Known more commonly by her stage name Halsey, Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, is an American artist due to release her first album next month! I also found out she's going to be a part of the Imagine Dragons Smoke + Mirrors Tour  during their tour in the US, and I'm hoping she'll show up to the concert I'm going to in August! Fingers crossed.

Take a listen to her sound and let me know what you think.

If you're a US reader, hope you had a lovely July 4th (that's our Independence Day for those of you who may not know)! If not, I hope you had a fantastic weekend anyway :)

PS: I put up another video the other day (check out my channel HERE) showing you an all-natural face scrub I've been using lately. It's really helped with my dry patches this summer, and I hope it helps you too if you try it!

EXPLORE: Cauldron Linn

These photographs were taken about a month ago when I ventured to a local place called Cauldron Linn. Out in the middle of nowhere, near Murtaugh, Idaho, is a beautiful spot where the Snake River drove through and forced this 40 foot passage that we enjoy today. Apparently, it has a bit of history to it, because as I overlooked the falls and the plummeting drop, I was told that in 1811, The Wilson Price Hunt party capsized several times here and had to make the rest of the journey on foot.

It's a miracle they survived if you ask me!

I'm hoping to return here again, and perhaps film a bit this time. I can't get enough of exploring! It's amazing to think how far I've come in accepting Idaho as my home since we first moved here. Let's just say 12-year-old city slicker Linda was not too impressed. I'm still a bit of a city girl (okay, who am I kidding, a lot), but my appreciation for the countryside and natural beauty that's readily available has grown in leaps and bounds. Every time I'm driving away from the big city and start winding through laid back, country roads,I can't believe how stunning it is here. We may not have impressive skyscrapers or city skylines to write home about. But what we do have are towering mountains, roaring rivers, unexpected waterfalls, rolling hills of farmland, and sunsets that light the sky on fire with the most beautiful combination of orange, pink, and lavender.

What's even better is the ability to get away and disappear in it for a little. Not everywhere is overrun with people yet, and you can still find a niche of nature to find isolated solitude in.

Yes, I've come a long way in appreciating Idaho's beauty.
But I'm here now, and I can proudly call this state home.

YOUTUBE // Boise Music Festival & Hair Talks

Hello everyone and happy first day of July!

So sorry I missed Music Monday this week (I know, I know, for shame...), but I'll make it up to you today with a fresh new track I've discovered. It's Joy William's "Before I Sleep." Its more chill than the tracks I've been picking lately, but still has a nice beat to it. Take a listen and let me know if you like it.

Another update would be what's in the video below. I went to my first music festival over the weekend, AND I dyed my hair! It's a fun shade of purple, magenta, and orange/pink....
 So basically, my ends are the color of a summer sunset.
Yeah, I'm never trying a fun color on my hair again. It's ridiculous.

But the longer I've had it, the more used to it I'm getting. I like it! 

If you haven't already, check out my YouTube channel (HERE) and subscribe! I try to update it weekly with fresh new videos, and you never know what I'll be bringing you. Have you seen my comical Disaster In the Kitchen video? Tell me what you think! 

I'll be sharing more local spots from Idaho here soon, but I've picked up another shift this week, so work's been keeping me busy. Stay tuned!

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

It's summer. It's hot. I'm wearing a sports bra as a top - would you?
Haha, I put together a short little video showing 3 different ways I'd wear a sports bra out. From dressy to casual, I've got you covered. Please give it a view, visit my channel (HERE), and give it a big thumbs up!

Oh, and don't forget to subscribe if you haven't already ;)

Also, are there any types of videos you'd be interested in seeing? What would you like me to make next? Let me know in the comments!

PS: Have you heard about the Eddie Borgo collaboration with Target? You can read more about it here, but just take a peek at a couple of the pieces below. I'm so eager to get my hands on some of these bags and charms!
