Officially saying Ta Ta for now to my MINI Cooper!

Today I officially say goodbye, as I sold my MINI cooper and purchased myself a 4-door. I love my car dearly, but I've been seriously contemplating adding a little person (Yes! Crazy! I know!) at some point soon in my life - and I don't think I could put 2 children in car seats this way. I will say it was ok with just one, but the first year and a half wasn't easy as pie. (Pie is not easy)

It's weird to say I have this emotional bond to my Agent Cooper. (Yes, huge Twin Peaks fan here!) but not to the point I want to make-out with it like TLC "My Strange Addiction" styles. Click that link if you don't know what I mean ;)

I mean - just see at how awkward our relationship looks. We can't explain the connection - but it's there. ;)
My mother-in-law took this photo for me. She did a great job in all my awkward glory last night ;)

Anyways, I wanted to devote a post just to my first car and how amazing the MINI cooper is! I'll post my new car tomorrow - if I don't instagram it this evening. I'll give you a giant hint though - I didn't leave the MINI world!

Going to miss you, cute car! Enjoy 100x more driving from someone who can really drive you good and hard! xo

I'll also link the first time when I bought it! Good memories!

So long, chap. <3>

Crystal Fighters - Cave Rave!

Heck YES! This is some fantastic summer music to dance/drive to! Crystal Fighters (British/Spanish) formed in Spain in 2007 and are making quite the impression with their "Cave Rave" album! It was just released May 27th 2013 - and I feel giant things are going to happen with this amazing group.

Some really wonderful production on these tracks that implicate a sweeter acoustical sound of the 60s/70s era with it's ghostly, soulful melodies - then it surprisingly pierces your soul with 80's synths that satisfy :)

 Some magical electronic music happening! It's hard NOT to dance around and jump in circles to this album... If you can't understand that  - Where's your soul? ;)

Here's one of their tracks - WAVE - the track that took my heart out into the ocean of Crystal Fighters!

"Separator" was the other song that I really enojyed as well! I see they have a video for this as well!

You HAVE to buy this album. I promise you won't regret it :)

*review based on my honest opinion as I purchase everything myself.
