you better be watching this

Are you watching Black Mirror on Netflix?

If you're not, GO NOW. It's one of most creative, well-written, well-acted, brilliant things I've watched.

Watch it now and tweet me what you think. It's all I can think about right now.

However, a caveat. Since every episode of this show is a stand alone story, I suggest starting with the first episode of season two called "Be Right Back." It's the best and the very first episode is so bonkers you might be scared to watch more. Also, the last episode is totally weak. Didn't like it at all.

There's a Christmas special starring Jon Hamm coming up...time to get stealth and find out how to watch it online!

how did I do?

2014-12-07 20.34.38 ugh.

This is first year in awhile that I've slacked on my New Year's resolutions. Need a reminder of what they were? Click here.

However, I'm pretty happy with what I accomplished--it's not like I sat back and did absolutely nothing.

Did I read all the books I own, but have not read?

No. But I've read 42 and counting....that's decent.

Did I keep a clean car and closet?

No. But I honestly think I did better than before...

Did I get comfortable kicking up to the wall for handstand?

No. But I am doing pincha mayurasana! That's something right?!

Did I paint much?

No. I wish I had.

Did I finish my 52 poses blog project?

Kind of...not really. Here's an explanation.

This year, I plan to ease up on my resolutions...back off a bit.

Sorry to not post for a few days---will hopefully be back with regular posts soon.

 

 

best of 2014: music for yoga

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset Instead of just posting about my favorite music of the year, I thought I'd go more specific: music for yoga practice.

I'm very picky about my yoga music. While it's fine when I'm taking class at various studios, I'm not a huge fan of traditional yoga music when practicing by myself. I'll admit it, I blast some pretty unconventional stuff. This was a a great year for yoga music. Here are some songs that I cannot stop blasting.

Below is a full playlist via Spotify that I will continue to update.
