WATCH THIS: Jamel and Strome do a bit about Alors on Dance

This video features Jamel, known to me for being the lovable grocery delivery man in Amélie, and Strome, the man behind my French summer jam "Alors on Danse", do a bit where Jamel helps Strome write the song. It's simply amazing and further informs the crushing fact that I need to date a French guy at some point in my life to feel fulfilled.

Insomnia Chores

I don't really have insomnia. A more accurate word is "unable to wind-down"-ness. I love sleeping and would pick a nap over a beer any day but at the end of the day I have a helluva time trying to sleep. Knowing that, I decided to do my laundry tonight while I waited to feel sleepy (I almost do as I type this in my bed). Anyway, feels good to have done something with this otherwise cruel joke of a bad habit.

What do you do to wind down?

So Taylor Swift has a new album out and all my favorite ladies are loving her. I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of hers but damn does she love a good curly hair look. My classmate Sarah and I tried this out one night and here are the results.

Check it out after the jump!

FRIDAY NIGHT FOOD FIGHT: Eating Right Cup Soups

There is no recipe here. This is just a salad with a cup soup. Specifically the Split Pea Soup from Eating Right (Safeway's generic, health conscious in-house brand). But hot damn, are they good. My favorite two are this on featured and the Black Bean Soup.

Happy Thanksgiving Lovers!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and those of you with Monday off spend it recovering from last night's turkey binge. Check back later in the week for all sorts of fun stuff. Spoiler alert: I'm gonna talk to boys who spend a lot of time with girls. It might get interesting...

HEAR AND SEE THIS: Violin Cover of Boyfriend

Saw this over on Jezebel this morning. His name is Seth G. and he also has a wonderful version of "Thinkin' Bout You" by Frank Ocean but here is the first video of his I've seen, a cover of Beebs' "Boyfriend".


So, did you like it? Let me know in the comments!

WATCH THIS: Let's Have A Kiki by Scissor Sisters

My friend Jameson sent this to me last night and changed everything. While I barely understand what the hell a "kiki" is, I do know that I want to have one. If it means retro ponytails, men playing tambourines and raincoat dresses, I'm in. So no matter what shit life is throwing at you lately (hey Calgary, heard about the snow...sorry dudes) hit play on this gem and my hope is that it'll lift your spirits the same way it did for me heir soir.


Your girl,
N.

WATCH THIS: Weirdo by Donald Glover

Donald Glover is many things. He's Troy Barnes. He's Childish Gambino. He's a former writer on 30 Rock. He's an NYU graduate. He's amazing. And funny. Want proof? Here's his 2011 Comedy Central special. Enjoy.
