Record Store Day

    "The indie record stores are the backbone of the recorded music culture. It's where we go to network, browse around, and find new songs to love. The stores whose owners and staff live for music have spread the word about exciting new things faster and with more essence than either radio or the press. Any artist that doesn't support the wonderful ma and pa record stores across America is contributing to our own extinction."
- Joan Jett


There is absolutely nothing in the world that inspires us more than a real, live record store. Downloading music is great, but there's something special about buying a physical copy of a record. It gives such an awesome thrill, as well as a sense of tangibility to the music that we love. In honor of Record Store Day, we've put together our 3 Must Have records. We found ours through Amoeba Music, the world's largest independent record store, but if you've got a local record store, take the time to go and visit. Not only are you supporting local businesses, you get the chance to be around others who love music as much as you do. You can even find a record store near you through Record Store Day's website. Check it out here!


Delaney and Bonnie are two of our favorite artists, with their groovy, soulful blues and easygoing vibe. If you close your eyes, you can almost imagine sitting together on the porch, jamming together. 





To say the least, the Arctic Monkeys are unbelievably amazing. We've not heard a single song we don't like, and we're waiting very impatiently to see them live. AM is their latest record, and it's one of those rare finds that you play from top to bottom without skipping a single track. 



Ben Howard has been a favorite of ours for years, though we really can't remember how or when we started listening to him. Regardless, we'd been looking forward to his second record, I Forget Where We Were, almost as soon as we finished listening to the first, and it didn't disappoint. His music is moody, atmospheric, and lyrically stunning, and he's in heavy rotation on our record player. 


We want to hear from you: what're your favorite albums? Let us know in the comment section below!

Coffee with a Conscience: Dean's Beans

There are a few things we take very seriously in our lives, like family, music, food...and, of course, coffee! So you can only imagine how thrilled we were when we came across Dean's Beans, a company who takes coffee - and the people who grow it - as seriously as we do. 



Dean's Beans was founded over twenty years ago, and has operated with one mission: to use high quality speciality coffee as a vehicle for progressive change throughout the coffee lands of Asia, Africa, and the Americas. They are dedicated to activism, ecological responsibility, and innovative direct development with their partners. The respect they have for the quality of life of their partners in the coffee world is shown in awesome taste of their coffee.

Coffee always makes us feel good, but it's even better now to know that we're drinking coffee that not only tastes good, but is the product of a company dedicated to doing good for others. Call us dreamers, but we'd like to believe that's how the world should work, and apparently we're not the only ones! So if you're looking for a reason to feel even better about that morning cup of coffee, check out Dean's Beans. We were hooked before we took our first sip.

Lots of love,

What We're Listening To

It's been a while since we've shared what we're listening to, and since it changes so often, we thought it was the perfect time to write up another post! Read on for a rundown on who we've been playing on repeat for the past few weeks. 



It's hard to beat Emmylou Harris in our book. She's somewhere between a teacher, an inspiration, and one of our all-time favorite female artists, sharing the title with the likes of Joni Mitchell and Susan Tedeschi. It's hard to pick a favorite album, but Red Dirt Girl has a special place in our hearts. Our favorite track? Even harder to choose, but it's going to the title track, Red Dirt Girl, this time. (Check out First Aid Kit's cover of Red Dirt Girl, too! It's beautiful, and a wonderful tribute to Emmylou.)

The Long Time Favorite: The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South 



When we look back on our childhood, if we had to name a band that practically made up the soundtrack of our lives, it would be The Allman Brothers Band. Before we really knew who they were, we could sing along with Midnight Rider, Ramblin' Man, and Statesboro Blues, and they have influenced us in more ways than we can count. We recently purchased the deluxe edition of Idlewild South, reminding us how much we love the album. Our favorite track has to be the alternate mix of Midnight Rider; with its laid-back, acoustic feel, and the three part harmonies, it's almost like you're sitting in the room with them in the early 70s, a place we would very much like to be. 

Our Newest Obsession: Liz Vice, There's A Light


Liz Vice has the kind of voice that stops you in your tracks and makes you listen. When a friend posted about her, we checked her out, and when we heard There's A Light live at Portland Soundcheck, we were hooked. She's the perfect mix of gospel and soul, and she'll keep your head nodding the whole time. We're absolutely set on seeing her live. Until then, we'll be playing There's A Light over and over. 

