Happy New Year, and Stuff


Hey y’all!  I just wanted to write a quick post to let you know that I am thinking of you all.  And I’m hoping for a beautiful New Year for everyone.  So, yeah, Happy New Year!

I hope you were able to celebrate the changing year with loved ones.  My husband Nick, our little dude Waylon, and I spent the evening watching white confetti snow fall outside our window with a warm fire in the fireplace.  At midnight we braved the chilly mountain night to shout some New Year happiness into the forest.

Although I had not a drop to drink (I have one very good reason to not sip champagne right now, which we will officially announce in a month or so – Wink, wink.)  I woke up feeling exhausted and lazy.  Outside, the snow clouds have turned to a cold, white fog, so it wasn’t difficult to convince us to be lazy on the couch with an inspiring documentary and a cup of tea.

There are VERY FEW things that inspire me like a rock’n’roll documentary.  It’s the music, of course.  But it is also the brave creativity of musicians and their groovy clothes.  I love me some vintage clothes.

Check out the new Beatles documentary on Hulu for a behind-the-scenes look at the sacrifices these four guys made to bring us some of the best rock and roll music of all time!Today my husband tempted me with the new Hulu documentary, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – the Touring Years.  Needless to say, he didn’t have to twist my arm.

I totally recommend the documentary to anyone who loves the Beatles, to anyone who doesn’t know about the sacrifices these four guys made to bring us some of the best rock’n’roll of all time, or to anyone who just loves to see footage of the Sixties.

My Christmas present to my husband this year was a box full of vintage, psychedelic ties.  I got super lucky and ran across an entire collection of them on my treasure hunting travels.  This documentary got me even more excited about my find and now I’m on a mission to get my husband some velvet jackets to match.

If you don’t have Hulu but you want to watch a rad documentary, I also recommend Crossfire Hurricane, a documentary on the Rolling Stones available on HBO.

If you don’t have either of these streaming services, you can get The Beatles and The Stones documentaries on DVD from Amazon for pretty cheap:

Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years

The Rolling Stones: Crossfire Hurricane

If you check out either of these let me know what you think in the comments section.

From my family to yours, Happy 2017!   I hope your year is off to a beautiful start!

Peace & Love,
Nikki Leigh
