Drumroll, Please!

Oooh... I am so excited to tell you all the winner of my very first giveaway!
The winner is..... badabadabadabada (sad attempt at a drumroll)

Congrats girly! I think the earrings go well with your funky-cool style, and I can't wait to see how you style them! :)

Now, I would like to introduce my new feature --->
"What I'm Listening To Tuesdays"
Here's how it'll work:
I will pick one band/singer every week and 1.)describe them in a few sentences, 2.) list my top 3 picks of their songs, and 3.) hopefully post some pictures of them if possible. Sound good? I think yes! ;)
For my first "What I'm Listening To," we have Florence + The Machine
1.)Florence Welch and her various backing musicians have a sort of rock/soul sound. You've probably heard her song "Dog Days Are Over" in the movie (or ads for) Eat, Pray, Love. She is working on the follow up album to her first album, Lungs. I totally love her voice and flaming red hair!
2.) My picks for songs:
a.) "Addicted to Love"- amazing remake of the Robert Palmer song! First I heard of her, and made me immediately Google her! ;)
b.) "Kiss With a Fist"- fun, fast song that makes you want to jump and down and do karate kicks!
c.) "Dog Days Are Over"- probably her most popular song, but it's popular for a reason!
3.) Pictures!
Can you think of any bands/singers I should consider for What I'm Listening To Tuesdays?


  1. I love Florence & the Machine!!Their song "You've Got the Love" was used at the end of one of my plays last year :)

  3. SRSLY BLOGGER how dare you not post my last comment!~ ahhh. But yayyyy, I am so excited for the lovely earrings! So perfect for Halloween (and every other day of the year!) :DD<3

    I love Florence and the Machine, especially You've Got the Love. Ever heard of Yeasayer? They're kinda in the same category as them methinks. :DD

  4. Congrats to Ali! And what a cool feature, I always love to hear about bands/musicians that are new to me! And the picture of you with the headphones is AWESOME!! Ooh, I just recently discovered Gogol Bordello, I love their song Start Wearing Purple too! :)

  5. I love her voice and red hair too! My favourite is rabbit heart, I think. Might go listen to it now.

    I wanted those earrings..... ;X

  6. GREAT songs.. & congrats to the winner! :)
    cuteee post, AS ALWAYS :)



  7. Congrats to the winner! I don't think I've heard this band before, but of course I've heard OF them! I've been listening to older stuff lately, so I don't really have any great suggestions...can't wait to see what you come up with, though! Great idea.

  8. Ali sure is pretty, great at drawing, and knows how to dress awesomely :)

    Lovely pictures!

    Donuts rolling around,

  9. Definitely consider the band Alphabeat. I've been doting on them non stop for awhile now, and still can't get enough of them. Their latest CD has almost a musical vibe too it- way good!



  10. Florence and the Machine is soooo good! Love her!


I'll try my darnedest to get back to anyone who is kind enough to leave me a message:). Just leave me a way to get back to you (email or blog link)! Thanks!!!
