to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Sunday Playlist: 80s Teen Movie + Music Videos by Bat for Lashes + Rush Midnight

Since you can't get your music videos on MTV anymore (so stupid), I'm supplying you with some that made our hit list this week (of course we had to include Bat for Lashes) and an 80s playlist that I happened to stumble upon that's f–ing awesome. (Thx Gala!) What Sam loves most about these 2 videos...the both involve bikes. He does have some editor notes to add to these videos (like the guy on the right that's out of sync) but that's another topic for another day. Bat for Lashes: What's a Girl To Do

Rush Midnight: Don't Give Me Your Love
