May Moodboard & Mixtape

This is a hefty "M squared" post for the month of the May. My inspiration and creative juices were all out of whack last week, so it's nice to finally have some creativity flowing once again. I've been working on some more short films and videos, beginning with this super short video of mini moments that never surfaced the inter-web. Yesterday, I spent the day on the Hudson River watching some America's Cup racing. I can never turn down some AC boats, along with some hilarious commentary courtesy of friends and family. 


This month's moodboard is all about mustard, the 70s, skinny straps, and bright blue. My favorite blog, the Messy Heads has also been a huge source of inspiration for me lately; from their fashion & beauty posts, to Emma's snapchat story. Good vibes have been um... vibing all around?

For hair and makeup, think sun-streaked hair, messy copper shadow and barely any makeup. Bold brows and nude lips are still going strong in my beauty bag. I think it's fascinating how my film style has been influencing my fashion sense and vice versa. Per example, I've been gravitating towards grainy old film with warm undertones that create nostalgia and breaks through fuzzy memories. 


As for music, it's all over the place with some sick remixes on Soundcloud, to rediscovering Blondie's, "Heart of Glass". The favorites on Soundcloud have been this cover of Coldplay's, "Hymn for the Weekend", and the Steve James remix of ZHU's "Faded". Follow me on Soundcloud here to take a listen to those few, plus a hella lot more. As for those Spotify peeps, here is May's Monthly Mixtape. In the mix, we have some Beastie Boys, Sons of East, and a solid 80s tune from a popular 80s movie. Any guesses? 



April Mood & Mixtape

Decided to combine two of my favorite posts, the monthly moodboard and the playlist, to create the ultimate bit of inspiration on this special Saturday post (aka I fell asleep before posting it yesterday). Pretty sweet, isn't? I'm also working through the Anguilla content slowly but surely. My latest travel guide will be launching next Friday, so be pretty pumped for the best of the best selection on Anguilla.  

Thank you for joining me in the little blog update, now back to the regular programming with this month's moodboard. Of course, no day goes by without I, Sloane C. Kratzman, either wearing denim or thinking about it. A fresh pair just entered my arsenal inspired by the biggest buzzing' bee, Vetements. Note the "inspired," as despite contrary belief, I do have a limit on how much money I'm willing to spend on my denim collection. I suffice by taking a trip to The Vintage Twin, my ultimate haven for vintage Levis. Two ways I plan to sport my latest purchase are with a simplistic white t-shirt and oversized navy blazer, and bringing in a trusty rope belt. Hmmm.... what else is on the board? With festival season (editor's note: I cannot stand that term either, so I sincerely apoglize for bringing it up during "chella" time) around the corner, I'm pairing my jeans with broken in sneakers and scrunched socks, plus taking notes with road-trip ready style, and a tiny nod to the 70s. 

Next on the menu, the April playlist. I mentioned a while ago that I have a cumilvative playlist called "The Soundtrack", so take a listen to that as well.

Another month, another playlist... honestly, how many times do I say that? Answer: every damn month. 

I've decided to change things up a little  and linked the playlist below, take a listen without leaving the page or head to Spotify if you'd wish. (sloane_kratzman). 

Also, random music thought of the day: I always relate Autumn to indie rock or the likes of Vampire Weekend, Tanlines, & co.

Nope, just me? Alrighty then.
