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 13 / I Wanna Sex You Up

Music Mania 13 / I Wanna Sex You Up While everyone is posting their Valentine's Day DIYs, I decided a music playlist filled with some "hump" day jams was in order. If you are going to craft why not get in the mood and make those DIYs extra special, right? All jokes aside, this tunes list has some oldies to get your swerve on and a single by Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew called Good Sex. Isn't that all we wish for? Well, that and someone to clean the cat box. I guarantee that one will be hitting the charts.

Special thanks to Lau and Nicole for adding a few of their own favorites to the list. Want to get in on the action? Let me know your go-to for knockin the boots and I'll add it to the list.
