Look Inside

It's starting to feel a lot more like Christmas in chilly Chicago! Although the rain needs to be replaced by some snow, it looks like it's not going to be a white Christmas this year.  All of this cold, gray weather makes me just want to snuggle inside but my trip so far has been pretty nonstop with activities, errands, and of course practicing (I'm singing at my college roommate's wedding on New Year's Eve in Nashville!) As you know from my last Chicago post, I'm pretty obsessed with my dogs, so you know they had to make appearances this time around too ;)

Il commence à sentir beaucoup plus comme Noël maintenant. Il fait froid ici, mais des pluies plutôt que de neige. Je crois qu'il ne soit pas un Noël blanc après tout. En ce temps froid et gris, j'ai envie de se blottir chez moi, mais mon voyage a été remplie d’activités, faisant des cours, et pratiquant les chansons (Je chante au cérémonie de mariage de mon ami ce NYE à Nashville). Comme tu sais de la dernière poste à Chicago, je suis obsédé avec mes chiens.  Ils font un apparence ce fois aussi ;)

Les Vitrines de Noël

It has been a CRAZY first few days back home in Chicago for Christmas. First, the day I got back (my mom's 50th birthday) my Grandma fell on the driveway when she came over to decorate the house for her birthday as a surprise. She fell smack on her face, knocking a couple teeth out, her face is all black and blue, and she was bleeding all over. Poor thing, but luckily didn't break any bones! Then, a couple days later, my car's catalytic converter was sawed off from the underside in the middle of the night. Chicago was really welcoming me home with open arms ;) But it feels so good to be back, and although I detest the cold weather, it is a magical city that I forgot just how much I missed until I'm back! One of my other favorite magical cities that I've lived in is Paris and there's nothing quite like Paris at Christmastime. Printemps and Galeries LaFayette always do amazing vitrines de Noël (Christmas windows) and 2011 is no exception. This year, Printemps worked with Maison Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld to design the Printemps Christmas Dreams of Escape. Galeries LaFayette's theme is Rock 'N Mode, designed by NYC artist and illustrator Andrew Yang. Check it out below! What part of the world are you spending the holidays?

I LOVE Robyn! She has great songs and I adore her awesomely awkward yet passionate dance moves :) She performed on Saturday Night Live last night. Check out her performances here.  Glad she's finally getting some major American TV exposure!

Thanksgiving in DC

I spent Thanksgiving in DC this year and wanted to share some photos of the week with you all (very late I know!) It was gorgeous to be out on the east coast seeing the full change of the season unlike in LA, but it still being really gorgeous out and not too cold.  I got some gorgeous photos when we walked through Rock Creek Park, past the National Zoo, all the way into Georgetown. Beautiful!

Hope you all had a great week! Mine has been crazy running from writing sessions, meetings, shows, and performance/voice coaching.  I did a new ballad this week that I am SO excited about. It may just be my favorite song I have ever done so far... Have any of you seen this SNL skit about Adele's "Someone Like You" where anytime it starts playing, everybody just starts bawling? haha, I feel like this new song we just did could be the NEXT one. It's some deep shit :)

Have a great weekend!

J'ai passée Thanksgiving à Washington DC cette année.  Je voulais partager quelques photos de la semaine avec toi (un peu tard, je sais!). Il faisait beau et plein de soleil.  C’était merveilleux d’être sur la côte est de voir le changement de la saison, contrairement à Los Angeles, mais il n’était pas encore trop froid.  J'ai pris quelques photos merveilleux quand nous nous sommes promenés de Rock Creek Park, a côte de la Zoo National, tout la chemin à Georgetown.  Vraiment belle! 

J’espère que t'as passée une bonne semaine! La mienne était fou, plein de séances de compositions de chansons, le coaching de voix et l’interprétation, et des réunions.  On a écrit une nouvelle chanson (une ballade) qui est peut-être ma chanson préférée que je suis jamais fait. As-tu vu la parodie sur SNL de la chanson d'Adele, "Someone Like You" chaque instance la chanson se joue, tout le monde commence à pleurer? haha, Je me sens que cette nouvelle chanson pourrait être la suivante. C'est profond. 
Bon weekend!
