This week has been a whirlwind! It’s my first year living right in the heart of Musikfest, and it’s been an adventure to say the least. I’ve gotten the chance to attend a handful of shows for work, and still more to come! Last weekend, I covered The All-American Rejects and Jason DeRulo. But the highlight of my week had to be seeing The Avett Brothers last night! They’re one of my favorite bands, and they never disappoint with their live shows. (shameless self plug with the links to my review of each show…)
But even in a week jam-packed with fun, I’ve had some down time to browse around. Have a look at some of my favorite things on the web from this week!
The Emoji Have Won the Battle of Words: If you know me, you know I fluently speak emoji. This piece from the NY Times breaks down just how these little guys affect communication. When in doubt, insert monkey covering eyes face.
You’re Not An Exception: I’ve had a rough few weeks lately, dealing with some people-problems. Without getting into the details, let’s just say that these words from Maxie McCoy have served as the perfect reminder. Maxie is always full of great advice- follow her blog Ilo Inspired to stay in the loop!
- Misty Copeland for Under Armour: I love seeing some love for the dance world in mainstream media. But more often than not, we get stuck with some inept person trying to pass as a ballerina. (let’s remember that Free People commercial….) Misty Copeland’s new ad for Under Armour is different. Have a look for yourself, you’ll see what I mean.
