I'm not usually one to get political on here... but I can't even put into words how baffling and saddening the lack of gun regulation in this country is. There have been 18 school shootings in the US so far this year, and it’s only February! Policy and change need to happen. Now IS the time to talk about gun control. ⠀

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

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!
