welcome

to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, traveler, artist, and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched back in 2010, as Bourbon and Goose, Marissa's blog serves to be an inspiration for those times we’re stuck in a rut and help expand our community to dive deeper beyond the eye candy and more into the soul all while discovering self-worth, love, being present in the moment and creating the life you were meant to live.

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)
