When the holiday season rolls around, Union Square is the place to be. Arguably the most festive part of the city, downtown’s epicenter is decked out in lights, wreaths, and Christmas trees from mid-November until after New Years. With pop-up ice rinks, store-front windows filled with puppies and kittens, and tons of yummy food to be found, San Francisco is filled with holiday cheer. Continue reading
Hey guys! I know I’ve kept you guys waiting for centuries, but it’s finally here. The music video for my cover of Tov Lo’s Stay High (Habits). This wouldn’t have been possible without Mady filming and editing almost EVERYTHING. Continue reading
From his soft spoken voice to his soulful harmonizing, no words can explain the way Sam Smith has truly entranced the world. He is his generation’s Adele, and is without a doubt the new voice of soul music. His debut album, In The Lonely Hour, was released on May 26th of 2014 in the UK, a month before it graced the US. The overall reception of the album was positive and debuted at #1 on The Official Chart Update in the UK. Continue reading

The film was made in 2003 and directed by Joon-Ho Bong. Continue reading
Creating a game is like building a house –– the project requires a strong foundation to be successful. The house itself can have any appearance and be made for different purposes. But without a proper foundation, the house will not stand. Architects and contractors have the entire house planned out, but start out by setting the foundation.

It’s K-indie, not Kindle.
Miracles in December is a Christmas song by the band Exo. Unlike the usual cheerful Christmas songs, this is a ballad about regretting the past and growing from it. The three vocalists from Exo work really well together, creating beautiful harmonies. The song is also very captivating, as it builds throughout its duration and gets better as it goes on.

Taylor Swift’s album 1989 just came out on October 27, and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. Today’s cover is none other than “Blank Space,” –– both the second track and single on the album! Continue reading
Season greetings fellow internet-dwellers! I couldn’t help but notice that you must’ve stumbled upon this post because the header lured you in. These — as you can see here — are homemade cranberry scones with a lemon glaze. I love snacking on these because the scones themselves aren’t very sweet, so the lemon glaze is used to bring up the level of sweetness. Continue reading
