Fashion Friday Featuring Vincent Reeve

So I haven’t ordered anything from Vincent Reeve just yet, but it’s mostly cause I cannot decide on what I have to have, it’s all so great I’m having trouble deciding.

Vincent Reeve was created by Jacob Olds, and is run by himself, Bethany Olds, and Nathan Currin. I have to admit I sort of fangirled the moment I found out Jacob was going to be doing a clothing line. For those of you who don’t know Jacob is the drummer for Family Force 5. So what kind of clothing can one expect from a musician, stylist, and just all around great guy? There is definitely a vintage feel to these clothes but they have their own street style edginess that makes them unique, quite like Jacob himself. Fashion isn’t supposed to be serious, its supposed to be fun, it’s how you make a statement without saying a word. I think every single piece in this line makes the statement of fun, but still gives you the ability to put your own particular spin on it.

Here are some of my favorites for the ladies:

Seriously its 2013?

Ya I’m way behind, most everyone had their “year in review” blogs posted new years day, but I’m a procrastinator *shoulder shrug of indifference* 2012 was quite a year, but I’ll just share the things that stick out the most.

Last year (February) I celebrated the fact I was no longer a teen, and like the sophisticated adult I am 😉 I threw my very first dinner party, complete with appetizers, boeuf bourguignon for the main course, and a three tiered birthday cake. It was by far the best birthday I ever had. Not because of what I did, but of who I spent it with, being surrounded by your closest friends and having them all talk about how you met, why you get a long, and any funny anecdote they feel the need to share about you has a surprising ability to turn someone as goofy as I into a sentimental sap. I honestly cried with my best friend of about 12 years because of a vintage necklace she bought me. Talk about softening with age!

I also managed to go to some pretty awesome concerts last year, not a bunch of concerts but its quality not quantity. One of my first concerts of the year (March I think) was seeing Keith Harkin. Man does he put on a great show! His guitar playing is unmatched, and his vocals are so strong! Most musicians are not as good live but I must say Keith consistently rocks the house.Ireland!!! 220Another highlight of the year was the fact Keith retweeted my blog about this concert! Consequently I had quite a rise in views on my blog, and met some other really fabulous people through twitter who had the same taste in music as I did.

Then during the middle of summer I got to be in a Family Force 5 music video. It was pure madness, we met in some rather sketch looking warehouse in Arlington, there was no air conditioning, just a few fans here and there, a bunch of other “5ers” and myself. I went by my lonesome because none of my friends could make it. I was so freaked out by that fact. I was a homeschooler so I never really experienced the whole walk into a group and not know a single soul thing. But I managed to meet some really great people and make new friends! I have a feeling I will remember that day for many years to come, I mean how could I forget dripping with sweat (sexy right?), dancing like a madwoman, and meeting so many wonderful people? By far one of my favorite memories of 2012

Then in November I got to see Keith Harkin again, yes I know one of his concerts was already a highlight, but this one was so excellent it managed to become another highpoint for me. On top of Keith putting on an amazing show, I also got to meet one of my twitter friends who went to the concert too, so that night was doubly wonderful.

keith harkin concert 223Keith also retweeted my blog about that concert too, so yet another highlight to whole experience.

I could go on sharing wonderful things that happened in 2012, but honestly I don’t really care to, I’m just getting back into the swing of blogging after all 😉 2012 was an exciting year and I’m looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in-store for me. Just in the next few months I have quite a lot to look forward to, turning 21, my baby sister becoming a teenager, being a bridesmaid for a close friend, and welcoming a nephew into this crazy world. I have a pretty good feeling that 2013 will be even more incredible than 2012 don’t you?

What are some of your highlights from 2012? Do you have any big events in 2013? I would love to hear some feedback from you guys! I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you’re having a happy Wednesday and 2013!

