friday favorites: june 11

WATCH IT: video I peeped this week that you should too
Civil Twilight, one of my fave bands, has released this new video for their single "Letters from the Sky". It's a really beautiful song! (I have an interview with Rich, their drummer, posting on Monday!)

HEAR IT: songs I downloaded this week
Twilight Eclipse Soundtrack! (Yes, I'm an admitted Twilight fan... Team Jacob! ahem...moving on...) This soundtrack has a lot of original songs from heavy hitters. I really love Ours by The Bravery, My Love by Sia and Heavy in Your Arms by Florence + the Machine.

FOLLOW IT: blogs I discovered this week
Sogni e Sorrisi is a fab mashup of fashion, design, inspiration, entertainment, and anything else that Connie decides to write about. I love fun blogs with pretty pictures and hers certainly fits the bill.

Habitually Chic is part interior design, part fashion design, and Heather pulls it off beautifully. Looking at photos of fabulous homes always gives me fun ideas for new apartment deco. And who doesn't love fashion?

DO IT: things to add to your calendar this week
The Big Apple BBQ is this weekend! Tomorrow and Sunday in Madison Sq Park from 11a-6p. Admission is free, BBQ is $8 per plate from 18 of the country's top pitmasters. There are also desserts, drinks, and live music!

Come back Monday to read my interview with Rich from Civil Twilight! Then come to  Union Hall in Brooklyn for their show Monday night. Tickets are $10, you can get them online here. They put on an awesome show- this will be my 3rd time seeing them live. I've written other posts about CT that you can read here and here.
