My July Playlist

It seems like a lot of you enjoyed my last playlist, so I’ve decided to do another!

You all know how much music speaks to me, so I think it’s really fun to share my monthly music faves with you, it’s like “back in the day” when you would be listening to a really great song, then would pop out one of your headphones and hand it to your friend, insisting that they listen.

La La Land Live!

`February 14th, 2018 was Kolani and I’s second Valentine’s Day together. This year, he surprised me with tickets to the Seattle Symphony to see La La Land live at Benaroya Hall! I was so beyond excited, La La Land is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I couldn’t wait to go to the symphony.

Neither of us had been to Benaroya Hall before, and I was blown away as soon as we walked inside. They have a restaurant, a coffee shop, and a gift shop before you enter the actual music hall. The symphony is so visually stunning, I couldn’t stop staring at the architecture.

On the way into the hall, we walked past an open garage door and overheard some musicians rehearsing. We peered around the corner and learned that they were warming up for the La La Land concert! We got a quick little picture with them, and it’s honestly one of my favorite photos of us now.

We had AMAZING seats, I couldn’t have been happier with how everything panned out. The staff was friendly and there was a restroom and a bar on our tier level too! Another awesome bonus is that you could pre-order drinks for intermission-order them before the show, and they’ll be ready for you to enjoy at intermission, you won’t need to spend those 20 short minutes waiting in line for refreshments!

We had such a wonderful time, it was such a treat to watch the movie in such an incredible place, and hearing the music live was beautiful beyond words. The music in La La Land is indescribable and perhaps underrated.

I can’t wait to go back and see another show soon, we had such a lovely, magical Valentine’s Day.

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

Chloe.

Bragi The Headphone Review

IMG_2116

For today’s post, I’m going to be reviewing my Bragi wireless headphones.

I got these headphones from Kolani as a Christmas present, so I’ve had these babies for nearly a month now, in which time I’ve gotten plenty of use out of them.

I had mentioned to Kolani how I was thinking about getting wireless headphones for a number of reasons. One of the most relatable reasons is because standard earphones almost always get tangled, (looking at you, Apple).

Although I had brought it up, I had never seriously looked into wireless headphones. Obviously Kolani looked into them for me and gifted me The Headphone, by Bragi.

In the beginning it was a little rough-the headphones kept falling out of my ears, constantly shifting. Included in the box were FitTips- Comply tips to be added onto the headphones, making them a perfect fit and far more comfortable.

Once adjusted, I was much more pleased with them. They fit in great and provided wonderful quality sound. Adjusting the settings, they can also be impressively noise cancelling. I often opt for the noise cancelling option, to block out the noise of the world and focus on my workout, writing, or whatever else I’m up to.

The battery life can last up to 6 hours. The headphones can be stored in a case that doubles as a charging port. Just slide the headphones into the magnetic case and plug the USB port into the wall to charge. The case also has a lanyard attached so you can wear the case around your neck while you have the headphones in. The case is fairly tiny, only about the length of an index finger and not too much wider.

Shortly afterwards, Kolani went out and bought himself a pair. He uses them for the majority of his shift while he’s working-and he works in construction so if that’s any consolation to their durability, I’d say they’re pretty reliable.

We bought ours at Brookstone, but you can also purchase yours here.

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

YOU GUYS.

It’s finally the weekend I’m seeing these amazing guys in concert!

I am so excited to see Thirdstory, I’ve been listening to their EP and their covers all week.

One of my favorites is G Train.

I took choir in high school so I have a weakness for a Capella.

Nonetheless, this trio is unbelievably talented. Their harmonies are incredible.

I’ll be doing a vlog/story time about their concert this weekend so stay tuned!

Listen to their song G Train here.

Until next time,

Saturday Chat

For this Saturday Chat I want to talk about anxiety.

I know for some people, they don’t think it’s  legitimate.

For others, it’s incredibly real, as they suffer from anxiety.

Let me just say this.

Even if you experience these things or not, stop judging people.

Just because you haven’t personally experienced certain feelings does not mean in any way that they do not exist. What could be hard for one person could be easy for the someone else.

No matter what the situation is, just be a nice human being.

Be a good friend, be there for people. Half of the time, we all just want a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen. Be that person. It might not seem like you’re doing that much, but you’re saving someone in the way they need to be saved.

I posted another cover on YouTube dedicated to the people who suffer from anxiety. I present to you Mad World by Gary Jules, you can watch it here.

Make a difference.

Until next time,

Chloe

Closer by The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey

THIS HAS BEEN MY JAM ALL WEEK.

I absolutely love it, I listen to it at the gym, when I’m driving to or from work.

I love that it tells a little story about young love; I feel like one of the biggest problems with music nowadays is that none of these songs tell a story like they used to back in the day.

AND.

I just got a tattoo on my shoulder so whenever that line comes up, “bite that tattoo on your shoulder,” I feel like it’s a personal shout out to me, even thought it’s not at all.

I hope you all had a wonderful Monday.

Until next time,

Home Alone by Ansel Elgort

In case you needed yet another reason to swoon over Ansel Elgort, I give you his latest single, Home Alone. This dance track is great for when you need to get work done, or if you just need to bust a move. I listen to it when I’m getting ready for the day, when I’m driving around town, or when I’m finally at the end of a shift.

Yes, the beat itself is very catchy, but what really draws me to this track is Elgort’s silky smooth vocals. You’re not just listening to another auto tuned robot, his voice is seriously beautiful. The song was released not even a week ago and is already topping the charts.

Besides being adorably charming, Elgort is best known for his roles in The Fault in Our Stores and The Divergent Series.

Keep on making music man, cause we’re loving it!

You can listen to his song here.

Until next time,

City of Stars by Ryan Gosling

So this movie La La Land isn’t coming out until December, but I’m already excited for this movie. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are a dynamic duo, and I will gladly go see any movie they star in together.

However, to hold me over until this movie is finally released, is the song that was featured in the trailer. If you didn’t know, Ryan Gosling is the lead singer of his band, Dead Man’s Bones. Just like his looks, his voice is heavenly.

I was wandering around parks aimlessly today with this tune in my ears. What a wonderful song to hear while getting lost in the trees.

You can listen to the song and view the trailer by clicking here.

Until next time,

You Don’t Own Me by Grace feat. G-eazy

I’ve recently covered this on my blog, but it needs more recognition. Originally recorded by Lesley Gore, G-easy has done it again, revamping a classic to appeal to a modern generation.

I don’t normally listen to rap, but I will for G-Eazy. His work has much more depth and meaning then others. He’s an extremely talented man with the world at his fingertips, I can’t wait to see what else he has in store.

Grace’s vocals are so flawless and strong, it’s very uplifting.

I did a little cover of this on my Instagram iamfashioncoco so you should head over and check it out if you haven’t already. 

Until next time,
