Julia Walck | An Indie Kind of Love Valentine's Playlist

I know we agreed on no presents this year... but I couldn't help but make you a playlist filled with indie/alternative songs about love to serenade your Valentine's Day. 

Also, did you know about Hollywood Glam Valentine's photos? I didn't either, until I stumbled upon them searching for some vintage cover art, (featuring Deanna Durbin). And man are they so elaborately themed and amazing! I went down an internet wormhole for about an hour, (or maybe more), and rounded up my favorites below. Please listen, scroll, and enjoy!

Ok, so you just started scrolling and you're probably thinking, "WHAT?! That IS amazing". It is. And trust me, It only gets better from here.

So many questions. Can giant chocolate boxes be made to order? Can I order in bulk? Do they come filled with chocolate?

And, I saved the best for last here. That's some gravity defying hair right there. And maybe I should've done a DIY for that hat? Maybe next year.

Happy Valentine's Day!
