I decided on an impulse a few weeks ago to come to Jamaica to help out with the Pageant of Hope and I expected that Jamaica would be paradise, but I didn’t know how incredible it would be. (Expect another post on that soon!) I just bought my first nice camera and I couldn’t wait to get some good pics! Luckily my friend Katherine Dollar agreed to be my photographer and she did a great job! Continue reading

Noonday Collection Pagoda Necklace
This time of year everyone has gifts on the brain – when I think about gift giving, it’s extra special to me to give a gift that comes from a socially responsible company. Noonday Collection works with 28 artisan groups in over 10 countries, and provides dignified jobs, no interest loans, scholarship programs and emergency assistance to these artisans. In turn, through people’s purchases, we create a marketplace for these artisans here in the U.S. Noonday has an amazing selection of beautiful accessories ranging from jewelry, scarves, purses, etc. You can check out the website and order through my friend Lisa here! (Choose Lisa Thomson as ambassador) Lisa has generously offered to do a giveaway to one of my readers for $25.

Look for our posts every Tuesday on www.12thandbroad.com

December’s playlist is here – I can’t believe this is the last playlist of 2014, it blows my mind how fast this year has gone, a lot of it feels like a blur! This month I was really into old country (Johnny Cash and Vince Gill), more James Bay, and a lot of electro pop like the new Brooke Fraser album Brutal Romantic (to DIE for!) and Tove Lo. I also included a song from a local Nashville favorite Bobby Hamrick – be sure to check out his album in it’s entirety. No lie – I’ve been listening to his entire album off an on throughout this entire year. If you enjoy well written songs, smooth vocals, and James Tayloresque guitar, you’ll love Bobby – truly one of Nashville’s greatest talents. Enjoy – and as always, keep me posted on what your favorite music of the moment is!

Check out a year’s worth of playlists/my favorite songs of this past year!
