Around the World from Home: 2019 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

As far back as I can remember one of my favorite outdoor things to do was/is attend festivals. Growing up I looked forward to the Houston International Festival every year. The music, the food, and the cultural exposure...there’s usually always something fun to do and cool to see at festivals. Here’s a list of some cool festivals taking place in the Houston, Texas area or within driving distance of the Houston, Texas area this year. Some of these events are free and tickets to some of the events that aren’t free can be purchased at a discount on Groupon so be sure to do a little research before you plan your next adventure. #liveItUp

JORD Watches

This is a sponsored post.

Butterflies, I like to have unique accessories I can wear daily that are distinctive but simple; St. Louis based watch brand Jord (pronounced Yode) which I recently discovered offers an array of watches to match everyone’s personal style and they are constantly developing new designs. These watches are a highly-developed mix of natural, and recycled materials, combined with quality movements and parts.

I was sent a wooden wrist watch from JORD’s Cassia series, in ebony and sable. This particular watch features their signature full Roman numeral concave dial encased in a domed sapphire glass with a metal and wood link interlaced band that conforms seamlessly into the rounded case. Of all the amazing timepieces JORD has, the Cassia and Frankie (in ebony) are my favorite. The design of both of these pieces perfectly complement my minimalist style and the only major difference between the two are the bands.

‘00s Music Spotlight: White Flag by Dido

Butterflies, so I’m in the grocery store today and this song is playing, suddenly I find myself singing along to the lyrics as I picked my produce, totally forgetting where I was for a second or two. Has this happened to any of you?

Anyway, I’m a huge logophile so lyrics are everything to me; there are very few songs with choruses that speak to me but the chorus Dido uses in White Flag happens to be a chorus that does. “I will go down with this ship and I won't put my hands up and surrender. There will be no white flag above my door, I'm in love and always will be.” The deceleration of unconditional love in this chorus is everything! White Flag was released on Dido’s 2003 Life for Rent album. Ironically she’s releasing a new album and will be on tour this summer.

My favorite lyrics on this track (besides the chorus lol)...

“I’ll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on”
