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!

Kate Nash

"An artist should be someone who's sticking it to the man," Kate Nash explains emphatically. "It's about rebellion. It's about your mom being like 'turn that down' and you slamming the door and being like 'whatever, I need this music to help me get through my emotions!'" - Kate Nash (via the Echo)

Tonight Sam and I are heading to Sonos Studio in LA to attend an intimate performance by lovely lady Kate Nash. Last night she ended her US tour at the Echoplex with Peach Kelli Pop, but will be continuing on internationally with Mexico, UK and Germany to name a few. What we love most about Kate Nash: she's direct. She doesn't have time to sugarcoat it. Get to know her by following her blog, on twitter or in this awesome article by Goner Recs via the Echo.

"You might never meet but you have this unusual, deep communication. I love that. I don't want the people who are going to be standing in the back of the gig talking. Go stand in the back of someone else's gig! I want the people who are there to be nerdy. I want the people who are there to be real." -Kate Nash (via the Echo)
