"Counting Reflections" It's no longer Monday, so I no longer want to hide under my covers and completely ignore the rays of sunlight piercing through my windows and poking at my eyelids. No way! I want to get up, get at 'em, fall into that catchy phrase "rise and grind," and get the body and brain waves moving.

I was particularly interested to see her incorporate two different styles into one: graffiti and poetry. Being a Brooklyn girl, graffiti and all other types of street art is something that I really love and connect with and being somewhat introverted as well, poetry is something I've recently turned to as a ...

The summer might be winding down to a close but that doesn't mean that the music that makes you wanna grab your bike or skateboard and cruise down your nearest boardwalk is ceasing to exist. With their dreamy pop tunes the band Veronica Falls can be compared to favorites like Best Coast. Made up of Roxanne Clifford, Patrick Doyle, James Hoare, and Marion Herbain I'm pretty sure you can find a place to put them among the other jams in your "Summer Time" playlist. ... Read More
