On Vlogging and Fleur

By total accident, I have discovered the British beauty "vlogger" Fleur de Force. Is she incredible? She's...addicting! It's weird; I swear on any grave that matters I NEVER watch vlogs. Really. But this girl and her dog sidekick (Woof) have sucked me in. Apparently, she is celebrating "Vlogust." Which mean she vlogs errday. That is some tenacity/willpower, right there.

I don't blog everyday... or do I?

Now I have made several vlogs and most of them- save in cases where Liz does the thing where she posts things of me online I'm not entirely comfortable with (haha)- have not seen the light of day. Granted though, I did go on a diatribe about my closet in one...some things are for the best!

Mostly though- Fleur's stuff (she's really likable, too, which doesn't hurt her cause!) is useful because she has beauty tips and whatnot. But I'm really curious as to how/why someone is willing to put their self totally out there- via vlog- and be kind of well-exposed to the general public. And we all know the internet is a hostile playground. Would you vlog on a regular basis? I don't think I could; I'm way too sensitive.

All things (and possible psychological motives aside) she runs one hell of a charming vlog. Check one video out:

I should get an accent.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