We want to know: who are you listening to lately? Let us know in the comment section below!

A Garden of Our Own

"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." - Audrey Hepburn

Urban farming is very much in these days, with San Antonio the latest city to approve a city-wide return to the traditional "garden to table" lifestyle. We absolutely love the idea, especially as we've grown more and more aware of what actually goes into the food we eat and how it affects our bodies (for more information on why we went organic, check out this article from Prevention). 

Our family life revolves very heavily around sharing meals together. We're all foodies who love to cook and love to eat, and knowing exactly what we're feeding the ones we care for the most is important to all of us. Sure, we want whatever we're making to taste good, but more than anything, we want it to make us feel good...and not in the "feel good" sense of binging on ice cream and cookies (hey, no judgment. We do it, too!). Plus, there's nothing like the taste of fresh fruits and vegetables! 

The awesome thing is that you don't need ten acres and years of expertise to have your very own garden. With the rise of urban gardening and small farms, there are more resources than ever before. Read on and inspire your inner gardener!

The Potager

A potager is the ultimate dream. The word comes from the French term for "kitchen garden," and is intended to make the "function of providing food aesthetically joyful." We already find joy in food. Finding joy in the growing and gathering of it is even better! A  well-designed potager is intended to provide not only food, but fresh flowers and herbs, with little maintenance, and it doesn't take much more than scrolling through a few photos to find them aesthetically joyful!














Patio or Container Gardens

Over the weekend, we came across an article about a man in Mississippi who grows crops in over 1,000 five-gallon buckets on his property. Whether it's in buckets, baskets, barrels, or raised beds, the amount of food you can grow on your patio is unbelievable, and there's no need for any heavy equipment. 

Vertical Gardening

We were given an awesome book about vertical gardening, packed full of information on growing up rather than out. By using trellises and combing climbing plants with ground level plants for maximum harvest, you're able to use a small area most efficiently. Plus, who wouldn't want to walk under an arch of squash and pumpkins?

We've made it a goal this year to have our own patio garden, and we will share our progress as the season goes on! Until then, we can all dream of perfectly planned potagers and meals made of vegetables harvested from our own backyards.

9 Spring-Summer 2016 Trends + 1 Collection We Love

With New York Fashion Week just coming to an end and spring collections hitting all of our favorite stores, it's hard to miss a few looks trending across the board. Read on for our top picks to master the SS16 look.

1. Lovely in Lace

There's something we just love about lace, especially when paired with worn-in denim and a touch of leather. It gives just the amount of light, feminine flair to a casual outfit, and it screams springtime. These adorable lace tops by Zara fit the bill perfectly!

























2. Boho Babe


The free-spirited, 70s, "Almost Famous" vibe has made a major comeback over the past few seasons, and we LOVE it. It's so effortless and chic, with just the right amount of retro and modern.  H&M has an awesome AND affordable selection of flare legged jeans, and Free People can always be counted on for retro-inspired items. This Zara tunic dress is perfect for the upcoming festival season, too. 


3. Think Pink

Audrey Hepburn believed in it, and so do we! We have to admit that the amount of pink we've worn over the past few years has been relatively minimal, but this dress and blouse from Free People have us rethinking it! We love the swing of this gorgeous dress, and the lace-up trend is matched with a ballerina-esque vibe. We would pair both with a great bootie for an easy vibe. 





















4. All Day Suede

Suede is getting close to being as common as leather in our closets, whether in jacket, dress, or bootie form! We're absolutely in love with this adorable patchwork skirt from ASOS, and this simple, elegantly cut vegan suede dress from Aritzia could go easily from day to night. 

 





















5. Pleats, Please

Pleats are SO gorgeous, especially in motion, and with the busiest time of year coming up for us, we'll remain in motion! This dress by Carolina K. is not only stunning but ethically handmade in Mexico (meaning you'll look good AND feel good in what you're wearing!). Pair with booties, as shown, or woven leather huaraches this summer. 





