Sweet Beats // August 2014

aug_playlist copy{image via}

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been a bit of a stress-case these days. Maybe it’s my end-of-summer melancholia? Whatever the reason, soothing folk/indie kind of music just has a way of easing my nerves and bringing me back to reality. Few things make me happier than a long walk in late summer with warm sounds ringing in my ears.

Hope you all find this month’s playlist equally tension relieving.

We Heart Braids

We’re pretty much braid people year-round, but something about the end of summer/yearning for fall amplifies our love of braids. Reg knows her way around a crown braid, and one of these days we’ll do a tutorial, but today we’ll just admire other people’s hair genius.

Happy Weekend!

So, it’s August? Where did that come from? This month has been known to bring us a bit of sorrow in the past, as we suddenly realize that summer is already halfway through. But yuh know what? We say no. No to sulking, and yes to rejoicing. Have yourself a little (or a lot) of ice cream, and embrace these warm nights while we can… #liveitupbaby
