music monday: the civil wars

After an exciting photoshoot {Post Here} with my roommate via her blog: we had a fun filled day of shopping. Part of our shopping adventures was a nearby record store filled with a ton of music: new and old, even vinyls! ;) I went there on a mission to purchase The Civil Wars album: Barton Hollow, and I am so glad I did. I literally love every single song on that album. Period. Also, after doing some research on the band I never realized that one my favorite artists {Joy Williams} is one of the lead singers in the band. The one thing I love most about their album: Barton Hollow is that each song is so relatable {even in my own life}. I had a hard time choosing which song to share since I pretty much love them all... {ohh how all of these songs tug at my heart strings} so I decided to go with one that I feel like a lot of people can relate to at some point or another... I chose "Poison & Wine" - If you want to listen to/find out more of the The Civil Wars click {here}

I can't believe how fast this week is going {a busy one at that!}, so I am catching up with a combination post of the past two days. Today's music inspiration is "Black to White feat. Miss Palmer" by Felix Cartal. I absolutely love the beat to this song {perfect song to work out to!}. You can find out more/listen to Felix Cartal {here}.

Current obsession: mango colored hues. I adore these mango pop/spring inspired colors at Sephora. Especially these three Sephora items:

  1. Sephora + Pantone Universe: Color of the Year Eyeshadow Quad ($28)
  2. Sephora Collection: Hot Hues Skinny Brush Wrap ($38)
  3. Sephora Collection: Hot Hues Orange Bag Collection ($10-28)