6. Marled Knits

Don't worry, you're not the only one questioning the inclusion of knits this spring (especially if you live in the South, like we do!), but we couldn't resist. This lightweight pullover from Aritzia is perfect for early spring nights when the temperatures drop, and this adorable striped cardigan from Madewell is an easy layering piece for traveling. 

 




7. Fringe Benefits

Love it or hate it, by all appearances, fringe is here to stay, and we're thrilled! We love the easy movement that fringe allows, and how low-key it is. It doesn't take much to make a big impact, as shown on this kimono from Aritzia. The Zara backpack is a staple pieces that will work with anything, and these booties are chic and casual. 





8. Denim

Alright, so maybe this is a great big "Duh!", but hey, we love denim. Who doesn't? Our daily go-to is a skinny jean with a mid-rise waist, but we adore a flare on stage. It has an incredible silhouette and gives the entire outfit a different feel. Whether you like a skinny dark wash, a worn-in boyfriend jean, distressed, or flare, you can't go wrong. But if you're looking for something slightly more unconventional, consider trying a pair of overalls, or a denim dress, like this one from one of our favorite brands, Everlane.





9. Plaid

We are of the opinion that plaid will never be out of style. Ever. It's become a staple - practically a neutral! Whether it's worn casually, or dressed up for a night on the town, it's easy, low maintenance, and gives off an impossibly cool vibe. 

























10. BONUS: The Collection We Love

We just discovered Ulla Johnson and couldn't believe we didn't know about it before. Every piece is gorgeous, effortless, and perfect for spring. Now if you'll excuse us, we'll be revamping our wardrobes in preparation!

In The Spotlight: Thrive Market

Live Well. Do Good.

This isn't just a brand spotlight post, this is a post with an exciting announcement! We are now a part of Thrive Market's Affiliate Program, and we couldn't be happier. 

Thrive is a company that we have believed in from the start. As the first socially conscious online marketplace, Thrive offers the world's top natural, organic products at wholesale prices (think Costco meets Whole Foods, all online). Their dedication to healthy living is more than a business model; it's a mission, and through the company's Thrive Gives Initiative, every paid membership is matched with a free membership for a low-income American family, allowing thousands of people access to healthy, natural products at a price that is comparatively similar to or lower than highly processed, artificial products found at traditional supermarkets. 

We share this dedication to healthy living. After years of struggling to satisfy dietary requirements and a conscious movement away from processed or genetically-modified foods, we found Thrive Market, and we haven't looked back. Good food shouldn't cost an arm and a leg, and we here at BEAU + LUCI, in partnership with the good folks at Thrive, believe that everyone should have access to wholesome food and natural products without the sticker shock from the typical retail markup. 

Thrive Market is able to do this by working hand in hand with the same brands found at any natural food store to purchase their food and products at wholesale prices...allowing them to, in turn, sell them at true wholesale prices. 

Thrive Market also works hand-in-hand with its members, proving that there is strength in numbers; Thrive Market's buying power, and the ability to get great deals, increases as more and more people come on board. Even better, the more that people join, more free memberships are donated to families in need, fitting into Thrive's larger goal of making healthy food available to everyone. 

We can't say enough about how wonderful Thrive Market is, but there's only one thing we have to say for you to see it yourself: check it out here, and join a community dedicated to a life well-lived (and well-fed!). 



Use Your Voice 2016: Patty Griffin, Sarah Watkins, and Anais Mitchell Together On Stage

Before we were even really aware of Patty Griffin, we knew her through the numerous artists who have covered her songs. Top of the World, one of our favorite songs done so beautifully by The Dixie Chicks on their 2002 album, Home, was written by Patty (you can hear her own cut of it here). She's been put on repeat during spells of writer's block in studio, and has become a big part of the eternal playlist of music playing in the background of our lives. 

On Saturday night, we got the chance to see her and two other fantastic talents, Sarah Watkins and Anais Mitchell, in a writers-round style performance, accompanied by guitarist extraordinaire David Pulkingham, in partnership with The League of Women Voters, to  educate and encourage their listeners to use their voices and take part in both national and local elections. Their passion for taking a stand for what they believe in was evident...as well as their passion and talent for music! 

