Grooving and chillaxing – that’s what a summer music mix is all about and I am so not disappointed with how this month’s tape came out!
I’ve been loving some of the new artists that KCRW has had on rotation, particularly Electric Guest whose album has me completely smitten. Pair their summer hit (if it’s not already it should be) with a few new and old goodies and I am one happy girl.

Since moving to London last year I’ve hardly spent any time in a car. I don’t need to in order to get around and I love it (remember when I sold mine and opted to be car-less in LA??? I know, it’s cray cray in most people’s books).
However, as we drove around the Atlas Mountains in Morocco last weekend I thought back to how much I do love one aspect of driving – the solid time for just me and my music.
I heard this song on KCRW’s Eclectic 24 yesterday and instantly pictured myself driving on the 10 freeway during sunset, completely relaxed, one arm on the steering wheel, and nodding my head to the beat. Somehow listening to the same song through my earbuds on a crowded double decker bus doesn’t quite have the same effect.
To Berlin, that is! Has anyone been there? Got any good tips, must see/eat/do spots? First timer here so any suggestions will be much appreciated!
I’ve already earmarked the Arkonaplatz flea market – it might be the only one I’ll be able to fit in between Hello Etsy sessions but when there’s a will there’s a way ;)
Here’s to having an adventure this weekend – near, far, wherever you are. Have a great one!
This week’s three rad links…
• Easy breezy DIY calling cards via Pugly Pixel (it’s an old post but I finally got around to making these!)
• Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: Hysterical new album preview via my fave LA radio station KCRW.
• Awesome crumble city maps that are shove in the bottom of your purse-friendly via I ART U. I’ll take one of each.
