Now Hear This…Lorde

lorde- royals

While my best friend in LA can consistently be the supplier of bad ideas, occasionally she has a brilliant one.  Think like, needle/haystack or diamond/rough example.

And this is one of her best, she sent me the link to this yesterday and I’ve been listening to it on repeat.

Click here to hear Lorde’s cover of ‘Use Somebody’ by Kings of Leon.  Better than the original…

Learning the Paris Metro…

I quasi-planned and mapped.  And it quasi-helped.

 Planning is something I normally don’t do when I travel, and if I’m being honest, I rarely like to plan much of anything.  But considering I have a half ignored Rosetta Stone and only a college level understanding of the french language, I didn’t want to leave it all unplanned.




Seeing as I live in Texas, I don’t know much about public transportation.  As I quickly learned in Paris, I actually don’t know much about it at all.  And yes, that is a bottle of wine in my shopping bag.

So day two, after learning on day one that walking in four inch heels is not my ideal means of getting around the city, The Boyfriend and I decided to brave the metro.  It was an intense experience, but then I came across this…

Oh, just a 12 piece orchestra.  The wonders of the world that I have been missing out on.

And now I know how to use the metro…

Now Hear This…Walk Off the Earth

{Somebody I Used to Know}

A friend of mine suggested that I should download Walk Off the Earth after she heard it in a spin class.  I’ll download anything after a glass of wine but I ended up becoming quite a fan.

{Someone Like You, Adele cover}

Sometimes their youtube videos are a little hard to watch, but if you can get over the ukulele dropping, the music is great.