The three of them put on an intimate, relaxed show, taking turns performing their music and harmonizing with each others, then laughing about every day life with the rest of us in the theatre. It truly felt as if we'd all been invited into their home and were sitting around in the living room with them while they sung their hearts out. 

We've been so glad to have been able to attend a series of concerts over the past few months, to see a variety of acts such as Ed Sheeran, The Woods Brothers, The Avett Brothers, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Gregg Allman, and each of them has been a different experience entirely. This show was no exception, and we count ourselves as incredibly lucky students (because that's what we are!) who get to learn our craft from those we respect and admire so very much.

We want to hear from you: What's your dream concert? Let us know in the comment section below!

On The Road Again: A Night with Willie Nelson & Family

This past Monday, we had the opportunity to see a living legend: Mr. Willie Nelson! It was almost unbelievable to know that we were seven rows back from someone who always seemed larger than life to us. He's worked with some of the biggest names in music, from Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, and Emmylou Harris, all the way to Snoop Dog, not to mention being a member of the country supergroup, The Highwaymen, along with Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings. 

It was especially interesting for us, however, to find out that his current band includes not only his older sister, Bobbie Nelson - whom Willie, in true brotherly fashion, calls "Little Sister" on stage - playing piano, but brothers Billy and Paul English, along with the incredible talent of harmonica-master Mickey Raphael and bassist Kevin Smith. As sisters in the music world, we LOVE seeing other sibling groups making waves on stages of their own! 

Willie Nelson & Family packed out the venue and put on quite the show, a true testimony to his talent and lifetime on the road, and played every song on his legendary guitar, Trigger. The best part? The spirited performance of On The Road Again, one of our favorite songs. 

We want to hear from you: what's your favorite Willie Nelson song? Let us know in the comment section below!

The Getaway Guide: Nashville Edition



Okay, truth time: we love Nashville. Everything about it: the music the food, the scenery, the city. It's the perfect combination of old and new, of legends that changed music forever and legends just waiting to be discovered. Just walking up and down Broadway is enough to keep anyone occupied (trust us on this: our first trip to Nashville, we hardly left downtown!), but the more time we spend there, there more we find that there is so much more to Country Music USA.

For this guide, though, we'll be sticking to a 3 day weekend getaway. We know, we know: it's easy to fall in love with Nashville, and nearly impossible to leave, but if you've only got a few days in town, read on! 

The (Not So) Basic Attractions:

  • The Johnny Cash Museum. Johnny Cash is one of our greatest inspirations. We spent hours wandering through the museum, learning more about the man who has already taught us so much. It's full of photos and letters, costumes of his and June's, and even a piece of Johnny's house! 
  • Centennial Olympic Park/The Parthenon. We visited Centennial Olympic Park and The Parthenon, and it was almost like being in Greece without the international flight. The park itself is beautiful, and The Parthenon is full of art and history from the 1897 Centennial Exposition. 
  • The Ryman. By far one of the most famous spots in Nashville, The Ryman is a must-see, the place where legends walked and crowds experienced what can only be felt when music touches the soul. The best part? You can walk in the footsteps of Elvis Presley, Johnny and June, and Hank Williams.
The Village:

Located near Belmont and Vanderbilt, Hillsboro Village is one of our favorite places in Nashville. It's half artsy, half quaint downtown, and one hundred percent walkable. Provence Breads and Cafe, located in Hillsboro Village, is a French cafe with fresh bread, local produce, and artisan foods. Our suggestion? Grab a few ginger molasses cookies or a fruit tart with a Sherlock Holmes (Ghirardelli caramel, vanilla, and Irish cream), or a baguette and an Americano. C'est chic!

After lunch, head a few doors over to BookMan/BookWoman. There's nothing like the smell of books, and this place is full of them. We spent an entire day there in February, and we go back as often as we can. Whether you buy a stack of books as tall as you are, or just wander the aisles, it's the place to be when the temperatures drop. Just down the street, you'll find shops like Pangaea and Posh Boutique, with a wide variety of jewelry, clothing, and accessories, as well as unique gifts.

