Whovian Hat: The 4th Doctor

I have been lucky enough in this blogging adventure to come across some really awesome stuff!  I routinely browse Etsy for fun products to share with you.  Some of my favorite searches are Union Jack, Sherlock and of course Doctor Who!
That is when I came across Crafty Kitty Crochet!  I right away fell in love with her 4th Doctor hat.  I have been wanting to try the fun beanie trend and a nerdy one was right up my alley.  I contacted shop owner Melissa to see if she wanted to team up for a post and she agreed!
The hat arrived from Melissa swiftly and safely.  Now I've tried my hand at knitting and can knit a crappy lil dish towel, but Melissa is amazing and her skills blew me away!  The hat is gorgeous and I love how it can be maneuvered to sit how you like it best and it is super soft.
The night I went out to take these pictures, was finally chilly here in LA and the hat kept me nice and cozy warm!  I cannot wait to take it on a couple of upcoming trips to colder climates and really break it in!
You can purchase your own 4th Doctor beanie on Crafty Kitty Crochet's Etsy shop.  Follow Melissa on Twitter and LIKE her on Facebook!

The Nerdy Girlie's Music Monday #6: Behind the Scenes at Starling Glow Music Video Shoot

I love Instagram, have I ever said that before?!  Yeah....HERE and HERE!  :)  Well I'm going to say it again!  I LOVE INSTAGRAM.  While scrolling through my feed the other day I saw an awesome shot posted by American Authors by the lovely @rachel_shoots.  Of course I then had to Insta stalk her and liked a ton of her photos.  She then hit me up to email her, so of course I did!
Rachel is photographer and publicist here in LA, representing the amazingly talented lady Liz of Starling Glow.  Liz had a music video shoot this past Saturday for her new single Ignite and Rachel invited me to get a behind the scenes look and share it with you!
I have to admit I was kinda intimidated going to my first music video shoot {after the Gavin DeGraw debacle, not sure I shared that experience!}.  I pulled up to a downtown LA street with builds that seemed empty.  Luckily I found my way rather quickly thanks to Rachel and my new friend Billy.
Billy took me up to where the action was taking place and introduced me to Liz, who was in makeup.  Liz was super sweet and took some time to thank me for coming down and say I could basically shoot whatever I wanted.  So for the next few hours I did just that.  Trying my best to stay out of everyone's way.
It was nice to be a fly on the wall.  Everyone had their job and they did it perfectly.  The shoot went very smooth and efficient!
The last shot of the day had to be my favorite as it was up on the roof top over looking downtown LA at magic hour.  The lighting was perfect, the band and Liz nailed it!  It was such a fun way to experience LA, which up until now I was still on the fence about.  Thanks to Liz, Rachel, Billy and the entire team, I think I am finally enjoying this city!
Liz's single Ignite drops on Tuesday on Fuse, so make sure you go and check it out!  You can find Liz and Starling Glow at the links below!
