welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Austin City Limits Fest Here We Come! Lineup Announcement

ACL FESTIVAL 2013 The airstream is booked (thanks to airbnb.com), the line-up is announced and the tickets are purchased, it's official – Sam and I are going to Austin City Limits Festival! This year we skipped Coachella to do something a little different and ACL fest was the perfect excuse. Can't wait to eat, drink and have some fun. While the festival is our top priority, we do plan on making the most of this trip by exploring what makes Austin so "weird". If you have suggestions for places we MUST check out, please share. We love hearing about new spots and local faves. In the meantime, get excited about the line-up and tell us who you think we should see in the comment section below. As we get closer to the event we'll relieve our picks.
