we just can't swing it :(  If they go to Van or Seattle, I'm SOOO going.

So what do you think of their new single? So crazy to hear electric guitars instead of banjos but I dig it. Stoked to hear the rest.

And speaking of new music...I'd love to start listening to some new tunes! Please let me know what you're currently loving!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. I'm back to work after a couple days off...I'm very excited to get back in the swing of things but it's sure going to feel weird to wake up at 6 instead of 8 :/ !!!!!

Stay gold, 



i’ve probably already bombarded you with a text, facebook message or invite to hear my husband’s new single but if not here it is…

now do yourself a favour and purchase it for .99 on itunes

he played his first show at the you&her launch last friday and i couldn’t help but smile through every song. 

his writing is real + raw yet laced with the beauty of hope. so proud to call this incredibly talented man my hubby.

check out his website here!




as most of you know my man (@jamesliira) has been spending many, many late nights working on his music project- LIIRA.

he has poured blood, sweat and tears (ok maybe not tears) into this project and i stand behind him 100% as one proud wifey.

he launched his website yesterday and will be continually updating it (hello blog posts!) and his first show is THIS FRIDAY!! (at the you&her launch)

i’ve obviously heard every song, so i’m kind of biased BUT i believe that you will love it!! his first single will be available soon on itunes, as soon as it’s out, i’ll let you know.

but for now, check out his website and buy your tickets for friday’s show!!

stay gold,



Two blogs in one day..for reals, for reals.

I have had the great privilege of seeing my favourite bands live. The Cure, MUSE, Bloc Party, The Killers and most recently, Arcade Fire.

Ah-mazing. One of the most surprising things was how few people were lined up on Tuesday afternoon. My sister and I showed up 2 hours before the doors opened and there were probably only 40 other people. INSANE. We had floor tickets, rushed in and snagged front row. I had to pinch myself to see if it was actually real. I was a late discoverer of Arcade Fire and only actually started to devour their albums in 2009.

The show was phenomenal. Eight members literally danced themselves onto the stage. Each member plays a plethora of instruments. I know I’m preaching to the choir here, that maybe even some of you were at their show at Lucky years ago where I heard they climbed onto the roof and played on the pipes (!!!!!).

Music, lyrics, talent..everything about them is amazeballs. But one thing stood out to me…their sheer passion and joy for what they do. (Ok, two things.)

One thing that I love, love, love, love seeing is people doing what they were meant to do. I can’t really explain it, but you just know, you just know. You know in your soul and in your heart. Deep down, you get this feeling that it is right and good.

As soon as Arcade Fire took the stage the feeling came. My heart sparkled at their passion, their energy. They were beaming from ear to ear. They absolutely LOVED what they were doing. The passion was literally dripping from their faces. (I have a few videos on Facebook, you should really lurk them and have a look). I left the concert sparkling, inspired, in love, content, etc.

And then I got thinking/convicted… I want to live life with that kind of passion, that kind of joy, where others leave inspired, sparkling, content.