Music Monday No. 3

Look at me still sticking to my new blog series! I’m so proud of me 😉 Well today’s musical Monday recommendation is for a rather epic music video! As some of you may know, during the summer I was able to take part in a music video of Family Force 5’s through Kickstarter. The music video is Cray Button, and it was released a couple of weeks ago. Isaac Deitz was the videographer/director for this whole thing, and let me tell you he absolutely out did himself, the music is without a doubt one of best I have ever seen! So give it a watch/listen and prepare to have your mind blown 😉

also I thought I might as well throw in the link to the behind the scenes footage. Nathan Mowery was the behind the scenes videographer, and I feel compelled to tell you all that the behind the scenes footage truly captures the awesomeness of the shoots, and I love it just as much as I love the actual music video!

If you ever have the opportunity to take part in a Family Force 5 music video do it! It could very well be one of the best decisions you ever make. You get to brag that you took part in something positively epic, and you will walk away with some amazing new friends, I know I did. I hope all of you enjoyed this post and that you all have a happy musical Monday!

 

Check One Off The Bucket List

Is there anything more satisfying than crossing something off a list? Honestly it doesn’t matter what kind of list, grocery, packing, honey do, but the top has to be crossing something off the ole bucket list. As some of you may know I wrote about how on my bucket list taking part in a music video was one of my goals, and how much I wanted to be in the music video Cray Button with Family Force 5. Well they reached their funding goal for the video to take place, and I was able to be apart of it. So on Sunday morning armed with directions to the warehouse where we were filming, loads of water/Gatorade, and a whole bundle of nerves I set off. I was fairly nervous because I didn’t exactly know what to expect and I wasn’t able to talk a friend into going with me, but about 15 minutes into signing in I made some friends, and the nerves went away thank goodness. The day consisted of waiting about mostly (like any film project does), dancing like a mad person, running, sweating, and oh ya more sweating! Who needs a sauna when you can party in a warehouse with no AC in the middle of a July Texas day? I think I did enough sweating and working out to last me a year, here it is Tuesday and I’m still sore.

Party People

We also did a bit of filming outside, for some crowd rafting. Let me tell you Solomon (lead vocals) is one brave man, I don’t know that I would ever hop onto a little inflatable boat a top of my fans and have them pass me back and forth. In case you are wondering no he didn’t fall…well on the ground that is.

Solomon crowd rafting!

That’s Isaac Deitz up there on the american flag drapped building. He was the videographer/director for this whole thing. My hats off to him!

The whole band of Family Force 5!

The lightboxes!

After all the filming had taken place as a thank you/wrap party the band held a concert, and let me tell you they were absolutely killin it! I have no idea how they put on such a great show considering how hard they had been working all day! But is was amazing!

His face paint did not last long, sweat will do that 😉

Just in case playing an incredible show wasn’t enough the boys stuck around to take pictures and sign things for the fans! So naturally I had to get some pics…sorry for the low quality but I was too scared to bring my Canon. :/

Me and Josh (bassist) poor guy was so tired but he was such a trooper!

Me and Jacob (drummer) this guy is such a goofball I love him!

Me and Derek (guitarist) This guy is always so polite and makes time for his fans gotta love that!

Nathan, Solomon, my lil sis, me, Jacob, Derek, and Josh after a long eventful day.

I had the best time ever and I can’t wait to see the video, they showed us a few clips of what it will look like and I know we are in for quite an incredible video! So if you ever have the opportunity to see Family Force 5 or if you’re lucky enough to be in one of their videos do so! You will have a blast. Oh and you can bet I will post Music Video once its finished and released! Happy Tuesday guys!

Bucket List!

Hey guys so one of the things on my bucket list is to be in a music video! No I’m no singer, I just want to be somebody in the background you know? Well I may actually get to cross that off my list, but only if this really awesome band Family Force 5 gets enough funding to do this music video…And if you live near Dallas or can travel here you can also be a part of the video, if you pledge enough. Pretty amazing right? Well here’s the link to pledge they only have 8 days left to raise just over $6000 so can we all make this happen?
