Late To Beatlemania + My Beatles Playlist

Do you ever wish you could time travel to a particular time and place? Of course you do, you are nerds! Time travel is our thing. Me? As of now, I'd love to go back to the sixties! 1961. Liverpool, England.
I was never a fan of The Beatles. I didn't dislike them, I just never listened to them. If I'm being honest, I thought the hype was too much. Even on my trip to England I didn't do anything Beatles. I saw them here and there but never cared much. But now Ocean Eyes are in talks of going to NYC for Christmas to do a John Lennon tour {he's my favorite!}. He was super sad when I met him and I said I didn't care for The Beatles when he grew up listening to them, it is his mom's favorite band! I can say they, you, everyone was right!
Now on this other side of Beatlemania, I am discovering them for the first time. I'm learning their personalities {they are so funny!!!}, their rise to stardom and infamy and for a half of them, their deaths. The more I learn about them, the more I understand how there can never be a band like them again. All of their popularity came through word of mouth, TV and radio. No iPhones, no Snap Chat and no internet! It's mind blowing to see the mania that ensued around them.

NOW for my favorite Beatles songs! Boy was this hard. Thank god Spotify has all of their albums. I listened and listened and kept changing my choices. 13 albums! Of course it is hard to pick a favorite. So I have an extras list as well! LOL These are in no particular order, but Black Bird and Help are probably tied right now!

My 10 favorite Beatles songs Playlist:

1. Help!

2. Hey Jude.

3. Oh! Darling.

4. Let It Be.

5. Black Bird.

6. Eleanor Rigby.

7. Here Comes The Sun.

8. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

9. Come Together.

10. Twist And Shout.

Ocean Eyes' Favorite: Strawberry Fields.

EXTRAs: Something. Because. Good Day Sunshine. Yesterday. We Can Work It Out. I Want To Hold Your Hand. It's Getting Better {MY LIFE!}
So of course when we went and celebrated Ocean Eyes' 30th birthday in Vegas, I had to get us tickets to see LOVE! It was amazing, full and we got even better seats than I paid for! The BEST performance in LOVE was Tomorrow Never Knows. But I did want to cry during Yesterday!

And now I want to go live in the Sixties! In 1964 The Beatles came and toured the US for the first time. They release an album every six months. The fashion was groove, peace and love popular {see above picture, that is a vintage dress!}. BIG things were happening in music! The Beach Boys {1961}, Fleetwood Mac {1967}. The Beach Boys I've been a fan of since childhood {CA Girl!} and Fleetwood I discovered just before The Beatles. I am a happy music fan right now! I love all of my NEW OLD music!
In the 60s all of the music carried a great message: "All you need is love," "There is still a chance that they will see, There will be an answer, let it be," "Come together," "Life is very short, and there's no time For fussing and fighting, my friend."

I am now asking everyone I encounter what their favorite Beatles songs are and who their favorite Beatle is! Strangers, clients and family and friends. Share your's in the comments below! I cannot wait to hear!

Thank you nerds for sticking with me through ALL of my nerd outs! xx

Everyday Cosplay: May the 4th Be With YOU!

(Insert Imperial Death March here) It’s gonna be May and that means….MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!

Every year on May the 4th, Star Wars fans from across the galaxy unite for a celebration in all things Star Wars. We even move on into the 5th, with May the 5th (Sith) because Star Wars is too big for just ONE day!

Now what to wear?! I’ve gathered up some Everyday Cosplay’s for you and a sweet ass t-shirt you MUST buy!

Bring on the fashion, ladies first!
Everyday Rey: Spring

By now, we’ve all seen The Force Awakens 143 times. And if you are anything like me you want to be Rey! She is a badass character saving the Universe, and teaming up with our favorite classic character Han! All while staying incredibly fashionable. Rey looks like she stepped right off the Coachella stage and so can you. Her natural colors are easy to mix and match throughout any season. Browns, whites and blacks pair easily together to give you an effortlessly bohemian look perfect for spring and on into summer.
Everyday BB-8

Rey’s partner in crime BB-8 doesn’t do too bad of a job herself pulling off a summer style! If you are brave enough to wear all white, then this look is for you! Pops of orange and classic black shades will have you summer ready in no time. Plus those grey Oxfords are a great way to incorporate your fall wardrobe into the spring and summer months.

Everyday Han Solo - Men

Ok guys it is your turn! Who doesn’t want to be Han? The anti-hero of the Star Wars franchise. Han’s classic style is easily interpreted into today. Everyone has a basic white tee and dark jeans! Pair that with your favorite black sneakers and a bold red watch. Invest in a sleek black vest that you can easily use in this casual look or upgrade for a fancy night on the town.

Everyday Finn - Men

Continuing with the new characters, let’s talk about Finn and his effortlessly chic fashion sense! Personally I love an all black ensemble on anyone, including myself. Everyone should have basic pieces in their wardrobe and besides being slimming, monochrome allows you to play around with your accessories. Finn’s jacket is the star of this look. Find a classic leather jacket it and you can wear it year round and for the rest of your life!
NOW for that epic-ly awesome t-shirt I was talking about. By now we have all seen that hilarious SNL skit about Kylo Ren going undercover boss on his employees. If you haven’t click this link and if you have watch it again! The best line to come out of that skit? Kylo Ren is a punk bitch! And just like that this tee was born by Jordandene. It is my favorite and I am constantly getting compliments on it! Personally, this is what I’ll be wearing today.

What about you?! May the fashion be with you!

Everyday deserves a little cosplay!
