When you listen to a great song and all you want to do is dance – the last thing you want to be wearing is something you can’t move in. I love adding one casual and comfy piece for a night out at a show…like an oversized t-shirt, beanie + side braid, sweatshirt, my favorite worn in jeans, or sneakers in a great color.
Need some music to get you in the dancing mood? Check out my updated 2013 playlist. It includes a fun song by Willy Moon (who also happens to be super stylish himself).
AND it just so happens I’m giving away two tickets to Willy’s show at U Street Music Hall this Friday night! Who wants to come dance with me? If you’re not convinced, watch his video:
To enter, leave a comment below with your current favorite dance song. (I’ll even add some of them to my playlist.) Bonus points for tweeting about this giveaway using #WillyMUHall.
And if you can’t wait to see if you win on Thursday, you can always purchase tickets here.

These are just a few things keeping me inspired on this cold Friday. Despite some winter blues, I’m feeling really energized recently. Good things are happening. And most of all, I’m just having a whole lot of good fun. Can a girl ask for more?
I hope you all have a great long inauguration weekend! Be sure to follow along on twitter and instagram as I wear a velvet dress (I promise it’s more glam than 80’s) to the Chef’s Ball and get up super super early for a taping of Morning Joe! Can’t wait!
Lastly, congrats to Lisa who won two tickets to the Vaccines at the 9:30 club – I’ll be in touch soon with details!

DC has some great concert venues and in the next month or so I’m really excited to go to a couple of shows. It’s one of the best things to do in the winter, right? It’s not like I can spend a Friday night soaking up the sun at jazz in the garden…might as well stay warm by singing and dancing around with a few hundred friends to some great music. And you’ll most likely find me in an outfit just like the one above. Comfy, practical, a little more bad-ass than I actually am.
I’m excited to team up with the 9:30 Club for a great giveaway for two tickets to the Vaccines show on Friday February 1st. To enter, leave a comment below sharing one of your current favorite songs. (I made a small playlist of some of the songs I have on repeat – check it out on spotify!) For an extra entry, tweet about the giveaway using the hashtag #Vaccines930.
I’ll announce the winner next Friday but if you don’t want to wait or you definitely want to end up at the show with yours truly, you can buy your tickets here. Hope to see ya there!
What a crazy week! I guess this post is a day late, but I finally got around to getting it together. I want to share my election night project: #cakemap. I drew a map on to a chocolate sheet cake and as the states were called, we filled them in with blue and red icing. It was a fun (and sweet – we ate a good amount of icing) way to spend election night!
To get the map on the cake, I punched little holes in the outline of a paper map with a push pin. We put the paper map on top of the chocolate cake and dusted powder sugar over it, pressing the sugar into the outline holes. We were hoping to get a clear outline with it but it wasn’t clear or it was pretty faint in some parts, so I ended up free-handing some of it by just looking at a map. The states were pretty misshaped on the East Cost, and I forgot South Carolina at first (oops), but in the end I think it came out great!
The cake when Obama won with 274 electoral votes:
The final cake on Wednesday morning with every state filled in except Florida:
Thanks Alejandra, Tammy, and Emily for all your help with Election Cake Map. Have to remember this for four years from now!
