Ben Howard at Terminal 5

Monday night, I saw Ben Howard at Terminal 5 in NYC with some friends. Bottom line, he was amazing and everyone needs to go listen to his music right now, if you haven’t already. He is a crazy talented guitarist, has a beautiful voice, writes great lyrics, and was awesome live. The band he played with was just as talented and they created a fantastic concert experience. His music is currently on repeat on all of my devices…yes, I am slightly obsessed.

If you’ve never listened to him, you should definitely check out some songs on Youtube. I was going to try to give you a list of my favorites, but found myself writing down every single song on his album Every Kingdom. But I’m going to try really hard to give you a list of my top 5 favorites – ones I couldn’t live without. (Links to Youtube video)

Old Pine

Black Flies

Bones (I used the lyrics in this song on a photograph I took on the train)

Burgh Island

The Wolves

And because I love his lyrics so much, here are a few of my favorites:

“Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags / I’ve come to know the friends around you / Are all you’ll always have / Smoke in my lungs, or the echoed stone / Careless and young, free as the birds that fly / With weightless souls now.” – Old Pine


“Give me shelter, or show me heart / Come on love, come on love. / Watch me fall apart, watch me fall apart.” – Only Love

“I saw a friend of mine the other day, / And he told me that my eyes were gleamin’. / Oh I said I had been away, and he knew, / Oh he knew the depths I was meanin’. / And it felt so good to see his face, / Or the comfort invested in my soul. / Oh to feel the warmth of a smile, / When he said “I’m happy to have you home.” – Keep Your Head Up


“Winter stole summer’s thrill / And the river’s cracked and cold” – Black Flies


“And meet me there, bundles of flowers, / We wait through the hours of cold / Winter shall howl at the walls, / Tearing down doors of time.” – Promise


“Oh if you’re there / When the world comes to gather me in / Oh if you’re there / I will be blessed” – Blessed


This was a very difficult list to make. Please don’t ask me to pick my favorite Ben Howard songs ever again! I may or may not be buying tickets to see him again in six months…

Let me know what you think if you check out his music! 🙂

My Week via Instagram


I finally organized my craft books in the basement and took some time to catch up on my magazine reading.

I rocked my Toms leopard fur botas all week and they kept my feet so warm!

We had a gallery opening on Friday night at work, so I got to dress up all fancy in my metallic gold skirt with a bow.

I finally caved and bought myself a bottle of Jimmy Choo perfume. I think it was a good investment because I’ve been receiving many compliments!

And I spent the weekend in the city celebrating my best friends 25th birthday. We splurged and decided to get a hotel, which turned into the greatest decision ever because the front desk greeted us with free, warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
