Media Monday: Adam and Dog

I am lucky to have some very talented friends.

This Sunday, my good friend Minkyu Lee said that his animated short is almost ready for a friends-and-family viewing. I couldn't be more excited! It's going to be absolutely beautiful.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's nominated for an Oscar this coming season.

I'm not kidding, people. He's that good. He already beat out Disney (where he works as a character developer), Pixar, Dreamworks, etc. to win an Annie award for Best Animated Short Subject.

Watch the trailer! It's so dreamy. It'll get your inspiration juices flowing for sure!

Go Minkyu, Go!!!

Media Monday: Kimbra

Maybe I'm stuck in 2000 (anyone else remember when the Bye Bye Bye video first came out? My sister and I were glued to the tv for weeks), but I still LOVE a good music video.

Enter Kimbra. I love this song. This is my go-to music video to watch when I'm having a bad day.

It just makes me feel better.

Media Monday - Samsara

Oh dear me, what a beautiful film.

This is the trailer for Samsara, from the makers of Baraka. 

It's a silent documentary, if you must put it into a genre, but the filmmakers described it as "guided meditation" during the Q&A after the screening. (I was lucky enough to attend a screening at the Cinerama Dome with Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson)

The images are stunning. It's a profound film, exploring birth, death, and rebirth.

It made me think and feel, which is the mark of any great film.

See it if you get a chance, why don't you! I'd love to know how you like it.

Fall Wardrobe

I have fall on the brain!

I'm a little obsessed with fall clothing right now.

I love that it's cozy, and effortless.

I'm dying over the fall collection from Closed.

I mean, really. Look at this.

Please, can I have these outfits.

I would wear them with my new Michael Kors lookalike rose gold watch

(It's actually from Target.)

and the new pieces from my Etsy shop.
