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!

Music Mania 1 / Rainy Day Mix

Music Mania 1 / Rainy Day Los Angeles is beautiful when it rains. Everything slows down just a little bit (especially if you are on any of our freeways, you come to a complete stop). The air is cleaner and the gloom makes all the hidden color of LA pop. Today is just one of those days to stay home, drink a cortado and watch some Harry Potter but if you can't make that happen the next best thing is to sneak your slippers into work and listen to some rainy day tunes. Below is our favorite mix of instrumentals, chillwave, indie rock and folk rainy day soundtrack.

Get to know more about the music here: braids, desert dwellers, death cab, neko case, daughter, chelsea wolfe, poliça, lovelife, purity ring, bat for lashes, devendra banhart, david & steve gordon, blackbird blackbird, lord huron, jewel, red house painters
