The View Through My Lens 8 & The Ultimate Summer Playlist

Happy Post-Memorial Day!  If you're like me then that means you're sufficiently bronzed and can now say you've read all the Chelsea Handler books.  ;)  Here's a few shots from my weekend:

My friend Kristie and I enjoyed frozen screwdrivers on the porch of one of our favorite Houston pubs, I loved burning my new candle that was a gift, and I enjoyed a latte Saturday morning with my family at brunch.  I spent Sunday morning looking through my new coffee table book that came from One King's Lane.  Is anyone else as obsessed as me with this site?!  It's genius!  They do all the work by finding great pieces or having collections curated and then send them to you every day.  I promise they aren't paying me to say this, although they probably should since I've gotten many people addicted to the site. ;)

In other news, I have officially curated the perfect summer playlist (for my tastes, at least)!  I do not discriminate against any form of music, so my list is extremely eclectic....
1.) Bad Fish - Sublime
2.) Six Underground - Sneaker Pimps
3.) Promises, Promises - Incubus
4.) Change - The Lightening Seeds
5.) My Favorite Mistake - Sheryl Crow
6.) Summer Girl - Leighton Meister
7.) Dancing on My Own - Robyn
8.) Santeria - Sublime
9.) Sweet Child O' Mine - ACDC
10.) Let The Drummer Kick - Citizen Cope
11.) Oklahoma Girl - Eli Young Band (What can I say?  I had to include this one- I'm an Oklahoma girl!)
12.) Talk that Talk - Rihanna
13.) Dance Again - J Lo
14.) Free Bird - Lynard Skynard

A mix of classic rock, hip hop, and a tad bit of country.  It's the perfect mix for when you're laying by the pool.  Which I did a bit too much of today!

  8. nice pics ;))


  9. I think I'm the only person who is not addicted to OKL. Probably because I don't have money to shop. But I also don't like making purchases under pressure. I can't handle pampered chef parties or the like....

    But I LOOOOOOOOVE Slim Aarons, I would adore that book. And can we discuss how gorgeous you two blonde hotties are???!!!

  10. This is a great mix Sam. And that last photo is so wonderfully vintage!

  18. Random question -- what program do you use to create your instagram 4 images into one image 4x4? (or whatever you'd call it haha). I am wanting to start a weekly "my week in instagram" feature on my blog, but wasn't sure how to get that picture format. Thanks!


  19. Never mind! I was making it too complicated. I have an app that does it... haha


What say you? I'm all ears.