The Food:


Guys. It's Nashville. Of course we're going to talk about food. If you don't eat anywhere else, go to The Row. We will tell anyone who will listen about The Row. Between The Row Poppers (deep fried, bacon wrapped, jalapeño pimento cheese) and The Row Burgers (pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes, Row sauce, and chow chow), you really won't need to eat anywhere else...


We're kidding, of course. Go to The Row, and go back again (and maybe again...no judgment!), and then try out a Nashville staple: hot chicken. The mild is hardly mild, and the hottest variety is only for the brave of heart, but either way, it's a treat! A few more great restaurants include South Street (Southern urban cuisine), PM (Asian inspired), The Sutler (a saloon with - and we're not kidding - the coolest walk to the bathroom ever), and Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream (go for the brown butter almond brittle, or the wildberry lavender!). If you find yourself in Germantown, stop in for lunch at the Germantown Cafe, then grab a few cupcakes at the Cupcake Collection (we recommend the strawberry, lemonade, and carrot cake). 


We want to know: have you been to Nashville? If you have, what are your go-to places to shop, eat, and see the city? If you haven't, what do you just have to see? Let us know in the comment section below!

The Road Goes On Forever

Hello, and happy Monday to you all! 

We're currently up north again, hitting the studio for a few days. We're so excited to make more music, and to share our upcoming news + release with you guys, but while we all wait (which is easier said than done for those of us with limited amount of patience), we thought we'd share the details from our trip to Macon. We had the incredible opportunity to see Mr. Gregg Allman and his amazing band for the second time last Tuesday, and we made a day and a night of it in Macon. Scroll on for a few shots from our trip to The Big House Museum and Rose Hill Cemetery. 

Hanging with the Brothers at The Big House Museum.  


It was such a privilege to meet Mama Louise, the original owner of H&H Soul Food in Macon. She was at The Big House Museum, and we've never seen anyone prouder than she was of "her babies."

 Post-show, hanging out with the incredibly talented musician and singer, Scott Sharrard. 


At the Bond Tomb at Rose Hill Cemetery. 

At Rose Hill Cemetery, in front of the grave of Elizabeth Reed Napier, the inspiration behind the song In Memory of Elizabeth Reed. 

Paying our respects at Duane and Berry's graves. The view of the cemetery is unbelievable from here; everything is quiet and peaceful.

Unfortunately, we have no photographic evidence of what may very well have been the best pizza in Georgia, but if you ever get the chance to head to Macon (and we highly, highly recommend it!), be sure to stop off at Ingleside Village Pizza in between visiting downtown, where so much music history was made, the lovely folks at The Big House Museum who work extremely hard to preserve the legacy of The Allman Brothers, and Rose Hill Cemetery. It makes for a truly unforgettable day.

The Road Goes on Forever

Our Winter 2016 Necessities Wishlist



Three of my absolute favorite makeup brands, and some of my all-time favorite products. Any shade of Lime Crime's Velvetines collection will do the job, but as a girl who's partial to purple, Jinx is my first pick. This contour kit by SmashBox is my favorite so far, it's just subtle enough not to seem overkill, but definitely gets the job done. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a black eyeliner pen (or YSL.) 
Accessories: Classic gold watch, John Lewis statement bag.
You cannot go wrong with a classic gold watch (like the RUMBATIME) or a fun bag (like the Kin by John Lewis)
Clothing: ASOS Faux-Fur Leopard Print Coat and a comfy sweater in your favorite color!
Life is better in a leopard print coat, like this one from ASOS. Warm, stylish, and fun all at the same time, I won't be leaving town without mine this Winter!
Scent: Chanel No. 5:
Before I bought Chanel No. 5 for the first time, I thought it was overrated and no better than any other perfume - but I was wrong. There's a good reason this classic scent has been around since 1919.  
Tech: Mac Pro 15" Laptop:
As far as laptops go, I'd say this is top of the line. I tried for lots of years to avoid getting a Mac computer, but now that I've switched, I can honestly say I understand why they're so popular. Video and photo editing are a breeze now - as well as preparing new blog posts! I never leave town without it. 
SGFG is one of my favorite records of 2015 (and by my favorite band, of course!), I've had this on repeat since it's release. 


Makeup: Nars VIP Red Semi-Matte Lipstick, Kat Von D Ink Liner
There is never a time where a gorgeous red lipstick isn't appropriate. Whether it's worn with a little black dress, or jeans and a great jacket, it adds a sense of elegance and confidence; it is firetruck red after all. There's no missing it, especially when combined with the Kat Von D Ink Liner. It's been my go-to when I need a quick, long-lasting look that won't smear or smudge. 
Accessories: Everlane The Chunky Wool Beanie, Daniel Wellington 'Classic Sheffield' Watch
Everlane has been one of my favorite brands for years. Between their promise for "radical transparency" in the making and selling of their products and their timeless, high quality basics and accessories, there's no downside! I love everything they make, but for an easy early-morning to late-night look, their Chunky Wool Beanie makes everything look casual and cool. Daniel Wellington watches are the epitome of sleek and minimal, but have such a classic look as well. 
Madewell leather jackets are the stuff of dreams: soft, structured, and perfect for every. single. day. I would never take it off. Ever.  Same for this Zady Chunky Knit Sweater. Zady is another brand with a dedication to sustainable, earth-friendly fashion...a "lifestyle destination for conscious consumers."  
Travel Gear: Everlane 'The Weekender,' 'The Modern Snap Backpack'
I'll admit it: I just love travel gear, and travel gear from Everlane makes it even better. The Weekender is carry-on size and just right for packing the essentials for a quick trip! The Modern Snap Backpack is lovely for me, since I'm not a fan of carrying a purse. It's just big enough to carry all my necessities without looking like I'm headed to my next class. 
Tech: Apple iPad Mini 4
The iPad hardly needs an explanation! It's got all the functionality of a laptop with the easy transportation of a cell phone (plus, it fits perfectly into a backpack or handbag).

Ringing in the New Year with Gregg Allman


Wow. 
Wow. There are some moments that can only be described with that word, moments that leave a girl wide-eyed and speechless and full of that buzzing, golden feeling from head to toe. It's a wonderful feeling, and it's exactly how we left the Atlanta Symphony Hall at 12:30 AM, January 1, 2016. 



As second generation Allman Brothers fans (thanks to a dad who probably wouldn't have had any second thoughts about naming us Duane and Gregg Jr.), it was SUCH a dream come true for us to celebrate the end of one awesome year and the start of an even better one with Gregg Allman! When he's on that stage, it doesn't matter if it's 1970 or minutes from 2016. He's just a beautiful soul who loves the music, and you can see it all over his face. He was even more mindblowingly amazing than we ever imagined he would be (and believe us when we say we imagined him to be incredible). We can't help but feel inspired and encouraged from his soulful performance, not to mention so very, very grateful to have seen such a master at work. Our favorite part of the show? It's hard to choose just one, but a full house singing Midnight Rider at their top of their lungs as we greet 2016 has to win out.


For a taste of what it's like to see this legend live, go check out his "Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA" album. We haven't stopped playing it since we bought it!

We want to know: how did you ring in the New Year? Tell us in the comment section below! 

Outfit Details: 
Beau: ASOS jacket, H&M blouse and pants, Report boots.

Luci: Black Rivet jacket, H&M blouse, Levi's jeans, Franco Sarto boots.

New Year's Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions can be daunting, to make and to keep! We start with good intentions and finish a few weeks later with a shrug and a well meaning, "Maybe tomorrow." Then tomorrow turns into next week, then next month, and then it's December 31st again, and we make another list and determine to make good on it. 

We didn't really make any resolutions last year, beyond a somewhat general desire to live more intentionally and to work harder every day at what we love. That carries over into this year as well. However, we want to follow through with that intentional mindset, so we decided we'd share our three New Year's Resolutions with you all. Read on! 

Beau: 
1. Reach 15,000 likes on our Facebook page
2. Travel to a city we've never been to (like New York). 
3. Try a local coffee shop in every city we visit. 

Luci:
1. Reach 15,000 likes on our Facebook page
2. Practice yoga every day. 
3. Focus on gratitude and positivity in every aspect of my life. 

We want to know: what are your New Year's Resolutions? Tell us in the comments below!
